Authorities arrest 378 pedophiles as part of Project Spade, thereby rescuing nearly 400 children.
According to NBC News,
“Police seized over 45 terabytes of data from the $4-million business that distributed child porn to over 50 counties including Australia, Spain, Mexico, Sweden and Greece. As a result of the investigation thus far, 50 people were arrested in Ontario, 58 in other parts of Canada, 76 in the United States, and 164 internationally.
What was most alarming was that many of the arrests were of people who worked with or closely interacted with children. Among those arrested were 40 school teachers, nine doctors and nurses, six law enforcement personnel, nine pastors and priests and three foster parents.”
Provided below is a slew of headlines to demonstrate that mass arrests are occurring all around the world including prominent politicians and figureheads, particularly after the inauguration of U.S. President Donald Trump. We rarely hear about these headlines, but when they are consolidated and sequenced chronologically, the trend becomes quite apparent.

The website, which was infiltrated and then subsequently taken over and run by the FBI as a trap, lured in tens of thousands of pedophiles.

“The material shows, among other things, the penetration of toddlers, children being tied up, children having sex with animals and children having sex with other children.”
All of the men arrested live in Norway, but police confirmed they were investigating one individual living abroad. It is considered one of the largest sexual abuse cases ever in the country.

According to RT,
“Nearly 900 members of a global ‘dark web’ pedophile ring sprawling Europe and the Americas have been arrested following a two-year investigation, the FBI and Europol reported after the website’s founder was handed a 30-year jail sentence.
Shedding light on the scope of the operation which is still active, the FBI revealed that in the US alone, 350 arrests were made as part of a wide-ranging investigation into Playpen – a secret website that is being referred to as possibly the biggest child pornography online dump that ever existed.
Europe accounts for the major share of arrests and convictions with 368 suspects being charged. A total of 870 arrests were made in connection with the case, according to Europol.
Over 300 children who had suffered sexual abuse at the hands of Playpen members have been identified or rescued.
Playpen’s founder, Steven W. Chase, 58, was sentenced Monday to 30 years behind bars. The site he set up in August 2014 boasted some 150,000 users worldwide until it was taken down by the FBI following a controversial covert operation.

November 3, 2017
Authorities arrest Howard Rubin, George Soros’ investment funds manager and right hand man, for sex trafficking in his $8 million Manhattan penthouse. Although this is not directly related to pedophilia, I decided to include this in our investigation because it is further evidence that the world’s elite are engaged in vile acts and that there is a crackdown occurring on human trafficking. Bear in mind that George Soros is directly connected to the Clintons.
Please be aware, the following account contains very graphic content. The Daily Mail reports,
“Once in Manhattan, (the victims) say he drugged them then violently beat them while they were gagged and bound in the sex dungeon, hitting woman so hard that she passed out as he demanded she call him ‘daddy’.
Two of them say he warned them: ‘I’m going to rape you like I rape my daughter,’ before attacking them and one says he punched her breast so hard her implant ‘flipped’.
They say he then covered up the alleged rapes and attacks and hushed them by paying them up to $5,000 each. His associates then gave them money to cover medical expenses incurred by the injuries he inflicted on them, they said.
‘Rubin brought the women into this side room (the “Dungeon”) and immediately slapped [one of them] across the face.
‘Not only had the slap been unexpected and hurt, but [she] had recently undergone a cosmetic treatment to her face, known commonly as fillers, and was concerned that Rubin would damage the treatment,’ the lawsuit reads.
He then allegedly ordered that woman to hit the other. When she refused, he said he hit her too.
They say he then tied them up, gagged them and said: ‘I’m going to rape you like I rape my daughter.’
He then punched them in the backs of their heads, breasts and rib cages, calling them c**ts and becoming more violent if they screamed, they said.
Rubin then allegedly threw one woman to the ground and ordered her to call him ‘daddy’ while he beat her in the back of the head until she lost consciousness.
‘He continued to punch her, stating that: “Howie is the daddy. The daddy has to beat his baby.’ The woman says he then raped her so violently it caused ‘tears to her vagina’.
In December 2016, he allegedly attacked another of the women with a cattle prod while she visited him by herself.
He raped her with the prod, then with a dildo and finally raped him herself, she claimed.”

Hacking Group “Anonymous” Takes Down Child Porn Sites and Assists FBI
On October 24, 2011, the international hacking group known only as Anonymous carried out Operation Darknet, taking offline 40 websites that traded in child porn. Additionally, it published the names of 1,500 pedophiles who used the website Lolita City. As a side note, I’d like to point out the strange similarity of the name of this child porn website and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet, the Lolita Express.
Then, two years later, the FBI busted a dark net hosting site called Freedom Hosting.
On August 5, 2013, The Verge reported,
“A man in Ireland believed to be behind Freedom Hosting, the biggest service provider for sites on the encrypted Tor network, is awaiting extradition on child pornography charges, reports The Independent. Denied bail until there is a ruling on the extradition request, Eric Eoin Marques has been described by an FBI special agent as “the largest facilitator of child porn on the planet,” and faces up to 30 years in prison if tried in the US.”
On March 13, 2014, a lone wolf hacktivist held the portal domain The Hidden Wiki hostage while demanding that all links to child porn be removed.
On February 3, 2017, Anonymous struck again, this time shutting down 10,613 Tor-accessible websites, or approximately 20% of the dark net, by compromising the servers of Freedom Hosting II, the second iteration of the popular dark net web hosting service. The hackers claimed that half of all the data stored on the servers was child pornography. According to the International Business Times, the hackers stole 75GB of files and 2.6GB of databases.
