The swamp that swallows all sewage: The case of Jeffery Epstein

As a dual citizen (US/Canadian) my attention is often drawn to the news from my birth country, which at the moment, seems to be going spectacularly mad. The rotten news coming out of America is overwhelming, and Canadian responses, in my opinion, are exceedingly lame.  While Mexico, under a socialist leaning president, is trying to reclaim Mexican sovereignty over US hegemony, Canada seems more or less to have given up the struggle.  Certainly if the Canadian Conservative Party has its way we will finally become one with the land of the  free (never mind that other countries are currently advising their citizens not to go there in fear of gun violence) in all but name.


Actually facing up to the realization that Canada’s best friend and trading partner is not only an international bully, but lionizes an elitist prominent section of its society that is deeply depraved, is presently coming to the fore in the Jeffery Epstein saga. This is a bitter pill to swallow. Especially for an elderly woman who still thrills (although less and less) at the first strains of The Star Spangled Banner.  I know the prudent thing to do on these occasions is to take a big swig of the pink Kool-Aid offered by fake news every afternoon and take a long nap.  But I don’t think I am the only having trouble facing the facts of the Epstein case.  And the facts that Western elites (the 1%) only care for themselves in all important matters – financial, political, environmental, and social.


Why am I connecting a Canadian turn to the right with Jeffery Epstein? For starters, the very first question, aside from the fact of his death, is how did such a prominent society man get away with child trafficking for decades? And when officials did finally “notice” in 2007, it was because a few reporters shoved it under their noses. Even then Epstein was only given a gentle little smirking slap on the wrist:  13 months with the ability to keep “office hours” 12 hours a day, six days a week, with his cell in a private wing of the jail staffed with his own security. Even though he was now listed as a child sex offender.  And what was his business?  Nobody knows. He was rich because he was rich.  And the children he and his friends victimized were poor. No contest. The girls he trafficked were eaten alive (so to speak) by the rich, powerful paedophilic men who loved a good time.  These girls were considered by these men as toys, insufficiently human, or they couldn’t have committed such crimes on the hapless victims.  


I’m sure some of you have heard the rumors circulating that there are two other elements for consideration concerning Epstein’s background and death: espionage and murder. 


Alexander Acosta, who until recently was the US Labour Secretary, was the US attorney for Southern Florida at the time of the investigations into Epstein’s first charges.  In replying to a reporter about how such a serious crime as a child sex abuser could receive such a ‘nothingburger’ sentence Acosta replied that he was told to back away from the investigation because Epstein “belonged to intelligence”.


So was Epstein a spy?  If so, who was he spying for? Of course the first thing that comes to mind is the CIA.  But maybe not exclusively. Examining Chisliaine Maxwell’s background, Epstein’s reputed madam and pimp, may broaden out the picture a bit. Her father was reported to have worked for Mossad, the Israeli intelligence service.  He also died a suspicious death.  Also a supposed suicide.


Did he videotape sexual events and then blackmail the rich powerful men he invited into his paedophile ring? The whole truth about Epstein and his female trafficking ring may never be known, as the swamp swallows everything that seriously threatens its dominance. But the swamp cannot cover up the fact that there are two related social wars going on, both as old as dirt, and both crippling all of human kind for their lack of resolution. These two wars are first, the global war on females and secondly, the escalating class war. The men involved with Epstein were old and very rich. The girls were very young, often poor, and powerless. The Epstein case shows how both wars work together seamlessly and is carried out with impunity in the Western world.

Canadians' Role as Global Guinea Pigs

An article by Scott Wallace caught my eye in the National Observer. Scott bemoans the fact that seafood labeling in Canada is a joke. I concur, but it is much worse than Scott notes in his article. Wallace tells us that not only are seafood producers allowed to mislead customers by labeling countries where “Product of” means the place of last transformation (e.g. filleting, packaging)-but not where the seafood was caught or farmed. As Scott advised “ …if you bought sockeye salmon in Canada recently, it’s more likely from Russian waters-even if labeled “Product of Canada”. But because we don’t have a real informative labeling system for seafood in Canada, your sockeye salmon many not even be salmon at all, much less the prized “Sockeye”. It may very well be an artificial salmon called “Genetically Modified Salmon”.
Yes, it is perfectly legal to sell Genetically Modified salmon is Canada without telling the consumers of this gross infringement on nature, this thing that is not a real salmon, not even a real fish that has known qualities of evolution, but a monster that grows three times as large three times as fast as a real salmon does, and is infertile (supposedly) . This man made monster is composed of regular Pacific salmon that has had its genes spliced with those of Atlantic salmon, eels, pouts and growth hormones. And yes, this oversized monster masquerading as a real fish is being sold as we speak in the Canadian market, unlabeled and untested for human consumption over any significant period of time. Nobody, absolutely nobody, knows what eating this monstrous conglomeration in any significant amounts over any significant period of time will do to children, pregnant women, or elderly, or the broad range of human consumers. How can this be?
Alex Gillis in the McLeans article (June 2018) headlined that Canadians ate 4.5 tonnes of unlabelled GM salmon without knowing it this past year. Fancy that. We ate all that monster flesh without having the faintest idea what we were eating. And Canada is the only nation in the whole world who is putting GM salmon on the market. And that 4.5 tons of GM monster flesh was for 2018. What will this year be like? We are serving as Guinea pigs for the US Company named AquaBounty. They want to know how the dear, docile Canadians will react to eating these tons of monster flesh, which of course AquaBounty can’t label as most Canadians, no matter how nice and polite, might recoil in horror. And our Canadian watch dogs, the ones that are supposed to protect us from such dangerous company activities? Oh, dear. Gillis tells us that the Canadian government gets a ten percent cut on the sales. The more monster flesh sold to unwitting Canadians the better our government likes it. More on this.

Canada’s beef and pork chopped off China’s menu

China has halted all beef and pork exports from Canada. The reason?  A feed restrictive additive called ractopamine.  Traces of it were found in a batch of pork products by Chinese inspectors. This additive is banned in Russia, Europe and China, but of course approved in the U.S. and Canada.  Why do I say “of course”?  Because we know that the US is not averse to experimenting on its own populations with dangerous drugs and Canada more likely than not to follow the lead of the US. But upon further reading of the article I learned that the Chinese authorities had uncovered something else that deserves Canadian’s attention. The Chinese investigators also found  that the official veterinary health certificates that were attached  to the batch of pork exports were actually counterfeit, “reflecting obvious safety loop-holes in the Canada’s export system” the Chinese embassy said.

Okay, I get it. China is peeved with Canada over a number of things, the main one being the arrest and holding of Mrs. Meng Wanzhou,  the CEO of Huawei. I feel sure that if Mrs. Meng was released to return to China tout de suite things might be patched up between China and Canada and after a mild lecture on feed additives that are banned in China  and the matter of the counterfeit health certificates spoken to, trade in pork and beef could resume. But I am not satisfied with this. Especially after I read the response from the Canadian government.


Canadian’s Minister of Agriculture Marie-Claude-Bibeau acknowledged issues with the export certificates but called it a “technical issue” and maintained food exports are safe. And Justine Lesage, press secretary for Marie-Claude elaborated:  “The Canadian food and Inspection Agency (CFIA) identified an issue involving inauthentic export certificates that could affect the export of pork and beef products to China”.  I can’t believe this.  In the first place it wasn’t the CFIA who uncovered the counterfeit health certificates. It was the Chinese inspectors who found this crime.  Because I think this kind of deliberate fraud is a crime, a crime against both Chinese and Canadian citizens. But maybe this was just a one-off, right?  But no. I don’t think so. To produce inauthentic health certificates in my mind suggests a deliberate intent to commit fraud.  Otherwise, it would suggest that the employees and top brass at the packing companies can’t tell the different between China and  America. Either way, this kind of thing is not to be tolerated and makes Canada look incredibly incompetent or deliberately fraudulent.  Mari-Claude Bibeau and Justine Lesage should both be sacked immediately. And why is it that this so dangerous drug that is banned in all of Europe and Russia and China is allowed here in Canada?  Are we Canadians “Children of a lesser God?”
