July 9, 2019

In a long-overdue turn, billionaire (alleged) pervert Jeffrey Epstein has been indicted for paying off dozens of underaged girls, as young as 14, for sexual services or to recruit other young girls.  His private plane was known as the “Lolita Express,” and he had a private island sometimes called "Pedophile Island," where he was rumored to have engaged in similar perverted acts, sometimes with wealthy guests.

Epstein avoided jail 10 years ago by reaching a plea agreement with federal prosecutors in Florida, which was roundly denounced as a sweetheart deal.  A judge recently ruled that it violated the law by not informing his victims so that they could oppose it. The new indictment is in New York, and involves alleged victims who are now adults.  There could be more charges: prosecutors are seeking more victims, and in a twist that suggests astounding stupidity and hubris, they reportedly found photos of what are believed to be underaged girls when they searched his home.

Of course, it’s a given these days that any negative news story must somehow be hung on President Trump, no matter how tenuous the connection.  And so we see the herculean efforts now being made to make us believe Trump and Epstein were close associates.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is also demanding that Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta resign because he was the US Attorney in Miami who oversaw the plea deal that let Epstein off with 13 months in county jail (mostly on work release) instead of federal prison.

The deal was widely blasted at the time, although Acosta maintains that it was appropriate under the circumstances.  The media aren’t bothering to tell us that those circumstances were largely dictated by the lenient local Palm Beach County prosecutor, who decided what (and how little) evidence to show to the grand jury.

As Liz Shields at PJ Media notes, there are also very few media outlets reminding us that the head of the FBI at the time the Epstein case was handed off to the local DA was Robert Mueller.

Mueller isn’t the only current icon of the left who looks bad with the reemergence of the Epstein case: New York DA Cyrus (“Slap Paul Manafort in Ricker’s!”) Vance Jr’s office believed Epstein’s lawyers and without even consulting Florida authorities, lowered Epstein’s New York sex offender registry ranking from the highest Level 3 to the lowest Level 1.

Meanwhile, the efforts spin on to try to convince us that Trump was somehow a close pal of Epstein’s, despite no evidence that they were more than nodding acquaintances on the New York social scene, and that the Clintons hardly knew him, even though Epstein claimed to help create the Clinton Foundation and Bill reportedly took 26 trips on the “Lolita Express.” 

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/bill-clinton-claims-he-knows-nothing-about-jeffrey-epsteins-alleged-child-sex-crimes

To be clear: nobody should be accused of guilt by association, and so far, there’s been no evidence that either Trump or Clinton had anything to do with Epstein’s sickening sexual practices.  It’s just interesting to see the lengths to which the media will go to sweep the innuendo about Clinton under the rug while blowing up any rumors about Trump into front page news. 

Why am I reminded of another story – Russian collusion – where Trump was made the target of accusations and investigations for something that the Clintons actually did?  Maybe it’s because both of those fake stories could ultimately be traced back to the same Clinton-connected source.  I’ll give you three guesses who that was, and the first two don’t count:

Remember how we were told that President Trump had given up on putting the citizenship question on the 2020 Census after the questionable SCOTUS opinion written by Justice Roberts (basically, “you have the power to do it, but we don’t care for your explanation of why” – which is irrelevant if the executive has the power to do it)?  Trump said that was “fake news,” and he was called a lying liar for the umpteenth time.  Well, guess what: he hasn’t given up on putting the citizenship question on the 2020 Census.

https://www.westernjournal.com/ag-barr-determines-trump-admin-can-legally-add-citizenship-question-census/

The details of what the DOJ is planning to do are at the link, along with Nancy Pelosi’s baffling argument against finding out how many people in the US are actually citizens, which would seem to be a pretty basic question for a Census -- particularly if some states are padding their populations with illegal immigrants to get more representation in the House than they deserve at the expense of other states and actual US citizens.  Speaker Pelosi seems to be under the delusion that only white people can be citizens.  Sad.  And frankly, kind of racist.

    Although I understand the reasons for putting the citizenship question on the census, I do have to wonder do they actually expect the people to be honest? It is very easy to say yes I'm a citizen, no I'm not a citizen,yes Murphy is my son (when Murphy is actually my dog). You can make the census say anything you wish. So,I can't believe that we are fooling ourselves into believing that people are going to say, No, I'm an illegal alien. Unfortunately, people who have already broken the law by crossing our borders illegally are not going to be honest!

    We should emphasize the importance of being a US citizen.That it must be earned either by your ancestors or by the individual accepting his new obligation to his country of choice.I hark back to the Bible,New Testament,Acts 22:25 when Paul's life was saved from immediate death as he declared his Roman citizenship and held for later trial.We should all be proud to declare our citizenship when asked.

    I think Congress is terrible for not wanting the citizenship on the census. They are also terrible in reference to immigration on the southern border. It's all politics. What cant they represent us the way they are supposed to do.

    This latest per Epstein is not good and if enough evidence of these women being underage is disgusting and the men who may have been involved . Someone commented today on the news that Pres Clinton traveled with Epstein a few times and did not even have his security around WHY NOT? Also was said that Epstein was blacklisted at one of Trumps clubs for things he did so if true then needs to be noted. Whoever else is on the list need to show proof . Saying Dershowitz was there but as a guest for sex or to help with his legal case. Epstein was one messed up man and if these young women were underage time to go to prison and stay. Acosta may have to now resign something smells in the Apple Barrel!

    Speaker Pelosi also seems to be under the delusion that all immigrants are either brown or black. There are immigrants living here, mostly legally, from all over the world; from the UK, the EU, Africa, India, China and the rest of Asia, etc. All colors. What is wrong with her?

    WJ Clinton was a close friend of Epstein and rumors of him on the Lolita Express have been circulating since his second term in office.

    I will say it again. Many of these well meaning Libs are truly racist. They would be appalled to be called that but when you section out people based on color, your being racist. When you assume African Americans and other darker skinned people need help because they cannot succeed on their own, that is racist. There are plenty of light skinned people who need help so let’s start to determine where our assistance goes based on present circumstances not ancient circumstances,not based on one’s skin color. Funny thing is, most conservatives actually don’t care about your color, only your character. Hmmm, that has a familiar ring to it.

    It is amazing to me how few people realize that a census without a VERIFIABLE citizenship question.....would allow various states to just count everyone....and that count could result in more seats for that state in the House of Representatives!!!! (does "pack the house" resonate with anyone?)

    It is my oponion that a method should be developed by which a voter would be guaranteed the ability to vote only if they can prove citizenship.

    1) American citizenship must be proven by actual accepted documents--either a validated birth certificate....or....validated citizenship papers.

    2) In order to actually VOTE in an election for public office, a plastic card with an I.D. chip should be issued to each voter. This would make it very difficult to counterfeit cards, duplicate identities.....etc.

    Realize this would take time....to validate everyone.....and have cards made....but....there ARE places to start....voter roles, social security roles....etc.

    (The only drawback....would be those who vote by mail....but that is a separate issue that would have to be solved...and....in many states, it would present an almost insurmountable problem).

    Realize this is an absolutely enormous undertaking.....but...what good is the citizenship question on the census....when all people have to do is lie? And...where is the validation of the answered census itself?

    And...no....a driver's license is not, nor should it be, a viable method of proving "citizenship"..... (especially if handed out like crazy....such as in NYC). Whatever happned to having to take "driver's training" and pass an actual "test"? I admit to not knowing much about NYC's new plan....but....sure seems odd....and a "driver's license" should be just that....for driving.....

    Just one more example of how money and Power have insured the TWO TIERED Justice System remains intact. I know NEVER win friends or converts by calling the left Ignorant Morons but somehow I just can't lie with a straight face! And at 81 I don't really want these morons for acquaintances and NEVER as Friends. My Dad a WWII veteran always taught me to respect my elders! that is getting easier every day and allows me to call a Moron when I see/hear a Moron with a clear conscience.

    There is no 'if' on the democratic controlled states and cities that have a large population of illegal's. California probably 2 to 3 million or more. I believe we need to know because it takes Federal dollars away from states that report accurate numbers of actual citizens.

    Regarding 2020 census and proposed citizenship question, please remember that illegals / invaders / undocumented persons likely will lie about their citizenship status. So the question likely will not prove useful to determine how many millions of undocumented persons reside in USA ... also, democrats will have access to the results which they could use to further their nefarious gerrymandering activities, intended to fix elections in their favor, forever ...

    More useful could be questions about “region of origin or region of family affiliation” ... “region of interest or family affiliation” could include the following : Middle East, Africa, Europe, Northern Asia, Southern Asia, Pacifica / Australia / Oceana, North America, Central & South America ...

    I'm tired of anti-Americans trying to take over our great nation.
    I'm appalled that our men and women of the armed forces may have given all for nothing. I'm for closing the borders until we can gain some semblance of order and control. We the people should stand up, praise God for His blessings, and insist that this nation be one nation under God once again.

    Does Pelosi have a prescription that needs to be changed modified or taken off? She needs to change her doctor, therapist or what ever she is doing she should never be alone if she is by herself and stops and talks to a stranger I believe a 911 call will happen she is not mentally well. She makes a statement that America wants to be white by doing the Census my point is we have white people on the left that are white hoodlums look at Pelosi Schumer Durbin Nadler Schiff Clintons and the rest of those losers and u want more white people those are Disgraced Flawed Human Beings We have a White President that is working his butt off to make everyone a success story and those on the Left, white people, don't forget, we have a few blacks that want to Impeach him for that. To the dumbbells and hoodlums forget the color let's make every citizen a success. Some one remind the Left there is a world outside of America that wants what we have FREEDOM!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Governor ! If you were a Russian " spy " being paid to deliver dirt on Mr. Trump, would you submit such obvious claptrap and expect to get paid ? Either the Russkies or Steele made the whole thing up out of whole, but badly perforated, cloth - my money's on Steele. He did as much " research " as...Bishop Ussher when he was " tasked " to come up with a date for the creation of the Universe - they probably threw darts to determine the date ;-} LOL !!!!

    Thanks for the unbiased update on the Epstein action. We need to have the question/questions on the 2020 census form to validate how many Illegals are really here, and should they not want to fill out the form then cut any benefits off provided by the state or federal government. We have many United States Citizens whom are homeless, have children who don't have homes and are hungry, and we have a large group of Veterans who are homeless. When we take care of our own then the Illegals can get help but not until United States Citizens are taken care of.
