So cool that Epstein has fake passport, so sad it was discovered

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/jeffrey-epstein-had-cash-diamonds-foreign-passport-stashed-safe-prosecutors-n1029851

Whenever a really rich guy is caught, I always ask, “why didn’t he have a plan to flee the country?”

Well it looks like Epstein DID have such a plan, but the FBI found it. Hopefully he has another secret cache of money and a fake passport somewhere else that the feds don’t know about.

  1. This makes it even less likely that he’s getting bail.

  2. Why is it cool and why is it sad?

    “The passport was issued in the name of a foreign country, it was issued in the 1980s, it is expired, it shows a picture of Jeffrey Epstein, and another name,” Rossmiller said, adding the passport showed Epstein’s residence as Saudi Arabia.”

    What the fuck does this mean? If it showed Epstein’s residence as Saudi Arabia then the passport was Saudi Arabian, right? Why do they call it a foreign country. Why don’t they specify that it’s Saudi Arabia?

      They let NYT columnist Tom Friedman visit because he acts like a dhimmi.

    • From Wiki

      Barring people with either Israeli passports or Israeli stamps in their passport from visiting Saudi Arabia, has been a long-established practice.[3] When in February 2004, Saudi Arabia started issuing visas to non-Muslims for the first time, in order to attract more foreign visitors, the website of the Saudi Arabian Supreme Commission for Tourism initially stated that Jews would not be granted tourist visas to enter the country.[4][5] The discriminatory stipulation was widely reported and drew strong criticism, renewing the notion of Saudi Arabia being a “backward country”.[3] Subsequently, the Saudi embassy in the U.S. distanced itself from the statement, apologizing for posting “erroneous information”, which was later removed.[6][7]

      Members of religions other than Islam, including Jews, are not permitted to practice their religion publicly in Saudi Arabia; according to the U.S. State Department,[8] religious freedom “does not exist” in Saudi Arabia. Islam is the official religion of Saudi Arabia, and the tenets of that religion are enforced by law.[9]

    • I am completely baffled by lion’s attitude toward this story. He said Acosta got metooed. This isn’t a metoo story. There is hard physical evidence against epstein including his own handwritten notes concerning the girls that he was dumb enough to put in his trash unshredded.

      Either he thinks it’s fine for old dudes like himself to sleep with underaged girls (hey Mohammed did it) or he’s trolling.

      • I don’t know what you’re talking about. I generally doubt that teenage girls selling themselves to Epstein’s group were being watched over by caring fathers, and uncaring fathers abdicate their right to beat up men who do questionable things with their daughters. That is the subject of the comment to which we are replying.

        He didn’t violate the teenage girls’ rights by paying them to have a sex party; he violated the parents’ rights. But the parents abdicated their rights by not caring.

    • Exactly. I no longer trust the government about these things. Remember when they told us that Maria Butina was a honeypot spy / prostitute because of a text message joke she sent? This “passport” may just be a gag gift from a friend. Who knows?

      Take a lesson from the “bombshells” we heard every day during the Russian Collusion investigation. They were all bullshit, but people ate them up.

  7. Jeffrey Epstein is like a Ted Bundy De-Lite. You know, the guy without the teeth or killing instinct of Ted Bundy when it comes to women. It’s interesting that Ted Bundy was a liberal arts major in Chinese and then he graduated with a Psychology Degree. His life was marred with a frivolous pursuit of women, and he had low future time orientation like many wavering sociopaths, who can’t hold on a steady job or a goal.

    Is there a correlation with men who have low future time orientation and womanizing behavior? Jeffrey Epstein fits this profile.

    Ok, what, who's this again?

    July 15, 2019 at EDT pm

    • Bundy killed total strangers. He would try to lure them into his car. One woman who got away said he pretended to be injured. For some reason or other she got suspicious.

      After he escaped from prison and fled to Florida, he broke into a woman’s dorm and killed at least one that way. I can’t quite recall the details.

      In Epstein’s case, how did he find the underage girls in the first place?

      Frau Katze

      July 16, 2019 at EDT am

      • “In Epstein’s case, how did he find the underage girls in the first place?”

        Once he found the first, he got her to recruit her friends, the deal was vastly more money than they could ever make at a real job, plus getting to fly in private planes, going to parties at mansions they would never otherwise have access to, etc.

  8. Epstein was arrested at teterboro airport in NJ, having flown in from paris. He obviously didn’t know the hammer was about to come down, indicating that the feds were quite serious about actually putting him away this time, for whatever reason that may be. If he had advance knowledge it stands to reason he would’ve remained overseas, and at the very least attempted to begin a months long process of fighting extradition.

    • Paris? Didn’t France (or was Switzerland) that refused to an extradition request for Roman Polanski? I think he’s still there. The girl was quite young in that case (past puberty but not by much). I read that she stated that she didn’t particularly want him put away.

      Frau Katze

      July 16, 2019 at EDT am

      • The girl was 13. And it’s not so much that she didn’t want him put away. It’s that she didn’t think that, at his current age, he should spend the rest of his life in prison for something he’d done decades earlier. She was showing him more compassion than he’d shown her. I think her compassion was misplaced. If it were up to me he’d be executed. And the same goes for Epstein and anyone who defends him.

      • @Mike Street, @destructure Yes, Asians are generally a different race (Asia is pretty big though. Iranians, for example, are likely “white” but I think that being from an exotic different religion makes them POC.)

        The natives in the Caribbean were hit very hard by the Old World diseases. They couldn’t escape the Europeans. So if Puerto Rico has current day natives, there can’t be many. I read her Wiki and her parents aren’t low class. She looks southern European.

        We have lots of natives where I live and they’re darker than her.

Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done.

      • “Rest were born in the US. So obviously he implies if you are poc you cannot be “American”.”

        No, the obvious implication is that if you are first generation American and want nothing more than to change the culture you apparently haven’t assimilated and should return to your ethnic homeland.

        Not every relocation is going to work out, and not every ethnic group is going to fit well in the US. If you are neither part of America’s ethnic majority AND you are unhappy with the culture this probably isn’t the place for you. Better you return to your ethnic homeland than pollute the culture with your screeds against the ethnic majority.

        I bet each of these women have much deeper roots elsewhere. They should return to places where the cultural fit is better rather than attempting to change the US.

  15. The Lion sort of identifies with Epstein the way people who watch movies often identify with Dracula or Darth Vader or whatever powerful exciting villain heads the movie and makes it a good movie. Dracula and Darth Vader are more interesting than Johnathan Harker or Han Solo in the first place, and the Lion feels like an outsider who has been screwed by society, and is kind of a snob, so would identify with hermit-like geniuses whom society is against, like Dracula and Vader. Epstein is kind of like Dracula or Vader, a smart guy whom society is against who is more interesting than those hunting him down.

    Dracula and Darth Vader are the first that come to my mind, but people who know more about pop culture can probably think of many others; maybe Fu Manchu? Who even remembers the name of the English guy who fights Fu Manchu? From real life Napoleon and Caesar are probably more popular than Wellington and Cato.
