“It’s Going to Be Staggering, the Amount
of Names”: As the Jeffrey Epstein
Case Grows More Grotesque,
Manhattan and DC Brace for Impact

Original Article

The Jeffrey Epstein case is an asteroid poised to strike the elite world in which he moved. No one can yet say precisely how large it is. But as the number of women who’ve accused the financier (at least, that’s what he claimed to be) of sexual assault grows to grotesque levels—there are said to be more than 50 women who are potential victims—a wave of panic is rippling through Manhattan, DC, and Palm Beach, as Epstein’s former friends and associates rush to distance themselves, while gossiping about who might be ensnared. Donald Trump’s labor secretary, Alexander Acosta, architect of the original 2007 non-prosecution agreement that let Epstein off

This rambling article concludes with equating Clinton with Trump regarding Epstein. The writer is lying about Clinton ( he was heavily involved) and Trump ( a passing acquaintance from years ago). Don't buy what Vanity Fair ,a known Trump hater and Clinton, lover is selling.

What I'm waiting for are the politicians that will be involved and leave in disgrace. My bet, there are MANY and those politicians are VERY worried.

I'm waiting for the first preemptive admission from someone who hopes to salvage their reputation (as in "I Was there but I didn't participate"). And why haven't any names been leaked yet? Are there no Republicans or celebrity Christians on the list? So far all we have are the old denials from Slick, Princess Andrew and A. Dershowitz. Ramona (the Pest)

I am skeptical of this being the undoing of the Deep State. However, if it is, it is going to be one heck of an end to the misery and corruption and who knows what else these evil men and women have committed. You don’t hear very much about media moguls being involved so that is going to be an interesting revelation. Have they managed to keep their names out of it hoping they can get a pass by going easy on some of the movers and shakers that are neck deep in the debauchery. Who knows what is going to happen but if the guilty are punished, we may all be shocked by the names that will be forthcoming. There has to be a lot of anxiety in the hearts of many of the wealthiest, most powerful and influential people in the world today.

At least, Sean is no longer saying the tick tock thing, but we are tired of waiting for the main attraction. Did I read that Mr. Horowitz has had another postponement? I don't even remember what he is doing anymore. They are probably waiting until The World Series and then we forget about everything but that. And if it is Vanity Fair, I never read it.

Agree w/#1. There is a lot of what so and so said, accusation and attempts at linkages, but I go back to my earlier question: Has any LEA actually been to Little Saint James Island to gather any physical evidence? It's a US territory for cryin' out loud. Or did Epstein and others bribe LEA into inaction and silence.

Years ago Trump kicked Epstein out of the Mar-A-Largo club for hitting on the young girls. Trump took action and said NO. Show me one example of any of these sleaze balls on the Pervert Express doing the same. They keep trying to smear Trump for hanging with adult models with this Democrat before Trump figured him out and kicked him out. It won't work.

When the dust settles, and settle it will, money plus power equals a licence to anything at anytime to anybody without fear of reprisal. Judges, witnesses, prosecutors, the press, victims ...all will be paid off and threatened. Slaps on the wrists and a few tsk-tsks will be the only punishments meted out. Oh, and some fines that seem large to Deplorables like us will be assessed. And never-ending Congressional committees and non-profit virtue signaling money makers will be ubiquitous for a while. But vermin like Epstein and Clinton and Prince Andrew and Saudi shieks will rape and plunder with impunity. Unless of course those brave honest upstanding rank and file FBI agents do their usual outstanding job. We all know none of the evidence will be destroyed or lost. Right?

I admit that, in a fit of boredom, I read the article. Drivel, mostly teasing names of people that the media doesn't like, and a quick mention of Donald Trump (before he was President) and Slick, trying to make them sound like equal participants. To me, it's nothing more than bubble-gum, another article to try to divert attention from the Spygate scandal. But, I must admit that I hope this makes Slick's anus clench a little tighter for a day or so.

Trump caught a (1) ride from Palm Beach to NYC on Jeffrey’s aircraft. Not with Jeff himself but his son. Not the same as flying to Pedo Island 26 times with underage girls onboard. BTW, the elite of DC and Manhattan aren’t the only group about to be outed as Jeffrey’s guests. There are a lot of household Hollywood names about to be revealed.

It's well documented that Vanity Fair's reporters had this aspect of Epstein's story edited out of their draft stories 10 years ago. Now VF reports it in breathless tones? I would bet my paycheck the list of names tied to this story is exclusively Lefty. If it weren't we would have heard about it already. The control of all media by the Left has created this damn-breaking dynamic. All dirt on all Republicans is uncovered and reported as it happens (formerly called "reporting"). All dirt on Democrats is suppressed, until it reaches tidal-wave proportion. A tidal wave of just Democrats.

The corruption runs so deep in Government that nothing substantial will ever come of this. If you don't believe this. remember that this week is the anniversary of the murder of Mary Jo Kopechne by Ted Kennedy. The days of Public Servants went out with Harry Truman. There are exceptions, I'm sure, but not enough to matter. We are considered the servants to Government, not the other way around.

Two important things ~ the last number I saw about victims actually contacted by DOJ investigators (which does not always mean FBI agents) was "over 200". There were additional comments from sources that "he was flying girls into the USA" All of which means this case is already bigger than something just the SDNY can possibly handle, and the Deep State creeps wasted their time planting Comey's (pzzyhat wearing ) daughter in that field office. They needed her at DOJ in DC if their ambition was to protect the Clintons. Another thing to keep your eyes on is the stories on Jeff Epstein's temple like building on Pedo Island. It had, according to an aerial photo, a large circle ~ presumably a gigantic PIZZA pan, or representation ~ .... and something somebody proposed to be a mass grave (geometric, dug up soil, etc.). An aerial photo of his ranch in New Mexico shows a similar artifact ~ what seems to be a formal garden done in the round ~ perhaps all of this has meaning ~ but wasn't Podesta messed up in this deal as well? Maybe we need to reassess all the commentary on PING PONG PIZZA ~ maybe it's just euphemistic code for something far more sinister (right down to the possibility of subterranean quarters for various purposes) Others have suggested that link, but the pictures of his real estate suggest maybe someone needs to execute some warrants to check all this stuff out.

On the one hand, this IS "Vanity Fair", which, after more than 20 years a subscriber, became such a totally left wing screed that I cancelled my subscription---none of the fluffy Tina Brown stuff left at all. On the OTHER hand, a vast number (I suspect) of people like me have jumped ship, so they may be FORCED to actually offer a decent article without their total bias. Look for the exhonorted Menendez of N.J., Prince Andrew et al. ( But also expect they will go for anyone or anything that even tangentially touches Trump. They just can't help themselves. Which is why I canceled, with only $2.50 left on my subscription---I figured it cos them more than that to do the paper work.)

Gabe Sherman. Scandalmonger. He has a long way to go on this one. As Epstein collected people, so Sherman collects lawyers and others from whom he can collect quotes. This could turn out to be very interesting, but Sherman is not there yet. Just teasing. That is what VF does. More interesting to me is Graydon Carter’s having squelched the Epstein story years ago. Days after Jeffrey E. Epstein was arrested and charged with sex trafficking by federal prosecutors, the fallout spilled into the media world, with a former Vanity Fair journalist saying that she had been prepared to report on accusations of sexual misconduct against the financier years ago, but that the magazine had declined to print them. The journalist, Vicky Ward, leveled her accusation against the magazine’s former editor Graydon Carter in several forums, https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/09/business/media/vicky-ward-jeffrey-epstein-vanity-fair.html I’ve read her work. She did real investigation. Gabe Sherman just runs around and collects hearsay. A smear artist. He’s lying in the weeds, waiting - as ever - for something on PDJT.

Sorry, Beto O’Rourke. The press has found another. Like a speed-dater, newsrooms have moved on already.

In 2018, the same publication declared of its last fling: “[T]his has been the summer of Beto – a giddy campaign season during which descriptive clichés like ‘Kennedy-esque’ and ‘punk-rock Democrat’ have abounded.’” But that was then.

A new national CNN poll of the 2020 Democratic primary has some pretty brutal numbers for Kamala Harris. When CNN last polled the presidential race shortly after the first Democratic debate in June, Harris was on Joe Biden’s heels, trailing just 17 percent to 22 percent. But according to the latest survey by CNN, conducted August 15 to 18, Biden has rebounded to 29 percent, while Harris has dropped all the way down to 5 percent, tied for fourth place with South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg. What went wrong for Harris? The second Democratic debate was a clear defeat for the California senator, but it’s now also obvious

The statement was made out to be a lot worse than it was, but it proved fatal for Romney's hopes. The idea that he would disparage or write off 47% of Americans fit perfectly into the reputation that the media had tried to create for him: as a heartless venture capitalist eager to outsource American jobs and capable

President Trump will move Wednesday to cancel the family “loophole” that’s allowed illegal-immigrant parents and children to pour into the U.S., proposing new rules that would replace the 2015 Flores Settlement court order that created a de facto catch-and-release policy for the families. According to details provided by an administration official, migrant families could be held in detention together while their cases are heard by immigration judges. That would supersede the 20-day limit imposed by the federal judge in Flores. If the families can be held in detention, they can be deported, security experts say, and once people in Central America see an increase in deportations, they’ll stop coming.

The two have long vacationed in the swanky destination over the summer, but they looked worlds away from their normally polished look, with Bill wearing athletic gear and Hillary in a baggy short-sleeved sweatshirt. In past years, they have brought along their two dogs for the leisurely walk, but this time the two were alone, apart from security detail following closely behind.The couple seemed to be in good spirits as they talked with locals

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says the Electoral College is a racist “scam” that should be abolished. The Democratic congresswoman posted an Instagram story Monday that started with her driving along a deserted highway and joking about how many votes there are in rural America. “We’re coming to you live from the Electoral College,” Ms. Ocasio-Cortez said, National Review reported. “Many votes here, as you can see. Very efficient way to choose leadership of the country. I mean I can’t think of any other way, can you?”

No one set out to turn the airwaves into a political weapon—much less deputize talk-radio hosts as the ideological enforcers of a major American political party. Instead the story of how the GOP establishment lost its power over the Republican message—and eventually the party itself—begins with frantic AM radio executives and a former Top 40 disc jockey, Rush Limbaugh. In the late 1980s, AM radio was desperate for new content. Listeners had migrated to FM because music sounded better on there, and advertising dollars had followed. Talk-radio formats offered a lifeline—unique programming that FM didn’t have. And on August 1, 1988, Limbaugh debuted nationally. At the outset, Limbaugh wasn’t

President Trump sparked an uproar in Denmark with a Tuesday night tweet saying he is canceled a scheduled visit to the country, given the prime minister’s lack of “interest in discussing the purchase of Greenland.”“Denmark is a very special country with incredible people, but based on Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen’s comments, that she would have no interest in discussing the purchase of Greenland, I will be postponing our meeting scheduled in two weeks for another time ...” the president tweeted.“... The Prime Minister was able to save a great deal of expense and effort for both the United States and Denmark by being so direct.
Sen. Warren: ‘You Didn’t Build’ That by

Echoing the “You didn’t build that” claim made famous by former President Barack Obama, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) made a pitch for a new tax while addressing the Black Church PAC's Youth Leadership Conference in Atlanta on Saturday. But, Obama’s controversial 2012 comment actually appears to have been a paraphrase of remarks Warren made a year earlier when she was running her successful campaign to unseat incumbent Republican Senator Scott Brown. On Saturday, promoting her proposal for a new “wealth tax,” Democrat presidential hopeful Warren told her audience that, if any of them have built a fortune, they didn’t do it on their own, because “all of us helped” them:

Connecticut residents have turned a wooded conservation area in Fairfield into their own sexual playground — with cops catching multiple people hooking up in the open space, including a pair of 80-somethings. The public escapades went down last week in the Grace Richardson Conservation Area, according to the CTPost. Six people — between the ages 62 and 85 — were arrested and charged with breach of peace and public indecency as part of a surveillance operation conducted by the Fairfield Police Department. Cops had received reports of “lewd and sexual activity” going down in the conservation area and decided to launch an investigation on Aug. 9, the CTPost reports.

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg held a self-described grassroots campaign rally in Bronzeville on Tuesday night, but the overwhelmingly white audience he drew to the event in a historic black neighborhood reinforced the difficulty the Democratic presidential hopeful has had in connecting with African American voters. Buttigieg did not acknowledge the makeup of the audience in his remarks or in answering questions from the 1,000 people at the sold-out event, but did touch on it briefly as he closed the hourlong rally with a plea for his supporters.

To keep your home cool with central air conditioning while also optimizing energy efficiency (and therefore cost), keep the temperature at 78 degrees Fahrenheit or higher. The suggestion comes from Energy Star, a federal program managed jointly by the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency that provides information to consumers about energy efficiency practices that not only save consumers money, but also improve air quality and protect the environment. With record-breaking heat waves becoming the norm, finding ways to beat the heat without busting your budget might seem mystifying, which is why Energy Star provided consumers with a set of energy-saving recommendations on how to best

Toronto - A French artist who used the sounds of nature in his music has been killed by a bear in Canada. Friends said Julien Gauthier (44) was the victim of an attack after a bear entered a camp near the village of Tulita, in the Northwest Territories last week. The police have not yet publicly identified the victim. Gauthier was travelling with a biologist, Camille Toscani, on an expedition in the sparsely populated area, recording new sounds for his work. The pair had planned to travel from Fort Providence to Inuvik, two towns separated by more than 1,500km of wilderness

Over the last weekend, Portland once again became a battleground for two extremist organizations: Antifa and the Proud Boys. There is still more video coming out, but so far, Antifa is proving to be just as vicious and demented as ever. The last time Antifa organized in Portland, journalist Andy Ngo was the only person who was attacked, but the more recent rally proved to be far more violent. Enough is enough: it’s time to designate Antifa a domestic terrorist organization. Make no mistake, the Proud Boys are a hateful, neo-fascist group. But our First Amendment protects the free speech rights of all Americans and our nation
