Abe Saffron was an infamous Sydney vice lord between the 1960s and 1990s.

Abe Safrron ran blackmail operations against police and politicians. 

He would provide prominent people with prostitutes, film them and fix them that way. 

This aspect has disappeared from the narrative but they were using young girls also is my understanding. 

This is an ok ABC documentary about Saffron, all that is required to understand what is happening is to realise that the events described in this never stopped

Interestingly regarding Epstein and so many other similar cases, Saffron was from a Jewish background and maintained close ties with Israel throughout his life. 

There is no real evidentiary connection but at face value Saffron looks just like a cutout or front-man for Israeli intelligence.

Note the association of Pentagon asset ? "Red Rupert" Murdoch with mysterious death of Aussie PM Harold Holt beneficiary John McEwen

Murdoch of course was staunch in his support for Traitor Tony Blair who rose to power following the mysterious death of John Smith a man out of favour with the Pentagon's Bilderberg group.

The disappearance – 17 December 1967

Harold Holt disappeared while swimming at Cheviot Beach near Portsea, Victoria on 17 December, 1967. His body was never recovered. Without determining the cause of Holt's death, a joint report by Commonwealth and Victoria Police, submitted in January 1968, concluded that, '… there has been no indication that the disappearance of the late Mr Holt was anything other than accidental'. The report (see copy on file A1209, 1968/8063) found that his last movements followed a routine domestic pattern, his demeanour had been normal and despite his knowledge of the beach, the turbulent conditions (high winds, rough seas and rip tides) overcame him. The explanations put forward for a failure to find the body included an attack by marine life, the body being carried out to sea by tides or becoming wedged in rock crevices.

While a variety of theories have been expounded about Holt's disappearance, the Commonwealth Government did not deem a formal inquiry necessary, accepting the conclusions of the Police report.

Records of the political events following Holt's disappearance

These include personal papers of Country Party leader John McEwen, who was sworn in as caretaker Prime Minister on 19 December 1967, until the Liberal Party could elect a new leader. Papers of McEwen held in series M58 deal with the critical questions arising from the death of a Prime Minister, the visit of President Johnson, and the meeting of Cabinet he attended while in Australia.

Murdoch found a political ally in John McEwen, leader of the Australian Country Party (now known as the National Party of Australia), who was governing in coalition with the larger Menzies-Holt Liberal Party. From the very first issue of The Australian Murdoch began taking McEwen's side in every issue that divided the long-serving coalition partners. (The Australian, 15 July 1964, first edition, front page: "Strain in Cabinet, Liberal-CP row flares.") It was an issue that threatened to split the coalition government and open the way for the stronger Australian Labor Party to dominate Australian politics. It was the beginning of a long campaign that served McEwen well

Note the timely appearance down under of Kennedy assassination beneficiary Lyndon Johnson.

Abe Saffron and JNF

Theeman’s associate, Abe Saffron, dubbed Mr. Sin, was a major figure in Australian organized crime. His criminal activities which included illegal gaming, adult and child prostitution, pornography, sly grog shops, drugs, money laundering and extortion, were protected by police commissioners Allen and Hanson and the state premier Robert Askin who were given substantial bribes. He also maintained sordid dossiers on influential people blackmailing them to further his interests. Saffron eventually served 17 months for tax evasion. Tony Reeves closes his book, Mr. Sin: The Abe Saffron Dossier with the quote “He was scum. He will not be missed”.

Saffron invested vast sums to reinvent himself as a reputable pillar of society through ostentatious donations to charities including the Jewish National Fund (JNF). Like the Technion, the JNF is an accessory to war crimes – in this case the war crime of the illegal settlement of Israeli citizens of the Israeli colonies on stolen Palestinian land.

Peter Abeles, Eddie Kornhauser and Haifa University

Sir (the knighthood allegedly bought through the corrupt Askin) Peter Abeles was also a close associate of Mr. Sin. Abeles, the TNT transport magnate (and Ansett partner of Rupert Murdoch) according to Reeves, moved “large quantities of illegal drugs around Australia and the world, and was closely associated with the notorious Nugan Hand Bank” that acted as a CIA front to finance the war in Laos by laundering drug money as well as drug dealing, arms shipments and large scale tax avoidance. Abeles was also linked to the US West Coast Mafia and the Four Corners current affair program’ claimed that TNT paid $US 300,000 to companies associated with east coast Mafia lieutenant, Benny Mangano.’

None of the above criminal dealings were mentioned when Abeles was conferred with an honorary doctorate by the University of Haifa (UH) in 1988.

As well as having a law faculty building named after him, an honorary doctorate was conferred in 1996 to a generous donor to UH- Queensland property developer Eddie Kornhauser, against whom claims were made of money laundering and an early association with Mr. Sin. He figured in the in the Fitzgerald inquiry into police and political corruption. In Israel he was instrumental in planting, in honor of his mate, the Bob Hawke forest near Mount Carmel.

By the by, Tony Blair, a Quartet envoy, who should be charged with war crimes for the destruction of Iraq, also got an UH honorary doctorate in 2002 for (don’t laugh) ‘the establishment of peace in the Middle East and his friendship toward the State of Israel’.

The Secret History of Rupert Murdoch: CIA/Mafia Drug & Murder Ties, Cover-Ups in Australia

Later, as is to be expected, the media acted in concert with the legal system:

Stewart’s conclusion that there was no evidence of links with the CIA was headlined in [Rupert] Murdoch’s Australian as “CIA Link Disproved.” As Brian Toohey commented in the National Times: “Far from being disproved, the extent of the links was not even investigated by Justice Stewart in any normal sense of the world.” (p.170)

Murdoch’s partner, Peter Abeles, a Mafia kingpin, started up Australia’s Nugan Hand Bank, the CIA’s money laundering front.

And you consider: Perhaps the hideous Rupert Murdoch is not merely an independent “conservative” propagandist whose view of the world is parallel to General Pinochet’s, but one deliberately installed to program public opinion. Could that be?

How did he really get to where he is today? No penetrating answers come from the status quo, ever.

Does anyone care that this “conservative” charlatan without a conscience is ushering in open fascist rule on a red carpet of lies?

Murdoch is a former CIA heroin importer, the kind of man Americans adore. Today, he’s the beloved programmer of Good Germans everywhere. Time to demand an independent investigation of state propagandists from Langley, because America may not survive them. – AC

“Bill Casey was one of the key men in the acquisition of media after WW2. It was one of his proteges (a young German immigrant to the US) who was sent back to Germany after the war to take over Bertelsmann and build it up. Rupert Murdoch was very tight with Shackley, which is how he got launched on his global acquisitions and has now taken over the WSJ. Murdoch was running a failed national newspaper in Australia while Shackley was station chief in Oz. Then suddenly he becomes a US citizen literally overnight and goes on an endless buying spree. Shackley’s pockets were infinitely deep. At the time, Murdoch was facing the likely closure of his newspaper THE AUSTRALIAN. His ticket out was Shackley. This also explains why Murdoch was allowed to break all the rules in acquisition of media in America.”

I gather that Abe Saffron was well-liked, and as his son points out in his new book, he built an empire on activities which were once illegal but which are now legal; he also curried favour with the Jewish community by giving donations to institutions like Moriah College... Alan Saffron claims that his father was indeed involved in all of the activities that have long been alleged (including prostitution), that he bribed Askin and Allan, acted as bagman for most organised crime in the city and loaned money to Frank Theeman, Peter Abeles, Kerry Packer and Paul Strasser. [1]

Lets use the example of Australia's former most powerful mafia don - Abraham Saffron. He dominated the crime scene in the 70's and early eighties. He had Oz media mogul Sir Frank Packer in his pocket by photographing him through his string of brothels with one way mirrors. It's said he also had Kerry Packer in his pocket and was in fact bringing in heroin into Australia with Mr Packer in the early eighties through Packers string of cattle stations in the north of Australia.

A very interesting article which explains a lot. So Murdoch isn't the result of hard work and shrift, the 'American Dream', but he was helped by the ruling elite so he could spill right wing propaganda.

The Sun say's that Labour lost the last election because it stopped listening to ordinary people. The Sun sticks up for the ordinary guy, it said. What people want is jobs, it proclaimed.

The Dickenson sweatshops are back. Real men are not scared of work - at any rate, at any hour, at any place, for any length of time. Overtime rates fast disappearing to be replaced by flat rate extended hours. Those on salaries are expected to stay behind for free to get the job done. Some of the agency mechanics who work at my place sleep in their cars overnight.

Neoliberal policies of mass immigration were to bring wages down and whack up demand for houses skyrocketing their prices even further. Huge mortgages for ordinary people meaning even longer hours spent at work, or having to get two or three jobs to make ends meet, but mega profits for bankers, aka, the ruling class.

The working class goes through the mincer. Work, work, work, and faster, and faster, and faster. No mention that ordinary people might want to spend more quality time with their families and children, have more time for hobbies, have more time to do things with friends, have more time to recuperate. No, just zero hours for the unfortunate. "My granny loves zero hours', proudly proclaim some Sun readers who write in.

But millions are hooked on antidepressants, which hardly work. Another little earner for the ruling establishment, where the brain becomes accustomed to them so higher dosages are needed.

It would appear that Murdoch had a very big hand up from his CIA friends. This continues to this day see Genie Energy Golan heights.

President Ronald Reagan meets with Charles Douglas Home, editor of London Times, and its publisher Rupert Murdoch in the Oval Office on July 7, 1983. (Photo credit: Reagan presidential library)

VP at the time was George Herbert Walker Bush (born June 12, 1924) 11th Director of Central Intelligence
In office
January 30, 1976 – January 20, 1977

Reagan & Murdoch CIA funding !

“Casey was kind of spearheading a recommendation” for better public relations for Reagan’s Central America policies, recalled William I. Greener Jr., one of the ad men. Two top proposals arising from the meeting were for a high-powered communications operation inside the White House and private money for an outreach program to build support for U.S. intervention.

The results from the discussions were summed up in an Aug. 9, 1983, memo written by Raymond who described Casey’s participation in the meeting to brainstorm how “to sell a ‘new product’ – Central America – by generating interest across-the-spectrum.”

In the memo to then-U.S. Information Agency director Charles Wick, Raymond also noted that “via Murdock [sic] may be able to draw down added funds” to support pro-Reagan initiatives. Raymond’s reference to Rupert Murdoch possibly drawing down “added funds” suggests that the right-wing media mogul had been recruited to be part of the covert propaganda operation. During this period, Wick arranged at least two face-to-face meetings between Murdoch and Reagan.

In line with the clandestine nature of the operation, Raymond also suggested routing the “funding via Freedom House or some other structure that has credibility in the political center.” (Freedom House would later emerge as a principal beneficiary of funding from the National Endowment for Democracy, which was also created under the umbrella of Raymond’s operation.)

Murdoch CIA / MOSSAD media always backs wars for profit .. from the Falklands to Iraq and Syria the media mouthpieces are consistent. Every enemy of choice is framed as "the new Hitler" rinse & repeat cycle.

Golan Heights

What do Dick Cheney, James Woolsey, Bill Richardson, Jacob Lord Rothschild, Rupert Murdock, Larry Summers and Michael Steinhardt have in common? They all are members of the Strategic Advisory Board of a Newark, New Jersey-based oil and gas group with the name, Genie Energy. It’s quite a collection of names.

Dick Cheney, before becoming George W. Bush’s “shadow president” in 2001, was CEO of the world’s largest oilfield services company, Halliburton, also reported to be a CIA-linked company tied to the Bush family cabal. James Woolsey, a neo-con former CIA Director under Bill Clinton, today sits as the chairman of the neo-con think-tank, Foundation for Defense of Democracies, and is a member of the pro-Likud Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP). He was a member of the infamous Project for a New American Century (PNAC), along with Cheney, Don Rumsfeld and a gaggle of neo-cons who later staffed the Bush-Cheney administration. After September 11, 2001 Woolsey referred to the Bush-Cheney War on Terror as “World War IV,” counting the Cold War as World War III. Bill Richardson is a former US Secretary of Energy. Rupert Murdock, owner of major US and UK media including the Wall Street Journal, is the major financier of the neo-conservative Weekly Standard of Bill Kristol, who founded the PNAC. Larry Summers was US Treasury Secretary and drafted the laws that deregulated US banks from the 1933 Glass-Steagall Act, in effect opening the floodgates to the US financial crisis of 2007-2015. Michael Steinhardt the hedge fund speculator, is a philanthropic friend of Israel, of Marc Rich and a board member of Woolsey’s neo-con Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. And Jacob Lord Rothschild is a former business partner of convicted Russian oil oligarch, Mikhail Khodorkovsky. Before his arrest Khodorkovsky secretly transferred his shares in Yukos Oil to Rothschild. Rothschild is a part-owner of Genie Energy which in 2013 was granted exclusive oil and gas exploration rights to a 153-square mile radius in the southern part of the Golan Heights by the Netanyahu government. In short, it’s quite an eye-popping board.

Fox News ( Murdoch Poison )

My Fox News Views colleague, Radley Balko, had a recent column in which he usefully laid out some of the more extreme arguments both for and against the renewal of the war against Saddam Hussein's brutal regime.

One of the arguments that Radley pointed out was comparisons of Saddam with Adolf Hitler. I respect Radley, and generally agree with him, but I don't think that such a comparison is in any way "extreme." Of course, it could be because one of my own Weblog's stocks in trade is such comparisons, or to be more precise, parodies of how today's media would report World War II.

Radley says:

Saddam Hussein is not Hitler. He’s certainly not worse than Hitler (as Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens once said on the floor of the U.S. Senate). He’s likely every bit the moral midget Hitler was, but he hasn’t the means, the capacity, the wealth, the support or, frankly, the charisma Hitler had. Hitler was a threat to the world. He conquered most of Europe. He killed six million Jews.
