For years, Maxwell had delivered victims for sexual assault and childhood grooming to her billionaire boyfriend—proven pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
As would be expected, every major media outlet focused on the groundbreaking case. The proceedings were aired on primetime television across all cable news networks, with the entire country encouraged to tune in. Apple sent a push notification to anyone who owned one of their products, letting them know that the consequential trial was beginning and where they could watch. U.S. nighttime talk show hosts focused each evening’s programming on the unraveling mystery of how such a sick and twisted gimmick was allowed to go on, entirely with the complicit—if not active—participation of prominent members of the ruling class.
That’s because Maxwell—and the Epstein case in general—offer nothing of political advantage to the entrenched forces that currently wield power in the United States. Quite the opposite. Epstein Island is direct proof of the moral bankruptcy and generally shady nature of those we’re encouraged to regard as our U.S. aristocracy.
Claims have been made for years of widespread criminal behavior in the latter’s social circles. A few brave souls have devoted their lives to shining a light on this murky underworld. They’ve worked diligently through investigative journalism to expose the actions of these dark cliques—including the type of pedophilia that Maxwell stands convicted of enabling. Thanks to their tireless effort, as well as the rise of the internet and new forms of communication, the twisted operation on Epstein Island was finally exposed to the world.
This is embarrassing for the ruling class. In the past, those who control the media narrative have been able to sweep these types of allegations under the rug as the ramblings of conspiracy theorists. Money, power, and influence ensured that the kind of criminal behavior on Epstein Island remained under wraps from peering eyes on the outside.
“I knew him like everybody in Palm Beach knew him,” Trump told reporters in 2019.
It would instead seem that Trump came to despise Epstein for his questionable character. Unlike Clinton, Trump never made the trip to the island, and any flights he took on Epstein’s private jets occurred before Epstein’s initial conviction for soliciting a minor for prostitution.
This article isn’t meant to be a strict defense of Trump or any of his previous actions; instead, the facts stated above elucidate why the political establishment and their media enablers are attempting to “memory hole” the entire Epstein escapade.
The fact that it’s getting so little time on the airwaves should be enough to prove that there isn’t even close to enough evidence to condemn Trump—if there was, the entire corporate news world would be playing stories about it on a loop.
The prosecution of Maxwell cuts at the heart of corruption in the U.S. political establishment and criminal behavior in the elitist echelons of power and wealth in our society. As such, it’s downplayed and ridiculed. It will shortly be forgotten by the same corporate media that tells us “democracy is under attack.”
These aren’t the types of issues that our media will investigate, because they don’t actively support the causes they support. In reality, they actually work to undermine the entire facade. The dichotomy of the Maxwell case with the Jan. 6 Capitol breach show trial is a perfect example of the fact that the current political environment and its media lapdogs don’t seek to report objective facts, support constructive dialogue, or certainly not defend “democracy” and the people’s public weal.
No, instead, what it proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt, is that there’s truly only one thing that concerns those who lord power over us: desperately clinging to that power at all costs.
