Big Brother is Suicide Watching You

OH MY GOD! Pedophile billionaire (and pimp to the powerful) Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his jail cell of apparent "suicide!" Who could have possibly predicted this?!

Well, pretty much everyone. Since the day Epstein was tossed in the hoosegow, his impending "suicide" has been the source of endless jokes and memes. After all, the guy had damning information about a lot of very powerful people...people who didn't want Epstein to start naming names in an effort to reduce his prison sentence.

Topping the list of those who could conceivably be harmed by Epstein's testimony were the Clintons, who have so much experience at cleaning up unwanted messes that the term "Arkancide" is widely accepted by medical examiners as an official cause of death. Bill Clinton is said to have repeatedly flown on Epstein's private jet, the "Lolita Express," to what the locals called "Orgy Island" or "Pedophile Island." In some instances, Bill Clinton gave the Secret Service the slip before boarding the jet so he could spend time on the island without witnesses. Which, in retrospect, may be fortunate for those Secret Service agents.

Of course, it's possible that a despondent Jeffrey Epstein really did decide to take his own life, and managed to do so using makeshift materials which shouldn't have been in his possession only days after being taken off of suicide watch. And it's possible that it was only a coincidence that he was assigned to a cell with no cellmate despite it being a violation of standard procedure. And that, by greater coincidence, the 24 hour security cameras weren't pointed into Epstein's cell, but only aimed at the hallway outside. And, by really wild coincidence, that Epstein chose to make his move at the exact time that the two guards who were supposed to be regularly checking on him decided not to.

Attorney General William Barr has announced that there will be a full and rigorous investigation of the circumstances surrounding Epstein's death which (and you read it here first) will not reveal diddly squat. Either because money and power have covered the trail, or because the investigators don't want to find themselves inside chalk outlines.


I try not to ask readers for anything except in rare circumstances, and this is one of those times.

For years, I've been personally moved and inspired by young Lucas Hembree, his dog Juno, and his wonderful family. Sadly, Lucas is now in the final days of an incurable illness, he's in hospice, and Medicaid has chosen this spectacularly bad moment to cut off funds for his remaining medical expenses.

The family's needs are modest, and I hope some of you can send a few dollars to his GoFundMe campaign to help out. And for those who can't, please keep Lucas and his family in your thoughts and prayers.    -Stilton


The fundraising is going great and there are now more options for giving.

If you'd prefer to send a check rather than doing an online transaction, it can go to Chester or Jennifer Hembree, 1454 Mimosa Drive, Louisville, TN 37777.

If you'd like to have the convenience and security of paying online with Paypal, you can do that by clicking this link. (Note: the page at this link will show how much money has been raised on Paypal, but does not show the total from the GoFundMe page. It's still 100% legit!)

And here's a message from the Hembree family to all of us here at Stilton's Place: "Thank you so much for supporting our sweet boy!! It means the world to us and we will forever be grateful!!"

The Simple Slut and Blow Job Billie will never get what they deserve this side of the great divide. They have a signed and sealed agreement with old Beelezbub(aka Scratch) to protect them in this life. They will eventually get theirs. We just won't get to see it.

IS there an address to which we can mail a check?

Gave them a modest donation. Wish I could do more.

And there are those who want the government to totally control our healthcare????

Believe the serial sexual predator who fluked into the Presidency as well as his grasping, vile, venal, pathologically troubled spouse rival the most infamous and evil European feudal rulers of yore (can't recall a name now, but). If they don't get their just desserts in this life, there's an eternity of reckoning waiting.

Ps One thing I'd be interested in is learning whether anyone in the guard detail has suddenly paid off their mortgage, or quit their job and gone to live in warmer climes, etc.

Bobo the Hobo said...

Gotta admit Ma and Pa Clinton are really good at covering their tracks.

While I don’t do Pay Pal, like @J, I can send a check.

Fred Ciampi said...

And dear old Jeffrey had to be the highest profile prisoner on the planet, or any other planet for that matter. If heads don't roll I will be disappointed, to say the least. I can hear weapons being cleaned, locked, and loaded all across the country.

Of course there is a different scenario; Good 'ole Jeff is hiding out with Elvis in some unknown place somewhere, somehow.

Doc said...

Top Nazi Hermann Goering was also on suicide watch but managed to have his guard smuggle in a cyanide capsule for his "shuffle off to Buffalo 🙄ðŸĪŠðŸ˜œðŸ‘Ž

SpectreRider said...

Of course not. Everyone knows you have to wait until the investigation is over!

Geoff King said...

According to Fox, Epstein had a cellmate who was"mysteriously" transfered just hours before his apparent suicide. Also, he supposedly was to have an appeal hearing this week to possibly allow him to leave the prison and be placed under house arrest in his luxury mansion. Obviously that would make him want to kill himself.
Nothing to see here. Move along.

In that respect, those SS agents were luckier than a few Arkansas State Troopers back when Billy Jeff was Governor and hadn't his perfected his technique quite yet.

Attorney General William Barr has announced that there will be a full and rigorous investigation of the circumstances surrounding Epstein's death which (and you read it here first) will not reveal diddly squat. Either because money and power have covered the trail, or because the investigators don't want to find themselves inside chalk outlines.

Or the FBI investigates the circumsances.

And this is the same government that says "Give us your guns and we'll protect you." To that, I respond with three words. "Hong. Kong. Today."

james daily said...

Here are a couple of very telling items I read elsewhere:
"But he was taken off the watch at the end of July and therefore wasn’t on it at the time of his death, the person said."
Here is what is interesting: The apparent attempted (B.S.) suicide on 7/20 and removed from watch ~7/31.
"Epstein’s removal from suicide watch would have been approved by both
the warden of the jail and the facility’s chief psychologist. . ."
This is where the Investigation should start and roll down hill from there. Also, the cellmate of Epstein that was moved was a killer. This whole mess smells to high heaven . (A) Whitey Bulger was also killed in Fed Custody a few months ago.
(B) I also read that the "psychologist" was not a psychologist but had his training in a different field completely (I couldn’t find ONE psychiatrist in any of the 4 “ forensic Psych Supervisors" they had listed.
Of course the "investigation" will be headed by the corrupt FBI.

We will never know what happened. All I know for certain is that I don't believe the "official" account in the least. When the most powerful and evil people in the world are out to get you.....well, good luck with that.

Maoz said...

Stilt, you're a good man.

Not in a position to make a monetary donation, but my thoughts and prayers are most definitely with the Hembrees.

John the Econ said...

The world's most expected suicide. And nobody saw or knew a thing. The only thing less surprising than Jeffery Epstein's suicide is the official cluelessness that permitted it to happen.

Call me a contrarian, but this is likely one of the few cases where the Clintons didn't have to lift a finger to make this problem go away. There were probably more than a few people in Epstein's little black book who are far sleazier, far more adverse to bad publicity, and far wealthier than the Clintons who were more than willing to address the problem.

One gets the sense that this was a problem a whole lot of people just wanted to go away.

Lucas: "Medicaid has chosen this spectacularly bad moment to cut off funds for his remaining medical expenses."

Just another preview of what we can expect under the wonderful "Medicare for All" the Democrats are selling this election season.

M. Mitchell Marmel said...

Done and done. Please give Lucas my regards and prayers...

And thanks for a much needed belly-laugh at the top of the page!

Colby Muenster said...

Why do I think that an autopsy (that will never become public) will show that Epstein was suffocated with a pillow hours before "he hung himself." Or perhaps a super lethal dose of cyanide. This whole thing smells so fishy, it should be wrapped in The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

Further proof that this was Arkancide is how quickly the libtards started whining that, "Now Trump's dealings with Epstein will never come to light!" Really? Trump's dealings with Epstein? Silly liberal. You should be falling on your knees thanking GOD that Epstein never got to sing.

Nothing breaks my heart more than a sick child, especially one in Lucas' situation. Mrs. Muenster and I don't have a lot to give, but we will absolutely pitch in. And at the risk of turning his family's plight political, I'd like to rub Bernie's nose in this, but his nose still has medical coverage (and always will).

John the Econ said...

Epstein & Trump: That certainly seems to be the designated narrative on social media. "Now we won't get to learn about Trump's business dealings with Epstein!"

What business dealings? The only one I am aware of was of Epstein visiting Trump properties like millions of other people, and harassing and attempting to recruit young girls to pimp. And when Trump found out about that, he exiled Epstein from his properties. Meanwhile, long after Epstein's proclivities were common knowledge, the Clinton Foundation was coordinating with him and Bill Clinton was racking up miles for medallion status on the Lolita Express.

Perhaps this is just a vain attempt to replace the now-memory-holed Russia narrative, but it's going nowhere. The non-religious are getting phony-Trump scandal fatigue and these non-scandals are going to be costing the Democrats more votes than they are going to gain.

Jon said...

If you were surprised at Jeffery Epsteins suicide image how he felt.

And of course helped Lucas.

@Sortahwitte- Sadly, I think you're right. The Clintons have already gotten away with so much that it's hard to believe they won't be able to run out the clock and escape punishment for their crimes.

@j- At present, I don't have an address where a check could be mailed, but a lot of people are asking. If I find something out, I'll post it on the main page.

@Velveeta Processed Cheese Food- Modest donations are fine, and the family is currently overwhelmed by the support they're getting. Not just because of the money, but because people are reaching out with love and compassion. At the hardest imaginable time in their lives, it's hard to overstate how much that connection means to them.

@Fish Out of Water- Yes, Lucas Hembree's situation is another reminder that government medicine isn't necessarily good, compassionate, or even adequate when the going gets tough.

Regarding a final reckoning for bad guys in the great beyond, I'm not religious...but I'll still hope it's true.

@Bobo the Hobo- NOBODY is better at covering their crimes (and the occasional shallow grave) than the Clintons. And regarding a donation by check, if I get info about how to do that I'll post it on the main page.

@Fred Ciampi- As someone observed online, the big story here isn't that Epstein died of "apparent suicide." The big story is that nobody believes the official story because trust in government, the DOJ, the FBI and other institutions has dropped to zero.

@Doc- So did Epstein find a way to bribe prison officials to give him a little "privacy" for his deed? Unlikely, but not impossible.

@SpectreRider- Granted, one USUALLY has to wait until an investigation is over. But James Comey wrote Hillary's exoneration before she'd even been brought in for questioning (and not under oath). Funny about that...

@Geoff King- Yeah, this whole thing stinks. But will we ever get the whole truth? I doubt it.

@rickn8or- Even if there was no conspiracy, what we have on display is colossal, multi-tiered incompetence. As you suggest, an excellent example of why government shouldn't be relied on.

@james daily- Damning stuff. And it's worth pointing out that Epstein's first "attempted suicide" was, according to Epstein himself, not a suicide attempt but attempted murder by person or persons unknown. I've heard nothing to suggest that Epstein was lying - so why aren't we hearing more about THAT incident?

@TrickyRicky- I'm with you: I don't necessarily believe any "official" account anymore.

@Maoz- Contributions for Lucas certainly aren't mandatory, nor are they a measure of anyone's compassion. Despite the Left's derision, thoughts and prayers definitely count...and I know they mean a lot to the Hembree family.

@John the Econ- I agree that it's unlikely that the Clintons had a hand in this particular "suicide," and Epstein had plenty of people who wanted him dead.

Regarding Lucas, his benefits were cut off because Tennessee Medicaid ran out of funds for the year (and I'm wondering how many illegals helped drain that account), but then told the Hembree family that "you can re-apply for benefits next year." Yeah, that'll be terrific help for a little boy who's dying now.

I'm flat out terrified of the prospect of "Medicare For All."

@M. Mitchell Marmel- Thanks for thinking of Lucas. And this was an odd mix of topics today, but I found out about Lucas's situation after I'd already prepped the Epstein piece.

@Colby- I probably still have a bright red mark from slapping my forehead when the Lefty news channels started opining that Trump and Russia had knocked off Epstein. And Twitter tried to promote the hashtag #TrumpBodyCount as "trending" even though it wasn't...while burying the genuinely trending hashtag #ClintonBodyCount. It's all fake news now.

And thank you for thinking of Lucas.

Anonymous said...

There really is nothing to see here. I believe assisted suicide is legal in the United States.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@John the Econ- I agree that the ginned-up accusations against Trump just aren't getting traction anymore. The Left has cried wolf too often and nobody really gives much of a damn anymore.

@Jon- I'm sure Epstein was surprised! And thank you for reaching out to Lucas.

@james daily- I think we'll get more and more superfluous details, all of which will continue to bury the truth rather than shed light on it.

james daily said...

Well, we seem to be getting closer to what happened:
Mr. Epstein was taken off suicide watch late last month at the request of his attorneys, according to people familiar with the matter. He had been meeting with his lawyers for up to 12 hours a day, one of the people said.
After he was removed from suicide watch at the end of July, Mr. Epstein had been downgraded to “special observation status,” which mandated guards check on him every 30 minutes and also required him to have a cellmate, a person familiar with the matter said.
I think the lawyers, all of them got a better offer, like their lives. It is time for a whole of of folks to spend a little quality time with a lie detector but of course, that will never happen. Ya wonder if his lawyers had a relationship with the Clintons?
It just dawned on me so I wanted to add: Ya think Marc Fernich, Epstein's attorney was ALSO on the flights? That Would be a reason to pull the watch.

Shelly said...

I did hear something positive this morning from AG Barr. I don't know if anything will actually come from it but he said that the co-conspirators in Epstein's crimes should not rest easy because he's dead. We'll see. I want to see the Clintons go down before I pay the piper myself.

John the Econ said...

"Regarding Lucas, his benefits were cut off because Tennessee Medicaid ran out of funds for the year (and I'm wondering how many illegals helped drain that account)..."

Speaking of:

Trump Administration Rule Would Penalize Immigrants For Needing Benefits

Progressives are apoplectic today over the Trump administration having the gall to apply the actual law as written that would deny welfare benefits to illegal immigrants that Democrats used to deny that they are are receiving, that they are overrunning the welfare system, or that they even need welfare because they're such net assets to the economy.

So sorry Hembree family, and sorry to the rest of you as well as this is the future; an economy that will no longer be growing because there will be less point in working while everyone is forced into a single-payer paradigm where the needs become endless as a third-of-a-billion and growing number of people (no longer just "citizens") fight for the ever shrinking pieces of pie until it's all gone.

Sad to think of go-fund-me as the insurer of last resort.

Geoff King said...

I have to hope that Epstein was intelligent enough to realize how many people wanted him dead and therefore set up a cloud account or something with the dirt on everybody, set to release that info to the web should he not reset it after a designated period of time.

NVRick said...

I want to thank Lucas's parents for allowing me to help out just a little bit.
And thank you, Stilt, for letting me know how to do it.

Joseph ET said...

Stilton Jarlsberg We recently had a local fund raiser with our Facebook group to help a family out. The organizer set up a “GoFundMe” page. I used PayPal to send a payment to her. Only needed the organizers email address. Some folks used Facebook Messenger as neither Messenger and Paypal charges a fee like GoFundMe. There was also other web sites used called Zelle, Venmo. I don’t know anything about them.

L.C.Clower said...

Prarie Lion said...

Stilt, I am more than happy to help. You have given me so many laughs, so much entertainment and insightful commentary for free, that it is my honor to support your cause. Any time, sir!

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Readers- For those who would like to donate to Lucas Hembree via check or Paypal, I've posted the details on the main page. Another tip: when you use GoFundMe, the site suggests a tip/service fee but it's optional. I generally give a buck or two because they're providing a service, using the "other" option that lets you fill in an amount.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@james daily- In fairness, if I was meeting with lawyers 12 hours a day, suicide might look pretty good.

@Shelly- I like what Barr said (I almost always do), but I won't give his statements much weight until we see indictments being made.

@John the Econ- I say more power to Trump with his initiative to start enforcing common sense laws. Plus, his plan will further drive the Left apeshit (to use the common vernacular) which is always fun to watch.

And sadly, I agree with your assessment of where society and healthcare are going in our increasingly socialized "someone else will pay for it" culture. As you say, the pie will shrink until it's gone. And while it's sad to think of a GoFundMe as the insurer of last resort, it's actually encouraging that - for now at least - the resource of "the kindness of strangers" is more reliable than government IOU's.

@Geoff King- I've been hoping the same thing: that Epstein left damning evidence and instructions that it "hits the fan" if he ever turns up dead. Please, please, please...

@NVRick- I look at the Hembree family as you do; not so much asking for money, but rather opening their lives to us in a personal and trusting return for which, we can feel the satisfaction of being reminded that there is good in the world, and that we can be part of it.

@Joseph ET- There are now multiple ways of sending a gift to Lucas. I've updated the information on the main page.

@L.C.Clower- Now THAT was a death watch...

@Prarie Lion- Thank you so much. I've never asked (nor will I ever) for any fees or donations for this blog. I wouldn't want people to think I do this for the money, or alter my opinions to be more commercial. No, I do this to vent and enjoy the friendship of a community of good folks. And once again, in the case of the Hembree family, I'm touched and humbled by just how good everyone here is.

@Anonymous wins the internet with "There really is nothing to see here. I believe assisted suicide is legal in the United States."

Emmentaler Limburger said...

Further note on @Anonymous' comment - it wins the internet as applied to the Epstein case. It dawned on me that @Anonymous could also have been callously referring to the Hembree situation, which, if the case, would be reprehensible.

And it is an indication of my failure to only be able to see the good in people that drives me to make this clarifications, so apologies for that, too.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Emmentaler Limburger- There was a brief flurry of comments posted which were likely inappropriate (I say "likely" because a lot was gibberish) so I nuked the lot of them. The electronic equivalent of shouting "get off my lawn!"
