As it was written………….
Thanks to aferrismoon for catching this one! And this scum bag has all the “right” connections!
Remember this name Jeffrey Epstein. It is the name of a man, that will go down in infamy as pedophile scum bag, who gets away with it because he has money and all the right political friends.
I’ll excerpt and encourage you to read the entire report.
Slap on the wrist!-
On Wednesday, hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein completes his one-year house arrest in Palm Beach.
During Epstein’s term of “house arrest,” he made several trips each month to his New York home and his private Caribbean island. In the earlier stage of his sentence for soliciting prostitution with a minor—13 months in the Palm Beach Stockade—he was allowed out to his office each day
Doesn’t that all sound like some hard time, for a disgusting crime?
Meanwhile, Epstein has settled more than a dozen lawsuits brought by the underage girls who were recruited to perform “massages” at his Palm Beach mansion. Seven victims reached a last-minute deal last week, days before a scheduled trial; each received well over $1 million—an amount that will hardly dent Epstein’s $2 billion net worth.
With that, the known victims of Epstein’s sexual compulsion have been officially silenced, and the case against him is closed.
The case may be officially closed and this bunch of victims may have been silenced, but….
But, this pedophile is not going to stop. Why would he? Look what he has gotten away with?
Look at what money and influence gets you…
Let’s take a look at the influential persons that Mr. Epstein surrounds himself with.
“Former President Bill Clinton; Prince Andrew; former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak; New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson; and former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers were just a few of the prominent passengers on his private jets—allow him to receive only a slap on the wrist for crimes that carry a mandatory 20-year sentence?
The scum all sticks together
Was he able, with his limitless assets and heavy-hitting lawyers—Alan Dershowitz, Gerald Lefcourt, Roy Black, Kenneth Starr, Guy Lewis, and Martin Weinberger among them—to escape equal justice?
Repeat, the scum all sticks together
Michael Reiter, the former Palm Beach police chief, certainly thinks so. He gave The Daily Beast exclusive access to the transcript of his nine-hour deposition for the victims’ civil suits, in which he explained how the case against Epstein was minimized by the State Attorney’s Office, then bargained down by the U.S. Department of Justice, all in an atmosphere of hardball legal tactics and social pressures so intense that Reiter became estranged from several colleagues. At the time, Reiter, who retired in 2009 and now runs his own security firm, objected both to Epstein’s plea agreement and to the flexible terms of his incarceration in the county jail rather than state prison. Asked during the deposition whether he thought Epstein received special treatment, he answered “yes.”
Epstein quickly got wind of the investigation, and progress on the case got messy very quickly. He hired a squad of lawyers and private investigators and dispatched influential friends to pressure the police into backing off.
The detectives asked their federal colleagues whether the fact that some victims appeared to have traveled out of state on Epstein’s planes—plus the use of interstate phone service to arrange assignations—might be violations of the federal 2000 Trafficking Victims Protection Act, which carries a minimum sentence of 20 years.
I am wondering, did he have some information on his influential friends that would get them onside? Since he was trafficking the children, moving then around on his private planes, would his friends have been his clientele? Quite possible, read on intrepid reader, read on.
Many of his high-powered acquaintances availed themselves of Epstein’s private jets, for which the pilot logs, obtained by discovery in the civil suits, sometimes showed that bold-face names were on the same flights as underage girls. A high-profile trial threatened to splash mud over all sorts of big players, just as both Gov. Richardson and Bill Clinton’s wife were running for president.
Guilt by association?
Let’s read just one lurid tale that emerged of this scum hedge fund billionaire crimes
The details that eventually emerged were often shocking and occasionally bizarre. For Epstein’s birthday one year, according to allegations in a civil suit, he was presented with three 12-year-old girls from France, who were molested then flown back to Europe the next day. These same civil complaints allege that young girls from South America, Europe, and the former Soviet republics, few of whom spoke English, were recruited for Esptein’s sexual pleasure.
Alan Dershowitz demonstrates his natural proclivity to scum defence?
Attorney Dershowitz says Epstein’s agreement to pay attorney fees for the victims and agree to civil damage claims—without admitting guilt—amounted to “extortion under threat of criminal prosecution.”
Dershowitz began sending the detective Facebook and MySpace posts to demonstrate that some of these girls were no angels. Reiter’s deposition also states that he heard from local private investigators that Dershowitz had launched background checks on both the police chief and Det. Recarey. Dershowitz denies all of that. According to Reiter, both he and Recarey also became aware that they were under surveillance for several months, without knowing who ordered it. And the Florida victims began to complain that they and family members were being followed and intimidated by private investigators who were then linked to local attorneys in Epstein’s employ.
Keep in mind this Jeffrey Epstein is a well known “philanthropist”
Epstein has been a serious and respected player in the highest reaches of politics and philanthropy. He has made substantial contributions to political candidates, served on the Council on Foreign Relations, and donated $30 million to Harvard University.
Thinking of yesterday’s post….and this shocker from today-
I am left wondering why, how these people are respected by anyone?
How is it that other people’s children are used and abused as their play things.
And, the masses are supposed to respect these people?
I scratch my head every single day at how out of whack the world is, and why the people let this continue?
One more question? Where was the main stream media on this story?
They sure as hell didn’t shout this one from the roof tops!
I am adding some additional links-

WPEC Palm Beach- Jeffrey Epstein, a free man
Interesting all this time later to see the media frenzy concerning this man and his dirty deeds- none done dirt cheap. I’ve seen nothing new or earth shattering in this latest document dump and it feels a whole lot like a distraction.
At my censored site, I’ve got multiple reports on this case from well over a decade ago- I’m not getting any new names from this latest release and don’t expect to. Whatever info Epstein had amassed is going to be used for other purposes.
