The Memo: Is It Possible That the FBI and the DOJ Are Corrupt?


By Judith Reisman, PhD* - Barbwire guest contributor, February 8, 2018

The "Nunes Memo" declassified by President Trump and released to the public on February 2, 2018, describes allegations of deceit and corruption at the FBI and Department of Justice (DoJ) aimed at preventing President Trump's election. Like earlier accounts of reported corruption and injustice at the Justice Department, such as Sidney Powell's 2014 book, Licensed to Lie, the latest allegations of misuse of investigatory and prosecutorial power resemble my research-killing odyssey with the Justice Department, the FBI and academia over 30 years ago.

Following a "Crossfire" television Buchanan and Braden interview in 1983, the FBI and DoJ expressed great interest in my work and my theories of the causes for increases of child sex abuse. I agreed to give a two-hour presentation to a small cadre of criminal justice experts on my then-current book project, "From Shirley Temple to Pretty Baby" at an FBI-organized seminar at Sam Houston's Criminal Justice Center. There I presented evidence of how Alfred Kinsey's child sexual abuse data shaped education and law and how Playboy systemically used cartoons and images of children being sexually abused. These experts were shaken and Rodger Depue, head of FBI's behavioral science unit, summed up their views, saying; "we've been conned!!"

Depue gathered a blue-ribbon task force on the role of pornography in child sexual abuse. I was on that prestigious task force. And, DOJ's Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) approved the "Role of Pornography and Media Violence In Family Violence, Sexual Abuse and Exploitation, and Juvenile Delinquency, a DOJ study for which I would serve as principal investigator.

My two-part grant assignment was 1) To analyze Alfred Kinsey's Indiana University research ("sexology"), Sexual Behavior in The Human Male, 1948 and Sexual Behavior In The Human Female, 1953. My focus was exposure of Kinsey, the GLBTQ icon, for his criminal "orgasmic" experiments on children, 2-months to 14 years; and 2) To lead a team in content analysis of Images Of Children, Crime And Violence In Playboy, Penthouse, and Hustler Magazines from 1953-1984.

Our DOJ/FBI/Law enforcement, "Missing Children, Serial Murder Task Force" had high hopes for our unified effort examining, "the effect that pornography and sexology may have upon societal violence in general and juvenile exploitation and abuse in particular." The task force would develop a coordinated data storage and communication system focused on the causes of child sexual abuse. But, immediately after the grant was approved, a blitzkrieg of mass media aggression followed spearheaded by 13 Washington Post screeds setting off the national press, the American Psychological Association Monitor, Science Magazine and the Chronicle of Higher Education. These organized articles repeatedly condemned the study as unnecessary, silly, and too expensive. My credentials, my Ph.D. in mass media communication were jettisoned, and I was reported as merely a former "Capt. Kangaroo Songwriter."

My grant, nearly $1 million for two years was overseen by American University in Washington DC. Even before I began my study, I faced a congressional investigation. In fact, in the two years allotted for my research I endured three congressional investigations as well as late night university raids on my files, sabotaging of the records and grant findings and failed efforts to accuse me of financial malfeasance, all staged to invalidate the investigation. In my last conversation with my friend the great Justice Antonin Scalia he dubbed this bullying "governmental harassment." Indiana University's Kinsey Institute, Bantam Books, represented by the "Freedom to Read Committee of Association of American Publishers," and Playboy lobbyists, had hand-picked senators and congressmen who enforced the harassment.

My research team documented adult, "soft" pornography and Kinseyan sexology as causal in the emerging brutal and psychopathic sexual abuse of children. Our research exposed criminal, economic, and socio-sexual issues linked to powerful persons and groups. My proofs would critically damage the Kinsey Institute, pornographic profits, Planned Parenthood and the connections between all three.

The Kinsey Institute threatened to sue American University unless they stopped my study of Kinsey--which they did. Shortly afterward, AU president, Dr. Richard Berendzen was arrested for criminal child sexual solicitation via obscene phone calls. Also, the head of the psychology department, Dr. Elliott McGinnies, was arrested in 1986 for child sexual abuse at a Maryland nudist park. I would soon learn that other professors at the university were either perverted, or just weaklings protecting their jobs. Honor is rare in the so-called Academy.

I knew many honorable rank and file officers at DOJ, OJJDP and the FBI. However, leaders are always vulnerable to ambition, blackmail, bribery or threats. A DOJ official confided, when DOJ backpedaled from my research, "Judith, you're damaged goods." All my grant research findings "vanished" from OJJDP secure files.

Thanks to the quiet efforts of Dr. Jerry Falwell's committed and dedicated staff, my original records were reproduced for OJJDP on time. In under 24 hours the ~2000 page report was rejected as "flawed" by American University and DOJ/OJJDP. Corruption oozes out of the "Speirs Memo" (below) which implies imprisonment for any daring to distribute my research findings.

The 1988 video interview with Dr. Falwell [below], exposes the Speirs Memo for the level of corruption infecting the government. According to the memo, anyone could go to prison for disseminating my report. So, Speirs and lawyer Lauer admit my report, Images of Children, Crime and Violence in Playboy, Penthouse and Hustler (1986) included criminal, images of child pornography. But it was me, not the publishers, they threatened with arrest.

The extent of the undermining of my research is seen even now as, OJJDP's "Missing & Abducted" children's center ignores data linking pornography to child sexual abuse despite the epidemic of global infant/child rape pornography. "One in every 10 images of online child abuse" are "under the age of three....61 percent are...between four and 12" and about half involving "rape of a child. Remember, 5,200 Pentagon officers were caught buying child pornography in 2006 and never were fully investigated.

My own journey suggests toxic institution corruption similar to that now seen in "The Memo." When society has been corrupted by evil men in positions of power, all institutions fall prey. Universities, the FBI, DOJ, State Department, Health and Human Services, the Department of Education, all reflect what has been taught and accepted for four generations, i.e., the Kinseyan doctrine that children are sexual from birth, thus any harm to children from sex reflects parent, teacher hysteria, repressed, religious fear of sexuality.

Kinsey also purported to have established gender fluidity, homosexuality as 10 to 37 percent of our male population, and rape as rare and without negative consequences, again unless police and/or parents are hysterical. This was taught in college, then high school now primary grades, entering law in 1948 and the American Law Institute Model Penal Code in 1955.


Even 30+ years ago the institutional bias from Kinseyan indoctrination was present as seen in the shocking answer I received when I informed OJJDP of my past politically radical (Marxist) history. "Oh, we knew. If you were Christian you would have been rejected-too easily torn apart by the press."

As is even more apparent today, religious believers are silently shunned by secular universities and most, if not all, government research, but those who might have espoused Marxism are acceptable. Just ponder the implications for truth and knowledge arising from that bias.

Were the results of our study known in the early 80s, our data could have lent power to stemming what has become child carnage, exemplified by the vicious abuse of 150 young gymnasts by their infamous, obviously university educated, "Doctor." Epidemic child rape and child pornography proves corruption in the body politic, education, justice, and both sides of the congressional aisle. Shining light on the slough of corruption-wherever it is--well, that's a gutsy start.
