I don’t know if Acosta behaved badly re Epstein. I do know that that was the only time Epstein was ever convicted, and that he was feted by Hollywood and politicians after that.

'But the persistent singling out... it got to a point where it was just outright disrespectful... the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color,' she added.

The above quote is AOC playing the race card on Speaker Pelosi. You've been out-flanked, Nancy. Good luck getting that toothpaste back in the tube!!

I'm looking for someone in the national media to take my account of my experiences with a child pedophile ring in the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism - Atlantia, east coast). The perp is dead now but his protectors include a DC attorney and a DC public defender.

The incidents involve 5 pre-teen girls of single mothers, death threats, honey pot traps to blackmail witnesses, other forms of witness intimidation ("if you continue to pursue this, people you care about will be hurt") and threats of lawfare to silence accusers (along the lines of "maybe you aren't being libelous, but it will cost you $30k and 3 years to prove your innocence, do you have that?")

I'm not looking to make any money or to write a book for profit. I had to back down because of the threats, but it still nags at me when I try to sleep. I need to put it to rest. They shouldn't be allowed to get away with this, and they will likely use the same playbook again.

If you have any contacts that might be interested, say perhaps in a "It's not just Esptein" angle, please put them in touch.

And the beat goes on. The nasty London scum pretends Trump is not respecting them for their act that they are our ally...who merely wants to destroy our President and stay vassals of the German Reich. But boy did the bet on the wrong winner and stubbornly want to pretend that makes them superior. And Trump laughs.

I doubt Epstein will see 67.

Acosta should not self-abort. He should aid Trump to pursue the alleged pedophile network, and others who prey on the young, including the Pro-Choice Cult, not limited to the trans-social, abortionists, transgender spectrum indoctrination and medical corruption, child trafficking (e.g. immigration reform), etc.

I think it would be interesting to have the FBI examine the bank records of Alex Acosta and Barry Krisher around the time of Epstein's indictment and plea bargain, plus the bank records of the Cy Vance around the time Epstein was taken off the sex offender registry. Why would anyone ever take someone who pleaded guilty to sex with underage victims other than bribery?

Inga wants justice for the raped girls that she is using as props to score cheap shots at people she loathes. She regards these girls as tools to pleasure her ego, just like Epstein.

Isn't it obvious that Epstein was a black mailer?
He started his career teaching math at NY's Dalton School. This gave him access to young girls.
After two years at Dalton, he got a job offer from Bear-Stearns. Three years later he was made a partner. Not bad for a guy who never finished college.

I guess we really need to see just how strong the case was against Epstein in 2008, keeping in mind that that the charges he faced in Florida didn't really have an angle for federal prosecution- the case at that time would have had to include trafficking for that work.

Acosta's presser leaves a lot of unanswered questions, in my opinion, and here is part of the problem- the people asking the questions today insisted on asking all the wrong ones- the press people there today are fucking morons.

When I'm feeling down and thinking myself a religious skeptic, doing mental math (from multiplication tables to calculus) seems to help with racing thoughts.

Originally I thought the best way to shut up the Trump attackers that were using Acosta's handling of the FL Epstein case against him was to let Acosta go. He hasn't really been doing the job Trump wanted him to do at Labor any way. Seeing how the events of the last 24 hours have unfolded I was clearly wrong. This is the latest example of why I'm not Trump. Winning.

Good luck trying to find out what the derogatory slurs were. It matters whether it's zingers or crap. Whatever it was, it's a hate crime and not a political statement, from the outset.

About Mr. Epstein's girls.
Where were the parents? They did not notice their children flashing big rolls of money, etc.? Absent from home to visit on "Pedophile Island", etc.?
If they were runaways, where were the state children's services, etc.?

Mr. Epstein's environment, legitimate and illegitimate, would have been thick with cops of different agencies sniffing for drugs, etc., and of course legitimate protection of expensive property. They had to notice the girls and report it up the chain.
So, why was nothing done about it?

These things did not happen in a vacuum.

But professional sports is not about "work." It is show business and star quality bringing in the moolah.

Something stinks there. How does a guy without a college degree get a job from BS in the first place, then go on to make junior partner that quickly, then get enough clientele for a hedge fund, without a college degree?

So, for example, you have a large chunk of money to invest. Are you going to invest it with an Epstein? Or a finance major from Wharton? Maybe he was a brilliant salesman, and that overcame the sort of formal credentials that people tend to look for when entrusting them with their money. He never seems to have had a reputation of being a whiz with making money for people, and his hedge fund apparently doesn’t have an army of shrewd money managers working for it, but rather a bunch of clerks.

Blackmail may be the answer. One thought may be that he started pimping out the Dalton girls, and the resulting blackmail list got him the clientele he used to make partner at BS. As I understand it, ability to bring in money is one of the big ways to make partner in that type of business, and he could use BS money management capabilities to actually not lose money for his clientele. Seems pretty slick - the blackmail money is hidden by running it through a very reputable money management company. His blackmail targets wouldn’t show blackmail or prostitution charges on their charge cards or bank statements, but rather just money flowing into an investment account with a very legitimate investment company. After getting booted from BS, the natural next step is a hedge fund.

Just a bit of speculation.

Women’s soccer i this country has long been thought to be filled with a lot of lesbians, secondly only to softball. And Rapino is the butchest looking on the team. What are the odds that she is the bull dyke lesbian on the team? Her hair, alone, both it’s butch cut, and color, set her off from her teammates.

Maybe she is, and maybe she isn’t, a lesbian. But if she truly wanted gay acceptance here, she shouldn’t have gone all unAmerican, refusing to go to the White House to celebrate the American team victory. She seems to want her cake and to be able to eat it herself - she seems to want gay acceptance from people she is shitting on by refusing to share her victory with the country by shitting on the President they elected, and the White House they own.

Why do NASCAR drivers tend to earn a lot more money, and are a lot more well known, than our world champion women’s soccer team? One big reason is the NASCAR wraps itself in the American flag. Rapino, in particular, seems to run as far and as fast as she can in the opposite direction. She doesn’t like us, so why should we like her?

Which gets to why there was some anti LGBTxyz sentiment aimed at her. Probably much of the country believes her to be a lesbian, and that sentiment is assumed to be hurtful to her as a result. They don’t like her personally because she dislikes them, their views, their religion, and their lifestyles. Antigay sentiments are an obvious way to hit back at her, personally, for what she said about and to them.

More on the Democrat SA who went after Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter but let Epstein off for free.

The former Palm Beach County State Attorney had made national news three times during his career. Once when he went after Rush Limbaugh, then after Ann Coulter, two Republicans, and when, after being handed the case of Epstein, a co-founder of the Clinton Global Initiative, he gave him a pass.

Barry Krischer is a Democrat. Jeffrey Epstein is a billionaire donor to Democrats.

As Chief Prosecutor, Krischer had made his reputation with a zero-tolerance policy of prosecuting juveniles as adults. But after Epstein had abused underage girls, Krischer, according to the detective on the case, ignored police efforts to charge him with four counts of unlawful sexual activity with a minor and instead the billionaire abuser was indicted only on a minor charge of solicitation of prostitution.


Yeah. Those Democrats have good party discipline.
