If  you're following all the stories swirling around the murder of Jeffrey Epstein, you'll definitely be interested in this one. But first, a little context. Last Friday I blogged about the human trafficking problem, and came up with certain speculations. (See

In that blog, I indicated that there were several features of human trafficking networks that had to be present in order for it to work: (1) there had to be a covert means of moving people around under the eyes of authorities, such as military cargo planes or other military transports, or private planes and transports, (2) a way of "tracking" the movement of "inventory" and corresponding money flows, and (3) the willing participation of major banks in the nefarious activity via compromised or infiltrated managers in a position to handle and launder the money from such "business."

With that context in mind, consider this article, shared by V.T., to whom I am  grateful for passing it along:


Now for those of you who've been paying attention for a very long time, the name of Ari Ben-Menashe will sound very familiar, because he was one of the names that kept popping up during the Reagan years as being involved in the Iran-Contra affair:

In an interview last week with the independent outlet Narativ, Ben-Menashe, who himself was involved in Iran-Contra arms deals, told his interviewer Zev Shalev that he had been introduced to Jeffrey Epstein by Robert Maxwell in the mid-1980s while Maxwell’s and Ben-Menashe’s involvement with Iran-Contra was ongoing. Ben-Menashe did not specify the year he met Epstein.

Ben-Menashe told Shalev that “he [Maxwell] wanted us to accept him [Epstein] as part of our group …. I’m not denying that we were at the time a group that it was Nick Davies [Foreign Editor of the Maxwell-Owned Daily Mirror], it was Maxwell, it was myself and our team from Israel, we were doing what we were doing.” Past reporting by Seymour Hersh and others revealed that Maxwell, Davies and Ben-Menashe were involved in the transfer and sale of  military equipment and weapons from Israel to Iran on behalf of Israeli intelligence during this time period.

And again, if you followed all of that back in the 1980s, you'll be aware that another name keeps popping up in connection with Iran-Contra: Adnan Khashoggi. Sure enough...:

However, as MintPress reported in Part IV of the investigative series “Inside the Jeffrey Epstein Scandal: Too Big to Fail,” Epstein was involved with several arms dealers during this period of time, some of whom were directly involved in Iran-Contra arms deals between Israel and Iran. For instance, after leaving Bear Stearns in 1981, Epstein began working in the realms of shadow finance as a self-described “financial bounty hunter,” where he would both hunt down and hide money for powerful people. One of these powerful individuals was Adnan Khashoggi, a Saudi arms dealer with close ties to both Israeli and U.S. intelligence and one of the main brokers of Iran-Contra arms deals between Israel and Iran. Epstein would later forge a business relationship with a CIA front company involved in another aspect of Iran-Contra, the airline Southern Air Transport, on behalf of Leslie Wexner’s company, The Limited.

So far, according to Ben-Menashe, Epstein was involved in a lot more than human trafficking.

Now, if you recall that period of history and were following all of its strange interconnections, you'll recall that Iran-Contra was also entangled with the strange Bush-Clinton nexus and to the allegations that a covert drug-running operation was being run by certain clowns in America through the airport at Mena, Arkansas, and you'll recall that the names Adnan Khashoggi and Ari Ben-Menashe kept popping up not only in relationship to the arms-hostages-drugs circus that was Iran Contra, but also in connection to the BCCI scandal (Bank of Credit and Commerce International, or as we like to call it here, the Bank of Crooks and Criminals International).

Finally, there was one more scandal that the names Ben-Menashe and Adnan Khashoggi also kept popping up; they kept popping up in connection to the PROMIS scandal, the theft of the database management system by Reagan's Department of Justice, its alteration by at least two players adding their own "backdoors" into the software, and its sale to, or arranged theft by, other countries for use in their intelligence agencies. (For those interested, I reproduce Ben-Menashe's affidavit on PROMIS to the American House of Representatives in my book Hidden Finance, Rogue Networks, and Secret Sorcery.)   And sure enough:

Thus, there are indications that Epstein was involved with Middle Eastern arms deals, including some related to Iran-Contra, during this period. In addition, Epstein would later claim (and then subsequently deny) having worked for the CIA during this period.


If Robert Maxwell did recruit Epstein and bring him into the “family business” and the world of Israeli intelligence, as Ben-Menashe has claimed, it provides supporting evidence for information provided to MintPress by a former U.S. intelligence official, who chose to remain anonymous in light of the sensitivity of the claim.

This source, who has direct knowledge of the unauthorized use of PROMIS to support covert U.S. and Israeli intelligence projects, told MintPress that “some of the proceeds from the illicit sales of PROMIS were made available to Jeffrey Epstein for use in compromising targets of political blackmail.” As was noted in a Mintpress series on the Epstein scandal, much of Epstein’s funding also came from Ohio billionaire Leslie Wexner, who has documented ties to both organized crime and U.S. and Israeli intelligence.

After the PROMIS software was stolen from its rightful owner and developer, Inslaw Inc., through the collusion of both U.S. and Israeli officials, it was marketed mainly by two men: Earl Brian, a close aide to Ronald Reagan, later U.S. envoy to Iran and close friend of Israeli spymaster Rafi Eitan; and Robert Maxwell. Brian sold the bugged software through his company, Hadron Inc., while Maxwell sold it through an Israeli company he acquired called Degem. Before and following Maxwell’s acquisition of Degem, the company was a known front for Mossad operations and Mossad operatives in Latin America often posed as Degem employees.

With Maxwell — Epstein’s alleged recruiter and father of Epstein’s alleged madam — having been one of the main salespeople involved in selling PROMIS software on behalf of intelligence, he would have been in a key position to furnish Epstein’s nascent sexual blackmail operation with the proceeds from the sale of PROMIS.

This link between Epstein’s sexual blackmail operation and the PROMIS software scandal is notable given that the illicit use of PROMIS by U.S. and Israeli intelligence has been for blackmail purposes on U.S. public figures and politicians, as was described in a recent MintPress report.

Observe that if these allegations are true, then we have present in the Epstein affair all three essential components for his participation in a much larger network, for we have (1) a means of shuttling the "inventory" around that won't raise suspicion, namely Epstein's private planes, but also any transport that could have been supplied to him by his covert intelligence connections, and (2) a way of tracking the inventory and its money flows, and additionally, the blackmailed "clients", provided by bootlegged copies of PROMIS or possibly by backdoors added into intelligence agencies versions of that software, or by granting the necessary passwords for access to it, for the express use by that trafficking network, and (3) the  willing  participation of banks in the process, represented here by the presence of BCCI hovering on the edges of these relationships, via Adnan Khashoggi's strange connections to it.

Note, that my speculation here is somewhat different than the article's, in that I'm urging that Epstein's connection to the PROMIS scandal may be much more than merely via a contacts with those connected to it, but rather, that if one wants to run a network such as this, trading in drugs, arms, and humans themselves, then an inventory and cash-flow tracking system has to be a component. But other than that, the implied presence of those three components, plus the connections of Epstein to other famous scandals, now provides an explanation for why he had to be "suicided." It is much more than simply a decision taken to roll  up a network whose overhead has become too costly to maintain. The network itself was not only highly profitable, but given Epstein's long association with it, was also profitable from the standpoint of the sheer influence it garnered for itself. And if, as this article avers, he was a part of it going all the way back to the Reagan era, then he may have known a great deal about how so many things interconnected.

The real "Epstein black book" was in his head, and he had to be silenced.

See you on the flip side...

    This is a three hour interview.
    The first hour is free, the second hour is for members. The second hour has some interesting information.
    I believe you can pay for one session only for a couple of dollars.
    There is a special third hour bonus on this program that covers the six civilizations that have lived on this earth and how they where destroyed by the pole shift. It covers some of the correlations between the myths and replacement of the gods from age to age that can be found in books that have not gone up in flames. The original book was banded and edited in 1963. For some reason there is access to the original at this time.
    After each disaster the then current god was replace by the next god up to today’s gods.

    Hope this make since. I am no write, for sure.

    First hour

    Treasonous policies have been put in place by the DOJ, FBI, law enforcement, Fusion Centers to legally permit covert use of radiation weapons and neuroweapons in Vendetta, Surveillance, non-consensual experimentation, electronic warfare field weapons testing on citizens. Are we in the middle of a cold civil war? Do we still have a Fourth Amendment and is the United States being run by an unconstitutional secret government?

    Karen Stewart worked for the National Security Agency as a foreign language intelligence analyst from 1982 until 2010 when she was illegitimately fired two years before she could have retired, because she dared ask the IG to investigate why her work credit for a six-month series of Top Secret reports she authored leading up to the Iraqi invasion was credited to another woman, who she eventually discovered was a honeypot. The work was credited to a younger, less experienced, less educated, less competent female analyst, who had nothing to do with her reports but was sexually servicing several NSA managers. She was then given a rare double promotion intended for Stewart. To cover the sexual exploits, Stewart was ordered secretly vilified for a non-existent infraction so as to be set up to be fired after being slandered, libeled, stalked, harassed by low level Security goons as well as an apparent secret civilian army of brown shirts called Infragard who are trained and run by Fusion Centers, who serve to neutralize real patriots. When Stewart started speaking out on various alternative news venues, she discovered that many Americans, not just whistleblowers, were being targeted to bloat the Watchlist. They are written up with false dossiers submitted to the FISA Courts by a main Fusion Center, targeted, then viciously slandered, libeled, secretly declared without rights, then made prey to the predatory and bogus Homeland Security Department and affiliated FBI and Fusion Centers, who then use them for weapons testing and high tech non-consensual implant experimentations all under the pretext of being “terrorists”. She has, with many others, been trying to wake the public and our leadership to these FISA Abuse crimes by Deep State traitors.

    No authentic data person has only one copy of “files”. The notion that ‘all the evidence’ (wayko, ruby rigged, other alphabet malfeasance) was destroyed in 911 fires is, well, I have a bridge for sale if you are interested. My diabolical dreams are that the reigning “don” is in possession of various “files” about those who were using “files” on others. The most dangerous man on the planet, they say. If true, a real turning of the tables.

    Let’s face it Epstein was the low man on the pillar of power but had enough contacts to win he had to be iced prize. Though he could possibly be still alive if he a taken out a really good insurance policy the one he has enough dirt on the right people to ensure his health and safety a la Tricky Dick.

    The dots are connecting, and gangsters in one form or another are running the show. Capitalism in pure form has never existed save in our books and minds. The dots show how one can always find someone willing to do “whatever it takes” for the right price, for we are all almost hopelessly hypnotized wanting a piece of that special life only money can buy.

    There are those who say this isn’t so, that their character is above reproach, but everyone can tell stories of when money fever infected a business, family, or friend. In walking through an infected landscape almost incomprehensible, when love becomes hate, peace becomes war, freely given favors become extremely prejudiced vendettas, one is shown things about human character that is not taught in schoolrooms. The Rockefeller’s and Rothschild’s are easy targets for they represent the psychopathic nature of business in the world, but when it’s your boss, sister, mother, husband, or best friend, and truth of character becomes self evident, it is apparent that the rules, morals, and commandments, taught in church and school, do not apply when money fever is around.

    Epstein seduced with money and when that failed, he seduced with human beings and during this time, he likely thought he was patriotic to something, and had a decent image of himself. It takes much courage and vulnerability to tell the truth, because often enough, honesty can be self-incriminating. Honesty is a trait lacking in the world. Considering though, that the most brutal of all honesty, is honesty with one self, maybe it’s not surprising how the world is being run by criminals with titles …

      Strong desire is natural, that when excessive, is greed, attempting to fulfill a hole in the soul.

      I have only ONE desire, and that is revenge, and everything else is means to achieve that.

      In biblical sense, it is the holy act of God, to do bloodwrack, sworn by blood of forefathers.

      Yahweh is the god of superhuman revenge, in the biblical war and wine manual.

    ” The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax” – Attributed to Albert Einstein.

    Saw that and had to use it.
    But it does relate in this way. When you look into the intelligence agencies; look to from whence they spawned: money. Money, the system of control. A long history of families tied to power. The families needed intelligence to protect their money; their system of control.

    Epstein was an integral player in that hidden system of control. The dark side that preyed upon our nature. A nature outlawed & culturally unacceptable. Oh! and extremely profitable.

    As is the case for so much of what is going on; and so much of what has transpired; the common denominator is:
    Dead men tell no tales.

    There is a digital tale
    that can be tailed…

    More suicideds to follow…

    That started in the Victorian internet.

    None of it comes as any surprise and just illustrates yet again how rotten to the core the clowns and deceivers really are, the worst sort of criminals masquerading as government agencies.

  9. goshawks on December 12, 2019 at 6:12 am

    Joseph has connected many dots. Thanks!

    Personally, I do not believe Epstein is dead. Jim Stone has done excellent debunking of his “death.” He is sipping a cool one, somewhere – and laughing at us. (You have to scroll down a bit to find all the Epstein references.)

    The New World was a five centuries papal plan from the beginning, to create an overseas empire, to destroy Europe in two world wars.

    Nonbelievers are without mafia protection, as they do not pay tribute to the popery, and are therefore free game and cattle, outside realm of sanctity.

    Pedophile papacy is land grabber, tax collector, slave trader, drug dealer in a five centuries papal plan, where end justifies means.

    The superstructure of the great architect of the universe is a papal empire.

    • anakephalaiosis on December 12, 2019 at 6:31 am

      Epstein is agent pimp, procuring fresh meat to the royal pedophiles. He is the devil, with his tongue in your ear.

      Epstein is obviously not blackmailing the royalty, whom he is working for. So the blackmailers must be the royalty.

      Since royalties claims to rule by grace of God, they must be in league with the pedophile pope, who holds patent on afterlife.

      Runic narrative is a grandfather paradox.
