Another Trump Cabinet member tied to Epstein: MNUCHIN



Seems to be a pattern: Epstein-Trump-Barr-Acosta and now Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin.



Steven Mnuchin’s Mysterious Link to Creepy Epstein Model Scout

The Treasury secretary’s name shows up on official records for a company formed in the 1980s by Jeffrey Epstein’s close friend, the model scout Jean-Luc Brunel.

In the late 1980s—before he was a member of Donald Trump’s Cabinet, or even a high-rolling hedge-fund manager—Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin served in an official capacity for a business run by one of Jeffrey Epstein’s most infamous associates.

In official records, Mnuchin is listed as the official state point of contact for Next Management Corporation, a company formed in 1988 by modeling-industry insiders Jean-Luc Brunel and Arnaud Brunel. At the time, Jean-Luc Brunel had just been the subject of a 60 Minutes documentary accusing him of drugging and raping at least three models. Later, he would be accused by two women of supplying girls to Epstein to be sexually abused. (Brunel has denied the allegations.)

Records accessed by The Daily Beast list Mnuchin as the New York Department of State process for Next Management Corporation. According to department officials, the DOS process is the person who files a company’s registration papers and receives lawsuits and other official documents on their behalf—usually a lawyer or some other legal representative.

Snip...

Mnuchin’s office did confirm that he was longtime friends with Faith Kates, the owner of the Next modeling agency. The Brunel brothers co-founded the Next agency with Kates in 1989, and their company, Next Management Corp., owned a 25 percent stake in the agency for several years. The address listed under Mnuchin’s name in the state department records is the first address for Kates’ company, Next Management Company.

Gee. When it comes to the sexual exploitation of minors, it really is a small world.

3. What Creature?



Bill Barr, Capitalism’s Invisible Army.



Bill Barr: The “Cover-Up General”

"At the center of the criticism is the chief artic­ulator of Bush's imperial presidency," we reported in 1992, "the man who wrote the legal rationale for the Gulf War, the Panama invasion, and the officially sanctioned kidnapping of foreign nationals abroad"


by FRANK SNEPP
The Village Voice, APRIL 18, 2019

Snip...

For the next two years, as chief of the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Coun­sel, Barr played a key role in shaping Rich­ard Thornburgh’s stormy tenure as attorney general. In a job that was essentially politi­cal, he helped maintain the administra­tion’s ideological purity by screening out judicial candidates who weren’t conserva­tive enough. He also drafted two key docu­ments rationalizing the U.S. invasion of Panama and the seizure of General Manuel Noriega.

Snip...

In mid 1990, as Thornburgh’s own prob­lems with Congress deepened, Barr was tapped to run interference, and was named deputy attorney general. The appointment came just in time for him to draft another landmark tract for the administration, the legal pretext for the undeclared war against Iraq. It would have made any Nixonite proud. Explaining it later to Congress, Barr said he believed there was a “gray zone” between a declared offensive war and an emergency defensive action where “there is latitude for the president, if he believes that the vital interests of the United States are threatened by foreign military attack, there is room for him to respond.”

Barr did not make clear how the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait equaled an attack on vital American interests, but to his credit, at the moment of decision itself, he did counsel the president to soften the impact of his unilateral rush to war by seeking a declaration of congressional support. That piece of advice, much akin to Johnson’s leveraging of the Tonkin Gulf resolution, helped to keep the naysayers at bay.

Barr’s service to the administration, how­ever, wasn’t limited simply to such flashes of political savvy. In 1991 he became active in stone-walling the Iraqgate and the BCCI investigations and further gratified conser­vatives by keeping up the tattoo on their favorite hot-button issues. Embracing im­migration policy as his own, he helped craft an exception rule that automatically barred HIV-positive sufferers from entering the country. Civil libertarians charged illegal discrimination and even racism, since many of those excluded were black Hai­tians. Barr assured Congress that the policy was meant only to keep out people who might be thrown back on public welfare.

Flogging another conservative hobby­horse, Barr fought hard as deputy AG to keep federal courts from expanding their right to review state criminal convictions on writs of habeas corpus. As a devout Catholic, he also pandered to the antiabor­tion crowd, even “torquing” the law in Au­gust 1991 to advance their crusade. The challenge came when a federal judge in Wichita issued an order barring anti-abor­tion demonstrators from blocking access to a clinic. The Justice Department inter­vened to try to force a lifting of the ban. Later asked about this by Congress, Barr gave an exquisitely technical rationale, as­serting that though the demonstrators were “lawbreakers . . . treading on other people’s rights,” they “should be dealt with” in state court, not federal court — thus the federal judge’s order was unenforceable.

The background and analysis it provides shows why Barr and Co are corrupt — and to whom they answer.

I post it as often as possible on the various threads which touch on Barr.

Please feel free to turn it into an OP or use when needed. Apply truth liberally.

the vastness of the human/sex trafficking cabal that has many members in our government, including at the state level. I figured this out over a year ago and I am sure there are so many involved that it will make heads spin around the globe.

4. Barr's dad -- intel background -- hired unqualified Epstein at The Dalton School.

Plugged Epstein into the system in which he excelled.



In his 1973 science fiction book ‘Space Relations: A slightly gothic interplanetary tale,’ Barr wrote about a future where after “…galaxies are colonized, John Craig, a young space diplomat, is captured by interplanetary pirates and sold into slavery.” The blub for the book reads, that on the planet Kossar, “boredom and absolute power have driven the rulers to a special kind of madness,” and Craig is captured and sold into slavery until he’s bought by “the exquisite lady Morgan Sydney, a beautiful, sensual woman. He soon makes his way from the hellish slavery into her bed in the tower of her castle.”

The only way to beat these crooks — and their offspring — is expose them to scrutiny.

5. Those in office

have a large protection industry to hide behind. If there are "members" in every level of government, they can keep their dark world spinning like a top. The best way is to not only expose them but rise up against them. These are the same fuckwads who hate women and legislate against women at every opportunity because they see women only as sex-servants and breeders. What matters most to them is the power to rape whomever they chose to satisfy their sexual desires. Really, that's what it boils down to.

They need to be exposed, removed from any kind of power over others and isolated from the rest of us.

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.

Former OSS and who knows what Barr Sr must’ve seen something in young Epstein as a potential world-class pimp and blackmail artiste, otherwise there’s no logical rationale for the hire.

12. Where's Rudy Giuliani when you need one?

Rudy Giuliani when Epstein was alive:

“If you spent this much time with him and he was so involved with these underaged girls — who did you see him with and what was he doing and what did he tell you and what did he say to you and how could you have missed it,” he told Hill.TV. “Maybe some were innocent — maybe some weren’t, but I think they’re going to investigate everybody.”

Source: https://thehill.com/hilltv/rising/454141-rudy-giuliani-warns-epstein-case-could-implicate-a-lot-of-people

Now that Epstein is deceased:

"I don't understand how anyone can explain not having him under 24-hour surveillance or not checking the camera constantly... The camera wasn't working. There's a camera in every part of a prison. Every single telephone call in and out of prison is listened to. Prisons are prisons. Now the federal prison system, I used to be in charge of it in the Reagan administration and then I worked with it for 15 years... The federal prison system is the best in the world... It's hard for me to believe this could possibly happen."

15. It's GOP wide.

Federal Judge Marra (appointed by Smirko W Bush) yesterday ruled in favor of Alexander Acosta and the departed Epstein.



Federal judge: Epstein’s death dashes women’s hopes to toss secret pact

U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra said Epstein’s death means he can’t throw out a once-secret agreement that allowed the 66-year-old financier to escape federal prosecution.

by Jane Musgrave
Palm Beach Daily Post, Sept. 16, 2019

WEST PALM BEACH — When convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein killed himself in a New York City jail cell last month, a lawsuit his victims filed to expose federal prosecutors’ mishandling of his case died with him, a federal judge ruled Monday.

In a 15-page order, U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra said Epstein’s death means he can’t throw out a once-secret agreement that allowed the 66-year-old financier to escape federal prosecution for sexually abusing dozens of teenage girls at his Palm Beach mansion.

“As a result of Mr. Epstein’s death, there can be no criminal prosecution against him and the Court cannot consider granting this relief to the victims,” Marra wrote.

Further, while the controversial non-prosecution agreement also gave immunity to four women and unnamed others who helped the politically-connected millionaire recruit, groom or use teens for sex, Marra said he can’t waive the protection they received.

So. Who CAN waive the protection of child sex traffickers?
