Conspiracy of Silence

(Banned Discovery Channel Documentary)

“Conspiracy of Silence” is a powerful, disturbing documentary
revealing a nationwide child abuse and pedophilia ring that leads to
the highest levels of government. Featuring intrepid investigator John
DeCamp, a highly decorated Vietnam war veteran and 16-year Nebraska
state senator, “Conspiracy of Silence” reveals how rogue elements at
all levels of government have been involved in systematic child abuse
and pedophilia to feed the base desires of key politicians.

Based on DeCamp’s riveting book, The Franklin Cover-up, “Conspiracy of
Silence” begins with the shut-down of Nebraska’s Franklin Community
Federal Credit Union after a raid by federal agencies in November 1988
revealed that $40 million was missing. When the Nebraska legislature
launched a probe into the affair, what initially looked like a
financial swindle soon exploded into a startling tale of drugs, money
laundering, and a nationwide child abuse ring. Nineteen months later,
the legislative committee’s chief investigator died suddenly and
violently, like more than a dozen other people linked to the Franklin

So why have you never heard of the Franklin cover-up? Originally
scheduled to air in May of 1994 on the Discovery Channel, “Conspiracy
of Silence” was yanked at the last minute due to formidable pressure
applied by top politicians. Some very powerful people did not want you
to watch this documentary.

You may find yourself becoming angry or upset while watching
“Conspiracy of Silence.” Many people do. However, consider that each
of us has at times in our life acted out of selfish motives when it
comes to sexuality and ended up hurting others in one way or another.
Let us take this information not only as a call to stop this kind of
abuse at the nationwide level, but also as a call to examine our own
sexual relationships and make a commitment to deep honesty and
integrity in our own lives around this most sensitive issue. Thanks
for caring and may we all work together to build a brighter future for
ourselves and for our world.

A copy of this videotape was furnished anonymously to former Nebraska
state senator and attorney John De Camp who made it available to
retired FBI Agent Ted L. Gunderson. While the video quality is not top
grade, this tape is a blockbuster in what is revealed by the
participants involved.

NOTE; This film had to be reassembled from remaining VHS fragments
after an all-out effort was made to block the films release and
destroy all extant copies. Every effort has been made to restore it to
the original and complete “meant to be broadcast” version.

  1. ARCHIVE.ORG has a much better copy for viewing. Sorry, this copy is difficult to view.

  2. From Wikipedia article titled ‘Franklin child prostitution ring allegations’ ::
    “The Franklin child prostitution ring allegations began in June 1988 in Omaha, Nebraska and attracted significant public and political interest until late 1990, when separate state and federal grand juries concluded that the allegations were unfounded and the ring was a “carefully crafted hoax.” ::

  3. Great documentary, wish there was better sound / video quality

  4. Hi there! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share. Many thanks!

  5. I wonder why only 240p…but we all know the answer to this…well maybe almost all of us.

  6. Did anyone happen to see what is on the right hand side of the screen at 21:45? Super creepy.

  7. Trashy topic shown via an even trashier hack job of a video that only made me bail out after 5 mins. of viewing. Thanks to the contributors in the comment thread, far better links were provided that weren’t as bad a root canal.

  8. I allow myself to post a link which is far better quality than the above. I did actually try to see it till the end, but the noise made it impossible to focus. Have a good evening everyone 🙂

  9. The quality of this video is so bad and distorted, you can barely make out what they are saying, or their faces. It’s really bad. One of the worst I’ve ever seen. I stopped it several times, thinking I couldn’t be bothered, because you could barely make out the faces and what they were saying. ..very bad quality.

  10. The Franklin child prostitution ring allegations took place between 1988 and 1991 and involved an alleged child sex ring serving prominent citizens of Nebraska, as well as high-level U.S. politicians. The allegations also claimed that the alleged sex ring was led by, “a cult of devil worshipers involved in the mutilation, sacrifice and cannibalism of numerous children.” The allegations centered on the actions of Lawrence E. King Jr., who ran the now defunct Franklin Community Federal Credit Union (FCFCU) in Omaha, Nebraska.

    The Nebraska State Foster Care Review Board submitted the results of a two-year investigation into the alleged physical and sexual abuse of foster children to the Executive Board of the Nebraska Legislature, who were investigating reports of child sexual abuse linked to the credit union. Authorities launched a probe, interviewing a number of claimed abuse victims who said that children in foster care were flown to the U.S. East Coast and were abused at “bad parties.” After investigation, agrand jury in Douglas County (of which Omaha, Nebraska is the largest city and county seat) determined the abuse allegations were baseless, describing them as a “carefully crafted hoax” and indicted two of the accusers on perjury charges. The grand jury also suggested that the abuse stories originated from a vindictive employee terminated by Boys Town, the famed refuge for troubled youths. Later, a federal grand jury concluded that the abuse allegations were unfounded and indicted 21-year-old Alisha Owen, an alleged victim, on eight counts of perjury. The same grand jury also indicted multiple officers of the credit union, including King, for crimes related to the embezzlement of funds from the credit union. Alisha Owen served 4-1/2 years in prison.

    Historian Philip Jenkins explored how hot topics such as the Franklin allegations, whether or not they are worthy of attention or credible on their own merits, are seized by political opportunists for their own purposes. He also described how cases such as the Franklin allegations can acquire credibility, even if they lack any credibility inherently, when reported in various media in a credulous voice. Numerous conspiracy theories evolved and persist, claiming that the alleged abuse was part of a widespread series of crimes including devil worship, cannibalism, drug trafficking, CIA arms dealing and links with the first Bush Administration.

    • The Epstein case nullifies your rebuttal completely. 25 years for purjury> Case after case after case shelved by the FBI.

  11. Men are a disease.

    • “Men are disease?“
      Y? Because of the stereotype of a pedophile? A study of a percentage women and men who admitted to forcing sex found that 43.6 per cent of that subset were women, compared to 56.4 per cent of men. If you would take the time and really research this disgusting issue, you will find that women can be just as or worse than men when it comes to sexual abuse.

      Ignorance is the real disease.

    • Humans are the disease. We need to cure ourselves and the toxic perpetual nature of society.

      • What does that even must have ionvented an ugly, ugly world for yourself to thnink like that..all the humans in my world are good and decent people and I am grateful to be alive in this world to come to know so many!

  14. sick bastards should b hung by their balls.

  15. Im so sick of it people r so evil.Its sad there a few good ones or they should all b sterilized at birth

  16. Google Hollie Greig !!!

  17. for god’s sake, if it’s not available please take it down.

  18. THIS version has been taken off but there are others on youtube still.

    IF you cant get it contact me and we’ll have to arrange a copy somehow from someone for you, as these ppl MUST NOT be allowed to work in the shadows abusing our children.

    Check this site out and you’ll see how awful these people are and the height of their powers etc…..

  19. I read the comments and wanted to watch the documentary to discover that its been taken off, what a pity

  20. This is a must see documentary. The young people who were abused and had the courage to come forward with what is clearly a true account of a horrible rotten organized crime need to have someone with power and conscience to help them find justice. Imagine the countless others who suffered at the hands of these bastards.
    It is sickening and disgraceful to see a political system that is so addicted to money and power that it would turn its back on societies most vulnerable persons to protect its greediest. Not surprised by the FBI’s stance … After all the organization was founded by a sexually depraved cross-dressing weirdo … One who made a living out of lies and protecting organized crime leaders.
    Sometimes I just feel like puking when I think of police, priests, politicians, and other assorted perverts.

  21. How evil are these guys, maybe we ought to let them get married to hippos and let them have at the them like they go after little boys. Hippo’s would know what to do.

  23. After watching this and reading the comments on this blog, I think people are missing the point, whoever caused the abuse, the big story is the FBI is allegedly covering it up and murdering people.

  24. I read The Franklin Coverup and that book was about the government child sex ring.  I have yet to see anyone be prosecuted for these crimes.  I believe that many people in government are pedophiles and are being blackmailed to do terrible things because there is proof of it that people are holding over their heads.

  25. The picture that accompanies this video is the wrong one for this documentary. It is one of the cover images for another movie based on a true story about the murder of an aboriginal woman in The Pas, Manitoba, Canada.

  28. This all turned out to be bogus:

  29. “16-year Nebraska state senator”

    What? They have children in the legislature?

  30. “16-year Nebraska state senator”

    What? They have children in the legislature?

    • They mean he was a state senator representing Nebraska for 16 years. If it was “16 year old Nebraska state senator,” then he would be a child, yes.

  31. 9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
    10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
    1 Timothy 6:9-10.

    • What are you on about?

      • Reading of the comments, it seems the dialogue in some cases
        has become confrontational, the subject in abstraction, perhaps lost.

        Save only the verdict, I would ask, “Might there be only one
        evil in the world — and so many branches thereof, that is, the symptoms manifest
        in minds so corrupted?”

        According to someone named Paul, in a letter to someone
        named Timothy, in a Book called the Bible, there is simply but one evil to
        consider, namely, the love of money (1 Timothy 6:10).

        Thus, the symptom (lust) is readily distinguished from the
        cause (or, the root of all the evils), the love of money.

        And we are able to stand in judgment of the case, according
        to law.

        • I ask again: What are you on about?

          • 17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not high minded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;
            18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate;
            19 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
            (1 Timothy 6:17-19).

          • JBusby: Could you explain what are you on about?

          • He is about the truth.

          • JBusby – you appear to have forgotten to take your medication today.

    • What are you on about?

  33. Everyone needs to get their facts straight realize it is not the CHURCH that is flawed, it is the PEOPLE. You don’t hear anyone saying because there were 25 counts of child abuse in a town by white men who went to college that all men who go to college from that town are pedophiles/child abusers. It has become a media trend to point out these issues associated with the catholic church. The church was one of the first big establishments to catch/report someone of authority committing these crimes. It is much easier to point out people involved with church communities as having high rates of pedophilia then other intstitutions because it is one of the few that is non for profit and they hold no real power (aka seperation of church and state, and why we did not hear about these problems in the catholic church when this law did not exist…becaust they did have REAL MONEY AND POWER.) I do not consider myself religious, but I believe it is unfair to condemn an institution when it is really just an idea, the PEOPLE are the problem.

    • Thank you for your respectful post. People are the problem in and out of church. You are free to do as you wish good or evil. All those  who point accusing fingers at each other, i have one question what are you doing to change the world for good?

  34. The FBI, The Vatican Church, they’re all the same; filled with corrupt sick old men who abuse the power they have to undermine and destroy any allegations made towards their sick games. Let’s hope incidents like these never happen again in the supposedly ‘civilised and developed’ world in future.

  35. Hunter S. Thompson was also implicated in the Franklin Cover up. He was alleged to have assisted in the filming of kiddie vids.

  36. Great Doc.Crazy how no one in the positions of power do anything and have no comment to make. Just makes them look more guilty

  37. Once again, the catholic church emerges in pedophile implications, I can assure that they are behind it, and I wouldn’t be shocked to hear that the “legionarios de Cristo”, the Mexican-born catholic institution responsible for thousands of child rapes, it is behind it. I wish I had the ability and connections to unmask them, no other institution on the face of the earth has done more damage to human kind than the Roman Catholic church.


      • my god defending the catholic church those sick bastards there a hell within hell for people as evil as they r hypocrisy kills me and boy they r tough to beat.They r involved in pedophilia and aiding the Nazi and that only the beginning.

      • It doesn’t matter which church it is. All of them abuse the power they have over mindless believers. Get your facts straight mr. brainwashed. All religion and churches have been some of the main causes for war and continuously justify their killings for god in the image of man. Go research a little more history and bring some facts to the table before you start calling out people who speak the truth. The problem with people like you, is your so afraid to do some self introspection and think outside your own indoctrinated beliefs. Keep yourself ignorant and keeping paying the church money (who pays no taxes) and put your children in the their hands.

  38. Once again, the catholic church emerges in pedophile implications, I can asure that they are behind it, and I wouldnt be shocked to hear that the “legionarios de Cristo”, the mexican born catholic institution responsible for thousands of child rapes, it is behind it. I whish I had the hality and connections to unmask them, no other institution on the face of the earth has done more damage to human kind than the Roman Catholic church

  39. Stumbled onto this a month ago,and blew my mind.
    Another Doc which sheds light on our shadow government is the Kay Griggs interview.
    If you’re a screenwriter you’d better get to work, because this doc story will definitely be circulating Hollywood in a few moths.

  40. Why is this Blog Engine Blogs inundated of Spam.? I bed seend lot’s of site same this… Several of them has attribute of Articles but works synoptical…

  41. I just made about twenty copies of this, I am going to make sure as many people as possible see it. This is digusting and a real eye opener, these men deserve death.
