Why did Gerry McCann spend 5 whole days in the company of Ernie Allen of NCMEC & ICMEC in July 2007? Interesting new article: "Hiding in Plain Sight: NCMEC - Part 1"

Post by Tony Bennett on 16.04.17 22:32

Just spotted this article which raises serious questions about the two U.S., Washington-based Missing Children organisations, NCMEC and ICMEC, run by Ernie Allen, friend of Sir Richard Branson and 'Pedo Island' owner, Jeffrey Epstein.

The recent 'Pizzagate' scandal is also Washington-based, of course.

Gerry McCann flew to Washington in July 2007, spending 5 days there being shown around by his host, the same Ernie Allen.

ETA:    Since posting this article I have discovered two more in-depth investigative articles on Ernie Allen's ICMEC, here:

and here


Hiding in Plain Sight – NCMEC - Part 1

v4vapid64 in pedogate

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children is often held up as a model for NGOs. Both its sister organization the International Center for Missing and Exploited Children (ICMEC) and the NCMEC board of directors are filled with Washington insiders, the political elite, royalty, heads of multinational corporations, high powered lawyers and consultants.
These organizations both have extensive partnerships with networks of NGOs, industry leaders and government agencies. I’ve been looking into both of these organizations for several months and I’m convinced that they are connected to elite pedophile rings that have begun to be exposed by the ongoing pedogate/pizzagate open source investigations.
It will not be possible to lay out the case in a single post, instead I will break up my findings into several posts. In this post, I will simply focus on donor relationships and the NCMEC. I’m not accusing the organization or anyone of crimes, this is just a working theory.

The Tech Industry and the NCMEC

The NCMEC partners with an impressive assortment of donors across a variety of industries. If you visit their webpage you will find dozens of brand name companies such as Google, Disney, Walmart, Newscorp, Canon, the Gap and many more featured on their donations list and program partnerships. As would be expected, the NCMEC gives prominence to their largest donors and features their generosity by placing them together in a group called: The Children’s Leadership Circle.
These donors have contributed $400, 000 or more to the organization.
One of the most striking observations though, is that there is a particularly strong relationship between the NCMEC and the IT industry. Along with the GAP and Google in the top rung of donations is the infamous Silicon Valley CIA start-up Palantir.
Before discussing the relationship between Palantir and the NCMEC. Let’s have a look at the list of IT, telecom and media companies that make significant donations to the organization.
List of NCMEC’s Corporate Donors

$400,000+ = Children’s Leadership Circle

• Google
• Adobe
• Sprint
• Honeywell
• Lexis Nexis
• Clear Channel (Outdoor / Sports)

$250,000-$399,000 = Children’s Society

• Disney Penguin Club

$100,000-$249,000 = Children’s Guild

• Newscorp
• Thomson Reuters
• Viacom
• Total Defense
CA Technologies
• Motorolla Solutions Foundation
• Intrado

$75,000-$99,000 = Children’s Committee

Vigilant Solutions

$50,000-$74,000 = Corporate Patron

• Microsoft
• Yahoo!
• Entertainment Software Association Foundation
If we only include the top 12 donors in the Children’s Leadership Circle, the donations are easily in excess of $50 million.
In the following sections the relationships between a few specific IT companies and NCMEC will be highlighted.


There has been significant discussion about how the CIA provided millions in initial funding for, former Pay-Pal co-founder Peter Thiel’s, Palantir software company.
Palantir has not only been tied to the CIA but it is also rumored to be involved in partnerships with the NSA and FBI. The company has been referred to as Big-data specializing in processing, sorting, and streamlining enormous amounts of data. The proprietary software has been used in a wide variety of applications for the military and also working with the banking industry, government agencies and non-profit organizations.

Palantir software has been linked to spying and surveillance of Social Media Sites conducted in conjunction with CIA and FBI programs. Particularly, workers unions were targets of surveillance.
Palantir is also involved in tracking the movement of ISIS in Syria and has partnered with Polaris to combat human trafficking in the US.
The CIA backed Silicon Valley company also works in partnership with the Clinton Global Initiative according to Palantir’s website.

NCMEC & Palantir Partnership

According to this 2011 Bloomberg article:
Palantir has also been used to unravel child abuse and abduction cases. Palantir “gives us the ability to do the kind of link-and-pattern analysis we need to build cases, identify perpetrators, and rescue children,” says Ernie Allen, CEO of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The software recently helped NCMEC analysts link an attempted abduction with previous reports of the suspect to the center’s separate cyber-tip line—and plot that activity on a map. “We did it within 30 seconds,” Allen says. “It is absolutely a godsend for us.”
This NCMEC promotional video highlights how Palantir integrates different data sources to improve the organization’s capabilities –

Vigilant Solutions

If you visit Vigilant Solutions website you’ll discover that the company is primarily involved in two main tech developments.
[*]License Plate Recognition
[*]Facial Recognition software
Both technologies are aimed at facilitating law enforcement workflows.

Vigilant Solutions Promo

There are a number of valid criticisms of Vigilant’s technologies. For example, have a look at this scathing critic:

The License Plate Recognition software is automatic, therefore if you are not in trouble with the law the software is still running your plates and providing your information officers regardless of the situation.
It’s not a stretch to suspect that if they’re running an auto-recognition scan on your license plate then their also likely running facial recognition automatically as well, without justification.


Greatcall is another company that’s involved with tracking and surveillance.
Not only has the company developed a GPS tracking system aimed at seniors that have health issues but is has also developed:

The Lively Urgent Response Device: GPS Tracking for Kids

The promotional page plays on the fears of parents and offers a reassuring solution. Track your child anywhere at anytime.
Curiously, it states that “Parents, or any certified profile user…” can have access to your child’s whereabouts.
One thing we can be sure of is that employees of agencies, such as the NSA, who have mass surveillance capacities NEVER use the technology in inappropriate ways or outside of professional protocol, right?

NSA Admits Employees Spied on Loved Ones

CA Technologies

CA Technologies is one of the rare tech companies that has longevity. Unfortunately, their history is marred by numerous controversies.

• Breach of contract
• Artificially inflating stock value
• Misuse of copyright
• Copyright infringement
• Misappropriation of trade secrets
• Violation of anti-trust laws
• Misstating revenue ($500 million)
• 8 executives plead guilty to fraud
• 1 executive sentenced to 12 years

Disney Penguin Club

The Disney Penguin Club has made significant contributions to the NCMEC and is featured on their corporate donor page.
DPC is an interactive virtual world for children, it promotes fun activities as well as online safety for children. It also provides tips that encourage parents to be aware of and to monitor their children’s online activities.
To gain access to the virtual penguin themed world you must pay to become a member of the Penguin Club. However, there are several promotional videos describing the various activities offered on the site.
There are a lot of images of pizza laced through the main promotional video, including an animated character who is dressed up in a pizza costume. It seems innocent enough, there is a separate promo for “Food” with a penguin eating pizza as well. Sometimes, pizza is just pizza, right?

But I also found this Swirl symbol in one of the frames. The narrator is talking about how much fun it is to have an ‘igloo party’.

Although, I don’t feel these images are damning, they are a bit odd.
The website is currently celebrating the fact that DPC will go mobile in March 2017! This may or may not tie in with tracking children.


None of these companies, perhaps with the exception of Palantir, seem to be nefarious actors but taken together, there is a heavy trend towards mass surveillance and the tracking of individuals. In the context of the partnership with NCMEC, it would also appear that the tracking and monitoring of children is something that they hope to expand through their working relationship. By playing on the fears of the most vulnerable in society, children and the elderly, tracking systems are being presented to the public as convenient and desirable solutions.
Finally, there was a post here on in the last couple of days that contained a video where a CHIP program was discussed involving the NCMEC. I believe the video claimed that the CHIP program was created by Free Masons. The video was little bit over the top but in light of what we’ve explored above, it doesn’t seem implausible. Whether it’s secret societies or corporations that attempt to usher in the tracking of children, we need to stop and realize what the implications of this type of surveillance are for society as a whole.

Re: Why did Gerry McCann spend 5 whole days in the company of Ernie Allen of NCMEC & ICMEC in July 2007? Interesting new article: "Hiding in Plain Sight: NCMEC - Part 1"

The recent 'Pizzagate' scandal is also Washington-based, of course.

Gerry McCann flew to Washington in July 2007, spending 5 days there being shown around by his host, the same Ernie Allen.
I wonder if Gerry McCann's seemingly unecessary visit to the US of A had anything to do with Lady Catherine 'my husband stole my children' Meyer - wife of former British Ambassador to the United States (1997-2003)? 

Kate McCann's autobiographical novel follows thus..

8th May 2007

As we were walking up from the beach at about 5pm, I had a call from Cherie Blair, in her final days as wife of the prime minister (her husband Tony would announce his resignation two days later and leave office the following month). She was kind and helpful. She told me it was amazing but encouraging that Madeleine was still the first topic on the news every night.

This was only five days after the abduction: as it turned out, our poor daughter would continue to headline the bulletins for some time to come. Cherie also warned me, ‘Whatever happens, your life will never be the same again.’ She mentioned that a friend of hers, Catherine Meyer, was the founder of PACT – Parents and Abducted Children Together – and said she would get in touch with her on my behalf.

Lady Catherine Meyer - wikipedia

In 1998, she was involved in the launch of the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), launched by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), and subsequently becoming CEO of ICMEC/Europe.  In 2000 she created Parents & Abducted Children Together (PACT), affiliated to NCMEC and ICMEC.

During her time in Washington D.C., Meyer co-chaired with Ernie Allen two international conferences on improving the effectiveness of the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction and gave evidence to committees of the United States House of Representatives and the US Senate which led to several concurrent resolutions urging better compliance by certain signatory states, including Germany, with the Hague Convention 1996;  and persuaded both Presidents Clinton and Bush to raise with the German Chancellor cases of parental child abduction to Germany, including her own.

She has also taken her campaign against international parental child abduction to Europe, giving evidence before the Belgian Senate.;  successfully lobbying the EU to tighten its rules against parental child abduction;  and, together with ICMEC, persuading the Permanent Bureau of the Hague Convention to produce a good practice guide to the implementation of the Convention.

In the UK, Meyer instigated adjournment debates in the House of Commons on her case and the issue of parental child abduction in general across frontiers. In 2005, the Parliamentary Ombudsman upheld her complaint of maladministration against the then Lord Chancellor's Department with regard to the handling of her case.

Since 2003 and her return to the UK from America, she has broadened PACT's mission to embrace children who go missing for any reason.  This has led to close cooperation with the Home Office, the police, CEOP and other charities.  She is a member of the Home Secretary's Strategic Oversight Group on missing people, created in 2006 by David Blunkett. Her campaigns have focussed on the difficulties of measuring exactly how many children go missing every year;   the adoption by police forces of the Missingkids Website;   and the Child Rescue Alert.  On 25 May 2011, International Missing Children's Day, the Home Office announced major changes to child protection services in the UK, in particular the passing of responsibility for missing, abducted and exploited children to the Child Exploitation and Online Protection agency (CEOP). This was the culmination of a ten-year lobbying campaign. Meyer's role was recognised in the Home Office press release.

All roads lead to Rome - in more than one sense.

Interesting bits highlighted in purple. The connections between e.g. Ernie Allen (NCMEC) and Jeff Koons and James Alefantis (head of the Pizzagate trafficking ring in Washington will be of interest to anyone following Pizzagate...  

Jeff Koons, the Koons Family Institute and the ICMEC (International Center for Missing and Exploited Children)

[Article filed in December 2016, shortly after the revelations about the sordid Pizzagate scandal]  

v4vapid64 in icmec

I’m new here and these are reposts from as I feel they are getting buried quickly. Maybe I'm in the wrong time zone or have bad timing just as the latest "SMOKING GUN" drops.
Please, check this out.
This is an add on to Pleading the Yiff’s post
I looked into the ICMEC a little bit more and want to share a few notable things I found.
[*]The ICMEC (International Center for Missing and Exploited Children) It turns out that Jeff Koons is more involved with the ICMEC than most people realize. In fact he is on the Board of Directors
" />
[*]It doesn’t end there, the ICMEC has a research wing headed by Justine and Jeff Koons – The Koons Family Institute
[*]The Koons Family institute focusses on research into child trafficking and child abuse as well as creating legislation to combat child pornography.
PDF file:
[*]Pictured with the Koons in this photograph is Maura Harty who worked at the State Department from 2002-2008 as Assistant Secretary of State for Consular Affairs. Harty also worked at the Office of Children’s Issues (develops and coordinates policies and programs related to international child abduction) now works as CEO of ICMEC.
Wikipedia Bio:
US State Department Bio:
[*]The ICMEC was created largely due to the Dutroux Case.

In this photograph from the ICMEC website we see Hillary Clinton and the text below champions ICMEC’s role prevention of child trafficking, abuse and exploitation.
[*]The board of directors at ICMEC is a long list and I haven’t dug very deep into the other members but something that stuck out was Costas Yannapoulos of Smile of the Child a Greek anti-child trafficking organization (probably worth investigating further).
This website is in Greek. I have not read anything suspicious or unsavory about this organization I just think it should be looked into, especially considering what we are starting to see concerning these ‘anti-trafficking’ organizations.
I did a quick search in English for Smile of the children and the firs image that came up was this one (Smile of a Child).

This is in relation to a fundraiser “Smile of a Child tv”
Maybe it is completely unrelated to “Smile of the Child”
[*]Also, I think it’s worth mentioning that several PDF documents concerning Koons/Koons Family Institute are ‘unavailable’ at this time.

So, we have ties from the State Department and Clinton to the ICMEC and previous diggers have connected Koons, Alefantis and Brock.
Furthermore, ICMEC and NCMEC have an obvious bond and through the NCMEC we have connections to Laura Silsby (arrested by Haitian police trying to extract 33 children at the border of the Dominican Republic). Perhaps these connections explain the intense interest displayed by Clinton and the State department regarding Silsby’s arrest.

Via Wikileaks:
Arrest of 10 AMCITs / 33 children Haiti / Dom. Rep
Judge releases missionaries in relation to child kidnapping in Haiti
Haiti / mission plan to take 100 children to DR
I hope this contributes to the body of great research you’ve all done.
I have other strands of investigation that I plan on adding to the discussion soon and I intend to dig deeper into the connections here. Please dive on in and help. I think there is more to discover here!

Pizzagate Murder? Researcher in Haiti Looking At Clinton Child Sex Trafficking Commits Suicide
Posted on November 18, 2016 by Anonymous Conservative

Free Republic collects links on Reddit-uncovered story. Supposedly two shots to the head:
Monica Petersen was in Haiti working for the Human Trafficking Center and also previously worked for the Colorado Human Trafficking Council’s Data & Research Task Force.
She died a few days ago under suspicious circumstances. Her friends on Facebook are looking for answers. Several close friends have made mentions on various FB posts that friends and family have no clear understanding of what happened to Monica except that she died on Sunday.
Earlier this year a FB friend of Monica re-shared a post by Monica where Monica linked to a blog post critical of Hillary Clinton’s dealings in Haiti!! SHE WAS ONTO SOMETHING, very likely between now and then she found out about #PIZZAGATE!…
“It seems that Monica was in Haiti investigating the Clintons possible ties to a pedophile ring. Monica family hasn’t been able to get any straight answers about her death”
Don’t take on the powers that be, and then travel to a lawless third world shithole where you can’t roll armed.
As somebody pointed out on Free Republic, why Haiti? Every catastrophe which hits Haiti hits the Dominican Republic. Yet all we hear about is Haiti. The DR has a functioning government which will protect its people, and which makes exploiting them much more difficult.
On a related note, downthread in the above link, it is noted that now the online researchers are beginning to ask if the National Center For Missing and Exploited Children may be infiltrated in some fashion:
III. NCMEC Connection to Alefantis/Brock
A. James Alefantis/David Brock/the “DC Group” Connections to Jeff Koons
Remember how James Alefantis posted an “art” piece by Jeff Koons showing him having sex with what is purportedly his pornstar wife?
It turns out that Jeff Koons is more to Alefantis than an artist he admires. To begin with, Koons is very involved with the DC/East Coast art scene.
Here on page 10 both Alefantis and Koons are mentioned as being involved in the DC art scene for example:
But none of these circumstantial bits of evidence are as important as the discovery that Correct the Record paid Jeff Koons $50,000 according to their SEC filing, seen here on page 9:
Correct the Record is run by David Brock, who is in a relationship with James Alefantis. Here is a link confirming this and showing them caught up with another individual in some kind of blackmail love triangle:
Here is a photo of Brock on Alefantis’ Instagram:
B. Jeff Koons Work Connections to the NCMEC
How is the connection to Koons Important? Koons is a board member of the International Center for Missing and Exploited Children (ICMEC). You can find an admission of that fact on his own web page:
The ICMEC was founded in 1998 by none other than the NCMEC:
Alefantis is the owner of Comet Ping Pong Pizza, and a key figure in the alleged DC Ring. That is a lot of openly confirmed, proud sexual deviancy gravitating to groups and endeavors that give access to children, mixed with suspicious graphics, and unusual coded emails, and people scrubbing their social media profiles in ways that are really not easily explainable as of now, outside of the pedophile paradigm. It would not be surprising that key foxes might seek to gain entrance to the henhouses. There is much more examination of all the linkages at the link. This isn’t all cut and dried, but it has definitely progressed from conspiracy theory, to something that requires a much closer look.
At this point, I will believe anything. It would explain the panic of the Elites when Trump began to ascend. Between this, the Clinton Foundation Pay for Play type scams, the economic rape of the nation by connected insiders, and who knows what else is going on, it would be terrifying to see a real outsider, who wasn’t hip-deep in corruption himself, gain the highest office in the land.
I link to this because it should get press, but this is such an expansive subject, and the material so potentially horrific, that I cannot begin to do the research credit. Those who actually are doing the digging deserve incredible appreciation. That said, they should keep their eyes open, and recognize they could end up in danger at some point. Change routes, shake up routines, and don’t be predictable. If you ever notice in passing that something seems odd, or the events of the moment are leading you to some position in space/time very efficiently, change course, because you could be getting led to something bad. And keep an eye out for any potential threats or any stranger’s unusual interest in you at all times.
Again, this is too much resources in our environment. None of these characters would survive the Apocalypse themselves. But with cash flying everywhere around them like a tornado, and no danger or adversity, they can easily band together to amass their wealth off of mere social climbing, as they protect each other from any consequence. Only r-selection favors social climbing and immorality over ability and pro-sociality.
And having accumulated that wealth and power, suddenly they are dangerous.

Re: Why did Gerry McCann spend 5 whole days in the company of Ernie Allen of NCMEC & ICMEC in July 2007? Interesting new article: "Hiding in Plain Sight: NCMEC - Part 1"

The Dark Side of the International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children

rebelskum (65) in pizzagate •  9 months ago

The ICMEC was formed in 1998 in the aftermath of the Dutroux Affair and the massive cover-up to save high-profile perpetrators. The Belgium public was outraged, there were large protests in the streets and the only man making progress in the investigation was sacked.(1)

Action was needed to placate the people.

Several child protection agencies sprung up around the world, the NCMEC acting as a template organization who then founded ICMEC to act as the head coordinating effort. The NCMEC office is located nearby, also in Alexandria, VA.

The official launch of ICMEC was made in London 1999, launched by Hillary Clinton and Cherie Blair, wife of Tony Blair.

This article will attempt to digest many of their significant connections which can be backed by solid evidence in furtherance of my goals to preserve such information cohesively on the blockchain. This will include the connections illustrated in the above mindmap, as well as valuable additional information.

Relation to the disappearance of Madeleine McCann

At least two board members for ICMEC, Ernie Allen and Elizabeth Bagley, had some connection to the McCann family and/or possibly Madeleine's disappearance.

Ernie Allen is the Chairman of ICMEC. His work got Wall St and big pharma support for ICMEC. Gerry McCann, father of Madeleine McCann, personally flew to from Portugal to D.C. to meet with him in August 2007. Apparently he makes millions from taxpayers covering up missing children statistics:

   Mr. Allen is personally raking in nearly one million U.S. Dollars ($1.000.000,00) annually courtesy of the United States taxpayer. On the basis of his Center's missing children statistics, Congress rewarded the American Center with a huge budget that must be the envy of every NGO on the planet, without any oversight or preconditions. Yet, were it not for the pressure being placed on Mr. Allen by members of this committee, in both civil and criminal proceedings, the American public and the world community would still be entirely unaware that they were being misled.

   The December 2, 2009 testimony of Mr. Ernie Allen before the Tom Lantos Commission demonstrates that the American organisations are hiding from the public their real knowledge about the children they advertise as "missing". Mr. Allen's recommendation to modify the federal definition of ‘missing child’ is self-serving and does nothing for the little victims of missing child fraud.

In the 2016 Democratic National Committee email leaks published by WikiLeaks, emails from Elizabeth Bagley were discovered revealing her involvement in manipulating donor status to gain access to influential people. Curiously enough, Bagley was also the Ambassador of Portugal at the time of the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. Bagley was also a close friend of Hillary Clinton at this time.

Connection to the Podesta Group

John and Tony Podesta

Franz Humer, Chairman of Diageo and Roche and member of the board for ICMEC, paid the Podesta Group millions of dollars for over 10 years between 1998 and 2010.(3)

Mike Denoma, Director for ICMEC, paid the Podesta Group over $1 million dollars between 2011 and 2015. Göran Ando, also a Director for ICMEC, paid the Podesta Group $1,780,000 between 2004 and 2012.(4)

In addition, corporate sponsors of ICMEC also paid over $34 million to the Podesta Group for lobbying.

I have mentioned in a previous Steemit article that the Podesta Group has a notorious history of fighting against human rights.

Connection to David Brock and Hillary Clinton

Correct the Record paid Jeff Koons, previously mentioned child molester and board member for ICMEC, $50,000 in June of 2016 according to their SEC filing, seen here on page 9. Correct the Record, as we know, was an army of paid trolls founded by David Brock which worked on behalf of the Clinton Presidential Campaign in 2016.

Connection to Palantir

Alexander Karp, co-founder of Palantir alongside Peter Thiel, has also worked closely with NCMEC and Palantir is even used by NCMEC directly.(6)

Karin Knox of Palantir is also on the record as stating:

Take our work with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), which uses Palantir to sift through mountains of data, identifying leads to help find missing children in the moments that matter, bust child porn rings and solve cold cases.

Sounds like progress, right? NCMEC themselves claims to have assisted in the recovery of more than 208,000 children.  That, however, has been over the course of 32 years...

Conclusions and the real effectiveness of ICMEC/NCMEC

According to NCMEC, in 2016 alone they assisted more than 20,500 cases of missing children, 90% of which were "endangered runaways". Only 4% of those cases were non-family abductions, lost, or "critically missing". For all their resources, NCMEC investigated only 820 such cases.

Contrast this with the statistics of the National Human Trafficking Hotline where in 2016 alone 7,572 cases of human trafficking were reported which were mostly cases of sex trafficking and about a third of which were children.(8) In reality, this gives us about 2,271 children who were reported to have been exploited in 2016 alone.

Furthermore, contrast these statistics with an ABC report NCMEC themselves stated that "roughly 800,000 children are reported missing each year in the United States."(9)

Lastly, compare all these to a report published in 2001 by the University of Pennsylvania titled Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children in the U.S., Canada and Mexico which describes that as many as 1.8 million children are at risk of commercial sexual exploitation.(10) The shocking data tables can be seen below and even conservatively dwarf any efforts by the NCMEC.

In addition to the scandal surrounding Ernie Allen, it would seem that ICMEC/NCMEC has an agenda for downplaying the reality of the number of missing and exploited children around the world. Notable researchers like William Craddick have long ago pointed out that NCMEC is likely an organization who's motives should be put into question. The information presented here, however, and taken in its totality, leaves little margin for error in this judgement. After all,

You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.
