The Epstein Scandal: The Elite Trembles
Billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein was arrested by Federal prosecutors in New York on charges of sex abuse and trafficking of minors. And the elite trembles. Epstein had already been condemned on similar charges in the past, but had got off with a light sentence thanks to a plea deal brokered by former US attorney and current Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta. Acosta is now being highly criticized for the decision and is facing calls to resign.
Besides Acosta, Trump is also being accused of entertaining relations with Epstein, whom he praised in a declaration some years ago.
Mr. Epstein’s mansions
In truth, the US president is in no way involved in the matter. His supporters point out that Epstein’s main accuser in the Florida trial had sung the praises of the tycoon as the only one to challenge the silence surrounding the financier’s activities.
Trump banned Epstein from his Mar-a-Lago ranch after Epstein had molested a girl there. And it was Trump who, in 2015 at a rally, warned that the Epstein scandal would mean trouble for Bill Clinton.
The accusations against Trump seem to be crafted to shift attention from other issues. In an article by Vanity Fair, “The Talented Mr. Epstein,” censored by the publisher (as the journalist herself explains), Epstein’s house is described as “the crown jewel of the town’s residential houses.” And adds, “Epstein lives in what is reputed to be the largest private dwelling in New Mexico, on an $18 million, 7500-acre ranch which he named ‘Zorro’, and which “makes the [New York, ed.] town house look like a shack.”
Epstein also has his own private island, Little St. Thomas – nicknamed by some “orgy island” – in the Virgin islands. Furthermore, he owns private planes and helicopters, including the so-called “Lolita express”, on which underage masseuses travelled, and which Bill Clinton also flew on (allegedly over twenty times, although he says only four and accompanied by his staff). All these locations, sheltered from indiscreet eyes, were the venues hosting grand parties, teeming with young girls, writes VF.
The Epstein network
Epstein’s list of contacts is staggering. In an address book found in his house, the Washington Post writes that, “there are Democrats and Republicans, movie stars and movie moguls, an Israeli prime minister (Ehud Barak) and Saudi royals (Bandar and Salman), prime ministers and fellow billionaires.”
And the list continues: “Media titans such as Rupert Murdoch, Conrad Black and Michael Bloomberg; business magnates such as Richard Branson, Steve Forbes and Edgar Bronfman Jr.; Kennedys, Rockefellers and Rothschilds,” etc…
In her book, “TrafficKing,“ Conchita Sarnoff explains that many sought him out because “he has all the toys”…
In its article, VF describes him as a highly reserved man, with a “dark side” to him, and of whom one should be wary. It mentions the threats made to a journalist and the fact that the employees of a hedge fund where he began his career remember him as “that mysterious person everyone was scared to death of.” VF also remarks on Epstein’s preferences for young women, books by the Marquis De Sade, and for pomp and glamour (in his New York house he had J. P. Morgan’s “golden desk”).
It also mentions how his “guests were horrified” by his parties, confirming that they were out of the norm and that not all those attending were complicit. Entrusted by powerful men to handle billions of dollars for them, VF declares he was not particularly interested in financial and economic systems but more in a “style of life”.
Epstein‘s depravity was not limited to himself: he managed a network, possibly on behalf of others. The objective was probably to lure other tycoons and get them involved in order to subsequently blackmail them (also Ann Coulter of Fox News).
The elite trembles and covers up
This is the cross-section of the elite in power, an elite who needs monsters such as Epstein, taking care of the dirty business, as VF writes.
We’ve read thousands of articles about Ruby and Bunga Bunga, which compared to this, appear like mere straitlaced affairs. We’ve also read thousands of articles on pedophiles within the church. Yet, we know very little about Epstein’s parties and those who took part.
It would be useful to dig deeper and learn more about the fate of those young boys and girls exploited by the network, whose silence had to be guaranteed at all costs.
But the world would crumble, or rather, a world, if this happened. The global elite cannot afford for this to happen. They will cover it all up. This said, two things must be highlighted. The first is that Epstein’s arrest is a clear indication of the loss of power of certain spheres. The second concerns the Clintons, who after the Weinstein case, the Hollywood tycoon arrested for sexual assault, now find themselves mixed up in yet another troublesome fix.
Its momentum has encountered an unexpected interference. Clinton, like former Israeli Prime Minister Barak, recently back on the political stage, will have to work hard to defend himself.
