i mean... probably, right?

I'm gonna go on public record and say that I will gladly sacrifice Daddy's life and honor if it means we finally do something about the jews.
I could see that. Post-Bill the neocons had a raging hateboner for him and his entire administration, everything he ever did. I could definitely see them going for something like this. Alternatively, Epstein is rich and powerful, and the GW Bush administration was pretty corrupt.
Ohhhh yess, flawlessly perfected blackmale. He will probably be allowed/forced to fall on his sword or he will get some kind of (((plea deal))) to spare the entire network of pedo's from getting shoah'd
When watching Acosta’s desperate explanation of how he was essentially let off with less than a slap on the wrist initially was pretty surprising. He initially claimed that they were attempting to get him a plea deal to punish him quickly and prevent the case from dragging on with his powerful lawyers. The plea deal which was incredibly friendly, had a condition that Epstein would plead no contest to civil suits for restitution to the victims.
Acosta then describes how this became a problem for not just the victims but future potential appeal trials as women who would bring civil suits for restitution would create an argument and potential loophole for Epstein’s lawyers. The loophole being “they are suing because this is a money grab”. While this play probably doesn’t work for an average pedophile, it can work for a hyper connected billionaire with the best legal team who also has dirt on many other extremely powerful and influential people. Essentially, while attempting to explain the situation, he essentially admitted that even with an extremely intelligent and competent prosecution team, knowing who they were dealing with, they still gave a plea deal knowing that it was an escape hatch.
I wondered why no reporter worth a shit bothered to ask “Knowing Epstein was a billionaire with an elite team of lawyers, why would the prosecution offer an easy plea deal, KNOWING that would guarantee giving his lawyers the opportunity to expose the victims of his pedophile sex trafficking, to possible reasonable doubt in court by making them believe that they would get restitution unchallenged in a civil case? When in reality, his lawyers would counter by accusing these victims of being in it for money in a separate trial, thus potentially ruining the case against Epstein?”
It means the CIA was running the child sex trafficking blackmail like conspiracy theorists have correctly claimed for decades. It's entirely probable that Mossad and MI6 helped too. They're all very closely connected even for being departments of allied countries.
That Mossad was using him to collect blackmail material.
That's the CHUD conspiracy.
This does sound like a politician trying to blame "the deep state", to protect a bunch of rich people, including his boss.
I was thinking last night about how, apparently, no one actually knows how this guy makes money, and that he might be a money/smuggling guy for the CIA. I went looking and found some conspiracy website that claims he is a Mossad asset and linked to 9/11.
For the amount of times he would have to have pulled that off to bring in as much money as he supposedly did, the SEC would have been on him at that point. They don't go after everyone for insider trading because they don't have the money to do that, but they go after high visibility targets to scare people, like Martha Stewart or someone really big. And they have people and programs that monitor for suspicious trading activity.
IDK, the big firms pretty much do it all day every day.
There is this myth that the SEC actually does its job, but it's more of a PR tool for the federal government to pretend it actually regulates finance and banking, than a legitimate regulatory body.
They go after the people Wall st hates, the small/soft targets, or the odd celeb. If he is well connected, good chance they took a hands off approach.
I don't mean that the SEC would have necessarily prosecuted him. I mean that, the fact that he has never been investigated by the SEC or the CFTC makes me skeptical to the idea of him building his wealth through insider trading. Yes, it is very hard to prove insider trading. But the regulators at the SEC and CFTC are basically more like religious police than actual police when it comes to insider trading: they will investigate anyone because it threatens the foundational idea that the system is fair. Renaissance Technologies, the hedge fund run by huge Trump donor Robert Mercer, is under investigation right now by the CFTC over how its code works and looking for improprieties/insider trading. No, they don't prosecute a lot of people relative to how much it goes on (generally due to budget constraints), but these stories about funds/firms getting investigated leak pretty fast and regularly in the finance world. The fact that, in his 30 or so years of operating, that he has never even been investigated by the SEC or the CFTC, as far as anyone knows, makes me question just how much insider trading he is actually doing. Now maybe he is the best insider trader ever and really good at hiding it, maybe doing tons of smaller trades and intentionally booking some losers or doing it though shell companies and moving/laundering the money somehow. But I'm skeptical based on some of the other stuff I have read about him.
I think Matt/Will proposed a pretty good thesis in which he acted both as a pimp and had some kind of sleazy wealth manager.
Him being a front for an intelligence agency could make sense, but he also could be a massive creep who used connections, blackmail and child prostitution to build a wealth management business. He also could have been a front for other wealthy pedophiles.
I'm not really tied down to this theory, it just seems like he has to be involved in handling/laundering money for someone(s) with a lot of money doing shady stuff in order to potentially amass that much money. I could see him moving money for like organized crime or something. I saw someone suggest he could be doing a ponzi scheme, but he apparently only took people who were willing to commit at least $1B in assets for him to manage, so if he was ripping them off I assume he would just be dead (which would also be based on the assumption that he doesn't have any dirt/killswitch on them). He apparently has a bunch of planes, and his Island would probably be a decent way station for drug trafficking. He basically just seems to me to fit the profile of the sort of money manager that the CIA would use to launder/manage money, basically. Maybe he did just do this all between extortion, insider trading, and human trafficking, who knows.
The suspicious thing for me is lack of money trail and financial structures, but I'm more convinced they probably exist and are easily identifiable, more that they are being actively covered up by prosecutors, to protect anyone implicated.
In fact, it's the least plausible part of the whole story, that there is some kind of shadow scheme, or it was all smoke and mirrors etc.
More likely there is very obvious evidence that both the state and possibly some in the media have been warned off.
perhaps the trading tips were the payoffs. no payment to trace, and it’s so little to ask for that it can be pitched with a light touch and doesn’t trigger the “they’ll just keep asking for more and more money” thing that sometimes makes blackmail victims say fuck it and go to the cops. that’s what Grubstakers 51 seemed to imply

Who is Jeffrey Epstein?
Jeffrey Edward Epstein was born January 20, 1953 in Brooklyn, New York. After attending Lafayette High School in Brooklyn, Epstein dropped out of Manhattan’s Cooper Union in 1971. He then enrolled in New York University’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences but left without a degree.
Despite his lack of fomal education, Epstein taught calculus and physics at Dalton, an elite Manhattan private school, between 1973 and 1975.
While he was a teacher, Epstein reportedly tutored Bear Stearns chairman Ace Greenberg’s son and “ was friendly” with his daughter, and left the school in 1976 to work at Bear Stearns.
Their are conflicting reports about Epstein’s time at Bear Sterns. James “Jimmy” Cayne, then the cigar-chomping CEO of Bear Stearns, talked up Epstein’s allegedly supposed great brain and his value to the bank. However, Epstein’s deposition in a subsequent civil case explained in his own testimony that he had indeed been guilty of a “Reg D violation” while at Bear Stearns and that he’d been asked to leave the investment firm in 1981. He set up J. Epstein and Co. in 1982. His firm only accepted clients with $1 billion or more of assets and has been shrouded in secrecy since its founding. Les Wexner, the founder of the clothing brand The Limited and a high-flyer in the fashion industry, has been the only identified client of the firm.
“My belief is that Jeff maintains some sort of money-management firm, though you won’t get a straight answer from him,” one well-known investor told New York Magazine of Epstein in 2002. “He once told me he had 300 people working for him, and I’ve also heard that he manages Rockefeller money. But one never knows. It’s like looking at the Wizard of Oz — there may be less there than meets the eye.”
Regardless of his actual net worth, Epstein has amassed luxury properties across the world, including:
A $20 million, 8,500 sq ft. mansion in Palm Beach, Florida
A 26,700-square-foot hilltop mansion in New Mexico, that was once said to be the largest home in the state
The entire 70 acre island of Little St. James in the US Virgin Islands.
A seven story, 21,000-square-foot mansion in New York:
He also owns several private jets and over 40 cars. Below is a partial list of vehicles
Multiple profiles and reports from over the years detailed Epstein’s active philanthropy and social life that kept him among the ranks of New York’s elite.
Epstein is actively involved in the Santa Fe Institute, the Theoretical Biology Initiative at the Institute for Advanced Study, the Quantum Gravity Program and the University of Pennsylvania. He is a former member of the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations, the New York Academy of Science and a former Rockefeller University Board Member.
The donation showed off some of Epstein’s most elite connections, as he was publicly lauded as “brilliant” by then-Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz, who would later help represent him when Epstein was accused of sex crimes in 2007.
The donation joined the ranks of what some saw as Epstein’s carefully calculated efforts to curate an image of himself as an elite figure.
“He is this mysterious, Gatsbyesque figure,” someone familiar with Epstein told NYMag in 2002. “He likes people to think that he is very rich, and he cultivates this air of aloofness. The whole thing is weird.”
He used his money to connect with both wealthy businessmen, actors, socialites, and members of the political elite. Perhaps most notably, Epstein’s private plane took President Bill Clinton, actor Kevin Spacey, and comedian Chris Tucker to Africa to tour HIV/AIDS project sites, New York Magazine said in 2002, citing Page Six.
This was one instance of Epstein getting friendly with Clinton, as the former president would take several flights on Epstein’s private plane in 2002 and 2003, according to logs obtained by Gawker in 2015.
Epstein is a self-described “collector” of famous and powerful friends. His public association with Clinton seemed to be by design, as Epstein said in 2002 that his elite social circle was a “collection” that he invested in. “I invest in people, be it politics or science,” Epstein said. “It’s what I do.”
His political connections and social circle also included now President Donald Trump. Donald Trump described Epstein in 2002 to New York Magazine as someone who “enjoys his social life” and likes women “on the younger side.”
“I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years,” Trump told the magazine at the time. “Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”
In 2007, Vanity Fair columnist Michael Wolff told the magazine that when he had flown on Epstein’s private plane in the 1990s, Epstein “was followed onto the plane by — how shall I say this? — by three teenage girls not his daughters” who were “18, 19, 20” and “model-like.”
“He has never been secretive about the girls,” Wolff said. “At one point, when his troubles began, he was talking to me and said, ‘What can I say, I like young girls.’ I said, ‘Maybe you should say, ‘I like young women.’”

this sub needs to stfu. before 3 days ago if anyone brought up Epstein it was considered a "far right conspiracy " or some shit. dont act like you're all of a sudden worried about this. this just shows how shit this sub is and how hive minded its users are.
people have been exposing Epstein for years. you dont care dont act like you do
You cannot believe it isn't a major headline? Don't you remember it being a major headline two years ago? Don't you recall where this went the last time it popped up?
This desperate attempt to associate Trump with pedophilia seems like damage control, especially now. *Especially* now.
Damage control... and deflection.
yeah, try not to get distracted, ace.
trump & his minion, Acosta, currently hold power. Bill Clinton is a retiree. Nobody--not a fucking soul -- gives a shit about what happens with a Wikipedia entry. Your teachers mark you down for citing it as a source, ffs
