There are two documentaries out about Jeffrey Epstein. One, “Who Killed Jeffrey Epstein?” is part of a series by Investigation Discovery. The other is a Netflix release “Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich” based on a book by James Patterson.
But, as Elizabeth Vos points out in an article in the Consortium News (6/18/20), neither covers Epstein’s place in a larger political narrative. In treating Epstein’s activities as separated from their political context, they turn Epstein into a sexual predator, committing crimes that float free of their political context.
Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell were part of an international scheme to compromise and then blackmail influential people. There is evidence that this operation was part of the compromising of the Republican party long before Trump became the nominee.
Even though Epstein’s death in prison is widely accepted and indeed repeatedly reported as a “suicide” no thinking person can accept that narrative on face value. There is so much that is suspicious about the death and there is a plethora of evidence of the interests of powerful and rich people in his silence. Epstein knew the secrets of a lot of powerful people and his death was essential to protect those people. The refusal of the media to question that death is just part and parcel of their subservient status with regard to those in power.
Ghislanie Maxwell, who had finally been arrested in New Hampshire on July 2, 2020, is the daughter of Robert Maxwell, the former owner of the New York Daily News and The Mirror. He was given what Vos describes as a “state funeral” in Israel after his mysterious death in 1991. Maxwell “fell off” his yacht in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, much like enemies of the Russian state repeatedly “fall” out of windows.
Israeli sources say that Epstein worked for Israeli military intelligence. Ari Ben-Menache, a former Israeli intelligence officer, told Consortium News that Robert Maxwell introduced his daughter and Epstein to Israeli intelligence after they engaged in a blackmail operation for Israel.
According to Ben-Measche’s book “Epstein: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” “[Epstein] was taking photos of politicians f**king fourteen-year-old girls — if you want to get it straight. They [Epstein and Maxwell] would just blackmail people, they would just blackmail people like that,” he says in the book.
