About Epstein.....Stalin said it best....

(At this point, I have NO idea where I picked this up. Could have been at DU. My old head is swimming. Have you folks noticed that there are about 5 major news items a day that make you say "WTFF???" And then there's follow-ups on all of them. Information/outrage overload!! Anyway... here...)

2. Proof ?

I suggest we see what the autopsy brings out.

4. Okay. But what will ever satisfy the conspiracy theorists?

An autopsy comes out and why should anyone take it at its word? It could be just as corrupted. There could be video evidence of him hanging himself and people will still doubt it.

5. That's the way of the world unfortunately. It's where we are. I'm

expecting nothing.

What is depressing is we have until 2021 to start getting to the bottom of all that's gone on but even then there's no guarantee that the evidence will remain. I would LOVE some big wins for a change.

6. That's the problem with certainty

 

in the face of zero supporting fact. If you can convince yourself of something without any evidence then you’ve essentially declared evidence to be meaningless and easily discounted or ignored.

8. That's just it. Those who believe Trump did it will think he covered everything up.

Those who think the Clintons did it will think they covered everything up.

10. What many here don't seem to understand is that they're fueling Clinton conspiracies...

By giving credence to the doubt, it feeds the narrative and, unfortunately, much of the conspiracy world has been corrupted by anti-Clinton forces who believe they're responsible for everything. We've got dueling conspiracy theories but the one winning out right now is about Clinton - not Trump. That's the dangerous game of playing, "something doesn't add up here..."

Fuel to the “Clinton Body Count” fire, as if it needs it.

27. if i understand you correctly i must accept the official story

in order to maintain the Clintons' innocence?

being blamed by the right wing nut jobs for everything just goes with the territory for Clintons. that is just part of the yuuuge tsunami of bullshit upon which trump surfs.

i'm sorry about that. Clintons are way down on my list of suspects, but I remain skeptical about the official story.

29. Nope. You're free to believe what you want.

Just don't get upset if the larger narrative focuses on Clinton and not who you believe might be responsible. You open the door to the conspiracy and you can't start questioning what walks through. The same basic arguments being used here to tie this to Trump are literally the same arguments being used to tie this to the Clintons.

13. How many assassinations has Mosad carried off?

 

Hundreds? They are certainly on any list of suspects, if he was indeed murdered. There is also "speculation" that he did work for them. Early retirement?

Why are you lumping the 2 together????

23. The autopsy will be fixed

If they have an open casket funeral the body will be someone on which they performed plastic surgery
The video would be staged and fraudulent (and with all the stories coming out about how they are getting much better at creating fake videos, this will add further fuel to the fire)

7. I think Epstein absolutely committed suicide, BUT ...

I'd also bet money that he paid someone off to be "taken off suicide watch." He knew he had to get out of justice and it was all that he had left - that and money...

3. Not a Stalin quote.

 

That’s from Soviet writer Anatoly Rybakov.

22. That's because Rybakov attributed it

 

to him in his novel Children of the Arbat, but he later admitted that he had no source for it. By that time Rybakov’s fame had decreased so the correction did not travel as far as the original quote.

And in fairness, it sounds like something the bastard would have said, so it stuck.

26. Have no idea what really happened

But I do know it shoved the coverage of the mass shootings and gun control right off the news and for once they were gaining a bit of strength.

Thats the problem every time something gets real honest communication about it, bing the next big thing comes along and knocks it right off.
