The mystery surrounding Jeffrey Epstein’s
private island

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 7/13/2019 4:56:21 PM

From the harbor on St. Thomas, the boat skims eastward across the crystalline Caribbean, takes a turn and there it is: the palm-fringed paradise that was the private redoubt of Jeffrey Epstein. An American flag on a towering pole flutters in the breeze. A blue-and-white building that resembles a temple sits atop one of the hills. The pool and cabanas are visible in the distance. There's no traffic on the winding dirt roads, no people on the dock or the beach. (Snip) Locals have other names for it: Pedophile Island and Orgy Island.

I want the media to demand that the dems return every dime that Epstein gave to them over the past 3 decades. That includes the Clinton Foundation. I won't hold my breath...

Don't waste your time on this one, folks. It's a long article about Orgy Island - - and the word "Clinton" does not appear at all. But - - it's Bloomberg - - so what else would we expect?

Hardly a waste of time, this article is about Epstein, his business history, the island, the strange “boxes” in the house, and some of his personal proclivities re employees’ attire and behavior. When someone believes an article is a waste of time, they should preface it with “I believe that”, “In my opinion”. A qualifier. I thought this article didn’t need Bubba or bimbettes to be interesting. For those who wondered what happened to the gold dome on his “temple”, they will learn that it blew off in Hurricane Irma. How mundane...

Competent staffers would have hired young looking hookers, had them wear pigtails, fake braces, and Catholic school uniforms, and Jeffrey would have been pleasured and happy and out of jail.

The only reason for Epstein to fly a US flag on a giant pole is for mockery of the USA. I'm surprised he doesn't have a burning ceremony every day in celebration for his Demonrat Communist Party.

CTH has tracked this issue so closely through the years it often feels futile for another reminder. However, with the insufferable political games in the headlines over the issue of illegal immigrants and children, perhaps it is worth another visit. There is no greater disconnect from ordinary Americans on any singular issue than the policy positions of Democrats and Republicans in Washington DC surrounding illegal immigration. President Donald Trump is confronting their unified interests. .Massive illegal immigration is supported by both sides of the professional political machine.

In his final speech from the White House in January 1961, President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned the nation that the military had joined with the arms industry and had acquired unwarranted influence over American politics. His term for this alliance was the “military industrial complex.” Since that time, Eisenhower’s term has been co-opted by other critics of special interests pooling their resources to exercise a dangerous influence on America’s democracy; one example would be the so-called “homeless industrial complex.”This label has been around awhile, and has bipartisan origins.

In two essays, “Illness as Metaphor” in 1978 and “AIDS and Its Metaphors” in 1988, the critic Susan Sontag observed that you can learn a lot about a society from the metaphors it uses to describe disease. She also suggested that disease itself can serve as a metaphor—a reflection of the society through which it travels. In other words, the way certain illnesses spread reveals something not just about a nation’s physiological health but also about its cultural and political health. For instance, AIDS would not have ravaged America as fully as it did without institutionalized homophobia, which inclined many Americans to see the disease as retribution for gay sex.
