Epstein Tapes Emerge: Dead Pedophile Describes His Lifestyle In Unearthed Recordings

In 2003, Jeffrey Epstein sat for five hours to give a rare interview with journalist David Bank, offering his thoughts on subjects ranging from mathematics, to exorbitant wealth, to the important of prenuptial agreements.

After Epstein’s arrest on July 6, Bank dug out the tapes and listened to them. The financier was, Bank recalled, friendly and gracious, eager to pontificate about many things but cagey about exactly what he did in his role as financial adviser to Leslie Wexner, the billionaire he met in Palm Beach in the 1980s and who opened doors for him in business and finance and beyond. –Bloomberg
Having obtained copies of the interview, Bloomberg‘s Tom Metcalf offers select clips of the interview from a”sling-back chair on his private Carribean island.”
“But why speak here, in a gazebo steps from the crystal-blue sea, rather than up in the grand main house?
“Too many girls,” Epstein said. And with that, the tape began to roll.”
I realize what I am. I’m very comfortable in my own skin. I’m not a helicopter pilot. What I’m really free to do is I feel free to follow my own personality. As we discussed yesterday, I can’t be totally wacko in what I do. It affects lots of other people who will get angry with what I do because then it affects me again. But on my own island or on my own ranch, I can think the thoughts I want to think. I can do the work I want to do and I’m free to explore as I see fit.
Epstein also discussed his former clients and what he did for them, saying that he handled money for “Less than 10.
More than four” individuals. He also went into some detail on how he counseled Victoria’s Secret head honcho Les Wexner. “I don’t tell him what sweaters to buy, he doesn’t tell me when to buy or sell stock.”
People would always call me and say, could you come look at my problems? Could you come see my situation and tell me what you think. And I started J. Epstein & Co. I think in 1982 or 1983. And I said I would only take you if you had a billion dollars or more.
Epstein says he want to “rough schools,” and never earned a college degree. Still, the prestigious Dalton School on Manhattan’s Upper East Side still hired him.
“It attracted me because I thought it would be a different class of students I hadn’t come across before,” said Epstein, who said that “this was going to be the flip side” to his meager beginnings on blue-collar Coney Island.
I saw lots of people doing lots of hard work and hard work didn’t translate into success either.
It wasn’t what you knew or how hard you worked. In fact, the people who were doing construction on Telegraph Avenue at that time were, I remember seeing some people, you know, coming in at seven o’clock in the morning and spending 12 hours working and look they still were neither happy or successful. So it’s not about what you know. And what I learned from Dalton later, lots of it in fact turns out to, not necessarily who you knew, but who you came in contact with.
Epstein then goes into his time at Bear Stearns, whose CEO Alan “Ace” Greenberg he met through his job at Dalton. Greenberg summoned Epstein to his office and hired him on the spot.
I started at Bear Stearns in 1976. Bear Stearns never had any training program. There was no course to begin. Alan Greenberg said he wanted me to learn each area of the business. So he thought the best place for me to start would be on the floor of the American Stock Exchange and then later move up to the trading desk and learn all the different areas of the firm including the margin department. He was amazing.
Epstein said his ability to comprehend options pricing allowed him to quickly rise through the ranks at Bear Stearns – resulting in his temporary role as a limited partner.
The way I saw it was physics, which was in fact based on a fixed number of rules and you did experiments in physics that couldn’t violate those rules and if your experiment worked you hit the target.
Finance seemed to be a different metaphor for the same processes but when you hit your target, you were able to fly first class to Paris.
What the tapes don’t reveal is how Epstein got so rich.
“At the time of his arrest on federal charges that he molested and exploited dozens of teenage girls, he was worth more than $500 million, according to a financial disclosure his lawyers filed in an unsuccessful request for bail,” reports Metcalf.
Making money is my priority for how I think about things.
Money itself and how people make money and how money is made in different ways. So takeovers were a way to make money. Commodity trading, was a way to make money. To me the new one is currencies.
According to the report:
At Dalton, he said, he earned less than $20,000 a year.
He made a “comfortable living,” during his five years at Bear Stearns. He set up J Epstein & Co. in New York in the early 1980s, later changing the name to Financial Trust Co. and moving its headquarters to the U.S. Virgin Islands. He bought Little St. James for $7.95 million in 1998 and nearby Great St. James in 2016 for $22.5 million. Just the property taxes on his homes in New York, New Mexico and Florida came to more than $600,000 last year.
As a money manager, Epstein earned fees for investment advice, tax services and estate planning.
He bragged about how his decision to charge flat fees freed him from the pressure of incessant trading and differentiated him from stock brokers in an era when trading was commission based. –Bloomberg
“Having personal staff is the first great luxury,” said Epstein – however he also opined on wealth being a magnet for fraudsters.
“My concern is that people can make spurious allegations all the time,” said Epstein, adding “The idea is if nothing else he’ll buy me off. I’ll attack his reputation and he’ll buy me off.”
One of the biggest issues is if you have too much money most likely you won’t miss it if some is taken from you.
That’s very important, which is in fact security concerns—and this is the reason I’ve always been private and wisely so—is as you become known as a philanthropist or in giving away money then you become the perfect victim of frauds and identity theft.
So what made Epstein tick? He said he loved music, and had played piano since the age of five. He also expounded on his love of mathematics and the sciences, describing the inner workings of the brain and evolutionary dynamics.
Epstein: I was always very good at mathematics.
Reporter: What made you interested in it? Epstein: It was solving puzzles. It’s a strange feeling when you get the right answer to a puzzle. That leads to a later discussion about why people are so excited about puzzle solving and why is the brain itself both a predictor of things and an inherent puzzle solver. In fact, I hate to sort of jump again to more brain things but the idea of people receive pleasure when they get the right answer to a puzzle and the question is when you say pleasure, does that mean there’s a bit of dopamine released in the brain? What are the real mechanics? What’s going on in someone’s head when they have what Duchamp referred to as the Aha! moment.
According to Epstein, he’d sell any investment if it lost more than 10%.
“If I lose $10 million of a $100 million I’m out. Under no circumstances am I going to lose more than 10% of my investments,” he said, adding “I always want to have enough money to stay in the game.”
There was a book I read when I first started on Wall Street which was called “Sell is a Four Letter Word,” which meant that people get attached to things. They refuse to sell, or they refuse to resign, and they make up lots of reasons why that they’re sticking around. Whether it be in relationships with other people, or with stocks. People have stocks that go down and they tell themselves I know I should have sold then, but I can’t sell now.
Lastly, Epstein talks about his relationship with JP Morgan Chase – a bank which severed ties with the millionaire pedophile as his downward spiral picked up speed.
JPMorgan is probably the best private bankers in the world. The head of private banking you should talk to—Jes Staley. They know they can call up and ask me, you know, there’s an opportunity here and might take a very large sum of money, $100 million or more, whatever the number may be. And I can give them an answer by the end of the telephone call.
Meanwhile – notwithstanding new recordings emerging, this appears to be the last we’ll hear from Epstein, as dead pedophiles tell no tales.

Jeffrey Epstein’s Former Live-In Bodyguard Believes ‘Somebody Helped Him’ Kill Himself

This article was sourced from The Gateway Pundit
Jeffrey Epstein’s former live-in bodyguard Igor Zinoviev said in an interview with New York Magazine that he believes Epstein had help killing himself while in custody at the federal Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan last Saturday.
Epstein’s death has many inconsistencies, as detailed by this TGP report. A leak of Epstein’s autopsy claims broken bones in Epstein’s neck consistent–but not conclusive–with homicide by strangulation. Epstein was reportedly found with a bedsheet tied to a bunk bed wrapped around his neck.
Zinoviez, a former UFC fighter, said he lived in Epstein’s Palm Beach house for “five or six years” and worked as his bodyguard, personal trainer and driver.
The interview with M.
L. Nestel was contentious at times with Zinoviev disputing quotes from an unpublished interview he had done four years ago with Nestel.
It was four years ago. You may not remember what you told me. I kept very good notes of what you and I said. It must come across as very harsh. But it’s the truth. I’m happy to understand a little better. He’s not alive. You don’t have anything to be afraid of anymore.
I’m not afraid. Beyond that just he is dead. I don’t want anything to be uncorrect. There’s too much shit in here, you know, already. He’s dead and just like, freaking people, just leave him alone.
Hold on. When did you find out he died?
Saturday or Sunday or whenever.
What did you think when you found that out?
What did I think?
Are you sure you want to hear what I am going to think?
Somebody helped him to do that.
You think somebody helped him kill himself?
Okay. Why?
Listen, you know, that’s going a little too deep.
End excerpt. Please read the complete interview at this link.
Extract from Zinoviev’s profile from the MMA Hall of Fame entry:
One of the first mixed martial arts competitors from Russia, Igor Zinoviev helped blaze the trail for future Eastern European and Russia fighters. As a former Russian Special Forces Operator and Policeman, Igor was trained in a variety of martial arts, most notably Sambo.
Igor Zinoviev made his MMA debut at Extreme Fighting 1 on November 18, 1995…
…After his career-ending injury, Igor worked as a personal trainer and bodyguard. In 2007, he was the head coach for Chicago Red Bears of the short-lived International Fight League. Zinoviev continues to train fighters to this day.

MYSTERY: Epstein’s Body Claimed by Unidentified ‘Associate’

Jeffrey Epstein
Jeffrey Epstein’s body was claimed from the New York City medical examiner’s office by an unidentified ‘associate.

NBC News reported:
Jeffrey Epstein’s body has been claimed from the New York City medical examiner’s office, a source close to the investigation told NBC News on Wednesday.
The person who claimed Epstein’s body was described only as an “Epstein associate.”
Jeffrey Epstein was reportedly found hanging in his jail cell from his bunk bed with a prison bedsheet wrapped around his head, according to a law enforcement source who spoke to the New York Post.
Epstein, who is 6 feet tall, reportedly secured the bedsheet to the top bunk bed and wrapped the sheet around his neck.
Many close to Epstein fear he was murdered and CBS News, citing an unnamed source, also reported on Tuesday that “shrieking and shouting” was heard coming from Epstein’s cell on the morning of his death. The source also said they heard corrections officers saying “breathe, Epstein, breathe,” while trying to revive him.
Epstein’s autopsy showed he had broken neck bones which is common in homicide by strangulation.
Among the broken bones in Epstein’s neck was the hyoid bone which can be broken during a hanging if the individual is older, however it is more common in a homicide by strangulation, according to forensics experts.

Dr. Marc Siegel “More Suspicious Than Ever” Epstein Was Murdered

This article was sourced from InfoWars
Dr. Marc Siegel says that in the aftermath of Jeffrey Epstein’s autopsy results being revealed, he is “more suspicious than ever” that the sex trafficker was murdered.
“The hyoid bone in the neck being fractured and other fractures in the neck, make it more likely, and again, this is a percentage call, more likely that it was a homicide than a suicide,” Siegel told Fox News.
Siegel went on to say, “I am now more suspicious than ever that this could be a homicide.”

The doctor made the point that if someone had been attacked, there would be signs of such an attack on the body and that this information remains unknown.
“If someone holds you down and strangles you, you see evidence on the body – bruises….that question will be answered.”
Siegel also expressed his amazement that Epstein would be taken off suicide watch given the fact that he supposedly attempted suicide just weeks before and was placed in an unobserved room where there were bed sheets that could be used for a hanging.
“This situation smells,” he concluded.
As the Washington Post reported earlier, Epstein’s injuries “are more common in victims of homicide by strangulation” according to experts.
