    Perfect!!!! Thanks for setting the record straight and truth be told.

    This podcast has too much truth in it for most people to bear.

    I used to think that people should be forced to read Seutonius’ Lives of the Caesars over and over again so they could understand how the world really works, but then, it would probably only give some of them ideas.

  3. Robert Reavis says:

    Taki said and has been saying for years that Epstein was a pervert and a fraud and I believe him. Tom Fleming is speaking the truth too and I believe him also. But I don’t believe anything I hear on the news

  4. Ben says:

    Of all the podcasts regarding current events and this topic in particular , it’s not for Silvers. Bummer

    Judging by the comments, it seems DrTJF spoke the obvious truth but did not offer up any novel insights, no?

    The elitist creep didn’t commit suicide, but how can it be proven?

    As the commercial for AMEX used to say, “Membership has its privileges We’ll be posting a series of lectures and podcast discussions, one or emore per week. In the queue, is a new version of a talk I gave 9 months ago on immigration. Soon the lectures for the past two summer schools will be available, free to Charter subscribers and at a modest price for Ben.

    Depends on what you mean by “novel.” If I don’t have something different to say, I try to keep quiet. I also try to avoid speculation on matters in which I have no particular knowledge, as is the case with Epstein’s death. What matters is not how he died but the exemplary life he lived, a life whose style should have endeared him to the ruling class that pretends to condemn him.

    Dr. Fleming,

    Is there any chance that Dr. Wilson could be persuaded to resume his “ugly questions” posts from many years ago? I go back and read them from time to time and still laugh out loud….

  7. Robert Reavis says:

    Clyde Wilson is a good read under any disguise. As is Tom Fleming and most of his life long friendships. No conservative or traditionalist worthy of the name should ignore or disparage these elders who have actually done something that is only rarely seen or honestly accomplished in our time —— they earned the right to speak in public.

  8. Gary Arnett says:

    Those of us who were fortunate to have attended this year’s FF Summer Symposium will recall that
    Lady Margaret Beaufort was only thirteen when she gave birth to Henry Tudor, the future King of England and Lord of Ireland
    and first monarch of the House of Tudor.

  9. Ben says:

    To Gary: …and?

    I don’t recall because I wasn’t there, but I do understand the Lady never gave birth again [because she was too young for the first.]

  10. Jacob Johnson says:

    The idea of Elvis and Mick Jagger as underdogs at odds with the establishment seems to not add up when one considers they were given prime time slots on television and subsequent hagiographies. Also, the idea of “the occult” being hidden when one finds primers on astrology and love spells in the Barnes and Noble bargain bin while almost anything worthwhile really has to be searched for.

  11. Jacob Johnson says:

    Contrast this with the treatment given to someone who really says anything controversial.

  12. Robert Reavis says:

    Mr. Johnson,
    You spoke well. Occult practices were once hidden because their consequences were known and their costs unplayable. Our arrogance is such that Milton’s Satanic expression, “ Evil, be thou my good” is just another lifestyle choice of a free people.

  13. Jacob Johnson says:

    Thank you Mr. Reavis. Consideration of long term consequences seems to be out of fashion today.

  14. Jacob Johnson says:

    Or even not so long term consequences really.
