Was Jeffrey Epstein Killed? Sexual Blackmail, Israeli Mossad, and the Mega Group Connection

Earlier this week, victims of Jeffrey Epstein spoke at a court hearing in New York about their sexual abuse. Unfortunately for them, however, their long and arduous journey towards some kind of acknowledgement and justice against Epstein and the circle of elite pedophiles that he trafficked girls to was abruptly cut short when Epstein was found dead in his jail cell on August 10th. The major media is ruling it “an apparent suicide”, but it looks far too suspicious to me to rule out a “homicide”. After all, how is that the #1 criminal defendant at the New York Metropolitan Corrections Center (that houses Bernie Madoff, Paul Manafort, and even the notorious drug trafficker Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman) is allowed to simply hang himself? Did a six foot tall man really hang himself from the top bunk with a bed sheet in the kneeling position? I’m now hearing reports that one of the guards was a “substitute”. Other guards were said to be working multiple overtime shifts and took Epstein off “suicide watch” even though he was thought to be a suicide risk based on what was said as a previous attempt two weeks earlier. If Epstein was in the Special Housing Unit (SHU) #9 as reported, he would have been videotaped 24/7. Where is the video now? Which individuals at the MCC ordered him to be taken off suicide watch? These are the kinds of questions the news media needs to be demanding from officials at the MCC and the Justice Department to answer in order to get to the bottom of Jeffrey Epstein’s death, but given the pathetic and obsequious state of investigative journalism in this country…I’m not holding my breath that they will.

One independent investigator, who runs his own paid subscriber news website (Wayne Madsen Report), predicted Epstein’s death in a couple reports from back in July when Epstein was found with bruises on his neck, which authorities ascribed to either hanging or strangulation. However, as the Justice Integrity Project relates, Wayne Madsen “noted the odd presence in Epstein’s company of a muscular former New York City policeman, Nicholas Tartaglione, who reportedly said he helped rescue Epstein after a suicide attempt. Tartaglione is a former policeman in Otisville, NY, among other Hudson Valley locales. He is facing trial on charges of murdering four Columbian drug-runners in an alleged murder-for-hire killing. Madsen noted the suspicious circumstance of the former policeman possessing a cellphone in a supposedly secure prison, thereby enabling communications with the outside world. Also, Epstein purportedly complained that his injuries came from an assault.” So, if the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York is serious about solving what appears to be a probable homicide of Jeffrey Epstein, there’s one guy (Nicholas Tartaglione) that definitely needs to be interrogated and in all likelihood indicted in his killing. He, along with whoever actually ordered the hit, made sure that Jeffrey Epstein would never be allowed to go to trial where he could potentially name some of the very high-profile people, who had sex with underage girls at one of the many luxurious properties that Epstein owned in South Florida, New York, and New Mexico.

We’re already familiar with some of those names based on the testimony of victims such as Virginia Roberts Guiffre, who said she was sexually trafficked to numerous high-profile politicians, celebrities, and business moguls. She names Prince Andrew “Duke of York”, former Governor of New Mexico Bill Richardson, Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell and former Epstein attorney Alan Dershowitz among them. Naturally, they all denied the charges, but I’m sure her testimony could be corroborated by other victims should future charges be brought. Julie K. Brown of the Miami Herald, after all, was able to find some 80 girls (at the time of the sexual abuse as young as 13, 14, 15, and 16 years old) in her investigation into the Epstein’s pedophilia “Perversion of Justice” series. In fact, the one bright and notable exception to journalistic abandonment of standards, is Julie K. Brown and other journalists at the Miami Herald, who were pushing the Epstein pedophile case into the spotlight long before the mainstream latched onto the case.

If you recall, Jeffrey Epstein was able to cut a very sweetheart “plea agreement” with the US Attorney’s office back in 2008, where instead of 45 years to life he only served 13 months in a minimal security wing of a Palm Springs, Florida jail. He could even leave 12 hours of the day to conduct personal business at his mansion in Palm Springs or private island nearby. The US Attorney’s Office of Miami at that time was being run by Alex Acosta, who was later named Secretary of Labor under Donald Trump. When Epstein was finally re-arrested in New York and his luxury condo raided by the FBI, Acosta resigned from Trump’s cabinet sensing the fallout from the bad publicity he was sure to get about the dirty “plea agreement”. However, Acosta would say that he was told to “back off” of Epstein, since he was “connected to intelligence”. Unfortunately, he didn’t elaborate any further than that, but I think I can elaborate a little about just what kinds of intelligence we’re talking about here.

First, let’s look at a little background history to the Epstein case. In an Executive Intelligence Review (EIR) article published on August 31st, 2001 entitled “Israeli Spies: ‘Mega Was Not An Agent- Mega Was the Boss'”, we might have a small clue as to how Jeffrey Epstein was somehow able to go from being a math teacher at the Dalton School, to being employed as a high-level broker at the Wall Street firm Bear Stearns, to then being “the financial money manager” of billionaire Leslie Wexner, who owns L Brands, Inc. From there, as we learn in a Vanity Fair article from 2002, Epstein had the kind of imprimatur to be considered a financial genius hedge fund manager, who only took on elite money portfolios of a billion dollars or more. He threw lavish parties (no doubt with pretty young girls), had extensive real estate holdings, and ingratiated himself with some of the wealthiest and most powerful people in the world…including Donald Trump at his renown Mar-a-Lago resort, as you can see from a video that has since surfaced of the two of them back in 1992.

But, let’s get back to Leslie Wexner, who I think is one of the key individuals to understanding Jeffrey Epstein’s ties to Israeli Mossad. Turns out, in addition to being worth about $6 billion in 1990’s dollars as the owner of Limited Inc., he was also the co-founder (along with Charles Bronfman) of the “Mega Group”. According the Wall Street Journal, the Mega Group was founded in 1991 by Wexner and Bronfman, to “add greater clout to the Israeli lobby, by establishing an informal, but all-powerful policy making group, able to deploy billions of dollars in ‘charitable’ funds for the maximum effect on U.S. policy toward Israel, the Mideast, and other issues of paramount importance to the Jewish mega-billionaires. The Mega Group convenes twice a year, for two-day sessions, where, behind closed doors, the members make life-and-death decisions, affecting U.S. policy. Membership is by invitation only; the meetings are secret (the Wall Street Journal story was the only coverage to ever appear in the U.S. media about the existence of the Mega Group prior to the aforementioned EIR article); and the members each kick in $30,000 in annual dues, to cover ‘operating expenses’ for the twice-yearly sessions.” Charles Bronfman and his nephew Edgar Bronfman Jr. were the billionaire heirs to the Canadian liquor company Seagram’s that they sold to Vivendi in 2000 according to Forbes for $34 billion dollars.

Needless to say, the 20-50 Jewish billionaires that comprise the Mega Group aren’t interested in charity or peace in the Middle East for that matter. According to a dispatch from the Jewish Telegraph Agency from March 13th, 2001, the Mega Group was expected to kick in $7 million along with the Israeli Foreign Ministry’s $1 million to an Orwellian-named think tank called Emet (Hebrew for “Truth”) that they hoped would “generate long-term strategies for presenting Israel in a favorable light”. The need for attempting to portray Israel in a favorable light was thought necessary by the then newly-installed Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, who sought to launch a two-pronged propaganda offensive in the U.S. aimed at winning American support for his plans to overturn the Mideast peace process.

In retrospect, the events of 9/11 provided all the propaganda necessary to overturn the Middle East peace process for decades to come as the US launched a war first in Afghanistan in 2001 and another one against Iraq in 2003. The hawkish Neocons that made up the George W. Bush administration and the Zionist Lukudniks of the Ariel Sharon and the subsequent Benjamin Netanyahu administrations in Israel obviously had common cause as spelled out by the Neocon Project for the New American Century, thereby desiring a “Pearl Harbor like event” to justify their war-mongering blood lust. So, where does Jeffrey Epstein fit into all of this? In my view, he would have been seen by Wexner, the Mega Group, and certainly Israeli Mossad as a valuable asset based on his ability to tap extremely wealthy and powerful business clients on the one hand on the overt side and corrupt as many as he could through video sexual blackmail within his pedophilia web of hidden cameras on the covert side to be used (if need be) to coerce support for Zionist aspirations. In an excellent article by Whitney Webb that details better than any I’ve seen the role that Mossad, Mega Group, and organized crime figures have played in the Jeffrey Epstein scandal- she discusses how Epstein was given Wexner’s luxury New York townhouse tricked out with hidden cameras that was tailor made for sexual blackmail:

“[Leslie] Wexner’s ties to Jeffrey Epstein have come under scrutiny following the latter’s recent arrest, as Wexner was the only publicly acknowledged client of Epstein’s suspicious hedge fund, the source of much of this wealth, and the previous owner of Epstein’s $56 million Manhattan townhouse, which Wexner transferred to an Epstein-controlled entity for free.

Before Epstein received the townhouse, Wexner appears to have used the residence for some unconventional purposes, noted in a 1996 New York Times article on the then-Wexner-owned residence, which included a bathroom reminiscent of James Bond movies: hidden beneath a stairway, lined with lead to provide shelter from attack and supplied with closed-circuit television screens and a telephone, both concealed in a cabinet beneath the sink. The Times article does not speculate as to the purpose of this equipment, though the allusion to famous fictional super spy James Bond suggests that it may have been used to snoop on guests or conduct electronic surveillance.

The 1996 Times article also noted that, after Wexner bought the residence for $13.2 million in 1989, he spent millions more decorating and furnishing the home, including the addition of the electronic equipment in the ‘James Bond’ bathroom, only to apparently never live in it. The Times, which interviewed Epstein for the piece, quoted him as saying that ‘Les never spent more than two months there.’ Epstein told the Times, which identified Epstein as Wexner’s ‘protege and one of his financial advisers,’ that the house, by that time, already belonged to him.”

All intelligence agencies use foreign “assets” (Israelis call them sayanims), people who aren’t agents but can nonetheless provide valuable expertise and/or intelligence on something or someone. They also provide “plausible deniability” for an intelligence agency like the CIA, DIA, or NSA. So, they’re often used to cover for an agent(s) that acts as handler(s) of the asset. In Jeffrey Epstein’s case, his black book of contacts shows that he personally knew several very high-ranking Jews connected to furthering Zionist (and by extension Mossad) goals such as Ehud Olmert (12th Prime Minister of Israel 2006-2009), Mort Zuckerman (Editor and Chief of U.S. News and World Report), Evelyn de Rothschild (Heir to the Rothschild Banking Dynasty), and Ehud Barak (10th Prime Minister of Israel 1999-2001). So, for example, Ehud Barak helped to found and lead the elite Sayeret Matkal covert operations commando unit prior to serving as the head of Israeli Intelligence and Central Command during the 1980’s. He was then appointed IDF Chief of Staff in 1991 and was the Minister of Defense during the 2008-2009 assault on the Gaza Strip. At the same time Sharon came to power in Israel, Barak came to the US ostensibly as an adviser to Electronic Data Systems and as a partner with SCP Partners, which is a Mossad-related private equity company that focuses on “security related” work. Christopher Bollyn, who wrote Solving 9-11: The Deception that Changed the World, believes that these positions were merely cover for his real operation of overseeing the terror attacks of 9-11. For more on that story, I urge you to check out my Para-Political article on the Israeli Connection to 9-11 that I wrote about. Suffice to say, Ehud Barak was one of the first people on TV already promoting the “War on Terror” and naming Iraq, Iran, and North Korea as “rogue states” on BBC World Television just a few hours after the Twin Towers came down. Shortly thereafter, these same three countries were being called an “Axis of Evil” by George W. Bush. Coincidence?

Another key figure in the “Epstein Pedophile Scandal” is of course his right hand procurer of young girls, Ghislaine Maxwell. Most people don’t realize that Ghislaine Maxwell loved Jeffrey Epstein to the point where she was supplying him with upwards of five new girls every day given his insatiable appetite, according to those being trafficked as sex slaves in his circle. Previously, Ghislaine was Jeffrey’s girlfriend trying to marry him and would do anything to be close to him, even if it meant being the madam to his pedophile perversions. However, let’s not forget that her father was Robert Maxwell, who prior to his death was a long-time British asset for Mossad. In his books By Way of Deception and Other Side of Deception, former Mossad officer Colonel Victor Ostrovsky explains how Robert Maxwell was killed by an Israeli assassination team called a Kidon. As summarized in the superb book, Defrauding America: Encyclopedia of Secret Operations by the CIA, DEA, and Other Covert Agencies, by Rodney Stich:

“Maxwell had threatened to expose the Mossad’s attempts to halt the democratization of the Soviet Union. Israel and the Mossad felt that removal of the Soviet threat would lessen Israel’s strategic value to the United States, resulting in a major reduction in financial aid and military equipment. Maxwell had financially funded many prior Mossad activities, and was now in need of immediate financial help himself. Maxwell warned that if Israel did not provide this help, he would publicize Israel’s attempt to prevent the end of the Cold War. While preparing to assassinate Maxwell, the Mossad instructed Maxwell to meet them in Los Cristos on the island of Grand Canary, and to get there via his yacht. A Kidon team was then dispatched by boat, and during the evening of November 4, 1991, while Maxwell was on his boat, the Kidon team climbed on board the yacht, killing Maxwell and throwing his body into the ocean. Later, in a typical snow-job, Maxwell was buried on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, while Israel’s Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir eulogized the man that Israel Mossad had killed.”

While we don’t know the extent of Ghislaine’s knowledge of her father’s early life working with Mossad up until his assassination by them, we do know that given the history of intelligence connections within the Maxwell family…she certainly would have popped up on Mossad’s radar as someone to be used and (as with her British father perhaps) just as easily discarded when she no longer served the purpose for which she was intended. Now that Epstein is dead in an apparent homicide to silence him from spilling the beans about his “intelligence connections” and elite friends in high places, Ghislaine Maxwell is understandably trying to keep a very low profile and staying away from any media attention. As the Washington Post reported:

“It was through a 2015 defamation lawsuit filed against Maxwell by one of Epstein’s alleged victims, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, that thousands of pages of documents containing detailed accounts of Epstein’s alleged abuses became public last week. Johanna Sjoberg, a student at Palm Beach Atlantic University when she said Maxwell hired her as an assistant, said in a 2015 deposition that was released Friday said that it was Maxwell’s job to ensure that three girls a day were made available to Epstein for his sexual pleasure.”

The next phase of unraveling the Epstein sexual blackmail web will no doubt involve one or more lawsuits against Ghislaine Maxwell, since she was intimately involved with recruiting underage girls for Jeffrey Epstein and other friends of his like Bill Clinton flying high on his plane nicknamed the “Lolita Express”. Should she be arrested and locked up at MCC or any other federal corrections holding facility, I fully expect she’ll be a likely candidate to be “suicided” as well to keep her from talking in open court. Now that some 2,000 documents have been unsealed by a judge documenting many other wealthy and powerful pedophile sex offenders in Epstein’s orbit, there definitely needs to be either a House or Senate Congressional Committee investigation in order to look deeply into the Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking scandal. The stakes are indeed higher now that Epstein is dead, but the public demand is certainly still present that if a proper and thorough investigation were conducted the truth would eventually come out. The next article will focus on a brief history of sexual impropriety and misconduct among US presidents in the White House up to the present day. For now, though, stay tuned for more as this sordid story develops.
