APS President & Bond Uni Psychology Professor Raped 3 Boys?
This week, high profile psychologist Robert ‘Bob’ Montgomery was charged with sexually assaulting / anally raping three 12-year-old boys in the 1960’s. The pedophile-enabling ABC lied by omission about the perpetrator’s phenomenal status within Australian psychology. They mainly portrayed Bob Montgomery as a scout leader, and this is the initial impression left in the minds of the Australian public. Perhaps this had to do with the fact that Bob Montgomery was one of the ABC’s expert consultants.
Bob Montgomery is in fact one of Australia’s most high profile, influential psychologists. He was President of the APS (Australian Psychological Society) from 2009 to 2010. The APS describe themselves as follows:
We are the peak body for psychologists in Australia and represent over 24,000 members. We advocate for the profession of psychology, support high standards, promote community well-being, and are dedicated to providing benefits to support members.
Montgomery established psychology courses at three universities: Bond, Canberra, and Sunshine Coast, and was Head of Psychology at all three. But the ABC didn’t mention any of that relevant material. All they said was Bob Montgomery was the consultant psychologist on the Big Brother TV show, and that he wrote 13 books: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-01-30/scoutmaster-extradited-from-qld-over-child-sex-allegations/10763872.
In fact, no one in the media is pointing to the elephant – that Bob Montgomery and Paul Wilson worked together at Bond University. Paul Wilson was the Head of the Humanities Department at Bond, a Psychology Professor, and Head of Criminology. Paul Wilson published articles on the Bond University website saying kids are not harmed by being raped as kids, and that they are in fact willing participants in pedophile rape. Not one Bond University lecturer objected to the publication of these papers. Bond only pulled the articles down after Paul Wilson was charged for pedophilia, and the Gold Coast Bulletin published excerpts from those articles. Paul Wilson was imprisoned in 2016 for raping young girls, and has a long line of other victims keen to testify against him. Oh, and like Bob Montgomery, Paul Wilson regularly appeared on ABC radio as an expert commentator.
These two arrests of high profile Bond psychologists validates what I said about Bond University being a pedophile institution. One pedophile is bad enough – but two at the same place at the same time indicates a pedophile ring. I accused Bond University of being a pedophile institution long before Paul Wilson and Bob Montgomery were arrested. Fellow student Luciana Cruz and I reported the university to the APS, the Australian Psychology Board – everyone about my having been targeted for adhering to mandatory reporting legislation. I reported that a Bond Psychology Clinic child client made allegations of child sex trafficking by Gold Coast DOCS. The APS and Psychology Board supported the pedophiles, and Luciana and I were thrown out of the psychology industry.

Ironically, Luciana Cruz turned to Bob Montgomery for support with our case. She gave me recordings of her meetings with Bob. In these recordings, Bob Montgomery blasts and exposes Bond University’s criminality. I wonder if this is why the pedophile network cut him loose and permitted his arrest. See below for a transcript of the salient points from these recordings.
The arrest of Bob Montgomery also validates the link drawn years ago between Australian psychologists, APS Presidents, MK-ULTRA, and organised pedophilia (see articles published on this website). Bob Montgomery perpetrated unethical MK-ULTRA research at LaTrobe University, Melbourne, during the early 1970’s. The experiments left young subjects permanently psychologically damaged. See this article for more information: https://www.theage.com.au/national/victoria/la-trobe-torture-study-anguish-20120425-1xlmf.html
Incidentally, LaTrobe is the home of lecturer Gary Dowsett, who wrote an article entitled, ‘Boiled Lollies and Bandaids: Gay men and Kids,’ in Gay Information Quarterly Journal (Spring 1982) in which he stated the following:
And a new political position is needed… First we have three legal/social questions to win: custody rights for gay men and lesbians; the legal right of pedophiles and their young lovers; and finally the sexual rights of children as a whole…. How different then is that gentle, tentative sexuality between parent and child from the love of a pedophile and his/her lover?”
Until recently the link to this article appeared on his La Trobe University resume page. This article is reminiscent of Paul Wilson’s pro-pedophile 1980’s book subtitled, ‘Sexual Experiences Between men and Boys.’
Now 75 years old, Bob Montgomery was also a contemporary of my pedophile rapist and MK-ULTRA perpetrator Antony Kidman. The timing of Montgomery’s MK-ULTRA experiments (1972 -3) coincides with Kidman’s CIA-funded Learned Helplessness research that he conducted under the guidance of MK-ULTRA perpetrator Seligman. During the 1970’s, Bob Montgomery was also a visiting professor at the Universities of Hawaii and Oregon, which were MK-ULTRA research hubs. Antony Kidman undertook a PhD in biochemistry at the University of Hawaii. Nicole Kidman was born in Hawaii and spent the first four years there.
Kidman and Montgomery both pushed CBT and Health Psychology. ‘Health Psychology’ was invented by Joseph Matarazzo, the designer of the 2001 torture program – Seligman was 2nd in charge. To illustrate:
Antony Kidman was another regular on ABC, including a program called ‘Life Matters’: https://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/lifematters/dr-antony-kidman/3285394
Antony Kidman, Bob Montogmery, and Paul Wilson were three very high profile Australian psychologists, university lecturers, and ABC media ho’s who used their positions to promote the ideas behind the false memory movement, and to mislead trainee psychologists and the general public concerning the truth about organized pedophilia and the presence of unethical MK-ULTRA research in Australia. Not surprising if all three liked to rape young children.
Recordings of Dr Bob Montgomery – Transcript
CD1. 00:22. [These recordings are made] to share it with a spouse, or a parent, or someone else…
39:26. The University’s reputation is well known.
48:45. It is one of the worst run Universities I’ve ever seen. It’s dishonest. It’s been dishonest all the time I’ve known it… As president of the APS, I would have oversight of accreditation programs and I always made it clear because of my history with Bond University that I don’t want to be in any way directly involved because someone could turn around and say, ‘Oh look, he’s only being tough with Bond University because…’ So, at arm’s length, absolute arms length, I advised the accreditation group, people who went to Bond University to accredit the whole of the Department and all its courses and clinical course, “Watch them. They will lie. They will try to pretend that things are better than they are.” And that’s exactly what they found. So, Bond initially, in the last round of accreditations, did not get accreditation… Bond will lie, try to lie their way out of anything. APAC’s totally incorruptible, believe me, and Nick Voudourius is as straight as you get. If anything, he’s straighter than straight. He just wouldn’t be budged by that, and he is not fooled by any of their tricks. So it wasn’t actually Nicholas. It was my co-name Ian Montgomery who was leading the accreditation process at Bond and he’s been doing this for years. He knows more about courses in Australia than any other three people. And I just said to Ian, “Look, watch them – they’ll lie.” When I was there as Head, and we had the accreditation coming, the then manager took me around and pointed at rooms and said, “Look, we could put ‘laboratory’ on the door here.” ‘But it isn’t,’ I said, ‘You’re asking me to lie to the APS. Well, I won’t do that.’ Which is in the end why I left: because they were still trying to lie to the APS about shonky procedures they were going through. So, you don’t have to convince me how terrible Bond University is.
52:38. Don’t pin your hopes to people outside (of Bond University) understanding at all what it’s like and therefore giving you much sympathy or support.
CD2. 14:27. The rot starts at the top. That’s where the rot was at Bond when I was there – the Vice-Chancellor. And then it trickles down through the organisation. And they encourage or permit really unacceptable activities. And it’s only when you take that person out, things start to improve.
30:25. I actually have several psychologists in therapy at the moment… One of these had surrendered her registration, lost her job, was about to lose her home because she had no money and she’s a single mum, couldn’t pay the mortgage by the time she comes in. She did breach the Code of Ethics, but I said to her, ‘Look, that’s a parking ticket. It was so minor, it’s a parking ticket. Part of her problem is she’s so harsh on herself that she blows it out of proportion, so she voluntarily surrenders her registration. Within one month, she’s rejoined the APS, reapplied for her registration, has a job, will not lose her home, and her DASS scores are down here. And now what we’re doing is working on the vulnerability that caused her to transgress ethically in the first place, because she did! Minor, but she did, and then she should know better, and not do it again. My assumption is that in the end the PBA will give her a smack over the hand and say, ‘We hope you’ve learned from all this, because I’ve also written her report which she sent to the PBA, saying, “I’m encouraging her to sue her employer Corrective Services, for failure of duty of care. She’s a four-plus-two [i.e., 4 yrs uni + 2 internship], she’s young, she’s attractive, and you send her in with hardcore criminals? Come on. And the criminal with whom she is supposed to have transgressed has previously got a woman psychologist from Corrections sacked. Come on fellas! How big does the elephant have to be before you notice that it’s there?” The point I’m trying to make is, her situation has turned around radically, and I’ve encouraged her to complaint to the Privacy Commission because Corrections have released information to the PBA that I’m sure was illegal and unethical. I’ve chided the PBA, “While you’re accepting material which I think is of dubious ethical basis.” I’m waiting to hear their reply. This will sound self-serving: the difference is she’s got me on her side.
[Note: We studied this case in ethics at Bond, and I know from the legal documents that the psychologist had sex with the offender. If this breach of ethics is considered ‘minor’ and akin to ‘a parking ticket,’ and the woman has been reinstated, then how is it that the PBA can come down so hard on me and threaten to take action against me for false allegations of professional misconduct such as my giving my thesis paper to a peer, or obey my supervisor and check a client file? How does it compare?]
33:29. I was Head of Psychology at Bond University for 10 years. I know the place inside and out and back to front. I know exactly where the dirty linen is buried. I’ve just stepped down from two years as President of the APS… Nikola Roxon sent me a Christmas card: ‘Dear Fred, have a good Christmas.’ So (a) I’ve got the expert knowledge, (b) the standing…
34:08. You wanna come out of this saying, ‘I screwed those bastards right back to the wall where they belong.’
35. Bond University will do all the scullduggerous things they can to deny any mispractice. While I was there they had a lunatic professor of psychology. He was so bad he went off and formed his own counselling unit. He was caught screwing his secretary on the desk. The outcome was he sacked the secretary, and the vice-chancellor backed him up. Now when I finally left I know for a fact three students in the Counselling Masters were suing the University because he had promised this counselling masters degree would get all this recognition, and it got none. Now that’s the sort of shenanigans that Bond University gets up to and then tries to bully, lie, cheat its way out of doing the wrong thing.
CD3. 8:25. When I first became Head of Psychology (the first professor of psychology at Bond University), one of the reasons they hired me was the University was being sued by three families of kids who had done the undergraduate degree. The University had promised them, ‘Oh, yes this course will be accredited.’ It was the most rubbish course I have ever seen, it had as much chance of being accredited as I have of being elected the next pope. It was terrible! And my first task, and they made it clear, my first task was redesign the psychology undergrad course so that it gets accredited – did that in six months: world record – and deal with these three families so that they stop suing the university. So their children, the students, were offered free entry to all the new subjects that they now had to pick up so that they put together the accredited course. Two families took that, the third family took money and ran…They took compensation from the university and went away. Since then they’ve had a repeat performance with their so-called Masters of Counselling, where again they got themselves into strife by promising Masters in Counselling students, ‘This degree will be recognised left, right and centre.’ It was being run by a psychopath, and it was appallingly bad. So, as far as I know, several of those are still suing the university. So, your treatment is typical of how they try and bluff and bully their way out.
13:26. If you want to go down the path of taking the university to court, mind you they’ll do everything they can to avoid going to court, and at the last minute they’re quite likely to collapse and give you what you want. That’s how most of these bullies do it… As you’re walking up the steps to go into court, they’ll suddenly make you a reasonable offer. As long as they think they can bluff you out, they’ll try to bluff you out.
31:35. There is zero probability of Mark [the Student Counselor] lying on behalf of the university. Absolutely none. I’d stake my life on the Mark. I know him inside out, back to front. I know his wife, his family. Mark is as straight as a die… They’re [The University staff] incompetent. The message [email threat] he [personal assistant] has sent to you is staggeringly incompetent because it’s so easy to show it’s wrong. Now this is really dumb… And I would bet my bottom dollar, as soon as the university’s lawyer sees what he’s sent, he’ll say, ‘Why did you do this? Please don’t send any more emails until we’ve vetted them!’ Now, they’ll be running round like headless chooks, and they’re hoping that you will get weak at the knees and buckle. Okay, now that’s what you can count on, more stress, more dirty tricks… And zero chance that they’ll carry through with what they’re saying there, because you’ve got an honest person as a witness. The Pro-Vice Chancellor: I wouldn’t trust as far as I could throw. He’s thrown in his lot with the university decades ago, and he’ll go down with the sinking ship. The Student Counsellor: totally different kettle of fish. The Student Counsellor’s as straight as a die, and they’ve got him there, they know he’s there, they know he’s like that, and they know he won’t back them up. So, they’ll be running around like headless chooks. So, you might have a realistic concern if you enroll for an externship that they may try to manipulate the situation in some way to try and put you in a bad light. And you’ve got to put that in your decision-making mix… If you decide to plough ahead with [The University] you will be dealing with people who are out to get you, nasty, willing to do dishonest things, and getting increasingly desperate because not only have they not knocked you down, but you’re coming back even stronger.
