The big bad wolf is dead.
On Friday, August 9, 2019, new documents were unsealed in the case against Jeffrey Epstein that named several of the powerful men accused of sexually abusing minors procured for them by the disgraced financier. They included individuals such as former New Mexico governor and presidential candidate Bill Richardson; wealthy financier Glenn Dubin; former senator George Mitchell (who, like Richardson, is also a Democrat); MIT scientist Marvin Minsky; and Prince Andrew.
The very next day, Epstein allegedly committed suicide.
It was, in a sense, an apt end to saga that shares more than a few similarities with a British scandal from nearly six decades ago commonly known as the Profumo affair. As I've noted before here, at least half a dozen families linked to that particular sex scandal also appear in Epstein's black book. Elsewhere, President Donald Trump would later employ one the key American figures in the scandal.
The central figure in Profumo was an osteopath named Stephen Ward who also happened to procure girls for the British Establishment on the side. Like Epstein, Ward also allegedly committed suicide in the midst of legal proceedings deriving from his peculiar services to the Establishment. He expired on August 3, 1963, fifty-six years and a week to the day of Epstein's suicide.
To this end, he appears to have courted many leading scientists for decades in an effort to locate potential candidate to aide him in these objectives. In addition to the above-mentioned Minsky, they included such luminaries as Stephen Hawking, Murray Gell-Mann, Stephen Jay Gould, Oliver Sacks, George M. Church (a molecular engineer who works to identify genes that could be used to create "superior humans"), Frank Wilczek, Steven Pinker, and the arch skeptidick Lawrence Krauss. Krauss may have been a particularly good fit for Epstein, as he has reportedly been accused of sexual misconduct for over a decade. Of course, the Skeptics movement that Krause is so prominent in has its own curious ties to pedophilia.
But back to Stanley. The New York Times' revelations put Epstein's New Mexico Connection in the headlines after the sex offender's southwestern lair had avoided much scrutiny. While federal authorities recently reopened investigations into allegations of abuse at Epstein's residencies in New York City and Palm Beach, FL, his ranch at Stanley is presently only being looked at by New Mexico authorities. Nor did Epstein face any criminal charges in New Mexico, despite being accused of abusing a fifteen-year old girl there.
Clearly, there are some rather striking implications behind this most recent limited hangout. But before getting to the good stuff, a little more on the background of Epstein's ranch and the area surrounding it should noted. So, here you are:
Epstein purchased the property from the prominent Democrat Bruce King, a three term New Mexico governor, in 1993. King was born in Stanley and later died there. His family stills owns much of the land around Epstein's parcel. This would include King's son, Gary, a former attorney general in New Mexico and the Democratic candidate for governor there in 2014.
Bizarrely, the state of New Mexico itself owns a considerable chunk of land right in the middle of Epstein's parcel. Nothing is present on this tract save for a structure built into the ground at the southern end. This brings to mind the longstanding allegations that New Mexico is one location for a series of massive underground bases spread across these United States and beyond. The New Mexico local is often referred to a Dulce Base, and is supposedly located underneath the Archuleta Mesa at the Colorado/New Mexico border. In some more dubious accounts, the facility is said to be controlled by extraterrestrials. The Delta Force even allegedly engaged in a firefight with the Greys at some point down there.

What isn't speculative is the presence of the highly secretive Los Alamos National Laboratory less than an hour away. So far, the specter of nearby Los Alamos doesn't seem to have drawn much scrutiny from the conspiracy theorists, which is odd considering its connection to the Maxwell family.
As many of you are no doubt aware, a woman named Ghislaine Maxwell has been closely linked to Epstein's misadventures. Indeed, she is often described as the financier's "madam." Ghislaine also happens to hail from a family with a rather deep background, most notably her father Robert, who is alleged to have spied for the KGB, Mossad, and MI6 at various points. Nor is this a complete list of the intelligence services Maxwell was linked to over the course of his flamboyant life. To the public at large, however, he was principally known as a former Labour MP and publishing tycoon, something along the lines of a left wing Rupert Murdoch (who was a frequent rival of Maxwell's).
Much like Epstein, Robert Maxwell cultivated the scientific community, both in the East and West. Indeed, his ties to Soviet scientists appear to have lead to a decades-spanning relationship with various Eastern and Western intelligence agencies. His first publishing house, Pergamon Press, specialized in scientific journals. It had been set up by MI6 with an eye towards enabling Maxwell to cultivate the Soviet scientific community for the sake of espionage. This was briefly addressed by this researcher before here.
It wasn't until Maxwell began spying for Israel, however, that he set his sights on Los Alamos. During the early 1980s the Israelis had managed to acquire a version of PROMIS, a controversial piece of software developed by Inslaw. Inslaw had developed PROMIS on behalf of the Department of Justice to create a searchable database for files in the federal court system. In a sense, it was a kind of early search engine and as such, would be of great interest to both government agencies and multinational corporations that were trying to digitize their records.
As such, both the CIA and the Mossad separately created alternative versions of PROMIS with a "backdoor" inserted that would enable these intelligence agencies to view the files in the PROMIS databases without the users being aware of the eavesdropping. When the Mossad set out to market this "enhanced" version of PROMIS, Maxwell was tapped to serve as a kind of salesman.
One particular target the Israelis had in mind was Los Alamos, home of various US nuclear secrets and other cutting edge technology related to defense. Naturally, Maxwell took the lead on selling Los Alamos on this "enhanced" version of PROMIS. He parlayed his contacts in the Republican Party into a meeting with officials at the Sandia National Laboratory facility, located on Kirkland Air Force Base, in 1984. Sandia is a part of the Los Alamos network, and one especially close to American nuclear research.
Maxwell closed the deal less than a year later, giving the Israelis unparalleled access to American nuclear secrets in the process.
"In early February 1985, once more accompanied by an assistant and a secretary from IOD, Robert Maxwell returned to Sandia laboratories. He had come to sign the contract for Sandia to purchase the exclusive rights to the Promis software. He initialled each page of the document and signed his name with flourish on the last page. He gave as his title president and chief executive officer of Information on Demand. When it had been countersigned, he placed a copy of the contract in his briefcase. Snapping it shut, he handed the valise to the assistant, dismissing him and the secretary with the familiar wave of his hand.
"Maxwell was then given a celebratory luncheon in the Sandia boardroom. Then he and his entourage drove back to the waiting private jet. As it flew out over the desert, it once more passed the township with the prophetic name of Truth and Consequences.
"For unsuspecting Sandia, the truth was that Israel now had an electronic spy in the midst of, until now, the most secure of all nuclear facilities.
"It was a significant triumph for the Jewish state, for its prime intelligence service, Mossad, and for Rafi Eitan. It meant Israel would be able to depend less on the United States to ensure that its nuclear arsenal out in the Negev desert would remain at the cutting edge of developments. It would ensure that Israel would also still remain the only nuclear power in the Middle East."

Transhumanists have largely rejected these allegations on the basis that transhumanism has a broader aim than eugenics, which is largely based on genetic modification associated with reproduction. Transhumanism is concerned with improving the human stock by any means necessary. By rejecting the racialist and classist notions underlining "traditional" eugenics, transhumanists see a brave new world driven by a "humanist" world view. What becomes of those who either do not wish to be "improved," or can not afford to be, is generally vague.
"... in the spring of 1947... a group of intellectuals gathered at the other end of the lake at the base of Mont Pelerin. Taking their name from the location, the Mont Pelerin Society (MPS) became the germ of what it's organizer Hayek called 'the neoliberal movement.' Among those gathered were Mises, Ropke, Robbins, and two future Nobel Memorial Prize winners, Milton Friedman and George Stigler....
"In Hayek's words, the intention of the MPS was to allow for 'personal contact among the proponents of neoliberalism,' to 'erect a coherent edifice of... neoliberal thought, and to work out its practical application to the problems of different countries.' This involved personal contact as well as translation and distribution of key texts to stimulate the 'flow of neoliberal ideas.' Like the meetings in Geneva and Paris in the 1930s, the MPS was global in both its mandate and its objective of study. Hayek felt that socialists had too long monopolized the language of internationalism. Neoliberals needed to have the courage of their convictions and exhibit the boldness to do what socialists had done for half a century: dream of utopia. They must conceive of the world they wanted to see, even if that seemed impractical or implausible."

Case in point, Friedman's grandson. Patri is considered to be at the vanguard of a far right ideology variously known as "neo-reaction" (sometimes abbreviated as NRx) or the more elegant "Dark Enlightenment." Other leading thinkers include the likes of Nick Land and Curtis Yarvin, who are often credited as the founders. Both Land and Yarvin have paid tribute to the influence of billionaire tech investor Peter Thiel on their thinking. Neo-reaction has been described as a post-libertarian futurism, with a strong fetish for authoritarian and/or monarchist social structures. I've briefly addressed this ideology before here. A far more substantive account can be found here.
While often depicted as a highly fringe movement, much of its inspiration hails from elite ideologies such as neo-liberalism and transhumanism. As such, it is hardly surprising to find Milton Friedman's grandson among the ranks. But even more curious is that Patri's most notable contribution to neo-reaction appears to have been inspired by Epstein. Shuja Haider writing for Viewpoint Magazine notes:
"But the most utopian (dystopian?) wing of NRx literally aims to build Lovecraftian cities in the sea. This project, called Seasteading, is championed by Yarvin’s on-and-off co-conspirator Patri Friedman, whose grandfather Milton Friedman happens to be the economist responsible for the most extreme free market policies in the modern world. Peter Thiel was once Seasteading’s principal backer, as well as an investor in Urbit.
"It’s not hard to see why floating sovereign states, out of any existing nation’s jurisdiction, would appeal to the super-rich. At their most innocuous, they might serve as an extension of an offshore bank, allowing for evasion of any type of redistributive tax policy. They also bring to mind the activities of wealthy men like Jeffrey Epstein, who used his private Caribbean island to throw bacchanalian parties for his millionaire and billionaire friends, allegedly revolving around the sexual assault of minors."
But Epstein certainly seems like the kind of man neo-reaction would have a certain appeal for.

"The confusing maze of corridors, moreover, is an inept design for a residence. But a maze is what one finds at Knossos. A labyrinth, to use its real name, a word assimilated into Greek from the pre-Greek language, as is the name of Knossos itself. A labyrinth is the 'place of the labrys.' A 'labrys' is a double axe, an axe with edges that cut in both directions. It was a symbol of the religion practiced at Knossos, like the crucifix in Christianity. Ornamental exemplars have been found, as well as much sturdier implements for actual use.
"And like the cross, it was the symbol of the sacrificial death. The labrys was used to slaughter the bull, and the bull was the taurine manifestation of the bovine Queen's consort. Originally not a bull, but the consort himself, was the victim. Between the two edges of an axe that cuts in both directions is the sharp divide, the razor's edge, the midmost point – beyond which lies another world. The labrys symbolizes renewal through death, and when kings became less expendable, other humans came to be substituted in the king's role, supposedly as willing sacrificial victims, uniting the living with the dead to revitalize the fertility of the Goddess and of the mortal women who joined as a trinity of sisters in her worship. The labyrinth itself, with its contorted and confusing passageways, was emblematic of the Goddess, like a maze of entrails leading to the womb, which is the gateway for life and death.
"At the center of the labyrinth of Knossos was a courtyard, where the offering of human victims was performed as an acrobatic dance with a real bull. Both males and females were afforded this deadly honor, two groups of seven each year, at the time of Theseus, before he put an end to this practice. As the bull lunged, the dancers were expected to grasp the bull's horns and attempt to flip themselves in a somersault through the horns and over the bull's back, to land gracefully upright behind the bull. A difficult task, and more often, no doubt the dancer failed, but even a close brush with death might satisfy the need, or demonstrate the deity's moment of benevolence. The narrow and dangerous passageway through the horns was another way that these people symbolized the point where life and death convened."
(The World of Classical Myth, Carl A.P. Ruck & Danny Staples, pg. 28)
Which begs the question, who exactly is meant to be seeing this symbol, with all its sinister implications, projected by Epstein?
Or perhaps not. In Robert Maxwell, Israel's Super Spy Gordon Thomas and Matt Dillon propose that Robert Maxwell's sudden death in 1991 via falling off his yacht into the ocean was in fact a hit carried out by Israel. With Maxwell's empire unraveling at the time, the Israelis would have had numerous reasons to kill him, but certainly his knowledge of the Jewish state's theft of US nuclear secrets surely would have been high on the list.

No doubt the August 9th revelations were concerning in certain quarters as well. But many of the names such as Bill Richardson (another New Mexico Democrat) and Prince Andrew had already been linked to Epstein for years now. And the Jimmy Savile revelations made the notions of elite pedophile rings far less taboo than they've ever been.
But the implications of The New York Times piece --that the sex trafficking of minors may be providing funds for black research centered on eugenics --is something else entirely. Make light of Epstein's desire to freeze his penis all you want, but these revelations are on an entirely different level. Did Epstein or someone close to him (like, say, Robert Maxwell's daughter, Ghislaine) leak this high weirdness to The Times as part of an insurance policy in the aftermath of Epstein's first reputed "suicide" attempt?
