A decade long injustice and American national scandal was forced back into the mainstream media spotlight this past week with the arrest of pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.
For years his procurement of dozens of underage girls for sex at his mansion and private island, with famous guests such as Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew flying on his Lolita express has been repeatedly documented by online commentators and citizen journalists.
It wasn’t a conspiracy theory, Epstein to this day is a registered sex offender. But he has not faced the full force of the law for his predatory crimes, in the state of Florida a plea deal was struck which saw him plead guilty to one charge of soliciting underage prostitution and serving a 13 month part time detention sentence. Under the deal no co-conspirators could be prosecuted.
The fact that Epstein was able to escape with such a light sentence fueled speculation online that global elites are a part of massive international pedophile and child sex rings. This is why the Pizzagate and Qanon conspiracy theories gained such a following.
The Harvey Weinstein sexual assault scandal that rocked Hollywood in 2016 exposed that despite their social justice feminist virtue signalling the entertainment industry ran a protection racket for Weinstein which allowed him to assault 80 women without consequence for years.
This week authorities in New York arrested Epstein on fresh sex trafficking charges, his plea deal only covered his crimes in the state of Florida. His arrest has now unleashed an online frenzy with many speculating that the lid could finally be blown on the global elite pedophile rings.
The mainstream media gig in trying to treat Epstein’s crimes as yesterdays news is well and truly up. With these fresh charges their strategy has switched to attempting portray Epstein as a close associate of Donald Trump, rather than Bill Clinton and other left-wing politicians and public figures.
Trump was once an associate of Epstein that cannot be denied. But Trump banned Epstein from his Mar-a-Lago golf club in 1999 when his sexual crimes first surfaced. Although Trump did say of Epstein 2002 “Terrific guy… It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it”
Meanwhile Bill Clinton flew on Epstein’s private jet the Lolita Express 26 times as revealed in 2016, many times without his secret service detail. Clinton put out a statement this week claiming he “knows nothing” of Epstein’s “terrible crimes”. Some mainstream media outlets have rewritten Clinton’s relationship with Epstein claiming he only flew on the Lolita Express 4 times.
This is not a story the mainstream media were expecting to deal with. The new sex trafficking charges in New York have arisen thanks to independent journalist Mike Cernovich launching a lawsuit to have court documents relating to civil lawsuits over Epstein’s trafficking of underage girls unsealed.
Cernovich’s court win as the catalyst for these new charges is being ignored in subsequent reporting. Cernovich’s Wikipedia for example does not mention the Epstein lawsuit at all and describes Cernovich as a promoter of fake news, conspiracy theories and smear campaigns.
One mainstream media journalist that was brave enough to go out on her own to reexamine the Epstein case was Julie Brown of the Miami Herald. She tracked down Epstein’s victims and gave them a voice to the world.
The first major scalp of the new Epstein charges has been US Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta. As Attorney for the Southern District of Florida in 2008 he oversaw the Epstein plea deal which saw him only serve 13 months home dentition.
Acosta was nominated by Trump by White House Counsel Don McGahn. He was confirmed by the Senate with all Republicans voting in favour and eight Democrats. The Epstein plea deal was not mentioned at all in the conformation hearings.
But last week Democrats, eager to tie Trump into the Epstein scandal began calling for his resignation over the plea deal. Last Friday Acosta announced he would be stepping down as Labor Secretary following this renewed scrutiny, but maintained he struck the best deal that was possible at the time.
There are likely to be many more elite scalps as the new Epstein investigation continues. Christine Pelosi, daughter of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said many high-profile people will be implicated from both sides of politics as the scandal unfolds.
Arrested on similar offences, but in an unrelated investigation was rapper R Kelly charged with 18 federal counts including child pornography, kidnapping, and forced labor. He and his entourage had recruited girls and women to engage in illegal sexual activity with the singer and attempted to cover up this activity by paying off and threatening victims and witnesses. He had previously been found not guilty of child pornography offences in 2008
Add the R Kelly charges to those of Epstein, it is clear the dam of injustice of the rich and powerful, getting away with heinous crimes against children has been broken. And it is not thanks to the mainstream media, but citizen journalists utilizing the power of the internet to ensure these crimes can’t simply be forgotten and buried. The cries for justice have been too loud
History shows that when the elites crimes are exposed, they react by offering a limited number of sacrificial lambs to the media and authorities, while at the same time trying to protect the rest as much as possible, often rewriting history to claim they had always lobbied for these crimes to be exposed.
Alexander Acosta has been the first sacrifice offered by the elites. As the investigation unfolds with renewed scrunity, many more will be offered. Though will they offer their beloved Clintons or major Hollywood celebrities?
As long as the pressure is kept up some major scalps in the latest elite pedophile sex ring scandals might finally be brought to justice.
