Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak is the latest contender trying to upend embattled Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, but his intimate ties to convicted sex predator Jeffrey Epstein may hurt his dreams for a political resurrection in the Jewish state.
The Daily Mail uncovered exclusive photographs of Barak, who was cloaking his face at the time, entering Epstein’s mansion in 2016. Federal authorities found piles of cash, child pornography, and a forged Saudi Arabian passport during a recent raid of Epstein’s home as the Democratic Party-connected predator faces new sex trafficking charges.
Barak has had long-standing financial ties to Epstein, but he claims he “never met Epstein in the company of women or young girls.”
“Every investor in this partnership is bound by the same commercial contract. As soon as the present charges related to Epstein became known, I instructed my lawyers to examine the options we have for expelling the company associated with Epstein from this partnership,” Barak said about his financial connections to Epstein.
However, photographic evidence shows at least four young women entered Epstein’s mansion on the same day that Barak made his visit.
“I was there, for lunch or chat, nothing else. So what?” Barak said when confronted about his stay at the mansion. He also admitted that he had visited Little St. James, Epstein’s private island where it is alleged that some of the world’s most powerful individuals regularly abused underage girls.
Barak served as Israeli Prime Minister from 1999-2001 and defense minister from 2007-2013. His re-emergence in Israeli politics is seen as a serious threat to Netanyahu’s ambitions to stay at the helm of the Jewish state.
“Today, from the northern borders, I undertake to regain democracy,” said Barak, who is representing the new political party, Democratic Israel.
“After several years of the useless bloodshed, I promised if I was elected, I would have returned the sons to the house,” Barak added, “and today, from the northern borders, I pledge to regain democracy.”
Barak calls Netanyahu’s corruption “limitless” and plans to eliminate the leader who has been a mainstay of Israeli politics for decades from power as Netanyahu tries to fend off investigations.
“Netanyahu has reached the end of his political career,” Barak said. “The Netanyahu regime must be felled.”
“Bibi, this is your last chance to go home of your own volition,” he added.
Netanyahu will not go down without a fight, and he is highlighting Barak’s ties to Epstein to show that his opponent may not be the credible reformer he is making himself out to be.

Chinese Communist Party Media is Rooting for Black Lives Matter
According to a piece by Paul Joseph Watson at Summit News, the Chinese state media outlet Xinhua is rooting for leftist insurrectionist group Black Lives Matter.
The outlet went so far as to draw a cartoon with police officers equipped with pitchforks and torches pursuing a black man.
“Statistics show, time and again, that some are disproportionately prejudiced against in the U.S. #FightRacism,” the official Xinhua News account Tweeted.

The image depicts three white police officers and a dog chasing a black male. While in pursuit, the officers exclaimed, “hunt that blackie!
The Chinese Communist Party has taken advantage of the BLM movement to try to gain international clout and stir up unrest within the U.S. The CCP wants nothing more than a weakened U.S. that is tearing itself apart. From there, it can position itself as a more “stable” alternative to the U.S. and continue projecting its soft power.
Similarly, by accepting the American Left’s narrative on police brutality, the CCP can draw attention away from its brutal human rights track record against ethnic minorities such as the Uyghurs.
Several Twitter users caught on to this and pointed out the irony in the CCP’s attacks against the U.S.
“So how are the Uighurs doing up in Xinjiang?” inquired one user.
Another user called attention to how China takes down black people from promotional material for Hollywood movies.

China has a very strong ethnocentric ethos and is not very friendly towards minority outgroups. After all, China views itself as “Zhong Guo” (the Middle Kingdom).
Watson pointed to a Spectator article detailing how Chinese people with a darker complexion receive harsh treatment. Some children get called “monkeys” if their complexion is perceived to be too dark.
In her Spectator piece, Carola Binney observed that racism in China is “so commonplace it can seem almost cheerful” and she noted that racism is a “standard undercurrent of public debate.”
All in all, China has no business lecturing the U.S. about racism.
Nevertheless, the U.S. should get its domestic house in order and tighten its migration and trade policies with China.
China will seek to exploit any vulnerabilities the U.S. has, and policymakers should do everything possible to shore up any weakness the U.S. has and keep China at bay.
