Jeffrey Epstein & Friends Wither in the Light of Day

We are living in a world of crafted illusion. This isn’t a metaphysical hypothesis. It’s a fact. None of what you are seeing, or hearing should be relied upon. What appears to be good is evil and vice versa. As if this disturbing truth is not troublesome enough, it also makes navigating one’s life more challenging than it needs to be.

The purveyors of deception have reached an all time high in their craft, thanks in no small part to the misuse of technology. From corrupt financial dealings on Wall Street to scrubbed Twitter and Facebook threads, our society (and the western world in general) has been manipulated at every turn to enrich the greedy, protect the perverse and enslave the innocent. This is reason for grave concern.

Yet, there is also reason for hope.

It’s a simple truth that darkness cannot exist in the presence of light. You may get shadows but not total darkness. That which is hidden by darkness becomes visible in the light. It may take a while to adjust to the brightness…but its just a matter of time. Ultimately, one who has been sequestered in the dark adjusts to its absence as well as what things look like in the “light of day,” so to speak.

Jeffrey Epstein and his ilk have been operating in total darkness. I’d argue they are the darkness itself. The full extent of Epstein’s “ilk” is not yet fully known. Yet, we have some indication of the people who, if not fully participating with him in his heinous underage sex milieu, none-the-less brazenly and without conscience, openly socialized with him knowing the extent of his perversion. Bill Clinton, Alec Baldwin, Ralph Fiennes, Tony Blair, Prince Andrew, Alan Dershowitz, to name but a few. The yet revealed names hardly scratches the surface.

The Prosecutor for the Southern District of New York has cracked the door. What can be seen thus far is this:

  1. Epstein quit college but at age 20 was made a math professor at an exclusive private boys’ school, Dalton, by none other than the father of our current Attorney General, William Barr.
  2. Epstein has spent a life somehow socially connected to, and in business, with some very wealthy people (Steven J. Hoffenberg, a onetime owner of The New York Post and a notorious fraudster later convicted of running a $460 million Ponzi scheme, and Leslie H. Wexner, the billionaire founder of retail chains including The Limited and the chief executive of the company that owns Victoria’s Secret) and top tier financial institutions such as Bear Stearns and Goldman Sachs.
  3. Epstein’s personal island, Little St. James Island in the Virgin Islands, was known as “Pedophile Island” and his private plane on which he transported the rich and famous as well as underage girls was named “The Lolita Express.”
  4. Epstein has enough powerful connections to avoid prosecution in Florida in 2008 and receive a paltry 13 months of work release in a plea deal before investigation of the alleged child sex crimes was completed, protected his co-conspirators and was kept secret from the Plaintiffs. The deal was approved by the then U.S. Attorney for Southern Florida, now current Secretary of Labor, Alex Acosta.
  5. Secretary Acosta recently refused to confirm or deny that Epstein is an intelligence asset working for either the U.S. or some other country.
  6. Days after Epstein’s recent arrest, a Twitter account linking him to several famous individuals was edited to remove all the names except for Donald Trump.

Epstein ran with the rich and famous. Or they ran with him. He is either an intelligence asset working on behalf of a government to control individuals by way of securing salacious knowledge about them or he is a blackmailer for no one’s profit but his own. Either way he has systematically and over a long period of time routinely sexually abused minors without so much as a peep from the powerful who knew about, and in many instances participated in, his crimes.

The surface has been scratched. This is what’s important. Its equivalent to opening a door just a crack to let that sliver of light into a darkened room. At first, the fullness of the room is barely visible. But as the door continues to open more and more of the room’s content can be seen. Eventually, fully opened, all is visible.

The Epstein case casts a large shadow. In doing so, it provides a view into how the powerful not only avoid the law, but also incestuously mingle every aspect of their lives…social, technological and financial… to accomplish that end. Those of us who do our best to live our lives in the light rejoice in the exposure now playing out in New York.

Let there continue to be light.
