Epstein, SAT, the mafia
Only around 2,000 of the 10,000 pages from the Giuffre-Maxwell lawsuit have been released yet.
Maxwell's attorney, Jeffrey Pagliuca, used the bizarre argument that these documents shouldn’t be disclosed because they mention “hundreds of people”, including celebrities: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article...eople.html
As far as I can tell the only way Jeffrey Epstein could’ve amassed a $600 million fortune is through drugs, arms and/or money laundering.
I’ve earlier posted on the role of the CIA front Southern Air Tranport (SAT) in the drugs for arms pipeline to Columbia:
Jeffrey Epstein was the “logistics man” for owner of the Limited Brands (now L Brands), Leslie Wexner. Epstein arranged for Wexner the relocation of Southern Air Transport (formerly Air America) to Columbus, Ohio.
Epstein also helped Les Wexner to supply the war in Iraq through the Wexner Foundation: https://columbusfreepress.com/article/why-epstein-dead
There is an “unsolved” murder case in Ohio connected to Leslie Wexner - Arthur Shapiro, partner in the Schwartz, Shapiro, Kelm & Warren law firm that represented Wexner’s the Limited.
Shapiro was murdered one day before he was scheduled to appear before a Grand Jury in the Internal Revenue Service investigation because he had failed to file income tax returns some 7 years earlier with some questionable investments in tax shelters.
Francis J. Walsh, owner and chief executive officer of Walsh Trucking Company of New Jersey, handled “30 to 35 percent of the Limited’s business”. The Limited, Inc. was Walsh’s single largest customer.
Around the time of Shapiro’s murder, Walsh was handling almost double the amount of the normal transports for Wexner´s the Limited.
In 1988, Walsh was charged with making “illegal pay-offs to reported mob figures”, his “unindicted co-conspirators” included convicted Genovese crime family boss Anthony “Fat Tony” Salerno: http://fraudbusterbob.org/blog/2010/03/0...rder-file/
Anthony “Fat Tony” Salerno was a client of Trump´s mentor Roy Cohn, while Donald Trump himself was also in business with mobster “Fat Tony”:
Firestarter Wrote:Trump’s business was once dependent on Anthony ‘Fat Tony’ Salerno, boss of the Genovese crime family, and Paul ‘Big Paulie’ Castellano, boss of the Gambino crime family, who provided the cement for Trump Tower.
John Cody, an associate of the Gambino family, controlled the cement trucks for Trump Tower.
The business partner of Donald´s father, Fred Trump, William ‘Willie’ Tomasello was also associated with the Gambino and Genovese families.

Farrow, Lutnick, Rothschild, Kirkland & Ellis
It has literally happened dozens of times that shortly after I post on some topic, stories with similar “keywords” are published that bury my posts in the internet “search” results.
Often these stories are quite silly.
On 3 September, I posted in this thread on a strange connection between Jeffrey Epstein, Woody Allen and Mia Farrow.
Only a couple of days later, 6 September, Ronan “Farrow” (son of Mia and possibly Woody Allen or Frank Sinatra) published his own strange tale on Jeffrey Epstein.
Apparently Jeffrey Epstein was funding the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab, which is sort of controversial because of Epstein’s notoriety.
The MIT lab received at least $7.5 million through Epstein, including $2 million from Gates and $5.5 million from Leon Black.
Here’s a mail on Bill Gates’ donation being “directed” by Epstein.
To give this story the publicity it doesn’t deserve, the director of the MIT lab, Joi Ito, had to resign.
In this article the following keywords appear that I’ve also posted in this thread on Jeffrey Epstein:
I’ve previously posted on the connections between Ghislaine Maxwell, the Stowe School, and the son of Robert Maxwell’s business partner Kurt Wallersteiner
See Kurt’s son Anthony Wallersteiner and Fergie at the Stowe School.
There are also connections between Stowe, Cantor Fitzgerald, Fergie and the 9/11 false flag attacks: https://www.lawfulpath.com/forum/viewtop...=31&t=1126
There are more connections between Cantor Fitzgerald CEO Howard Lutnick and Jeffrey Epstein.
In 1992, SAM Conversion Corp. sold 11 E. 71st St. to the 11 East 71st Street Trust (with Epstein as trustee) for "ten dollar" (property transactions are done in this way to prevent public disclosure of its value).
In 1996, the 11 East 71st Street Trust sold the property to the Comet Trust again for "10 dollars". Through the real estate transfer tax, the sale price was an estimated $6.2 million.
The trustee of Comet Trust (can anybody spell Comet Ping Pong?) was one Guido Goldman.
The Comet Trust holds part of the de Gunzburg/Bronfman family fortune!
In 1998, Comet Trust sold 11 E. 71st St. to Cantor Fitzgerald CEO Howard Lutnick, again for "10 dollars". The real price is estimated at $7.6 million.
The very same day as the sale, Lutnick took out a $4 million mortgage on the property.
Until 2011, the Nine East 71st Street Corp. retained ownership of its eponymous property, when it transferred the Epstein residence to Maple Inc (both companies of Jeffrey Epstein).
In 2015, Nine East 71st Street Corp. listed as its address at 301 E. 66th St., owned by Owners Corp, an affiliate of Ossa Properties, which belongs to Jeffrey’s brother Mark Epstein: http://web.archive.org/web/2019071219144...eal-estate
It shouldn´t be surprising that all of the stories on Epstein-Maxwell are so incredibly weak. I still haven´t found a single good overview story. There are some longer, practibly unreadable, stories that focus on only one aspect or on some topic that isn´t even Epstein.
There are many connections from Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell to some very powerful media moguls, like Rupert Murdoch, Peter Jennings and Mike Wallace.
At a birthday party for media mogul and convicted felon Baron Conrad Black in Chicago, Epstein, Maxwell, Henry Kissinger, Mort Zuckerman (New York Daily News publisher), Barbara Walters and Lynn Forester were present.
In 2000 or 2001, Epstein´s friend Lynn Forester (now the wife of Sir Evelyn Robert de Rothschild) organised a party for 30 people in New York for Prince Andrew's rehabilitation into Manhattan society.
The party was attended again by Barbara Walters and Mort Zuckerman.
Lynn Forester has also supported campaigns of former Congresswoman Majorie Margolies, wife of former Congressman Edward Mezvinsky, who was convicted for fraud in 2001.
In one of those strange coincidences, Chelsea Clinton married Majorie´s and Edward´s son Marc Mezvinsky (at whose wedding Ghislaine Maxwell was pictured).
Epstein's “charitable” non-profit donated $57,000 to Maxwell's TerraMar in 2013.
Larry Coben was, is on TerraMar´s board. Coben is also on board of the University of Pennsylvania with Marjorie Margolies...
Hillary Clinton received the maximum permissible campaign contributions of $2,300 from Ghislaine Maxwell for her 2008 presidential campaign: http://archive.is/qBZs8
TerraMar is listed at the Manhattan adress, where Ghislaine Maxwell lived from 2000 to 2016, that was also listed for the campaign donation to Hillary Clinton.
The townhouse was bought by a company with the same address as Jeffrey Epstein’s business office for $5 million in October 2000.
The seller was none other than Lynn Forester: https://www.businessinsider.nl/ghislaine...=true&r=US
Firestarter Wrote:Ronald Lauder is the billionaire heir to the Estee Lauder cosmetics fortune, and was another client and friend of Roy Cohn. Lauder is also the president of the World Jewish Congress.
Lauder has been close to Donald Trump since at least the early 1970s, when both attended the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. Lauder was also close to Epstein’s only known client, Leslie Wexner.
None other than Donald Trump´s long-time friend Lynn Forester de Rothschild, who was also close to Jeffrey Epstein and Clinton, is on the board of directors of the Estée Lauder that was founded and is owned by the family of MEGA member, Lubavitcher Ronald Lauder: http://archive.is/h4Rwr
For anybody that shares my view that Jeffrey Epstein was indeed murdered “suicided” it’s obvious that this was done to prevent him from exposing some of the high level crooks that were involved in his crimes and let him escape justice.
The following story confirms that Epstein was indeed exposing the Trump administration for being involved with the “sweetheart deal” that gave him a very light sentence and also made his co-conspirators evade sentence.
Jeffrey Epstein's attorney Martin Weinberg told Manhattan's federal court that among those who approved Epstein's 2008 plea deal were Sigal Mandeleker, John Roth, Alice Fisher, Mark Filip and Jeffrey Sloman.
In 2008, Mark Filip was Deputy Attorney General, now a partner at the law firm Kirkland & Ellis.
Firestarter Wrote:In 2009, now Attorney-General William Barr joined the law firm Kirkland & Ellis, the same law firm that represented Jeffrey Epstein in 2008 and fixed the “sweetheart deal” with Miami US attorney at the time Alexander Acosta (Donald’s former Secretary of Labor).
Kirkland & Ellis continued to represent Epstein until 2011, when Barr worked at the firm.
To top it all, Acosta had previously worked at Kirkland & Ellis (after being a court clerk in 1994-1995): https://heavy.com/news/2019/08/william-b...y-epstein/
Mandelker, who at the time was Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Criminal Division of the Department of Justice, was involved in discussions on the plea deal.
Sigal Mandeleker serves as Trump’s Under Secretary for the Department of the Treasury.
John Roth is the Inspector General for the Department of Homeland Security since 2014.
In 2008, Roth was chief of staff to the Deputy Attorney General.
Alice Fisher was assistant US Attorney General at the time, and now a partner of the Latham & Watkins LLP law firm.
Donald Trump interviewed Fisher for the position of FBI director after James Comey was fired.
Weinberg also mentioned Acosta's top deputy, Jeffrey Sloman.
Jeffrey Epstein was trying to defend himself with the argument that the same people that gave him the plea deal are still running the federal government, and shouldn’t be allowed to charge him again for the same crimes: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article...-over.html
The “sweetheart deal” specifically names Sarah Kellen, Adirana Ross, Lesley Groff and Nadia Marcinkova as Epstein's co-conspirators that won’t be prosecuted.

Strange Things Are Happening on Epstein Island: Drone Footage ...
Gratitude, Trump's Mar-a-Lago cronies
In April 2012, Jeffrey Epstein formed Gratitude America Ltd. in the Virgin Islands “to support the expression of gratitude for the ideals of America”.
Epstein was president of Gratitude America, Ltd. until 2015, when Richard D. Kahn took over that role.
The executors of Epstein’s Last Will, Darren Indyke and Richard Kahn, were directors for Epstein´s Gratitude America in the US Virgin Islands.
Indyke and Kahn have been sued by 3 women, 2 of which, "Katlyn Doe" and "Lisa Doe", were only 17 when they were first sexually abused by Jeffrey Epstein. Some of this sexual abuse took place, after Epstein pleaded guilty followed by the sweetheart deal and lenient prison sentence.
Lisa says she met Epstein in 2002 when she was 17, when he promised he could advance her career in dance (in return for sex).
Katlyn was forced into "sexual encounters" with Epstein and another young female at the headquarters of his Florida Science Foundation. She also alleges that in 2013 Epstein paid her $10,000 to marry an associate so he could become a legal resident of the US.
Priscilla also comes with the story that she was paid for sex for years starting when she was 20.
I don´t see much difference between Priscilla and a prostitute though...
After Epstein had served his prison sentence in a Palm Beach jail, he settled over two dozen lawsuits for coercing teenagers into sex and paid to recruit others. Three of those cases, filed by attorney Brad Edwards, settled for a total of $5.5 million: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-08-2...g-lawsuits
Since Darren K. Indyke is vice president of Gratitude America, before that he was treasurer. Indyke is a longtime lawyer for Epstein; active in all 3 of Epstein’s former foundations, Epstein Interests, C.O.U.Q. Foundation (a.k.a. Florida Science Foundation) and J. Epstein Virgin Islands Foundation (a.k.a. Enhanced Education).
Virgin Islands tax attorney Erika Kellerhals is Gratitude America's secretary and treasurer. She was also secretary, treasurer and trustee of the J. Epstein Virgin Islands Foundation.
In 2015, Gratitude America, Ltd. recorded revenues for the first time, with a mysterious $10 million donation from a New York shell company - BV70 LLC.
Epstein’s groups shuffle money to each other. In 2008, Epstein Interests donated $100,000 to the C.O.U.Q. Foundation. In 2009, Enhanced Education contributed $200,000 to C.O.U.Q.
Gratitude America Ltd. has been used to funnel money to a variety of causes.
In 2016, Gratitude America Ltd. funded a TV show with $110,000 through Verse Video Education hosted by the wife of Larry Summers, Elisa New, a Harvard economist and Treasury secretary under former President Clinton.
Gratitude America’s biggest donations included $375,000 to the International Peace Institute Inc. A New York think tank staffed by former United Nations officials and run by the Norwegian Terje Rød-Larsen. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is honorary chairman.
On July 23, 2018, Epstein, Indyke and Kahn each donated $2,700 to Congresswoman Stacey Plaskett of the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Kellerhals and partners at her law firm have been frequent donors to Plaskett.
Epstein, Indyke and Kahn also donated to Plaskett in August 2016, each for a total of $5,400.
In July 2014, both Kahn and Indyke donated $2,600 to Plaskett's campaign, while Kellerhals donated a total of $1,000 in July 2013 and January 2014.
In June 2014, Indyke donated $5,200 to New Mexico gubernatorial candidate Gary King's campaign and Kahn’s business, HBRK Associates Inc., gave King $5,200.
In the following weeks Epstein’s businesses – JEGE; FT RealEstate; Laurel; Nautilus; Maple; and Neptune LLC - donated more than $35,000 to King’s campaign.
Gary King’s father, former Gov. Bruce King, sold Epstein his 10,000-acre Zorro Ranch in Stanley, New Mexico. Bruce King was listed in Epstein’s little black book.
And now for the most interesting part...
In 2016, Gratitude America, Ltd. donated $100,000 and $50,000 in 2017 to the Bruce and Marsha Moskowitz Foundation
. While Gratitude America Ltd. registered a $100,000 donation in 2017, Moskowitz recorded a donation for only half of that ($50,000).
Bruce Moskowitz is one of Trump's Mar-a-Lago cronies that secretly influences policies in the Department of Veterans Affairs. Bruce Moskowitz is also in in Epstein’s little black book: https://www.thedailybeast.com/jeffrey-ep...e-money-to
An informal troika - Ike Perlmutter, Bruce Moskowitz and Marc Sherman – control Veterans Affairs (VA) from Mar-a-Lago (President Trump’s club in Palm Beach, Florida).
The Mar-a-Lago troika is led by Ike Perlmutter, chairman of Marvel Entertainment; a longtime acquaintance of Donald Trump and close to Donald’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.
Trump and Perlmutter regularly talk on the phone and dine together at the Mar-a-Lago.
On 28 December 2016, president-elect Donald Trump asks Perlmutter at Mar-a-Lago for help putting a government together, according to people familiar with the matter. Then Perlmutter enlisted the assistance of his friends Sherman and Moskowitz.
Bruce Moskowitz specialises in knowing the world’s top medical experts and arranging appointments for wealthy clients.
Marc Sherman is yet another a lawyer, who specialises in financial fraud, white collar investigations and damages disputes.
The troika speaks with VA officials daily to review policy and personnel decisions. In email after email, VA officials ask approval from the trio.
A former administration official said: “Everyone has to go down and kiss the ring
Everything needs to be run by them.
They view themselves as making the decisions.
Another former official commented: “On any veterans issue, the first person the president calls is Ike
The Mar-a-Lago troika has made a nice profit from their control over VA.
Starting in February 2017, Perlmutter negotiated with executives at Johnson & Johnson, on a public awareness campaign about veteran suicide.
They planned a promotional event at the New York Stock Exchange around the time of Veterans Day. Executives from Perlmutter’s company Marvel and its parent company, Disney, joined Johnson & Johnson as sponsors of the Veterans Day event.
Bruce Moskowitz wanted Apple and the VA to develop an app for veterans to find medical services, for which he selected his son, Aaron, who had built a similar app. The VA finally killed the project after months of pushing by Moskowitz.
Moskowitz set up the Biomedical Research and Education Foundation to encourage keeping track of devices for their patients. The foundation built a registry to collect data from doctors and patients. Moskowitz chaired the board, Perlmutter’s wife was also a member and Moskowitz’s son earned $60,000 a year as the executive director...
In September 2017, the Mar-a-Lago troika pushed to expand the use of the private sector.
Perlmutter wrote in an email to Shulkin and other officials:
Quote:We think that some of the VA hospitals are delivering some specialty healthcare when they shouldn’t and when referrals to private facilities or other VA centers would be a better option.
Our solution is to make use of academic medical centers and medical trade groups, both of whom have offered to send review teams to the VA hospitals to help this effort.
This looks like a proposal, so they can outsource VA health care to private providers like themselves (and their crooked gang).
Former administration officials say that VA leaders were pushed out or passed over by the Mar-a-Lago troika if they didn’t cooporate; including: the secretary, deputy secretary, chief of staff (acting under secretary for health), deputy under secretary for health, chief information officer, and the director of electronic health records modernization.
After making a good impression on the Mar-a-Lago troika, Peter O’Rourke became chief of staff for the Department of Veterans Affairs. In February 2018, Moskowitz emailed him on a new mental health initiative; O’Rourke replied: “Received, I will begin a project plan and develop a timeline for action
In May 2018, O’Rourke became acting secretary.
The Mar-a-Lago troika grew frustrated with David Shulkin, because he wasn’t listening to them.
According to 2 former officials, senior adviser Camilo Sandoval, who knew Perlmutter from his work on the campaign with Jared Kushner, presented himself as Perlmutter’s eyes and ears within the agency.
One email shows that Sandoval kept tabs on the Apple project and reported back to Moskowitz and Sherman:
Quote:I will update the tracker, and please do let me know if this helps answers questions around Apple’s efforts or if additional clarification is required.
(archived here: http://archive.is/1VJai
On 4 December 2017, White House adviser Jake Leinenkugel sent Sandoval a plan to change VA’s leadership.
Not only Shulkin — but all the officials the Leinenkugel memo singled out were removed and replaced with cronies of Perlmutter, Sherman and Moskowitz.
Like the memo suggested:
In April 2018, Sandoval became head of the Office of Information and Technology, overseeing the implementation of the Cerner contract;
In June 2018, Deputy Secretary Tom Bowman had to leave;
In July 2018, Richard Stone was made under secretary for health.
Leinenkugel himself took charge of a commission on mental health (on which Moskowitz had emailed O’Rourke): https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/...-Memo.html
In August 2018, following the ProPublica report, Veterans’ advocacy group VoteVets and Democracy Forward filed a complaint against the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, to stop the influence of 3 friends of President Donald Trump on decisions at the agency.
The lawsuit asks the court to block the Mar-A-Lago troika - Ike Perlmutter, Bruce Moskowitz and Marc Sherman - from weighing in on decisions, policies and personnel changes.
A group of Democrats led by Nancy Pelosi and Tim Walz demanded that Robert Wilkie provide unredacted copies of all documents, records and correspondence between the troika and current or former VA employees.
The VA has used the VoteVets and Democracy Forward lawsuit for an argument to not release documents.
The Trump administration defends the legality of the 3 Trump cronies manipulating the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for personal gain, asserting that the Watergate-era law FACA on advisory committees doesn't apply.
The administration argued that FACA doesn't apply to every formal or informal consultation.
The government lawyers also argued that because the Mar-A-Lago troika doesn't fit the law's definition of an advisory committee because they aren’t under the agency's control:
Quote:Far from alleging that the department managed or controlled the three individuals, the complaint asserts quite the opposite: that the three individuals asserted influence over the department.
The VA case has been assigned to Trump appointee Judge Timothy J. Kelly: https://psmag.com/social-justice/lawsuit...f-trump-va
Trump the paedophile?
I’m not completely sure that Trump is a paedophile, but he surely is connected to child sex rings!
Donald Trump himself ran a model agency, whose parties to finalise deals, included young girls and cocaine.
An fashion photographer said that Trump hosted parties at the Plaza Hotel, where young women and girls were introduced to older, richer men. The photographer said he attended Trump’s parties with one of the owners of the hair salon, Pierre Michel:
Quote:The girls were as young as 15, he says, and “over their heads, they had no idea, and they ended up in situations.
There were always dramas because the men threw money and drugs at them to keep them enticed. It’s based on power and dominating girls who can’t push back and can be discarded. There’s always someone to pick them back up. Nobody wants to call home and say ‘Help me.’
Trump would “go from room to room,” said the photographer, who added that “I was there to party myself. It was guys with younger girls, sex, a lot of sex, a lot of cocaine, top-shelf liquor” but no smoking. Trump didn’t approve of cigarettes.
Andy Lucchesi, who organized Trump’s parties, answered the question “How old were the girls for sex at the parties of Donald Trump?”, with the vague:
Quote:A lot of girls, 14, look 24. That’s as juicy as I can get. I never asked how old they were; I just partook. I did partake in activities that would be controversial, too.
(archived here: http://archive.is/I9711
In 2005, on the Howard Stern show Donald Trump boasted on why he bought the Miss Teen USA pageant:
Quote:Before a show, I’ll go backstage and everyone’s getting dressed, and everything else, and you know, no men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it. You know, I’m inspecting because I want to make sure that everything is good. You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody okay? And you see these incredible looking women.
These “women” were 15-17 year-old girls.
According to 5 girls in 1997 during the Miss Teen USA pageant walked into the dressing area where changing. The youngest of these girls was 15 at the time.
One of them called it “shocking” and “creepy” and said she quickly covered herself.
Another recalled that the contestants were “just scrambling to grab stuff… whatever garments they had”.
A third described is as “really shocking … We were all naked”.
The fourth, who was 17, thought it seemed “it was his given right … because he owned the pageant”.
Former Miss Vermont Teen USA Mariah Billado said:
Quote:I remember putting on my dress really quick because I was like, ‘Oh my god, there’s a man in here,’.
Trump said something like, ‘Don’t worry, ladies, I’ve seen it all before.’
Billado said something about what happened to the 15-year-old Ivanka Trump, who replied “Yeah. He does that...”: https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/ken...m-changing
In 2012, Donald Trump donated $20,000 to homosexual activists of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network
(GLSEN) that promoted: 1) "fisting" to middle school students; 2) books excusing homosexual paedophilia; 3) “homosexuality" to children as early as kindergarten.
“Fisting” is stuffing a fist up the “anus” for sexual reasons.
Kevin Jennings founded GLSEN in 1990. He and (other) homosexual teachers (including Jaki Williams) began indoctrinating children about the LGBT lifestyle from the age of 5.
This included teachers “casually” showing that a “mother a father” for “parents” is just as “normal” as “two dads” or “two moms”.
Jennings has stated that he was “inspired” by Harry Hay, who publicly stated that homosexual statutory rape is “precisely what 13-, 14-, and 15-year-old kids need more than anything else in the world. And they would be welcoming this, and welcoming the opportunity for young gay kids to have the kind of experience that they would need
(archived here: http://archive.is/11tpF
Trump defended this donation, by telling that it wasn’t his own choice. These donations were part of Trump's role in his reality television show, in which Trump would make a matching donation to charities of the choice of the guests on the show.
Aubrey O'Day appeared on “Celebrity Apprentice
” and was playing to benefit GLSEN: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/trumps...private-ph
At a Trump rally in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Trump bashed Clinton for having Mateen sitting at a spot in her campaign event right behind her, a couple of days before.
Trump explained (about Clinton):
Quote:When you get those seats you sort of know the campaign, so when she said, 'Well, we didn’t know,' he knew, they knew.
Wasn’t it terrible when the father of the animal that killed the wonderful people in Orlando was sitting with a big smile on his face right behind Hillary Clinton? And by the way ... a lot of the people here - how many of you people know me? A lot of you people know me.
Trump asked the people that sat behind him, at a similar spot as Mateen, to raise their hand if they know him.
A lot of people sitting behind him, confirmed they know Trump, including former Rep. Mark Foley, who raised his hand.
In 2006, Foley had to resign because he had sent sexual messages to teenage boys, who worked as congressional pages.
Trump has donated to Foley's campaigns.
Foley had also attended other Trump campaign events.
Foley said, “I've been a friend of Mr. Trump's since 1987. I've admired so much of what he's done. He's a different breed of leader and a different breed of candidate

Steven Mnuchin, Epstein, Bronfman and Blavatnik
According to the Paris prosecutor’s office, the French “investigation” into Jeffrey Epstein found 3 victims who told about sexual abuse by Epstein.
This looks aimed at Epstein’s and Trump’s associate Jean-Luc Brunel.
A 46-year-old Dutch former model has accused Brunel of drugging and raping her at his Paris appartment in 1990, when was 18.
Virginia Roberts Giuffre has accused Epstein of sexually abusing 12-year-old French triplets that he received from Brunel, who had them flown to the US, for a “birthday present”: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article...Paris.html
In 1989, brothers Jean-Luc Brunel and Arnaud founded Next Management Corporation.
None other than Donald Trump´s Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin was the New York Department of State process for Next Management Corporation. As DOS process Mnuchin filed the registration papers and received lawsuits and other official documents for Next Management.
This was shortly after Jean-Luc Brunel was accused in a “60 Minutes” documentary of drugging and raping 3 models.
Since then, Jean-Luc Brunel (of MC2) has been accused by 2 women of supplying girls to Epstein to be sexually abused. Virginia Robert Giuffre was one of these women and she also accused Brunel of sexually abusing her when she was underage.
Jean-Luc Brunel was an associate of Haddad and John Casablancas, another paedophile who was a good friend of Donald Trump.
The Brunel brothers co-founded the Next agency with Faith Kates, in which the Brunels owned a 25% stake. Two former Next models have been in a relationship with Epstein, and a third is in his little black book.
Mnuchin has been friends with Faith Kates for some 30 years. Mnuchin has helped Kates set up a business.
Jeffrey Epstein regularly dropped in on the Next agency’s New York offices, and he donated tens of thousands of dollars to charities connected to Faith Kates and her family: https://www.thedailybeast.com/steven-mnu...luc-brunel
Steven Mnuchin is a member of Skull & Bones and former Goldman Sachs partner who once ran Dune Capital, a fund financed by George Soros. Steve Mnuchin has also worked for Soros Fund Management LLC and the Soros funded SFM Capital Management.
Steven’s brother, Alan Mnuchin, is a former banker at Bear Stearns (where Epstein started his amazing ascend and financed Donald Trump for years) and Lehman Bros. Alan Mnuchin’s advisory firm, AGM Partners, in one of those strange coincidences, has represented Edgar Bronfman Jr..
Steven’s father, Robert “Bob” Mnuchin, was also a partner at Goldman Sachs (where he worked for 30 years).
Bob Mnuchin and his second wife, Adriana, are neighbours of none other than the friend of Roy Cohn, Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein - Barbara Walters: https://gawker.com/550099/bob-mnuchin
Chabad-Lubavitcher Leonard “Len” Blavatnik controls Hollywood financing company RatPac-Dune which was/is a partner of Dune Entertainment, which was led by Steven Mnuchin.
Since 2006, Dune partnered with Warner Brothers and Fox Filmed Entertainment (of Rupert Murdoch): https://www.lawfulpath.com/forum/viewtop...4978#p4978
The Jewish-Ukrainian-Russian-British-American multibillionaire “Sir” Leonard Blavatnik (long-time partner of Viktor Vekselberg) was knighted by Queen Elizabeth.
Blavatnik is also tied to Edgar Bronfman Jr.
In 2007, Len Blavatnik bought Edgar Jr’s Manhattan townhouse for $50 million.
In May, 2011, CEO Edgar Bronfman announced that the Warner Music Group had been sold to Blavatnik’s Access Industries for $3.3 billion cash, less than half the price for what it had gone public. Warner's biggest record labels are Warner Bros. records and Atlantic: https://www.lawfulpath.com/forum/viewtop...4978#p4978
While US District Judge Kenneth Marra has admitted that the 2008 “sweetheart deal” with Jeffrey Epstein violated federal law, he has ruled that the women that were let down by this illegal act have no right to any compensation from the US government.
Marra also confirmed that the criminal case against Jeffrey Epstein won’t be re-opened:
Quote:As a result of Mr. Epstein’s death, there can be no criminal prosecution against him and the court cannot consider granting this relief to the victims

Taubman and Wexner
Alfred Taubman is best known as the chairman of auction house Sotheby’s. I´ve earlier posted in this thread on Wexner and Taubman both being on the board of directors of the Hollinger publishing company.
Alfred Taubman was also in the little black book of Epstein…
Alfred Taubman was very close to Jeffrey Epstein’s only known client – MEGA group member Leslie Wexner.
Alfred Taubman´s other 2 closest friends were MEGA group member Max M. Fisher and Milton Petrie.
In 1977, Taubman got together a group of investors, Fisher, Henry Ford II, Petrie, and West Coast developer Donald Bren, to buy the 68,000-acre Irvine Ranch - south of Los Angeles - for $337.4 million (outbidding Mobil Corp.’s offer).
In 1981, Taubman joined the board of New York City's Whitney Museum of American Art, and then Wexner joined in 1984.
In 1983, Taubman got together Fisher, Petrie, Ford, and Leslie Wexner to buy Sotheby's Holdings for $139 million. Prices of paintings jumped to the astronomical after the 1986 tax act made art donations to museums deductible, taking Sotheby's from a $6 million loss in 1984 to a $113 million profit in 1989.
The company went public in 1988 at $18 a share, and after a 2-for-1 split, the shares hit a high of $37 before falling off to $23 in the fall of 1989, when the stock market made a nose dive. Even at that “low” price, Taubman had a paper profit of some $400 million, and his associates gained another more than $200 million.
In one of those strange coincidences, only days before the price tumbled in November, Wexner sold Sotheby's stock at a 1,000% profit, when his business manager (Jeffrey Epstein?) sold $1.65 million worth of Wexner's shares. In September 1989, also shortly before the collapse, the children of Max Fisher sold 600,000 shares.
Even though it looks like they were using inside information at the expense of other shareholders, this cannot be proven.
In 1990, Wexner was helping Taubman to enter Manhattan real estate: https://money.cnn.com/magazines/fortune/.../index.htm
In 2001, Taubman was convicted in the US District Court in New York of colluding with “Sir” Anthony Tennant, his counterpart at Christie’s. Taubman met Tennant 12 times in London and New York between 1993 and 1996. Taubman’s chief executive, Diana D. Brooks, the principal witness against him, testified that he directed her to meet with Christie’s chief executive, Christopher M. Davidge, to implement higher sellers’ fees and lower incentives to buyers.
This cheated buyers and sellers out of $100 million.
In 2002 Taubman was sentenced to 10 months in a low-security prison and was fined $7.5 million. In addition, Sotheby’s pleaded guilty to price fixing, paid a $45 million fine and settled a civil suit by aggrieved clients for $256 million.
Taubman reportedly paid $156 million of the civil costs, plus $30 million to settle a stockholders’ suit. In 2005, he sold his controlling interest in Sotheby’s for stock and $168 million in cash.
Taubman has claimed that he was framed by Sotheby's Diana Brooks (who served 6 months' house arrest) and Christopher Davidge after they had made plea bargain deals with prosecutors.
Tennant was also indicted, but under English law he couldn’t be extradited and never stood trial: https://www.ocregister.com/2015/04/19/de...land-deal/
According to 2 former Sotheby’s executives, Leslie Wexner profited from a highly questionable deal made by Epstein.
In 1994, Sotheby’s, where Wexner was a board director, was in negotiations to buy the site of a store in Manhattan. Since the talks were non-public, Sotheby’s directors were warned to make no transactions with their stock to avoid suggestions of insider trading. That that same year Wexner sold more than a million shares (according to Wexner, Epstein’s action).
According to the 2 Sotheby’s executives, A. Alfred Taubman was “furious with Wexner” and made Wexner leave the board the next year: https://vickyward.com/article/cnn-exclus...-mystique/
The following article, written shortly after Taubman’s death in 2015, describes how Les Wexner first met Alfred Taubman in 1970, and they became close friends later in the decade.
When Taubman was in jail, Wexner and his wife Abigail were on the shortlist of people allowed to visit, and they went once a month: https://www.forbes.com/sites/danalexande...es-wexner/
Jeffrey Epstein had been Leslie Wexner's personal investment manager and a trustee of 2 Wexner foundations.
In 1989, Wexner and Epstein bought a Manhattan mansion for $13.2 million, where Epstein lived for years. Nine years later, Wexner sold his interest in the property to Epstein for $20 million.
In December 2007, after Epstein had already been charged with paedophilia, the Wexners formed the YLK Charitable Fund, with Abigail Wexner as president. In January 2008, Epstein donated $47 million to it through his private foundation, COUQ, and his company, Financial Trust Co.
In December 2007, he also gave land in the New Albany development for $0 to the Wexners.
After Epstein was released from jail in July 2009, in December 2010 the YLK Charitable Fund was shut down and its remaining assets — about $33.3 million — were transferred to the Wexner Family Charitable Fund: http://archive.is/xcivj
After Jeffrey Epstein died in prison very suddenly, Leslie Wexner explained that Epstein had “misappropriated more than $46 million
” and that “All of that money — every dollar of it — was originally Wexner family money
” (I count more than $60 million with 2 other deals with Epstein handing money to Wexner...): https://www.cnbc.com/2019/08/07/jeffrey-...-says.html
In another one of those strange coincidences, in 1999 Seagram Company Ltd. co-chairman Charles Bronfman paid almost $18 million for a duplex penthouse.
This was one of the 11 condos developed by by Alfred Taubman after they were purchased by Republic Bank founder Edmond Safra (who was involved in Iran-Contra) in 1997 for $31 million: https://observer.com/1999/10/charles-bro...d-taubman/
This last deal involved the Athena of one Louis Dubin, whose first wife, Tiffany Rounick, was Alfred Taubman´s stepdaughter: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_Dubin
The following picture shows Donald Trump and Melania very close to Henry Kissinger. On the far left is Adolph “Alfred“ Taubman.

Boris, the pole dancer, and Epstein
This looks like a genuine scandal for Bullingdon Boy, Elizabeth’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
When Boris Johnson was Mayor of London between 2008 and 2016, he twice brought former model, pole dancer, the American Jennifer Arcuri with him to Tel Aviv (Israel). This was against regulations.
See Johnson appearing at an Innotech event with Arcuri.
Boris also regularly visited Arcuri’s flat in Shoreditch High Street, east London and met her in New York, Singapore and Malaysia: https://www.timesofisrael.com/uks-johnso...ile-mayor/
Jennifer Arcuri first met Boris Johnson in 2012. When Arcuri had to leave the UK because she couldn´t get a visa, Johnson appeared at 4 events for her company Innotech, which organises summits for technology entrepreneurs.
After Johnson had done his stuff, Arcuri easily got enough money to apply for a visa.
In October 2013, Innotech received a £10,000 grant and another £1,500 from London and Partners, which Johnson controlled as mayor.
Boris Johnson awarded money to Jennifer Arcuri's tech companies, including a £100,000 grant after she had already returned to the USA for which she wasn’t eligible because her company Hacker House wasn’t based in the UK.
In December 2014, Arcuri attended the D5 Summit of “digital governments” hosted at Buckingham Palace by Royal paedophile the Duke of York, Prince Andrew. It is unclear how she secured a ticket to the event; her Innotech Network was not among 9 British companies formally invited.
In 2016, Arcuri claimed that her Hacker House is developing “cyber badges for schools, on request of the Duke of York, to understand the awareness and ethics of cybersecurity
Jennifer Arcuri has been photographed with some other high level UK politrickster.
Arcuri has a well-known cousin, internet expert Lawrence “Larry” Lessig.
Larry Lessig has defended his friend Joichi Ito for taking donations from the pervert associate of Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein, at the M.I.T. Media Lab.
Lessig has been a trustee of the Internet Society (ISOC), where an earlier trustee was none other than Ghislaine's sister Christine Maxwell (1997-2002).
The Maxwell family has been very active in high tech companies.
Christine Maxwell was CEO and President of Chilead Inc., that provided the FBI with its counterterrorism database.
Arcuri has also invited Milo Yiannopoulos for her events, who works for Trump’s spin doctor Steve Bannon, who visited Epstein's Paris home.
Arcuri was also a friend of Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg: https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/11761...15488.html
Epstein, Douglas Leese, al-Yamamah arms sale
I’ve earlier posted in this thread on Steven Hoffenberg’s connection to Jeffrey Epstein.
Hoffenberg said about his connections to Trump “Donald’s crowd was my crowd
Hoffenberg has also claimed that it was really Jeffrey Epstein that ran the Ponzi scheme that started in 1988, when Towers began selling more than $270 million worth of promissory notes. Hoffenberg was sentenced to 18 years in prison for this fraud.
In November 1993, Hoffenberg was questioned.
Quote:Hoffenberg: Jeffrey Epstein was the person in charge of the transactions.
Kohler: Epstein was trying to manipulate the price of the stock?
Three months later, Epstein’s name had mysteriously disappeared from the case
Hoffenberg said he was introduced to Epstein by British arms dealer Sir Douglas Leese (this confirms that Epstein got wealthy from arms sales): https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world...51911.html
Douglas Leese was a major player in the biggest export deal in British history, the multi-billion pound al-Yamamah deal, which involved enormous bribes and kickback of up to 30% from the main seller British Aerospace (now BAE System, which made 43 billion pound in this arms sale). Douglas Leese used his connections with the offshore NT Butterfield bank in Bermuda to funnel bribes to Saudi Arabia.
Middlemen that were paid included Wafic Said, a business partner of the hon. Member for South Thanet, Jonathan Aitken.
Wafic Said gave his friend, son of then-PM, Lady of the Garter Margaret Thatcher, Mark Thatcher, a house and other lavish presents which has made him “mysteriously” rich.
Another part of the deal was concluded in 1988, when Saudi Arabia ordered minesweepers from Vosper Thorneycroft.
Vosper used as its agent the Saudi Fahd al-Athel, who, like Jonathan Aitken, worked for Prince Mohammed (the current Saudi King?). Vosper made huge payments to al-Athel's company, which were laundered through a front company in Saudi Arabia and were divided: 40% to Prince Mohammed, 20% to al-Athel, and 40% to unnamed others.
For the fourth part of the al-Yamamah deal, Jonathan Aitken was paid by British arms company Astra for an introduction to his business partner, Fahd al-Athel.
Thorn EMI has admitted that it paid 26% bribes on the sale of smart fuses for the bombs carried by Saudi Tornados.
Half of those bribes went to the Saudi princes and the other half went through a small arms dealer, Michael Gay, to offshore bank accounts in the Bank of NT Butterfield in Bermuda to dissapear without a trace: https://publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm...124-51.htm
Astra and Thorn EMI were also involved in arming Saddam Hussein’s Iraq: https://forums.richieallen.co.uk/showthr...p?tid=1340
Wafic Said has been a confidant of Jeffrey Epstein’s friend, Peter Mandelson, since the 1980s: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2007/jun/07/bae17
BAE ran a £60m "slush fund" for bribes to Saudi officials in return for lucrative contracts.
The investigation into the al-Yamamah deal by the British Serious Fraud Office (SFO) was abruptly closed for reasons of “national security”. The House of Lords unanimously overrruled a high court decision that the SFO shouldn’t have stopped the inquiry.
The 1986 Al-Yamamah agreement, was a unique document that wasn´t really a sales contract but a barter deal of Saudi oil for British warplanes.
Al-Yamamah has been, “the smuggling proxy for Shell and BP tankers to loot millions of oil barrels from Ras Tanura to Rotterdam
According to a BAE whistleblower, the laundered proceeds of oil sales under the Al-Yamamah agreement have been funneled by BAE, Royal Dutch Shell and BP into various international financial systems.
Proceeds of oil sales were deposited in a secret bank account in London controlled by Prince Bandar and his father Crown Prince Sultan: https://royaldutchshellplc.com/2009/09/2...ng-system/
The bribes were shared between the Defence Minister, Prince Sultan and his family, and the sons of King Fand (notably Prince Mohammed).
How did Britain secure these major arm sales in the first place?
In July of 1985, US congressional supporters of Israel
Britain blocked the sale of F-15s to Saudi Arabia. Then the Saudis had no other choice, with the permission of the US, to buy the British Panavia Tornado.
Some academics estimated that the Saudi purchase of Tornados, rather than the F-15s they preferred, cost the American economy $12 to $20 billion.
When Saudi Arabia bought Tornado aircrafts, they also gave the UK a contract for 2 air bases valued at $4 billion.
In September 1985, the Saudis and Britain agreed on a major aircraft deal as the first part of the Al-Yamamah deal.
In July 1988, the Saudis and Britain agreed on an additional deal, which included 48 Tornados, 50-60 HAWK trainers, 80 helicopters and 4 to 6 mine hunters. This deal was worth an estimated $30 to $34 billion: https://www.globalsecurity.org/military/...ornado.htm
On 16 September, U.S. District Judge Kenneth Mara not only ruled that Jeffrey Epstein’s victims were not owed any money from the government; but also that the non prosecution deal protecting Epstein’s accomplices remains intact.
This while Mara previously ruled that the deal violated the law, which made the way clear to arrest and suicide Epstein in jail: https://nypost.com/2019/09/16/non-prosec...ain-judge/
The following (deleted?) story from the Evening Standard, shows that already by 21 November 2003 there were “salacious reports” on Ghislaine Maxwell’s parties with “a dozen or so young girls”:
Quote:And when he [Jeffrey Epstein] has these dinners at one of his houses, there are all these young women that she has provided for him.' Salacious reports have crossed the Atlantic about Ghislaine hosting bizarre parties at her house to which she invites a dozen or so young girls, then brandishes a whip and teaches them how to improve their sexual techniques.
The following article offers a glimpse on the hundreds of millions of dollars mysteriously amassed by Jeffrey Epstein.
In 2004, Epstein´s firm Financial Trust peaked with a reported $563 million in assets and net income of $108 million.
In 2012, Epstein started its follow up, Southern Trust, in the Virgin Islands.
Filings show it brought in more than $200 million in the next five years. By the end of 2017, it had $391 million in assets and an annual revenue of $43 million: http://archive.is/f7rJz
I finally found more information on “Katie Johnson” (a pseudonym), whose lawsuit against Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein was dropped a couple of days before the November 2016 presidential election, and who has completelt disappeared.
Attorney Lisa Bloom announced that “Katie’s” press conference and lawsuit were suddenly dropped, because she was threatened. Reportedly both “Katie’s” car and cellphone were stolen on the same day.
In another strange twist the mother of Lisa Bloom, Gloria Allred, represents the Epstein victim that gets by far the most media attention, Virginia Roberts Giuffre...
Another attorney that represented “Katie” in late 2016, Evan Goldman, said that she couldn’t be reached because somebody “disconnected her telephone number
In February 2005, Polish national Janusz Banasiak started working for Epstein as his Palm Beach house manager.
According to his LinkedIn page, Banasiak was also the “property manager” for the Epstein associated Neptune LLC (located in the Virgin Islands).
In one of those strange coincidences in 1980, Banasiak worked for the Bronfman’s Seagram liquor company.
According to attorney Brad Edwards, Banasiak is one of several employees for which Epstein hired and paid attorneys after the federal criminal probe and civil suits filed by victims.
In August 2011, Banasiak married his second wife Rodica “Ofelia” Banasiak, who in October 2015 listed Epstein’s El Brillo Way mansion as her place of residence.
Ofelia found long-term employment working for the ex-wife of Donald, Ivana Trump until she sold her Palm Beach home in 2014.
In 2014, Ivana Trump also hired Ofelia’s daughter for a couple of month to help her move (after she had sold her Palm Beach house).
On 4 July 2019, only 2 days before Epstein’s arrest, Ofelia shared a video of the Rocky Mountains from a plane. Throughout July, Ofelia posted photos of Gunnison, Colorado, where Epstein´s friends Glenn and Eva Dubin own a ranch.
The Dubins’ longtime chef, Emily Womac, replied to Ofelia's July 21 photo at the Ouray Hot Springs, and Ofelia responded back: https://www.thedailybeast.com/the-family...nd-a-trump
One of the media outlets that regularly reports on Jeffrey Epstein, but always seems to keept the best information out of their stories, is The Daily Beast...
One of the “reputable” writers for The Daily Beast is one lady Forester de Rothschild (longtime friend of Donald Trump, Clinton and Jeffrey Epstein): https://www.inc-cap.com/participant/lady...othschild/
See The Daily Beast Editor Tina Brown, Cherie Blair, Christine Lagarde and Lynn Forester de Rothschild at the “Women In The World: Stories and Solutions” Summit, New York, 13 March 2010.
In 2008, The Daily Beast was founded by Tina Brown and media mogul Barry Diller.
Barry Diller is the chairman of IAC/Interactivecorp, who appointed Edgar M. Bronfman Jr; Jeff Bezos; and Chelsea Clinton on its board of directors.
In another one of those strange coincidences, Barry Diller and his wife Diane von Furstenberg are good friends with Josh Kushner (the brother-in-law of Ivanka Trump) and his supermodel fiancée Karlie Kloss (are they still not married?): https://www.lawfulpath.com/forum/viewtop...038&p=5440
Even more weak than the stories from The Daily Beast on Epstein are those from the CNN, where Trump crony Jeff Zucker is president: https://www.lawfulpath.com/forum/viewtop...&start=130
Jeff Zucker's wife, Caryn Stephanie Nathanson, has repeatedly been pictured with Ghislaine Maxwell. For example on 10 September 2013 or at The Fresh Air Fund Spring Gala for Mariah Carey in May 2014.
See Caryn Zucker (front right) with Ghislaine Maxwell (left) at Holly Peterson´s HIM book party, with Epstein´s and Trump´s friend Barbara Walters in the background on the right, 2 April 2014.
