A virologist and clinical computational epidemiologist has slammed the Chinese virus model created by fellow epidemiologist Dr. Neil Ferguson of Imperial College London, whose dire mathematical models of the Wuhan coronavirus’s spread formed the basis for lockdowns in the U.K. and around the world. Scientist Chris von Csefalvay labeled Ferguson’s work “somewhere between negligence and unintentional but grave scientific misconduct.”

Dr. Ferguson, whose advice to the British Prime Minister led to the lockdown in that country, recently resigned as an adviser to the U.K. government after breaking quarantine rules to meet his married lover, left-wing activist Antonia Staats.

The code used by Dr. Ferguson, called by some the “architect of lockdown,” has now come under fire from another epidemiologist, Chris von Csefalvay, who called the computational code, developed by Dr. Ferguson to simulate the global spread of Chinese virus, “somewhere between negligence and unintentional but grave scientific misconduct.”

Drag Queen Dances Suggestively For Child While Adults Clap and Cheer

This blog’s bloggers have exposed themselves to typically irrational hate attacks from the far left and the TransNazi gang for questioning why these self righteous loons think it is acceptable to expose very young children to the overtly sexual antics of drag queens. For those who do not know, a dag queen is not a transexual, i.e. someone who wishes to live as a member of the opposite biological sex to the one nature landed them with at birth.

Now we know nature does make mistakes, although nowhere near as many as trans – activists would have us believe, but drag queens are not transexuals. They are men who dess as females in an overtly sexual or festishistic way for sexual reasons, usually presenting themselves as a pastiche of prostitutes or glamour models.

With this in mind we have no hestiation in asking why parents who think it desirable to expose their infant children to the antics of drag queens are not awaiting trial on charges of child abuse. Such people are not fit to be bringing up children.

 

A video posted to Tik Tok shows a drag queen dancing suggestively in front of a girl no older than 6 as adults in the room applaud and cheer.

The clip shows the young girl seated as a drag queen crawls on her hands and knees towards her.

The drag queen then dances suggestively before approaching the girl and squatting down beside her in what some viewers said was comparable to the beginning of a lap dance.

The drag queen then shakes her backside before stroking the girl’s hair and kissing her.

Parents are seen clapping, dancing and cheering throughout the clip.

13-year-old fights school policy allowing ‘trans girls’ into girls’ changing room
February 7, 2020 (Paul Smeaton, LifeSiteNews) – A 13-year-old UK girl is taking her local council to court after it issued guidance that would allow boys who identify as “transgender girls” to access girls’ bathrooms, changing rooms, and dormitory rooms on student trips.
The guidance was issued last year as part of the Oxfordshire County Council’s “Trans Inclusion Toolkit for School 2019” project.

For years Katie Alcock had helped The Guide movemeny run Brownie and Girl Guide groups in her hometown, Lancaster. Then suddenly she was fired.

Her offence was to suggest that science is correct and fashionable virtue signalling wrong, that people born male must be welcomed by a female-only organisation and, for instance, share tents or bathrooms with adolescent girls.

Open University forced to cancel conference following threats from the transgender lobby

The Open University was forced to cancel a conference on prison reform following threats from the transgender lobby, it has emerged. Over a hundred delegates had already bought tickets for the two-day event in May, which was co-organised by the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies (CCJS). But earlier this month, attendees and speakers were notified that the conference had been called off.“The Open University faced quite significant pressure from transgender activists. They received a number of emails where some of the language was extraordinarily overheated,” a source told The Telegraph.

Alternative for Germany (AfD) party’s anti-Islamization stance wrongly blamed for shooting attack on Muslims

from Barenakedislam.com

Lars Klingbeil, general secretary of the Social Democratic Party, called for the AfD, the second most popular party in Germany – which holds hardline anti-Muslim migration views – to be placed under surveillance by the German domestic intelligence agency, after one gunman (not affiliated with AfD) killed 10 people at Hookah bars, mostly with Muslim immigrant backgrounds.

Thursday’s attack in the small western city of Hanau has deepened fears in Germany that Muslim communities are vulnerable to fascist and “Islamophobic” violence.

Tobias Rethjen, the 43-year-old killer from Hanau, posted a number of far-right conspiracy videos on YouTube, as well as publishing a lengthy manifesto on social media, in which he espoused racist and eugenicist views, Germany’s federal prosecutor said. Rathgen burst into a Hookah bar in the central area of Haumarkt, gunning down at least three people before driving to the west of the city and killing five more at another Hookah bar and a small shop nearby. He then returned to his apartment, shooting dead his 72-year-old mother and then himself.

Last week, police arrested 12 neo-Nazis across several German states, believed to have been part of a cell coordinating attacks against multiple mosques. (None of which have any connection to AfD)

Two days after the gunman killed nine people at two cafes in the German city of Hanau, the country’s Interior Minister says there is a great threat from the far-right in the country. The nine victims all had “Muslim immigrant backgrounds,” five of whom are believed to have been of Turkish origin.

Blame it on white supremacy. Blame it on the anti-Islamization Alternative for Germany (ADF) party. But don’t dare blame the anti-Muslim backlash on leaders who have facilitated the importation of millions of Muslim supremacists who hate our culture and rape our women, violent jihadists who attack German citizens, and Muslim freeloaders looking for lifelong welfare dependancy instead of work. The political elites, without thinking of the consequenses for ordinary voters, decided to make a trade off  mass Muslim immigration in exchange for the free flow of oil from the Middle East – and now we are paying the price.

The Islamic Republic Of France

Liberté, égalité, fraternité, Allahu akbar!

France’s left-wing elite are accused of cowardice for failing to support 16-year-old girl facing death threats after she insulted Islam online, the ruling class have been also accused of cowardice for failing to support a 16-year-old girl who has faced death threats after she allegedly insulted Islam online.

The girl, known as Mila, said Islam ‘is a s*** religion’ and the Koran is ‘full of hate’ in an outburst online after she repeatedly rebuffed a Muslim boys’s sexual advances. Her angry video came after her tormentor said she had ‘insulted our God Allah, the one and only’ and that it was hoped she would ‘burn in hell’.

The French teenager is now in hiding after allegedly insulting Islam online. What French media are not reporting is that the girl was herself insulted after refusing the sexual advances of a male who then revealed he was Muslim and told her she was a dirty whore who would burn in hell. French Police told a French teenager to go into hiding after she received death threats for insulting Islam.

The 16-year-old has been advised to stay away from her lycée (sixth-form college) in southeast France after calls on the internet for her to be killed, raped or attacked. Typical Muslim male behaviour we have observed.

The girl, named only as Mila, is understood to have been told by officials that she should avoid being seen in public until the controversy fades. Great police protection of a vulnerable citizen! A 16-year-old girl is threatened with death, and in Grannyfucker Macron’s France the police tell her to “go into hiding.”

Prosecutors said two separate criminal inquiries were under way, the first to track the authors of threats to kill and rape the teenager, the second to determine whether her comments amounted to the offence of hate speech.

The French authorities, under the ridiculous popinjay Emmanel Macron, are now so obsessed with kissing Muslim arse they apparently draw an absurd equivalence between murder and “hate speech.” This the background on the controversy, which has roiled France:

The girl, who is from the Isère area near Lyons was sharing a live video on Instagram on Saturday when she became embroiled in a row with another Instagram user, a young Muslim male who started making what she calls “heavy-handed propositions” online during her broadcast.

When she refused his sexual advances, he called her a dyke, a “dirty whore” and threatened her with rape. He then mentioned that he was a Muslim. She responded by saying that: “I hate religion. The Koran is . . . full of hate. There is only hate in it. Islam is a shit religion. That’s what I think.”

Regardless of whether you agree with Mila or think she overreacted to a heavy-handed sexual proposition, followed by being called a dyke and a whore, she has a right, in any free country, to say what she said without having to fear murder, rape or other felonious assault.

The Director of the French Council of Muslims, Abdallah Zekri alleged Mila had ‘reaped what she had sown’ earlier this week, but was forced into an embarrassing retraction following public outcry.

French justice minister, Nicole Belloubet, also came in for criticism after she failed to come to the teenager’s defence, and instead accused her of breaching a legal concept that does not exist, ‘freedom of conscience’.

When she was told that none exists in French Law, Ms Belloubet apologised for her words and professed they had been a ‘mistake’. We think she will find next time she has to face the voters her biggest mistake has been to side with a Muslim wannabe rapist. At the very leadt Belloubet should be confined to an institution fot the bewildered. WTF is freedom of conscience and how did Mila breach it?

Undercover With The Clerics – Iran’s Secret Sex Trade

Islam-sex-trade

Picture: Screenshot from BBC iPlayer

 

I caught a few minutes of a BBC2 documentary last night while looking for the news headlines before going to bed. It was about Iraq’s secret sex trade and what I was watching was Iraqi clerics talking about how Sharia Law justifies sex with children. One guy told how for the equivalent of £200 he arranged a “pleasure marriage” (a temporary marriage,) between a thirtyish man and a 9 year old girl.

The Holy Man also told how in these pleasure marriages the man can do anything he likes with his temporary wife but must not take her virginity (yeah, right!) because that destroys her value to her family. Anal penetration (of a child by an adult) is apparently OK.

Anyone thinking of telling me this is “just a conspiracy theory” should watch the program (on BBC iplayer via the link) before posting ridiculous comments in defence of the indefensible.
Lefties in Sweden, Germany, France and UK tell us we should welcome this culture of child abuse, but do we want to live in societies in which the local religion (and de fact law) permits parents to prostitute their children?

The documentary narrator did say that technically these “pleasure marriages” are illegal, but that was the law as imposed by Saddam Hussein’s regime and, supported by neo – liberal politicians in Europe and North America, he was removed from office to make way for Muslim clerics who say (on rec.ord in the documentary, that secular law is not important and religious law is paramount

Paedo Epstein’s Lawyers Tell Court He Died After Assault

Let’s be realistic, when news broke that convicted paedophile and serial sex offender Jeffrey Epstain had been found dead in his prison cell having committed suicide while awaiting trial on further charges of having sex with and procuring for sex girls and boys under the legal age of consent, and trafficking under age people around the world for the purpose of prostitution, we all thought the “suicide” bit was FAKE NEWS.

When you consider that among Epstein’s known associates who had travelled on his “Lolita Express,” the private jet that ferried the rich and famous to Epstein’s private island in The Caribbean for “house parties,” included former U.S. President Bill Clinton, the second son of Queen Elizabeth of England, Prince Andrew, top civil rights lawyer Alan Dershowitz, former U.S. Treasury Secretary Larry Summers, actor Kevin Spacey and a host of wealthy and prominent figures from politics, business, law, entertainment and media, there were a lot of people who stood to lose both money and resputation if their names came out in a court case involving sexual misdemeanours. Now do you still believe the official narrative about Epstein hanging himself in prison?

Apparently Epstein’s defense team, the lawyers who would have tried to argue his case don’t buy the suicide narrative either. Reports are circulating that one of the lead lawyers voiced deep skepticism that Epstein hanged himself, while addressing a final hearing in a Manhattan US District Court on Tuesday, which was held to formally dismiss the charges as is typical in U.S. law when the accused is deceased, but also to still allow the testimony of crime victims to be heard in public.

Defense lawyer Reid Weingarten told Judge Richard Berman during the hearing that Epstein’s injuries were “far more consistent with assault” than suicide, especially the broken bones in his neck discovered during the autopsy after he was found dead in his jail cell on Aug. 10. It was previously revealed that Epstein’s defense attorneys had successfully lobbied for him to be taken off suicide watch on July 29, about a week before he was found dead in his cell, according to ABC News.

“Weingarten cited the defense’s own medical sources. Broken bones were found in Epstein’s neck during an autopsy after he died Aug. 10,” reports CNBC. “Such fractures are more common in cases of strangulation than in hanging.”

Weingarten told the court that Epstein didn’t appear suicidal during discussions with his lawyers and interactions the evening before his apparent early morning hours death. “We did not see a despairing, despondent, suicidal person,” the lawyer said.

Tuesday’s hearing was held to allow about 20 female witnesses, many choosing to remain anonymous, to tell the court and the world what happened to them at the hands of the wealthy sex predator and human trafficker.

Judge Berman wrote of the hearing, “The Court believes that where, as here, a defendant has died before any judgment has been entered against him, the public may still have an informational interest in the process by which the prosecutor seeks dismissal of an indictment.”

It would also appear, to Boggart Blog and The Daily Stirrer contributors that material seized from Epstein’s properties while he was held on remand contains, if reports are accurate, sufficient evidence to open investigations leading to the prosecution of several high profile Epstein associates. Ironically, this week’s District Court hearing marked the close of the federal criminal case and provide an excuse the sweep the whole sordid affair under the carpet, given Epstein’s “conveniently-timed” death.

Pepper Spray Sales In Sweden Have “Exploded” After Spate Of Rape Attacks

 

Translated as literally as possible (with help from DeepL translator from a report in Swedish newspaper Expressen. No translation software is perfect and though my Swedish is rusty I get the sense of what is written and can improve the application’s clunky grammar. You may notice that the Expressen report is rather coy about the ethiic and religious background of the perpetrators in most of these attacks, that is because the paper would face legal sanctions in Sweden for reporting the facts. I am not so coy but chose not to interfere with the original content beyond making it read well — Ian Thorpe.

Following the summer’s attention-grabbing spate of rapes and sexual assaults, the sales of pepper spray for self defence have increased dramatically. The Kjell & Company retail chain believes that it will sell 90 percent more sprays in August than in June. One of the manufacturers, Plegium, has announced that sales this summer have “exploded”.

Sweden has been shaken this summer by a series of violent rapes. The most notable of these have taken place in the University city of Uppsala, where two completed rapes and two attempted rapes took place between 3 and 7 August. After the incidents, police called on the city’s women to avoid parks and alleys.

The sexual offences have provoked reaction from political reactions from political figures, most notably Christian Democrats Party (KD) leader Ebba Busch Thor, who herself is from Uppsala. “As insecurity grows, it is nothing but a welfare failure,” the KD leader wrote on Instagram.

Between March and July 2019, a suspected serial rapist attacked women in Rågsved in Stockholm. Two of the assaults ended with complete rape — and the events created terror among women in the area.

Other examples of the summer’s rape epidemic are the case of a teenage boy in Fagersta who was raped and detained by several masked men in June, the woman in central Stockholm who was raped outside her house in August, the assault on a 20-year-old woman in a park in Hällefors the same month, and so on.

Uppsala student Carolina Tuula, 23, bought a spray after the notable rape case in the city earlier in August. When asked did she feel safer with the spray she replied:

“Both yes and no, you never know. It can be difficult to get it fast enough, but you can’t go around worrying all the time. I wouldn’t say that I feel so much safer, but it does feel a little better to have a tool anyway.”

Carolina says she will soon be returning to Uppsala. The unrest in the student city has made her feel more afraid than at home in Gothenburg.

“I bought a spray for my girlfriend, because she will also move to Uppsala.

“- I wouldn’t say that I feel so much safer, but it feels a little better to have a defence weapon, anyway,” she says.

Carolina Tuula is not alone in worrying about assaults. Several retailers and manufacturers of self-defense spray tell Expressen that they have noted an explosive increase in sales.

The Bodyguard website reports that in July, it saw a 21 percent increase in sales compared to the previous year — despite the fact that more retailers are stocking self defence equipment since the market has grown.

Magnus Larsson is the chief forensic scientist in the chemistry and technology section of the National Forensic Center, which is branch of the police. He says that there is a risk people will buy an illegal spray — especially if the product is purchased abroad where the legislation may look different.

Examples of sprays that are illegal in Sweden are pepper spray and tear gas, but people should be aware that certain specific substances tht may be found in sprays are illegal in Sweden. Isopropyl alcohol and menthol are common ingredients. Then there are also colored sprays, whose purpose is to label the attacker. There are also smelly variants, says Magnus Larsson at the National Forensic Center.

According to Magnus Larsson, all of these eight substances have a tear-like effect.

Epstein: Screaming Was Heard From Financier’s Prison Cell Before He Was Found Dead

We return to the mysterious death of billionaire financier and alleged procurer and pimp of underage girls to the rich and famous, a story which because it is likely to reveal the involvement of senior politicians on both sides of the US political system, movie and television actors, rock stars, prominent lawyers and businesspeople and a host of celebrities who are famous for reasons we’re not quite sure of, is likely to run for the rest of this year at least and probably for several years in the future.

After the wave of outrage that swept the USA when news of Epstein’s death by suicide broke, and the tsunami od conspiracy theories that followed, amid reports of missing CCTV recordings and administrative cock ups, more disturbing stories are emerging which suggest Epstein himself may not have been responsible for his suicide.

‘Shrieking’ Heard From Epstein’s Jail Cell The Morning He Died

The morning of Jeffrey Epstein’s death, “shouting and shrieking” could be heard from his jail cell, according to CBS News – while guards attempting to revive him were saying “breathe, Epstein, breathe.

 

Epstein, who was reportedly in ‘good spirits’ recently – meeting with his lawyers for up to 12 hours a day to discuss his case – was found hanging in his Lower Manhattan jail cell with a bedsheet around his neck, which was reportedly secured to the top of a bunk bed, according to the New York Post.

On Monday, Attorney General William Barr said that the Epstein case “was personally important to him,” and that the prison had “serious irregularities.”

Notably, the staff at MCC reportedly violated prison protocol by failing to check on the high-profile inmate every 30 minutes, according to the Washington Post. Epstein, whose defense attorneys successfully lobbied for him to be taken off suicide watch about a week before he was found dead, was also supposed to have had a cellmate.

…he also should have had a cellmate, according to the person familiar with the matter and union officials representing facility employees.

But a person who had been assigned to share a cell with Epstein was transferred on Friday, and — for reasons that investigators are still exploring — he did not receive a new cellmate. –Washington Post

In a rare show of bipartisanship, the House Judiciary Committee has sent a letter to the acting director of the Bureau of Prisons, Hugh Hurwitz, demanding answers …

You Don’t Have To Be A Conspiracy Theorist For The ‘Suicide’ Of Jeffrey Epstein To Stretch Your Credulity

You Don’t Have To Be A Conspiracy Theorist To Find The Death Of Paedo Jeffrey Epstein Too Convenient

We contributors to this site often get called conspiracy theorists, when in fact we are not posting conspiracy theories by merely questioning the narratives promoted by western governments and mainstream media when those narratives simply do not make sense. The most recent example has been the sago of billionaire Jeffrey Epstein’s rearrest on charges relating to allegations of sex with minors, solicitimg minors for prostitution, trafficking minors for sex purposes and being a general arsehole.
Epstein has never been clear of such allegations since his first arrest in 2008, when in a complete travesty of justice he served a short sentence in a Florida USA jail for sex with a minor to escape far more serious federal charges. Many people have been concerned about the plea bargain that kept Epstein out of a very long stretch in a US Federal prison and saw an FBI investigation into his wider activities as a procurer and pimp to the rich and famous of under age girls. Hiss associates included Hollywood A listers, music industry and showbusiness stars, prominent business people and lawyers, politicians and at least one former US President and his (allegedly lesbian) wife.
The Epstein scandal re – emerged in 2016, when his name and his infamous parties on a private island in the Caribbean  and flights on the ‘Lolita Express’, the private jet used to fly his guests to and from the venue, came up in connection with a presidential candidate whose name was NOT Trump. The scandal has simmered on the back burner since then, overshadowed by the crazy and now completely discredited story of Trump’s collaboration with the Russian state to steal the election from Hillary Clinton and other efforts to remove him from office based on entirely unsubstantiated allegations and in some cases people simply deciding he should not be president because they don’t like him.
The death of the disgraced financier, pedophile and alleged blackmailer, who has been imprisoned and on suicide watch since his arrrest in June this year  came just a day after a batch of  court documents were unsealed, leading to speculation he may have been “suicided” to stop his case from going to trial.

Discussione with other bloggers of the Jeffrey Epstein have usually centred not on b”Is he innocent or guilty but  “When will he be found dead in his cell?” Nobody was willing to bet the case would ever get to court, there were too many names in Epstein’s Little Black Book who simply could not afford to be publicly associated with his activities.

And it wasn’t just the old cynics I associate with. It was quite impossible to find anybody who believed the Epstein case would be resolved with a public trial. The whole thing was quite uncanny. One name which came up again and again was that of the former US president whose name, it is now known, appeared many times on flight logs of the Lolita Express.

Let’s be honest: has there been a death of a high-profile prisoner whose expiration has been so unsurprising?

 

A suggestion last week that Epstein would never trial because too many rich and influential people would have their names dragged through the mud and their sexual peccadillos exposed to the world during the provceedings would have been subjected to ridicule by the usual suspects, the media pundits who would have us believe the government is our friend and would never do anything that is not in our best interests, that Russia is The Great Satan of Revelations and that Syria’s President Assad is a monster whose idea of fun is to gas his own people and that the child raping, sex slave taking, journalist baking head amputators of ISIS were the right people to liberate the midle east from tyranny,  and called a right wing nut job and a “conspiracy theorist.”

Well now who are looking like naive, stupid, left wing nut jobs?

Most so called conspiracy theories are nothing of the kind. To qualify as a conspiracy theory, a speculation must contain a claim that the proposer has evidence that, for example, the moon landings ere filmed in a redundant sound stage at Universal Studios and that Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins were played by The Three Stooges . The author must then go on cite what he or she (but usually he,) believes is evidence of this.

There is not much point questioning the moon landing, but questioning the supposed chain of events surounding the death of President Kennedy, the World Trade Centre atrocity or the Las Vegas Shooting to cite three examples, should be seen as a good thing, because in each of those cases there were parts of the narrative that simply did not make sense.

Likewise why would Bashar Al Assad launch gas attacks against his own people when no only was he, with the help of his Russian and Iranian allies, winning the war but also, because whatever he may be he is not a stupid man, he must have known such actions would alienate many leaders sympathetic to his cause and would give the western coalition an excuse to launch direct attacks on his regime’s strongholds.

Such questioning of government narratives is a good thing because it encourages discussion. When it comes to conspiracy theories, there are three types of people apart from the media hacks who are paid to prop up the establishment propaganda. First there are the xself appointed ‘voices of reason’ who are quite determined to convince us the government and the global corporations are on our side, there is nothing untoward going on and we are told everything there is to know about every controversial issue. Believe that and you probably also believe in Santa Claus and the tooth fairy.  T oices of reason are themselves no slouches at pushing conspiracy theories, look back at how they were happy to believe the ‘proof’ of the Trump campaign’s collaboration with Russian agents in 2016 was beyond reasonable doubt, when that ‘proof’ was nothing more that a few unsubstantiated allegations from some very dodgy individuals in the pay of Trump’s opponents, or the way they were absolutely sure the attempted hit on former Russian agent Sergei Skripal was the work of hit men sent by the Russian government, when the main evidence consisted of a photoshopped picture of two vaguely foreign looking guys window shopping in a street that might have been in Britain.

The voices of reason confine themselves to spreading conspiracy theories about “official enemies” like Russia and Iran or personas non grata such as Nigel Farage or Tommy Robinsion. The deadliest conspiracy theory so far this century was the story spread in 2003 that Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein  had at his disposal Weapons of Mass Destruction with which he could launch deadly attacks on the west within forty five minutes. This narrative, fabricated for the purpose of justifying war on Iraq was  propagated through mainstream print and broadcast news media and repeated by those who routinely scoff at conspiracy theorists and label them “cranks.” I was told in a comment from somebody who claimed to be a research fellow at one of our top universities on one of my early blogs that only an idiot would disbelieve the threat of Saddam’s WMDs and soon people would see what a gullible clown I am.Seventeen years later we are still looking for Saddam’s secret weapons.

The same people have since then become quick to blame Russia for just about everything bad that happens, regardless of the lack of hard evidence.

The second category are those who seem to believe everything – or at least almost everything – is a conspiracy. The world is run by a kabal of shape shifting reptillians called The Illuminati, the Freemasons and the Elders of Zion are trying to create a New World Order, the aforementioned Moon landings were a Stanley Kubric movie. Every terrorist attack is a “false-flag”. and every mass shooting in the USA is the work of government agents

The third category, the majority most of us will hope, accept that while not everything is a conspiracy, it’s actually quite daft to think conspiracies never occur, especially when people involved are very wealthy and powerful and in some cases criminally insane and the stakes are extremely high.

Did anyone really think, deep down, given who, who and what the people he had dirt on were and the extremely serious nature of the charges he faced that Epstein’s case would ever get to court? Be honest. I’d reckon about 90 percent, even though they might not publicly admit it, would have been willing to bet a substantial portion of their life savings that he wouldn’t. Speaking as the grandson of a bookie, I have to say I grandad would not have taken any bets on it.

Here’s something from Twitter that sums it up perfectly:

Abi Wilkinson

@AbiWilks

“I’m not a conspiracy theorist” is such a weird assertion when you think about it, the idea there’s a binary between believing all conspiracies and flat out rejecting the very concept of conspiracy in all circumstances”

You really don’t have to be paranoid or  a habitual tin-foil hat wearer to smell a rat in this one. And questioning a narrative that does not make sense does not make one a conspiracy theorist. Let’s review some ofg the questions raised by the official version of events.

It was reported Epstein tried to kill himself about three weeks ago although therewas some speculation as to how he managed to inflict the injuries he received on himself, so if it was a sucide bid, why was he taken off suicide watch six days later? Who made that seemingly baffling decision? If he was still on suicide watch and a source cited in the New York Times was wrong, why wasn’t his death prevented?

If the authorities knew, as they would have, that the first alleged suicide bid was as Epstein himself claimed, the result of an attack by another prisoner, why was Epstein not given special protection?

Once he was a known sex offender, how did he get away with doing the same things as he had once served time for for so long? Who was protecting him and how far would they be prepared to go to ensure what he knew never became public.

These are only a few of the many questions that need to be answered. What is particularly interesting is the kind of people demanding answers. It’s not just the “usual” suspects who are routinely labeled cranks by the gatekeepers. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has called Epstein’s death “way too convenient.”

“How many other millionaires and billionaires were part of the illegal activities that he was engaged in?” he asked. Even the UK establishment’s propaganda agency, The BBC website has as its heading of a news story today “Jeffrey Epstein: Questions raised over financier’s death.”

The FBI is reported to be investigating the case, which in view of their failure to prosecute any member of Hillary Clinton’s campaign team over breches of national security which came to light in 2016 does not fill one with confidence.

Perhaps Epstein did after all, kill himself – prisoners facing the prospect of 45 years in jail are quite likely to be depressed; moreover the sociopathic billionaire might even have relished evading justice and depriving his accusers of their days in court. But until more evidence of his suicide such as CCTV video,  comes to light, it is reasonable to think that some other explanation for his sudden death.
