Fast forward to today and a couple of more lies from those nuts:
  • Anyone who can read can find out what is in vaccines
    Others can just ask their doctor .
  • The trustworthiness of those running the programs is not in doubt except in the small minds of conspiracy theorists.

Yeah, this.

Bubba and his Link Buddies are putting forward these cases as evidence for such rings, which they most certainly are not, and then falling back on speculation to paper over the gaping holes in their claims.

That's not how real investigations work, and as Axxman300 has pointed out more than once now, by promoting these BS claims, Bubba et al. (inadvertently? Hmmm...) provide cover for real pedos to dismiss the charges of real victims as "just another crazy accusation".

Bubba: You're Not Helping.

In the British justice system there is an assumption that someone is innocent until proven guilty. This is to prevent the persecution of the innocent by either an oppressive state or malign individuals.
Contrast this with your statement, in which the assumption is that, by virtue of their social class or career choice, those people are probably paedophiles, and that, if it isn't proven, they still are, they just haven't been caught yet.
How fortunate we are that justice does not function in the way that CT believers act. This is also why we skeptics insist on facts, to avoid paranoid, bigoted and hysterical witch-hunts, mob justice and hangings from lamp posts.
It is ironic, is it not, that those who claim to be in favour of greater transparency, better justice and an end to tyranny and oppression would actually create a far worse society if they ever grew beyond an insignificant fringe and actually took power.

Get help.
You are ill informed. You need to do some research about the matter and not just get your information from Fox News. Personally I think all this is connected to the murder of JonBenet Ramsey and the abduction of Madeleine McCann in Portugal The problems victims of pedophilia have is that they can end up dead, as well as being accused of being mentally ill, and not being listened to. There is a long list of suspicious deaths connected to the Clinton family which also appear to be associated with drug smuggling. It's a bit like Mexico with police inaction. Investigative journalists and others have ended up dead or had suspicious suicides.

There are strong suspicions that American Presidents have been pedophiles as well as Edward Heath in the UK, though to his credit I don't suspect Trump of that, for all his faults and racial problems.

There is some background to this at this website:

www.youtube.com/watch?v=7f4Q8USjU08

One website about the Franklin scandal does not link to this forum and another wants an update of a flash player which I'm a bit suspicious about.

On the contrary Henri, Axxman is well informed as he has looked at the evidence from both sides and come to his conclusion. On the other hand it is obvious from your posting history that you start from your conclusion and cherry pick pieces of "evidence" to support the belief that you already have. Are there paedophiles within the governing classes round the world? Given statistics, very probably. Do they run the world? Not a snowballs chance in hell, and if you are honest to yourself you will know that. Yewtree in the UK has at least shown that for the worst perpetrators of any crime, time and distance is no protection.

One of the Doctor Who Missing Adventures novels from Virgin had the First or Second Doctor on ancient Venus, meeting the Venusians who were the source of the Third Doctor's martial arts. They were working on their first rocket to try to reach orbit, but their engineers couldn't figure out why the rockets always exploded on the launch pad. What wasn't mentioned, until a Companion saw the rocket, was that they had a very metal-poor environment and were trying to launch a rocket that was made of wood.

Don't bother; it's painfully obvious form Henri's post that he hasn't actually read any of the other posts by Axxman300 in this thread. Henri's probably just skimming threads looking for keywords so he can post his usual drivel, and attempt to look smart.

In your next thread, you should explore how the Romans ever got to Canada.

This is delusional. Have you ever seen a map or a globe?

The Ramsey case boils down to a handful of suspects: The mother, a security guard at the father's office, and maybe the brother.

The McCann case happened at a resort in a country where the cops are sub par.

In both cases nobody knows what happened beyond a murder and a kidnapping. Everything else is speculation.

In that order?

If you knew how unpopular the Clintons were with a few branches of Federal and State law enforcement agencies then you'd know there's a small army of men and women wearing badges hoping to nail them to the wall.

Our last FBI director was one of them.

So if this was true they'd be in prison now.

And here you demonstrate a political bias that creates a YUGE blind spot.

Trump bragged about walking into the Miss Teen USA pageant dressing room specifically to see the UNDER AGED GIRLS NUDE.

Then there is the allegation that he raped a 13 year old:

She then received death threats and dropped the plans for a lawsuit:

It's starting to look like Bubba might actually take anti-vax nonsense seriously. This is indeed unfortunate, as, unlike most conspiracy theories, anti-vax crap may lead you to do something extremely stupid and dangerous, like refusing to have your children vaccinated. As far as I'm concerned people spreading this nonsense are morally, if not legally, guilty of murder.

I guess that depends on how interested you are in history or archaeology or whatever. It could, potentially, be an interesting thing if man-made. Not that I'm convinced it is.
It would be interesting in historical/archological sense if man-made, but probably not evidence of unknown advanced civilizations, aliens or any such nonsense. If those rectangularish boulders were oriented vertically, I'd be a bit more inclined to think they were part of an old wall (though they could still be natural). As they are, they don't look to me like anything but a bit of exposed bedrock with an interesting (but not too unusual) fracture pattern.

Thank you, the anti-vac movement makes me feel rage. Where I live has been called "the most liberal town in California", and anti-vaccers are abundant. I have had many discussions and a few arguments on the subject.

My little 10 year old GD, was born with a cyst on her brain, she has seizures, has to wear a helmet to protect her head, and her immune system is not functioning well, so she comes down with every thing.

Batteries going dead is never mysterious. It's when they keep working at critical times that's bizzarre.

He has referred to his daughter Ivanka as a "great piece of A**".
