A Behemoth in the Bedroom?
David Ashton does sex, lies and videotape
The controversy over “randy” Prince Andrew, reputedly the Queen’s favourite son, and “pervy” financier Jeffrey Epstein , might be clarified in more detail by interviewing their long-term “sassy” mutual acquaintance Ghislaine Maxwell , reputedly the favourite child of “dodgy” tycoon Robert Maxwell. An international espionage asset, the “Bouncing Czech” was larger than life – and also in death, when senior dignitaries in Jerusalem eulogised his colossal – if partly undisclosed – services .
Mr Epstein was accused of recording sexual acts by politicians and celebrities among his guests, possibly for subsequent entertainment and/or profitable “compromise” . Ms Maxwell is “also under investigation for allegedly procuring girls for Epstein [but] denies all wrongdoing” . At this time of writing, her whereabouts are unknown, although it is claimed that she is planning a televised rebuttal with a US network .
A further question is whether any intelligence agency would have an interest in such events, or even some involvement. Surveillance of important friends and foes by security services is hardly unknown, Russian “honeypot entrapments” being especially notorious .
Speculation has focused on Mossad, an organisation which operates overseas not just to protect Israel but also advance what are regarded as “Jewish interests” in general . It is said to recruit sex-workers as “swallows” rather than employ its own valued female katsas; an activity that gained religious sanction . Given its physical assassination of public enemies considered dangerous  it might be deemed equally acceptable privately to threaten character assassination of certain influential persons, for vital political leverage.
Both “left” and “right” writers have floated a “spy-camera connection”, with some plausibility .Various “links” in their long chains of “evidence”, including the reliability of defectors like Ben Menashe, the alleged roles of business-men such as Leslie Wexner or David Rowland, or the relevance of PROMIS and Carbyne911 technology, may seem shaky. The “far right” even managed to drag the Twin-Towers honcho Larry Silverstein into the saga . Nevertheless, serious questions are not actually prohibited by the extensive IHRA redefinitions of “antisemitism”, nor deterred by the label “racist” applied to Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour party, accused of threatening a vulnerable minority.
The stumbling-block with an overall Mossad organisation hypothesis is that Israeli technology is typified by efficiency and precision . However, some sort of “conspiracy theory” is no more likely to sink without trace than the progenitor “Cap’n Bob” himself .
Maligning the Monarchy may be less troublesome for journalist’s careers than mentioning Mossad. The worst “offender” at sniping at royal family members, from the Prince of Wales to the Duke of York, is the so-called “right-wing” Daily Mail . Tinseltown’s tart-magnet Harvey Weinstein , photographed at Windsor Castle with his friends Jerry and Ghislaine, can only whet media appetite for scandal. After all, it was Israeli ex-Premier Ehud Barak, whose name also came up during the Epstein frenzy , who reportedly introduced the movie mogul to “sexual history” detectives trained by – Mossad .
Babes, bigshots, bugging and blackmail? Two mysterious deaths, and their missing link? Cherchez la femme meanwhile, and leave no stone unturned.
