Jury convicts Ghislaine Maxwell -- so
who's next? UPDATE: Princely panic?

Original Article

It took many hours of deliberation, but a jury finally reached a verdict in the trial of the year — one that should have been the trial of the year ten years ago. Ghislaine Maxwell could face decades in prison for sex trafficking of minors after getting convicted of five out of six counts in her indictment. As NBC News reports, Jeffrey Epstein’s literal partner in crime might also face a new trial for two counts of perjury: British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell was convicted Wednesday of five federal sex trafficking charges after a jury concluded that she played a pivotal part in recruiting and grooming teenage girls to be sexually abused

Now that Ms. Maxwell has been found guilty, will they go after the "Johns" who were involved in this? Will they charge her parents for child endangerment?

The list of wealthy hotshots who traveled on the Lolita express is long and detailed. I rather expect that many wealthy people are seeking legal advice with regard to which countries we do not have extradition treaties with. I hear it's lovely in Brazil this time of year of hemp land of hope.

The case against Ghislaine Maxwell ends with this trial. Maybe perjury later, but that's it. Maxwell, you see, is just small fry and prosecutors (or prosecutors's bosses) will be quite content to let the big fish wiggle their tails and swim away unhooked. This will be a perfect example of two tiered justice. Only little people pay taxes according to Leona Helmsley, and by that reckoning only little people go to jail. Hillary Clinton and her friends should be in jail because of the e-mail scandal and Steele dossier. She and they are not. In the Epstein affair rich and famous perverts will never, ever face any indictment or jury trial. John Durham, Special Counsel, is spending millions to delay, delay, and delay...running out the clock of the statute of limitations, this for the 2016 elections fraud denying Trump another term. Welcome to equal justice under the law.

Did you notice even FOX did not do any followup on who these poor children were being procured for.. Just Epstein and Maxwell sexually abused these kids. They manged to leave off the part about why they did this, the connection to his ability to make money somehow, and who all flew on that plane.

Is it possible that "I never had sex with that woman, Miss Lewinsky, not a single time" (finger wagging) Billy Jeff could be involved in a sex scandal involving minors? Do you think he is capable of sex crimes against children, and that he would fly to a diabolical island for said perversion? Bill Clinton? Maybe ;>)

If she is shrewd, and she seems to be, she has many copies of every email, text, flight log, photo, video and audio ever made in any of Epstein’s residences including his jet, which she has spread around to numerous trusted people who will dump them on the public at just the right moment. And that moment is now.

Dead woman walking. (not quite a paraphrase of that nun's book, but,, there are too many big people involved, and she has the goods on them.) If the FBI is willing to devote its full resources to track down a diary kept by Dementia Jo's daughter, Ashley, while she was in drug rehab, imagine what they will do to get their hands on all of Ghislaine's evidence.

The judge sealed the files. Why does anyone think there will be a next? The police have the tapes and have talked to all the accusers. They know the whole story, and have buried it. The prosecution knows everything already. They don't need to hear from Ghislaine, who will be buried deep in a prison for the rest of her life.

Officially, it is over and no one else will be prosecuted. That being said, information has a way of leaking out over the years. The only unknown is how Maxwell will react after she is sentenced to prison with all appeals denied.

It’s over, they are exposing Andy because they can’t do anything to him. They are going to smear the royal family but it doesn’t matter much because Red has done a good job of that already. If she had any docs I think she would have used them. She could be keeping her mouth shut because it’s better than being dead

Democrats are putting the squeeze on Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), as they race the clock to try to figure out what, if any, filibuster changes can pass muster in a 50-50 Senate. Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer’s decision to force a vote on changes to the rules by Jan. 17 puts Democrats on a high-profile collision course with their own colleagues absent an agreement, an effort that the New York Democrat acknowledges is an “uphill fight.” Democrats, under pressure from their own colleagues and outside groups, are scrambling to bring the negotiations with their conservative colleague to a close as they vow to bring the issue to a head

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, D., took heat Wednesday after blaming thousands of drivers for being on the road only to be left stranded on Interstate 95 due to heavy snowfall that crippled snow removal crews. "We gave warnings, and people need to pay attention to these warnings, and the less people that are on the highways when these storms hit, the better," Northam told The Washington Post.A sitting senator, Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., was among the stranded drivers Tuesday. He documented his nightmarish commute on Twitter, finally reaching the Capitol after 27 hours.

The latest proclamation from King Joe runs counter to the buzz promoted by the media. Supposedly, Joe Manchin had returned to negotiations on Joe Biden’s Build Back Better plan, and might even have signaled a willingness to do a nuclear-option carve-out on the filibuster for the election-federalizing SB1.Not so fast, Manchin said a few minutes ago. First, no one’s changed positions at all on BBB and there haven’t been any new talks so far: ( Snip for video)That’s pretty clearly been dead for a while.

President Biden and the Democrats are — simultaneously — working to stave off the failure of his economic agenda, control a once-again rampaging pandemic, mitigate the effects of the worst inflation since 1982, and rescue democracy from new laws that permit the GOP to nullify the next election, all before they likely lose both chambers

It was inevitable that the implosion of the Biden administration would lure former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton back onto the political stage. The voters showed her the door five years ago, yet she remains unable to grasp what they were trying to tell her. The latest manifestation of this learning disability began last month with an online lecture series in which Clinton holds forth on “The Power of Resilience.” The series culminates with a cringeworthy reading, complete with feigned attempt to hold back tears, of the speech she purportedly prepared in anticipation of victory in 2016.

Agrowing body of academic research is chronicling the toll that pandemic lockdowns imposed on children, warning that the mental and social anguish the policies caused outweigh the health protections.The “overall impact of COVID-19 restrictions on the mental health and well-being of children and adolescents is likely to be severe,” an Oxford University professor warned in a recent analysis. A study published by Brown University said lockdowns, mandates and other restrictions are likely to create a generation of children with lower IQs and signs of social brain damage.

Tuesday afternoon, President Biden demonstrated why he has been no more successful than former President Trump in controlling the coronavirus, despite the advantage of vaccines and therapeutics that were not available to the latter. Speaking at the White House, Biden outlined additions to his “COVID-19 Winter Plan” that illustrate his administration’s inability to adapt to rapidly changing conditions. He assured Americans that we are not going back to March 2020, but his strategy belies that claim. It similarly emphasizes increased testing, deploying medical personnel to overcrowded hospitals, as well as rushing gloves, masks, and ventilators to Michigan, Wisconsin, Vermont, and other states currently enduring case surges.

In high school, I visited a local hospital each Friday evening with other volunteers to play bingo, soccer, and other games with the mental health patients. In bingo, players would become confused and angry when the numbers on their cards were not called, and they'd sometimes demand that I go and hit the person calling them. Likewise, on the soccer field, patients would cry "foul!" when an opponent took the ball from them or scored a goal. They didn't understand what was going on, and they'd sometimes get cross about it. They could, of course, be forgiven for not understanding how the games were played.

Their question Tuesday went to the heart of the former police officer's claim that she made a tragic mistake when she grabbed her gun, instead of her Taser, and shot Wright during a traffic stop April 11 in the Minneapolis suburb of Brooklyn Center. Prosecutors had highlighted the differences in the look, feel and weight between Potter's gun and Taser, and had promised jurors they would be able to handle them during deliberations.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended on Tuesday that Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine recipients get a booster dose five months after their second shot instead of the previously approved six months. The agency endorsed the shorter period after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized the reduced timeline on Monday for those who received the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. The CDC still suggests that Johnson & Johnson and Moderna recipients receive their boosters two months and six months, respectively, after completing the primary series. The CDC also suggested moderately and severely immunocompromised 5-to 11-year-olds get an additional dose about a month after their second shot,

The 600-member House of Delegates, the CTU’s governing body, decided to refuse to teach in the classroom until January 18 or until the virus infection rate hits below the threshold set last year. As pledged, Chicago Public Schools will cancel classes on Wednesday but keep schools open for students. Schools had resumed in-person learning Monday following the two-week winter break. Last year’s school closure threshold is a test positivity rate of ten percent or higher that has increased for the previous seven consecutive days,

More recently he deplored the “woke mob” and “cancel culture.” The woke mob became truly apoplectic when Rodgers wasn’t clear about his vaccination status and then spoke with popular podcaster Joe Rogan, subsequently saying he had availed himself of the same COVID-19 treatment Rogan claimed to have used successfully. You know, the so-called “horse de-wormer.” Which is not a Dr. Fauci-approved “vaccine.”
