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.
