How the hell?

I recently posted an article about Jeffrey Epstein, pedophile and sex trafficker to the rich and powerful. And now I read that he committed suicide while in solitary confinement. How utterly convenient.

There is an article in The Hill asking the obvious questions — how did someone on suicide watch in solitary confinement commit suicide, and why was someone who was a danger only to himself placed in solitary confinement anyway? As the article, written by a former corrections commissioner, states:

None of this makes any sense, at least at this point.

The crime here — in my mind, with what is known at this point — is that Epstein was placed in solitary confinement at all.

Who wanted him to commit suicide? Other than a large number of very rich and powerful people?

UPDATE: Now I read that Epstein was not on suicide watch at the time of his death. So they put him in solitary confinement and took him off of suicide watch, even though he tried to commit suicide in prison (and almost succeeded) less than three weeks ago. WTF?

On top of that, Donald Trump is now retweeting a conspiracy theory that the Clintons were involved in Epstein’s death — saying “Word on the street is the Clintons did it.” Given that Trump often accuses others of doing things of which he himself is guilty, that makes me very suspicious.

    And he was transferred from state prison to Federal Prison where they took him off suicide watch.

    Follow the money: Who got paid?

    This all comes back to the “party” at Mar A Lago in 1992 where Trump and Epstein flew in underage girls for their pleasure. Of course Trump’s ignorant base isn’t going to believe any of that party news anyway.

    The people who should get the money when Epstein’s estate is settled are those who got took in the Pyramid scheme that financed his life. the other guy is out of prison. they never went after Epstein for the fraud. Also the women with the ruined lives.

    Hugely convenient for the useless rich and powerful that Jeffery Epstein rubbed elbows (and more?) with.

    Donny is the president of projection.

    Let the bodies begin to pile up to save this corrupt administration from the law. We might as well be in Russia.

    I am surprised he didn’t fly to Aspen, before he was arrested, where the rich and infamous go to conveniently die. Just heard on CNN that Epstein was not in solitary, and procedure would have had him in a cell with another, so perhaps he was, with a “dead ringer.”
    Heehee, the Clintons didn’t kill him, Trump sprung him.

    Isn’t it amazing that the Clintons lead a criminal cabal capable of killing Epstein in prison yet can’t manage to get Hillary elected but somehow the russian mafia backed clown got elected? /s

    In this case, I think it was orchestrated by those with much more money and power then even Clinton or Trump. This is the work of either the Uber wealthy or very old money.

    No matter what, it’s good to have him (Epstein) gone. And it it should provide an unlimited number of politically motivated conspiracy theories. Hollywood can’t make the stuff up…

    I didn’t think Putin’s cash flow was considered old money, blood money but not old money.
    This is straight out of the KGB playbook, Trumps mentor should be proud.

    Theories, in approximately descending order of likelihood:

    He was murdered by a Trump associate.
    He was murdered by a Clinton associate.
    He was murdered by a British Royal associate.
    He was murdered at some other plutocrat’s orders.
    He was murdered by a random inmate.
    He was murdered by a random guard.
    He was smuggled out and is now under witness protection.
    He smuggled himself out and is now overseas.
    He died from not having 3 orgasms a day.
    The Greys beamed him out.
    Tony Soprano got him.
    Sauron got him.
    He tripped and fell into a noose.
    He committed suicide.

    These are in approximately descending order of likelihood. Some you may swap around, like the first four; but I insist that the first four are first, and the last is last.

    I’ll take the Greys before I believe the suicide story. Now, I’m not saying that it’s aliens. I’m saying that it’s oligarchs.
