    Thinking

    The obvious ...
    In a nutshell ...



    How Long Is Jeffrey Epstein For This World?


    Authored by Raul Ilargi Meijer via The Automatic Earth blog,

    First of all, I dearly wish I never had to read or write about Jeffrey Epstein again. But I can’t. And going over the reports about him, and watching the videos below (I’m sure there’s a thousand more), I started thinking I don’t see how he can have much longer to live. (Note as always that if you receive this through email, the videos may not show properly. If someone can explain why, and what to do about that, I’m game. Meanwhile, please go to the TAE site.)

    There are three main threats to Jeffrey Epstein’s life (or four, if you include his victims).



    No. 1 is his fellow inmates in the Manhattan MCC. He’ll be in very strict isolation, because inmates and pedophilia is a very explosive combination. So isolation, but that’s never 100%.

    And Judge Berman yesterday ordered him in jail until his trial(s), instead of in his $77 million Manhattan mansion not far from that same prison, so he’ll be there a while; that trial could take a very long time to happen, even years. All the more chance for an inmate to make an easy $1000 by offing him.

    The no. 2 threat is Epstein himself. Berman’s decision means he’s very unlikely to ever get out again. Chances of him being declared innocent are as close to zero as as anything Kelvin. So why would he want to continue to live? Perhaps his lawyers try and tell him he’s always got a shot, and there’s always a next court date, but he doesn’t strike me as fully delusional.

    I could be wrong, sure, about much of all this, but I don’t think so.

    The no. 3 threat is, obviously, the people he might “sing” about. And that’s an litany of the world’s who’s who. No doubt the FBI may already have their IDs and photos and what-not, but why chance it when you can take down the -potential- crown witness?

    Now, if we may believe just 10% of what George Webb talks about in the last video in this article, everybody who’s anybody in government, secret services et al in the whole wide world should feel threatened right now. But those 2,000 pages from 2015 that Judge Berman ordered to be unsealed are not yet public, and you can bet your donkey that the cream of the global lawyer and secret service crop are going over them as you read this.

    Will we ever know what Epstein really did? The odds are not in favor of that. But let’s try and have a look anyway. See if we can -to an extent- make up our minds based on that.

    First up, an interview with Virginia Roberts Giuffre, one of Epstein’s main accusers. And Ghislaine Maxwell’s, don’t let’s forget that. She’s still walking around free, amazingly.

    This is a Miami Herald video linked to Julie K. Brown’s series for the Miami Herald last fall on Epstein. It was posted to YouTube by the Miami Herald on Nov 30, 2018. It took another 8 months for him to be arrested. The 2,000 pages “supposed” to be unsealed soon stem from a case Roberts Giuffre brought in 2015.

    Fast forward to the present, this is from RT on July 18, tackling the fact that Judge Berman refused to let Epstein out on bail. It’s not all the greatest stuff, but you DO get the feeling.


    Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4IhW9Z_ARGo


    This I found interesting, Fox, also from July 18, because it targets Prince Andrew. Is MI6 going to be able to muffle away the obviously very strong and long-term connection between Epstein and Andrew? I’m thinking they’d probably have to get those 2,000 pages re-sealed. Or, you know, burned down. Nuked.

    And then there’s George Webb. Now he is, I understand, someone who’s known as a conspiracy theorist, but then many people are in some circles, including myself, This video was posted on July 8 2019, 2 days after Epstein’s arrest. My thought while watching this is he may be wrong on some things, he may even be making a few points up, but when you’re that detailed on events that occurred over such a long time, you’re either on very powerful drugs or you’re not entirely wrong. Check for yourself.


    Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZlDb6vG6XM


    To summarize my thoughts on this, and the reason I started writing this, I can’t see Epstein living much longer. There are too many people who would rather see him dead, including perhaps himself. And there are very few people who want him to get into lengthy talks with prosecutors who are actually looking for the truth.

    Now of course we must wonder if any prosecutor wants that truth. Alex Acosta left his US government job because “Epstein is intelligence” was not enough to let him keep his job. And if we can believe some of the stories about the CIA, the State Dept and Mossad being linked to Epstein (and we got worse than that), it looks like he’s just got to go. Unless someone, or some party involved, has a reason to protect him against all odds. If only to handicap some other people.

    After this piece I really hope I never have to write about this topic again. My hopes of that are not overly high, but I do have to say I have a very hard time thinking about child -sex- abuse. I also think we must think much harder about why it is that we pick predators to lead our societies. Because this hardly ever fails, doesn’t it? A bunch of sexual deviants rise to the top everywhere.

    Sexual predation appears to be some inevitable part of political power. Not everywhere and not all the time, but far too much for comfort.

    Let’s hope enough of those predators are exposed through the Jeffrey Epstein case. But, you know, listening to George Webb, you think of the oil sheikhs and the girls being trafficked by Epstein and others, from the Balkans and dirt poor African countries, and you ask yourself, what are the odds of full exposure?

    Question

    A desperate search for an encounter with the soul ...



    Jasun Horsley - UFOs, Trauma, and Hacking the Human Psyche

    LegaliseFreedom1


    Jasun Horsley discusses his book 'Prisoner of Infinity - UFOs, Social Engineering, and the Psychology of Fragmentation'. 'Prisoner of Infinity' examines modern-day accounts of UFOs, alien abductions, and psychism to uncover a century-long program of psychological fragmentation, collective indoctrination, and covert cultural, social, and mythic engineering.

    Whether it is the forces of God, government, aliens from outer (or inner) space, or the incalculable effects of childhood sexual trauma on the human psyche, premature contact with these forces compels us to create 'crucial fictions'. Such semi-coherent mythic narratives make partial sense out of our experience, but in the process turn us into the unreliable narrators of our own lives.

    Taking UFOS and the work of 'experiencer' Whitley Strieber as its departure point, 'Prisoner of Infinity' explores how beliefs are created and perceptions are managed in the face of the inexplicably complex forces of our existence. While keeping the question of a non-human and/or paranormal element open, the book maps how all-too-human agendas (such as the CIA’s MK Ultra program) have co-opted the ancient psychological process of myth-making, giving rise to dissociative, dumbed-down Hollywood versions of reality. The New Age movement, UFOs, alien abductions, psychism, psychedelic mind expansion, Transhumanism, the Space Program – what if they are all productions devised by committee in dark rooms to serve social, political, and economic goals that are largely devoid of true substance or meaning?

    Through an exacting and enlivening process of social, cultural and psychological examination and excavation, 'Prisoner of Infinity' uncovers the most deeply buried treasure of all. The original, uncredited author of all mystery and meaning: the human soul.

    Food For Thought:

    I had a close friend that employed a professional for a weekend as a date for a local wedding party. She was 16 and estranged from her family. I tried talking to her and asked her how I could help her 'escape' the life's path that she was on. She responded to me, "what the f*ck is your problem" and that was the opening salvo, she became hostile after that. I was embarrassed by believing that I could be so presumptuous as to think she wasn't perfectly happy doing exactly what she was doing. You tell me! This is not a good analogy to Epstein but it is my reality at the ground floor.

    I agree, and it's most unfortunate.

    Question

    ‘Westworld’: Watch Mysterious New Season 3 Trailer

    I thought your world would be so different from mine. There’s no difference at all, is there?
    "Westworld offered a mysterious glimpse into its upcoming third season Saturday during HBO’s Comic-Con panel in San Diego.

    With Season 3 not scheduled to premiere until 2020, the latest trailer is vague on plot but offers a parade of intriguing images, including Thandie Newton’s Maeve beating up Nazis in a 1940s spinoff of Westworld and Evan Rachel Wood’s Dolores exploring a futuristic city.

    The trailer also teases the returns of characters played by Jeffrey Wright, Luke Hemsworth and Ed Harris, who could be an android this time around, while new characters played by Aaron Paul (seen previously in another perplexing preview) and Vincent Cassel are also seen briefly.

    At Comic-Con, producers were similarly tight-lipped about Season 3’s plot, but Jonathan Nolan said (via The Hollywood Reporter), “When we started, Westworld was a dystopia. Three seasons in, I think it’s the best case scenario, to be perfectly honest. The form of AI we have on the show is thoughtful. Murderous, but thoughtful. I think we’re now heading into the era of dumb artificial intelligence.” Producers also previously promised that Season 3 would be less confusing than its time-bending predecessor."

    As well as Data and Seven of Nine. Of course, the original Data was killed/destroyed in an act of self-sacrifice in "Star Trek: Nemesis", but he had uploaded his entire memory as a backup into his more primitive brother, B4. And then there was also his advanced but psychotic "evil twin" Lore, who had been disassembled after his shenanigans with a number of runaway Borg.

    It should either way be very interesting.
