Kleptocracy World Order
In this week’s Gaslit Nation, Sarah and Andrea express their ongoing frustration about last week’s deja news avalanche of stories about corruption that remains unpunished. As America, the land of collective amnesia, realizes yet again that Trump is a Russian asset following the confessions of Michael Cohen, Sarah and Andrea discuss what it means for brazen, blatant criminals to go caught but unpunished.

Among the topics discussed are the horrific Jeffrey Epstein case, which has risen to the fore again after an in-depth expose by the Miami Herald. Gaslit Nation reviews the case, the attempts to suppress it by threatening both victims and those documenting the crimes, and wonders yet again why Trump is friends with multiple confirmed pedophiles – Epstein being only the most famed example. (Another alleged pedophile rapist is Alan Dershowitz, who represented Epstein and who was accused of raping a teenager brought to the Epstein estate; the case was ultimately settled out of court.)

We take a look at the criminal network surrounding Epstein, particularly Ghislaine Maxwell, who procured underage girls and was the daughter of Mossad operative and UK publishing magnate Robert Maxwell – who was, in turn, the man allegedly responsible for getting Russian mafia don Semyon Mogilevich an Israeli passport and allowing his organized crime network to flourish around the world. The episode also touches on corruption in Israel linked to Trump, including the relationship between Netanyahu and the Kushners, the role of Black Cube, the abuse of right of return privileges in Israel by criminals and oligarchs from the former USSR, and one-issue mega-donor Sheldon Adelson’s enormous influence of the GOP and policy in the Middle East. 

In addition, we discuss the G20 and the back-slapping journalist-murderers Putin and MBS; the increased Russian aggression in Ukraine and US warmongering with regard to Iran; the idiocy of Eric Trump; the legacy of George HW Bush, and more. This is a jam-packed and super-angry episode of Gaslit Nation, but that’s what happens when stories of child abuse, murder, and corruption dominate the headlines for years and justice remains unserved.
