Jeffrey Epstein and the Dishonest Media Labeling Others “Conspiracy Theorists”

Now that Jeffrey Epstein is either dead from murder or suicide, or been taken off to escape justice or be interrogated by goons, we are getting the usual “conspiracy theorist” label by those who are either very dishonest or just plain dumb, naive or ignorant.

Especially with those in the media as well as apparatchiks, we get a good view as to who someone really is when they immediately label someone as “conspiracy theorist” when that person isn’t obediently and gullibly believing every word that “officials” and their media stenographers tell us.

Perhaps there are those who immediately call someone a “conspiracy theorist” for merely questioning the official narrative, because the alternative explanations (with facts or circumstantial evidence given) cause the labelers anguish. For example, we’d rather not hear about someone such as allegedly Epstein sexually exploiting or abusing teenage girls. But further, it is more distressing when it turns out to be an elaborate scheme that involves many, many people, well-known or not, and that a lot of innocent young girls are being abused by all those scum.

I have a feeling that some of the high-profile people who have been involved in Jeffrey Epstein’s escapades include people in the news media, as well as politicians, Wall Street cronies and other very well-known personalities not involved in finance or politics. Craig Murray analyzes whether some events in the past involving Bill Clinton and Epstein are mere coincidences.

And Caitlin Johnstone writes about the labeling of people as “conspiracy theorist,” and about an NBC reporter Ken Dilanian who warns of “conspiracy theorists” who aren’t buying the official narrative. Apparently Dilanian is also a known CIA asset. So who is the real “conspiracy theorist” here?

There are many obedient sheeple in the news media now, either just out of authoritarian devotion to their rulers in Washington, or just out of a naive and gullible simpleton mentality. Some of them will literally repeat word for word whatever government officials tell them in their “news” reports.

As I wrote in this post last December,

For example, Glenn Greenwald pointed to court historian Douglas Brinkley’s fawning interview of Barack Obama, and that “journalists joyously dance with top officials, swing on their tires, are creepily grateful when they’re sprayed in the face by their squirt guns, and play fun beach games with the very campaign officials they’re ostensibly covering.”

…some examples provided by Greenwald have included Bob Schieffer kissing up to former NSA directer Michael Hayden, and Bob Shieffer hatchet-jobbing Ron Paul on foreign policy. And Scott Pelley’s “13 uninterrupted minutes of drooling propaganda” interview of Obama defense secretary Leon Panetta, how Wired manipulated chat logs to aid and abet the government’s persecution of Army whistleblower Bradley Manning, and Diane Sawyer and Brian Ross’s anti-Iran fear-mongering (things haven’t changed much).

We have just gone through more than two years of “Trump-Russia collusions” conspiracy theory, and it was all theory because not only was there never any evidence for such collusion or Trump-Russia conspiracy, and the Mueller Report says just that, but there has been no evidence that the DNC computers or emails were actually hacked.

But the “Trump-Russia collusions” and “Russian election meddling” false narratives i.e. “fake news” propaganda were being disseminated by the news media over and over and over, so many Americans really believed it all. Now, not so much.

So we don’t really have a “news media” now, we have a government media, the propaganda wing of the U.S. government. And it’s not just the national media, but many or most local news media outlets throughout the U.S. That’s because a lot of people are just easily propagandized.

But also a lot of people in the media are too damn lazy to do actual fact-checking, actual investigative research, and instead they tend to take information that a government official gives them as the word of God.

So this “conspiracy theorist” label being thrown around and directed toward those who question the official narrative is distressing, especially, as Johnstone pointed out in her article, when our beloved yet decrepit FBI tells us that “conspiracy theorists” are the new “domestic terrorism” threat.

And that is distressing because we now live in an age false accusation, an era of ignorance and hysteria regarding many issues, including the paranoid and triggered college snowflakes, and the climate fanatics who call people “deniers” and who want to jail or kill the “deniers.” And an era of false accusation now being the norm, such as with Title IX abuse. The accusations against Brett Kavanaugh were false accusations with NO evidence to back them up. And I detest Kavanaugh, if you didn’t know, but I still think the truth is important.

And the whole “Russia collusions” matter was a false accusation against a political candidate and then sitting President.

Charles Burris posted two posts on eugenics on the LRC blog. I’m not sure if it was because of the Epstein case now in the news, because we have heard that Jeffrey Epstein was into eugenics. The Burris posts are The Eugenics Crusade and Selling Murder: The Killing Films of the Third Reich.

In the 2nd Burris post, he writes about the “documentary Selling Murder: The Killing Films of the Third Reich, the single most important film about the Nazi’s Aktion T-4 euthanasia program.” He says “It shows exactly how the Nazis marginalized people with disabilities and mental illnesses by making them less and less until it became acceptable to exterminate them.”

That reminded me of the climate fanatics calling people “deniers” and wanting to jail them or have the “deniers” killed. Have you heard that?

But, speaking of references to the “mentally ill,” we are hearing of the importance of gun-buying background checks, using FBI or otherwise government databases, of course. And people want to take guns away from those labeled “mentally ill,” because the gun-grabbers want to disarm already more vulnerable people and make them even more defenseless.

However, the problem here is how “mentally ill” will be defined, and by whom. Given that the U.S. is becoming more like a USSA, an American Soviet Union, it seems to me that civilians or “any non-government employee” who owns an illegal gun will eventually be determined to be a “danger” or a “terrorist” by the “authorities.” Or determined to be “mentally ill” by our whacked out Xanaxized society and by the gubmint in Washington. But not just gun owners, also people who don’t share the “transgender” ideology, people who support the Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence, people who live “off the grid,” etc., etc. Yeah, those “mentally ill” people.

And, oh yes, “conspiracy theorists.”

The Epstein Case: Was/Is He a Nutso?

Paul Craig Roberts asks, “Was Epstein murdered in order to protect members of the elite? Was Epstein switched out by the Deep State and a dead person of similar appearance left in his place?”

It appears that Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged child sex trafficking ring has involved many, many high-profile people such as allegedly Bill Clinton and George Mitchell, as “clients” or “johns” or whatever word you want to use.

My theory is that Epstein started very early on in his alleged scheme to ensnare high-profile people into his child sex ring, and to use blackmail involving their sexual encounters with under-age people to keep the high-profile victims trapped in the scheme. I don’t even think the money is the main reason, but that he is (or was) a sicko who gets off on doing that to bigshots. Why? Who knows. Perhaps he was motivated by envy that those people were so successful. (Was he a leftist?) Perhaps it was just a sick power trip. (He wanted to “seed” the human race with his DNA?)

So, if he was switched and taken away, it would be because many of the high-profile people either are a part of or have connections to the so-called deep state, i.e. national security state. Perhaps he was taken away to be tortured by CIA or CIA-associated thugs to get the information as to where his blackmail material is located? If the “deep state” apparatchiks have been in on Epstein’s scheme, then I would guess that they came upon it later on, not that he began as himself a part of the “deep state” to blackmail high-profile people.

So I see comments on blogs and articles out there with people saying that the national security state is taking itself down, and that’s a good thing.

Immigration and the Anti-Capitalistic Socialists on Conservative Talk Radio

I was listening to “Pat and Stu” filling in for Glenn Beck the other day, and they seemed to be glad that the Trump administration has cracked down on “illegal immigrants” by raiding places of employment. The talk radio Beck flunkies were even sounding like liberals in their show of concern for the “below-minimum wage” work the illegal people were being made to do.

I thought I was going to toss my cookies. These conservatives are pathetic. They’ll say anything and make anything up to justify their irrational anti-free market, anti-capitalistic mentality, and their anti-foreigner tribalism and collectivism.

As Jacob Hornberger and Robert Wenzel point out, the immigrants who were raided and arrested were not the “rapists and murderers” that Donald Trump was complaining about throughout the campaign in 2016. These people were arrested at their jobs, in places of employment, not the welfare office to get on the dole. They aren’t out on the streets selling drugs or engaged in sex trafficking like the now late Jeffrey Epstein allegedly. They are working and honestly providing for themselves and their families.

These immigrants are not criminals. But the people who are criminals are those government goons who are harassing them, violently seizing and detaining them and throwing them in a cage, just because the workers didn’t get the permission of the government to work where they wanted to work and attempting to make a better life for themselves and their families.

Socialism includes having to get government authorization to do what you want to do or go to where you want to go. So, like Rush Limbaugh and Howie Carr and the rest of the ignorant ditto-heads on the radio, “Pat and Stu” on the Beck show certainly qualify as socialists.

In contrast, a true capitalist believes in the free market, in which people sell their labor, goods or services to others and it’s between these traders as long as they are peaceful. They don’t get a government bureaucrat’s authorization or permission, like in the old Soviet Union, Cuba or New York City.

Neanderthal Flag Worshiper Beats Up Little Kid

As usual, Jacob Hornberger gets to the heart of the matter in his post on the 39-year-old “patriotic” American person who slammed a 13-year-old boy to the ground giving him a concussion and skull fracture, because the kid refused to take off his hat when the National Anthem, “The Star Spangled Banner,” was being played at a rodeo event in Montana.

Hornberger notes how the “patriotic” Americans (including Donald Trump, I would add) say they are against socialism yet support all the un-American socialist programs including “Social Security, Medicare, welfare, public housing, foreign aid, public schooling, the Federal Reserve, immigration controls” and so on.

I think that’s the case with most Americans, conservative and liberal, Republican and Democrat, socialist and even libertarian. Most people support those policies.

Unfortunately, many Americans support punishing someone “disrespecting” a flag or a song with brutal violence.

According to a witness at the rodeo event, the guy said the kid “was disrespecting the national anthem so he had every right to do that.” And now it turns out that the barbaric savage is blaming Trump and his rhetoric! (I am not. Making. This. Up.) According to the Washington Times, Curt “Brockway is a U.S. Army veteran who believes he was acting on an order by the commander in chief.”

So according to CBS News, Brockway was charged with assault on a minor, and “prosecutors recommended his bail be set at $100,000, but a judge ruled that he can be released on his own recognizance.”

What? Previously, according to the article, Brockway was convicted of “assault with a weapon,” after threatening to kill a family in their parked car, and sentenced to 10 years, and it was a suspended sentence.

So, the “patriotic” American had a prior record of violence or threatening violence, and got away with it. I guess this current statist judge probably agrees with Brockway’s version of “patriotism.” As long as our poor little precious flag isn’t “disrespected.” God forbid.

And how is this incident different from leftists like the useful idiots of Antifa beating up some guy because he’s wearing a “MAGA” hat?

In his article, Hornberger explains the socialist history behind the Amerikan national anthem and the “Pledge of Allegiance” (a.k.a. Pledge of Obedience). The neanderthal coward who assaulted the little kid demands obedience to a militaristic song and a flag.

There are millions and millions of Americans who literally worship a flag as a sacred religious object or image. As Wendy McElroy wrote in her article on State heretics and State infidels, “Statolatry is more than patriotism or love of country. It is a merging of those sentiments with idolatry to produce a kind of hyper-patriotism that can be called chauvinism or jingoism…This, then, is the religion of the modern American state…Anyone who rejects the worship of states altogether is an infidel.”

I guess that little kid at the rodeo “disrespected” the sacred flag of State worship and was an alleged infidel. And a neanderthal didn’t like that.

But just a final item here: Many of these same “patriotic” Amerikans who worship a flag (and the gubmint in Washington for which it stands) also say they believe in self-defense, the right to keep and bear arms, and the 2nd Amendment. Do they support the right of that 13-year-old to keep and bear arms (which kids did back in the old days of common sense), and do they support the kid’s right to use it in self-defense, such as when being attacked by a brainwashed neanderthal brute?
