And there were never any photographs of Epstein with anybody and anybody who says differently is a lying conspiracy theorist.

Gotta get that in before the Media does. I'm calling dibs on it, and they owe me a Nickel every time they say it. I expect to be rich. Smile

Now you see why I had to post this one sentence "essay".

Is anyone surprised?
I was thinking about the value of an intelligence operation like this in the dawning age of DeepFake technology. On one hand, why go to the problem of securing girls, transporting them across national borders, setting up marks for dodgy sex, just to produce a film or video to be used for blackmail? Now you can just pay a technician to operate a workstation for a couple of hours and produce anything you can imagine, starring your mark. On the other hand, eventually the value of such evidence in court will be zero. The mark can just claim "DeepFake" and get off. The most you can get for your trouble is some bad publicity.
The question I've been pondering is not "why?", but "why now?". Maybe the intelligence agencies want to make use of whatever is in Epstein's safe while it still has some value, and they're shutting down the operation and cleaning up loose ends.
You, Mr. Epstein, were a loose end.

Of course they say this with a straight face and it gets lots of recs, but if anyone blames the Clintons for it?

In the real world, sure. But not in the world of QAnon… watch, they’ll blame her, Obama, Pelosi, and maybe AOC for it by next week. Sick bastards.

lol...that site has been nothing but a conspiracy theory since Her lost the election.

Don’t spout conspiracy theories. I just read a whole bag of them from RWNJ, and as a big surprise, they all pointed the fingers to the Clintons. (*groan*)

As detroit mentioned in the other Epstein essay here, you are constantly watched while on suicide watch and put in cells that remove the possibility of a hanging so how the hell did he do that?
This was the first thing I read this morning and I just laughed because I had written mere hours before that the chances of him making it to trial was slim. Of course he killed himself.

@snoopydawg Have they decided that because he was such a staunch supporter of Israel any further investigation is clearly anti-semitic in nature?

I'm willing to lay money on that one coming out.

Funny how fast "RWNJ"'s have a complete conspiracy theory all set up and ready to go! Actually they didn't. They just have a term for how this always just mysteriously seems to happen for the Clinton's Benefit. They Call it Arkancide... Symptoms include being a political enemy or "traitor" to the Clintons. So, every time something happens that fits the pattern... It's of course a conspiracy theory to mention that it happened.

I wonder if the Russian trolls are spreading the story Congress should look into that as well as Facebook

Before Russia Gate's pysops happened the minute people heard that Epstein was dead they would either blame the Clintons for it because of how many times Bill flew on the plane (25-26) or if it never happened they would be blaming Trump because of all the pictures of him and Epstein even though there are just as many of the Clintons with him. But now it's Barr too because he didn't recuse himself even thought there are lots of ties to his father and Epstein and Barr's law firm.....

@Dr. John Carpenter

Just a week ago Epstein was either attacked in his cell which he claimed or he attempted to harm himself. I thought I had read that his lawyers were upset that he hadn't been in protective segregation before because of how high profile he was and that they were insisting on it now.

Lots of high profile people were given immunity in 2006 when the first deal was made and the files released yesterday were from a case that has been settled so this might mean the end of any consequences for the people who were named who were probably sweating bullets yesterday when the files were release and breathing a sigh of relief this morning and thanking the Dawg above.

I am very proud of the people here who were more concerned about the victims of Epstein and his pals then they were of scoring points and tying it more to Clinton or Trump. Enough people knew what he and his pals had done and yet they said nothing about it. Trump was the only one who did talk to the authorities about this way back when. Others pulled a Sgt. Schultz.

Epstein's activities were not a Democratic or Republican problem.

They were an oligarch problem.

Which is why Jeffrey Epstein is now dead. And it's why I have no doubt whatsoever that he really is, in fact, dead.

His death is far too convenient for far too many of the PTB for it not to be true.

"Epstein's suicide," noted Mariotti, "ends the criminal case against him because no one else was charged in the indictment."

With many high-powered men—including President Donald Trump, former president Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew of the United Kingdom, and Harvard attorney Alan Dershowitz—implicated or accused over the years of having ties to Epstein, attending his parties, or even participating in his alleged sex trafficking ring, news of his death immediately sparked conspiracy theories about his demise.

Worth a full read

No sh*t Sherlock. The timing is too sweet to there not be lots of CTs about it. Another one is will there be any proof that Epstein is really dead? How's that for a CT?

Yes in the end THEY always win.

What doesn’t make sense if that after being found ‘unconscious and in the fetal position’ that he wasn’t placed on suicidal watch, unless of course it never was that as he supposedly claimed.

After last nights trove of released docs, naming names, this actually makes more sense.

If someone cared about the risk to his life or should I say testimony.

by the same powers that protected Epstein during the first trial. 40 under aged girls accused them of making them perform for their high up friends and Epstein was only charged for prostitution with a 17 year old girl while Ghislaine got off with no charges.

The files that were just released are from 2015 when Ghislaine and Virginia Guiffre settled the case between them. There are more than one investigations into the plea deal IIRC. The federal one that will look at what Acosta did and one in Florida. I think SDNY is involved in one too and it will be interesting to see if any of them go forward now that he's dead. I just find the timing a bit too convenient. First off why was he arrested out of the blue a few months ago? He had to know that everything was being looked at again and yet he just flies back into the country without a care in the world? Then we hear about the sealed files being released after being told a few weeks ago that they wouldn't be? Strange.. and today he's dead. I literally LOL this morning when I saw this. I just said, "of course he is."

@snoopydawg she still hasn't even been arrested tells me, too, that the same people are still running things. No matter how powerful they are, this killing is extremely high risk behavior, and they might not be able to continue to keep the whole operation under wraps. It could still blow up in their faces. Ghislaine may be a protected long-term operative, but her usefulness is over. Odds are, she's also facing termination.

I have no doubt about that. There has long been talk about child sex trafficking, but it really flared up during the last election, but it was tied to Hillary and called PedoGate. Then lots of celebrities committed suicide out of the blue by hanging themselves with something tied to doorknobs. The chef was one of them. Anthony Bourdain?

See the links I posted below and they pretty much agree with what you said. I just read them and I really don't know what to think. But after the Haiti earthquake a woman tried to remove 30 children who she said were orphans, but many were not. She was arrested and the Clintons got her an attorney. This was in 2010.

This crap has been going on for decades. I've posted Whitney Webb's essays if you're interested in seeing what she has written. Ghislaine might really be in Israel right now. I've seen this on more than this site.

@snoopydawg @snoopydawg a good researcher. She's facing the same limitations in the public record all of us are. I wonder what an experienced reporter at the NYT or WSJ might be able to turn up if the editors weren't taking a "I don't want to go there and really don't want to know" attitude toward this story. By virtually ignoring it for so long, if they actually dug anything up now, it would only make their previous inactivity more obvious. Everybody, including the FBI, has the same incentive to just continue to pretend there's nothing else to see.

Plus, the Feds obviously haven't been completely ignorant of this, but have a stake in protecting their own information gathering operations that have been watching the other watchers, domestic and foreign, for decades. This is one of the largest and most "productive" cooperative international, interagency surveillance and entrapment operations ever.

Nobody wants to be responsible for finally shutting it down and mopping up the mess left behind. That cleanup is just starting and it will be a huge job that nobody is really prepared to carry out. Very messy, and a sure career killer for anyone who touches it.

@Alligator Ed not surprise me one bit if Ghislaine Maxwell meets a similar fate at the same hands as her late father. If you threaten to expose your handlers, even reluctantly, even after many decades of providing valuable service, operational security trumps loyalty. Everyone is expendible, even the Former Prime Minister and Army Chief of Staff, Ehud Barak, who was tied up in this.

Surprising, really, that Barak would get anywhere near Epstein and Maxwell, particularly in recent years. Barak had even gone into business with Epstein, and was photographed leaving his Manhattan townhouse last winter.

Like a lot of people, the former PM treated Epstein as if he was fully protected and untouchable by U.S. authorities. That may have been Epstein's undoing.

The Epstein-Barak relationship is very strange, but Israeli politics, business and intelligence often operates together at cross purposes as if it is outside the reach of any external accountability.

The people have surrendered their power to the State long ago. The State can only be challenged by a coalition of other States. The way that people rescue themselves is by immigration. Just the way you got here. Sensible and sensitive people are leaving. There is always a way to do this, with and without assets, if you truly object to living in a pig's ear.

Only one thing that matters is true. It will be a pig's ear and then an economic disaster for a very long time to come. No one should want to live through that. Run as fast as you can.

@detroitmechworks

I'm not claiming it's an established fact. But I suppose he was, and my supposition is not without logical foundation. Could it be wrong? Yeah. But I'd have to see the evidence of that.

As with 9/11, the tell will be how the establishment responds to this event. If it's a simple suicide, then information will come out about his activities post-mortem, if not in court, then in the press. If it's a murder to cover up others' involvement, there will likely be little or nothing released and we will be moved along to other things.

As for "a Trump supporter," I have no idea "which side" took out a hit on him. It could have been done by any regular passenger on his jet. They were all wealthy and powerful, yes? Epstein didn't seem like the kind of guy to slum it by bringing 99%-ers on the Lolita Express.

I figured it was for Mossad and our spooks. Dirty Deep State. I saw him as an informant, and when he got busted the first time, those orgs protected him. But because of those loud mouth Bs (that's snark for victims) who just wouldn't shut up about it and pestered someone in NY enough that they finally decided to file charges there, he had to be taken out. I just don't think he was smart enough to blackmail that many people that high up by himself. I could be wrong, though.

@Deja in far less of a credible blackmail position when he was taken behind bars. A few phone calls by the would-be blackmailees, and the blackmail problem is solved. Possibly this happened here, who knows.

I read elsewhere of people not believing that he's really dead; so someone posted pics of him being wheeled into the hospital. Do people's hands and lower arms turn jaundice yellow after death by hanging? The apparent bruising or dark areas at left temple region and left ear could be explained away, I suppose, but yellow hands and arms, in complete contrast to color of stomach and face seems odd to me.

of his head and especially the earlobe where he has an interesting ear thingy.

Why would this picture have been allowed to be taken and released? Almost like someone is working hard to make sure people think he's really dead.

@snoopydawg
Also, I stumbled across a Twitter feed where ppl were saying that the head is a whole lot larger than the heads of the medics and the unmarked guard guy.

Others think it's not him, but a lookalike actor because his eyes are closed and hands in the position they're in. I just wonder why the hands are yellow.

Lots of people not believing it's even him, let alone that he's really dead.

Has Q resurfaced since 8chan was censored? I'd be curious to know what he has to say about all of this.

because they had to say that in order to explain how he was able to commit suicide.
But...now he’s suicidal, now he’s not?

Can’t have it both ways.

Sounds like they are trying to pull rabbits out of a hat.

Now you see it, now you don’t.

Back when Epstein was arrested, I wondered why NOW? I know the Miami Herald was investigating the case for some time, victims were pursing justice in civil court, and the "me too" movement was now on the radar, but.....I've learned over time that in politics, one can't always trust their own eyes.

Didn't she commit suicide too and her little black book was never found? Oh yeah the VIA will protect themselves at all costs.

@snoopydawg Please explain your obscure reference. I concocted an opinion as to what this means. Do you concur?

VIA = Very Important Assholes

Or did you mean any of the following

Vehicle Internal Architecture
Vicenza Institute of Architecture (very close to my daughter's swamp in FL.)
Valencia Industrial Association
Versatile Integrated Avionics
Visual Immunoassay

or any of the dozen + other listed recognized acronyms.
Every poster should be cognizant that their favored acronyms are neither universally beloved or even recognized by many readers. The first time an acronym is used, outside of the widely understood ones, should be explained in full before assigning an acronym to them. I do not upvote any essay or comment which uses arcane, obscure, or indefinite acronyms. Your comment gets the same from me--no approval. Reveal your meaning and I might reconsider.

@snoopydawg but the explanation merely deflects from your usage of VIA to an unacronymized phrase by The Other Maven. So, no upvote yet.

@TheOtherMaven
Just to make sure that I am reading it and understanding it in the right way.
And as there have been so many recs, I’m hesitant to respond because perhaps it’s me that’s not quite getting it. That I’m willing to concede..

But here’s my quandary.
If it was so blatantly obvious to everyone, that even cartoons were made of it beforehand and this was 100% predictable, why then was nothing done about it?

We all knew he was a dead man walking outside or inside so surely they must have known it too.

I’m just not getting nor believing any of these budget cuts, overtime, or the bs camera malfunctions.

If we knew it, they surely knew it too.

Because it's in the interests of a whole lot of really uber-rich and hyper-powerful people that Jeffrey Epstein be stone dead.

Either he was left with the means to kill himself and did so, or he was murdered. But you can rely on his being dead, unless someone provides direct, good-quality evidence to the contrary.

@snoopydawg what if it was Aliens?

Hear me out! It would be JUST LIKE ALIENS! You know, framing completely innocent humans for multilevel blackmail schemes involving secret alien hybrids! I mean, nobody would believe that suicides linked to a powerful human would be actually coincidence, and thus they'd naturally suspect the most good and pure among them, ensuring that when the Trump Doppleganger clone finishes the preparations for selling us all into the intergalactic slave market they wouldn't resist, instead believing that their best chance was actually evil!

Replace Jesus and Israel for the pertinent bits, and you'll have something close to what the conspiracy theory we're supposed to be believing in is... I think.

The aliens are just framing the Russians right to take the blame on this? Yeah, I have long thought that little grey aliens were laughing their little grey butts off at the foolishness of humans.
