In the hours before accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein's apparent suicide early Saturday morning, the two corrections officers assigned to watch over the disgraced financier in a special unit of New York City's federal lockup were reportedly in the midst of working overtime shifts -- and one of the individuals wasn't a regular guard, according to a union head. Epstein, 66, was found unconscious in his cell Saturday at the Metropolitan Correctional Center and later pronounced dead — immediately prompting questions about how such a high-profile inmate could have killed himself inside an ultra-secure facility just over two weeks after officials believed Epstein may have previously attempted suicide.

There is already a report this AM that includes the tidbit that his suicide watch ended at the end of July.

Hit submit too soon. The suicide watch was pulled on the decision of the prison warden and the prison psychologist.

I wonder what the life expectancy of these two guards is. It will be interesting to see what type of accident befalls them in the next few weeks. They probably won't even have time to cash the checks.

The prison should have hired some underage girls to keep an eye on Epstein. That would have allowed the girls to have some spending money, and Epstein would not have killed himself. (I always look for practical solutions.)

How is it that the Blind Sheik (for example of a high risk inmate) survived so many years in prison, a mastermind of the first bombing of the Towers? They wanted him alive. If the Authorities wanted Epstein alive, he would be alive today. Too many very powerful people, who witnessed the fallout from the MeToo hysteria and the Weinstein downfall, were NOT going to let the pervy perv take them down, too. Every single person connected with Epstein --accusers, prison guards, shrinks, all the people on the List of Potential Perps, members of the Bar, on either side-- must be investigated. We've had it up to the tops of our heads with the secret deals and prevarications --LIES-- duplicity, special privileges, the different standards of "justice" which is no justice at all.

So now if you work overtime, which people usually jump at because you get paid a premium or are compensated with time off, it's an excuse for derelection of duty and non-complance with SOP? Beam me up....

The Union that will surely fraudulently blame President Trump, should immediately trot out the two detention guards so that they can speak for themselves?

Yeah. One was not a regular. The new guy shows up wearing a suit, a nose broken more than once, he's six feet 4, weighing 250, with a Sicilian last name, told the other guard to take a hike, and when the guard came back the new guy was gone and Epstein was dead. The warden remarked how everytime that guy shows up someone dies. Very strange indeed.

These are all government UNION employees. You would think that if they were working overtime it is because they WANTED to. Instead they are trying to portray themselves as working in some kind of "sweat shop" environment...

So now working overtime is so debilitating that an employee is unable to function at all. Also, the employee who wasn't a regular guard hadn't been sufficiently trained to walk by a cell and look inside.

The specter of white supremacy haunts America. Let us empower the government to crush it. Just yesterday, “the deplorables” were to be deplored because they were “racist, sexist, homophobic,” clingers to “God and guns,” and Russian dupes to boot. Today, the agility and unanimity with which our politicians and media—heck, the ruling class—have shifted to indicting roughly 72 percent of the population as white supremacists, likely violent, would fill with envy their homologues in China, Cuba, North Korea, and other tyrannical places. By comparison, Joseph Goebbels had sloppy message discipline. Not even the Soviets in their salad days were so “on message!” One may suppose that our ruling class merely intends

Labeling Democrats’ agenda “socialist” does leave a taint in voters’ minds, according to a poll released Tuesday by the American Action Network, which said there’s an opportunity for Republicans. In order to harness that opposition, the conservative-leaning group said, GOP politicians must figure out ways to connect the policies to harmful consequences for average voters. The AAN had the Tarrance Group poll 1,000 people in 30 congressional districts. To some, it posed questions with about a policy such as the Green New Deal and labeled it as socialist, while in other cases the socialist label was absent. It made a difference. “Highlighting the liberal view as ‘socialist’ creates +10 points of n

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo is facing backlash after suggesting that calling an Italian "Fredo" is equivalent to the N-word. Cuomo, 49, made the comparison after someone called him "Fredo," a reference to the weak character from The Godfather. “No, punk-ass b--ches from the Right call me ‘Fredo.’ My name is Chris Cuomo. I'm an anchor on CNN,” the newsman said. “‘Fredo’ was from The Godfather. He was a weak brother and they use that as an Italian slur — are any of you Italian?”

One bully was taught a very harsh lesson in an unreal viral video. Watch the unbelievable video below. (video) It really doesn’t get much worse than that video above. Not at all. There’s nothing, and I mean nothing, that’s better than watching a bully get lit up. In a video posted on LiveLeak, a bully can be seen taunting and verbally going after a kid with an injured arm.

The affirmative consent proposal went doubt to defeat by a vote of 256-165.

Iranians who gathered in Islam’s holy city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia over the weekend for the annual hajj pilgrimage called for Israel’s destruction and chanted “Death to America.” Every year, millions of Muslims make the annual religious pilgrimage to Mecca, which began Friday. At a “disavowal of polytheists” ceremony in Mecca, the reading of a message from Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei reportedly prompted a crowd of Iranian hajj pilgrims to chant, “Death to America!

Accused sex child trafficker Jeffrey Epstein was discovered Saturday inside his New York City prison cell with a bedsheet wrapped around his neck that was tied to his bunk bed. “The convicted pedophile, who was 6 feet tall, apparently killed himself by kneeling toward the floor and strangling himself with the makeshift noose, a law enforcement source said Monday,” according to the New York Post. Law enforcement received a call at 6:39 a.m. local time that Epstein was in cardiac arrest and was later pronounced dead at NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital. Epstein was facing charges of sex trafficking that stemmed from activities over a period of three years in the early 2000s.

Joe Biden pledged to eliminate all of President Donald Trump’s tax cuts when campaigning in Iowa over the weekend. Biden, who has made no effort to hide his ambition to raise taxes if elected in 2020, told a crowd in the Hawkeye State that by eliminating the tax cuts Trump passed during his first year in office, the country could spend more on healthcare and other items. The former vice president, however, did not just promise to roll back some of the cuts for the wealthy, like his other 2020 competitors, but he pledged to “eliminate” all of them.

Here are a few things I know firsthand about being in jail. First and foremost, you have virtually no control over your life and surroundings. You can’t get so much as an aspirin without authorization. In most jails, you can’t wear a belt, or shoelaces, or keep a razor in your cell. You have no privacy, no sense of dignity, and no rights. And in a well-run jail, high-profile prisoners have virtually no chance of killing themselves. So the alleged suicide of Jeffrey Epstein, the 66-year-old financier with powerful American and foreign friends who was about to stand trial for allegedly sexually abusing dozens of girls, many of them underage,

Is it possible prosecutors have lost track of Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged co-conspirator in his pedophile ring? For the past few weeks, rumors have circulated that she’s 400 pounds and living in Florida, or that she’s living the high life in London or the Continent, but according to the Washington Post, authorities are having a hard time locating her. Those who know her say that it’s possible she is as much of a Houdini as Epstein. Both of them liked having secrets, and the way those secrets kept people off balance. “Jeffrey always wanted to give the impression that he was an international man of mystery—‘I control everyone
