A friend of Hampstead Research rote to ask me why I was so sure that the “Hampstead cult” exists: I thought I’d share it here. (If you are a survivor, this may be triggering.)
(A cult = a relatively small group of people having religious beliefs or practices regarded by others as strange or sinister.)
Why am I so sure there is a “Hampstead cult”?
First, the children’s testimony. There is no doubt in my mind that they are telling the truth. Both of them, separately and together, repeatedly corroborate each other’s evidence when they tell us that they are members of a ritually abusive cult based in Hampstead. How could children of that age, who do not even watch television, know what a cult was and how to describe its (typical) workings in such detail unless they were in one?
These are not children who have been coached, either. Their speech is spontaneous. They are relieved to be unburdening themselves of the unnatural acts in which they have been forced to participate. Tragically, they now believe that there is a glimmer of hope. To see them coached, watch their retraction statements; the little boy just cannot get it right about the babies he did not kill.
The children credibly, consistently and intelligently describe the workings of a hierarchical cult of which they are forced to be members. They state that their father is its head and refer to a “religion”. There is inter-generational incest: just as their grandmother and father abuse them, they report, they will go on to abuse their own children. The practices they describe – killing and eating babies and drinking their blood – sound almost impossibly bizarre and incredible but unfortunately they are all-too-real. Canadian ritual abuse therapist Alison Miller tells us that blood drinking and cannibalism, on the basis of beliefs that there is “power in the blood” is not uncommon within these inter-generationally incestuous cults. Her book gives a few survivor testimonies that substantiate the Hampstead testimony:
There’s something on the ground he has to hurt, between him and the man who stands in front of him. There’s a man behind him, too. Large hands wrap around his to help hold the knife. The insides of his hands sting from the pressing……
The priest picked up the sacred athame and placed it into the hands of the little friend. Holding her hand in his he raised her hand and with one swift thrust pierced Miranda’s heart……
We can’t tell our friends or the people who don’t go to our church….. We can’t tell them about our special ceremonies like the sex stuff and giving baby and children’s hearts to the priest and drinking blood from the special Christ cup….
Sacrificing animals, babies and other humans is good, it gives power (“power in the blood”). People who become beasts and tear the bodies apart feed on the blood and eating flesh is good (Luciferian belief).
The very sane and convincing Dejoly Labrier, survivor of a Satanic group in the US military explains (2 mins 55),
Parts of their bodies were put in the grinder to feed the feast, to feed the people that were in the cult and give them power. There was blood drinking, there was cannibalism of the babies that were used …..there’s a belief that if there’s blood and there’s cannibalism, if there’s eating of human flesh and that’s done in a ritual then there’s building of power – they become very powerful.
So I do not find this at all difficult to believe. In some countries human foetuses are consumed – we recently saw them on sale from Planned Parenthood. In 2014 the UN reprimanded the UK for the numbers of children being trafficked, in particular to London for abuse in rituals. But by whom? Ritually abusive cults, surely!
These cults are not uncommon, indeed they have grown to the extent that they are causing us a problem: in 2014 the Dundee-based charity Izzy’s Promise reported receiving up to five phone calls a day from ritual abuse survivors seeking help. Melanie Shaw, currently exposing the blood drinking and ritual abuse that went on in Nottingham’s institutions, tells us that this problem is “everywhere”. July 2015 saw convictions for ritual abuse and blood drinking in Norfolk and allegations are surfacing of Satanism at Haut de la Garenne. So the facts, too, support the children’s testimony.
In 2012 Dr Linda Stalley wrote in a report on the Satanist abuse of children in the UK: The scale of victimisation and abuse by gangs and groups is unknown…..The National Missing Persons Bureau has reported that approximately 200,000 people go missing each year. It is well known that within groups engaged in ritual abuse activity, births of babies are often not registered, therefore an estimation of the numbers involved is extremely difficult to obtain.
Some idea of the scale of the problem could be gained by an assessment of the numbers of adults who seek help at a later date, but many of these individuals are not recognised due to the lack of awareness by conventional services.
Dr Stalley is not the only expert who informs us that lack of awareness of these cults is a serious problem. A recent survey of ritual abuse survivors found that “awareness was poor” (Matthew and Barron 2015). One reason these cults and their practices are not more ingrained in our consciousness is that their proliferation is a relatively new, post-WWII phenomenon. After the war, it seems, Nazis, occultists and governments combined to research these practices and they spread out. For example, it has been suggested that they increased in Australia with the arrival of European immigrants during and after the War.
Alison Miller tells us that these cults/groups almost always work alongside government groups and organised crime syndicates. The children describe this scenario perfectly. We hear about drugs, baby trafficking, the making of child sex abuse and snuff movies in empty buildings provided by an estate agent; their translation and international distribution. When the children describe these activities it is not likely that they understand that they are describing highly lucrative organised crime syndicates. And Dr Stalley could be describing Hampstead when she writes: Satanist ritual perpetrator groups are composed of individuals who often have professional jobs in the police, legal and social services and local authority. Satanist groups also frequently include members who are freemasons. There is deliberate intent to have members in different spheres of influence in order to maximise the security of the group and to gain social respectability for individual participating members.
Alleged members of the cult include police officers and Cafcass employees, a local (Green Party) politician, teachers, doctors and a firm of solicitors. It is possible that one of the investigating officers is a Freemason.
On to the behaviour of these people: not one person who is supposed to have distinguishing marks has come forward. Not one. Even though the cult was so upset about the allegations it appealed to the Ham and High newspaper! Even though the cult was so upset they shouted in the street at two people and had the police pay a visit to warn one of them off! Even though the cult was so upset by Hampstead Research they called in Web Sherriff (never a real lawyer, mind). Even though the cult felt so harassed they had activists arrested and issued death threats. Their vicar could have ended the matter once and for all by taking off his shirt; instead he chooses to take offence and waste public money taking someone to court.
Then there has been the cult’s reaction to HR. Not one person answered my letters inviting them to clear their name. Instead, my email address was illegally hacked and passed on to another cult member. Not one person has protested their innocence, not one defence has been mounted – nor, importantly, one defence of others “wrongly accused”. Instead, we see Hoaxstead as a testament to the fact that we are dealing with Satanists, using the same tactics that were used when cults were being exposed back in 1998 (Caloff, 1998)!
So my verdict is guilty. So guilty, in fact, that I don’t know why I’m even writing this piece. There is no doubt in my mind that there is a Hampstead cult.
