Who is Ghislaine Maxwell? – YouTube
Like so many other things, all this Ghislaine Maxwell buzz would be a lot more interesting without all the dumbass partisan angles people are putting on it. People fixate on the Trump angle or the Clintons angle when it’s clear they’ve all been manipulated by forces that are far more powerful than they are.
The real story is still the fact that opaque and unaccountable intelligence agencies use child sex slavery to blackmail powerful world leaders and manipulate our society. It’s weird that people focus anywhere else.
Anyway it’s not like this is going to “bring down” anyone with real power. Even if Ghislaine survives, don’t get your hopes up that her arrest will affect elite power structures in any meaningful way. The FBI is the swamp. The DOJ is the swamp. The swamp will never drain the swamp.
Maxwell, like Epstein, was never the lead player in the sexual blackmail op. There is at this time no reason to believe anyone’s coming for the intelligence operatives or their oligarchic allies who were actually running the thing.
In a society that is dominated by violent extremists, the “moderate” mainstream ideology is actually extremism and the sane path toward stability looks radical. When war, oppression, exploitation and ecocide are the status quo, those who just want health and harmony are painted as extremists.
While mainstream “centrists” will acknowledge that our current way of doing things is unsustainable, they resist making meaningful change. This is because of a cognitive glitch humans have called status quo bias, which can cause us to fallaciously equate change with danger.
Remember when you were a kid and you’d get stuck up a tree, but you couldn’t bring yourself to climb down because clinging to the swaying branches felt safe compared to the risk of descending? You’d be clinging to the high branches and your mother would call up “Well you can’t stay there!” And you knew she was right but the prospect of climbing down was terrifying.
That’s a very concrete example of status quo bias. Change is needed, but it’s so scary. That’s where we’re at right now. That’s the only thing keeping so-called “centrism” going.
These “centrists” maintain their ideology because we live in increasingly scary times,

Update (1455ET): MSNBC’s Ayman Mohyeldin reports that multiple federal law enforcement officials say that depending on what the judge overseeing today’s detention & removal hearing & the Bureau of Prisons determine, Ghislaine Maxwell could be housed at MCC in New York – the same jail where Jeffrey Epstein killed himself.
“We will be seeking detention,” Acting U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss in Manhattan said in a press conference announcing charges. Prosecutors said Maxwell helped Epstein entice girls as young as 14 into sex from 1994 through 1997, then lied about it under oath in 2016.
As Bloomberg adds, unless the judge in New Hampshire releases her on bail, “Maxwell will either be held overnight in a local jail there or transported immediately back to New York, said Jack Donson, a consultant who formerly worked for the federal Bureau of Prisons. In New York, she would likely be transferred to one of two federal lockups, the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Lower Manhattan or the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn.“
Of course, Manhattan’s MCC is where Epstein was found dead in his cell in August after committing “suicide” by hanging himself using his bed sheets. How he was permitted to do so remains a mystery. Two MCC guards are facing charges for falsifying records and failing to check on inmates in the hours before Epstein’s death. Both have pleaded not guilty. In May, the Manhattan jail also faced criticism after a judge-ordered inspection found it was failing to adequately protect inmates from the coronavirus.
Asked if any special precautions will be taken to ensure Maxwell’s safety in custody, Strauss said: “As you know, we are sensitive to that concern and certainly we’ll be in dialogue with the Bureau of Prisons about it.”
Which probably means that Ghislaine has days left, if not hours, left to live.
Donson added it was possible federal officials might choose to hold Maxwell elsewhere to avoid press attention. “Maybe they’ll want to get her out of New York entirely,” he said. Wherever she ends up, Maxwell will be evaluated for suicide or other risks, he added.
Meanwhile, @Techno_Fog notes some new info from the US Detention Memo:
1) The grand jury returned the indictment on 6/29/20
2) Maxwell has 15+ bank accounts.
