Jeremy Rides Again

My friend Jeremy Chiaroscuro, political consultant, has changed his mind. He has been saying that nothing could keep him from voting for any Republican presidential candidate against Biden or Harris or Gruesome, but he draws the line at Niki Hailey, a wholly owned subsidiary of the military industrial complex.

My friend Jeremy Chiaroscuro, Machiavellian political analyst, also makes light of all the fuss over Jeffrey Epstein, but he does have one suspicion.

When I asked him why he pooh-poohs the Epstein scandal, he laughed in my face. "You're kidding, right? All the media--TV, movies, magazines, newspapers, are selling sex to teens and pre-teens, but they don't even come a close second to government schools. If the government tells everyone to have as much and weird sex as they can from the earliest age, then Epstein was just a public spirited citizen, helping people to fulfill themselves."

He does point the finger at Epstein's repeated meetings with Ehud Barak. "Remember when the Clintons sent their political team to help Barak defeat Netanyahu? Put more simply, the Democratic Party overthrew the Republican-leaning Netanyahu pretty much they way they replaced a pro-Russian government in the Ukraine with a CIA puppet who can't even speak Ukrainian. Makes you think, doesn't it."

It goes without saying that I was disgusted by his false accusation. Besides, what good is thinking, anyway?

    Methinks your friend is right. Speaking of thinking, what about the thought that it’s all just a distraction? What other “news”are we not looking at now?

    As far as I understand it, the youngest prostitutes may have been, say, fifteen year olds who looked older, who ran away from home and lied about their ages to get a job? In any case, every time I hear the words “child sex” I then hear the word “seventeen”. Not exactly children. I saw an alleged partial list of visitors to the island, courtesy of someone on Musk’s X Twitter. Some of the female celebrities were a teenage boy’s wet dream.

    The whole child sex aspect of the Epstein case appears to signify nothing, other than perhaps a psy-op to throw people off the scent of a certain middle eastern intelligence agency and it’s nefarious deeds. It looks to me to be a lot like the whole “we didn’t go to the moon” affair, which lures and suckers otherwise intelligent and level headed people in, and gets them to say idiotic things when they should know better, except that it’s much more viral while managing to not be as silly.

    More interesting is Tucker Carlson’s idiocy with space aliens. What in the world is he thinking? That one may well be one last desperate psy-op on the part of a terrified, crumbling ruling class who are too ignorant and stupid think of anything less ridiculous.

    The one thing that rang true in Philip Roth’s childish fantasy about Nixon is the concocted distraction of reclaiming the Little Mermaid from Denmark. It is what modern governments do routinely.

    Jeremy’s connection of the three angles of the triangle–Barak, Epstein, and Clinton–should ring bells with those who recall Ambrose Evans-Pritchard’s reporting on Clinton both for the Telegraph and for The American Spectator. I do not recall what he put in his articles and what he told me on the occasions we met, in London and the US, but it was his contention that Vince Foster was the bag man for the Clintons and flew from DC to Tel Aviv, picked up the money, and took it to Switzerland where it was put in a numbered account eventually cracked by the FBI. Foster’s “suicide”–so reminiscent of Epstein’s–was a sign that he had run afoul either of the Mossad or the Arabs.
