“With the precision of sniper fire.”

They’ve been protected by their political and media puppets while their destructive technologies advance. They’ve made trillions on the profits of destroying life.

“With the precision of sniper fire” was an appropriate description because it was a munition re-packaged as the pharmaceutical thalidomide created in the IG Farben Nazi death camps. The guards at the women’s camp stated women were given pills and injections and the babies born had horrific malformations. They knew and what is missing from this documentary is that limbless babies were still being born in Brazil when this film was released from thalidomide renamed pharmaceuticals. They mention Otto Ambros in the documentary “Attacking the Devil,” and that Rupert Murdoch bought out all the Times. Harold Evans resigned and the investigative journalist division “Insight” dissolved shortly after the buy out. What the Insight investigation did not know where Ambros went to work because those documents were only recently declassified in the Operation Paperclip Program to Bring Nazi Scientists to the US.

Few who ever attack the real devil ever survive professionally and some are eliminated by their security forces. The CIA, Mossad, Apartheid South Africa’s Chemical and Biological Warfare Program, and more work for them.


“IT caused the worst medical disaster in history. It destroyed more lives than were lost on 9/11. Its effects rival Chernobyl and Bhopal, the sinking of the Titanic or the Jonestown Kool-Aid cult poisoning.

It was a drug sold worldwide under a bewildering number of trade names to treat a bewildering number of ailments. Tragically, one of them was to treat morning sickness.

For pregnant women, it was no great remedy for nausea. For their unborn children, it was deadly. It killed tens of thousands of babies, left thousands more horribly deformed.

Some midwives deliberately let limbless babies die. Some parents went mad or committed suicide or abandoned their infants to charities or the state. Others resigned themselves to lives of quiet desperation and anonymous heroism.

The drug was thalidomide. It is almost exactly 50 years since a brilliant (although later disgraced) Australian doctor called William McBride alerted the world to the monstrous side-effects its makers failed to uncover before pushing it on the market.

Another surprise is that Grunenthal and its licensees flooded potential markets with sample tablets given free to doctors and hospitals. More than two million sample tablets arrived in the US alone.

So many American women took sample tablets that many more thalidomide babies were born there than the 10 survivors usually acknowledged. Gordon’s American lawyer colleagues have already found more than 100 potential claimants, many in Canada, where the drug was openly sold.

The likelihood that big, untraceable numbers of samples were distributed free to doctors worldwide before the drug went on sale raises a fresh possibility: there are people with birth defects that they don’t know were caused by thalidomide because they have been told all their lives they were random losers in a one-in-a-million genetic lottery….

You might imagine the last thalidomide child was born in 1962, in the year after the alarm was raised. In fact, hundreds have been born since then.

The last was just six months ago in Brazil, where pregnant women sometimes still take the drug without realising the harm it can do. It will all be in Martin Johnson’s book. His working title is The Last Nazi War Crime.


Media Puppets work for munitions industrialists not the public. They have systematically removed all journalists who work for the public. Understanding who pulls our media mongol’s strings.

“When his secretary burst into his Manhattan office on a February afternoon in 1982, J. Peter Grace was having lunch with publisher Rupert Murdoch. And lucky it was that Murdoch was there. To have what transpired go unwitnessed would have been the supreme anticlimax of Grace’s 70 years.

“The President wants you on the phone,” Grace’s secretary announced.
“Come on, Cynthia, we’re busy,” said the suspicious scion, who serves as chairman and chief executive officer of W. R. Grace & Co.
“But he’s on the phone! He’s on the phone! ” Cynthia persisted.
Grace picked up the receiver and, sure enough, it was the President, calling from Washington, D.C. “Hi. How are you?” Reagan asked.

“I knew it was him,” Grace remembers, “so I said, ‘Oh, hi, Mr. President,’ ” calmly striking Murdoch speechless.

As it turned out, the President was calling to ask a favor. He explained that back in 1967 when he was governor of California, he had asked a group of private-sector executives to survey the state’s bureaucracy and find ways to save some money. The scheme, he said, had worked well.

“I want to have that happening here,” he said. “We had a poll this morning in my office as to who would be the best one to do it, and you won unanimously. Will you do it?”

Grace agreed without a moment’s hesitation. “I’ll come right down.”

Thus did Grace wind up as the head of the President’s Private Sector Survey on Cost Control, now better known as the Grace Commission. Gathering 161 of his peers, mostly CEOs, around him, he set about studying cost-effectiveness — or, more to the point, the lack of it — in government. On January 12, 1984, the commission submitted its 656-page report to the CEO of us all, and Peter Grace was photographed with a beaming Reagan. “We passed the whole bloody thing the night before we gave it to the President,” Grace recalls. “It was unanimous. There wasn’t a single adverse vote.”


J. Peter Grace protected Otto Ambros and utilized our State Department to advance his technologies.

June 2, 1981
New York (Jun. 1)

“Yeshiva University had prepared, through its June 16 corporate dinner here, to honor prominent industrialist J. Peter Grace whose connection with one of the most notorious “desk murderers” of the Holocaust Otto Ambros, a director of the I.G. Farben Chemical Co. during World War II, has been public knowledge for some time.

A spokesman for the university told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency today that the dinner was cancelled this morning and that refunds were being made to holders of reservations for the $150-a-plate affair. But another person identified as a spokesman for Yeshiva University’s fundraising department told the JTA that the event has been “postponed.” He said he had no idea when the dinner would be re-scheduled.

According to advance publicity, Grace, chief executive officer of W.R. Grace and Co., an international chemical concern, was to “receive the University’s Distinguished Service Award for his outstanding leadership in civic and humanitarian endeavors.”

There is documentation that Grace has both personally and corporately utilized and interceded in behalf of convicted war criminal Ambros, who for years has been a highly paid consultant of W.R. Grace and Co. According to a January 13, 1980 ABC-TV Network documentary entitled “Escape from Justice: Nazi War Criminals in America,” Ambros “was helped in a bid to enter the United States by this man, J. Peter Grace, President of W.R. Grace and Company … Grace officials confirmed a business relationship between their corporation and Ambros. Today, Otto Ambros does consulting work for W.R. Grace and Company ….”
The ABC script also says: “Ambros was a chemist and director of the notorious I.G. Farben Chemical Company which supplied gasoline and rubber for Hitler’s war effort. Ambros is credited with developing a form of synthetic rubber, called buna, and he played a supervisory role in the construction of Farben’s buna plant in the Polish village of Auschwitz …. For his role there, Otto Ambros was convicted of slavery and mass murder and sentenced to eight years in prison.”

Ambros served less than three years of his sentence, and then was able to enter the United States through Project Paperclip, a high level intelligence operation begun by the U.S. as early as 1944 to bring German and Austrian scientists and technicians here.

The ABC program presented actual documents to viewers and stated: “This copy of an internal State Department document describes how J. Peter Grace helped Otto Ambros in his efforts to enter the United States. In a memorandum to the U.S. Ambassador to Germany, Grace acknowledges that Ambros was a war criminal. But he adds that in the years he’s known Ambros, and I quote here, ‘we have developed a very deep admiration, not only for his ability but more important for his character in terms of truthfulness and integrity.’

”As a consequence of individual protests regarding the scheduled dinner to honor Grace, a spokesman for Yeshiva University told JTA on Thursday that the dinner had been cancelled. “We are not sitting in judgement of Mr. Grace — that’s not our role,” he said. “But a lot of us are shocked to discover what we did. There are Holocaust survivors among our top people, and a goodly number of people at Yeshiva University have strong feelings. Until this became unraveled, we had no idea. We feel it is in the best interests of what Yeshiva University stands for to cancel the dinner.”

The JTA first learned of the individual protests regarding the honor to Grace from Charles R. Allen, Jr., whom the media has described as the “preeminent authority on Nazi war criminals in America.” On May 21, Allen wrote a letter to Dr. Norman Lamm, Yeshiva University President, expressing his shock at the school’s announcement of the award to Grace.

Calling Yeshiva University a “center of learning and scholarship” and “a living symbol ot intellectual, scientific and artistic gifts which the Jewish people have brought to all peoples,” Allen said in the letter, “I protest this award to Mr. Grace …. Evidence shows indisputably that Ambros was given a special visitor’s visa on at least three other occasions (plus the one documented on ABC-TV) in 1968, 1969 and 1971 at the behest of J. Peter Grace.”

In addition to the Grace connection with Ambros, Allen cited “recently increased participation in Grace equity by the Flick interests of Germany (the Federal Republic) …..(See Case V, U.S. Nuremberg War Crimes Trials, for the record of its officials’ guilt in war crimes, spoilation, deportation and mass murder, as well as extensive financing of Hitler, the NSDAP (Nazi Party) and Himmler’s ‘Circle of Friends.’)”

Allen pointed out further, in his letter to Lamm, that Ambros was Nazi Germany’s “authority on poison gas” and I.G. Farben held a majority interest in the company which manufactured and delivered deadly zyklon B gas to the SS.
A substantial corporate contributor to Yeshiva University protested the announcement of the award, and told the JTA: “If the dinner is on, there will not only be a demonstration outside, but a disruption inside, from people who will buy tickets. I feel it is a disgrace for one Jewish organization to picket another one, but it is more of a disgrace to honor this man.”
Yeshiva University officials had been in touch with W.R. Grace and Company before their decision to cancel the dinner the JTA learned. A Yeshiva spokesman told JTA that the Grace Company officials claimed Grace had been honored two years earlier by the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith. Abraham Foxman, ADL Associate Director, “absolutely” denied this claim, adding that the possibility was discussed and vetoed because of allegations of Grace’s connection with Ambros.”


Rupert Murdoch was protecting both Grace and Ambros. The documentary mentions Ambros but fails to fully explain his role as director of chemical operations at IG and his role as Hitler’s director of chemical weapons. The documentary states that he went to work for a small German pharmaceutical company not that he became a director advisor for Dow Chemical and General Electric as well as was at the very center of the US military industrial complex. His protégé, Fritz Hoffmann went on to create 2,4-D. Agent Orange was one of his creations.
“The Dyhernfurth complex was a sprawling, state-of-the-art production plant. Speer’s Armaments and War Production Ministry had paid Farben nearly 200 million reichsmarks to build and operate it. The facility had been secretly and skillfully designed and managed by Otto Ambros. As he had done with IG Auschwitz, Ambros had overseen every element of this chemical weapons factory dating from the winter of 1941, when the think forest here was first cleared of pine trees by 120 concentration camp slaves.” page 26 of Operation Paperclip

“The concentration camp already existing with approximately 7000 prisoners is to be expanded.” Santo noted in his official company report. For Ambros, Farben’s arrangement with the SS regarding slave laborers remained vague; Ambros sought clarity. “It is therefore necessary to open negotiations with the Reich Leader SS [Himmler] as soon as possible to discuss necessary measures with him,” Ambros wrote in his official company report. The two men had a decades-old relationship; Heinrich Himmler and Otto Ambros had known one another since grade school. Ambros could make Himmler see eye-to-eye with him on the benefits that Auschwitz offered to both Farben and the SS. – Operation Paperclip. page 153.

Remember Ruppert Murdoch owns Nat Geo….

“the footage is not from Aleppo at all, but in fact from Gaza and only labeled as Aleppo. The original source footage comes from 2014, and is from the Israeli operation that took more than 2,200 Palestinian lives that summer, long before the Russians started providing air support for the Syrian army.

The use of this footage in the National Geographic preview, falsely labeling the location as Aleppo and implicating the Syrian or Russian Air Force in the destruction, is therefore a shameless and utter fraud.”

It’s important to know who Murdoch actually works for. He assists in manufacturing wars with nations to assist our munitions industrialists in securing resources for their production needs and at our expense.


Otto Ambros continued his weapons work in Israel.

“In separate letters to Finance Minister Ludger Westrick and Deputy Finance Minister Dr. Dollinger, a new secret was revealed, though Ambros promised not to make public a piece of the information they shared. “Concerning the firms abroad where I am a permanent co-worker advisor,” Ambros wrote, “I won’t name them [publicly] because I don’t want to tip off any journalists who might cause trouble with my friends. You know about W.R. Grace in New York… and I hope I can stay with Hibernia Company. Concerning the firms in Israel,” Ambros wrote, “stating their names publicly would be very embarrassing because they are [run by] very public, well-respected persons in public positions that have actually been at my home and are aware of my position, how I behaved during the Reich, and they accept this.”

The “well-respected” public figures in Israel to whom Ambros referred have never been revealed. That Ambros also had worked for the American company W.R Grace would take decades to come to light. When it did, in the early 1980s, the public would also learn that Otto Ambros worked as a consultant for the U.S. Department of Energy, formerly the Atomic Energy Commission, “to develop and operate a plant for the hydrogenation of coal in a scale of 4 million tons/year at the former IG Farben industry.” That a convicted war criminal had been hired by the Department of Energy sparked indignation, and congressmen and journalists sought further details about Ambros’s U.S. government contract. In a statement to the press, the Department of Energy insisted that the paperwork had been lost…

Letters on White House stationary reveal that Deputy National Security Adviser James W. Nance briefed Reagan about how it was that the U.S. government could have hired Otto Ambros. Nance’s argument to the president was that many others hired him. “Dr. Ambros had contracts with numerous officials from Allied countries,” wrote Nance. “Dr. Ambros was a consultant to companies such as Distillers Limited of England; Pechiney, the French chemical giant; and Dow Europe of Switzerland. He was also the chairman of Knoll, a pharmaceutical subsidiary of the well known chemical corporation BASF.” President Reagan requested further information from the Department of Energy on its Ambros contract. Nance told the president, “The DOE and/or ERDA [The Energy Research and Development Administration] do not have records that would answer the questions you asked in the detail you requested. However, with Ambros’ involvement in the company shown and his special knowledge in hydrogenation of coal, we know there were productive contacts between Dr. Ambros and U.S. energy officials.” Even the president of the United States could not get complete information about an Operation Paperclip legacy.

In the midst of the scandal, a reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle telephoned Ambros at his home in Mannheim, Germany, and asked Ambros about his 1948 conviction at Nuremberg for mass murder and slavery.

“That happened a very long time ago,” Ambros told the reporter. “It involved Jews. We do not think about it anymore.” – Operation Paperclip

Should note that the “A” in Sarin stands for Ambros. He was responsible for its industrial scale production.

The Jeffrey Epstein case information is critically important for citizens to examine for understanding the human trafficking markets and how victims are procured into this widespread and concealed market. I have typed up relevant excerpts from TrafficKing by Conchita Sarnoff (The Executive Director of Alliance to Rescue Victims of Trafficking) as well as additional information and links that help to provide a more comprehensive picture of this widespread market impacting many communities around the world. Massive privatization and predatory loaning provides the fuel for child sex slave trafficking markets both within the United States and internationally. It is happening in the US and citizens need to understand it. I hope you will take the time to read the following information so you have a comprehensive understanding of how the ruling class and their political puppets are getting away with far more than robbery.
Jeffrey Epstein Level 3-sex offender. Epstein was not prosecuted under the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA), enacted in Florida in 2000. TVPA aims to protect victims and prosecute human traffickers by imposing a minimum mandatory sentence of 20 years in a federal prison…. In the end, Epstein served only 13 months in the Palm Beach county jail and was allowed to leave his private cell on an all day work release program. Following his release from Palm Beach county jail, he served 18 months house arrest in his Palm Beach estate. During that time period, he allegedly committed 11 parole violations according to Brad Edwards, a South Florida Victims Rights attorney representing several victims….
Epstein’s building, at East 66th Street in Manhattan managed by his younger brother, Mark Epstein, is the apartment complex on Second Avenue known to house some of the girls. The building presumably continues to provide a few accommodations for several foreign-born models that allegedly work for MC2. MC2 has offices in Tel Aviv, Miami, and a satellite office in New York. (page 38)
“Kellen used one of those cameras to take pictures of some girls. One nude was “Nadia Marcinkova, alias Nadia Marcinkov, Epstein’s underage girlfriend from Yugoslavia at that time… page 130
In fact, Nadia Marcinkova was allegedly 14 years old, in 2005, when Epstein brought her to the U.S. from Eastern Europe to live with him in Palm Beach. It is still a mystery how Epstein met the 14 year old and convinced her parents to allow their daughter to move with him to the United States. page 134
Another question that troubled me concerned Marcinkova. If indeed she was more a victim than a procurer, given her age at the time she met Epstein, and Epstein’s 14 year-old ‘girlfriend’ when the alleged crimes were committed, why was her visa status not investigated? Why did the United States Attorney’s Office abstain from moving forward with an investigation into the Marcinkova’s case? page 174
Re the two paragraphs following your paragraph 8: I will mention “co conspirators,” but I would prefer not to highlight for the judge all of the other crimes and all of the other persons that we could charge. Also, we do not have the power to bind Immigration and we make it a policy not to try to, however, I can tell you that, as far as I know, there is no plan to try to proceed on any immigration charges against either Ms. Ross (Adrianna Ross) or Ms. Marcinkova (Nadia Marcinkova). (e-mail sent from Ann Marie Villafana, former Assistant U.S. Attorney during the criminal investigation, to one of Epstein’s lawyers, Jay Lefkowitz. Strangely, Villafana sent the note using her personal e-mail account rather than the official DOJ account) page 175
“The Epstein-Brunel association apparently found the way to source and transport underage girls legally by employing them under false pretenses as models hired to work at MC2. This model corroborated the testimony given by a number of the victims in their depositions, that Epstein promised some of the underage girls modeling jobs at MC2 and Victoria’s Secret. It is also true, however, that some girls brought into the U.S. by MC2 are in fact working models. The question is: what percentage of those girls brought into the U.S. actually earn a living as MC2 models?” – page 35
“Documents filed during the lawsuit exposed that, “MC2 employees told the attorney, Brad Edwards, who at the time was representing several victims, that Epstein’s Manhattan condominium at 301 East 66th Street was used to house the young models.”
The Complaint also made public that, “MC2 brought underage girls from all over the world, promising them modeling contracts. Epstein and Brunel would obtain a visa for the girls and would charge the underage girls rent.”
“Brunel admitted he, “Evaded depositions by Brad Edwards on behalf of several of Epstein’s victims and that his “Evasion was due to Epstein’s instructions.” In paragraph 33, Brunel disclosed that Epstein insisted he “leave Palm Beach in anticipation of a deposition linked to Epstein’s criminal case.” – page 36
“Two former underage survivors who don’t wish to be identified came forward in 2009 and 2010. The girls corroborated the information revealed in the Brunel Complaint and went a step further. They said that Epstein lured some victims by baiting them with potential modeling contracts if they “massaged” him. They mentioned MC2 and Victoria’s Secret. Victoria’s Secret is a lingerie chain owned by Epstein’s friend, Leslie Wexner.” – page 37
“And as Epstein first faced federal prosecution a few years later, one of his lawyers, Gerald B. Lefcourt, wrote to prosecutors to tout Epstein’s pedigree as “part of the original group that conceived of the Clinton Global Initiative,” according to a letter attached to Wednesday’s court filing…
On the day the deal was signed, an attorney for Epstein sent an e-mail to the federal prosecutor handling the case which read, “Please do whatever you can to keep this from becoming public,” according o an email exchange attached to Wednesday’s filing.” – page 182 Several years went by before I ran into Maxwell again. It was 2007, while attending the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) in New York City. CGI, as it is commonly known, is a mammoth quasi-political/public relations fund-raising conference created by former President Clinton. According to a well-known global events executive who wishes to remain anonymous, the former president modeled CGI after Professor Klaus Schwab’s, World Economic Forum.
The World Economic Forum (WEF), which began in 1971, is the foremost global public policy conference in the world. It is held annually in Devos, Switzerland. A perennial high-octane platform for debate, it is committed to improving our world by catering to King’s, heads of state, world leaders, and CEO’s of multi-billion dollar corporations who influence our planet.
The source revealed that the Clinton Global Initiative was originally funded by a generous gift from Epstein for a sum of four million dollars. I have been unable to verify or refute the amount of this claim since the organization’s accounting records do not disclose the information and Clinton did not return my call. However, one media report claims that Epstein’s lawyer, Gerald Leftcourt confirmed in a media report that his client was among the founders of CGI. – page 88 TrafficKing
“Many are lured by promises of finding work in the West as waitresses or nannies. (And models) Once isolated from their families, the sex traffickers take their passports and sell the women to pimps for between $500 and $1,500. At some venues, like the nightclubs in Brcko, near the Bosnia-Serbia border, women are auctioned like cattle to brothel owners. The area is known locally as the “Arizona market” in recognition of American influence. It was established as a zone of separation following the partition of the republic into two entities and is policed by NATO troops. The US provided finance to establish it as a free trade zone and it has long been a centre for trade in illicit goods.”
Tel Aviv has been an important hub in sex slavery for a very long time. Recall that MC2, the modeling agency that procured young girls for Epstein has an office in Tel Aviv?
“After World War II and with the creation of the State of Israel, new immigrants, who were occasionally forced to prostitute themselves in order to survive, fueled Israel’s sex trade. As in countries all over the world, Israeli sex buyers readily exploited economically and socially disadvantaged populations. Yet, as Israel developed into a wealthy nation, it became economically viable to sustain a sex trafficking industry, and international organized crime quickly recognized a financial opportunity.
By the 1990’s Israel was established as a destination country for trafficking, and international sex trafficking victims had replaced the local market. Israel’s flesh trade was booming and making between half a billion to three quarters of a billion dollars a year. It was a particularly desirable market for traffickers because the purchase of sexual services was, and still is, legal in Israel. This protects traffickers because it makes it difficult to prosecute them and to identify their victims. Throughout the 1990’s traffickers acted with impunity….”
This document is a research report submitted to the U.S. Department of Justice.
“The sex industry in Israel has since grown into a US$450 million a year industry, which is dependent on trafficked women from Eastern Europe. Professor Menachem Amir of Hebrew University, an expert on organized crime in Israel, estimates that 70 percent of the women in prostitution in Tel Aviv are from the former Soviet republics.28 Moreover, according to Israel’s report to CEDAW (Convention for the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women) Report, more than 95 percent of the women deported from Israel for illegal prostitution are repatriated to the former Soviet Union…. The women are enslaved and get to keep little, if any, of the money….
In Israel, a Russian or Ukrainian woman earns the pimp who controls her between US$50,000 and $100,000 per year. The women are enslaved and get to keep little, if any, of the money… Women are held in debt bondage in which they must repay their purchase price, travel expenses and all other expenses charged to them, which can be considerable, before they are allowed to leave. woman may be sold from one pimp to another at which time her debt to be repaid starts all over again.”
FRONTLINE follows Viorel on an extraordinary journey deep into the world of sex trafficking to try to find his wife, Katia, who was four months’ pregnant when she left home, and then free her from the violent pimp who now “owns” her. Along the way, the production team takes a rare, hidden-camera look at the various traffickers, pimps and middlemen who illegally buy and sell hundreds of thousands of women each year. Lured by traffickers who prey on their dreams of employment abroad, many of the women are then kidnapped and “exported” to Europe, the Middle East, the United States and elsewhere. During this process, they may be sold to pimps, locked in brothels, drugged, terrorized and raped repeatedly. In Eastern Europe, since the fall of communism, sex trafficking has become the fastest growing form of organized crime, with Moldova and Ukraine widely seen as major suppliers of women into the global sex trade.”
Many women and children are trafficked into janitorial service markets here in the states.
Oksana traveled from her hometown in Ukraine to Philadelphia, where she met her new boss.
When I came to the house, he came out. And first thing for welcome to America was, “About time you arrive, bitch.”
On arrival, Oksana learned that her boss beat and sexually assaulted her fellow janitors. One was her sister-in-law.
She got beat up, dragged down the stairs by her hair, got raped. That night, I did not sleep because I’m, like, “Well, I don’t know if there’s anybody else who’s coming. And what if he’s going to give me a welcome present, too, like she’d gotten one?” So I was terrified.
Fear kept Oksana and others cleaning Targets, Walmarts and other big box stores throughout the Northeast for a gang of Ukrainian brothers led by their boss, Omelyan Botsvynyuk.
NED CONWAY, Special Agent, FBI:
The Botsvynyuk brothers were supplying laborers to, generally, subcontractors of companies that were cleaning stores. And if you did go in that store in the middle of the night, you might see a cleaning crew cleaning the floors, cleaning the bathrooms. That’s the type of work that the victims in this case were doing seven nights a week, every day of the year.
FBI special agent Ned Conway spent years investigating the case.
Unlike smuggling, where the debt is paid off once that person is smuggled in — you pay your fee to the service provider, if you will — traffickers force the individuals, the victims, to work off that debt, and that debt is never paid off and it essentially becomes slavery.
[on camera] And the sexual assault on the women, that’s a form of coercion?
Rape is a crime of violence. It’s about controlling. It’s making sure that those women understand that the Botsvynyuk brothers are in charge. It’s keeping every one of those workers in constant fear so that they stay there working every day.
[voice-over] Four of the five Botsvynyuk brothers were charged and convicted. Omelyan, the ringleader and rapist, received a life sentence.
And Oksana? She escaped with the help of a Target employee…”
The story of Jane Doe #102 in the Jeffrey Epstein case is very important because she was a victim turned procurer for Jeffrey Epstein. Her deposition helped corroborate the testimonies of many of the underage victims and provide understanding about how young children are procured in child sex trafficking operations. She decided to disclose her identity after Ghislaine Maxwell launched a character assassination campaign against her. Virginia Louise Roberts is Jane Doe #102 in the court records and she sued both Ghislaine Maxwell and Prince Andrew. Both lawsuits were settled. Here’s Virginia’s deposition and some background into Ghislaine Maxwell and her family businesses.
Excerpts from TrafficKing.
In the summer of 1998, before her fifteenth birthday, Virginia Louise Roberts was working as a bathroom attendant at Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida. Trump publicly admitted that Epstein’s membership to Mar-A-Largo was revoked after his arrest. Born August 9, 1983, Roberts was earning $9 an hour, the day she met Ghislaine Maxwell and Epstein. Her father, Sky Williams Roberts, a maintenance manager at Trump’s property, helped his daughter secure the job.
The fourteen-year old Roberts was working part-time when Maxwell made the proposition…
While reading a book about anatomy, Ghislaine Maxwell, met me at the spa, not having an education of anything behind me, I thought this was a great opportunity to work for her.. to make some extra money and learn about massage. So, I went to Jeffrey’s mansion about five or six that afternoon.
My dad drove me there. My dad worked at Mar-A-Lago with me and he met Ghislaine (the same afternoon) and she seemed (to him) like such a nice and proper English lady, and I mean, you know… She just seemed really nice and like someone who would like to help me out. So my dad dropped me off and I had no problem getting home that night. One of her drivers would take me back after my trial…
Not afraid or fearful for my life but unsure of how all this started and wanting to obtain a profession, I was so afraid of upsetting and disappointing them, I don’t know, it was a weird situation… and I was expected to lick his nipples and give him oral sex while he fondled me and then at the end I was told by Ghislaine to get on top and straddle Jeffrey sexually.
When we were done, we all went and had a shower in the bathroom and Jeffrey told me to wash him up and down, you know with a bar of soap and make sure he was all cleaned up. And then he took me downstairs to meet two of his guards and told John to bring me home. John Alessi was the butler at the time…. – page 55
They both gave us instructions and it wasn’t just me, Jeffrey asked most girls to bring a friend to make extra money. They would use us young girls so that way it probably looked a lot safer to a girl that we were procuring younger girls that were already doing it. That was the way Jeffrey did it. Jeffrey and Ghislaine both taught me how to, depending on the circumstances, depending on the girl, how to procure a girl. You could offer them a job as a massage therapist or you could tell them you have a really rich friend with great contacts in the acting world or modeling world and he loves pretty girls, you should come back and meet him, make some money… We had a whole bunch of ways we were able to procure girls. There could have been a hundred girls, there could be more, honestly. I’m not sure how many girls, really. I wish I did know. Like I said there were so many girls over the course of 4 years, between 1998-2002, with Jeffrey… I would say definitely more than one hundred…
Jeffrey loved the latex outfits Ghislaine had for us girls. He had bondage outfits, he had all different kinds of outfits, but his favorite was the schoolgirl. Ghislaine would dress me up to surprise Jeffrey or Jeffrey would ask me to get dressed up. … Jeffrey would tell me to go give an erotic massage to (his) friends, he wouldn’t give me details, but he would say “treat them like you treat me.” So I would do what he wanted without having him say anything…. – page 61
There were about eight guys perhaps whom Virginia provided massages. Jeffrey always paid for those services, according to the telephone transcription. When asked to name the eight men, Virginia grew scared and refused to identify them.
“No, not at this stage, I just—some of these people are really influential and powerful and I don’t want to start another shit-storm with a few of them. I’ll tell you there were some erotic massages given to… I’m just afraid to say it to you. I’m really scared of where this is going.”
Scarola quickly changed the subject detecting Virginia’s distress and asked her about her travels with Epstein… – page 62
“The worst story I heard directly from his own mouth as about these pretty 12 year-old girls he had flown in, transported to Palm Beach by somebody else, for his birthday. It was a surprise birthday gift from one of his friends. They were from France. I did see them. I did meet them. Jeffrey bragged after he met them that they were 12 years-old and flown over from France because they are really poor over there, and their parents needed the money or whatever. That was the worst. He was constantly bragging about the girls’ ages or where he got them from or about their past and how terrible their past was and how good he is making it for them.”
Scarola circled back and asked Virginia more questions about what took place on Epstein’s jet…
“I remember asking Jeffrey what’s Bill Clinton doing here. He laughed and said, ‘Well he owes me a favor.’ He never told me what favors they were. I never knew. He told me a long time ago that everyone owes him favors. They’re all in each other’s pockets…”
“Virginia,” Scarola asked, when asked Epstein why is Bill Clinton here, where was here?” Virginia replied, “On the island.” Besides living in Palm Beach, Epstein owns a private island, Little St. John’s in the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI). “When you were present with Jeffrey Epstein and Bill Clinton on the island, who else was there?” Scarola asked
“Ghislaine, Emmy (Taylor), and there were two young girls that I could identify. I never knew them well anyways. It was just 2 girls from New York.” Scarola asked, “And were all of you staying at Jeffrey’s house on the island including Bill Clinton?”
“That’s correct,” said Virginia. “Jeffrey’s house has about 4 or 5 different villas on the island separate from the main house and we all stayed in the villas.”… Scarola continued, “Were sexual orgies a regular occurrence on the island at Jeffrey’s house?”
“Yes,” responded Virginia. – portions from page 67 & 68
I walked away from it all… it hadn’t really ended… Jeffrey sent me to Thailand where I met my husband and escaped to Australia, never to return to the States. Six months prior to that, he came up with a proposition that I thought was really disgustingly sick. And it really showed me for the first time in four years, I had been with him, that nothing was going to change and that I was always just going to be used by him.
He offered me a mansion and some of his money every month. I forget what he called it. a monthly income, in order to bear his child.
The proposition was to have a child with him but sign my child over to him. Basically, the child would be his and Ghislaine’s and I would be looking after it as long as nothing happened between Jeffrey and me. So, I was kind of freaked out by all of that.
I was 19 (by then) and he likes females a lot younger, so I pushed Jeffrey to get me some more training since I was getting older and no longer of much interest to him. He sent me to Thailand in September 2002, where I was supposed to meet a girl and bring her back for him, but I never met up with her. Instead, I got a short course in Thai massage. Sending me there was his way of shutting me up about my training… so I went….
I called Jeffrey and told him I’m never coming back, I’m married. I’ve fallen in love. I thought he’d wish the best for me. He was rude and said, “Have a good life,” and hung up the phone. That was the last time I talked to him-ever- until all this started again. – page 52
Virginia’s telephone testimony substantiated many facts previously included in her earlier testimonies given under the alias Jane Doe No. 102. Her earlier Complaint described in detail how Maxwell apparently recruited underage girls turning the victims of sex trafficking into both procurers. – page 72
Scarola continued, “If we were to take sworn testimony from the people I am going to name, and if those people were to tell the truth about what they knew, do you believe that any of the following people would have relevant information about Jeffrey’s taking advantage of underage girls?”
“Yes,” confirmed Virginia
“So, I’ll just name a name, and you tell me ‘yes’ if they told the truth, I think they have relevant information of ‘no,’ I don’t think they would, or ‘I don’t know whether they would or not,’ Ok? You understand?”
“Yes,” responded Virginia
Scarola: Ok, Les Wexner?
Roberts: I think he has relevant information, but I don’t think he will tell you the truth.
Scarola: What about Alan Dershowitz?
Roberts: Yes…..
Scarola: Prince Andrew?
Roberts: Yes, he would know a lot of the truth. Again, I don’t know how much he would be able to help you, but seeing he’s in a lot of trouble himself these days, I think he might, so I think he may be valuable. – page 70
(Virginia Louise Roberts has since sued Prince Andrew. “Prince Andrew spared trial as underage ‘sex slave’ settles out of court.”
Virginia Louise Roberts was the underage ‘sex slave’ he settled out of court with. *Take note that this link is now no longer functional.)
Attorney David Bois offered Virginia Louis Roberts free legal representation in both her case against Prince Andrew and her case against Ghislaine Maxwell. Both were settled out of court and detailed information of those cases were not released to the public.

Enter Harvey Weinstein


“The film executive hired private investigators, including ex-Mossad agents, to track actresses and journalists.

Weinstein’s lawyers, including David Boies, a celebrated attorney who represented Al Gore in the 2000 Presidential-election dispute and argued for marriage equality before the U.S. Supreme Court. Boies personally signed the contract directing Black Cube to attempt to uncover information that would stop the publication of a Times story about Weinstein’s abuses, while his firm was also representing the Times, including in a libel case…

Boies confirmed that his firm contracted with and paid two of the agencies and that investigators from one of them sent him reports, which were then passed on to Weinstein. He said that he did not select the firms or direct the investigators’ work. He also denied that the work regarding the Times story represented a conflict of interest. Boies said that his firm’s involvement with the investigators was a mistake. “We should not have been contracting with and paying investigators that we did not select and direct,” he told me. “At the time, it seemed a reasonable accommodation for a client, but it was not thought through, and that was my mistake. It was a mistake at the time.”


Weinstein Accuser Ambra Battilana Gutierrez Sued Italian Magnate ‘Mr. G’ and Berlusconi for Sex Abuse

“In her native Italy, this young model took two alleged lechers to court for sexual improprieties. Now she’s told police that one of Hollywood’s biggest moguls groped her, too.

“I have no reason not to believe what she is saying is true,” Bugnano said. “She told me the whole story about what happened and she went to an interview arranged by her modeling agency and he touched her breasts and tried to lift her skirt. She was very bothered by the incident. She went to the police to denounce him. Now she is cooperating fully.”

Berlusconi was later charged and cleared with paying for sex with Ruby when she was 17. At his underage-sex trial, all the young women at his parties, including Battilana, were referred to as prostitutes and worse by witnesses. Battilana then sued Berlusconi’s close associates who testified or damages to her reputation, earning her the title of “bunga bunga turncoat.”


Information regarding Ghislaine Maxwell and her family business activities and associations from “TrafficKing.”
Her professional activities are far narrower than her social life. Publicity for her foundation, The Terra Mar Project, started in 2012. According to one article, The Terra Mar Project was blessed if not partially funded by the Clintons since according to a Vanity Fair report, Maxwell “is passionate about Bill Clinton, with whom she is close friends.” – page 91
A few media reports attributed the elder Maxwell’s death to the Mossad while others maintained he was besieged by debt and consequently ended his life. During my investigation, a former Mossad agent, who wishes to be anonymous, suggested the Mossad killed Maxwell… – page 8
… less than one month after Maxwell’s death, the Serious Fraud Office in England began an investigation into Ian and Kevin Maxwell’s participation in Maxwell’s companies.
As a result of the investigation, both sons, Kevin and Ian, were arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit fraud; allegedly misusing pension funds; the use of pension funds to finance the Maxwell Group of companies; and use of fraud by the Maxwell’s to extend bank credits.
In 1996, after an eight months trial, Kevin and Ian Maxwell were acquitted on charges of fraud. Three financial institutions: Lehman Brothers, Goldman Sachs, and Coopers & Lybrand, interceded on their behalf in an effort to rescue them and their partner, the American financial advisor, Larry Trachtenberg.
Trachtenberg, 38 at the time of the indictment, “was a former compliance officer at London & Bishopsgate, the pension fund managing company at the center of the 400 million pound sterling black hole in Maxwell’s Mirror Group pension assets.”
The Los Angeles Times reported that, “Kevin Maxwell and Trachtenberg were charged with defrauding Swiss Bank Corp of $101 million by selling stock they did not own and stealing $13 million worth of stock belonging to Mirror Group Pension Trustees Ltd., one of Robert Maxwell’s company pension stocks.”
When Ian, Ghislaine’s older brother, “was charged with defrauding Swiss Volks Bank of $35.5 million by misrepresenting ownership of stock in Berlitz International after his father’s death, according to the fraud office documents,” Trachtenberg and Kevin were also charged with the same crime.
Ghislaine may not have been privy to her father’s business activities, although that was never proven. With the exception of Maxwell, no one will ever know with any certainty the professional relationship that existed between Ghislaine and her father. Except that Maxwell’s media empire was considerably overextended by the time he attempted to take over The New York Daily News and MacMillan Publishers where Ghislaine was to begin her apprenticeship.
Had the deal materialized, it was reported that Maxwell would have moved to a position of power. One can assume that if that was going to be her role, then during the negotiations, Ghislaine might have also been privy to some of the financial details of the deal.
What is known is that, “at the time of her father’s death, auditors discovered that about $670 million was missing from the Maxwell companies’ pension funds. All but some $50 million were recovered, mostly through settlements among the funds and Maxwell companies, their auditors and financial advisers, including Lehman Brothers, Goldman Sachs, and Coopers & Lebrun, “the very same financial institutions that later came to the brother’s rescue.” – page 81
Unlike her father, Ghislaine was known as a “fixer.” She has to this day an impressive list of friends from around the globe including presidents, heads of state, and a bouquet of British aristocrats. For years, she was known as the go between former President Clinton and Epstein. – page 8
As it stands, Maxwell, 54, must comply with Judge Sweet’s order instructing her to disclose “documents and records of conversations (emails) she had with Epstein and others related to the sex trafficking operation between 1999 and 2016,” if Roberts Guiffre is specific in her pretrial discovery questions and identifies the individuals who communicated with Maxwell about the alleged sex trafficking of girls.
As of April 11, 2016 the case is pending and Maxwell has yet to be deposed.

Regarding Ghislaine Maxwell’s father.
An article about Maxwell and Israeli intelligence/Mossad.
Was Robert Maxwell Murdered?
“Maxwell was highly regarded by the Israeli government. He was certainly used by them to help in the process of Jewish emigration from the Soviet Union and, in return, he was seen by the Soviet government as an important contact in dealings with Israel. This involved commercial interests as well that linked Maxwell with secret defence deals between Israel and the countries of Eastern Europe. Maxwell had important investments in the Israeli defence industry, especially in the trading park at Haifa….

It was even feasible that Maxwell took an overdose of drugs which left him semi-conscious as he opened the door of his cabin on his yacht, the Lady Ghislaine: gasping for air, fumbling toward the deck rail, he slid overboard in the early hours of darkness off the Canaries on that fateful morning. I have, however, changed my view on all this. I no longer believe that he was not murdered…

Bob Maxwell knew he was in irreversible trouble in his business affairs. Everywhere he looked, his great empire seemed to be collapsing around him – except for the still-profitable Mirror Group Newspapers. His American acquisitions were a crushing debt burden. He had rifled the entire pension funds of Maxwell Communications to try to ease that debt burden, and he mortgaged virtually all his wealth on a huge gamble with fate. There was no one left to rescue Bob Maxwell – except one possible saviour. He still had friends in very high political places. If they failed him then commercial disaster would swiftly turn to criminal investigations. So what happened to those political friends in high places. If they failed him then commercial disaster would swiftly turn to criminal investigations. So what happened to those political friends in high places?

Maxwell built up a tremendous catalogue of politically-influential contacts with wide commercial implications. For over 20 years he had established a network of commercial and political interests in the communist countries of Eastern Europe, which was a linchpin of his Pergamon Press Company…

The possibility that Maxwell could have ended up in the Old Bailey on charges of criminal fraud raised critical questions for a number of countries involved in the Maxwell triangle of international dealings. Bob Maxwell in the dock of the Old Bailey was not a prospect any of these groups, which included the US, Britain, Soviet Russia, Israel and France, would have appreciated.”

They offer free legal services and settled the cases to protect the larger sex trafficking market.
DAVID BOIES is an important attorney protecting that market.
“Edwards a South Florida attorney represents Ransome in partnership with David Boies in New York. Neither attorney returned my calls for comments. Edwards and Boies are jointly representing another victim, Virginia R. Giuffre, pro bono in the ongoing Virginia Giuffre vs. Ghislaine Maxwell case.”
The extent of Jeffrey’s crimes is well documented in TrafficKing and his background is important.
Irrespective of his formal education, Epstein was good with numbers and found work teaching calculus and piano at the Dalton School in Manhattan. Dalton is a private, co-educational day school on the Upper East Side between Park and Madison Avenues at 96th Street. His tenure there was short lived.
Thanks to the tutorial sessions he gave after school, his life took a sharp turn, more about that later. By the late nineteen eighties and throughout the nineties, Epstein turned into a jet setting financial advisor to Leslie H. Wexner. Wexner, founder and CEO of The Limited, recently re-named L Brands, became his longtime client and close friend. – page 2
On the same day, September 24, 2009, L.M. another victim, revealed in her deposition, “The way in which Epstein abused her beginning when she was 13 years old. According to L.M. Epstein touched her vagina with his fingers and vibrator.” She “was personally molested by Epstein more than 50 times and was paid $200 per underage girl she brought Epstein. She brought him more than seventy (70) underage girls.” L.M. told Epstein, “She did not want to bring him any more girls and he insisted she continue to bring him underage girls.”
A victim identified as E.W. was deposed May 6, 2010, E.W. explained that, “Beginning at age 14, Epstein paid me for touching my vagina. He inserted his fingers and used a vibrator. He also paid me $200 for each other underage female I brought him to molest.” E.W. claims she brought him between twenty (20) to thirty (30) underage females.” – page 44
In light of the number of testimonies, Brad Edwards determined that, “Epstein was able to access a large number of underage girls through a pyramid scheme in which he paid underage victims $200-$300 cash for every underage victim brought to him.” – 45
A Complaint filed on April 14, 2010 stated, “There is overwhelming proof that the number of underage girls molested by Epstein through his scheme was in the hundreds.” During his depositions taken to assess the accuracy of the claims, Epstein “Invoked the Fifth Amendment on questions about his daily abuse and molestation of children.”
Edwards and most of the attorneys representing the victims believed, “Epstein and his attorneys knew the seriousness of the criminal investigation against him and corresponded constantly with the United States Attorney’s Office in an attempt to avoid the filing of numerous federal felony offenses. In retrospect, it seems their efforts were successful. – page 46
In fact, one of Epstein’s better-known friends, Larry Summers, who traveled with Epstein, according to pilot logs, on his private jet between 1997 – 2005, was a very respected man in the United States.
Summers, former Treasury Secretary and Harvard University President around the same time of Epstein’s indictment had been reporting about the impending crisis. On September 23, 2007, just weeks before Epstein finalized the Non Prosecution Agreement, Summers reported to the Financial Times that, “Central to every policy discussion in response to a financial crisis or the prospect of a crisis is the connect of moral hazard.”
Given the high level conversations that took place behind closed doors in October 2007, I doubt the financial climate did not play a role during negotiations that led to Epstein’s final sweetheart Non Prosecution Agreement (NPA), signed October 27, 2007. – page 116
Conceivably, it was not just Epstein’s high-level banking and political connections that prevented him from a stiff federal prosecution. Perhaps, his generous donations to several Democratic Party leaders furthered his successful defense. Donations to Democrats included: Bill and Hillary Clinton, even after his indictment, Governor Bill Richardson, former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, and several others. According to media reports The Clinton Foundation received a $25,000 donation in 2006, after Epstein was charged with solicitation of prostitution with a minor. – page 118
The same scandal involving the Virgin islands Economic Development Corporation program was published by The Daily Caller: ”The (USVI) Governor, his attorney general and a number of USVI legislators also accepted bribes. The former U.S. Attorney General, Eric Holder, was aware that prosecutors and the elected officials were bribed and compromised but did not hold anyone accountable.”
Which brings me back to the Department of Justice and why it was possibly influenced by Epstein’s lawyers to allow testimony of only a few victims even though countless underage girls came forward against him. The court files made available to the public also showed how more than 100 minor girls courageously testified. Of these sworn statements, no more than two-dozen or so were allowed by the prosecutor’s office to come forward. – page 170
Several police reports confirmed that a number of underage girls who testified were transported across State borders. One victim in particular was instructed to give “massages” to Epstein’s influential friends. That one victim claims she met global leaders such as politicians, aristocrats, and businessmen. That story comes later.
It seems that in most criminal cases involving similar charges and a sizable number of victims, the allegations would have met, at the very least, the federal stipulations for a federal rather than a state prosecution.
The seemingly overwhelming evidence cannot explain why Epstein’s case did not qualify for prosecution under the federal law Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA). By any prosecutorial standard, a case of this magnitude should have been prosecuted under the federal bill, TVPA, enacted in Florida in 2000.
Over the years, I have sought out the opinion of many criminal attorneys, law enforcement officials, and immigration lawyers working on this subject. In the final analysis, by perhaps failing to protect the victims under TVPA, most attorneys agreed the Non Prosecution Agreement did a great disservice to the victims and all future of at-risk girls, including those living in or nearby Epstein’s communities. – page 177
Exhibit C, document #1603-3 filed on 4/8/11 titled the Undisputed Statement of Facts in the Epstein vs. Edwards Case pages 1 and 2 stated, “Defendant, Epstein, has a sexual preference for young girls… He repeatedly assaulted more than 40 young girls on numerous occasions between 2002 – 2005 in his mansion in Palm Beach, Florida.”…
“At the end of each massage the victims were paid between two hundred and one thousand dollars.” Several depositions revealed the assaults included vaginal penetration. Epstein abused dozens if not hundreds of girls over a period of several years.
During a sworn taped interview, recorded in Sarah Kellen’s Probable Cause Affidavit, the Arresting Officer, Joe Recarey, said that when he executed the search warrant at Epstein’s home he, “Located various phone message books. First names of girls, dates, and telephone numbers were on the copy of messages.”
Officer Recarey recognized some of the names and numbers of the girls since they had been interviewed at the station. “The messages included the time of day they called and Kellen’s signature at the bottom of the messages.” – page 31
Jeffrey Epstein was protected.
Jeffrey Epstein, Billionaire Pedophile, Goes Free
“For Epstein’s birthday one year, according to allegations in a civil suit, he was presented with three 12-year-old girls from France, who were molested then flown back to Europe the next day. These same civil complaints allege that young girls from South America, Europe, and the former Soviet republics, few of whom spoke English, were recruited for Esptein’s sexual pleasure. According to a former bookkeeper, a number of the girls worked for MC2, the modeling agency owned by Jean Luc Brunel, a longtime acquaintance and frequent guest of Epstein’s. Brunel received $1 million from the billionaire around the time he started the agency.

But the question remains: Did Epstein’s wealth and social connections—former President Bill Clinton; Prince Andrew; former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak; New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson; and former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers were just a few of the prominent passengers on his private jets—allow him to receive only a slap on the wrist for crimes that carry a mandatory 20-year sentence? Was he able, with his limitless assets and heavy-hitting lawyers—Alan Dershowitz, Gerald Lefcourt, Roy Black, Kenneth Starr, Guy Lewis, and Martin Weinberger among them—to escape equal justice?
Michael Reiter, the former Palm Beach police chief, certainly thinks so. He gave The Daily Beast exclusive access to the transcript of his nine-hour deposition for the victims’ civil suits, in which he explained how the case against Epstein was minimized by the State Attorney’s Office, then bargained down by the U.S. Department of Justice, all in an atmosphere of hardball legal tactics and social pressures so intense that Reiter became estranged from several colleagues. At the time, Reiter, who retired in 2009 and now runs his own security firm, objected both to Epstein’s plea agreement and to the flexible terms of his incarceration in the county jail rather than state prison. Asked during the deposition whether he thought Epstein received special treatment, he answered “yes.”

Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking directly ties into the international trafficking operations through Nadia Marcinkova so it’s very important to examine Bosnia and a whistleblower’s testimony.
“Human trafficking was really not a term that was widely used in 1999 and 2001. I think that most UN officers considered these girls to be simply prostitutes. But they were trafficked into Bosnia from other countries and coerced to perform sexual acts. Many knew they might end up in these conditions, but most had no real choice based on the economic conditions in their home countries and the desperation to survive.
Did the higher UN officials know about that?
They certainly did, because I turned my reports over to them along with internal affairs. This was well documented. Many high-level UN officials knew about this, right up to Jacques Klein, the head of the UN mission in Bosnia.
Was there any charge or trial against the replaced UN officers?
No. None. Charges were never brought because the investigations were never allowed to be completed. That was the reason I was terminated and fired from my job, because I was trying to investigate these cases. After that, I took DynCorp to court in the United Kingdom, and I won my case for wrongful termination.”
DynCorp…. (What our State Department didn’t want you to know either since they have numerous contracts with them)
“The first of several nasty shocks came before she’d even left: among the recruits at DynCorp’s training week in Texas was a man from Mississippi. He’d been to Bosnia before and had had such a good time he was going again. He told them all how scenic it was, adding, ‘and I know where you can get really nice 12- to 15-year-olds’. Bolkovac was baffled, believing she’d misheard…
“But I ended up working as much with women who were being trafficked and raped by soldiers and police officers sent to keep the peace.” Bolkovac uncovered a network of brothels and bars at which kidnapped women were enslaved to “service” peacekeepers. “This was a difficult time in my life,” said Bolkovac. “Not being able to know who to trust when you are working with police officers and UN officials … It was clear that the protection of the ‘good old boys’ club’ was a first priority.” – Kathryn Bolkovac (a police officer from Nebraska who went to work for Dyncorp of Virginia, to which peacekeeping police work in Bosnia had been outsourced)
The Whistleblower
State Department Predatory loaning in Bosnia explained…
Nor a Lender Be
Hillary Clinton, liberal virtue, and the cult of the microloan”
By Thomas Frank
“Hillary herself proudly recalls in her memoirs how the State Department rebuilt Afghanistan by handing out “more than 100,000 small personal loans” to the women of that country.
These are fine, sterling sentiments. They suffer, however, from one big problem: microlending doesn’t work. As strategies for ending poverty go, micro­lending appears to be among the worst that has ever been tried, just one step up from doing nothing at all to help the poor. In a carefully researched 2010 book called Why Doesn’t Micro­finance Work? the development consultant Milford Bateman debunks virtually every aspect of the microloan gospel. Microlending doesn’t empower women, Bateman writes—instead, it makes them into debtors. It encourages people to take up small, futile enterprises that have no chance of growing or employing others. Sometimes micro­borrowers don’t even start businesses at all; they just spend the loan on whatever. Even worse: the expert studies that originally sparked the micro­lending boom turn out, upon reexamination, to have been badly flawed.
Nearly every country where microlending has been an important development strategy for the past few decades, Bateman writes, is now a disaster zone of indebtedness and economic backwardness. When he tells us that “the increasing dominance of the microfinance model in developing countries is causally associated with their progressive deindustrialization and infantilization,” he is being polite. The terrible implication of the facts he has uncovered is that microlending achieves the opposite of development. Even Soviet-style Communism, with its frequently mocked Five Year Plans, worked better than this strategy does, as Bateman shows in a tragic look at microloan-saturated Bosnia.
No matter. The liberal class is unlikely to abandon its romance with micro­finance, for yet another reason: it is profitable. Lending to the poor, as every subprime-mortgage originator knows, can be a lucrative business. Mixed with international feminist self-righteousness, it is also a bulletproof business, immune to criticism. Naturally the international goodness community discovered that empowering poor women by lending to them at usurious interest rates was a fine thing all around.”
Microloaning/Predatory Loaning in Haiti has produced the same results and once again, UN peacekeeping forces are implicated in child sex trafficking operations again. This will continue until those responsible are held accountable and I’ll leave it with this last information from TrafficKing.
I spoke with Ralph Cioffi on a number of occasions about his case. On November 17, 2014, Cioffi said, “ I do not [know why Epstein was fired from Bear Stearns] and doubt Matt would. I never knew him at Bear. Never met him while he was an employee or even as an investor in the fund.” By early January of the following year, Cioffi warned me, “Epstein is an evil person. Makes the ‘root of all evils money phrase ring true. There were always rumors about what went on, on his jet when flying back and forth from Europe, Cioffi said. – page 114
An example of how his generous political donations might have worked in his favor, in the 2016 presidential election year, Epstein’s case exposed the dangerous challenges confronting campaign finance reform. Epstein’s campaign contributions to Democratic candidates from 1990-2012, excluding universities and other organizations with possible ties to a handful of politicians, exceeded hundreds of thousands of dollars.
His contributions between 1990-2012 included upwards of two thousand dollar donations to: Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee ($34,00), DCSS?Non-Fed Unincorp Association ($25, 00), Democratic National Committee ($20,00), Independence Party Federal Committee ($5,000), Liberal Party of New York ($5,000), Utah State Democratic Committee ($5,000), DNC Non-Federal Individual ($5,000), Campaign America Inc. ($4,000), Democratic Party of New Mexico ($1,000), Freedom Project ($1,000), Hillary Clinton ($21,000), Chuck Schumer ($22,000), Jeff Bingaman ($8,000) Daniel Robert Glickman ($4,000), John Kerry ($4,000), John Glen ($3,000), Joe Liberman ($3,000), Tom McMillan ($3,000), Daniel Patrick Moynihan ($2,000). – page 156
Speaking of Bear Sterns. Jeffrey Epstein was not the only Bear Sterns employee who used women to procure victims and this one if directly tied to Soros.
“She and Shon allegedly lured the models to New York by sending them messages on social media and promising them as much as $5,000 apiece to “meet and spend time with Rubin.”

Schnur now works as a defense lawyer based in Edison, New Jersey and graduated from Stern College for Women, an all-women’s branch of Yeshiva University.”

Epstein was not the only Bear Stearns associate into destroying girls linked to sex trafficking …

“Howie Rubin, 62, a former Bear Stearns trader” who worked for Soros. This case provides important evidence.

“I’m going to rape you like I rape my daughter,” Rubin allegedly barked during one of the purported beatings.

In one session, he beat one of the women’s “breasts so badly that her right implant flipped,” the papers state. The former Bear Stearns trader paid her $20,000 to repair the damage.

One plaintiff was tied up, gagged and shocked with a cattle prod in her groin before Rubin allegedly raped her, according to the filing.

Two unnamed female fixers and a lawyer abetted Rubin’s abusive sexual romps by coaxing women into signing NDAs.

The trio sought to “cover up Rubin’s sexual misconduct and criminal abuse of women and to serve as a cover for his wide-ranging human trafficking scheme,” wrote Balestriere.”

MC2 has an office in Miami and many of Epstein’s victims were from MC2.
“– The women are all models from Florida…
– Rubin came out of retirement in 2008 to work for Soros Fund Management”
It’s also an interesting coincidence that another Clinton friend has an affinity for photographs of teenagers and children.
Washington Post removed this article about Podesta. Pay attention to what the media removes. Podesta, Soros, Epstein, and the Clinton’s. Most of the “art” images have since been removed though.

“At political events, there’s an inevitable awkwardness,” former Clinton administration official Sally Katzen said at a Women’s Campaign Fund dinner at the Podestas’ home this summer. “The art is an ice-breaker. It puts people at ease.”

Not always. Folks attending a house tour in the Lake Barcroft neighborhood in Falls Church earlier this year got an eyeful when they walked into a bedroom at the Podesta residence hung with multiple color pictures by Katy Grannan, a photographer known for documentary-style pictures of naked teenagers in their parents’ suburban homes.”

“They were horrified,” Heather recalls, a grin spreading across her face….

Heather’s first taste of Tony’s art came on their first date, in the fall of 2001, when they stopped at his house to pick up his car before heading to the opera. Passing some of the quirkier selections, Heather recalls Tony remarking, “I don’t know why it is, but I have artworks where the women have no heads.” The next day, she sent him a note signed, “Woman with a head.”

Podesta has something in common with Jeffrey Epstein besides just the Clintons. Investigators found naked pictures of 12 – 15 year-old victims all over his walls in the bedrooms and some hallways in his home. The photos were utilized by Palm Springs police to build their case against Epstein. They were evidence that supported the 100+ victims who came forward. (From Jane Doe #2 to Jane Doe #102) They were his trophies and many were from MC2. Ghislaine was Epstein’s partner and she procured many teenage girls for him including Jane Doe # 102 when she was 14. Jane Doe #102 was a victim turned procurer who was trained by Ghislaine and paid to bring in additional 12-15 year-old victims to Epstein and his friends.
Market Origins
Munitions Manufacturing and the Origins of Sex Trafficking by IG Farben.

Nazi Sex Slaves
New Exhibition Documents Forced Prostitution in Concentration Camps

Child and human sex trafficking was operated by the military contractor DynCorp hired by State Department for regime change in targeted nations to acquire resources for the production of munitions in all their forms (from bomb to pill). It’s important to understand who created and managed all of these and market origins.

“Between 300 and 400 women were forced to become sex workers in brothels in ten concentration camps, including Auschwitz, Dachau, Buchenwald and Sachsenhausen. A visit to a brothel, known as a “special barrack,” was part of a system of incentives intended to boost the productivity of concentration camp slave laborers. These bonuses were not, however, extended to every group of inmates — Jews in particular were excluded. The idea for the forced prostitution came from Heinrich Himmler himself, as a letter from the SS leader on display in the exhibition shows.

Among the around 200 exhibits are index cards where the prisoners, who came mostly from the Ravensbrück concentration camp, are identified as “brothel women,” documents about the bureaucratic organization of the sexual slavery, and audio recordings of male inmates talking about their visits to the brothels. Photos are on the whole not included in the exhibition “to avoid possible voyeuristic expectations,” the spokesperson of the Foundation of Brandenburg Memorials, Horst Seferens explained.

Also on display are vouchers which male inmates received from the SS, entitling them to a visit to the brothels. “The brothels were supposed to function as an incentive to increase the productivity of the prisoners in the armaments industry,” Seferens said.


One other roll these sex slaves provided for IG Farben was as research subjects for their products.

The “Attacking the Devil” documentary covered the investigative journalism “Insight” team created by Harold Evans at the Sunday Times investigating Thalidomide. They discovered thalidomide origins in Nazi IG Farben concentration camps and interviewed some of the women guards. Pregnant women were given pills and injections in the concentration camps and gave birth to babies with horrific malformations consistent with the thalidomide child victims in the U.K. This was evidence that they were fully aware of biological harm of the repackaged munition as a “safe” pharmaceutical prior to its release. The Sunday Times was bought out by Rupert Murdoch and he “purged” the Insight investigative journalism team investigating the origins of thalidomide. Harold Evans resigned in protest. (Should also note here that Harvey Weinstein was the producer of the “Attacking the Devil” documentary.)

The sex slaves who became pregnant were transferred to the camps where IG Farben conducted their clinical trials and thalidomide was one of their nerve gas pharmaceutical products. It had the precision of sniper fire on a developing infant’s epigenome.

“Also in the first three months of the CIA’s existence, the National Security Council issued Directive No. 3, dealing specifically with the “production of intelligence and the coordination of intelligence activities within the intelligence community.” The National Security Council wanted to know who was producing what intelligence and how that information was being coordinated among agencies. In the opinion of the CIA, “the link between scientific planning and military research on a national scale did not hitherto exist.” The result was the creation of the Scientific Intelligence Committee (SIC), chaired by the CIA and with members from the army, the navy, the air force, the State Department, and the Atomic Energy Commission. “Very early in its existence the SIC undertook to define scientific intelligence, delineate areas of particular interest and establish committees to handle these areas,” wrote SIC chairman Dr. Karl Weber, in a CIA monograph that remained classified until September 2008. “Priority was accorded to atomic energy, biological warfare, chemical warfare, electronic warfare, guided missiles, aircraft, undersea warfare and medicine” –every area involving Operation Paperclip scientists. Each scientific intelligence subcommittees were created, one for each area of warfare.” – Operation Paperclip: The Secret Intelligence Program to Bring Nazi Scientists to America (Page 315.)

President Kennedy fired CIA director Allen Dulles.

“Splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it into the winds.” – President Kennedy

Listen carefully to the words of President John F. Kennedy in his speech before the American Newspaper Publishers Association.

On August 1, 1962, Kennedy addressed the nation to warn them about thalidomide. He did not know that Operation Paperclip scientist Otto Ambros oversaw the creation of thalidomide at Auschwitz and was a client of the Sullivan and Cromwell law firm of CIA director Allen Dulles. Kennedy was also unaware that Otto Ambros was Hilter’s Director of Chemical Weapons and that thalidomide was a re-packaged chemical weapon in his chemical weapons program.

It is far from the last of the Nazi secrets and since sarin is all over the news, here’s what its inventor also contributed to.

“In 1980 a Grunenthal technician called Christian Wagemann wore an anti-fascist badge to work. He was sacked – and effectively blacklisted in the German pharma industry. He is now a school cook.

Wagemann’s dismissal letter was signed by Otto Ambros, then chairman of the firm’s advisory board and until his death in 1990 a respected figure in the global pharmaceutical business. Ambros also happened to be Hitler’s chief chemical weapons expert and a convicted war criminal.

He helped invent the deadly Sarin nerve gas and ran a section of Auschwitz where thousands of slave workers died. He reputedly killed prisoners to demonstrate the gas and in 1941 wrote that his “dear friendship with the SS is proving very beneficial.” Sacking someone for anti-fascist views was no problem.

Ambros was too valuable a Nazi to be executed for war crimes. So valuable, he later briefed Britain and the United States on nerve gas – and was retained by the British firm Distillers, a relationship that might explain why it trusted hollow assurances the “new” drug was safe.”


Kennedy warned the US public and his warning fell on deafened ears.

Operation Paperclip by Annie Jacobson. (Excerpts regarding Hitler’s Chemists – Otto Ambros)

Hitler’s Chemists

Otto Ambros

Otto Ambros was a fastidious man. His calculations were exact, his words carefully chosen, his fingernails always manicured. He wore his hair neatly oiled and parted. In addition to being Hitler’s favorite chemist, Ambros was the manager of IG Farben’s synthetic rubber and fuel factory at Aushwitz.

page 21

“The concentration camp already existing with approximately 7000 prisoners is to be expanded.” Santo noted in his official company report. For Ambros, Farben’s arrangement with the SS regarding slave laborers remained vague; Ambros sought clarity. “It is therefore necessary to open negotiations with the Reich Leader SS [Himmler] as soon as possible to discuss necessary measures with him,” Ambros wrote in his official company report. The two men had a decades-old relationship; Heinrich Himmler and Otto Ambros had known one another since grade school. Ambros could make Himmler see eye-to-eye with him on the benefits that Auschwitz offered to both Farben and the SS. – Operation Paperclip. page 153.

Otto Ambros was key to making the Buna factory a success. With his knowledge of synthetic rubber and his managerial experience–he also ran Farben’s secret nerve gas production facilities–there was no better man than Otto Ambros for the Auschwitz job….
Major Tilley waited at Dustin for the return of Tarr and Ambros. It was now clear to him that there was no single individual more important to Hitler’s chemical weapons program than Otto Ambros had been. Ambros was in charge of chemical weapons at Gendorf and Dyhernfurth, and he was the manager of the Buna factory at Auschwitz. From interviewing various Farben chemists held at Dustbin, Tilley had also learned that the gas used to murder millions of people at Auschwitz and other concentration camps, Zyklon B, and it was sold to the Reich by an IG Farben company. In one of these interviews, Tilley asked IG Farben board member Baron Georg von Schnitzler if Otto Ambros knew that Farben chemicals were being used to murder people.

“You said yesterday that a [Farben employee] ‘alluded’ to you that the poisonous gasses [sic] and the chemicals manufactured by IG Farben were being used for the murder of human beings held in concentration camps,” Major Tilley reminded von Schnitzler in their interview
“So I understood him,” von Schnitzler replied.
“Didn’t you question those employees of yours further in regard to the use of these gases?”
“They knew it was being used for this purpose,” von Schnitzler said
von Schnitzler confessed, “I asked [the Farben employee] is it known to you and Ambros and other directors in Auschwitz that the gases and chemicals are being used to murder people?”
“What did he say?” asked Major Tilley.
“Yes; it is known to all the IG directors in Auschwitz,” von Schnitzer said.

Few men were as important to IG Farben during the war than Otto Ambros had been. IG Farben began first producing synthetic rubber in 1935, naming it Buna after its primary component, butadiene…. Otto Ambros poured over maps of this region, called the Upper Silesia, in search of a Buna factory site, he found what he was looking for. The production of synthetic rubber required four things: water, flat land, good railway connections, and an abundance of laborers. Auschwitz had all four. Three rivers met in Auschwitz, the Sola, the Vistula, and the Przemsza, with a water flow of 525,000 cubic feet per hour. The land was flat and sixty-five feet above the waterline, making it safe from floodwaters. The railway connections were sound. But the most important was the labor issue. The concentration camp next door could provide an endless labor supply because the men were cheap and could be worked to death. For Farben, the use of slave labor supply could take the company to levels of economic prowess previously unexplored.

It was only a matter of time before an American chemical company would learn of the army’s interest in a whole new field of chemical weapons. An American chemist, Dr. Wilhelm Hirschkind, was in Germany at this same time. Dr. Hirschkind was conducting a survey of the German chemical industry for the U.S. Chemical Warfare Service while on temporarily leave from Dow Chemical Company. Dr. Hirschkind had spent several months inspecting IG Farben plants in the U.S. and British zones and now he was in Heidelberg, hoping to meet Ambros. Lieutenant Colonel Tarr reached out to Colonel Weiss, the French commander in charge of IG Farben’s chemical plant in Ludwigshafen, and a meeting was arranged.

On July 28, 1945, Dr. Hirschkind met with Ambros and Lieutenant Colonel Tarr in Heidelberg. Ambros brought his wartime deputy with him to the meeting, the Farben chemist Jurgen von Klenck. It was von Klenck who, in the final months of the war, had helped Ambros destroy evidence, hide documents, and disguise the Farben factory in Gendorf so that it appeared to produce soap, not chemical weapons. Jurgen von Klenck was initially detained at Dustbin but later released. The Heidelberg meetings lasted several days. When Dr. Wilhelm Hirschkind left, he had these words for Ambros: “I would look forward after the conclusion of the peace treaty [to] continuing our relations [in my position] as a representative of Dow.”

Only later did FIAT interrogators learn about this meeting. Major Tilley’s suspicions were now confirmed. A group inside the U.S. Chemical Warfare Service, including his former partner, Lieutenant Colonel Tarr, did indeed have an ulterior motive that ran counter to the motives of CIOS, FIAT, and the United Nations War Crimes Commission. Tilley’s superior at Dustbin, Major Wilson, confirmed this dark and disturbing truth in a classified military intelligence report on the Ambros affair. “It is believed that the conflict between FIAT… and LT-Col Tarr was due to the latter’s wish to use Ambros for industrial chemical purposes” back in the United States.”

“All documents regarding the Ambros affair would remain classified for the next forty years, until August of 1985. That an officer of the U.S. Chemical Warfare Service, Lieutenant Colonel Tarr, had sheltered a wanted war criminal from capture in the aftermath of the German surrender was damning. That this officer was also participating in meetings with the fugitive and a representative from the Dow Chemical Company was scandalous.”

page 157 – 159

By 1964, Ambros had been a free man for thirteen years. He was an extremely wealthy, successful businessman. He socialized in Berlin among the captains of industry and the professional elite. When the Frankfurt Auschwitz trial started, he was a board member of numerous major corporations in Germany, including AEG (Allgemeine Elekrizitats Gesellschaft), Germany’s General Electric; Hibernia Mining Company; and SKW (Suddeutsche Kalkstickstoff-Werke AG), a chemical company.

page 415 – 416

In separate letters to Finance Minister Ludger Westrick and Deputy Finance Minister Dr. Dollinger, a new secret was revealed, though Ambros promised not to make public a piece of the information they shared. “Concerning the firms abroad where I am a permanent co-worker advisor,” Ambros wrote, “I won’t name them [publicly] because I don’t want to tip off any journalists who might cause trouble with my friends. You know about W.R. Grace in New York… and I hope I can stay with Hibernia Company. Concerning the firms in Israel,” Ambros wrote, “stating their names publicly would be very embarrassing because they are [run by] very public, well-respected persons in public positions that have actually been at my home and are aware of my position, how I behaved during the Reich, and they accept this.”

The “well-respected” public figures in Israel to whom Ambros referred have never been revealed. That Ambros also had worked for the American company W.R Grace would take decades to come to light. When it did, in the early 1980s, the public would also learn that Otto Ambros worked as a consultant for the U.S. Department of Energy, formerly the Atomic Energy Commission, “to develop and operate a plant for the hydrogenation of coal in a scale of 4 million tons/year at the former IG Farben industry.” That a convicted war criminal had been hired by the Department of Energy sparked indignation, and congressmen and journalists sought further details about Ambros’s U.S. government contract. In a statement to the press, the Department of Energy insisted that the paperwork had been lost…

Letters on White House stationary reveal that Deputy National Security Adviser James W. Nance briefed Reagan about how it was that the U.S. government could have hired Otto Ambros. Nance’s argument to the president was that many others hired him. “Dr. Ambros had contracts with numerous officials from Allied countries,” wrote Nance. “Dr. Ambros was a consultant to companies such as Distillers Limited of England; Pechiney, the French chemical giant; and Dow Europe of Switzerland. He was also the chairman of Knoll, a pharmaceutical subsidiary of the well known chemical corporation BASF.” President Reagan requested further information from the Department of Energy on its Ambros contract. Nance told the president, “The DOE and/or ERDA [The Energy Research and Development Administration] do not have records that would answer the questions you asked in the detail you requested. However, with Ambros’ involvement in the company shown and his special knowledge in hydrogenation of coal, we know there were productive contacts between Dr. Ambros and U.S. energy officials.” Even the president of the United States could not get complete information about an Operation Paperclip legacy.

In the midst of the scandal, a reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle telephoned Ambros at his home in Mannheim, Germany, and asked Ambros about his 1948 conviction at Nuremberg for mass murder and slavery.

“That happened a very long time ago,” Ambros told the reporter. “It involved Jews. We do not think about it anymore.”

Pages 418 – 419

In the decades since Operation Paperclip ended, new facts continue to come to light. In 2008, previously unreported information about Otto Ambros emerged, serving as a reminder that the story of what lies hidden behind America’s Nazi scientist program in to complete.

A group of medical doctors and researchers in England, working on behalf of an organization called the Thalidomide Trust, believe they have tied the wartime work of IG Farben and Otto Ambros to the thalidomide tragedy of the late 1950s and early 1960s. After Ambros was released from Landsberg Prison, he worked as an economic consultant to German chancellor Konrad Adenauer and to the industrial magnate Friedrich Flick, the richest person in Germany during the Cold War. Like Ambros, Flick had been tried and convicted at Nuremberg, then released early by John J. McCloy.

In the late 1950s, Ambros was also elected chairman of the advisory committee for a German company called Chemie Grunenthal. Grunenthal was about to market a new tranquilizer that promised pregnant women relief from morning sickness. The drug, called thalidomide, was going to be sold under the brand name Contergan. Otto Ambros served on the board of directors of Grunenthal. In the late 1950s, very few people knew that Grunenthal was a safe haven for many Nazis , including Dr. Ernst-Gunther Schenck, the inspector of nutrition for the SS, and Dr. HeinzBaumkotter, an SS captain (Hauptsturmfuhrer) and the chief concentration camp doctor in Mauthausen, Natweiler-Struthof, and Sachsenhausen concentration camps.

Ten months before Grunenthal’s public release of thalidomide, the wife of a Grunenthal employee, who took the drug to combat morning sickness, gave birth to a baby without ears. No one linked the birth defect to the drug, and thalidomide was released by the company. After several months on the market, 1959, Grunenthal received its first reports that thalidomide caused polyneuropathy, or nerve damage, in the hands and feet of elderly people who took the drug. The drug’s over-the-counter status was changed so that it now required a prescription. Still, thalidomide was marketed aggressively in forty-sex countries with a label that stated it could be “given with complete safety to pregnant women and nursing mothers without any adverse effect on mother and child.” Instead, the drug resulted in more than ten thousand mothers giving birth to babies with terrible deformities, creating the most horrific pharmaceutical disaster in the history of modern medicine. Many of the children were born without ears, arms, or legs and with reptilian, flipperlike appendages in place of healthy limbs.

The origins of thalidomide were never accounted for. Grunenthal had always maintained that it lost its documents that showed where and when the first human trials were conducted on the drug. Then, in 2008, the Thalidomide Trust, in England, headed by Dr. Martin Johnson, located a group of Nazi-era documents that produced a link between thalidomide and the drugs researched and developed by IG Farben chemists during the war. Dr. Johnson points out that Grunenthal’s 1954 patents for thalidomide cryptically state that human trials had already been completed, but the company says it cannot offer that data because it was lost, ostensibly during the war. “The patents suggest that thalidomide was probably one of a number of products developed at Dyhernfurth or Auschwitz-Monowitz under the leadership of Otto Ambros in the course of nerve gas research,” Dr. Johnson says.

The Thalidomide Trust also links Paperclip scientist Richard Kuhn to the medical tragedy, “Kuhn worked with a wide range of chemicals in his nerve gas research, and in his antidote research we know he used Antergan, which we are fairly sure was a ‘sister drug’ to Contergan,” the brand name for thalidomide, Dr. Johnson explains.

In 2005, Kuhn experienced a posthumous fall of grace when the society of German Chemists (Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker, GDCh) announced it would no longer award its once-prestigious Richard Kuhn Medal in his name. Nazi-era documents on Kuhn had been brought to the society’s attention, revealing that in “the spring of 1943 Kuhn asked the secretary-general of the KWS [Kaiser Wilhelm Society], Ernst Telschow, to support his search for the brains of ‘young and healthy men,’ presumably for nerve gas research.” The Society of German Chemists maintains that “the sources indicate that these brains were most likely taken from execution victims,” and that ‘[d]espite his scientific achievements, [Richard] Kuhn is not suitable to serve as a role model, and eponym for an important award, mainly due to his conduct towards Jewish colleagues.”

It seems that the legacy of Hitler’s chemists has yet to be fully unveiled. Because so many of these German scientists were seen as assets to the U.S. Army Chemical Corps’ nerve agent programs, and were thus wanted as participants in Operation Paperclip, secret deals were made, and the many documents pertaining to these arrangements were classified.
