no wonder he killed himself and made it look like a suicide...

It's complicated. Democratically, we are most likely to be swindled daily by the rich. They have their playground and we have ours. We may not be affected directly by Jeffrey Epstein's sexual antics, but we can be affected directly by Bill Gates' manipulations (philanthropic) of food, sex (genderisation) and pantomime pandemics.

Understanding the liquid layers of cash won't help us finding the truth...

we shall see.


Jeffrey Epstein and his fellow Jews: Not a happy story By Barry Levine


When my book on Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell was published two years ago, some of my Jewish friends praised my reporting for telling the disturbing story of this couple I termed a “predatory Bonnie and Clyde.” And those same friends couldn’t help but acknowledge that, in their view, Epstein brought shame to the Jewish community.

Comparisons were made to Bernie Madoff — and to Harvey Weinstein, a one-time Epstein pal until they had a falling out over a young woman.

When Epstein was arrested in 2019 on federal charges of sex trafficking minors in New York and Florida, only to later commit suicide behind bars at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan while awaiting trial, an Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, wrote that Leslie Wexner, the founder and then chairman of L Brands (which included Victoria’s Secret, The Limited and Abercrombie & Fitch), was a prominent philanthropist “seen as a champion of Jewish learning and ethical teaching,” and questioned how he could “end up so enmeshed and enamored with a future convicted sex offender and alleged sex trafficker.”

Versions of that question have troubled me ever since I began reporting my book and it has taken on new significance with a new documentary series on Wexner.

Versions of that question have troubled me ever since I began reporting my book and it has taken on new significance with a new documentary series on Wexner.

I was one of the journalists interviewed by the series’ director, Matt Tyrnauer, who told me for this article: “What I found in producing the series was that there was a pattern of Epstein making close associations with powerful Jewish businessmen throughout his career. And it kind of had shades of Bernie Madoff to it where there was a certain world within a world in the New York City money culture. Epstein was a con man who was able to use his Jewish identity to infiltrate and exploit. It’s clearly another example of how clever and nefariously resourceful Epstein was.”

Steven Hoffenberg learned that the hard way. He hired Epstein to work for his Towers Financial Corp. in New York in 1987. That association, he claimed, led Hoffenberg to serve a prison sentence for securities fraud and tax evasion.

“Jeffrey exploited his Judaism, very much so,” Hoffenberg told me. “In fact, he confirmed to me that he had strong Jewish roots and used those roots to help get what he wanted in making connections. Epstein was a master manipulator. He used his Jewish faith to seduce me, Wexner, Leon Black and even Ghislaine’s father Robert Maxwell, who was a huge booster of Israel.”

Epstein played on Maxwell’s sympathies that he too had lost many family members in the Holocaust and dangled his supposed connections to Israeli intelligence to line his pockets with money from Maxwell in exchange for allegedly helping the Fleet Street publisher hide assets in numerous offshore bank accounts in the 1980s.

When Maxwell died mysteriously in 1991, his daughter Ghislaine almost immediately — and just as mysteriously — ended up with Epstein in New York.

But it was Wexner, the Ohio-based billionaire known as the “Merlin of the Mall,” who hired the two-time college dropout in the mid-1980s to manage his money — and later shockingly gave him power of attorney.

Wexner was Epstein’s “Big Fish,” and similar to Hoffenberg and Maxwell, Brooklyn-born Epstein traded on his Jewishness and his support for Israel to insinuate himself in Wexner’s world, eventually stealing some $46 million from him, according to Wexner’s accounting. Epstein also wormed his way into a trustee position for the Wexner Foundation, one of the most prominent private Jewish charities in the world, for at least six years, according to The Forward, citing available tax records.







JPMorgan Chase & Co. had ties to Jeffrey Epstein that ran deeper than the bank has acknowledged and extended years beyond when it decided to close the convicted sex offender’s accounts, according to people familiar with the matter. 

Mary Erdoes, a top lieutenant to Chief Executive Jamie Dimon, made two trips to Epstein’s townhouse on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, in 2011 and 2013, when Epstein still was a client of the bank, said the people familiar with the matter. She exchanged dozens of emails with him and discussed sharing with him fees related to a charitable fund the bank was considering launching, the people said.



about taxes?....

Wilmington: The US Virgin Islands has subpoenaed Elon Musk for documents in its lawsuit accusing JPMorgan Chase & Co of helping enable sexual abuses by late sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

The subpoena, issued on April 28, came to light on Monday in a request by the Virgin Islands to serve Musk by alternative means because it had been unable to locate and serve him.

Jeffrey Epsten discovered that Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates had an affair with a Russian bridge player and paid for the woman’s education before asking for reimbursement from Gates in exchange for his silence, the Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday.

Gates met Mila Antonova around 2010, when he was in his mid-50s and she was in her 20s. Epstein met her three years later and paid for her to attend a software coding school, before emailing Gates in 2017 and asking for the cost of her tuition, the newspaper claimed, citing “people familiar with the matter.”

At the time of the email, Epstein had been trying unsuccessfully to convince Gates to invest in “a multibillion dollar charitable fund” with JPMorgan Chase, the paper continued, explaining that “the implication behind the message…was that Epstein could reveal the affair if Gates didn’t keep up an association between the two men.”

A spokeswoman for Gates confirmed the exchange, stating that “Epstein tried unsuccessfully to leverage a past relationship to threaten Mr. Gates.”



Gates’ relationship with Epstein would eventually be the undoing of his 27-year marriage to Melinda French Gates. A year after divorcing the software magnate, French Gates told CBS News in 2022 that her ex-husband’s relationship with Epstein was “one of many things” that led to the split.

Epstein and Gates first met in 2011, after Epstein had already been convicted for soliciting a child for prostitution. The pair met “many times,” according to a 2019 New York Times report, with Gates telling colleagues that he found Epstein’s lifestyle “very different and kind of intriguing, although it would not work for me.”

Gates now describes his relationship with Epstein as “a mistake,” and told CBS News that he should have taken his ex-wife’s advice and cut ties with the child molester “sooner than I did.”

The cost of Antonova’s coding classes was “immaterial for the two men,” and Gates did not pay, the Wall Street Journal’s sources said. They described Epstein’s email as a means of telling Gates that he “knew about the affair and could expose it.”

Epstein was arrested in 2019 and charged with the sex trafficking of dozens of underage girls, but was found dead in his Manhattan jail cell before he could be brought to trial. His death was ruled a suicide, although this official explanation was met with widespread skepticism, due to his close ties to wealthy and powerful figures, including former US President Bill Clinton, current CIA Director William Burns, and Britain’s Prince Andrew.
