The story of an American journalist who has been held in the United Kingdom for the last five months while police investigate his Facebook post, gained traction after a video surfaced online on Feb. 1.
The video shows Ryan Dawson, a geopolitical analyst and activist and interviewing Rupert Quaintance, a political comedian, journalist and radio host at American Freedom Radio. Dawson began the interview by saying, “This is a pretty crazy story.”
It commenced at the beginning of 2015 when a video appeared online of two children claiming to be the victims of sexual abuse at the hands of their father Ricky and several of their teachers, among other local people. The abuse is alleged to have taken place in Hampstead, commonly known as Hampstead Village, in London.
The children also alleged that they had been forced into participating in satanic rituals at the local Hampstead Parish Church during which, they claimed, babies were decapitated.
Videos of the children describing the alleged abuse were viewed online at least 4 million times, according to BBC Radio 4. The story had gone viral and the allegations were picked up by the national news.

A witch hunt sprung up, targeting nearly everyone alleged to have been involved. The names, addresses and telephone numbers of the alleged abusers and their families as well as 20 other children and their parents, social workers, clergymen, judges and churchgoers, were released online and some received threats, the BBC reported.
The local people of Hamstead and the people at the Church were not happy about all the harassment and negative press.
A short police investigation followed and in March 2015, a family court judge dismissed the claims that Ricky had led a “satanic cult” in north London and that he and other members carried out the abuse as “baseless”. The judge concluded that the children had been forced to make the allegations by their mother, Ella and her new partner, Abe.
The children’s father did an exclusive interview with the BBC. No charges were ever brought against him.
The case was now over but several local activists were not happy with the judgment and for four weeks protested outside the church. Shouts of “stop killing babies!” and “child killer!” could be heard outside the church. Sabine McNeill, one of the activists, went on the run but continued to promote the protest on her website.
Some of the activists were given restraining orders including McNeill and Belinda Makensy.
Quaintance heard about the allegations, decided to investigate and got in contact with the activists. He announced his plans online and was met with a barrage of threats and abuse from anonymous trolls. His home address was put online and his mother received online harassment.
Quaintance travelled to the UK in August 2016. After he arrived, he met with some of the activists and interviewed them. None of the interviews turned up any additional evidence. At this point, the online trolls were in a frenzy and threatened to kill Quaintance if he went to the church to investigate.
Quaintance’s UK address was put online by the anonymous trolls after they managed to identify his location when they recognized the background in a YouTube video he’d put online.
On Aug. 31, Quaintance went to the church and filmed himself looking around outside. He found nothing out of the ordinary; the case was already dead. [the case is still very much alive, and noone is going to find anything of significance outside a church, in public, in broad daylight...ed.] He posted these stills on Facebook five days later, on Sept. 5.
An anonymous troll jumped on this exchange with a friend, Clay Caricofe, took a screenshot and reported to the police that Quaintance was in the area right then, on the same day the local children’s school term started, and might be carrying a knife.
However, he said he wasn’t outside the church on Sept. 5, or carrying a knife. He was at home.
Rupert’s friend explained to the police that the post refers to an inside joke between Quaintance and himself that referred to an incident involving a sandwich.
“We were at a restaurant after a concert, and I was boasting to another friend how athletic and accurate my throwing arm is and I was asked to prove it. So I took a ham biscuit wrapped in plastic wrap, balled it up and threw it at Rupert across the restaurant and, since my accuracy is excellent, hit Rupert in the back of the head approximately 40 to 50 feet away. I must say, everyone was fairly impressed. Even Rupert. We have been friends for a long time.”In the interview, Quaintance explains that in hip hop music slang, a biscuit refers to a gun. He didn’t want people to think he was carrying a gun.
In the UK, a biscuit is a cookie.
The UK police and court system are now using UK taxpayers’ money to investigate this sandwich-related Facebook post.
On Sept. 13, Rupert was getting ready to leave when there was a knock at the door. It was the police and they arrested him for five charges of harassment with the intent of violence (the sandwich conversation) and two more charges of just harassment. His laptop that he uses to make a living was confiscated, along with his passport. If found guilty, he could face 5 years in prison.
He has no idea who he is being accused of threatening.
Quaintance has been to court twice and both times he has been harassed, face to face, by strangers who have been waiting there for him. The first time by a man who said he was going to hurt Quaintance after the hearing. The second time by a woman. Quaintance told the woman, “I don’t know who you are.” She smiled at him and said, “You’re about to find out.”
Quaintance maintains, “The simple fact of the matter is I didn’t threaten anyone.”
He is still waiting to enter a plea of guilty or not guilty. The case has been adjourned twice. He is unable to work and is under a gag order. Quaintance desperately needs donations, although he has not asked for any. He said he’d rather people share his story and raise awareness anyway they can.

What is really striking about the Hampstead case is the sheer amount of online material it generated, reminiscent of “PizzaGate.” It made the story easy to research. There are many YouTube videos, news articles and interviews and there is even a troll blog that is still reporting with undeniable delight on Rupert’s every move and continuing distress.
WRC will stay in contact with Rupert and will work to keep you up-to-date with the story as it unfurls.
Some background to all this: around 2014, 2 children told their mother, Ella, and others about horrific satanic rituals they were forced to partake in. Horrified at what she had heard, Ella then set about trying to get something done about the seriously awful things she was told about, aided by her partner. A few months later, both ending up having to flee the country after their 2 children were taken from them by UK authorities, and a legal case began in earnest around the allegations of satanic ritual abuse involving many children and adults. Completely unjust court hearings took place, which resolved nothing, which dismissed the entire ritual abuse as told by the 2 children to their mother, and others. All was effectively covered up, the judge at the hearing stating: "“I am able to state with complete conviction that none of the allegations are true. I am entirely certain that everything Ms D [that is the mother], her partner AC and the children said about those matters was fabricated. The claims are baseless. Those who have sought to perpetuate them are evil and/or foolish". So, nothing has been resolved, and the 2 children are still away from their rightful guardians, and home - see the children's mother's "witness video" below. which explains more, in detail: "Mother Ella Draper Witness Statement
21 March 2015".
There is much more to report also, eg. with supporters of this case still being seriously harassed by authorities to this day, eg. with court hearings having taken place which resembled little to do with actual justice, similar to the original hearings which took place regarding the case proper, where everything was simply dismissed out of hand. The coverup continues.
HAMPSTEAD SRA UPDATE 29 FEB. + LEAKED MEDICAL REPORT + ELLA WITNESS INTERVIEWS including ALFRED WEBRE + IPCC REPORT
“Whilst Americans and some Europeans deal with the challenges faced by survivors and the families of Ritual Abuse and Trauma Based Mind Control.
The U.K. and other European Governments engaged in Mind Control programs (involving the ritual sacrifice of countless infants) of their citizens,and children within schools and churches persist in denial. The HAMPSTEAD COVER UP is their Black Swan. The captured lame stream media keep the public sedated, distracted and deceived.
The State and their minions have been caught red handed covering up a case of State sponsored mind control program involving Satanic Ritual Abuse. All the guilty concerned are attempting to ignore the problem whilst hoping that it will eventually go away, yet like a cancerous cyst the problem grows daily with the story now reaching a critical mass of concerned citizens world wide. The lost souls have embarked on yet another offensive, due to the increasing public awareness of the case, particularly by Americans who have their own documented history of SRA/TBMC, The Franklin Cover up, The McMartin Pre School scandal etc. Numerous blogs/websites with information from psychotherapists and survivors who far from remaining in denial, are organising regular conferences where they exchange research information regarding solutions and ways to help survivors and their families. The Sun yesterday put out a 3 page hit piece on SRA siting the Hampstead Cover up and a young Nurse named Carol Felstead ?
Regarding the DA Notice. Ella has been in contact with a researcher from Australia who shared that information with us, and apart from the usual suspects’ smear campaign reflecting Pauffley’s fraudulent judgement in March last year this is the first lame stream media coverage of the case in the Sun yesterday. The site the False Memory Syndrome disinfo.
Regarding the False Memory Syndrome Foundation, Columbia Journalism Review stated:
“Rarely has such a strange and little-understood organization had such a profound effect on media coverage of such a controversial matter. The [False Memory Syndrome] foundation is an aggressive, well-financed PR machine adept at manipulating the press, harassing its critics, and mobilizing a diverse army of psychiatrists, outspoken academics, expert defense witnesses, litigious lawyers, Freud bashers, critics of psychotherapy, and devastated parents.”493
The FMSF has repeatedly cited a study presented at a Harvard conference where researchers were repeatedly able to implant the false memory of mundane tasks like grocery shopping, into their subjects using techniques such as hypnosis.494 It has been championed as proof that memories are easily manipulated. However, research has shown that memories of abuse function very differently than average memories.
“However, leading memory researchers such as Dr. Bessel van der Kolk of Harvard Medical School maintain that traumatic memories, which typically are engraved in the sensorimotor processes, are not subject to the same kinds of contamination that can affect normal memory. Traumatic amnesia, described in the DSM-III-R as psychogenic amnesia, is a phenomenon which has been known to mental health professionals for more than 100 years. The clinically observed characteristics of traumatic memory formation and retrieval match precisely the patterns of memory recovery exhibited by SRA [Satanic Ritual Abuse] survivors, and strongly confirm the reality of their cult abuse.”495
Denial serves no one. Neither victims nor perpetrators.
This is not a war. This is an awakening.
