Epstein: The Real Target
[Comments enabled]

The blowback -- and blowup -- is likely to be highly amusing on this one.

(CNN) Florida-based billionaire Jeffrey Epstein has been indicted on new charges related to alleged sex crimes involving minors, law enforcement sources told CNN on Saturday.

Epstein was arrested Saturday and is expected to appear in federal court in New York on Monday.

Epstein faces charges brought by US prosecutors in Manhattan, after previously evading similar charges when he secured a non-prosecution deal with federal prosecutors in Miami.

Note a couple of points here:

1. The non-prosecution agreement was ruled "egregious" after review (over a decade down the road!) itself.  Guess who was neck-deep in all of this at the time it was negotiated?  No, that wasn't Obama -- it was Bush, and, of course, ex-President Clinton.

2. Guess who effectively blocked review while he was in office?  That would be Obama, with, of course, heavy ties to Senator (and then Presidential candidate) Cankles, the "wife" of avowed serial philanderer Bill Clinton who we know, factually, solicited and obtained blowjobs from an intern in the White House.  She, however, was an adult and thus at least theoretically could legally consent.  Such is not the case for those under the age of consent in a given state and, in the context of federal law where movement across a state or national boundary is involved, under the age of 18.

While there is (not yet) proof that Clinton was involved in these alleged felonies there's plenty of circumstantial evidence.  There's also circumstantial evidence tying British Royalty and several high-powered legal folks in the US to these events as well, including direct accusations by some of the known victims.

Why is SDNY chasing this now?  Because they hate Trump, and Acosta, who was neck-deep as the prosecutor involved, works for Trump now.  Therefore, this is "get Acosta and hope Trump gets caught in the net."

If Trump is involved in this then he deserves to fry.  But I'll take the under on that one.  The record does show that he did boot Epstein from Mar-a-Largo for allegedly attempting solicitation of an under-age girl.

As for Clinton and those others, on the other hand, I'll go the other way.  One of the more-damning pieces of evidence is Epstein's aircraft logbook, which contains entries for the people on board; for what possible legitimate purpose were, for example, both Clinton and some underage girl -- or group of girls -- on the plane at the same time?

Note that while CNN is running a story on this, at the top of the page, in fact while Fox News has exactly nothing anywhere on their page at this time on the same subject.  Gee, I wonder why not?

The blowback on this is likely to get real interesting.  I note that the "deal" that Epstein cut does not exclude prosecution for any act that had a criminal element in another federal district, which would include New York.

It appears he simply thought that being rich, powerful and having the goods on a lot of well-connected people would be sufficient to keep some enterprising federal prosecutor from going after him.  After all, it's not like he didn't fly all over the damn country (and world!) in a plane that had the nickname Lolita Express.

It probably would have been sufficient too, if we had gotten President Cankles.

But we didn't, and the obsessive hatred of the partisan leftward arm of the so-called Just-Us department, hell-bent to get President Trump, has now chosen to perform the DOJ's equivalent of an old saying from wartime: We had to destroy the village to save it.

How's your blood pressure these days Mr. Clinton?

I suspect that the fallout from this arrest will surprise a great many people. If this worm survives the next few weeks, the breadth and depth of the child sex trade may well, finally, come to the surface. The very great variety of powerful people involved will be a stunner, for many.

This IMO is one of the greatest threats to our liberty. For someone to build such a huge and powerful blackmail list and not be prosecuted for so long is a problem beyond magnitude.

How much has this man done with this influence and power???

Well of course they are; SDNY is ground-zero for TDS.

But when you get deranged to the point that you start cooking off nukes in the thought that MAYBE your desired target is in a building within the blast radius the odds are very high that you're going to score an "own goal" in ways you hadn't thought about.

DA: Mr Epstein we can make this all go away. All you need to do is give us information which would lead to the end of the Trump Presidency.

Epstein: Sorry I got nothing on Trump but I've got video of Bill Clinton with 3 twelve year olds, a circus midget and a farm animal.

DA: Nevermind with that - lock him up.

@Themortgagedude -- I suspect it's far more than one.

Reports are they found nude under-age female images in Epstein's apartment in NY when they raided it.

This guy really thought he got away with it. Nope. Now the question becomes "why now?" and the most-obvious answer is TDS, but the blowback on that is likely to be pretty ugly.

I agree that it could be much further reaching than they want it to be.....
Which is why I think nothing will come of it.

They will try for a surgical strike of Right Side casualties....

If the blast radius will be so broad that they destroy their own, they won't detonate.

If the dims really, truly think they can throw one of their own - a pedophile rapist orders of magnitude worse than Harvey Weinstein ever was - under the bus as a "winning" election strategy against Trump, they're nucking futs. Do they really think that frogmarching a string of very well-connected Money Party pedos into the harsh light of a globally watched (s)election somehow ISN'T going to detonate the entire government of this used-to-be-a-country? Oh, wait... blowing up the government by exposing their own horrific abuses and despotism, child rape, trafficking, rampant corruption...? Actually, nevermind. Please do continue, dumbasses. This is going to be one of the few shows I'll watch.

@Bluebird - TDS = Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Incidentally there are now unverified reports flying around that Epstein has put forward a proffer to SDNY offering up the full list of names and irrefutable documentary evidence of those who paid for sex with underage girls in exchange for a plea and sentence of no more than five years. I can't source that yet but I'm trying to run it down.

They have stayed a bond hearing for now and he's staying in jail for the moment, and apparently with good reason -- when they raided his NY residence they apparently found a LOT of lewd material including alleged underage, fully-nude images, at least one of which they were able to identify as one of the girls he allegedly abused and her attorney confirmed that she was underage at the time it was taken. Since he's already a convicted pedo and registered offender on the previous charges and yet still had this material in his possession, and they caught him with it, he's in VERY deep ****. That's where the forfeiture action came from -- that apartment is worth a nice $77 million but in terms of securing a bond it's worthless if the guy really is a billionaire.

He's looking at a life sentence given his age and you can bet he'll be angling to try to get out of that. The problem he has is that it's almost impossible that he'll be bonded out given the scope of his offenses and access to international travel and holdings there, most-particularly his private island from which he can't be extradited by anyone other than the military.

If I was someone who had taken a flight on Lolita Express I'd be ****ting bricks about right now and trying to figure out the best means to commit suicide if the FBI kicks my door down at 0-dark-****-me -- given all those photos I bet that ********** had cameras EVERYWHERE and he's got everything done on a CD or a tape, so if he squeals or worse, if the FBI already has the evidence because it was in that Manhattan residence then those people are all ****ed for sure. In fact that's PROBABLY why he thought he'd gotten away with it -- he had the blackmail material in his possession.

I expect warrants and raids on all of his US properties within days if not hours; any evidence there that implicates other people suddenly becomes worthless in terms of him trying to put forward a proffer since the government will already have it, and that's EXACTLY what it looks like they tried to foreclose with the raid in NYC -- thus, I expect it to be repeated.

There have been rumors flying around for well over a decaded that the guy was actually a front for Mossad who funded and protected him with the agreement that they got to use the resulting evidence for blackmail -- giving Israel whatever it wanted from the United States, "or else." That sounds like a crazy conspiracy theory except for one very serious problem: I've never seen a cogent explanation as to exactly what sort of business Epstein was ever involved in that made him a billion dollars in the first place.

@Themortgagedude Those who hung around the guy -- and he hob-nobbed with pretty much everyone who had a hundred million+ and a lot of people who were important but didn't -- knows if they ****ed any young ones or not.

If they did, and he was there or in the vicinity, they're almost-certainly ****ed. I'll lay 10:1 odds he has tape or digital of every single one of those people doing the nasty, ESPECIALLY if it happened on the plane.

How can a guy be this sick and unable to control himself? There must be plenty of 18 year olds who like money and have no shame.

I'm guessing Trump is clean, but all the accused will be asked to make up stories about him, like that slime ball Michael Avenatti.
