”They use all forms of persuasion to prevent people from speaking out, to silence people. Threats, intimidation, blackmail, financial deprivation. And all types of harassment such as put under intensive surveillance, telephone tapping, all of this. They pull out the stops and they have unlimited funds because those funds are supplied by the tax payer” Andrea Davison, Former Intelligence Agent (source)
Whilst the global press is focusing on Prince Andrew’s alleged involvement with Jefferey Epstein’s child trafficking sex ring, this may, in fact, actually pale in comparison to other criminal activity involving children by the hands of the British Establishment.
Sonia Poulton, a British journalist, social commentator, and filmmaker, has been investigating the dark web of pedophilia for years that connects Margaret Thatcher, ‘Sir’ Edward Heath, David Cameron, Theresa May, and Jeremey Corbyn to the cover-up (and for some, the actual facilitation) of sex crimes against children. It is thought that this cover-up, may have been going on for at least 30 years.
Her documentary ‘Paedophiles in Parliament’ is a shocking expose which links many MPs to child abuse. Sonia exposes how the British Royal Family is also tied into this.
Prominent Royal members were openly well-known friends to the now-deceased and notoriously depraved pedophile Jimmy Saville. Curiously, it is said that he had access to the Palace whenever he liked. With MI5 and Scotland Yard having the job of ‘vetting’ everyone around the Royals, it would have been known to them, that Jimmy Saville at the very least, had a very bad reputation and really was not ‘royal’ material.
Yet, he had a very close relationship with Prince Charles, for decades.
Buckingham Palace has been decontaminated. Prince Andrew’s office has been closed down. Any chair he sat in has been reupholstered, all doorknobs swabbed down. Let’s not even talk about the bathrooms.
I can’t remember a time when the royal family’s damage control was so swift and absolute. Priests are excommunicated with less haste and more mercy than Andrew in the wake of his disastrous BBC Epstein-related interview, and its ever-cascading fallout. But I detect the odor of scapegoating and hypocrisy in the decisive role that Prince Charles has played in this purge against his brother.
The urgency of Charles’s actions amounted to panic—the kind of panic that suggests that the future King is worried that the whole “firm” is in jeopardy. Nobody wants to lose the Queen but there are distinct signs that the prospect of King Charles IV is far from appealing to many of her subjects.
A recent poll by YouGov found that millennials are cooling toward the monarchy—among 18- to 24-year-olds, only 41 percent are in favor of keeping it.
And one of the things that more and more people are sniffing out about Charles is that he’s a phony—that behind his façade of concern for the future of the planet and talk about slimming down the monarchy, he is an outrageous hypocrite on both counts.
There is persuasive evidence for this in a new book, What the Royal Family Don’t Want You to Know…And What Do You Do? (Biteback Publishing, UK) by Norman Baker, a former government minister and long-time Member of Parliament who has become a zealous auditor of the royal firm’s accounts and travel habits.
Among the red flags that Baker raises are:
The Daily Beast reached out to Buckingham Palace for comment, and did not receive a response.
What makes Baker’s book particularly unusual is that he is currently a member of the Privy Council, the body of the “great and the wise” appointed as advisers to the Queen.
The title Duke of Cornwall is a lesser of Charles’s titles, Prince of Wales being the principal. But there is no loot with the Welsh title, nor much involvement with Wales except being invested with the title at an empty medieval pile, Caenarvon Castle, for which it is required to learn a few perfunctory lines of Welsh.
In contrast, the Duchy of Cornwall is loaded with wealth and land holdings that go back to 1337. Only 13 percent of the land is in Cornwall; there is four times as much in neighboring Devon, including 160 miles of coastline, and some hugely valuable sites in London.
The idea of using the Duchy name to brand a line of foods began in 1992 by using organic cereals from Duchy farms to make a line of biscuits named “Duchy Originals” – thereby seeming to be consistent with Charles’s well publicized devotion to the purity of organic products.
However, along with the world economy, the business crashed in 2008, making a loss of £3.3 million ($4.26 million). Charles was bailed out by the Waitrose supermarket chain, which saw an opportunity to punch the brand back into life by making it like a combination of Whole Foods and a royal franchise—all Duchy products carry the Duchy’s coat of arms as their logo.

The Met had to give an explanation for why it stopped investigating allegations of sex trafficking against Jeffrey Epstein after a woman who claims she was forced to have sex with the Duke of York accused the police of corruption.
Virginia Giuffre is pictured in a now-notorious photo of Prince Andrew with his hand around her bare waist, with Epstein and the Duke’s ‘friend’ Ghislaine Maxwell in the background. Then a teenager, she claims to have had sex with the royal at least three times back in 2001.
Some 14 years later, she brought her story to the Metropolitan Police Service, only to see the probe dropped rather quickly. “At first the Scotland Yard told me they were going to forensically examine [Ghislaine Maxwell’s] house in London – next thing I hear, just like the FBI, they were not allowed to pursue the investigation. Corruption in the highelevels (sic) of gov,” Giuffre wrote on Twitter this week.
The Met confirmed on Thursday that they had indeed launched a probe, interviewed Guiffe, got advice from the Crown Prosecution Service, and decided the case was out of their jurisdiction to proceed with a full criminal investigation.
We therefore concluded that the MPS (Metropolitan Police Service) was not the appropriate authority to conduct enquiries in these circumstances.
“It was clear that any investigation into human trafficking would be largely focused on activities and relationships outside the UK,” Commander for Specialist Crime Alex Murray said, noting that Scotland Yard once again reviewed its position in 2019 and it remained unchanged.
Giuffre in the meantime doubled down on her accusations against Prince Andrew in the upcoming interview with the BBC, as the Duke of York faces a growing backlash following his own train-wreck interview with Newsnight about his friendship with the US financier.
He knows what happened, I know what happened, and there’s only one of us telling the truth.

Ghislaine Maxwell is at the center of the Epstein controversy, but she’s in hiding. The British socialite friend of Prince Andrew is accused of recruiting girls for the disgraced financier’s sex trafficking ring.
Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of crooked Jewish financier Robert Maxwell,
is accused of recruiting girls for Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking ring.
Prince Andrew’s recent interview about his relationship with the alleged child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein has sparked many questions but one stands out: what happened to Ghislaine Maxwell, the British socialite friend of the prince who is accused of procuring victims for the disgraced financier?
Prince Andrew, Duke of York, the Queen of England’s younger son, admitted ties to Maxwell and Epstein during the bombshell BBC Newsnight interview – while adamantly denying wrongdoing and expressing regret for continued association with Epstein.
Prince Andrew said he met Epstein through Maxwell, the daughter of late media baron Robert Maxwell. Ms Maxwell has vehemently denied allegations of wrongdoing but her current whereabouts are unknown, with media reports placing sightings of her in various cities in the US and Europe.
Epstein killed himself in a Manhattan jail in August, following his arrest on federal sex trafficking charges.
At the center of this controversy is Epstein’s accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who claims Maxwell recruited her to work as his masseuse when she was 15 years old. Giuffre has alleged that a sexual encounter took place with Andrew around 2001, when she was 17.
Giuffre claims Epstein flew her to London on his private jet. After dining with the prince and dancing with him at the Tramp nightclub, she claims, they had a sexual encounter in Maxwell’s Belgravia house.
Prince Andrew stands with Virginia Giuffre while Ghislaine Maxwell smiles in the background. Prince Andrew claims the photo is a fake and that he has no recollection of meeting Virginia.
Posing with his hand around the teen Giuffre was purportedly taken at Maxwell’s home – she is seen smiling in the background. Andrew said in the Newsnight interview he last had contact with Maxwell earlier this year, before Epstein’s arrest.
Multiple women in addition to Giuffre have alleged Maxwell enabled Epstein’s sex trafficking ring, either recruiting them directly or planning visits to his homes.
Yet Maxwell’s fate remains an almost complete mystery. She has not been charged. And while she presently faces civil litigation, the likelihood of a court appearance is unknown. Her last public appearance seems to have been at a Los Angeles fast-food restaurant in August, though doubts have been raised about the veracity of that sighting.
Multiple attorneys listed for Maxwell did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Federal authorities have said the investigation into Epstein’s sex trafficking is ongoing. But, officially, their comment is general and does not relate specifically to Maxwell or anyone else.
Legal opinions about whether Andrew could face legal trouble in the US are split and Maxwell’s potential role in any legal move against the prince is unclear – though she would probably be vital to such a ploy.
Mitchell Garabedian, the Boston lawyer who exposed Catholic clergy sex abuse, said in an email attorneys would want to locate Maxwell in the US, as courts here would have legal power to get her to testify.
“Certainly, given Ms Maxwell’s central role in the Epstein matter, what Ms Maxwell has to say as a witness about Prince Andrew’s involvement will greatly affect the opinions of countless others whether connected to law enforcement or otherwise,” Garabedian wrote.
Asked whether this meant Andrew was exposed to US legal liability, Garabedian said, “It depends on the facts.”
Paul Shechtman, a veteran criminal law attorney who teaches criminal procedure at Columbia University Law School, said that while pursuing a case against Maxwell probably appeals to the federal prosecutors who arrested Epstein, targeting Andrew might not.
“Everything points to the fact that she is a serious subject of the southern district [of New York]’s investigation and at the same time, and for a variety of reasons, I don’t think he is,” Shechtman said.
Authorities would have to prove Andrew knew someone was underage, Shechtman said, and “as a general matter, having sexual relations with someone who’s underage is a state crime and not a federal crime.
“I think his exposure for a federal prosecution is quite small indeed,” he said, adding. “I think he can continue to be a prince.”
Rebecca Roiphe, a professor of law at New York Law School and former assistant district attorney in Manhattan, said Andrew’s links to Maxwell meant he was caught up in the scandal, regardless of his links to Epstein. But that did not necessarily mean he would face charges.
“The mere fact that Prince Andrew was friends with Maxwell and she was allegedly involved in Epstein’s conduct does not itself prove Prince Andrew’s involvement,” she said in an email. “But it certainly raises questions that will affect publicity and in this particular case publicity is, on its own, quite powerful.”
Certainly Andrew’s Newsnight interview was a blow in the global courtroom of public opinion. But amid the fallout from such a catastrophic PR blunder, another uncomfortable fact emerged. With Epstein dead and Maxwell missing, Andrew has become the most public face of an ongoing investigation.
“Of course, if it’s proved that Andrew was involved with Maxwell and Epstein in the alleged criminal acts then he could face criminal liability,” Roiphe continued.
“Prosecutors are eager to hold someone responsible for Epstein’s alleged crimes. Maxwell is an obvious choice now that Epstein is dead but she is unavailable, which may mean that Prince Andrew is high on their list.”
Meanwhile, Epstein’s estate is facing numerous lawsuits from women who say he sexually abused them, many while they were underage. On Monday, a new lawsuit was filed by a woman identified as Jane Doe 15, who alleged that Epstein assaulted her at his New Mexico ranch when she was 15.
“Jane Doe was only 15 years old when Jeffrey Epstein preyed upon her, trafficked her and sexually abused her,” said the accuser’s lawyer, Gloria Allred, at a news conference. “She wants to speak her truth and encourage other underage victims of Jeffrey Epstein who have not yet asserted their legal rights.”
LD: Many big questions swirling round here. Firstly, is Prince Andrew guilty of all the sex charges laid against him?—that he had sex with numerous underage girls thanks to Epstein finding them for him—or is he as spotlessly innocent as he claims? Is a witch hunt being conducted against the prince, and, indirectly, at the Royal Family? Could some interested parties be plotting to bring the British monarchy to an end?
Secondly, did Epstein really commit suicide as claimed or was he strangled to death in his cell? Or is he alive and well in Israel? His death seems extremely suspicious as well as extremely convenient.
Thirdly, how come the Jewish procuress Ghislaine Maxwell has gone missing?—the one person who knows all the grisly secrets of the Epstein scandal and has an address book full of juicy names? Has she done a bunk to Israel? If not, where is she? and why is she in hiding? and is her life in danger?
Many other fascinating questions . . . we may never know the answers . . . interesting times. [LD]
In her defense of the disgraced prince, Campbell pointed to the “prostitution” charge that Jeffrey Epstein was convicted of in 2008, and attempted to downplay the fact that the girls were underage by suggesting that he was simply hiring sex workers.
“You all seem to have forgotten that Jeffrey Epstein, the offense for which he was charged and for which he was imprisoned, was for soliciting prostitution from minors. That is not the same thing as pedophilia,” Campbell told a shocked panel Monday morning.
“If you solicited a 14-year-old for prostitution, you’re a pedophile.
You’re procuring an underage girl for sex. That’s what he was convicted of. I’m sorry, I’m sorry, with respect, that is nonsense.”
Campbell then immediately attempted to backpedal, claiming that a distinction must be made between a minor and a child.
“Was he? 14? Well, I’m not justifying Jeffrey Epstein. Pedophilia, I suspect there’s a difference between a minor and a child,” she said.
“A 14-year-old is a child. Legally, she’s a child,” Morgan replied.
Campbell then admitted that the prince may have “made many mistakes,” but insisted that his only mistake was being too clueless to realize that one of his closest friends was a predator.
“You can’t criticize someone because they aren’t as bright as you would like them to be,” she said.
He also denied knowing about the trafficking victim, Virginia Giuffre—formerly known as Virginia Roberts—despite appearing in photos with her when she was under the age of 18. However, he has previously suggested that these photos are “doctored.” Photographic evidence has been uncovered showing that the prince does, in fact, sweat. He also claimed that even though he did not remember meeting the victim on the night that she said, he does vividly remember his alibi, saying he went to a Pizza Express in Woking before returning home that night.
“Going to Pizza Express in Woking is an unusual thing for me to do, a very unusual thing for me to do. I’ve never been… I’ve only been to Woking a couple of times and I remember it weirdly distinctly,” he said.
The interview was so disastrous for the Royal Family that one of Prince Andrew’s PR advisors quit in response to the broadcast. And to make matters even worse, a video clip from 1984 recently resurfaced showing Johnny Carson, then-host of The Tonight Show, making a joke about Prince Andrew being a pedophile.
None of this looks good for the Royal Family.
(Global Intel Hub) Somewhere, USA — 10/18/2019 — There is no surprise that the Democratic party, the same party funded by Pedophile Kingpin “Pedostein” Jeffrey Epstein, is again involved in a murderous meth fueled tryst by one of their leaders. What’s disturbing though, isn’t Schiff’s homosexual activities, nor his taste for Chocolate – America is a free country and that’s why we have 50+ flavors of ice cream. What’s disturbing is that he’s living 2 lives; by day a ‘Congressman’ and a ‘family man’ and by night, drug induced party time in West Hollywood. Officially, Schiff is under investigation, see the summary from truepundit.com:
Embattled Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff is now the target of a federal investigation focused on the Congressman’s more-than-frequent trips to Ed Buck’s ‘drug house,’ according to a Clinton Whistleblower and insider. Buck is a high-profile, millionaire Democratic benefactor who has contributed and bundled large amounts of cash to Democrats including Schiff, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Kamala Harris and the list goes on and on. Buck was arrested last month after a nearly-dead man escaped from Buck’s home after Buck allegedly plied him with meth. Larry Nichols is the consummate DC insider and operator. In fact, Bill Clinton in his biography described Nichols as a dangerous man. Clinton would know because Nichols spearheaded many of Clinton’s political black-bag Ops in Arkansas and Washington D.C for the Clinton cartel and beyond before he turned whistleblower. Nichols revealed on his weekly news show on CrowdSource the Truth that federal agents have traced Congressman Schiff at Buck’s drug mansion over a dozen times. And now they want to know what Schiff was doing there. “(Attorney General William) Barr is looking into why Adam Schiff was at Buck’s place 16 times,” said insider Larry Nichols. “The reason Barr is obligated to look into Adam Schiff, and the fact that he was there 16 times, is because as a member of Congress if he saw at his time at Buck’s any illegal activity, he is obligated by law to report it. “And if he didn’t report it, then he is guilty of a crime.” Two men previously died at Buck’s mansion from drug overdoses but Buck was never charged by Los Angeles Police. Finally, Buck was charged in Sept. with running a drug house and doping up victims and then allegedly acting out his twisted sexual fantasies on the incapacitated victims, according to prosecutors. Buck targeted homeless men, according to prosecutors.
Just like with the Pedostein case, this is about human trafficking, and who knows what else. Trump has said often “These people are sick” and we are starting to get a sense of how deep and murky the swamp really is. All we know is what evidence the police found and reported. But as stated above, if the police found evidence of drug use and made arrests, how was Schiff not able to see any of this at his 16 visits? Perhaps he’s not a very good detective, he thought all these homeless guys lying around with needles and crack pipes were in fact diabetics ‘vaping’ with some trendy new JUUL tool that looks like a crack pipe. OK, we can give him that. If you don’t know it, maybe you don’t know what it looks like? But if he’s that oblivious to facts, is he then disqualified to be the sole witness, and lead plaintiff, and judge, and jury – in the “Impeachment” trial? One would think, that in the least, his being under investigation for a mysterious murder of Ed Buck (who would have been the most credible witness to what was really going on in West Hollywood at night) would at least be a conflict of interest.
There’s even an article in the failing New York Times about this, although they obviously limit the amount of casual connections made between Schiff and Buck. It’s clear why Schiff is leading the Impeachment coup publicly, because the Democrat strategy since Trump has been elected has been the old “Accuse your opponent of what you are guilty of, and the public will be confused” – this strategy works on brainless idiots and there are many in America. But there are also a lot of smart people, for example Zero Hedge readers – who know the world isn’t as seen on TV. We want to reference another 2 sites of interest – Rense.com with a fascinating columnist Yoichi Shimatsu we have referenced here at the end, and InfoWars.com now operating banned.video (Alex Jones has matured a lot in the last 2 years!) Going back to the story, let’s skip the fact that Schiff was very close with Buck and not only visited this drug den 17 times, they were constantly together at rallies, parties, social events, political fundraisers, and other events. See a photograph as example:
Ed Buck has been proven to be a bad guy. That doesn’t make Schiff a criminal by association. But let’s compare this to the sick and twisted scene of Pedostein, who started the Clinton Global Initiative and Clinton Foundation.
As asked by the LA Times, if they all knew he was a pedo psycho, why did Democrats continue to take his money? If we use Occam’s Razor, the most simple scenario is the correct one: they were close friends. And why does one make friends with Person A instead of Person B? The answer would be common grounds, common hobbies, or a shared predilection for big helpings of Chocolate ice cream. Bingo!
According to Wikipedia: After moving to West Hollywood, California, Buck ran unsuccessfully for city council in 2007. He formerly served on the steering committee of the Stonewall Democratic Club. He has donated “nearly $30,000” to Democratic candidates like Hillary Clinton, Ted Lieu, Pete Aguilar, Adam B. Schiff, and Raja Krishnamoorthi as well as the Getting Things Done PAC.
In civil lawsuits, Buck has been named as a human trafficker, rapist, and performing strange and nearly ‘ritualistic’ acts on homeless men in Los Angeles (mostly black). Does this sound familiar? Spirit cooking anyone? But was Buck really so bad? According to GayCityNews, this is what the police concluded:
An influential-turned-disgraced gay Democratic donor who has been linked to multiple overdose-related deaths of vulnerable black gay men in his Los Angeles home was arrested on September 17 after yet another man overdosed in his home last week, prosecutors in Los Angeles announced. The LA County District Attorney’ s Office said 65-year-old Ed Buck, who has steered many thousands of dollars into the war chests of Democratic candidates over the years, was charged with felony counts of battery causing serious injury, administering meth, and maintaining a drug house after he allegedly injected a man with meth in his West Hollywood apartment on September 11.
Make no mistake Schiff is not a mastermind or an Illuminati leader. He’s a puppet and like all puppets he has a weak spot they can press on. How Pedostein’s blackmail worked was obvious, as is the gay drug den. Who knows how many queer politicians had a romp there while at an LA Democrat convention.
To Trump’s credit, he hasn’t mentioned any of this when he’s been squaring off with Schiff – an honorable tactic but also it’s a smarter plan actually. He’s allowing the swamp to sink in its own filth. Look what happened with CNN – Trump certainly didn’t plan on Project Veritas and the #ExposeCNN event. But now he has evidence for a clear lawsuit against CNN. Perhaps this is what he’s waiting for with Schiff.
It seems like wherever you look into something with this guy, someone is injured, dead, bleeding, or arrested. Even on the comedy show with Steven Colbert, a prank bottle smashing turned bloody, with Colbert being rushed to the nurse:
But there was nothing showbiz about what happened next: The bottle had a sharp edge, and Colbert, slightly wounded, was hurried off to the nurse. Now it’s at this point in the story that an ominous shadow falls over the congressman’s face. “A lot of others have been interviewed on the show, but only one member has actually made him [Colbert] bleed,” Schiff says, his voice ringing with a steely “Dirty Harry” note of pride in the pay back. Colbert’s injury proved to be superficial.
The House Intelligence Committee’s reenactment of the McCarthy hearings dramatized Marx’s famous aphorism that history repeats itself, “the first time as tragedy, the second as farce.” The only thing this circus was lacking was ringmaster Rep. Adam Schiff (D-California”) rising to declares that “I have in my hands a list!” War was on the minds and lips of the Democrats. Rep. Denny Heck (D-Washington) compared Hillary Clinton’s loss to the 9/11 attacks, because the killing of over 2,000 people on American soil is just like the publication of emails that exposed the corruption at the heart of Democratic party politics. Oh, and “the attack didn’t end on Election Day” – because isn’t that a Russian hiding under your bed? If political humor, albeit unintentional, is your shtick, there was plenty of that: my own favorite was Rep. Jackie Speier – from where else but California? – likening Vladimir Putin to a tarantula spider who has “ensnared in his web” a whole list of Trump supporters, including Wilbur Ross, the Commerce Secretary, and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Echoing a common phrase at the hearing, she declared that alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election was “an act of war,” although she gave no hint as to when the shooting will start.
RIP Justin Raimondo, founder of antiwar.com – who had stage 4 lung cancer, and was not murdered. Moving on to other strange coincidences surrounding this creep.
Of course, going with the Democrat ‘accuse your enemies of what you are guilty of’ strategy, as it turns out Schiff has his own Ukraine military contract that he’s been working on for awhile now, with fellow brother of the tribe Igor Pasternak. According to Fox News:
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, who has played a leading role in investigating the Trump-Ukraine scandal, is facing questions about his own connection to a Soviet-born businessman who has raised money for his campaign and whose company has received lucrative defense contracts from Ukraine’s government. That man is Igor Pasternak, the founder and CEO of Worldwide Aeros Corp., which makes blimps for military and commercial customers. His business has also been involved in weapons manufacturing, working with the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense to produce a modified version of the M4 and M16 rifles, according to reports.
But even as you google “Adam Schiff Igor Pasternak” you’re going to get fake news sites like snopes.com and other nonsense. Only Zero Hedge has re-reported this important story, for a full read click here; in summary:
Although the widely-cited 2013 fundraiser was in Washington, D.C., Igor Pasternak’s company headquarters is in Montebello, California, on the east side of Los Angeles. It’s near Schiff’s CA-28 congressional district, which lies to the north of it and encompasses major suburbs like Burbank and a chunk of Glendale. Pasternak started the company in Ukraine in 1992, but immigrated to the U.S. in 1994 and established his California-based company, Aeros/Worldwide Aeros Corporation, shortly thereafter. Aeros makes lighter-than-air (LTA) airships via its Aeroscraft arm. That is its signature niche in the general aviation industry as well as its entrée to defense contracting. Aeros has had contracts with the U.S. Defense Department to develop surveillance airships and cargo-delivery airships. Pasternak, an engineer by training, has had a lifelong interest in what can be done with LTA vehicles. The story about him as it stands right now is that he did little, if anything, in Ukraine in the 20 years between 1994 and 2014 (links below). Then, when the Maidan Revolution erupted in Ukraine in late 2013 and early 2014, he went back to Ukraine and started cultivating ties with the defense industry there. At that point, as is obvious from the document announcing the 2013 fundraiser, Pasternak was already giving aid and comfort to Adam Schiff. In the Ukrainian political sorting after the invasion and partitioning of Crimea, one of the major developments in Kyiv has been reorganizing the government-directed defense industry conglomerate, known by its acronym Ukroboronprom. Ukroboronprom coordinates the arms industry in Ukraine, in the same manner as similar entities in Russia, China, and a number of other countries. Its centralized nature and arms portfolio mean it is always rife with corruption, but at the moment, the point is simply to introduce it to the reader. In the course of establishing project-worthy contacts in Ukraine, Pasternak’s Aeroscraft had a couple of scores that, from the Aeros perspective, were big ones. One is a joint project with an Ukroboronprom subsidiary industry group, Ukroboronservis, to produce a Ukrainian version of the M4 used by the U.S. armed forces (here and here). That project is eye-catching because it involves producing rifles – not something Aeros has had a background in.
Frankly, this is the type of reporting that should be done by CNN and the traditional ‘mainstream’ media. #ExposeCNN and the Project Veritas videos were in many respects a dissapointment; we all knew CNN was a biased creator of left wing conspiracies and propaganda. What it will do however is serve as a single ‘proof’ that Trump’s tweets are not ‘conspiracy theories’ anymore than the fake impeachment is a conspiracy theory. Actually it’s the Democrats who are the authors of ‘conspiracy theories’ such as Osama Bin Laden is responsible for 911, The Fake Trump Impeachment scandal, and a host of others. Anyway, it’s honorable that Project Veritas does this guerilla reporting but it’s shameful that’s what we’ve come to in USA. As we teach, this is the kind of media control exists in countries like Russia, China, and others – where anti-government provocateurs must resort to such ridiculous maneuvers such as hidden cameras. (For an example of a similar political activist in Russia that’s exposing the corruption of the government there in a fair and honest way, see navalny.com translate to English.)
Let’s revisit the question of the connection between Schiff and Buck. 17 visits to an illegal drug den where several young men died, seems in the least unusual. If Buck was simply a donor, why not just collect checks like they do from all the other donors, why the personal visits? American Thinker is thinking the same thing – perhaps Schiff should vet his own donors who have more serious offenses before accusing Trump of anything:
Now there’s Ed Buck, reportedly a pervert with a “thing” for getting young black male prostitutes high through date-rape drugs and involuntary meth injections, with a second dead body turning up in one of his apartments yesterday. The first death a year and a half ago resulted in the cops letting it be called an “accidental” overdose, as gay and lesbian activists argued something worse seemed to be happening. There certainly were cries that Buck was let off easy because of his $53,000 in political donations to Democrats…. Since Schiff is so loud about wanting to “Get Trump,” maybe it’s time for him to start answering some questions about this most important of his campaign donors and why he has allowed himself to go into political debt to such a person.
Now that we’ve examined the facts, let’s take a look at one last anomaly and chatter on the dark web. A helicopter crashed with owners of the Standard Hotel where apparently tons of bad things happened, so the witnesses were killed ‘in an accident’ (these guys know you have to make it look like an accident!)
Schiffs district and dark web says the Standard hotels owners were on the copter. Dark web said the helicopter people had dirt on schiff in secret meetings in the hotel. -Qanon
Here are a list of references to the strange things that go on in the standard hotel, including a stint by none other than Harvey Weinstein THIS LINK HAS MANY REFERENCES AND IS A GOOD RESOURCE .
But we are not the first to out Schiff as a Pedo-dupe. Jerome Corsi did it first:
Jerome Corsi, a right-wing journalist for the conspiracy theory website Infowars, returned to the “Lionel Nation” program today to discuss his latest effort to “decode” the cryptic postings of an anonymous internet user known only as “Q,” which he claimed reveal that Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff may be being blackmailed over alleged involvement in pedophilia. Corsi has recently dedicated himself full-time to covering the cryptic postings of an anonymous 8Chan forum board poster known as “Q,” whom some right-wing activists believe to be a high-ranking official within the Trump administration—or possibly even President Trump himself. Q’s posts are at the center of a fringe right-wing conspiracy theory known as “The Storm,” which alleges that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election is really a cover for President Trump’s efforts to take down thousands of corrupt political, business and entertainment leaders who are part of a massive satanic pedophile ring. Relying on recent posts from Q, Corsi attempted to tie Schiff, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee and leading critic of a recently released memo regarding surveillance of a Trump campaign adviser, to the sprawling conspiracy theory. Corsi alleged that Schiff had ties to three people who died in a recent helicopter crash, all of whom were “associated with the Standard Hotel, a trendy, gay-friendly hotel located in Schiff’s district in West Hollywood, California.” Offering absolutely no evidence to substantiate anything he said, Corsi reported that “a pedophilia ring” was being run out of this hotel and now “you’ve got Schiff being involved, perhaps, with blackmail, there is possibly pedophilia, all of which has been suggested by QAnon as the subject of research.”
Now here is where things get interesting. So we know that the deep-state is tied to the Occult. If Schiff does have something dirty to hide in his hometown district, or a secret predilection of Chocolate, this would be a legitimate reason to use him as a pawn. He’s likely being blackmailed (Not to be confused with BlackMaled) which explains his brash and irrational behavior. Probably he’s been tasked to ‘get it done, Impeach him – whatever the cost’ or we’re going to let loose all the facts of your dirty secrets.
Pedo ring human trafficking at hotel, Adam shiftys district, he knew, he’s trying to cut a deal cause he knows he’s grass.
The intel just dropped is bigger than you can imagine.
Is there a connection here with Democrat Megadonors and weird Occult practices? According to Washington Examiner (which has advertising for the candidates that Buck gave money to) :
A criminal complaint by federal investigators against Edward Buck outlines claims of a history of predatory behavior against gay men by the LGBT activist and Democratic megadonor, resulting in rape, drug overdoses, and even deaths.
Although Buck is currently only being charged with distribution of methamphetamine resulting in death, the 20-page filing by authorities describes numerous instances of vulnerable gay men, many black, who found themselves drugged against their will and sodomized. Most of the nine men who spoke to investigators say they were initially lured to Buck’s residence on promises of money and free drugs.
The news agency “Washington Examiner” has an article about Ed Buck titled “Slave Master” and underneath the title, an ad for Kamala Harris, who took money from Slave Master. In the ad, it says Harris will be a ‘tough prosecutor’ – why was Ed Buck not vetted and/or prosecuted?
We know the answer, the “Deep State” is mostly infested by Illuminati Occultists that practice, in secret, bizarre and disturbing rituals. If these rituals were done legally in the confines of their own homes, perhaps it could be overlooked. But when the powers behind these dark forces are attempting to start a Coup in America, we should be extremely alarmed. This is now a pattern, following the outing of deep-state blackmailer and dark ops operative Jeffrey “Pedostein” Epstein.
Adam, this song’s for you…

Exclusive to Rense
This far into impeachment poker, the cards are down and dirty as so’s Adam Schiff in his closet gay playground in West Hollywood. The head of the Senate Intelligence Committee turns out to be a back-door man on the receiving end when it comes to secret weapons shipments to Ukraine and a helicopter crash arranged to cover-up his role in the death of a black gay lover in West Hollywood. Recently returned from a long stint in East Asia, I’ve been surprised, although not stunned, to discover Schiff’s bug eyes must’ve have protruded due to those L.A. rams, the black sheep with the rough trade out of Maxine Waters’ district of Compton and Watts, aka Pizzagate West.
The home-field for the Ukraine controversy is inextricably linked to drugged-out interracial gay homicides in Southern California, as exemplified by his fellow Democrat Ed Buck, pinned to the meth-overdose deaths of three black male sex partners, and as we discover more recently Congressman Adam Schiff, who is suspected of arranging the disposal by acid bath of a black gay lover flushed into the sewer at the Standard Hotel in West Hollywood. Further below Schiff’s criminal ties with a Jewish Ukrainian gun-runner, a Democratic Party funder whose fleet of airships conduct 24X7 surveillance over the US-Mexico border without any objections from the Dem Hispanic caucus or AOC-plus-3. California’s the hip place, as in hypocrisy.
The R44 Raven helicopter that crashed on three houses in Newport Beach shortly before 2 p.m. on 30 January 2018 did not emit a distress signal, according to the FAA, as it tumbled out of the sky a mile from takeoff at John Wayne Airport. The three passengers killed en route to Catalina Island were Kimberly Lynn Watzman, manager of the Standard Hotel in West Hollywood; Brian Reichelt, the hotel chain’s regional financial manager; and Spain-born Joseph Anthony Tena, CEO of the Ferrada Group, which owned shares in the Standard Hotels chain. Tena’s business partner was Andre Balazs, the founder of the Standard Hotel chain and a pioneer in high-end boutique hotels.
The helicopter had been inspected by an FAA team during the past summer resulting in installation of new parts, meaning the helicopter was in good condition. The 4-seat Robinson-built aircraft was leased by Revolution Aviation, a local flight school and touring company, from Eric Spitzer, who owns 70 helicopters operated out of Riverside County, who otherwise has zero biographical record or company history.
Another Jewish Predator
Which gets to Andre Balazs, who is the son of Endre Balazs, a Hungarian Jew who resided unscathed in Budapest, just like George Soros and his father, while conducting “medical research” throughout the Nazi period before moving in 1947 to Stockholm and then on to Harvard, Boston Biomedical and then Columbia Presbyterian hospital. Andre’s first job was as press secretary to the sex scandal mired Bess Meyerson, the postwar Jewish poster girl. Living off his father’s fortune from developing hyalauric acid for knee-joint problems, Andre patronized heroin-addicted artist Andy Warhol and invested in the 1980s Manhattan dinner club M.K. and the LA supper club, b.c., where the main item off the menu was a line of cocaine.
Then in the late-1980s, Balazs founded the Standard chain, a thinly covered establishment for bonking Craig’s List girls and Tinder dates and being bonked by rough boys. All along, he cultivated a reputation for public groping that rivals Harvey Weinstein and Jeffrey Epstein, likely to cover a growing connoisseurship for the gay lifestyle, as expressed in the aesthetics of his Standard operations in California and the Chiltern Firehouse hotel in London.
Balazs, with his connections to drug lords and foreign politicians, including many from Israel, had Adam Schiff by the balls after the death of a young black male in the West Hollywood Standard. Hotel manager Kim Waltzman, 47 years old at the time of the helicopter crash, was an adventurer who loved nothing more than traveling to remote parts of the world and stood to gain early retirement by squeezing Balazs with the threat of exposing Schiff’s murderous “accident” in a Standard bed. Thereafter the helicopter jaunt to Catalina Island with the corporate financial officer Brian Reichelt, aboard to sign the nondisclosure agreement on behalf of Balazs, does make perfect sense, and so does the mysterious crash that killed both of them.
Ed Buck was not as lucky as Schiff, mainly because he injected his homeless black victims inside his own living room in West Hollywood’s gay quarters. Now get this: Buck, Schiff and California Democratic Party Chair Eric Baum were simultaneously board members of the Stonewall Democratic Club, the LGBT political caucus. The predilection for dark meat makes Pizzagate West more rancid than the original cheesy sausage-filled Podesta concoction, although both scandals involve the same players Marina Abramovic and Jimmy Alefantis in hipster Balatz’s social circle. Tony Podesta hosted a 2009 fund-raising reception for Adam Schiff at this art-packed home in Washington D.C.
Dragon UFOs over Ukraine
Out next East European Jewish high-flyer on the Schiff List is his constituent and campaign fundraiser Igor Pasternak, the Ukrainian gun-runner and blimp producer for DARPA and CIA special ops. Congressman Schiff’s Igor is a major investor, tech transfer agent and delivery service for UkrOboronProm (UOP), a Ukrainian arms company, which produces automatic rifles based on the AR-15 called the WAC-47 for use by the armies of Ukraine, Poland and Lithuania, even though it’s street-illegal in America, you shifty Democrat supports of gun control! Considering the history of Ukrainian arms-transfers, it won’t be long before the WAC-47 will be whacking villagers in Africa and Latin America. The Obama-era Pentagon financed the design and production of this assault rifle with ammo compatible with the M-16 and NATO firearms in order to wean the Ukrainians off their home-built AK-47s.
Igor Pasternak’s blimp company Worldwide Aeros, based at the U.S. Marine Corps airfield in Tustin, CA (near San Bernadino), has received millions in grants from DARPA and other Pentagon agencies to develop an airship used for surveillance on the borders of Ukraine-Russia and Mexico-USA, another excellent achievement for Democrat hypocrisy. Who needs a wall when sky “Dragons” as these military airships are called suffice as infrared camera mounts and, when the right time comes, firing platforms for Gatling guns. Do you recall all the news stories about UFOs snake-dancing in the night sky? Those are Aeros Dragons, linked together like flying train cars.
The 2013 campaign fundraiser for Rep. Adam Schiff at the Montebello mansion of Igor Pasternak, with donations by the invited starting at S2,500, is by now infamous, an outright payback from an arms dealer in exchange for contracts from the Defense Department. Schiff is well-known in Southern California as a Pentagon slut, connecting the military, NSA and CIA with the Pasadena-based defense contractor Parsons Corporation. Among its finest achievements under a U.S. government contract was to decommission the Libyan chemical-weapons facilities, which were dismantled for export to Ukraine, while barrels of lethal product ended up in the hands of ISIS rebels in Syria. Parsons botched a Pentagon contract in the wake of the Iraq invasion to build dozens of medical clinics, completing only two centers, both beset by basic design flaws, and then absconding with the money.
After mismanagement of a road construction project for CalTrans (Calfornia State’s transportation authority), Parsons fell into a deep financial hole but was saved through lucrative DARPA contracts arranged by Rep. Schiff, enabling takeovers of taxpayer-funded DARPA spin-offs Polaris Alpha (artificial intelligence command of complex battlefields), QRC (AI for special operations and Navy SEALS). and OGSystems (imaging and data analytics). These transactions for lethal weaponry in Ukraine and here in the USA prove with an iota of doubt that Adam Schiff is a merchant of death, the Joker himself who is now out to character-assassinate President Donald Trump.
Yet there is one death that still haunts him, the young black man who suffered a drug-induced seizure while pumping the congressman’s rump at the Standard Hotel, just a few blocks from the home of Ed Buck.
What’s in a Surname?
Before ridding my desktop of all traces of Adam the Shifty, allow me to examine the family names Schiff and Pasternak in my usual manner of leaving no obscure detail untended.
Rep. Adam Schiff is not a descendant of the war-criminal banker Jacob Shiff whose family was based in Frankfurt, Germany, as part of the occult movement led by Jacob Frank, which explains the congressman’s constant money-grubbing from the vilest sort of funders in exchange for services rendered. His family origins are in Vilnius, Lithuania, a long-time historical center for anti-Russian warmongering. This anti-Russian campaign of invasion and subversion came to a head with the appearance of the third “False Dimitry”, a Lithuanian Jewish vagabond who claimed to be Tsar Dimitry Ivanovich. The bold-faced liar rallied Cossacks to his cause with the promise of looting the cathedral of Moscovy, then ruled by the Tatar paladin Boris Gudonov. The Jewish faker send cavalrymen to assassinate the legitimate Russian ruler, Mikhail the founder of the Romanov dynasty. After falling out of God’s grace, Dimitry was captured and then executed, his physical remains scattered to prevent his brain-washed followers from worshiping his bones. This is a parable for the mind-addled Democrats who accept all the falsehoods from Adam Schiff’s mouth. They who deceive spin the lies you believe.
Igor Pasternak’s surname has resonance being that of Boris Pasternak, author of “Dr. Zhivago”, the romantic tale of love (with the fallen heroine Lara). Aside from this novel, which perhaps did not deserve a Nobel Prize due to its retrogressive sentimentality, author Pasternak translated the works of Goethe, the leading Illuminati of the 19th century who warned of his youthful obsession with sorcery in the novel “Faust”. The Russian writer was involved in Russian Futurism, a movement whose painters indulged in the Goethe-Illuminati theory of light and colors, reflection being a core concept of Luciferian reception (of inner light).
The Grand Lodge of the Orient headquartered in France had a widespread Russian following in lodges since at least the mid-19th century among Russian officers returning from the post-Napoleonic occupation of Paris.The Grand Lodge of Ukraine was revived in the mid-1980s by Juliano di Bernardo, the grand master of the Italian Grand Lodge of the Orient and later received recognition from the central Grand Lodge of the Orient. The rationalist Freemasons in the English-speaking realm may have misgivings about the strange doctrines of the Grand Lodge of the Orient (meaning the East, in the direction of Morning Star, Lucifer) and their deep dark secrecy is due to the fact that the Grand Orient lodge does not stipulate belief in God or the Deity as the Supreme Being, as do American and British lodges, but instead worships Lucifer as the ruler of the Universe.
Igor Pasternak, although born in Soviet Kazahkstan, probably of a Jewish family evacuated by Stalin to Siberia, is not a descendant of the illustrious Pasternak clan of Moscow, but is a normal grubby Odessa Jew. The surname translates from Russian as “parsnip”, a white carrot. His interest in “lighter than air” vehicles is not original or new, since the former USSR designed and constructed dozens of dirigibles before and during World War II. Like his Russian and Ukrainian predecessors, Pasternak has followed a “crash and burn” model of development, causing delays and cost overruns that forced him into gun-running and hustling his local congressman for defense contracts. If the mishaps at liftoff continue, Igor Pasternak could soon end up like Schiff’s black stud, down the drain.
Ed Buck Democrat gay rights leader and money man, whose West Hollywood meth drug den was the scene of not one, but two overdose deaths of black men is finally locked up.
Why did it take so long?
Because of the elitist white male, California politicians who deliberately sabotaged and prolonged the investigation for over two years. A Los Angeles Federal Judge has set a tentative trial date of November 26th.

Is this conclusive proof that the UK Monarchy is guilty of pedophilia?
Our initial video analysis suggests that it has not been manipulated through the use of a CGI program, nor was it cut, or mishmashed using multiple videos from different scenes.
There have been multiple arrests of pedophiles of UK origins and from other countries in the Philippines. But to have something like this takes the issue to a whole new level.
What’s your take on this?
(TMU) — Virginia Roberts Giuffre, a vocal Jeffrey Epstein accuser, just went to New York for a bombshell new interview.
During the interview for 60 Minutes Australia that took her to the steps of Epstein’s $56 million Manhattan mansion which she said represents “jail” to her, Giuffre, who now lives in Australia, insists Prince Andrew “should go to jail.”
“Being a kid, I didn’t realize what world I was being brought into,” she explains. “There wasn’t a part of my body that they did not abuse.”
During the short promo for the piece that airs this Sunday, Giuffre says that she “was trafficked to other billionaires” and “to other politicians.”
“It was the elite of the world.”
David Boies, Giuffre’s attorney, says Epstein ran an “international sex trafficking operation,” referring to it as a “well-oiled machine.”
“There are many, many people that have serious culpability and I expect a number of them will be prosecuted.”
During the teaser posted on social media, Giuffre holds up the notorious photograph of Prince Andrew and herself (at the age of 17) together at a party thrown by Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, saying “this is a real photo.” Without mincing words, Giuffre declares, “Prince Andrew should go to jail.”
Giuffre has previously alleged that she was forced to sleep with the Duke of York three times.
While Andrew cannot deny his relationship with the convicted pedophile, he continues to deny claims that he was involved in the sex trafficking ring or had any knowledge whatsoever that his friend was a criminal.
In a statement from August, Buckingham Palace said:
“His Royal Highness deplores the exploitation of any human being and the suggestion he would condone, participate in or encourage any such behavior is abhorrent.”
“Only one of us is telling the truth. And it will come out,” Giuffre says.
“This is a real photo. That is Andrew,” Giuffre insists before host Tara Brown brings up past accusations that the image is fake.
In a 2011 testimony, Giuffre insisted that Prince Andrew “knows the truth” about the abuse of underage girls at the hands of Jeffrey Epstein. However, in 2015 a court declared the allegations were “immaterial and impertinent,” ordering them to be struck out of a defamation claim against Maxwell.
Maxwell has been repeatedly accused of assisting Epstein in recruitment and abuse of girls trafficked into the elite pedophile ring, but has continued to deny any wrongdoing.
In an interview with NBC that aired in September, Giuffre said of Maxwell:
“The first time in London, I was so young. Ghislaine woke me up in the morning and she said, ‘You’re gonna meet a prince today.’ I didn’t know at that point that I was going to be trafficked to that prince.”
Guiffre went on to explain that later that night, after Prince Andrew gave her alcohol while together at a club, the teen found herself in a car “with Ghislaine and Jeffrey, and Ghislaine said, ‘He’s coming back to the house. And I want you to do for him what you do for Epstein.’ I couldn’t believe it.”
Also in September, John Mark Dougan, a former Florida cop claiming to have incriminating evidence of Prince Andrew, accused the FBI of covering up the Duke of York’s role in the massive scandal. Dougan, who is also a former Marine, told the Times of London:
“I’m certain the FBI is involved in some kind of cover-up over Epstein.
That could absolutely include Andrew’s role …”
Of the others connected to the elite pedophile ring Guiffre tells Brown during the brief promo:
“They should be named. And they should be shamed.”
In a video clip released by conservative group Project Veritas on Tuesday, ABC News anchor Amy Robach is caught on a “hot mic” speaking to colleagues at the news desk. Robach reveals that she had been contacted by Virginia Roberts (Giuffre), who alleges Epstein used her as a sex slave, and pimped her out to his powerful friends, including Britain’s Prince Andrew.
“I’ve had this interview with Virginia Roberts…we would not put it on the air,” Robach says on camera. “First of all, I was told ‘who’s Jeffrey Epstein.’ Then the Palace found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways.”
She told me everything. She had pictures, she had everything. It was unbelievable what we had. We had Clinton, we had everything.
Former President Bill Clinton was among those who traveled multiple times on Epstein’s private jet, dubbed the “Lolita Express.” As well as Clinton and Prince Andrew, Robach claims that lawyer Alan Dershowitz was implicated in Roberts’ testimony.
Robach says that she tried to convince her bosses to air her story for three years, but “to no avail.”
“And now it’s all coming out and it’s like these new revelations, and I freaking had all of it. What we had was unreal.”
Epstein was found dead in his cell in New York’s Metropolitan Correctional Center in August, where he was awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges. His death was ruled a suicide, with the city’s chief medical examiner determining the sex offender hung himself from his bunk bed in the cell.
Reports that Epstein had been taken off suicide watch two days earlier, and that the guards on watch left him unsupervised for longer than usual fuelled rumors that foul play was afoot. Epstein’s connections to high profile political and business figures led many to speculate that the mogul was murdered.
When New York’s former chief medical examiner, Dr. Michael Baden, claimed last month that Epstein’s wounds were more consistent with “homicidal strangulation” than suicide, the mystery was revived again, and the internet was flooded with “Epstein didn’t kill himself” memes and comments.
Robach said she believes “100 percent” Epstein was murdered.
Do I think he was killed? A hundred percent, yes I do. He made his whole living blackmailing people… There were a lot of men in those planes, a lot of men who visited that island, a lot of powerful men who came into that apartment.
When Epstein died, the case against him died too, as the financier was the sole defendant. A group of Epstein’s accusers and alleged victims have called on prosecutors to keep the case open, arguing that his associates – including girlfriend and alleged trafficking partner Ghislaine Maxwell – could also be culprits.
“Please, please finish what you have started … we all know he did not act alone,” accuser Sarah Ransome told a court hearing in New York in August. “We are all survivors, and the pursuit of justice should not abate.”
It would seem that the normies/ sheeple of the world have not batted an eye at the fact that 13 wealthy celebrities and one royal have all died in the same manner in the past few years, under very similar and bizarre circumstances.
Perhaps this is because the mainstream media refuses to report on their connections to elite pedophilia rings which tie directly to powerful people in Washington, Hollywood, and the mainstream media. People on the last presidential ticket in fact.
14 independent and highly successful people with careers and influence hanged themselves on doorknobs. DOORKNOBS!!!
My first question is: How the hell does one hang themselves from a doorknob? Followed by: How common is this? Do people hang themselves from doorknobs regularly and I’m just now finding out about it? Is there a doorknob suicide club the rest of us aren’t aware of?
Well, the answer to that last question is “yes.” One need only substitute the word “suicide” with “murder.” Or simply use the word “suicide” in the past tense while maintaining its usage as a verb.
In order of “Suiciding” they are as follows:
1) Michael Hutchence – 37
INXS frontman Michael Hutchence’s body was found hanging from a doorknob in Room 524 at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Double Bay, Sydney. The occupant in the neighboring room heard an unidentified loud male voice and swearing at around 5 AM; the coroner was satisfied that this was Hutchence arguing with another male.
On February 6th, 1998, after an autopsy and coronial inquest, New South Wales State Coroner, Derrick Hand, presented his report ruling that Hutchence’s death was a suicide.
According to reports, Hutchence had information regarding a “VIP pedophile ring” in the UK that was connected to child-killing rapist Jimmy Saville and high-ranking politicians.
It should be noted that this was the first “suicide” of the 12 and began on the same day of the year JFK was assassinated. November, 22. Of course, the reason for this is because 11/22 add up to 33.
A numerical masonic/ occultic calling card to be sure. Hutchence’s age also adds up to 10 or “1”. Visit my numbers study page for more info on this.
2) David Carradine – 72
Perhaps the most occultic murder of them all. Hollywood actor David Carradine was found dead in his room at the Swissôtel Nai Lert Park Hotel on Wireless Road, near Sukhumvit Road, in central Bangkok, Thailand. He was there shooting his latest film, titled Stretch. Really? Stretch?
A police official said that Carradine was found naked, hanging by a rope tied to the doorknob of the room’s closet leading them to believe his death was suicide. However, later reports suggested that his death was accidental, the result of autoerotic asphyxiation.
Two autopsies were conducted, one involving the celebrity pathologist Pornthip Rojanasunan, and both concluded that the death was not a suicide. The cause of death became widely accepted as “accidental asphyxiation.” Carradine’s lawyer Vicki Roberts went on record stating: “I believe there may have been foul play.”
Reports around the time of his death suggest that Carradine may have been involved in child sex tourism; a rampant issue in Thailand where he was found. If he was involved in pedophilia, could he have been connected to a wider network of Hollywood elite pedophiles?
Here we have the almighty “72”. If ever there was a more complete and hermetic number for ritual work this is it. Of course, what better way throw collective common sense out the window than to write a sex scandal into the narrative. “Death by erotic asphyxiation.”
I’m calling Bullshit on that. Was Carradine into the Pedo scene? It sure seems like there are more than a few connections. Unlike other people on this list, he wasn’t in the process of attempting to out anyone at the time of his death.
3) Alexander McQueen – 40
The first of 3 fashion designers on this list, McQueen was found in the AM, hanging from a doorknob by his housekeeper at his home in Green Street, London where paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene. Metropolitan Police stated that the note McQueen left was not suspicious, however, they did not confirm that his death was a suicide.
Photos of McQueen’s fashion shows. It’s obvious that McQueen was in the thick of it and made a regular habit of signaling his allegiance. As an occultist, I can tell you that the attention to detail and themes portrayed in his shows were beyond that of casual decor. They ran deep.
4) Annabelle Neilson, 49
Muse of Alexander McQueen and the ex-wife of elite banker Nataniel Rothschild has been found dead at her home in Chelsea, London.
(She died in July 2018, but I thought it’s important to include her right after Alexander McQueen).
I will include the original report below:
49-year-old Annabelle Neilson’s body was discovered hanging from a doorknob in the bathroom of her $4.1 million mansion on Thursday, but news of her sudden and tragic death has only just been made public.
Police have yet to confirm the cause of her death, and haven’t ruled out drug or alcohol use, but say they are “not treating it as suspicious.”
Neilson was previously married to Nathaniel Rothschild – son of Lord Jacob Rothschild and heir to his family’s fortune – for three years after a six-year relationship.
After divorcing Rothschild she was reportedly forced to sign a confidentiality agreement and rescind the dynastic name.
Since splitting with the banking heir, she was in an extremely close relationship with fashion designer Alexander McQueen who also died in eerily similar circumstances to Neilson.
McQueen’s death was announced on the afternoon of 11 February 2010.
In the morning, his housekeeper found him hanging from a doorknob at his home in Green Street, London W1.
Annabelle Neilson was supposedly the last person to see McQueen alive and she was left devastated by his death.
As soon as people online have noticed that she allegedly killed herself in the same manner as her close friend and confidant, Alexander McQueen, the internet has been whitewashed and the true cause of her death covered up.
Originally, we were told she was found hanging by a red scarf from a doorknob in her bedroom, but later we were told that she died from a cerebrovascular accident or a heart attack.
5) Aaron Swartz – 26
Tech pioneer, and Reddit co-founder, Aaron Swartz was found dead in his Brooklyn apartment by his partner, Taren Stinebrickner-Kauffman. A spokeswoman for New York’s Medical Examiner reported that he had hanged himself from a doorknob. No suicide note was found.
According to former-CIA agent Robert Steele, Swartz hacked into MIT Computers and found a huge stash of Child Pornography shortly before his death.
Another numerologically significant date. Jan, 11th is “1/11” and this number has a few meanings. first, 111 is 3 “1’s” or 3. Master Mason is the 3rd degree. It is also the first 11 of the year. 11 symbolizes the pillars of Boaz and Jachin which sat at the entrance to King Solomon’s Temple.
11 is also the first number after “10” which is the most perfect number and represents ILLUMINATION.”
“11” represents imperfection in government because it is one number short of 12, which symbolizes a perfect theocratic government.
Satanists love to utilize this dystopian number in their ritual work. Of course, the triple and quadruple “1’s” holds extreme significance in pop culture as a number everyone seems to notice regularly.
At first, the numerology surrounding this murder seems a little overkill, no pun intended. 11 is quite a powerful and significant number to utilize when weaving into a ritual. But upon a closer examination of Aaron’s life, we realize that his death was most certainly to be used as an example to other budding geniuses.
Although Aaron no doubt more than likely had incriminating files of the elite pertaining to pedophilia he was also the spearhead of a movement to bring and maintain freedom of speech and presence on the Internet.
The internet HAS replaced TV and IS the default platform for the human species at this point. Aaron posed a real threat to this.
6) L’Wren Scott – 49
Our second fashion designer on the list is L’Wren Scott, long-time lover of Mick Jagger and (former girlfriend of Nate Rothschild) was found dead by her assistant at her apartment in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan on March 17, 2014.
The police reported that no note was found and there was no sign of foul play. The New York City Chief Medical Examiner determined Scott’s manner and cause of death to be “suicide by hanging.”
I wonder what sort information concerning the underbelly of sex, privilege, and decadence the ex-girlfriend of a Rothschild and mega rockstar would be privy to which would either put her at jeopardy for elimination or make her want to kill herself? And the fact that I’m not buying the whole “death by doorknob suicide” Bullshit, I’m guessing she was silenced.
7) Robin Williams – 63
Williams died at his home in Paradise Cay, California. The initial report released on August 12, the Marin County Sheriff’s Office deputy coroner stated Williams had hanged himself after he was found hanging from a doorknob with a necktie.
The final autopsy report, released on November 2014, ruled that Williams had committed suicide by hanging himself from the doorknob. Neither alcohol nor illegal drugs were involved, while all prescription drugs present in his body were at “therapeutic” levels, the coroner declared.
Williams had been a part of the Hollywood scene for so long, nearly anything one can imagine could possibly be true. There’s a 100% chance Williams rubbed elbows with everyone in the Hollywood scene at one time or another and was exposed to everything Hollywood had to offer.
The question is: How deep was he into the scene? Decades of cocaine and partying can lead to some pretty dark places. He most certainly knew the dirty secrets of Henry Weinstein and his ilk, but what most people forget is that these celebrities cross over into politics quite often and support the agendas of democrat candidates regularly. This is where we get into “brownstonin.”
Hollywood insider and whistleblower Jon Robberson has chimed in on the Hollywood pedophile sex rings. He recently made statements in an interview regarding his belief that Robin Williams was most likely blackmailed into making the film Patch Adams.
And would do we make the Family Guy predictive programming which transpired shortly before Robin’s death? It’s obvious that Seth McFarlane has a hand in the mechanics of these rituals.
8) Chris Cornell – 52
Cornell was found unconscious by his bodyguard, hanging from the doorknob in the bathroom of his hotel room at the MGM Grand in Detroit, after performing at a show with Soundgarden at the Fox Theatre on May 17. He was lying on the floor with an exercise band around his neck and blood in his mouth.
An MGM medic and EMS personnel were unable to revive Cornell. Cornell was pronounced dead by a doctor at 1:30 a.m. Police ruled out homicide by reviewing a hotel surveillance video, which showed nobody entering or exiting the suite after his bodyguard left at around 11:35 p.m. The cause of death was determined to be “suicide by hanging.”
Cornell’s death is surrounded by rumors that he was about to expose key players in the DC pedophile ring known as pizza gate.
It’s no secret that Cornell and Chester Bennington, (Next on this list) died two months later the exact same way, had begun an organization to help at-risk children. Chester Bennington as you will learn is the son of John Podesta. You can’t make this stuff up.
Several have questioned what they say are gaps in the timeline. The police report says the bodyguard was in Cornell’s hotel room at 11:30 p.m. to help the star with the victim’s “computer, which was not working at that time.”
It says Vicky Cornell talked to her husband at 11:35 p.m., and, alarmed by what she heard, she phoned the bodyguard to ask him to check on her husband. He told police he went to Cornell’s room at 12:15 a.m. Some question the apparent 40-minute gap between the start of Vicky’s conversation with her husband and the bodyguard’s welfare check at his room.
Assistant Wayne County Medical Examiner Theodore Brown said that upon a visual examination, “no pills were found in the stomach,” according to his report. But there’s no indication in the toxicology report that Cornell’s stomach was tested to determine the level of drugs there since only the blood sample is cited.
Cornell also had nine broken ribs discovered at his autopsy. The official explanation was that the medics broke his ribs trying to resuscitate him using CPR. An in-depth article on the investigation can be found here.
9) Chester Bennington – 41
Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington was found dead at his home in Palos Verdes Estates, California; his housekeeper discovered his body hanging from a doorknob around 9:00 a.m. His death was officially ruled as suicide.
On July 21, Brian Elias, the chief of operations for the office of the medical examiner-coroner, confirmed that a half-empty bottle of alcohol was found at the scene, but no other drugs were present.
Believing himself to be a victim of child abuse, Chester Bennington was working with his best friend Cornell to expose a high-reaching child trafficking network.
But to say that Bennington believed himself to be a victim of child abuse is like stating that Adolf Hitler was simply a charismatic politician. Good lord this rabbit hole runs deep.
The band’s logo was a broken version of the triangle used in pedophile networks. There is no doubt that Bennington’s entire existence was consumed by the ritualistic sexual abuse he sustained at the hands of John Podesta, who is rumoured to have been his biological father.
What are the odds that two best friends who are about to expose a DC pedophile ring of which one of the friend’s father was at the heart of died in the exact same bizarre manner and that the second want to die did so two months later on his best friend’s birthday?
There is no doubt that Bennington would’ve struck at the heart of this DC pedophile ring more than likely bringing down Podesta, Hillary Clinton, and their networks. After all, he had the DNA to corroborate his claim. I don’t think Bennington knew just how much danger he was in.
10) Avicii – 28
Swedish DJ Avicii, real name Tim Bergling, died on 20 April 2018 near Muscat, Oman, at the age of 28. No cause of death was immediately given. On 21 April, the Omani police stated that there was “no criminal suspicion” or evidence of foul play in Bergling’s death.
On 26 April, his family released an open letter stating that Bergling “really struggled with thoughts about meaning, life, happiness. He could not go on any longer.” On 1 May, TMZ reported that the cause of death was a suicide due to self-inflicted injuries.
Although full details of his death were not released, TMZ reports that he suffered cuts from broken glass along with neck injuries. Although it is unclear what the injuries to his neck were, it could have been caused by asphyxiation and hanging has not been ruled out.
After his death, it emerged that Avicii was working to expose an elite pedophile ring. One of his videos began to recirculate in which he attempts to expose child trafficking.
In 2015 Avicii did release a video for his song “For a Better Day” where he shows child sex tracking taking place and two girls that escape from a man trying to capture them. The video later reveals that the two girls seek revenge on the ‘elite’ that were running this pedophile operation:
Did Avicii have the clout and influence to help wake up an entire generation to the horrors of institutionalized and ritualistic pedophilia and our global governments and institutions? Or was he simply ritual fodder?
11) Kate Spade – 55
Our third fashion designer on this list is Kate Spade. Also linked to the Clintons Spade was found dead hanging by the neck from a doorknob in her Manhattan apartment. It is been said that “buying a Kate Spade handbag was a coming-of-age ritual for a generation of American women.” It’s obvious that’s not the only ritual going on here.
A note found at the scene was addressed in the Spade’s 13-year-old daughter indicating that what happened was not the child’s fault. Miss Spade’s entrance into the dark world of privilege and decadence was when she met her husband to be, the brother of actor and comedian David Spade.
According to a Clinton Foundation DOCUMENT, Kate Spade was among a group that traveled to Haiti on behalf of the Clinton Foundation. She was part of the foundation’s initiative to foster “economic growth, support small businesses, and empower girls and women.”
There’s no doubt that Spade, who seems like a generally good person came across the same information regarding the Clinton foundation Haitian child sex trafficking network that got Monica Peterson killed (by the Clintons?).
ALSO RELATED. Most believe that Klaus Eberwein, a former Haitian government official was also “SUICIDED” in his Miami motel one day prior to testifying in court. Eberwein was scheduled to appear Tuesday before the Haitian Senate’s Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission.
No doubt the topic of child sex trafficking and the Clintons was on the agenda. As a side note. Klaus was also a partner in a popular pizza restaurant in Haiti, Muncheez, and has a pizza — the Klaus Special — named after him.
Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of Bill and Hillary Clinton, paid tribute to the fashion designer via Twitter. “My grandmother gave me my first Kate Spade bag when I was in college. I still have it. Holding Kate’s family, friends and loved ones in my heart.”
Equally as strange as Kate Spade hanging herself with a red scarf from a doorknob was the reaction of her husband shortly after the incident. Two days after Kate hanged herself from a doorknob with a red scarf Andy Spade was videotaped walking around in public wearing a mouse mask with a red scarf and newspaper hat.
It was actually the mask of one of the characters from the classic Disney cartoon The Avengers. This is some strange behavior which doesn’t fit into any box. Who the hell just happens to have an Avengers mouse mask laying around the house? NO!!!
In my opinion, this was a public self-humiliation ritual. A nod, a message, signaling of subservience to the Clintons or whoever had Kate killed that he understands and will be playing ball.
There is defiantly a much deeper story here which will never be told.
12) Queen Maxima’s sister Ines Zorreguieta – 33
Do we even need to mention she was killed at 33? Dutch Queen Maxima’s sister Ines Zorreguieta (The only royalty on this list) was found dead in Argentina last year.
Zorreguieta, 33, was found dead by a friend who discovered her body hanging from a doorknob in her apartment in the Almagro district of Buenos Aires. Police said the autopsy report would be available in a week but did not suspect foul play.
According to reports, Zorreguieta was connected to high-level elites involved in child trafficking. Queen Maxima stepped down after allegations of her involvement in “hunts” where children were raped and massacred by her dinner guests. Some speculators believe she may have been “silenced” before she could go public about a cabal-connected pedophile ring.
European royalty, especially the Dutch have a long history of being accused of not only engaging in pedophilia but hunting killing and eating children. If you’re a normie this may seem shocking, but for those of us in the trenches, this information is not new.
David Icke has been screaming from the rooftops about this for over three decades and it’s just now starting to get attention. Do your research, then share:
13) Anthony Bourdain – 61
At the height of his career, chef, TV personality, world traveler and armchair philosopher Anthony Bourdain decided to commit suicide by hanging himself from a doorknob. Because apparently, that’s just what you do when you’re successful and have a great life.
Just prior to being “SUICIDED” Bourdain tweeted:
“know what Hillary Clinton is NOT? She’s not stupid. Or unsophisticated about the world. The Weinstein stories had been out there for years.”
“Mindless Hillary hate aside, this was a terrible response to questions about a “friend” who’s been tormenting women for decades.”
“I have met Hillary Clinton. I liked her. I admired much about her. This interview was a real disappointment.”
“Hillary is CLEARLY not responsible for anything Weinstein. That’s screamingly obvious. Her response to questions though has been uninspiring.”
“..and I am in no way an HRC fan. I’ve been on the receiving end of her operatives’ wrath. And it ain’t fun,”
“It’s no secret that people who cross the Clintons wind up dead…mostly from suicide,”
Occultic and ritualistic mechanics surrounding his death include: the show he was working on was in its 11th season. He died in France which is the birthplace of the Scottish Rite within Freemasonry.
Interestingly, Bourdain participated in an ancient death ritual at the season finale of his TV show. It aired two weeks after he was suicided. If this isn’t predictive programming I don’t know what is.
14) Amschel Mayor James Rothschild – 41
Amschel Mayor James Rothschild, a billionaire investment banker and a noted sportsman in excellent health, was discovered lifeless on the floor of the bathroom of his suite at the luxurious Bristol Hotel in Paris on July 8, 1996, at 7:32 pm.
Police found that he had been strangled with the heavy cord of his own bathrobe. One end of the cord was attached to a towel rack as if to suggest that Rothschild’s violent death was self-inflicted.
“The [French] crime scene investigators never called it ‘suicide,'” reporter Theirry de Segonzac told *The Spotlight* in a telephone interview from Paris. “After photographing the body, one of the detectives gave the towel rack tied to the body a strong tug. It came right out of the wall.”
Had Rothschild really attempted to hang himself from that rack, he would have ended up with nothing worse than a couple of holes in the wall, de Segonzac said.
There was no suicide note, no discernible cause or reason for a finding of suicide, knowledgeable sources say.
Rothschild, an athletic and imperious figure in early middle age, was a renowned race car driver and the husband of Anita Guinness, herself one of the world’s wealthiest heiresses. The couple had three children who spent most of their time on the family’s baronial estate in Suffolk, England.
Rothschild had arrived in Paris to take over one of the many family consortium’s French assets — anagement operations which were to be merged with N.M. Rothschild’s London-based investment banking center.
“Far from being ‘troubled,’ Amschel Rothschild’s star was on the rise and he relished his success,” says an executive at Keefe, Bruyetter and Co., a respected Wall Street monitor of the financial services industry. “I don’t believe for a moment he suddenly went and killed himself. There’s much more to this story.”
But with frantic speed — within an hour after the body’s discovery — authorities and news executives in both France and Britain launched an unusual joint offensive to preempt a public inquiry or a press investigation into the circumstances of Rothschild’s death.
“Murdoch sent a hotline fax to his 600-odd editors and news managers around the world, ordering them to report Amschel’s death as a heart attack, if at all,” said British broadcast reporter Ian Gooding.
“No one around here has ever seen such pressure to kill a front-page story. But in the end, the cover-up was complete.”
By the way, this story was buried, it is obvious that Amschel was murdered. Apparently, the Illuminati are not immune to lethal attack, when they administer it themselves. If an enemy of the Rothschilds had done it, believe me, you’d know.
The Rothschilds appear to have a secret compact. Each member of the dynasty will die if he refuses to advance the plan for the subversion and enslavement of the human race outlined in “The Protocols of Zion.”
Obviously, Amschel Mayor James Rothschild did not have “the killer instinct.” We don’t know the details but he became an obstruction.
Amschel’s story is a great tragedy. A sensitive, intelligent and good man is born into a megalomaniacal family of generational satanists. He discovers he must be a ruthless predator. It’s not in his character. He has a soul. He resists and is murdered. (Source)
The US mainstream media have moved hastily to shut down the Epstein affair as a prison suicide. End of story. Move on. And anyone who doesn’t move on but instead challenges the official story is dismissed as a “conspiracy theorist”.
The paradox is that it is the critics and skeptics of the official narrative who have much more credibility. The establishment media are the ones who are peddling credulity and indulging in a conspiracy to conceal the need for a thorough investigation.
Remember these are the same news media who helped launch wars and military strikes on foreign countries based on deceitful conspiracies concerning “weapons of mass destruction” in Iraq and alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria.
These are the same media who have been telling the world for the last two years that Russia hacked into US and European electoral systems, that Trump colluded with the Kremlin to get elected to the White House, only for all that bogus storytelling to implode into nothing but evidence-free dust, as the farcical Mueller probe showed.
Their credibility has been shot over and over again. So, for this same media to hastily bury the Epstein affair along with his corpse and to dismiss skeptics as “conspiracy theorists” is in actual fact a sign that this media are doing what they usually do – covering up for the powers-that-be, or what we might call the “deep state”.
The alleged suicide by billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein in a New York City jail last weekend begs many legitimate questions. The suspicious circumstances are well known. Suffice to say that his death is far from proven to be suicide, despite the official autopsy report. His defense lawyers, for their part, aren’t convinced and are demanding an independent investigation. The suspicion is that Epstein was murdered in his prison cell by strangulation.
Why? Because the convicted sex offender had, according to his own admission, loads of blackmail dirt on many powerful or famous people in the world of politics, business, media, and so on. The implication of Britain’s Prince Andrew, former US President Bill Clinton and current President Donald Trump are just a few of the many cases of famous people possibly logged in Epstein’s reputed “black book” of names.
For mainstream US media to dismiss something sinister in the disposal of Epstein as a crank theory betrays a willingness to overlook the rampant culture of crime in American politics involving the use of sex traps and blackmail as a vice to buy politicians, military leaders, media figures.
Investigative journalist Whitney Webb recently published a series of in-depth articles on how organized crime and intelligence services in the US have for decades been involved in systematic use of sexual vice to entrap public figures who are then obliged to toe the line on policies that benefit their trappers. This culture of blackmail is probably as old as politics itself and is of course not unique to the US.
Nevertheless, it became an integral part of US politics over the last century from the years of alcohol prohibition, to the rise of the Mafia and the interlocking relationship between organized crime and state intelligence services to compromise politicians, business, military and media figures who would then henceforth serve as slaves for their vice masters.
People like J Edgar Hoover, who founded the FBI in the 1920s and served as its head until his death in 1972, long denied that organized crime existed in the US. That impossible credulity was because the mafia had dirt on Hoover as a closet homosexual who had a penchant for dressing up in women’s clothes. Hoover, in turn, had dirt on hundreds of politicians who were entrapped by living out their sexual fantasies in what they believed to be secret hotel rendezvous but which were being filmed. Those fantasies could be extramarital affairs, homosexual trysts, or perversions with children.
As Whitney Webb, as well as other investigative journalists, have documented, the culture of vice and blackmail is standard operating procedure by US secret services who have learnt well their dark craft from their organized crime counterparts. They are in fact often indistinguishable.
A key figure in this blackmail industry was the late attorney Roy Cohn who was a senior fixer and dirty trickster for the Reagan and HW Bush administrations in the 1980s until his death. The same people who surrounded Cohn are connected to current politicians and other public figures. It was out of this milieu that Jeffrey Epstein was spawned.
It is simply incredulous that Epstein’s systematic running of sex rings for the rich and famous was not part of the endemic blackmail culture of vice used in Washington.
Granted, it would be a stretch to claim that every member of Congress and mainstream media are victims of blackmail. But it is a fair assumption that many of them are. That sex trap-servility complex ensures that so many of the political class function as lackeys.
Why are American, and NATO country, politicians, as well as their news media, so often conformist to ludicrous policies of war, conflict, enriching the super-rich, and belligerence towards Russia, China and Iran, among others? The pathetic impotence towards challenging state and corporate power and its abuses suggests that many people within the political class are caught and bought by the sex trap-servility complex.

By JAMES PATTERSON
August 20, 2019
Abridged by Lasha Darkmoon from a much longer article published in the Saturday edition of The Daily Mail, 17 August 2019, pp. 28-30. Brief comments and an endnote providing an update by LD have been added to this graphic account of daily life in Epstein’s house of horrors.
“I had been hearing hair-raising stories about Jeffrey Epstein for a couple of years. I wondered why it had taken so long for the Palm Beach police to catch up with him. And, once they did, why he had served so little jail time. Those were the obvious questions, but there were others: How had Epstein made his money, possibly billions? No one seemed to know.” — James Patterson
James Patterson (pictured), one of the world’s most successful authors whose novels regularly top the best-seller charts, happens to live half a mile from Jeffrey Epstein’s home in Palm Beach, Florida. Over the years Patterson had become fascinated and appalled in equal measure by Epstein and determined to investigate just how and why so many young women found their way to his home on a secluded street. This is the deeply disturbing story of what he discovered . . .
Late one afternoon, while taking a leisurely stroll on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, a friend of mine named Tim Malloy ran into a trim, silver-haired neighbour of ours from Palm Beach in Florida.
The man was walking down Madison Avenue, and several things about him were striking. For one thing, he was wearing slippers. Expensive, embroidered, monogrammed slippers. But slippers all the same.
For another, he was accompanied by two exceptionally attractive women. As the man half shuffled, half walked down the avenue, the women walked slightly behind him, as if they were attendants or staff.
The threesome turned onto 71st Street and headed toward an enormous townhouse — a house that was almost a fortress with a 15ft front door. (Here is a picture of Epstein’s impressive townhouse in Madison Avenue, NY)
Like our neighbour’s slippers, the house had a monogram: raised brass letters that spelled out ‘J. E’.
The initials belonged to Jeffrey Epstein, a staggeringly rich and powerful man who was also a registered sex offender with a strong taste for teenage girls. Not just 16 and 17-year-olds, but younger girls as well.
Epstein was alleged to have abused dozens of adolescent girls. He’d done a bit of prison time for his crimes. A bit of time. And now here he was, out in the world again.
Accompanied by two beautiful young women.
I had been hearing hair-raising stories about Jeffrey Epstein for a couple of years. I wondered why it had taken so long for the Palm Beach police to catch up with him.
And, once they did, why he had served so little jail time.
Those were the obvious questions, but there were others: How had Epstein made his money, possibly billions? No one seemed to know.
— § —
We did know that Epstein liked to get massages from two, even three, young women every day, in his Palm Beach mansion or wherever else he was in the world. But who were these girls? Where had they come from? How did they find their way to his home?
Stirred by that sighting of Epstein up in New York, Tim Malloy and I began to investigate. We partnered with John Connolly, a tough, no-nonsense journalist who had once been a cop with the NYPD and had been following the Epstein story for close to ten years. And we began to put the pieces together.
We were never in any doubt that Jeffrey Epstein was guilty. The question is, what exactly was he guilty of?
There was no way of guessing from the exterior of his Palm Beach home at 358 El Brillo Way. Built in the Fifties by a run-of-the-mill architect, it has none of the elegance of neighbouring properties. It’s big, with a large swimming pool: that’s the most you can say for it. It’s totally bland.
But it’s the last house on a dead-end block, and this makes it secluded.
Beyond the gate, past the guard and through a side door to the kitchen, the house ceases to be nondescript. A wide, winding staircase leads to a hallway lined with photographs of young naked women. It leads to his bedroom, and a closet where many more photos are stored: erotic pictures featuring women who have been brought to this house.
How the girls were lured here is something I wanted to understand, as our investigation got under way. One of the first clues is tucked away in a police report from March 2005. A girl of 14 got into a fight at school with another pupil who called her a ‘whore’.
Let’s call this girl Mary. Like about a third of the children at this Florida county high school, she’s from a Hispanic background. Her parents are poor Cuban immigrants. Mary qualifies for free school lunches.
But when she is sent to the principal’s office, Mary is found to have $300 in her purse. The notes are all $20 bills. Alarmed, the head teacher calls her parents and asks: ‘Is Mary selling drugs?’ Her family can’t believe that, but the school needs to know what’s going on. So they send for the psychologist. And then Mary starts talking.
The story she tells is so sickening that the school staff have no hesitation in calling the police. In a high, halting voice, speaking through tears, Mary tells Palm Beach police officer Michele Pagan that she was taken to Epstein’s house. She won’t say who took her, or why she agreed to go. But she is adamant about what happened when she was led upstairs.
‘This white-haired guy came into the room. Wearing only a towel around his waist. He took off the towel. And then he was all naked and he lay face down on the massage table.’
In a stern voice, the man ordered the young girl to remove her jeans and sit astride his back in her panties, with her buttocks against his. Then he pleasured himself. Afterwards, he produced a purple sex toy and touched Mary with it. For this she was paid $300.
— § —
Six months later, a young woman was arrested for possession of a small amount of marijuana. Let’s call her Alison: it’s not her real name. She, too, has a disturbing story to tell about 358 El Brillo Way. It began at the clothes store Hollister in Wellington Green mall, where Alison was working for six bucks an hour as an assistant, aged 16.
Another of the girls told her she could earn $200, just for giving an old guy a massage in his home.
‘She said that he wanted cute girls, so I looked cute, did my best. Like, this guy’s not going to pay you for not letting him cop a feel or nothing. I wasn’t naive enough to think that.’
She was introduced to a woman who called herself Sarah. Alison thought Sarah was some sort of live-in personal assistant. Later, she revised that opinion. Sarah seemed to be a willing sex slave.
The ‘old guy’ demanded a massage, and cajoled Alison into stripping to her underwear and allowing him to grope her. Afterwards, she agreed to return: ‘$300 for 40 minutes, that was a lot.’
Alison insists that she always refused to have full sex with Epstein. On one occasion when he did force himself on her, holding her head down on the massage table she screamed ‘no!’ and he stopped.
In any case, she claimed, her abuser rarely wanted conventional sex. Perhaps that was because his genitals were apparently deformed.
One witness later described Epstein’s penis as ‘egg-shaped’, but Alison was more specific: ‘He’s circumcised, and he has some sort of birth defect. [His penis is] really weirdly shaped, like a teardrop, like a drop of water . . . ’
Epstein rarely asked consent before committing some new violation.
As Alison consented to ever more depraved sex acts, Epstein’s rewards became more lavish. ‘He used to tell me I was his favourite. I’d go over there and there’d be a bag of Victoria’s Secret underwear, like $1,500 worth. I got a plane ticket once. I got a car, I got Christmas bonuses, I got movie tickets. He wanted me to come and live with him as a girlfriend, sex slave, whatever you want to call it.’
She began to bring other schoolgirls to visit him. ‘I brought girls I didn’t like and, frankly, did not give a f*** about. Girls that I knew would do anything. I’d just hear a rumour about a girl and be like, “Hey, I know a way you can make $200.” I would tell them flat out, like, “This is what you’ve got to do. Are you cool with this? ’Cause I’m not gonna take you if you’re not.”
Epstein’s demands became violent, picking Alison up by her ponytails and throwing her against the wall before sexually assaulting her. ‘I mean, there’s been nights I left there barely able to walk.’
She visited regularly for two years but eventually became so scared that she handed the car back and broke off contact. She was still at high school.
— § —
In October 2005, police decided they had enough evidence to get a search warrant for 358 El Brillo Way. Guns drawn, they walk up the winding stairs to the second floor.
They see a pink-and-green couch described by many of the witnesses, and many photos of naked girls on the walls.
Epstein’s house has a strangely antiseptic quality. Some of the bedrooms look almost like doctors’ offices. In one bathroom, there’s a massage table as well as stands holding strange equipment.
In a wood-coloured armoire beside Epstein’s bed, they see a bottle of peach-flavoured lubricant. In the bathroom, there are soaps shaped like penises and vaginas, bottles of Mango Mist, more lubricant and boxes of tampons. It’s as if Epstein was so accustomed to the sex toys, the lubricants, the bizarre equipment and the photographs of naked, underage girls that he saw nothing wrong in them.
The officers find receipts for books bought on Amazon, such as SlaveCraft: Roadmaps For Erotic Servitude.
With additional evidence from a manservant at the house, Alfredo Rodriguez, police were eventually able to charge Epstein, to his disbelief, with sex offences against minors.
— § —
Three years later, after a long court battle, he was sentenced to 18 months in prison, but served only one day in the notorious Palm Beach County Main Detention Center — known locally as the Gun Club. After spending the night in the relative comfort of the prison infirmary, he was transferred to the Palm Beach County Central Detention Center. Despite its almost identical name, this jail is smaller and much safer. Epstein was given his own cell and allowed to pay for his own security guard.
He was allowed any number of visits from his ‘sex slaves’. Sheriff Ric Bradshaw, who ran the jail, commented: ‘Let’s just say he didn’t think he belonged there.’
And in only 13 months, he was out.
Where this power and wealth came from is still a mystery. Epstein claimed to be a financial adviser who specialised in helping billionaires avoid tax. But even if this is how he acquired his wealth, or even if the story is only partly true, his path to riches is far from clear.
However Epstein accumulated his wealth, within a few years he was able to buy his own island — Little St James, one of the U.S. Virgin Islands. He dubbed it St Jeff’s.
LD: It was here in his hedonistic sex paradise in the sun, with topless lolitas lounging by the swimming pool and cavorting naked in the lush gardens, that Epstein’s elite A-lister friends and enablers came to visit him. No questions asked about the source of his fabulous wealth and why so many scantily clad nymphettes were constantly to be seen flitting around the grounds like gorgeous butterflies. Donald Trump was particularly lavish in his praise (picture quote) of his good friend Jeffrey. See update at the end of this article for more details. [LD]
FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES

— § —
It was while he was serving his short spell in jail that a woman filed a civil lawsuit against him, the first stage in his long downfall. It took ten years, and ended with his apparent suicide in a prison cell, a disgraced man with no hope of ever being released.
That woman was named Virginia Roberts, and she was a teenager earning about $9 an hour as a changing room assistant at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, when a woman approached her and asked if she was interested in becoming a massage therapist.
Later that day, her father drove her to 358 El Brillo Way. He left, after being assured a car would bring his 15-year-old daughter home. Virginia (pictured here as a teenager) was led upstairs to a spa room equipped with a shower and a massage table. Jeffrey Epstein was lying on it, naked.
A woman removed her own top to demonstrate Epstein’s preferred massage technique, rubbing her breasts over his body. Virginia did as she was asked, and was then ordered to strip naked. The assault quickly escalated. Virginia was battered, sexually attacked and subjected to abuse. At the end of the two-hour encounter, she was paid ‘hundreds of dollars’ and told she had ‘lots of potential’.
A naturally compliant and docile girl, Virginia returned to the house whenever she was asked.
Virginia said she saw Epstein having sex with underage girls on a daily basis. So it would be very surprising if people who stayed with him in his houses were unaware of it.
He also told her he went out of his way to procure girls for powerful friends. ‘Epstein specifically told me this was so they would “owe him”, they would be “in his pocket,” and he would “have something on them”. I understood that Epstein thought he could get leniency if he was ever caught doing anything illegal, or that he could escape trouble altogether.’
He did not escape trouble. It caught up with him, lethally.
Jeffrey Epstein soiled all the lives of the underage girls he abused. But he didn’t see it that way. Shortly before his first jail term, he gave a boastful interview to the New York Magazine. When the interviewer asked whether he saw himself as a modern-day Icarus, the Greek hero who fell to earth after flying too close to the sun, Epstein smirked: ‘Did Icarus like massages?’

UPDATE by LD: It is possible to argue that both Trump and Prince Andrew, as their supporters would like us to believe, are spotlessly innocent of any inappropriate behaviour with underage girls; however, that they have nevertheless been recklessly indiscreet for not distancing themselves earlier from Epstein’s sex circus. Trump has managed to put some distance between himself and Epstein recently, but two other figures have not fared quite so well: Prince Andrew and Bill Clinton. The former American president is beginning to look particularly vulnerable and sleazy.
First, Prince Andrew. Association with the perverted Epstein can only be justified if one can say, “I had no idea the man was a pervert. With hindsight, I would have given Epstein a wide berth if I’d known he was a pedophile.” Unfortunately, Prince Andrew cannot say this. He continued to hobnob with Epstein long after Epstein had been outed as a pedophile and convicted for his sex crimes. It has recently come to light that Prince Andrew visited Epstein at his home in New York in 2010—two years after Epstein had been convicted of sex with a child.
“Two years after Epstein was convicted of sex with a child,” the Daily Mail discloses in a report today, “Andrew was ‘guest of honour’ at a dinner at Epstein’s New York mansion.”
So here is a member of the British royal family who is quite brazenly associating with a convicted pedophile, a notorious jailbird well acquainted with the inside of a prison cell. Andrew entertained this sex criminal at three of the Queen’s homes: Windsor Castle, Sandringham and Balmoral, the Scottish castle (here pictured). It’s hard to see how such a man can convincingly claim to be a paragon of virtue. But Andrew is backed to the hilt by Buckingham Palace which has given him a clean bill of health.
“Any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue,” a spokesman for the Palace informs us magisterially.
Bill Clinton seems to have landed himself even deeper in the doo-doo than Trump and Prince Andrew. Bill has a lot of explaining to do. The Daily Mail reports today:
Visitors to Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘House of Horrors’ were confronted by ‘creepy’ interior decor, including artificial eyeballs and a portrait of Bill Clinton in a [woman’s] dress.
The entry foyer to the Manhattan mansion, where Prince Andrew is standing in the video, was decorated with fake eyeballs. Even more bizarre is a portrait of former US president Clinton—a friend of Epstein—in heels and the infamous stained blue dress worn by Monica Lewinsky when she performed a sex act on him.
(Scroll down to ‘Inside the House of Horrors‘
My own cynical view, for what it’s worth, is that none of these elite overlords will ever face justice. They are above the law. The law applies only to us lesser mortals. Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.
The Clinton name will be forever synonymous with pedophilia and Satanism.
On Saturday multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein, the highest-profile prisoner in US custody, was found dead in his prison cell in Manhattan.
This occurred the day after two thousand previously sealed court documents involving the Jeffrey Epstein child sex abuse case were released to the public.
The documents described how Bill Clinton held a private party on Jeffrey Epstein’s pedophile island.
Clinton made at least 27 times trips on Jeffrey Epstein’s private plane. Most of those flights were with underage girls.
Early yesterday morning they found him dead.
Jeffrey Epstein is the latest in a long list of Clinton family associates and acquaintances who died mysteriously or committed suicide before their public testimony.
In 2016 CBS Las Vegas posted a list of Bill and Hillary Clinton associates alleged to have died under mysterious circumstances.
Here is that list.
1- James McDougal – Clintons convicted Whitewater partner died of an apparent heart attack, while in solitary confinement. He was a key witness in Ken Starr’s investigation.
2 – Mary Mahoney – A former White House intern was murdered July 1997 at a Starbucks Coffee Shop in Georgetown .. The murder …happened just after she was to go public w:th her story of sexual harassment in the White House.
3 – Vince Foster – Former White House counselor, and colleague of Hillary Clinton at Little Rock’s Rose Law firm. Died of a gunshot wound to the head, ruled a suicide.
4 – Ron Brown – Secretary of Commerce and former DNC Chairman. Reported to have died by impact in a plane crash. A pathologist close to the investigation reported that there was a hole in the top of Brown’s skull resembling a gunshot wound. At the time of his death Brown was being investigated, and spoke publicly of his willingness to cut a deal with prosecutors. The rest of the people on the plane also died. A few days later the Air Traffic controller commited suicide.
5 – C. Victor Raiser, II – Raiser, a major player in the Clinton fund raising organization died in a private plane crash in July 1992.
6 – Paul Tulley – Democratic National Committee Political Director found dead in a hotel room in Little Rock , September 1992. Described by Clinton as a “dear friend and trusted advisor”.
7 – Ed Willey – Clinton fundraiser, found dead November 1993 deep in the woods in VA of a gunshot wound to the head. Ruled a suicide. Ed Willey died on the same day his wife Kathleen Willey claimed Bill Clinton groped her in the oval office in the White House. Ed Willey was involved in several Clinton fund raising events.
8 – Jerry Parks – Head of Clinton’s gubernatorial security team in Little Rock .. Gunned down in his car at a deserted intersection outside Little Rock Park’s son said his father was building a dossier on Clinton He allegedly threatened to reveal this information.

(CD) — Child sex trafficking victim Cyntoia Brown was released from prison on Wednesday—a development welcomed by human rights advocates who said her case underscores the need to fix the nation’s criminal justice system.
Now 31 years old, Brown was originally sentenced to life in prison for killing one of the men who solicited her for sex when she was a 16-year-old child.
In January, then-Gov. Bill Haslam (R-Tenn.) commuted her sentence following pressure from human rights groups, thousands of Americans who signed petitions and wrote letters, and celebrities who helped bring attention to her case.
“This victory belongs to Cyntoia, her community, and to the thousands of people including local organizers and advocates who stepped in to demand justice,” said online racial justice organization Color of Change on Twitter on Wednesday.
“Cyntoia’s story,” the group continued, “provides a glimpse into the lives of the thousands of women and girls currently locked up behind bars largely due to survival strategies.”
It also provides a glimpse of how justice is meted out, as commentator David A. Love noted in 2018.
“A virtual life sentence for former child sex slave Cyntoia Brown stands in marked contrast to the light slap on the wrist for billionaire serial abuser Jeffrey Epstein,” he wrote. “But it is not surprising in a society that treats people differently based on race, class, and gender.
“More action must be taken to protect young, vulnerable sex trafficking victims in our country,” Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law president and executive director Kristen Clarke tweeted. “Child trafficking victims deserve support and safety, not incarceration.”
Brown spent more than 14 years behind bars.
Brown said in a statement this week that she looks “forward to using my experiences to help other women and girls suffering abuse and exploitation.”
Though now out of prison, Brown is still under state control.
The Tennessee Department of Correction said she will be on parole for 10 years. During that time, she must maintain employment or enrollment in classes, attend regular counseling, and do community service.
The ACLU previously denounced the additional decade as “excessive.”
“Cyntoia never should have been sentenced so harshly to begin with,” the rights group said in January, “and we can’t lose sight of the fact that she is still receiving an excessive 10 years probation.”

The indictment of wealthy investor Jeffrey Epstein by the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York (SDNY) on charges of international sex trafficking and a wider conspiracy to commit such activity has sent shock waves throughout the political, business, and social strata of the United States and other countries.
Epstein’s fleet of private aircraft and numerous residences have law enforcement investigators looking deeply into various activities, over several decades, involving Epstein’s recent and distant past. Moreover, according to police reports, court filings, and witness statements, Epstein’s circle of friends includes some of the most politically important people in the world, including President Donald Trump; former President Bill Clinton; Britain’s Prince Andrew, the Duke of York; and former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak. All of these VIPs, as well others, have socialized with Epstein, with Trump, in particular, being well-aware of Epstein’s taste in women that were “on the younger side.” In fact, Trump and Epstein were named as co-defendants in a 2016 lawsuit citing the alleged 1994 rape of a 13-year girl at Epstein’s Manhattan mansion. That lawsuit – Jane Doe v. Jeffrey Epstein and Donald Trump – has received more serious attention now that Epstein, a previously convicted underage sex offender in Florida, has been indicted on federal sex-trafficking charges.
The Epstein connection to the Trump administration also included Trump’s pick for Secretary of Labor, Alex Acosta, the US Attorney for South Florida who, in 2007 and 2008, crafted a federal and state of Florida non-prosecution agreement that immunized Epstein and his associates from any future state or federal prosecutions related to Epstein’s trafficking in underage girls. In return for such a “sweetheart” plea agreement, Epstein merely had to plead guilty to a few charges of soliciting prostitution from underage girls, serve a virtual “open door” jail sentence for thirteen months in Palm Beach County, and agree to register as a sex offender. Questions about Acosta’s role with Epstein and the agreement resulted in his resignation as Labor Secretary. Part of Acosta’s duties as Labor Secretary was the monitoring of the sex trafficking of women and children for prostitution pursuant to US laws and international treaties.
Epstein was returning on his private jet from Paris on July 6 of this year when he was arrested by federal authorities. The international nature of Epstein’s trafficking operations is highlighted by his ownership of two islands off of St. Thomas – Little St. James and Greater St. James – in the US Virgin Islands. Epstein has also maintained residences in Manhattan, Palm Beach, Florida (close to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort complex), and New Mexico. Epstein used a fake Austrian passport issued under an alias. The use of fake or false identity-inserted authentic passports are a specialty of the Mossad, which maintains a “passport factory” in Israel used to produce bogus travel documents. These have been used for Mossad operations in Australia, Dubai, New Zealand, the United States, Canada, Switzerland, Costa Rica, India, Thailand, Mexico, Peru, Brazil, Belarus, Ukraine, Germany, Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela, Britain, France, Turkey, and North Korea. Epstein used his fake Austrian passport to travel to France, Spain (including the Canary Islands), Saudi Arabia, and Britain.
The upper echelons of the Israeli political and intelligence structure also feature prominently in Epstein’s circle of associates and friends. Epstein’s mysterious links to unidentified national security interests were heightened after revelations that Acosta, while he was the US Attorney in Miami, was instructed by higher authority “back off” with regard to the Epstein case because Epstein “belonged to intelligence” and that Acosta should just “leave it alone.”
While the use of sexual blackmail by intelligence agencies is as old as intelligence operations themselves, the use of minors in such “honeytrap” cases in generally in the purview of only a few espionage organizations, the major one being Israel’s Mossad. And in reviewing Epstein’s Israeli connections, there is a very good chance that it was Mossad for whom Epstein was gathering political blackmail.
First, Epstein handled the financial portfolio for Leslie Wexner, the Ohio-based retail store magnate. The Wexner Foundation has made generous grants to Israeli organizations, including scholarships for Israeli government officials to obtain post-graduate degrees from Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government.
Second, Epstein’s longtime administrative assistant has been Ghislaine Maxwell, the daughter of the late British media tycoon Robert Maxwell. Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell were, for quite some time, habitués of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club.
Although there have been a number of allegations concerning Robert Maxwell’s links to various intelligence services, his burial on the revered Mount of Olives in Jerusalem – reserved for loyal servants of Israel – attests to his lifetime of assistance to the Israeli state. In his 1991 eulogy of Maxwell, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir stated Maxwell “has done more for Israel than can today be said.” That loyalty to Israel extended back to the time when Maxwell served not only as a United Kingdom Member of Parliament for the Labor Party but as an insurance policy that Labor would adhere to a pro-Israeli stance. Maxwell and Donald Trump were also close social acquaintances, often see together at events for New York’s high and mighty.
Robert Maxwell maintained a close relationship with the Communist leaders in Eastern Europe. Epstein trafficked in underage girls from Eastern Europe, including from the former Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia, the latter Robert Maxwell’s nation of birth. Epstein’s travels have also taken him to Slovakia, Mexico, South Africa, and Morocco.
Epstein always had a ready supply of money and a lot of it. He used it to buy two islands in the US Virgin Islands and outfit one with a massive mansion and guest houses. Epstein also had a fleet of jets, including a Boeing 727, nicknamed the “Lolita Express,” a Gulfstream IV, a Gulfstream GV, and a helicopter. Epstein built a huge ranch in New Mexico, complete with an aircraft hangar and runway. He also owned an apartment on Avenue Foch, near L’Arc de Triomphe in the most expensive neighborhood of Paris. Epstein’s seven-story townhouse in Manhattan’s Upper East Side was used to entertain the nobility of politics, entertainment, and even science. While some of Epstein’s wealth was undoubtedly made from handling the portfolios for Wexner and investments for the now-defunct Bear Stearns Wall Street securities firm and the late Saudi business tycoon Adnan Khashoggi, the steady stream of Epstein’s finances, during both bull and bear markets on Wall Street, has puzzled financial experts. Epstein’s use of a series of shell companies to move his money around strongly suggests that some of it originated from Israeli intelligence with other cash flows originating from blackmail payments by those implicated in Epstein’s activities.
Epstein’s movement of large amounts of money from the United States to accounts abroad triggered JP Morgan Chase and Deutsche Bank to sever ties with him. Epstein’s movement of funds through Deutsche Bank branches in New York and Jacksonville, Florida during 2015 and 2016 prompted the bank to inform the US Treasury Department through suspicious activity reports. Coincidentally or not, the Jacksonville branch also reported suspicious money movements through Deutsche Bank by Kushner Companies, the firm owned by Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, and the Trump Organization.
Epstein’s residences were outfitted with sophisticated eavesdropping and camera surveillance systems. Epstein’s Little St. James Island has an island-wide WiFi and mobile phone network that lent itself to eavesdropping on phone calls, emails, and text messages sent and received in the coverage area. In a lawsuit against Epstein filed by one of his many victims, it is alleged that Epstein installed concealed cameras throughout his properties to record sexual activity with underage girls by prominent people for purposes such as blackmail.
On his state visit to London, Trump’s primary chaperone was Prince Andrew. Not only does Andrew feature prominently in Epstein’s circle of friends but Britain continues to recover from the pedophilia activity of longtime BBC entertainer Jimmy Savile. Implicated in Savile’s debauchery over several decades have been Conservative Prime Minister Edward Heath, former MI-6 Secret Intelligence Service official Sir Peter Hayman, Liberal Democratic MP Cyril Smith, Liberal Party MP Sir Clement Freud (the grandson of famed psychopathologist Sigmund Freud), and Labor Party peer Lord Greville Janner.
There is no arguing that the upper echelons of the British security and intelligence establishment have been rife with pedophiles. The extent to which MI-5 and MI-6 have used such dark proclivities to advance their agendas is up for debate. One thing is known, however. Politicians and media trying to uncover the extent to which pedophiles populate senior positions in government, religion, entertainment, and other sectors is often met with threats. On the other hand, Epstein’s money has, up until recently, ensured silence from the government of the US Virgin Islands, New Mexico, Florida, and the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.
“The Miami Herald” and its reporters and editors who uncovered details of the Epstein case have been threatened. So too have politicians who have pursued Epstein’s political enablers in Florida. Among those threatened has been Florida State Senator Lauren Book. Because of her dogged pursuit of pedophiles in Pennsylvania state government, Commonwealth Attorney General Kathleen Kane was indicted on trumped-up charges, forced to resign from office, and sentenced to prison. The Isle of Jersey’s former health minister, Stuart Syvret, was branded by the media a “conspiracy nutter” for his investigation of child sexual abuse at the Haute de Garenne orphanage on the island. In a 2007 interview with a French magazine, French President Nicolas Sarkozy shocked France by saying he was “inclined to think that people are born pedophiles and that it is also a problem that we do not know how to manage.” There is also the strange matter that the current French President, Emmanuel Macron, began a relationship, while he was 15, with his schoolteacher, who is now his wife and First Lady of France. Even though Epstein was arrested at a New Jersey airport after returning on his private plane from Paris, French authorities have been slow to open an investigation into Epstein’s activities in France.
It was the cover-up of his past pedophile activity that landed former Republican Speaker of the US House of Representatives Dennis Hastert, at one time the second-in-line to the US presidency, in prison.
Epstein’s federal trial is scheduled to begin during the summer of 2020, right in the middle of the US presidential campaign. The evidence produced, said to number over a million pages, is bound to affect the outcome of the election. Trump’s one-time close relationship with Epstein may be the reason why so many Republican members of the House of Representatives are jumping ship. What was expected to be a rout of Republicans in 2020 may be a tsunami if the Epstein trial produces the expected explosive information on the billionaire residents of Palm Beach island in Florida, home to Epstein, Trump, and other mega-wealthy movers and shakers.

More than three dozen suspected online child sex offenders were arrested in Aurora, Colorado, during Operation Broken Heart. The nationwide operation was led by the US Department of Justice and resulted in nearly 1,700 arrests during April and May. On June 11, 2019, the DOJ announced that its “task forces identified 308 offenders who either produced child pornography or committed child sexual abuse, and 357 children who suffered recent, ongoing or historical sexual abuse or were exploited in the production of child pornography.”
The operation targeted suspects who: (1) produce, distribute, receive and possess child pornography; (2) engage in online enticement of children for sexual purposes; (3) engage in the sex trafficking of children; and (4) travel across state lines or to foreign countries and sexually abuse children.

The Colorado Sentinel reports 32-year-old Raymond Fredericks was sentenced to 22 years in prison Tuesday after pleading guilty to a felony sex trafficking charge in May.
Todd Bush, a 42-year-old former teacher, was arrested in an undercover sting on July 18 after agreeing to pay $100 to who he thought was the mother of an 11-year-old girl for sex with her daughter, authorities said. He was charged with human trafficking of a child, obscene communication, and traveling to meet a minor for sex. Bush was already a registered sex offender and was on probation for a 2011 incident when he was busted in the sting last week.
On July 18, a federal jury in Baltimore convicted Ryan Russell Parks, 26, on two counts of sex trafficking a minor and one count of using the internet to promote a prostitution business.
Parks faces a minimum mandatory sentence of 10 years in prison and a maximum of life in prison for each of the two counts of sex trafficking a minor, and a maximum of five years in prison for using the Internet to promote a business enterprise involving prostitution.
The case was investigated by the FBI-led Maryland Child Exploitation Task Force (MCETF), created in 2010 to combat child prostitution, with members from 10 state and federal law enforcement agencies. (source)

Thousands of allegations of child sexual abuse by Catholic priests, nuns, and members of religious orders have been made over the last few decades. Many investigations, trials, and convictions – and revelations about decades of attempts by Church officials to cover up reported incidents – have resulted. These offenses are not limited to clergy in the US – cases have occurred all over the world.
I think it is important to note here that my family is Catholic, so I know how painful this subject can be for some followers.
According to a 2009 report, the founder of a religious order that treats Roman Catholic priests who molest children concluded decades ago that offenders were unlikely to change and should not be returned to ministry:
As early as the mid-1950s, decades before the clergy sexual-abuse crisis broke publicly across the U.S. Catholic landscape, the founder of a religious order that dealt regularly with priest sex abusers was so convinced of their inability to change that he searched for an island to purchase with the intent of using it as a place to isolate such offenders, according to documents recently obtained by NCR.
Fr. Gerald Fitzgerald, founder of the Servants of the Paracletes, an order established in 1947 to deal with problem priests, wrote regularly to bishops in the United States and to Vatican officials, including the pope, of his opinion that many sexual abusers in the priesthood should be laicized immediately. (source)
Yesterday, a Florida minister and registered sex offender was arrested after authorities found child pornography on his home computer, reports the Associated Press:
Sarasota County Sheriff’s officials tell news outlets that 66-year-old Charles Andrews was arrested Tuesday. He’s charged with 500 felony counts of possession of child pornography and three counts of failing to meet sex offender requirements.
Andrews is a pastor at Osprey Church of Christ. Andrews also is a registered sex offender who was convicted in 2006 of second-degree sexual abuse in Alabama. Now he’s in jail, his bond set at more than $5 million. (source)
The Associated Press has a Sexual Abuse by Clergy page that is dedicated to coverage of cases.
Here is a sampling of recent cases they have documented:
A genetics expert retained by the family of a girl who went missing in 1983 said Saturday that a cavernous underground space near a Vatican cemetery holds thousands of bones that appear to be from dozens of individuals, both “adult and non-adult.”
The expert, Giorgio Portera, said the “enormous” size of the collection under the Teutonic College was revealed when Vatican-appointed experts began cataloguing the remains, which were discovered last week .
“We didn’t expect such an enormous number” of bones and other remains which “had been thrown into a cavity,” Portera said. “We want to know why and how” the bones ended up there. (source)
Victims of abuse by religious and institutional authorities (priests, ministers, bishops, deacons, nuns, coaches, teachers, and others) can find support here: SNAP. BishopAccountability.org has an Abuse Tracker page that provides links to media coverage of clergy abuse.
While Epstein’s arrest has increased awareness of predatory behavior by the elite, the wealthy and powerful are not the only ones committing such heinous acts.
According to The National Center for Victims of Crime, the prevalence of child sexual abuse (CSA) is difficult to determine because it is often not reported. Experts agree that the incidence is far greater than what is reported to authorities.
Statistics below represent some of the research done on child sexual abuse.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Children’s Bureau report Child Maltreatment 2010 found that 9.2% of victimized children were sexually assaulted (page 24).
According to Darkness to Light, a non-profit committed to empowering adults to prevent child sexual abuse, only about one-third of child sexual abuse incidents are identified, and even fewer are reported.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children operates the CyberTipline, a national mechanism for the public and electronic service providers to report instances of suspected child sexual exploitation.
In 2018 the CyberTipline received more than 18.4 million reports, most of which related to:
Since its inception, the CyberTipline has received more than 48 million reports.
Those statistics are grim.
There are various types of sex offenders and sex crimes, and that topic is beyond the scope of this article. Because sex trafficking and the vulnerability of minors are crucial issues, we will focus on them here.
US federal law refers to sex trafficking as any commercial sex act that is “induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age.”
A recent report from Insider sheds light on just how many people are victims of sex trafficking.
The statistics are alarming and heartbreaking:
It’s estimated that there are around 4.5 million victims of sex trafficking across the world. And though it’s difficult to know just how many people are involved in sex trafficking in the US, the Polaris Project, a non-profit dedicated to ending human trafficking, received more than 34,000 reports of sex trafficking on its Human Trafficking Hotline between 2007 and 2017.
End Slavery Now, an anti-human trafficking and slavery organization, estimates many of those trafficked into the US come from countries like Mexico, the Philippines, Thailand, Honduras, Guatemala, India and El Salvador. But experts say that plenty of sex trafficking victims are from the US, too. (source)
The conclusion of the Insider report is chilling:
But the millions sex trafficked around the world don’t look like they do in movies. These people, often minors, can lead normal lives and pass through normal places, jobs, and homes.
The sex trafficking that goes on in the US largely takes place in a criminal underbelly ubiquitous in US cities and communities, which millions of Americans, for whatever reason, turn a blind eye to daily. (source)
Power, anger, and revenge are common motivators for sex offenders, according to Criminal Justice School Info:
It is mistakenly believed that sexual offenders are solely motivated by sexual gratification when they commit their crimes. Dr. Nicholas Groth developed three typologies to describe the motivations of rapists, two of which suggest sexual gratification is secondary. Anger rapists are fueled by rage towards their victims and rape is their way of seeking violent revenge. According to the Center for Sex Offender Management (CSOM), these rapists may actually be extremely discontent with another area in their lives and thus take out their frustration on their victims. “Anger rapists tend to use a significant amount of physical force when they subdue their victims – in most cases, far more force than is necessary to perpetrate the abuse,” adds the CSOM. Verbal abuse is also a common component of these types of violations that are generally impulsive – not planned.
Power rapists on the other hand are less impulsive and rely on psychological manipulation more so than physical violence to subdue and sexually assault their victims. “The power rapist was motivated by his need to control and dominate his victim, and inversely, to avoid being controlled by [the victim],” describes Dr. Lisak. Those who rape their domestic partners are often characterized as power rapists. There are also sadistic rapists who receive sexual or erotic gratification from exerting power and control over the victims they rape. “Because they have an erotic response to power and control, extreme violence and torture often characterize their assaults,” says the CSOM. “In many cases, victims of sadistic rapists are murdered during the assaults”. The CSOM adds that these types of rapes are least common and account for between 2% and 5% of cases in the United States. (source)
Repeat sex offenders do not necessarily target only one category of victim or offend in the same manner, that report explains:
Dr. Lisak explains that a proportion of sexual offenders are ‘non-specialists’. “Multiple studies have now documented that between 33% and 66% of rapists have also sexually attacked children; that up to 82% of child molesters have also sexually attacked adults; and that between 50% and 66% of incest offenders have also sexually attacked children outside their families,” states Dr. Lisak.
Additionally, many of us tend to think a sex offender will keep on offending until he or she is caught. While in reality, recidivism does happen, it may not be as common as we think. According to Arkowitz and Lilienfeld, approximately 14% of sexual offenders reoffend within a five to six year period and 24% within a 15 year period. While this suggests recidivism is less often the case, it does suggest the longer it takes law enforcement to track down a sexual predator or criminal, the more likely he or she will reoffend. (source)
Not everyone who sexually abuses children is a pedophile, as Darkness to Light explains:
Child sexual abuse is perpetrated by a wide range of individuals with diverse motivations. It is impossible to identify specific characteristics that are common to all those who molest children. Situational offenders tend to offend at times of stress and begin offending later than pedophilic offenders. They also have fewer victims (often family), and have a general preference for adult partners.
Pedophilic offenders often start offending at an early age and often have a large number of victims (frequently not family members).
70% of child sex offenders have between one and 9 victims, while 20% have 10 to 40 victims. (source)
It is important to understand that there are people who have or will sexually abuse children in churches, schools, and youth sports leagues, as Darkness to Light explains:
Abusers can be neighbors, friends, and family members. People who sexually abuse children can be found in families, schools, churches, recreation centers, youth sports leagues, and any other place children gather.
Significantly, abusers can be and often are other children.
About 90% of children who are victims of abuse know their abuser. Only 10% of sexually abused children are abused by a stranger.
Approximately 30% of children who are sexually abused are abused by family members. The younger the victim, the more likely it is that the abuser is a family member. Of those molesting a child under six, 50% were family members. Family members also accounted for 23% of those abusing children ages 12 to 17.
About 60% of children who are sexually abused are abused by the people the family trusts. (source)
Sexual abuse is a challenging topic to discuss. It can be even more difficult when you’re talking about protecting your own children. Families can take steps to keep their children safe and give them the tools to speak up when something isn’t right.
Here is a list of resources that can help you keep your family safe.
Do you think that sex crimes are on the rise, or that we are just hearing about them more now? Are there things you do to keep you and your family safe from predators? Please share your thoughts in the comments.

Sex trafficking—especially when it comes to the buying and selling of young girls—has become big business in America, the fastest growing business in organized crime and the second most-lucrative commodity traded illegally after drugs and guns.
As investigative journalist Amy Fine Collins notes, “It’s become more lucrative and much safer to sell malleable teens than drugs or guns. A pound of heroin or an AK-47 can be retailed once, but a young girl can be sold 10 to 15 times a day—and a ‘righteous’ pimp confiscates 100 percent of her earnings.”
Consider this: every two minutes, a child is exploited in the sex industry.
According to USA Today, adults purchase children for sex at least 2.5 million times a year in the United States.
Who buys a child for sex? Otherwise ordinary men from all walks of life.
“They could be your co-worker, doctor, pastor or spouse,” writes journalist Tim Swarens, who spent more than a year investigating the sex trade in America.
In Georgia alone, it is estimated that 7,200 men (half of them in their 30s) seek to purchase sex with adolescent girls each month, averaging roughly 300 a day.
On average, a child might be raped by 6,000 men during a five-year period of servitude.
It is estimated that at least 100,000 children—girls and boys—are bought and sold for sex in the U.S. every year, with as many as 300,000 children in danger of being trafficked each year. Some of these children are forcefully abducted, others are runaways, and still others are sold into the system by relatives and acquaintances.
“HUMAN TRAFFICKING—THE COMMERCIAL SEXUAL EXPLOITATION OF AMERICAN CHILDREN AND WOMEN, VIA THE INTERNET, STRIP CLUBS, ESCORT SERVICES, OR STREET PROSTITUTION—IS ON ITS WAY TO BECOMING ONE OF THE WORST CRIMES IN THE U.S.,” SAID PROSECUTOR KRISHNA PATEL.
This is an industry that revolves around cheap sex on the fly, with young girls and women who are sold to 50 men each day for $25 apiece, while their handlers make $150,000 to $200,000 per child each year.
This is not a problem found only in big cities.
It’s happening everywhere, right under our noses, in suburbs, cities and towns across the nation.
As Ernie Allen of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children points out, “The only way not to find this in any American city is simply not to look for it.”
Don’t fool yourselves into believing that this is merely a concern for lower income communities or immigrants.
It is estimated that there are 100,000 to 150,000 under-aged child sex workers in the U.S. These girls aren’t volunteering to be sex slaves. They’re being lured—forced—trafficked into it. In most cases, they have no choice.
In order to avoid detection (in some cases aided and abetted by the police) and cater to male buyers’ demand for sex with different women, pimps and the gangs and crime syndicates they work for have turned sex trafficking into a highly mobile enterprise, with trafficked girls, boys and women constantly being moved from city to city, state to state, and country to country.
For instance, the Baltimore-Washington area, referred to as The Circuit, with its I-95 corridor dotted with rest stops, bus stations and truck stops, is a hub for the sex trade.
No doubt about it: this is a highly profitable, highly organized and highly sophisticated sex trafficking business that operates in towns large and small, raking in upwards of $9.5 billion a year in the U.S. alone by abducting and selling young girls for sex.
Every year, the girls being bought and sold gets younger and younger.
The average age of those being trafficked is 13. Yet as the head of a group that combats trafficking pointed out, “Let’s think about what average means. That means there are children younger than 13. That means 8-, 9-, 10-year-olds.“
“FOR EVERY 10 WOMEN RESCUED, THERE ARE 50 TO 100 MORE WOMEN WHO ARE BROUGHT IN BY THE TRAFFICKERS. UNFORTUNATELY, THEY’RE NOT 18- OR 20-YEAR-OLDS ANYMORE,” NOTED A 25-YEAR-OLD VICTIM OF TRAFFICKING. “THEY’RE MINORS AS YOUNG AS 13 WHO ARE BEING TRAFFICKED. THEY’RE LITTLE GIRLS.”
Where did this appetite for young girls come from?
Look around you.
Young girls have been sexualized for years now in music videos, on billboards, in television ads, and in clothing stores. Marketers have created a demand for young flesh and a ready supply of over-sexualized children.
“ALL IT TAKES IS ONE LOOK AT MYSPACE PHOTOS OF TEENS TO SEE EXAMPLES—IF THEY AREN’T IMITATING PORN THEY’VE ACTUALLY SEEN, THEY’RE IMITATING THE PORN-INSPIRED IMAGES AND POSES THEY’VE ABSORBED ELSEWHERE,” WRITES JESSICA BENNETT FOR NEWSWEEK. “LATEX, CORSETS AND STRIPPER HEELS, ONCE THE FASHION OF PORN STARS, HAVE MADE THEIR WAY INTO MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL.”
This is what Bennett refers to as the “pornification of a generation.”
“IN A MARKET THAT SELLS HIGH HEELS FOR BABIES AND THONGS FOR TWEENS, IT DOESN’T TAKE A GENIUS TO SEE THAT SEX, IF NOT PORN, HAS INVADED OUR LIVES,” CONCLUDES BENNETT. “WHETHER WE WELCOME IT OR NOT, TELEVISION BRINGS IT INTO OUR LIVING ROOMS AND THE WEB BRINGS IT INTO OUR BEDROOMS. ACCORDING TO A 2007 STUDY FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA, AS MANY AS 90 PERCENT OF BOYS AND 70 PERCENT OF GIRLS AGED 13 TO 14 HAVE ACCESSED SEXUALLY EXPLICIT CONTENT AT LEAST ONCE.”
In other words, the culture is grooming these young people to be preyed upon by sexual predators. And then we wonder why our young women are being preyed on, trafficked and abused?
Social media makes it all too easy. As one news center reported, “Finding girls is easy for pimps. They look on MySpace, Facebook, and other social networks. They and their assistants cruise malls, high schools and middle schools. They pick them up at bus stops. On the trolley. Girl-to-girl recruitment sometimes happens.” Foster homes and youth shelters have also become prime targets for traffickers.
Rarely do these girls enter into prostitution voluntarily. Many start out as runaways or throwaways, only to be snatched up by pimps or larger sex rings. Others, persuaded to meet up with a stranger after interacting online through one of the many social networking sites, find themselves quickly initiated into their new lives as sex slaves.
Debbie, a straight-A student who belonged to a close-knit Air Force family living in Phoenix, Ariz., is an example of this trading of flesh. Debbie was 15 when she was snatched from her driveway by an acquaintance-friend. Forced into a car, Debbie was bound and taken to an unknown location, held at gunpoint and raped by multiple men. She was then crammed into a small dog kennel and forced to eat dog biscuits. Debbie’s captors advertised her services on Craigslist. Those who responded were often married with children, and the money that Debbie “earned” for sex was given to her kidnappers. The gang raping continued. After searching the apartment where Debbie was held captive, police finally found Debbie stuffed in a drawer under a bed. Her harrowing ordeal lasted for 40 days.
While Debbie was fortunate enough to be rescued, others are not so lucky. According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, nearly 800,000 children go missing every year (roughly 2,185 children a day).
With a growing demand for sexual slavery and an endless supply of girls and women who can be targeted for abduction, this is not a problem that’s going away anytime soon.
For those trafficked, it’s a nightmare from beginning to end.
Those being sold for sex have an average life expectancy of seven years, and those years are a living nightmare of endless rape, forced drugging, humiliation, degradation, threats, disease, pregnancies, abortions, miscarriages, torture, pain, and always the constant fear of being killed or, worse, having those you love hurt or killed.
Peter Landesman paints the full horrors of life for those victims of the sex trade in his New York Times article “The Girls Next Door”:
Andrea told me that she and the other children she was held with were frequently beaten to keep them off-balance and obedient. Sometimes they were videotaped while being forced to have sex with adults or one another. Often, she said, she was asked to play roles: the therapist patient or the obedient daughter. Her cell of sex traffickers offered three age ranges of sex partners–toddler to age 4, 5 to 12 and teens–as well as what she called a “damage group.” “In the damage group, they can hit you or do anything they want to,” she explained. “Though sex always hurts when you are little, so it’s always violent, everything was much more painful once you were placed in the damage group.”
What Andrea described next shows just how depraved some portions of American society have become. “They’d get you hungry then to train you” to have oral sex. “They put honey on a man. For the littlest kids, you had to learn not to gag. And they would push things in you so you would open up better. We learned responses. Like if they wanted us to be sultry or sexy or scared. Most of them wanted you scared. When I got older, I’d teach the younger kids how to float away so things didn’t hurt.”
Immigration and customs enforcement agents at the Cyber Crimes Center in Fairfax, Va., report that when it comes to sex, the appetites of many Americans have now changed.What was once considered abnormal is now the norm. These agents are tracking a clear spike in the demand for harder-core pornography on the Internet. As one agent noted, “We’ve become desensitized by the soft stuff; now we need a harder and harder hit.”
This trend is reflected by the treatment many of the girls receive at the hands of the drug traffickers and the men who purchase them. Peter Landesman interviewed Rosario, a Mexican woman who had been trafficked to New York and held captive for a number of years. She said: “In America, we had ‘special jobs.’ Oral sex, anal sex, often with many men. Sex is now more adventurous, harder.”
A common thread woven through most survivors’ experiences is being forced to go without sleep or food until they have met their sex quota of at least 40 men. One woman recounts how her trafficker made her lie face down on the floor when she was pregnant and then literally jumped on her back, forcing her to miscarry.
Holly Austin Smith was abducted when she was 14 years old, raped, and then forced to prostitute herself. Her pimp, when brought to trial, was only made to serve a year in prison.
Barbara Amaya was repeatedly sold between traffickers, abused, shot, stabbed, raped, kidnapped, trafficked, beaten, and jailed all before she was 18 years old. “I had a quota that I was supposed to fill every night. And if I didn’t have that amount of money, I would get beat, thrown down the stairs. He beat me once with wire coat hangers, the kind you hang up clothes, he straightened it out and my whole back was bleeding.”
As David McSwane recounts in a chilling piece for the Herald-Tribune: “In Oakland Park, an industrial Fort Lauderdale suburb, federal agents in 2011 encountered a brothel operated by a married couple. Inside ‘The Boom Boom Room,’ as it was known, customers paid a fee and were given a condom and a timer and left alone with one of the brothel’s eight teenagers, children as young as 13. A 16-year-old foster child testified that he acted as security, while a 17-year-old girl told a federal judge she was forced to have sex with as many as 20 men a night.”
One particular sex trafficking ring catered specifically to migrant workers employed seasonally on farms throughout the southeastern states, especially the Carolinas and Georgia, although it’s a flourishing business in every state in the country. Traffickers transport the women from farm to farm, where migrant workers would line up outside shacks, as many as 30 at a time, to have sex with them before they were transported to yet another farm where the process would begin all over again.
This growing evil is, for all intents and purposes, out in the open.
Trafficked women and children are advertised on the internet, transported on the interstate, and bought and sold in swanky hotels.
Indeed, as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, the government’s war on sex trafficking—much like the government’s war on terrorism, drugs and crime—has become a perfect excuse for inflicting more police state tactics (police check points, searches, surveillance, and heightened security) on a vulnerable public, while doing little to make our communities safer.
So what can you do?
Educate yourselves and your children about this growing menace in our communities.
Stop feeding the monster: Sex trafficking is part of a larger continuum in America that runs the gamut from homelessness, poverty, and self-esteem issues to sexualized television, the glorification of a pimp/ho culture—what is often referred to as the pornification of America—and a billion dollar sex industry built on the back of pornography, music, entertainment, etc.
This epidemic is largely one of our own making, especially in a corporate age where the value placed on human life takes a backseat to profit. It is estimated that the porn industry brings in more money than Amazon, Microsoft, Google, Apple, and Yahoo.
Call on your city councils, elected officials and police departments to make the battle against sex trafficking a top priority, more so even than the so-called war on terror and drugs and the militarization of law enforcement.
Stop prosecuting adults for victimless “crimes” such as growing lettuce in their front yard and focus on putting away the pimps and buyers who victimize these young women.
Finally, the police need to do a better job of training, identifying and responding to these issues; communities and social services need to do a better job of protecting runaways, who are the primary targets of traffickers; legislators need to pass legislation aimed at prosecuting traffickers and “johns,” the buyers who drive the demand for sex slaves; and hotels need to stop enabling these traffickers, by providing them with rooms and cover for their dirty deeds.
That so many women and children continue to be victimized, brutalized and treated like human cargo is due to three things: one, a consumer demand that is increasingly lucrative for everyone involved—except the victims; two, a level of corruption so invasive on both a local and international scale that there is little hope of working through established channels for change; and three, an eerie silence from individuals who fail to speak out against such atrocities.
But the truth is that we are all guilty of contributing to this human suffering. The traffickers are guilty. The consumers are guilty. The corrupt law enforcement officials are guilty. The women’s groups who do nothing are guilty. The foreign peacekeepers and aid workers who contribute to the demand for sex slaves are guilty. Most of all, every individual who does not raise a hue and cry over the atrocities being committed against women and children in almost every nation around the globe—including the United States—is guilty.
Cornell professor and long-time Zero Hedge friend, David Collum recently appeared on an episode of the Quoth the Raven podcast to talk all things conspiracy. Collum is an economic commentator, chemist, Betty R. Miller Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Cornell University and is known for writing his “Year in Review”, which appears here on Zerohedge at the end of every year.
On the episode, host Chris Irons notes that Collum’s appearance was prompted by a recent Tweet he put out, in defense of being a conspiracy theorist which sparked a massive social media response and outpouring of reactions, both pro and con.
Collum Thinks Jeffrey Epstein Could Have Been Working For “Powerful People” And “Setting People Up”
The discussion starts with analysis of the current Jeffrey Epstein fiasco and Collum ponders what “can of worms” could open for Bill Clinton and Donald Trump as a result of Epstein going to trial and documents relating to his indictment coming to light.
“It’s going to be bi-partisan,” Collum says about the Epstein allegations. “Epstein was working for powerful people, to get dirt on powerful people. Epstein wasn’t just a dirtball, he was setting people up,” he continues.
“Nowadays getting photographed on a boat with a blonde sitting on your lap doesn’t even cause you to lose a vote. Now they gotta get you with something much dirtier. I think that’s where the underage kids come in. I think Epstein has been building a portfolio of dirt, like J. Edgar Hoover.”
“What if that crazy ass pizzagate conspiracy turns out to be true?” he asks.

Collum Doesn’t Buy The 9/11 Narrative – “Physics Tells Me There’s Problems”
Collum then discusses why he doesn’t believe the mainstream narrative behind the 9/11 attacks. He cites physics, Building 7 and the lack of video footage of the plane crashing into the Pentagon as two of the big reasons that he questions the official story.
“I think there’s problems with 9/11, but no one wants to say that because they’re embarrassed to say that. But the laws of physics tell me there’s problems. I don’t give a shit about the squibs or Larry Silverstein saying they decided to pull the building. When I watch two towers come down perfectly and I go ‘chaos theory alone says they should have gone asymmetric and stopped tumbling’…”
“”I can’t believe Building 7 should have fallen. There’s really not a shred of footage of the plane hitting the pentagon. Not one frame. The official frame isn’t a frame. If someone’s got the footage, let me see it.”

Collum Doesn’t Believe the Las Vegas Shooter Story – “There Were People Saying ‘You’re All Going To Die'”
Dave also weighs in at length on the Las Vegas shooting, questioning with the host why a motive was never found, how somebody could get rich playing video poker as the shooter was alleged to have, whether or not there were character actors on the news after the event and what happened to the security guard who was involved and only gave one quick interview on the Ellen show before “relocating” to Mexico.
“There’s about 150 things that just don’t add up,” Collum says about the Steven Paddock Las Vegas narrative.
He speaks about the security guard from the day of the shooting:
“You got Jesus the security guard. He gets shot in the f*cking leg then all of a sudden goes off the radar. Then he disappears and the word is that he’s gone to Mexico. The explanation is that he had a vacation planned. Then he comes back with a cane and comes back – and does one interview with Ellen Degeneres.”
Collum also talks about other mysterious occurrences from the day of the shooting:
“There were people saying there was a couple walking around the infield saying ‘You’re all going to die in 45 minutes’ – and then they got escorted out. And then, ‘boom boom boom’, a lot of them died!”
Collum and the host also take a little bit of time talking about JFK, the moon landings, negative interest rates and the effect of Central Bank policy on the global economy.
The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) is cracking down on the multi-billion dollar business of human trafficking in the U.S.
In June, 1,700 people were arrested nationwide for allegedly committing child sex and exploitation crimes as part of a nationwide DOJ initiative called, “Operation Broken Heart.”
“As the perception of sexual exploitation of children continues to move from windowless vans in back alleys to Dark Web sites on the Internet, the investigation and prosecution of these vile crimes must continue to evolve,” said Bobby L. Christine, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Georgia.
“We are determined, with our law enforcement partners, to find these criminals wherever they try to hide and protect the innocent from victimization.”
This operation, conducted during April and May by the Internet Crimes Against Children task forces, resulted in the arrests of nearly 1,700 suspected online child sex offenders. The task forces identified 308 offenders and 357 child victims.
The task forces investigated more than 18,500 complaints of technology-facilitated crimes targeting children and delivered more than 2,150 presentations on Internet safety to over 201,000 youth and adults nationwide, the DOJ reports.
Human trafficking crimes, defined in Title 18, Chapter 77 of federal law, involve “the act of compelling or coercing a person’s labor, services, or commercial sex acts,” according to the DOJ’s website.
“The coercion can be subtle or overt, physical or psychological, but it must be used to coerce a victim into performing labor, services, or commercial sex acts.”
Prior to Operation Broken Heart, the DOJ’s human trafficking enforcement website reads like a rap sheet of criminals arrested nationwide.
In June, a Tampa man was arrested and charged with trafficking two teen girls; a Houston man was convicted of sex trafficking adult women by force; a federal judge sentenced a man to life in prison for forcing women and children to engage in commercial sex acts in Chicago and the suburbs.
In May, a federal jury convicted 27-year-old Houston resident and member of The Sauce Factory for conspiracy and sex trafficking.
In March, a former Stockton, California, a couple was convicted of human trafficking charges related to forced labor of foreign nationals; in New York, the founder of “NXIVM,” a purported self-help organization based in Albany, was arrested for sex trafficking and forced labor conspiracy.
His secret society allegedly branded women with his initials, and women served as his slaves whom he coerced into performing sex acts.
Between January and March 2019, nine defendants were sentenced to significant prison terms for sex trafficking and related offenses in Des Moines.
In February, two Delaware men pleaded guilty to sex trafficking a 15-year-old girl in Baltimore; in San Diego, the last of 12 members of a Westside Crips criminal street gang pleaded guilty to a racketeering conspiracy involving drug trafficking, sex trafficking, and other violent crimes.
In January, a leader of a Queens, N.Y.-based child sex trafficking ring was sentenced to 15 years in prison for trafficking a dozen minors in New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, using Backpage to advertise underage girls for sex.
“Children are supposed to be protected by adults, not used as a means to make money,” William F. Sweeney, Jr., Assistant Director-in-Charge of the FBI’s New York Field Office said in a prepared statement.
According to the national hotline, HumanTraffickingHotline.org, there were 4,460 reported cases of human trafficking in 2017 from the calls the hotline received.
The 10 states with the highest number of reports of human trafficking are California, Texas, Florida, Ohio, New York, Michigan, Nevada, Georgia, Illinois, and Pennsylvania.
Of the top three, more than 800 human trafficking cases were reported in California. In Texas, 433 cases were reported, with the majority of victims being foreign nationals.
Of the 329 reported cases of human trafficking in Florida, 215 cases involved sex trafficking; 120 victims were minors and 277 victims were female.
