If I were into broadcasting centered around conspiracy theories, these days I would be breaking rating records. And not just by a small margin. Forget the rest of the world, just based on the events that have occurred in the USA in the last week alone, it would be possible to write thousands of pages of scenarios.
Moreover, the Jeffry Epstein case is shaking not just the USA, but the entire world. While we are shocked by what we find in the pages of the Epstein file, the discovery of tunnels under a famous Synagogue in New York emerged. After finding a baby stroller and a bloody bed in the tunnel, the scenarios started flying around. It turns out that the Jewish Community associated with the Synagogue has frequent interactions with Tayyip Erdogan. As if these weren’t enough, the U.S. Secretary of Defense has been missing for days.
Minister Lloyd Austin, who was hospitalized on New Year’s Eve, was out of sight for a week and no one in the government seemed to know where he was. Days later, it was announced that the minister had cancer. This can be considered a situation ripe for conspiracy theories.
I won’t repeat what has been written and said about the Epstein file, as I don’t want to take up your time. Frankly, I don’t see it as merely the vulgarity and depravity of a rich and immoral man.
I don’t want to promote conspiracy theories, but there’s a lot that warrants skepticism. Sure, Epstein was a rich man with popular and powerful connections. However, the parties he hosted in both New York and other parts of the USA, the guests he entertained, and the dealings on his private island in the Caribbean can’t just be seen as simple hedonism.
According to CIA records, the criminal organization set up by Epstein has a total of 3,000 separate recordings. Men as rich and powerful as Epstein do not record such important figures, including U.S. presidents, just for fantasy’s sake.
It’s also evident that Epstein’s path crossed with Israeli intelligence, as many witnesses have testified. The kidnapping of young children and their ‘servicing’ to rich and wealthy people on Epstein’s island must be investigated, but there is another very important issue that needs to be questioned.
Could Epstein have been doing all this on behalf of an organization?
It doesn’t seem logical to think that he archived all that camera footage and photographs just for memories. It appears that politicians, bureaucrats, or individuals in critical positions are vulnerable to blackmail. We can’t imagine that a power center with knowledge of these crimes or holding these images wouldn’t use them.
That’s why the Epstein case should not be limited to the dimension of kidnapping and abusing young children. I know it’s not easy. Concrete evidence must be provided to prove the existence of blackmail. It’s a known fact that those subjected to blackmail won’t easily reveal it. This is where free media comes into play. If the media bravely pursues it, some things can be clarified more easily.
Frankly, a scandal involving popular figures, powerful politicians, very rich businessmen, and famous artists should have received more attention in the mainstream media. But it didn’t. The world’s major newspapers and television channels didn’t show the interest it deserved. This situation strengthens the hand of conspiracy theorists. Eventually, everything is being linked back to the Jewish lobby.
As a result, the scandal is predominantly being discussed and talked about on social media. “So what does all this have to do with us?” If our readers are wondering, let me say upfront; the issue is not that simple.
Firstly, the actors of this scandal are people who govern and direct the world. Any scandal they’re involved in affects the lives of ordinary people elsewhere in the world.
Secondly, you surely don’t think these events are only happening in the USA. Let me refresh your memory with two separate examples.
Epstein’s island and his mansion equipped with hidden cameras remind me of the famous farm in Sakarya owned by Cem and Hakan Uzan. At the farm, not only were there cameras recording the bedrooms, but there was also a system that collected and analyzed urine samples from the toilets used by the guests.
There are also examples similar to the Sauna Gang, which was more organized, had the backing of state power, and was on a much larger scale.
After the Erdogan regime was caught red-handed in the large corruption and bribery operation on December 17, 2013, it allied with the old crime organizations of Turkey and shut down all major investigations.
One of these was the Ankara-based Sauna Gang investigation. A group was uncovered, including soldiers from the Turkish Armed Forces’ elite Special Forces, senior police officers from security, names from the MIT, and hitmen from mafia organizations.
In short, the organization operated like this: politicians, bureaucrats, or businessmen targeted were recorded through hidden cameras placed in massage parlors and saunas, and then blackmailed using these recordings.
Many inappropriate images of politicians and senior bureaucrats were found in the recordings obtained from the gang members. However, a considerable number of those recordings are still unrecoverable. Who knows which politician or bureaucrat was recorded in those places and what kind of blackmail was or is being carried out?
The examples can be multiplied.
In the end, Turkish politics is full of such scandals. Recent scandals involving Deniz Baykal and MHP executives are still fresh in everyone’s mind.
So how should we approach both the Epstein scandal and examples from Turkey?
It’s hard to pass judgment without material evidence. That is, we can’t know for sure whether these organizations carried out blackmail based on tapes.
However, there is one method we can use for verification; if a politician, bureaucrat, or businessman is doing things contrary to the normal course of life or making choices that can’t be logically explained, then we should ‘wonder’.
If you look at it from this perspective, many events that are hard to explain will become understandable.
