“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

Posted By: Pluperfect, 7/18/2019 5:50:08 AM

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.

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, 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.

Tomorrow will be Groundhog Day for the media. In the eponymous 1993 comedy, a reporter assigned to cover the annual event finds himself stuck in a time loop, condemned to repeat the same day in a kind of Nietzschean eternal return. Phil hates the town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, hates the yokels who live there, hates the kitschiness of the ceremony. It’s living hell, but he can’t get out of the day. With the release of the full Mueller report on April 18, 2019, the media entered their first Groundhog Day. They pored over the report, which was supposed to prove conclusively that Donald Trump had colluded with the Russian government

The $25 million damages judgment plus the over $6.5 million attorney’s fees and expenses award, puts Oberlin College almost $32 million in debt to Gibson’s Bakery and its owners. Post-judgment interest in Ohio is 5%, which if my math is correct, on $32 million equals $1.6 million a year just in interest, or $4,384 per day. So that $32 million is going to keep growing as the inevitable appeal winds its way through the courts. Interest aside, Oberlin College doesn’t want Gibson’s Bakery to start collecting the judgment by seizing bank accounts, college equipment, and anything else they can get their hands on. Not surprisingly, Oberlin College

Sam Zahir planned to open a franchise of the burger chain Burgerim in Dearborn, Mich., according to The Detroit Free Press. He made the decision to delay its opening indefinitely after receiving threats from people opposed to the burger restaurant's Israeli origins. Burgerim, which combines the word "burger" with the Hebrew suffix "-im," meaning "many burgers," was founded in 2011 by an Israeli woman and opened its first location in Tel Aviv.

Contrary to the legend, Benjamin Franklin probably didn’t say that “beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” But somebody said it and the thought is so delicious that it deserves a modern com­panion. To wit: Politicians are proof that God has a sense of humor and wants us to laugh. Take Mayor Putz, whose entire mayoralty is a joke. He is so “disappointed” in Con Ed’s handling of blackouts and the lack of “accountability” that, mounting the political high horse, he is demanding a probe. Fair enough, but under the same theory, gumshoes should probe why some Brooklyn streets were knee-deep in water after Monday’s storm.

Andrew Weissmann, who served as one of Robert Mueller’s top deputies on the Russia probe, offered a Ukrainian oligarch a sweetheart deal in 2017 in exchange for information on President Donald Trump, according to a new report. In July 2017, Weissmann, who has been labeled Mueller’s “pit bull” because of his aggressive prosecutorial style, met with attorneys representing Dmitry Firtash, an energy magnate who was indicted on bribery charges in 2014, reports The Hill. The story cites sources familiar with Weissmann’s offer and defense memos written in meetings with the prosecutor.

Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell’s long march towards remaking the federal judiciary is moving along. Just this week, the Third Circuit “flipped” to majority Republican-appointees, the Second Circuit is on the brink of flipping, and several other evenly split Circuits are likely to go Republican. Ed Whelan summarizes: As anticipated last fall when Judge Thomas Vanaskie announced his decision to take senior status, the Senate’s confirmation earlier this week of Peter Phipps to Vanaskie’s vacancy means that the Third Circuit will have a majority of its judges in active service—eight of fourteen—who were appointed by Republican presidents.

New Budget Deal Puts Final Nail

President Trump and congressional leaders are nearing a deal that would raise the discretionary-spending caps by $320 billion over two years and offset less than one-quarter of those costs (and even those offsets would take a decade to materialize). The budget deal would essentially repeal the final two years of the 2011 Budget Control Act and raise the baseline for future discretionary spending by nearly $2 trillion over the decade. This represents a fitting conclusion of the Budget Control Act — the crown jewel of the 2011 “tea-party Congress.” The decade-long shredding of these hard-fought budget constraints mirrors the shredding of Republican credibility on fiscal responsibility.The story begins

The recent tragic drowning in the Rio Grande of a young father from El Salvador, Óscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez, and his two-year old daughter Angie, sparked recriminations across the political spectrum. Democrats pounced on the Trump administration’s immigration policies, while President Trump blamed House Democrats’ failure to pass legislation to fix the nation’s immigration laws. Apart from the Washington rhetoric, El Salvador’s president blamed something else: his own country’s economic and crime challenges. While it is unlikely that the conditions El Salvador’s president describes would justify a migrant’s approval for asylum in the U.S., migrants keep coming. To obtain asylum, a migrant must establish a credible fear of persecution

Greta Thunberg has been thrust into the spotlight, tagged as the child who will lead us away from our inevitable climate disaster — if only we let her. Adults hang on her words, regard her as an omniscient oracle, insist that we are in the presence of our savior. Thunberg’s “voice lets us know we’re in disavowal, and that we’d better wake up.

Far-left “Squad” member Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) spoke at the NAACP convention over the weekend and railed against the GOP tax cuts in a pitch for her anti-poverty BOOST Act, promising to take money from the rich and give it “back to the people that earned it.” Tlaib introduced her anti-poverty legislation – the Building Our Opportunities to Survive and Thrive (BOOST) Act – last month and spoke about it at the NAACP convention over the weekend.

Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Monday warned that an economic crash was coming and said she had a plan to stop it. Pointing to high debt and a sagging manufacturing sector, Ms. Warren said the economy teeters on the edge of disaster. “The country’s economic foundation is fragile. A single shock could bring it all down. And the Trump administration’s reckless behavior is increasing the odds of just such a shock,” the Massachusetts Democrat wrote in an op-ed in Medium. The alarm took a swipe at the strong economy that is President Trump’s chief argument for reelection. It also highlighted Ms. Warren’s agenda of wealth redistribution.

A 42-second clip posted to social media on Monday shows the girl, identified as 15-year-old Janise Harris, walking with a group of several other girls and at least one boy when one of the girls suddenly punched her from behind. A witness who was already recording the teens walking then immediately started laughing as the other girls – as many as five at one point — joined the unprovoked attack. “They beating her,” one teen said while chuckling.

The $25 million damages judgment plus the over $6.5 million attorney’s fees and expenses award, puts Oberlin College almost $32 million in debt to Gibson’s Bakery and its owners. Post-judgment interest in Ohio is 5%, which if my math is correct, on $32 million equals $1.6 million a year just in interest, or $4,384 per day. So that $32 million is going to keep growing as the inevitable appeal winds its way through the courts. Interest aside, Oberlin College doesn’t want Gibson’s Bakery to start collecting the judgment by seizing bank accounts, college equipment, and anything else they can get their hands on. Not surprisingly, Oberlin College
