(Friday Church News Notes, August 16, 2019,,, 866-295-4143) - The following is excerpted from “Dennis Prager on Google restricting PragerU videos,” Fox News, Aug. 7, 2019: “Radio host and PragerU President Dennis Prager said Wednesday on ‘Fox & Friends’ that freedom of speech is being threatened by Google, pointing out content from his own platform that has repeatedly been restricted by YouTube. In a new Wall Street Journal column, Prager wrote that a video called ‘The Charlottesville Lie,’ from CNN’s Steve Cortes, was quickly moved to the ‘restricted list’ on Monday just hours after it was posted. ‘This happened two weeks after a Senate hearing at which a Google representative swore under oath that the company doesn’t censor based on political views,’ he wrote. ... Prager added that the video was also removed from Twitter after complaints from the left. He explained that a video from Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz called ‘Israel’s Legal Founding’ was also placed on the restricted list by Google-owned YouTube, along with Prager’s own video about the Ten Commandments. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, asked a Google representative at a recent hearing how ‘The Ten Commandments: What You Should Know’ made it onto a restricted list. The man said with a straight face, ‘because it mentions murder.’ ... Prager said Dershowitz told him in the upcoming film No Safe Spaces that he fears the left ‘much more than the right.’”
(Friday Church News Notes, August 16, 2019,,, 866-295-4143) - The following is excerpted from “Illinois gov. signs ‘extreme’ abortion bill,” The Christian Post, June 12, 2019: “Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker signed into law on Wednesday a bill that pro-lifers are calling the most ‘extreme’ late-term abortion measure in the country. ‘The governor and the Democratic supermajorities who fast-tracked this legislation have created a new death penalty in Illinois, with no possibility of appeal, for viable unborn preemies,’ said Peter Breen, former Illinois representative and vice president of Thomas More Society, in a statement. The Reproductive Health Act, or SB 25, establishes a fundamental right to have an abortion while removing all rights from the unborn. It repeals the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, legalizing late-term abortion, even when there is fetal viability, ‘to protect the life or health of the patient.’ The bill broadens the definition of ‘health of the patient’ to include (but not limited to) physical, emotional, psychological and familial health and age. ‘This bill is a horrible contradiction of fundamental scientific truths and the work that I do every single day,’ said Emily Kelly, a neonatal ICU nurse at a major Chicago hospital, according to Illinois Right to Life. ‘Under this law, every single one of my patients could be legally killed in utero in our state.’ Other provisions in the Reproductive Health Act include requiring private insurance companies to cover abortion with no exceptions for religious institutions explicitly made in the bill and allowing non-physicians, such as advanced practice registered nurses, to perform abortions. ... Gov. Pritzker said the new law is a ‘giant step forward for women’s health.’ ... ‘The legacy of this governor, and any legislator who voted to pass this law, will be that of cruel dehumanization of unborn Illinoisans on a mass scale,’ said Breen. ‘They will bear the legacy of thousands of late-term dismemberment abortions inflicted on perfectly healthy, viable children.’”


 The British Museum tries to counter an ugly truth long captured in Western art
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
Raymond Ibrahim is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center.
The British Museum recently announced a “special exhibition,” opening in October 2019, and titled “Inspired by the East: How the Islamic World Influenced Western Art.” According to the museum, it is meant to counter “stereotypes” of Muslims and will “highlight just how extensive and enduring the cultural exchange between the west and Islamic world has been.”
There is of course a less admirable “cultural exchange between the west and the Islamic world” that “influenced” generations of European painters—one which recently made the news, “triggering” many on both sides of the Atlantic, and possibly prompting this new exhibition in response: the sexual enslavement of European women by Muslims.
Around May, 2019—and to highlight the apparent threat male Muslim migrants pose to German women—Alternative for Germany (AfD), a political party founded in 2013, began using a painting created in France in 1866 titled “Slave Market.”  The painting “shows a black, apparently Muslim slave trader displaying a naked young woman with much lighter skin to a group of men for examination,” probably in North Africa.  AfD placed images of this painting on posters with the slogan, “So that Europe won’t become Eurabia.”
The director of the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts, which houses the original painting, responded by strongly protesting and calling on the German political party to “cease and desist in using this painting” (even though it is in the public domain).   Other elements in Germany responded with action, so that “party workers have had to repeatedly put up new copies, only to see them destroyed again the following night.”
What to make of all this?  Objectively speaking, the “Slave Market” painting in question portrays a reality that has played out countless times over the centuries: African and Middle Eastern Muslims have long targeted European women—so much so as to have enslaved millions of them over the centuries.
The Muslim demand for, in the words of one historian, “white-complexioned blondes, with straight hair and blue eyes,” traces back to the prophet of Islam, Muhammad, who enticed his followers to wage jihad against neighboring Byzantium by citing its blonde (“yellow”) women awaiting them as potential concubines.
For over a millennium afterwards, Islamic caliphates, emirates, and sultanates—of the Arab, Berber, Turkic, and Tatar variety—also coaxed their men to jihad on Europe by citing (and later sexually enslaving) its women.  Accordingly, because the “Umayyads particularly valued blond or red-haired Franc or Galician women as sexual slaves,” Dario Fernandez-Morera writes, “al-Andalus [Islamic Spain] became a center for the trade and distribution of slaves.”
Indeed, the insatiable demand for fair women was such that, according to M.A. Khan, an Indian author and former Muslim, it is “impossible to disconnect Islam from the Viking slave-trade, because the supply was absolutely meant for meeting [the] Islamic world’s unceasing demand for the prized white slaves” and “white sex-slaves.”  Emmet Scott goes further, arguing that “it was the caliphate’s demand for European slaves that called forth the Viking phenomenon in the first place.”
As for numbers, according to the conservative estimate of American professor Robert Davis, “between 1530 and 1780 [alone] there were almost certainly a million and quite possibly as many as a million and a quarter white, European Christians enslaved by the Muslims of the Barbary Coast,” that is, of North Africa, the telling setting of the painting.  By 1541, “Algiers teemed with Christian captives [from Europe], and it became a common saying that a Christian slave was scarce a fair barter for an onion.”
With countless sexually enslaved European women—some seized from as far as Denmark, Iceland, and even Iceland—selling for the price of vegetables, little wonder that European observers by the late 1700s noted how “the inhabitants of Algiers have a rather white complexion.”
Further underscoring the rapacious and relentless drive of the Muslim slave industry, consider this: The United States of America’s first war—which it fought before it could even elect its first president—was against these same Islamic slavers.  When Thomas Jefferson and John Adams asked Barbary’s ambassador why his countrymen were enslaving American sailors, the “ambassador answered us that it was founded on the laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that … it was their right and duty to make war upon them [non-Muslims] wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners.”
The situation was arguably worse for Eastern Europeans; the slave markets of the Ottoman sultanate were for centuries so inundated with Slavic flesh that children sold for pennies, “a very beautiful slave woman was exchanged for a pair of boots, and four Serbian slaves were traded for a horse.”   In Crimea, some three million Slavs were enslaved by the Ottomans’ Muslim allies, the Tatars. “The youngest women are kept for wanton pleasures,” observed a seventeenth century Lithuanian.
Paintings similar to the one in question — such as Jaroslav Čermák’s  “The Abduction of a Herzegovinian Woman (1861) —portray these Eastern European realities: “Disturbing and extremely evocative, it depicts a white, nude Christian woman being abducted from her village by the Ottoman mercenaries who have killed her husband and baby.”
Even the details of the “Slave Market” painting/poster, which depicts a nude and fair-skinned female slave being pawed at by potential buyers, echoes reality.  Based on a twelfth-century document dealing with slave auctions in Cordoba, Muslim merchants “would put ointments on slave girls of a darker complexion to whiten their faces… ointments were placed on the face and body of black slaves to make them ‘prettier.’” Then, the Muslim merchant “dresses them all in transparent clothes” and “tells the slave girls to act in a coquettish manner with the old men and with the timid men among the potential buyers to make them crazy with desire.”
In short, outrage at the Alternative for Germany’s use of the “Slave Market” painting—which may have partially initiated the British Museum’s new exhibit to “counter stereotypes”—is just another attempt to suppress and sugarcoat the truths of Muslim/Western history, especially in its glaring continuity with the present.   For the essence of that painting—Muslim men pawing at and sexually preying on fair women—has reached alarming levels all throughout Western Europeespecially in the two nations in question, Germany and Great Britain
Note: The historic events, statistics, and quotes narrated above—and more like them—are fully documented in the author’s Sword and Scimitar: Fourteen Centuries of War between Islam and the West— a book that CAIR did everything it could to prevent the U.S. Army War College from learning about.


Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn introduces federal bill to criminalize female genital mutilation
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:

A Tennessee Senator, Marsha Blackburn, has introduced a federal bill that would criminalize female genital mutilation (FGM). It’s about time this law was introduced at the federal level and laws strengthened to aid the growing number of girls who are being abused by this procedure. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “over 500,000 women and girls have either undergone, or are at risk of undergoing the procedure.”

Four months ago, the Department of Justice decided to abandon efforts to uphold America’s FGM law, “concluding it is too weak as written and needs to be changed in order to successfully prosecute anyone.” This decision bore implications for two Michigan doctors, Dr. Jumana Nagarwala and Dr. Fakhuruddin Attar, and six others. Although FGM charges against them were thrown out last November by U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman when he ruled them to be be technically “unconstitutional,” the two doctors still faced conspiracy and obstruction charges that could have sent them to jail for two to three decades, but the DOJ dropped all charges. Defense lawyers also “argued that the defendants are good, hardworking people with deeply held religious convictions who were involved in only mild procedures that are part of their faith,” in complete disregard for the suffering of their victims.
FGM, like many other human rights violations in Islam, is a religiously sanctioned practice, as stated in the Hadiths:
 “Abu al- Malih ibn Usama’s father relates that the Prophet said: ‘Circumcision is a law for men and a preservation of honour for women.’” (Ahmad Ibn Hanbal 5:75)
“Narrated Umm Atiyyah al-Ansariyyah: A woman used to perform circumcision in Medina. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said to her: ‘Do not cut severely as that is better for a woman and more desirable for a husband.’” (Abu Dawud 41:5251)
Reliance of the Traveller — the classic manual of Islamic law — also states that “circumcision is obligatory for men and women.” (‘Umdat al-Salik e4.3)
In the U.S. Currently, laws about FGM differ from state to state, with many states having no laws against it at all.
“Tennessee Senator introduces federal bill criminalizing female genital mutilation,” by Adrian Mojica, Fox 17, August 14, 2019:
NASHVILLE, Tenn.–Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn and Rep. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania have introduced legislation which could criminalize female genital mutilation nationwide.
H.R. 3583 and S. 2017 were each introduced in late June with the goal of overturning a 2018 ruling by a federal judge which found Congress was unable to pass a 1996 law which banned the practice on females under 18 except when done out of medical necessity.
The new bill would again ban FGM on girls under 18 and specifies on laws governing interstate commerce, which Congress has jurisdiction over. Otherwise it is up to the states to pass laws.
Tennessee passed a law this year which went into effect on July 1. Under the Tennessee law, it is a Class D felony to knowingly mutilate a female, facilitate the act, or transport or facilitate a female for FGM.
The state law also extends the statute of limitations for prosecutions and civil actions when it comes to FGM…..


Big Tech Censorship Technology Exposed

Mother of All Google Whistleblowers Exposes Global Criminal Plan to Control All Information

So much for “Don’t Be Evil”

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
Zach Vorhies, one of the most essential Google whistleblower to date, exposes the company’s plan to control the world’s flow of information.
The former Senior Software Engineer breaks down in detail how the company engages in nefarious behavior, including manipulating search results based on their left-wing political agenda.
Vorhies explains how Google hires third parties to create email accounts with one letter or number altered from the email of a well-known person, which then send out spam messages that catch the attention of the AI system and causes the original account to be taken down.
“Google tells them the account’s down for ‘suspicious activity,’ and then they have no way of having any recourse because google is hiding their information,” he said.
Continuing, Vorhies stated, “I’ve never seen Google really address this problem, the exploit, as far as I know, still exists.”
Ultimately, Google is avoiding responsibility, he reveals, by using third parties to terminate accounts.


Zach Vorhies says he hopes more whistle-blowers encouraged to come forward and expose Google

A former Google employee who’s gone public exposing the tech giant’s algorithmic censorship says there’s a secret “patriot network” within the company aware of the political bias, but too afraid to do anything about it.
Speaking to Infowars, Google insider Zach Vorhies described a network of employees, even in the company’s upper echelons, who understand censorship is taking place.
Segment starts at 17:37
“So there’s this weird culture in google – they’re trying to install this monoculture,” the one-time senior software engineer told Owen Shroyer. “And yes, there are people, there’s kind of a ‘patriot network’ inside of Google, but they’re afraid to come out. And some of that extends all the way in to the executive class.”
Vorhies added he hopes his own whistleblower activities will “galvanize” others aware of the censorship practices, but too intimidated to speak out.
“And so the thing is that I felt that if I came forward that I would galvanize other people by paving a path of disclosure for these documents so that people can come forward and say their opinion without violating the NDA (non-disclosure agreement).”
In an interview with Project Veritas after going public, Vorhies expressed a similar wish to see more Google whistle-blowers come forward and expose the company’s bias.
“My message to those that are on the fence is I released the documents. They can go in, they can see everything that Google is doing and then they can see the scale of it. Because I think that there’s a lot of engineers that have a hint that things are wrong, but they don’t understand the colossal scale that it’s at. And so for those people, I say, look at the documents, take the pulse of America, see what’s happening and come and tell the world you know what you already know to be true.”

James Dobson, the 83-year-old founder and president of Family Talk, has seen the handwriting on the wall in regards to Marxism invading America, and he took to his newsletter in August to warn against leftists corrupting America through the sinister ideology.
Dobson, who holds 17 honorary doctorate degrees and is an inductee to the National Radio Hall of Fame, included in his newsletter words from Jack Graham that explained the Biblical views of both Capitalism and Socialism.
Graham, the pastor at Prestonwood Baptist Church who has become an ideological opponent of the Democrat who runs the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the SBC (Graham’s own denomination), laid out the differences between the two political, economic, and worldview systems.
Graham wrote, “Socialism is fundamentally at odds with the Christian worldview because it seeks to suppress all people according to the dictates of the state. No one serious about their Christian faith can accept socialism, and here’s why. Socialism is totally secular and is predicated on atheism. That is a fact. Our faith in Jesus Christ is built on the Word of God, the revelation of Scripture, and the belief that God exists. We believe in the coming resurrection of Christ, and with that faith comes freedom to live an abundant life that is founded on liberty.” Graham continues in Dobson’s newsletter, “Contrast that with Karl Marx, the father of socialism. He considered religion of all types, specifically Christianity, to be what he called “an opiate of the people.” In other words, belief in God is a drug to be used to pacify the public. Marx was the originator of the horribly repressive Soviet style of government. He was also greatly influenced by Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution. It purports to explain the existence of life on earth. Human beings, he said, are nothing more than advanced animals. If that is true, anyone of us can be disposed of at the whim of the state.”
Dobson wrote at the end of Graham’s piece, “What we are facing here is a culture war that is driven by those who hate Christianity and the Church of Jesus Christ. If the far left is successful in capturing the hearts and minds of Americans, the entire world will descend into a spiritual darkness unlike anything that has ever been seen. Please make that a matter of fervent prayer during these next 14 months, and do pass this letter on to your friends and pastors.”
You can read Dobson’s newsletter and his warning against Socialism here. We suspect you’ll find nothing similar in material published by the Southern Baptist Convention.
[Editor’s Note: The post originally stated that Dobson was 69. That is the age of Jack Graham. Dobson is 83.]


Chinese military personnel parade in Shenzhen sports center near Hong Kong

Preparing for invasion?
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
Tens of thousands of China’s People’s Armed Police (PAP) troops are massing inside a sports center just a few kilometers away from Hong Kong.
“The Shenzhen Bay Sports Center was packed with thousands of members of China’s People’s Armed Police (PAP) — the armed forces’ unit dedicated to crushing internal unrest — practising drills on Thursday morning,” reports the Financial Times.
“There are tens of thousands of troops inside but they aren’t letting us inside to clean, I’ve only been able to sneak a peek,” said a worker at the stadium.
According to the FT, despite authorities demanding PAP troops be sealed off from the outside world, “the sounds of boots stomping and thousands of personnel roaring” is echoing throughout the stadium.
The whole area has been turned into a “military restricted zone” and reporters are being asked to leave.
Beijing started massing troops in Shenzhen last week as a show of force to intimidate protesters in Hong Kong.
As we previously reported, experts say China is unlikely to send in armed troops to quell unrest but could disguise soldiers as Hong Kong police officers.
If Beijing did send in troops, they would prefer to rely on the PAP rather than the People’s Liberation Army, which is still notorious for carrying out the Tiananmen Square massacre in 1989
Earlier today, pro-independence political activist Chen Haotian called for a run on Chinese banks, asking that everyone in Hong Kong withdraw their money on the same day.

The autospy on Jeffrey Epstein, the mega-wealthy sex criminal found dead in his jail cell on Saturday, has revealed broken neck bones that are more consistent with strangulation than with suicide.
The report on the autopsy in the Washington Post again raises the question, as The New Americanreported, of whether Epstein, indicted for sex trafficking girls as young as 14, was the victim of a Deep State hit given his connection to and knowledge of rich and powerful global elites.
The Post provided a detailed report not just on Epstein’s autopsy but on why it shows that Epstein might have been murdered.
What the Broken Bones Mean According to the Post, Epstein’s hyoid bone was broken, which can occur in suicides of older men. “But they are more common in victims of homicide by strangulation, the experts said.”
Just above the Adam’s apple, the hyoid is the only bone in the anterior of the neck, an anatomy website explains, and does not directly connect with other bones. It stabilizes the neck, anchors the tongue, and moves up during swallowing.
The autopsy was finished Sunday. Sources told the Post that the office of New York City’s chief medical examiner, Barbara Sampson, is still asking questions about the death given the hyoid break.
Jonathan L. Arden, president of the National Association of Medical Examiners, said a hyoid can be broken in many circumstances but is more commonly associated with homicidal strangulation than suicidal hanging.
Arden, who was not involved in the Epstein autopsy, said that in general, a finding of a broken hyoid requires pathologists to conduct more extensive investigation. That investigation can include analysis of the location of the noose, how narrow the noose is, and if the body experienced any substantial drop in the course of the hanging.
The age of the deceased is also important, Arden said. The hyoid starts out as three small bones with joint-like connections but hardens during middle age into a U-shape that can break more easily.
“If, hypothetically, the hyoid bone is broken, that would generally raise questions about strangulation, but it is not definitive and does not exclude suicidal hanging,” he said.
The Post cited two studies that showed the hyoid rarely breaks in a suicidal hanging. One study of 20 such deaths in Thailand turned up just five. Another study in India showed that just 16 of 264 cases, or six percent, showed broken hyoids.
As well, the Post reported, hyoid fractures were a bone of contention in other suspicious or at least controversial deaths.
One involved a young prisoner in 2008. He supposedly died by his hand. But an autopsy that revealed a hyoid break “fanned racial tension and fueled conspiracy theories about the suspect’s death in Prince George’s County, Md.”
Another case was that of Eric Garner, who died after a New York City police officer put him in a “chokehold.” Garner’s autopsy revealed an intact hyoid. The officer’s defenders disputed the “chokehold” claim, and argued, the Post noted, that the absence of broken hyoid meant the officer didn’t kill Garner.
The city medical examiner rejected that claim.
Other Mysteries But the broken hyoid isn’t the only suspicious factor in the registered sex offender’s death.
Epstein was on suicide watch after an attempt a month ago, but officials took him off. As well, they were supposed to check his cell every 30 minutes, but left him alone for hours before they found him dead. Third, his cellmate was removed just before he died.
Those facts have skeptics wondering whether Epstein really did hang himself given his Deep State connections to the world’s monied and political elites. Epstein was a member of the Trilateral Commission and Council on Foreign Relations, and according to one report, skated free of a federal sex-trafficking indictment in 2008 because he was somehow connected to an intelligence agency, or because the Bush administration was trying to protect the reputation of Prince Andrew, one of Epstein’s party pals.
The prince turned up in a photo with his arm around one of Epstein’s victims. Also in the photo is the woman whom police and another Epstein victim claim was his procurer, Ghislaine Maxwell.

Epstein Madam Ghislaine Maxwell Found 

Hiding With CFR Fellow

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
How deep does the Epstein rabbit hole go?
On Wednesday, the Daily Mail gained exclusive knowledge that Ghislaine Maxwell (shown), the former girlfriend and alleged procurer of victims for accused underage sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, is currently living in seclusion at the multi-million-dollar home of tech CEO and Council on Foreign Relations fellow Scott Borgerson.
Maxwell, a socialite and daughter of wealthy British newspaper publisher Robert Maxwell, has been notably absent since Epstein’s arrest last month and apparent suicide on Saturday.
Sources close to the 57-year-old Maxwell revealed that she is in a relationship with Borgerson, 43, and has been living with him at his $3 million oceanfront property in Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts.
“She's become a real homebody, rarely ventures out. She's the antithesis of the woman who traveled extensively and partied constantly with Epstein,” a source told the Daily Mail.
Borgerson, who stays in an expensive Boston apartment during the work week, has been seen in the area running errands and walking Maxwell’s dog.
Maxwell’s lush townhouse on Manhattan’s Upper East Side was sold for $15 million in 2016 by a company that had the same address as Epstein’s New York office.
The former Epstein fixture has been accused of helping recruit girls as young as 14 to sexually service the mysterious financier, whose list of high-profile friends includes former President Bill Clinton, the U.K.’s Prince Andrew, and retail mogul Les Wexner (of Victoria’s Secret and Bath & Body Works fame) — the latter of whom has been speculated to be the primary source of Epstein’s wealth.
Documents that emerged last week of a defamation lawsuit filed against Maxwell by alleged victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre show that Giuffre accused Epstein’s former girlfriend of recruiting her as a sex slave when she was just 16.
Per the documents, Maxwell forced her to have sexual relations with prominent men such as former New Mexico governor Bill Richardson, former U.S. Senator George Mitchell, and financier Glenn Dubin.
Giuffre’s boyfriend also claimed that she was made to engage in threesomes with Epstein and Maxwell.
Maxwell has denied any wrongdoing. Although she and multiple female Epstein employees accused of aiding in his sex trafficking have not been criminally charged, legal sources say that may change now that Epstein is out of the picture.
“Those who had leverage as potential cooperators in the case now find themselves as the primary targets,” former federal prosecutor Jacob S. Frenkel told the AP. “They no longer have anyone against whom to cooperate.”
Attorney General William Barr issued a solemn warning on Monday to Epstein’s accomplices: “Let me assure you that this case will continue on against anyone who was complicit with Epstein. Any co-conspirators should not rest easy. The victims deserve justice and they will get it.”
Borgerson, Maxwell’s current partner, is the CEO of CargoMetrics, a Boston-based technology company whose big-data machine tracks and analyzes global maritime trade.
He has denied that Maxwell is living with him, although he called her a “former friend.”
According to his LinkedIn profile, Borgerson spent two years with the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) as a Visiting Fellow for Ocean Governance and an International Affairs Fellow.
Borgerson’s CFR bio states that his responsibilities in those roles included “examining the foreign policy implications of increased access in the melting Arctic Ocean” and “[directing] CFR’s roundtable series on strategic ocean governance as part of the program on international institutions and global governance, funded by the Robina Foundation.”
The CFR is a globalist think tank with an overarching aim of eroding American national sovereignty in favor of creating world government. Its ranks include many of the most prominent Americans in government, business, and the media. The CFR regularly helps its members attain prominent positions in each of those spheres of society.
Jeffrey Epstein was a member of both the CFR and its sister organization, the Trilateral Commission.
Robert Maxwell, Ghislaine’s late father, who served six years as a member of the British Parliament before devoting himself to building a media empire, had ties to the KGB, MI6, and the Israeli intelligence service Mossad.
The British Foreign Office called Maxwell “a thoroughly bad character and almost certainly financed by Russia.” The controversial figure was found dead in 1991, having drowned after falling from his yacht, the Lady Ghislaine (named after his daughter).
These ties, along with Epstein’s own claims that he was gathering dirt on important public figures (his residences were wired with cameras throughout) have led to speculation that he was running a blackmail operation on behalf of the intelligence community.
This would appear to be supported by a former White House official who said that Epstein’s intelligence ties led U.S. Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta to cut the infamous non-prosecution plea deal with him back in 2007.
At the time, Acosta was U.S. district attorney for the Southern District of Florida. The deal granted Epstein immunity to all federal charges, halted the investigation, and sealed the indictment.
A former senior White House official told [journalist Vicky] Ward that Epstein’s name came up when Acosta was interviewing for the Secretary of Labor job with the Trump transition team.
“Is the Epstein case going to cause a problem [for confirmation hearings]?” Acosta reportedly asked.
“I was told Epstein ‘belonged to intelligence’ and to leave it alone,” Acosta explained to his Trump team interviewers.
While Epstein’s mysterious “suicide” means he took some of his secrets to the grave, his death has at least one silver lining: Many Americans are now willing to consider that perhaps there was some truth to all the “wild Epstein conspiracy theories” after all.
