Ghislane Maxwell’s Attorney Refers to
“Former Astronaut Senator” Who Flew
on Jeffrey Epstein’s Lolita Express

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 12/3/2021 12:34:00 PM

On the first day of the federal sex trafficking trial of former Jeffrey Epstein “madame” Ghislane Maxwell, defense attorney Bobbi Sternheim referred to a former astronaut turned US Senator who had flown on Jeffrey Epstein’s infamous “Lolita Express” private plane. (snip)There are five astronauts who later became US Senators, and more who have been elected to the House of Representatives. This list includes now-deceased John Glenn (R-OH), Harrison “Jack” Schmitt (R-NM), Jake Garn, (R-UT), Bill Nelson (D-FL), and Mark Kelly (D-AZ), the latter being the only among the small group currently serving in the Senate. Sternheim didn’t elaborate on which specific Senator had traveled with Epstein.

Being defense attorneys, they will throw every piece of nonsense into the fray. All that matters is 1) Underage girls were made available to males 2) which men took advantage of that offering and 3) what part the lady on trial had in procuring the females. It does not matter who flew on the plane unless they were brought to and misused the girls.

Did every ride on Epstein's plane end up at Epstein's private island? This is what we're led to believe.

The allegation states, "a former astronaut who became a Senator." Garn was sitting Senator who muscled his way onto a shuttle flight, so the described sequence of events would not seem to apply to him. Nelson was in the House at the time of his space junket, which is a little murkier, but one wouldn't generally describe him as a "former astronaut" based on that flight. That leaves Glenn, Schmitt, and Kelly. I also note with some irony that with the 1986 loss of Challenger and its crew, the Congresscritters decided that space flight was dangerous, and the junkets ceased.

Harrison Schmitt is in his mid-80s (born 1935) and served in the Senate 1977 to 1983 when Epstein was still in his 20s. I don't think Epstein had a jet in the late 70s. And Maxwell was only 15 years old when Schmitt was sworn in as a US Senator. I think we can count "Jack" out of the Lolita Express passenger list.

It appears that both Epstein and Maxwell were all about getting dirt on anyone, especially someone they could blackmail...Pardon BLM, blackmail is NOT a racist term so you can settle down now. Anyway pardon the blackstraction... I find it very interesting that lots of well connected people thought Epstein was their friend...He provided under age kids (both sexes) and the well connected had their way with them. It's pretty obvious this whole thing was about sex trafficking!

Critical race theory has become the philosophic foundation supporting a Marxist communist agenda sweeping American society, according to philosophy professor Jason Hill. Acting as racial managers or agents for African Americans, practitioners of critical race theory (CRT) are after power and aim to “destroy all those foundational values, all those codified values, and principles that we use in times of crisis,” Hill said in a recent interview with Epoch TV’s “American Thought Leaders” program. Critical race theorists “want to first erase personal identity, then erase history, erase those codified values to usher in a new, what I would call, Marxist communist agenda in our society,” he added.

But, apparently, there was more to this story. Cuomo was suspended after text messages released by the New York attorney general’s office showed Cuomo was actively assisting with his brother’s response to the allegations of sexual misconduct against him and exploiting his media connections to dig up dirt on Andrew’s accusers.
