Fri Jul 12, 2019, 06:44 PM

Barr's Father wrote a '74 novel (when Epstein worked with him) about being sold into 'SEX SLAVERY'?

(Ok, this is "unusual"... It has been reported that his Father was dismissed? Fired? from the academy as its headmaster a year after hiring Epstein. Thus far there is no documented indication of why...)


So, yes, I approach this with skepticism given the strong impetus to "find something" that ties Barr and/or his Father to Epstein's deplorable behaviors, but still, I find this a bit bizarre if true.
The book really is listed on Amazon, though. Nothing on Snopes.com yet so...?












???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

BTW, both William Barr and Donald Barr's wiki pages are consistent and confirm Donald Barr published two science fiction books. Very strange.

1. Oh no, too weird!!! Here's the first chapter, if you can see it:

Bill Barr’s father’s 1973 book (wen he worked with Epstein) about
space slavery... is... not great so far. But at least he dedicated it to
his wife. 🙃Will post more this weekend, but enjoy chapter 1.






????????????????????? indeed, h!!

2. The Ties That Bind Jeffrey Epstein, William Barr & Donald Trump

Todd Neikirk
Hill Reporter, May 19, 2019

During Attorney General, William Barr’s confirmation hearing, he was mostly peppered with questions about how he would handle the Mueller Report. Senator Ben Sasse’s (R-NE) questioning, however, diverged from the pack. Sasse asked Barr about the lenient sentence given out to billionaire pedophile, Jeffrey Epstein. The future Attorney General told Sasse that he would look into the matter.

This, however, was not the first connection between Barr and his family and the disgraced pedophile. In 1973, Barr’s father Donald, the headmaster at Manhattan’s Dalton School, hired Epstein as a calculus and physics teacher.

While hiring Epstein, a noted mathematics genius, was not strange on its face, the hire was unusual for a number of reasons. Epstein had not earned a college degree as he dropped out of New York’s prestigious Cooper Union. The other odd circumstance was that the new teacher was only 20 years of age.

Apparently, the hire was a successful one. The New Yorker wrote in a 2003 profile on Epstein, “he was something of a Robin Williams–in–Dead Poets Society type of figure, wowing his high-school classes with passionate mathematical riffs.” Epstein’s mathematical skills caught the eye of Bear Stearns’ chairman, Alan “Ace” Greenberg, whose son attended the Dalton School. Greenberg hired Epstein as an options trader and the former teacher was able to amass a fortune.

Continues....

Sr. Barr must’ve seen something in that young man, otherwise there’s no logical rationale for the hire or his writing.

4. If this is Bill Barr's father, he would have known to publish under a ficticious name

He wouldn't have used his real name, none of the "sleaze" writers ever do.

Just sayin'

6. OK, I just ordered a used copy on Amazon. Should be here in a few days.



That reminds me, I never did order a copy of Lynne Cheney's Sisters. I wonder if the price has come down now....

9. well, I rather doubt it will be a captivating read, though for OUR purposes, perhaps!

Fill us in when you get it.

11. I wanted to get it before all the used booksellers jacked up their prices.

Lynne Cheney's book was going for about $200 when that was in the news. Even if it had me howling with laughter, that's a little too pricey.

13. Not quite. From the Goodread's summary, it sounds more like an overdone sci-fi bodice ripper..

than anything else. And the 'hero' was sold into 'slavery' as in wasting away in alien copper mines, not sex slavery.

He wrote another with an equally overwrought description:
A Planet in Arms
by Donald Barr

A bloody star war had left the tiny planet of Rohan seething with chaos. People swarmed in violent mobs and the government rocked with turmoil. And one man, Carl ap Rhys would stop at nothing to use the confusion to seize power for himself.

Only two people could stop him, Citizen S Wells, the woman they called "the little bitch." And her trusted agent Corander, the brute of a man who loved her.

Then, on the violent penal colony of Laings Land, the revolution began. A terrifying, murderous, civil war that could bring the battered planet to ultimate peace-or devastating ruin..


There are other books listed as well:

to hire him?
