Acosta was told to back off

Epstein's connection to intelligence, whether foreign or domestic, almost certainly explains the special "deal of a lifetime" that Epstein related to his 2006 plea bargain.
I also noted that it appeared his real job was to run a blackmail operation to ensnare some of the most wealthy and powerful people on earth. I alluded to the possibility that he was collecting this priceless information on behalf of a third party, and then just today we learn the following via the Daily Beast:

“Is the Epstein case going to cause a problem [for confirmation hearings]?” Acosta had been asked. Acosta had explained, breezily, apparently, that back in the day he’d had just one meeting on the Epstein case. He’d cut the non-prosecution deal with one of Epstein’s attorneys because he had “been told” to back off, that Epstein was above his pay grade. “I was told Epstein ‘belonged to intelligence’ and to leave it alone,” he told his interviewers in the Trump transition, who evidently thought that was a sufficient answer and went ahead and hired Acosta. (The Labor Department had no comment when asked about this.)...

For almost two decades, for some nebulous reason, whether to do with ties to foreign intelligence, his billions of dollars, or his social connections, Epstein, whose alleged sexual sickness and horrific assaults on women without means or ability to protect themselves is well-known in his circle, remained untouchable.

It should be noted the reason I attach credibility to the above is based on who wrote it, Vicky Ward. She has an extensive history of digging into Epstein, and wrote one of the earliest profiles on him back in 2003. As she notes in today’s article:

I spent many months on his trail in 2002 for Vanity Fair and discovered not only that he was not who he claimed to be professionally, but also that he had allegedly assaulted two young sisters, one of whom had been underage at the time. Very bravely, they were prepared to go on the record. They were afraid he’d use all his influence to discredit them—and their fear turned out to be legitimate.

As the article was being readied for publication, Epstein made a visit to the office of Vanity Fair’s then-editor, Graydon Carter, and suddenly the women and their allegations were removed from the article. “He’s sensitive about the young women,” Carter told me at the time. (Editor’s Note: Carter has previously denied this allegation.) He also mentioned he’d finagled a photograph of Epstein in a swimsuit out of the encounter. And there was also some feeble excuse about the article “being stronger as a business story.” (Epstein had also leaned heavily on my ex-husband’s uncle, Conrad Black, to try to exert his influence on me, which was particularly unwelcome, given that Black happened to be my ex-husband’s boss at the time.)

Many people had assumed Epstein was untouchable merely because he had so much dirt on so many powerful people, but it increasingly looks far bigger than that. It appears he may have been untouchable because he was systematically collecting this information on behalf of an intelligence agency. If so, we need to find out precisely who he was working for.
There isn't too much doubt concerning the most likely intelligence agency, given the way in which Epstein's background and connections are being scrubbed as we speak. But the effort is pointless, given the way in which more and more people are noticing the obvious patterns.

Collecting evidence for an intelligence agency? I’m dubious. The alleged crimes too heinous and the timespan too long for him to be some type of turned spy.

I think “protected by some intelligence agency” seems more likely. The swamp scratched Epstein’s back and Epstein returned the favor, all the while everyone collected blackmail evidence on everyone else to ensure no one snitched.

Of course everyone here has read Sailer's about the Maxwells another "family." Family man Epstein's hedge fund was also a complete and utter shell job, no employees, no trading as if he was gifted all that as a cover.

Of course we all want to know who told Acosta to sign off on the deal, or how Barry Krischer Palm Beach states attorney came up with the single charge of solicitation.

Anyway I wonder if Trump had to negotiate a trade Epstein and his perverts for the Iranian deal and other things?

It seems odd to me that whoever was running him or making use of him didn't arrange a convenient plane crash for the guy when they heard about this latest investigation. I mean, if Epstien goes down in a crash and maybe one of the witnesses has an unfortunate accident so as to intimidate the others, wouldn't the whole debacle just fade away?

Either these people aren't as powerful and all knowing as some fear, or it was the Mossad and they just didn't hear about the new investigation until he was arrested. If it was them, I wonder how much pressure APAC et al will bring to bear to mitigate the damage. If the full ugliness of the story is laid bear, will it be enough to break that lobby's power?

Looks like any Saudi involvement will be used to divert attention from the real problem. I also noticed that Pence was suspiciously over-zealous in pledging his allegiance to Israel yesterday, even putting the Israeli flag in front of the American flag in a tweet. I'm not convinced this goon is really even on Trump's side.

Under President @realDonaldTrump, if the world knows nothing else, the world knows this: America STANDS with Israel! [Israeli flag] [US flag]

Is this really our defining characteristic? And is this any different than when Pelosi said that if the capitol burns to the ground our dedication to Israel would be the one thing that remains?

It's all so tiresome. Exhausting, actually.

Remember, an Eastern European nobel prize winner with a single Jewish grandfather is Jewish, despite 75% of their genetic material coming from gentiles (and despite never setting foot in a synagogue).

When a Jew behaves badly, suddenly they are not Jewish because they aren't at synagogue every day. It's the shifting nature of Jewish identity. Sometimes it is heredity, sometimes it is creed, sometimes (etc etc etc).

Note that Wikipedia says they removed the Jewish reference because there is no evidence of religious belief. This ignores the fact that 70% of all Jews are atheists and have no religious beliefs. It also makes Israel's immigration policy a little incongruous.

The goalposts constantly shift to absolve this group of any blame.

Wikipedia editing started a few days back when they removed references to Bill Clinton and Kevin Spacey on Epstein's profile. Of course, they left the reference to Trump.

Google searches that had returned photos of Epstein with Bill Clinton mysteriously now show no results. It's amusing they firmly believe they're fooling anyone.

Blogger Robert Coble July 10, 2019 1:18 PM  

Apparently, Wikipedia has decided there will be no "family"; He did have a father but apparently no mother:

"Epstein was born in 1953 in Brooklyn, New York and grew up in Coney Island, New York. Epstein's father [unnamed] worked for the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation.

More fascinating is his "Personal life" section:

In September 2002, Epstein flew Bill Clinton, KEVIN SPACEY, and Chris Tucker to Africa in his private jet. Flight records show BILL CLINTON flew on Epstein's plane 26 times. Epstein's plane has been nicknamed the "Lolita Express" by media due to his conviction and the accusations of sexual involvement with underage girls made against him.

Epstein was also a longtime acquaintance of PRINCE ANDREW and Tom Barrack, and has attended parties with numerous celebrities, such as President Donald Trump, KATIE COURIC, GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS, and WOODY ALLEN. His contacts also included ISRAELI prime minister Ehud Barak and British prime minister TONY BLAIR. Flight records show Clinton flew on Epstein's plane 26 times. On July 9, 2019, Clinton spokesman Angel Ureña said that in 2002 and 2003, Clinton "took four trips on Epstein's plane with multiple stops and that staff and his Secret Service detail traveled on every leg."

Blogger CBus July 10, 2019 1:31 PM  

Keep an eye on Les Wexner. I have a feeling he will be a large player in this whole saga.

Wexner, an extremely wealthy Jewish man from Columbus worth ~$7b, was Epstein's only confirmed client at his "fund management firm". Wexner is the founder and CEO of L Brands which owns Victoria's Secret and Bath & Body Works. L Brands also used to own La Senza, Abercrombie & Fitch, Express, The Limited, and Justice. Let's just say the man has access to an endless supply to models of all ages.

Wexner used to live in a massive townhouse in Manhattan which he bought for ~$14m, but he gifted it to Epstein when he and his wife moved back to Columbus. Wexner now lives in a massive gated and highly secure compound in a New Albany, a suburb of Columbus which Wexner basically built. A woman has accused Epstein of assaulting her in Wexner's New Albany mansion in the 90s.

Another important factor is that Wexner owns a yacth called The Limitless which was, at one point, the largest privately owned yacht in the world. We all know what the world's elite use yachts for...

So here's a man worth $7b who was Epstein's only client at his fake firm, he runs or used to run numerous women's apparel companies providing easy access to a wealth of super models, he owns one of the largest yachts in the world, he gifted a $14m townhouse in Manhattan to Epstein, and owns a mansion where Epstein is alleged to have committed a sexual assault. Oh, and he's Jewish.

I've noticed a side-effect of the Epstein Affair is a panic among the right at various signs of scrubbing of references to him on google, wiki etc.

Nothing lasts forever, the era of judaic influence is petering out. This is why (((their))) attempts are getting more desperate and obvious. They are struggling to correct a vehicle that is veering off course, and only managing to over-correct and bring the end closer.

That's the good news. The bad news is they won't "suffer" losing their status on the world stage, so when it comes to be, as inevitable, they will certainly look to make the whole world pay if they refuse to allow the judaic era to continue. Fortunately, they have neither the competence or fervency of men like Bernard Baruch or Stephen Wise. Unfortunately, they have the jewish military that Baruch and Wise did not.

The UN report on sex slavery in Slovenia is online. It is truly heart-breaking reading.

President Trump owned a modeling agency. He, himself, would know of malfeasance. The casual disrespect that all people directed at models- he knows. One agency was polite and thoughtful when Melania worked for them for one day- Mr Trump mentioned the agency by name, made a huge deal out of them, on national television.

His wives, and his daughter, and his daughter's friends all worked in the modeling industry. He knows, from all sides, not just from his wife.

As one person thinks he was an FBI informant against the mob in Jersey City, it's almost a fair guess that he was an informant against human trafficking when he opened his modeling agency.

A Vanity Fair article yesterday about Trump's knowledge of Epstein tries to take several sideways shots at Trump, but on the subject of Epstein, it basically admits there's no there there. They say a previous owner of the Enquirer told Trump that Epstein had incriminating photos of Clinton from the island, but that it's unlikely Trump ever would have gone to Epstein's island. They point out that Trump doesn't even like golfing at other people's courses, so it would be out of character and there's no evidence that he did. I don't think they can resist the tar baby, though.

Acosta was a Federal prosecutor, right? And he bowed to pressure from a State AG? If this had happened in 1808, I might believe that tale. In 2008, the power runs the other way. Perhaps the State AG was just relaying a message outside channels from Acosta's DOJ chain of command. Or, perhaps, Acosta's actual boss wasn't in the DOJ, but was in the same intelligence agency that was running Epstein. Or, it's very possible this is a flat out, 100% lie.

Whatever the truth is, we know Acosta's isn't the whole of it.

I wonder who Acosta claims contacted him from the Florida AG's office, and how that person is connected to Hillary?

The dirty Feds busted Epstein long ago and made a deal with him that he could continue on, just install some cameras and keep good records, and you get to continue your pervy ways.

I had a quick look and this change was made by at least 3 different people (undone since), and the last one the editor justifies it with "source does not say his family was Jewish" ... The source actually starts with "Jeffery Epstein, a Jewish".

Because being Jewish is different of having a Jewish family. Obviously.

And the guy proceeds by setting himself as the editor in chief of the page : "Welcome to re-include if properly sourced and there is consensus to include on talk page."

Not only the guy thinks he can take control of the page, but he wants others to provide sources although he just showed he is ignoring them, and he demands a consensus on which he will obviously never agree on.

Amazing.

Blogger Azimus July 10, 2019 9:16 PM  

It needs to be said loud and clear: one month ago this whole Epstein thing was a "wild conspiracy theory." Now that the truth can't be held back any longer, NOW the media, our supposed watch-dogs "democracy dies in darkness" hypocrite jags are scrambling to "report" on Epstein Island, the pedophilia, and so forth.

No honest man should ever approach them again to blow the whistle. It saddens me to say it seems like Putin's Russia cares more about (their own self interested) truth than the modern American journotard and his copy editor.

It is what American Exceptionalism is all about:

It is to understand why the United States opened a consulate in Jerusalem in 1844, 104 years before the creation of the State of Israel, at which time the new consul-general planted an American flag at the Jaffa Gate and declared that the United States thereby extended its protection to the Jews of Jerusalem,

1844, dude.

Paul makes a persuasive argument that Acosta made the decisions. Difficult to discern how this went down but at the least it appears that either Acosta made the decisions or he was pressured by people outside the usual chain of command. That second actually seems more plausible in some ways because what reason would Acosta have personally for going light on Epstein? Prosecutors love to go for the throat, at least that's how it's always seemed whenever they've had the upper hand.

"The most horrific aspect of the plea deal that Acosta approved was immunity for the clients, employees, and associates of Epstein who abused the girls."

Only for acts committed prior to the immunity deal.
Immunity deals rarely cover future criminal activities.

@76- The MSM is reporting in scandal mode on Epstein, which is good. But they're also using the old "everybody knew" tactic. I've seen many articles start out with something like:

Hiding in Plain Sight

Under suspicion for decades, how did the Pedo Mogul get away with it?

You will never receive credit for recognizing the conspiracy back when only crazies did so. Inbetween time--from general knowledge of the Lolita Express to the current relatively open conversation on pederasty cover-up--shall be expunged from the history books.

Somewhat OT:

My social media account has been spamming me this week with paid ads to subscribe to “The Epoch Times.” It appears to be a pro-Trump news publication that Wikipedia says was created by Chinese Americans associated with Falun Gong, is distributed in 35 countries, and is aligned with “Conservatism” and “Anrt-Communism.” The promotion they’re running right now is advertised with a video about memetic warfare and includes a free “Spygate infographic poster” they claim took them 18 months of investigation to detail “the biggest political scandal in American history.” Does anyone here read them and have an opinion about their news coverage?

Blogger Hieroglyph July 11, 2019 4:21 AM  

Personally I'm wondering if the 1 billion coke ship is linked. And maybe it wasn't all coke? Women and children too perhaps?

In 100 years, perhaps we will have some insider intel on the last few weeks. Dead Brother Clinton, Pedo Epstein, Coke Ships, resigning Ambassadors, state visit to the enemy (The Pedo Queen), and on and on. I can't say it's all linked, but the timing of that epic drug haul is interesting.

Btw, once all the evidence is taken, I advocate turning pedo island into a parking lot. A kind of exorcism by missiles. And I don't care much if Pedo Epstein is still on it ...

Someone once posted an article that said in the last days of the Clinton administration a bill was passed that gave Les Wexners yacht special legal powers, I've been looking for the article but can't find it. With Wexner and Clinton both having connections to Epstein it would be interesting if someone could find the article, so we could see what legal powers Wexner and his yacht were giving.

I was called crazy for believing that Epstein, his island, and his plane were used in a large scale pedophile operation. Now it seems that "everyone knew".

Does this mean that soon I will no longer be crazy to believe that Hollywood is a large scale pedo operation and that much of Congress is involved in pedophilia?

I used to think that mostly pedophilia congressmen were Democrats and not many Republicans were. Now I have come to the conclusion that Republicans are in as deep as Democrats. Or almost as deep.

Am I also crazy for believing that this satanic evil started long ago?

Blogger Damelon Brinn July 11, 2019 8:47 AM  

But they're also using the old "everybody knew" tactic.

Yes, they can switch on a dime from "You should be wearing a tinfoil hat if you buy that" to "Come on, that's old news, why are you dragging that up now?" That's one reason all the MSM web sites have opinion sections where they run the articles on topics they don't allow on the main site. If one of those stories breaks their containment field, they can point to those articles and call it old news, even say they reported on it.

Goalpost moving is also very popular. People who a week ago would have said Epstein would never be arrested because he's too connected and powerful, switched to predicting he would be suicided within the week. Now they're starting to say within the month, or that he will be convicted but serve little time in a resort prison. If defeatism is your thing, you can always find a way.

Since the Limitless was built in Germany, it took an Act of Congress to allow it to be flagged as a U.S. vessel.
