I won’t do a full story on the notorious paedophile Jimmy Savile, because this is already widely known. Furthermore Savile was not very close to the movie industry (but more to the British Royal family and music industry)...

Crimewatch host Jill Dando was told that DJs, celebrities and other staff of BBC were involved in sexual abuse. She passed a file to senior management in the mid-1990s, which included sexual abuse by “surprisingly big names”.
She was disgusted that images of children and information on how to join this paedophile ring was freely available.
Of course, nothing was done...

In 1998, Jill Dando joined a campaign to help children spot paedophiles.
Dando was also looking into the death of her friend, Chelsea vice-chairman Matthew Harding, who was killed in a mysterious helicopter crash in 1996.
On 26 April 1999, aged 37, Jill Dando was shot dead with a single muffled bullet to the skull on the doorstep of her home in west London, moments after stepping out of her car.
Part-time stuntman Barry George was jailed for the killing in 2001, but his conviction was overturned in August 2008 following the emergence of fresh evidence. The crime is still “unsolved”.

Only after he died, in 2012, some of Jimmy Savile’s crimes were exposed. Dando’s fellow BBC presenter Sally Jones said that Savile had tried to kiss and grope her in a lift in the late 1980s. DJ Liz Kershaw and former Countryfile presenter Miriam O’Reilly have also claimed they suffered sexual harassment at the BBC in the 1980s.

Starting in 2011, investigative reporter Liz MacKean who exposed Jimmy Savile and the culture of paedophile protection at the BBC.
MacKean quit in 2013, after executives shelved her investigative work into the paedophile ring surrounding Jimmy Savile. The BBC spent the next few years destroying her reputation.
On 18 August 2017, Liz MacKean was found dead (aged 52). According to the BBC she died of “complications from a stroke”:

Liz MacKean told Panorama after she was told by the editor of Newsnight, Peter Rippon, that her investigation wouldn’t be broadcast by the BBC:
I was very unhappy the story didn’t run because I felt we’d spoken to people who collectively deserved to be heard. And they weren’t heard.
I thought that that was a failure… I felt we had a responsibility towards them. We got them to talk to us, but above all, we did believe them. And so then, for their stories not to be heard, I felt very bad about that. I felt, very much, that I’d let them down.
See the following video, with BBC producer Meirion Jones, Liz MacKean, and George Entwistle (a BBC-executive involved in the cover-up).

It’s apparently quite dangerous to work for the BBC.
In August 2014, former BBC DJ, Mike Smith, died of “heart surgery complications”.
BBC comic Rik Mayall, also died of a heart-related “incident”, despite his wife declaring on the day of his death: “At least we know it’s not his heart as he’s just had a check-up and been given the all-clear”. Earlier Rik Mayall had been nearly killed in a quad-bike accident.

BBC-presenter Peaches Geldof tweeted the names of child-abusers connected to Ian Watkins. She was found dead of a “heroin-overdose”.
BBC children’s presenter Mark Speight was implicated in the death of his girlfriend Natasha Collins in 2008. He subsequently disappeared and was found hanging. Mark Speight had worked with convicted paedophile Rolf Harris. Mark Speight was a spokesman for Childline, which supposedly protects abused children.
BBC DJ Kevin Greening reportedly killed himself in a “gay bondage session that went wrong”.

According to the following story, also the deaths of Kristian Digby, Kevin Greening, and Paula Yates are suspicious: ... 76850.html

This isn’t quite paedophilia, but it’s about famous actress and member of the CFR, Angelina Jolie, telling how she was initiated into a secret society in a sick S & M ritual (this video WAS removed).

Jodie Foster told in an interview this month that a producer was a little too interested in her body when she was only 14 (starting at 5:30):
He had me come to the appointment and was talking to me, and asked me to take my jacket off and turn around so he could see my body.
You know, I was 14 and kinda chubby with pimples and whatever. But yeah…my agent went to his office and punched him in the face.

It remains a mystery to me that sometimes I try very hard to find information without success, and at other times I find interesting information without really trying.
I’ve found a huge number of victims of sexual abuse in the movie industry, it´s almost as if the movies specifically look for victims of child abuse.
Firestarter wrote:Natalie Wood co-starred with James Dean in “Rebel without a cause”. The 16-year-old Wood landed the role by having sex with the director of the movie - Nicholas Ray (44 at the time).
During filming Dennis Hopper was the next to get young Natalie Wood in bed (I guess by now 17): ... haracters/
Suzanne Finstad conducted 400 interviews for a biography on Natalie Wood (born Natasha Gurdin in San Francisco in 1938).
Even before she had an affair with Nicholas Ray, at 15, she had a “serious friendship” with the 38-year-old Frank Sinatra.
I haven´t found a second source to confirm that Sinatra was a paedophile. Sinatra wasn´t only one of the most famous singers of the 20th century, but also a successful actor and Knight of Malta...

At 16, Wood was raped by an unnamed prominent, married actor-producer and then forced (by her mother) to not reveal the incident. It has been rumoured that this was Kirk Douglas.
Bizarrely Finstad claims that Wood ended the first of her 2 marriages to Robert Wagner when she found him in bed with another man: ... 897775.php

Before Oprah Winfrey became world famous (and filthy rich) as a talk show host she had already been an actress.
Oprah Winfrey was sexually abused from the ages 9 to 14 in Milwaukee.
Oprah was 9 years old when she was first sexually abused; she was raped by her 19-year-old cousin. Within the next few years, she would face more abuse from a family friend and an uncle.
Oprah kept this a secret for many years.

At 14 years, Oprah found out she was pregnant. Around this time her mother sent her to a detention home. She went to live with her father instead.
She was able to hide her pregnancy from her parents for 7 months. She went into early labour on the same day she told her father about the pregnancy. She delivered a boy, who died within 2 weeks.
Oprah´s father told her that this would give her a second chance: ... ey-2535832
See the interview.

Oprah has said that the real change came about when she was 16 and first read Maya Angelou's autobiography. It completely transformed her outlook.
Writer/actress Maya Angelou was a victim of childhood rape herself: ... -79582387/
Angelou’s sometimes-absentee mother, Vivian Baxter, had a steel will and several careers of her own. She was an inadvertent player in an early, formative trauma in Angelou’s life. When Angelou was 8 and briefly living with Baxter in St. Louis, her mother’s boyfriend raped Angelou. The man was arrested, convicted and released; soon after, he was found beaten to death. Believing she had caused the killing because she had told of the rape, Angelou refused to speak for several years; only her beloved older brother, Bailey, could coax her to talk.

Queen Latifah (born Dana Elaine Owens) was a successful rapper before she starred in many movies. In 2009, Queen Latifah first told that she had been the victim of sexual abuse for a short period of time when she was a child by a teenager charged with her care.
She never told anybody until she was 22 (when her brother died): ... xual-abuse

In 2014, actress Rosie Perez published a memoir in which she wrote about being the victim of childhood sexual abuse: ... index.html
In her memoir, Perez also writes for the first time that her half-brother sexually assaulted her twice during her childhood while she visited her mother's house. When she told her mother, Perez writes that she was smacked and punished for lying.
Nobody was prosecuted in the case, Perez said in an interview. She said she hopes her siblings are getting help to break the cycle of abuse, she said, because they were all victims.

In 2010, actor Gabriel Byrne revealed that he had been sexually abused between the age of 8 and 11 by 2 Christian Brothers in Ireland while he was training to be a priest.
This experience made Gabriel Byrne an outspoken critic of the Catholic Church: ... -sex-abuse
Unfortunately, I experienced some sexual abuse. It was a known and admitted fact of life amongst us that there was this particular man, and you didn't want to be left in the dressing room with him.
It took many years to come to terms with it and to forgive those incidents that I felt had deeply hurt me.
It didn't go on over a prolonged period but it happened at a very, very vulnerable moment.

In 2002, Derek Luke talked about his role as “Antwone Fisher” and revealed that he had been molested when he was a child: ... ranscript/
I was molested. I try not to emphasize on me because I feel Antwone had a harder life. I think sometimes people feel it may be selfish as an actor to use what you drew on to subtract from the real story. My whole thing was I felt free when I read the script. I felt like maybe I get to hide behind the script and tell my story. I was molested, and I have my own personal fight.

Re: The totalitarian state

Post by Firestarter »

I’ve found a few lists with victims of abuse, but I don’t link to those overviews as most of them don’t focus on paedophilia, or are unreliable (for example Roseanne Barr...).

A lot of people know Charlie Chaplin, born Charles Spencer Chaplin in England (1889-1977), as the biggest star of the silent movie era, but not many people know that he was also a paedophile.
Chaplin (29 years) met 16-year-old actress Mildred Harris at a party in 1918. Chaplin swiftly seduced the girl. Mildred lied to him that she was pregnant and they got married. Pretty soon, Mrs. Chaplin was indeed pregnant. A boy was born on 7 July 1919 but died 3 days later. In April 1920, Mildred Chaplin began divorce proceedings, citing “cruelty”.
At 35, during filming “The Gold Rush” Chaplin began an affair with the 15-year-old actress Lita Grey (born Lillita McMurray), who he had known since she was 8. After Lita told Chaplin that she was pregnant, they married in secret in Mexico on 26 November 1924 when she was only 16. On 5 May 1925 Charles Chaplin Jr. was born. Lita filed for divorce in 1927, claiming that Chaplin had pulled a gun on her and tried to make her have an abortion. Lita described Chaplin as “a human sex machine” who could make love 6 times a night without fatigue. Lita was awarded $625,000, with a $200,000 trust fund for their sons — at the time the largest divorce settlement in American history.

Chaplin married another 2 young women; Paulette Goddard who was 22 when they met in 1932 and 18-year-old Oona O’Neill in 1943 (when Chaplin was 54), with whom he had another 8 children.
Chaplin claimed that he had made love with more than 2,000 women; it seems probable that a lot of them were young: ... -them.html

The actor Stephen Collins exposed himself to 3 teenage girls in 1973, 1982 and 1994.
According to Collins, he twice exposed himself to a pre-teen girl in 1973, when he was 25 years old. He also had another inappropriate encounter with this girl in his home: "When the girl and I were watching TV alone, I moved her hand in such a way that caused her to touch me inappropriately.

Collins (67 years) admitted that his behaviour was "inexcusable", and "I deeply regret the mistakes I've made and any pain I have caused these three women.
I admit to, apologize for and take responsibility for what I did.
Collins has never faced criminal charges and insists he’s no paedophile.
After finding this out, his ex Rosie O'Donnell, who had been sexually abused herself, wrote an angry message about Stephen Collins: ... 73-to-1994

Clara Bow was the movie screen's first sex symbol in the 1920s. Clara said that that at age 16 she was raped by her father.
After Clara announced that she wanted to become an actress, her mother Sarah threatened to kill her with a knife: ... ood-stars/

Marilyn Monroe (born Norma Jean Mortensen on 1 June 1926) spent most of her childhood in foster families. Her mother, Gladys Baker, placed her daughter with foster parents until Norma was seven. In 1933, her mother bought a house and took Marilyn to live with her, but shortly after Gladys had the first of a series of mental crises. Gladys's best friend, Grace, was appointed Norma's guardian.
After a time in other foster homes, Norma returned to live with Grace and her husband "Doc", who was sexually attracted to Norma. So Norma was moved out to Grace’s great-aunt Olive in California, where she was sexually assaulted by Olive's son.
In 1942, 16-year-old Norma went to live with Grace and her husband again. Grace offered Norma a choice between marrying 21-year-old James Dougherty, or (back) the orphanage. On 19 June 1942, 3 weeks after her sixteenth birthday, Norma Jean Baker married Jimmy Dougherty.
In June 1945, Norma Jean was pictured in Yank magazine. She was renamed Marilyn Monroe, but becoming a famous star was surprisingly difficult: ... bNP4oQbPqw

By age 14, Rita Hayworth (born Margarita “Rita” Carmen Cansino) was performing with her father Eduardo Cansino in nightclubs. Rita’s father presented her as his wife. Rita had been the victim of regular rape and abuse at the hands of her father since she was a child.
Rita Hayworth married 5 times, one of her husbands was Orson Welles, who told that Rita had been the victim of child sexual abuse. Rita apparently had mental problems: ... -32-no-20/

At age 15, Louise Brooks left Kansas for New York. Louise was expected to “entertain” her benefactors, to get film roles and gifts in return. A hotel employee described her room as a “bordello” and the hotel management kicked her out.
When she was 9, Louise had been molested by the 45-year-old man Mr Feathers:
I've often wondered what effect Mr Feathers had on my life. He must have had a great deal to do with forming my attitude to sexual pleasure. For me, nice, soft, easy men were never enough- there had to be an element of domination.
When Brooks told her mother, her mother blamed her for leading him on:

During the late 1950s and early 1960s, Sandra Dee (born Alexandra Zuck in 1942) was the teen ideal.
In 1950, her mother Mary married Eugene Douvan, who was 40 years her senior. While they were dating, he began fondling little Alexandra. She went with them on their honeymoon to Atlantic City, where they got in bed together with Alexandra sleeping in the middle. Her stepfather pretty soon was having sex with Alexandra. By the time she was 11, Alexandra knew it wasn't right.
Her mother simply ignored what was going on. In 1956 her stepfather died, which left Alexandra devastated:

In March 2006, Teri Hatcher first told that she had been molested for 3 years by her uncle, Richard Stone, starting when she was 5. Hatcher said she felt "shame" for getting in the car of her uncle, because she knew what would happen "Feeling the shame like you are at fault, it's something you did".
Hatcher only decided to tell about the abuse, after she saw a video message from the family of Sarah Van Cleemput, who committed suicide at 14 years of age after being abused by the same paedophile. After she went to police, he pleaded guilty to 4 counts of child molestation in Sarah's case and was sentenced to 14 years in prison: ... guish.html

As a child, Angela Shelton was molested by her father:
He would lay out on this table, and me and my sister would have to use lotion, and he would show us how to do it and move our hands up and down. And I shouldn't know how to do that to my father, you know?
Aside from being molested, he also beat the blank out of us. You know, we were bare butt, belts, the whole nine yards.
Angela lived with her father from the time her parents divorced when she was 3.
Her stepmother assisted her father in the abuse, and her stepsister Lisa was only 5 when her father would use physical objects like crayons to abuse her, instead of actual intercourse.

For 5 years, the abuse went on, until one day in 1981 her stepbrother Stephen told his real father what Angela’s father was doing, who called Social Services. Angela's mother, JoAnn, was shocked. Angela's father was never criminally charged, because they didn’t press charges.
Stephen had also been abused by Angela's father, and for 3 years Stephen also molested Angela and his own sister Lisa. Stephen later apologised to Angela, but according to Angela he isn’t to blame, because they were all victims: ... 9-03-2004/

Eve Ensler is best known for her controversial play “The Vagina Monologues”, but she has also starred in a couple of movies.
Ensler was sexually abused by her father for years, starting when she was 5:

In 2009, actor, director, writer and producer Tyler Perry for the first time revealed details about the sexual, physical and mental abuse he suffered as a child.
Tyler says he was 5 or 6 when he was molested for the first time. While building a birdhouse with an adult male neighbour, the man put his hands in Tyler’s pants. Tyler says: “And I felt my body betraying me, because I felt an erection at that age”.
Tyler later endured sexual molestation at the hands of a male nurse and a man he knew from church:
[The man from church] used God and the Bible against me to justify a lot of the things that were going on. It was so horrible. And that was my first sexual experience, with this man performing oral sex on me as a boy.
When Tyler was only 10, he was also molested by the mother of a friend. Tyler was over at his friend’s house, when she came in the room wearing lingerie and after locking her son in the bathroom:
I’m 10. And she says, ‘You want to go home?’ She lights a cigarette. She takes the key. She said, ‘Here’s the key.’ I come over to get it, and she puts it inside of herself and she tells me to get it. So I—I get the key, but I feel my body betraying me again because I felt an erection.
She pulled me on top of her.
Perry also suffered brutal physical and mental abuse at the hands of his father Emmitt Perry Sr. The random, violent beatings continued until Tyler was 19: ... ving-hell/

By the time Tom Arnold was 4, his mother would often take off during the day and left Tom with the guy across the street.
The babysitter called it ”a game” (including penetration) and at the end he gave Arnold a candy bar. Tom “knew it was strange at age 4. He would obviously touch me and do things to me and I knew that it hurt… I do remember having bleeding and my dad was concerned about that”.
Tom felt ashamed that he took the candy, as he wasn’t allowed candy at his own house.

According to Tom, the abuse lasted until he was 7. By then, the man was 22, and because he resisted more, he threatened Tom’s father:
One day he had a gun and he pulled it out and came out to the front porch. My dad was getting out of his car, he [had just gotten] home from work. And [the man] said ‘I could shoot your dad between the eyes from here.’ And he could! It was like, across the street and so that was a warning to me.
Ironically the ploy backfired, because Tom (7) felt the need to protect his father. So he got a hold of the gun of his dad, and the next day walked over to the house of his abuser with the gun, and shouted for him. Tom said that the abuse stopped after that (I’m not sure immediately) and that his parents divorced as his mother was having an affair.
With the help of a private investigator, Arnold later found his abuser and confronted him at his office. Arnold felt pure joy as he did: ... childhood/

Tom Arnold first spoke out about being sexually abused at the beginning of the 1990s. His then wife, Roseanne Barr, invented the story that she too had been sexually abused as a child.
She later blamed the people around her that they didn’t stop her from telling this story. She almost admitted that she made this story up - EDIT "new" link:

In reading these stories, I conclude that for the following reasons child victims don’t speak out:
1) They don’t know that it’s wrong, especially when they’re young when the abuse happens. Some of them don’t even blame the abuser until later when they understand what happened.
2) They don’t know who to turn to. This is especially problematic when their own parents are the abuser or push them into sex with powerful studio executives, directors or actors to further their career. Some of these children even get blamed for the abuse after they report what has happened.
3) They feel ashamed about what’s happened, blaming themselves.

Re: The totalitarian state

I don’t think that I’m the only one to have missed this story.

According to the Pentagon’s inspector general’s report of August 2016, there was $6.5 trillion missing from the Pentagon budget. Most people argue that it can’t be for 2015 alone, since the entire Pentagon budget for 2015 was a little over $600 billion.
I’m no accountant, but according to normal accounting practices every year the account is finished. Evidently the Pentagon doesn’t account very “normal”. Maybe the $6.5 trillion is a cumulative missing sum for years, but how it’s written it looks like this trillion dollar fraud is only for 2015.
A trillion that’s 12 zeroes; $6.5 trillion is - 6,500,000,000,000 USD.

According to this report the money isn’t only “missing”, but the Department of Defence made false transactions and deleted 16,500 records. Let’s call that an “accident”, surely this wasn’t done on purpose!
An example of accountancy tricks used, is a net unsupported adjustment of $99.8 billion made to the $0.2 billion balance reported for Accounts Receivable.
If the Army is making up numbers — and that’s what “unsupported adjustments” means — nobody, not even a congressional oversight committee or inspector general, knows where the money went, or whether funds were stolen.
I can tell you that if I find out that my wallet is “missing”, I have only 2 explanations: I’ve misplaced it myself or it was stolen…

In 1996, Congress passed a law requiring all federal agencies to comply with federal accounting standards. At this point, 2 decades later, the Pentagon has yet to comply with this law, and therefore cannot be audited: ... ing-error/

EDIT - the summary of the report and the full report have been deleted (from, here's a link to another story about this: ... 0-836.html
The Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Financial Management & Comptroller) (OASA[FM&C]) and the Defense Finance and Accounting Service Indianapolis (DFAS Indianapolis) did not adequately support $2.8 trillion in third quarter journal voucher (JV) adjustments and $6.5 trillion in yearend JV adjustments1 made to AGF data during FY 2015 financial statement compilation.2 The unsupported JV adjustments occurred because OASA(FM&C) and DFAS Indianapolis did not prioritize correcting the system deficiencies that caused errors resulting in JV adjustments, and did not provide sufficient guidance for supporting system generated adjustments.

In addition, DFAS Indianapolis did not document or support why the Defense Departmental Reporting System Budgetary (DDRS-B), a budgetary reporting system, removed at least 16,513 of 1.3 million records during third quarter FY 2015. This occurred because DFAS Indianapolis did not have detailed documentation describing the DDRS-B import process or have accurate or complete system reports.
It is mere insufficient “guidance” that caused this whopping gap.
The least I would expect are big words, like the responsible government officials will be held accountable, and will be tried for treason.
Or that the banks that laundered these trillions will be immediately shut down, and the assets of the recipients of these trillions will be confiscated, while these crooks will get a fine of at least 25% of what they stole, but none of that of course.
Here are the proposed measures to take from the summary:
OASA(FM&C) should periodically review system-generated adjustments to understand the reasons for the adjustments and to verify the support for the adjustments. OASA(FM&C) and DFAS Indianapolis should provide resources to review system change requests to correct system deficiencies that caused errors resulting in JV adjustments, determine when the requests will be implemented, and develop new cost effective corrective actions if they will not be implemented; identify root causes of errors that result in unsupported JV adjustments, including system-generated adjustments; and develop corrective actions with milestones to correct the identified root causes. DFAS Indianapolis should revise the manual used to support system-generated adjustments, fully document the complete DDRS-B import process, and update the Army Report Data Type Management Report and Feeder File Inventory Control Report to ensure the information they contain is accurate and complete. See the full report for additional recommendations.
I’ve tried to open the full 4 MB report, but in 15 minutes it still had not opened.

This reminds of the story that on 10 September 2001, the day before 9/11, Donald Rumsfeld announced that $2.3 trillion was “missing” from the Pentagon.
Maybe combining this information, this means that $4.2 trillion was additionally “missing” in those 15 years – that would make an average of missing money of $280 billion per year.

When I searched for this story with and the keywords “6.5 trillion report missing pentagon Breitbart” the first 3 pages (30 results) didn’t have a single story on this by Breitbart.

This morning (in another internet cafe) I could download the 4 MB 26 July 2016 report about the “missing” Pentagon trillions without problems.
EDIT - since then the full report has been deleted:

EDIT 26 December 2017 - fortunately somebody made a copy...
Here’s the full report: ... 16-113.pdf

And here’s a historic overview of “missing” money for the US Department of Defence: ... mentation/

On Page 9, 10 (of the 74 page PDF) we can see that since 1991 the DoD has made “unsupported adjustments … to the financial statements” and has repeatedly promised to do better, but failed time and time again (and won’t be corrected until this year...):
The Government Accountability Office identified unsupported adjustments made to the financial statements as a material internal control weakness during its audit of the FY 1991 Army financial statements.6 The Army indicated in its FY 2008 Statement of Assurance on Internal Controls7 that this material weakness would be corrected by the end of FY 2011 with the deployment of GFEBS. However, the FY 2015 Statement of Assurance on Internal Controls indicated this material weakness remained uncorrected, and may not be corrected until third quarter FY 2017.

I would like to know details about the “unsupported” 138,887 transactions (97.6% of the total of 142,355) for $4.44 trillion (64.6% of the total of $6.87 trillion). The only “explanation” is that review procedures aren’t adequate (or something like that…); Page 14:
We reviewed a nonstatistical sample of 263 adjustments, totaling $2.2 trillion, of the 3,615 third quarter JV adjustments and 194 adjustments, totaling $2.3 trillion, of the 3,468 yearend JV adjustments that DFAS Indianapolis personnel determined were supported to verify that the underlying detail transaction level documentation was available.19 Table 2 provides the results of our review of a sample of the JV adjustments DFAS Indianapolis personnel categorized as supported. We determined that 236, totaling $2 trillion, of the 263 third quarter JV adjustments in our sample and 170, totaling $2.1 trillion, of the 194 yearend JV adjustments in our sample, were in fact unsupported because the adjustments.

The whole computer system is obviously filled with blatantly false data, also see Page 15:
Therefore, we determined that all 32 third quarter JV adjustments, totaling $0.9 trillion, and all 39 yearend JV adjustments, totaling $1.1 trillion, were unsupported.

What we see on page 20 is that the explanation we get for the ten thousands of missing records (I count 39,358 instead of “at least 16,513”) is something like “we just don’t know...”. These missing records came from another system, so could be found, but this wasn’t even tried:
In addition, the feeder files contained 603,036 records,27 but the Army RDT Management Report indicated that only 563,678 records were received. For example, one feeder file from the Standard Operation and Maintenance Army Research and Development System contained 19,307 records. However, the Army RDT Management Report noted that DDRS-B received only 10,685 records, a difference of 8,622 records. We brought this to the attention of DFAS Indianapolis personnel on February 11, 2016; however, they did not provide an explanation for the difference.

On page 25 we can see what measures are taken, instead of finding out what happened to the trillions, they started a project which identified 46 “root causes” of which 13 were corrected at the time of writing the definitive report:
The DASA(FO), responding for the ASA(FM&C), and the Director, DFAS Indianapolis, agreed, stating that 13 root causes have been corrected by implementing system change requests and process changes. The DASA(FO) stated that the corrective actions for the remaining 33 root causes are currently in progress and are being addressed with remedy tickets, training enhancements, and process changes. The DASA(FO) also stated that corrective actions could include system change requests, procedural updates, training, or a combination of the three. The Director, DFAS Indianapolis, stated that remaining process-and training-related corrective actions with DFAS Indianapolis control will be implemented by December 2016. He also stated that DFAS Indianapolis would not independently perform the additional process-, training-, and systems-related corrective actions but would continue to play an active role.

On page 35 Appendix C starts, this again shows that the balance sheet of the DoD is something of a joke. Table after table show that most of the “adjustments” are “unsupported”.
See for example Table 4. FY 2015 AGF Balance Sheet (in millions)

The Director of DFAS Indianapolis, agreed with most of the conclusions of the Inspector General, but argued “that 22 JV adjustments, totaling $1.4 trillion, were counted in both the FY 2015 third quarter and FY 2015 yearend amounts”. So instead of $6.5 trillion it would be “only” $5.1 trillion.
According to the Inspector General: “we correctly reported the dollar value of unsupported JV adjustments impacting the FY 2015 AGF third quarter financial statements and the FY 2015 AGF yearend financial statements”.

My obvious conclusion is that large sums of money could have been stolen, and/or could have been used to support criminal activities.
I don’t really understand how the DoD with a total budget of less than $600 billion in 2015 could have $6.5 trillion “missing”. And this report is only for the army, so the other parts of the DoD could have a similar gap (Navy, Air Force and Marines)...

Re: The totalitarian state

I’m more of a reader than video watcher, but this one is quite good.
John Pilger’s documentary “War by other means” (1992) is about the wonderful efforts in the 1970s and 1980s by the World Bank and IMF to keep the world enslaved in debt.

Here’s a transcript of the video:
(archived here:

Contrary to the myth, it’s the poor of the world who finance the rich, not the other way around. And this video explains how.
It’s really the continuing colonial war, blatantly ignored by the media. It’s been called a silent war. Instead of soldiers dying, there’re children dying - according to the UN, more than half a million per year.

The IMF and World Bank were setup at the Bretton Woods conference in the US in 1944. The World Bank claimed it would finance the reconstruction of Europe and then develop the third world. In reality they are only promoting the interest of the elite. That was true in the 1970s and even more so in the 1980s.
In the 1980s, the World Bank, IMF, US government and British government would blackmail “developing” countries by refusing “loans”.
Every World Bank official is immune from prosecution anywhere in the world.

The debtor countries have paid more than $1.3 trillion from 1982-1992, and their debt burden has risen by 60% in that period. If we don’t put a stop to this, this could go on forever with the debtor countries paying 12 billion dollars every single month…
In the year 1990 alone, the poor countries transferred more than 6 billion pounds net to British banks. On top of this, the banks were allowed tax relief; from 1987 to 1990, 1.6 billion pounds. About 10 times what the British donated to the third world.
In the 1990s, Britain effectively became the poorest European country. In 1992, 1 in 5 British children lives in poverty.

The documentary puts the Philippines in the spotlight.
In order to eat and feed their family, Eddie and his wife, must work at least 12 hours a day for a little more than 2 pounds. Almost 30% of the children born on smoky mountain do not live to the age of 5.
About one Philippine child dies every hour because of the debt crisis. The Philippines spends almost half its national budget on paying the interest on debt to foreign banks.

The year the World Bank declared the Philippines a special case for development, it lend Dictator Marcos more than 4 billion dollars.
The Philippines used to have more than enough food, but for reasons known, agriculture was structurally adjusted. An example is the Calabarzon super-project, demanded by the IMF, which grows food specifically for the export. The new factories will produce profits for foreigners, and… more debt for the Philippines.
Many farmers will end up homeless on the streets of Manila.

Arguably the most interesting is the nuclear power plant sham. The Philippines had to borrow $2.6 billion from the Export-Import bank to pay the Westinghouse Electric Corporation for the power plant on the Bataan Peninsula, which will never create a single Watt of electricity.
In July 1973, President Ferdinand E. Marcos announced the decision to build a nuclear power plant. In 1974, it was Westinghouse that got the deal by bribing Marcos. According to Filipino lawyers, bankers and Government officials, Dictator Marcos received most of the $80 million in bribes. The payment, first went to Herminio Disini, who laundered the money through Switzerland, and transferred most of it to Marcos.
In 1975, Disini was rewarded for his work, when Marcos issued a secret presidential decree that effectively put Disini's competitor out of business.

The deal was underwritten by the US government through the Export-Import bank and some private banks. The Export-Import bank was founded to help US business overseas, by providing loans.
William Casey, the later director of the CIA, then Director of the Export-Import bank, went to Manila and recommended Congress to give an initial loan so that the other banks would join to provide more loans.
In June 1974, even before Westinghouse had submitted a detailed bid, Secretary of Industry Vincente Paterno described the Westinghouse deal in a memo to Marcos as “one reactor for the price of two”. It was later discovered that Westinghouse sold similar technology to other countries for only a fraction of the price.

Westinghouse got the deal with an estimate of $500 million, then the project was delayed over and over again, until the price was around $2.2 billion. All things considered the final cost for the Philippines is estimated at $2.6 billion. Of course, the Filipinos have to pay…
After Marcos was overthrown in 1986, President Corazon Aquino declared the Bataan Power Station unsafe and it was closed forever. Later a US judge found evidence of bribery, which was then settled out of court. Westinghouse agreed to pay the Philippines $100 million. As part of the deal (?), the Aquino government then gave Westinghouse another $400 million dollars for further “work”, which were again borrowed from the Export-Import bank and has to be repaid by the Filipinos...
Since Aquino was brought to power, the poverty level was raised by another 10%, to 70% of the Philippine population.

In 1986, several Philippine ministers suggested that the Philippines' $26-billion foreign debt must be lowered. At the time, the government owed $1.2 billion on the Bataan plant project. The biggest creditor is the US Export-Import Bank, which advanced $550 million for the project. Other loans came from a syndicate led by Citicorp and from Swiss and Japanese banks.
In May 2011, it was announced that the plant would be turned into a tourist attraction.

Interest costs for the power plant, in 1986, were $210 million a year; 8% of the Philippines' total foreign debt of $26 billion: ... ll&mcubz=1
