The Clinton-Silsby Trafficking Scandal And How The Media Attempted To Ignore/Cover It Up

William Craddick's picture
Abstract:

Contrary to reports in the media, the crowd sourced investigation labeled by some as "Pizzagate" did not begin with internet sleuths digging through the Wikileaks Podesta Files releases looking for pizza parlors and encoded language discussing human trafficking. It began with the shocking discovery that Hillary and Bill Clinton provided assistance to convicted child trafficker, Laura Silsby, resulting in a reduced sentence for child trafficking.

Silsby was arrested at the Haitian border attempting to smuggle 33 children out of Haiti without documentation. Her sentence and charges were reduced after an intervention by Bill Clinton. In the aftermath of Silsby's arrest, her originally retained lawyer Jorge Puello was arrested in connection with an international smuggling ring accused of trafficking women and minors from Central America and Haiti. The revelation of this news in November was either ignored by the Western media or attacked by Clinton controlled publications.

I. Hillary Clinton Intervened Politically on Behalf of Laura Silsby

Laura Silsby is the former director of The New Life Children’s Refuge. Emails from her organization can be found in Wikileaks’ Hillary Clinton Email Archive discussing the NGO before her arrest. Silsby’s organization also appears in Clinton’s emails, soliciting donations for their “ministry.” The Refuge was founded by Silsby and Charisa Coulter, both attendees of the Central Valley Baptist Church in Meridian, Idaho. Silsby was reported to have a history of bad debts and unpaid wages.

Laura had claimed she planned to build an orphanage in the Dominican Republic, but a State Department diplomatic cable revealed that authorities in the country said she never submitted an application for this purpose. They instead located to Haiti.

On January 29, 2010, Silsby was arrested with nine other American nationals attempting to steal 33 children from the country, most of whom were not even orphans and had families according to some reportsCNN reported on February 9, 2010 that this was not the first time Silsby had attempted to traffic children out of Haiti. Haitian police acting on a tip had intercepted Silsby in an earlier, separate attempt to remove 40 children out of the country. She was turned back at the Haitian border. For a brief period, Haitian authorities were considering adding a new kidnapping charge based on this evidence.

Hillary and Bill Clinton took an extraordinary interest in Silsby’s case from the moment she was arrested and almost immediately stepped in on her behalf. The Harvard Human Rights Journal stated that one of Bill Clinton's first acts as special envoy for the United Nations in Haiti "was to put out the fire of a child abduction scandal involving American citizens." On February 7th, 2010, The Sunday Times reported that Bill Clinton had intervened to strike a deal with the Haitian government, securing the release of all co-conspirators except for Silsby. Prosecutors ultimately sought a six-month sentence in Silsby's case, reducing charges for conspiracy and child abduction to mere "arranging irregular travel." A shockingly light penalty given the circumstances of her arrest, which would likely not have been possible but for the intervention of the Clintons in Silsby's case.

On February 9th, 2010 Hillary Clinton consulted with Counselor Cheryl Mills and other attorneys in an email discussing the U.S. Government's "options" regarding the arrested Americans. The heavily redacted memo attached to that email does not reveal what these "options" consisted of. However, the State Department's American Citizens Services is only authorized to offer lists of local, English speaking attorneys to Americans arrested or detained abroad. To go beyond that authorization is a severe violation of protocol and is illegal. Additional emails reveal that the State Department was concerning with making statements on the Silsby scandal and preparing to assist Silsby's co-conspirators with their return to the United States, although this is consistent with State Department protocol in these situations.

II. Silsby's Lawyer and His Wife Were Both Arrested For Involvement in Human Sex Trafficking of Minors and Women

On February 11th, the New York Times reported that Silsby's original lawyer, Jorge Puello, was suspected of leading an international human trafficking ring involving women and minors. According the the Harvard Human Rights Journal Puello was ultimately arrested in an investigation being lead by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in connection with the ring. He was wanted in the United States, El Salvador and Costa Rica for his involvement with a network trafficking Central Americans and Haitians. 

At the time of his arrest, his wife was already imprisoned in El Salvador and “faced charges of presumed sexual exploitation of minors and women.” Puello was ultimately sentenced to three years in federal prison for "alien smuggling." Another surprisingly light sentence given the original charges he was sought for. It it not known at this time whether or not Laura Silsby was associated with Puello's criminal enterprise.

III. The Daily Beast Engaged in an Illicit Cover Up Operation of the Above Information

On November 3rd, 2016, this author made a post to Reddit containing preliminary research and information on the above story. The post was made to the pro-Trump subreddit r/the_donald due to the forum's reputation as the only outlet on Reddit where news was not being censored during the U.S. Presidential Election. The same day, Wikileaks tweeted a link to the Reddit post labeling it as a "significant, if partisan, find."

On November 4th, 2016 The Daily Beast wrote a non-factual and intentionally misleading article covering the Clinton-Silsby scandal. They accused Wikileaks of publicizing a "Reddit conspiracy theory" which was "riddled with incorrect information." The author, Ben Collins neglected to do basic research on the totality of the links presented in the post as evidence. Mr. Collins attacked the policies of r/the_donald towards freedom of speech and accused the forum of being racist without citing extensive or definitive proof. At no point did The Daily Beast provide proof that the allegations were not true, and did not disprove any of the evidence submitted. A link to an extensive study of the case by the Harvard Human Rights Journal which clearly linked Bill Clinton to the scandal was totally ignored. They similarly failed to acknowledge or address emails published by Wikileaks between Hillary Clinton and her legal counsel which may potentially indicate that she violated State Department policy for the treatment of U.S. citizens arrested or detained abroad.

The Daily Beast is a holding of American media conglomerate InterActiveCorp. Chelsea Clinton, Vice President of the Clinton Foundation and daughter of Hillary and Bill Clinton, sits on InterActiveCorp's Board of Directors. The proximity of the Clinton family to the organization responsible for oversight and direction of The Daily Beast raises questions about the publication's journalistic independence and their commitment to factual and ethical reporting on current events and topics of public interest. Given their slanderous and incorrect reporting on the Clinton-Silsby scandal, it seems clear that they do not hold these values in high regard.

Since her release from detention in Haiti, Laura Silsby has returned to Idaho. In 2015, she married and took the last name Gayler. Silsby is currently employed by software company AlertSense as their Vice President of Marketing. AlertSense works with the Federal Government on FEMA's Integrated Public Alert & Warning System (IPAWS). One of IPAWS functions is to issue Amber Alerts during kidnapping events.

Could this be the definition of "Irony"?

Sort of, or just the PTB comedy routine, as almost all NGOs utilize some naming scheme to hide their demonic intent in some way, even if they utilize the classic symbols to show their true colors.

Assange has been missing since mid-October when Ecuador's Embassy was raided by an unidentified SWAT team.

The best theory I've come across is that Assange has been renditioned to Smithfield, N. Carolina. & Wikileaks is now being run by the 'Men in Black' as dis-information. But make up your own mind. I've put lots of links & vids up here:

Keep the truth coming Zero Hedge.

You are doing the World a great service in exposing the vile, corrupt perverts who are in very high positions of power.

The good decent people of the World now have only one hope left.....Donald Trump! let's all pray he instigates a full enquiry into this filth.

The Wikileaks from Silsby definately suggest a pedi ring. She mentions only babies till 12 years old ( cut off for puberty) in her emails. Had they really just been victims of orphans the age range would have varied from babies to 18 years. But she specifically targets babies to 12 year olds.

The age of consent in Mexico is 12. The age of consent in Vatican City, The Eternal Home of Globalism, was just raised to 14.

Adios regionalization. No mas harmonizing Clinton rapists.

Consent is not what you think, by 15 most people have already had sex.Its the perverted rapist(old guy)that's the problem.

False information! Mexico laws of age of sexual consent is 18. Imprisonment of 3-8 years applies to anyone who facilitates or procures the corruption of a minor under 18 years of age.

Adios to prison you mean-

Citiing pro-pedo websites as defense:

"But, your honor, I read it on Wikipedia..."

 

And Interpol is noone else but the very same police forces who'll go after you if you give those sites credence. If you think they use wiki or other shady sites as legal reference, might as well start "easing" yourself up; you'll need it.

Inmates around the world don't treat abusers kindly, to put it mildly; let's just say they're given a taste of their own poison.

Great article. Yes, there is an international child trafficking ring being lead by the Clintons and other political elites.

As I understand it, the Clinton's corruption is way past what we thought. Those donations are actually extortion payments: 

Fly to Epsteins Island, do  %$%^^, and be in debt to the Clintons for the rest of your life.

Note - the Clinton-Silsby connection is documented in Wikileaks as far back as Jan 1, 2001 when Bill was still president!

So now this woman from Idaho gets to be an advertising VP for a company that created FEMA's amber alert system, and this made my jaw drop because the acronym is IPAWS.

You can't make this shit up.

What if Trump opened that Pandora box of paedo rings/sexual blackmail with children?

Here's a video of Silsby and her Baptist church "helpers" when she was caught in Haiti.   Silsby and her male helpers  (see @ :42) all look like perverts.

This is all part of the diabolical human trafficking business.  Eventually it will be shown how the Clnton Foundation is one of the major supports for this activity.

Honestly, I wonder if Trump is even aware of this? I never heard all of it until now.
Someone needs to let him know about it, and I bet he will open an investigation into it.

Seeing that clip after all that is known at this point is horrific. The other thing is there is a point when Donald goes off script and the crowd starts wailing.

The C.I.A. has always been notorious for being deeply involved in the top 3 illicit revenue-producing operations of the world. Drug trafficking and arms trafficking are both quite HUGE; however, it is child trafficking that really keeps them in business. The CIA has so many black budgeted operations to fund that they require massive funding from these criminal activities to continue to run them across the planet. Child trafficking also provides a special means to control those in positions of perceived power. However, it is those who occupy the highest echelons of the global power structure who are also taken care of by way of this global pedophilia ring.

This is what really distinguished Pizzagate from all of the other child sexual abuse scandals in high places over the past many decades. It has broken open a prominently configured C.I.A. cell of deeply embed operatives within the international child exploitation business. This particular Pedogate operation is really controlled by the C.I.A., as well as other alphabet soup agencies that no one has even heard of they’re so secret and nefarious in their criminal activity.

What could possibly be more radioactive than pedophilia in high places?
Actually, the pedophilia rings are organized ostensibly as a cover for a much, MUCH more sinister business operation. Those criminal activities routinely carried out include the production of child pornography, both photographs and films, as well as the filming of snuff movies. Other criminal behavior falls within the realm of satanic ritual child sacrifice and blood drinking. The most odious crimes, however, involve child organ trafficking, tissues harvesting and blood extraction.

It’s crucial to comprehend that the C.I.A. does not, and never has, worked for the American people. The Company, as it is also known, works exclusively for the Military Industrial Complex and other key Fortune 1000 companies scattered around the globe. The C.I.A. is also employed by select NGOs, which have actually been set up as CIA front companies like the Clinton Foundation. The Clinton Global Initiative is just that—a global CIA operation that interpenetrates every kind of corporation that is necessary to perform a blackop wherever it is necessary to have such a benevolent cover.

The Clinton Foundation: A Typical ‘CIA-Directed NGO’ That Is Completely Above The Law

For these and other reasons, both Hillary and Bill Clinton have been implicated in various schemes which have to do with child trafficking. The Pizzagate scandal at Comet Ping Pong is just one that was overseen by Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta–a key figure in the D.C. pedophilia ring along with his brother super-lobbyist Tony Podesta.
The very endeavor that put the Clinton Foundation on the map was its response to the catastrophic earthquake in Haiti. However, a woman who was caught and convicted of child smuggling (33 children) — Laura Silsby — and who Secretary of State Clinton tried to protect from prosecution, also has ties to the Foundation. Which is why the mainstream media (MSM) was eerily silent on this whole criminal matter.

John B. Wells made a comment recently about the CIA. It is illegal for the CIA to operate inside the US. It is illegal for the CIA to operate outside of the US (as most countries don't roll out a welcome mat). Basically the CIA's sole purpose is to engage in illegal acts, full time, at US Taxpayer expense.
