Claim: Donald Trump has Secretly Arrested 3,000 Elite Paedophiles and Satanists

From Right Wing Watch:

Last month, “firefighter prophet” Mark Taylor appeared on a YouTube program called “The Sharpening Report,” where he asserted that President Trump has secretly had thousands of “elite pedophiles” arrested and predicted that Hillary Clinton will soon be behind bars.

“Divine justice is being poured out right now,” Taylor said. “3,000 elite pedophiles have been arrested since the inauguration, but that’s not a whole lot of common knowledge, people don’t understand that because they’ve had a 100 percent media blackout on it.”

Taylor said that thousands of well-known, high-ranking figures have been arrested in recent months as part of Trump’s crackdown on satanic pedophile and child sacrifice cults, but we are not hearing anything about it because Trump is keeping it all under wraps.

Taylor has featured on this blog previously; he received a message from God in 2011 that Donald Trump would become president, and he recently co-authored a book titled The Trump Prophecies, in which it is explained that Trump is anointed and guided by God and should not be criticised. (1)

Taylor’s latest claim appears to derive from Craig Sawyer, a former Navy SEAL who heads a non-profit called ‘Veterans For Child Rescue. In April, Sawyer told Alex Jones’s InfoWars that

we are raising the money to shoot a documentary series to expose high level elite paedophile rings that are snatching up our children and doing unthinkable things to them… Some of them are into satanic rituals and actually torturing children to death….

I’m getting high level information about it from federal law enforcement and intelligence communities. There have been over 3,000 arrests already just since January. So, we’ve got a President now that is not ok with children being raped and tortured to death, so thank God.

With all of these arrests going on, I’ve been learning more and more about it and I realised i have to go independent to get around the gatekeepers in the mainstream media who apparently aren’t inclined to cover it. (2)

Leaving aside the issue that “arrested” does not mean “proved guilty”, it is not explained why exactly the media would want to cover up such a sensational story. Sawyer believes the Trump actually fired James Comey for covering up “Pizzagate“.

Veterans for Child Rescue has a four-member Board of Advisers: the anti-Kinsey obsessive Judith Reisman; Bob Hamer, a former FBI agent who has co-authored books with Oliver North; Jack L. Farmer, a security consultant; and Charles W. Moore, Jr., a retired Vice-Admiral and oil executive.

There is an insatiable appetite for stories claiming that political figures and other members of “the establishment” are actually child rapists and child murderers; this blog has recently covered examples from AustraliaBelgium, Britain, and the USA. Such tales appeal to millennial longings both on the left and the right: the world will be turned upside-down, and those who now have worldly status and influence will soon be exposed and forever reviled as the very worst dregs of humanity. Such allegations are also useful more cynically, as simple political smears.


1. Taylor’s book is published by Thomas Horn’s Defender Publishing; Horn is a former Assemblies of God pastor, but his faith today revolves around science-fiction themed conspiracy theories that recall Alex Jones and David Icke rather than orthodox Christian theology. Horn and Taylor both receive wider exposure through outlets such as WND and Charisma, as well as The Jim Bakker Show. Taylor’s “3,000 elite pedophiles” comment was made on The Sharpening Report, an online video programme made by one Josh Peck, whose works include a book co-authored with Horn called Abaddon Ascending: The Ancient Conspiracy at the Center of CERN’s Most Secretive Mission. Peck also contributed to an “End Times” anthology edited by Horn called I Predict, as I blogged here.
