Lynn Forester de Rothschild

Super solid Shamir on Hong Kong:  "House Niggers Mutiny" (also comment by Unz).

"We Are Not Fooled By The Hong Kong Protests" (Zeese/Flowers).

"Beijing Launches Plans for Shenzhen to Become World Hub, in Apparent Bid to Replace Hong Kong" (Hao).  Instead of the newsworthy state violence the US and Soros are trying to create - the Chinese are actually being remarkably tolerant, even given violent provocations, remarkably more tolerant than the US itself would be in similar situations (and of course the Clintonistas continue to pretend to worry about non-existant 'Russian interference' in precious American elections) - the Chinese will just do the slow, passive-aggressive approach of rendering Hong Kong unimportant.

"The Saker Interviews Professor Marandi".  The comments are naturally immediately hasbaraited, and are a mess.

"VT Italia: Gone Too Far? Gangster Netanyahu Attacks Lebanon and Syria" (Carisio).  Also.

Election campaigning of a primitive people, the Khazars:  tweets (Ben Norton):
"The out-of-control Israeli rogue state just bombed Iraq. Israel can attack any country it wants in the region, and will never face consequences because the US protects it and blocks international action Can you imagine if Iran were bombing its neighbors?"
"Why Israel cannot be called a democratic state" (Massad).

"West Bank IED Attack Kills And Injures Israelis- A Closer Look" (Inlakesh).  "50 Palestinians shot as Israeli teen killed in explosion" (Nassar) I assume IED's, which have been a marvellous technique of de-terrorizing (aka, removing American invaders) from places like Iraq and Afghanistan, will be a marvellous technique in the next intifada, should there need to be one.

"Epstein: The Maxwell Connection" (Galloway).

The funniest thing is that this sort of operation is constantly being uncovered, yet if you point out the obvious about Epstein you are some sort of insane conspiracy theorist:  "Long Before Epstein: Sex Traffickers & Spy Agencies" (Vos) (and high quality comments).

"From “Spook Air” to the “Lolita Express”: The Genesis and Evolution of the Jeffrey Epstein-Bill Clinton Relationship" (Webb) (my emphasis in red; shockingly, Rothschild appears at least to have been born )))((():
"After Epstein’s arrests first in 2007 and then again last month, numerous media reports emerged detailing the links between Epstein and Clinton, with most asserting that they had met not long after Clinton left office in 2001 and, as recently mentioned, issued the controversial pardon of Marc Rich. 
Those reports claimed that the Epstein-Clinton relationship had been facilitated by Epstein’s long-time girlfriend and alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell. However, documents obtained from the Clinton presidential library have revealed that the ties between Epstein and Clinton date back years earlier and were facilitated by powerful individuals who have largely evaded scrutiny in connection with the Epstein case.
One major player who has been largely overlooked in bringing Epstein and the Clintons together is Lynn Forester de Rothschild. Notably, Forester de Rothschild has long been connected to neoconservative Reagan era officials — the Lewis Rosenstiel/Roy Cohn network described in Parts 1 and 2 of this series, as well as the Mega Group, which was detailed in Part 3 of this series.
Lynn Forester de Rothschild became involved in the world of Democratic Party politics in the late 1970s when she worked on the 1976 campaign of hawkish Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-NY) alongside now-notorious neoconservatives like Elliott Abrams, who would go on to play an important role in the Iran-Contra affair during the Reagan era and later serve in the State Department under Trump. She was also introduced to her second husband, Evelyn de Rothschild, by Henry Kissinger at a Bilderberg conference. Several of the individuals connected to the Mega Group and the Mossad-linked media mogul Robert Maxwell — including Mark Palmer, Max Fisher and John Lehman — were one-time aides or advisers to Henry Kissinger.
Before marrying into the Rothschild family in 2000, Lynn had previously been married to Andrew Stein, a major figure in New York Democratic politics, with whom she had two sons. Andrew’s brother, James Finkelstein, married Cathy Frank, the granddaughter of Lewis Rosenstiel, the mob-linked businessman who ran a sexual blackmail operation exploiting underage boys, as was discussed in Part 1 of this series. Rosenstiel’s protege Roy Cohn was the lawyer for Cathy Frank and James Finkelstein and it was at their behest that Cohn attempted to trick a nearly comatose Rosenstiel to into naming Cohn, Frank and Finkelstein the executors and trustees of his estate, valued at $75 million (more than $334 million in today’s dollars).
According to the New Yorker, Lynn Forester de Rothschild requested “financial help” from none other than Jeffrey Epstein in 1993 during her divorce from Andrew Stein.
As far as Forester de Rothschild’s ties to the Mega Group go, she is currently on the board of directors of Estee Lauder companies, which was founded and is still owned by the family of Ronald Lauder — a member of the Mega Group, a former Reagan official, a family friend of Roy Cohn, and the alleged source of Jeffrey Epstein’s now-infamous Austrian passport. In addition, Forester de Rothschild also partnered with Matthew Bronfman — son of Mega Group member Edgar Bronfman and grandson of Samuel Bronfman, who had close ties to Meyer Lansky — in creating the investment advisory firm Bronfman E.L. Rothschild LP.
It is unclear when Lynn Forester de Rothschild first met Jeffrey Epstein, but she was one of his leading advocates and had the ear of then-President Bill Clinton in the early 1990s, speaking to Clinton specifically about Epstein during her “fifteen seconds of access” with the president and also introducing Epstein to lawyer Alan Dershowitz in 1996.
Forester de Rothschild is a long-time associate of the Clintons and has been a major donor to both Bill and Hillary Clinton since 1992. Their ties were so close that Forester de Rothschild spent the first night of her honeymoon at the Lincoln Bedroom in the White House while Clinton was president. Furthermore, a leaked email between Forester de Rothschild and Hillary Clinton saw Clinton request “penance” from Forester de Rothschild for asking Tony Blair to accompany Clinton on official business while she was secretary of state, preventing Blair from making a planned social visit to Forester de Rothschild’s home in Aspen, Colorado. Humbly requesting forgiveness is not something Hillary Clinton is known for, given that her former bodyguard once said she could “make Richard Nixon look like Mahatma Gandhi.”
In 1995, Forester de Rothschild, then a member of Clinton’s National Information Infrastructure Advisory Council, wrote the following to then-President Clinton:
Dear Mr. President: It was a pleasure to see you recently at Senator Kennedy’s house. There was too much to discuss and too little time. Using my fifteen seconds of access to discuss Jeffrey Epstein and currency stabilization, I neglected to talk to you about a topic near and dear to my heart. Namely, affirmative action and the future.”
Forester de Rothschild then states that she had been asked to prepare a memo on behalf of George Stephanopoulos, former Clinton communications director and currently a broadcast journalist with ABC News. Stephanopoulos attended a dinner party hosted by Epstein at his now infamous Manhattan townhouse in 2010 after Epstein’s release from prison for soliciting sex from a minor.
While it is unknown what Forester de Rothschild discussed with Clinton regarding Epstein and currency stabilization, a potential lead may lie in the links of both Forester de Rothschild and Epstein to Deutsche Bank. Journalist Vicky Ward reported in 2003 that Epstein boasted of “skill at playing the currency markets ‘with very large sums of money’” and he appears to have done much of this through his long-standing relationship with Deutsche Bank. 
The New York Times reported last month
[Epstein] appears to have been doing business and trading currencies through Deutsche Bank until just a few months ago, according to two people familiar with his business activities. But as the possibility of federal charges loomed, the bank ended its client relationship with Mr. Epstein. It is not clear what the value of those accounts was at the time they were closed.”
In the case of Forester de Rothschild, she served as an advisor to the Deutsche Bank Microfinance Consortium for several years and is currently a board member of the Alfred Herrhausen Society of International Dialogue of Deutsche Bank.
The same year that Forester de Rothschild made the above-noted comments to Bill Clinton about Jeffrey Epstein, Epstein attended another Clinton fundraiser, hosted by Ron Perelman at his personal home, that was very exclusive, as the guest list included only 14 people.
Even before Forester de Rothschild’s 1995 meeting with Clinton, Epstein was already an established Clinton donor. Records obtained by the Daily Beast revealed that Epstein had donated $10,000 to the White House Historical Association and attended a Clinton donor reception alongside Ghislaine Maxwell as early as 1993.  The Daily Beast suggests that Bill Clinton’s long-time friend from his college days, A. Paul Prosperi, was the facilitator of that early relationship, as Prosperi had a decades-long relationship with Epstein and even visited Epstein at least 20 times while he was in jail in 2008. Prosperi was intimately involved with the 1993 fundraiser for the White House Historical Association noted above.
The relationship between Epstein and Clinton would continue well after Clinton left office in 2001, a fact well-documented by Bill Clinton’s now-infamous flights on Epstein’s (recently sold) private jet — often referred to as the “Lolita Express.” Clinton flew on the Lolita Express no less than 26 times in the early 2000s according to flight logs. On some of those flights, Clinton was accompanied by his Secret Service detail but he was unaccompanied on other flights. 
Arguably the most infamous flight taken by Clinton on Epstein’s jet was a lengthy trip to Africa, where actor Kevin Spacey, who has also been accused of raping minors; Ghislaine Maxwell; and Ron Burkle, a billionaire friend of Clinton’s who has been accused of soliciting the services of “super-high-end call girls,” were also present. Clinton specifically requested that Epstein make his jet available for the trip well in advance, with Doug Band as the intermediary. President Donald Trump, also a friend of Epstein, is said to have flown on the plane but appears only once on flight logs. Both Trump and Clinton were known to have visited Epstein’s private island, nicknamed “Orgy Island” and “Lolita Island.”
In addition to flights, an Epstein-run foundation gave $25,000 to the Clinton Foundation according to the 2006 filing tax return of Epstein’s former charity, the C.O.U.Q. Foundation. Notably, Epstein’s lawyers, Alan Dershowitz among them, claimed in 2007 that Epstein had been “part of the original group that conceived the Clinton Global Initiative, which is described as a project ‘bringing together a community of global leaders to devise and implement innovative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges.’”
Before the associations between Epstein and the Clinton White House in the early 1990s were made public, Ghislaine Maxwell was thought to have been the bridge between Epstein and the Clinton family because of her close relationship to the family. However, the close relationship between Maxwell and the Clintons appears to have developed in the 2000s, with Politico reporting that it began after Bill Clinton left office. Clinton associate Doug Band was also reportedly friendly to Maxwell, appearing at an exclusive dinner party she hosted at her residence in New York in 2005. Maxwell later became particularly close to Chelsea Clinton, vacationing with Chelsea in 2009 and attending her wedding a year later. Maxwell was also associated with the Clinton Global Initiative at least up until 2013.
Other close Clinton associates and officials in the early 1990s also had notable relationships with Jeffrey Epstein, including Mark Middleton, who was a special assistant to Clinton Chief of Staff Mack McClarty beginning in 1993, and met with Epstein on at least three occasions in the White House during the early Clinton years. In addition, White House social secretary under Clinton, Ann Stock, appears in Epstein’s “little black book” as does Doug Band, once referred to by New York Magazine as “Bill Clinton’s bag carrier, body man, fixer, and all-purpose gatekeeper.” Band also appears several times in the flight logs of Epstein’s private jet.
Epstein was also associated with both Bill Richardson, former ambassador to the UN and former secretary of energy under Clinton, and Larry Summers, secretary of the treasury under Clinton. Both Richardson and Summers sit on the advisory board of controversial energy company Genie Energy, alongside CIA director under Clinton, James Woolsey; Roy Cohn associate and media mogul, Rupert Murdoch; Mega Group member Michael Steinhardt; and Lord Jacob Rothschild. Genie Energy is controversial primarily for its exclusive rights to drill in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. Bill Richardson also has ties to Lynn Forester de Rothschild as she was on the Secretary of Energy’s Advisory Board while Richardson was secretary of energy. 
Bill Richardson appears to be among the Clinton era officials closest to Jeffrey Epstein, having personally visited Epstein’s New Mexico ranch and been the recipient of Epstein donations of $50,000 to his 2002 and 2006 gubernatorial campaigns. Richardson gave Epstein’s donation in 2006 to charity after allegations against Epstein were made public. Richardson was also accused in recently released court documents of engaging in sex with Epstein’s underage victims, an allegation that he has denied."
"Clinton College Pal, Alleged Co-Conspirators Visited Jeffrey Epstein in Jail" (Arciga):
"According to visitor logs cited by CNBC on Friday, Epstein was visited by Clinton college pal Arnold Paul Prosperi at least 20 times in Palm Beach County Jail while he was serving time for procuring an underage prostitute. Prosperi reportedly ran Clinton’s campaign for student body president while at Georgetown University and later went on to raise funds for him."
"Arnold Paul Prosperi":
""Mr. Prosperi was born Nov. 27, 1948, in Fort Lauderdale.
In 2001, the disbarred Palm Beach attorney made headlines when his five-year federal prison sentence was commuted to three years of house arrest by former President Bill Clinton. The former real estate attorney, who suffered from the rare autoimmune disorder called myasthenia gravis, was convicted in November 1997 of filing false tax returns and creating counterfeit securities."
-The Shiny Sheet, Palm Beach Daily News

"A former lawyer and Palm Beach society figure whose embezzlement conviction recently was commuted by former President Bill Clinton was ordered Friday to serve three years of house arrest.
U.S. District Judge Kenneth Ryskamp sentenced Arnold Paul Prosperi, an old college friend and fund-raiser for Clinton, for the charges of counterfeit securities, fraud and making false statements.
Prosperi, 52, of Hobe Sound, was indicted in 1996 for embezzling $1.8 million from a client and failing to report it on his tax returns. He had been sentenced to three years in prison for the charges when Clinton commuted his sentence in January during his final hours in office. Clinton's order limited Prosperi's punishment to three years and required it to be house arrest.
Ryskamp also ordered Prosperi to pay $125,000 in fines and more than $19,000 in court fees.
Prosperi's attorney, Thomas Puccio, said Prosperi, who suffers from a neurological disease, is seriously ill and can't afford to pay the fines.
"He has less ability to pay a fine now than years ago," Puccio said.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephen Carlton countered that Prosperi can pay because he still has the ability to work again. Fining Prosperi "is the only avenue of punishment that this court has open to it," Carlton said.
"He was nothing more than a thief with a law degree," Carlton said.
The charges against Prosperi stem from prosecutors' assertions that he ran a scheme to defraud Patrick Donovan, a senior Irish citizen who hired Prosperi as an attorney and trustee on two properties he owned. Prosperi was accused of taking money out of corporate bank accounts he controlled and depositing the money into his personal and law accounts.
Prosecutors also said Prosperi would send Donovan counterfeit monthly statements that excluded any mention of deposits into Prosperi's own accounts and falsely overstated Donovan's remaining balance."

"The Irony: US-Appointed ‘Democratic President’ of Venezuela Threatens to Boycott Early Elections".  Guido knows he can't win a fair election, so any negotiated settlement that ends in any kind of election is a complete non-starter for him.  The plan was always for him to come in as a dictator.

"Notes on Inauthenticity in a Creeping Fascist Nuthouse" (Street). The authenticity gap.  A comment at Naked Capitalism by Kurt Sperry on what amounts to the same problem in Italy.  It is interesting that the Italian left is apparently happy with endless immigration from Africa coupled with massive native Italian emmigration out of the country, Replacement Theory indeed!

Another data point for those who think that Replacement Theory is a conspiracy theory made up by the alt-right:  "Tim Wise Finds Common Ground with Alt-Right" (Durocher).  The interesting moral/political argument is whether any majority group has the right to preserve its majority.

It is pretty rich when the people who constantly justify their outrageous crimes against humanity by trading on alleged connections to the Holocaust suddenly get persnickety about the use of the term 'child of Holocaust survivors':  "‘Playing the Child of Holocaust Survivors card’ in the Canadian wine dispute" (Kattenburg).

We're not supposed to notice that the liberation of parts of Syria from the Zionist/Assholian/Wahhabist curse of terrorism is creating considerable joy:  "SYRIA: Towns in Hama celebrate SAA victory against international terrorism" (Beeley). It is still absolutely amazing that the (((media))) continues to get away with claiming that completely necessary de-terrorization required as a result of Zionist conspiracies is some kind of human rights issue.

'Journalism':  "BBC Admits ‘Syrian’ Airstrike in Recent Story on Scarred Boy Turned Out to Be Turkish".  A small but classic example of how they work their lies.

"“Jewface” Rampant: Jewry has Been Infiltrated by Neo-Nazis" (Frei)!:
"The neo-Nazis have infiltrated the media, pretending to be Jews; they write columns for every major newspaper; they have formed notionally Jewish organizations and claim to speak in our name. From positions in the public eye, they advocate controversial policies designed to stir up hatred against Jews. By arguing for open borders immigration, by stigmatizing normal family structures, healthy heterosexual relationships and the natural pride of the majority population in the achievements of their European ancestors, these fake Jews are trying to bring down the wrath of the Goyim upon us!
What other explanation can there be?
The organizations that claim to represent us are, in fact, secretly scheming against us. Look at the so-called Anti-Defamation League that purports to speak for Jews when attaching its name to every far-left, fringe, anti-free-speech, anti-white position in the political spectrum! “Jonathan Greenblatt,” the so-called Jew who heads up this sinister outfit, is an obvious neo-Nazi who wants to stir up the hatred of whites against us! Does anyone in their right mind believe that ordinary, decent Jews would select as their champion an organization explicitly founded to a defend a convicted rapist and murderer, an organization whose very name attacks the core American value of free speech, an organization whose secret purpose can only be to defame and discredit Jews?
But the strategy may have been in effect for much longer, perhaps for hundreds or thousands of years. The Amalekites, for I believe it is they, have been masquerading as their mortal enemies, we Jews, engaging in every manner of outrageous and provocative behavior calculated to inspire ill feeling against us!
In the early 20th century, these pseudo-Jews posing as Communists, massacred millions of innocent Gentiles, stirring up the hatred of the world against the Jew and conjuring forth the Evil One who murdered 6 billion of us in his Camps (as you know I was in 18 different camps and 7 different gas chambers, only escaping because the inefficient Germans ran out of gas!) In the 7th century, the fake Jews took the Persian side against the Christians; in the 8th, they let the Muslims into Spain; and in the centuries to come, they betrayed Greek Christians to the Ottomans! The hatred of the Amalekites has tracked us through the ages, as they practiced treachery, usury and ritual murder, all in a bid to discredit the Jew! Their scheming has now made the very name of “Jew” a byword and a reproach! When will their hatred end?"
