Q: Thomas, you are launching a new television program on Daystar. Tell us about it and what viewers can expect from it.
A: SkyWatchTV is unlike any other Christian broadcaster in that we tackle edgy subject matter while also featuring subjects like prophecy, discovery, science and the supernatural from a conservative Christian worldview. A typical show may involve lost civilizations one week, health and diet the next, and dead sea scrolls or ancient giants the week after that. We invite the world’s leading experts onto our programs to explain Biblical archaeology, theology, cutting edge science, health, criminology, and other subjects making headline news relevant to the Church, always keeping the foundation from a biblical orientation.
With the information explosion that has come about since the invention of the internet and people of every age seeking answers to what they perceive as unexplained mysteries, we believe the time for such content is now and that the need for prophetic ministries has never been greater.
Q: How did God lead you to start SkywatchTV?
A: My wife Nita and I have been blessed to be personal friends with many well-known ministry leaders and evangelists over the years and beginning a decade ago with the passing of JR. Church (Prophecy in the News) followed by Noah Hutchings (Southwest Radio Ministries) Dr. Chuck Missler (Konionia House) and several other dear friends, we took note how so many of the prophecy experts of the past were growing old and wondered what theologically well-equipped people would rise up to take their place. Who would fill their shoes? That was a major question for us as we have all entered a time when those inside and outside the Church need to have the world’s events put into biblical context more than ever before. To give credit where due, it was my wife Nita who first suggested to me that we become part of those who could add our voice on television, offering a vehicle of clarity for this generation.
At the dawn of the Internet, we had launched two online print news services where coverage of latest-breaking news and information on cutting-edge stories covering religion, prophecy, discovery, and the supernatural through in-depth investigative reports led to ourselves and our network of writers being referenced and interviewed by some of the biggest names in broadcasting, including: LA Times Syndicate, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, FOX, Time, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Miami Herald, BBC, MSNBC, Michael Savage, SciFi Channel, History Channel, Hannity & Colmes, Sid Roth’s “It’s Supernatural”, The Jim Bakker Show, Celebration Daystar TV, FaithTV, The Harvest Show, The 700 Club, Coast to Coast AM, WorldNetDaily, NewsMax.com, White House Correspondents, and dozens of other newsmagazines and press agencies around the globe. So, it only made sense to add SkyWatch TV as the consummation and new “mothership” of our several subsidiaries including Defender Films and Defender Publishing.
Q: Why is the erosion of foundational truth a key tactic of the devil in the End Times, and how is SkywatchTV combatting that?
A: First of all, secular and biblical scholars, historians, prophets, and even occultists have understood for thousands of years that a very dark time has long been forecast for the world’s future, and that this destiny would not forever be delayed during which the loss of foundational truth and the related risk of sacrificed civil liberties under worldly authoritarianism was not only forecast in Scripture but foreseen by such people as English novelist George Orwell.
In Orwell’s dystopian “1984,” the fictional setting of Oceania depicted the era we have now entered and the four “Ministries” he envisioned under the figurehead of Big Brother–Love, Peace, Plenty and Truth.
The Ministry of Peace actually perpetuated unending wars; the Ministry of Love oversaw suffering and torture against those that would not adhere to the Party line; the Ministry of Plenty weaponized starvation through socialism; and then there was the Ministry of Truth–the propaganda arm of the government media that employed fake-news “Doublethink” and “Newspeak” as the official dialectic of the state.
Today, in America and around the world, the nonfiction version of the Ministry of Truth has materialized and is fully operational through the Orwellian tools of modern Marxists and social media “news” organizations who blacklist Christian and conservative commentary by burying search results and exhibiting bias in their artificial intelligence shadow-banning algorithms and reporting.
The way that SkyWatchTV is combating this war on foundational truth is the same as Daystar—by focusing not on political arguments but rather the preaching of the Gospel, which the Apostle Paul defined as “the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes” (Rom. 1:16). To this Paul added: “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ” (2 Cor. 10:3-5).
Q: What are some of the things you see coming for America and the World, and how should believers be prepared?
A: If you read my last two books—The Wormwood Prophecy and The Messenger—you know they are filled with the most incredible discoveries involving how, exactly three and a half years before the original date set by NASA for the asteroid Apophis (which I argue is biblical Wormwood at the middle of what most evangelicals and some Catholics call the Seven Year Great Tribulation period) to come crashing down on this planet (April 13, 2029), the high holy days of the Feast of Tabernacles will be unfolding on earth. Just a few days before that will be the Feast of Trumpets and 120 days (biblical numerology for the end of mankind) earlier is Pentecost. All three of these festivals are strongly tied by eschatologists to the second coming of Jesus Christ.
Though I do not set dates, the facts above contribute to other reasons I believe mankind has likely entered the last decade of history as it has been known—what prophecy teachers call the Church Age (for example the Essenes of Dead Sea Scrolls fame—who were astonishingly accurate in their visions of the future—predicted over two-thousand years ago that mankind would indeed enter its final age [Jubilee cycle] four years from now in 2025, 3.5 years before Apophis smashes into our world).
Assuming for the moment that I am right, and that the asteroid Apophis is biblical Wormwood and therefore 2029 represents a period around the middle of the Great Tribulation period when the trumpet judgments begin, Monday, October 13, 2025 (April 13, 2029, minus three and a half years), would be the approximate start date of the seven years of Tribulation foreseen in Scripture (see Matthew 24:21, Revelation 7:14, and Daniel 12:1).
2025 was also envisioned ten years ago in a series of studies co-organized by the Atlantic Council and government organizations from Europe, the US, Beijing, Tokyo, Dubai and other partnering nations, that led the US National Intelligence Council and the EU Institute of Security Studies linked to how pen testing works to produce a report titled Global Governance 2025: At A Critical Juncture. In this document the highest-level intelligence agencies in the world determined a Global Government would emerge around 2025 from “an unprecedented threat” that would materialize requiring all nations to lay down their differences and come together in mutual defense of one another against an unprecedented “menace.”
Did they foresee the final global government under who we would call Antichrist?
Q: What is the “Great Reset,” and what is the true force behind it?
A: In 2010, Richard Florida, a sociologist who studies economic cycles in city systems, authored a seminal book called The Great Reset. The primary thesis of this sleeper seed-book is that major paradigm and organizational shifts occur in economic systems when cities lose sight of diversity and creativity. For Florida, it’s the creative classes of individuals who stoke the engine of innovation and hence drive invention and industry. Without such big thinkers, Florida would assert, mankind’s forward momentum grinds to a halt.
Of course, critics of Florida’s metropolitan model disagree on the grounds that he insists to achieve the “great reset” of mankind, cities must be restructured with a new elitist class whose ideologies skew heavily to socialism. Florida’s logical end, therefore, is socialist Darwinism. Such a philosophy paints mankind as ever striving towards greater levels of achievement and centralized organization. First, he moves from living alone in caves to hunter-gatherer tribes, followed by agrarian communities, then to industrialized cities where farming is no longer required, to today’s information-addicted, hashtag-loving big-thinkers who can’t fix their own flat tires, much less grow a tomato—and finally, the cities die and the community disbands. The only way to fix this, Florida asserts, is to inject cities with socialists, who will kick us into a new age of innovation.
If this sounds familiar it is because prophecy experts have assumed for centuries that a prerequisite for the coming of Antichrist would be a “revived” world order—an umbrella under which national boundaries dissolve and ethnic groups, ideologies, religions, and economics from around the world orchestrate a single and dominant sovereignty. At the head of the utopian administration, a single personality will surface. At first, he will appear to be a man of distinguished character, but will ultimately become “a king of fierce countenance” (Daniel 8:23). With imperious decree, he will facilitate a Great Reset and One-World Government, universal religion, and global socialism. Those who refuse his New World Order will inevitably be imprisoned or destroyed until at last he exalts himself “above all that is called God, or that is worshiped, so that he, as God, sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4).
Q: Talk about what’s going on behind the scenes in the top levels of power and influence to summon the antichrist.
A: I have been invited by Daystar in an upcoming show to explain what is unknown to many Americans and connected to what famous freemason and mystic Manly P. Hall described as “The Secret Destiny” of America. This involves as many as 44 signers of the Declaration of Independence who were freemasons of the European persuasion, dedicated to a scheme reflected on the Great Seal of the United States, upon which the mottoes and symbolism relate to both the Egyptian god Osiris and Greek god Apollo specifically, yet as one. Osiris is the dominant theme of the Egyptian symbols, his resurrection and return, while the mottoes of the seal point directly to Apollo, and the eagle, a pagan emblem of Jupiter, to Apollo’s father. For instance, the motto annuit coeptis is from Virgil’s Aeneid, in which Ascanius, the son of Aeneas from conquered Troy, prays to Apollo’s father, Jupiter [Zeus]. Charles Thompson, designer of the Great Seal’s final version, condensed line 625 of book IX of Virgil’s Aeneid, which reads, Juppiter omnipotes, audacibus annue coeptis (“All-powerful Jupiter favors [the] daring undertakings”), to Annuit coeptis (“He approves [our] undertakings”), while the phrase novus ordo seclorum (“a new order of the ages”) was adapted in 1782 from inspiration Thompson found in a prophetic line in Virgil’s Eclogue IV: Magnus ab integro seclorum nascitur ordo (Virgil’s Eclogue IV, line 5), the interpretation of the original Latin being, “And the majestic roll of circling centuries begins anew.” This phrase is from the Cumaean Sibyl (a pagan prophetess of Apollo, identified in the Bible as a demonic deceiver) and involves the future birth of a divine son, spawned of “a new breed of men sent down from heaven” when he receives “the life of gods, and sees Heroes with gods commingling.” According to the prophecy, this is Apollo, son of Jupiter (Zeus), who returns to Earth through mystical “life” given to him from the gods when the deity Saturn returns to reign over the heavens in a new Golden Pagan Age—what the alignment of the planets Jupiter and Saturn on Dec. 21, 2020, which many (including pastors) erroneously referred to as the “Christmas Star” (according to the Greek text, the Maji followed an asteroid whose trajectory led them to Bethlehem, not a stationary star alignment). It was the closest the two heavenly bodies have appeared together in approximately 800 years and did indeed forecast the arrival of a “messianic son”—the false one, whose spirit will reside in the Beast of Revelation 17:8.
From the beginning of the prophecy referenced on the Great Seal of the United States we read:
Now the last age by Cumae’s Sibyl sung Has come and gone, and the majestic roll Of circling centuries begins anew: Justice returns, returns old Saturn’s reign, With a new breed of men sent down from heaven. Only do thou, at the boy’s birth in whom The iron shall cease, the golden race arise, Befriend him, chaste Lucina; ‘tis thine own Apollo reigns.
He shall receive the life of gods, and see Heroes with gods commingling, and himself Be seen of them, and with his father’s worth Reign o’er a world.…
Assume thy greatness, for the time draws nigh, Dear child of gods, great progeny of Jove [Jupiter/Zeus]! See how it totters—the world’s orbed might, Earth, and wide ocean, and the vault profound, All, see, enraptured of the coming time!
According to Virgil and the Cumaean Sibyl, whose prophecy formed the novus ordo seclorum of the Great Seal of the United States, the New World Order begins during a time of chaos when the earth and oceans are tottering—a time like today. This is when the “son” of promise arrives on earth—Apollo incarnate—a pagan savior born of “a new breed of men sent down from heaven” when “heroes” and “gods” are blended together. This sounds eerily similar to what the Watchers did during the creation of Genesis 6 Giants and why many believe Antichrist also represents the return of the Nephilim. But to understand why such a fanciful prophecy about Apollo, son of Jupiter, returning to Earth should be important to Christians: In ancient literature, Jupiter was the Roman replacement of Yahweh as the greatest of the gods—a “counter-Yahweh.” His son Apollo is a replacement of Jesus, a “counter-Jesus.” This Apollo comes to rule the final New World Order, when “Justice returns, returns old Saturn’s [Satan/Lucifer as the god of the air] reign.” The ancient goddess Justice, who returns Satan’s reign (Saturnia regna, the pagan golden age), was known to the Egyptians as Ma’at and to the Greeks as Themis, while to the Romans she was Lustitia. Statues and reliefs of her adorn thousands of government buildings and courts around the world, especially in Washington D.C., as familiar Lady Justice, blindfolded and holding scales and a sword. She represents the enforcement of secular law and is, according to the Sibyl’s conjure, the authority that is going to require global compliance to the zenith of Satan’s dominion concurrent with the coming of Apollo. What’s more, the Bible’s accuracy concerning this subject is alarming, including the idea that “pagan justice” will require surrender to a satanic system in a final world order under the rule of Jupiter’s son.
In the New Testament, the identity of the god Apollo, repeat-coded in the Great Seal of the United States as the Masonic “messiah” who returns to rule the earth, is the same spirit—verified by the same name—that will inhabit the political leader of the end-times New World Order. According to key Bible prophecies, the Antichrist will be the progeny or incarnation of the ancient spirit, Apollo. Second Thessalonians 2:3 warns: “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition [Apoleia; Apollo]” (emphasis added).
Revelation 17:8 likewise ties the coming of Antichrist with Apollo, revealing that the Beast shall ascend from the bottomless pit and enter him:
The Beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the Bottomless Pit, and go into perdition [Apolia, Apollo]: and they that dwell on the Earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the Beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
Among other things, this means the Great Seal of the United States is a prophecy, hidden in plain sight by the Founding Fathers for more than two hundred years, foretelling the return of a terrifying demonic god who seizes control of Earth in the new order of the ages. This supernatural entity was known and feared in ancient times by different names: Apollo, Osiris, and even farther back as Nimrod, whom Masons consider to be the father of their institution.
Q: Is a global pandemic connected to the End Times? Talk about how it relates to events in the Book of Revelations.
A: If the asteroid Apophis turns out to be biblical Wormwood, as I believe it will, it will collide with earth in the middle of the Great Tribulation period, generally around the same moment in dispensational history as when the Mark of the Beast arrives. As I believe Apophis is carrying an alien microbe, I suggest it has a hitchhiker virus living off of it that, on impact with our terra firma, will be jettisoned into the atmosphere and rain down a global contagion that will make Covid-19 look like a day at the park.
Could this be the “trigger” that results in a global pandemic leading to a mandatory universal vaccine? The Mark of the Beast?
If such a pandemic ensued from an extraterrestrial virus against which mankind has no immunity, and the period between when a person contracted the virus and death was only a matter of days, a desperate cry for a cure would encircle the globe overnight.
Now imagine a possibility that came to me one day when watching the movie “I Am Legend” starring Will Smith. If you’ve seen the film, you know it starts out with a doctor on television claiming a cure to cancer via a chimeric vaccine. The world celebrates as the global inoculation does indeed cure cancer. However, because the vaccine was a blend of human and animal genetics, it ultimately leads to a human form of rabies that nearly wipes out all life on earth. One virologist (Will Smith) appears to be the only man on earth naturally immune to the disease, and he sets out to find a cure using his blood for a new vaccine.
The show I Am Legend made me wonder if in the future a global pandemic would ensue only to have one man step forward whose blood singularly holds the key to a cure and it turns out, he is the Antichrist and, like a dark version of communion, one can only be healed by receiving his flesh and blood via the ‘mark’ or vaccination of the beast.
If one imagines the global chaos of such a pandemic, the concept of how the Antichrist “causes all, both small and great,” to receive this mark becomes clearer. When looking into the eyes of dying children, parents, or a spouse, it would be incredibly difficult to allow oneself to die or to encourage others to do the same when a “cure” was readily available. Lastly, this scenario would mean that nobody would be allowed to “buy or sell” in the marketplace without the Mark-cure due to the need to quarantine all but the inoculated (a real-world possibility we are witnessing right now during the coronavirus), thus fulfilling all aspects of the Mark of the Beast prophecy.
Q: Many prophetic voices have said we are on the cusp of a Great Revival. How do we know this is coming, and how should this embolden believers?
A: I myself have said numerous times lately that social conditions of late seem very familiar to this old “Jesus Freak.” I recall how the Jesus People/Jesus Freak movement that some today consider the 4th Great Awakening was an unprogrammed phenomenon that began all over the world through non-clergy civilians and largely in the U.S. through resistance to the Vietnam war and establishment Government policies.
Like today, the 1960’s was a time of radical voices. Most of the rallies, marches, riots, protests, and demonstrations—many of which turned violent—initialized as a result of individuals wishing to see the end of the war and racial tension in trade for peace, but it soon became something completely different altogether. As the war in Vietnam escalated, so, too, did the African-American civil rights movement, the Women’s Rights movement, and the Sexual Revolution (among others). Even before Martin Luther King Jr. gave his 1963 “I Have a Dream” speech, the “dream” of peaceful and equalized interaction between human factions (racial, political, international, genders, etc.) inspired groups from coast to coast to become active in their quests for utopia. The more the passion grew, the louder the voices became, and the mission of peace was intermittently derailed over and over again through forces that were naturally opposite the cause: violence, demands, strong-arming, suppression, anger, imposition, and constant conflict.
After several years of this paradox, the United States lost much hope in the idea of true peace and love—the brand of which overpowered skirmishes and debate, bringing an entire nation into reconciliation for the good of mankind. And, as Christian history has often showed, it is when all hope is perceived as lost that people fall on their knees and the answer is found.
The answer—as witnessed by hippies, flower children, wives, mothers, husbands, fathers, grandparents, teens, children, politicians, and activists—could only be found in the Gospel.
Is this about to happen again? I pray so.
Q: One of the topics you often talk about is Transhumanism. What is it, and what are some of the things happening behind the scenes that believers should know about?
A: In recent years, astonishing technological developments have pushed the frontiers of humanity toward far-reaching morphological transformation that promises in the very near future to redefine what it means to be human. An international, intellectual, and fast-growing cultural movement known as transhumanism intends the use of genetics, robotics, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology and synthetic biology—what I have coined GRINS technologies—as tools that will radically redesign our minds, our memories, our physiology, our offspring, and even perhaps—as Joel Garreau in his best-selling book, Radical Evolution, claims—our very souls. The technological, cultural, and metaphysical shift now underway unapologetically forecasts a future dominated by this new species of unrecognizably superior humans, and applications under study now to make this dream a reality are being funded by thousands of government and private research facilities around the world. As recent programs on Joni Table Talk revealed, this includes, among other things, rewriting human DNA and combining humans with beasts, a fact that some university studies and transhumanists believe will not only alter our bodies and souls but ultimately could open a door to contact with unseen intelligence.
As a result, new modes of perception between things visible and invisible are expected to challenge the church in ways that are historically and theologically unprecedented. I discuss these issues because without comprehending what is quickly approaching in related disciplines of research and development, vast numbers of believers could be severely challenged by the most fantastic—and far-reaching—supernatural implications.
I also believe the power operating behind this scheme to integrate human-animal-machine interfaces in order to reengineer humanity is not new. The ancient, malevolent force is simply repackaging itself these days as the forward-thinking and enlightened progress needed for the next step in human evolution.
Perhaps such technology and transhuman aspirations are the fulfillment of Matthew 24:37 where Jesus warned, “as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”
Q: There are a lot of conversations happening surrounding Artificial Intelligence. What do we as believers need to know, and how could this be a precursor to something like the Mark of the Beast?
A: Many futurists and technology experts believe mankind could be reduced any day now to the status of domestic animals in the minds of artificial intelligence, as Technological Singularity—that magical future moment that many futurists and tech experts believe could be imminent—gives birth overnight to a synthetic god who suddenly comes online as a conscious, living super-mind, immensely more powerful than human beings. I have speculated for some time now that this could be what is described in Revelation 13:15 where it says:
And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
Q: Previously you have spoken with us about Apophis. What is it, and why should believers pay attention to this?
A: In June 2004, astronomers at the Kitt Peak National Observatory detected a sizable asteroid heading in the direction of earth. Subsequent efforts made later in 2004 by a team at the Siding Spring Survey in Australia identified the asteroid as Apophis (named after the ancient Egyptian spirit of evil, darkness and destruction, a malevolent force that cannot be stopped according to legend). Immediately, possibility of collision of the celestial body with our planet became a focus of calculation and preparation on behalf of preventative efforts by experts across the world.
The enormous asteroid Apophis will reportedly pass disturbingly close to Earth on April 13, 2029 (approximately 8 years from ), according to a statement released by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology. In fact, NASA admits Apophis’ proximity in 2029 will be so close to Earth that it will “put some of our orbiting satellites in peril” and even be visible in the daytime sky.
Assuming for the moment that Apophis is biblical Wormwood (as I believe) and that 2029 would thus represent a period sometime around the middle of the Great Tribulation period when the trumpet judgments begin, Monday, October 13, 2025 (April 13, 2029 minus 3.5 years) would thus be the approximate start date for the dreaded 7-years of tribulation foreseen in Scripture (see Matthew 24:21, Revelation 7:14, Daniel 12:1).
For evangelical dispensationalists (and some Catholic prophecy believers) this timing may seem an ominous sign that a “Rapture” of the Church is soon to occur (the eschatological event when all true Christians who are alive will be transformed into glorious bodies in an instant and joined by the resurrection of dead believers who ascend with them into Heaven). Depending on one’s particular belief this would place the last possible date for a Pretribulation Rapture happening sometime around October 13, 2025, while for Prewrath Rapture believers this equals a departure time from Earth just before 2029, and for a Posttribulation Rapture a taking-up/catching-away near Wednesday, October 13, 2032.
Bible prophecy notwithstanding, hopefully Apophis will pass just shy of earth in those few years from now because the alternative truly represents a biblical-proportion risk to life on earth. Measuring 370 meters across and weighing an estimated 20 million metric tons, Apophis is traveling at 28,000 miles an hour, a mind-bending mass and potential inertia velocity encounter most people cannot begin to fathom.
Q: Talk about how the recently exposed child sex rings like the one involving Jeffrey Epstein is connected to the occult.
A: In my bestselling book Shadowland I detail well-connected billionaire and convicted sex offender and trafficker Jeffrey Epstein and his association with powerful financial, political, foreign, and domestic spy agencies; organized crime and intelligence assets; private research facilities like the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; monster media conglomerates including the New York Times; and countless other cultural elites (hundreds of whom he likely was blackmailing. His infamous little black book held the names of over a thousand such individuals he secretly recorded during sordid orgies at his private island and luxury homes using bugging devices, two-way mirrors, and cameras hidden inside walls where acts were recorded connected to dark, pedophilic sex magic.
Sometimes the truth remains unknown until after the perpetrators are deceased, such as is reflected in the recently released FBI files containing “over 300 pages relating to decades-old investigations into the ‘Finders,’ which we investigated in our new documentary, Silent Cry: The Darker Side of Trafficking. Analysis of the eye-opening documents, which include police reports and correspondence between various agencies, reveals that the group was a satanic cult and suggests deliberate obstruction of justice by feds and the CIA, which is all the more relevant in light of the recent attention to sexual and child abuse scandals connected with ritual animal and possibly human sacrifices as both book and film mentioned above argue happened on Epstein Island.
Even so, sometimes people do go to prison, especially when they’re not rich and connected and/or have been compromised like Epstein.
A while back, president Trump responded to one such arrest by holding a press conference in which he announced his plan to bring the “full force and weight” of the US government against this “epidemic of human trafficking.” This caused former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney—who once challenged the elite on the floor of the House about their participation in sex slavery—to warn Trump that if he really did go after pedophiles, he should plan to make arrests of both Republicans and Democrats reaching all the way to the top in Washington, DC.
Underpinning her allegation was a 2006 Immigration and Customs Enforcement investigation into the purchase of child pornography that “turned up more than 250 civilian and military employees of the Defense Department—including some with the highest available security clearance.” Mysteriously, the Pentagon refused to further investigate these culprits.
So widespread is this problem that in July 2019, Representatives Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Abigail Spanberger (D-VA) introduced bipartisan legislation titled “End National Defense Network Abuse” to stop pervasive use of Department of Defense (DOD) computers that have been procuring and sharing pornographic images of children by thousands of US government employees.
And you should note, the seedy underbelly of the world’s powerful elite are aggressive about shielding these secrets.
For example, not one, but two, former GOP senators from Arkansas and Oklahoma were investigating child trafficking involving high-profile individuals (including sitting judges) when in 2019 they were found murdered. According to numerous reports, Linda Collins-Smith (AR) was about to go public with her findings when she was shot to death in her home. Just two days later former Oklahoma Sen. Jonathan Nichols, who purportedly was also investigating pedophiles and sex-slave traffickers, was found dead in his Norman, Oklahoma, residence.
In July 2019, the home of Mexican investigative reporter Lydia Cacho Ribeiro (on whom I believe the female heroine in the new Rambo: Last Blood movie is lightly based) was similarly broken into. Unidentified individuals killed her two dogs and stole her laptop, recorders, and hard drives “containing information about sexual abuse cases the reporter was investigating.”
According to our friend Jaco Booyens, a tireless proponent of the war on human trafficking featured in Silent Cry, the examples above are just the tip of a much larger iceberg.
