Jeffrey Epstein’s Calendar Shows Overall Acceptance of Debauchery By the Elite
Contrary to what the poets may paint about the world, love does not make this blue orb called Earth go ’round. Instead, money is the fuel that powers our monstrous machine, and where that money comes from matters little to those who wish to carve out their piece of the pie.
One of the most prominent players in this game was the mighty and influential Jeffrey Epstein. While some mysteries surrounding this profoundly sinister man may never be solved, we have some new information that shines a light on how accepting those in power are of convicted child sexual predators.
Thanks to the Wall Street Journal, we now have some insight into the daily meetings between Epstein and the big names of politics, finance, and other industries of importance. So let’s look at who found time to pencil the most controversial and mysterious man of sexual depravity into their calendars.
Why did the head of the CIA meet with Epstein AFTER he was a convicted sex offender?
You know why.

Epstein’s calendar was quite illuminating, even with its inherent limitations. For example, the calendar didn’t show if meetings did happen or if they had been canceled, and the entries were vague on purpose.
However, what we do know is that some liberal bigwigs certainly enjoyed the audience of Epstein regularly enough to raise eyebrows. For example, take the current Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Director, William Burns.
President Joe Biden nominated William Burns for his current position as head spook of the nation, but before then, he had met with Epstein multiple times in Washington D.C and at Epstein’s home in Manhattan, New York. At the time, Mr. Burns was the deputy secretary of state but was allegedly looking for tips on transitioning out of the government sector.
Who better to ask than one of the country’s most connected and wealthy men?
When questioned about his relationship with Epstein, CIA spokeswoman Tammy Thorp said:
“The director did not know anything about him, other than that he was introduced as an expert in the financial services sector and offered general advice on transition to the private sector.”
It’s hard to believe that Mr. Burns, a highly connected man already, knew nothing about the famous pedophile, given his widely covered conviction of a child sex crime in 2008, well before his scheduled meetings. So either Mr. Burns was woefully uninformed or is lying – either option is pretty terrible.

Not 1. Not 2. But 3 times.

In addition to Mr. Burns, Epstein frequently met with Obama administration lawyer Kathryn Ruemmler. After meeting with Epstein up to a dozen times, Ms. Ruemmler landed a big-time job with Goldman Sachs – I think it’s fair to assume her buddy Epstein probably had a hand in that employment.
Fascinatingly, Ms. Ruemmler didn’t just have scheduled meetings with Epstein; he had planned for her to travel to Paris with him in 2015 and to his famous private Caribbean island in 2017. While it appears she never made those trips, if I were Ms. Ruemmler, I’d be mortified to have that information come out.
In a tasty bit of irony, Ms. Ruemmler is Goldman Sachs’s reputational risk committee co-chair. So what does this committee do?
It’s in charge of ensuring decisions related to employees of Goldman Sachs and their clients won’t damage the bank’s image. But I suppose Ms. Ruemmler’s prior relationship with a convicted sex offender isn’t going to affect Goldman Sachs’s image; once you reach a certain level of power, you’re basically Teflon.
So what excuses did people give for meeting with a man who had been convicted of procuring a child for prostitution? I mean, the guy was rich; what else do you need?
With the news today that Jeffrey Epstein met with Joe Biden’s current CIA Chief, William Burns, after his child sex crime convictions, it’s important to also remember that when Epstein was serving his first jail sentence, which started in 2006, he sent his bodyguard to CIA… pic.twitter.com/sLZevDkOZ0

Explaining It Away
Many of those on the calendar told the Wall Street Journal that they visited Epstein because he was rich and had connections. So much for principles.
If someone has enough money and an extensive enough Rolodex, the elites of this country are more than happy to sell their souls to the devil. Others claimed that Epstein had served his time and been rehabilitated for his evil ways.
Because child sex offenders and predators are well known for their ability to turn a new page.
Another calendar entry, for the famous left-wing political activist Noam Chomsky, was excused away with the following:
“What was known about Jeffrey Epstein was that he had been convicted of a crime and had served his sentence. According to U.S. laws and norms, that yields a clean slate.”
The crime Mr. Chomsky alludes to is the accusation Epstein faced in 2006 and was later convicted of sexually abusing girls as young as 14 in Florida. So it’s not as if Epstein was convicted of petty theft or a financial crime wrongly viewed as victimless.
However, Mr. Chomsky is correct; if you are powerful enough in this country, you get a clean slate no matter your crime. On the flip side, if you don’t fit into the political class that wields the most influence according to U.S. norms you are guilty even when there is no proof.
In case you haven't figured it out, Epstein was a CIA asset. The rest of the story is rather pedestrian but crucial to understanding the last 3 years if not the last 10. or more. pic.twitter.com/aId1viDVXG

The Epstein Curse
Epstein’s influence is more comprehensive than perhaps anyone else in this country, even after his alleged suicide. I’d argue that you could probably do a similar game of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon but call it Three Degrees of Jeffrey Epstein.
Epstein rubbed elbows with all sorts of bigwigs from Bill Gates, Prince Andrew, Donald Trump, and of course, the master of sleaze himself – Bill Clinton. Epstein clocked in a total of 17 visits to the White House between 1993 and 1995.
Recently top Clinton adviser Mark Middleton was found dead, hanging from a tree with an electrical cord tied around his throat. Bizarrely though, a shotgun was found 30 feet away from the swinging Middleton.
Could it be that Mr. Middleton’s death had something to do with the fact that he had signed Epstein into the White House three times during the Clinton administration? If I were Mr. Burns or Ms. Ruemmler, I’d avoid any overhead structures that can withstand their weight.
Will the curse of Epstein strike again now that his calendar is out? We shall have to see.
One thing is clear, we may never know who participated in Epstein’s illegal activity, but we do know that the well-to-do of this nation are willing to meet with anyone – provided they can personally benefit from it.
The central question remains:
Was Jeffrey Epstein a *construct* of the intelligence community, who as state sponsored predator cannot be investigated by news media cooperating with government for “reasons of national security.”
