Deep State Female Targets

Dark Journalist Daniel Liszt explores the Deep State assassination of Vicki Morgan on July 7, 1983 in Los Angeles, California. Morgan, a voluptuous model, had been the backdoor mistress of Alfred S. Bloomingdale, the heir to the Bloomingdale’s Department Store fortune.

Bloomingdale has been called “the father of the credit card,” as he developed the Diner’s Club card. He also was a major player in Hollywood, first serving as an agent for Frank Sinatra and Judy Garland, and later working as an executive at Columbia Pictures. In addition, he was perhaps the biggest donor on record to Ronald Reagan in his gubernatorial races in California as well as his Presidential races, notably his successful defeat of Jimmy Carter in 1980.

But Bloomingdale had many dirty secret habits. He not only kept Morgan as his mistress, but involved her in brutal sadomasochistic practices. He liked to pick up prostitutes as well as models or actresses for short flings. Sometimes, he administered severe beatings to these women.

After he died of throat cancer in 1982, Morgan insisted upon a monthly “palimony”  allowance of $18,000 he had promised her. His wife, Betsy, objected and cut Morgan off. A courtroom fight ensued, ending with her subsequent murder.

This is a fascinating case. It involves super-rich players in sadistic games of sex and criminality high up in Hollywood and political circles. Much of what we know about Bloomingdale mirrors the sordid and skankier affairs of Jeffrey Epstein.

This is a 3-hour-plus dive, so it might take you a couple of settings to digest it all. There is a short technical blackout at the front. If you want to bypass the snafu, start at the 7:00 minute mark.




What Motivated Ghislaine?

The question that has baffled authorities for years is what motivated Ghislaine Maxwell to procure for convicted sex trafficker and now allegedly diseased Jeffrey Epstein? British investigative journalist John Sweeney says the answer lies deeply in the psyches of both of these troubled players.

Sweeney says that when a former Vanity Fair reporter interviewed Epstein at his Manhattan mansion, she noticed only one book on the shelf and it’s Marquis de Sade, the French writer known for his violent sexual fantasies. The reporter also noted the walls were decorated with creepy glass eyes, originally made for injured British soldiers during World War I. When authorities raided his palatial home in Palm Beach, Fla., they discovered an Amazon receipt for three books on sadomasochism. Sweeney says there’s sufficient evidence that Epstein was into sadomasochism, though of a more psychological than physical nature.

Harken back to British billionaire Robert Maxwell and you’ll discover the same skullduggery–fraudster and consummate liar who led a life of thievery and deception. So what was Ghislaine’s motivation to hook up with Epstein? Says Sweeney, “When her father dies, Ghislaine loses one monster. She goes to Manhattan and finds another.” Here’s more detail with Sweeney and Shaun Attwood.

Triggered By Childhood Trauma

Were Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell unwittingly drawn to each other through traumatic abuse during their childhoods? Appearing on the Shaun Attwood podcast, Richard Brannon, a life coach and psychologist based in the United Kingdom, believes it’s almost certainly a possibility.

Attwood says that in an earlier interview with British investigative journalist John Sweeney, he learned that Maxwell grew up in fear of her dominant father, Robert Maxwell, a giant in British media and a suspected spy, who dealt out corporal punishment for her misdeeds. Sweeney says that when Father Maxwell was disciplining her, she had a choice of belts with which she was going to get whipped. Books were found by authorities on the Maxwell property, such as Story Of O, an erotic French novel, and a BDSM-type manual (a variety of erotic practices involving bondage, submission and sadomasochism). Sweeney’s thoughts were this BDSM streak was laid down as part of the corporal punishment.

As for Epstein, the details of his childhood are foggy. Brannon says, “Things will have happened to him in his childhood, I’m sure, that would have activated parts of him that would have otherwise lain dormant and turned him into the monster that he became.” He added that these stories reminded him of similar abuse Michael Jackson suffered at the hands of his father.

Here more’s with Attwood and Brannon, who also deepen their analysis, discussing whether two people with the same psychopathic and narcissistic traits actually united their energies to create such evil.
