Epstein Revisited

​ Draining the Swamp?

​ ​With the Saturday arrest of billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein on charges of sex-trafficking minors - days after a judge ordered that nearly 2,000 documents be made public following a 2017 court motion originally brought by filmmaker and author Mike Cernovich, the internet is once again abuzz with speculation over who exactly might be implicated by the new evidence.
​ ​Epstein pleaded guilty to one count of soliciting prostitution from a 14 year old girl in 2008 for which he served 13 months in jail in a sweetheart deal with the DOJ brokered by current Labor Secretary Alex Acosta. The sealed records appeal, meanwhile, stemmed from a separate 2015 defamation lawsuit in New York...
​ ​The case was settled in 2017 and the records were sealed - leading to an appeal by Cernovich, who was later joined by the Miami Herald and several other parties including lawyer Alan Dershowitz - who seeks to clear his name in connection with Epstein's activities.  
​ ​Epstein has spent the bulk of his adult life cultivating relationships with the worlds most powerful men. Flight logs show that from 2001 to 2003, Bill Clinton flew on Epsteins private plane, dubbed The Lolita Express by the press, 26 times. After Epsteins arrest in July 2006, federal tax records show Epstein donated $25,000 to the Clinton Foundation that year.
​ ​House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's Superdelegate daughter Christine quipped on Twitter "It is quite likely that some of our faves are implicated but we must follow the facts and let the chips fall where they may."​...
​ Following a 2018 financial settlement between Florida attorney Bradley Edwards - who represented one of Epstein's accusers, only to be later sued by Epstein, Edwards claimed that Donald Trump was the 'only person' who provided assistance when Edwards served subpoenas and notices to high-profile individuals connected to Epstein.
​ ​Edwards: The only thing that I can say about President Trump is that he is the only person who, in 2009 when I served a lot of subpoenas on a lot of people, or at least gave notice to some pretty connected people, that I want to talk to them, is the only person who picked up the phone and said, let’s just talk.  I’ll give you as much time as you want.  I’ll tell you what you need to know, and was very helpful, in the information that he gave, and gave no indication whatsoever that he was involved in anything untoward whatsoever, but had good information. That checked out and that helped us and we didn’t have to take a deposition of him in 2009.​..
 Trump "once barred child molester Jeffrey Epstein from his famed Mar-a-lago club after the presidential candidate caught him hitting on a young girl."

​ ​I was cautiously optimistic that Trump would turn the corner on his presidency now that Mueller, impeachment and the rest of it would lift from his shoulders.  His foreign policy maneuvers didn’t fill me with much, if any, confirmation of this hope.
​ ​But domestically signs were there that he had stabilized the battlefield.
 ​Epstein’s arrest tells me he’s now out for blood.
​ Because this goes directly to the heart of the matter.  Trump left the Clintons’ social circle in disgust and I’m convinced he ran to stop her corrupt sell out of the U.S.
​ ​Never forget that, while corruption is rampant in D.C., it is not all-pervasive.  It’s not a black and white thing...
​...​This is more than just Hillary and Bill.
​ ​This is likely far deeper a rabbit hole than anyone in D.C. wants to admit.   Don’t think for a second that Epstein hasn’t been blackmailing very prominent people for years.
​ ​Because he has. And they are all now scared to death.
​ ​And Robert Mueller is up to his neck in this.  Because it was Mueller who helped Epstein mostly get off the hook the last time and had the court documents sealed.​..
​ When Nancy Pelosi’s daughter is out there signaling for her mother on this immediately, you know this is bad.
​ ​Pelosi doesn’t roll over
 for nothing folks. Think what you want about her but she’s a pitbull. And she rolled over on border wall funding last week.

​ ​Donald Trump has compared upstart Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to former Argentine first lady Eva Perón, the Guardian reported citing a review of the upcoming book... by Politico writer Tim Alberta.
​ ​In the forthcoming book, the author claims that Trump first saw the New York congresswoman "ranting and raving like a lunatic on a street corner" and while saying that "she knows nothing", she has "a certain talent."
​ ​Alberta then says the Trump “became enamored” and “starstruck” by Ocasio-Cortez.
"I called her Eva Perón. I said, ‘That’s Eva Perón. That’s Evita," Trump said.
​ ​At the time Ocasio-Cortez was pursuing a long-shot primary bid to unseat Representative Joe Crowley, a top member of House Democratic leadership. Since toppling Crowley, Ocasio-Cortez, 29, has become the most visible of the freshman Democrats trying to pull the party to the extreme left.

​​A high-ranking Russian military official says that 14 sailors who died in a recent fire aboard a nuclear submarine averted a "planetary catastrophe" before they perished.
​ ​While speaking at a funeral for the fallen servicemen, the official did not elaborate on what they did to avert said catastrophe, as the entire incident remains shrouded in mystery, according to Russian news outlet Open Media.
