Socialism and Capitalism Are Compatible Because They Are Economic Systems, Not Political Systems

     Socialism - just like capitalism - is an economic system, not a political system.
     Sure, there's a popular perception out there, that socialism and capitalism each imply a certain political system to go along with them. Most people believe that socialism requires a centrally planned economy, while capitalism requires a "minimal government" to regulate fraud in the market and protect people's property. But that is not necessarily so.
     In this essay, I will explain why socialism does not require centralism, nor strict controls, and why it can be achieved without political action; and I will also explain why the fact that socialism and capitalism are economic systems - rather than political systems - means that they are incompatible. I will also explain under what conditions they are compatible, and the ramifications of synthesizing them both with and without the guidance of the state.

     Nearly every economic system which has been proposed - socialism, capitalism, and others - have both anarchist and statist variations. For example, some socialist and communist turn out totalitarian and quasi-fascistic (usually because they adopt central economic planning, and then resort to political repression, privacy invasion, and social controls to enforce the laws which that economic planning requires).
     But when governments operate in the favor of capitalists - that is, the owners of land, loans, capital, and enterprises - capitalism resorts to political repression, privacy invasion, and social controls, every bit as often as corrupt socialist governments do. Oligarchy is the statist variant of capitalism, while anarcho-capitalism, Agorism, and market-anarchism are some of the anarchist variants of capitalism.
     While some socialist regimes do end up "totalitarian communist", socialism has anarchist variants just like capitalists do. These include anarcho-syndicalism - including its "autonomist" tendency - as well as anarcho-communism, libertarian Marxism, libertarian socialism, and others. Those schools of socialist thought value maximizing local autonomy and worker autonomy; and promoting mass individual and collective ownership of the tools and machines which masses of propertyless people depend on in order to survive.

     Libertarian socialists, anarcho-communists, therefore, support not central planning (which free-marketers despise), but decentralized, polycentric planning. This should be enough to satisfy free-marketers' economic and financial concerns about socialism, because polycentric economic planning of society is much less economically risky than centralized economic planning is. Decentralized planning of the economy helps the people organize production (including its ecological impacts) in a manner which is suitable for the area and environment which they live in, know well, and depend on directly for survival.
     Decentralized planning would require much less political repression in order to enforce, because it would adopt the original principle behind the federalist form of government, which valued deferring as many matters as possible to the most local level of government competent enough to handle them. This principle expresses itself in the form of several political ideas; namely localism, subsidiarism, dual federalism and triple federalism, "polyarchy", and others.
    Lenin explained that his goal was to have social planning of economic production; any "government" which would exist after the abolition of the current state should be created by and subject to the will of the regional governments, just like the original idea behind the American system. Additionally, such a government would not primarily be for social control, but for the planning of economic production by the whole of society in communication with one another. Lenin wanted for the Soviet Union the same sort of delineation between central and regional duties which the Americans originally had; he just had different ideas about which issues which level of government ought to regulate.

     Communism is the political system which most socialists - especially Marxists - believe that socialism implies. Many capitalists are aware of this fact too. But what most capitalists, and some socialists, don't know, is that socialism doesn't always lead to communism, socialism does not always lead to a totalitarian regime, and communism is not totalitarian.
   Socialism doesn't always lead to communism; sometimes it leads to fascism. I would warn capitalist critics of socialism that they cannot claim "socialism always leads to communism" without accidentally admitting that socialism doesn't lead to fascism. And the idea that socialism leads to fascism tends to be an important part of the capitalist critique of socialism.
     Moreover, communism is not totalitarian, because Marx originally envisioned the end goal of socialism and communism to be "pure communism" or "free communism". Thus, communism is not only compatible with freedom; it has freedom - and the full abolition of the state - as its main goals. Pure communism, or free communism, aims for the eventual full abolition of the state, and along with it, the borders which the states establishes and protects, and the money which the state creates and issues. Additionally, the abolition of the class repression and social hierarchy,  which are created by the citizen/"illegal" distinction and the rich/poor distinction which those border and monetary systems create.
     The goal of free communism is to create a stateless, borderless, moneyless society, which would have no need for the state, nor its borders, nor its currency, nor anything else it creates and establishes.
     That is not very far-off from the goals of radical libertarians, market-anarchists, and "anarcho-capitalists", who support abolishing the state and its monopoly on the issuance of currency. That's why anarcho-communism and anarcho-capitalism are compatible. But only if the state and its economic interventions are fully abolished, and permanently; and "ancoms" and "ancaps" can compete for resources and legitimacy in a truly free, stateless, "free market" for alternative proposals to reorganize the economy.
     Communist and capitalist compromise is not without barriers and stumbling blocks, though; free communism would feature no government protection of private property whatsoever, and the only way a capitalist can get on board with that idea is if he is an anarcho-capitalist. This is to say that he must oppose not only state action to help protect property, but also the use of violence by anyone in order to protect property. In a free society, we would change each other's behavior through peaceful conversation and instruction, not through violent repression.

     Socialists and communists of all kinds, just as well as most supporters of free enterprise, oppose fascism and Nazism. That matters because fascism is intrinsically much more likely than socialism and capitalism to require statist intervention, violent enforcement, and central economic planning, in order to exist. It's not that "anarcho-fascist" systems haven't been proposed, however; "National-Anarchism" advocates non-violent "voluntary segregation" in order to avoid the need for statism, imperialism, and centralism, which they staunchly oppose.
     But the vast majority of people with racial supremacist and fascist ideologies, do support the state, do appeal to the state for legitimacy, and do resort to enlisting the help of violent government enforcement arms to protect their often dubious property claims. On the other hand, that is not to say that they won't resort to violence, or even violent revolution, in order to get what they want; the Spanish fascists' overthrowing of the legitimately elected social-anarchist government in the 1930s proves that.
     Fascism requires a strict hierarchy and high centralization of power in order to enforce its economic policy. The fascist economic policy is "dirigism", which etymologically refers to the government's direction of the economy. Under Nazism, for example, just like social and political issues, economic issues were subverted to the Fuhrerprinzip; the idea that the whole society should be organized so as to prioritize the needs of the Fuhrer (that is, the leader or "father" of the country). The need for military hierarchy under Hitler was used to justify the government's economic needs, and social repression was used to make it easier to enforce them.
     At the turn of the twentieth century, socialists such as Charles Maurras and Georges Sorel - as well as "war socialists" in the Russian Duma who supported World War I but rejected wholly dissolving the monarchy's power - began to articulate visions of socialism which required such strict enforcement of "labor discipline" (essentially, strict controls on workers and their production) that it bordered on fascism. This was typically justified by the supposed need for more strictly enforced and organized production during a wartime economy, in which resources must be prioritized so as to support the military's capability of defending itself. Not the "Fuhrer", mind you, but the country's defense capabilities. That tends to be what causes honest, reform-minded, progressive socialism to veer off-course and turn fascistic.
     The point being - to reiterate - socialism doesn't always lead to communism, because socialism sometimes leads to fascism. It doesn't always, but socialism - and fascist regimes parading as socialists - can turn fascist. Hitler was a fascist parading as a socialist. Mussolini was socialist as a youth, but became a fascist later in life. With the Molotov-Ribbentrop treaty, Stalin made himself look like a fascist by tricking Hitler into thinking he was going to give him everything he wanted. Franklin D. Roosevelt worked with Stalin, and imprisoned over a hundred thousand Japanese-American citizens who did nothing wrong, and at the end of his presidency wrote a letter decrying the selling out of the American people to foreign banking and business interests (which he helped facilitate).
     Socialism and fascism do go together sometimes. But that means that socialism doesn't always lead to communism. Because socialism can lead to fascism too.

     To be perfectly honest, in my opinion, it's entirely possible that the American presidential office could come to be occupied by a socialist or socialist-influenced candidate, and it could go off-course and end up fascist.
     I think that because I know that Bernie Sanders has voted for numerous military involvements in Africa and the Middle East - in at least nine countries - over his last 25 years in office. I am reluctant to support him for president - as "less bad" than Trump as that would be - because of those votes, and because I'm worried that he would dismantle American imperialism much more slowly than it needs to be dismantled.
     Based on what I've observed, instead of justifying the need for socialism on the need for military spending (as the "war socialists" did), "democratic socialists" like Sanders tend to excuse "a little" violent imperialist conquest, in order to placate the military-industrial complex lobbyists. I suspect that some self-described progressives and democratic socialists view this as necessary because they know that those lobbyists influence politicians so much, that the people can't strike a deal for a decent social safety net, unless the military and countless businesses are subsidized and supported (and rescued from bankruptcy time and time again) by taxpayers; such that there's a "balance" between warfare and welfare.
     The idea that these people are "democratic socialists" should bring shame to real socialists who value peace, and it does. Real socialists, who value freedom, support peace in all cases; they only support war against fascists and ultra-nationalists. Real "free communists" would never justify social control - nor political repression, nor the use of violence (except in self-defense) - in order to achieve either socialist economic goals or sufficient support of the need for collective defense. Thus, a self-described "communist" who supports any form of military spending, aggression, money, borders, or class distinctions, is an "impure" communist by the standards of Orthodox Marxists.

     The people of the Paris Commune took up arms, and bore them in public. Modern Libertarians and Marxists alike criticize Ronald Reagan for repressing the Black Panthers for insisting on being armed in public. The divide between libertarians and the far-left thus seems to be shrinking.
     Many radical Marxists now realize that the right to be armed in public is valuable, because they know that it is necessary for the most vulnerable people in our society to defend themselves, when the tools of social and racial oppression against them are deadly. There were even murmurs of "Tenth Amendment solutions" - that is, states' rights, Jeffersonian nullification, and "devolving" federal duties to the states - in some Democratic circles in early 2017. Andrew Yang is running for president as a Democrat, yet has a noticeable libertarian following.
     Some communists and socialists are coming around to libertarian ideas; while others are not. The opposite is true as well; many American libertarians are realizing that capitalism isn't working, and are turning to ideas like "free market anti-capitalism" and "markets, not capitalism" for answers and solutions. Once convinced that totally free markets imply statelessness while capitalism too often relies on subsidies from the state, many of these libertarians turn to quasi-socialist economic theories like Georgism and Mutualism for additional answers. From there, it's a short leap to stateless forms of socialism and communism.
     The reason why I am one of these libertarians - that is, one whom is interested in socialism, and not afraid of communism - is because I know socialism and capitalism do not always have to result in some certain political system, with certain modes of oppression. They are economic systems, which can be mixed, especially in an environment which is free of the state, and free of its repressive social and economic agenda (which further its aims of control and centralization of power).
     Additionally, I know that classical liberals were grouped together with leftists in the late 19th century French parliament, and that the original "libertarians" were the late 19th century and early 20th century European social anarchists.
     Democrats, socialists, and communists do not need to be rejected and maligned by libertarians, nor threatened to be thrown out of a helicopter. Democracy is not harmful if it is consensus-based, and has a concern for the minorities' rights and the right to opt-out and dissent. Any and all democrats, socialists, and communists who care about these things, and local needs - as well as individual human rights; such as our needs for social freedom and to defend ourselves, and our needs as workers to own the machines on which we depend on for survival -  should be considered potential friends of libertarians.
     That's because those leftists value what libertarians care about most: diminishing the ability of the centralized state to use violent enforcement to control our society and our economy without the consultation of the local population. They might have slightly different reasons for doing that at times, but Agorist Wally Conger explains in his book Agorist Class Theory that radical libertarians basically want to achieve the same goals as Marx did, but through different means and methods.
     This might help explain why Ron Paul was called a "communist" by some Republicans (mostly for his non-interventionist foreign policy); it's because libertarians and socialists are that strongly opposed to fascism, that to a Republican, they are difficult to distinguish (especially on issues related to the use of the state and military, and their violence, to give preferential treatment to one economic system or another, especially when that system is fascism).
     For all these reasons, and more, anarcho-communists and anarcho-capitalists should not be at each other's throats, claiming that each other's economic system always leads to fascism, while denying what they themselves did to allow that to happen by setting a bad example. To the contrary; ancoms and ancaps should be working together to build a new and better economy, based on the freedom-minded ideals which they determine, through negotiation, that they have in common.

     There is a way to reconcile capitalism and socialism, after all, without it leading to fascism. The way to do that is to refuse to rely on the state to moderate, arbitrate, or supervise such negotiations.

     The time for more communication across economic schools of thought is now. I encourage my readers to read about, and study, alternative economic proposals and systems, especially the anarchist and libertarian varieties. Especially - for the purposes of this essay - Mutualism, market socialism, Georgism, Geo-Libertarianism, panarchy, and anarchism of the "autonomist" and "platformist" varieties. Additionally, economic theories which reject the need for left-vs.-right systemization, such as gift economies, "post-scarcity economics" and "post-scarcity economics" and related topics.
     The dispute between minarchists (advocates of minimum government) and anarchists, is unnecessary; the minimum amount of government is zero. Just think about how much taxpayer money the government would save, if it did nothing at all.

1. Acosta Resigns in Shame as Administration Defends Trump Ties to Epstein, Racist Border Policies and Rhetoric

     On Saturday, July 6th, supposed billionaire Jeffrey Epstein (pronounced EP-steen) was arrested on suspicion of sexually abusing girls as young as 14 years old. On Monday, July 8th, he entered a "not guilty" plea.
     The Republican Party and its supporters spent the following week - mid-July 2019 - in full defense their full racist, xenophobic, Israel-first, pedophile- and child-trafficking- enabling agenda, to defend the man, and to assist Trump in distancing himself from Epstein. Additionally, they came out to support the Trump Administration's racist agenda concerning immigration and the patrolling of the U.S.-Mexico border.
     The Trump Administration and its defenders, as well as numerous media sources, did this, whether directly and overtly, or through omission. Media have sources downplayed the seriousness of the charges against Epstein, and refraining from mentioning the fact that he was sentenced to jail previously, and served thirteen months, for procuring an underage girl for prostitution. Which means that he admitted to soliciting teenage girls for prostitution, and was convicted. Plea bargaining does involve pleading guilty to some lesser charge, and in 2008, Epstein pleaded guilty to soliciting an underage girl for prostitution by a state court in Florida as part of his plea bargain. (which Alexander Acosta helped him get).
     Thus, many media sources have neglected to call Epstein a convict and a billionaire at the same time; while some have their doubts about whether he was a billionaire, he certainly was convicted of underage prostitution (and served time for it). It seems that some mainstream media outlets might want to "lessen the blow" of this news, to prevent the scandal from blowing up and implicating too many people (and maybe even people associated with both major American political parties).
     In assisting Trump in his attempts to distance himself from Epstein, Trump's employees and supporters have had to engage in all sorts of cognitive dissonance in order to maintain their illusion that the administration isn't enabling the kidnapping and sexual abuse of children (both by Epstein and by agents of I.C.E. and the U.S. border patrol).
     Here are a few of the stories, from mid-July 2019, about the recent impact of the Epstein scandal and the "family separation policy" scandal upon American political discourse.

     - On Friday, July 12th, Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta was forced to resign in shame after news broke that, in 2007 or 2008, he had helped give alleged billionaire Jeffrey Epstein immunity from federal prosecution for his charges stemming from allegations of molesting a teenage girl and procuring a child prostitute in 2005. Acosta did this, without informing the victims of the deal, while serving as an attorney for the Bush Administration.
     Bizarrely, the reason Acosta had reportedly given for allowing such leniency in this “sweetheart deal” was the fact that he was told Epstein “belonged to intelligence”. Investigative journalist Vicky Ward claims that Acosta - a former U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Florida, based in Miami - told interviewers, "I was told that Epstein 'belonged to intelligence' and to leave it alone". Acosta also told interviewers about the Obama-Trump transition, that Epstein was "above his [Acosta's] pay grade". Epstein supposedly bragged about being an intelligence agent around the time of his first conviction.
     Following Epstein's death in jail on August 10th, some have speculated as to whether Epstein was, in fact, a billionaire at all, rather than simply someone with V.I.P. status who earns influence and power through blackmailing people. One can't help but wonder how easy it would be for a person with connections such as Epstein's to fake his own death and disappear (whether he actually possesses billions of dollars or not).
     The New York Post and The New York Daily News reported that in January 2011, Manhattan District Attorney Jennifer Gaffney, of Cyrus Vance Jr.'s sex crimes unit, asked a judge to downgrade Epstein's sex offender status.

     - The story broke that conservatives were wrong to doubt the story of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley, who claimed that migrant detainees were being told to drink out of the toilet, after they visited I.C.E. detention facilities on Tuesday, July 2nd.
     Pressley reportedly tested a water dispenser (which housed both a toilet and a drinking fountain) to find out whether the back chamber that dispenses drinking water was working, and she discovered that it was not, which seems to imply that some migrants are being told to drink out of the toilet by officials when the water dispenser stops working.

     - On Sunday, July 14th, President Trump engaged in what was called a “racist tirade” on Twitter. His tirade was a criticism of “the Squad”, a group of four Democratic women of color serving in the U.S. House. According to Trump's tweets, these women (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar) are “anti-USA”, “anti-Israel”, “pro-terrorist”, and “pro Al-Qaeda”. The president sent a tweet which blatantly denigrated these women on the basis of their race or ethnic heritage.
     Trump tweeted the following [Note: Only one of those four people at which this tweet was directed, was born outside of the United States.]:

     So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from other countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don't they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly. you can't leave fast enough, I'm sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!”.

     - On Wednesday, July 17
th, former Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway asked a reporter, “What is your ethnicity?” for seemingly no reason, when he asked her about which countries the congresswomen Trump was referring to, ought to “go back” to. After the reporter contested the idea that his ethnicity has anything to do with his question, Conway contended that its relevance had to do with the fact that the president used the phrase “originally came from”.
     Kellyanne Conway and the president seem to believe that even if you were born in the United States, you are “originally from” wherever your parents came from. These people believe it's possible to be “ethnically from” a place you've never been to.

     - The same day (Wednesday, July 17
th), President Trump held a rally in Greenville, North Carolina, where the crowd chanted “send her back” (i.e., to Somalia) at Trump's mention of Ilhan Omar. Omar, who represents a district in Minnesota, was born in Somalia, and legally immigrated to the United States, becoming naturalized no earlier than the year 2000.
     CBS has since reported that Trump has stated that he was not happy about the fact that the crowd chanted "send her back". Trump has insisted that he did not inspire the chant. He also accused Representative Omar of praising al-Qaeda (or, at least, of taking a tone, in the course of her comments about al-Qaeda, which suggests to the president that she does not take the terrorist group seriously).
     In the wake of the "send her back" chant, and the fallout from that controversy, hordes of Trump supporters subsequently rushed to Trump's defense. Trump and his supporters hit back against this newly-assembled “Squad” of four progressive Democrats, and against Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar regarding her July 15th statement that it is time to start the process of impeaching President Trump.
     Additionally, on July 17th, Congress voted to condemn Trump's language. The voting on that resolution fell mostly along partisan lines, with 240 members (mostly Democrats) voting in favor of the resolution, and 187 voting against. Several political figures and media sources noted that, as part of its guidelines, the Equal Employment Commission regards telling someone to "go back where you came from" as an example of employment discrimination, and as an offense which merits firing (even though it is not an overtly racist statement, but a xenophobic one).
     On July 18th, it was reported that Ilhan Omar responded to Trump's comments about her. Omar referred to Trump "spewing his fascist ideology onstage" and repeated claims that he is a racist. This came about two weeks after a video, released by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, showed the New York Congresswoman calling Trump a "fascist" as well.

     - On Thursday, July 18th, M.S.N.B.C. broadcast a video of Donald Trump partying with N.F.L. cheerleaders and Jeffrey Epstein in Florida back in 2002. The publication of that video, which M.S.N.B.C. said it acquired back in 2015, occurred after Trump stated that he had a falling-out with Epstein. In that statement, Trump seemed to be subtly implying that the tiff was over Epstein's pedophilia.
     That video was publicized eight days after the Daily Beast reported that Epstein had invited solely himself, Trump, and "28 girls" to a party at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. The purpose of the 1992 party, organized by George Houraney of the American Dream Enterprise, was to bring the "girls" in as beauty pageant contestants for a "calendar girl" event.
     Houraney quoted Trump as having said of Epstein's behavior, "Look, I'm putting my name on this. I wouldn't put my name on it and have a scandal." Trump has also made statements about his falling-out with Epstein, which seem to suggests that he saw Epstein at a party, hitting on someone who was too young, prompting a negative reaction from Trump, and their subsequent dissociation.
     Despite Trump's insistence that he and Epstein had not associated with one another in fifteen years, several news outlets have also pointed out that - despite the possibility that Trump's 2008 statement could be interpreted as neutral in terms of reflecting Trump's opinion of the man - Trump's admission that he knew Epstein liked “younger women”, could very well suggest that Trump knew Epstein was interested in “underage women” (i.e., underage girls who are legal minors and cannot consent to sex).
     [Note: “Underage women” is a made-up euphemism for “girls”, which is used by deceptive media sources that wish to downplay the seriousness of child sex trafficking and child rape.]

     - Additionally, on Thursday, June 27th (before all of the above events occurred), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had replaced a House version of an immigration funding bill with a Senate version which benefited the border and I.C.E. much more, and the incarcerated children much less, than the progressive Democrats would have cared to tolerate. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi buckled, and bowed to McConnell and the Republicans, allowing the Senate's version of the border aid bill to be sent to Trump for approval.

     Policy concerning immigration and borders has been one of the biggest points of division between Speaker Pelosi and the staunchly progressive Democrats and “Justice Democrats”. Pelosi's caution, hesitancy, and incrementalism, is wearing these farther-left elements out. It's difficult to tell how long they will be able to tolerate Pelosi, while she is criticizing them for some of the same reasons Trump is criticizing them (albeit less often).
     Due to the news of the last three weeks, and this week in particular, it has become all but impossible – for everyone except the most hopelessly brainwashed believers in the president – to deny that Donald Trump and his administration represent the interests of elite pedophiles, Israeli expansionists, and racists who want to unfairly deny human rights and fair trials and asylum rights to immigrants who (for whatever reason) are in this country without permission.
     It has become difficult to deny that Trump's associations with Jeffrey Epstein are concerning, given recent revelations concerning their relationship and how long it lasted, and the approving tone of Trump's 2002 statement about Epstein's predilection for "younger" women. It is now impossible to deny this administration's pattern of racism, xenophobia, Islamophobia, misogyny, and sexual predation upon women and children.
     The administration spent July 2019 communicating, in no uncertain terms, that it intends to put Israeli interests before the interests of American citizens, and the interests of corrupt American governments before the interests of non-violent undocumented immigrants. Additionally, that it is willing to ignore serious allegations about the trafficking of children and separation of families (both by Epstein and at the U.S.-Mexico border).
     But let's not bite off more than we can chew too early, and take this one step at a time. For now, we'll leave the issues at the border aside, and focus on Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell, two of the attorneys who assisted Epstein, and the allegations against Prince Andrew and others.

2. The Reporting on, and Charges Against, Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell (including Prince Andrew)

     Some of the earliest mainstream reporting of the Jeffrey Epstein scandal was done by The Guardian in March 2011 (although Bob Fitrakis alluded to Epstein's "enigmatic" nature in his 2003 coverage of Leslie Wexner for In February 2015, Republican Party chairman Reince Priebus wrote an article criticizing the lack of media coverage of Bill Clinton's possible ties with Jeffrey Epstein.
     Julie K. Brown of the Miami Herald has been one of the most instrumental reporters in bringing this case to the public's attention (at least as far as 2019 goes; British sources revealed some of Prince Andrew's and Jeffrey Epstein's crimes as early as 2011). Brown has done extensive reporting on Epstein's case, and has appeared in numerous television interviews throughout July 2019. Brown interviewed Virginia Giuffre and three other of the first few women to come out with accusations against Epstein in 2019.
     Another reporter who helped uncover details of the Epstein story was New York -based columnist Vicky Ward, who claims that her Vanity Fair editor stopped her from exposing Epstein way back in 2003, a full sixteen years before his final arrest and death. Vicky Ward reported that in the 1980s, Epstein bragged to friends about "helping America get money back from people". Epstein's consulting firm, International Assets Group Inc. (I.A.G.), founded in 1981, reportedly helping clients to recover stolen and embezzled funds from fraudulent brokers and lawyers. Reportedly, at other times, Epstein was working for clients who embezzled funds themselves.
     Another investigator of Epstein's crimes was a detective named Joseph Recarey, based in Palm Beach. In May 2018, it was reported that Recarey had died after a "brief illness", and that story was picked up again in early September 2019.
     Among the revelations which were unearthed by the reporting of Brown, Ward, and others, Epstein's victims were, at their youngest, either age 12 or 14 (there are conflicting reports about this). The New York Post reported that one year on Epstein's birthday, he flew-in three 12-year-old French girls - by some sources, reportedly triplets - to his island to give him oral sex to celebrate the occasion.

     Jeffrey Epstein's “handler” in these operations, was a woman named Ghislaine (pronounced zhee-LEN”) Maxwell. Maxwell is a British national, she is French-born, her father Robert Maxwell was Jewish, and her mother's family was Huguenot.
     On the July 18th episode of Morning Joe, M.S.N.B.C.'s Mika Brzezinski pointed out that Ghislaine Maxwell was spotted in the background of the 1992 video of Trump and Epstein partying together with Miami Dolphins cheerleaders. Allegedly, Ghislaine Maxwell, usually referred to as Epstein's “handler” or "social fixer", was Epstein's chief partner-in-crime, as well as his former lover.
     Ghislaine Maxwell helped Epstein find girls to victimize. She did this by getting to know them, gaining their trust, and offering them opportunities to further their careers. Ghislaine Maxwell allegedly instructed the girls about how to please Epstein and other men - including "step by step" lessons in how to give oral sex - as part of their "training". The girls ended up massaging and having sex with Epstein and his friends.
     Four or five (or more) of these women have made statements against Epstein, while three dozen underage girls or more have allegedly been victimized. Some of the victims acted as recruiters as well, including Johanna Sjoberg, who says her role was to provide Epstein with girls three times a day. Sjoberg also claims that Prince Andrew once fondled her breast at Epstein's home.
      As part of the compensation for Ghislaine Maxwell's services, Epstein supposedly offered her a private jet, and a townhouse in Manhattan. If Maxwell is convicted of the charges against her, she could serve in prison under anti- child trafficking statutes.

     Giuffre's lawsuit against Ghislaine Maxwell is a civil suit, not a criminal one. In a criminal suit, Giuffre accused Epstein of using her a sex slave at the age of 15, and additionally accused Prince Andrew, Duke of York, of raping her. Giuffre alleged that she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew three times, at the age of 17. The British press refers to Prince Andrew as "Randy Andy".
    On August 28th, Giuffre urged the duke to "come clean". Buckingham Palace called the allegations "categorically untrue", despite the photographic evidence which exists, depicting Prince Andrew with Virginia Giuffre (then Virginia Roberts) in 2001.
     The Express and Inquisitr reported in 2019 that Sarah Ferguson, former Duchess of York and Prince Andrew's ex-wife, said of Epstein in 2011, “This was a gigantic error of judgment on my behalf. I am just so contrite I cannot say. Whenever I can, I will repay the money and will have nothing ever to do with Jeffrey Epstein every again.” Andrew and Sarah divorced in 1996 after ten years of marriage.

     Giuffre additionally claims that Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell forced her to have sex with billionaire Glenn Dubin, the husband of former model Eva Andersson-Dubin, which the couple had denied, following an alleged falling-out with Epstein. This was allegedly over his hitting on their 15-year-old Swedish nanny, although the couple might have had full knowledge of this, as the nanny was delivered by Ghislaine Maxwell.
     Giuffre has also accused former Senate majority leader and Clinton -appointed U.S. Attorney George Mitchell of using her as a sex slave. Mitchell denied it, denied knowledge of any of Epstein's crimes, and stated that he did not communicate with Epstein after his Florida sex crime case began in 2006. Senator George Mitchell allegedly said of Epstein in 2002, “He has supported some philanthropic projects of mine and organized a fund-raiser for me once. I would certainly call him a friend and a supporter.”
     Giuffre additionally alleges that Al Gore flew on Epstein's plane.

     This story about sex trafficking of teenage girls is bad - and politically suspicious - enough already as it is.
     But if we look deeper into this story, it becomes obvious right away that this is not just a case of an adult man engaging in predatory sexual behavior against teenage girls, and setting up a sex trafficking ring (as horrible as those crimes are). This is, in fact, a story about political corruption and blackmail, every bit as much as it is a story about sex trafficking. The fact that the Secretary of Labor, Alexander Acosta, had to resign because of his role in the scandal, should be enough evidence for the notion that the surface of this scandal is covering up for political goals.
     But in case that's not enough to tell us that something suspicious is going on, the fact that Acosta described Epstein as “intelligence”, should tip us off as well. So should Dershowitz's reputation for unethical behavior on the job.

     Acosta's comments should prompt us to ask: For which country was Epstein working for "intelligence" (as Acosta stated)? The U.S., Israel, both, or some other country entirely?
     Acosta's comments should also tip us off to the possibility of a cover-up, since Epstein served only 13 months in jail, reportedly abused women while on work release, and was even free to continue managing financial accounts (or, possibly, moving money around in order to use financial scams to fund blackmail operations) as part of the conditions of that work release arrangement. Acosta, Cyrus Vance, and others involved in letting Epstein off easy, should have known that Epstein was too dangerous a criminal to deserve work release, and that suggests either collusion or severe incompetence on their parts.
     Epstein's victimization of women while on work release (twelve hours of it per day, by the way) – and, now, the way he was taken off suicide watch and then died in jail with no video evidence - suggest that negligence alone could not possibly explain the level of “benefit of the doubt” Epstein was given while serving thirteen of the fourteen months he was supposed to spend in jail. All of this suggests deliberate and conscious collusion to protect Epstein and his operations.
     Let us turn now to the issues of exactly what Epstein and Maxwell are accused of, and what evidence supports the claims that presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump knew Jeffrey Epstein.

3. Was Jeffrey Epstein Friends with Donald Trump and Bill Clinton?

     The most important pieces of information implicating Jeffrey Epstein in sex crimes against underage girls, are the police reports filed by at least 4 or 5 women initially - and, eventually, 23 or more - whom have alleged direct abuse by Epstein. Another source of information is, potentially, the flight logs of Air Force One (that is, if Epstein ever flew on it with either Bill Clinton or Donald Trump). That information will likely be very difficult for ordinary researchers to obtain.
     But additional pieces of information, which could potentially implicate not only Epstein and his employees but also myriad celebrities and political figures, exist as well. They lie in Epstein's “black book” of contacts, as well as the flight log of Epstein's plane (dubbed the “Lolita Express”, after the 1955 novel Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov).

     On December 28th, 2010, Alfredo Rodriguez died of mesothelioma at the age of 60. Rodriguez had worked as Jeffrey Epstein's butler, and, as such, became acquainted with intimate details of his sex life. Such details include maintaining Epstein's drawer full of sex toys.
     While working for Epstein, Rodriguez managed to steal Epstein's “black book” – that is, a book of contacts, or a journal, or both – and tried to sell it for $50,000. He was jailed for 18 months for doing so. The year after Rodriguez died, it was reported that the journal contained information regarding “the full scope and the extent of Epstein's involvement with underage girls”.

     The Lolita Express was either the actual name which Epstein gave to his plane, and/or the nickname which the press gave to the plane; it's not clear whether Epstein referred to his plane as "the Lolita Express" openly. After Epstein's arrest, but before his death, unsubstantiated rumors spread that the C.I.A. co-owned the plane along with Epstein.
     The purpose of Epstein's "Lolita Express" was to make flights to and from Jeffrey Epstein's several personal private islands in the U.S. Virgin Islands, including Little Saint James and "Little Saint Jeff's" (which Epstein named after himself). Reportedly, residents on neighboring islands knew Epstein's islands as “Pedophile Island” and “Orgy Island”. Those islands are near St. Thomas.
     After Epstein's arrest, one of the islands was found to contain a small, cube-shaped temple, colored blue and white, with a gold dome. Reporters noted that that temple had a "medieval" lock on it, which allowed it to be locked from the outside, which bizarrely seems to be there in order to keep people in and prevent them from exiting, rather than to keep people out.

     Bill Clinton flew on Epstein's “Lolita Express” either four, six, or twenty-six times, depending on which source you're relying.
     On July 9th, 2019, The Washington Examiner reported that Clinton was shown to have flown on the plane six times, instead of the four times to which he admitted. On August 19th, 2019, the Daily Beast reported that Clinton flew on Epstein's jet four times, and visited Epstein at least twice; once at his apartment in Manhattan, and another time at his office in Harlem. The Daily Beast also reported that in 1993, Epstein visited the White House and donated $10,000 to the White House Historical Association.
     Clinton admitted to taking four trips with Epstein on his plane, to promote the work of the Clinton Foundation and other charity organizations. One such trip was in 2002, a flight on which actor Kevin Spacey and actor/comedian Chris Tucker were passengers. Spacey's career was recently ruined when it was revealed that he tried to seduce a 14-year-old boy several decades ago. Spacey's Kevin Spacey Foundation recently shut down in the U.K. after those revelations emerged, and people began to suspect that the foundation was a ploy to get young male actors close to Spacey and other Hollywood sexual predators.
     It has been reported that Clinton used the initials “B.C.”, or a pseudonym “Sterling Burns” (possibly a reference to Clinton's gray sideburns), or both, while flying on the Lolita Express. Clinton's name "Bill Clinton" appears at least once. One researcher of the Epstein scandal claimed that, since F.A.A. laws require all passengers to be accounted for, even the underage passengers signed, possibly using initials. Some suspect Hillary of visiting "Orgy Island" along with Bill on at least one occasion.
     No photographic evidence has come out which would indicate that Jeffrey Epstein and Bill Clinton have ever met, much less publicly. But Clinton's admission to flying with Epstein four times - as well as Clinton's and Epstein's praises of one another - show that they have been friends in the past. Epstein reportedly called Clinton "the world's greatest politician". NYMag reported that a spokesman for Bill Clinton said of Epstein in 2002, “Jeffrey is both a highly successful financier and a committed philanthropist with a keen sense of global markets and an in-depth knowledge of twenty-first-century science.”
     Another strange fact regarding Epstein's relationship with Bill Clinton is that, as Vanity Fair and The New York Post reported, Epstein had a painting of Bill Clinton in his home, depicting Clinton in a blue dress (which could be a reference to the Monica Lewinsky scandal).

     Clinton aside, we know much more about Trump's relationship to Epstein.
     As explained above, M.S.N.B.C. played a video which which showed Donald Trump partying and dancing with Jeffrey Epstein and cheerleaders in 1992. Trump and Epstein have been photographed together at least three times: once in 1992, and again in 1997 and 2000. Epstein and Trump have been described as "wingmen", and were frequently seen and photographed together at Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach.
     Following Epstein's arrest, numerous media sources reported about a 2002 biographical article about Epstein, in which Donald Trump told New York Magazine“I've known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy. He's a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it, Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”
     Strangely enough, it turns out that "Jane Doe" / "Katie Johnson", the woman who in June 2016 accused Trump of raping her in 1994 (when she was 13), claims that that rape took place at a party hosted by Epstein.
     Epstein's black book contained 14 phone numbers for Trump and his employees. On August 9th, 2019, the Washington Examiner reported that flight logs from the Lolita Express show that Trump flew on the plane in 1997.
     Until Epstein's indictment in mid-2019, nothing but glowing reviews of Epstein have come from the two presidents, Clinton and Trump.

[Note: The above images were not created by the author of this blog.]

     The final image, in the series of photographs above, shows the name "President William J. Clinton" appearing in what is supposedly Epstein's flight log. The names Kevin Spacey and Chris Tucker appear alongside Clinton's, on the log of passengers from a 2002 flight to Africa. Some researchers have alleged that Clinton's name appears in the Lolita Express flight log six times, while other researchers say he flew on the plane 26 times.
     The rest of the images above show Epstein's black book of contacts. Note the dozens of phone numbers for Epstein himself, as well as for massage therapists, particularly in Florida. The New York Times has reported that Epstein and his associates used the word "massage" as code for "sex". This seems like strong evidence suggesting that that we are really looking at Epstein's contact information.

     In the Lolita Express flight logs, and in Epstein's black book, names of countless celebrities and politicians have been found; from attorney Alan Dershowitz to actor (and attempted statutory rapist) Kevin Spacey, from comedic actor Chris Tucker to Prince Andrew Duke of York, from former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak to supermodel Naomi Campbell, from comedian Kevin Hart to musician Courtney Love, and even Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka and former wife Ivana, and possibly Bill Clinton. Steven Pinker, Bill Cosby, Woody Allen, even Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel.
     Other people whose names appear in Epstein's black book include George Stephanopoulos, Chelsea Handler, Ralph Fiennes, Michael Bloomberg, Dustin Hoffman, Andrew Cuomo, Katie Couric, Kerry Kennedy Cuomo, David Koch, Joan Rivers, David Rockefeller, David Blaine, John Kerry, Bill Richardson, Sandy Berger, George Mitchell, Tony Blair, Lawrence Summers, Sara Duchess of York, Peter Soros, Maria Shriver, Edourard de Rothschild, Evelyn de Rothschild, Bruce King, Eva Andersson Dubin, Alberto Pinto, Bill Maronet, Caroline Stark, Michelle Campos, Griffin Dunne, Andrew Jarecki, Randy James, Gerald Edelman, Christophe Gaie, Cindy Lopez, Dana Giaccheto, Flavio Briatore, Larry Visoski, Joseph Rueda, Richard Johnson, Craig Tafoya, Don Engle, and Carlos Souza.
     Two U.S. presidents – Clinton and Trump – and Andrew Duke of York? And former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak as well? While the investigation into the NXIVM cult is revealing ties to the Clintons, Gillibrands, and Bronfman families? We're talking about a sex trafficking that served major leaders of at least three or four different countries here! How far the Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking ring could go, should not be underestimated.
     There is nothing about this case which suggests that it is chiefly about so-called "underage prostitution” (i.e., child sex trafficking), and not so much about political corruption and blackmail to support the growth of American and Israeli military power and economic influence. The ties to politics in multiple countries, and to various sectors of the entertainment industry, which Epstein's black book indicates, should neither be ignored nor downplayed.

     In the wake of Epstein's death, the investigations into Epstein's affairs ended, for all cases in which Jeffrey Epstein was the sole person alleged to have committed a crime. Also, allegations which Virginia Giuffre made against Alan Dershowitz and Prince Andrew in 2015 were struck from the court record by District Judge Kenneth Marra in April 2015.
     Fortunately for his victims, however, a woman named Jennifer Araoz has filed charges against Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell, and several of Epstein's former employees. Araoz (pronounced, strangely enough, uh-ROWZ; that is, like "arouse") says she has never met Maxwell in person, but claims to have been sexually abused by Epstein. Reportedly, the discovery process in Araoz's case is underway, and attorneys are trying to determine the names of Epstein's former maids, secretaries, etc. who may have assisted in his procuring and transportation of underage girls.
     Additionally, on August 27th, Epstein's victims made statements in court, reflecting their horror and dismay at the fact that Epstein's death deprived them of a fair trial and justice, and demanding that Ghislaine Maxwell and other employees of Epstein be held accountable. So, despite Epstein's death, investigations are still ongoing.

4. Epstein's Ties to Robert Maxwell, Leslie Wexner, Ehud Barak, the Khashoggis, and Iran-Contra

     I'll leave it to my readers to judge for themselves what the British monarchy outside of Prince Andrew, and the British government, have to do with all of this; although I would advise my readers to look into Robert Maxwell's affairs in the United Kingdom, accusations that the British royal family is engaged in child sex trafficking, and to familiarize themselves with child sex crimes in the United Kingdom by educating themselves about the Hempstead scandal.
     But the issue of Israel's role cannot go unaddressed, considering that former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak allegedly flew on the Lolita Express and appears in its flight logs. Barak, Israel's former defense minister, even admitted that he visited Epstein, but (as the Daily Beast reported) he "never met any girls".

     On August 16th, Counterpunch reported the following:

     “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.”

     Thus, researchers suspect Robert Maxwell of having helped the State of Israel acquire a tracking technology called PROMIS (or perhaps PRISM, a predecessor of PROMIS) through theft; and they believe that this action, long ago, made it easier for Israel to track down and kill Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
     And that seems to be the case, because without Maxwell's help, Israel would not have the spying and tracking technology it has now. The PROMIS software which Maxwell allegedly stole and gave to Israel, probably allowed Israel to develop the Pegasus phone spying software it uses now. The company behind Pegasus is the Israel-based NSO Group Technologies.
     In June 2019, The Jacobin reported that "media reports have confirmed that the Saudi intelligence agency that murdered Khashoggi spent $55 million to purchase Pegasus for use against enemies of" Saudi Arabia. The Jacobin reported that the Saudis likely tracked Khashoggi down by infecting the cell phone of Khashoggi's colleague, the Saudi-Canadian activist Omar Abdulaziz.
    Jamal Khashoggi - murdered on October 2nd, 2018 - was the nephew of Saudi billionaire, businessman, and arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi, Adnan Khashoggi was assassinated on June 6th, 2018, sixteen months prior to his nephew's death. Adnan Khashoggi was reportedly infatuated with teenage girls, "collected" "pleasure wives", and was notorious for going on cruises with prostitutes.
     If the allegations about the PROMIS software are true, then the question of "who put a hit out on Jamal Khashoggi" (Adnan's nephew) may be "Jeffrey Epstein and former Israeli Prime Minister Barak", or someone in the startup which they reportedly headed together (originally called Reporty, later renamed Carbyne).
     It should also be noted that it may very well be that the Israelis are responsible for Adnan Khashoggi's death. Jamal Khashoggi reportedly had a hit put out on him by Saudi Prince Muhammad bin Salman, so either the Israelis helped track Khashoggi down, or they had nothing to do with it. In my opinion, neither Saudi nor Israeli complicity should be ruled out in either case.

      Considering that Epstein's former lover and chief partner-in-crime, Ghislaine Maxwell, was born in Israel; and that her father, Robert Maxwell, served as an M.P. (Member of Parliament) in the British Labor Party. 
     Supposedly, Ghislaine was the most like Robert of his several daughters, and she “followed him into the family business”; i.e., spying on behalf of Israel. Maxwell made his money in publishing, most notoriously by robbing his own companies' pension funds of some $900 million. Those companies were newspapers belonging to Maxwell's media company Mirror Group. Like his former lover's father, Epstein, too, possibly swindled people out of hundreds of millions at a time; on August 19th, the Daily Beast reported that a number of Epstein's former clients claimed that he scammed them, and was operating a Ponzi scheme.
     Robert Maxwell, born Jan Ludvik Hyman Binyamin Hoch in 1923 in Czechoslovakia, died mysteriously in Spain in 2005, after allegedly “falling off of his yacht”, a vessel which he had named “Lady Ghislaine” after his “favorite daughter”. Maxwell died under suspicious circumstances; he was supposedly naked at the time of his death, and the cause of his death remains unclear. Some reports say he fell off of his yacht, while others allege he was pushed.
     Since Maxwell's death, it has come out that he had served as an “Israeli super-spy". In 2003, a book was published by authors Gordon Thomas and Martin Dillon, which was entitled Robert Maxwell, Israel's Superspy. Maxwell likely served in M.O.S.S.A.D., the Israeli equivalent of the C.I.A..
     Some believe that M.O.S.S.A.D. assassinated Maxwell after he "became a liability". For all we know, Epstein could have been killed for more or less the same reason (i.e., to prevent him from talking). Some researchers have noted the similarity between Epstein's death, and the death of Lee Harvey Oswald (who told reporters "I'm a patsy"). Oswald, too, was allegedly killed - by Jack Ruby, likely an Israeli spy - to for the same reason.
     Robert Maxwell received a state funeral in Israel and is buried on the Mount of Olives. Ohio-based reporter Ben Swann has reported that Robert Maxwell was not one of Epstein's clients.

     These revelations – concerning Epstein, his hiring of Dershowitz, and the allegations surrounding Ehud Barak and Robert Maxwell and Khashoggi – were disturbing enough as things were. But the reactions of officials in the Trump Administration to these revelations – particularly by the president himself, and Jared Kushner – were notably underwhelming and careless.

     The Trump Administration didn't seem to want anybody to want to talk about Khashoggi's death, and seemed to want to discourage questioning of the administration, and further discussion of the issue in general. It seemed like something was up.

     An August 23rd article from noted the Clintons' connections to the Iran-Contra affair of 1985-1989, and reported that the "C.I.A.-linked" Bank of Credit and Commerce International (B.C.C.I.) "played a key role in the Iran-Contra affair and accounts of the bank were used to send payoffs to individuals linked to the scheme." The article continued: "Adnan Khashoggi, a key figure and intermediary in the scandal, used one BCCI account to move more than $20 million related to illegal arms sales and BCCI created fake documentation, including checks signed by Oliver North, allowing the sale to go forward."
     What this means is that Khashoggi used a Clinton- and C.I.A.- linked bank to send people money to stay quiet about Iran-Contra, with the approval of a lieutenant colonel of the U.S. military. During the 1980s, Adnan Khashoggi was reportedly one of Jeffrey Epstein's clients, and Khashoggi was acting as a "middleman" defense contractor, in the Iran-Contra weapons trafficking scandal, to transfer American weapons from Israel to Iran.
     The Iran-Contra Affair is difficult enough to explain and summarize by itself, especially since it requires explaining Middle East politics, Latin American politics, and the C.I.A.'s role in drug trafficking. Basically, while working as a military aide to the N.S.C. (U.S. National Security Council), lieutenant colonel Oliver North proposed a plan to sell weapons to the Iranians, and to funnel the profits from those weapons sales to the Contras in Nicaragua (the armed counterrevolutionary group which America was backing against the Sandinistas at the time).
     Readers can learn more about not only the Khashoggis' role in Iran-Contra, but also the alleged roles of Leslie Wexner and Israeli intelligence therein, by reading the articles summarizing those topics. The long and short of it is that Epstein allegedly sought money from Adnan Khashoggi, and the "philanthropic organization" that Epstein owned with Wexner was the M.O.S.S.A.D.-affiliated "Mega Group". As a reminder, Epstein reportedly admitted to "helping America get money back" from people, back in the 1980s, and reportedly claimed to have worked for the C.I.A..

      Is it possible that the Israelis killed Adnan Khashoggi, or his son, or even both, in order to prevent them from talking about this? The nephew Jamal was a journalist after all. And what else could Adnan, the billionaire Saudi arms dealer, have possibly known, which could implicate Israelis and/or Americans with guilt? Did the M.O.S.S.A.D. kill Adnan Khashoggi because he wouldn't pay Epstein? Did America help in either or both of these assassinations? Who knows?
     For now, we will turn to relations between the U.S. and the Middle East, in order to review some background information about the U.S.-Israeli and U.S.- Islamic World relationships, which will help put it all in context why the idea that Epstein could be an Israeli spy, is feasible in the first place (and, additionally, why Israel would want to spy on the United States, its supposed ally).
     But first, it should be noted that Epstein seeking money from Khashoggi, might have something to do with why, after he was arrested, a passport - with Epstein's picture, a fake name, and a fake residential address in Saudi Arabia - was found in  a safe in Epstein's home on the Upper East Side of New York City, along with money. The passport is from Austria, it was expired when it was found, and it was issued in the 1980s. Ryan Dawson's reporting pointed out that if Epstein flew to France and Spain, which seems to be the case, then the reported purpose of disguising Epstein doesn't make sense. That purpose was supposedly to hide Epstein's Jewish identity while traveling in Saudi Arabia or other Arab countries.
     Whatever the case with Epstein's travel history, Epstein's possession of the likely fraudulent passport seems to be an indication that Epstein was a "flight risk" who might leave the country if a warrant were put out for his arrest. Maybe Epstein had both friends and enemies in Saudi Arabia. Oddly enough, Adnan Khashoggi is one of the people who flew on the Lolita Express, according to a report by CNBC. So was King bin Salman of Saudi Arabia.


5. Background on U.S.-Middle East Relations

     The last few presidential administrations – Clinton, Bush, Obama, and Trump alike – have all insisted that, in the Middle East, Iran is the greater threat to the United States and to Israel, while Saudi Arabia is a potential partner for peace. Iran is arguably more hostile to both homosexuals and the Israelis than Saudi Arabia is, but U.S. intervention caused blowback which led to those Iranian policies and to a more hostile regime (which could now conveniently blame all the country's problems on America). If it were not for U.S. intervention, then a much milder and more secular regime would probably in power in Iran now.
     The U.S. had many chances to make Iran one of its major partners for peace in the Muslim world, and squandered those chances; by ousting Iran's democratically elected leader Mossadegh in 1953 (with Britain's help), and by arming Iraq and Iran at the same time during the late 1980s (while those two countries were at war with one another).
     Since 9/11, presidents Bush and Trump, Hillary Clinton, former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, and others (including government officials, academics, figures in media, and representatives of think tanks) have deliberately exaggerated the threat which Iran poses against America and Israel, and/or have made provocative and baseless remarks against the former prime minister of Iran Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

More than 3/4 of the 9/11 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia.
None were from Iran.

     Despite the fact that a Belgian court has refused to allow a 2012 U.S. court decision to stand, which attempted to strip Iran of sovereign immunity and allow the seizure of Iranian assets in Belgium in order to pay a 9/11 lawsuit, Iran is still widely hated due to its support for Israel's enemy Hezbollah, a Lebanon-based organization which Israel considers a terrorist group. Most Hezbollah members, like most Iranians, are Shi'ite Muslims (while the Saudis are mostly Sunnis). Still, today - nearly twenty years after 9/11 - the mere possibility of a link between Hezbollah, and whomever did the 9/11 attacks, is enough to keep most Americans angry at Iran.
     Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's 2005 comment that “Ayatollah Khamenei said 'this regime which is occupying Palestine must vanish from the page of history” has been distorted and re-translated in American media, to mean “Israel must be wiped off the map". This distortion has helped Islamophobic, pro-Israel American politicians back up their claims that Iran has threatened to “wipe Israel off the face of the Earth”.
     The implications about Iran's role in 9/11, and the lie about Iranian forces bombing a vessel in the Strait of Hormuz in June 2019, are both intended to hasten a war between Iran and the United States. These lies are both propagated in order to make people think that Iran has anything more violent than simply peaceful medical and energy purposes in mind when it comes to that country's nuclear energy program. Additionally, to make people think that Iran wants to deploy nuclear warheads on the State of Israel.
     But then, of course, Israel wouldn't need to risk anything in such a war between the U.S. and Iran. That's because America has become Israel's attack dog, even while America continues to sell Israel weapons and supply it with foreign aid that it never has to pay back. Iran, a nation of some eighty million people, is comprised of eighty million people who would have never become enemies of the American people, if it weren't for the provocative attitude the American government has against the Iranians. The same government which, as a reminder, deposed Iran's democratically elected leader Mossadegh in 1953, armed the Iranians and Iraqis against each other during the second half of the 1980s, and blew up an Iranian passenger jet with a missile in 1988 (killing 290 people). And if the U.S. didn't assist Israel in committing the 2010 Stuxnet attacks on Iran's nuclear facilities (which Israel almost certainly spearheaded), then the U.S., at the very least, knew about it and did nothing to stop it.
     Meanwhile, Iran hasn't attacked any one of its neighbors unprovoked in 200 years, and Iran has never attacked the United States or any of its military targets; while the U.S. has invaded Iran once and armed its enemy (Iraq) during the Iraqi-Iranian War. Ironically, despite the fear of Iran deploying nuclear warheads on Israel, Iran has signed the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty to refrain from selling nuclear weapons to other countries, while the State of Israel has not signed that treaty.
     And, in case the reader needs another reminder, America literally sold missiles to Iran with the help of Oliver North. If America wants to punish the people who arm hostile countries (as Iran supposedly is), then it should have taken the chance it had in the 1980s, to punish anyone and everyone involved in the Iran-Contra affair, in addition to Oliver North. That's because (to repeat) North approved a sale of missiles to Iran, and approved profiteering from it. He arguably committed treason in the process).
     During the Iran-Iraq War (which lasted from 1980 to 1988), there might have even been some points when the U.S. was actually arming Iraq and Iran against each other at the same time. But even if that didn't happen, it's clear that Iran still had American-bought missiles while it was fighting Iraq, while Saddam Hussein's Iraq was receiving assistance from the U.S. and France (among other countries).
     So even if Iran is really as dangerous as people like Rudy Giuliani say it is, then that is partially the fault of America, and numerous figures in the White House and military personnel of the Reagan and Bush administrations.
     We should ask whether there is any significance in the facts that Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel (author of Night) appeared both in Epstein's "black book" as well as alongside Giuliani at the "Stand For Freedom" rally against Iran. That rally served as a protest against the appearance of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (at that time the president of Iran) at the United Nations headquarters in New York.

     The reason why the United States and Israel tolerate Saudi Arabia as an ally, is because it has more proven oil reserves than any other country on Earth (except Venezuela). Before massive oil reserves were discovered in Venezuela, Saudi Arabia had the most proven reserves of any country. That's why many countries depend on Saudi Arabia for oil; for their energy. Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 asserted that, around 9/11, Saudi Arabia owned about 6% of the U.S. economy, through its massive share in the oil trade affecting the U.S..
     Which currency – U.S. Dollar, Euro, etc. - countries like Saudi Arabia and Iraq prefer to trade oil for, makes a lot of difference in terms of geopolitics, oil trade, and war. Readers wishing to learn more on this topic can look up the terms “petrodollar” and “petro-Euro”.
     Additionally, some suspect that the Saudi royal family's Jewish heritage somehow predisposes them to favor Israel. It has been reported that a man named Mohammed Sakher was murdered by the Saudi monarchy for revealing that the Jewish roots of the House of Saud lie in the "Anza ben Wa'el" and "Al-Masaleekh" clans. Whatever the case with that matter, the Saudis – like Assad of Syria – have become known to the Israelis as a familiar geopolitical actor whom they know how to deal with. So the Saudi regime is far from being on bad terms with Israel and the United States.

     Some ten years ago, a former C.I.A. agent came to the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and told the audience (myself included) that during the late 1990s, then President Bill Clinton sent 400 C.I.A. agents into Iraq. According to the speaker, the men were captured by Iraqi soldiers, and were told that they could either submit to being killed, or the Iraqi soldiers would hunt their families down and kill them. According to the speaker, the reason these men were sent into Iraq, was in response to Saddam Hussein “switching from the petro-Euro to the petrodollar”; essentially, for Hussein changing his preference, from taking dollars for oil, to taking Euro for oil. What this basically means is that Bill Clinton sent C.I.A. agents into Iraq – risking starting a potential second U.S.-Iraq war of the 1990s – all because the U.S. stood to lose a little bit of money, from having to buy Iraqi oil through European markets, instead of directly from the Hussein regime.
     The idea that the U.S. would start wars over oil, money, and influence as the world reserve currency, seems very careless. But that's because it is careless; it remains our foreign policy nonetheless.
     It's possible that the deaths of those 400 C.I.A. men could have discouraged Bill Clinton from starting a second full-on war against Iraq. It's possible that we haven't gone into Iran because it has a little oil, but not as much as Iraq does. It's possible that we'll still go to war with Iran, because of the oil that it does have. And it's possible that Iran's eighty-million-person population – and strong military ties with Syria, Pakistan, and Russia – could dissuade the United States from attempting any      kind of full-scale military invasion (or, hopefully, anything less as well).
     But several things are certain:
     First, that the Trump Administration, the C.I.A., and many other agencies advocating more military and diplomatic intervention in foreign countries as well as wars, are still hungry for war on Iran, and they have stated and demonstrated openly that they are prepared to lie to the American people in order to get away with it.
     Second, that strong U.S.-Saudi ties remain, because of American military bases in Arabia, and because of the Saudis' control of several percentage points of the American economy by way of their influence on the price at which Americans purchase oil from them.
     Third, that fifteen of the nineteen men who hijacked planes on September 11th, 2001, were from Saudi Arabia; and that, despite this fact - and despite the facts that Iran had nothing to do with 9/11, has been legally exonerated, and is even legally protected from having lawsuits brought against it by families of 9/11 victims – Iran continues to be blamed for 9/11 (or for terrorist attacks against the United States in general) more than the Saudis have.
     We should certainly be wary of any American attorneys who may have helped Israeli agents escape prosecution after 9/11. Which should bring us back to Jeffrey Epstein. But first, a brief history lesson.

6. A History Lesson on the Origin and Context of the Israeli State

     It would be difficult to say why, exactly, America can, at the same time, be an ally of both the State of Israel, and also the Saudi regime which is governing most of Arabia (and carrying out what many consider a genocidal war against the people of Yemen, with U.S. aerial assistance). A reasonable possibility is that Israel and Saudi Arabia have common enemies; namely, the small, chiefly Arab, states, which lie between the two countries and dot the perimeter of Saudi-controlled areas.
     A more conspiratorial, and debateable, possibility, has to do with the possible Jewish ancestry of leaders of the Saudi regime, and the facts that the Saudis gained control over Arabia after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire (and the defeat of Germany) with the help of the British, while Israel too received help from the British (as well as the French) to gain control of the Transjordan / British Mandate Palestine (until kicking the Brits and Palestinians out of the country at the same time, during the Israeli war of independence in 1947-48).
     At the time, the Germans (the Nazi regime included) also had at least two common interests with Jews: prevent intermarriage between Germans and Jews, and get the Jews out of Germany; and so, the Nazis were more than happy to ensure that all the boats leaving Germany with Jewish refugees were headed to Palestine and nowhere else. Jewish leaders selected by Nazis, to represent, and negotiate on behalf of, their communities – such as Rabbi Chaim Rumkowski, and officers in the Jewish Ghetto Police – were more than happy to save a few Jewish lives, if it meant acceding to Nazi demands, and showing faith by obeying the law in the process.
     The beginnings of an independent Jewish state in the Middle East, arguably begins at the start of World War I, when the Germans and the Ottoman Empire were allies. The Ottoman Empire's control over the Bosporus Strait, and passage through it, prevented easy British access to Russia through Crimea as well as Russian access to the Mediterranean. This created an obstacle to easy communications and trade between the British and Russians, which threatened to destabilize their alliance. Additionally, the Germans were strengthening their ties to the Middle East, by continuing to build a railway from Berlin to Baghdad. Thus, whom controlled the areas in between, became of high importance to the Germans, Ottomans, and Arabs alike.
     All of this only stood to increase the immense geopolitical and strategic value of the area which would soon become the State of Israel. It also set up a likely inevitable conflict concerning whom would gain official control over that area; between the Germans, the British, and the Jews of Europe and the Levant.

     Towards the end of World War I – in 1917 – the British government issued the Balfour Declaration, wherein British Foreign Secretary Lord Arthur Balfour promised Jewish-British politician and banker Walter Rothschild – of the Rothschild banking dynasty – that Britain would help establish a “national home for the Jewish people” in the Holy Land / Palestine.
     The point being: the set of regimes governing the Levant and Arabia nowadays – regardless of whether Jews, Arabs, or Turks are predominant there – were significantly conditioned by the outcomes of World Wars I and II, and by the regimes which waged those wars, for the purposes of building roads and alliances.
     What this means is that, due to the inordinate amount of power which has been wielded by nations like Germany, Britain, France, and (later) the United States over the last century, most regimes in the Middle East cannot survive (and have not survived) without either Western complicity, or else the West simply leaving these countries alone and not trying to cause the regimes governing them to collapse.
     We should not underestimate the degree of Israeli meddling in American politics, but we should also not underestimate the degree of Western meddling (meaning American and European meddling) in affairs of countries all over the Middle East (Israel included).
     Unfortunately, it looks like the United States is not going to admit it was wrong (nor admit that it has been lying profusely) about Iran; and it looks like America is not going to switch from the Saudis to the Iranians being America's best friend in the Middle East. And that is to the disappointment of the progressives and “the Squad”, but it will hurt all of us (Republicans included) in the long run, to not consider that policy.
     Whatever the importance of the history of geopolitics in the region, it seems that these days, the decimation of the nation of Iraq (in terms of its political and strategic importance, and the independence of its military power) has been effective in creating, for the benefit of the United States, an open potential front line for an upcoming war between Saudi Arabia and Iran (much in the same manner in which Poland became a front line in the war between Germany and the Soviet Union).

7. The Israeli Role in September 11th, 2001

     The facts that most of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudi nationals (not Iranians), and the fact that five admitted Israeli M.O.S.S.A.D. agents were arrested by Officer Scott deCarlo on 9/11 in New Jersey (with maps of New York with routes highlighted, socks full of money, and box cutters), ought to implicate not Iran, but the Israelis and Saudis in carrying out 9/11 (or at least conducting surveillance on that day).
     The fact that the British, Russian, Italian, and Israeli governments – as well as Condoleezza Rice - all warned the Bush Administration about chatter that there could be an imminent attack (and possibly by Osama bin Laden), indicates likely Israeli foreknowledge of 9/11 too. Among the set of countries who warned the U.S. about 9/11 – the U.K., Russia, Italy, and Israeli – it is possible that one or more of those countries could have been doing it to taunt the United States. I suspect that Israel and the U.K. were those countries.
     The fact that the “Dancing Israelis” admitted to having prior knowledge of the attacks, in admitting to filming them in order to “document the event”. The full quote - from an interview with Oded Ellner on an Israeli TV show - read "...the fact of the matter is, we are coming from a country that experiences terror daily. Our purpose was to document the event." This quote is an obvious indication that these men did have foreknowledge of the attacks, despite police and media claims to the contrary.
     The “Dancing Israelis” included Dominik Otto Suter (the ringleader), Roy Barak, and Motti Butbul. Additionally, the five men arrested by Officer Scott deCarlo on September 11th, 2001: Paul and Sivan Kurzberg, Oded Ellner, Omer Marmari, and Yaron Shmuel. The F.B.I. believed that two of the men were M.O.S.S.A.D. agents (agents of the Israeli equivalent of the American C.I.A.), and that the other three were volunteers whom were assisting with surveillance. They were all ostensibly employees of “Urban Moving Systems Incorporated”. That company name  conveniently contains the letters M-O-S-S-A-D in order.
     The fact that those “Dancing Israelis” were wearing Arab dress earlier on the day they were arrested, suggests that they might have intended to portray Arabs as approving towards the destruction of the World Trade Center (in case they were caught cheering while watching the World Trade Center towers fall). The fact that one of the men said “We're not your problem; the Palestinians are your problem” when arrested by Officer DeCarlo, suggests the same.
     I believe, as Webster Tarpley has stated, that the most likely culprits of 9/11 were the Saudi government, and the intelligence apparati of Israel (M.O.S.S.A.D.), the United Kingdom (MI-6), Pakistan, and the United States itself (the C.I.A.). Tarpley and I believe that M.O.S.S.A.D. agents, probably disguised as Arabs, infiltrated predominantly Saudi al-Qaeda cells, and agents-provocateured them into doing 9/11. The fact that the U.K., Russia, Italy, Condoleezza Rice, and Israel, warned America about a potential attack, proves that the Israelis at least knew about the attack, and the "Dancing Israelis'" actions make that possibility even more realistic.
     The facts that the alleged “first victim of 9/11”, Daniel M. Lewin, was both a billionaire and a former M.O.S.S.A.D. counterterrorism agent - and the fact that some of the plane wreckage from 9/11 sits in an Israeli El-Al airport hangar - suggest that Israeli involvement in 9/11 goes even deeper, and potentially even amounts to a cover-up.

     Other indications of Israeli involvement in 9/11 include a four-part, 20-minute report by Carl Cameron, which Fox News aired in late 2001. Cameron reported that at least sixty Israelis had been arrested or detained since 9/11, and that Israel had likely been spying on the United States. Information about those Israelis arrested was reportedly "classified" by the government. Israelis in Florida were found to have posed as art students, and as salesmen of children's toys in mall kiosks. If the "Dancing Israelis" conspiracy theory is true, then we can say that Israeli spies were also hiding out as employees of moving companies (or at least one company).
     [Note regarding the spying by Israeli fake "movers" and fake "artists":
     It is worth mentioning here that over the last few years, there have been rumors on the internet that child traffickers may be using "art shipment" as a way to get away with what they do. Supposedly, they manage to evade duties and/or inspections, by describing anything and everything as "art". Given the newfound popularity of describing any horrifying or bizarre thing as "art" - even blood magick and human bodily fluids used for painting, and bizarre and almost Satanic interpretive dance and musical performances by the likes of Madonna and Katy Perry - it seems that the radical libertinistic Democrats in America are going to turn a blind eye to it, and passively allow child sex trafficking "artists" to get away with what they do.
     Perhaps some police department in the United States ought to decide whether to open an investigation into whether any foreign artists (Israeli or otherwise) might be trafficking human beings in crates and parcels disguised as either containers of "art" or "art materials", or else "moving equipment". Maybe Marina Abramovic - and the favorite artists of James Alefantis, and John and Tony Podesta - ought to be the first to be investigated. And the federal government should re-examine and evaluate trade laws about importing art from abroad (and "art" that is a "broad"). And we ought to ask ourselves why boxcutters were legal to carry on airplanes on 9/11, while the Dancing Israelis had boxcutters when arrested posing as movers. Just a couple of suggestions, what the Hell do I know.]

     Finally, here are two more pieces of evidence which suggest that the Israelis might have been involved in 9/11, or at least has been spying on the United States since 9/11. First: The Bob Ney / Jack Abramoff / Foxcom scandal.
     A few years after 9/11, Ohio Congressman Robert "Bob" Ney - the same man who started the hysterical, Francophobic "Freedom Fries" controversy - was revealed to have helped approve a license for an Israeli telecommunications firm called Foxcom Wireless. Later, in January 2007, Ney was sentenced to 30 months in prison for his role in the influence-peddling scandal which centered on Jack Abramoff, a Jewish-American lobbyist and businessman. Foxcom Wireless, coincidentally, paid Abramoff $280,000 for lobbying. Some researchers into Ney's affairs have even asked whether Foxcom may have had an intention of spying on Congress itself, through providing it with wireless internet and "security".
     Second: The revelations of the 2002 Haaretz article "Up in Smoke". In that article, Sara Leibovich-Dar explains that the owner of the World Trade Center, Jewish-American billionaire Larry Silverstein, doubled his insurance money on the destruction of his property by successfully claiming that the attacks were separate incidents. Silverstein has been a donor to Hillary Clinton, and has friendships and/or business dealings with four different former Israeli heads of state.
     One of those heads of state is Ehud Barak, who served as the tenth Prime Minister of Israel, from 1999 to 2001. Barak is rumored to have founded the startup Reporty/Carbyne, in which Jeffrey Epstein invested at least a million dollars. If Barak didn't found the company (which was founded in 2014), then he has at least been a major investor, and serves as its Chairman of the Board. In July and August 2019, The Daily Beast reported that Barak admitted to having visited Epstein's island, but to have never met any girls. Barak told The Daily Beast, "I never attended a party with him", continuing, "I never met Epstein in the company of women or young girls."
     Ehud Barak, as a reminder, prematurely blamed Osama bin Laden for the 9/11 attacks, live on television the same day the attacks happened. Barak is also rumored to have introduced Harvey Weinstein to the representatives of the formerly M.O.S.S.A.D.-affiliated private intelligence agency Black Cube, which is significant because M.O.S.S.A.D. agents may have harassed Weinstein's rape victims in order to keep them quiet about Weinstein's abuses.
     We might never be able to prove for sure what the people at Foxcom intended to do with their technology. But enough about that. Why am I talking about the Israeli role in 9/11, and Israeli history and Middle East foreign policy, when I'm supposed to be talking about Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein, and what 9/11 has to do with Epstein and Alan Dershowitz? Where could this be going?
     Have you ever heard of a German financial services company called Deutsche Bank?

8. Epstein's Hiring of Alan Dershowitz, and Their Other Associations, Suggest a Cover-Up (including Jean-Luc Brunel and Mark Epstein)

     Some have suggested that Epstein's death was faked; while others suggest foul play and believe that he was murdered. One reason people suspect this, is that Epstein's his cell wasn't undergoing video monitoring, while the hallway next to his cell was. On August 28th, Reuters reported that two cameras nearby, broke or malfunctioned. It's not surprising that there should be so many conflicting reports about Epstein's death, given the high number of people who may have had a reason to prevent him from talking.
     Some researchers have suggested that Epstein's death was faked, that his ears and nose looked different when he was being wheeled in front of news cameras on a gurney. Still, it's possible that it was really Epstein, and that Epstein's nose could have been swollen from the (attack? suicide attempt?) which he suffered not long before his death. Or swelling of liquid could have set in after death. Who knows? Some even think that either Epstein's body was replaced with the body of CNN host Anthony Bourdain (who died in June 2018), or that the pictures of Epstein on a gurney were actually of Bourdain.
      But it's possible that Epstein is actually alive; why would the Trump Administration and the Israeli government allow someone to hurt him?
     Maybe there's still a chance for justice after all; maybe Epstein is hiding out in Israel. Additionally, in mid-August, an anonymous person called-in a police tip, claiming to have seen Ghislaine Maxwell reading a book about C.I.A. operatives at an In-and-Out Burger in Los Angeles, California. That last bit seems highly suspect, but who knows what is real anymore? I'll leave my readers to investigate that claim for themselves.
     Whatever the case with Epstein and Maxwell, we're still not done with Dershowitz.

     Even if there's no foul play here, and Dershowitz and Epstein have not been working for Israel as spies, then this is still a very dark and disturbing story.
     Take, for instance, the matter of why Dershowitz would agree to take such a case like Epstein's, especially given the accusations against himself. Additionally, whether taking Epstein's case the third time was the morally right (or a morally acceptable) thing to do, when Epstein was already a known child rapist and child trafficker.
     Although there is so much evidence that Epstein's sex trafficking syndicate extends very far, whether Dershowitz did the honorable thing by taking the case should remain up to the public. However, it should not be ignored, that numerous figures in the media have downplayed the severity of Epstein's crimes, as well as his status and success; by referring to Epstein as a “millionaire” rather than a billionaire, by referring to him as a “suspected molester of underage women” rather than a “child sex trafficker”. Many mainstream media have failed to use the term "convicted" enough in their descriptions of Epstein. Epstein plea-bargained, and admitted to soliciting an underage girl for prostitution, so it would not be a stretch to call Epstein a "convicted pedophile", "convicted child sex criminal", etc..
     I would also criticize certain news sources which have reported that between five and seven women have filed charged against Epstein, at a time when more than a dozen had already done so (although that number now stands at over 23).

     The news of Alan Dershowitz's having been hired by Jeffrey Epstein, does not come without fresh accusations against, and controversies about, Dershowitz himself.
     In mid-July 2019, Dershowitz appeared on The View, and admitted to knowing Epstein. He also claimed to have never had sex with any underage girls while around him, contrary to the claims of Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre (pronounced DZHOO-fray; she was named Virginia Roberts when she knew Epstein). Giuffre claims that she was instructed to have sex with Dershowitz when she was 16 years old. Dershowitz has claimed to have "proved" that Giuffre is lying.
     But not only was Dershowitz named as a co-defendant along with Epstein in Giuffre's case, he wrote an op-ed for the Los Angeles Times in 1997 which questioned the notion of statutory rape laws. The title of that article was "Statutory Rape is an Outdated Concept". Dershowitz's op-ed myopically defended lowering the age of consent to 15, based on the fact that teenagers have consensual sex with each other. Dershowitz also suggested that if one argued that a 16-year-old girl could consent to have an abortion, then it wouldn't make sense to also argue that the same girl could not consent to sex at the same age. Of course, underage girls do, and can, get pregnant through rape; and that arguably renders Dershowitz's argument moot because the fact that a girl has gotten pregnant does not necessarily prove that she consented to get pregnant or consented to sex. But that's beside the point.
     The fact that Dershowitz doubled-down on his views on this issue when The New Yorker brought it up in late July 2019 - coupled with his statements on The View - show that even if he didn't sexually abuse Virginia Giuffre as a teen, he is doing as much as possible to insist upon his innocence, as well as make statements which could easily be construed to normalize or excuse having sex with teenage girls, that could help him later on in his case.
     According to a January 2015 article published in The Electronic Intifada, this is not the only example of Dershowitz defending people who have sex with minors. In 2002, he wrote a column for Penthouse saying that people should not be prosecuted for watching child pornography, and that watching child pornography doesn't make someone a bad person. In 2005, he argued for leniency in a statutory rape case on the basis of the closeness in age. In 2010, he suggested that some children alleging sexual abuse by Catholic priests might be lying. Dershowitz also wrote an article for the Gainesville Sun, in which he argued that prostitutes should be arrested, but johns shouldn't. Gilad Atzmon reported that Dershowitz said "Feeling bad is a part of my job."
     On August 23rd, 2019, Dershowitz publicly denied Virginia Giuffre's claims that she was instructed to have sex with him at the age of 16. Giuffre claimed in 2015 that Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell directed her to have sex with Dershowitz at least six times while she was still below the age of consent. Dershowitz says that Giuffre's claims are "made up" and that she is a "prostitute" who "made her own decisions in life" and had a "bad mother". Another one of Dershowitz's accusers is named Sarah Ransome, who accused Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell of trafficking her for sex from 2006 to 2007.
     In an interview on July 18th, 2019, Dershowitz defended himself against the same claims, saying that he had had a "perfect sex life", with only one person, his wife. While defending himself against these charges, Dershowitz has admitted to receiving a massage from “an old, old Russian” woman while in contact with Epstein. He also insisted that he “never took his underwear off” during that encounter, so therefore he couldn't have had sex and couldn't have cheated on his wife.

     In the discussion of Dershowitz's "Russian woman", it is worth noting that a document has been released, addressed to Jeffrey Epstein, and signed by a man named "Jean-Luc". The document reads "He has a teacher for you to teach you how to speak Russian. She is 2x8 years old not blonde. Lessons are free and you can have 1st today if you call". It's possible that the "2x8 years old" phrase is a reference to, not a sixteen-year-old, but two eight-year-old girls.
     Jean-Luc was revealed to be Jean-Luc Brunel, reportedly a "head honcho" and model scout in the modeling industry, as well as a former business partner of Epstein's. Jean-Luc Brunel's company was called MC2, as in "MC squared". In France in April 2019, Brunel was accused of procuring children for Epstein in court documents. Some also suspect Brunel of having orgies with 12-year-old girls. Some suspect Brunel of procuring three 12-year-old French girls for Epstein. According to the Daily Mail, Virginia Giuffre stated that Epstein bragged about his escapades, noting that the girls' parents were desperate enough for money to put their daughters on a plane.
     In the first few days of September 2019, The Washington Examiner and The New York Post - among others - reported that Brunel had "disappeared without a trace".

     The reports about Brunel, and other people, having been Epstein's clients and business partners, is puzzling, given that so many sources have been telling us that Epstein's "only business partner" was billionaire Leslie Wexner. Leslie Wexner is the C.E.O. of L Brands, which owns the Limited and Victoria's Secret.
     Supposedly Wexner, being a billionaire, has so much money, that Epstein only needed one major investor. Epstein was reported to have said about his strategy for managing money for billionaires, "I was the only person crazy enough, or arrogant enough, or misplaced enough, to make my limit a billion dollars or more". According to Epstein, his riches accumulated through fees from money management, and through playing the currency markets.
     Leslie H. Wexner's wealth is currently estimated at $4.3 billion. He is so wealthy that it was reported in 2011 that he gave Jeffrey Epstein a mansion in New York City for free. Also, the Lolita Express - Epstein's Boeing 727 - was supposedly a "hand-me-down" from Wexner. On July 11th, 2019, CNBC reported that Epstein bankrolled one of Wexner's first non-profit ventures, with $40 million in stock and other assets, in order to try to stay in Wexner's good graces. This occurred a few months before Epstein was sentenced to jail for soliciting an underage prostitute in 2008.
     Some researchers have suggested that Epstein's "clients" and other "former business partners" were minor investors, who trusted Epstein enough to hand over their money, which he would, more or less, move from account to account, to make it look like financial activity was going on. For all Epstein's investors knew, Epstein might have been using their money to finance operations to traffic children for sex, or weapons or drugs for money, or maybe even something worse.
     It seems that modeling and beauty pageants are some of the subterfuges which Epstein (and probably Trump too) uses to cover up his sex trafficking of underage girls. Maybe marketing women's clothing to women and girls is another cover, and a convenient way to recruit models.

     The possibility that modeling and clothing are covers for recruiting women for sex trafficking, is especially clear, given the fact that Jeffrey Epstein's first accuser Alicia Arden (a model) says Epstein posed as a Victoria's Secret recruiter, and also given the fact that Epstein's brother Mark formed his own modeling agency, Saint Model and Talent, in 2005. Mark Epstein also owns a real estate company called Ossa Properties, which is run by a former employee of J. Epstein & Co., which once managed Leslie Wexner's assets.
     Strangely, Mark Epstein serves as the vice chairman of the non-profit venture the Humpty Dumpty Institute. At a private dinner for one of the organization's conferences, United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power gave a keynote speech. Epstein's work with Humpty Dumpty has reportedly put him in contact with high-level Democratic politicians such as Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Maxine Waters, and Adam Schiff. Perhaps not coincidentally, Adam Schiff has served as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee since earlier in 2019, investigating possible collusion between Trump and Russia.

     To deal with Wexner himself directly: It's also worth noting that Victoria's Secret - part of the L Brands conglomerate which Wexner owns - used to take advantage of prison inmates to make women's undergarments as cheaply as possible. Whether the Victoria's Secret's prison labor scandal has anything to do with Epstein's sex trafficking appears questionable, especially considering that Wexner cut ties with Epstein following his sentencing in 2008 (or at least claimed to have done so). However, Wexner's The Limited Inc. imported clothing from Hong Kong through the Rickenbacker International Airport in Columbus, Ohio. That same airport was allegedly used as a transport hub for drug cargo in the Iran-Contra Affair. It also housed the headquarters of Southern Air Transport.
     Southern Air Transport was an airline that was outed as a C.I.A. front company. Some researchers say Southern Air Transport has assisted in drug smuggling since the Vietnam Era, and operated the C-123 Globemaster cargo plane that was shot down in Nicaragua. This information comes from Garry Bello's article "Columbus is where the torture taxi and lolita express meet", and Bob Fitrakis's 2003 article for Free Press, entitled "Wexner War".
     Another tie between Epstein and fashion exists; a photo was published on the internet in 2006 which showed Bill Clinton meeting Rachel Chandler, apparently still a teenager at that point, on a plane whose interior resembled that of a plane owned by Clinton associate Frank Giustra (who sold UrAsia to Uranium One before UrAsia was sold to Russian state corporation Rosatom). Chandler co-casts the models at Midland Agency with Walter Pearce.

     Yet another tie between Leslie Wexner and Epstein, consists in the fact that Epstein moved $46 million into the YLK Charitable Fund, a fund started in 2007 which lists an Ohio address for the New Albany Co., a property firm owned by Wexner. The fact that that charity is based in Ohio is interesting, given the following several facts: 1) that Ohio State University (to which Epstein also donated millions) has a wing named after Leslie Wexner; 2) that Congressman Robert Ney (who helped secure a multimillion-dollar telecom license for Jack Abramoff -connected Israeli firm Foxcom) represented the 20th and 18th districts of Ohio; and 3) that Ohio is one of the two states (along with New Mexico) which appears to have been a major nuclear materials trafficking hub in the Iran-Contra affair. Incidentally, if M.O.S.S.A.D. agent Danny Lewin successfully thwarted the hijacking of Flight 11 on September 11th, 2001, then the flight may have landed secretly in Ohio.
     Given the recent impact of the opioid crisis upon Ohio, for all we know, Ohio could still be a major hub for the trafficking of sex and drugs, in addition to nuclear materials. And given Robert Ney's actions, recent revelations about Israeli spying around the White House, and the possibility that Jim McGreevey sexual harassment victim Golan Cipel may have been a M.O.S.S.A.D. agent, Israeli spies could frankly be anywhere.

     Two more important facts about Dershowitz, before we turn our attention to Epstein's finances:
     First: Alan Dershowitz defended Roman Polanski, the Polish-French and Jewish film director who was charged with drugging and raping Samantha Jane Gailey when she was 13 years old in 1977. Polanski pleaded guilty to statutory rape, and then fled to France. French laws prohibit the extradition of its citizens to other countries for the purposes of prosecution.
     Second: Dershowitz also defended Jonathan Pollard, the Jewish-American former intelligence analyst who in 1985 pleaded guilty to spying for Israel and passing-on classified U.S. intelligence to Israel, and served the next 30 years in prison for espionage. Dershowitz also defended an Israeli child molester Baruch Lebovits.

     And now, on to the issues of what Epstein's hiring of Alan Dershowitz has to do with 9/11, and of the role of Deutsche Bank in the finances of Jeffrey Epstein and Donald Trump.

8. Epstein's Hiring of Alan Dershowitz, and Their Other Associations, Suggest a Cover-Up (including Jean-Luc Brunel and Mark Epstein, and More on Leslie Wexner

     What the “Dancing Israeli” M.O.S.S.A.D. agents have to do with Jeffrey Epstein, lies in the fact that Jeffrey Epstein and the Dancing Israelis hired the same lawyer: Alan Dershowitz.
     The five men arrested by Scott deCarlo on 9/11 were originally held in Brooklyn for visa violations. Following their arrest, and detention for 71 days, the “Dancing Israelis” sued the U.S. government, but lost.
     The supposed report from ABC News appears gone from the internet these days, but numerous internet message boards discuss an ABC 20/20 report, from a few years after 9/11, stating that Alan Dershowitz had stepped in as a negotiator to broker a deal that returned those suspected M.O.S.S.A.D. agents and volunteers home to Israel. Dershowitz supposedly helped them plead to minor charges and return to Israel. On June 21st, 2002, ABC News reported that “high-level negotiations" were underway "between Israeli and US government officials".
     The Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz reported that by the end of October 2001, Richard Armitage (then Deputy Secretary of State under George W. Bush and Colin Powell) was lobbying heavily for the release of the "Urban Moving Systems" employees. In addition to Armitage, two "prominent New York congressmen" whom were not named, were lobbying for their release as well.

     After Epstein was charged in Florida in 2006, Dershowitz helped negotiate a deal with the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida. At the time, that position was filled by Alexander Acosta, who served as Donald Trump's Secretary of Labor until his resignation in summer 2019.
     The fact that Dershowitz took Epstein's case – not once, but at least three times - is shameful enough. But moreover, Dershowitz has been publicly and unabashedly proud of having helped “people” (probably meaning O.J. Simpson) get off for murder, and has bragged about arguing in defense of letting Nazis march. He has also defended Mike Tyson, Jim Bakker, and Patty Hearst. The fact that Dershowitz took the "Dancing Israelis" case, just seems like the "icing on the cake" in a recipe for a psychopathic lawyer with no morality.
     Granted, all people deserve a good defense, and peaceful people have freedom of speech. And Dershowitz once defended Julian Assange, whose Wikileaks site leaked classified information about illegal spying by the United States government. But defense attorneys can decline to take cases, and let someone else do it. Additionally, Dershowitz has spent much of his career champing at the bit to help defend reprehensible people.
     Only the most consistent civil libertarians would consider it honorable and respectable that Dershowitz has defended racists and murderers. And maybe it is, if you consider that it is an attorney's job to represent his client to the best of his ability; especially if the accused had been defrauded or manipulated by the prosecution during the legal process. But attorneys are always free to quit, even if it means sacrificing a little bit of career potential in the process, if they don't want it on their conscience that a guilty person went free.
     Whether something is the right thing to do, should never boil down to “how much money did you get for it”, nor down to “I was just doing my job to the best of my ability”. The Nazis were “just doing their jobs”, and the I.C.E. agents who are funneling immigrants into dangerous areas near the border instead of points of entry where they can declare asylum, and telling people to drink out of toilet bowls, are using that same excuse. Whether in a position of authority or not, a person has the freedom – and responsibility – to speak out and refuse to obey a command, if ordered to do something which grossly violated his conscience.
     Dershowitz could have quit if he felt he was defending guilty people, and left that defense up to an attorney who believes in his clients. Hillary Clinton could have done the same thing when asked to defend Thomas Alfred Taylor, one of the men accused and later convicted of brutally raping Kathy Shelton when she was 12 years old.

9. Deutsche Bank's Ties to Epstein, 9/11, and Trump (including Bear Stearns)

     It seems that Deutsche Bank, Epstein, and Trump each have their own ties to the cover-up of the attacks of September 11th, 2001. It would be impossible to fully understand the implications of Epstein's ties to Israel, without discussing the fact that Deutsche Bank has ties to Jeffrey Epstein, the World Trade Center properties, and the finances of Donald Trump.
     Deutsche Bank A.G. is a multinational investment bank and financial services company based in Frankfurt, Germany. In 2018, the bank was reportedly the 15th wealthiest bank in the world. Deutsche Bank suffered losses due to its exposure in the U.S. subprime mortgage crisis of 2008, which began with the collapse of Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers.

     After December 2017, Robert Mueller of the F.B.I. reportedly investigated Deutsche Bank for its possible role in a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russian actors to elect Trump president. On April 29th, Donald Trump and his children and business sued Deutsche Bank (in addition to Capital One) in order to prevent them from turning Trump financial records over to congressional committees. That lawsuit was initially rejected, but the Trumps were allowed to pursue "an expedited appeal" through the courts.
     In May 2019, The New York Times reported that "entities controlled by" Trump and Jared Kushner were under suspicion of financial crimes for "moving money from Kushner companies to Russian individuals", after Deutsche Bank had previously been involved in a Russian money laundering scheme which the New York Times reported as having been detected by Deutsche Bank staff. 
     Deutsche Bank is reportedly "widely recognized" as Trump's biggest lender, holding more than $360 million in outstanding loans to Trump in the months prior to his election. In late August 2019, Deutsche Bank's lawyers told the Federal Court of Appeals that "the Bank has in its possession tax returns... responsive to the subpoenas for", followed by several redacted words (presumably where Trump's name once appeared). Supposedly, "Russian billionaires close to Vladimir Putin" co-signed on Deutsche Bank's loan to Trump. In late August 2019, M.S.N.B.C.'s Lawrence o'Donnell reported that on his show, but subsequently retracted it and apologized.

     Epstein's relationship with 9/11 comes from the fact that he hired Alan Dershowitz to defend him (at least three times; twice for sexual assault, and the other regarding Epstein's case which involved the financial house Bear Stearns). Two of those times came after Dershowitz reportedly helped negotiate the deal that returned the Dancing Israelis to their home country, and one came after Epstein was convicted for soliciting an underage prostitute.
      Donald Trump insisted that Muslims were seen dancing and celebrating the 9/11 attacks, when his memories are probably of either stock-footage "news" clips which depicted Muslims cheering (probably about other events), when the "Dancing Israelis" were seen celebrating 9/11 disguised as Muslims. It is interesting to note that, while Trump may have been "covering" for the Dancing Israelis without intending to, Dershowitz covered for the Dancing Israelis in a much more direct fashion.
    The fact that Epstein hired Dershowitz as his attorney in 2008 - in a financial case involving Bear Stearns, the first domino in the 2007-09 financial collapse, no less - and also the fact that Epstein hired Dershowitz again in 2019, should not only tip us off to the possibility that Dershowitz is an amoral attorney who helps dangerous criminals walk free, but also that he may be engaging in conspiracy and collusion to keep his most influential and high-profile clients safe from culpability for financial crimes (which, conveniently, helps those clients afford to hire Dershowitz).

     Deutsche Bank has connections to Jeffrey Epstein, in addition to Trump.
     In May 2019, it was reported that Jeffrey Epstein had funneled millions of dollars through Deutsche Bank, and that Epstein paid at least $30 million to Deutsche Bank. On July 24th, 2019, RussiaToday (RT) reported that $30 million estimate was made because Epstein's money was reportedly in the "ultra-high net-worth division" of the bank which "usually requires about $30 million". Deutsche Bank also reportedly "loaned Epstein money and currencies", and helped him with his finances for six years (from 2013 to 2019). RT also reported that JPMorgan cut ties with Epstein after discovering his sex scandals.
     As in the case with Trump's finances, concerns about Epstein were raised by Deutsche Bank employees themselves. The New York Times reported that Deutsche Bank found "suspicious transactions in which Epstein moved money out of the United States". Reportedly, "compliance officers" at Deutsche Bank, whom were concerned about Epstein's reputation, were overruled by managers.

     Deutsche Bank's relationship to 9/11 - through its ownership of a building which was formerly situated right next to the World Trade Center towers - should also be explored.
     In February 2013, freelance journalist Lars Schall published an article entitled "Re: Deutsche Bank Alex Brown and 9/11 Insider Trading", in which he discussed Alex Brown, a subsidiary of Deutsche Bank. In that article, Schall explains that Mohammed Atta and many of the other alleged 9/11 hijackers "handled their banking transactions" at Deutsche Bank, and that Alex Brown "traded massive put options on United Airlines Company UAL". Two of the planes hijacked on 9/11 were United Airlines flights, while the other two were American Airlines flights.
     Between 2007 and 2011, the Deutsche Bank building near the World Trade Center was demolished; due to damage from the 9/11 attacks. In June 2007, then governor Eliot Spitzer and then mayor Michael Bloomberg "announced that JPMorgan Chase had won the bid to buy and build the new tower" which would replace the Deutsche Bank Building. However, JPMorgan Chase subsequently acquired Bear Stearns (in March 2008), and now intends to move into Bear Stearns' old headquarters.
     Epstein worked for Bear Stearns from 1976 to the early 1980s, first as an assistant and a floor trader, and later as an options trader, and eventually as a tax adviser to Edgar Bronfman (president of Seagram's liquor). Epstein initially got the job through an offer from Alan "Ace" Greenberg, Bear Stearns's chief executive, whose children attended Dalton School in Manhattan while Epstein taught there. Curiously, Greenberg's son and daughter both attended Dalton, which is at odds with the little-disputed reported fact about Dalton that it was supposedly an all-girls' school.
NYMag reported that Jimmy Cayne, former C.E.O. of Bear Stearns, said of Epstein in 2002, “He is a very smart guy and has become a very important client for us as well.”
     In 2011, Vanity Fair reported that Jimmy Cayne, former C.E.O. of Bear Stearns, said of Epstein that he left the company “of his own volition”, adding, “It was never suggested that he leave by any member of management, and management never looked into any improprieties by him. Jeffrey said specifically, 'I don't want to work for anybody else. I want to work for myself.'” Vicky Ward, the author of that article, noted that Epstein told the opposite to the S.E.C. (Securities and Exchange Commission) in 1981, and again to lawyers in a different case in 1989.
     Epstein remained a client of Bear Stearns until it collapsed in 2008.

     The ties between Deutsche Bank and Deutsche Borse should also prompt some questions about the ties between German banks and the destruction of the World Trade Center.
     The Frankfurt Stock Exchange is a subsidiary of Deutsche Borse AG, a German "marketplace organizer" founded in 1992. Deutsche Borse has been described as the "operator" of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. Deutsche Bank is apparently unaffiliated with Deutsche Borse, but on the other hand, Deutsche Bank is one of the "leading listed companies" whose shares are traded on Deutsche Borse's Frankfurt Stock Exchange. Additionally, Deutsche Bank and Deutsche Borse were both caught up in the "Cum-Ex Files" tax fraud scandal.
     But that's not all; Deutsche Borse controls not only the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, but also the New York Stock Exchange (N.Y.S.E.). In 2011, it was announced that shareholders of Deutsche Borse would control 60% of the stock of the new company created by the merger. The New York Stock Exchange is situated just a half-mile away from the World Trade Center site. Interestingly, the nearby Federal Reserve Bank of New York was just 2 1/2 blocks away from the World Trade Center, and was damaged in the attacks (although it was not reported).
     Some 9/11 researchers have suggested that the pre-9/11 disappearance of perhaps a hundred million dollars in gold from the basement of the World Trade Center, was done in order to pay back debts owned by Germany, possibly with the help of JPMorgan Chase, so that Germany could "repatriate its gold" which it was storing at the Federal Reserve and/or the World Trade Center.
     The German central bank (Bundesbank) is the German financial entity which would have the most incentive to see that German gold stored in the United States returns to Germany. But even if Deutsche Bank and Deutsche Borse didn't receive any of this gold directly, they are still some of Germany's most prominent financial institutions, so they would still benefit from the returning of gold to Germany, through the stabilization of Germany's finances which the return of such gold would help ensure.
     It should also be noted that Germany has an incentive to recover as much of its gold from the U.S. as possible; Germany is currently the #2 country in the world in terms of gold reserves, after America which is #1.

     Israel's possible interests in destroying the World Trade Center should also be explored here, in addition to Germany's.
     Deutsche Bank's ties to the 9/11 cover-up lie in the fact that "many" of the 9/11 hijackers opened accounts with the bank, and also in the fact that since 2001, Deutsche Bank and JPMorgan Chase have stood to profit from the rebuilding of the World Trade Center and sites nearby which were damaged on 9/11. Moreover, Larry Silverstein's desire to profit from the destruction of the W.T.C. (through insurance fraud), Silverstein's relationship with Epstein business partner and former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, and JPMorgan Chase's financial ties to Epstein, should all be cause for concern in all this as well.
     One cannot help but wonder from all this, whether Silverstein, Barak, Epstein, the Israeli M.O.S.S.A.D., Dershowitz, the 9/11 hijackers, the Dancing Israelis, Deutsche Bank, and JPMorgan Chase - and maybe even Spitzer, Bloomberg, the Port Authority of New York, and others - could have begun planning these schemes (the destruction and subsequent rebuilding of the World Trade Center, the disappearance of German gold, the subprime mortgage crisis, and Epstein's human smuggling ring) since twenty years ago or more.


11. New Mexico, Nuclear Weapons, Bill and Donald Barr, Iran-Contra (Again), "Clone Farms", and Nazis

     Now, knowing all that about 9/11, U.S.-Middle East foreign policy, Epstein's relationship to Dershowitz, and both those men's relationship to Israel (and to Israeli, Jewish-American, and Gentile American criminals), would you be shocked if it came out that Jeffrey Epstein sex-trafficked minors, not only to rape them, but also to film pedophile politicians having sex with them, so that he could use that footage for blackmail? And would you be surprised if it came out that the beneficiary of that blackmail turned out to be Israel?
     It's called “sexual blackmail” and “honeypot schemes”, and governments do it all the time. How else do you think the truth about Joe Biden's groping of women and girls stayed a secret for so long? Now deceased F.B.I. agent Ted Gunderson has been hinting at "household names" in government being involved in child sexual abuse since the early 1990s. Interestingly enough, Gunderson once claimed that information specific to that had been sealed in the trunk of a car, hidden somewhere in New Mexico. Perhaps Gunderson was trying to hint at New Mexico with this comment, by alluding to people like Bill Richardson, and to places like the Zorro Ranch (which Epstein later owned). 
     But we'll get to New Mexico soon enough;

     Even if there is no truth whatsoever to the “sexual blackmail to benefit Israel” theory about Jeffrey Epstein's sex trafficking network, then Epstein's past proven behavior should remain a cause for concern. As I explained, he was an accused child trafficker who admitted to "minor crimes" ("underage" prostitution) and took a plea deal. He was not just a “john” of some “prostitutes” who “happened to be underage”; he paid teenage girls to let him rape them, and he paid Ghislaine Maxwell to train the girls to please rich and powerful men. Epstein's and Maxwell's abuse was routine, intentional, and affected at least three dozen women and girls, if not hundreds or even thousands more.
     But if there is any truth to the possibility of sexual blackmail for Israel, then the facts point to something very dark: the possibility that not only are young adults in America being turned into soldiers chiefly to promote pro-Israeli (as well as anti-Muslim) causes and interests; but also that kids in several countries are being turned into sex slaves (for Epstein and his associates) for the very same reasons.
     Those reasons being: to be sold out to politicians and businessmen - and even Epstein's own friends and business partners - for sex. Those men would then be photographed or videotaped in sexual situations with minors, and then blackmailed and extorted into paying Epstein off to keep his mouth shut about the video or photo evidence implicating them in sex crimes with children. This leverage would can be used to pressure politicians into supporting the expansion of Israel's borders, and the continued diplomatic support, and foreign aid, for that country.
     Reportedly, thousands of pictures were found in Epstein's possession – both physical and digital – and the concern is not “merely” that they depict children in sexual situations, or Epstein in sexual situations with children; but that they depict high-profile political figures and celebrities of all kinds in sexual situations with children. That is the worst possible thing in which Jeffrey Epstein might have been involved.

     That is, unless the allegations about his intent to create a "baby ranch" which he supposedly planned to use as a "clone farm". 
     Not only are there rumors of sexual blackmail for Israel, and spying on and murder of reporters, but also, reports have come out which allege that Epstein was trying to start some sort of “clone farm” or "baby ranch", wherein he could impregnate twenty women at a time at his ranch in New Mexico. Epstein reportedly wanted to "spread his DNA" and even "have his penis frozen and brought back in the future". The New York Times reported that Epstein had a vision of "seeding the human race with his DNA".
     Epstein's accuser Virginia Giuffre stated that she was forced to have sex with a cognitive scientist and artificial intelligence researcher named Marvin Minsky. Minsky was a friend of Epstein's, and visited Epstein's islands in 2001 and 2012. Minsky reportedly suggested to Michael Crichton (later the author of Jurassic Park) that dinosaurs could be brought back through cloning, which has led researchers to allege that Epstein may have attempted to recruit Minsky in order to help Epstein with his "clone farm" project.
     At some point in all this, it behooves us to ask ourselves whether anything could possibly be any more racist than making dozens of clones of yourself; flooding the gene pool with as many copies of yourself as possible. It's like something out of the history of Genghis Khan, or a science fiction or fantasy novel.
     Epstein's "baby ranch" (if it is real) also seems odd, because it smacks of eugenics. That's strange because Epstein was Jewish, while during the Holocaust, the Nazis used eugenics-based ideology and methods of medical torture against the Jews.
     This is a bit of a non-sequitur, but in my personal opinion, it's also worth noting that Walt Disney was not only an anti-Semite, he was also into cryogenics, and one of his animators alleged that Disney was a pedophile. So Epstein and Walt Disney - although one was Jewish while the other hated Jews - shared the distinctions of being incredibly wealthy and influential people whom were also sexually attracted to children and wanted to have their bodies (or at least parts of their bodies) preserved.
     "Baby ranches" and Walt Disney aside, we shall now turn back to Epstein's possible former boss Donald Barr, and his son Bill Barr's role in the coverup of the Iran-Contra Affair.

    William Pelham Barr was born in New York City in 1950, the son of Donald Barr and his wife Mary Margaret. On February 14th, 2019, after being nominated by Trump and confirmed by the Senate, William "Bill" Barr became the Attorney General of the United States. This is not Barr's first turn at the attorney general position; he served in the same position from November 1991 to January 1993, under George H.W. Bush, after previously having served as Bush's Deputy Attorney General.
     It has been reported that Donald Barr - the now deceased father of our current Attorney General William Barr - hired Epstein as a teacher at Dalton School in Manhattan. Epstein was supposedly hired at this school to teach math, by Donald Barr himself, although some dispute that claim. Dalton was founded in 1919 as the Children's University School.
     Dalton School is an elite private school; for all girls, by most reports (though not all). Dalton teaches A.P. (advanced preparation) subjects such as calculus and physics. In 1997, the New York Times reported that Gardner P. Dunnan, Barr's replacement as headmaster at Dalton, resigned in shame after it was revealed that Dunnan had had an affair with a 14-year-old girl after his wife had become sick. That fact is unrelated to Barr, but it suggests that "flings" between Dalton staff and their teenage students may not have been uncommon. Which would certainly be a sad fact for a school reportedly once known as a "university for children".
      Epstein reportedly taught at Dalton beginning in September 1974, teaching physics and mathematics. Why Epstein became a teacher is something of a mystery; considering the photographic evidence revealing that he once failed to spell his own last name correctly on a chalkboard, and the fact that he dropped out of college twice. The man would wear "Harvard" sweaters often, possibly to look smart. But however smart Epstein was, and what subject he was teaching, the fact that this job put him in close proximity to dozens of teenage girls is highly suspect. Epstein was dismissed for "poor performance" in June 1976.
     Some sources, including YouTube conspiracy theorist George Webb, have alleged that Epstein was actually teaching people to fly airplanes. It's not clear, though, whether Epstein had this knowledge about flying a plane in the first place, as reports about Epstein seem to indicate that he hired other pilots, instead of flying the Lolita Express by himself. According to USA Today, one of such pilots was named David Rodgers.
     Whether Epstein knew how to fly, and taught this knowledge, or not, it seems that George Webb suspects Epstein of teaching people to fly because he suspects Epstein and William Barr - and possibly also Donald Barr - of being spies for Israel. Webb believes that they are involved in interstate and international child trafficking, as well as trafficking of other items such as nuclear weapons, small arms, drugs, and money. Strangely, some suspect George Webb himself of being a M.O.S.S.A.D. agent, given his immense knowledge of the organization, so Webb's assertions should be taken with a grain of salt.
     Webb could very well be correct, though, to assume that Epstein and/or the Barrs are up to no good, and that they are involved in international trafficking of some kind. Even if not with Israel, then maybe with Iran. That's because, while serving as Attorney General under George Bush Sr., Bill Barr successfully advised Bush to pardon former Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger for his role in the Iran-Contra Affair. Weinberger was accused of lying to Congress, and of withholding 1,700 pages of notes about "high-level meetings". That scandal, to repeat, involved the illegal international trade of drugs and weapons, and ended in the punishment of Oliver North alone. Bush pardoned Weinberger (along with five others charged in the Iran-Contra Affair) on Christmas Eve of 1992.
     Air pilot Chip Tatum even claims to have met William Barr and Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega at a meeting about drug smuggling in Miami. George Bush Sr., Bill Clinton, and Oliver North allegedly partipated in the meeting via phone or satellite. Some researchers believe that William Barr was directly involved in drug smuggling while serving as George Bush Sr.'s attorney general, and that Barr had close ties to Southern Air Transport. An April 2019 article from Vice described Barr's role in getting Weinberger off Scot-free (that is, as free as Scots like Barr and Trump) as that of one who has orchestrated a cover-up.
     It is worth remembering, while absorbing all this, that Jeffrey Epstein's business partner Leslie Wexner imported clothing through Rickenbacker Airport in Ohio, which used to house the headquarters of Southern Air Transport, the same company that smuggled cocaine for the C.I.A. during Iran-Contra.

     Supposedly, Epstein's plane (the Lolita Express) would make flights between his home town of Palm Beach, Florida; Epstein's Zorro Ranch in New Mexico, and northern New Jersey's Teterboro Airport (near his Manhattan residence).
    On August 20th, 2019, CBS News reported that in February 2007, all the names in the flight logs of the Lolita Express (besides the names of pilot David Rodgers and his co-pilots) "dropped off the flight logs". In that report, Chris Maag stated that underage girls probably signed into the flight logs with their full names the first time they flew, but later signed in with their initials.
     Those researchers believe that Epstein's child sex trafficking ring is just the tip of the iceberg, and that international child sex trafficking is used to blackmail people for political support, in order to influence, most importantly, to where the flow of nuclear weapons is directed, as well as whom owns and controls lands which are rich in uranium. On August 15th, The New Republic published a piece enumerating many strange things about the surrounding areas of the Zorro Ranch and about New Mexico in general.
     George Webb and other researchers believe that Epstein's ownership of the Zorro Ranch in New Mexico, and the fact that Bill Richardson - former governor of New Mexico and Secretary of the Interior under Obama - was named by Virginia Giuffre (Epstein's most prominent accuser) as a co-defendant, suggest that New Mexico could be some sort of national nuclear materials trafficking hub, a distinction which it appears that the State of Ohio served in the 1980s as one of the legs of Iran Contra.

     This is a bit of speculation, but it would also make sense if New Mexico turned out to be a sex trafficking hub, in addition to a nuclear materials trafficking hub; first, because of Jeffrey Epstein's and Bill Richardson's activities there; and second, because in recent years, New Mexico (and Albuquerque in particular) been plagued with meth addiction; out-of-control crime rates; and one particularly horrific story of a young girl's drugging, rape, and murder.
     It's additionally possible that nuclear materials trafficking and sex trafficking are related, in regards to their relationships with not only the State of Ohio, but also with Jeffrey Epstein. That's because some researchers believe that Epstein not only trafficked children for sex and taught teenage girls to fly airplanes, but also that Epstein trafficked nuclear materials himself, including centrifuges - as well as UF6 gas (a uranium-based compound) - to Iran, during Iran-Contra.
     Iran-Contra had three "hubs": Ohio, Alabama, and Arkansas. It appears that Arkansas was the "drug hub", while Ohio was the "nuclear hub" in those days. It's not that the "nuclear hub" title has shifted from Ohio to New Mexico, however; New Mexico's Zorro Ranch is allegedly where Epstein flew to in order to add UF6 gas to the shipments of centrifuges which he acquired from the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant outside of Piketon, Ohio.
     Some researchers additionally suspect Epstein of flying nuclear materials to Saudi Arabia, and/or the United Arab Emirates, to be transported to Kish Island (a claim which implicates a relationship between the Epstein / nuclear scandal and the disappearance of former F.B.I. agent Robert Levinson. Levinson was arrested by Iranian authorities under suspicion of being a C.I.A. agent.
     Some researchers believe that Prescott Bush once owned a larger piece of property on which Zorro Ranch now sits.     

     Perhaps not surprisingly, there are also rumors about Epstein allegedly working with Nazi scientists.  In 2004, the New York Times revealed that Donald Barr worked for the Office of Strategic Services (O.S.S.) during World War II. O.S.S. was a precursor to the Central Intelligence Agency (C.I.A.). Some researchers suspect our attorney general's father Donald Barr of having been a recruiter and vetter for the C.I.A.'s "Operation Paperclip", a program to recruit German scientists, whom had previously worked for the Nazis, to work for the U.S. government.
     Curiously, Donald Barr published several fantasy novels, including Space Relations, which features descriptions of a breeding farm. Even curioser, Epstein had interest in creating such a breeding farm for himself.
     Bizarrely, multiple reputable and mainstream news sources have published reports about Epstein's efforts to create these so-called "clone farms"; including The New York Times, Rolling StoneVanity Fair, Forbes, The Daily Beast, and the U.K.-based Guardian and Independent. So the idea that Epstein's "clone farm" / "baby ranch" project is just a rumor or conspiracy theory, is untrue.
     Additionally, Alan Dershowitz has acknowledged that Epstein sought to do create these clone farms. On July 31st, 2019, The New York Times reported that Dershowitz commented on the scientists whom Epstein recruited to explore his clone farm ideas. Dershowitz reportedly said "Everyone speculated about whether these scientists were more interested in his [Epstein's] views or more interested in his money." The Guardian later reported that Dershowitz was "appalled" by Epstein's "interest in genetic manipulation, given the Nazis' use of eugenics in the 1930s".
     For those who don't understand how it's possible that Nazis and Israelis could work together, I urge you to do a search engine search for the terms "Jewish Ghetto Police", "Rabbi Chaim Rumkowski", "Stern Gang Nazis"; and then search YouTube for Neturei Karta, and rabbis Yaakov Shapiro, Yisroel Dovid Weiss, and Elnahan Beck. Additionally, Jews and Nazis worked together famously under the second Bush administration (when the Nazi-war-profiteer Bush dynasty and its many Jewish-American undersecretaries and deputies made their case for war against Iraq in 2002-2003).
     Additionally, read Laura Loomer's August 2019 article "Who Made Epstein A Money Mogul? Edgar Bronfman" if you would like to learn more about the ties between Jeffrey Epstein, Edgar Bronfman, Germany, Bush-Nazi collusion, and a spy and financial advisor for the Italian Agnelli family named Giuseppe B. Tome. In the early 1980s, Tome did insider trading on behalf of Bronfman's company Seagram's, and went to jail after Epstein loaned him money and then set him up. Tome was indicted in 1984.
     Nazis and Israelis have both put Jewish people in danger, although in different ways. The Nazis overworked, tortured, deprived, and outright killed the Jews; while the Israelis arm half of their people (including rabbis who don't wish to be armed), use siege warfare and kill medics, and wonder why people think they look so aggressive (which must mean they dispute the Jews' right to defend their lives, right?). The Israelis have armed enemies of Jewish people in Syria and Ukraine with Ukrainian- and Israeli-made weapons. The Israeli military and its propaganda have intimidated the remaining Jewish people who still have faith in G-d - and want to keep practicing their religion instead of being forced to kill Palestinians in Israel's military draft - virtually into silence. The fact that Jews continue to be in danger following the Holocaust, is thus used to justify the continued repression of the Palestinians, exercised by the Zionist regime. This, despite the revelations that attacks on Jewish people increase worldwide whenever Israel is at war.

     In 2011, Vanity Fair reported that Alan Dershowitz once said, “I'm on my 20th book... The only person outside of my immediate family that I send drafts to is Jeffrey.” Curiously, Alan Dershowitz has recently been in the news, reporting that he's helping Donald Trump and Jared Kushner draft a deal involving the future of Palestine. Who knows how much legal and political influence Dershowitz could have in Israel, considering how many Jewish criminals and M.O.S.S.A.D. agents he's represented?

12. What Marc Rich and Joseph E. Schmitz (Tangentially) Have to Do with All of This

     The revelations about the relationships between Jeffrey Epstein and the likes of Donald and William Barr, New Mexico, Israel, and Iran - as well as revelations about the relationship between the Bush family and child sex trafficking - warrant some research into two people in particular. Those people are Marc Rich and Joseph E. Schmitz.

     Marc Rich was a Belgian-born Jew with citizenship in multiple countries (including Israel), although he was based in Switzerland. He was also a billionaire commodities trader, hedge fund manager, a financier, and a philanthropist. Rich was pardoned by Bill Clinton in 2000 or 2001, for a nearly $50 million tax evasion case which began in 1983. Clinton later expressed regret about the pardon.
     Rich allegedly also played a role in making oil deals with Iran during the Iran hostage crisis of 1979-1981. Rich allegedly helped get Iranian oil to Israel as part of those deals. In 2002, it was reported that Rich's name turned up in an Italian-led money laundering investigation called "Operation Spiderweb". Italian authorities say Rich help set up a company called Nordex, which is allegedly linked to the Russian mafia. Rich's spokesman Thomas Frutig, the director of Marc Rich Holdings, denied that Rich had any connections with either Nordex or Benex (another company with alleged ties to the Russian mob). Marc Rich died in Switzerland in 2013.
     In 2005, Wayne Madsen reported that Marc Rich is linked to crime figures not only in Russia, but also in Ukraine, and that those crime figures "have exiled themselves to Israel to avoid prosecution". Madsen also reported that Marc Rich once hired Scooter Libby as his lawyer. I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby served as the chief of staff to then Vice President Dick Cheney, was sentenced to prison in 2007 for lying to investigators about his role in the outing of undercover C.I.A. agent Valerie Plame in the so-called "Plame Affair" involving the C.I.A. front "Brewster Jennings & Associates". Madsen believes that Rich, Libby, Cheney, and the C.I.A. have all been involved in international weapons smuggling.
     Interestingly, Valerie Plame recently announced that she's running for Congress; from New Mexico, in fact. She also recently criticized Attorney General William Barr for characterizing the 2016 surveillance of the Trump campaign as "spying". Plame's status as a C.I.A. agent was revealed in a syndicated column by Robert Novak in 2003. Novak claimed that Richard Armitage was his source for that information. Armitage, as a reminder, reportedly "lobbied heavily" for the release of the "Dancing Israelis" who were arrested after being spotted filming and celebrating the attacks on the World Trade Center.

     Joseph E. Schmitz is an American attorney, former inspector general of the U.S. Department of Defense, and a former executive with Blackwater Worldwide (the military contracting firm later renamed Xe Services and Academi). Schmitz is the brother-in-law of Jeb Bush, through Bush's wife Columba.
     Joseph E. Schmitz is the son of John G. Schmitz, an ultra-conservative politician from California. Joseph E. Schmitz's sister is Mary Kay Letourneau, who married Vili Fualaau in 2005 after serving six years in prison for having sex with him while he was underage.
     In 2016, Schmitz reportedly faced criticism "for his involvement in a plot to arm Syrian rebels with close ties to al-Qaida", with Ukrainian weapons, with the help of the Saudis. Schmitz allegedly attempted to facilitate private arms purchases for the Free Syrian Army.
     Given this alleged armament of Syrians with Ukrainian weapons, it's certainly worth noting that over the last four years, agents in Israeli have reportedly sold Israeli-made weapons to terrorist groups in the Ukraine and Syria, which subsequently used those weapons against Jewish targets in those countries. One can't help but wonder whether Schmitz may have played a role in getting weapons into the hands of anti-Semitic terrorists, possibly in order to justify increased foreign aid and military funding for Israel in order to combat such groups.
     Considering the fact that Schmitz's sister had a sexual relationship with a minor, it's also worth noting that in January 2014, a lawsuit was settled in the Eastern District of Virginia, in which wrongful deaths and other abuses of Iraqi victims were alleged, including by a former guard employed at Blackwater. That former Blackwater guard said that he saw his colleagues, and American soldiers, paying Iraqi girls for sex. Blackwater's C.E.O. is Erik Prince, whose sister Betsy deVos currently serves as Donald Trump's Secretary of Education. That deVos, as Education Secretary, is in charge of our nation's children, should be considered disturbing, given that her brother (as C.E.O. of Blackwater) might have known about these sex crimes. Blackwater has also come under fire in the past for controversies in which their contractors killed civilians.
     In 2016, Donald Trump hired Joseph E. Schmitz as a foreign policy adviser to his campaign. When Trump was elected, Schmitz organized the transition.
     But the Blackwater underage prostitution scandal in Iraq is not the only example of underage sex crime abroad; the "Bacha Bazi" dancing boy scandal in Afghanistan could relate to Epstein. Epstein's allegedly "C.I.A.-co-owned" Lolita Express plane was identified as having the same tail number as a State Department Bronco plane which was used by private security firm DynCorp under contract with the government. That tail number was N474AW; this information comes according to researchers on

13. Epstein's Ties to Bill Gates and M.I.T.

     Epstein's relationship with the Clintons and Bill Gates - and Epstein's possible relationship with their charity organizations - should also raise questions.
     In August 2019, CNBC, the New York Post, and others reported that billionaire Microsoft C.E.O. Bill Gates knew Jeffrey Epstein, and met with him several times to discuss philanthropy, after Epstein served over a year in jail for sex crimes involving a minor. Gates's spokespersons have denied Epstein's claim that he did financial management work for Gates, and denies that the two men have charitable associations with one another.
     Whether Gates knew of Epstein's crimes is not certain; although considering the reports that Eva Andersson-Dubin knew about them in 2009, it seems likely that many people who knew Epstein after he left jail, knew about them. Gates's spokespersons have acknowledged that Gates flew on one of Epstein's private planes, but no evidence suggests Gates flew on the Lolita Express specifically. 
     The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has existed since 2000, when it was originally called the William H. Gates Foundation. The Gates Foundation website has published numerous press releases about its activities in Haiti. Those activities reportedly involve aid, emergency response, transformation of Haiti's banking sector, and funding assistance to the Global Fund for A.I.D.S. and Health.
     Coincidentally, Bill and Hillary Clinton have their own couple's charity, the Clinton Foundation, which - like the Gates Foundation - has also been involved in Haiti. In 2010, following the earthquake and tsunami which hit Haiti that January, the Clinton Foundation announced its commitment to "rebuilding a new Haiti".
     On January 29th, 2010, a group of American missionaries attempted to cross the border from Haiti into the Dominican Republic, with 33 orphaned Haitian children. The missionaries belonged to a group called the New Life Children's Refuge, founded by Laura Silsby (later Laura Gayler). Silsby was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping. Silsby received time served after pleading guilty to the lesser charge of "arranging irregular air travel". Wikileaks e-mails released in 2016 reveal that Hillary Clinton has been communicating with Silsby about her non-governmental organization since no later than 2001.

     The fact that the Gates Foundation and the Clinton Foundation have these ties to both Haiti and Epstein (and thereby, incidentally, to child trafficking allegations) is strange enough. But it gets stranger, as some suspect Epstein of smuggling weapons inside of A.I.D.S. drug shipments, as part of weapons trafficking flights he made for elites.
     Additionally, a December 2011 e-mail, revealed by Wikileaks, showed that John Podesta was CC'd on an e-mail addressed from Ira Magaziner to Amitabh Desai, which cast doubt on the potential success of publicly pressuring American and European A.I.D.S. drugs companies to lower their prices. Critics of the Clintons have characterized this e-mail as proof that the Clinton Foundation "schemed with Big Pharma to keep the price of AIDS drugs high in America".
     If it turned out that the Clintons intentionally conspired to keep A.I.D.S. drugs expensive, while working to relieve the suffering in Haiti, then that would certainly be ironic, and suggest that the Clintons' efforts in Haiti were "just for show". But the possibility that Epstein could have been flying-in drugs and weapons for the Clintons, suggests that the Clinton Foundation's goals in Haiti could be more about fomenting civil war or promoting American imperialist interests there, while delivering A.I.D.S. drugs to elites in the country rather than the poor who need them the most desperately.
     It's even possible that Epstein was helping the Clintons to run a profiteering scheme and a racketeering operation. By restricting the price of A.I.D.S. drugs - first by holding onto them, and second by refraining from pressuring drug companies to lower their prices - they could cause demand to increase, thus leading to an increase in prices. That would make very rich people of whomever controls the supply of those A.I.D.S. drugs. And that is not outside the realm of possibility, because we know it's Standard Operating Procedure for Democrats. As Rahm Emanuel once said, "Never let a good crisis go to waste".
     On the other hand, a December 30th, 2016 article from the Huffington Post, entitled "Is the Clinton Foundation Responsible for the High Price of AIDS Drugs in the US?" reported that Clinton knew that drug companies wanted to offer free drugs in Africa, but also knew that it would be difficult for countries to import those drugs for free without "compromising the integrity" of the American pharmaceutical industry. Whatever that means, and whatever that has to do with Haiti.
     But Haiti aside, if Jeffrey Epstein was smuggling weapons inside of A.I.D.S. drugs shipments, then the more likely scenario is that Epstein (or his company) did it when he flew to Africa in the early 2000s. When Bill Clinton, Kevin Spacey, and Chris Tucker flew on Epstein's Boeing 727 together in 2002, it was to Africa, to tour A.I.D.S. prevention project sites and A.I.D.S. treatment project sites. Epstein's level of involvement in the Clintons' affairs might have been very significant, as lawyers once claimed that Epstein "was part of the original group that conceived the Clinton Global Initiative".
     Some researchers allege that the media's focus on Epstein's sex crimes, is serving as a cover and a distraction from his smuggling of weapons and nuclear materials.

     Epstein's possible work for the Clintons aside, we should also examine Epstein's ties to Bill Gates and M.I.T. (the Massachusetts Institute of Technology).
     On September 7th, 2019, CNBC reported that a "Top MIT official resigns over financial connections to Jeffrey Epstein". That official was Joichi Ito, the director of M.I.T.'s Media Lab. Joichi Ito admitted to taking $525,000 of Epstein's money for the M.I.T. Media Lab, and also to accepting $1.2 million of Epstein's money for investment funds which Ito controlled separately from Epstein. M.I.T. has received $800,000 from Epstein over 20 years, and following Epstein's apparent suicide in jail, M.I.T. spokespersons expressed regret at accepting the money.
     The M.I.T. Media Lab described itself as an "anti-disciplinary" academic endeavor, replacing peer review with "peer-to-peer review", and refraining from charging money for accessing content. It aimed to "connect science and design".
     M.I.T. allegedly consulted Epstein about the use of his donations, and marked them as anonymous so as to prevent their full public disclosure. The New Yorker and Business Insider reported in the first week of September 2019 that Epstein served as an intermediary between M.I.T. Media Lab and wealthy donors. These donors reportedly included Bill Gates, who donated $2 million, and investor and art collector Leon Black, who donated $5.5 million. According to Business Insider, some staff of the lab referred to Epstein as (Harry Potter villain) "Voldemort", and "he who must not be named" as part of the effort to conceal Epstein's identity.

     Some researchers believe that Leslie Wexner was never really Epstein's biggest bankroller after all; that that title went to Edgar Bronfman Sr., the (now deceased) Jewish-Canadian-American president of Seagram's liquor company.

14. The Bronfmans, Mega Group, and the NXIVM Cult

     A Wall Street Journal article from May 8th, 1998, entitled "Titans of Industry Join Forces To Work for Jewish Philanthropy", began with the following sentence: "When movie mogul Steven Spielberg, Seagram Chairman Edgar Bronfman Sr. and former hedge-fund manager Michael Steinhardt met at Mr. Steinhardt's Manhattan apartment last month, the main topic was neither films nor high finance but considerably more complex than either: being Jewish."
     The article went on to describe this group as a "loosely organized" group of "20 of the nation's wealthiest and most influential Jewish businessmen." This group was originally called the "Study Group", and is informally known among journalists as "Mega Group". It was founded in 1991. Some researchers believe that Mega Group is affiliated with M.O.S.S.A.D., or at least that its purpose is to promote not only Jewish philanthropic interests but explicitly Israeli interests.
     In 2001, Lyndon LaRouche's website published an article claiming that Leslie Wexner - Epstein's principal creditor - was a member of the Mega Group, in addition to Edgar Bronfman's brother Charles. Other names mentioned were Leonard Abramson, Max Fisher, Harvey Meyerhoff, and Laurence Tisch (two of whom have been in high levels of the U.S. intelligence hierarchy).
     It is certainly noteworthy that the Bronfmans have business ties all over the world (as owners of Seagram's Vodka and other brands), and also that there is a Ukrainian-Israeli politician in Israel named Roman Bronfman, as well as Bronfmans in Canada (Abe and Stephen) with ties to the Mulroney and Trudeau Jr. administrations. Edgar and Charles's father Samuel immigrated to the United States from Bessarabia (now Moldova, a small country neighboring Ukraine).
     This is why the NXIVM scandal suggests possible interests in American sex trafficking by agents in Israel, Canada, or possibly Ukraine. In April 2019, Edgar Bronfman's daughter Clare pleaded guilty to supplying Keith Raniere's NXIVM sex cult with $150 million. Several Hollywood actresses, including Allison Mack and Kristin Kreuk, have been implicated in the NXIVM scandal, after reports surfaced which indicated that Raniere is a pedophile, and that he coerced women into allowing him to brand them with a symbol that he didn't inform them was made up of his own initials.
     In June 2019, Raniere was convicted of keeping women as sex slaves and engaging in blackmail to cover it up.

     But the Bronfmans aren't the only influential family caught up in the NXIVM cult (aside from Hollywood actresses); the Clintons and the father of New York Senator Kristin Gillibrand have been implicated in this scandal too.
     The current junior senator from the State of New York is Kirsten Gillibrand. Her father is Douglas "Doug" Rutnik, an attorney. NXIVM hired Rutnik as a consultant or lobbyist for the cult, firing Rutnik but paying him a $100,000 retainer. Clare Bronfman subsequently donated money to Kirsten Gillibrand, who accepted those funds.
     When Kirsten Gillibrand withdrew her candidacy for the Democratic Party's nomination for president, the campaign of Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar sent Gillibrand's team some pizza. This was supposedly done to make the Gillibrand team "cheer up", but Pizzagate researchers believe that Klobuchar's people might have been trying to mock Gillibrand for her father's association with the cult (and, thereby, with sex trafficking).
     In April 2019, allegations surfaced, which revealed that NXIVM had sought to donate excessive and illegal amounts of funds to the campaign of an unnamed presidential candidate. There has been speculation that Hillary Clinton was that candidate. For one, Kristin Gillibrand has donated to Clinton. Second, a man named Frank Parlato told Big League Politics that Clinton was the candidate in question. Parlato is a whistleblower who once worked as a publicist for NXIVM.
     In 1989, Edgar Bronfman offered to buy a controlling share of the Jerusalem Post. His partner in that bid was publishing magnate Robert Maxwell, the father of Jeffrey Epstein's sex slave recruiter and one-time girlfriend Ghislaine. As a reminder, Maxwell made his money in publishing. So a joint effort, on the behalf of Maxwell and Bronfman, to acquire major media outlets in Israel, would have allowed them to promote their brands - as well as any joint ventures they may have had (perhaps including sex trafficking rings) - both in Israel and in the English-speaking world.
     And if that was their intention, then the level of collusion and intrigue in which these stories could stand to implicate the surviving associates of those two now deceased men, is both stunning and overwhelming. Fortunately, however, we come now to summaries and conclusions.

15. Conclusion #1: Israeli Spying is a Serious Concern, and "The Squad" Fights Blind U.S. Devotion Towards the State of Israel

     These new revelations about Epstein and Dershowitz are disturbing enough, tough enough to swallow, and indicative enough that something is seriously wrong with our legal and political systems, especially in regard to how children (citizen and undocumented immigrant alike) are treated while in the care of government employees and politicians. Let alone the racist statements of Trump, his racist crowds, Kellyanne Conway, and even Kentucky Senator Rand Paul. Paul commented that he'd be “willing to contribute and buy” Ilhan Omar “a ticket to go visit Somalia”, adding “then maybe after she's visited Somalia for a while, she might come back and appreciate America more.”
     But the most ridiculous thing of all, is that nearly all of the four congresswomen comprising “the Squad” have become infamous for their criticism of the “no daylight between us” policy regarding America and Israel. This is the policy which, thus far, has made it acceptable to promote Israeli interests in the halls of American legislative bodies, such that several times in recent years, between 75 and 90% of Senators and House members have supported resolutions and signed A.I.P.A.C. pledges vowing to promise U.S. support for the State of Israel. During the Obama Administration, for example, nearly 80 U.S. Senators wrote a letter to then President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, pledging to support Israel. Additionally, now, about half of the states in America now legally prohibit the boycott of Israeli-made goods by public-sector employees.
     One member of the Squad, Rashida Tlaib, is of Palestinian heritage. In August, it became evident that President Trump contacted Israelis - likely Benjamin Netanyahu – and urged them to refrain from permitting Congresswoman Tlaib from visiting her family there. In a 2018 interview, another “Squad” member, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, referred to the bulldozing of Palestinian homes by Israelis. She has also compared I.C.E. detention facilities to concentration camps. Omar is from Somalia and received backlash for some of her Twitter comments on the undue amount of Israeli influence on American legislative politics.
     These women - whom have taken the brunt of Republican criticism on matters related to immigration and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict - are some of the few people calling for the beginning of impeachment hearings against Trump, a president who has effectively outed himself as a sex trafficker enabler and a proponent of internment camps for undocumented immigrants.
     It is quite ironic that these women are being described as “anti-American” for confronting President Trump. They are duly elected officials, all of whom are in America legally, and impeaching the president is a perfectly legal constitutional process. They are neither rebels, nor traitors, nor un-American. They are constructively criticizing American laws; they are not attacking America, Americans, nor American institutions. Frankly, the facts that they are being called anti-American, while they obviously aren't (they just think America can do better, and it always can), suggests that it's not really America-hating that their detractors fear. The Squad's detractors hate them because they've criticized Israel, and our inhumane treatment of immigrants at the border. Apparently "putting America first" for some reason involves placing Israel's interests above the interests of the United States.
     Donald Trump famously doubled-down on his claim that thousands of people saw Arabs celebrating the attacks of 9/11. But how would he feel if he knew that that was a fit of post-9/11 mass hysteria? News programs played videos of Arabs rioting about other things, after 9/11 happened, to galvanize public hatred towards Arabs and sell a war in the Middle East. And a few people saw the Dancing Israelis celebrate the 9/11 attacks. How would Donald Trump feel if he knew that he was wrong about who celebrated the 9/11 attacks, and wrong to assume that the Saudis and Israelis (his allies) played significant roles in planning 9/11 and/or allowing it to occur?
    Of course, since Trump is a conspiracy theorist (remember his interest in the Obama birth certificate controversy), it's totally possible that Trump already knows that several M.O.S.S.A.D. agents were seen celebrating 9/11 on a rooftop in New Jersey, and that he's just neglecting to mention it, because of how much heat Israel, Netanyahu, Alan Dershowitz, and Trump's whole pro-Israel team, would have to take in the fallout of such a revelation. If the public ever ceases hating Muslims, and heaping collective blame for 9/11 upon Muslims, and puts it onto the Saudis or Israelis specifically, it will destroy Trump's foreign policy narrative. Besides, revealing that the people seen celebrating 9/11 were Israelis - not "Palestinians" nor Muslims abroad - would undermine Trump's anti-Arab and Islamophobic narrative. Trump would simply have no incentive to admit the truth about the Dancing Israelis, and if he did, the many Israel backers around him would ensure that he and his career suffer because of it.
     Keeping the heat off of Israel also serves Trump's goal of racializing American political rhetoric by pretending that the same people who want a colorblind society want to make everything about race themselves. This is to say that pushing a staunchly pro-Israel narrative - while avoiding the topics of Epstein, the Maxwells, Dershowitz, Ehud Barak, Leslie Wexner, and others - allows the administration cover to deny that the detention facilities it maintains on the U.S.-Mexico border could be compared to concentration camps. The Trump Administration, like previous staunchly pro-Israel right-wing administrations, is ensuring that a Holocaust-type event "never again" happens to the Jews, while right-wingers (Jew and Gentile alike) cast doubt on the notion that anybody besides Jews might ever be detained, overworked, deprived, or exposed to dangerous chemicals, in a manner which warrants comparisons with the manner in which Jews were treated in the Nazi Holocaust. As a student of the 1919 "Bath Riots" at El Paso / Juarez, I can assure you that Americans, twenty years before the Nazis, pioneered the use of Zyklon-B against races they suspected to carry disease.
     Even if you strongly disagree with the Squad's politics, you should at least admit that the American military has intervened in far too many countries, and that that is the reason why so many Latin American and Middle Eastern immigrants are seeking refuge here. Often times, immigrants to America are seeking refuge in the country that deposed their democratically elected government. Why should "assimilation" - at least in a full or coerced way - be necessary, when they love the country that destroyed their home so much? Their actions demonstrate an almost suicidal level of trust, humility, and gift of benefit of the doubt, to their host country. I say they've earned it. Eleven people were let into America from Syria in 2017. Don't we owe these people some compensation for destroying their country and making it unlivable, essentially giving them no viable option but to come to the gates of the enemy; essentially, to surrender? They're not coming here to mooch, they're coming here to avoid getting killed by American bombs and C.I.A.-supported drug gangs.

16. Conclusion #2: The Stakes of Underestimating Jeffrey Epstein and the Israeli M.O.S.S.A.D. (including What This Has to Do with Russiagate and Pizzagate)

     If it turned out that Israel, the Saudis, and the United Kingdom - now our allies - were actually the countries which spied on plotted against America the most, then that would be a foreign policy catastrophe. Sadly, that is the case, while we also find it fit to demonize the Russians, Iranians, and other Middle Eastern nations that had nothing to do with either 9/11 or the U.S.S. Cole bombing. [Note: The 2000 U.S.S. Cole bombing, and the 1967 U.S.S. Liberty incident, were the only events since World War II in which another sovereign nation attacked a U.S. military target unprovoked; the U.S.S. Cole by the Sudan, the U.S.S. Liberty by the Israelis.]
     As if it wasn't bad enough already that the current administration running the United States were racist, anti-immigrant, Islamophobic - and apt to repeat pro-Zionist tropes which undermine the efforts of peaceful Jews who know Judaism is about religion, not race - the Trump Administration has also stooped to ramping-up friction with the Russians (probably in order to prove the neo-liberal Democratic establishment wrong in their claims that Trump loves Russia). If only Trump had stayed true to his word, and continued working towards a friendship with Russia! It would help reduce antipathies between Americans and the countries which regard Russia as a protector (which is a lot of them).
     Those foreign policy concerns aside, I will remind you that the administration has, very successfully, brushed the Epstein story (i.e., megaconspiracy) under the rug. One pundit recently noted that it has become a "third or fourth -tier story". And of course it shouldn't be, given the fact that not only Alexander Acosta but also William Barr and Trump, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Al and Tipper Gore - and so many other high-level officials in the politics of multiple countries, such as Ehud Barak and Prince Andrew - have been accused and implicated as Epstein's co-conspirators.
     The result of the lawsuits against Epstein's collaborators - and how the administration handles the news of those convictions and acquittals - could very well have huge consequences upon the future of American foreign policy, especially in terms of how American voters look at Israel, its Arab neighbors, Iran, Russia, Ukraine, and other nations. That is why it is very important that the administration, the voting public, and journalists alike, get this right.

     To drive the point home about what the stakes are here, it will be helpful to reveal a few final facts about Iran-Contra, Alan Dershowitz, the Barr family, and Jeffrey Epstein's brother, to show just how bizarre and complex the Epstein saga is (as if it weren't clear already).
     First off: I will remind readers that William Barr, and Bush Sr. and Bill Clinton, and Jeffrey Epstein and Leslie Wexner, and Elliott Abrams - as well as Kaspar Weinberger and Oliver North - were involved in the Iran-Contra scandal.
     That scandal, to reiterate, involved the sale of weapons to Iran and the use of profits to fund American-backed counterrevolutionaries in Nicaragua. During a congressional hearing in February 2019, "Squad" member Ilhan Omar famously asked Elliott Abrams why his statements should be trusted, given that he lied before Congress when in the same position over three decades ago. Omar also asked Abrams if he regretted America's actions in Nicaragua.
     To be clear: These men conspired to arm Iran, the country they claim is the most anti-Semitic, anti-American country in the world. And Elliott Abrams and William Barr are still in Washington, now serving the current administration. Barr is Attorney General, Abrams is on the Council on Foreign Relations and served as Special Envoy to Venezuela (God help us), while Joseph G. Schmitz helped conduct the Trump transition, and Alan Dershowitz provides legal defense and defensive media commentary to whichever war criminal (or child, drug, and/or weapon trafficker) needs it.
     Thus, the Trump Administration is a well-oiled machine designed to protect Israeli expansionist interests, while at the same time it, like the last two administrations, is a "perfect storm" of bad policies and officials, cobbled together from those previous administrations themselves. Given White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders's explanation as to why the administration continued to enforce the Obama-era policy of separating families - saying "it is very biblical to enforce the law" - we should not expect the administration to let the Squad and their comments run roughshod over their political, geo-strategic, propagandist, and financial ambitions.

     Second: In 2012, Epstein lawyer Dershowitz, Holocaust survivor and author Elie Wiesel, "9/11 mayor" Rudy Giuliani, John Bolton, Tom Ridge, Howard Dean, and a former Canadian justice minister, teamed up, in an effort to de-list the M.E.K. from the U.S. State Department's list of foreign terrorist groups.
     The M.E.K. is the People's Mujahedin of Iran, which aims to overthrow the regime which currently governs Iran. Dershowitz denied that their efforts had anything to do with their feelings regarding Israel.
     Are we to trust Alan Dershowitz - whom has defended the spy for Israel Jonathan Pollard and at least three Jewish child molesters - when he says that his opinions about terrorist groups in Iran, has nothing to do with his feelings about Israel? I say no.

     Third: We should really try to contend with exactly how many Israeli spies we are dealing with here.
     We know that Jeffrey Epstein was "an asset" (from reports about Alex Acosta), but there's no guarantee that he was strictly an American intelligence asset, or strictly an Israeli one. Reporter Seymour Hirsh and Robert Steele of the C.I.A. believe that Jeffrey Epstein was a M.O.S.S.A.D. agent. Philip Giraldi of the C.I.A. entertained that possibility too.
     Conservative commentator Rick Wiles believes that, not only was Jeffrey Epstein an Israeli spy, but that Monica Lewinsky and William Barr have spied for Israel as well. Which is a curious possibility, given the following facts: 1) Barr's involvement in Iran-Contra resulted in the armament of Iran, which needed to happen to make Israel look vulnerable; and 2) Monica Lewinsky might have been a "honeypot" spy whose goal was to extract information from Bill Clinton.
     It is also interesting to note that Marilyn Monroe may have served the same role in the Kennedy administration; to find out Kennedy's views on Israel and its nuclear weapons program, and then to give that information to agents of the Jewish mafia in America. Some suspect not only Monica Lewinsky, but also her father, of having been Israeli agents. It is noteworthy that the American bombing of Baghdad in 1998 began just as the Lewinsky scandal was unraveling. Thus, Lewinsky (and Monroe) would have plenty of incentive to find out the president's best-hidden secret opinions about Middle East (and Israeli) politics.
     But even if Barr and Lewinsky never worked for M.O.S.S.A.D., we can conclude with a fair amount of confidence that Epstein's girlfriend's father Robert Maxwell was an Israeli spy, and that his daughter Ghislaine probably followed in his footsteps. Additionally, William Barr (just like Robert Ney in the early 2000s) has, at least, provided cover for Israel to do as it pleases with Americans and American foreign policy. With Jewish-Americans like Elliott Abrams and Jared Kushner - and Zionist Gentiles like John Bolton, William Barr, and the Republican Party's Evangelical base - on their side, the Trump Administration's efforts to support Israel, can go forward smoothly. Even if it means arming Israel's enemies in order to make it obvious that Israel and Jews are vulnerable.
     All those possible Israeli spies and plants, and that's not even mentioning Dershowitz's defense of Jonathan Pollard and the Dancing Israelis. It's not even mentioning that Hollywood producer and sexual predator Harvey Weinstein hired M.O.S.S.A.D.-affiliated Black Cube agents to intimidate his accusers into silence. It's also leaving out the fact that Dershowitz opposes both the investigations of the Southern District of New York and the impeachment of President Trump; as well as the fact that Dershowitz is currently working with Donald Trump and Jared Kushner on a potential Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement.
     The level of Israeli collusion which these facts suggest, is astounding, and that's why we cannot be sure how many people high up in government are either spying on behalf of Israel, or else openly prioritizing Israeli interests over American interests.

     Fourth: Some researchers have suggested that the Barr family (i.e., Donald and William) is just one of several families chosen by the C.I.A. to help foreigners enter the United States. These foreigners include people whom would otherwise be considered enemies of the state. This should call into question the status of the supposed Russians or Ukrainians working as "unregistered foreign agents" (which for all intents and purposes should be considered interchangeable with "spies").
     Through a military program called M.A.V.N.I. (Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest), foreigners were allegedly let in as "students" attending American University and Ivy League colleges, with the help of college visas to get them into the country. The normal activities of M.A.V.N.I. involve the fast-tracking of foreign nationals' U.S. citizenship application process by means of giving immigrants the option to enlist in the U.S. Armed Forces.
     It would certainly be a fascinating revelation if this were the case, because it could explain why several Israeli nationals were arrested after 9/11 while posing as art students. Maybe it could also explain why some conspiracy theorists believe that Barack Obama worked for the C.I.A. in Pakistan as a translator for the Mujahideen, as well as shed some light on the fact that Obama admitted his parents met in a foreign language class at the University of Hawaii (a known front for the C.I.A.'s operations in countries bordering the Pacific Ocean).
     But to the point, the families besides the Barrs, whom researchers allege to have procured foreign nationals for service in the C.I.A., are the Bushes, the Bronfmans, and the Strzoks. Peter Strzok was the Chief of the Counterespionage Section of the F.B.I.. Earlier this year, he led the F.B.I.'s investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a personal server for her e-mails. Strzok, no longer with the F.B.I. had an affair with former F.B.I. attorney Lisa Page. In summer 2017, Robert Mueller took Strzok off the Trump-Russia investigation after Mueller found out that Strzok and Page exchanged text messages critical of Donald Trump.
     Some researchers believe that Maria Butina - and the Ukrainians who posed as reporters whom were supposedly brought in by Alexandra Chalupa to research Trump's and Manafort's possible ties to Russia - were brought into the service of the C.I.A. through M.A.V.N.I.. Chalupa is a Ukrainian-American D.N.C. contractor and consultant. She is credited with getting Paul Manafort fired and outed as an agent of Yanukovych's minister Zlochevsky, after beginning to research Manafort's ties in 2014. Maria Butina is a Russian gun rights activist, currently incarcerated after pleading guilty to conspiring to act as a foreign agent.
     If Peter Strzok is really part of a C.I.A. recruiting dynasty, then for all we know, Strzok could have recruited those spies himself, in order to spy on the Trump administration, rather than to conduct opposition research on Trump-Russia and Trump-Manafort ties. In case you're wondering, the Trump-Russia tie is that Manafort lobbied on behalf of Mykola Zlochevsky, who was the Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources under supposedly "pro-Russian" President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych.
     Incidentally, Manafort had interests in Burisma Holdings Ltd., Ukraine's largest energy company, whose board contains members of the Biden and Kerry families. Additionally, former Hillary Clinton adviser Tamera Stanton Luzzatto, the wife of Burisma's former lobbyist David J. Leiter, sent an e-mail to John Podesta and others about her granddaughters being in a heated pool for "entertainment" (in the infamous "Pizzagate" scandal of 2016, and in the wake of the public leaking of Podesta's e-mails). Burisma was co-founded by Mykola Zlochevsky.
     Additionally, the Podestas have interests in the Ukraine. In September 2018, the U.S. Department of Justice (D.O.J.) released a letter authored by Justice Department attorney Heather Hunt, which suggests that lobbyists associated with Paul Manafort knew that Manafort was taking orders from the Ukrainian government. In Hunt's letter, she said the D.O.J. had determined that Manafort and Rick Gates should have registered for their work in Ukraine, based on documents provided by attorneys for firms which worked with Manafort, the Podesta Group (as in John and Tony Podesta) and Mercury. The Podesta Group did work for the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine, which benefited the same Ukrainian political party, the Party of Regions, which Paul Manafort once advised. Viktor Yanukovych and Mykola Zlochevsky are both affiliated with that party.

     That is why underestimating the level of covert M.O.S.S.A.D. activity in the United States - and covert C.I.A. activity in the federal government - as well as allowing a deprivation of justice in the cases of Epstein's associates, could risk catastrophic consequences, both at home and abroad, in terms of the credibility of not only the United States federal government, but also the governments of Israel, Russia, and numerous other countries.
     Getting Epstein wrong could result in getting both Russiagate and Pizzagate wrong, as well as Ukrainegate, Manafort-gate, Podesta-gate, and ongoing U.S. foreign policy towards Russia and its various proxy states. But we should also take care to make sure we do not get the point of all this wrong: If American politicians are being blackmailed by foreign nations for their child sex crimes, then we should not be angry with that foreign country or its agents for revealing that to us, unless those foreign agents are actually the same people providing our politicians access to underage girls. When that is the case, people in both countries involved, need to be held accountable.

     While researching Epstein-gate, Pizzagate, Russiagate, Iran-Contra, 9/11, and other related topics, for yourself, bear the following in mind: 1) Remember what is being trafficked and smuggled; and 2) Remember the various subterfuges which may be in use to distract from the truth and cover for False Flag agents (i.e., foreign agents seeking to blame their illegal activities on other nations).
     Items being smuggled internationally, for which you should be on the lookout (as far as foreign spies and/or agents of our government go) include the following: money, illicit drugs, medications (including A.I.D.S. drugs), weapons, nuclear weapons parts and materials (including radioactive gas, nuclear weapon triggers, and centrifuge parts), adults and children being trafficked for the purposes of sex slavery and/or forced labor, moving equipment, surveillance equipment, children's toys, and art (as well as anything which could potentially be disguised as art).
     Those interested in Epstein's possible trafficking of nuclear materials, Epstein's ownership of the Zorro Ranch, and the history of the ownership of the same area, should look into the history of the Rockefellers and others, in regards to their ambitions to buy parcels of uranium-rich land. Additionally, research the "Megatons to Megawatts program" to convert Russian warheads to American nuclear energy, and the history of U.S.-Russian and U.S.-Soviet competition for uranium and ownership stake in uranium-rich land (i.e., the Uranium One scandal).
     Finally, be advised that - while the sex trafficking of children is certainly a horrible crime - it may serve as a convenient and salacious distraction from the larger scandals in which Epstein has been caught up (namely, Iran-Contra, Bear Stearns, M.O.S.S.A.D. activities against Saudis, etc.).

     On September 12th, 2019, Politico published a report entitled "Israel accused of planting mysterious spy devices near the White House". The same day, the B.B.C. reported that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu denied the findings of that Politico report. Some time in the last two years, the government concluded that Israel was likely behind the placement of miniature cell phone surveillance devices near the White House and around Washington, D.C..

     It would be difficult to adequately enumerate and explain – much less determine all the facts about, or solve – all of these conspiracy theories about Epstein.

     This article barely scratched the surface of the details of the mysterious circumstances surrounding Epstein's death (after being taken off of suicide watch). More information can be found in the following links, including my two-part video about Jeffrey Epstein, the second part of which contains a detailed discussion of Epstein's suicide watch and death:
