FOLLOW THE GREEN: THE EPSTEIN – GREENBERG CONNECTION

Exposing Epstein's small part in a MUCH LARGER criminal syndicate that extends beyond honeypot schemes to bank fraud, money laundering, drug/ gun trafficking and MUCH MORE.

2 Let’s travel in time back to the mid 1970’s.

Epstein dropped out of Cooper Union and NYU’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences before finding a job teaching calculus and physics at the Dalton School in the mid-1970s.

nymag.com/intelligencer/…
3 By way of introduction from the Elitist Dalton school, from 1976 to 1980 Epstein worked as an options trader for ‘Ace’ Greenberg at Bear Stearns, the firm destined to become a signal icon for the US financial crash of 2008-2009.
vanityfair.com/news/2003/03/j…
4 Epstein tutored Ace Greenberg's son & dated his daughter, Lynne, which was the reason for Epstein’s climb into Bear Stearns. Under the mentorship of both Greenberg & James Cayne, he did well enough to become a limited partner-a rung beneath full partner

5 Ace’s ‘golden boy’ Epstein worked on “extremely complex tax-related problems for a ‘select group’ of Bear Stearns’ wealthiest clients – elite within the elite – including Seagram CEO Edgar Bronfman."

6 How does a school teacher become the protege of the head of the 5th largest US securities firm, rising to limited partner in 4 years and in charge of running numbers for their ‘elite of the elite’ clients? And WHO, other than Bronfman, were Epstein’s clients at Bear Stearns?
7 His client list is so secretive we can only speculate, but the ‘elite of the elite’ circle is small. According to Vicky Ward, a few friends say he was a “bounty hunter,” recovering money for govts or rich people , including arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi.

8 Considering Ace Greenberg & James Cayne were members of an elite group of bankers known as Kappa Beta Phi, having someone like Epstein run numbers for their ‘elite’ friends seems apropos. The secret group reminiscent of Masons & Bilderbergs meets yearly
zerohedge.com/news/2014-02-1…
9 Aside from Greenberg’s connection to Kappa Beta Phi, Epstein’s benefactor had deep ties to Israel & gave millions to the United Jewish Appeal. “His generosity was very known,” said Solomon COO of UJA & Pres of Andrea & Charles BRONFMAN Philanthropies.

jewishweek.timesofisrael.com/federations-ac…
10 It’s CRITICALLY important to put the time in context. Between 76-80 Epstein managed the finances for the “elite of the elite” such as Bronfman & other likely shady characters. From 76-77 GHW Bush was Director of the CIA & 77-79 Director of the CFR.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_H.…
11 During the late 70’s through the 80’s the CIA worked with Mossad on a MASSIVE gun-running and drug-trafficking operation, that only after it was exposed in the mid 80's became known as the Iran-Contra Affair.
12 “What if a criminal cabal took over the US Government and used its operations for its own profit? Before they stole the WH, the Bush family was the First Family of Fraud."

scribd.com/document/32620…
13 "According to a self-described 4th level player of Iran Contra, Al Martin, has 1st hand knowledge of US government drug trafficking, illegal weapons deals, as well as wholesale fraud by government perps.”

scribd.com/document/32620…
14 When Iran Contra finally fell apart, they had ended up making $350 billion, according to whistleblower, Al Martin. The billions were allegedly laundered through financial institutions such as BCCI, Bear Stearns, Deutche Bank and AIG.

scribd.com/document/32620…
15 Word of the Iran Contra scandal hit in 87 & who was it that brokered the arms deal? Adnan Khashoggi, Epstein's client. In 88 Khashoggi was arrested, accused of concealing funds. He was extradited to the US for racketeering & fraud, but later cleared.

google.com/amp/s/www.theg…
16 Many key figures in the same network & several fronts for the CIA that were involved in funneling money to the Contra paramilitaries were also trafficking minors for their sexual exploitation & blackmail rings.

eastcountymagazine.org/book-review-fr…
17 A few rings made headlines: the “call boy ring” run by Craig Spence, the Franklin child-sex ring run by Larry King & the Catholic Covenant House. Epstein is the latest scandal in a long line of honeypots from the same syndicate.
nypost.com/2018/09/13/thi…
apnews.com/b23c2d81176c8d…
18 Was Bear Stearns involved in laundering the Iran Contra billions? Were some of Epstein’s “elite of the elite” clients at Bear Stearns involved in the Iran Contra affair? We may never know.
19 We do know that Epstein’s client, Adnan Khashoggi, was involved in Iran Contra & later involved in an arms trade fraud case involving Deutsche Bank, as well as a money laundering scam.

20 Meanwhile, at the height of the drug and gun trafficking black ops known as Operation “Black Eagle” aka Iran Contra, Epstein ran into some trouble involving one of his “elite of the elite” clients at Bear Stearns.
21 The deal involving Epstein through Bear Stearns on behalf of Edgar Bronfman prompted an SEC investigation for insider trading, which ultimately led to Epstein’s immediate resignation with a mere slap on the wrist.

books.google.com/books?id=zOH-C…
22 According to Steven Jude Hoffenberg, Epstein confided in him that he had left Bear Stearns in 1981 after he was discovered executing “illegal operations.”

vanityfair.com/news/2003/03/j…
23 After he left Bear Stearns in 1981 to set up J. Epstein & Co., “he remained close to Cayne and Greenberg and was a client until Bear Stearns’ demise.”

bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
24 We also know that after leaving Bear Stearns (likely taking some of his shady “elite of the elite” clients with him), Epstein took on another mentor – Steven Jude Hoffenberg.

thedailybeast.com/did-jeffrey-ep…
25 According to SEC docs Epstein has good reason to keep his past a secret: his mentor - Steven Jude Hoffenberg was incarcerated serving a 20 yr sentence for bilking investors out of more than $450M in one of the largest Ponzi schemes in US history

thedailybeast.com/did-jeffrey-ep…
26 He claims Epstein is a Ponzi schemer who helped him bilk 1000s of investors in the 80s - 90s. “Epstein & his corporations were my co-conspirators,” Hoffenberg alleged in an affidavit for a federal lawsuit.

thedailybeast.com/did-jeffrey-ep…
27 Epstein denied allegations of his association with Hoffenberg’s $450M Ponzi scheme, one of the largest in US history, and again walked away from a financial scandal unscathed.
28 A Ponzi scheme has been floated as a source of Epstein’s wealth when multiple red flags point to fraud. The secrecy of his client list, the absolute control over investors’ money & the $1 billion basement investment required — all point to Ponzi.

nymag.com/intelligencer/…
29 Since the 90s, J. Epstein & Co has been incorporated in the Virgin Islands and is now called Financial Trust Co. with its only known client as billionaire retail giant and co-founder of the Mega Group with major ties to Isreal / Mossad, Les Wexner.

bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
30 With a home in Palm Beach FL & Financial Trust Co. off shore in the Virgin Islands, Epstein continued his operations in the same vicinity as the CIA / Mossad drug & gun running black ops uncovered through Iran Contra affair, which likely continued operations in the shadows.
31 Black operations continued on beyond the Florida area and into Mena Arkansas, according to whistleblower, Terry Reed, who co-authored the book "Compromised Clinton Bush and the CIA".

deeppoliticsforum.com/forums/showthr…

idfiles.com/menacoverup.htm
32 According to Reed, the CIA had the run of the state as if it were a banana republic, under the governorship of Bill Clinton. He claims that Clinton and others engaged in a massive conspiracy to smuggle cocaine, export weapons and launder money out of Mena, Arkansas.
33 “The CIA could do what they wanted without any interference as long as Clinton and the State got their cut (10%).”

deeppoliticsforum.com/forums/showthr…
34 $100M/ month in drug trafficking money out of Mena, AR was funneled from Bill Clinton’s project AFDA to be laundered. A large portion was shipped to BCCI in FL. One of its 2 holding companies was in the Cayman Islands -the same stomping grounds as Epstein's Financial Trust Co.
35 Larry Nichols speaks about his first hand knowledge of the drug running operation through AFDA out of Mena Arkansas. $100M per month shipped cross country, some to FL/ Cayman Islands for laundering.

corbettreport.com/episode-232-ai…
36 BCCI had accounts for Saddam Hussein, Noriega, Medellin Cartel. The CIA “held ‘several’ accounts as well. It was known as “Bank of Crooks & Criminals International” for its penchant for catering to customers who dealt in arms, drugs & hot money.”

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bank_of_C…
37 Clinton’s AFDA became the subject of investigation after a shady $60M deal involving AIG, known as the Coral Re project. AIG founded Coral Re. Its alleged that the company name came from Coral Baca, wife of a Medellin warlord.

corbettreport.com/episode-232-ai…
copvcia.com/free/ciadrugs/…
38 Coral Baca presented herself as ‘legal counsel’ for AIG regardless of the fact that she had no legal background. The Coral Re deal clearly appeared to be a case of laundering drug money through AIG.

corbettreport.com/episode-232-ai…

39 This leads us to Maurice “Hank” Greenberg, president of AIG at the time, a candidate in 1995 to become Director of the CIA, vice chairman and director of the Council on Foreign Relations, and director of the Fed Reserve Bank of NY.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maurice_R…
40 Iran-Contra whistleblower, Al Martin, claims that Epstein’s first mentor - Ace Greenberg of Bear Stearns & Maurice “Hank” Greenberg of AIG were cousins.

scribd.com/document/32620…
41 From my research of their family trees going back 3 generations, I can’t find the connection, but circumstantial evidence does support Martin’s allegations as a strong possibility. If they were cousins, they went to great lengths to conceal this information from the public.
42 Hank Greenberg took over AIG following his predecessor, Cornelius Vander Starr, who was both a “businessman and operative of the Office of Strategic Services(OSS) - the predecessor of the CIA.”

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornelius…
43 Cornelius Starr’s great nephew is none other than Clinton’s special prosecutor, Ken Starr & 1 of the attorneys behind Epstein’s 2008 non-prosecution agreement. Epstein’s legal team (including Starr) pressured Acosta into accepting the lenient deal.

44 Henry Kissinger chairs both AIG’s International Advisory Board and the advisory boards of several AIG-sponsored Infrastructure Funds.

insurancejournal.com/news/internati…
45 In 93 AIG became co-owner of “private spy agency” Kroll. Kroll was notorious in the 80s as the “CIA of Wall Street.” After the 93 WTC bombing, Kroll’s contract gave it unfettered access to all buildings destroyed on 9/11 in NY.

46 Greenberg’s son, Jeffrey is the chairman and CEO of Marsh & McLennan Companies. Jeffrey is also a member of the CFR. Both Maurice and Jeffrey were major contributors to the Bush families’ campaigns.
47 In 98 AIG invested 1.35B in Blackstone. In Feb 2000 AIG, Blackstone & Kissinger Assoc partnered in a venture to provide financial advisory services. In October 2000, Blackstone Real Estate purchased the mortgage of WTC7.

48 The plane crash into the north tower on 9/11 should have raised red flags because both floors were occupied by Marsh & McLennan with ties to Kroll Assoc which held the security contract at the WTC.

49 In 06, whistleblower Richard Grove spoke on his work for Marsh prior to 9/11. He states he worked for Silverstream which built internet trading platforms. The most advanced software went to Marsh, enabling paperless transaction.
corbettreport.com/episode-232-ai…
amazon.com/Black-11-Money…
50 The connectivity was designed to allow Marsh & AIG to be the 1st companies on the planet to streamline paperless transactions between them. Silverstream set up in WTC1 and worked round the clock to meet the July 2001 deadline.

corbettreport.com/episode-232-ai…

51 Grove noticed a $7M overpayment by Marsh to Silverstream & was offered hush money. He was summoned to meet with Marsh and bring all of his evidence to the WTC on 9/11 but got stuck in traffic when the attack occurred.

52 Listen to Richard Grove's testimony regarding AIG/ Marsh / Kroll / Blackstone / CIA / Mossad connections to the 9/11 attack.

53 9/11 hijacker, Mohammed Atta, was trained at Huffman Aviation. That school was funded by Wally Hilliard, with Oryx Corp. Oryx was founded by Epstein’s client, Adnan Khashoggi, and Sheik Kamal Adham, director of Saudi intelligence.

54 Huffman Airport has a long history of criminal enterprise associated with CIA and Mossad activity.

madcowprod.com/2009/07/27/huf…
55 Mohammed Atta honed his flying skills at Lantana, the Palm Beach County Airport. Lantana has reportedly been used for CIA and Mossad operations as well.

angirfana.blogspot.com/2015/04/jeffre…
56 One of Jeffrey Epstein's 'assistants' who was included in the non prosecution agreement, Nadia Marcinkova, learned to fly at Florida's Lantana Airport at about the same time as Atta.

57 Fast forward to the 2008 financial crisis, under the Bush administration, Ace Greenberg’s Bear Stearns and Maurice Greenberg’s AIG were deemed as “too big to fail” and received $210B in government bailout combined.

investopedia.com/insights/too-b…
58 By way of the Paradise Papers, we know Epstein’s Liquid Funding Ltd was heavily invested in Bear Stearns sub-prime mortgage backed securities, which is precisely what sparked the 2008 financial crisis and Bear Stearns ultimate demise.

icij.org/investigations…
59 The question is, was this the plan all along? Was the financial crisis manufactured?
60 Blackstone, tied to AIG & Kissinger, had an spinoff company, BlackRock, a Caymans Island bank -tasked to evaluate the “fairness” of the JP Morgan Acquisition of Bear Stearns. The deal involved a bailout of Bear Stearns creditors through the Fed.

constantinereport.com/scam-bear-stea…
61 The lead negotiator of the deal, Pres of the NY Fed, Geithner, is a former employee of Kissinger Assoc & was appointed to the Fed by Peter Peterson of Blackstone.

constantinereport.com/scam-bear-stea…
62 Geithner was an employee at Kissinger Associates when it was engaged in discussions of mergers with BCCI, which was later indicted for drug money laundering.

constantinereport.com/scam-bear-stea…
Epstein’s involvement with the world-wide criminal syndicate stretches far beyond his honeypot / blackmail schemes.

FROM IRAN CONTRA TO 9/11 AND BEYOND, IF YOU FOLLOW THE GREEN IT WILL LEAD TO THE CRIMINAL NETWORK

EPSTEIN – GREENBERG – KHASHOGGI – BUSH –CLINTON - CIA - MOSSAD
