I have said before, Epstein was really creating a sophisticated operation for blackmail. Wall Street used Elliot Spritzer to take down AIG head Hank Greenberg because he refused to allow AIG to issue guarantees for Goldman Sachs’ mortgage-backed securities. They used Elliot Spitzer as the DA of NY to remove Hank Greenberg from AIG which opened the door for the 2007-2009 Crash. Removing Hank Greenberg made the whole Mortgage-Backed CDO Lending possible and the collapse of the Great Financial Crisis. Spitzer was fed info I believe to remove Greenberg by Goldman Sachs. It was Goldman who then sold the idea to AIG when Greenberg was removed.
Spitzer was just a pawn. He thought he was really cleaning up Wall Street. Then when Spitzer turned on Wall Street, guess what? The Patriot Act ordering banks to report anything suspicious turned up checks Spitzer wrote to a hooker. So the Terrorist laws were then used to get rid of Spitzer to save Wall Street Investment Bankers.
Do you also remember the former head of the IMF who also stood in the way of the agenda to remove countries from SWIFT if they did not hand over all people with accounts? Dominique Strauss-Kahn became a target when he was the IMF chief and began to comment critically on the role of the world financial system. I was personally invited to Washington where Edmond Safra of Republic National Bank paid for the IMF dinner that rented the entire National Gallery. I was invited to demonstrate to me how the NY Investment bankers had the IMF in their pocket.
Strauss-Kahn was conveniently sent a maid to create a sex scandal to shut him up when he saw the corruption in the IMF. They removed him under false accusations and cleared the way for the IMF to become a tool of the bankers and the Neocons. That is how the whole Long-Term Capital Management crisis developed because they bribed the IMF to keep the loans going to Russia so they could buy their bonds by paying outrageous amounts of money.
Anna Chapman was a Russian Spy caught in New York City. She was swapped for American spies in 2010 and made headlines in New York. She was stunningly beautiful as well as stunningly successful. Well if you are going to betray secrets, this is far better than the rubber hose treatment. Anna showed up in Ukraine to train with the soldiers leading the rebellion. She has become known as Vladimir Putin’s weapon of mass distraction.
Anyone who thinks that Epstein was just into young girls and committed suicide probably believes Washington really cares about them as well. I seriously doubt that any guy over 40 could possibly tell the difference between a 16/17-year-old and an 18-year-old. So why fool around with a 17-year-old when an 18-year-old would be legal? If I could not tell the difference just by looking, then what would be the thrill? The answer is obviously blackmail.
Take Prince Andrew whose life has been destroyed. Did you know that had he had sex with that girl in London, it would be legal? From the age of 16, a person is considered to be able to give consent to all sexual activity with other people aged 16 or over. The Legal age is 16 in most countries. So why did Epstein create an island in the USA where the legal age is the highest? Something is just not right.
Were Epstein’s targets even told they were under 18? Did getting this honey trap to entangle people force them to do as he directed? So let’s just be real for a second. Maxwell is in prison for soliciting girls but not anyone they supposedly had sex with. So where are the customers to prove that illegal sex even took place? Ah! Conspiracy is a thought crime that is as corrupt as a $3 bill. You do not have to actually carry out a crime, you merely need to intend. So they conveniently never have to produce all the people they targeted in this honey trap scheme.
It seems that this was a service that people hired him to entrap people and then blackmail them into doing whatever they desired.
