Following the New York Post’s suggestion that Ghislaine Maxwell is being protected inside safe houses, likely to be run by an intelligence agency, in this seventh video, Editor-in-Chief of The Duran Alexander Mercouris spends more time describing the contents of the #Epstein and #Russiagate eBooks. We’ve personally read both, they have some unique and compelling insights and are an excellent addition to the coverage currently appearing in some of the UK media:

“He [Epstein] was able to operate apparently in clear view, carrying out these abominable and awful crimes and doing so with total impunity and despite the fact that so little ultimately is known about him…”


Transcription of contents:

AC:  …and it includes two new eBooks with a foreword by Alexander.

AM: Indeed, and one of them by the way is about #Epstein who we’ve been just talking about on this programme and about the nature of the scandal that involves #Epstein and we touch on many of the issues that we’ve been raising in this programme about what a mysterious and strange person he was, and how he was able to operate apparently in clear view, carrying out these abominable and awful crimes and doing so with total impunity. And despite the fact that so little ultimately is really known about him. I mean, how he made his money is mysterious, how he acquired his properties is mysterious, how he acquired this extraordinary circle of friends. All this is not really explained very well. But perhaps the strangest part of the whole #Epstein story is how little is being said about him even now. That the whole extent of the scandal which is on a simply huge scale, what he was doing, on an industrial scale, with countless victims we now know about. And yet you would think that this was the big story in the US and all the people who are involved in some way or some form would be hunted down and questions would be asked and the media would be chasing around after them and the FBI would be questioning all sorts of people. There’s been nothing like that at all. We have this very, very discreet, quiet enquiry and the media both in the US and elsewhere – including Britain – has not been covering this story in any detail. So it’s a very remarkable, very, very remarkable case, and in this book, we try to bring that out. And to discuss its various aspects to the extent that we can.

And of course, the contrast with the other book couldn’t be greater because there we have a scandal, #Ukrainegate, Which isn’t really a scandal at all because Donald Trump may have done all kinds of things but in this case, it’s not clear that he did anything. There’s no crime being alleged, there’s no actual wrongdoing being alleged. And all these people we are told are witnesses, when you drill down to it, they’re not witnesses to anything. So the President of the United States is being impeached over nothing. This is commanding the media. There’s been endless stories about this in the newspapers and on the internet and on television. We at The Duran have been forced to do vast programmes about this, and yet, there’s nothing of substance at all. So you have this extraordinary contrast in the way these two massive scandals are being dealt with. Massive in the case of one, it gets no coverage. Non-existent in the case of the other and it gets massive coverage. I mean, what is going on? And in itself, the very fact that we are asking that question I think provides a kind of answer because it shows the kind of state and society that we live in today. So those are our two books…

In this sixth video, Editor-in-Chief of The Duran Alexander Mercouris spends more time describing the contents of the #Epstein and #Russiagate eBooks. We’ve personally read both, they have some unique and compelling insights and are an excellent addition to the coverage currently appearing in some of the UK media:

“And as for Epstein, what we have done there is again, we’ve gone beneath the fog, or rather the curtain of silence that some people are trying to pull down over the story because that – unlike #Ukrainegate – is a real scandal. There are real victims. There are people who were horribly treated and injured and who will be injured for all their lives as a result of what Epstein and his accomplices did…” 


Transcription of the contents:

AC:  …and we’ve got the two eBooks on #Ukrainegate and #Epstein as well.

AM: Indeed we do and what extraordinary and excellent books those are, going into all the details of those two very complicated and intricate scandals and trying to clear out the fog that’s been created around them. In the case of #Ukrainegate, I mean, we talk on this programme about serious things, we’ve just been giving you a video in which we’ve been talking about the war and conflicts that are happening there, we’re trying to analyse them and explain the facts. It’s been so bizarre to deal with these substantial real issues and then to have to return to #Ukrainegate which is a scandal about absolutely nothing. There is actually no crime there, even the Democrats admit that. There’s not even evidence of wrongdoing there. There are no witnesses either. The person who came along and started this whole thing, this mythological whistleblower, he wasn’t even a witness. So I mean, we go through in our book about #Ukrainegate all the facts, we actually look at the facts, we discuss the real story behind #Ukrainegate and we explain firstly what a completely phony impeachment that is, and we also provide its overall context in the form of the ongoing struggle of the Democrats and sections of the US deep state to try to remove Donald Trump from office, whose election in 2016 they’d never accepted.

And as for Epstein, what we have done there is again, we’ve gone beneath the fog, or rather the curtain of silence that some people are trying to pull down over the story because that – unlike #Ukrainegate – is a real scandal. There are real victims. There are people who were horribly treated and injured and who will be injured for all their lives as a result of what Epstein and his accomplices did, and yet Epstein was able to do it all in full public view with all of the top people of American society coming to his parties, accepting his invitations, coming to his ranch and to his island and his mansion in New York, and seeing all the things that were going on. And he was able to do all of that for years and years and years until eventually, finally, because some of his victims brought court cases against him, it eventually caught up with him. But still, we don’t know the real story, we don’t know the full truth about what was actually going on, who Epstein was, how he made his money, how he was able to do all of this in clear view. And that’s a real scandal with real victims and yet see the disproportion in media coverage. #Ukrainegate, this phony scandal about nothing, column inches, vast piles of coverage, endless TV debates about something that has no reality. #Epstein, virtually nothing. Every attempt that is made to discuss #Epstein, as we have experienced on The Duran, faces massive censorship issues. So that’s what our two books are about.

In this fifth video, Editor-in-Chief of The Duran Alexander Mercouris spends more time describing the contents of the #Epstein and #Russiagate eBooks. We’ve personally read both, they have some unique insights and are an excellent addition to the coverage currently appearing in some of the UK media:

We know a lot about the kind of people he [Epstein] was involved with and the thing that we also know about him, of course, is that he was an arch-criminal who carried out the most appalling crimes and that he was able to do it in full public view without anybody doing anything apparently to bring him to heel…”


Transcription of the contents:

AC:  …including two new eBooks, Alexander, one on #Ukrainegate and one on #Epstein, with a foreword written by yourself.

AM: Indeed, each book has a foreword written by me and in the #Epstein book I go into some detail to discuss the extraordinary mystery of this very strange man, the fact that we really, ultimately know so little about him. We know that he became incredibly rich, we don’t really know how he became so rich. We know a lot about the kind of people he was involved with and the thing that we also know about him, of course, is that he was an arch-criminal who carried out the most appalling crimes and that he was able to do it in full public view without anybody doing anything apparently to bring him to heel and that what eventually brought him down was not as I think many people think law enforcement, it was the fact that after 2014, a string of his victims started to bring civil claims against him in various courts. The accumulation of the evidence just simply became in the end too strong and at that point, very much to Epstein’s own surprise, the FBI finally acted. But if you want to get an overview of the kind of man Epstein was, to the extent that we can possibly know and that the nature of the scandal that surrounds him and of the extraordinary wall of silence that has descended around both him and the scandal, especially since his frankly rather strange death, then, as I said, go to our book and you’ll find it all there.

And as for #Ukrainegate, what we try to show in this book that we’ve done on #Ukrainegate – which I’ve tried to bring out in the preface – is how absolutely non-existent this whole impeachment saga is. How it goes completely against all the precedents established in previous impeachments. How there is no crime or indeed any clear evidence of wrongdoing on the part of anybody involved. It turns out it’s all a product of a group of bitter officials within the US bureaucracy who were worried about possible changes to the US’s Ukrainian policy, teaming up with the Democrats who had it in for Donald Trump ever since he was elected. So in a way, it’s another conspiracy, if you will, this time a conspiracy against Donald Trump. And the thing that links it together with #Epstein is that once again we have a mainstream media that simply isn’t reporting the story in the proper and correctly factual way. So that’s what we aim to do in our two eBooks. You can find those on our shop.

In this fourth video, Editor-in-Chief of The Duran Alexander Mercouris spends more time describing the contents of the #Epstein and #Russiagate eBooks. We’ve personally read both, they have some unique insights and are an excellent addition to the coverage currently appearing in some of the UK media:

“The #Epstein affair is a political scandal as much as it is a legal, criminal scandal because of the kind of people that Epstein was involved with, who are people of every conceivable level within the American power elite…”


Transcription of the contents:

AC:  …including the launch of two new eBooks, one on #Epstein and one on #Ukrainegate.

AM: Indeed, and can we just say, those eBooks bring together…they’re a combination of the transcripts of various videos we’ve done on each subject. These are the two big stories in our opinion at the moment in the United States. The #Epstein affair is a political scandal as much as it is a legal, criminal scandal because of the kind of people that Epstein was involved with, who are people of every conceivable level within the American power elite. He was involved with both the wealthy and the rich and he was also connected with the politically powerful also. I mean, including – as everybody knows – Bill Clinton. And his influence, as we’ve also learned extended to Britain, where Prince Andrew was also one of his associates. So this is a huge scandal, it has been grossly under-reported. We are having tremendous problems circulating our videos on the subject, so we thought bringing it altogether in an eBook would help people understand the scandal better, and I’ve written a preface in which I’ve discussed the nature of Epstein, this very mysterious and strange man, about whom so little is known, about how he was simultaneously this wealthy socialite in New York, in a New York mansion, a philanthropist, a person who was giving money to all sorts of charities, a kind of Bruce Wayne figure if you like. But unlike Bruce Wayne in the graphic novels, not a crime fighter in the guise of the Batman in his other life, but actually, on the contrary, a criminal monster who perpetrated the most abysmal crimes, and did so in full public view without apparently at any time afraid that anything would catch up with him.

So we look at Epstein very carefully in the one book and in #Ukrainegate, we look at this extraordinary and very bizarre impeachment that is simultaneously happening there also. We discuss all its various aspects and permutations. We explain how utterly insubstantial this impeachment case actually is and it is based upon a supposed complaint from a whistleblower, who isn’t really a whistleblower at all. that the complaint is secondhand and is based largely on gossip. The actual evidence doesn’t really bear out any of the points that were made in that complaint, how all rules of due process have been thrown aside in pursuit of that impeachment and how the impeachment itself seems to be intended to divert attention away from other more serious things like the #Russiagate scandal and also the whole business of what was going on in Ukraine and the fact that all these very well-connected people in the United States were going to Ukraine and making lots and lots of money there. Not just Hunter Biden but all sorts of others too. So you can all find those, those two books in our shop. DRN20 as Alex correctly says is the discount code. It covers the two books.

In this third video, Editor-in-Chief of The Duran Alexander Mercouris spends a lot more time filling us in on the contents of the #Epstein and #Russiagate eBooks. We’ve personally read both, they have some unique insights and are an excellent addition to the coverage currently appearing in the UK media:

“We’re living in a world of cover-ups……………………………….”


Transcription of the contents:

AC:  …and we also have two eBooks Alexander, on some more cover-ups, #Epstein and #Ukrainegate.

AM:  We certainly do if I may say so, I mean, this is…we’re living in a world of cover-ups it seems to me because if we’re talking about #Epstein, I mean, our book on Epstein is primarily on a specific subject… Our eBooks are all about – as Alex correctly said – cover-ups, cover-ups seem to be almost completely out of control at the moment and in some ways the most grotesque of all is the one involving Jeffery Epstein. Now, we’ve discussed Jeffery Epstein many times in the videos we’ve done, we’ve had massive trouble – just as we’ve had with the #OPCW getting videos circulated – our videos about #Epstein. I mean, they get routinely de-monetised, they don’t circulate freely in social media. They get suppressed and we’re not of course the only people who try to report #Epstein’s story who’ve found ourselves facing the same difficulties. And it is very consistent with the whole reality of the #Epstein affair because what you have here is a man – Epstein – apparently immensely rich, who allegedly is worth $577 million. We know for a fact that he is a massive criminal, a serial sex offender, a serial rapist, a sex trafficker, a monster. And yet we know so little else about him. We don’t know really how he became rich. We don’t really know who he really was. We don’t know how he got all the extraordinary connections that he did. There is so much mystery about this man and we also find out that all kinds of other people – powerful people – people like Bill Clinton, Alan Dershowitz, Prince Andrew and of course Ghislaine Maxwell, his alleged accomplice.

All of these people were somehow connected to him, and again, no real explanation has ever been provided of how this man who came somehow out of nowhere was able to acquire all of these connections. And of course, he didn’t just acquire those connections, he was able to carry out his crimes in clear view. I mean, he barely conceals from anybody what he was doing. Which is why when the FBI finally took the case against him seriously, the whole #Epstein thing tumbled like a house of cards. Even then, even after Epstein’s arrest, we know incredibly little. We don’t know anything about the way the investigations are going. There’s all these unanswered questions about how he came to die, whether he was murdered, whether he committed suicide, all these speculations are out there. But very, very few answers. So our book, our eBook puts together all of these various questions and mysterious and discussions that there have been about #Epstein and in some ways, even more than Epstein himself, even more important than the crimes that he committed, incredibly serious though those were, there are these unanswered questions and the cover-up if you like, which is even more important. Now, as for #Ukrainegate, well, that is in my opinion, not just a cover-up but a cover-up of multiple things. Firstly, it’s a cover-up of the failure of #Russiagate, I mean, you had the whole attempt to impeach Donald Trump on the basis of a completely bogus story that he was an agent of the Russians. And that story, that original #Russiagate story I am convinced – and I always have been convinced – that one of the reasons that was peddled to the extent that it was was in order to cover up the fact that during the 2016 presidential election campaign, the FBI and the rest of the US intelligence community were undertaking surveillance of Donald Trump’s campaign, quite probably on behalf…

…of the Democrats. So I mean, that is an enormous cover-up in itself, #Russiagate collapsed, so now they’ve looked for another thing, which is #Ukrainegate, to try to divert attention away from #Russiagate. And of course, #Ukrainegate isn’t just a cover-up of that because we have all these extraordinary mysteries and stories now coming out of Ukraine itself, we learn about what all kinds of people – Hunter Biden is only one of them, Devon Archer, all these extraordinary American officials, sons of American officials, sons of American politicians – they were all going to Ukraine, they were doing all kinds of things there, they were being paid vast amounts of money for doing those things. We don’t quite know what those things were yet. We don’t seem to get a true sense of all the things that were going on in Ukraine, but the sense we get is it was on a huge scale and that it was very serious. So you get #Ukrainegate…is a cover-up not just of #Russiagate but of all of those things that were going on as well. And as we try to explain in our videos, which are transcribed in our book, and in fact in our book, #Ukrainegate itself is a completely flimsy, phony story. I mean, if #Russiagate was invisible, #Ukrainegate isn’t just invisible, it’s just nonsensical. There is nothing there at all to pin on Donald Trump. I have seen some people say that Donald Trump didn’t do things perfectly right. I disagree. I don’t find that there is any evidence of wrongdoing in any of the interactions Donald Trump or his officials had with the Ukrainians at all. So those are our two eBooks, please go to our shop. You can find them there. You will learn an awful lot from them. DRN 20 being our discount code. It covers the books.

In this second video, Editor-in-Chief of The Duran Alexander Mercouris talks a little more about the contents of the #Epstein and #Russiagate eBooks.

“These are two huge stories, both starting in the US, but both with international ramifications…………………………………”


Transcription of the contents:

AC:  …and the launching of two new eBooks with an intro – both of those eBooks have an intro – via Alexander Mercouris. And those books focus on #Ukrainegate – the #Ukrainegate hoax – and a great eBook on the #Epstein story.

AM:  Yes, I mean, these are two huge stories, both centering and starting in the US but both obviously with international ramifications because they both involve all kinds of people who are non-Americans, I mean, the #Ukrainegate involves lots of Ukrainians as we know and of course #Epstein is now becoming a scandal, a serious scandal in Britain, where the royal family – through Prince Andrew – is now directly affected. Now, these are the two big stories I think in the US at the moment, the impeachment which is one of the most – I think – preposterous political scandals I have ever come across. I mean, this extraordinary imbalance in America between this country which has so many strengths and a political system that has now become so disastrously dysfunctional. But what we set out to do in this book is to show how absurd and misconceived and ultimately empty the Ukrainegate story is. I mean, if #Russiagate was a massive tragedy, #Ukrainegate is just a low farce, an ugly, low farce. That’s what our book does, we bring together all our discussions on this topic and I write a preface – as Alex says – in which I try to tie it all together and show the kind of absurd thing and a grossly partisan thing that #Ukrainegate ultimately is. Now, #Epstein is even more extraordinary in some ways because this is a real scandal, I mean, this is a very mysterious, very creepy individual. We still don’t know very much about Epstein, in fact it’s extraordinary how little we still know about Epstein.

All these guesses and speculations and rumours about who he was and what he was doing and how he made his money… What we do know for a fact is that he was a monster. He was a serial trafficker, abuser of children, probably a rapist as well, I’m fairly sure of it given the kind of things that he was involved in. I mean, he was a monster on a massive scale and there’s two things to take away from this. Firstly, that his enormous wealth and power and privilege and his position within US and international society and this extraordinary collection of friends he had, people like Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, they gave him protection to do all the things that he did in clear view. I mean, there was no real attempt to conceal what he was doing. And now, even after his mysterious and unexplained death, that is still the case. Because this scandal is not being reported to anything like the extent that it should be reported. So there is still this extraordinary silence that we have to try and battle against to breakthrough in order to discuss this scandal. We at The Duran have encountered it. We’ve had a lot of trouble with social media providers trying to get the story about #Epstein out, we’ve had all kinds of issues with it. So these are the two big topical issues that we’ve done eBooks on and I think people who are interested in these stories and finding out the truth about them will find those two eBooks indispensable to understand these two affairs properly.

In this video, Editor-in-Chief of The Duran Alexander Mercouris talks about the contents of the #Epstein and #Russiagate eBooks.

“eBooks is something that we are really looking to develop and expand. Because this is something which we think enables us to put all of our various thoughts and ideas on particular topics together…………………………..”


Transcription of the contents;

AC:  …and we also have two new eBooks coming out as well, Alexander.

AM:  We certainly do and can I just say, I mean, eBooks is something that we are really looking to develop and expand. Because this is something which we think enables us to put all our various thoughts and ideas on particular topics together. We’ve dealt in these two eBooks with two of the most topical issues that have come up. The #Ukrainegate impeachment hoax, nonsense, whatever you want to call it, but we’ve discussed it at great length in our videos and we’ve put them together in a book and I’ve also written a preface, trying to pull it all together and explain it to our viewers. And then the other – I think – huge story which isn’t getting anywhere near the sort of attention it deserves and merits and which is now paradoxically being more widely covered in Britain than in the United States, even though it is a US story ultimately, and that’s the #Epstein scandal. I mean, we’ve talked a lot in our videos about the #Epstein scandal, we’ve had problems by the way getting our views out because we’ve discovered that social media providers don’t seem to be very keen on discussions of the #Epstein story. But anyway, we’ve put it together, we’ve put our videos together and again, I’ve provided a preface to discuss certain aspects of the #Epstein story and to discuss what a very, very strange and creepy individual Epstein was. Creepy, I mean, beyond the fact that he was a monster and a criminal of the worst sort. But he is a very strange and mysterious man. And also the extraordinary curtain of silence that some people are trying to draw down over the whole affair. That in itself was a reason by the way for us to publish our books. So go to our shop and find our books…

Wry smile? Michael Rosen’s 10-point Guide to Labour Leadership Candidates

Hear, hear…!

Political Concern

A gift from Robert Kornreich, a Kings Heath reader; emphasis added.

1. The Economy: if you’re asked about why ‘Labour crashed the economy’ – concede everything. Apologise profusely. Say, ‘Yes we did.’ Smile weakly. Agree if the interviewer makes out ‘there was no money left.’ Agree that it was ‘necessary’ to ‘get things right’ and ‘tough decisions had to be made’ and perhaps ‘we were in the wrong place to put them right at the time.’

Don’t ever point out that in fact it wasn’t the ‘economy’ (in the sense  of the government’s finances) that had ‘crashed’. It was the bankers’ who wouldn’t or couldn’t lend money any more.

Never point out that the UK is a currency-issuing economy. Never point out that the government has been issuing billions of what they call ‘quantitative easing’ which has the net effect of making the super-rich richer by increasing the value of their assets.

We are the people

As it feels like we’re sinking into a swamp, what a heartwarming, uplifting post this is. This could be a way forward for determined groups of people to protect their children’s futures, ask some serious questions, use power to a good, positive end and get some control back.

Fear and Loathing in Great Britain

In a nearby town to me there is a revolution going on. The town is Frome and the revolution has people weeping with relief, joy, amazement and love.

How do I know? My seriously ill niece moved there. She is unemployable in any conventional sense. Between bouts of relentless illness and innumerable hospital visits, a regular job is out of the question and living in Tory Britain with our broken and punitive Tory benefits system she needed an alternative lifestyle, one in which she made the decisions and had control, as best she can, over her own destiny.

She didn’t know it when she moved there, but it’s happening in Frome and people are coming from all over the country and the world to see it and learn from it.

The Art of Doublespeak: Bellingcat and Mind Control

PR or Public Relations is a euphemism for “propaganda”.
The US Hollywood blockbuster movie is the world’s most successful propaganda vehicle and has been for a century. Public Relations is big money and surreptitious mind control. It never went out of fashion, has transferred to the internet and is as successful today as it always has been. But with failed false flags, a rising tide of good-faith, independent media and the exposure of bad-faith actors such as The Atlantic Council, BellingCat, Integrity Initiative and George Monbiot of DoubleDown News, are the first cracks beginning to appear…?

Counter Information

Global Research, December 12, 2019

In the 1920s, the influential American intellectual Walter Lippman argued that the average person was incapable of seeing or understanding the world clearly and needed to be guided by experts behind the social curtain.  In a number of books he laid out the theoretical foundations for the practical work of Edward Bernays, who developed “public relations” (aka propaganda) to carry out this task for the ruling elites.  Bernays had honed his skills while working as a propagandist for the United States during World War I, and after the war he set himself up as a public relations counselor in New York City. 

There is a fascinating exchange at the beginning of Adam Curtis’s documentary, The Century of Self, where Bernays, then nearly 100 years old but still very sharp, reveals his manipulative mindset and that of so many of those…
