Is Justice Finally Coming for the DOJ/FBI Cabal?

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

“The wheels of justice turn slowly but they grind exceedingly fine.” – Sun Tzu

There goes Trump, attacking CNN again. – Fox News is reporting this afternoon that U.S. attorney Jessie Liu has recommended proceeding with charges against former Deputy FBI Director and current high-paid contributor at CNN and Democrat Party donor Andrew McCabe. Can’t wait to see that little bald fat guy, Brian Stelter, try to spin this one on behalf of the fakest news channel on television.

While the news that the Department of [No] Justice is finally apparently going to move to prosecute one of the major bad actors in the Obama-era effort to fix the 2016 election and then to take down a duly elected President of the United States is encouraging, the details of the Fox story are still troubling.

Take a gander at this passage, for example:

U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu has recommended moving forward with charges against Andrew McCabe, Fox News has learned, as the Justice Department rejects a last-ditch appeal from the former top FBI official.

McCabe — the former deputy and acting director of the FBI — appealed the decision of the U.S. attorney for Washington all the way up to Jeffrey Rosen, the deputy attorney general, but he rejected that request, according to a person familiar with the situation.

The very fact that McCabe’s lawyers were allowed to appeal a decision by a U.S. attorney all the way up to the deputy attorney general’s office is an utter disgrace, yet another indication of the persistence of the two-tiered system of justice that continues to exist within the DOJ. What other American citizen would have been allowed to do such a thing? Such a request coming from you or me would have never even been considered.

Then there’s this from the Fox story:

Last month, a source close to the process told Fox News that McCabe had a “target on his back” because of the Justice Department inspector general findings.

That’s a reference to DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report issued way back in March, 2018, which found that McCabe had repeatedly misled the IG’s investigators in their search for the truth about the Hillary Clinton email cover-up. That report contained multiple criminal referrals targeting McCabe, but all it got him was being fired by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Now, suddenly, we have a U.S. attorney who’s gotten around to figuring that hey, maybe we ought to actually pursue a little justice where McCabe’s concerned. Go figure.

Or maybe, just maybe, McCabe’s decision to sue the DOJ over that firing finally pissed off enough people within the Department – maybe AG William Barr himself – that they finally decided to pursue some real justice against a cabal member in good standing. Let’s remember that Ms. Liu is the same U.S. attorney who decided in August that she just could not decide whether or not to prosecute McCabe, and referred the decision back to main Justice. What changed between then and now?

Whatever the reason for today’s decision, it represents a true crossing of the rubicon, as it involves the first prosecution of any of the Obama-era bad actors. We can hope against hope that it’s just the first of many more similar prosecutorial actions to come related to the DOJ/FBI bad actors who attempted to execute a coup d’etat on American soil. Nobody has ever more richly deserved a good nationally-televised perp walk more than McCabe and his many compatriots.

That is all.

James Comey Walks Free, For Now

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, James Comey walks free, for now. – That was the big uproar on Thursday, and my only question is why did the media and politicians treat it as if was some sort of news? We have known for three solid weeks now that the Department of Justice had decided not to prosecute the nation’s most prominent Teenage Drama Queen for his rampant internal malfeasance. So, why was everyone tossing such a fit about it?

Assuming William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham really are performing an investigation into the origins of Spygate – which is far from a safe assumption at this point – I can even understand the rationale behind merely humiliating Comey with yesterday’s Inspector General report documenting his serial leaking of FBI documents. After all, the Department of Justice theoretically does not possess unlimited resources to pursue every case that comes its way – unless your name is Roger Stone or Paul Manafort, of course – so better to conserve those resources for prosecuting Comey’s role in the failed coup d’etat that was mounted within the FBI and other agencies against President Donald Trump throughout 2016 and 2017.

Still, with every tweet he issues and every TV appearance he makes, Comey personifies the dual system of justice that continues to exist in our country. Because the simple fact of the matter is that if you or I leaked FBI documents to the New York Times, whether directly or through a “friend,” you or I would be spending time in the federal pokey.

It is now crystal clear that former Attorney General Jeff Sessions never had any intention of lifting a finger to end that duality within our justice system, and we have all hoped William Barr would be different. Yet, here we sit, fully six months into Barr’s term in office without having seen a single perp walk, indictment, or even any clear indication that he or Durham have taken the step of convening a grand jury. We did, finally, at long last, get the latest IG report from the plodding Michael Horowitz’s office on Thursday, and it turns out to be just another exercise in finger shaking at just another naughty boy that produces no real result and no real public satisfaction that anything real is actually being done.

The next bit of Horowitz-produced Kabuki theater, his full report on the abuse of the FISA process that enabled the Spygate operation to take place, will be the next shoe to drop. The public record is damning on Comey’s role in all of that – he lied repeatedly to the FISA court about the veracity of the Steele Dossiere and its contents. He put his personal signature on FISA applications that he knew to be outright frauds on the Court, a reality borne out by his own testimony before congress. We know the same about Rod Rosenstein, Sally Yates and others.

Supposedly that long-overdue report will drop shortly after Labor Day. Supposedly. Will it contain any criminal referrals, and if it does, will they be pursued by the DOJ? That’s an open question. After all, Horowitz’s April 2018 report targeting Andrew McCabe contained criminal referrals, and the only thing DOJ did to McCabe was fire him. Today, McCabe is not only a free man, he is a highly-paid “contributor” to CNN. He and Comey probably popped the cork on a bottle of Dom last night to celebrate Comey’s continuing liberty.

Rumors have been flying around this week that Barr and Durham are indeed about to finally, at long last indict McCabe for his various well-documented crimes. If so, that would represent a good start. But it would be just a start.

If it is really his true intention to try to restore Americans’ faith in our system of justice, William Barr has miles to go before he sleeps.

That is all.

New Poll: Just 1 in 3 Americans Believe the Official Story about Jeffrey Epstein’s Death

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

When the top line of a new poll is not the real story.–  I laughed out loud when I saw the topline numbers of the new Emerson College poll that was released this morning. My laughter was totally at the expense of Irish Bob O’Rourke, who has now dropped below the likes of Cory Booker, Tulsi Gabbard and Andrew Yang in the pecking order of this particular poll. 

Mere words cannot express the amount of pleasure it gives this 7th-generation Texan to see this fraudulent circus clown falling down into 4th-tier status, relegated to competing with the likes of Amy Klobuchar and Julian Castro for the crumbs that fall from the vote-filled cookies being consumed by Crazy Uncle Joe and The Commie.

For purposes of illustrating that joy, here is what I looked like at about 11:00 CT this morning:

Hey, don’t judge me! I had to sit through interminable hours of ads for this guy’s failed senate campaign last year – I’m entitled to a minute or two of heavy gloating. So is Senator Ted Cruz, come to think of it.

Anyway, I initially thought this was the big story out of this otherwise unsurprising poll, and figured that I’d focus on that, along with Yang’s fairly surprising 4% and Mayor Pete’s continuing fade from relevance for this afternoon’s Update.

But then I browsed through news reports about the poll, and came across this one at Business Insider:

  • Only 33% of Americans agree with an autopsy report that says Jeffrey Epstein died by suicide, according to a new poll.
  • The Emerson College poll also found that 34% of respondents said they believe he was murdered, falling in line with numerous conspiracy theories that have flourished since the disgraced financier’s death.

So, three weeks of fake news media reports assuring us that Epstein’s extremely convenient death was a simple suicide, after the autopsy came back in support of that finding, and after what we are supposed to believe was a full and complete investigation by the stalwart “rank and file” of the FBI, only one in three Americans are actually buying the official narrative here.

Business Insider, as an arm of Yahoo News, naturally blames it all on “conspiracy theories” being promoted by those nasty people on social media, and to be honest, there have been a lot of alternative theories thrown into the public mix about Epstein’s demise. Still this 33% belief in the official narrative represents an extraordinary failure by those who have invested so much time and effort in its promotion.

The reasons for that have little to do with the promotion of “conspiracy theories,” though. In fact, the biggest problem that the FBI and its fake media toadies have here comes in the form of the actual facts about the case that have been made public.

There are just too many odd coincidences that took place related to the security measures for the government’s most high-profile prisoner to be believed by anyone capable of critical thought processes. This is, after all, the same federal law enforcement complex who the fake news media has been assuring us is pretty much infallible since it became publicly known that they attempted to fix the 2016 elections.

But now, that same fake news media expects you all to believe that, in a case involving a life-long pedophile billionaire who happened to be running buddies with all manner of prominent leftist political figures and celebrities, why, that infallible federal law enforcement complex was just as bumbling and clownishly-incompetent as can be! Just your ordinary, everyday confluence of incompetence and bad luck, folks! Nothing to see here! Go on about your business! um, please?

As is pretty much always the case, Americans are not as stupid as the fake media believes them to be. After all, if they were that stupid, Irish Bob O’Rourke would be a U.S. Senator now, Stacey Abrams would be Governor of Georgia, and Al Gore would be a former President instead of the second incarnation of P.T. Barnum.

What we are seeing here is sort of a 56 years-later replay of the aftermath of the John F. Kennedy assassination. Because there was no Internet or social media back in 1963, it took a lot longer to happen, but once all the disturbing facts surrounding that killing of a U.S. president slowly made their way into the public domain, public belief in the official narrative, which had been initially fairly high, plummeted.

That skepticism about the official findings that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin lingers into modern times. In a poll published in October, 2017, FiveThirtyEight found that just 33% of Americans buy into the Oswald-as-lone-nut theory.

The reality is that the 1 in 3 Americans who still buy into the official stories related to Epstein and Oswald believe them mainly because they, like Fox Mulder, want to believe. Many Americans just cannot accept the reality that their government would intentionally lie to them, yet there is no longer any doubt at all that the Warren Commission’s report was filled with hundreds if not thousands of outright lies about what happened in Dallas when JFK was killed. The government withheld all sorts of evidence in that case and lied about so much more.

So, if most of the public is skeptical about what we are being told happened to Jeffrey Epstein, they have very valid reasons for feeling that way, and our fake news media has played an enormous role in creating that lingering lack of trust.

That is all.

William Barr’s Time for Choosing has Arrived

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Boy, here’s a shocker, huh? – Footage from a camera stationed outside the cell in which pedophile and longtime pal of the Clintons Jeffrey Epstein mysteriously died a few weeks ago has been deemed as “unusable” by federal investigators. Oh, golly, how surprising that is.

Ok, it’s not surprising at all, is it? Seriously, this is like a bad episode of Jake and the Fat Man at this point. Was there anybody with a functioning brain still out there who did not fully expect to read this report at some point soon?

Hey, here’s another question someone at our Department of No-Justice should answer: Why has it taken so long for this “news” to be made public? Epstein was found dead in his cell 17 days ago – are we now being asked to believe it took that long for those eagle-eyed FBI guys to actually think to review video footage? How obvious is it that the real answer here is that the FBI no doubt reviewed the video evidence as a first step, but waited until public attention on the case had died down before letting this crucial piece of information out to the press?

The other little bit of news in the Washington Post story linked above is this:

Prosecutors have since moved to drop the charges against Epstein – although they continue to investigate those who might have conspired with him. A federal judge has scheduled a hearing for Tuesday to consider the matter and has indicated that those who say Epstein victimized them will be allowed to speak in court.

Well, of course. You can’t prosecute a very conveniently dead man, now, can you? But gosh, isn’t is just so sweet that a few of Epstein’s thousands of victims will be allowed to “speak in court?” I’m sure that will make it all better for them.

As for this nonsense about prosecutors continuing to investigate Epstein’s conspirators, well, we can’t help noticing that Ghislain Maxwell continues to just fly all over the world, free as a bird, or perhaps free as Hillary Clinton and James Comey and Andrew McCabe and Peter Strzok and on and on and on.

The big question in all of this and so much more is, when will Attorney General William Barr do something real, something other than talking a good game, something to prove that he is  a real AG and not just the second coming of Jeff Sessions?

Well, a golden opportunity to do so just landed in his lap. Useless apparatchik U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu decided she just can’t decide whether or not to prosecute Andrew McCabe for his serial leaking of classified information and lying about it to superiors within the DOJ. Thus, that decision will now be made at DOJ headquarters in Washington, DC.

Here is your moment, Mr. Barr. You have a suspect whose internal behavior was so poor so frequently that he merited the conduct of a full-fledged Inspector General investigation, the report from which was issued way back in April, 2018. That report was so disturbing that even the otherwise feckless Sessions decided to fire McCabe. It also contained criminal referrals for McCabe’s repeatedly lying to investigators and superiors at the FBI and DOJ, the same alleged crimes for which Special Counsel Robert Mueller prosecuted and threw several people in jail during the course of his Witch Hunt.

Here is a chance for Mr. Barr to conclude a process that has gone on for so long that at least one U.S. Attorney quit her job over the slow pace of the decision-making by Liu and others. From the New York Times report:

…[the case]… has been under investigation for so long that the term expired for the grand jury hearing evidence. One of the lead prosecutors, Kamil Shields, was unhappy with the lengthy decision-making process and has since left the Justice Department for private practice. Ms. Shields declined to comment.

This is a case into which a real, decisive Attorney General would step and do the right thing. It’s a clear and unambiguous opportunity for William Barr to demonstrate that the two-tiered system of justice that existed in our country for the 24 years before Donald Trump took office will come to an end under his watch.

If Andrew McCabe is allowed to skate and go onto become wealthy thanks to his benefactors at CNN, then we all should forget about any of the bad actors who tried to fix the 2016 election and mounted a failed coup d’etat against a sitting President of the United States ever seeing anything resembling “justice.”

For William Barr, the time for choosing has arrived.

That is all.

McCabe Hiring Consolidates the Spookification of Our News Media

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Should we change their names to CIANN and MSFBI? – After the news-fakers over at CNN added disgraced serial liar Andrew McCabe to its roster of paid contributors on Friday, the Daily Caller News Foundation notes that CNN and MSNBC now openly and proudly employ no fewer than 15 former employees of the myriad U.S. intelligence agencies.

That’s right: 15. Amazingly enough, America’s national Teenage Drama Queen, James Comey, is not among them. But he and McCabe were out on the CIANN airwaves performing as your basic Abbott and Costello tag team of Clintonian non-denial denial in the wake of the claims being made by Patrick Byrne, the former CEO of Overstock, that their FBI mounted a spying campaign against no fewer than four presidential campaigns during 2015-16.

Comey, when contacted by a CIANN fake reporter, would only give the same sort of cryptic answer that he posts on his Twitter feed: “The FBI doesn’t work that way.” Yet, we know with 100% certainty based on the public record available today that the FBI under James Comey did indeed “work that way” when it came to spying on the Trump campaign, going so far as to run operatives at certain members of the campaign in obvious efforts to entrap them. That is simply unarguable at this point, even without anymore documents being declassified.

The mouthy McCabe, as is his self-destructive habit, was more verbose in his non-denial denials. Check out this passage from the CIANN story:

Former FBI deputy director and CNN contributor Andrew McCabe said he hadn’t heard of Byrne until the former CEO revealed his relationship with Butina.
“His allegation that his potential cooperation with the FBI was somehow discussed at the highest levels certainly never happened when I was there,” McCabe, who held the No. 2 role at the agency beginning in 2016 until his firing in 2018, said Friday on CNN’s “New Day.”
McCabe said it was “certainly possible” that Byrne volunteered information about Butina to the FBI, but disputed the claim that agents would have told Byrne to “engage in a romantic relationship with a suspected Russian intelligence agent.”
“That is simply not the sort of thing that the FBI does,” McCabe said.

Let’s break that down, starting with the last statement, “That is simply not the sort of thing that the FBI does,” which is pretty much exactly what his former partner in cri…er…”boss” Comey said. Would it surprise anyone out there if Comey and McCabe had gotten together on the phone to coordinate messaging in advance of taking any appointments from friendly fake media outfits?

And let’s look at that first statement: “His allegation that his potential cooperation with the FBI was somehow discussed at the highest levels certainly never happened when I was there.” In the context of that very carefully-worded sentence, the phrase “at the highest levels” could mean he is denying that he and Comey, then the two highest officials at the FBI, never got together and discussed this program, which certainly could be true within what Byrne is alleging, given that he is claiming his orders came from Peter Strzok, not Comey or McCabe.

Let’s remember that Strzok did not report directly to either one of these non-denial artists at that time. Thus, it would have been very easy to compartmentalize all internal communications about any domestic espionage operations in order to provide both McCabe and Comey with a sweet level of plausible deniability about the matter.

But “at the highest levels” could also mean that Comey never discussed the spying effort with then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch, or that Lynch never discussed it with then-President Barack Hussein Obama his own self.

In other words, neither Comey nor McCabe actually “denied” any element of Byrne’s story, which is nothing unusual. This is just how they do things in spook-world.

As for the 15 ex-spooks now employed at CNN and MSNBC, you can be sure most of them are still serving as active informants and operatives for the FBI, CIA and various other intelligence agencies. You can also be sure that many other employees at those two cable channels and other big establishment media outlets are also serving in similar roles. These agencies have since their creation always made it a practice to place or recruit media members to serve in such jobs.

Remember, when President Donald Trump forced the release of a raft additional documents related to the JFK assassination in late 2017, we discovered that, as of November 1963, the CIA alone had no fewer than 42 assets placed in the country’s various media outlets. Given the way the number of both media outlets and intelligence agencies have multiplied over the last 56 years, you can be sure the number of spook plants within those outlets has grown apace.

The only aspect of this longstanding infiltration of our news media that has changed is that today, fake media operations like CIANN and MSFBI proudly announce that they are paying gobs of money to these spooks for the privilege of airing their deceptions to the public.

All of which is just one more reason why you should never take anything reported by any establishment media organization at face value. Honestly, it is becoming almost impossible to find anything resembling real news being reported anymore.

The Spookification of our media establishment is pretty much complete.

That is all.

FBI “Investigation” of Jeffrey Epstein’s Death Comes to the Most Predictable Conclusion Possible

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This was so predictable that you wonder why they even went through the ruse. – Attorney General William Barr announced yesterday that his intrepid FBI “investigators” have managed to find no evidence that would dispute the coroner’s finding that serial pedophile pal of the Clintons Jeffrey Epstein committed “suicide” in a New York federal prison. Because of course that’s what our dumpster fire FBI found.

So, a couple of prison guards and the prison warden have been “reassigned,” Barr has ousted the head of the Bureau of Prisons (sacrificial lamb) and installed another one, and the whole thing will be blamed on “incompetence” and “irregularities” in the holding of the federal government’s most high-profile witness. Which is pretty much exactly what I told you was going to happen the day after Epstein was found dead in his cell.

If you are expecting actual “justice” here, you’re going to need another Justice Department, because the current one was irreparably corrupted by 8 years of Barack Hussein Obama.

As a reader notes, we should expect the cremation of Epstein’s body to take place soon and receive only passing mention in some remote crevasse of the New York Times.

How pathetic is Bill DeBlasio and his presidential campaign? – So pathetic that even the Democrat Pravda Channel CNN is making fun of his sounding like a chipmunk while calling into some poorly-attended labor event yesterday:

Now, that’s pathetic. And funny.

Farethewell, Jay, we hardly knew ye. – Washington State Governor Jay Inslee told MSNBC fake host Rachel Maddow that he will be leaving the presidential race, a race that 99% of Americans didn’t even know he was in. Not that anyone really cares, but the irony of 0%-polling Governor pulling out at this particular moment in time comes in the fact that he’s leaving the race just two weeks before Democrat Pravda Channel CNN hosts the long-awaited-by-no-one “Climate Change” debate for which Inslee has advocated for months.

Indeed, Inslee’s entire campaign was based on his pushing of the Climate Change scam, which he sees as so desperately urgent that we must all become just like Venezuela in order to fight it. No one at CNN or anywhere else in the fake news media will point this out, but that’s probably why Inslee consistently polled at 0%. Because, repeat after me, MOST AMERICANS DON’T WANT THIS COUNTRY TO BE VENEZUELA.

The good news for Americans is that no one outside of Washington will ever have to worry about hearing Inslee’s name again. The bad news for Washingtonians is that now Inslee can re-double his efforts to turning their state into a socialist utopia, just like Venezuela.

That is all.

Jeffrey Epstein Associate Ghislain Maxwell Prefers In-N-Out

Today’s Campaign Update, Part III
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

No kidding. Turns out the rumors running around about Jeffrey Epstein’s associate and alleged procurer Ghislaine Maxwell hiding out somewhere in France were just more bad rumors.

As reported by the New York Post, she’s actually in LA, and was caught dining at an In-N-Out Burger on Monday by an enterprising regular who snapped a shot of her. Hilariously, the Post’s tattle-tale source said she was reading a book titled “The Book of Honor: The Secret Lives and Deaths of CIA Operatives.”

Because of course that was the book she was reading. Right? Right.

More from the Post story:

Maxwell reportedly recruited underage girls for Epstein and participated in their abuse. At least two women who accused Epstein of sexually abusing them sued Maxwell in 2015, alleging she launched a campaign to damage their reputations and discredit their allegations.

A new front in the Epstein case opened Wednesday morning as his accuser, Jennifer Araoz, filed a lawsuit against his estate, Maxwell and three unnamed female household staff members.

And this:

Once spotted, Maxwell — who was sitting alone with a pet pooch — told an onlooker: “Well, I guess this is the last time I’ll be eating here!”

You seriously can’t make this stuff up, folks.

Police and the FBI have reportedly been scouring the globe for Maxwell, hoping to secure her testimony in the still-ongoing case involving Epstein. Hopefully the Keystone Cops who couldn’t be bothered to keep their star suspect alive will have someone monitoring the New York Post and will now redirect their intrepid investigative expertise towards California.

Hooboy.

That is all.

The FBI Raids Epstein Island, Six Weeks Too Late

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

How is this just now happening???? – Jeffrey Epstein was taken into federal custody way back on June 6, six full weeks ago, and the raging dumpster fire that is Christopher Wray’s FBI just now finally got around to “raiding” the pedophile’s “Pedo Island”. That’s right, it took them six weeks to finally think, hey, maybe we ought to go see if we can, like, find some evidence or something on the island which was, if all the documents and flight logs and depositions and affidavits are to be believed, the epicenter of Epstein’s human slavery pedophilia ring. SIX WEEKS.

The FBI was so late in organizing its “raid” that some enterprising soul even managed to get away with the golden dome that used to sit atop the island’s alleged orgy chapel:

Pedophile Island: The golden dome that formally sat atop Jeffrey Epstein's temple on Little St James is gone in recent photos (domeless temple above)

Here’s what the “chapel” used to look like:

Hidden messages: The temple has been of great interest to members of the QAnon community, who had been talking about the island long before Epstein's arrest

That dome is probably now a trophy on a shelf in a big house somewhere around, oh, say, Chappaqua, New York. Just speculating, of course.

[Ok, the dome was actually blown off the chapel by a storm a couple of years ago, but it makes such a great metaphor.]

Given the FBI’s recent history, today’s visit to Epstein’s island by a dozen or so agents is just as likely to be a clean-up and cover-up operation as it is to be any sort of actual investigation. It is ridiculously naive to take anything this agency does at face value at this point.

The reports of the raid – the story was of course broken not by any U.S.-based news organization, but the the UK-based Daily Mail – came just a few hours after Attorney General William Barr made remarks about the case during a speech in which he promised his Justice Department would continue its investigation into the Epstein case and pursue justice for the victims of his depravity. All of which is great and I wish I had the capacity to actually believe Barr is really sincere. But at this point, after so much wasted time and such a dearth of any results at all, I find it impossible to summon up such faith in anyone associated with the DOJ any longer.

But let’s say this really is a raid in search of evidence. Six long weeks after Epstein was taken into custody, what in the hell would anyone think would still be on that island? Can Wray and his feckless troops really be so dim, so utterly inept and incompetent that they actually think none of Epstein’s customers would have had the presence of mind to hire some professional cleaners to get out there ahead of them by now?

C’mon, man, how naive do you all think we are?

Ok, don’t answer that. Nevermind. I really don’t want to know

*sigh*

That is all.

Don’t Expect Justice For Epstein’s Victims From This Justice Department

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Now that convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein has committed the most conveniently-timed “suicide” in American history, no one in their right minds should expect our Department of Justice to provide any form of real justice for the many women who suffered at the hands of Epstein and – allegedly – his many very powerful friends and associates.

After all, this “suicide” happened under the not-so-watchful eye of that selfsame DOJ, given that the Bureau of Prisons resides within that organization. And Epstein was not just any random prisoner within that prison system – he was perhaps the most high-profile accused suspect currently residing within its confines. With allegations swirling that a former president – and a sitting one, come to think of it – a former secretary of energy and New Mexico governor, a former president’s wife, a former senate majority leader, and a prince of England were all participants in his pedophilia escapades, no prisoner had attracted more public and media attention than the owner of “Love Island” and the “Lolita Express.”

Making the circumstances surrounding this “suicide” even more suspicious – and the blackeye for the DOJ even blacker – is the fact that Epstein supposedly had tried to commit suicide just last month and had supposedly been placed on a “suicide watch” and locked into solitary confinement since that time. As a result, he supposedly had guards stationed just outside his prison cell around the clock, seven days a week, as well as closed-circuit TV cameras monitoring him.

Yet, despite that extremely high and very public profile and despite all of these safety measures having supposedly been taken to ensure this prisoner remained alive to face trial, the New York Times and the rest of our mainstream news media would have us all take at face value this explanation of events:

“Mr. Epstein hanged himself, the officials said. He was found at roughly 6:30 a.m. Saturday at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan and was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, the federal Bureau of Prisons said in a statement.”

Oh, but don’t worry, the Times tell us, because help is on the way:

“The Federal Bureau of Investigation will examine Mr. Epstein’s death, the Bureau of Prisons said.”

Yes, friends, the folks at the raging dumpster fire that is Christopher Wray’s F.B.I. will now “investigate” the circumstances of the “suicide” of the Bureau of Prisons’ most high-profile prisoner. We can rest assured that that inquiry will be carried out with every bit of the diligence and due process we saw during the F.B.I.’s conduct of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server. Hey, maybe we can go ahead and give Peter Strzok his old job back so he can lead this “investigation,” too!

*sigh*

Here’s what is really likely to happen:

Soon, probably before August is out, some U.S. Attorney at the Southern District of New York – hey, maybe James Comey’s daughter? – will stand before the cameras and announce that it is just soooo darn impossible to continue in this investigation now that the alleged perp happens to be dead. Never you mind that the existence and willing testimony of all these victims is still available; never mind that Epstein’s alleged facilitator, Ghislaine Maxwell remains among the living, at least for now; why, the DOJ’s vaunted and massively-staffed SDNY just doesn’t have the capacity for pursuing such a complex and difficult case any longer.

Next, a few weeks later, someone at the F.B.I. will quietly issue a written statement that says, “yep, he committed suicide all right, and no one at the prison or anyone else in authority did anything wrong at all. That’s right. You betcha.”

Then, if these developments result in any ongoing uproar from the public or the media, Attorney General Barr will order his plodding Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, to perform an internal investigation into the Bureau of Prisons’ handling of Epstein. Given that Horowitz appears to take more than 18 months to go to the restroom, this will ensure that we will hear nothing more about the matter until safely after the 2020 elections have come and gone.
