Ghislaine Maxwell[1] (born 25 December 1961) is the youngest child of publishing tycoon and fraudster Robert Maxwell, who was connected to Mossad and ended his life with suiside in  November 1991. That was the month her father, publishing and media mogul Robert Maxwell, tumbled over the side of a yacht he had named after her, the Lady Ghislaine (pronounced "ghee-lane").

Ghislaine, reportedly, never believed her father took his own life. Several authors, like the author Martin Dillon, theorized that Maxwell was murdered, suggesting he may have been an asset for the Israeli intelligence service. An inquest later found that Maxwell died from a heart attack and drowning. As owner of the Daily Mirror, Maxwell  had been Rupert Murdoch’s chief rival in the British tabloid market. But his finances had been extended past their breaking point, and after Maxwell’s death, it emerged that he  have unlawfully raided the Mirror’s employee pension fund in an unsuccessful attempt to keep his empire from collapsing.

Ghislaine moved to the United States after her father's death in 1991 and became a close associate of financier and subsequently convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.  Much like Epstein, her social circle also encompassed Britain’s Prince Andrew, and the Clinton family—she even attended Chelsea Clinton’s 2010 wedding (Who is Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein's Alleged Madam):

“But the thing is, to hang around those billionaire guys, you either have to be sleeping with them or you’re finding them girls. There is no in-between when you’re in that crowd,” said the friend, referring not to Ghislaine individually but the dark habits and rituals common at the highest echelons of power.

“The other thing you can do is get them into parties. It’s the private jet equivalent of grass, gas or ass,” the source added, riffing on the ‘70s maxim of how hitchhikers could compensate drivers for their ride.

... ... ...

...accusations against her are more than just media speculation; she has also been called out in several civil suits. In 2015, one Epstein victim, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, alleged Ghislaine Maxwell acted as a "madame" for Epstein and his wealthy cohort; Maxwell denied the accusation then. In the ongoing defamation litigation between Giuffre and Epstein lawyer Alan Dershowitz, two additional Epstein accusers, Sarah Ransone and Maria Farmer, single out Maxwell in their sworn affidavits, with Ransone alleging Maxwell "recruited" young women to fly to Epstein's private estate in the Virgin Islands.

"Once they were there, [Ghislaine] appeared to be in charge of their activities, including what they did, who they did it with, and how they were supposed to stay in line," Ransone said
 

Her role in running Epstein brothel with underage girls now is open to scrutiny (Where Is Ghislaine Maxwell Now, Amidst Jeffrey Epstein Allegations):

They hypothesized that a woman who had grown up in luxury might have been motivated by money pressures to abet Epstein, in return for living at the billionaire’s elbow. Maxwell played a complex role in the financier's life, overseeing his staff, handling household finances, organizing his parties, and hiring masseuses.
 

"There’s no way she would be doing any of this for free. People do this because they want their lifestyle paid for,” speculated one acquaintance.

... ... ...

Among the newly-public bombshells are Giuffre’s allegation that Maxwell instructed her to have sex with prominent figures, including former New Mexico governor and presidential candidate Bill Richardson. A spokesperson for Richardson office Friday called the claim “completely false,” and denied he ever met Giuffre.

... ... ..

The unsealed documents also contain records for Epstein’s online purchase of books with recherché titles like SlaveCraft: Roadmaps for Erotic Servitude, Training with Miss Abernathy: A Workbook for Erotic Slaves and Their Owners, and SM 101: A Realistic Introduction.

Probably was financed by Epstein via Wexner all the time she was residing in the USA.  So far no changed were files against her and her whereabouts after Epstein arrest are not known. Theoretically, it should have been a top priority to arrest Ghislaine Maxwell after Epstein death, but the government, justice and media lack interest . Apparently, they don’t know where she is, and they’re not making any special efforts to find out.

Maxwell's ocean-advocacy group The TerraMar Project, closed on July 12, 2019, a week after the sex trafficking charges brought by New York federal prosecutors against Jeffrey Epstein became public.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Born December 25, 1961 (age 57) Maisons-Laffitte, France

Residence

Citizenship

Education

Ghislaine Maxwell was born in 1961, in Maisons-Laffitte, France,[5] the ninth and youngest child of Elisabeth (née Meynard), a French-born scholar, and Robert Maxwell, a Czech-born British media proprietor. Her father was from a Jewish family and her mother was of Huguenot descent. Maxwell was born days after a car accident left her older brother Michael in a prolonged coma at age 15, unresponsive until his death in 1967.[6] Throughout childhood, Ghislaine resided with her family in Oxford at Headington Hill Hall, a 53-room mansion, where the offices to Robert Maxwell's Pergamon Press were also located.[5][7][3] Maxwell attended Headington School, Marlborough College, and Oxford University's Balliol College.[2]

Maxwell had an unusually close relationship with her father and was widely credited with being her father's favorite child.[3][8][9] The Times reported that Robert Maxwell did not permit Ghislaine to bring her boyfriends home or to be seen with them publicly, starting from the time she was attending Balliol College at Oxford.[10]

Career

Maxwell was a prominent member of the London social scene in the 1980s.[11] She founded a successful women's club named after the original Kit-Cat Club[12][9] and was a director of Oxford United Football Club, during her father's ownership.[13][14] She also worked at The European, a former publication that Robert Maxwell had started.[15] According to Tom Bower of The Times, in 1986 Ghislaine’s father invited her to visit his new yacht in a shipyard in Holland to celebrate its christening in her honor as the Lady Ghislaine.[6] The Scotsman stated that Robert Maxwell had also "tailor made a New York company for her".[16] The company, which focused on corporate gifts, was not profitable.[10][6]

The Times reported that Maxwell flew to New York on November 5, 1990 to deliver an envelope on behalf of Robert Maxwell that, unknown to her, was part of “a plot initiated by her father to steal $200m” from Berlitz shareholders.[6]

After her father purchased the New York Daily News in January of 1991, Maxwell was sent to New York City to "be the advance guard for his foray in New York society".[17] In May 1991, Maxwell and her father flew to New York together on business by Concorde.[10]

In November of 1991, Robert Maxwell’s body was found floating in the sea near the Canary Islands and his luxury yacht the Lady Ghislaine.[18] Immediately following his death, Ghislaine flew to Tenerife, where the yacht was stationed, to attend to his business paperwork.[10] Though a verdict of death by accidental drowning was recorded, Maxwell has since stated that she believes her father was murdered,[19] commenting in 1997 that "He did not commit suicide. That was just not consistent with his character. I think he was murdered."[20] After his death, Robert Maxwell was found to have fraudulently appropriated the pension assets of his Mirror Group Newspapers to support its share price and was disgraced.[21] There were reportedly over £440m in pension funds missing, which left the surviving Maxwell family members and the British government in a bind to repay the 32,000 people affected.[22]

Ghislaine Maxwell moved to the United States in 1991, just after her father's death. Maxwell was photographed boarding the Concorde luxury aircraft to cross the Atlantic causing outrage amidst the pension scandal.[8][9] In 1992, she had moved to an apartment of an Iranian friend overlooking Central Park. At the time, she worked at a real estate office on Madison Avenue. She was reported to be socializing with a crowd that included Ivana Trump and Adnan Khashoggi's son.[23] Maxwell quickly rose to wider prominence as a New York City socialite [9][24]

Association with Jeffrey Epstein

Maxwell first met American financier Jeffrey Epstein in the early 1990s at a New York party following "a difficult break-up with Count Gianfranco Cicogna" of the Ciga Hotels clan.[25]

Maxwell had a romantic relationship with Jeffrey Epstein for several years in the early 1990s and remained closely associated with him for decades afterward.[9][24][26] The nature of their relationship remains unclear. In a 2009 deposition, several of Epstein’s household employees testified that Maxwell had a central role in both his public and private life, referring to her as his “main girlfriend” who also handled the hiring, supervising, and firing of staff starting around 1992.[27] She has also been referred to as the "Lady of the House" by Epstein's staff and as his "aggressive assistant".[28] In a 2003 Vanity Fair profile on Epstein, author Vicky Ward stated that Epstein referred to Maxwell as “my best friend”. [29] Ward also observed that Maxwell seemed "to organize much of his life".[29]

Maxwell has attracted press coverage for her friendship with Prince Andrew, Duke of York, the second son of Queen Elizabeth II, who attended social functions with her in New York.[30] Maxwell introduced Epstein to Prince Andrew, and the three often socialized together.[31] In 2000, Maxwell and Epstein attended a party thrown by Prince Andrew at the queen's estate in Norfolk, England for Maxwell's 39th birthday.[32] Maxwell has also been associated and photographed with Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, and lawyer Alan Dershowitz.[24]

In 1995, Epstein renamed one of his companies the Ghislaine Corporation; the Palm Beach, Florida company was later dissolved, in 1998.[27]

In 2008, Epstein was convicted of soliciting a minor for prostitution and served 13 months of an 18-month jail sentence. Following Epstein's release from jail, although Maxwell continued to attend prominent social functions, she and Epstein were no longer seen together publicly.[3]

By late 2015, Maxwell had largely retreated from attending social functions.[3]

Civil cases

Virginia Roberts v. Maxwell (2015)

Details of a civil lawsuit, made public in January 2015, contained a deposition from a woman, identified as 'Jane Doe 3", that accused Ghislaine Maxwell of having recruited her in 1999, when she was a minor, to have sex with Epstein.[9] A 2018 exposé by Julie K. Brown the Miami Herald revealed Jane Doe 3 to be Virginia Giuffre, who in 1999 was known as Virginia Roberts. Giuffre met Maxwell at Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida, where Giuffre was working at the time.[9] She asserted that Maxwell had introduced her to Epstein, after which she was "groomed by the two [of them] for his pleasure, including lessons in Epstein's preferences during oral sex".[33][9]

Maxwell has repeatedly denied any involvement in Epstein's crimes.[26] In a 2015 statement, Maxwell rejected allegations that she has acted as a procurer for Epstein and denied that she had "facilitated Prince Andrew's acts of sexual abuse". Maxwell's spokesperson said that "the allegations made against Ghislaine Maxwell are untrue" and that she "strongly denies allegations of an unsavory nature, which have appeared in the British press and elsewhere, and reserves her right to seek redress at the repetition of such old defamatory claims".[31][34]

Giuffre sued Maxwell in federal court in the Southern District of New York in 2015. She asserted that Maxwell and Epstein had trafficked her and other underage girls, often at sex parties, hosted by Epstein at his homes in New York, New Mexico, Palm Beach, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Maxwell called her a liar. Giuffre sued Maxwell for defamation. While details of the settlement have not been made public,[35] the case was settled in Giuffre's favor, with Maxwell paying Giuffre "millions".[36]

The New York Times asserted that, by 2016, Maxwell was no longer being photographed at events. In April 2016, the New York town house where she had lived was sold for $15 million. By 2017, her lawyers claimed before a judge that they did not know her address; they further claimed that she was in London but that they did not believe she had a permanent residence.[3]

Sarah Ransome v. Epstein and Maxwell (2017)

In 2017, Sarah Ransome filed a suit against Epstein and Maxwell, alleging that Maxwell hired her to give massages to Epstein and later threatened to physically harm her or destroy her career prospects if she did not comply with their sexual demands at his mansion in New York and on his private Caribbean island, Little Saint James. The suit was settled in 2018 under undisclosed terms.[37][3][24][38][39]

Maria Farmer v. Epstein and Maxwell (2019)

On April 16, 2019, a new accuser, Maria Farmer, went public and filed a sworn affidavit in federal court in New York, alleging that she and her 15-year-old sister had been sexually assaulted by Epstein and Maxwell in separate locations in 1996. According to the affidavit, Farmer had met Maxwell and Epstein at a New York art gallery reception in 1995. The following year, in the summer of 1996, they hired her to work on an art project in billionaire businessman Leslie Wexner's Ohio mansion, where she was then sexually assaulted.[40] Farmer reported the incident to the New York Police Department and the FBI.[27]

Farmer's affidavit also stated that during the same summer, Epstein flew her then-15-year-old sister to his New Mexico property where he and Maxwell molested her on a massage table.[41]

Dispute over release of court documents

On July 2, 2019, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ordered the unsealing of documents from the earlier civil suit against Maxwell by Virginia Giuffre.[42] Jeffrey Epstein was arrested on July 6, 2019 at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey and charged with sex trafficking and sex trafficking conspiracy.[43]

Maxwell requested a rehearing in a federal appeals court on July 17, 2019, in an effort to keep documents sealed that were part of a suit by Virginia Giuffre.[44]

On August 9, 2019 the first batch of documents were unsealed and released from the earlier defamation suit by Giuffre against Maxwell.[45] Epstein was found dead on August 10, 2019, after reportedly hanging himself in his Manhattan prison cell.[46][47]

Personal life

Newsweek stated in a 2015 article that Maxwell had "her father's bombastic charisma".[48] Following her personal and professional involvement with Jeffrey Epstein, Maxwell was romantically linked for several years to Ted Waitt, founder of Gateway computers, until their relationship ended in early 2011.[49][9]

In 2000, Maxwell moved into a 7,000-square-foot townhouse on East 65th Street less than 10 blocks from her friend Epstein's New York mansion. Her townhome was purchased for $4.95 million by an anonymous limited liability company, with an address that matches the office of J. Epstein & Co. Representing the buyer was Darren Indyke, Epstein's longtime lawyer.[3]

Philanthropy

In 2012, Maxwell founded The TerraMar Project,[50] a nonprofit organization that advocated protecting ocean waters. She gave a lecture for TerraMar at the University of Texas at Dallas and a TED talk, at TEDx Charlottesville in 2014.[51] Maxwell accompanied Stuart Beck, a 2013 TerraMar board member, to two United Nations meetings to discuss the project.[49]

The TerraMar Project announced closure on July 12, 2019, less than a week after the charges of sex trafficking, brought by New York federal prosecutors against Maxwell's ex-boyfriend and confidante Jeffrey Epstein, became public.[52][3] An associated, UK-based company, Terramar (UK), continued to exist for some time, with Maxwell as a Director,[53] but in August 2019 its website posted up an announcement that the organization is "going into hibernation."[54]

[Aug 02, 2020] Clinton connection to Epstein was not accidental

In recently unsealed court documents involving dead child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein and his alleged accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell, a woman named Virginia Giuffre, who publicly accused Epstein of sex trafficking, said that she once saw former Democratic President Bill Clinton on Epstein's island with "two young girls" from New York.

In the questioning by lawyer Jack Scarola, Guiffre was asked, "Do you have any recollection of Jeffrey Epstein's specifically telling you that 'Bill Clinton owes me favors?'"

"Yes, I do," Guiffre answered. "It was a laugh though. He would laugh it off. You know, I remember asking Jeffrey what's Bill Clinton doing here [on Epstein's island] kind of thing, and he laughed it off and said well he owes me favors."

Interesting extract from Xymphora's July 31 blog entry...

Tweet (trappedpatriot):

"So they screwed up bigtime on the redactions for the Ghislaine Maxwell release today. You can literally copy and paste the redacted pages into notepad and read them. Check out document #143 for a great example. #Epstein #Maxwell"

The trick works (I'd like to think it is not a mistake but some direct action by a court employee who is tired of all the lies). From document #143 (a deposition of Maxwell where her lawyer instructs her not to answer most, but not all, questions:

I can wait for the Official Version but I'd be interested to hear if any of MoA's resident sleuths have found the copy/paste assertion to be true?

Not holding my breath but my ears are perked.

It looks like they highlighted what was to be redacted in adobe instead of scanning redacted documents manually.

Somebody screwed up? Intentionally? Mistrial for Maxwell?

Looks like Clinton "dicking (underage) blondes." I am shocked!

Trump is looking clean and I would have already guessed it with his foray into the porn industry w/ Stormy Daniels. Whereas with paedophiles, it is about power and domination, when you are into a chick like Daniels, you are staying simple and "keeping your cart wheel in worn ruts." (Tao Te Ching)

Newly unsealed files tied to the Jeffrey Epstein sex-trafficking case imply that former US President Bill Clinton visited the investor's private island along with "young girls," and that the FBI knew well about the minors' abuse.

Comprising hundreds of pages of documents, the trove was released on Thursday night following a judge's order last week to have it unsealed, over the objections of Ghislaine Maxwell, a former girlfriend to Epstein who has recently been charged as an accomplice in his alleged sex-trafficking operation.

ALSO ON RT.COM US judge authorizes release of previously-sealed documents in case of Jeffrey Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell

The records stem from a 2015 defamation suit filed by Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre, which was placed under lock and key after the case was settled in 2017, but was recently unsealed, as a result of a lawsuit brought last year by conservative blogger Mike Cernovich and the Miami Herald newspaper.

Among other revelations, the documents indicate that former US president Bill Clinton consorted with "young girls" during at least one visit to Epstein's private resort in the Virgin Islands, where the billionaire was said to host regular "sex orgies."

"When you were present with Jeffery Epstein and Bill Clinton on the island, who else was there?" one witness – presumably Giuffre – was asked during an interview, to which she replied that Epstein, Maxwell, an unidentified woman named "Emmy" and "2 young girls" had been on the island with the former POTUS. The witness did not elaborate on Clinton's interactions with the girls, however.

The same witness also told her attorney in 2011 that she had overheard Epstein saying that Clinton owed him "favors," but noted she couldn't tell whether he was joking.

"He would laugh it off. You know, I remember asking Jeffrey 'What's Bill Clinton doing here?' and he laughed it off and said 'well he owes me a favor,'" she said. "He never told me what favors they were. I never knew. I didn't know if he was serious."

He told me a long time ago that everyone owes him favors. They're all in each other's pockets.

One of America's top law enforcement agencies was also apparently aware that underage girls were still being abused at Epstein's properties as far back as 2011 – years after he was sentenced for similar crimes in his first criminal case. During her defamation suit, Giuffre said she had provided the FBI a now widely circulated photo of herself and the UK's Prince Andrew – where he is pictured smiling with an arm around her bare waist.

In 2014, moreover, Giuffre contacted the FBI to request evidence they had previously seized from Epstein's residences to aid her civil case, suggesting the bureau had for long been informed of her allegations regarding Epstein and his continued involvement with minor girls.

President Donald Trump also made an appearance in the unsealed papers. However, an associate of Epstein, Juan Alessi, said in an interview that Trump "never" stayed overnight while visiting Epstein's Palm Beach estate, and that he did not receive any "massages" there, as "he's got his own spa." An alleged victim also maintained that while Trump and Epstein were "good friends," Trump made no attempts to "flirt" with her.

Comprising hundreds of pages of documents, the trove was released on Thursday night following a judge's order last week to have it unsealed, over the objections of Ghislaine Maxwell, a former girlfriend to Epstein who has recently been charged as an accomplice in his alleged sex-trafficking operation.

The records stem from a 2015 defamation suit filed by Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre, which was placed under lock and key after the case was settled in 2017, but was recently unsealed, as a result of a lawsuit brought last year by conservative blogger Mike Cernovich and the Miami Herald newspaper.

Among other revelations, the documents indicate that former US president Bill Clinton consorted with "young girls" during at least one visit to Epstein's private resort in the Virgin Islands, where the billionaire was said to host regular "sex orgies."

"When you were present with Jeffery Epstein and Bill Clinton on the island, who else was there?" one witness – presumably Giuffre – was asked during an interview, to which she replied that Epstein, Maxwell, an unidentified woman named "Emmy" and "2 young girls" had been on the island with the former POTUS. The witness did not elaborate on Clinton's interactions with the girls, however.

The same witness also told her attorney in 2011 that she had overheard Epstein saying that Clinton owed him "favors," but noted she couldn't tell whether he was joking.

"He would laugh it off. You know, I remember asking Jeffrey 'What's Bill Clinton doing here?' and he laughed it off and said 'well he owes me a favor,'" she said. "He never told me what favors they were. I never knew. I didn't know if he was serious."

He told me a long time ago that everyone owes him favors. They're all in each other's pockets.

He is also said to have witnessed "the sexual abuse of many other minors by Epstein and several of Epstein's co-conspirators," and would later help to negotiate an undisclosed immunity deal for himself during Epstein's first criminal case.

More than 1,000 pages of documents from Giuffre's civil defamation case had previously been released in August 2019, indicating that a long list of wealthy and powerful figures regularly spent time with Epstein at his lavish properties. One day after that trove was unsealed, Epstein was found hanging in his Manhattan prison cell, dead from an apparent suicide after being charged with sex trafficking and imprisoned some weeks previously.

Maxwell was arrested and charged with procuring minors for sexual abuse earlier this month, after keeping a low profile in the period following Epstein's death. She has pleaded not guilty to six criminal counts and remains in custody without bail, after prosecutors had labeled her an "extreme" flight risk.

Jul 21, 2020 | www.msn.com
(Bloomberg) -- A federal judge is considering making public a trove of previously sealed records from a 2015 lawsuit against Ghislaine Maxwell, who is now facing charges that she trafficked girls as young as 14 for her former boyfriend Jeffrey Epstein.

U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska in New York scheduled a Thursday conference to discuss the possible unsealing of five different sets of documents relating to a defamation lawsuit against Maxwell by Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre, whom Maxwell had said was lying.

The possible release is coming as Maxwell's lawyer are trying to tamp down statements about her criminal case, in which she has pleaded not guilty. On Tuesday, they asked the judge in that case, U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan, to issue a gag order on prosecutors, FBI agents and lawyers for Maxwell and Epstein's alleged victims.

The documents Preska is considering unsealing appear to be partly related to deposition testimony Maxwell, 58, gave in the case in April and July 2016. One of her lawyers said in a recent court filing that one of the documents included "intrusive questioning" about Maxwell's sex life that she had answered based on her expectation of confidentiality.

A federal appeals court in New York unsealed 40 of the 613 pages of Maxwell's testimony last August. Her sworn denials of knowledge about Epstein's abuse of underage girls are the basis for two perjury counts that accompanied the sex-trafficking charges in the indictment unsealed against her on July 2 by Manhattan federal prosecutors.

The record of Giuffre's lawsuit was sealed in 2017 after the parties reached a confidential settlement. The partial unsealing last year followed Epstein's arrest on sex-trafficking charges. He was found dead of an apparent suicide in his Manhattan jail cell on Aug. 10, a day after parts of Maxwell's testimony first became public.

Maxwell's lawyer Laura Menninger didn't immediately return voicemail and email messages seeking comment about the conference.

Menninger in June argued against further unsealing, saying one document pertained to Giuffre's efforts "to compel Ms. Maxwell to answer intrusive questions about her sex life" during her deposition. Menninger said Maxwell answered the questions because she had "a strong expectation of continued confidentiality."

The lawyer also cited the then ongoing criminal investigation of Maxwell, saying any disclosures from the Giuffre lawsuit could "inappropriately influence potential witnesses or alleged victims."

Sigrid McCawley, a lawyer for Giuffre, couldn't be immediately reached for comment about Preska's planned conference.

In the testimony that has been made public, Maxwell acknowledged hiring Giuffre as a 17-year-old massage therapist for Epstein at his Palm Beach estate but denied knowledge of any sexual abuse.

"You can be a professional masseuse at 17 in Florida, so as far as I am aware, a professional masseuse showed up for a massage," Maxwell said. "There is nothing inappropriate or incorrect about that."

Everything you need to know about Scott Borgerson, the tech CEO tied to Jeffrey Epstein's alleged madam, Ghislaine Maxwell

Scott Borgerson, the CEO of a maritime analytics company, is back in the news for his ties to Jeffrey Epstein's inner circle.

The Daily Mail reported last summer that Borgerson was dating and housing Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein's former girlfriend and alleged madam. Authorities arrested Maxwell on July 2 , and she remains behind bars without bail until she stands trial in 2021 to face allegations she recruited underaged girls for Epstein.

Borgerson denied the August 2019 report to Business Insider at the time, and said Maxwell was only a "former friend" who was not living at his home in Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts. Maxwell was then spotted at an In-N-Out Burger joint in Los Angeles the next day.

The relationship between Borgerson and Maxwell is still not clear, but the CEO's name has resurfaced after prosecutors recently alleged in court that Maxwell is secretly married . Maxwell has declined to provide the name of her spouse, but news outlets have suggested it could be Borgerson...

...Scott Borgerson, 44, is the CEO of CargoMetrics, a data-analytics company for maritime trade and shipping. He cofounded the Boston-based company in 2010, and it was most recently valued at $100 million in 2016.

Borgerson's company has raised nearly $23 million from investors, which include former Google CEO Eric Schmidt. Schmidt led a $10 million funding round for CargoMetrics in August 2017, according to PitchBook.

Borgerson owns an oceanfront property, reportedly worth $3 million, in Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts. Manchester-by-the-Sea is a small town north of Boston with a population of just over 5,000 people.

The Daily Mail reported in August 2019 that Borgerson was dating and housing Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein's alleged madam who had largely remained out of the public eye. Maxwell was close to Epstein, and reportedly recruited underage girls for Epstein and participated in their abuse.

The Daily Mail also reported Maxwell had become a "homebody" who was "hiding out" at Borgerson's home, and that the pair have been dating for around five years. However, Borgerson denied the report to Business Insider at the time, and said Maxwell was a "former friend."...

[Jul 15, 2020] Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell employed ex-British military personnel to hide from FBI by Zack Budryk

Jul 15, 2020 | www.msn.com

Ghislaine Maxwell, the British socialite charged with aiding the late Jeffrey Epstein in the sex trafficking of minors, employed former British military personnel as security at the New Hampshire estate where she was arrested earlier this month, federal prosecutors said in a court filing Monday.

The office of the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York said Maxwell, in addition to the security detail, wrapped her cell phone in aluminum foil to avoid detection. FBI agents had to break down the door of the facility and found her hiding inside a room in its interior, prosecutors said, according to The Washington Post.

The FBI added that Maxwell sent the security personnel out to make "purchases for the property" with a credit card, and that the guards worked in rotating shifts.

The U.S. attorney's office has argued Maxwell is a flight risk, citing her citizenship in three countries, including her birthplace of France, which does not extradite citizens.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Alison Moe cited these precautions as further evidence Maxwell, who has denied the charges, is a flight risk. "As these facts make plain, there should be no question that the defendant is skilled at living in hiding," Moe wrote, according to the Post.

Since Maxwell's indictment, Moe wrote, investigators "have been in touch with additional individuals who have expressed a willingness to provide information regarding the defendant," who have given the U.S. attorney's office further information that "has the potential to make the Government's case even stronger," according to the newspaper.

Federal prosecutors have charged Maxwell on six counts, including sex trafficking, perjury and enticement of minors. She is due to appear in court Tuesday.

Maxwell's lawyers have claimed she was estranged from Epstein at the time of his death and that her precautions were against the media rather than law enforcement.

Ghislaine Maxwell Pedo Sex-Trafficking Investigation Launched In Virgin Islands by Tyler Durden Tue, 07/14/2020 - 10:44 Twitter Facebook Reddit Email Print

Ghislaine Maxwell - who's facing six charges in New York over her alleged role in Jeffrey Epstein's pedophile sex-trafficking ring, is also under investigation in the US Virgin Islands .

The revelation comes in a July 10 filing to intervene in a lawsuit Maxwell filed against Epstein's estate seeking reimbursement for legal fees, and claiming that Epstein had repeatedly promised to support her financially, according to The Sun .

The Island's Justice Department is "investigating Maxwell's participation in Epstein's criminal sex trafficking and sexual abuse conduct," read the court papers.

Epstein infamously owned Little St. James island, dubbed 'pedo island' over accusations that he would fly underage girls there to fulfill his sexual desires and those of his associates. Famous guests reportedly include Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, Stephen Hawking, Les Wexner and others.

One accuser, Chaunte Davies, says she was raped by Epstein over the course of several years before finally parting ways with him in 2005.

Accuser Chaunte Davies, Ghislaine Maxwell

Now 40, Chaunte says the ex-Wall Street banker performed a sex act on himself during their first massage session - and that she was "manipulated" into staying in their circle by Maxwell . "Within weeks she was jetting round the world on his private jet and on to his island of Little Saint James," according to the report.

"The government's need to intervene is further fueled by Maxwell's inappropriate use of the Virgin Islands courts to seek payment and reimbursement from the Epstein criminal enterprise, while she circumvents the service of process of government subpoenas related to her involvement in that criminal enterprise ," reads the filing.

Island officials have also subpoenaed Maxwell to try and compel her to appear before a local court - a bid which may prove difficult considering her current status as an inmate awaiting trial at a New York detention center following her July 2 arrest in New Hampshire. Maxwell has evaded Virgin Islands officials since March.

Maxwell is set to appear for a virtual bail and arraignment hearing on Tuesday. Her legal team has requested that she be freed on $5 million bail, arguing that she's not a flight risk and may catch coronavirus in jail. Prosecutors for the US Justice Department strongly disagreed, pointing to Maxwell's opaque finances and global contacts that pose a significant flight risk.

"She has demonstrated her ability to evade detection, and the victims of the defendant's crimes seek her detention," said DOJ prosecutors in their filing. "Because there is no set of conditions short of incarceration that can reasonably assure the defendant's appearance, the government urges the Court to detain her ."

[Jul 14, 2020] New Court Filing- Ghislaine Maxwell 'Fled' Across House During Raid; FBI Found Tin Foil-Wrapped Cell Phone -

Jul 14, 2020 | www.zerohedge.com

According to the filing, one of Maxwell's security guards told agents that that the British socialite's brother had hired former members of the British military to guard her 24-7. As Bloomberg reports, Maxwell gave one of the guards a credit card in the name of the same LLC which bought her luxury New Hampshire bugout last year. According to the guard, Maxwell hadn't left the property in the time he'd been working there, and had been ordered to buy things for the estate.

Federal prosecutors detailed the lengths Maxwell went to in order to evade US law enforcement in order to argue that she's a flight risk who has access to "extraordinary financial resources" and would flee the country if allowed free on bail. A federal judge will decide on Tuesday whether to grant Maxwell's request to post $5 million bond so she can live under house arrest until her trial.

"She has demonstrated her ability to evade detection, and the victims of the defendant's crimes seek her detention," said DOJ prosecutors in their filing. "Because there is no set of conditions short of incarceration that can reasonably assure the defendant's appearance, the government urges the Court to detain her."

Maxwell wouldn't be extradited if she fled to France where she has citizenship, argued the prosecution, as the country does not extradite its own citizens to the US for prosecution, according to the report.

The government also argued Maxwell has been hiding from authorities, living in a secluded 156-acre estate in Bradford, New Hampshire, since late last year.

Maxwell is accused of luring girls as young as 14 for sexual encounters with Epstein and engaging in some of the abus e. Prosecutors argued she could face as long as 35 years in prison if convicted. Epstein died in a Manhattan lockup last August of an apparent suicide while awaiting trial on federal sex-trafficking charges.

While Maxwell's lawyers said in a separate court filing that she has six people willing to co-sign her bond, prosecutors argued she hasn't identified these people, whether any are even in the U.S. or have the sufficient finances to pay if she does flee. - Bloomberg

Maxwell's defense team also cited her long ties to the US, where she has lived for decades. They're also arguing that Maxwell was covered by Epstein's controversial 2007 non-prosecution agreement which allowed the convicted pedophile to avoid federal sex trafficking charges.

Federal prosecutors called that "absurd," arguing that the current case involved evidence from two new accusers who weren't involved in the prior prosecution - and that their case could become "even stronger" as additional witnesses have come forward to offer evidence against Maxwell.

See the court filing below:

ender Jeffrey Epstein, sought to evade FBI detection by using former British military personnel as personal security and wrapping her cellphone in tin foil in an apparent anti-tracing attempt, federal prosecutors alleged Monday.

When the FBI moved on Maxwell at her estate in New Hampshire about two weeks ago, agents had to break down the door and found Maxwell hiding in a room in the interior of the home, according to a new court filing from the government opposing her release on bail.

The details of her arrest were disclosed as Maxwell, 58, is expected to face a Manhattan judge for the first time on Tuesday for a ruling on the $5 million bail bond package -- with home confinement and GPS monitoring -- that her lawyers proposed last week.

The U.S. attorney's office for the Southern District of New York has maintained that Maxwell, who has citizenship in three countries including the United States, is a flight risk. She was tracked down at the secluded estate in Bradford, N.H., and arrested July 2.

She was born in France, which does not extradite its own citizens, raising fears among prosecutors that she could leave the country if released and never return to face charges. Authorities have accused her of recruiting underage girls for Epstein to abuse and occasionally participating in criminal sex acts alongside him, saying she "normalized" the idea of having sex with Epstein, her longtime companion, causing lasting psychological and emotional damage to the victims.

Maxwell has denied the allegations, and her attorneys recently said she was estranged from Epstein for a decade before his suicide in August while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges. She faces up to 35 years in prison.

Maxwell, the wealthy daughter of a deceased British media mogul, was so intent on not being located that she never left her house, sending the security staff out "to make purchases for the property" using a credit card they were provided, a guard there allegedly told the FBI, according to Monday's court filing. The guards were hired by Maxwell's brother and worked in "rotations," prosecutors wrote.

"As these facts make plain, there should be no question that the defendant is skilled at living in hiding," Assistant U.S. Attorney Alison Moe wrote.

The U.S. attorney's office noted in its filing that since Maxwell's indictment, investigators "have been in touch with additional individuals who have expressed a willingness to provide information regarding the defendant." The evidence provided by those individuals, who were not identified in the filing, "has the potential to make the Government's case even stronger," it says.

Maxwell's bail proposal involves posting "a multi-million dollar property" in the United Kingdom as collateral -- which prosecutors have deemed essentially useless because the U.S. government could not seize it -- and she has refused to reveal the true extent of her assets to investigators, the filing says.

Maxwell's attorneys argued last week that she was hiding from the media, not the FBI, before her arrest and that she should not be subjected to the risk of contracting the novel coronavirus at the Brooklyn federal jail where she has been held since her transfer from New Hampshire.

An alleged former Jewel thief who says he had group sex with Ghislaine Maxwell but 'drew the line at under-age girls' claims he was forced to watch pedo videos involving 'two high-profile US politicians' and 'two high society figures having a threesome with an under-age girl.'

Whether one believes an anonymous ex-jewel thief's exclusive interview with The Sun is up to the reader. That said, Epstein accuser Maria Farmer claimed there was a ' secret media room ' in the dead pedophile's New York mansion which was full of recording equipment.

What's more, former Israeli spy Ari Ben-Menashe - alleged "handler" of Ghislaine's father, Robert Maxwell, told the authors of Epstein: Dead Men Tell No Tales , that the Epstein was operating a "complex intelligence operation" at the behest of Mossad, and 'filmed US politicians and power players having sex with underage girls to blackmail them.'

Jumping into the salacious claims by the jewel thief, who goes by the name William Steel, the story begins in the mid-1990s when Steel claims he met Epstein in the "upstairs room at a very high-end diamond dealer, the kind of place where only a few people are allowed in at a time."

"I was there doing what I do. I was meeting my fence.

" I saw Jeff with a young girl who looked only about 13 or 14 and he had his hand in the back of her shorts.

"That's what first got my attention.

"She was so young and he was much older. That's when I knew that he was dirty.

" I had about 200,000 dollars worth of jewellery that I was getting rid of and later I struck up a conversation with him .

"He later said the girl he was with was his niece but I called bulls**t on that, telling him I saw what he was doing with her. - The Sun

At some point later, Steel says he met Ghislaine Maxwell - who he says he had sex with on multiple occasions - and wanted to see how she could use him to help Epstein. Steel says he was trying to do the same thing:

"I wouldn't say it was a relationship -- it was all about what she could use me for to help them. Me being a cocky young guy from New York City, seeing their arrogance and their wealth -- I just looked at it as an opportunity to milk them for what I could.

I used to brag about what I was capable of to them."

Steele added that " When I wanted to impress or scare somebody, I'd get my briefcase out and it would have police scanners in it, gloves, lock picks, guns with silencers, " adding "I even owned an ultra-thermic torch which would burn a hole into anything in seconds."

" That impressed Ghislaine and Jeff. "

SEX, LIES AND VIDEOTAPE:

Steel claims that he saw a parade of underage girls 'coming and going' from Epstein's Palm Beach oceanfront mansion, but that he never participated in pedophilic sex acts.

"I only ever had sex with Maxwell and threesomes with her and other adult females," he said. "I suspected what they were doing with the under-age girls, I knew their routine, so when they tried to get me involved, I said, 'No, I'm not into that -- you're not getting me on video doing any of that'."

Steel also says Ghislaine is a "nymphomaniac" who would try "everything and anything in bed."

...he was shown footage involving two high-profile US politicians having sex with minors and two high society figures having a threesome with an under-age girl.

Steel -- who is not being paid for this interview -- also branded Maxwell , 58, who was arrested last week in connection with trafficking young girls, a wild "nymphomaniac" who would try "everything and anything in bed".

He says: " I was forced to watch their videos because they were trying to impress me.

"They wanted to convince me of their power and who they held in their grip.

" They boasted about 'owning' powerful people.

" Ghislaine was more into showing me those than Jeff.

"When you're in a situation like that, you have to pretend to be non- judgmental. But it was shocking. - The Sun

"She said to me that she often thought she needed to do something about Epstein, telling me, 'He is going to be the death of me'" claimed Steel. " So while she protected him and helped him, she was simultaneously plotting against him and trying to distance herself. "

"She knew they could drag each other down," adding "I think she saw herself as the more respectable of the two. She wanted me to do something about Jeff. "

Ghislaine allegedly told Steel she had a "Polanski plan," named after disgraced pedophile and film director Roman Polanski, who fled the US after he was charged with the rape of a 13-year-old girl.

"She told me about her Polanski plan where she would flee to France because they couldn't extradite her," he said, adding "I was surprised to hear she'd been picked up in New Hampshire."

"I want the authorities to know about her plan before her bail hearing."

Steel claims he absconded with evidence - "discs and things they were trying to get rid of," and says he "sent them to the authorities, but I don't know if they did anything with them."

Why he wouldn't make copies is anyone's guess.

Steel said the pair also asked him to help them find girls -- but he refused.

He adds: "Ghislaine was always talking down to people.

"She tried to pull that on me but I told her straight, ' Don't speak to me like you speak to your f***ing staff. I'm doing favours for you guys. You're not talking down to me. I don't give a f how much money you have '.

"They knew I had connections in various places and they offered me money to bring in girls but I never took them up on any of that.

"They told me, 'Whatever the girls want, I can help them with their modelling career if they want that or pay for their education, and it's just massages'.

"And I said, 'Yeah, I'm pretty sure what your massages turn into'.

"And he would just smirk at me and say that I could have what I wanted.

"I said I didn't want that, it's not fair to take advantage of these young girls. It's not right.

" He wanted me to help him with a plan he had to kidnap or pay 100 young girls and take them to an island where he would have sex with them, orgies, use them for blackmail and have babies with them.

"I just told him to shut up. I didn't even realise he was serious until years later.

"For him, at that time, his focus was getting girls that were not from the United States.

" He wanted girls from abroad because he felt they wouldn't know how the criminal justice system in the US works and would be less likely to report him.

"He said he would help look after their families but I said, 'I'm not going to help you ruin a teenage girl's life'. - The Sun

And that, is the rest of the ex-jewel thief's sordid tale.

[Jul 09, 2020] Is Jeffrey Epstein's Boss Ghislaine Maxwell Helping Mossad Run Pedophile Rings for Prince Andrew and the Ruling Elite, by Marco de Wit

Jul 09, 2020 | www.unz.com

The Epstein Pedoscandal Mossad Timeline shows in detail how Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell were working for the Israeli intelligence agency, Mossad.

The timeline generated many comments at Unz.com but surprisingly most of them dealt whether Epstein was a pedophile or not. This despite the overwhelming evidence of pedophilia.

Many have also totally missed – or are afraid to notice – the big picture: Israeli intelligence agencies and especially Mossad seem to be running pedophile rings that blackmail Western political, business and scientific leaders.

Furthermore, it seems that Ghislaine Maxwell was and still is the master mind behind many of these pedophile rings.

One of the reasons Epstein and Ghislaine were able to continue sex trafficking with impunity for so long was the appearance that Epstein was a victim of jealous people and overzealous police. Many people thought that Epstein had only had sex with a 17-year old girl who had lied about her age.

This excuse worked well because in Florida the age of consent is 18 while in most other American states it is 16.

Epstein was able to play the martyr by not only claiming that unscrupulous girls had lied their age but also by implying that the age of consent is too high anyway in Florida.

This was also one reason why in New Mexico where Epstein had his Zorro Ranch the officials refused to register him as a sex offender. In New Mexico the age of consent was 16 until in 2018 it was raised to 18.

Furthermore, unlike in many other states, in New Mexico the courts recognize a mistake of age defense.

New Mexico courts recognize a mistake of age defense . The mistake of age defense is basically "I thought she was 17." However, this is no guarantee that this defense will work in court. Moreover, the mistake of age is the creation of judges in the absence of a direct statute addressing the defense. State lawmakers may pass a law overriding the courts on this issue at any time. ( LegalMatch )

In reality the Epstein-Ghislaine case is not whether it is wrong for an adult to have sex with a 17 year old. Instead it is about many other things such as prostitution, grooming, pedophilia and the exploitation of children.

This all is connected to global politics involving sex trafficking, drug and arms trade, money laundering, Ponzi schemes, spy networks and blackmailing for Mossad.

Epstein's victims were caught in a web of international spy network that used them as pawns for blackmail operations. The younger the girls were, the more leverage Israel would have over politicians, billionaires and scientists. Thus Epstein and Ghislaine tried to also recruit girls who were well under the age of 16.

What is more, they personally enjoyed having sex with these very young girls. Both Epstein and Ghislaine seem to have been pedophiles who were attracted to prepubescent girls and boys, i.e. small children.

Pedophilia is defined as:

Pedophilia ( alternatively spelt paedophilia) is a psychiatric disorder in which an adult or older adolescent experiences a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children. [1] [2] ( Wikipedia )

Note that in order to be a pedophile it is enough to have merely occasional sexual attraction to prepubescent, i.e. sexually immature children who have not yet developed secondary sex characteristics, such as breasts.

Julie Brown from Miami Herald notes that Courtney Wild was only 14 when she was recruited into Epstein's sex ring.

Wild still had braces on her teeth when she was introduced to him in 2002 at the age of 14.

She was fair, petite and slender, blonde and blue-eyed. (emphasis added. Miami Herald )

Link to Miami Herald

Julie Brown also notes that Epstein preferred girls who were not only white [and non-Jewish] but also appeared prepubescent.

Wild, who later helped recruit other girls, said Epstein preferred girls who were white, appeared prepubescent and those who were easy to manipulate into going further each time. (Emphasis added. Miami Herald )

For Epstein and Ghislaine it was important that the girls at the very least looked like small children. This is obviously why they preferred girls who were under 16.

Courtney Wild told the police that she brought Epstein over 70 girls and they were all under 16.

By the time I was 16, I had probably brought him 70 to 80 girls who were all 14 and 15 years old (Emphasis added. Miami Herald )

Some girls were even younger. According to the police many were 13 year old.

The girls -- mostly 13 to 16 -- were lured to his pink waterfront mansion by Wild and other girls, who went to malls, house parties and other places where girls congregated, and told recruits that they could earn $200 to $300 to give a man -- Epstein -- a massage, according to an unredacted copy of the Palm Beach police investigation obtained by the Herald. (Emphasis added. Miami Herald )

It is also important to note that even 13 was not the minimum age for Epstein and Ghislaine. In fact, there was no limit to how young the girls could be. Both Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell emphasized that the younger the better.

Eventually, she said Maxwell trained her to recruit new girls for Epstein.

"Jeffrey was very particular in the kind of girls he wanted. First off, the younger the better ."

Epstein said that to her, Giuffre claimed, and " Maxwell said that too . During the training and telling me how to do it, she said 'You always have to go for the youngest-looking ones .'" (Emphasis added. The Daily Beast )

Link to The Daily Beast

It seems the primary purpose was not even blackmail since especially Epstein was having sex with these young girls all the time. On some days Epstein was having sex several times a day.

Sex games were more important for Epstein than work. Obviously, he was extremely attracted to these young girls.

Palm Beach multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein, 54, was accused of assembling a large, cult-like network of underage girls -- with the help of young female recruiters -- to coerce into having sex acts behind the walls of his opulent waterfront mansion as often as three times a day , the Town of Palm Beach police found. (Emphasis added. Miami Herald )

In six months, I never saw him do a day's work," Ransome told The Telegraph. "I never saw him work. He was literally sexually abusing us all day long . (Emphasis added. Business Insider )

Link to Business Insider

Ghislaine also seemed to be obsessed with sex. Just like her father, Robert Maxwell she was rumored to be interested in unconventional sex which includes also sex with young children.

As she [Ghislaine] posed for the pics, which ran in a publication meant to promote Sotheby's vintage fashion collection, she allegedly let slip comments that hinted at a twisted double life.

"She didn't talk about Epstein, but during the shoot she did tell a story about how she just hosted a dinner party for a number of young girls, and she put dildos at each place setting," the source said. "Ghislaine then described how during the dinner two guests, who were a couple, began demonstrating how to do the perfect fellatio on a man for all at the table. She was laughing about it."

"A friend of mine has a whole theory about her, that Epstein was like her father Robert Maxwell, who himself is believed to have had some strange sexual practices." ( Page Six )

Link to PageSix

The Epstein Mossad-Timeline shows how Ghislaine was most probably trained by Mossad to use sex to gather information. That training would not have been too difficult for her since she was hypersexual. Many even considered her a nymphomaniac.

In fact, even many Israeli Jews – who usually have much fewer sexual taboos than puritan English and Americans – were shocked by her raunchy sexuality.

Flirtatious indeed: I understand from a mutual friend that after school she travelled to Israel and visited a kibbutz; she was immediately ostracised by the other girls for making a rather-too-obvious beeline for the Adonis-like lifeguard at the kibbutz pool. Very quickly she got her way, as she would with much in her life. ( Tatler . Emphasis added.)

Even Ghislaine's friend were sometimes shocked by her open sexuality that so often contrasted with her otherwise lady-like behavior and position in high society.

Ghislaine was, added Mason, 'fantastically entertaining' and 'saucy' – the paper said that she talked openly about sex .

In fact, said another acquaintance who saw her often at parties, she was 'obsessed by sex . She's Sphinx-like, mysterious. The last time I saw her, five, 10 years ago, I said what are you up to? And she said "I'm selling this product – stainless-steel mini dumb-bells – that you put up your fanny. For exercising your vaginal muscles, exercise your pelvic floor, learn the Singapore Grip. I'm giving seminars in LA and they all turn up and I tell them, this is how you keep your man."' ( Tatler . Emphasis added.)

Epstein and Ghislaine were both hypersexual. All kind of sex interested them. Little girls were just part of the menu. Or more specifically, the best – and most profitable – part.

Epstein and Ghislaine were so attracted to young girls that nothing seemed to satisfy them. Perhaps this is why Epstein and Ghislaine created the highly risky sexual pyramid scheme. The girls were offered two alternatives: Either satisfy Epstein and Ghislaine sexually or get more girls to satisfy them.

In this way Epstein and Ghislaine were able to recruit literally hundreds of young girls. However, some of these girls went to the police and the sexual pyramid scheme collapsed.

When Epstein got out of jail in 2009 he had half-learned his lesson: American girls are too risky.

Now Epstein and Ghislaine would only concentrate on East European girls with the help of their Jewish-Ukrainian friend Peter Listerman.

One of the lesser-known shadowy figures linked to Jeffrey Epstein and his sex ring of teenage girls and young women is Ukrainian-born Peter Listerman, who has worked as a businessman and television presenter but is most known for his "match-making" abilities.

What match-making really means is that Listerman procures women, often underage, for the jet-set society to use for sexual purposes. His "clients" include Russian oligarchs and American businessmen and seems to have also included Jeffrey Epstein. ( Citizen Truth )

Link to the Citizen Truth.org

Listerman has such a bad reputation that he is shunned even in Ukraine!

Tatiana Savchenko, who founded the first modeling school in Odessa, Ukraine explained to the Daily Beast the lengths she had to go to keep Listerman from getting his hands on young women and trafficking them for sex work.

She claimed that he would frequently approach her students and attempt to lure them with promises of a luxurious lifestyle, and that "It took a lot of work to keep him from tricking our teen models in his traps." ( Citizen Truth )

Peter Listerman is the usual suspect. Link to Fishki.net Do you think I am kidding? I am Peter Listerman! Link to Fishki.net

Both Epstein and Listerman were attracted to very young girls. Neither even tried to hide it much. In fact, Epstein was quite open about his attraction to tweens.

Just three months ago, as federal prosecutors were closing in with new charges, Mr. Epstein had a conversation with R. Couri Hay, a publicist, about continuing to improve his reputation. Mr. Epstein asserted that what he was convicted of did not constitute pedophilia, said Mr. Hay, who declined to represent him.

The girls he had sex with were "tweens and teens," Mr. Epstein told him. ( The New York Times )

But what is a tween?

Preadolescent is generally defined as those ranging from age 10 to 13 years. [4] [6] While known as preadolescent in psychology, the terms preteen, preteenager or tween are common in everyday use. ( Wikipedia )

Epstein was right, of course. What he was convicted of in 2007 did not constitute pedophilia. However, that is precisely one reason why people are so outraged!

Epstein and Ghislaine did not see any problem of recruiting, grooming and having sex also with tweens. And apparently neither did the Justice Department and the FBI led by Robert Mueller !

But it gets even worse. As pointed out in the Epstein Pedoscandal Mossad Timeline , it seems that Epstein and Ghislaine were after even younger girls.

In 2003 Epstein financed Jean-Luc Brunell's(?) and Jeff Fuller's(J) new modelling agency MC2 that seemed to have worked with Peter Listerman.

MC2 obviously refers to the famous Einstein equation E = MC2 , the energy-mass equivalence. Equally obviously, E equals Epstein, the energy, whereas the girls equal MC2, the mass energized by Epstein.

Jean-Luc Brunell

Brunell is generally known as the sleaziest man in model business who has long faced accusations that girls were drugged and raped in his employ . Already in the 80s he was the subject of a famous 60 Minutes expose on sexual abuse in the modeling industry

https://www.youtube.com/embed/CH8NAaPUvlo?feature=oembed

Despite all this – or for the very reason – Epstein invested in MC2 and became particularly close to its founders Brunel and Fuller.

The agency operates in New York, Miami and Tel Aviv. It's in practice half-Israeli.

Many call Israel the capital of human trafficking and organ harvesting .

Brunel seems to have given 12-year old triplets to Epstein as a birthday present.

'Jeffrey bragged after he met them that they were 12-year-olds and flown over from France because they're really poor over there, and their parents needed the money or whatever the case is and they were absolutely free to stay and flew out,' Giuffre said.

She said she saw the three girls with her own eyes and that Epstein had repeatedly described to her how the girls had massaged him and performed oral sex on him. They were flown back to France the next day.

It seems that even tweens were not young enough for Epstein.

According to court papers in 2005 Brunel called Epstein and left a message that "he is sending him a 16-year-old Russian girl for purposes of sex". However, the written message says something even worse.

The message, filed as an exhibit in the case, was written on an office message pad, partly in code, and read: "He [Brunel] has a teacher for you to teach you how to speak Russian. She is 2×8 years old not blonde. Lessons are free and you can have your 1st today if you call." ( New York Post )

Does it mean that two eight year olds are involved? Or does 2 x 8 mean to sex 8 year old? (2=to, x=sex)

Why would the lessons be free and why is it relevant that the "teacher" is not a blond?

There is no denying that Epstein and Ghislaine sexualised even small children. This became clear in 2005 when police raided Epstein's Palm Peach mansion.

In one photo that was hanging on the wall a small six or seven year old girl was bending over in a tiny dress. Police blurred out the photo in the video taken during the raid.

Despite all this only the Russian Television was actively trying to expose Epstein and Ghislaine.

RT aired this video already nine years ago!

The description on the video is even more revealing. It even mentions the 12-year old triplets.

https://www.youtube.com/embed/0f_Md0yzy4Q?feature=oembed

The American TV networks were actively suppressing the story for years.

The American media has also been trying to cover up the fact that Jeffrey Epstein was most probably murdered in his cell. He had to be silenced.

https://www.youtube.com/embed/8non5URYbQs?feature=oembed

But it gets even worse.

This hung on Ghislaine's home wall.

The so called artwork seems to be full of pedophile symbols.

Link to Wikileaks.org

The quality of the photos taken at Ghislaine's home are so good that even more symbols have been found in her artwork.

For some reason the mainstream media has not picked up on this pedophilia angle. No mainstream media journalist has even tried to ask why would Ghislaine have such art and symbols on her home wall.

This despite the fact that Ghislaine is most probably an Israeli superspy just like was her father, Robert Maxwell. She probably has been trained to use sex – including pedophilia – as a tool for blackmail and manipulation.

At the time in Israel females molesting little boys was not even considered rape.

Link to Haaretz.com

Nor have mainstream journalists asked where was Ghislaine when Madeline McCann was abducted.

That would not be an unreasonable question since one of the E-Fit images looks a lot like Ghislaine.

Link to Enchanted Life Path.com

Furthermore, two of the E-Fit images (1A, 1B) look like the Podesta brothers. John Podesta was White House Chief of Staff to Bill Clinton and the Chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.

Ghislaine and Epstein were close to the Clintons and the Podesta brothers have been directly linked also to Pizzagate.

Was Ghislaine helping to run also Pizzagate and other pedophile rings for Mossad?

At least she seems to be perfectly trained to do just that. First, her own hypersexuality, family background and possible training by Mossad made it easy for her to master mind the pedophilia ring she run with Epstein.

Second, Ghislaine and Epstein had all the apparel to help run also other pedophile rings: Lolita express airplanes and helicopters, Zorro Ranch in New Mexico and luxury mansions in New York, Palm Peach and Paris.

Even more importantly they had their own island in the Virgin Islands.

In the 90s Epstein bought Little St. James island from the Virgin islands. It had a mansion which Epstein expanded.

Soon locals started to call it the Pedophile Island.

Little St. James island. Link to Wall Street Journal article

The island seems to have tunnels with several underground entrances.

Underground entrance Link to Twitter

The island also has a strange temple.

https://www.youtube.com/embed/LNue92Gta3s?feature=oembed

We Are Change's Luke Rudkowski and the Dollar Vigilante's Jeff Berwick secretly visited the island but were soon chased out.

https://www.youtube.com/embed/VmgSM7lWRts?feature=oembed

Ghislaine has a Helicopter Pilot License and often transported quests to the island.

On the weekends in the 1990s, Maxwell would have her Rollerblades FedExed to Epstein's island in the Caribbean, and said she got her helicopter's license so she could transport anyone she liked without pilots knowing who they were .

Maxwell also said the island had been completely wired for video; the friend thought that she and Epstein were videotaping everyone on the island as an insurance policy, as blackmail.

A source close to Maxwell says she spoke glibly and confidently about getting girls to sexually service Epstein, saying this was simply what he wanted, and describing the way she'd drive around to spas and trailer parks in Florida to recruit them. She would claim she had a phone job for them, "and you'll make lots of money, meet everyone, and I'll change your life."

Maxwell had one other thing to tell this woman: "When I asked what she thought of the underage girls, she looked at me and said, 'they're nothing, these girls. They are trash .'" (Emphasis added. Vanity Fair )

Ghislaine was naturally using Epstein's helicopters. Some of them shared their FAA tail number with a US contractor, Dyncorp . That would have helped Ghislaine and Epstein to fly drugs and children.

FAA records and Epstein's pilot's flight manifest indicate that Epstein's Bell helicopter used the same tail number of N474AW . This was the same tail number used until 2006 by State Department contractor Dyncorp for counter-insurgency operations in Latin America.

The congruence of Epstein's Bell N474AW and Dincorp's Bronco N474AW is noteworthy. In 2002, the year Epstein's aircraft fleet stands accused of flying underage teen girls, some between the ages of 12 and 15 , coincided with Dyncorp's trafficking in underage females between the ages of 12 and 15 from Kosovo and Bosnia in the Balkans.

One Dyncorp whistleblower reported to The Washington Times's Insight magazine's Kelly O'Meara in 2002 the following on one Dyncorp employee in Bosnia:

[he] owned a girl who couldn't have been more than 14 years old. It's a sick sight anyway to see any grown man [having sex] with a child, but to see some 45-year-old man who weights 400 pounds with a little girl, it just makes you sick."

Tail number N474AW has been shared between Epstein's Bell helicopter like the one in this photo. (Emphasis added. Political Bull Pen )

DynCorp's pedophilia ring became internationally infamous with the release of the movie Whistleblower.

Link to Wikipedia

Helicopters can always be seen. However, Ghislaine also has a license to operate submarines!

In 2012 – three years after Epstein got out of jail – Maxwell founded The TerraMar Project , [51] a nonprofit organization that advocated protecting ocean waters.

She gave a lecture for TerraMar at the University of Texas at Dallas and a TED talk, at TEDx Charlottesville in 2014. [52] Maxwell accompanied Stuart Beck (J), a 2013 TerraMar board member, to two United Nations meetings to discuss the project. [17] ( Wikipedia )

In 2014, a United Nations event featured Maxwell as a speaker. According to her bio in the program, Maxwell's "web-based non-profit" aimed "to protect the Oceans by empowering a global community of ocean citizens ." It further described Maxwell as "a private helicopter pilot and an Emergency Medical Technician and a qualified ROV and Deepworker submarine pilot ."

A former Coast Guard officer, Borgerson was also a fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations , which featured Borgerson and Maxwell as speakers during one 2014 talk titled "Governing the Ocean Commons: Growing Challenges, New Approaches." Friends of Maxwell, according to The New York Times , said Borgerson became her boyfriend. Maxwell had allegedly described Borgerson as a " Navy SEAL " to her pals.

Maxwell's dubious charity also roped in the Clinton Global Initiative , the now-defunct networking platform for the Clinton Foundation. In the fall of 2013, CGI named TerraMar as one of the "commitments to action" at their annual meeting. (Emphasis added. Daily Beast )

Did the Pedophile Island have an underground submarine base? Was it a part of global pedophile network?

And was the Ocean Citizens project an attempt to escape national jurisdictions and thus gain at least a partial immunity from police investigations and prosecutions?

Link to TerraMar Project

Interestingly, as late as 2016 Epstein bought also the nearby Great St. James Island. He started to build on the island without permits.

There were rumors that he was building underground. For some reason the mainstream media has had no interest in this second island.

https://www.youtube.com/embed/v1NKk78YQKI?feature=oembed

Why is the mainstream media not interested in Ghislaine's many links to pedophilia?

Perhaps because Ghislaine has so many powerful friends. The photo of the pedophile artwork on Ghislaine's wall was taken 13 March 2007 during a party at Ghislaine's New York townhouse. The guest list included a curious combination of elite Jews, aristocratic Brits and American WASPs.

The party was in Ghislaine's huge 7000-square-foot townhouse. It is located in the most opulent and prestigious neighborhood of America, the Upper East Side , New York on East 65th Street just off Park Avenue. Epstein's townhouse was only 10 blocks away.

Ghislaine's five story townhouse. Link to Street Easy Ghislaine's townhouse floor plan. Link to Street Easy Ghislaine's townhouse 2nd floor gallery. Link to Street Easy

There are reports from reliable sources that the townhouse was sold in 2000 to Ghislaine by Lynn Forester de Rothschild . The very same woman who had introduced Epstein and Ghislaine to Alan Dershowits and the Clintons in the 90s.

The Manhattan property, which is close to Epstein's mansion, is owned by Lynn Forester de Rothschild, wife of British financier Sir Evelyn de Rothschild. (See The Times and the original article .)

According to Business Insider Forester sold the townhouse to Ghislaine for less than half the price.

Forester sold the mansion for about $8.5 million less than its assessed market value, which was more than $13.4 million.

Was this a pay-off to Ghislaine from the King of Jews, the Rothschilds for services rendered?

Hillary Clinton, Evelyn de Rothschild, Bill Clinton and Lynn Forester de Rothschild. Link to Mint Press

It probably is also relevant that at the time of the sale of the townhouse the Prime Minister of Israel was Ehud Barak. In the 80s he had been the head of Aman, the Israeli Military Intelligence Agency. As the Epstein Pedoscandal Mossad Timeline revealed, both Epstein and Ghislaine worked for the Israeli intelligence agencies already in the 80s during the Iran-Contra operation.

Note that it was around year 2000 that Epstein and Ghislaine started the pedophile operation in earnest. In the 80s and 90s blackmail operations were a side show but now it became the main show involving hundreds of young girls.

Sexual blackmail – especially involving little children – can be an extremely efficient way to influence key politicians and even military officials. A successful blackmail operation can achieve more than several army divisions. No wonder Barak was so close to Epstein and Ghislaine.

Furthermore, in 2000 the president of Israel was Moshe Katsev who was sexually harassing and even raping his female subordinates. Later Katsev would be convicted of rape.

https://www.youtube.com/embed/Fw9-HUiI9Ak?feature=oembed

It was also in 2000 when the Israeli Vice-Consul of Rio de Janeiro, Arie Scher and Hebrew language Professor George Schteinberg were running a pedophile ring for Israeli tourists. When the Brasilian police started to investigate the Israeli consulate Scher managed to flee back to Israel.

Link to Rodoh.info

In Israel Scher was not prosecuted. Instead in 2005 he was promoted to Consul of Canberra, the capital of Australia. A spokesman for the Israeli Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem, Mark Regev explained:

He [Arie Scher] was a young and single man at the time [in Brazil]. Now he is married and he's six years older and there is no reason why he shouldn't make an excellent diplomatic appointment in Australia.

Australia refused to let Scher enter the country.

Link to William Bowles Info

The most shocking part of the Arie/Aryeh Scher story is that the mainstream media was not interested. Either the stories have been scrubbed from the internet or no stories were ever written by mainstream journalists except one short story by BBC in 2000 and one even smaller story by The Sydney Morning Herald in 2005. Even more surprisingly Youtube does not seem to have any videos about the Scher case.

No wonder Barak was absolutely convinced that the Western mainstream media would never dare to criticize Israel and its intelligence agencies. Not even when Mossad was running pedophile rings.

It was probably the Israeli leaders Shimon Peres, Ehud Barak and Moshe Katsev together with the ultra-Zionist Mega Group who made sure Epstein and especially the Maxwell family had not only immunity from prosecution but also all the blackmail apparel necessary including luxury townhouses, airplanes, yachts, submarines, ranch and a private island. All, of course, bugged to the hilt.

Here the pedophile artwork at Ghislaine's New York townhouse can be seen behind Lillian von Staufenberg who in March 2007 together with Ghislaine and Hamish Bowles organized a dinner party in honor of Allegra Hicks. This at a time when Epstein had already been charged with abusing young girls.

Why would Ghislaine have such a suspicious artwork on her wall knowing that it would probably be photographed during the parties?

Why would Ghislaine and her quests take such a huge risk? Or was it a sign meant to be seen? Was Ghislaine flaunting her power?

Ghislaine and her quests seemed to be absolutely sure that the mainstream media would not dare to ask embarrassing questions.

They were right, of course. The mainstream media knows its place.

However, occasionally some courageous mainstream journalist or editor does try to give hints. Some have even reported on Ghislaine's hyper-sexual reputation and her orgies. It is just that the stories have mostly been scrubbed from the internet.

Fortunately, Whitney Webb from Mintpress has found many of the scrubbed stories. Some of them mention the Mossad connection and others note the orgies. For example, in 2003 a British newspaper, The Evening Standard reported a revealing rumor.

Salacious reports have crossed the Atlantic about Ghislaine hosting bizarre parties at her house to which she invites a dozen or so young girls, then brandishes a whip and teaches them how to improve their sexual techniques.

It seems that Ghislaine was not only a madame to Epstein but also to the ruling elite. This would both explain her popularity and the fact that the media – and especially the American media – dares not to criticize her too much. Not even after her boyfriend Epstein was charged with sex trafficking minors!

Ghislaine's friends are just too powerful. After the March 2007 party the British Daily Mail newspaper was amazed how Ghislaine could still have attracted such creme de la creme of the highest elite. Even more amazingly, the elite was practically swooning over her.

The night before the party, the hostess [Ghislaine] had been inundated with calls from disgruntled socialites, irked that they hadn't received an invitation.

The hostess greeted their objections with her customary charm, but remained unmoved. As always, her list had been carefully edited, and she intended it to stay that way.

Among the select few were Hollywood star Matthew Modine, Kennedy family member Mrs Anthony Radziwill, Peggy Siegel, PR consultant to the stars, and Julie Janklow, heir to a literary dynasty.

There was a Rockefeller on the list, as well as the inevitable countesses, billionaires and New York luminaries.

Link to Daily Mail

The guests at the party included also Renee Rockefeller who is married to Mark Rockefeller , the son of ex-Vice President Nelson Rockefeller and nephew of David Rockefeller.

David Rockefeller lived at 146 East on the same 65th Street in the Upper East Side as Ghislaine. They were practically neighbors. Ghislaine would have to walk only two minutes to visit David.

David liked to pose for photos in his Beetle Room next to his favorite Picasso painting depicting a nude child "prostitute".

David was often visited by his close friend Jacob Rothschild, the patriarch of the Rothschild family.

The very same family that got Ghislaine her luxury townhouse next door.

As shown by the Epstein Pedoscandal Mossad Timeline both Epstein and Ghislaine continued to move in the highest circles long after Epstein got out of jail. In fact, only last year Ghislaine was invited to a secret writers' retreat hosted by the richest man in the world, Jeff Bezos.

Link to The Daily Mail

Not only billionaires but also royalty kept in close contact with Ghislaine.

Prince Andrew was recently interviewed by the BBC about his relationship with Epstein, Ghislaine and their sex slave Virginia Roberts.

https://www.youtube.com/embed/AKQi3wzNFGQ?feature=oembed

Amazingly, Andrew claimed she has no recollection of Epstein's and Ghislaine's sex slave, Virginia Roberts. This despite the fact that they were photographed together!

https://www.youtube.com/embed/TVawMbof6sQ?feature=oembed

Hardly anybody believes Andrew. The queen had no choice but to sack his own son.

Link to Daily Mail

Andrew got sacked because he was caught in a lie.

Andrew claimed he could not have had sex with the 17-year old Virginia in 2001 because he had stayed with the British consul general.

The problem is the consul general does not recall Andrew staying with him.

Link to Daily Mail

Curiously, most of the mainstream media has forgotten that it was Ghislaine who recruited and manipulated Virginia Roberts to become a sex slave.

Even the BBC forgot this crucial fact despite Andrew mentioning Ghislaine many times during the interview.

Time and again, the Prince invoked his friendship with Maxwell, 57, daughter of disgraced media tycoon Robert Maxwell, as the reason he came into paedophile Epstein's orbit.

Asked when he last saw Maxwell, Andrew said his last contact was 'earlier this year, funnily enough', when she 'was here doing some rally'. ( Daily Mail )

Andrew claimed to have met Ghislaine last spring. In fact, they met in June just after US prosecutors reopened the case against Epstein.

The Duke of York held a meeting with Ghislaine Maxwell in London two weeks after US prosecutors announced they wanted to reopen their investigation into Jeffrey Epstein.

The meeting took place on or about June 5, the day before Ms Maxwell took part in a four-day charity motoring rally from London to Monte Carlo.

Did Ghislaine demand that Andrew help make sure that the her own parallel case would not be reopened?

After meeting Andrew she literally disappeared from the face of the earth.

The ex-socialite has not been seen since although rumours have placed her in Brazil, France, the American mid-West and even the UK.

'No one knows where she is,' a lawyer for one of Epstein's victims said last night. 'She's done the greatest disappearing act known to man – or woman.' ( Daily Mail )

Link to Daily Mail

Shockingly, during the BBC interview Prince Andrew mentioned Ghislaine many times and seemed to be proud of their friendship. Despite this the interviewer did not dare to ask questions about their relationship.

Was this a message to all: Leave Ghislaine alone.

Ghislaine is obviously protected not only by the royal family but also by the whole ruling elite. No wonder that she has the Get-Out-of-Jail-Free card .

Ghislaine also tries to protect other Epstein associates.

Link to Daily Mail

Prince Andrew is now afraid to go to the US.

Five women who accuse Jeffrey Epstein of abusing them say Prince Andrew witnessed how people were given massages at the sex offender's homes.

The lawyer for the women has told BBC Panorama he plans to serve subpoenas to force the Duke of York to testify as a witness in all five cases.

He says the prince could have important information about sex trafficking. ( BBC )

Link to BBC story and video

The BBC has now finally zoomed in on Ghislaine.

Another Epstein victim, Sarah Ransome told Panorama Ghislaine Maxwell, one of Prince Andrew's oldest friends, worked hand in hand with Epstein.

"Ghislaine controlled the girls. She was like the Madam," she said.

"She was like the nuts and bolts of the sex trafficking operation and she would always visit Jeffrey on the island to make sure the girls were doing what they were supposed to be doing.

"She knew what Jeffrey liked. She worked and helped maintain Jeffrey's standard by intimidation, by intimidating the girls, so this was very much a joint effort."

Ms Maxwell could not be reached for comment but has previously denied any involvement in or knowledge of Epstein's abuse. ( BBC )

But the American media is still not interested in Ghislaine.

What the American mainstream media always willfully forgets is that Ghislaine Maxwell is the key person and mastermind behind the whole pedo sex trafficking operation.

The key role of Ghislaine is not surprising. After all, her father was an Israeli super spy, Robert Maxwell.

But perhaps this is the very reason why the American media is not interested.

For years Ghislaine has been at the center of a vast pedophile sex trafficking network. But still to this day the American police has never dared to even interview her.

She simply knows too much.

In the wake of - and in spite of - his death, France began a preliminary investigation of Epstein for rape, etc., last year. He had an apartment in Paris and was returning to the US from there when he was arrested in New Jersey in July, 2019.

[Jul 09, 2020] Prince Andrew's Cousin Says Ghislaine Maxwell Has Secret Video Of Him by Steve Watson

Jul 09, 2020 | www.zerohedge.com

Authored by Steve Watson via Summit News,

An acquaintance of Ghislaine Maxwell has told reporters that the socialite has secret video footage of Prince Andrew that was filmed during her time as Jeffrey Epstein's so called 'madam'.

Christina Oxenberg told The Sun that Andrew, the British Queen's son, "is one of many johns, all of whom were videotaped by Ghislaine."

"He is not a victim here, but Ghislaine was never his friend, she was taping him," Oxenberg added, noting that "Friends don't tape friends."

Oxenberg is the daughter of Princess Elizabeth of Yugoslavia, making her Prince Andrew's cousin.

She told reporters that she believes Maxwell is seeking to trade information with the FBI, and possibly the videos to save herself.

"I think she thinks she can get out, obviously she's planning on trading [information]," Oxenberg said.

Oxenberg says she was interviewed by the FBI last year in regards to the case, and that she is willing to testify against Maxwell.

The report claims that the royal said Maxwell previously bragged to her about obtaining underage girls under Epstein's influence.

"I will definitely be there to remind her that in '97, she told me copious amounts," Oxenberg said.

It is not clear if Oxenberg is the same person who was cited anonymously in another report this week claiming that Maxwell has secret sex tapes that "could implicate some twisted movers and shakers."

"If Ghislaine goes down, she's going to take the whole damn lot of them with her," the source told the Daily Mail .

As we highlighted last week, a lawyer for one of Epstein's accusers thinks that Ghislaine Maxwell could reveal a "bigger name" involved in Epstein's pedophile network in order to secure a plea deal following her arrest.

"I'm sure that Ghislaine's attorneys will try to make a deal where she speaks out about a bigger name to get reduced charges for herself," said Lisa Bloom

----------------

When I was a kid I used to drive my father back and forth from Sanford, Maine to Grenier, AFB at Manchester, NH. He had a retirement job at the base (long closed) as the budget analyst for the facility. He never learned to drive. Central New Hampshire is a forested and somewhat gloomy land both east and west of Manchester. Bradford looks to be 40 miles NW of Manchester. I never had any reason to go west of Manchester into the center of the state. All of central NH is a land of coniferous forest and tiny villages like Bradford. South of Manchester the scene is dominated by immigrants from Massachusetts centered around a big town, Nashua. The actual locals in greater NH refer to them as Massholes. They moved to NH to escape MA taxes.

A million bucks for 156 acres of pine and fir with a nice house and the wondrous barn mentioned above? Sounds like a great deal to me, even in an all cash deal. A million dollars wouldn't get you anything like that where I live at Alexandria in Occupied, Virginia now ruled by the Quisling Northam. So, who set up the dummy LLC through which the property was acquired? A law firm, right? And who found the place? Were they steered to this property by the FBI?

The FBI in NY gave a presser and handed out a memo on the "score." Why the NY City office of the FBI? My WAG would be that they have had one or more sources on the books in NY City telling them where she has been since her "disappearance," and keeping them up to date on her activities and location. Who? There must be at least one lawyer in the mix. A lot of lawyers would "rat out" a client in a heartbeat if approached by the FBI. They know the cost of refusing to cooperate.

The FBI brought the NYPD as well as the local flics to make this arrest? Why did they do that? I just checked in Wikipedia and Bradford has not been ceded to NY City.

My uber WAG would now be that she probably never left the US. In an age of digital passport controls at frontiers it is not easy to move around internationally without being reported electronically. I suppose she could have sneaked across the Canada/US border in northern New England, but she doesn't look the type for spooking around in some little border town or hiking through the Maine woods. And, the Canadians would have noticed her when she arrived at one of their airports even by private jet.

No, on balance I would bet that all the stuff about her residence in Israel or France is probably hot air, but I could be wrong. pl

She could have escaped the country. Carlos Ghosn had escaped prosecution in Japan by hiding in a box taken aboard a private plane, eventually finding his way to Lebanon.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-50964040

Perhaps she felt she was untouchable. Or maybe Israel, where she would have been protected against extradition to the US, wasn't safe for her.

What I still can't grasp is the whole Berman/Clayton situation. There's no question she could have been arrested sooner. It seems Berman was blocking her arrest. Also there is a lot of resistance to Clayton's nomination. Even Senator Lindsay Graham, who has become something of an ally to Trump, has come out in opposition to it. It's very strange.

You aren't the only person thinking this strongly enough to write about it:

http://stateofthenation.co/?p=19070

It has enough irregularity in it to remind me of JFKjr plane crash. If she truly has the same goods as JE, then it would require days of testimony and corroboration, months even, along with locating and reviewing said actual physical evidence. It would not take a few days post-arrest; legal matters simply take forever at this level, and the more lawyers the longer it takes whether civil or criminal.

This reeks to me of a cover story for someone who had their ears pinned back months or years ago by one team or the other.

walrus , 08 July 2020 at 04:28 PM

I don't know but I suspect she calculated that she was safer in America than elsewhere. I think she was probably concerned about the British more than anyone else. Prince Andrew is a chump, but a Royal one.

I would expect that the FBI and perhaps her lawyers also lulled her into a false sense of security. - designed to keep her "within range" and perhaps over time she becomes careless enough to reveal the location of hidden evidence.

In my darkest moods I suspect she now needs to be "dealt with", perhaps to remove spoiling opportunities with one or more Democratic party candidates.

I am concerned for her safety. I am especially concerned that she be kept totally isolated from the rest of the prison population. We had a "super grass" crook - Carl Williams in jail here. He was singing about judicial corruption. He was inexplicably transferred to a unit shared with two homicidal inmates who murdered him. I say "inexplicable" since the prison governor responsible then went deer hunting near here and has not been seen since.

"What I still can't grasp is the whole Berman/Clayton situation. There's no question she could have been arrested sooner." Of course you "grasp it." Democrat big-wigs will be implicated if she talks. It is amusing how much this affair resembles the TeeVee Series "Billions."

[Jul 07, 2020] Ghislaine Maxwell Goes From Posh Hideout To COVID-Stricken 'Third World Country' NY Jail -

Is she a player or a patsi? What is the role of Wexler in this story?
Jul 07, 2020 | www.zerohedge.com

For the first time in her privileged life, ex-socialite Ghislaine Maxwell is living in conditions described by one judge in 2016 as similar to a 'prison on Turkey or a Third World Country.'

The 58-year-old Maxwell was arrested after hiding out in a lavish four-bedroom, four-bathroom mansion in New Hampshire, which Bloomberg notes sports views of the Mount Sunapee foothills from every room.

https://www.youtube.com/embed/4uGgHrM1URw

After being initially booked in New Hampshire on multiple charges related to trafficking underage girls for the sexual gratification of dead pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, Maxwell was transferred on Monday to New York's Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC) - home to over 1,600 male and female detainees which was built at the turn of the 20th century and used during both world wars, according to Bloomberg .

No one wants to go to jail, but the conditions described at the MDC have been the subject of numerous complaints and scrutiny that rival the rat-infested federal lockup in Lower Manhattan where Epstein was held.

In early 2019, hundreds of inmates at the MDC were locked shivering in their cells for at least a week after an electrical fire knocked out power in the building. The inmates spent some of the coldest days of that winter in darkness, largely without heat and hot water. - Bloomberg

One inmate, Derrilyn Needham, has been incarcerated at MDC since last November along with 30 other women who slept in bunk beds. Needham said social distancing was difficult, and that for three days starting April 23, the women were on "lockdown on our bunk beds, not able to leave our bunks except to use the bathroom or shower.

She added that they hadn't been given gloves, hand sanitizer or disinfectant wipes - and that despite symptoms of COVID-19, the assistant warden said she couldn't receive a test for the virus.

According to The Intercept , " The number of reported coronavirus symptoms far exceeds the number of tests MDC has performed ." In May, the facility came under fire for allegedly destroying medical records "as part of a deliberate effort to obscure the number of incarcerated people infected with the coronavirus."

The report , filed Thursday as part of a putative class-action lawsuit by people held in custody at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, casts doubt on assertions by the Bureau of Prisons , which runs the jail, and the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District, which serves as counsel for the bureau. The Bureau of Prisons and federal prosecutors have insisted in court that the situation at the jail is under control. But the medical examiner's report -- which contradicted prison assertions that Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines were being followed -- suggests that the six people in custody who have tested positive for the disease likely represent the tip of the iceberg . - The Intercept

After the pandemic began, the detention center was deemed "ill-equipped" to deal with the spread of COVID-19 by former chief medical officer for the city's jails, Homer Venters, who says he's "concerned about the ongoing health and safety of the population," and slammed administrators for failing to adequately deal with the pandemic.

That said, MDC has been on the receiving end of criticism over its conditions long before coronavirus was an issue.

Cheryl Pollak, the federal magistrate in Brooklyn, has repeatedly voiced concerns about the MDC after reviewing a report by the National Association of Women Judges, who visited the facility and found that 161 female inmates were housed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in two large rooms that lacked windows, fresh air or sunlight and weren't allowed out to exercise. - Bloomberg

"Some of these conditions wouldn't surprise me if we were dealing with a prison in Turkey or a Third World Country," Pollak said during a 2016 hearing. "It's hard for me to believe it's going on in a federal prison."

Multiple charges related to trafficking underage girls for the sexual gratification of dead pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. These charges barely scratch the surface of what Maxwell and Epstein were guilty of.

Anyone who thinks "Barr finally let the hammer down!" needs to ask themselves, if Maxwell is Public Enemy #1, why would they casually, matter of factly, ho-humly, stick her in the same lousy facility where 1. her partner Epstein mysterious croaked, and which 2. just happens to be filled with Corvid-19 cases. Why not stick her in an army base a la Frankie Five Angels? (Oops, that didn't work out either). Or some cell in Oklahoma? It's an obvious set up for her demise (though only a real crank would think the whole Corvid-19 was a set-up for this from the start.....) Oh, and by the way, that obviously isn't Ghislaine Maxwell.

Think outside the box:

If you wanted TOTAL and complete cooperation from Epstein's close associate, why not threaten her with the same fate as her boss? In fact, perhaps Epstein was sacrificed simply to put pressure on Maxwell.

She is the literal walking-talking black book who knows everything and everyone. She knows more than Epstein. She set everything up. Ever wonder why she stayed in the states? My guess, the Feds got to her 12 months ago and have been monitoring her calls since then. They have already worked out a plea bargain with her. And the woman seen going into a lock up? A double or Maxwell before they walk her out the front door and into a cab.

NOTHING can stop what is coming. NOTHING.

Clever deceptive wording. She's been arrested on charges "related to" sex trafficking underage kids. Not charges FOR sex trafficking of underage kids. If she got a parking ticket while kidnapping, raping, and killing a child, that parking ticket would be "related to" the murder.

Look how she is not charged for the sex trafficking itself! This is obviously a limited hangout. The documentary got the general public asking why she was living high on the hog, scot free.

So this is to placate the public more than tighten any screws.

After a life of luxury and then a night in the New York's Metropolitan Detention Center, you know she's told her lawyer to start wheeling and dealing to get her out of that hellhole. She'll be giving everybody up and handing over everything she has on the people who came through all of Epstein's properties. Maxwell couldn't make it through a year at this place or any federal penitentiary. With the entire world knowing what her proclivities are she'll be licking the pussies of every inmate locked up where ever she's sent.

Racheal Chandler Is The Centerpiece *PizzaGate

Anson Moore

Racheal Chandler is a centerpiece for the entire deep state elite. She connects the Clintons and their Foundation, Jeffrey Epstein, The Royal Family , Hollywood & Government Leaders around the world. She references Spirit Cooking.

Trying her to Marina Abramovic and PizzaGate. She was photographed with Prince Andrew and Ghislaine Maxwell. Hollywood connects her to James Rothschild. Through Paris Hilton's sister Nicky marrying him. Her family owning the Los Angeles Times for over 100 Years, and getting her start at the Standard Hotel Chain.

So not only should Prince Andrew be worryed the list of names run long. The sick ties with Epstein & Ghislaine should open eyes. The best is yet to come the elite time is up.

..it's a thin line...

...

We immediately noticed a peculiarity about the indictment document provided by Strauss. It covered only a brief 4-year period, running from 1994 through 1997. One of the main accusers of Maxwell, Virginia (Roberts) Giuffre, has credibly indicated in previous court filings that Epstein and Maxwell sexually abused her "between 1999 and 2002." That should lengthen the scope of the indictment by five additional years.

...

The Southern District of New York, home to some of the biggest and most powerful Wall Street banks and their attorneys, who cycle in and out of jobs in that office, might have a strong reason to want to keep Giuffre's claims out of this case. Giuffre has stated the following in a previous court filing against Epstein:

"In addition to being continually exploited to satisfy Defendant's every sexual whim, Plaintiff was also required to be sexually exploited by Defendant's adult male peers, including royalty, politicians, academicians, businessmen, and/or other professional and personal acquaintances most of these acts of abuse occurred during a time when Defendant knew that Plaintiff was approximately 15, 16 and 17 years old "

Indicative of how things work in the Southern District of New York, Maxwell's lawyer in the case is Christian Everdell of Cohen & Gresser. Everdell spent almost a decade as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in that office before arriving at Cohen & Gresser in 2017.

There is an abundance of evidence to be suspicious of how the U.S. Attorney's office is handling this case. It is 14 years that the Justice Department has been sitting on the case against Maxwell.

The Palm Beach, Florida Police Chief, Michael Reiter, handed a deeply investigated case against Epstein and Maxwell over to the FBI in July of 2006 according to the intrepid reporting of Julie K. Brown in the Miami Herald in November of 2018. Brown indicated that it took just eight months of FBI interviews for the U.S. Attorney's office in Florida to have a 53-page Federal indictment ready to file against Epstein involving sexual assaults against dozens of underage girls.

But the indictment was never filed. A "deal" was worked out by then U.S. Attorney, Alex Acosta, and Epstein's well-connected lawyers. Federal charges were dropped against Epstein and he was allowed to plead guilty to only Florida state charges: one count of soliciting sex from a minor and one count of soliciting sex from an adult woman. Epstein was able to serve just 13 months in jail while also given a work release program to sit in his well-appointed office 12 hours a day, and driven around by his chauffeured limo. The deal was so outrageously constructed that it even denied his victims knowledge of the terms of the deal.

It was only because of the public outrage that was unleashed by Brown's reporting in the Miami Herald and her emotional personal video interviews with Epstein's victims, that the Justice Department was forced to bring new charges in 2019. Those charges were brought by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York, the same office that just indicted Maxwell.

Unedited - WTF made into f-li-ck !

Ghislaine Maxwell seems to be going through hell right now, only she doesn't want you to know it danielgbates Jul 4

'What the flick is going on seriously, what the flick', said the English woman's voice. It was minutes before the first appearance for Ghislaine Maxwell at federal court in New Hampshire was due to start and the voice unexpectedly came on the dial-in line for journalists. The voice appeared extremely upset and said: 'I don't understand'. She repeated it again but broke down in tears and couldn't finish the word. I heard her say 'I'm trying' but all you could hear was sobbing. A court officer came on and said: 'Please mute your lines, people' and she was gone. By the time the hearing began she was a different person, calm and composed, her working class accent replaced by the familiar cut glass English voice telling the world: I'm in control.

But what we heard moments before appeared to be Ghislaine Maxwell caught on a hot mic, unaware that dozens of journalists, including me, were listening in to her. She sounded confused and in complete disbelief.

For somebody who has lived in privilege her whole life, you can imagine that this did not compute. Plucked from her $1m, 156-acre New Hampshire estate at 8.30am by FBI agents, she was now appearing in a federal court via video link from the Merrimack county jail. How could this happen to me. This isn't right. I don't understand, or as she apparently put it: 'Seriously, what the flick?'

You can't help but feel that Maxwell is having a taste of what her alleged victims have been going through for years. A feeling that you are no longer in control of your own life, a feeling that your sense of power has been stripped away from you. Both sound horrible and like nothing anyone should ever go through but, as her alleged victims no doubt see it, they couldn't happen to a nicer person.

I really hope that the federal authorities ensure that Maxwell lives to face a trial. After such a long wait her victims deserve that much, and she deserves due process (an unpopular view among some, perhaps, but everyone deserves it, even terrorists). Maxwell denies all the allegations that she was Epstein's 'madam' who arranged underage girls for him to have sex with, and sometimes took part in the abuse. But the evidence against her is compelling and you just have to look at the flight logs from Epstein's planes to raise serious questions. How will she answer this? 'Tell me Miss Maxwell, what were you doing flying 815 times between 1995 and 2007 on a private jet called the Lolita Express with a man who in 2009 became a registered sex offender who had admitted having raped underage girls?'

I suspect that the timing of Maxwell's arrest has to do with the compensation scheme for Epstein's victims starting taking applications a week before, on June 25. Under the programme, victims of Epstein can submit their cases for money from his estate with all $650m apparently up for grabs and no upper cap. But there is one catch: the victims have to stay any civil action against Epstein's estate in order to get the money. Until Maxwell was charged it meant they had to make the awful choice between compensation and chasing justice through the civil courts. That was essentially a re-run of Epstein's 2008 sweetheart plea deal only this time they had to give their approval to it (which in some ways is worse). But now Maxwell has been indicted there is no conflict: they can stay their civil cases and watch as Maxwell's case works its way through the courts. It must be a huge relief for them all.

The two perjury charges against Maxwell show that her arrogance has been one of the things that brought her down. Epstein invoked his Fifth Amendment during every deposition and walked out when asked about the shape of penis (egg shaped, if you're curious -- you have attorney Spencer Kuvin to thank for that gem). Maxwell wasn't as crafty and at one point banged a table in frustration at the 'lies' being told about her. She lost her head and lost her cool and said 'I don't know what you're talking about' when asked if Epstein had a scheme to recruit underage girls. Asked if she knew Epstein used sex toys in sexual activities, she said 'no'. According to federal prosecutors, these were both lies, and she was talking under oath. Why didn't she just keep her mouth shut and plead the Fifth? To me it's baffling.

2 of 2 !

One of the really sweet ironies about Epstein killing himself (at least, that's what the autopsy said) is that it almost certainly made Maxwell's arrest more likely. Much has been written about how Epstein did his best to shaft his victims by setting up a trust to manage his financial affairs in the USVI two days before he died. That didn't work out because was we now know they could get all his (declared) money in compensation. But the real kicker is that with his death the no.1 target of the FBI's investigation became Maxwell. Would she have been arrested if he was still alive? Maybe, but it was far less likely.

With his final act Epstein stuck a knife in the back of the person who was one his girlfriend and right hand woman. That's loyalty for you.

Bearing that in mind why wouldn't Maxwell talk to the prosecutors to save herself? It's not like Epstein is still around for her to protect, and even if he was, do you think she'd care? And if Maxwell is talking then, oh boy, that makes this case even more interesting. In a mafia investigation you'd get the guys lower down the ladder first and them to build a case against the boss. But if you've already got the boss, who do you use her to get?

Ghislaine (S is silent) Maxwell is the youngest of ten siblings (two of whom have passed away.)

Father was Jewish (non-observant,) her mother, Anglican. All children were raised Anglican by their not-so-strict mother. The children enjoyed a wildly privileged upbringing akin to that of the Royals.

Ghislaine's father, the 6'4" Robert Maxwell, led a colorful life but over-reached and his publishing empire began to crack. He died in 1991 after falling overboard from his 180' motor yacht, "Lady Ghislaine," (named for his favorite child.) He suffered a heart attack (probably while struggling to climb back aboard) and drowned.

Ghislaine was said to be the apple of his eye.

The fate of Ghislaine is sad, really. It didn't have to be that way. She fell under the spell of Epstein. Epstein was the wealthy father figure coveted by Ghislaine to fill in the void left by her father's death.

Growing up, she was "Daddy's precious girl." After the death of her father in '91 when she was 29, she longed for that bond of closeness and security which she saw in surrogate Epstein. But Epstein used her and abused her for his own gratification and surely coerced her into fulfilling the "pimp" role that Epstein required to live the prurient life he demanded.

Ghislaine is not without significant guilt but she was not the ringleader; that was Epstein. I predict she won't be sentenced as severely as many would like. And rightly so because Epstein prodded her into doing much of, if not all of what she did that was criminal. She needed Epstein; he was her oxygen.

That said, the crime of pedophilia and corruption of minors is a reprehensible crime for which she must pay.

The first New York City court appearance for Ghislaine Maxwell may be Friday, July 10

By Robert Willmann

(Update, Tuesday, 7 July: The hearing is now set for Tuesday morning, 14 July)--

https://turcopolier.typepad.com/files/gmaxwell_letter_hearing_to_be_14july.pdf

After being arrested in Bradford, New Hampshire last Thursday, before the Fourth of July weekend, Ghislaine Maxwell, charged with helping Jeffrey Epstein abuse underage girls, may have her arraignment, initial appearance, and bail hearing in Manhattan, New York City on Friday afternoon, 10 July.

In a letter dated and filed in the federal court on Sunday, 5 July, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York (SDNY) said that when in New Hampshire Maxwell had what would have been a brief appearance before a judge. This is required after an arrest, and is to occur "without unnecessary delay" [1].--

https://turcopolier.typepad.com/files/gmaxwell_letter_initial_appearance.pdf

The government asked that Maxwell be detained in custody until a trial, in a paper filed the day of the arrest. The motion for detention contains a few items of interest. She was born in France and is a citizen of and appears to have passports for at least France, Britain, and the U.S. The request for detention says: " Based on the Government's investigation to date, the Government has identified more than 15 different bank accounts held by or associated with the defendant from 2016 to the present, and during that same period, the total balances of those accounts have ranged from a total of hundreds of thousands of dollars to more than $20 million"--

https://turcopolier.typepad.com/files/gmaxwell_motion_to_detain.pdf

The criminal indictment of Maxwell, which was unsealed the day of the arrest on 2 July, charges a curious time period of only "at least in or about 1994, up to and including at least in or about 1997", and refers to only three victims--

https://turcopolier.typepad.com/files/gmaxwell_indictment.pdf

The very limited written criminal charge can of course be seen as an opening gambit by the prosecution, since it can be expanded in a superseding indictment.

The letter filed with the court clerk identifies Christian Everdell as the current attorney for Maxwell; he had been a federal prosecutor in the SDNY for nearly 10 years [2]. In court documents a familiar surname appears as one of the SDNY co-prosecutors for the federal government -- Maurene Comey -- who was in the same role in the aborted prosecution of Jeffrey Epstein. The legal communities in New York City and Washington D.C. are two little clubs that sometimes tend to overlap.

If a court hearing takes place Friday, it will probably duplicate some of what happened in New Hampshire on 2 July. The big issue at this time is whether Ghislaine Maxwell will remain in custody or be released on bail under some specific conditions. Her arrest was described in an article in the British Daily Mail newspaper [3].

Documents from the 2 July court proceeding in New Hampshire have now been filed in the SDNY. Here are three of the 33 pages: the court clerk's docket sheet from Concord, New Hampshire, and the arrest warrant, which was authorized at the courthouse in White Plains, New York, and not in Manhattan! The pages that are excluded are the indictment, the order allowing a hearing by video and telephone conference, the commitment order to send Maxwell to the SDNY, and three pages that basically duplicate the clerk's docket sheet--

https://turcopolier.typepad.com/files/gmaxwell_new_hampshire_court_docs.pdf

The case is multi-sided. Ghislaine's father, Robert Maxwell, was a publisher who also was caught up in financial machinations. He died under mysterious circumstances in 1991 when he was found in the water outside of his large boat in the area of the Canary Islands. There were rumors he had relationships with government intelligence agencies. He was given a large funeral in Israel attended by Israeli politicians and was buried in a cemetery there. Ghislaine's close relationship with Jeffrey Epstein is part of the factual foundation of the pending case. Epstein had been protected from criminal liability by the U.S. government through the Department of Justice which became evident in state and federal criminal cases developed against him in Florida that resulted in a disgraceful plea deal in Florida state court and in an equally disgraceful and concealed non-prosecution agreement with the federal government. Only through the determination of Florida attorney Bradley Edwards and Utah lawyer Paul Cassell, a former federal judge, was the perfidy of the federal government and Justice Department revealed through their lawsuit against the government under the Crime Victims' Rights Act--

Jeffery Epstein made some court appearances in his criminal case in the SDNY before he was said to have been found dead in the Manhattan federal Metropolitan Corrections Center from an "apparent suicide", when cameras were not working, blah blah blah. That explanation was rightfully laughed out of town. In terms of probability, Epstein was either murdered in the jail or was helped to escape.

And now here comes Ghislaine Maxwell.

I read that one of the victims listened to the arraignment on the telephone and a woman with a British accent could be heard sobbing and wailing in background and saying "How could this happen? How can this be?" Sounds like she thought she had her stay in NH "wired up."

IMO, anyone expecting that the plutocrat pedo ring will be busted will be sorely disappointed and is not paying attention to justice in contemporary America!

Sir Epstein was reportedly at the epicenter of a pedo ring for decades. He clearly engaged in all this with impunity for a long while. Including getting a sweetheart deal from the US attorney in Miami who landed up as Trump's Labor Secretary. This indictment is for the period 1994-97 so far. It would imply that Prince Andrew and Dershowitz are off the hook. Also, Virginia Roberts Guiffre's sex trafficking claims are not part of this indictment, while a judge has ordered her to destroy evidence. She also has a defamation case against Ghislaine Maxwell.

Robert, thanks for keeping us up to speed with the legal details.

Do you have an opinion on whether count three's mention of co-conspirators may be significant, or the fact that the Public Corruption Unit are handling the case?

Colonel, my first thought when I heard the story of the sobbing woman with a British accent was that it could easily have be staged, so as to give the impression of justice being done. Cynicism is hard to escape in this case, though I try to keep an open mind.

"I can't judge Prince Andrew; we've all been young once," Jordan's Prince Hassan told an English interviewer. I'm not sure whether that's a barbed comment or not given that the Duke is scarcely in his first youth.

"Andrew is naive and unworldly, a product of the royal bubble." says another scandal sheet. I suspect he may well be innocent of everything except naivety.

Naivety in the Epstein circle could lead to a lot of trouble. I'm surprised the Palace establishment let one of their charges out without a minder. Bit late now.

Let's hope the Federal Detention Center in Brooklyn is more secure than the one in Manhattan where Epstein was held. What about Epstein's other accomplices that helped to recruit underage girls? Maxwell was just one of several.

Wiki entry on Maxwell says that she also associated with Kevin Spacey a self-confessed a$$ bandit. So the question arises, was she also pimping out underage poolboys?

I read an interesting point I can't really evaluate on my own, which is that the prosecution is coming out of the FBI's Public Corruption Unit, which is a department specifically designed to deal with issues arising from prosecution of politicians. Reportedly they suss out subtle quid-pro-quos, rarely settle, and indicates there could be more interesting layers to this case.

Jul 03, 2020 | www.unz.com

Epstein brought CIA drug smugglers Southern Air Transport to Columbus. Epstein at Bear Stearns ran brokerage errands for the CIA money launderers and pimps of BCCI. Epstein bragged about being CIA and Ohio state VIPs believed him.

Epstein skated for the Tower Financial ponzi scheme that topped up CIA's covert-crime slush fund after CIA proprietary BCCI stole everybody's money and blew up. Epstein got bankrolled by CIA's famous secret agent Adnan Kashoggi. Epstein smuggled an enormously illegal NYPD shotgun in through British customs, using CIA agent Ed Wilson's old trick for impressing foreign VIPs. Federal prosecutors convict 99.8% of their perps, but one let Epstein off the hook for his giant pedo whorehouse because he was told Epstein belonged to intelligence.

You would not have thought it was possible, but Epstein with his hilariously fake hedge fund is more blatantly CIA than Imran Awan. So clearly we need six thousand more internet bullshitters screaming about pervy Mossad blackmailers – CIA is hopelessly busted for everybody with a 3-digit IQ.

[Jul 03, 2020] Ghislaine Maxwell Arrested In New Hampshire

Jul 02, 2020 | www.zerohedge.com

Update (1215ET): Acting US Attorney Audrey Strauss said that "this case against Ghislaine Maxwell is a prequel to the earlier case that we brought against Jeffrey Epstein,"

" Maxwell lied because the truth, as alleged, was almost unspeakable. Maxwell enticed minor girls, got them to trust her, then delivered them into the trap that she and Epstein had set for them. She pretended to be a woman they could trust..."

" We were working hard on this investigation this past year. It's not easy to put together a case that goes back that far. There's nothing other than we did the investigation, and we were ready at this time to proceed."

Strauss said that the firing of Former US Attorney Geoffrey Berman did not affect timing of this arrest "at all". We will likely never know one way or another but the timing is definitely interesting.

Finally, asked about a royal connection, Strauss declines to update on the status of anyone in an investigation but says that she "would welcome Prince Andrew coming in to talk with us."

"We would like to have the benefit of his statement," Strauss said, adding their doors remain open.

We will not be holding our breath.

Additionally, FBI New York Assistant Director in Charge William Sweeney, Jr. said investigators have been discreetly keeping tabs on Maxwell's location and found that she had "slithered away" to a "gorgeous" home in Bradford, New Hampshire, where she was arrested Thursday without incident.

Having been decidedly off-the-radar for months since the controversial 'suicide' of Jeffrey Epstein, NBC New York reports that Ghislaine Maxwell, has been arrested by the FBI and charged by federal prosecutors.

Multiple senior law enforcement officials reportedly said the British socialite and heiress was arrested in New Hampshire on Epstein-related charges and is expected to appear in a federal court later today .

The long-time friend and confidante of Jeffrey Epstein was alleged to have helped Epstein groom teen girls for sex with the rich and powerful.

As Adam Klasfeld reports, the indictment reads that:

"[Ghislaine] Maxwell assisted, facilitated and contributed to Jeffrey Epstein's abuse of minor girls by, among other things, helping Epstein to recruit, groom, and ultimately abuse victims ...

"The victims were as young as 14."

"In particular, between in or about 1994 and in or about 1997, MAXWELL was in an intimate relationship with Epstein and also was paid by Epstein to manage his various properties."

Ghislaine has been accused by three women of procuring and training young girls to perform massage and sexual acts on Epstein and his associates.

Virginia Giuffre (previously named Virginia Roberts), one of Epstein's alleged victims, claimed in a civil lawsuit that Maxwell "recruited" her into Epstein's orbit, where she was forced to have sex with Epstein and his powerful friends, including Prince Andrew.

Giuffre asserts in her complaint that Maxwell, the sole defendant in the suit and the daughter of late publishing magnate Robert Maxwell, routinely recruited underaged girls for Epstein and was doing so when she approached the $9-an-hour locker room attendant at Mar-a-Lago in 1999 about giving massages to the wealthy investment banker.

Giuffre alleges that Maxwell ultimately trained her in how to give "massages" to Epstein that involved sex acts and, essentially, prostitution . When Maxwell publicly denied the allegations and called Giuffre a liar in 2015, that gave her the opening to head to federal court and file the defamation suit now headed for trial. - Politico

Maxwell's Her new luxury abode is only a short five-minute drive from Epstein's £7million pad on Avenue Foch (pictured)

In May we noted that the accused 'madam' was reportedly holed up in a luxury apartment on Paris's Avenue Matignon - just a five minute drive from the dead pedophile's $8.6 million flat.

Maxwell "is moving locations every month to keep private investigators off her tail and is ­staying at the residences of trusted colleagues and contacts," according to a source.

"She wants to remain in France for as long as she can to take advantage of extradition laws and has a huge network of contacts willing to keep her hidden," they added. " Under French law anyone born on French soil is safe from extradition to another country, regardless of the alleged crime. "

As Esquire's Gabrielle Bruney explained in May, Maxwell is the youngest of Elisabeth and Robert Maxwell's nine children, and was born in France in 1961 . The family lived in an English mansion, and her father was the founder of a media empire and served in Parliament . Maxwell attended one of the UK's most exclusive boarding schools and then Oxford University. As members of British high society, Maxwell mingled with some of the nation's most celebrated families, and became friends with Prince Andrew .

Her father died in 1991, after falling off his yacht and drowning. It's been speculated that his death may have been a suicide , as on the day he died he was due to meet with the Bank of England over the matter of his being in default on millions in loans. After his death, the British media dubbed him the " crook of the century ," when it was revealed that he'd taken hundreds of millions of pounds from his employees pension funds. Maxwell told one news outlet after her father's death that she felt he was murdered .

She moved to the United States the year of her father's death, and soon met Jeffrey Epstein. The relationship marked a second reversal of fortunes for Maxwell, whose family lost much of its wealth after her father's death. In 2000, she moved into a $4.95 million Manhattan townhouse purchased "by an anonymous limited liability company, with an address that matches the office of J. Epstein & Co. Representing the buyer was Darren Indyke, Mr. Epstein's longtime lawyer." She was his companion for years, managing his households and introducing him to her society friends

Maxwell and her father in 1984.

According to a lawsuit she filed this year in hopes of winning funds from the late financier's estate, "While under Epstein's employ, Maxwell was responsible for managing Epstein's properties located in New York, Paris, Florida, New Mexico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands."

"During the course of their relationship, including while Maxwell was in Epstein's employ," the lawsuit reads , "Epstein promised Maxwell that he would support her financially. Epstein made these promises to Maxwell repeatedly, both in writing and in conversation."

However, a 2003 Vanity Fair profile of Epstein denied that Maxwell was an employee.

After Epstein's 2008 conviction for soliciting prostitution from an underage girl, the two appeared to end their public association. In 2009, accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre filed a civil suit against Epstein accusing him and Maxwell of grooming her into their alleged sex trafficking ring. However, Maxwell remained a fixture in New York society until around 2015. In 2012, she founded an environmental nonprofit called The TerraMar project, which folded in late 2019.

Epstein with Maxwell in 1995

Though multiple survivors have alleged that Maxwell participated in Epstein's alleged crimes, she's never been criminally charged. One thing that could stymie potential efforts to level charges against Maxwell is the infamous 2008 plea deal that Epstein struck with the US Attorney for Miami, Alexander Acosta , which found him serving just 13 months in prison after initially facing charges that could have garnered him a life sentence. Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich producer Joe Berlinger described the deal to Esquire as "unprecedented, unheard of sweetheart deal" that "included a non-prosecution agreement for named and unnamed co-conspirators."

In April, an appeals court upheld the 2007 deal, writing in its opinion that the decision was "not a result we like, but it's the result we think the law requires."

Maxwell at a 2016 event.

Maxwell is currently suing Epstein's estate for money for her legal fees, and for the price of private security, alleging that her " prior employment relationship " with Epstein has caused to her be subjected to death threats.

As Jonathan Turley notes , frankly, as a criminal defense lawyer, I am surprised that Maxwell risked returning to the United States. She was believed to be living in Paris. It was well-known that the Justice Department was pursuing the case, including demands to interview Prince Andrew.

Her arrest may be unnerving for figures like Prince Andrew. She would be the ultimate cooperating witness if she decided to cooperate on broader criminal inquiries. Giuffre and others have alleged that she was the primary procurer of young girls for Epstein to abuse.

Such prosecutions are not easy given the passage of time. However, the government clearly has live witnesses like Giuffre who might have a significant impact on a jury. The government would have to show more than her mere presence at these homes or parties.

Interestingly, Turley notes that the improper role played by the Justice Department in the original Epstein case deal may actually help it now with any prosecution of Maxwell.

Ghislaine Maxwell, arrested, in jail.

Why now?

Southern District of New York US Attorney Audrey Strauss says crimes they are prosecuting are for years
1994 to 1997

Bill Clinton was president.

Don't laugh.

There is little information on how long the feds knew where she was, that they say was Bedford, NH.

According to NYMAG.com: [["An eye was being kept" on Maxwell was about all that Audrey Strauss]] said.

That is past tense, was being kept, assuming this is accurate information.

For how long, months, days, years, decades, all the way back to the 1970s?

CNN framed it this way:
[[FBI New York Assistant Director in Charge William Sweeney said that bureau officials "have been discreetly keeping tabs" on Maxwell who had "slithered away to a gorgeous property" in New Hampshire.

"We learned she had slithered away to a gorgeous property in New Hampshire, continuing to live a live a life of privilege while her victims continue to live with the trauma inflicted upon them years ago. We moved when we were ready and Ms. Maxwell was arrested without incident," he said.

Sweeney said that the FBI, along with the NYPD, arrested Maxwell in Bradford, New Hampshire, this morning without incident.

Audrey Strauss, acting US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, explained the process that led to Maxwell's arrest: "an eye was being kept, and information was being collected and then the indicted was just recently voted and filed and that is when we were able and prepared to move to arrest her."

Sweeney said that indictment alleges that from 1994 until 1997, Maxwell assisted Epstein in committing crimes against minors.]]

Strauss said and the indictment of Maxwell says, numerous times: 1994 to 1997 alleged crimes, aiding and abetting Epstein.

What is interesting, at least to me, in a news report by The Guardian – this report say that the DOJ said that Maxwell had the ability to get out of the US.

Which begs the questions: Then why the hell didn't she? The feds don't explain that part.

The Guardian:

The sprawling property in Bradford where she was arrested was purchased "through a carefully anonymized LLC", federal prosecutors said. Maxwell also has the money to flee if let out on bail, they maintained

Will we go from Epstein-gate, to Ukraine-gate, to Impeachment-gate, to Corona911-gate, to BLM-gate and now to Maxwell-gate – with perhaps a not so subtle attempt to piss all over Bill Clinton, since these alleged crimes were when he was commander in chief?

One other thing that may be related to the timing of this apprehension of her.

One of the alleged victims of Maxwell, who, according to a civil lawsuit filed against her in federal court in January. . . well, there was a "tiny problem."

The lawyer for the plaintiff, a Jane Doe, who claims to have been a young teen – when: "It all started in 1994 when 13-year-old Jane Doe met Epstein and Defendant Ghislaine Maxwell at a summer camp in Michigan. . . ."

This civil complaint says: "In 1997, while at Epstein's townhouse on 9 East 71st Street in the city of New York, Epstein asked the 17-year old Doe if she had a boyfriend. Doe replied that she did not. Epstein responded that when she did have a boyfriend she would want the sex to be 'good' and that she should 'get it over with already' meaning lose her virginity. Despite Doe's resistance, Epstein then pushed Doe down onto her stomach and raped her. From that point forward for several years in New York, Epstein raped Doe on multiple occasions. During Doe's time in New York, Maxwell also regularly facilitated Epstein's abuse of Doe and was frequently present when it occurred."

Any ways, the little problem was that: despite numerous times the Jane Doe lawyer tried to serve Maxwell, many times, this lawyer always came up empty.

But on June 15, the presiding federal judge ruled that. . . that because of certain judicial rules and because of the numerous attempts, the judge deemed that Maxwell had been served.

Doe's lawyer, the judge ruled, had done enough to demonstrate service; and thus the service attempts were deemed to have been "reasonably calculated to place Maxwell on notice of this suit and to constitute sufficient service under the circumstances presented here."

Thus Maxwell must respond, in a federal civil lawsuit brought by an alleged rape victim, that this plaintiff claims the pair [her and Epstein] betook against her.

https://www.courtlistener.com/recap/gov.uscourts.nysd.530336/gov.uscourts.nysd.530336.9.0.pdf

This mean Maxwell can be jailed for contempt of court, should she continue to run and hide; that is: ignore court orders in this civil lawsuit.

With today's jailing of her by the DOJ, on what looks like the same facts as in the civil case, [though it may not be; even if the 1994 to 1997 time period is the same] --- Maxwell's concerns about the civil case now pale in comparison with the new, criminal case against her. That is, assuming DOJ gets conviction.

The judge's June 15 order deeming her served in the civil case, however, meant that Maxwell would have been facing jail if she failed to appear according to any court orders requiring her to.

So one question I don't know answer to is: why did she remain in the US? [Or did she actually flee, and we just ain't being told that? I D K]

Would no other country take her, did she attempt to leave and was rebuffed [by who?] or did she want to stay here and take her chances, knowing that she could run, assuming she tried to, that is; but could not hide forever?

We'll see if Maxwell-gate can trump BLM-gate, and all manner of other sorts of Hang Outs happening before our eyes.

Lastly, I'm not saying it's a weak case; but, why her and why now, since they obviously had no trouble locating her, assuming they did not always have tabs on Maxwell.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0CoCBw4Tdts

If anyone actually has an actual photo of her being taken out of her New Hampshire house, I'd like to see them. For Roger Stone, we don't have to ask this question. Perhaps Judge Amy Berman should handle this case and/or share it with Judge Gilbert and Sullivan.

Eric Newhill , 03 July 2020 at 12:04 AM

The FBI already has all kinds of evidence on a lot of people from their raids on Epstein residences. Now they just need Maxwell so they can squeeze her a little to tie up any loose ends. She will then die and the loose ends will be taken care of and the democrat/globalists will be safe from prosecution. FBI destroys some of the evidence they obtained and uses other evidence against their enemies (e.g. Trump associates, democrats gone off the reservation, like Dershowitz)

Barbara Ann , 03 July 2020 at 08:22 AM

It seems likely to me that she was Epstein's Mossad controller. Walrus is right. It will be difficult to keep her alive. Why she fled to NH escapes me so far.

Posted by: Balint Somkuti, PhD | 03 July 2020 at 04:21 AM

Count Three in the indictment interests me, as it is the only one mentioning third party defendants. If it wasn't for this I'd assume the whole thing was scoped so as to limit any fallout beyond Ghislaine herself.

"GHISLAINE MAXWELL, the defendant, Jeffrey Epstein, and others known and unknown , willfully and knowingly did combine, conspire, confederate, and agree together and with each other to commit an offense against the United States, to wit, transportation of minors, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 2423 (a)." (emphasis mine)

I'd like to hear Robert Willmann's view on the significance of this, combined with the pertinence of the fact that the SDNY's Public Corruption Unit is handling the case.

This, combined with the fact that she was arrested in the US, is (as of the time of writing) still alive and Barr's urgency in sacking Berman, gives me some hope that there is a real intention to go after someone else, perhaps higher up the food chain (Wexner?). Have Trump and Barr got a big surprise in store? I do hope so.

Yeah, Right , 03 July 2020 at 08:51 AM

I had read somewhere that she believed that Mossad had killed her father, so she may not have thought that Israel was a safer location.

Not sure. I don't think that she ever came out and openly accused Mossad of his death, but I do believe she is on record as claiming that her father was assassinated.

As for "why now", it may simply be that it has taken this long to track down and seize all the "insurance" documents that she had.

I certainly thought at the time that Epstein's days were numbered the moment the FBI raided his Manhattan mansion, in the sense that that the raid was undertaken to seize that all the videos and photos that he was relying on to keep himself safe.

Take those away from him = he is a goner. The same may be true of this woman.

turcopolier , 03 July 2020 at 11:58 AM

I do not know how reliable Ari Ben-Menashe is as a source, but, for what it is worth, he claims that Mossad was not the Israeli agency for which Epstein and the Maxwells worked.

From an article last month by Elizabeth Vos in 'Consortium News':

'In an interview with Consortium News, former Israeli intelligence officer Ari Ben-Menashe said Epstein did not work with Mossad. "Military intelligence was who he was working with," said Ben-Menashe. "Big difference," he said. "He never worked with Mossad, and Robert Maxwell never did, either. It was military intelligence."'

(See https://consortiumnews.com/2020/06/18/epstein-case-documentaries-wont-touch-tales-of-intel-ties/ .)

Be that as it may, it is not clear to me that Ghislaine Maxwell would have been any safer in Israel than in the U.S. If she is prudent, she will have followed the example of the former NKVD 'Resident' in Spain, Alexander Orlov. From his 'Wikipedia' entry:

'Meanwhile, the Great Purge continued as Stalin and his inner circle sought to exterminate all suspected enemies of the people. Orlov was alerted as close associates and friends were arrested, tortured and shot, one by one. In 1938, Orlov realised that he would soon be next. When he received orders from Moscow to report to a Soviet ship in Antwerp, Orlov was certain that he was about to be arrested. Instead of obeying, Orlov fled with his wife and daughter to Canada.

'Before leaving Paris, Orlov left two letters for the Soviet Ambassador, one for Stalin and one for NKVD chief Yezhov. He told them that he would reveal everything he knew about NKVD operations if any action was taken against him or his family. In a two-page attachment, Orlov listed the codenames of numerous illegals and moles operating in the West.'

(See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_Orlov_(Soviet_defector) .)

He kept his side of the bargain, and 'The Secret History of Stalin's Crimes' was only published after its subject's death in March 1953.

Epstein may well have died thanks to his being insufficiently suspicious. If Ghislaine Maxwell ever suffered from the same weakness, she must surely have been cured of it by now.

The Maxwell trial will be a carefully choreographed nothing burger ! The delay in bringing her to justice, was so as to plan and negotiate the details. To the satisfaction of all concerned.

Letting the likes of prince Andrew and Clinton's and Trump off the hook regarding any incriminating evedence. So who is running the show (answer) Israel and their lobby groups.

Q. What's on the table ? Power, money and territory! As always. This is harvest time for Israel I'm afraid !

Both Epstein and his spotter were nothing more than consumables that thought they were were players. I'm not sure what the tabloid interest in this pair of clowns is all about.

Ghislaine Maxwell and Les Wexner are the boss and Epstein was the CEO at their bidding. Wexner GAVE Epstein the Manhatten apartment. That is a five story large building and it was already fully fitted out with recording gear from the handover day. They don't come cheap. This was one of the biggest, deliberate global entrapment rackets the world has seen. Ghislaine was the handler and Wexner the financier and front man.

But I am just an observer and if you want the gritty stuff then tune in to Whitney Webb and listen to her take on this. She has been revealing an immense amount of evidence and links since Epstein was first arrested 3? years ago. I am about to do that myself.

I don't give a flat rock what the MSM thinks or does in this case.

The Maxwell trial for the show and the annexation in the background? With no cash allowed to flow to the axis of resistance (no banks, no planes, no Gulf expats enabled to bring in cash without the virus risk?).

The BBC article had an interesting snippet about Andrew, at the very end of the article: "Asked about the prince on Thursday, acting Attorney Strauss said: "I am not going to comment on anyone's status in this investigation but I will say that we would welcome Prince Andrew coming in to talk with us, we would like to have the benefit of his statement."

A source close to Prince Andrew's lawyers told BBC News: "The Duke's team is bewildered by the DoJ's [Department of Justice's] comments earlier today as we have twice reached out to them in the last month and have received no reply.""

Note how the operatives avoid my inquiry as to who owned the safe house and/or how Maxwell came to own it and who aided her in that endeavor? Now why would they avoid that most important question and change the subject and surround the inquiry with distracting nonsense? I'll let the few honest ones amongst you answer that question. It's an easy answer, fyi. Hey Gruff, I see you.

Accused Jeffrey Epstein Sex Crimes Accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell Arrested At $1 Million New Hampshire Home

Authorities said Thursday that Maxwell was caught at a 156-acre property in that town, where land records list just one lot of that size, on East Washington Road.

"The defendant appears to have been hiding on a 156-acre property acquired in an all-cash purchase in December 2019 (through a carefully anonymized LLC) in Bradford, New Hampshire, an area to which she has no other known connections," said a court filing by Manhattan federal prosecutors. An LLC is a limited liability corporation.

Other records show the buyer was Granite Reality LLC, whose listed manager is a Boston lawyer named Jeffrey Roberts.

Roberts did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The web site of his firm, Nutter McClennen & Fish, says that Roberts "chairs Nutter's Private Client Department and serves as a member of the firm's Executive Committee."

"His broad-based practice consists of estate planning for high net worth individuals," among other areas, according to the web site. Nutter, whose spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment, is located at the same Boston address as the mailing address of the LLC that bought the property.

Epstein was in deep with the Harvard folks and the Harvard folks, all Ivy League in fact, are in deep with the intelligence services. It's important in the clandestine services to keep changing your name. Chinese Princelings, fyi, prize a Harvard education. Gee, imagine that.

Browder connection timeline

Interesting history Browder has. I suspect he has a history with Putin before Putin became President , but its hard to find anything on a connection. Anyways lots of interesting connections, meaningful or not, I cant say.

[Hide MORE]
1985 - bugged version of PROMIS was sold for Soviet government use, with the media mogul Robert Maxwell as a conduit.

1990 - just after the fall of the Berlin Wall, Browder found himself on assignment in Poland for Boston Consulting Group. The government had begun privatizing state-owned companies and selling their shares at ridiculously low valuations.

1991 - Anatoly Sobchak, a former law professor of Putin's at Leningrad State, became mayor of Leningrad.* Sobchak hired Vladimir Putin, whom he had known when Putin worked at Leningrad State. Putin was still on active reserve with the KGB.

Putin's tenure in Sobchak's office was so rife with scandal that it led to a host of investigations into illegal assignment of licenses and contracts . Putin was head of the Committee for Foreign Liaison; collaborated with criminal gangs in regulating gambling; a money-laundering operation by the St. Petersburg Real Estate Holding Company, where Kumarin was involved and Putin served on the advisory board; Putin's role in providing a monopoly for the Petersburg Fuel Company, then controlled by the Tambov criminal organization; and much, much more -- virtually all of which was whitewashed. While he was in St. Petersburg in the nineties, Putin signed many hundreds of contracts doling out funds to his cronies.

1991 - November 5, Robert Maxwell, allegedly drowned after falling off his yacht in the Canary Islands near the northwest coast of Africa. Billions were missing from his pension funds

Maxwell's investment bankers included Salomon Brothers. Eventually, the pension funds were replenished with monies from investment banks Shearson Lehman and Goldman Sachs, as well as the British government.

It was March 1991 when William Browder went to work for British billionaire Robert Maxwell as his "investment manager". Just how deep into the investment decisions of Maxwell did Browder participate as an investment manager?

1991 November 10, Maxwell's funeral took place on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, the resting place for the nation's most revered heroes. Prime Minister Shamir eulogized: "He has done more Israel than can today be said."

1992 - Interestingly, after Maxwell died, Bill Browder went to work for the Salomon Brothers in the middle of their own scandal. Browder was put in charge of the Russian proprietary investments desk at Salomon Brothers. He was given 25 million to invest and used it by paying cash for vouchers in Russian companies the government had issued to citizens , and used them to buy shared at public auction. In a short period he turned that into 125 million

The scandal at Salomon Brothers was the manipulation of the US Treasury auctions back then.After that scandal where the government was threatening to shut down Salomon Brothers who was the biggest bond dealer in the USA for manipulating markets, all of a sudden, people from Goldman Sachs started taking posts in government.

1996-Browder left Salomon Brothers and with Edmond Safra founded Hermitage Capital Management for the purpose of investing initial seed capital of $25 million in Russia during the period of the mass privatization after the fall of the Soviet Union. Beny Steinmetz was another of the original investors in Hermitage, the Israeli diamond billionaire.

Cyprus is a favorite place for Russian to launder money. Thats probably why Browder and his accounting advisor Jamison Firestone chose it to launder Browder's Russian profits.

Browder from about 1997 to the mid-2000s used Cyprus shell companies to move money out of Russia to cheat the country of multi-millions of dollars in taxes. He used the Russian shells to invest in shares, including Gazprom shares that were illegal for foreigners to buy in Russia, then moved the shares to Cyprus shells

1996 article entitled, "The Money Plane," published by New York Magazine detailed how the "Russian mob gets a shipment of up to a billion dollars in fresh $100 bills," Edmond Safra's bank, Republic National, was directly implicated.

Guess we know where Browder got the cash money to pay for the vouchers

1998 - If Salomon had not been merged with Travelers Group in 1997 (which owned retail brokerage, Smith Barney), no doubt Salomon Brothers would have collapsed in the 1998 Long-Term Capital Management debacle created by one of their own – Salomons John Meriwether.

Safra lost $1 billion in Russia during the 1998 Long-Term Capital Management crisis over Russian bonds and investments which was why he put his bank, Republic National Bank, up for sale to HSBC in 1999.

1999 - Following the Russian financial crisis of 1998, despite significant outflows from the fund, Hermitage became a prominent shareholder in the Russian oil and gas. It was in 1999 when VSMPO-AVISMA Corporation (Russian: ВСМПО-АВИСМА) – the world's largest titanium producer - filed a RICO lawsuit against Browder and other Avisma investors including Kenneth Dart, alleging they illegally siphoned company assets into offshore accounts and then transferred the funds to U.S. accounts at Barclays.

Browder and his co-defendants settled with Avisma in 2000; they sold their Avisma shares as part of the confidential settlement agreement.

1999 - Republican National Bank was owned by Safra . On May 11, HSBC, announced a $10.3 billion deal to purchase Edmond Safra's holdings including the Republic National Bank of New York and Safra's shares in Bill Browder's firm, Hermitage Capital. The announcement came only nine months after Russia's economy collapsed and Browder's clients, lost over $900 million. It was also nine months after $4.8 billion in IMF funds was deposited in an undisclosed account at Safra's bank and well before the public became aware that that same money was dispersed and stolen through the Bank of New York, off-shore companies, and foreign financial institutions.

HSBC then became Browders partner of the Heritage Fund . Browder's shell companies were registered in Cyprus but owned by HSBC (Guernsey) as the trustee for his Hermitage Capital Management.

Cypriot shells Glendora and Kone were part of his offshore network "owned" by an HSBC Private Bank Guernsey Ltd trust. The real owner was Browder's Hermitage Fund. Assets (stocks and money) went from Russia to Cyprus and then to parts unknown.

Republic International Trust, registered by Mossack Fonseca of Panama Papers fame and listed on the Glendora document, was in the offshore network of Republic National Bank owner Edmond Safra, an early investor who then held 51% of Hermitage Fund shares.

1999 December 3 - Safra was killed in suspicious fire that broke out in his Monte Carlo home. Although some believe that Safra was killed by the Russian mafia, Lurie reported that a Swiss prosecutor investigating the missing IMF money believed that Safra was killed "because of his revelations to the FBI and the Swiss Prosecutor's Office investigating the disappearance and laundering of $4.8 billion of the IMF stablilization loan." One of the more interesting things to note here is that the prosecutor implied that Safra not only spoke with the FBI about the missing IMF funds but with Swiss authorities as well.

Funny how Browders bosses/partners get killed

1999 - the bombings that killed nearly three hundred innocent Russians were likely the product of a "false flag" operation that enabled Putin to consolidate power.

Putin promised to stop the plundering of the Russian state by rich oligarchs. But very few Russians knew that Putin had been a primary actor in the same kind of activity in St. Petersburg. And as for cleaning up corruption, one of Putin's first acts as president was to pardon Boris Yeltsin, thereby guaranteeing immunity from prosecution to the outgoing president.-

Putin recruited two oligarchs who were among his closest confidants, Roman Abramovich and Lev Leviev, to undertake the highly unlikely mission of creating a new religious organization called the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia under the leadership of Rabbi Berel Lazar, a leader in the Hasidic movement called Chabad-Lubavitch.

Founded in the late eighteenth century, the tiny, Brooklyn-based Chabad-Lubavitcher movement is a fundamentalist Hasidic sect centered on the teaching of the late Rabbi Menachem Schneerson, who is sometimes referred to as a messiah -- moshiach -- a savior and liberator of the Jewish people. It is antiabortion, views homosexuality as a perversion, and often aligns itself politically with other fundamentalist groups on the right.

Its biggest donors included Leviev, an Israeli billionaire who was an Uzbek native and was known as the "King of Diamonds" thanks to his success in the diamond trade, and Charles Kushner, an American real estate developer who was later jailed for illegal campaign contributions, tax evasion, and witness tampering. Kushner is also the father of Jared Kushner, who married Donald Trump's daughter, Ivanka, and later became a senior adviser to President Trump. Leviev's friendship with Lazar dates back to 1992 and, according to Haaretz, made Leviev "the most influential, most active and most connected person in the Jewish community of Russia and made Lazar the country's chief rabbi."

Roman Abramovich, controlled the trading arm of one of Russia's largest oil companies through an Isle of Man company that had figured in the Bank of New York affair. Mr. Abramovich ran the Siberian oil giant Sibneft, which sold its oil through a company called Runicom.

His name emerged after speculation that Swiss investigators were looking into the role of Runicom as part of the widening investigation into the laundering of up to $15 billion of Russian money through American banks. Runicom is owned by at least two offshore companies set up by the Valmet Group, a financial services concern partly owned by Menatep, a failed Russian bank that used the Bank of New York."

2001- Salomon Brothers Building (WTC 7) collapses. Tenants include the Department of Defense, the Secret Service, the IRS, and the Securities and Exchange Commission

2005 - Steinmetz of Browders Heritage Fund teamed up with another diamond magnate, Putins buddy Lev Leviev, to purchase the top ten floors of Israel's Diamond Tower which also houses the Israeli Diamond Exchange. Haaretz.com reported that "the buyers intend to build a connector from the 10 floors – the top 10 floors of the building – to the diamond exchange itself in order to benefit from the security regime of the other offices within the exchange." And benefit they did.

According to one website reporting on a Channel 10 (Israel) news story, from 2005 – 2011, an "underground" bank was set up to provide "loans to firms using money taken from other companies while pretending it was legally buying and selling diamonds." The bank apparently washed over $100 million in illicit funds over the course of six years and both Steinmetz and Leviev were directly implicated as "customers" of the bank but Neither of them were charged in the case.

Then there's HSBC's involvement in the diamond industry and Leviev's ties not only to arms dealer Arcadi Gaydamak via Africa-Israeli Investments but Roman Abramovich and Kushner

2007 - Browders Hermitage Capital Management, was raided by Russian interior ministry officers, who confiscated stamps and documents. These were then used to file bogus tax returns to the Russian Treasury, which were paid out to bank accounts controlled by Klyuev and his associates, according to the U.S. government.

Browder claimed Organized crime carried out the tax refund fraud against the Russian Treasury under which criminals used collusive lawsuits to fake damages and get refunds of company taxes. The tax refund fraud using Browder's companies netted $230 million.

2008 - HSBC (Guersey) director Paul Wrench filed a complaint about the tax refund fraud in July on behalf of Hermitage (after Starova's complaints) .

Maginitsky was arrested for being the accountant (not a lawyer) of Browder's tax evasion schemes.

2008 - A lawsuit alleged Bayrock's projected profits were "to be laundered, untaxed through a sham Delaware entity" to the FL Group, Iceland's largest private investment fund, the first major firm to collapse in 2008 when Iceland's financial bubble burst, and a favored financial instrument for loans to Russia-connected oligarchs who were, court papers claim, in favor with Vladimir Putin. According to Bloomberg, Eva Joly, who assisted Iceland's special prosecutor in the investigation of the financial collapse, said, "There was a huge amount of money that came into these banks that wasn't entirely explained by central bank lending. Only Mafia-like groups fill a gap like that."

Another significant Bayrock partner, the Sapir Organization, had, through its principal, Tamir Sapir, a long business relationship with Semyon Kislin, the commodities trader who was tied to the Chernoy brothers and, according to the FBI, to Vyacheslav Ivankov's gang in Brighton Beach.

In addition to being wired into the Kremlin, Sapir's son-in-law, Rotem Rosen, was a supporter of Chabad along with Sater, Sapir, and others at Bayrock, and, as a result, was part of an extraordinarily powerful channel between Trump and Putin. After all, the ascent of Chabad in Russia had been part of Putin's plan to replace older Jewish institutions in Russia with corresponding organizations that were loyal to him.

The biggest contributor to Chabad in the world was Leviev, the billionaire "King of Diamonds" who had a direct line to Rabbi Berel Lazar, aka "Putin's rabbi," to Donald Trump, and to Putin himself dating back to the Russian leader's early days in St. Petersburg.

Indeed, one of the biggest contributors to Chabad of Port Washington, Long Island, was Bayrock founder Tevfik Arif, a Kazakh-born Turk with a Muslim name who was not Jewish, but nonetheless won entry into its Chai Circle as a top donor.

2013-The Hermitage Fund, an HSBC-backed vehicle that invested in Russia and became embroiled in a diplomatic war with the Kremlin over the death of one of its accountants, closes down..

2014, Vekselberg's Renova Group became a partner with Wilbur Ross in the takeover of the Bank of Cyprus, which had held billions in deposits from wealthy Russians.

Back in early 90's Trump found himself in financial trouble when his three casinos in Atlantic City were under foreclosure threat from lenders. He was bailed-out by senior managing director of N.M. Rothschild & Sons, Wilbur Ross, who Trump would later appoint as Secretary of Commerce. Ross, who is known as the "King of Bankruptcy," specializes in leveraged buyouts of distressed businesses.

Along with Blackstones Carl Icahn, Ross convinced bondholders to strike a deal with Trump that allowed Trump to keep control of the casinos.

By the mid-1990s, Ross was a prominent figure in New York Democratic Party politics and had caught the attention President Bill Clinton who appointed him to lead the U.S.-Russia Investment Fund.

2015 - Donald Trump, after emerging from a decade of litigation, multiple bankruptcies, and $ 4 billion in debt, had risen from the near-dead with the help of Bayrock and its alleged ties to Russian intelligence and the Russian Mafia. "They saved his bacon," said Kenneth McCallion, a former federal prosecutor

2015 - Kushner paid $295 million for some of the floors in the old New York Times building, purchased in 2015 from the US branch of Israeli-Russian oligarch Leviev's company, Africa Israel Investments (AFI), and partner, Five Mile Capital.

Kushner later borrowed $285 million from the German financial company Deutsche Bank, which has also been linked to Russian money laundering,

Jared and Ivanka were also close to another of Putins oligarchs, Roman Abramovich and his wife, Dasha Zhukova.

2015-While Wilbur Ross served as vice-chairman of the Bank of Cyprus, the bank's Russia-based businesses were sold to a Russian banker and consultant, Artem Avetisyan, who had ties to both the Russian president and Russia's largest bank, Sberbank. At the time, Sberbank was under US and EU sanctions following Russia's annexation of Crimea.

Avetisyan had earlier been selected by Putin to head a new business branch of the Russian president's strategic initiative agency, which was tasked with improving business and government ties.

Avetisyan's business partner, Oleg Gref, is the son of Herman Gref, Sberbank's chief executive officer, and their consultancy has served as a "partner" to Sberbank, according to their website. Ross had described the Russian businesses – including 120 bank branches in Russia – as being worth "hundreds of millions of euros" in 2014 but they were sold with other assets to Avetisyan for €7m (£6m).

Ross resigned from the Bank of Cyprus board after he was confirmed as commerce secretary in 2017

2018 - Cyprus suspended cooperation with Russia, which had been seeking assistance from the government in Moscow's alleged case of tax evasion against Hermitage Capital Founder Bill Browder.

Ghislaine Maxwell, Associate of Jeffrey Epstein, Is Arrested Nicole Hong, Benjamin Weiser and Mihir Zaveri 6 hrs ago


Ghislaine Maxwell , the former girlfriend and longtime associate of the disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein, was arrested Thursday in New Hampshire on criminal charges linked to his alleged sex-trafficking operation, according to a law enforcement official.

Ms. Maxwell was accused in an indictment of recruiting and grooming "multiple" girls, including one as young as 14, for Mr. Epstein, who sexually abused them. She also faces perjury charges.

The arrest came nearly a year after Mr. Epstein was charged in a federal indictment with sexually exploiting and abusing dozens of underage girls at his mansion in Manhattan, his estate in Palm Beach, Fla. and other locations between at least 2002 and 2005.

The indictment said he paid the girls to give him massages while they were nude or topless, in encounters that typically included sex acts.

Mr. Epstein hanged himself in August in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Lower Manhattan, where he was jailed pending trial on the federal sex-trafficking charges.

Ms. Maxwell, a longtime confidante and companion of Mr. Epstein's, had for years been accused of helping to procure and groom young girls for the financier, including instructing them on how to pleasure Mr. Epstein sexually.

The daughter of the British publishing magnate Robert Maxwell, Ms. Maxwell also helped manage Mr. Epstein's properties and introduced him to the high-profile celebrities and business executives who would form his social circle.

Civil lawsuits have accused Ms. Maxwell of managing a network of recruiters that Mr. Epstein relied on to entice young and often financially strapped girls and women into his scheme, promising he would help them with their education and careers.

"They were like partners in a business," Mr. Epstein's house manager, Janusz Banasiak, said in a deposition.

"She orchestrated the whole thing for Jeffrey," one of Mr. Epstein's accusers, Sarah Ransome, who sued him in 2017, told The New York Times in an interview.

The new federal indictment, unsealed on Thursday, charged Ms. Maxwell with six counts: enticing minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, transportation of a minor with intent to engage in sexual activity, two conspiracy counts related to those charges and two counts of perjury.

The indictment described three instances between 1994 and 1997 of Ms. Maxwell befriending girls, taking them shopping and to the movies. After establishing a rapport with them, Ms. Maxwell would "normalize sexual abuse" by undressing in front of the girls or talking about sexual topics, the indictment claimed.

Mr. Epstein would then abuse the girls in various residences and other locations in New York, New Mexico, Florida and London, according to the indictment.

Jeffrey Pagliuca, who has been a lawyer for Ms. Maxwell, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Jeffrey Epstein's alleged 'madam' told a former acquaintance that she and the now-dead pedophile had "everything on videotape," according to The Telegraph .

The acquaintance, socialite and distant relative to the royals Christina Oxenberg, said that Maxwell also told her that Epstein bought a private helicopter because commercial pilots were "eyes and ears" he did not need.

She revealed she had spoken to the FBI about what she had been told.

Ms Oxenberg, 57, first met Maxwell in the early 1990s and said she would never forget a conversation the pair once had in Maxwell's home.

"We were alone," she said. "She said many things. All creepy. Unorthodox. Strange. I could not believe whatever she was saying was real. Stuff like: 'Jeffrey and I have everyone on videotape.'"...

Maxwell has been accused by several alleged Epstein victims of both facilitating and participating in sexual crimes. She has vehemently denied the claims and has not been charged with any crimes in connection to Epstein's activities.

It has now been over a year since the DOJ "re-opened" its "investigation" into Epstein. Any prosecutor who has just passed his bar exam would need only a few weeks to compile a mountain of evidence against Ghislaine Maxwell. Enough to charge her with scores of crimes.

And it's not like the Feds were starting from scratch. In 2007, the FBI did its own investigation (until it was spiked) and this after the Palm Beach Police Department had compiled its own mountains of evidence. Plus, there have been numerous civil court filings that prove her guilt and complicity as well as numerous public comments of former victims, all of whom implicate and name her as Epstein's key partner.

The fact she is so clearly "off limits" is the greatest tell about the scale of corruption and the extent of the cover-up involved here.

... Now, I do think at some point authorities will conclude they have no choice but to charge her (given that the entire world thinks just like me), so it will be interesting how they handle her if and when she is arrested. They certainly will not use her to reveal the entire real story. They simply cannot do this at this point without charging scores of current and former government employees.

Why are the FBI and DOJ even being allowed to lead this "Investigation?"

[Dec 04, 2019] Is Jeffrey Epstein's Boss Ghislaine Maxwell Helping Mossad Run Pedophile Rings for Prince Andrew and the Ruling Elite by Marco

Dec 04, 2019 | www.unz.com

Video introduction to this article. (If the video is deleted by Youtube you can find it also here in Bitchute.)

https://www.youtube.com/embed/7iVHTrzAoRQ?feature=oembed

The Epstein Pedoscandal Mossad Timeline shows in detail how Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell were working for the Israeli intelligence agency, Mossad.

Link to Unz.com article

The timeline generated many comments at Unz.com but surprisingly most of them dealt whether Epstein was a pedophile or not. This despite the overwhelming evidence of pedophilia.

Many have also totally missed – or are afraid to notice – the big picture: Israeli intelligence agencies and especially Mossad seem to be running pedophile rings that blackmail Western political, business and scientific leaders.

Furthermore, it seems that Ghislaine Maxwell was and still is the master mind behind many of these pedophile rings.

One of the reasons Epstein and Ghislaine were able to continue sex trafficking with impunity for so long was the appearance that Epstein was a victim of jealous people and overzealous police. Many people thought that Epstein had only had sex with a 17-year old girl who had lied about her age.

This excuse worked well because in Florida the age of consent is 18 while in most other American states it is 16.

Link to Wikipedia

Epstein was able to play the martyr by not only claiming that unscrupulous girls had lied their age but also by implying that the age of consent is too high anyway in Florida.

This was also one reason why in New Mexico where Epstein had his Zorro Ranch the officials refused to register him as a sex offender. In New Mexico the age of consent was 16 until in 2018 it was raised to 18.

Furthermore, unlike in many other states, in New Mexico the courts recognize a mistake of age defense.

New Mexico courts recognize a mistake of age defense . The mistake of age defense is basically "I thought she was 17." However, this is no guarantee that this defense will work in court. Moreover, the mistake of age is the creation of judges in the absence of a direct statute addressing the defense. State lawmakers may pass a law overriding the courts on this issue at any time. ( LegalMatch )

In reality the Epstein-Ghislaine case is not whether it is wrong for an adult to have sex with a 17 year old. Instead it is about many other things such as prostitution, grooming, pedophilia and the exploitation of children.

This all is connected to global politics involving sex trafficking, drug and arms trade, money laundering, Ponzi schemes, spy networks and blackmailing for Mossad.

Epstein's victims were caught in a web of international spy network that used them as pawns for blackmail operations. The younger the girls were, the more leverage Israel would have over politicians, billionaires and scientists. Thus Epstein and Ghislaine tried to also recruit girls who were well under the age of 16.

What is more, they personally enjoyed having sex with these very young girls. Both Epstein and Ghislaine seem to have been pedophiles who were attracted to prepubescent girls and boys, i.e. small children.

Pedophilia is defined as:

Pedophilia ( alternatively spelt paedophilia) is a psychiatric disorder in which an adult or older adolescent experiences a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children. [1] [2] ( Wikipedia )

Note that in order to be a pedophile it is enough to have merely occasional sexual attraction to prepubescent, i.e. sexually immature children who have not yet developed secondary sex characteristics, such as breasts.

Julie Brown from Miami Herald notes that Courtney Wild was only 14 when she was recruited into Epstein's sex ring.

Wild still had braces on her teeth when she was introduced to him in 2002 at the age of 14.

She was fair, petite and slender, blonde and blue-eyed. (emphasis added. Miami Herald )

Link to Miami Herald

Julie Brown also notes that Epstein preferred girls who were not only white [and non-Jewish] but also appeared prepubescent.

Wild, who later helped recruit other girls, said Epstein preferred girls who were white, appeared prepubescent and those who were easy to manipulate into going further each time. (Emphasis added. Miami Herald )

For Epstein and Ghislaine it was important that the girls at the very least looked like small children. This is obviously why they preferred girls who were under 16.

Courtney Wild told the police that she brought Epstein over 70 girls and they were all under 16.

By the time I was 16, I had probably brought him 70 to 80 girls who were all 14 and 15 years old (Emphasis added. Miami Herald )

Some girls were even younger. According to the police many were 13 year old.

The girls -- mostly 13 to 16 -- were lured to his pink waterfront mansion by Wild and other girls, who went to malls, house parties and other places where girls congregated, and told recruits that they could earn $200 to $300 to give a man -- Epstein -- a massage, according to an unredacted copy of the Palm Beach police investigation obtained by the Herald. (Emphasis added. Miami Herald )

It is also important to note that even 13 was not the minimum age for Epstein and Ghislaine. In fact, there was no limit to how young the girls could be. Both Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell emphasized that the younger the better.

Eventually, she said Maxwell trained her to recruit new girls for Epstein.

"Jeffrey was very particular in the kind of girls he wanted. First off, the younger the better ."

Epstein said that to her, Giuffre claimed, and " Maxwell said that too . During the training and telling me how to do it, she said 'You always have to go for the youngest-looking ones .'" (Emphasis added. The Daily Beast )

Link to The Daily Beast

It seems the primary purpose was not even blackmail since especially Epstein was having sex with these young girls all the time. On some days Epstein was having sex several times a day.

Sex games were more important for Epstein than work. Obviously, he was extremely attracted to these young girls.

Palm Beach multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein, 54, was accused of assembling a large, cult-like network of underage girls -- with the help of young female recruiters -- to coerce into having sex acts behind the walls of his opulent waterfront mansion as often as three times a day , the Town of Palm Beach police found. (Emphasis added. Miami Herald )

In six months, I never saw him do a day's work," Ransome told The Telegraph. "I never saw him work. He was literally sexually abusing us all day long . (Emphasis added. Business Insider )

Link to Business Insider

Ghislaine also seemed to be obsessed with sex. Just like her father, Robert Maxwell she was rumored to be interested in unconventional sex which includes also sex with young children.

As she [Ghislaine] posed for the pics, which ran in a publication meant to promote Sotheby's vintage fashion collection, she allegedly let slip comments that hinted at a twisted double life.

"She didn't talk about Epstein, but during the shoot she did tell a story about how she just hosted a dinner party for a number of young girls, and she put dildos at each place setting," the source said. "Ghislaine then described how during the dinner two guests, who were a couple, began demonstrating how to do the perfect fellatio on a man for all at the table. She was laughing about it."

"A friend of mine has a whole theory about her, that Epstein was like her father Robert Maxwell, who himself is believed to have had some strange sexual practices." ( Page Six )

Link to PageSix

The Epstein Mossad-Timeline shows how Ghislaine was most probably trained by Mossad to use sex to gather information. That training would not have been too difficult for her since she was hypersexual. Many even considered her a nymphomaniac.

In fact, even many Israeli Jews – who usually have much fewer sexual taboos than puritan English and Americans – were shocked by her raunchy sexuality.

Flirtatious indeed: I understand from a mutual friend that after school she travelled to Israel and visited a kibbutz; she was immediately ostracised by the other girls for making a rather-too-obvious beeline for the Adonis-like lifeguard at the kibbutz pool. Very quickly she got her way, as she would with much in her life. ( Tatler . Emphasis added.)

Even Ghislaine's friend were sometimes shocked by her open sexuality that so often contrasted with her otherwise lady-like behavior and position in high society.

Ghislaine was, added Mason, 'fantastically entertaining' and 'saucy' – the paper said that she talked openly about sex .

In fact, said another acquaintance who saw her often at parties, she was 'obsessed by sex . She's Sphinx-like, mysterious. The last time I saw her, five, 10 years ago, I said what are you up to? And she said "I'm selling this product – stainless-steel mini dumb-bells – that you put up your fanny. For exercising your vaginal muscles, exercise your pelvic floor, learn the Singapore Grip. I'm giving seminars in LA and they all turn up and I tell them, this is how you keep your man."' ( Tatler . Emphasis added.)

Epstein and Ghislaine were both hypersexual. All kind of sex interested them. Little girls were just part of the menu. Or more specifically, the best – and most profitable – part.

Epstein and Ghislaine were so attracted to young girls that nothing seemed to satisfy them. Perhaps this is why Epstein and Ghislaine created the highly risky sexual pyramid scheme. The girls were offered two alternatives: Either satisfy Epstein and Ghislaine sexually or get more girls to satisfy them.

In this way Epstein and Ghislaine were able to recruit literally hundreds of young girls. However, some of these girls went to the police and the sexual pyramid scheme collapsed.

When Epstein got out of jail in 2009 he had half-learned his lesson: American girls are too risky.

Now Epstein and Ghislaine would only concentrate on East European girls with the help of their Jewish-Ukrainian friend Peter Listerman.

One of the lesser-known shadowy figures linked to Jeffrey Epstein and his sex ring of teenage girls and young women is Ukrainian-born Peter Listerman, who has worked as a businessman and television presenter but is most known for his "match-making" abilities.

What match-making really means is that Listerman procures women, often underage, for the jet-set society to use for sexual purposes. His "clients" include Russian oligarchs and American businessmen and seems to have also included Jeffrey Epstein. ( Citizen Truth )

Link to the Citizen Truth.org

Listerman has such a bad reputation that he is shunned even in Ukraine!

Tatiana Savchenko, who founded the first modeling school in Odessa, Ukraine explained to the Daily Beast the lengths she had to go to keep Listerman from getting his hands on young women and trafficking them for sex work.

She claimed that he would frequently approach her students and attempt to lure them with promises of a luxurious lifestyle, and that "It took a lot of work to keep him from tricking our teen models in his traps." ( Citizen Truth )

Peter Listerman is the usual suspect. Link to Fishki.net Do you think I am kidding? I am Peter Listerman! Link to Fishki.net

Both Epstein and Listerman were attracted to very young girls. Neither even tried to hide it much. In fact, Epstein was quite open about his attraction to tweens.

Just three months ago, as federal prosecutors were closing in with new charges, Mr. Epstein had a conversation with R. Couri Hay, a publicist, about continuing to improve his reputation. Mr. Epstein asserted that what he was convicted of did not constitute pedophilia, said Mr. Hay, who declined to represent him.

The girls he had sex with were "tweens and teens," Mr. Epstein told him. ( The New York Times )

But what is a tween?

Preadolescent is generally defined as those ranging from age 10 to 13 years. [4] [6] While known as preadolescent in psychology, the terms preteen, preteenager or tween are common in everyday use. ( Wikipedia )

Epstein was right, of course. What he was convicted of in 2007 did not constitute pedophilia. However, that is precisely one reason why people are so outraged!

Epstein and Ghislaine did not see any problem of recruiting, grooming and having sex also with tweens. And apparently neither did the Justice Department and the FBI led by Robert Mueller !

But it gets even worse. As pointed out in the Epstein Pedoscandal Mossad Timeline , it seems that Epstein and Ghislaine were after even younger girls.

In 2003 Epstein financed Jean-Luc Brunell's(?) and Jeff Fuller's(J) new modelling agency MC2 that seemed to have worked with Peter Listerman.

MC2 obviously refers to the famous Einstein equation E = MC2 , the energy-mass equivalence. Equally obviously, E equals Epstein, the energy, whereas the girls equal MC2, the mass energized by Epstein.

Jean-Luc Brunell

Brunell is generally known as the sleaziest man in model business who has long faced accusations that girls were drugged and raped in his employ . Already in the 80s he was the subject of a famous 60 Minutes expose on sexual abuse in the modeling industry

https://www.youtube.com/embed/CH8NAaPUvlo?feature=oembed

Despite all this – or for the very reason – Epstein invested in MC2 and became particularly close to its founders Brunel and Fuller.

The agency operates in New York, Miami and Tel Aviv. It's in practice half-Israeli.

Many call Israel the capital of human trafficking and organ harvesting .

Link to Ynet.com

MC2 concentrates on importing East European girls to Israel and America. The younger the better.

Marina Lynchuk of MC2 Lolita Lvola from MC2 Linta Lapinda from MC2

Brunel seems to have given 12-year old triplets to Epstein as a birthday present.

'Jeffrey bragged after he met them that they were 12-year-olds and flown over from France because they're really poor over there, and their parents needed the money or whatever the case is and they were absolutely free to stay and flew out,' Giuffre said.

She said she saw the three girls with her own eyes and that Epstein had repeatedly described to her how the girls had massaged him and performed oral sex on him. They were flown back to France the next day.

Link to Daily Mail

It seems that even tweens were not young enough for Epstein.

According to court papers in 2005 Brunel called Epstein and left a message that "he is sending him a 16-year-old Russian girl for purposes of sex". However, the written message says something even worse.

The message, filed as an exhibit in the case, was written on an office message pad, partly in code, and read: "He [Brunel] has a teacher for you to teach you how to speak Russian. She is 2×8 years old not blonde. Lessons are free and you can have your 1st today if you call." ( New York Post )

Does it mean that two eight year olds are involved? Or does 2 x 8 mean to sex 8 year old? (2=to, x=sex)

Why would the lessons be free and why is it relevant that the "teacher" is not a blond?

There is no denying that Epstein and Ghislaine sexualised even small children. This became clear in 2005 when police raided Epstein's Palm Peach mansion.

In one photo that was hanging on the wall a small six or seven year old girl was bending over in a tiny dress. Police blurred out the photo in the video taken during the raid.

Link to The Daily Mail

https://www.youtube.com/embed/-KhMIXqZWt8?feature=oembed

Despite all this only the Russian Television was actively trying to expose Epstein and Ghislaine.

RT aired this video already nine years ago!

The description on the video is even more revealing. It even mentions the 12-year old triplets.

https://www.youtube.com/embed/0f_Md0yzy4Q?feature=oembed

The American TV networks were actively suppressing the story for years.

The American media has also been trying to cover up the fact that Jeffrey Epstein was most probably murdered in his cell. He had to be silenced.

https://www.youtube.com/embed/8non5URYbQs?feature=oembed

But it gets even worse.

This hung on Ghislaine's home wall.

The so called artwork seems to be full of pedophile symbols.

Link to Wikileaks.org

The quality of the photos taken at Ghislaine's home are so good that even more symbols have been found in her artwork.

For some reason the mainstream media has not picked up on this pedophilia angle. No mainstream media journalist has even tried to ask why would Ghislaine have such art and symbols on her home wall.

This despite the fact that Ghislaine is most probably an Israeli superspy just like was her father, Robert Maxwell. She probably has been trained to use sex – including pedophilia – as a tool for blackmail and manipulation.

At the time in Israel females molesting little boys was not even considered rape.

Link to Haaretz.com

Nor have mainstream journalists asked where was Ghislaine when Madeline McCann was abducted.

That would not be an unreasonable question since one of the E-Fit images looks a lot like Ghislaine.

Link to Enchanted Life Path.com

Furthermore, two of the E-Fit images (1A, 1B) look like the Podesta brothers. John Podesta was White House Chief of Staff to Bill Clinton and the Chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.

Ghislaine and Epstein were close to the Clintons and the Podesta brothers have been directly linked also to Pizzagate.

Link to Pizzagate Map created by Tuukka Pensala

Was Ghislaine helping to run also Pizzagate and other pedophile rings for Mossad?

At least she seems to be perfectly trained to do just that. First, her own hypersexuality, family background and possible training by Mossad made it easy for her to master mind the pedophilia ring she run with Epstein.

Second, Ghislaine and Epstein had all the apparel to help run also other pedophile rings: Lolita express airplanes and helicopters, Zorro Ranch in New Mexico and luxury mansions in New York, Palm Peach and Paris.

Even more importantly they had their own island in the Virgin Islands.

In the 90s Epstein bought Little St. James island from the Virgin islands. It had a mansion which Epstein expanded.

Soon locals started to call it the Pedophile Island.

Little St. James island. Link to Wall Street Journal article

The island seems to have tunnels with several underground entrances.

Underground entrance Link to Twitter

The island also has a strange temple.

https://www.youtube.com/embed/LNue92Gta3s?feature=oembed

We Are Change's Luke Rudkowski and the Dollar Vigilante's Jeff Berwick secretly visited the island but were soon chased out.

https://www.youtube.com/embed/VmgSM7lWRts?feature=oembed

Ghislaine has a Helicopter Pilot License and often transported quests to the island.

On the weekends in the 1990s, Maxwell would have her Rollerblades FedExed to Epstein's island in the Caribbean, and said she got her helicopter's license so she could transport anyone she liked without pilots knowing who they were .

Maxwell also said the island had been completely wired for video; the friend thought that she and Epstein were videotaping everyone on the island as an insurance policy, as blackmail.

A source close to Maxwell says she spoke glibly and confidently about getting girls to sexually service Epstein, saying this was simply what he wanted, and describing the way she'd drive around to spas and trailer parks in Florida to recruit them. She would claim she had a phone job for them, "and you'll make lots of money, meet everyone, and I'll change your life."

Maxwell had one other thing to tell this woman: "When I asked what she thought of the underage girls, she looked at me and said, 'they're nothing, these girls. They are trash .'" (Emphasis added. Vanity Fair )

Ghislaine was naturally using Epstein's helicopters. Some of them shared their FAA tail number with a US contractor, Dyncorp . That would have helped Ghislaine and Epstein to fly drugs and children.

FAA records and Epstein's pilot's flight manifest indicate that Epstein's Bell helicopter used the same tail number of N474AW . This was the same tail number used until 2006 by State Department contractor Dyncorp for counter-insurgency operations in Latin America.

The congruence of Epstein's Bell N474AW and Dincorp's Bronco N474AW is noteworthy. In 2002, the year Epstein's aircraft fleet stands accused of flying underage teen girls, some between the ages of 12 and 15 , coincided with Dyncorp's trafficking in underage females between the ages of 12 and 15 from Kosovo and Bosnia in the Balkans.

One Dyncorp whistleblower reported to The Washington Times's Insight magazine's Kelly O'Meara in 2002 the following on one Dyncorp employee in Bosnia:

[he] owned a girl who couldn't have been more than 14 years old. It's a sick sight anyway to see any grown man [having sex] with a child, but to see some 45-year-old man who weights 400 pounds with a little girl, it just makes you sick."

Tail number N474AW has been shared between Epstein's Bell helicopter like the one in this photo. (Emphasis added. Political Bull Pen )

DynCorp's pedophilia ring became internationally infamous with the release of the movie Whistleblower.

Link to Wikipedia

Helicopters can always be seen. However, Ghislaine also has a license to operate submarines!

In 2012 – three years after Epstein got out of jail – Maxwell founded The TerraMar Project , [51] a nonprofit organization that advocated protecting ocean waters.

She gave a lecture for TerraMar at the University of Texas at Dallas and a TED talk, at TEDx Charlottesville in 2014. [52] Maxwell accompanied Stuart Beck (J), a 2013 TerraMar board member, to two United Nations meetings to discuss the project. [17] ( Wikipedia )

In 2014, a United Nations event featured Maxwell as a speaker. According to her bio in the program, Maxwell's "web-based non-profit" aimed "to protect the Oceans by empowering a global community of ocean citizens ." It further described Maxwell as "a private helicopter pilot and an Emergency Medical Technician and a qualified ROV and Deepworker submarine pilot ."

A former Coast Guard officer, Borgerson was also a fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations , which featured Borgerson and Maxwell as speakers during one 2014 talk titled "Governing the Ocean Commons: Growing Challenges, New Approaches." Friends of Maxwell, according to The New York Times , said Borgerson became her boyfriend. Maxwell had allegedly described Borgerson as a " Navy SEAL " to her pals.

Maxwell's dubious charity also roped in the Clinton Global Initiative , the now-defunct networking platform for the Clinton Foundation. In the fall of 2013, CGI named TerraMar as one of the "commitments to action" at their annual meeting. (Emphasis added. Daily Beast )

Did the Pedophile Island have an underground submarine base? Was it a part of global pedophile network?

And was the Ocean Citizens project an attempt to escape national jurisdictions and thus gain at least a partial immunity from police investigations and prosecutions?

Link to TerraMar Project

Interestingly, as late as 2016 Epstein bought also the nearby Great St. James Island. He started to build on the island without permits.

There were rumors that he was building underground. For some reason the mainstream media has had no interest in this second island.

https://www.youtube.com/embed/v1NKk78YQKI?feature=oembed

Why is the mainstream media not interested in Ghislaine's many links to pedophilia?

Perhaps because Ghislaine has so many powerful friends. The photo of the pedophile artwork on Ghislaine's wall was taken 13 March 2007 during a party at Ghislaine's New York townhouse. The guest list included a curious combination of elite Jews, aristocratic Brits and American WASPs.

The party was in Ghislaine's huge 7000-square-foot townhouse. It is located in the most opulent and prestigious neighborhood of America, the Upper East Side , New York on East 65th Street just off Park Avenue. Epstein's townhouse was only 10 blocks away.

There are reports from reliable sources that the townhouse was sold in 2000 to Ghislaine by Lynn Forester de Rothschild . The very same woman who had introduced Epstein and Ghislaine to Alan Dershowits and the Clintons in the 90s.

The Manhattan property, which is close to Epstein's mansion, is owned by Lynn Forester de Rothschild, wife of British financier Sir Evelyn de Rothschild. (See The Times and the original article .)

According to Business Insider Forester sold the townhouse to Ghislaine for less than half the price.

Forester sold the mansion for about $8.5 million less than its assessed market value, which was more than $13.4 million.

Was this a pay-off to Ghislaine from the King of Jews, the Rothschilds for services rendered?

Hillary Clinton, Evelyn de Rothschild, Bill Clinton and Lynn Forester de Rothschild. Link to Mint Press

It probably is also relevant that at the time of the sale of the townhouse the Prime Minister of Israel was Ehud Barak. In the 80s he had been the head of Aman, the Israeli Military Intelligence Agency. As the Epstein Pedoscandal Mossad Timeline revealed, both Epstein and Ghislaine worked for the Israeli intelligence agencies already in the 80s during the Iran-Contra operation.

Note that it was around year 2000 that Epstein and Ghislaine started the pedophile operation in earnest. In the 80s and 90s blackmail operations were a side show but now it became the main show involving hundreds of young girls.

Sexual blackmail – especially involving little children – can be an extremely efficient way to influence key politicians and even military officials. A successful blackmail operation can achieve more than several army divisions. No wonder Barak was so close to Epstein and Ghislaine.

Furthermore, in 2000 the president of Israel was Moshe Katsev who was sexually harassing and even raping his female subordinates. Later Katsev would be convicted of rape.

https://www.youtube.com/embed/Fw9-HUiI9Ak?feature=oembed

It was also in 2000 when the Israeli Vice-Consul of Rio de Janeiro, Arie Scher and Hebrew language Professor George Schteinberg were running a pedophile ring for Israeli tourists. When the Brasilian police started to investigate the Israeli consulate Scher managed to flee back to Israel.

Link to Rodoh.info

In Israel Scher was not prosecuted. Instead in 2005 he was promoted to Consul of Canberra, the capital of Australia. A spokesman for the Israeli Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem, Mark Regev explained:

He [Arie Scher] was a young and single man at the time [in Brazil]. Now he is married and he's six years older and there is no reason why he shouldn't make an excellent diplomatic appointment in Australia.

Australia refused to let Scher enter the country.

Link to William Bowles Info

The most shocking part of the Arie/Aryeh Scher story is that the mainstream media was not interested. Either the stories have been scrubbed from the internet or no stories were ever written by mainstream journalists except one short story by BBC in 2000 and one even smaller story by The Sydney Morning Herald in 2005. Even more surprisingly Youtube does not seem to have any videos about the Scher case.

No wonder Barak was absolutely convinced that the Western mainstream media would never dare to criticize Israel and its intelligence agencies. Not even when Mossad was running pedophile rings.

It was probably the Israeli leaders Shimon Peres, Ehud Barak and Moshe Katsev together with the ultra-Zionist Mega Group who made sure Epstein and especially the Maxwell family had not only immunity from prosecution but also all the blackmail apparel necessary including luxury townhouses, airplanes, yachts, submarines, ranch and a private island. All, of course, bugged to the hilt.

Here the pedophile artwork at Ghislaine's New York townhouse can be seen behind Lillian von Staufenberg who in March 2007 together with Ghislaine and Hamish Bowles organized a dinner party in honor of Allegra Hicks. This at a time when Epstein had already been charged with abusing young girls.

Why would Ghislaine have such a suspicious artwork on her wall knowing that it would probably be photographed during the parties?

Why would Ghislaine and her quests take such a huge risk? Or was it a sign meant to be seen? Was Ghislaine flaunting her power?

Ghislaine and her quests seemed to be absolutely sure that the mainstream media would not dare to ask embarrassing questions.

They were right, of course. The mainstream media knows its place.

However, occasionally some courageous mainstream journalist or editor does try to give hints. Some have even reported on Ghislaine's hyper-sexual reputation and her orgies. It is just that the stories have mostly been scrubbed from the internet.

Fortunately, Whitney Webb from Mintpress has found many of the scrubbed stories. Some of them mention the Mossad connection and others note the orgies. For example, in 2003 a British newspaper, The Evening Standard reported a revealing rumor.

Salacious reports have crossed the Atlantic about Ghislaine hosting bizarre parties at her house to which she invites a dozen or so young girls, then brandishes a whip and teaches them how to improve their sexual techniques.

It seems that Ghislaine was not only a madame to Epstein but also to the ruling elite. This would both explain her popularity and the fact that the media – and especially the American media – dares not to criticize her too much. Not even after her boyfriend Epstein was charged with sex trafficking minors!

Ghislaine's friends are just too powerful. After the March 2007 party the British Daily Mail newspaper was amazed how Ghislaine could still have attracted such creme de la creme of the highest elite. Even more amazingly, the elite was practically swooning over her.

The night before the party, the hostess [Ghislaine] had been inundated with calls from disgruntled socialites, irked that they hadn't received an invitation.

The hostess greeted their objections with her customary charm, but remained unmoved. As always, her list had been carefully edited, and she intended it to stay that way.

Among the select few were Hollywood star Matthew Modine, Kennedy family member Mrs Anthony Radziwill, Peggy Siegel, PR consultant to the stars, and Julie Janklow, heir to a literary dynasty.

There was a Rockefeller on the list, as well as the inevitable countesses, billionaires and New York luminaries.

Link to Daily Mail

The guests at the party included also Renee Rockefeller who is married to Mark Rockefeller , the son of ex-Vice President Nelson Rockefeller and nephew of David Rockefeller.

David Rockefeller lived at 146 East on the same 65th Street in the Upper East Side as Ghislaine. They were practically neighbors. Ghislaine would have to walk only two minutes to visit David.

David liked to pose for photos in his Beetle Room next to his favorite Picasso painting depicting a nude child "prostitute".

David was often visited by his close friend Jacob Rothschild, the patriarch of the Rothschild family.

As shown by the Epstein Pedoscandal Mossad Timeline both Epstein and Ghislaine continued to move in the highest circles long after Epstein got out of jail. In fact, only last year Ghislaine was invited to a secret writers' retreat hosted by the richest man in the world, Jeff Bezos.

Not only billionaires but also royalty kept in close contact with Ghislaine.

Prince Andrew was recently interviewed by the BBC about his relationship with Epstein, Ghislaine and their sex slave Virginia Roberts.

Amazingly, Andrew claimed she has no recollection of Epstein's and Ghislaine's sex slave, Virginia Roberts. This despite the fact that they were photographed together!

Hardly anybody believes Andrew. The queen had no choice but to sack his own son.

Link to Daily Mail

Andrew got sacked because he was caught in a lie.

Andrew claimed he could not have had sex with the 17-year old Virginia in 2001 because he had stayed with the British consul general.

The problem is the consul general does not recall Andrew staying with him.

Link to Daily Mail

Curiously, most of the mainstream media has forgotten that it was Ghislaine who recruited and manipulated Virginia Roberts to become a sex slave.

Even the BBC forgot this crucial fact despite Andrew mentioning Ghislaine many times during the interview.

Time and again, the Prince invoked his friendship with Maxwell, 57, daughter of disgraced media tycoon Robert Maxwell, as the reason he came into paedophile Epstein's orbit.

Asked when he last saw Maxwell, Andrew said his last contact was 'earlier this year, funnily enough', when she 'was here doing some rally'. ( Daily Mail )

Andrew claimed to have met Ghislaine last spring. In fact, they met in June just after US prosecutors reopened the case against Epstein.

The Duke of York held a meeting with Ghislaine Maxwell in London two weeks after US prosecutors announced they wanted to reopen their investigation into Jeffrey Epstein.

The meeting took place on or about June 5, the day before Ms Maxwell took part in a four-day charity motoring rally from London to Monte Carlo.

Did Ghislaine demand that Andrew help make sure that the her own parallel case would not be reopened?

After meeting Andrew she literally disappeared from the face of the earth.

The ex-socialite has not been seen since although rumours have placed her in Brazil, France, the American mid-West and even the UK.

'No one knows where she is,' a lawyer for one of Epstein's victims said last night. 'She's done the greatest disappearing act known to man – or woman.' ( Daily Mail )

Link to Daily Mail

Shockingly, during the BBC interview Prince Andrew mentioned Ghislaine many times and seemed to be proud of their friendship. Despite this the interviewer did not dare to ask questions about their relationship.

Was this a message to all: Leave Ghislaine alone.

Ghislaine is obviously protected not only by the royal family but also by the whole ruling elite. No wonder that she has the Get-Out-of-Jail-Free card .

Ghislaine also tries to protect other Epstein associates.

Link to Daily Mail

Prince Andrew is now afraid to go to the US.

Five women who accuse Jeffrey Epstein of abusing them say Prince Andrew witnessed how people were given massages at the sex offender's homes.

The lawyer for the women has told BBC Panorama he plans to serve subpoenas to force the Duke of York to testify as a witness in all five cases.

He says the prince could have important information about sex trafficking. ( BBC )

Link to BBC story and video

The BBC has now finally zoomed in on Ghislaine.

Another Epstein victim, Sarah Ransome told Panorama Ghislaine Maxwell, one of Prince Andrew's oldest friends, worked hand in hand with Epstein.

"Ghislaine controlled the girls. She was like the Madam," she said.

"She was like the nuts and bolts of the sex trafficking operation and she would always visit Jeffrey on the island to make sure the girls were doing what they were supposed to be doing.

"She knew what Jeffrey liked. She worked and helped maintain Jeffrey's standard by intimidation, by intimidating the girls, so this was very much a joint effort."

Ms Maxwell could not be reached for comment but has previously denied any involvement in or knowledge of Epstein's abuse. ( BBC )

But the American media is still not interested in Ghislaine.

What the American mainstream media always willfully forgets is that Ghislaine Maxwell is the key person and mastermind behind the whole pedo sex trafficking operation.

The key role of Ghislaine is not surprising. After all, her father was an Israeli super spy, Robert Maxwell.

But perhaps this is the very reason why the American media is not interested.

For years Ghislaine has been at the center of a vast pedophile sex trafficking network. But still to this day the American police has never dared to even interview her.

She simply knows too much.

I think the answer to the question in the title of this article is pretty damn obvious to anyone and everyone outside of the controlled media. smdh. Call me crazy, but I wouldn't be shocked to learn that pervert Jeffrey Epstein is still alive somewhere, not only do I not buy the "suicide story," but I am not buying he was murdered either.

[Nov 03, 2019] Jeffrey Epstein's Accused Madam Attended Secretive Jeff Bezos 'Writer's Retreat' Last Year

Nov 03, 2019 | www.zerohedge.com

Last year there was a curious attendee at Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' annual writer's retreat; Jeffrey Epstein's alleged 'madam,' Ghislaine Maxwell .

The daughter of an accused Mossad agent who died under mysterious circumstances, Maxwell was accused of participating in Jeffrey Epstein's sexual grooming and abuse of underage girls. She was confirmed to have attended at least one (and possibly three) of the secretive Bezos get-togethers, according to VICE .

Two Campfire 2018 attendees independently confirmed to Motherboard that Maxwell attended the exclusive retreat that year. One of the sources maintained that Maxwell had attended three Campfires including 2018 , but that Maxwell was not an attendee at Campfire 2019 held in early October. Campfire 2018 took place shortly before a Miami Herald investigation resurfaced Epstein's crimes and Maxwell's alleged links to them, which eventually led to new charges against Epstein. - VICE

Maxwell was accompanied to Campfire by tech CEO and Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) member Scott Borgerson - who denied in August that he and Maxwell are romantically linked, or that she was hiding out at his "secluded oceanfront property" in New England - as reported by the Daily Mail .

What is Campfire?

According to the report, it's an " all-expenses-paid retreat courtesy of Bezos and Amazon that is completely off the record for attendees, who often bring their spouses and partners on the free trip." It was started in 2009.

The secretive conclaves have had virtually no press coverage (aside from a 2014 New York Times article), and has "largely remained under the radar ," reports VICE - which notes that Maxwell's attendance "further illustrates the connections that Epstein and Maxwell maintained to the wealthy elite."

Tech moguls , presidents , well-known actors, and Prince Andrew all came into their orbit even after Epstein's misdeeds and Maxwell's alleged role first came to light. In fact, a secretive 2011 dinner in Long Beach, California attended by Bezos and other tech CEOs was also attended by Epstein , less than two years after he served time for underage sex crimes.

Maxwell, who has never been charged or arrested and has only faced allegations in civil lawsuits , has always denied any wrongdoing or involvement with Epstein's crimes and has made few public appearances since they first surfaced in media reports. - VICE

Maxwell is currently missing. Aside from a strange and allegedly photoshopped photo-shoot of her having a burger and milkshake at a California "In-N-Out" (while reading a book about the CIA), her whereabouts are unknown.

Look at her familial background. Her sister, and her career. Her father. Deeply inside CFR territory, as deeply as it gets. Her sister Christine's company (after she'd created and sold Magellan) was Chiliad. You've heard of it? Real time surveillance at epic levels, purchased by governments and Intelligence agencies around the planet and iirc she sold it recently, too. Chiliad was there before most others and this family could swing a deep escape for Everyone. Lol from Eps to Ghislane or anyone.
Inside. Big time inside.

Bezos typifies an individual who on their own are weak and usually not very successful in relationships. As a youth was viewed as geeky, strange not fitting in well with other students. We find Bezos who uses his money to become more than life-like with the extreme training and steroids.

He's power hungry and a ruthless doggedness in business that built Amazon. Despite his wealth, his wife couldn't remain in the marriage for reasons undisclosed.

My intuition is that while Bezos may have been weird as a youth and not very popular, his power and wealth gained in later life made the world of global trafficking, illicit drugs and pedophilia a favorite pastime. Just my intuition, but he certainly fits the picture of those elite who have reached the level through their wealth of no rules..

NO rules. There's no surprise for me that Bezos chummed around with Epstein and Maxwell.

[Sep 13, 2019] Epstein, like Maxwell, was laying the groundwork for Israeli espionage activities

Sep 13, 2019 | www.counterpunch.org

Media tycoon and former Labour MP Robert Maxwell (father of Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein's partner in crime) was given a state funeral in Jerusalem after *accidentally* falling off his yacht – the unluckily named "Lady Ghislaine". Later it was revealed Maxwell Sr was a Mossad asset who used his vast network of connections and publishing platforms to run editorial interference over his purchased assets to influence enemies and friends alike, ensuring their fealty to the foreign government that had enlisted him for its espionage work.

His tabloid empire was the piss-colored propaganda organ of the interests he served, overseeing its rapid growth and tentacled reach across the globe. More ominously, he was behind the spy agency's successful attempt to install a trapdoor in software intended for government use, allowing the Israelis a direct pipeline into a vast network of computers installed with undectable malware.

At the time of his death, the disgraced magnate was under investigation for raiding his companies' pension funds to cover the losses incurred from his multiple and reckless takeovers, and finance a luxury lifestyle he enjoyed sharing with high profile pals like Henry Kissinger and Barbara Walters. Curiously, many of these fossilized specimens from Robert Maxwell's roster of friends from the Reagan era would circle around Epstein, most notably Donald Trump whose Mar-a-Lago resort would later become a recruiting center for employer Epstein's underage "massage therapists".

Fast forward a couple of decades since the days a casino mogul was gobbling down canapés with the old guard denizens of the 'swamp'. Notice a similar, if not identical MO in both Maxwell and Epstein's role in procuring technology for the Israelis, who in turn sold it with undisclosed add-ons, providing an open window into its users' databases.

Like his predecessor, Epstein had a financial stake in a startup (headed by former Israeli Defense Minister and later Prime Minister Ehud Barak) connected to Israel's defense industry that provides infrastructure for emergency services as a call handling platform. Considering the company's connection to military intelligence, it wouldn't be a stretch to speculate on some of this software's other 'special' features. A variation of the early technology that Maxwell was able to procure for his Israeli bosses was later sold to the Saudis, who leveraged its sophisticated tracking features to assassinate Jamal Khashoggi.

Epstein, like Maxwell, was laying the groundwork for Israeli espionage activities through his interests in companies with a political agenda concealed in products intended for international export. If true, the playboy philanthropist feted and flattered his high profile friends to ensnare them as complicit partners in what amounts to the legal definition of treason. Epstein's covert activities have undiminished real world consequences for anyone on Israel's international radar, especially those challenging the status quo policies in place that prioritize "The Jewish State's" political and financial objectives over actual justice and global stability.

If you have ever asked yourself why Israel's war crimes and settlement expansion go unchallenged by US lawmakers, consider the career destroying consequences contained within those dossiers compiled by the braintrust behind Epstein's 'suicide'. "We'll trade you one US Embassy in Jerusalem for 10 minutes of hidden camera footage of you . . . let's say 'enjoying' a rolled up Forbes magazine".

Were the surveillance apparatuses installed throughout Epstein's properties merely a voyeur's tools, or did he use them to leverage the moral failings of his former friends for purposes that might have risked exposure of more than the nether regions of wealthy pedo-punters? Considering his connections to Israeli defense industries and his own Achilles penis that required, by his own admission, "three orgasms a day", the answer points to an unslakable addiction that dovetailed conveniently with his state-sponsored sex crimes.

Did Epstein make the same mistake of Maxwell (who had asked for nearly half a billion dollar in "loans" from his Israeli backers to relieve him of his mounting debts) believing the dirt he had in his possession would prove radioactive if released? By this time, the corpulent tycoon was nicknamed the 'Bouncing Czech' a reference in most part to his worsening money woes. The implication of this request, if turned down, was the exposure of Israel's state secrets. Epstein could have also attempted to collateralize the cache of damning evidence still in his possession to secure his his freedom with the same fatal consequences.

Both Maxwell and Epstein somehow evaded the electronics that linked them to the outside world at the time of their deaths, even though the latter had reportedly made an attempt on his own life while in custody. Both men, facing ruination and serious prison time gave their executioners an alibi: They had nothing to left to live for. The establishment media is already trotting out ancient, ding-a-ling conspiracy theories from obscure right wing sources (attributed to Russia, of course) to highlight the absurdity and futility of questioning the official story of Epstein's death. Verdict: Nothing to see here.

By now, it's a given that the parasitic and preferred daughter of the deceased tycoon, made the fateful introduction between her new boyfriend and the Israeli operatives seeking an entry level plutocrat to carry out their blackmail operations after the untimely death of his predecessor. An impoverished socialite has to survive in pricey Manhattan somehow, and that somehow was re-establishing the shady connections to the espionage underworld that had recruited Maxwell Sr.

Ghislaine's later role as Epstein's Chief Procurement Officer (or pimp for short) gives more credence to the rumors that she is more than just a debased, barnacle-like appendage to a billionaire, desperate to please her platonic partner by "organizing his social life", but a fully cognizant co-conspirator in an operation aimed at strengthening Israel's hand in all matters pertaining to its national security interests, or more accurately, its overseas criminal enterprises.

The recent raid on Epstein's Manhattan apartment was not the result of a so-called Justice Department righting the egregious wrong it committed by letting Epstein off with a slap on the wrist after his initial conviction that allowed him to serve his sentence largely outside the minimum-security facility with an open door policy for its billionaire guest. More likely, the reversal of Epstein's "sweetheart" deal was a joint operation between the oligarch cabal informally known as the Mega-Group, and the state security apparatuses that do their bidding.

It's seems likely that this sudden pivot towards justice from a Justice Department initially spooked into inaction by the spook in his custody, was motivated by the need to remove the most damning bits among Epstein's vast trove of physical evidence against the pervy punters who visited his island getaway for unintended photo ops with underage girls.

Perhaps his own abuse of these minors was a perk he felt entitled to, and one that would be overlooked in the service of "national security". It's hard for most people to differentiate between the government he actually worked for and the ruling establishment on his home turf.

It's possible that Epstein felt his serial transgressions were merely par for the plutocracy and justified in the service of a higher calling.

The 'Israel First' philanthropist shared an unyielding ideological justification for his own criminality as Robert Maxwell, whom the British Home Office had considered recruiting for its own intelligence gathering in the mid 1960's. Having determined that the well-connected, multilingual, rising star politician was strictly "Zionist", the spy agency withdrew his candidacy.

Epstein's real crimes had little to do with raping children, despite the overturned plea deal that came about when a federal judge ruled that prosecutors had violated the victims rights by by concealing the agreement from them. The one time teflon-coated "member of intelligence" who was "above the pay grade" of a powerful District Attorney (now a now scandal-tainted former Labor Secretary) was ultimately (and lethally) penalized for not destroying the contents of his secret-laden safes, leaving his handlers still vulnerable to their explosive contents.

Had the doomed financier divested himself of the toxic assets still in his possession, he might still be roaming the earth today, scouring it for new specimens to populate his underage petting zoo. As a result of the Justice Department's decision to reverse the non-prosecution deal meant to bury the most incendiary facts of the case, lower-rung punters like former governor Bill Richardson and Senator George Mitchell are being publicly named for their part in the sordid scandal. Someone has to take the fall. (Rule number one of PR crisis management: Crucify the insignificant and let them hang out to dry until the public tires of watching the slow motion spectacle of their undoing.) Meanwhile, documented and/or photographic evidence against more powerful players like Bill Clinton and Donald Trump will have already been destroyed in the pursuit of selective justice.

The fallout of Epstein's spectacular downfall predictably miss the mark as scandals involving the rich and powerful tend to do. Much of the controversy will dissolve into a Cheetoh dust maelstrom of disinformation, disseminated on Reddit and 4Chan by incel info-warriors before shooting up a shopping mall or playground.

Subsequent reporting of the case will overlook decades of the elite-driven state craft that elevated corrupt and ruthless entities like Epstein and Trump, both ring-kissing acolytes in their youth of influential mob fixer/politcal power broker Roy Cohn – himself a serial sexual predator who similarly caught the fancy of fellow deviants Joe McCarthy and J. Edgar Hoover. Follow the money trail from Tel Aviv and you'll discover an ancestral link between the corpse of Epstein and his ghostly godfathers waiting with his rewards in hell.

Along with the other disgraced and expendable patsies left in the wake of this ongoing scandal is Alan Dershowitz, Epstein's octogenarian chief legal counsel and 'wing man' aboard the Lolita Express. The now unemployable cable news pundit will live out the remainder of his pointless life under a cloud of suspicion. Despite all the damning testimony against him, the statutory rape allegations never quite stick, but follow him around like a sneaky fart, forcing a distance between himself and the rest of humanity that will last until he is engulfed by the sulfurous fumes of his own making.

The former Harvard law professor's lifelong service to Israel will go unrewarded – not as a result of victim testimony placing him at multiple crime scenes, but in consideration of his own inept self-defense strategy: "I'm a scurvy rat aboard a sinking ship eating its own tail to stay alive. Pity me"! Dershowitz at this point will be lucky if he can achieve the same pay grade and social status of Lindsay Lohan. Ditto for Prince Andrew who can at least be relied on to expire slowly of gout in his time-out corner at Windsor Castle.

skeptic23 says: September 3, 2019 at 1:00 am GMT 400 Words Geoffrey Berman, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, is the only government official who is clearly trustworthy , because he could have stopped the 2019 Epstein indictment and he didn't. I don't think Attorney-General Barr could have blocked it, and I don't think President Trump could have except by firing Berman. I do trust Attorney-General Barr, however, from what I've heard of him and because he instantly and publicly said he would have not just the FBI but the Justice Dept. Inspector-General investigate Epstein's death, and he quickly fired the federal prison head honcho.

The above statement re: Berman is exactly wrong. He is a Trump Appointee and transition team member.

1. There was no real Epstein indictment/investigation , just a piece of paper sufficient to take him into custody and institute a criminal proceeding.

Absolutely standard procedure in this case where the conduct took place openly over years would include: a. informants wearing wires; b. securing the crime scenes, including all the properties and the planes; c. simultaneous arrests of 20-50 co-defendants/conspirators ranging from Maxwell and Wexner at the top to most all staff at the properties where the crimes occurred, the pilots, etc. None of this happened.

They took computers and records from NY and visited Little St. James for a few hours 30 days after the arrest. see Rusty Shackleford videos. The way they always build a case like this is to get the little guys to talk and then move up the food chain to the big boys (and girls).

2. The Bureau of Prisons has two main operations: prisons for convicted offenders and "federal jails". They are completely separate lines of business. The purpose of the "jails" in the federal system, where each District has its own, is to obtain convictions from the detainees. The BOP staff in the jails are members of the prosecution team for all practical purposes. All mail in and out is read and copied. All calls are monitored and recorded. Detainees are placed in units after consultations among the BOP, U.S. Marshals and U.S. Attorneys for the District.

Cooperating codefendants may all be placed on the same unit, for example, so that they get their stories straight, while those fighting cases are elsewhere.

Snitching is rampant and good information is rewarded by downgrading of charges, lenient sentencing and assignment to sweet spots in the prison system. Berman and his team were involved in formulating and were continuously aware of the most minute details of the conditions of Epstein's confinement.

Berman was at the center of whatever it was that happened.

Lawyer For Epstein's 'Madam' Says 'Hundreds Of Names' Contained In Upcoming Records Dump

by Tyler Durden Wed, 09/04/2019 - 10:45 0 SHARES

An attorney for Jeffrey Epstein confidant (and alleged groomer) Ghislaine Maxwell told a judge on Wednesday that there are "hundreds" of people named in what is expected to be approximately 2,000 pages of documents ordered unsealed by the federal appeals court in New York, according to Bloomberg .

The lawyer, Jeffrey Pagliuca, told U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska Wednesday that the materials also include an address book with about 1,000 names . Preska is considering how to carry out a ruling by the federal appeals court in New York that she must consider unsealing some of the documents. There was no detail at the hearing as to the identity of the people are named in the documents, and they may include women who say they are victims of Epstein, his friends and others . - Bloomberg

According to court filings, Maxwell was said to have hired, supervised and fired household staff, while directing the visits of dozens of "massage therapists" to Epstein's residence , according to the Journal .

In depositions taken in 2009 and 2010 as part of civil lawsuits against Mr. Epstein, household employees said Ms. Maxwell was a central figure in Mr. Epstein's private life . Several said Ms. Maxwell hired, supervised, and fired household staff, while directing the visits of dozens of "massage therapists" -- typically young women.

Juan Alessi, who said in one of the depositions that he served as the Palm Beach house manager from around 1992 through 2002, described a basket of sex toys in Ms. Maxwell's bathroom closet . He said he would find them around when he cleaned up after visits from the young women. - WSJ

The document release stems from a 2015 defamation lawsuit in New York brought by Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre against Maxwell. Giuffre says Maxwell helped Epstein traffic herself and other underage girls to sex parties at the billionaire pedophile's many residences. Maxwell has denied any wrongdoing and called Giuffre a liar.

The case was settled in 2017 and the records were sealed - however appeals by the Miami Herald, Harvard Law professor (and former Epstein pal) Alan Dershowitz and right-wing blogger Mike Cernovich were successful.

In August, the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit has ordered the partial release of Epstein documents, which revealed that Giuffre said that President Trump was a "good friend of Jeffrey's," but that Trump 'didn't partake in any sex with any of us," adding "Donald Trump never flirted with me."

Epstein was found dead in federal lockup last month after his arrest on child sex-trafficking charges. While the case was dismissed against Epstein, Judge Preska must now consider how to release the sealed records - and from the looks of it, the possibility remains that they may not be released at all.

[Sep 01, 2019] What Jeffrey Epstein 'could not buy, he forcibly took' His accusers speak out in court

Epstein was strategic in recruiting girls and he selected those who badly need money and were ready for moral compromises to get to modeling career, or acting or massage therapy.
In a was this was a replay of how Hollywood treats starlets but a different set of "customers" for the girls. What is unclear why Maxwell was in this dirty business. Was it for money ?
Sep 01, 2019 | www.nbcnews.com

"The investigation into those matters has been ongoing, is ongoing, and will continue," a prosecutor for the Southern District of New York said.

Several accusers who spoke in court Tuesday named Epstein's former longtime associate, Ghislaine Maxwell.

"We all know he did not act alone," Sarah Ransome said, asking prosecutors to "finish what you have started."

Theresa Helm said that Maxwell needs to be "held accountable."

https://tpc.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-35/html/container.html?n=0

Another accuser, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, said she was 17 when Maxwell allegedly recruited her. Giuffre said she was told that she could have a career as a massage therapist, but she instead became "a victim of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell and the horrible acts they committed against me."

"I commend the prosecutors for the Southern District of New York for their ongoing pursuit of justice," she said.

Maxwell, a British socialite, has been named in some court filings by women alleging abuse by Epstein.

A cache of court papers relating to a separate 2015 federal defamation lawsuit filed by Giuffre against Maxwell shows that she claimed in a 2016 deposition that Epstein and Maxwell groomed her to become a "sex slave" for high-powered men starting when she was 16.

Maxwell has not been charged with a crime and has not commented publicly since the papers were released earlier this month. Her lawyer also has not previously returned a request for comment upon release of the documents Friday and could not be immediately reached on Tuesday.

Previously, in a motion to dismiss the suit, Maxwell's lawyers said Giuffre "produced no evidence substantiating any of her fantastical claims that she had been trafficked by Epstein, or by Maxwell."

U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman said Epstein's death was "a rather stunning turn of events" and that giving the women a chance to speak was a matter of law and "respect."

"I believe it is the court's responsibility and in its purview that the victims in the case are dealt with, with dignity and with humanity," he said.

That move may have been related to the untimely demise at age 56 of her third husband, the infamous con man Al Seckel who, she later found out, was not legally her husband since he was still married to his first wife. In 2015, when he reportedly died, he was potentially on the hook for millions

Seckel befriended and bewitched the Nobel Prize-winning physicists Richard Feynman and Murray Gell-Mann among other neuroscientists, as well as academics and even magicians like James Randi.

Seckel then used those contacts to sell rare books to prestigious customers who were often hoodwinked out of thousands in bad deals. He moved on to co-opt the burgeoning field of optical illusion, popularizing the art of manipulating images by using research from others in books he wrote.

(His daughter, Elizabeth Seckel, has built on her father's work in optical illusion by pioneering something called "mirror box therapy." Seckel brought her method, sponsored by the Clinton Global Initiative, to Haiti after the earthquake in 2012 to help recent amputees with their phantom limb pain.)

In 2010, Seckel hosted a scientific conference on Jeffrey Epstein's infamous private island with Gell-Mann, Leonard Mlodinow, who was Stephen Hawking's co-author, and MIT's Gerald Sussman.

Oppenheimer told The Daily Beast this week that there was "no evidence" that Seckel or any of the scientists at the island party were involved in any sexual activity with young girls.

In 2004 Seckel gave a TED talk that's been viewed almost 2.5 million times about "perceptual illusions that fool our brains."

Because of Seckel's shady past, it was not surprising that vague reports of his death -- a perceptual illusion perhaps? -- began popping up just weeks after Oppenheimer's July 2015 story exposed him to hordes of creditors.

A paid obituary was published on Legacy.com, supposedly after appearing in the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, but it does not appear on the paper's website. One report has circulated around various Seckel-obsessed corners of the internet that his body was found at the bottom of a cliff near the home in France where he had moved with Isabel.

But The Daily Beast could not locate any officials in the town where Seckel was last known to live who had any report of his death. Oppenheimer and others said they have not yet found proof, either. The Daily Beast was unable to reach Isabel Maxwell or Elizabeth Secker for comment.

[Aug 25, 2019] The Genesis and Evolution of the Jeffrey Epstein, Bill Clinton Relationship

Some wild speculation which looks like third rate fiction. For example the episode describes as Barr meeting with Clinton looks like pure fiction: " During the meeting, William Barr, who represented himself as the emissary of then-CIA Director Bill Casey told Clinton: "The deal we made was to launder our money through your bond business but what we didn't plan on was you and your n****r here start taking yourselves seriously and purposely shrinking our laundry."
In such talks only two people are present and there are no notes...
But still Wexner emerges as a very strange semi-criminal figure who mingled with some people closely connected to organized crime and possibly intelligence agencies.
An interesting detail that is mentioned in this article is that Ghislaine Maxwell used to be closely connected with Chelsea Clinton.
Notable quotes:
"... Columbus Dispatch ..."
"... Epstein who orchestrated logistics for Wexner's business operations, including The Limited. As was revealed in the Arthur Shapiro murder file and in ties between SAT and The Limited, much of The Limited's logistics involved figures and companies connected to organized crime and U.S. intelligence. ..."
"... In addition, during this time period, Epstein had already begun to live in the now infamous New York penthouse that had first been purchased by Wexner in 1989. Wexner had apparently installed CCTV and recording equipment in an odd bathroom in the home after his purchase, and never lived in the home, as was noted in Part III of this series. ..."
"... In an exclusive interview, Bob Fitrakis told MintPress that Epstein and Wexner's involvement with SAT's relocation to Ohio had caused suspicion among some prominent state and local officials that the two were working with U.S. intelligence. ..."
"... Fitrakis specifically stated that then-Ohio Inspector General David Strutz and then-Sheriff of Franklin County Earl Smith had personally told him that they believed that both Epstein and Wexner had ties to the CIA. These claims further corroborate what was first reported by Nigel Rosser in the Evening Standard that Epstein had claimed to have worked for the CIA in the past. ..."
"... he believed that Wexner's association with SAT was related to his ties to elements of organized crime that were connected to the Lansky-created National Crime Syndicate. ..."
"... Catherine Austin Fitts -- the former investment banker and government official, who has extensively investigated the intersection of organized crime, black markets, Wall Street and the government in the U.S. economy -- was told by an ex-CIA employee that Wexner was one of five key managers of organized crime cash flows in the United States. ..."
"... As this series has noted in previous reports, Meyer Lansky was a pioneer of sexual blackmail operations and was deeply connected to both U.S. intelligence and Israel's Mossad. Furthermore, many members of the so-called Mega Group, which Wexner co-founded, had direct ties to the Lansky crime syndicate. ..."

During that same period of time, Epstein had already forged close ties to important Clinton White House officials and prominent Clinton donors like Lynn Forester de Rothschild and made several personal visits to the official presidential residence.

Despite the involvement of these CIA-linked men, as well as the organized crime-linked Leslie Wexner, the then-president of SAT told the Columbus Dispatch that the airline was "no longer connected to the CIA."

Notably, It was during this same time that Epstein exerted substantial control over Wexner's finances; and, according to Fitrakis and his extensive reporting on Wexner from this period, it was Epstein who orchestrated logistics for Wexner's business operations, including The Limited. As was revealed in the Arthur Shapiro murder file and in ties between SAT and The Limited, much of The Limited's logistics involved figures and companies connected to organized crime and U.S. intelligence.

It is also important to note that SAT was well-known for being a CIA front company prior to the efforts of Wexner et al. to bring the airline to Columbus, and that, a few years prior, Epstein himself had previously worked for intelligence-linked figures also involved in Iran-Contra, such as Adnan Khashoggi.

In addition, during this time period, Epstein had already begun to live in the now infamous New York penthouse that had first been purchased by Wexner in 1989. Wexner had apparently installed CCTV and recording equipment in an odd bathroom in the home after his purchase, and never lived in the home, as was noted in Part III of this series.

In an exclusive interview, Bob Fitrakis told MintPress that Epstein and Wexner's involvement with SAT's relocation to Ohio had caused suspicion among some prominent state and local officials that the two were working with U.S. intelligence.

Fitrakis specifically stated that then-Ohio Inspector General David Strutz and then-Sheriff of Franklin County Earl Smith had personally told him that they believed that both Epstein and Wexner had ties to the CIA. These claims further corroborate what was first reported by Nigel Rosser in the Evening Standard that Epstein had claimed to have worked for the CIA in the past.

Fitrakis also told MintPress that Strutz had referred to SAT's route between Hong Kong and Columbus on behalf of Wexner's company The Limited as "the Meyer Lansky run," as he believed that Wexner's association with SAT was related to his ties to elements of organized crime that were connected to the Lansky-created National Crime Syndicate. In addition, Catherine Austin Fitts -- the former investment banker and government official, who has extensively investigated the intersection of organized crime, black markets, Wall Street and the government in the U.S. economy -- was told by an ex-CIA employee that Wexner was one of five key managers of organized crime cash flows in the United States.

As this series has noted in previous reports, Meyer Lansky was a pioneer of sexual blackmail operations and was deeply connected to both U.S. intelligence and Israel's Mossad. Furthermore, many members of the so-called Mega Group, which Wexner co-founded, had direct ties to the Lansky crime syndicate.

... ... ...

The Israel lobbying effort had considerable help from Mega Group member Michael Steinhardt as well as Abe Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which was at the time heavily funded by Mega Group members, including Ronald Lauder and Edgar Bronfman.

There has been speculation for years that Clinton's decision to pardon Rich may have been the result of "leverage" or blackmail that Israel had acquired on the then-president's activities. As was noted in Part III of this report, the Mossad-linked "Mega" spy scandal broke in 1997, whereby Israeli intelligence had been targeting Clinton's effort to broker a peace agreement between Israel and Palestine and had sought to go to "Mega," likely a reference to the Mega Group, to obtain a sensitive document.

In addition, Israel is known to have acquired phone conversations between Clinton and Monica Lewinsky before their affair was made public. Author Daniel Halper -- relying on on-the-record interviews with former officials and hundreds of pages of documents compiled in the event that Lewinsky took legal action against Clinton -- determined that Benjamin Netanyahu told Clinton that he had obtained recordings of the sexually-tinged phone conversations during the Wye Plantation talks between Israel and Palestine in 1998. Netanyahu attempted to use this information to get Clinton to pardon convicted Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard. Clinton considered pardoning Pollard but decided against it after CIA Director George Tenet threatened to resign if the pardon was given.

Aug 25, 2019 | www.unz.com

A few days ago Vanity Fair , the same outlet that once attempted to block the exposé of monster pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, published an article by Venessa Grigoriadis that provides some details of Epstein's friend and alleged 'co-conspirator' Ghislaine Maxwell.

Multiple victims claim that Maxwell often brought girls to Epstein and that she was an active sexual participant as well. According to Vanity Fair, "a source close to Maxwell says she spoke glibly and confidently about getting girls to sexually service Epstein, saying this was simply what he wanted, and describing the way she'd drive around to spas and trailer parks in Florida to recruit them. She would claim she had a phone job for them, 'and you'll make lots of money, meet everyone, and I'll change your life .'" Vanity Fair's source added: "When I asked what she thought of the underage girls, she looked at me and said, 'they're nothing, these girls. They are trash."

This is gossipy information, but it seems consistent with what we have learned about Epstein and his ring. Those familiar with Maxwell family history won't be shocked that Maxwell is quoted calling the girls "trash." Daddy Maxwell plundered the lifetime pensions of his workers for his own use. He was alleged to be a Mossad agent. Not many know that Daddy Maxwell was also under police investigation for war crimes just before he drowned. Metropolitan Detectives were preparing to interview Maxwell, once a decorated captain in the British army, about an allegation that he murdered the unarmed mayor of a German City back in 1945.

One may say 'like father like daughter'. But the total dismissal of otherness and human life is not limited to the Maxwells. Those of us who follow the unfolding Palestinian tragedy are pretty familiar with the institutional disregard to human life that is symptomatic of Israeli policy and is supported by its forceful lobby around the world. The saga of disgraceful conduct on the part of Epstein and others in his orbit suggests that the dismissal of otherness is characteristic of a wide circuit of those affiliated ideologically, politically and spiritually with Zion.

During an interview with Miami news station WPLG Alan Dershowitz not only bashed one of his accusers, calling her an "admitted prostitute and a serial liar" but claimed that the then-teen was not victimized and in fact "made her own decisions in life." I am not in a position to determine whether Dershowitz is guilty of sex crimes (which he denies) but this kind of language is the last thing you would expect from a retired Ivy League law professor. One wouldn't imagine that a law 'scholar' would refer to an alleged victim of sex trafficking as 'an admitted prostitute.' Nor would one expect a veteran 'law scholar' to suggest that the child victim of sexual abuse by a registered sex offender was actually 'making her own decisions in life.' But this is exactly what we hear from Alan Dershowitz. No doubt one of the most vocal Zionist advocates around.

Watch the entire interview:

https://www.youtube.com/embed/_GlK8dr6MP0?feature=oembed

The disregard of others and the dismissal of human life, symptomatic of the Epstein Orbit, extends beyond ethnicity, religious barriers and class. Indeed, we read in various outlets that Leslie Wexner, long standing patron of Epstein, is accused by some of having some connection to the murder of Arthur Shapiro -- a Jewish lawyer who was killed in a 1985 'mob-style murder '. Shapiro's doomed soul was resurrected when the Columbus, Ohio Police released the controversial -- and once believed destroyed -- document investigating his death. Presumably Shapiro knew too much. And author Daniel Halper claims that Israel and its operators within American politics have not refrained from blackmailing even an American president.

According to Halper, Israel attempted to use tapes of former US president Bill Clinton's steamy sex chats with intern Monica Lewinsky to leverage the release of Jonathan Pollard. Halper claims that during the Wye Plantation talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, held in Maryland in 1998, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pulled Bill Clinton aside to press for Pollard's release. "The Israelis present at Wye River had a new tactic for their negotiations–they'd overheard Clinton and Monica and had it on tape. Not wanting to directly threaten the powerful American president, a crucial Israeli ally, Clinton was told that the Israeli government had thrown the tapes away. But the very mention of them was enough to constitute a form of blackmail," Halper wrote, "according to information provided by a CIA source, a stricken Clinton appeared to buckle."

This horrific narrative of how Israel allegedly blackmailed an American president initially surfaced in 1999. In his book Gideon's Spies , author Gordon Thomas claimed that the Mossad had collected some 30 hours' worth of phone sex conversations between Lewinsky and Clinton and was using them to blackmail the US or to protect a deeply-embedded mole in the White House.

The Clintons have often been referred to in relation to the Epstein affair. It is likely, that as with the young women Epstein abused, the Clintons and other prominent Americans were also 'victims' so to say.

I now believe that Epstein was just a player in a huge crime syndicate that often seems to operate in large parts of American life, its politics, culture, academia and, of course, finance. In such a vile apparatus Epstein ran an amusement park. He was never 'a financier.' He specialized in accumulating filth that could be used to extract dollars or other favours.

In America in 2019 just about every politician at any level except probably Ilhan Omar and Rashida Talib has been reduced into a Zionist puppet. Every prominent American is subject to direct or indirect Zionist pressure of one kind or another.

Igor Ogorodnev wrote yesterday on Russia Today that, "the media has wilfully misinterpreted Donald Trump's words to portray the most pro-Israel US president in history as an anti-Semite. It makes more sense to chide him for sacrificing US interests to please Benjamin Netanyahu." Here is my practical advice for Americans. Instead of accusing Trump of being an 'anti-Semite,' ask instead why your president is more loyal to Israel than most Israelis, let alone Jews.

"they're nothing, these girls. They are trash."

This is another example of "the virtue of hate." These psychotic posers who insist on improving the world have given themselves carte blanche to perform any evil deed they like because they believe that their cognitive abilities are superior.

The mentality that calls for copulating with a wall in Jerusalem also calls for taking the innocence away from children and young teens. Dershowitz, Epstein, Maxwell, Weinstein, etc., can be sexual deviants because they are giving the world things like trans-humanism, sodomy, abortion and usury.

Gilad your idea in 'Nakba II' where you write that the, "Jewish State is making a real effort to redefine the notion of Jewish 'kindness'" is the most on-point analysis you have ever written. The "virtue of hate" is why the "Who" wanders. The group that speaks modern Hebrew as well as the diaspora who seek Eretz Yisrael and Tikkun Olam will eventually destroy themselves because their 42 volumes of theology is fatally flawed. The hate that they exude always returns back on them.

Notice that it happened at Wye Plantation. That's Aspen Institute's East Coast satellite office. And as any minimally sentient pongid knows, Aspen is CIA. Is anybody dumb enough to think CIA didn't know exactly what transpired? Staging the blackmail threat at a famous CIA front is what you call messaging. The message is, We Know, Too.

Closed caption for the hard-of-thinking: "according to information provided by a ► ► CIA ◄ ◄ source, a stricken Clinton appeared to buckle."

What we always see since inception of the CIA regime is that they keep their puppet rulers under tight control. Of course they use foreign intelligence assets to lower the boom. That gives CIA operational control protected by eyes-only intelligence liaison agreements, which are "compacts" judicially deemed* beyond the treaty-making powers of Congress.

We have two criminal enterprises: the USG and the Jewish State. Reasonable people can differ about which is the henchman and which is the mastermind. But the crimes, in this case VIP kompromat, are indisputably collaborative efforts. Elected officials in the USA are puppets. But not Zionist puppets. They are puppets of Mossad and CIA.

Purging all the bad Jew apples won't do you any good. The Mormons or the Family or some other cult will take over, and you'll be just as fucked. Your problem is CIA impunity. Fix that. Lock up some criminal spooks. They'll sing like John McCain in VC hands and you'll be free.

The disregard of others and the dismissal of human life, symptomatic of the Epstein Orbit, extends beyond ethnicity, religious barriers and class.

That is very true, but there was something that made Epstein a predator of his fellow Jews. Possibly because he hated the low social status in the Jewish community that his father job as a city groundsman relegated the family to. In fact the father of Roberts/Giuffre had a similar, but rather better job than Epstein's father.

I have this feeling that whoever is elected president, like Clinton was, no matter what you promise on the campaign trail -- blah, blah, blah -- when you win, you go into this smoke-filled room with the twelve industrialist capitalist scum-fucks who got you in there. And you're in this smoky room, and this little film screen comes down, and a big guy with a cigar goes, "Roll the film."

And it's a shot of the Kennedy assassination from an angle you've never seen before that looks suspiciously like it's from the grassy knoll. And then the screen goes up and the lights come up, and they go to the new president, "Any questions?"

As if Clinton did not prey on vulnerable and impressionable young Jewish girls. Or Hugh Hefner. Or Larry Flynt.

The core difference is that there are less of them.

If a creepy older Gentile couple went into some poor Jewish borough in New York City that was the equivalent of a trailer park, they would have any success getting 14 year old Jewish girls to come stampeding out for $300.

There are not many Jewish girls roaming the roads of Miami at 1 am on drugs in rich neighborhoods (What were these girls doing in a wealthy neighborhood even before they met Epstein? What were they planning to do there?).

Where were these girls' parents? Why are Jewish girls better insulated? Is this a Zion conspiracy?

Don't get me wrong. The world is full of trashy Jewish young women like Lewinsky or even middle-aged ones like Sarah Silverman who will do anything with any Gentile who will advance their careers. Porn has always been loaded with working-class Jewish girls.

But these are young women over 21 who have made a decision. Not kids.

So how are Jews protecting their children?

Why aren't Jewish girls pouring out trailer parks willing to do anything for $300?

In America in 2019 just about every politician at any level except probably Ilhan Omar and Rashida Talib has been reduced into a Zionist puppet.

It is virtually impossible to think of any country, powerful or weak, wealthy or poor that exercises such complete control over any other country, powerful or weak, rich or poor as Zionist Israel does over our country, the US of A. To top it all, discussion on the issue of liberation from this suffocating control and what in effect is annexation, has not even begun because the gagging that prevents it reflects the complete level that such control has achieved. It is a phenomenon that defies all logic. Anything short of a second war of independence, will not move this country closer to the company of free and sovereign nations of which, to be honest, are few and far between.

Do any of these revelations surprise you anymore, Gilad? The Ghislaine Maxwell statement, "they're nothing, these girls. They're trash."? The Dersh comments calling a woman who was abused as a child "admitted prostitute and serial liar" who was "making her own decisions in life" when she was abused at age 15? Does any of it surprise you?

These people are informed, inculcated, immersed in this culture, thought, worldview:

Yossi Gurvitz: "The worst case, in my opinion, is the case of Maimonides, who decrees – first of all, he decrees that it is permissible to have sexual relations with a three-year-old girl. The age of consent is problematic. And second of all he decrees that if a Jew rapes a three-year-old non-Jewish girl, then she must be executed. Her, not him – because she tempted him to sin. And for this reason you have to treat her like an animal that put obstacles in a person's way, and he quotes some verse about a bull or something like that."

Why have the howls of outrage not echoed through the media? Why has the trumpet's call to action been silent? Why haven't the halls of Congress resounded with denunciation and the demands for justice.

Sexual trafficking of women and children is probably the century's greatest assault on girls and young women outside of Boko Haram's rampages and the crimes of the Islamic State against the Yazidis. In terms of sheer numbers, it exceeds those atrocities. High among the malefactors is the Epstein-Maxwell operation. Its foul activities went on for 25 years. It was known to law enforcement authorities for most of that time. The sole legal action taken was the one count lodged against Jeffrey Epstein in 2006 for "soliciting a minor." With the connivance of the highest authorities in Washington, it was a genteel house arrest that was a mockery of supposed punishment.

The most grotesque aspect of this sinister criminal ring was the knowing participation of dozens of members of the highest echelons of the American elite – possibly including two occupants of the White House. Rape – both statutory and violent – was the order of the day. So, too, involuntary confinement, extortion, blackmail, intimidation and god knows what other heinous crimes.

Yet, the protests and cries for punishment from our self-styled militants for women's rights have been muted – to understate things. A brief flurry of ritual shock in the weeks immediately after Epstein's arrest is all. Such condemnation as we heard or read placed the entire affair in the wadding of a general critique of the abuses carried out by privileged men since 1776. Now, just the usual titillation about the deplorable condition of Epstein's jail cell and tidbits about Lady Ghislaine – the socialite super madame.

Stunning Discrepancy

Compare this soft murmuring with the hell raised by so many about garden variety sexual harassment ascribed to public personalities. Al Franken driven out of the Senate. Garrison Keillor cast into the wilderness by NPR. Etc., etc. No rape, no violence -- an uninvited hand on the bare back of a decade-long acquaintance in the latter instance. The discrepancy is stunning.

We comb the news waiting to hear of the reception held by Elizabeth Drew and U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi in the former's swank Manhattan apartment to console and honor the victims. We wait breathlessly for a special issue of MSM exposing who was involved and what happened. We imagine deputations flooding the Capitol to insist on a swift, no-holds-barred investigation. We peer into the gloom for Hillary bearing the torch of women's emancipation. We anticipate The New York Times' mea culpa as to why they ignored the story for a quarter century. Perhaps #MeToo could sponsor a benefit concert in Central Park to raise funds for the hapless victims from around the world. After all, these odious crimes occurred on American soil, committed almost exclusively by Americans. The Clinton Foundation would be the logical place to ask for financial support. There is an ancient Crusader saying: "first the feast, then the morals."

We comb the news.

Mirages all. Isn't happening; won't happen

But why? The mind searches for explanations. Were the professional enforcers of strict no-harassment codes who police the nation seeking out evidence of stray male hands – especially if the women are well-educated, upper middle class and live in safe neighborhoods – on vacation? Or did they repress knowledge of friends who likely were implicated in the Epstein-Maxwell crimes? Did they find intolerable the idea that some of their favorites among the high and mighty are despicable low-lifes? Is the fact that the chief operational officer of the criminal enterprise was a woman inhibiting of incisive responses?
Let's also bear in mind that taking on the power elites (Epstein/Maxwell/ clients – maybe the CIA/Mossad) would indeed be ahard and dangerous business. By contrast, a Frankel or Keillor is a soft target. Those guys and their like are sensitive to their self-image and are not born fighters – moreover, their bosses have long practiced the art of the preemptive cringe.

Or, is it due to a core ambivalence that touches deep sensitivities about the myths we live by – held by men as well as women? Is it simply unpalatable that numerous of the elites who rule us – we America, the last best hope of humankind – and whom we admire are in fact among the scum of the earth?
Michelangelo: they feel that it is "better to nurse a delicious FANCY Than GAG ON TRUTH."

Powers of Sublimation

Finally, let's never underestimate the powers of sublimation in contemporary America. When facilitated by a lax media, and encouraged by self-serving politicos, there seem to be no limits to their capacity for self-censorship. Consider the most recent example of President Donald Trump's sexual abuses: E. Jean Carroll's highly graphic and persuasive description of Trump's assault on her in Bergdorf's. It survived little more than one or two news cycles.

Consider this, too, re. Epstein: The New Yorker gave us this bold cover story about the defense of Alan Dershowitz the notorious legal defender of unsavory types who was an Epstein attorney and who has been identified by at least one of Epstein's accusers as a participant in statutory rape. If you are having difficulty figuring out why the rush to provide him with several thousand words for self-justification and self-promotion, then I have a not-so-green island to sell you.

I personally have no hypotheses to offer in way of explanation. The silence of the arch 'feminist' militants is a mystery to me.

Michael,

Women don't deserve "mild" unwanted touching either. I hope maybe next time, that part of your article could be set aside. Also, I feel that your use of the term "arch "feminist" militants" is a mistake. I think you are asking a good question but this article seems more like a pejorative swipe at feminists than an actual inquiry when you use that phrase.

To answer your question plainly– women are neither worse nor better than men. As you must know, the movement for racial equality in the 60s was full of incredible sexism and cruelty by revolutionary men towards their sisters in the movement. Stokely Carmichael stated: 'the only position for women in SNCC is prone." MLK had some real problems with women. In other words, these men were hypocrites. They were both good and bad. Most movements for social change are filled with hypocrisy. There is freedom for some but not for all. This is shameful and I believe it is why revolutions never achieve their aim. Freedom must be for every person, not just one's chosen "worthy" group.

Women in the feminist movement also act shamefully when they fail to support justice for every abuse victim. Notice that you have difficulty criticizing Keiller (who also supports torture) and Franken because you like them. You are willing to minimize their actions because their politics and person meet your approval. This is what Democratic women are doing and have done when confronted by the victims of Bill and Hillary Clinton. Many Democratic women like this couple. They agree with their politics and they are willing to ignore wrongdoing by them because of that fact.

Your piece in a very real way, answers your own question. People won't see injustice in those whom they like. It's easier to pass it on by or minimize it. This is exactly the attitude we must all challenge inside ourselves. Until we do, until we are willing to admit to wrongdoing by those whom we like and agree with, abuse will continue.

Right, left or center– wrong is wrong. The abuse of women, men and children cannot be tolerated.

The arrest of Jeffrey Epstein was an opportunity for all Americans to have a good look at themselves but it did not last long. Someone, some intelligence agency decided that it was too painful to expose the higher ups and it will do to show the world the corruption involved in the whole affair .So Epstein is now gone. The whole sordid affair is no more .No more to be said .Move on folks ,what was the score last night at that baseball game ?

Gerry L Forbes , August 24, 2019 at 05:21

Professor Brenner is a quick study, noticing the dog that didn't bark. Others have pointed out that MeToo might not even be a dog (a well-trained poodle at best) but I am concerned that all these extralegal groups might be part of a more insidious strategy: destroying the rule of law and the protections it provides.

MeToo overturns the presumption of innocence making one guilty until proven innocent, inciting mob rule.

Antifa legitimizes force as speech, just what the fascists want.

Counterprotests seek to restrict freedom of speech when the worst thing the speakers can do for their cause is express their views.

Intelligence and law enforcement are always infiltrating organisations seeking social change through legal means. In Britain an undercover policeman even married an organizer in the course of his duties. (a Stasi trick although one presumes the tactic is timeless).

A possible scenario: one or more of Trump's strategies implodes causing civil unrest. Heavy-handed response leads to full-blown riots. Americans do what they are supposed to and elect Biden whose advancing dementia only makes things worse. Cities burn. Martial law is declared. Prison labour builds walls paid for by Mexico and Canada (Seriously. We don't want millions of self-righteous refugees blithering cluelessly about Thoreau's Civil Disobedience. Had enough of that during the Vietnam war. And the Chinese and Indians won't stand for hordes of white, black and latino people diluting their influence).

Good luck!

It looks for all the world that Epstein was basically pimping for the elitist of the insider elites throughout the capitalist universe. Sex trafficking has always been a big money-maker, even amongst street people, common reprobates and the clergy. The rich and powerful have fixers like Epstein to take care of all their nasty business. Does anyone think that muckety-mucks in high finance, the media monopoly, law enforcement, the courts, the highest levels of government and even some prominent female rainmakers may not have been among the beneficiaries of this service industry?

It doesn't surprise me one bit that those who were saved by Epstain's demise would exercise their power and influence to make sure things were quickly "resolved" and the public calmed. The tried and true remedy has always been for the media to simply change the subject. There is certainly no way they are pinning this one on Putin, so it will quickly be forgotten and lost down the memory hole. They don't even need to put on a charade about reforming the system because the relevant laws are already on the books. The real reform will be that Epstain's replacement will make sure that no future service providers ever live long enough to file any legal complaints.

'Boko Haram's rampages and the crimes of the Islamic State against the Yazidis'.

Aren't both products of the US. Second, surely a choice of just one American we'll-bring-you-democracy action over the last 20 years is far worse than Boko Haram? Indications to date are Epstein has been 'protected' by Rep and Dem since the early 80s, if not before.

Amanda , August 23, 2019 at 20:00

Thanks for posting on this.

Well, I'm actually not surprised–I always had the sense that the whole "MeToo" movement was controlled behind the scenes. Seems like it was quite useful when Kavanaugh was nominated for the Supreme Court (and I'm not a supporter of him–he's a Bushy and I'm pretty sure he had something to do with that Patriot Act), and Allyssa Milano was ready to go in telling us "we must believe all women" with regard to Dr. Chrissy Fraud and Julie Swetnick.

But they are interestingly quiet right now about the whole Epstein saga, and of course, there were no signs of support on the Friday before Epstein's supposed death, when there was a document drop, which indicated his victims named George Mitchell (D) and Bill Richardson (D) as men they were forced to have sex with. I think they may have issued a quick denial and then the MSM quickly moved away from it,never to be heard of again.

JWalters , August 23, 2019 at 18:13

Thanks to CN and Michael Brenner for maintaining attention on this extremely important topic. And while the #MeToo people are an understandable focus, the silence is deafening across the board. The politicians are all silent. The major news figures are silent. It's as if nobody had pulled back the curtain on the sociopaths who rule our society.

For convenience in posting to other sites, here is a link to the stunning CN interview with Whitney Webb on the Epstein case and its MANY ramifications.

bardamu , August 23, 2019 at 17:28

Just an idea --

A considerable factor in the Epstein case is not his individual perversity or crimes, but hierarchy and corruption, not just the corruption of the sexuality but the use of the sexuality in cementing, rewarding, and coercing corruption.

Perhaps not everyone who is concerned about sexual abuse is concerned about corruption and hierarchy in general. Perhaps not everyone concerned about sexual abuse even considers that hierarchy, with all its corruptions, is so much as unnecessary. For such people, the fact or apparent fact that Epstein is dead resolves matters insofar as they might be resolved–with all the hierarchy and its corruption in place, whatever such people may think of all that.

There is no way that Epstein could have had the type of business that he is widely regarded as having had without the extensive and ongoing involvement of both major political parties and major media entities.

So there will be no extensive and authentic push for investigation by Democrats, Republicans, or the push-style mass media that are allied to them. There is not likely to be a lot of investigation by foreign entities because those not allied with the above positions mostly do not find corruption in the United States to be news.

It seems that some who concern themselves with hierarchy might be principally concerned not with reducing hierarchy, but with changing which personnel or which demographics are favored.

It is a sad thing to recognize that one has fewer allies than one imagined. But it seems that for very many of us, the discoveries of the last few years have all been in this direction.

Seasoned Skeptic , August 23, 2019 at 16:37

The same corporate media behind the muted outrage response to the trafficking of girls and the anodyne narrative of Epstein's death just spent more than two years trying to convince the world that it was the Russians, not the fossilized Electoral College, that put Donald Trump into the Whitehouse based soley on rumor, suggestion, inference and accusations from well known liars and frauds

The same who brought us non existent WMDs in Iraq and moderate rebels and White Helmet rescuers in Syria, just to name a few more recent state sponsored fabrications. Justice and truth don't factor into the agenda of the swine who run our plutocracy.

I believe this horror story will be papered over, many accusers and collaborators will meet the same fate as Karen Silkwood and the think tanks and mainstream media talking heads will continue to bandy about the conspiracy theory trope while continuing to endorse the official false claims of the political establishment.

Gilad Atzmon's critique is far more substantive and more interesting, in part because he doesn't stoop to blaming class or feminists for the "missing howls of outrage" and "dearth of MeToo denunciations".

http://www.unz.com/gatzmon/predators-united/

"Not Just Weinstein: The Year #MeToo Rocked and Shocked the Jewish World" was the title of a 2018 Haaretz article that reviewed the large number of Jews involved in sex scandals that year. "Over the past year," Haartez wrote, "a high number of powerful Jewish men have been accused of sexual misconduct. While it has provided fodder for anti-Semites, activists say addressing the problem is vital."

Haaretz listed some of the prominent Jewish men accused of predatory sexual behaviour. "In addition to (Harvey) Weinstein and (Leon) Wieseltier, the list of Jewish men implicated in #MeToo over the past 12 months includes former Democratic senator Al Franken; ousted CBS chief Les Moonves; actors Dustin Hoffman, Jeffrey Tambor and Jeremy Piven; directors Woody Allen, James Toback and Brett Ratner; playwright Israel Horowitz; journalists Mark Halperin and Michael Oreskes; conductor James Levine; and radio show hosts Leonard Lopate and Jonathan Schwartz."

Apparently someone decided to 'clean the swamp'. Harvey Weinstein was just an early bird. In 2018 we also learned about the Nxivm sex cult and the role of Clare Bronfman at its centre. The Jewish Forward wrote that Nxivm's leader attracted "several prominent figures to his group, including heiress Clare Bronfman, who pleaded guilty in April to credit card fraud and harbouring an undocumented immigrant who provided unpaid "labor and services."

Bronfman is the daughter of the legendary ultra Zionist billionaire Edgar Bronfman (1929 –2013) who was president of the World Jewish Congress. In his obituary, Edgar Bronfman was described by Haaretz as "prince of the Jews." His daughter has been ordered to pay a penalty of $6 million out of her $200 million fortune, and she faces up to two years in prison.

When it seemed the Jewish universe couldn't cope with any more scandals involving predatory sexual behaviour, the Epstein affair resurfaced. The Jeffrey Epstein spectacle is one of the biggest of its kind in the history of America ensnaring presidents and prime ministers. Some of the world's most influential men in cultural, financial and academic fields are allegedly implicated in predatory behaviour with underage girls. And it doesn't take a genius to observe that the Epstein drama is, unfortunately, a 'Jewish drama.'

Bloomberg, not exactly an 'anti-Semitic' outlet, dug into The Complicated Orbit of Jeffrey Epstein. Zionist enthusiast Leslie Wexner was identified as Epstein's 'patron'. The Jewish virtual library informs us that Wexner "often support[s] .. Jewish projects. He serves as Honorary Vice Chairman of the Board of Congregation Aguda Achim [And] established the Wexner Foundation, which runs both a Graduate Fellowship and an Israel Fellowship Program."

Bloomberg lists the following as amongst Epstein's 'business partners': Harvey Weinstein, Mort Zuckerman, Donny Deutsch, Nelson Peltz, Ehud Barak and Ponzi aficionado Steven Hoffenberg.

Ghislaine Maxwell, the daughter of notorious Zionist pension plunderer Robert Maxwell, is described by Bloomberg as Epstein's 'Inner Circle.' And then there is Alan Dershowitz who has been labouring tirelessly to try to convince the American media and anyone else willing to listen that he didn't have sex with underage girls.

Again I find myself admitting that the list of Jewish names surrounding an unsavoury character, this time Epstein, resembles my Bar Mitzvah's guest list: a lot of Jewish names with just a few goyim at the margin.

This raises critical questions, the most elementary of which is, why? Why are so many Jewish men currently in the news in connection with sexually predatory behaviour? What is it about these rich and influential people that pushes them over the edge?

And there are deeper questions that beg attention. Why is it that with so many Jews in academia and media ordinarily so clever in explaining in a 'professorial manner' the psychology and sociology behind every world development and political shift, not one has volunteered to explain the cultural, ideological and spiritual continuum between Weinstein and Epstein and beyond? How is it that the academics and think tanks that are so adept in analysing 'cultural clashes' and, as they call it, 'Islamofascism,' are unwilling to analyse the roots of the cultural crisis at the core of the Epstein saga?

And I must extend this inquiry just one step further, why does the Jewish solidarity industry that cares so much for Palestine, Immigrants, the Civil Rights Movement and LGBT issues remain silent when it comes to the crimes committed, and on a mass scale, against underage girls just a few blocks from JVP's New York headquarters?

Litchfield , August 23, 2019 at 17:08

Uh, wait just a minute.
Good post up until this:

"why does the Jewish solidarity industry that cares so much for [1]Palestine, [2]Immigrants, the [3]Civil Rights Movement and [4]LGBT issues remain silent when it comes to the crimes committed, and on a mass scale, against underage girls just a few blocks from JVP's New York headquarters?"

Quick IQ test: of the four issues named, which one does not belong?
Yep, number 1.
These other groups are not known for their vocal or otherwise support of Palestine or, more precisely, the civil, political, property, and human rights of Palestinians.

This sentence sure looks like a misdirection game. Unless "cares for Palestine" actually is meant to mean, "cares for fighting indigenous rights in Palestine."

Anarcissie , August 23, 2019 at 12:57

This is all pretty stupid. #metoo was about people with legitimate complaints being ignored. 'Howls of outrage' were appropriate to get the needed attention. The Epstein business is hardly being ignored and involves so many bigwigs that its ramifications and effects are only beginning to be known. Cops, lawyers, journalists, and conspiracy theorists are on the case. So what are you all, including the author, talking about at such length?

Seamus Padraig , August 23, 2019 at 13:21

So, why hasn't Ghislane Maxwell been arrested yet? What's your theory there?

0ccupy on! , August 23, 2019 at 13:48

Dear Anarcissie, Puhleeze! You're comparing what Epstein 'allegedly' did with #MeToo's Al Franken's 'alleged' unwanted French kiss? Where is your sense of proportion?

Litchfield , August 23, 2019 at 15:26

In response to Anarcisse, all I can do is tell her to reread the article.

Why isn't #MeToo using its political and PR muscle to keep the pressure on Bill Barr to conduct a genuine investigation, which would include interrogating a number of big-wigs and also, Primus inter pares, Ghislaine Maxwell?

Until we see Maxwell subpoena'd and compelled to appear for questioning, we in the media peanut gallery will continue to assume that no serious investigation is to be espied in our crystal balls.

Re "Cops, lawyers, journalists, and conspiracy theorists are on the case. So what are you all, including the author, talking about at such length?"
This sounds a bit trollish (and sarcastic) to me, in particular the grouping "cops, lawyers, journalists and conspiracy theorists."
What we actually need is a wide-ranging and deep-delving investigation by the DOJ or by Congress. We need to get to the bottom of Epstein's ties to various intelligence communities. We need see chapter and verse as to how the sex trafficking interfaced with intelligence work. We need to know what is hidden under concrete at Little Saint James Island. Among other things. A genuine investigation, or multiple investigations, might allow the "ct" phrase to be retired in connection with this complex of crimes as it would uncover genuine evidence. Failing such a genuine investigation it can be inferred that evidence is being destroyed and/or suppressed and/or not developed (e.g., via under-oath questioning).

It is decidedly odd that Anarcisse thinks that "the case" can be adequately pursued by the four groups she names. "Cops"?

Karenvista , August 23, 2019 at 19:43

Unfortunately, of fortunately for some, William "Bill" Barr was involved in Iran-Contra and the Reagan/Bush Administration's dirty wars that not only illegally funded our death squads in Central America but also imported cocaine and promoted crack. As a side benefit, they also captured and trafficked in kids from the region, so anyone counting on him will be sadly disappointed.

Thank you for this. It's insane that the average person is not screaming for justice and for the disbanding of sex trafficking rings and the jailing of those participating and running them. Simply insane. And now, a woman who was going to Washington DC to testify against traffickers has 'disappeared'. I can't even find her disappearance, although reported by friends on social media, in the news at all. Isn't that interesting?

Bob In Portland , August 23, 2019 at 12:32

"Target" is the word. Franken was clearly an attempt by the Democratic leadership to push the party farther to the right. Better to have someone in the Senate to vote for wars and ignore social issues. This cleansing, on the surface, looked like a right-wing attack on Franken, check out the "complainants". But who did the DNC back during the primaries?

All sorts of veterans of the military-industrial complex, from the CIA through the military Buttigieg is Naval intelligence and worked in Afghanistan trying to track down the financing of the Taliban. Seems to me that the mystery of where the money's coming from could be easily answered by asking the soldiers who are guarding the opium fields. In the 2018 Democratic primaries the DNC backed over fifty "former" intelligence/military/Department of State et al.

Much of the suspicions about the Epstein case involve really high-end politicians, to include two Presidents. There are hints of Epstein's connections to Mossad. That information is even more valuable to the CIA, who would rather embarrass someone out of office than kill them. Someone thought it was time to pull the plug on him, and it didn't happen because of a sudden outrage by progressive women. Even Gloria Steinem, the woman chosen by the CIA to lead their faction of the feminist movement, is silent.

And, of course, many iconic feminist groups depend on the financing of the powerful. Realpolitik. Compromise everybody.

The Me Too movement was an identity politics scheme initiated by elite bourgeois women actresses and their wannabes. From its very beginning , these well-to-do so-called liberals in the Democratic party had no interest in the plight of working class women. The working class victims of the neighbors and the country-club set of the Me Too leadership did not fit into the desired profile of the rich and spoiled.

Those on the roster of the status-seeking rich women do not have time for those who do not share their glamour and Beverly Hills addresses. Those who suffer the mundane and daily sexual harassment and outright sexual assault at their blue-color jobs just don't fit in with "right" crowd to be worthy of the fake Me Too outrage.

Clark M Shanahan , August 23, 2019 at 11:47

You said it so well, Mr Brenner. Thanks, My disgust started with the DNC's copyrighting the term "RESISTANCE". I agree totally w/ML on MeToo being a reactionary movement.

from an earlier comment I made on exclusionary politics:
"What about that BS imbroglio over the Women's March and Farrakhan
Should we have asked all Jewish participants to denounce apartheid Israel, before being allowed to take part..?"

It is about class. #Me too was a reactionary moment at its core- not a movement, a moment of the "better classes." In one telling comment on a recent Consortium News Epstein article, a poster sited a Vanity Fair piece and claimed Lady Ghislaine had once called these poor girls "trash." You know, throwaway children so a waif on a street corner late at night or working in a spa gets trafficked and the bourgeoisie and the upper classes "don't really care, do you?" (Melania's jacket was a clue.)

But a Hollywood starlet gets patted on her bum? The horrors. It's about class -- always has been, always will be. If the burgeoning underclass in their precarity doesn't one day choose to rise up en masse, I will be disappointed. And I am prepared for disappointment.

Professor Brenner's choice of topic here is somewhat suspect as far as I can tell. Given his professional background I would expect him to focus on Jeff Epstein's not so stellar career on Wall Street and the resulting melt down of the world economy after the subprime mortgage debacle. Those topics more aligned with his forte. But nothing on that.

Instead he turns his focus to criticize the ME TOO movement and others, "Why no howling?". He blew it, he seems to have made a pretty grievous error. I

He flirts with discussing MOSSAD and CIA and their potential involvement in this story quickly moving on to provide a hot link to lend exposure to the extremely troubling history of Alan Dershowitz and his ties to Jeff Esptein.

Chose the link and read the story. His effort here to me is puzzling, unless he sees this as him "howling".

If in fact Brenner is virtue signaling he has failed himself miserably. What he has submitted here seems to openly blame victims and their advocates and appears to be his attempt distance himself from "elite status"by naming a few caught up in this story. Given his profile at The Globalist:

https://www.theglobalsist.com/contribtors/micheal-p-brenner/

he seems to travel in some very elitist circles himself.

It breaks my heart that the only comment is about the article rather than the issue addressed. Sexual predators, no matter their sex, economic or social stature, politics, nationality or racial background are heartless, soulless, vampires. Blood suckers. My guess is that it is just hard to admit we humans have a shadowy side, part of which is envy of those who appreciates to get away with it.

"Why have the howls of outrage not echoed through the media? Why has the trumpet's call to action been silent? Why haven't the halls of Congress resounded with denunciation and the demands for justice?"

The monolithic, feckless "media" got the same memo Acosta did. "Congress" and conceptions of "justice" are as oil and water. And besides, they don't f*** with the "well-connected".

AnneR , August 23, 2019 at 08:33

In my opinion, admittedly not worth the time taken to express it, Mr Brenner has raised a thought-provoking point. Where indeed is the pious Me Too lot. And as he indicates the vast majority in/of the Me Too "movement" were among the privileged, the bourgeoisie. So too the Me Too's much heralded victims.

But the victims of human trafficking (mainly for sex, though not always), whether children, adolescents, young adults – well, they're clearly *not* from the same social class, not of the bourgeoisie. They and the treatment, abuse of them matter less, it would seem than straying hands on the backs, bums of adult females within the upper middle classes. Especially when that abuse is at the hands of someone from the bourgeoisie, particularly from that segment of the haute bourgeoisie within the ruling elites.

The ruling elites (and CIA-Mossad) simply want this business buried so that the circus and the information flowing from it can continue through other means Me Too has no interest, nothing to be gained from, no ax to grind in this affair – apparently. Which would seem to indicate that it was as shallow and spiteful as it appeared in the main.

I'm not saying that sexual assault should ever be ignored, that females who are forced to submit to sex – rape, surely?- in order to work, continue working should not have justice. Indeed they should and the men who do such things should not only lose their jobs but also spend a nice lengthy time in a real prison. But Me Too seemed to be more about identity politics rather than really changing societal and police/court room attitudes toward rape and sexual assault.

That such as Epstein was allowed, given the nod and wink, to carry on as he had and that the Me Too movement has so far been silent about the whole business does indeed suggest that the women involved in that so-called movement were had motives other than really wanting a big change in socio-cultural attitudes toward and about male-female relationships, interactions, conceptions of each other.

Yup. It was about as big an oversight as BLM giving Hillary "Super-predators" Clinton a pass during the 2016 campaign, while protesting against Bernie Sanders.

Bob In Portland , August 23, 2019 at 18:17

Whether or not Clinton abused Lewinsky is debatable, the question being consensuality, but what is clear is that there were intelligence operatives all around the case, which always points to others beyond the stage actors the public sees pulling the strings. Lucianne Goldberg has been trying to get dirt on Democratic presidents from 1960 on, when she tried to get close to JFK before settling for Johnson. In 1972 she worked for the North American Newspaper Alliance, a CIA front, looking for dirt in the McGovern campaign. Lewinsky's "friend", Linda Tripp, has a military intelligence background. It appears to me that the Lewinsky scandal was planned to happen.

I suspect that Bill was easy to hook for Epstein's operation.

Herman , August 23, 2019 at 12:31

Tom Kath, the message I took from the article is that there are too many third rails that can be touched and there is not an attempt to find out the truth about possible widespread and heinous criminality. The way Epstein did jail time in the first instance should have touched the antennae of investigative journalists. Perhaps they will dig deeper but Mister Brenner is right to be suspicious. In fairness it is too early to starting pointing fingers but it is probable that what we know will be as far as it goes..

Maricata , August 23, 2019 at 12:32

Indignation at the failure of others might be suspect, but not rational criticism. In fact, lack of rational critique is what is suspect.

In 2003 I saw it with my own eyes and the founder of this website founded it as a venue where the truth could be told. Not madness, disinformation or no information but the real story. Robert Parry left Washington "Journalism" after he saw a coalescing group think during the Iran Contra hearings as a group think settled in Washington and all journalists that were not on point felt the sharp end of it. At the end Bob had shown a great amount of evidence that CIA Chief Bush met with Iranian officials in the fall of 1979 and arrangements were made to prolong the captivity of the hostages until after the election.

The fact that the hostages were released to the exact minute that Reagan was sworn in was a gift from the Iranians but not one paper asked one question. When the Iran Contra hearings got close to figuring out that the arms for money to fight the Sandinistas in Nicaragua went way back and it was becoming clear that the president and vice president might be involved both democrats and republicans on the hearing abruptly shut it down without reason.

You might ask yourself then "Where is the public outcry". Well my own state of mind at the time told me that what just happened was obviously not just a coincidence and the lame story that the Iranians waited until the minute that Reagan was sworn in because they were afraid of him was a total pile of dung. Why would the Iranians want in such a highly visible way for all to see their capitulation to Reagan and show the World their fear. But that's the story they ran with and soon all was forgotten.

If you still do not have a clue then you should read the many excellent articles in the archives of Robert Parry and his quests to uncover the truth and tell the stories that official Washington just refused to do.

[Aug 22, 2019] Epstein's Purported Madam Now a Focus in Sex Abuse Cases

Maxwell might well be prosecutors' next main target and she could potentially name others connected to the multimillionaire.
Aug 22, 2019 | www.theepochtimes.com

"She would tell me, I am going to take care of the house," Alessi said in the deposition, adding later that he drove Maxwell to spas around South Florida to look for young women who could do "massages" for Epstein -- their code for sexual acts.

"I remember one occasion or two occasions she would say to me, 'Juan, give me a list of all the spas in Palm Beach County,'" Alessi said. "And I will drive her from one to the other one."

In one of the lawsuits, Virginia Roberts Giuffre laid out in detail what was believed to be Maxwell's role in Epstein's alleged sex trafficking ring, which other women have echoed in similar claims. Giuffre, 15 at the time, says she was working at a Mar-a-Lago club when she was approached by Maxwell about a way to earn good money: learn massage therapy and get to know Epstein as a man who could give her a bright future.

Giuffre says in a sworn affidavit that she was trained by Maxwell and Epstein to become "everything a man wanted me to be" and that she was flown on Epstein's private planes to his properties in New Mexico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Paris, and New York.

[Aug 22, 2019] New Indictments Expected in Wake of Epstein's Death, Lawyers Say

Aug 22, 2019 | www.theepochtimes.com

Two criminal defense attorneys told The Epoch Times that if the government was investigating Epstein to such a degree that they were able to make an arrest, it can be assumed that federal prosecutors in New York were also gathering evidence on those in his inner circle.

One attorney specifically mentioned the disgraced financier's former girlfriend, British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell , who allegedly assisted Epstein in luring minors. He said Maxwell would be prosecutors' next main target and she could potentially name others connected to the multimillionaire.

"She's going down. She's going to take everybody with her," Jeffery Greco, a New York criminal defense lawyer and former prosecutor, said in a phone call. "They are going to ask her, 'Who else did you provide these girls to?' I think that she is going to start talking."

"Remember, it's just pieces to a puzzle, so she may not know everything. But they are going to use her to place the people at those parties, so if she can say, 'I was there on this date and this senator and so-and-so was there,' that will be enough for them to get them involved."

Epstein often hosted parties at his Upper East Side mansion in New York City . He owned the property, which has been valued at $77 million, through an LLC. The seven-story building is located on East 71st Street, between Fifth and Madison avenues.

Nearly 2,000 pages of documents relating to Epstein were unsealed on Aug. 9, revealing allegations against a number of rich and powerful men, just a day before his apparent suicide. The court documents, from a lawsuit by one of Epstein's accusers, Virginia Giuffre, listed new names allegedly involved in Epstein's trafficking ring and more information on the role Maxwell played.

In a 2016 deposition, Giuffre claimed she was directed by Maxwell to have sex with a number of powerful men.

Greco believes the biggest implication of Epstein's death is that there will be "more and more indictments coming down." He said the government will be pressured to file "additional charges" against "additional people" and will be more aggressive in their methods.

"I think there is this extra pressure on the government now to really focus on these [unnamed] co-conspirators, no matter how high up because it's become so public," he said.

According to court documents , Epstein sexually exploited and abused dozens of minor girls at his homes in New York City and in Palm Beach, Florida, among other locations. Since his death, a slew of investigations have been opened or demanded into his death. The official autopsy result has been delayed , "pending further information at this time."

Julie Rendelman, a New York criminal defense attorney and former homicide prosecutor, said those who helped Epstein or assisted him along the way are now going to be the "focus of the future investigations" and will be "kind of the face of the Epstein case, instead of him."

With Epstein dead, four women accused of recruiting underage girls for sex with the pedophile financier are coming into focus, including British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell - who has denied all claims.

On Monday, AG Barr said that Epstein's alleged co-conspirators "should not rest easy" just because Epstein won't have his day in court.

"Let me assure you that case will continue on against anyone who was complicit with Epstein," said Barr in remarks to a New Orleans law enforcement group, "Any co-conspirators should not rest easy. Victims deserve justice and will get it."

Maxwell is said to be Epstein's ex-girlfriend turned business associate. Her current location is unknown.

"She was more of a partner in his obsession, really," said Miami Herald reporter Julie Brown , who spent more than two years looking into Epstein's controversial 2008 plea deal. "And there are allegations that she was involved in having sex with some of these girls as well."

[Aug 12, 2019] Jeffrey Epstein RIP by Philip Giraldi

The big question now is will his pimpette Giselle Maxwell sing
Aug 12, 2019 | www.unz.com

The Jeffrey Epstein saga goes on even though convicted pedophile Epstein himself has been found hanged in his jail cell in Manhattan. One has to wonder how he managed to kill himself, if that is indeed the case, as he was reportedly on suicide watch at the prison and it is to be presumed that he had been stripped of any clothing or accoutrements that would have been usable to that end. So, he is dead but did he do it himself or was he helped? There are many prominent individuals and powerful government agencies that will be very pleased that he is gone as most of his secrets will have gone to the grave with him.

There was certainly a warning that something might happen. Two weeks ago, he was reportedly found unconscious in his jail cell with marks around his neck. It was suggested that he might have tried to kill himself or, alternatively, had been beaten up by another inmate. There was also considerable speculation that some aggrieved part of the Deep State was trying to kill him to silence him.

The subsequent press reports revealed that Epstein had been taken to a hospital, but there has been no follow-up about his condition or status apart from a brief note that he had been returned to the same jail under suicide watch. In any event, the story had pretty much died, which is precisely what a lot of the high rollers and politicians who became involved with Epstein would have liked to see happen. Nevertheless, investigations of the "Affair Epstein" reportedly were continuing at the federal level as well as in New York State and Florida.

The most recent elaboration of the Epstein saga prior to his death came from his former patron Leslie Wexner, the canny Jewish business tycoon who built an Ohio based fashion empire called L Brands from scratch. L Brands, by the way, includes Victoria's Secret, which features young women strutting around in their underwear. The 81 year old Wexner claimed in a 564 word letter that the wily Epstein "misappropriated vast sums of money" from him. In the letter Wexner admitted to having lost at least $46 million from his family money, but some media accounts are suggesting that the fraud amounted to much more, possibly as much as $500 million. And the alleged theft also extended to property, to include the series of transactions that left Epstein possessing the Upper East Side mansion where he resided and did his filming of celebrities having sex with young girls, estimated to be worth $56 million, as well as the commercial airliner that became the Lolita Express and a yacht.

(Leslie Wexner. Credit: American Academy of Achievement/ YouTube)

Now, either sum of purloined money is not exactly pocket change even for multi-billionaire Wexner, even if rag trade magnate was enamored of the massages he was getting at Epstein's house. It would take an extremely poor businessman to be unaware of losing that kind of money and that much property unless his name were Donald Trump.

Wexler claimed that he began to sever ties with Epstein in 2007, after Florida authorities charged Jeffrey in early 2006 with multiple counts of molestation and unlawful sexual activity with a minor. In 2008, Epstein pleaded guilty to state charges of solicitation of prostitution from a minor and was required to register as a sex offender, but he received an astonishingly mild jail sentence of eighteen months with a private cell, unlimited visitors including young women, and daily release so he could be picked up by his driver to go to work in his Palm Beach office, a bit of incomprehensible leniency that is currently being subjected to criminal investigation by the state of Florida. After the sentence was handed down the county sheriff observed that "He was astonished that [Epstein] had to go to prison at all."

Indeed, the entire Florida side of the Epstein story seems to have disappeared down some memory hole. Epstein was convicted for his involvement with prostitution, but the only remaining issue was the consequences that he faced. That is where other players stepped in, including Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz, Palm Beach county state attorney Barry Krischer, and the Miami office U.S. Attorney Alexander Acosta.

My belief that Jeffrey Epstein was an intelligence agent is based principally on Acosta's comments when being cleared by the Trump transition team. He was asked "Is the Epstein case going to cause a problem [for confirmation hearings]?" "Acosta testified that he'd had just one meeting on the Epstein case. He'd cut the non-prosecution deal with one of Epstein's attorneys because he had 'been told' to back off, that Epstein was above his pay grade. 'I was told Epstein belonged to intelligence and to leave it alone.'"

The questions about Epstein remain even though he is gone, but one fears that the authorities will be disinclined to further investigate a dead man. It appears that no one in the various investigative agencies or the mainstream media has been interested in what Acosta meant, even though it would be simple enough to ask him. Who told him to back off? And how did they explain it? And then there is Epstein's Austrian passport. Was it fake or real, with a real name and photo substitution or alternation of both picture and name? How did he get it? Austrian passports are highly desirable in intelligence circles because the country is neutral and its holders can travel just about everywhere without a visa.

And there's more. As a former intelligence officer myself, there is little doubt in my mind that what Epstein did and how he did it was an intelligence operation. There is no other viable explanation for his filming of prominent politicians and celebrities having sex with young girls. And as for the question of whom Epstein might have been working for, the most likely answer is Mossad . The CIA would have had no interest in compiling dossiers on prominent Americans, but American movers and shakers like Bill Clinton, with his 26 trips on the Lolita Express , former Governor Bill Richardson, or former Senator George Mitchell are precisely the types of "agents of influence" that the Mossad would seek to coerce or even blackmail into cooperation.

Other compelling evidence for a Mossad connection came from Epstein's relationship with Ghislaine Maxwell, who reportedly served as his key procurer of young girls. Ghislaine is the daughter of Robert Maxwell , who died or possibly was assassinated in mysterious circumstances in 1991. Maxwell was an Anglo-Jewish businessman, very cosmopolitan in profile, like Epstein, a multi-millionaire who was very controversial with what were regarded as ongoing ties to Mossad. After his death, he was given a state funeral by Israel in which six serving and former heads of Israeli intelligence listened while Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir eulogized : "He has done more for Israel than can today be said."

Israel and high-profile Jewish players also have continued to turn up like bad pennies in the Epstein case, but no one seems to be interested in pursuing that angle. Epstein clearly had contact with former Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres and Ehud Barak and Wexner also had close ties to the Jewish state and its government. Barry Krischer, who may have been the source of the comments to Acosta, has received the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) award . Evidence also suggests that Krischer, cooperating with rabidly pro-Israel Epstein lawyer Alan Dershowitz, played a key role in the failure to adequately punish Epstein for his conviction for pedophilia. According to a recent New Yorker story , the police investigators of the Epstein case observed that "the tone and tenor of the discussions of this case with Krischer changed completely" after his meetings with Dershowitz. At that point, the two detectives most involved in the case found themselves under extreme pressure. They were surveilled constantly by private investigators and they even had their household trash snatched and searched. And the resulting plea agreement with Krischer " was due to the efforts of Dershowitz, who had proceeded to attack and smear the victims."

Krischer claims that his office "subpoenaed witnesses took evidence to a Grand Jury, which returned a single felony count indictment against Epstein of soliciting prostitution," but the reality appears to be that he worked with the defense to get Epstein off. There was plenty of evidence based on more than forty interviews with victims to convict Epstein, but instead of having him arrested, Krischer instead set up the Grand Jury with no mention of underage victims to mitigate the possible consequences. He also did not inform the victims of what he had arranged so they could challenge the verdict and penalty, a violation of Crime Victims Rights Act.

The Palm Beach police who worked the case at the time told The Miami Herald as part of an investigation published in November that they felt pressured by Krischer to downgrade Epstein's case to a misdemeanor, or to drop it entirely. They said "the fix was in." Acosta, more recently, did not refer to Krischer by name during an early July news conference, but spoke of the Palm Beach County state's attorney. He described his own office as stepping in to ensure Epstein faced some form of punishment. "Simply put, the Palm Beach State Attorney's Office was willing to let Epstein walk free. No jail time. Nothing," Acosta said. "Prosecutors in my former office found this to be completely unacceptable, and we became involved."

After thirteen months in country club jail in Palm Beach, Epstein was released. At his mansion in New York City, he subsequent had an artist paint a mural of himself in jail, evidently as an insider joke for those who knew about his time behind bars. End of story? Not exactly, even though Epstein is now dead. But the key questions go unanswered including was he a spy for Israel? And what about the Krischer-Dershowitz connection that kept him from being punished commensurate with his crimes? Did those instructions also come from Israel or from its friends in the U.S. Justice Department? Will the three simultaneous investigations currently taking place even continue and ask the right questions now that the target of the investigation is gone? Given the high stakes in the game, quite likely, there will be a cover-up both of how Epstein lived and how he died. We the public will never know what Epstein was all about.

For too many people, it's the ideal outcome. Bill Clinton, Alan Dershowitz, Prince Andrew those are the ones we spotted.

Moreover, it's possible the pool was about to expand a lot. Drawn by the scent of that supposed five hundred million dollar fortune, a law firm was searching for more of Epstein's victims. Who knows who they would have named?

There would have been a welter of civil suits, All the beans could have been spilled.

And gee now we'll never know. I doubt if much trace of that supposed fortune is ever going to be found. It never was clear how Epstein made money, or even who he made it from, and yet he had multiple fabulous estates -- including his own private island -- and a private Boeing 727. Whoever supplied the funds for all this is going to go away, leaving no trail behind them.

I'm reminded of the considerably more obscure Zygier case.

Zygier was an Australian Jew who followed that familiar path for idealistic young Jews from the diaspora : get smitten with Israel, make aliyah , and serve in Israel's noble armed forces.

In Zygier's case, his service took the form of joining the Mossad. Evidently, he saw something there that offended his refined ethical sensibilities; he was locked up and held incommunicado pending trial. Sadly, he 'committed suicide' -- in a cell under twenty-four hour suicide watch -- before he could appear in court.

The M.O. seems the same.

They can still sue his estate. Not like it matters much for civil suits if he is dead. His testimony would not have been credible or helpful for either side.

I can't even understand why he came back to the states to be arrested. With all his contacts he must have known that if he came here that would be the outcome. If the powers that be wanted to get rid of him he would have had an accident ages ago. Maybe it was more important to have him arrested and instill fear in all the people caught up by his honey trap it certainly would help to exert pressure if there was a particular agenda that needed to be accomplished. My feeling is that he has been whisked off to a new life with his awesome retirement package.

Beautiful, for a couple of reasons:

TPTBs really, REALLY, don't care what the rest think or feel. Well, except for one thing, maybe: "Look what we can do to one of us. Now .think a bit, what can we do to YOU?".

The "rest", at the same time, also don't care much. Most people won't simply register this. So much for "informing/educating people to create a positive social change".

The very mechanisms of society which are supposed to prevent this, let alone investigate and punish the perpetrators, obviously, won't do it. Independent ..hahahaha ..media. Judiciary. Police. Famed security services.
If this had happened anywhere else in the world the USA media/public would've been shitting, with reason, all over it. Not in the land of free. Well, that does prove that American society is exceptional.

This is really "in your face". Scary, actually, how "they" really don't care. Not because "they" are what they are. Because "we" are what "we" are.

It would be interesting to see what's going to happen to the plebs involved. My take: some disciplinary action now. And, perhaps, the same guy(s) employed somewhere with much better pay and perks.

Or dead. Doesn't' matter, of course.

What a world. Just beautiful.

"If I film a person having sex with an underage girl I have committed a major felony. How many people would use that film as blackmail knowing that its release will land him in prison?"

For the same reason people build nuclear weapons but don't ever use them: the potential for MAD is there should anyone get out of line and attack so there is never an attack. The money keeps flowing to Israel and no administration votes against them in the UN.* Besides, if Epstein were contracted by Mossad, they presumably would have copies of this dirt and they could easily release it through a third party. That's certainly a calculation the victims would have made. We already know a former Israeli PM with high level contacts in the IDF and, possibly, Mossad not only had personal contact with Epstein but also had a business relationship with him through a company based in Israel. Wexner could have funneled money through that company to conceal the operation's finances, which would have been beyond the ability of US regulators to examine.

Personally, I find it incredulous that Wexner would have been unaware of missing $500 million. That's an extraordinary sum. We know Wenxer is an ardent Israeli nationalist who has in the past organized fellow Jewish billionaires (Study Group / Mega Group) for the purposes of promoting "Jewish charity" the perfect front to run an operation. Study this man's ties and you will almost certainly find Mossad. Wexner was the perfect means to fund Epstein's operation: wealthy, ethnocentric, and highly connected to other big time players in finance, politics, and the entertainment industries (great for recruiting) – the perfect cover to shield Israel from blow back in the unlikely event the operation became public. This was Mossad. Count on it. it's what I would do.

*Sorta funny how American administrations stopped voting against Israeli interests around the time when video cameras became widespread, isn't it? Further, has anyone ever wondered what happens when all those freshly minted democrats join leadership in their freshmen luxury tours of Israel? Seems like the perfect time to gather some dirt. I wonder if their hotel rooms get special visits from young women? If I were honest CIA, I might have a problem with this activity if I were honestly working for this country and not a certain other one, that is.

So many questions and we are supposed to have confidence in the same FBI and DOJ that created Russiagate to investigate another stinking pile of corruption? Why not appoint James Comey as a special counsel to investigate the Epstein affair? That will keep everything hidden for a few years.

Here's what bothers me. George Mitchell, Bill Richardson even Bill Clinton are has beens and, let's face it, to a septuagenarian lecher the difference between an 16 year old and an 18 year old girl is a distinction without a difference. Epstein could have run his version of the Playboy Mansion unhindered for the rest of his life had he just made sure his 'pleasure units' had drivers licenses that said they were 18. Hell, Monica Lewinsky was 21 and Bill Clinton risked his presidency to conceal that affair. If blackmail is your game you don't need teenyboppers to ruin a political career. Ask Gary Hart or John Edwards!

There is something missing in this Epstein drama. Something so devastating that it goes beyond any single person's survival. Something that would bring down an agency ( like the FBI ) were it to be revealed.

But the murder-suicide of Epstein outright confirms it. Welcome to the USSA. It's a big club and YOU ain't in it!

Unless you are a billionaire, Zionist or top level agent useful to them of course.

But it does make you wonder what Americans will do. If the British crown had done a 1/10th of what the current elite does You have to wonder if Ernst Zundel's prophecy will come true in the end.

As to how Epstein got his fake passport, it's highly likely he got it from Ronald Lauder, son of Estée Lauder and currently President of the World Jewish Congress. At the time Epstein received his fake Austrian passport, Lauder was US ambassador to Austria.

It's time Wexner's shady past received more scrutiny, as it would reveal everything about the true nature and extent of Epstein's operation. Wexner has had both ties to the mob and the CIA. He shared the same very private terminal for fueling and customs inspections at Rickenbacker Airport with the CIA's Southern Air Transport airline (later Evergreen Aviation), known for its "Torture Taxi" rendition flights and drug trafficking. Wexner used Southern Air Transport to fly clothing in from Hong Kong, which back in the day was the main heroin hub. It may be that Wexner received a cut of the CIA's drug money for serving as a front, at a time when Epstein was doing the book keeping for Wexner.

One of Wexner's brands is called Express, which started out as Limited Express. No doubt "Lolita Express" is a play on that, as there was a habit of using variations of the Limited name. Wexner had a super yacht called "Limitless" that Epstein used.

@anon

Personally, I find it incredulous that Wexner would have been unaware of missing $500 million.

Wexner knew it , he just didn't do anything about it which begs the question why? There is also the question of why Wexner gave Epstein a 'power of attorney' over his family charity fund. A man in his position would have a dozen attorneys who would have told him not to do that.

There were billions of dollars at risk on what Epstein could tell.

"Besides Lex Wexner of L Brands who now (15 years after the fact) says Epstein stole $45 million from him which he made no effort to get back there was Leon Black.

"Leon D. Black, head of Apollo Global Management one of the world's largest private equity firms
Black's links to Epstein have become a source of concern to some Apollo employees and investors, including the California Public Employees' Retirement System, which has committed more than $5 billion to 11 Apollo funds and is its second-largest shareholder.
"Calpers takes this issue very seriously," Wayne Davis, a spokesman for the Sacramento-based pension,"
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-07-31/jeffrey-epstein-had-a-door-into-apollo-his-deep-ties-with-black

Black and Apollo would have been ruined forever if Calpers had withdrawn their pension money because of links to Epstein sexcapades.
There are likely more WS and other financial figures linked to Epstein and there may have been crimes beyond underage girls such as actual sex trafficking and money laundering .his travel records included countries compatible with those activities.

Intentionally or not, you seem to be determinedly missing my point.

Maybe the money never was Epstein's. Maybe it was given to him to run the operations he ran. Epstein wasn't an independent operator so much as an employee.

Watch and see. If I'm right, everything will turn out to be in somebody else's name. There won't be an estate to sue.

I read that Epstein had been taken off suicide watch, that the video camera surveilling him had developed a technical malfunction, and that the guards assigned to him had been removed for 3 hours related to some maintenance chore. If this is so, there will be some explaining to do, and the internet will see to it that there is a lot of justified speculation. Even minor prisoners are under video-surveillance 24-7 in more modern facilities.

Since Epstein had hundreds or thousands of videos of prominent people having sex with minors, the state has a duty to the victims and the public to go through this material and prosecute the clients where possible. This will naturally open up the discussion of a possible blackmailing operation.

In a manner of speaking, God has done his part and the ball's in our court. If we don't do what we can to get this investigated properly we have ourselves to blame. This is a golden opportunity to expose the deep state. Don't be content to whine or listen to Hannity whine. Whiners are losers.

I've recently been doing quite a lot of reading about the Syndicate gangsters of the 1930s-1940s, and another interesting historical parallel comes to mind

In 1941, Abe "Kid Twist" Reles, a senior figure in Brooklyn's Murder Inc. agreed to testify against America's top Syndicate bosses, providing detailed evidence about the 1,000 or so nationwide killings that his organization had performed on their behalf.

Obviously, the federal prosecutors were concerned about his safety in any ordinary jail, and stashed him in a suite of top-floor hotel rooms, where he was guarded 24-hours per day by rotating groups of six specially-selected police officers, who would keep him under constant surveillance. The doors were steel-plated and the rooms selected to preclude any long-range sniper.

Oops! Poor "Kid Twist" somehow decided to jump out the 5th story window and kill himself when all six of the on-duty guards happened to simultaneously doze off.

The Captain in command of the unit argued that it was accident rather than suicide, and the poor fellow had deliberately climbed out the window, intending to rappel down to the floor below, then walk back up the stairs and knock on the front door, thereby surprising his erstwhile guards with a amusing practical joke.

Syndicate killers planning to implicate their bosses should definitely avoid playing such "practical jokes"

Goy , says: August 11, 2019 at 1:15 am GMT
@Ron Unz What is so striking about the Epstein murder/suicide is not that high level witnesses like him would be targeted and taken out to protect the powerful people implied in his testimony. But that even the most casually informed observer of the case equipped with basic common knowledge would know and anticipate in advance with certainty that he would be targeted.

The fact that Epstein could be killed in the prison which protected El Chapo and where, allegedly, not a single inmate had comitted suicide under watch, with the dire warnings of many voices and red flags in advance, and a "suicide attempt" just shortly before, which already implied assault in his cell, can only mean two things:

That the US justice system is as inept and dysfunctional as that of a banana republic – which is unlikely.

Or that the US political system from the presidents, over state attorneys down to the common prison guard is so thoroughly corrupted to the point of evil that it was possible to have Epstein assassinated.
Similar cases you have reported have been going on for almost a century now. And what was speculative has now become iron certainty: that blackmail, assassination, human trafficking, child abuse and pedophile-rings are an integral part of the true ruling elite of the USA. Likely that of Europe aswell. And of South America. And the destinction between the ruling elite and the mob it used and uses, is at best grey in nature. We are talking about people who can destroy entire nations, have hundreds of thousands of people massacred as a consequence and laugh about it, like Hillary Clinton did.

Yet the uncomfortable, undeniable certainty of this reality does still come somewhat as a shock to me.

What was so special about the Epstein case was that it happened under the watchful and anticipating eye of the public. The assasination, as described earlier, was a show of force and smug mocking of the audience by the ruling elite. It almost felt like a bait to violent retaliation. Like the true establishment had thrown down the gauntlet.

My pessimism leads me to believe that the Epstein assassination and implication with Mossad and Ehud Barak as well as Benjamin Netanyahu will be memory-holed and drown in the swamp of total apathy that rules post-historic, rootless, post-modern western man. But it is hard to believe the potentially most esxplosive case in post-WW2 US history could just end like a forgotten footnote.

@MLK I would import everyone half-intelligent to ignore Giraldi's distraction arm-waving about the Jews. Apply some common sense.

Whomever was powerful enough to resuscitate the "Epstein saga," surely could have quietly suicided him in the many years before he was back in federal custody. Ergo, that wasn't the plan.

According to the (sketchy) official story, Epstein recklessly flew back to Teterboro Airport right when his malefactions were again in the spotlight and the subject of litigation. Apparently all of his powerful protectors low these many years must have all been on summer vacation, including Mossad to hear Giraldi tell it.

What makes a whole lot more sense is that he was, in a word, renditioned. We even got the post-arrest photo of him looking much like Saddam (purportedly) pulled from his hiding hole by some garden-variety US soldiers.

@TKK Except she was not 15, but two years older, and was with him until 19, which is a difficult mistake to make honestly. And once your testimony is proven to be unreliable in one detail about judge must tell the jury all your evidence is tainted. She also had a druggie boyfriend at the time. And she was a lot tighter with her family and deceived them a lot more than anyone would understand from her account. She lied to her father and was taking money for sex as a 19 year old. Her character not her consent would be the issue. The jury would be led to understand that they were making her a millionaire by convicting Epstein. Epstein's acquittal would not have been unprecedented, Michael Jackson's acquittal was probabally due to just such a defence strategy. Both had a lot of money, and the criminal justice system is not designed to cope with super rich defendants.

@Grizaby Evidently you can't read. It said Clinton and the rest of his clients. Trump is owned by Israel but that doesn't mean he was part of Epstein's inner circle like the Clintons were. You have no clue to what you are talking about. If Trump was part of it he will be had. Look at the bull they tried to run by the American people with Mueller investigation.

Epstein was a major player in the espionage industry which consisted of Israel running the system with likes of British Intelligence along with the CIA. This stuff is as old as warfare itself. Epstein survived because all these agencies and the Magic Jews with their money protected him. The US court system protected him as well as the FBI and Mueller. The Mueller investigation was just another smoke and mirror diversion for Israel and the CIA to use ISIS as a proxy army to expand Israel's borders while for two years the Jew Controlled Media ran 24 hours a day the Russians influenced our election. Unfortunately, some of us know that Jews, Soros and Adelson own both the Democrats and the Republicans and control our elections.

There is nothing partisan here. If you knew anything about Israel you would know that they have been "importing" girls from the Balkins and other places for their sex industry for years which has been covered up. Whenever there is human trafficking, porn, sex slavery, organ harvesting, and espionage using such domains you will find Israel. For some reason Giraldi seems ignorant of such things.

@Sean

Both had a lot of money, and the criminal justice system is not designed to cope with super rich defendants.

with ties to Ehud Barak (of 9/11 fame).

US Attorney Acosta was told to "back off, that Epstein was above his pay grade." "I was told Epstein 'belonged to intelligence'.

Which begs the question.. who told him that?

We can always discover where the rot meets the road by the thunderous silence when it comes to asking certain questions.

Who provided the script to Fox News and the BBC for the story of building seven's collapse?

Nobody has any interest in knowing -- this is where the rot meets the road.

Who told Acosta to lay off of Epstein? -- this is where the rot meets the road.

It's always the crickets who inform us, more than a thousand "journalists" and "reporters" who know where the rot meets the road, and when to stop asking questions.

For instance, how did Epstein hang himself?

By what means was he able to do this? How was he found?

The only thing they're telling us is that " Epstein was found unresponsive in his cell.."

And that he had been taken off suicide watch.

And so the rest of us, by dint of the avalanche of unasked questions, are supposed to have trust in the authorities to get to the bottom of it. If we're told he hanged himself, it's not up to us, and certainly not the job of 'journalists or reporters' to worry about things like – how, exactly did he hang himself?

How was he found? I guess asking such questions would be 'beyond the Pale'.

He was found 'unresponsive in his cell. Oh, Ok. Wasn't he on suicide watch? No, he had been taken off suicide watch. Oh, what about cameras? 'The cameras malfunctioned during his 'suicide'.

Ok, we have no more questions. We're satisfied that the FBI is going to "investigate".

Reminds me of the Las Vegas shooting, and how they couldn't discover a motive. The length and breath of our vaunted FBI and all that NSA surveillance that knows when you're going to fart before even you do, but they can't discover a motive for Las Vegas.

Michael Hastings was simply driving too fast. Case closed.

Jorg Haider was simply driving too fast.

Seth Rich died in a 'robbery' (where his wallet and expensive watch were not taken).

Gary Webb committed suicide by shooting himself in the head – twice.

If you're a professional whornalist, you're satisfied with these conclusions.

Not a single one of the allegedly existent customers of Epstein were charged. In fact the accusation by the girls is he gave them to his friends and even random visitors to his mansion. The prosecutors charged Epstein with trafficking because that would get him life, NOT because he was actually guilty of that by being any kind of pimp. Don't take everything so literally.

You're just trying to obfuscate the issue which is

Procuring is against the law and Epstein was a procurer.

Like many, you probably have the fantasy of pampered happy escort girls making a lot of money and living happily ever after don't you?

A lot of the escort girls get only cash tips from the customers. Some of the agencies keep all the fees paid for with credit cards. Almost all the escort agencies cheat the girls when it's time to pay them. The credit card companies haven't paid the escort agency yet. The 60 40 split is suddenly 70 for the agency 30 for the girls.

Suddenly the agency closes phones canceled and the girls who are owed a months pay are out of luck as the pimps go off with all the money.

Some agencies don't really screen clients or provide body guards and the girls get beaten and robbed . Many of the drivers and appointment makers sell drugs to the escort girls.

Hard to figure exactly your point. It appears you're claiming Epstein treated his prostitutes better than the blacks do. True

But his blackmail financial fraud money laundering his financial services firm that did no trading buying selling and investing are far worse crimes than running an escort service.

@Alden

Even worse are the retard idiots who keep claiming that Epstein and his customers were pedophiles.
Sex with 13 to 17 year olds for money or lust is not pedophilia.
Sex with children 12 and under is pedophilia

Wrong. Pedophiles seek sex with underage children whether 'paid for' or 'not'.
'Underage' varies by state statutes. 15 is the usual age.
Being sexually attracted to a 13 year old prostitute as opposed to 18 year old prostitute is pedophilia.

Pedophilia is classified as a mental disease .and its not curable. It is treated in most cases with drugs that erase the sex drive. If a pedophile stops taking the drug he will resume preying on children.

So says my sister in law who is a psychiatrist on staff with a major hospital who has seen a few although she treats mainly children, among whom have been a few victims of pedophiles..
Pedophiles, like mentally deranged serial killers do know 'right from wrong' ,that is why they hide it .they should be treated criminally the same way other offenders are.

As I see it, they were girls, both above & below 18, who were seduced by lavish life-style & were not bound by any personal strict morality, family ties or anything similar. Are we to believe that 15 or 16 years old girls were so clueless about life they would not even think they live, eat, sleep in a grown man's mansions without even a hint of giving, eh, something "in exchange"?

Are we to believe that those 15, 16, 17..years old girls were not human females, with female sexual desires, ideas, projections & plans? That these girls did not have sexual feelings or were totally clueless about them, like, say, about quantum algebra? That there was not a suspicion on their side that something of a sexual nature was bound to happen, sooner or later?

@Corvinus Robert Maxwell's role as "Israel's Super-Spy" was comprehensively and convincingly documented by Gordon Thomas.

Maxwell's execution was carried out by Mossad because, as his business empire was crumbling, he made the mistake to blackmail them for £400 millions.

Epstein's obvious link to Mossad is the background of Ghislaine Maxwell, as well as her central involvement in organising and operating the blackmail paedophile ring.

Epstein's case was highly publicised in Europe, for many years, because of his association with the UK's Duke of York; there never were any mention of President Trump.

I disagree re President Trump being blackmailed by Epstein: if that would have been the case, the NeoCons wouldn't have needed to fabricate the ludicrous RussiaGate cock-and-bull story.

@YetAnotherAnon Just read in a review of a Maxwell bio that it is thought that Maxwell thought he was headed for a pickup of some cash he needed to cure his financial woes (that is the speculation of the bio's authors, Gordon Thomas and someone else). Instead some Israeli ninjas boarded his vessel, gave him a shot of something hehind the ear that took him out, and dumped him overboard. This story, if true -- even if not true -- lends a certain piquance to the grand guignol of the state funeral. Ghislaine may have known or suspected the truth. She hit the grits for NY -- that is, left Israel. If I understand the story correctly. In one sense this all sounds kind of weirdly sad, because that girl is obviously effed up bad from the get-go, and one can't help wondering on what terms Zion owns her.

He probably became more of a liability and/or stepped on some toes higher up in the food chain. How many former Israeli prime ministers will attend his funeral? Ghislaine's lawyers will be happy, she was a victim of Epstein too. Poor child.

Make no mistake, Ghislaine will never be extradited by TPTB, for they are still designating her a "Madame"; just a very naughty lady who was adept at pleasing her clients and her "partner". Not a spy, not a slave trader, just an independent and shrewd Mommy of sorts. " Lady Madame Ghislaine". A glamour girl to the end. And without a doubt she'll get the same state funeral as her father when her time comes. That is, if Israel is still a state when she kicks the bucket.

Jeffry Epstein suicided- makes it obvious, that the deep state mafia regime in control was feeling intense heat, some one(s) important in the deep state decided overt killing a prisoner in federal prison and trying to defuse the news and public' obvious disbelief in cause and method, is worth killing him and divert and defuse the mess. For sure the names that would have become public was going to destabilize the DC regime. In next few days before the news is buried, we will see how MSM will divert the narrative, away from the names it is trying to protect. For sure at one time he was "made" and one the "Goodfellas" .

The only way his 'suicide' can be considered an actual suicide is if his handlers had so much leverage over him that they could persuade that he (and any loved ones he might have) would all be much better off if he did it himself than if he forces them to do it for him.

That's a possibility I suppose. But the idea that he did just because he couldn't handle life anymore simply doesn't warrant any consideration at all.

I responded to Your last response to me on this thread:

The MoA Week In Review - OT 2019-45

It is the last entry on that thread. Just wanted to let You know.

-----

How convenient that Epstein is no longer in the perpetrator protection program. The witness protection program was obviously never considered, or applied. Someone wrote that the Epstein case proved that there are two justice systems in the US: one for the rich and one for the suckers. Although that is not quite correct, as the one for the suckers must be called Injustice System.

It also goes to show, that while people desperately attempt to change their 'elected officials', they have no whatsoever control over the 'unelected officials'. Those decide over the (In-)Justice system with impunity. How would the 'Supreme' Court look like if The People would elect its members? Citizen United would have never happened? But that it did - outside of any say of the population it affected the most - is one reason why the truth about Epstein's Johns will never surface. How many of the supreme court justices visited 'penetrate-a-minor-girl island?

He certainly had reason to. There would have been no hope for another deal after the publishing of the Giuffre files.

I guess someone helped him do it.

I suppose Ghislaine Maxwell will do a Lord Lucan .

For some reason there are names in the published files but there also are an anonymous "another prince," a "foreign president," a well-known prime minister"

Correct. No evidence has yet to emerge. Your beliefs notwithstanding.

If I were Epstein I would have a powerful motive to commit suicide. And some may have powerful motive to murder him. There is nothing yet to suggest her was murdered.

I cite this as an example of the disinformational slippery slope which in other contexts leads to the election of Trump, for instance, or the passage of Brexit.

IOW, suicide is not the only form of self-inflicted self-harm.

Daniel , Aug 10 2019 14:51 utc | 26
That probably means he was just a really rich pervert whose luck ran out rather than a Mossad or CIA asset tasked with collecting kompromat on influential people. A pampered twit like Epstein, used to a life of luxury and leisure, in jail on a sex charge would be eaten alive and quite possibly killed. I speculated after he was arrested that he would try to kill himself if he faced a long stretch in jail and it looks like that's what happened. Of course plenty of people will claim his suicide was faked etc. but unless they have credible evidence to back that up I will go with 'Occam's razor' on this.

Epstein's death - assuming he hasn't been "spirited" away to somewhere welcoming and unwilling to extradite, ever, (I wonder which "country" that might be) - and its timing is awfully convenient.

And the fact that he was supposedly on suicide watch after his "apparent" attempt some days earlier gives one pause. Either the so-called suicide watch is really negligent and Epstein was given/allowed both the "space" and the means (surely the means would, under suicide watch, be rendered null?) or his death by *suicide* is questionable.

Of course he was also the head of the CIA and the Warren commission, so he could afford to do what he did and get away with it.

What you are doing is playing with American shame; that the people could not bring truth and closure to these events.

Epstein 'suicide' looks like it will also prevent justice and closure.

How can America move forward progressively without resolving such issues?

You are right that such events should lead to uprusings; they didn't, another source of shame.

Do you really think that the people will rise up and follow AOC for Medicare4All when they can't insist on justice and truth for the above issues.

I wonder if they will do an autopsy, or maybe he will get "cremated" right away? If the former, I'd say maybe he actually did kill himself, if the latter, definitely not. Of course autopsies don't have to be accurate either. "Who gets the remains?" is another good question. "Why the heck did he show up to get arrested like that?" is another one.

I read that book last month! The official story still stands but the truth is out there. And it was not surprising to see that any evidence contrary to the official story of a paranoid, crazy man committing suicide didn't go anywhere.

I expect the Epstein story and its details to fade as well because many in power want it to. It's been interesting to read of the ties between Bill Browder, Robert Maxwell, and Jeffrey Epstein. Very shady dealings with so much submerged.

O @ 51-

does this require elaboration? I read your linked Daily News article. I have spent some time behind bars myself (although not for sex crimes I hasten to add) and while not in possession of as lavish lifestyle as Epstein I would probably have a difficult time tolerating much of the rest of my life spent in similar conditions.

And I get that Club Fed is a much better living environment than pre-trial holding cells but only by degrees...and he was going to be held in pre-trial for a long time while the press and alt media had a field day with his story.

The Clinton conection of course leads to all sorts of rightwing created conspiracy theorues which Barflies too love to swarm all over like a fresh batch of dogshit on the sidewalk.

Epstein by all recent accounts wasn't actually "smart", just pathologically driven and well-funded. Someone gave him a leg-up very early on; just an undeniable fact if you study his bio. He would not have any incriminating evidence stored at his properties or in his personal effects, it would've been funneled to whoever he was working for long ago. Point is, he trusted his bosses. His brain, Ghislaine's brain; those are the only two places outside of Tel Aviv that the info was still stored.

If he had prepared a dead man's switch, he would have pulled it years ago.

I find the Pavlovian reactions shown here by quite a number of people very painful to witness.

Like there can be any doubt Epstein would have more than enough reason to kill himself. A sexual marauder, a high-roller, the world's no. 1 pimp, probably an "Intelligence" asset in a class of its own, a guy who knew none of the boundaries us mortals usually face – confined to a tiny cell and prison life. With the prospect of having your sad and perverse life dissected in court, of having to explain and justify your actions, of having to go through harrowing witnesses' statements. Yeah, what's not to look forward to in there?

Yours is by far the most Pavlovian reaction to this news. Or is it 'news'?

Let me get this straight for your to think about it. The guy has enough money to spend after he gets out of jail. How any years would he get in a Justice system that was lenient in the first place? Different folks now in the Justice Department? Let's say he would get five years, no make it ten. I seriously doubt he wouldn't get parole after some time for exemplary behavior. And he promised to not continue his crimes. Remember that it suffices to confess to the public and apologize for what you did - for the evangelical faction to forgive you. Hell, make that 'Christian faction'. He would sign a confidentiality agreement in exchange for his life to those who would take it otherwise. Lots of money to use in a corrupted society.

Jeffrey Epstein would know that the average attention span of Americans is as long as the trail of a shooting star in the night. Another mass shooting and "Who? Epstein? Never heard of him."

It is you, who fits the findings of Pavlov quite well. However, from personal experience at the Humane Society, I know that there is no dog that cannot be re-trained, or re-conditioned to be a friendly doggie.

@41

My first thought. In fact, I had this thought as soon as I heard of the first Epstein suicide "attempt." I am sure I am not alone. Just when we thought we were going to see whose names actually were in her little black book, she conveninetly disappears, and the little black book slides down the memory hole.

Remember it was Reagan who said: Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.

Oh, yes, and Gary Webb supposedly also committed suicide. And a number of the JFK witnesses who planned to come forward some years/decades after his death---poof! Heart attack the day before the planned interrogation (see Douglass, JFK and the Unspeakable).

Anyone who believes this new (and richly predicted) suicide story is a fool. Gimme an effing break!
The guy was on "suicide watch"! That can only mean that the people in charge of this supposed watch were the ones who administered the tiny shot (leaves no trace in the skin) that brought about heart failure.

karlof1 , Aug 10 2019 16:11 utc | 78
How convenient, just after Florida opened its own investigation into the original plea arraignment that threatened to unseal Epstein's financial records. But just because Epstein's no more doesn't mean the investigation should end; others in the DoJ broke the law then, not Epstein. Plus, his operation was what's known as a "ring", a conspiracy, a racketeering operation involving numerous others, some known, some not. I wonder what his will says?
donkeytale , Aug 10 2019 16:19 utc | 81
nottheonly1

The flaw in your argument is that Epstein wasn't getting out this time and he knew it.

He may have been killed and he may have killed himself precisely because of what is to follow.

I believe like Karlof1 that the investigation should definitely continue because of what is to follow and also now should include whether or not Epstein was "suicided".

And if Clinton or Prince Andrew or wtf is found guilty of sex crimes then he should rot in jail too.

After all, Bill Cosby, white Amerikkka's favourite black father figure went to jail didn't he? Although granted he is black and he is also forgotten at this point in the ever rushing news cycle....but he is still behind bars, isn't he?

To those who think "suicide watch" is some magical way to prevent suicide, and that his death would imply some action by a third party to kill him, maybe i can shed some light on the procedure, as it is handled in Germany (And very likely at least inspired from US procedures):

1. The inmate does get a cell with a fellow inmate, so he is not alone, and is observed by that inmate too.
2. Additionally, to normal security measures, the inmate gets taken away all things with which he could harm himself
3. Wardens control the inmate visually in a pre determined interval of e.g. 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 60 minutes.
4. In special cases inmates are transferred into special cells with rubber walls and floors, like one would think in a mental hospital (Gummizelle is the German term).

Now, in consequence:
1. When the other inmate does not look, sleeps or simply does not give a shit, this has no effect
2. While belts, show laces and sharp things are removed, one can easily improvise a rope from a piece of bed linen etc. to hand themselves on the water fountain or classically on the window grille, jump from a double story bed head first breaking ones neck or bleeding themselves, slitting the wrist to bleed to death (something sharp can always be found or made, overdosing on drugs the inmate acquired from other inmates...

I myself have witnessed multiple people successfully kill themselves under suicide watch in the pretty short times i myself was an inmate in a maximum security prison. And i myself have been at times under suicide watch, and I know myself that if you want to do it, you got plenty of options.
After some days you know how the system works, and have multiples options if you choose so.
Plus, guards are always lazy, and cheat on the interval. E.g. checking only once an hour instead of every 15 minutes.
But even the 15 minutes is plenty of time.

So him being on suice watch and still killing himself IS NO PROOF OF NOTHING.
That said, i dont exclude something like this.

Maybe he had a conscience. Maybe he felt ashamed. Maybe not, and only had not the balls to face what he did.
Maybe some told him it would be better for him, or that there are actually people he loved and that he got threatened that those people would be hurt.
Who knows? Not we certainly.

IMHO it is TYPICALL for such people as him to commit suicide.
He may have some smarts concerning the rich and famous, but in a federal jail, he is FUCKED.
EVERYONE WILL TRY TO GET A PIECE OF HIS ASS AND MONEY!
JUST LIKE EVERY FUCKING PEDO IN EVERY JAIL ON EARTH!
And no solitary confinement (Already gone on suicide watch, where he is at least in a 2 man cell) can protect him.
Taking a shower, free time, sport, work, visiting waiting cell.. Countless times to get that mofo, and put a shank to his dick.

A pedo is already done in prison, but a prominent pedo???
He killed himself to not get assfucked till it bleeds, to not have to get abused like he abused.

He had no future, and he doing himself was realizing he played out.

Schmoe , Aug 10 2019 16:46 utc | 92
Epstein would have had this to weigh:
a) 1-2 years in his current settings; this did not sound like Club Fed.

b) Then a trail with 2 outcomes:

i) A decent chance of an acquittal. Consider Robert Durst and OJ. When was the last time a wealthy, good looking person was convicted?

I) A hung jury would have been a distinct possibility given societal taboo's against sexual abuse (not that that is a bad thing!).

ii) Conviction, with several years in Club Fed and I doubt if he would have been put into a situation where he was physically endangered.

I tend to weigh against suicide, but do understand donkeytale's comments.

A Shocked World Reacts To News Of Epstein's Impossible 'Suicide' :

One self-proclaimed corrections officer said on Reddit that Epstein's suicide should never have been possible.
I'm a corrections officer. This should never have been possible. During the intake process due to the nature of his crimes and being famous he should have already been on special watch. Then after the first attempt he would have been in a special cell. He would be in what we call a "pickle suit" it's a green suit that you can't tear or tie to anything. His blankets would be the same material. He would only get hygiene products under supervision. Only thing allowed in his cell would be a book and court papers. Then we would be monitored more closely. This is a huge failing on the jail. I want a massive investigation on how this was able to happen.
/div> The NYT this morning is reporting that it is not known if Epstein was on a suicide watch. Clearly, he should have been after the recent incident in which he was found unconscious and with injury marks around his neck. I think it is not at all unlikely that he did commit suicide, but also that he was allowed or even aided in doing so.

It's probably too early to draw the curtains on the Epstein nothing-burger. It's not at all clear to me that ANY of the under age women were pre-pubescent children. Bonking under age females with breasts and pubic hair is known as Statutory Rape in most Western countries; the assumption being that the bonkee is deemed to be too young to give Informed Consent to sex with an adult male. If there's no allegation or evidence of coercion by the bonker then it's not a hanging offense.

The mystery surrounding Epstein's rags to riches good fortune has not yet been fully explained, although if it's true that he had charisma then he was probably capable of seducing/ charming males as well as females.

IF he was running a honey-trap blackmail scam as a sole trader then he will fade from History surrounded by a blizzard of "???". If on the other hand he was a "useful idiot" running the scam on behalf, and for the benefit of, powerful people then one suspects that he will have left a "dead man's letter" so that he'd have the last laugh.

A dead man's letter is only as good as the entity one trusts to ensure that it's disseminated. WikiLeaks would be my top pick for a trustworthy publisher and The Swamp is moving Heaven and Earth to keep Assange incommunicado until he can be suicided.

Re: nottheonly1, donkeytale and KC

I think you are missing the fundamental issue regarding the circumstances of Epstein's death, it is no longer Epstein's crimes and that of his co-conspirators, it is a systemic loss of Trust in the government and political elites. The allegations against Epstein and his associates were extremely serious, at the absolute minimum they involved major political and economic figures involved in sex trafficking and the sexual abuse of minors, the worst allegations were that foreign individuals or governments had gained compromising information about these figures and used it subvert the government policies for their benefits. I do not know if all of these allegations were, but at least some of these allegations involving sexual abuse were truth (Epstein himself admitted as much when he took the original guilty plea).

In re-arresting Epstein under new charges, the government itself also asserted that 1) they believed Epstein committed other crimes and 2) they were reasonably likely to get a conviction at a trial (prosecutors are not supposed to bring charges against people unless they think they can get a conviction at trial). Again, I do not know if all of these allegations were true, but in bring a case the government said that they believed that they were. Lastly, in refusing to grant bail to Epstein, the government clearly and publicly took on the responsibility of protecting Epstein from ALL THREATS (including himself, other inmates, guards, health issues, everything) while he was in their custody.

The fact that Epstein, allegedly, tried to commit suicide a week ago and was then moved to the highest level of care and security by the government where he then dies after "allegedly" committing suicide is a huge, public and devastating failure of the government to fulfill their obligations to society, the courts and even Epstein (that is assuming Epstein really is dead). This is made all the worst by the fact that many, many people (Zerohedge, moon of alabama, RT, infowars, the Duran among others) had stated their fears that Epstein would be murdered in such a way by powerfully forces within the government and political elites, in the eyes of these people, their concerns have been fully vindicated. By failing to fulfill their obligations in such a public way, especially after being warned repeatedly by people concerned about just such a situation unfolding, the US government has hugely discredited itself and legitimized the believe that the US government and the political elite is deeply, systematically corrupt.

Now, undoubtedly the US government and society will not be fatally undermined by a single event such as this. But for the prior 30 years (at least), the US government and society seem unable to generate successes for anyone except the top 1% and indeed seems openly hostile to the very idea that government should ever create a benefit for anyone except the 1% or that the political and economic elite should ever be held accountable for any failure or crimes they commit (the 2001 tech bubble, the Iraq war, the 2008 financial crisis, Libya, Syria, Iran, Venezuela and now the Epstein scandal). At some point a critical threshold will be breeched and people will slowly stop believing in the various government narratives on events and public policies. Many American already reject the US government's narrative on 9/11, the Iraq war, Syria now some of them will add the Epstein episode to their list of disbelieved narratives. Unless the US government reverses course and starts rebuilding it's legitimacy and trust, this rejection of US government narratives will spread to the most fundamental government narrative, that the US government is the legitimate government of the people. Once that narrative is disbelieved by as little as 1/3 of the population, the US (as it currently exists) is doomed. When will that happen, that's the $64 question although I personally believe it will be within the next 20 years unless some reforming figure arises

Mina , Aug 10 2019 17:09 utc | 109
Since he was certainly a spook it makes sense that he knew he had to commit suicide by himself. Suicided, yes, but by his owners who dropped him. The guy still thought recently he could be released on bail.

Unless the US government reverses course and starts rebuilding it's legitimacy and trust, this rejection of US government narratives will spread to the most fundamental government narrative, that the US government is the legitimate government of the people. Once that narrative is disbelieved by as little as 1/3 of the population, the US (as it currently exists) is doomed. "

The lies haven't got so blatant that the narrative managers are asking to disregard any logic to believe their stories. This Epstein case I have personally been following since 2015. From all that I read of the guy, suicide doesn't seem like his way. Ratting everyone else out seemed more his style. Thus I lean more on a hit job more than anything.

I would say it is mainly a wallstreet story.

The mysteries of Jeffrey Epstein's financial black book

I didn't really know Jeffrey. He was like Boo Radley in the corner of the room. After I met him, he became Jeffrey Epstein, he had no interest in me. He knew right out of the box who the players were, the people who would stay out all night, people who had interests in extracurricular objectives, and who the hitters were. That wasn't me." ... The Wall Street names in the book range from the highly prominent to the obscure, and, for some unknown reason, a disproportionate number of names of bankers in it worked once upon a time at Lazard, my old firm.

Financial Times Book review

Cohan dutifully records passing events in the outside world, such as the near-bankruptcy of New York, which Mr Rohatyn averted, and various mergers and acquisitions. But the interesting action was taking place in Lazard's allegedly dingy (they never seemed that bad to me) offices in the Rockefeller Center, where the "great men" who advised big companies plied their trade.

The emphasis was on the "men". Cohan records that partners from Meyer to Mr David-Weill and Mr Rohatyn imported a French attitude to extramarital liaisons and the first women who worked there as bankers were apparently propositioned constantly. One young woman is even said to have been raped by two junior bankers, and according to Cohan's ac­count the bankers were eased out to avoid embarrassment.

This can't be stressed enough.

The Great US of A are absolutely FUCKEDUP. Remember what's at stake are proven and alleged public order crimes, that it was not a victim that perished, that sex trafficking, of minors or otherwise, are criminal organization type crimes. These crimes shall be prosecuted under the law. Except there is no law to be under anymore.

We can all speculate on suicide vs "suicided" but in my opinion this is several degrees below the bar, at this point I don't even think it matters that part of the discussion. I'm slightly disappointed at today's comments, but since I can't myself bring up to par, I extend it myself.

Caitlin Johnstone weighs in: "Jeffrey Epstein Dies Of "Suicide""
Don Wiscacho , Aug 10 2019 17:17 utc | 118
There isn't any hard evidence that Epstein was murdered, true. But if the death of the sole named accused in arguably the most high profile case in decades, involving the most well-connected elites, steeped foreign intelligence connections, in a federal prison, on suicide watch, alone in a cell wearing a paper suit, with no shoelaces, under 24/7 watch doesn't arose your suspicions, you are a special kind of obtuse. Suicide watch is designed specifically to not allow what supposedly happened. At a minimum, it is a scandal in its own right. But to happen to Epstein now, just as the trail was getting rolling, on Friday - the day known to 'bury' stories, in a federal facility in Manhattan, is as fishy as fishy gets. If you want to mock those who point that out, it reflects much more on your naivety than anyone else's.

Hoarsewhisperer @104

Your comment is offensive and misleading.

He wasn't just "bonking" underage women, he was trafficking them - internationally and on a large scale. And he threatened them as well. These women were fearful.

If your daughter had been one of those "bonked", trafficked, and threatened at 15 or 16 years old maybe you wouldn't be so cavalier.

Furthermore, it's difficult to believe a wealthy person like Epstein would risk their wealth and prestige so blatantly without some belief that they were protected. Many believe that his protection came from Mega/Mossad. So the serial rapist was likely part of a criminal conspiracy that was aided and abetted by a foreign government.

I used to think you had a functioning moral compass.

Re O #112,

My BS detector has been bleeping almost non-stop since the US war on Serbia, as far as I'm concern when the US makes an assertion they need to provide verifiable evidence to back up their claims. my personal opinion is that Epstein didn't commit suicide, heck, I'm not even sure if he's really dead but if he is dead, he was probably murdered.

"In professional wrestling, a heel (also known as a rudo in lucha libre) is a wrestler who portrays a villain or a "bad guy" and acts as an antagonist[1][2][3] to the faces, who are the heroic protagonist or "good guy" characters. Not everything a heel wrestler does must be villainous: heels need only to be booed or jeered by the audience to be effective characters.

To gain heat (with boos and jeers from the audience), heels are often portrayed as behaving in an immoral manner by breaking rules or otherwise taking advantage of their opponents outside the bounds of the standards of the match. Others do not (or rarely) break rules, but instead exhibit unlikeable, appalling and deliberately offensive and demoralizing personality traits such as arrogance, cowardice or contempt for the audience. Many heels do both, cheating as well as behaving nastily."

leveymg on Sun, 07/14/2019 - 1:29pm

Despite her 30 year career in political kompromat operations, the FBI and major media have ignored Ghislaine Maxwell. Here's where she got her start, as detailed in 1986 on Page One of one of her father's tabloids. Complete with canes and school boys:

For decades, the US and UK governments knew about Epstein and Maxwell's sexual kompromat operations. Maxwell and her famous father, it turns out, have made them a family business. But, the FBI and Scotland Yard did nothing to stop them. Why? For details - SEE FULL UPDATED REPORT: https://caucus99percent.com/content/epstein-turned-informant-muellers-fb...

As was previously reported:

In 1996,

the FBI failed to act on an accusation that they had together sexually abused a 15 year old girl and her older sister in a bedroom inside Epstein's Manhattan townhouse. Documents in a recent law suit filed by an alleged victim, Maria Farmer, show that the FBI had been aware of Epstein and Maxwell's child abuse activities in New York for at least a dozen years before Epstein was finally prosecuted in 2008 under much-reduced Florida state offenses. https://www.yourtango.com/2019323698/who-maria-farmer-latest-woman-accus...

For her own part, Maxwell, who has been largely overlooked, was granted immunity from prosecution as part of Epstein's prosecution deal. It turns out that Ghaislaine Maxwell has a spectacular past in the UK that has gone altogether ignored by the U.S authorities and systematically obfuscated by the U.S. media, which has repeatedly spiked stories about the pair.

Here is some additional background and new details.


For years the rape of the Farmer sisters and the larger child sex scandal was publicly ignored by the authorities and the media. A story intended to expose it in Vanity Fair was spiked by the editor. According to reporter Vicky Ward: https://www.thedailybeast.com/jeffrey-epsteins-sick-story-played-out-for...

I spent many months on his trail in 2002 for Vanity Fair and discovered not only that he was not who he claimed to be professionally, but also that he had allegedly assaulted two young sisters, one of whom had been underage at the time. Very bravely, they were prepared to go on the record. They were afraid he'd use all his influence to discredit them -- and their fear turned out to be legitimate.

As the article was being readied for publication, Epstein made a visit to the office of Vanity Fair's then-editor, Graydon Carter, and suddenly the women and their allegations were removed from the article. "He's sensitive about the young women," Carter told me at the time.

Not until after the rearrest of Epstein in July 2019 have details about Maxwell and the Farmer sisters started to reemerge. In reality, Ghislaine Maxwell has a history of entanglement with political sex scandals that goes back to when she was 23.

An extraordinary 1986 front-page British tabloid story in a British tabloid revealed that Ghislaine had a relationship with a Conservative Member of Parliament reportedly involving compromising photos taken of him with naked boys whom the MP had beaten with a cane. English public school kinky. Extraordinarily, The People tabloid was controlled by the Mirror press syndicate, owned by Ghislaine's father, Robert Maxwell, whose picture appears on the masthead above his daughter's Page One photo.

Robert Maxwell was himself a Member of Parliament for the opposing Labour Party . . .

Talk about spinning a story and flipping the narrative . . . extraordinary. Very Old School.

SD, I think you've misread that article ...

There's no implication of any connection between GM and the kinky Tory MP.

It's still a pretty damned strange story though ... the claim is that some unknown person threatened to "expose" an inappropriate liaison between GM and a young Marquis, Lord Granby (son of a Duke, I guess), unless Maxwell's paper laid off a series of stories about the Tory MP's sex life.

The strange part of the business is that ... I'm not sure what would be inappropriate about any particular relationship between GM and Lord Granby. Was he married? If not, then ... what? I mean, yeah, it was 1986, but that's not the same as 1956, and they were both in their early 20s. Really weird. And presumably there never was any follow-through on the threat so ... huh!?!?

leveymg on Sun, 07/14/2019 - 9:40pm
The story was a way of making the accusations public

@UntimelyRippd @UntimelyRippd under the guise of defense of Ghislaine Maxwell's character. I don't buy that a telephone call was received at the editorial office of The People from a mysterious blackmailer, at all. Smells like a smear job against an opposition politician that Maxwell's daughter, GM had gotten to know, intimately, as insinuated.

The tabloid's "investigation" was an exceptionally nasty smear job, but that's not terribly unusual for British tabloids and politics. We're just beginning to catch up over here.

The references to a man claiming to be a homosexual partner giving the tabloid compromising photos of "naked boys" four months earlier, and to the Conservative MP caning them, is at least intriguing and potentially significant (particularly in light of Ghisaile's later activities), but, as far as I know were never substantiated. Would not be surprised, nonetheless, if the Marquis was not returned to Parliament.

The ongoing scandal this fed into was enough, apparently, to disaffect the poor MP's constituents and backers. Read the last paragraph. "IN THE NAME OF GOD, GO!"

Even if she was 23 at the time, for Robert Maxwell to use his daughter in this way was a form of abuse. He was capable of worse, and did worse.

UntimelyRippd on Sun, 07/14/2019 - 5:34pm
I don't think the Marquis was in Parliament to begin with.

@leveymg

The Marquis in question is young Lord Ganby, who is not Harvey Proctor, the Tory MP accused of caning boys.

I agree with you on one point: I don't think anybody called The People and threatened them with exposing "compromising" photos of GM and Lord Ganby. I think the editor of The People made the whole damned thing up, probably on RM's instructions, in order to increase the hype around their ongoing expose of the Harvey Proctor sex scandal (with caning etc.). Which is probably why the scandalous relationship supposedly being used as a threat isn't actually very scandalous at all -- they wouldn't want to create a really scandalous fictitious relationship, because juicy rumours are hard to put down once you've created them.

In other words, nothing in any of this connects Ghislaine Maxwell to the alleged caning of boys by Harvey Proctor.

leveymg on Sun, 07/14/2019 - 9:34pm
Thanks for looking that up. Bigger picture

@UntimelyRippd and bottom line: Ghislaine Maxwell has a 30 year history of involvement in political sex scandals and compromise operations that the corporate media has missed.

There's a reason for that.

gulfgal98 on Sun, 07/14/2019 - 5:01pm
This is a huge rabbit hole

down which one could easily get lost. Ghislaine Maxwell's father ( Robert Maxwell ) was a publisher who had strong ties to Israel and was buried there after his mysterious drowning death. There have been rumors that Maxwell worked for the Mossad.

Maxwell, 57, comes from money. Her father was publisher Robert Maxwell - who himself faced accusations of being a Mossad double (and possibly triple) agent and a "bad character" who was "almost certainly financed by Russia," according to the British Foreign Office. Robert Maxwell died in 1991 when he fell from his yacht, the Lady Ghislaine - however the circumstances surrounding his demise have been rife with speculation (including that it was a Mossad assassination - a theory which attorney and longtime Epstein associate Alan Dershowitz slammed in a 2003 op-ed).

Ghislaine Maxwell is a good friend of the Clintons too and was pictured having attended Chelsea Clinton's wedding . Thus far, Ghislaine Maxwell has been protected and if she continues to be protected, then we will know that she is definitely a government asset, (CIA or Mossad?).

No one really knows what is the real story of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, but this is more than just what it appears to be. There are many questions about how Jeffrey Epstein acquired his vast fortune and how he was able to become friendly with many high level politicians and influential people, including the British royal family.

One more item: the most amusing thing about Epstein is that not a single source/person can say how he made his money. That's a topic for a next essay, but there's this: 20 years after -ostensibly-, leaving Bear Stearns Epstein turns up as a director for one of their SIV's.The vehicle was called Liquid Funding Ltd, and Epstein is listed as a director and chairman. The entire vehicle went stone dead, as did Bear. But Jeffrey did not.

Leveymg, thank you for having the nerve to broach this subject because Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell and their sex peddling business may have far greater ramifications than any of us can imagine, if the truth is ever allowed to come out. I wrote most of my comment before reading your linked essay thoroughly and I apologize for duplicating some of the content. Blackmail is a great form of control.

We should keep a watchful eye on this story because this may be the tip of a very large and dirty iceberg that has infected our government for a long time. Finally, Zero Hedge has an interesting editorial article up today by "Tyler Durden" that asks a very puzzling question. Why did Epstein fly back to the United States when he knew that the courts were unsealing 2,000 pages of his previous case?

Alligator Ed on Sun, 07/14/2019 - 6:22pm
Zounds! What a spirited ZeroHedge article

@gulfgal98 Why, indeed did Epstein fly back into the U.S.? He should have suspected that Barr would arrest him on orders from the Chief. Or, is JE being presented as a sacrificial lamb, being led before the rest of the herd, to succumb as a bloody example of who calls the shots (pardon the horrible mixed metaphors, but, hey. These do occur).

I am reminded of an old FarSide cartoon in which two bears are walking on their hind legs and one of the bears has a red and white target painted on his back. That bear-with-target would be JE, if I'm not mistaken. Wexner and associates will not take lightly to the pressure of the klieg lights being constantly upon them.

After Epstein was released from his 13 month inconvenient

He went right back to being accepted in the high society. Not long after he got out he had dinner with Katie Couric and George Stephanopoulos and started right back up where he left off. You'd think that his friends would want to put some distance between them and his perversions.

But when people talked about his registering as a sex offender he said this:

"I'm not a sexual predator, I'm an 'offender,' Epstein told The New York Post in 2011. "It's the difference between a murderer and a person who steals a bagel."

Uh no.. Jeff you are a sexual predator and you should be still sitting in a regular prison cell for a few more years or decades if the original case had gone to the original conclusion.

Fresh out of jail, Jeffrey Epstein was welcomed by the rich, powerful

In 2010, the year after he got out of a Florida prison, Katie Couric and George Stephanopoulos dined at his Manhattan mansion with a British royal. The next year, Epstein was photographed at a "billionaire's dinner" attended by tech titans like Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk. A page popped up on Harvard University's website lauding his accomplishments, and superlative-filled news releases described his lofty ambitions as he dedicated $10 million to charitable causes.

Powerful female friends served as social guarantors: Peggy Siegal, a gatekeeper for A-list events, included him in movie screenings, and Dr. Eva Andersson-Dubin, a champion of women's health, maintained a friendship that some felt gave him credibility. Epstein put up a website showing Stephen Hawking and other luminaries at a science gathering he had organized.

"If you looked up Jeffrey Epstein online in 2012, you would see what we all saw," Leon Botstein, president of Bard College, said in an interview. He seemed "like an ex-con who had done well on Wall Street," who was close to the Clintons and gave money to academic pursuits, Botstein said. That was why, he noted, Bard accepted an unsolicited $50,000 in 2011 for its high schools, followed later that year and in 2012 by another $75,000 in donations.

Siegal threw the dinner party at Epstein's Upper East Side mansion for Prince Andrew, giving Couric, Stephanopoulos, Chelsea Handler and others a chance to speak to a member of the royal family a few months before the much-anticipated wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

"It was just one of those strange nights," Handler said in an interview. Siegal had not emphasized who was hosting, several guests recalled. "The invitation was positioned as, 'Do you want to have dinner with Prince Andrew?'" Siegal said. Epstein did not speak much. Andersson-Dubin was there, but others said they barely knew who Epstein was or what he had been convicted of.

People close to Epstein had to know what his true history was and yet they all welcomed him back in their fold.

Credit must be given to the Miami Herald which unearthed many of the sordid details pertaining to Jeffrey Epstein's deal struck between his defense lawyers–who dictated the terms of the deal–and Alexander Acosta, now Trump's Labor Secretary.

Here is some background from the series dating back to last year.

Now, there is public pressure building up to either force Alexander Acosta to resign his Secretary of Labor Post or force Trump to fire him. It will be interesting what becomes of that

Miami Herald also released some other tid bits on the unsealed incitement:

[ ]
Three days before Epstein's arrest, a federal appeals court in New York ordered the unsealing of up to 2,000 pages of documents that are expected to show evidence relating to whether Epstein and his partner, Ghislaine Maxwell, were recruiting underage girls and young women as part of an international sex trafficking operation. Maxwell, 57, has never been charged ..

As part of its investigation, the Miami Herald was able to identify nearly 80 girls who allegedly were molested by Epstein. Four of the victims, now in their late 20s and early 30s, spoke on video about how they were traumatized first by Epstein, then by his lawyers and private investigators, who delved deeply into their backgrounds and social media accounts, and finally by the prosecutors themselves, who disposed of the case without telling them.

https://www.miamiherald.com/news/state/florida/article232398247.html

Also a possibly related story of a former Israeli soldier Assi Ben-Mosh who headed a child prostitution ring in Columbia was arrested in Portugal after initially being deported back to Israel where he continued to run the child prostitution ring:

Ben-Mosh is wanted by Colombian authorities for running a child prostitution ring in the small fishing village of Taganga, located on the South American country's Caribbean coast. He, along with a group of ex-Israeli soldiers, reportedly turned the luxury Benjamin Hostel into a "sex and drug den" in which more than 250 underage girls were subjected to sexual exploitation.

The Benjamin Hostel became known to locals as "little Israel", and acted as a base from which Ben-Mosh ran similar clubs exploiting children in Cartagena, Medellín and the Colombian capital Bogotá. His empire is also thought to have extended to Ecuador, Mexico and Brazil .

This Epstein story is huge. I think Amazing Polly is just touching on the surface:

Epstein dropped out of Cooper Union and NYU at age 20, but mysteriously got a job teaching calculus and physics at the prestigious Dalton school in NYC. He was hired by then headmaster Donald Barr (born Jewish converted to Catholicism), father of current AG William Barr. A year later Donald Barr was forced out by a group of Dalton parents for not being "progressive" enough and replaced by a guy named Dunnan, who was later accused of having an affair with a teacher and also sexually molesting a 14 year old.

While at Dalton, Epstein taught the son of Bear Sterns CEO Ace Greenberg, and ended up working at Bear Sterns. Five years later in 1981 he was fired from Bear Sterns for helping Edgar Bronfman in an insider trading scandal, which Bronfman blamed on his (phantom) Italian partner.

Bronfman' and his two daughters have been embroiled in the NXIVM sex scandal case. Meanwhile, Epstein somehow got his start thanks to one major "investor", billionaire Les Wexner, founder of the Limited, Abercombie & Fitch, Victoria's Secret etc. Bronfman and Wexner co-founded mega, a Jewish organization that promotes Israel.

Epstein-Bronfman smells like a giant international Jew crime network that involves blackmailing of wealthy people, celebrities and politicians for having sex with underage girls. It's how Epstein gained his wealth. He had no money to start out. His "hedge fund" is nothing but a fake front for billionaires to wire their ransom money, which is why it is established offshore and so secretive. There has been two huge fires at his private island in BVI btwn 2018 and Jan. 2019. Speculation is that lots of incriminating video footage was burnt, but of course Epstein kept copies, and Mossad most likely has them as well. Got to keep the blackmailing of our political and economic elites going. Israhell has a right to exist.

Anne Coulter sets the record straight on scumbag Epstein and those who shielded him from due process years ago. BTW, Epstein claimed the charges were 'anti-semitic', of course.

The Jerusalem Post has reported that Netanyahu has started campaigning against Ehud Barak on Barak's ties to Jeffrey Epstein . Christopher Bollyn claims that Barak is the "architect of 9/11 " . Will those responsible for the false flag attacks on 9/11 ever be brought to justice ?

The British Royal family still wields considerable power in the UK and has extensive land holdings throughout the World , to be seated in Parliament a M.P. has to swear an oath of allegiance to the monarch , the last M.P. who refused to do so was not permitted to take their seat ! Like the US , the UK is not a democracy ,whereas the US is a plutocracy / kakistocracy / pathocracy it appears that the UK is closer to being a monarchy .

With Prince Charle's close ties to the pedophile Jimmy Savile and Prince Andrew's ties to Jeffrey Epstein the death of the "beloved" Queen Elizabeth could present real problems to the future of the British monarchy.

Trump's Longtime Friend Jeffrey Epstein Arrested For Sex Trafficking Minors in Florida, New York

@getaclue

While many are focusing on Clinton or Trump the _big_ story on Epstein is that he had blackmail material on a wide range of politicians and business people from around the world. We do not yet know their names.

He could have sold that information to the highest bidders (intelligence agencies, corporations, organized crime)–but if he were sharp he would have sold the same information to multiple bidders.

I am amazed he served any time in jail, and will be even more amazed if he serves any more time.

He has the ultimate "get out of jail" free cards if he was smart enough to handle them wisely.

@Colin Wright the girls are not the kind of thing he would have revealed by offering to others, and it's a minority interest.

The masseuse/ assistant former employee making all the allegations now says she was 15 at the time instead of 17 and is accusing Prince Andrew and anyone else.

It's probably an attempt to get money by selling her story, but the prosecution are not biting. If everything is true he is being accused of in the current case is very basically Epstein paying underage girls for sex.

The sex trafficking network charge is basically a way to get him serious time for little more than he has already admitted to.

@anon

ays off big time because people will help others with a good reputation but not those with a bad reputation. But as with the satirical song be careful not to do good deeds when others are not watching. Hence his philanthropy,

I really do not think Epstein would have let anyone get the slightest hint his disgusting behaviour, he liked to portray himself as a Great Gatsby combined with Hugh Hefner figure.

His wealth comes from his ideas about creative tax evasion, and billionaires are not going to trust someone with their money that cannot control themselves with little girls. .

All the circumstantial evidence supports the allegations that Epstein was operating a "honeypot" to entrap celebrities and politicians such as Bill Clinton , the larger question is was he running this operation for the Mossad , CIA and MI6 or other deep state intelligence agencies .

'All the circumstantial evidence supports the allegations that Epstein was operating a "honeypot" to entrap celebrities and politicians such as Bill Clinton , the larger question is was he running this operation for the Mossad , CIA and MI6 or other deep state intelligence agencies .'

If so, it's interesting that he's been arrested -- and that it's getting play.

Any bets on whether he shortly 'commits suicide'?

I can't see him spilling all. It's not just Trump he may have stuff on. Clinton was obviously a big fan.

@Wally omething else entirely to do something about it.

and it's still a third thing to not merely engage in sex with her but to chew her up and discard her when you've had your week or whatever of fun.

Finally, to literally reduce her to a commodity to be sold or traded in exchange for favors if not simply large cash payments is yet a fourth thing.

We all get off this bus at some point. There aren't very many of us who would ride with ol' Jeffery all the way to stop four. Sean's rather strange attempt to defend him notwithstanding, Jeffery's a pretty disgusting character. In fact, he's a very disgusting character.

I hate being politically correct and all, but sometimes vile really is vile.

Could Murdoch survive one day without kowtowing to Jewish ? No , he can't . As long as Murdoch could provide what's the Jewish need – Iraq war , Syria war and Iran war or sanctions and promote the paid Israeli agents in Congress , he doesn't need to be a born Jews.

Actually the logic – he is not Jew – works for the Jew , helps the Jew to counter any attempt to locate the perfidious influences the Jews play .

"nd billionaires are not going to trust someone with their money that cannot control themselves with little girls.."

But they do. . Parents forced their 26 yrs old to go on trip with Wooddy Allen

Thanks for that video, it was well worth the 30 mins. I had never heard of Amazing Polly before but can see why she is so described. I agree with her that this is a web of crime and deceit that should be picked over very, very carefully and thoroughly.
