“What you have to understand, John, is that sometimes there are forces and events too big, too powerful, with so much at stake for other people or institutions, that you cannot do anything about them, no matter how evil or wrong they are and no matter how dedicated or sincere you are or how much evidence you have. This is simply one of the hard facts of life you have to face."
-Former CIA director and Cercle member (William) Bill Colby giving advice to his friend senator John DeCamp, urging to quit his investigations into the Franklin child abuse affair and to write a book about his experiences (The Franklin Coverup, 2nd edition, foreword).

In the 1980s, banker/politician Lawrence King used the Omaha, Nebraska Franklin Credit Union as a cover for many criminal activities, including child trafficking and pimping to elite clients in Washington D.C.. Children were prostituted at parties hosted by gay-pimp Republican lobbyist Craig Spence. The credit union failed due to King’s embezzlement and a NB State Senate investigation turned up massive evidence of large-scale child abuse, but the FBI shut down the investigation and two sham grand juries attacked the accusers. Several witnesses and an investigator were murdered or died mysteriously. Former CIA Director Bill Colby went on record stating the case had merit before dying in a “canoe accident”.
