The alleged “suicide” of billionaireJeffrey Epsteinis just another in a long line of people declared enemies of the state that have quietly and suspiciously been silenced before they could actually speak and tell what they know. While there is plenty of reasons to doubt the official narrative coming from both government and the useful idiots in the mainstream media regarding Epstein’s “suicide,” one should consider that this is not anything new. Furthermore, it should be evidence that no one should trust the state, ever.
However, at least one commentator goes to the point of stating outright that this was a “political assassination.”
Ted Rall atThe Unz Reviewwrites, “There is no other way to say it: It was a political assassination.”
Rall recounts what we were told about Osama bin Laden:
Osama bin Laden was unarmed. SEALs captured him alive. Following brazenly illegal orders from Washington, they executed him. “The (Obama) administration had made clear to the military’s clandestine Joint Special Operations Command that it wanted bin Laden dead,” The Atlantic reported on May 4, 2011.
State-controlled media outlets like The Atlantic claimed that President Barack Obama was desperate to avoid a trial that would give the al-Qaida leader a “high-profile platform for spreading his extremist views.” Left unsaid, as so much is in the American steno-journalism reminiscent of the Soviet Union, was a more pressing reason to silence the Saudi scion.
As much as the families of 9/11 victims craved justice, it was infinitely more important to the U.S. political establishment to deny bin Laden an opportunity to publicly expound on his ties to the CIAand the CIA-funded Pakistani intelligence agency ISI, who were training and funding the “Afghan Arabs” who fought Soviet occupation forces in Afghanistan during the 1980s. Letting people learn that 9/11 would likely never have happened if not for the CIA would have been… awkward.
Such is the fate of enemies of the state.
Rall went on to recount that though Epstein was not an “enemy” so much as his “existence had become inconvenient, not exactly to the state but certainly to a cabal of powerful men, including a former president as well as the sitting one, joined bin Laden in the kingdom of the dead.”
Of course, he recounted the official story that has been put out about Epstein’s alleged death.
“First, they said Epstein had been on suicide watch, and then that he hadn’t. Prisons are full of cameras, yet there’s still no video of Epstein’s death. Then, suicide watch or not, they claimed he’d been checked on every 30 minutes. Then more like every three hours. The medical examiner said his injuries were consistent with strangulation by a second person, but then thought better of it and ruled Epstein’s convenient demise a suicide.”
Of course, Rall pointed out that hetweeted on the morning the news broke about Epstein’s “demise”: “Bill Clinton is the happiest man in America today.”
Why? Isn’t it obvious? Epstein had the goods on Clinton and his flights on Epstein’s infamous “Lolita Express” private jet at least six times
Interestingly enough, the Epstein “suicide” is the first to occur at the Manhattan Correctional Facility in over two decades.
Rall then gets to the difference between the statists and those who question the official narrative and points out the glaring tell-tale sign of foul play.
“Now we’re descending into the usual idiotic post-death debate between credulists (those who believe anything the government and its pet media says) and conspiracy theorists,” he writes. “Truth: No one knows anything. We weren’t there. The video was, but they deep-sixed that.”
“We don’t know how Epstein bit it but the fact of Epstein’s death tells us everything we need to know about America today,” he added. “No matter what, Epstein died because the government let it happen. He was a ward of the state, the highest of high-profile prisoners, a man whose trial stood to expose extreme wrongdoing at the expense of numerous horribly violated victims, yet no one in charge took steps to make certain that he appeared at every hearing healthy and alive. The carelessness of the powers that be reflects their confidence that they shall never, ever, be held accountable for anything.”
And just in the nick of time too. I mean, there is no telling what Epstein might have told the government to ensure he escaped the hangman’s noose or if he would simply have remained silent assuming that they would kill him if he talked.
Rall then reminds us that this is how things have been dealt with throughout history.
So it was with Moammar Gadhafi, the Libyan dictator who signed a deal with the U.S. to rid Libya of a nuclear program only to be blown up by one of Obama’s assassination drones lest he say too much about his relationship with the Bush administration.
So it was with Chris Dorner, the police officer who went on a shooting spree after he was fired by the LAPD, apparently in retaliation for reporting a fellow cop’s excessive force against a mentally ill suspect, before being hunted down and killed in a cabin the police set ablaze with “pyrotechnic tear gas” canisters.
So it was with Sandra Bland, the African-American woman who apparently killed herself after being beaten and jailed by the police for the crimes of failing to signal a lane change, sassiness and the likelihood she would have spoken out about being brutalized.
So it was a bunch of Nazi war criminals who escaped judgment at Nuremberg.
So it was Lee Harvey Oswald, whom the authorities couldn’t resist parading before reporters, without screening attendees like Jack Ruby for weapons.
Epstein was not the first. He won’t be the last.
As Rall comments, it’s better that such people die like this for the people in charge. I wholeheartedly agree, but I also want you to consider who is actually in charge right now.
