Elite Human Trafficking, Part 2
Here’s part two of Mouthy Buddha’s latest probe into Elite Human Trafficking. Here, we are introduced to the Art in Embassies program, a federal program administered by the State Department to supply artwork for U.S. embassies. Sounds worthwhile, but in actuality, it might well be a cover for child and sex trafficking.
Mouthy Buddha gives us a look at many of the sinister characters operating on the fringes who have been involved or aided by this program: the spirit cooking Marina Abramovic, dubious Brazilian faith healer John of God, super art collector Tony Podesta and Comet Ping Pong owner James Alefantis. We also meet Sabrina Bittencourt, who tried to expose how John of God ran sex slave farms for baby trafficking, only to be found dead shortly thereafter. (Editor’s Note: If you are squeamish, you might need to close your eyes for some of the John of God “faith surgery” scenes.)
We meet several other shady characters here: the artist Jeff Koons and his former wife, the Hungarian porn star Cicciolina. How can Koons serve on the board of the International Center for Missing & Exploited Children?
Others introduced: David Epstein, who operates the art shipping firm Masterpiece International, and Nicholas Negroponte, the co-founder of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab, who took money from another Epstein, Jeffrey Epstein — even after Epstein had been convicted of child sex trafficking! Negroponte has said, “If you wind back the clock, I still say, ‘Take it.'” He might be a powerful academic, but this dude has no class whatsoever. A true scumbag!
