Seven Days In May - Lawyers, Guns & Money Everybody who had anything to do with Epstein knew what he was doing with young girls, Davidson says. Bill Clinton. Bill Gates. Major universities whitewashed Epstein for pay.
I wrote something provocative about how I know stuff about Jeffrey Epstein and cant publish it.Ill do my best to explain and reveal here. It provides, I think, a good lesson in why it is hard to publish stories about bad things done by the rich and powerful: ... Epstein reportedly raped up to 3 girls a day for years. Most came once or just a few times. Their names are not known by anyone. Thats thousands of victims who are invisible. (hello, Pevan Stinker)
Elite institutions--like some universities, museums, other nonprofits--sell a product to disgraced men: reputation recovery. They call it the Halo effect.In Jeffrey Epsteins case it was more awful. It was a central piece in his grooming apparatus ... Bill Gates is the best: he needed Epstein to help him find rich donors? Who would Epstein have access to that Gates wouldnt? ... MIT, Harvard, Interlochen, Edge sold something of enormous value to Epstein, something only they could offer.

Something has happened at The Washington Post over the last few days that is so bizarre and petty, its hard for me to explain it to people who dont work in journalism without sounding nuts

Mass shooters overwhelmingly fit a certain profile, say Jillian Peterson and James Densley, which means its possible to ID and treat them before they commit violence ... Early childhood trauma seems to be the foundation, whether violence in the home, sexual assault, parental suicides, extreme bullying. Then you see the build toward hopelessness, despair, isolation, self-loathing, oftentimes rejection from peers. That turns into a really identifiable crisis point where theyre acting differently. Sometimes they have previous suicide attempts ... I dont think most people realize that these are suicides, in addition to homicides. Mass shooters design these to be their final acts. When you realize this, it completely flips the idea that someone with a gun on the scene is going to deter this. If anything, thats an incentive for these individuals. They are going in to be killed.

Erik Visits an American Grave, Part 1,110 : This is the grave of Saul Bellow ... Bellow was running about one wife per novel there for awhile and was married five times. By few accounts was this a man easy to live with and this was also a period where the Artist was given plenty of leeway to not be a great person to those around him, which has mercifully been pushed back against in the last twenty years or so. One of his wives was Alexandra Ionescu-Tulcea, the famous mathematician who still lives today. They were married from 1974-85. Naturally, he was 20 years older than she ... Unfortunately, as he aged, Bellow turned sharply conservative, a trait he passed on to his idiot son Adam who makes John Podhoretz look like he earned his spot in the right-wing intellectual universe Bellow was one of those guys who the late 60s and 70s broke. He hated feminism. He hated multiculturalism. He hated affirmative action. He became quite racist toward cultures that had not produced Great Novelists such as himself
