Jeffrey Epstein May Have Feared His Former Jail Cellmate — and Other Updates

LifeZette - Mon, 08/12/2019 - 16:59

An ex-police officer who is facing the death penalty on federal murder and drug charges was reportedly a cellmate of Jeffrey Epstein’s at the Manhattan Metropolitan Correction Center before he died, as Fox News reported on Monday morning.

But the former cop — who is from Westchester County, New York — was reportedly moved out of Epstein’s cell shortly before the 66-year-old convicted pedophile was found deceased early on Saturday morning.

Epstein died of an apparent suicide, but there’s not yet been definitive word on that.

An autopsy was performed on Epstein’s body on Sunday by the medical examiner’s office; results have not yet been released.

Roughly two weeks ago, Epstein was placed on suicide watch after he was found in his cell with neck bruises.

He was semi-conscious when he was found.

But after a week of evaluations, Epstein was reportedly taken off that suicide watch status at the end of July.

It is still not clear exactly how he died. Reports suggest there was no video camera trained on his cell.

Attorney General Bill Barr has vowed to get to the bottom of what happened.

“There is not one chance in hell that this was a suicide,” a reader speculated bluntly in an online post about Epstein’s passing.

“I knew from the very beginning that those rich men in power who committed these atrocities would ‘never’ see justice,” the same reader said. “If he had testified, half of D.C. and half of Hollywood would have self-imploded. I guess the rich and powerful ‘can’ get away with anything.”

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” on Monday morning to discuss the case, former LAPD detective Mark Fuhrman urged people to slow down with any conspiracy theories about Epstein’s passing until more information is released and more facts are uncovered.

“I think everyone should pause until we know the cause and manner of death, [and] the toxicology, the autopsy is complete,” Fuhrman advised.

“Everyone should pause until we know the cause and manner of death,” said former detective Mark Fuhrman.

“Many [people] have been quick to blame the correctional facility that housed Epstein at the time of his death for allowing 30 minutes to pass without checking on the financier — though Fuhrman believes the ‘understaffed and overworked’ officers ‘followed exactly the protocols that they were supposed to,'” as Fox News reported on Monday morning about Fuhrman’s remarks.

Meanwhile, some salacious stories connected to this case are also circulating.

An alleged “sex slave” of Epstein accused several people of misconduct in a deposition that was recently unsealed — “including a powerful Democratic lawmaker who turned down an appointment to the Supreme Court,” the Daily Caller News Foundation is reporting on Monday morning.

“Virginia Giuffre said Epstein directed her to perform erotic massages and [have] sexual intercourse with former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell of Maine, an elder statesmen in the Democratic Party whom former President Bill Clinton asked to succeed Justice Harry Blackmun in 1994,” the outlet also reported — adding that “Mitchell denied any wrongdoing.”

See a few tweets below on the case — and share your thoughts in the comments section.

The conspiracy theories concerning the Epstein death are multiplying. The facts seem unbelievable. But it is best to wait for some key facts like the findings of the autopsy. Withholding judgement is the wisest course to follow. DOJ is very motivated to get to the bottom of it.

US Attorney General Bill Barr addressed the ongoing investigation into pedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein’s death at a press conference on Monday morning.

“We are now learning of serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning and demand a thorough investigation,” Barr said.

“There will be accountability,” Barr asserted.

Epstein reportedly hanged himself early Saturday morning shortly after being taken off of suicide watch.

There is no surveillance video of Epstein’s apparent suicide according to many sources familiar with the prison setup.

Jeffrey Epstein was the most high profile prisoner in the US system with connections to the world’s elite, yet there were no cameras pointing directly into his prison cell.

Epstein was taken off of suicide watch just weeks after he reportedly tried to kill himself and the prison guards, who were working overtime, broke protocol when they failed to check on him every 30 minutes.

Epstein was found dead just one day after records were unsealed implicating top Democrats and world elites including Prince Andrew.

It was reported Monday morning that Epstein’s cellmate was removed just one day before his death.

Many close to Epstein fear he was murdered and one former MCC inmate even said there is “no way” Epstein killed himself.

Navy Veteran Passed Away Alone, Yet One New York Community Gave Him a Proper Send-Off

LifeZette - Mon, 08/12/2019 - 15:45

Bradley Parker, a 66-year-old veteran of the United States Navy, passed away earlier this month with no known family or friends beside him.

St. Joseph’s Church in Troy, New York, was concerned that Parker would be buried with nobody around — so the group sent out a call for help from the community.

“Thursday afternoon I received an email from our pastor telling me that a gentleman was going to be buried here through the Leahy funeral home and that he had no relatives, no friends, nobody to be there,” Rev. Paul Coffey told WRGB.

Coffey explained he sent the word out to “a handful of people.”

Over 100people showed up at the cemetery to pay their respects to Parker, who received full military honors.

Some brought flowers, others brought prayers. The scene was peppered with individuals in military or first responder uniforms.

All brought respect and admiration for a man who served his country.

“There was a color guard, 21-gun salute, flag folding — and they played Taps,” according to the report.

Even the news station’s Facebook post reveals the residents’ sense of warmth toward each other as a result of the outpouring for Parker.

“Bradley Parker, 66, a Navy veteran recently passed away. We are told he has no family or friends to attend his services. A letter posted to Facebook asked for those to come and pay respects,” they wrote.

“Today we are his family and friends. Thank you for your service.”

Something even more incredible came out of the response from the people of Troy.

A distant relative had heard about Parker, and through the power of social media word eventually got back to the veteran’s sister, Sharron Nirsberger.

Sharron explained that her brother typically kept to himself and she may never have heard about his services if not for this touching community effort.

The Apple family heard about @USNavy veteran Brad Parker, 66, who was believed to have no family to bury him. Today #TroyNY turns out to honor him at St. Joseph Cemetery. His sister is here too. She found out of his passing last night at 6pm. @WNYT pic.twitter.com/L7ottoE5va

— John Craig (@JohnCraigWNYT) August 2, 2019

“It’s just beautiful. I thank all the veterans and everyone, the fire department, I just can’t even name them all,” Nirsberger said, according to the local news station. “This is overwhelming, it’s overwhelming for me, and I thank you all, I really do, from the bottom of my heart. He was a good guy, my brother.”

The scene was reminiscent of another instance two years ago, when Glenn Shelton, a 68-year-old Marine and Vietnam veteran and Purple Heart recipient, passed away under similar circumstances in Indiana.

“I thank you all, I really do, from the bottom of my heart. He was a good guy, my brother.”

Hundreds attended his funeral.

Coffey summed it up best: “They took some time out of their lives to serve us. We can take an hour to honor them.” Amen.

WAYNE ALLYN ROOT: This is How We Stop Gun Violence, Mr. President

GatewayPundit - Mon, 08/12/2019 - 15:35

By Wayne Allyn Root

Do you know the old joke about lawyers? “What’s the greatest talent of lawyers? They can quote their fees without smiling!”

That’s how I feel about Democrats and anti-gun crusaders this week. How do they say what they say without smiling? How dumb do they think Americans really are?

How do Democrats keep from smiling, when they blame violence on conservatives or Trump, while it’s almost exclusively the liberal world that openly and publicly promotes violence?

Did you know Democrat Congressman Joaquin Castro (brother of presidential candidate Julian Castro) tweeted out the names and addresses of Trump donors in his San Antonio district? This could easily lead to one madman, one mentally-ill teen, or hundreds of Antifa anarchists showing up at GOP donors’ homes or offices and murdering innocent people. People’s homes could be firebombed. Someone’s child could be kidnapped or killed.

This is a Democrat Congressman trying to get Republicans killed. So, tell me again, who is the political party encouraging violence?

Did you know days ago an NBC News National Security expert claimed in a TV interview that Trump’s order to put flags at half-mast was a “tribute to Hitler?” This expert clearly wears a tin foil hat. His comments are bizarre and dangerous. Of course, if “Trump is Hitler,” then it’s easy to rationalize killing Trump or his supporters. Is that the liberal game plan?

Who is encouraging violence now? NBC.

Did you know a new Hollywood blockbuster is coming out next month called “The Hunt.” It’s about elites kidnapping Trump supporters from red states, bringing them to a remote island, where they hunt and murder them. Now that won’t inspire violence against Trump supporters, will it?

Who is promoting violence now? Universal Pictures.

The point I’m making is the threats and violence are almost completely from the left. The people who have to worry are Trump supporters. We are the ones who have every reason to fear violence and mass shootings.

But the answer isn’t gun control or Red Flag laws. Everywhere in America where there is strict gun control, there is sky high murder rates. It does not stop criminals or crazy people. They don’t care. It just disarms good guys- the very ones you should want to be armed.

See the story last week about a mass shooter stopped at a Missouri WalMart by an armed retired firefighter.

This is Exhibit A for how we stop criminals and mass shooters.

We need good guys armed and licensed with a CCW to confront and stop bad guys. Cops can’t be everywhere. Cops are actually “second responders.” While cops are on route, we need true “first responders”- good guys (and gals), armed, with professional training, to step up and prevent a tragedy.

So, Mr. President, I understand the reality of politics. You need to win the votes of suburban moms. You need to compromise, to reach out to independents. I understand that. My advice is simple…

Whatever deal you cut, make sure its narrow in scope and respects the civil liberties of the armed good guys of America- the very people you need to stop mass shootings. Like that retired fireman in Missouri.

And then be sure to negotiate something in the bargain. In return for a narrow reasonable gun law that doesn’t harm my civil rights, we need national gun reciprocity.

The responsible, armed, trained, good guys of America, who have CCW permits, must be able to carry our guns in all 50 states- just like retired law enforcement can right now. That’s how you stop bad guys.

Gun control isn’t the answer. Putting an army of good guys, with training and licenses to concealed carry, on the streets is the only way to “Make America Safe Again.”

Oh, and also tell the Democrats to stop inciting violence and murder.

Epstein’s Cellmate Was Removed One Day Before the Pedophile’s Death

GatewayPundit - Mon, 08/12/2019 - 15:19

The cellmate of pedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein was transferred out of their shared cell on the eve of the high profile prisoner’s death.

Epstein, 66, was being held in the special housing unit of the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City and was supposed to be being checked on every 30 minutes per the jail’s procedure — but he wasn’t. He was also supposed to have a cellmate.

“But a person who had been assigned to share a cell with Epstein was transferred on Friday, and — for reasons that investigators are still exploring — he did not receive a new cellmate, the person familiar with the matter said Sunday night. That left Epstein, who had previously been placed on suicide watch, alone and unmonitored — at least in the hours before his death — by even those officers assigned to guard him,” the Washington Post reports.

Epstein’s cellmate prior to his most recent one was a hulking ex-cop, Nicholas Tartaglione, who has been charged with murdering four men in a cocaine conspiracy. Epstein is said to have feared him and the former Briarcliffe Manor cop was questioned following the pedophiles previous suicide attempt in July — which the financier said was actually an attack on his life.

“Remember previous incident July 23: it was never cleared up whether Epstein had been attacked, as he said, or if he was covering up his own suicide attempt,” Washington Post reporter Carol Leonning noted.

— Carol Leonnig (@CarolLeonnig) August 10, 2019

According to a report from the Associated Press, along with Epstein not being checked on, his being removed from suicide watch and his cellmate being moved, the guards who were assigned to watch him were also spread thin — with one of them being on his fifth straight day of overtime.

The NYC Medical Examiner has performed an autopsy on Epstein, but has said that they need more information before a cause of death can be determined, though immediate reports said that he had committed suicide by hanging himself in his cell.

“Today, a medical examiner performed the autopsy of Jeffrey Epstein. The ME’s determination is pending further information at this time. At the request of those representing the decedent, and with the awareness of the federal prosecutor, I allowed a private pathologist (Dr. Michael Baden) to observe the autopsy examination. This is routine practice,” Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Barbara Sampson said in a statement provided to the Gateway Pundit on Sunday. “My office defers to the involved law enforcement agencies regarding other investigations around this death. Inquiries regarding the determination of the Chief Medical Examiner should be directed towards my office.”

Epstein’s case was putting many rich and powerful people in the spotlight over their connections to the pedophile. He had been denied bail and was facing 45 years in prison on federal sex trafficking and conspiracy charges.

It may never be known how many dark secrets about some of the world’s most elite members of society died with Epstein over the weekend.

WOW! Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne Fires Off Warning Shot to Deep State — BILL BARR is About to Break Biggest Scandal in American History (VIDEO)

GatewayPundit - Mon, 08/12/2019 - 15:10

Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne joined David Asman on FOX Business Network on Monday to discuss the launch of his new cryptocurrency.

But first Byrne was asked about his involvement in the Russia Trump collusion witch hunt.
Byrne was interviewed by the FBI for his involvement with Russian Maria Butina.

Byrne fired off a warning shot to the deep state.

Patrick Byrne: I ended up in the center of the Russian and the Clinton investigations. I have all the answers. I have been sitting on them waiting for America to get there. Last summer I figured out… what they all are is all about political espionage. It had nothing to do with law enforcement, it was all political espionage. Here’s the bottom line. There is a deep state like a submarine working just beneath the waves of the periscope depth watching our shipping lane. And a nuclear ice breaker called the USS Bill Barr has snuck up on them and is about to ram midship.

That’s about to happen and I think we’re about to see the biggest scandal in American history as a result. But it was all political. Everything you think you know about Russia and Clinton investigations is a lie. It’s all a cover-up. It was all political espionage.

David Asman: You think Bill Barr is going to get to the bottom of it.

Patrick Byrne: I think he has gotten to the bottom of it.

Scaramucci Suggests the GOP Might Need to Replace Donald Trump on the 2020 Ticket

LifeZette - Mon, 08/12/2019 - 14:40

President Donald Trump has already been busy campaigning for the 2020 presidential race and is expected to run for re-election.

However, prominent Republican donor Anthony Scaramucci believes that the Republican Party may need to replace Trump with another candidate if the GOP wants to win the race.

Related: Trump Charges That Joe Biden Is Not ‘Playing with a Full Deck’

Scaramucci told Axios, “We are now in the early episodes of ‘Chernobyl’ on HBO, where the reactor is melting down and the apparatchiks are trying to figure out whether to cover it up or start the clean-up process.”

Scaramucci further stated, “A couple more weeks like this and ‘country over party’ is going to require the Republicans to replace the top of the ticket in 2020.”

In case you don’t recall, Scaramucci served in Trump’s administration but lasted just 11 days before he was ousted.

Now, he believes that Trump needs to reform his behavior or he could face a Republican revolt.

He admits that for now, replacement is “unspeakable” but may soon become a serious option.

Scaramucci also said that President Trump’s visit to El Paso, Texas, which was the site of a recent tragedy that targeted Latinos, was a “catastrophe.”

President Donald Trump was quick to respond on Twitter:

…..other than the fact that this Administration has probably done more than any other Administration in its first 2 1/2 years of existence. Anthony, who would do anything to come back in, should remember the only reason he is on TV, and it’s not for being the Mooch!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 11, 2019

Will President Trump be replaced?

It seems unfathomable — but recent polls suggest that both former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) would handily beat Trump in a head-to-head matchup.

Some Republicans might prefer to back a candidate who is performing better in polls.

EXCLUSIVE: Latest AI and Intelligence Algorithms Using Body Kinetics and Facial Characteristics Show Mueller Was Not Honest in House Hearing!

GatewayPundit - Mon, 08/12/2019 - 14:25

We reported in late July that the body language expert reviewed Robert Mueller’s responses and actions during his recent hearing before Congress. Based on this review, Mueller was deceptive and very defiant.

Now we have additional information on Mueller’s actions from an in depth analysis using the latest in advanced technology!

The body language ghost on YouTube released a number of videos where she reviews the actions and responses on Robert Mueller in front of Congress attempting to defend his corrupt and criminal Russia Collusion coup. The results are as expected.

In her review of Mueller in response to the grilling from Republican Jim Jordan, Mueller comes off defiant and misleading –

In a second video, where Mueller is grilled by Representatives Gaetz, Gohmert and McClintock, Mueller is just plain old deceptive. The former FBI Director lied numerous times in front of Congress –

Now we have a thorough review of Mueller’s actions and mannerisms during his hearing in front of Congress using the latest in AI and intelligence algorithms.

Yaacov Apelbaum was able to capture Mueller’s conversational patterns, body kinetics, facial characteristics, and behavioral fingerprint when under duress while in a single continual homogeneous session–and all of this in a well lit environment in front of front facing high resolution cameras.

Mueller had a number of types of words and phrases that he used to avoid answering the questions. The operative sentence that proceeded most of these words was ”I’m not going to…

In addition, Mueller did a great job obfuscating the report details but the large volume of video and audio in his testimony and the high quality imagery obtained made it possible to analyze the session and find anomalies and various patterns that could provide insight into his mindset.

Apelbaun states –

In this project just as in several of my previous posts (1, 2, 3), I used AI based video analytics, text, and speech analysis platforms. These included:

•XRVision Sentinel AI
•IBM Watson
•LIWC2015 Text analysis

For the text/speech analysis, I used a hybrid approach to word and phrase speech pattern analysis. The textual analysis evaluated these types of speech categories:

•I-words (I, Me, My, I’m)
•Social words
•Positive emotions
•Negative emotions
•Cognitive processes
•Analytic reasoning
•Clout
•Authenticity
•Emotional tone

For the video analytics, I established Mueller’s facial and other video objects baseline using several on-line sources and the main testimony video. The baseline cataloging included his unique facial expressions such as Microexpressions and other visually detectable actions like use of hand gesture, hand related activities, head motion, mouth movement, gaze, etc.

 

Apelbaum provides a sampling of Mueller’s Microexpressions such as (L-R): loathing/anger, surprise, fear, happiness:

And below are a sample of Mueller’s’ body dynamics as related to left hand usage:

Apelbaum also provides among many images and video clips, a picture of the Mueller gang, including Aaron Zebly, who sat by Mueller during the hearing:

Apelbaum states:

Even though Mueller attempted to obfuscate the report’s composition methods and authors, the writing style, document layout, context, and several other administrative clues strongly suggest that Andrew Weismann was the architect and Aaron Zebley was chief editor of the document. This is also likely the reason why Mueller insisted that Zebley be present by his side and be sworn in.

The evidence from the video analytics, speech dynamics, and the decision tree Mueller used to answer the questions (i.e. question objective vs. answer strategy) shows a decent mental agility and the ability to alternate between complete ‘radio silence’ and ‘singing like a canary’ on demand.

To those who still believe that Mueller was just a senile old man with little familiarity with the content of the report, consider the fact that his verbose answers show that he had a pretty good grasp of the document content. He also artfully navigated the many minefields in the report without blowing up a leg in the process. Some experts in the MSM have been suggesting that Mueller’s poor verbal performance and optics can be attributed to some form of cognitive impairment but this argument is inconsistent with his ability to effectively deliver the following:

1.Selectively discuss specific topics, most of which were prejudicial to Trump
2.Answer questions that almost exclusively supported the impeachment narrative with certainty and conviction
3.Justify and emphasize specific areas in the report that exonerated his team from claims of bias and hostility to Trump in instances of hostile conduct by FBI senior management and its agents (i.e. Comey, Strzok, Page, agent 2, and others)
4.Utilize the “I’m not going to…” strategy to answer any questions prejudicial to the “insurance policy”
5.Refuse to address the media leaks that either came from him personally, his direct reports, or his team
6.Exhibited good mental agility and dexterity during the May 29th, 2019 Mueller Report news conference
7.Come up with over 180 different ways of not answering a direct question

The patterns identified by the analytics strongly suggest that all of Mueller’s behavioral stress patterns matched the typical anxiety profiles and signs of internal struggle that are exhibited by a guilty suspect during an integration. For the first time in his long bureaucratic career, he found himself at the wrong side of the table with the bright lights in his face and a real possibility of being charged with perjury. For several hours, the fearless hunter became the pray and he clearly didn’t like the experience.

Contextually, the majority of his testimony turned out to be an underhanded attempt to use the Q&A session to justify, promote, and surreptitiously inject political narrative into the public hearing. None of this should come as a surprise as it is the same circular “impeach Trump” agenda that launched this investigation in the first place. At the end of the day, despite Mueller’s big title and god-like pedigree, he turned out to be just another DC power broker who apparently placed his bets on the wrong presidential candidate.

It is absolutely frightening knowing that Robert Mueller was a member of the DOJ and FBI for decades. It’s worse knowing that he was FBI Director and the Head of Special Counsel set up in a coup to remove President Trump from office. This is just more evidence to support the assertion that Mueller is a crook!

Who’s the Conspiracist? — Marco Rubio Blames ‘Russian Bots’ for Spreading Epstein ‘Conspiracies’

GatewayPundit - Mon, 08/12/2019 - 13:55

Marco Rubio outdoes himself.

The Florida Republican blamed Russian trolls for spreading “conspiracies” about Jeffrey Epstein’s death.

Epstein was the highest profile prisoner in the US prison system.

** Epstein said he was considering cooperating in “naming names” in his international sex ring
** He was found unconscious in his prison cell just three weeks earlier
** On Thursday documents released for the first time implicated several top Democrats in his pedo sex ring
** He was taken off suicide watch
** He was in isolation
** The cameras malfunctioned
** The prison guards had worked several extra shifts last week
** The prison guards “forgot” to check on Epstein
** Epstein said he was the victim of attempted murder three weeks ago
** Epstein has dirt on numerous globalist elites
** Epstein was left with the tools to hang himself after previous episode just days earlier
** Epstein was not suicidal according to medical professionals

But Marco blames THE RUSSIANS — without ANY PROOF!
That’s quite a conspiracy!

#Putin bots & trolls are aggressively pushing hashtags on social media promoting Trump & Clinton conspiracies about #Epstein death.

It’s sad (and frightening) to see so many Americans on both sides of partisan unwittingly helping them.

Putin has weaponized our polarization.

Far Left Athlete-Protesters May Face Sanctions After Disrespecting Flag, Anthem and Country at Pan Am Games

GatewayPundit - Mon, 08/12/2019 - 13:31

American fencer Race Imboden won a gold medal in the Pan American games in Peru.
Then he knelt during the national anthem at the medals ceremony.

Race Imboden told CNN it was a protest against “racism, gun control, mistreatment of immigrants and President Donald Trump.”

What a dope.

What a dummy.

And women’s hammer thrower Gwen Berry raised a fist during her medal’s ceremony.
She was protesting extreme justice.

Now these America-hating athlete-protesters may face sanctions for their disgusting displays on the international stage.

According to Yahoo:

Mark Jones, vice president of communications for the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC), told ESPN that the governing body was considering what sanctions it might impose.

“Every athlete competing at the 2019 Pan American Games commits to terms of eligibility, including to refrain from demonstrations that are political in nature,” Jones said in a statement to the US sports network.

“In these cases, the athletes didn’t adhere to the commitment they made to the organizing committee and the USOPC.

“We respect their rights to express their viewpoints, but we are disappointed that they chose not to honor their commitment. Our leadership are reviewing what consequences may result.”

Integrity means nothing to these people.
In any other country this would be the last time they embarrassed their nation on an international stage.

The right to a secure retirement.

Excellent question. We really should push for a new Constitutional Amendment for this …

Are they entitled to the right to own 3 homes?

Bernie Sanders:

Has never held a job that created value or paid a "living wage;
Has never provided any kind of healthcare to anyone;
Is not qualified to teach anything;
Owns three homes, none "affordable" to normal Americans;
Is a polluter;
Has a secure retirement you can't get.

EXCLUSIVE: Former Clinton and Obama Economist and Harvard President, Larry Summers, Took Flight to Epstein’s ‘Orgy Island’ on His Honeymoon

GatewayPundit - Mon, 08/12/2019 - 12:46

Clinton and Obama economist and the former President of Harvard, took numerous flights on Jeffrey Epstein’s jet.  He even flew on Epstein’s jet to Epstein’s infamous ‘Orgy Island’ ten days after his marriage in 2005.  Another elite creep.

Today it was reported that Larry Summers, the former President of Harvard, and the former economist for both Presidents Clinton and Obama, reportedly believes that the economy is at its worst position in a decade.  Bloomberg reported

The U.S. and world economies are at their riskiest moment since the global financial crisis a decade ago as trade tensions continue to grow, former Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers said on Sunday.

Summers spoke on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” about what he called a “sadomasochistic and foolish trade conflict” the U.S. has engaged with China under President Donald Trump.

According to this imbecile who let China run away with US jobs, the US should not be attempting a trade deal with China.  Summers also believes that the current economy, with unemployment at 50 year lows, a GDP twice that of Obama’s, stock markets at all time highs and more people working than every before in history, is somehow worse than Obama’s economy in 2009 with 10% unemployment, a declining GDP, stock market decade lows and food stamps at all time highs.

Mr. Summers cannot be trusted with the economy and certainly not your children.

We’ve uncovered that this creepy former President of Harvard, flew numerous times on Jeffrey Epstein’s jet and even flew to Epstein’s so called ‘Orgy Island’. 

Flight logs from the previous Epstein trial show that Larry Summers flew a couple times on the ‘Epstein Express’ to Epstein’s now infamous ‘Orgy Island’!  According to flight records released from the Epstein case, Summers took four trips on Epstein’s Jet.  On one trip he took his newlywed second wife, Elisa New, to Epstein’s Island for their Honeymoon in 2005.

(Note that Summers was Senior U.S. Treasury Department official throughout President Clinton’s administration (ultimately Treasury Secretary, 1999–2001) and former Director of the National Economic Council for President Obama (2009–2010). He is a former President of Harvard University (2001–2006), where he is currently (as of March, 2017) a Professor and Director of the Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business and Government at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.)

By looking at flight logs and then the airport names in the logs, we can also determine where Summers departed from and where he went to. (Search for Airports, by Name ICAO, IATA or FAA Code: https://www.flyhoward.com/AptSearch.aspx?)

First on September 19, 1998, which would have been when Summers worked for President Clinton, Summers flew from  ASE (Aspen Pitkin Co Sardy Fld – Aspen, CO) to IAD (Washington Dulles Intl).

On a second trip on April 15th, 2004, Summers flew from New York’s JFK (John F Kennedy NY) to BED (Laurence G Hanscom Fld – Bedford, MA).  Note that this is an airport very close to Harvard University where Summers served as President.

On a third trip, Summers flew on September 14, 2005, from BED (Laurence G Hanscom Fld – Bedford, MA) to HPN (Westchester County, White Plains, NY).  Note again that the BED airport is close to Harvard.

On the fourth recorded trip that we were able to locate, we determined something unusual.  According to Summers’ Wikipedia Page, he was married in 2005.  However, if you hover your Mouse over his personal details – his spouse is Elisa New and they were married in 2005 and Wikipedia provides the Date of their Marriage as “December 11, 2005”.

Ten days after Larry and Elisa Summers were Married, on December 21, 2005, Larry and Lisa Summers flew from Bedford, MA to Epstein’s Island.  They were accompanied on this flight by ‘GM’ – Epstein’s close confidant Ghislaine Maxwell.

The flight logs show from BED (Laurence G Hanscom Fld – Bedford, MA) to TIST (Cyril E King Airport, St Thomas, US Virgin Islands).

According to Wikipedia, Lawrence Henry Summers was President of Harvard University from 2001 – 2006.  Therefore Mr. Summers was President of Harvard University on December 21, 2005, when this flight was made.  Harvard University is located in Cambridge, MA.  The Laurence G Hanscom Field is 12.8 miles (or a 21 minute drive) from Cambridge via MA-2 East, according to Google.

What a bizarre honeymoon location for anyone – Epstein’s ‘Orgy Island’?

Kamala Harris Claims Kids Are Afraid Their Undocumented Parents ‘Won’t Come Home’ from Work

LifeZette - Mon, 08/12/2019 - 11:42

Once again, a 2020 candidate for the Democratic nomination — Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) — looks beyond the enforcing of American law and tries to pull on the heartstrings of others by calling this past week’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids in Mississippi a “campaign of terror.”

Related: Shep Smith Is So Upset That Hundreds of Undocumented Workers Were Arrested

The California candidate for the White House said the raids were meant to scare immigrants and their families.

That is hilarious to this opinion writer because, once again, she didn’t add the word “illegal” or “unlawful” to that sentence.

On Sunday, Harris appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” with Chuck Todd.

That’s right after she was dealt a huge blow in the national polls this past week.

Her campaign appears to be losing ground after the second round of primary debates.

Here’s how the interview unfolded.

Todd said to her, “Believe it or not, law enforcement told us that they had to be intentionally vague about the companies that were, quote, raided. Explain to me — you were a prosecutor. Why were the workers targeted and not the companies?”

Harris replied that “the employers have to be responsible. They have to do whatever is required by law.”

Related: Tulsi Gabbard on Kamala Harris: ‘I Pointed Out Some Huge Problems’ with Her Leadership in California

“But there’s another point here, Chuck, which is that this administration has directed DHS [the Department of Homeland Security] to conduct these raids as part of what I believe is this administration’s campaign of terror,” Harris added. “Which is to make whole populations of people afraid to go to work.”

“Children are afraid to go to school for fear that when they come home, their parents won’t be there,” she also said.

Harris admitted that “employers have to be responsible. They have to do whatever is required by law.”

Todd asked her, “Can he [President Trump] say anything at this point to reassure Hispanic Americans?”

Harris responded, “I don’t think it would be authentic if he did. I think people are smart enough to know that.”

She added, “There’s an old saying: ‘Judge me by my actions, not my words.’ His actions have been to divide, to vilify, to do what is contrary to who we are as Americans.”

Al Sharpton Heckled In Baltimore: “You’re A Phony . . . You’re A Hustler!” (VIDEO)

GatewayPundit - Mon, 08/12/2019 - 05:58

Al Sharpton has been in Baltimore defending the record of Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings, but not all of the local residents are happy about it.

In fact, Sharpton was heckled by some angry locals this week.

The We Love Trump blog reports:

MUST WATCH: Al Sharpton Confronted & Heckled By Baltimore Residents

A must-watch video of Baltimore residents speaking out about their living conditions and how unsafe the city they’re living in is was posted onto Youtube a few days ago.

It showed several citizens of Baltimore, Rep. Elijah Cummings’ district, talking about how scary it is to live in the city, then showed Democrat anti-Trump Rev. Al Sharpton making an appearance condemning Trump’s criticism of Cummings and the city.

Several Baltimore residents were outraged over Sharpton’s audacity and forced him to face the facts by boldly shouting out to him statements like, “You go back to New York! You bring that s*** to New York! You ain’t do nothing for Baltimore! You a phony!” and “Our schools are failing us! Where are you when our schools are failing us? You’re just a hustler.”

Ouch!

Larry C Johnson: Bruce Ohr 302s

GatewayPundit - Mon, 08/12/2019 - 04:30

Guest post by Larry C. Johnson

If you have not had time to peruse the redacted Bruce Ohr 302s (a FD-302 is the report an FBI agent enters into the FBI records system after interviewing a source) here you go. Your own reader’s digest version. These are presented chronologically. Note, there are two or three dates associated with each report. The first is the date that the interview took place. The other two is either the date the report was drafter and/or entered into the FBI computer system).

In reviewing these 302s there are some salient points I want to bring to your attention.

First, Christopher Steele was terminated as an FBI Confidential Human Source at the end of September 2016 for leaking to the press. That should have put an end to the relationship. Instead, the FBI starts using Bruce Ohr, the number four guy at the Department of Justice, as a cutout. Absolutely  no justification for this kind of behavior by the FBI. It is, at a minimum, unethical and creates a real problem if any of the info collected from Ohr was to be used in a court proceeding. Something known as the “fruit of the poisonous tree” would kick in and the so-called evidence proffered by Ohr would be inadmissible or unusable because of Steele’s previous lies to the FBI.

Second, Glenn Simpson played a huge role in helping spread anti-Trump propaganda generated by Steele. In fact, it was Simpson’s insistence on Steele speaking with the press that got Steele terminated as an FBI source.

Third, the FBI knew by mid-December 2016 that Bruce Ohr’s wife, Nellie, was working with Simpson and Steele. This too should have set off alarm bells about the potential conflicts of interest and unethical conduct.

Fourth, evidence used ultimately against Paul Manafort came from Nellie Ohr. If this was not disclosed to Manafort’s attorney’s there is a likely Brady violation, which bolster’s Manafort’s prospects for an appeal.

Fifth, Steele and Simpson made several claims of fact about Russia ties to the Trump campaign that were later proven to be false. For example, stating that Michael Cohen was in Prague meeting the Russians. Important to note that Christopher Steele produced the final report of the so-called dossier bearing his name on 13 December 2016 yet this information was “passed” to Ohr one day prior to the date on the report.

Sixth, the “debriefing” of Ohr on 12 December 2016 also provided the foundation for going after Marina Butina. (See Sara Carter’s excellent update on this case here). The false information from Steele/Simpson via Bruce Ohr became the pretext for launching an investigation of Butina, who was working for a wealthy Russian banker, Alexander Torshin. This too turns out to have been a fabrication. I believe this provides Butina’s attorneys more ammunition for arguing prosecutorial misconduct and failure to provide critical Brady material.

And finally, Fusion GPS, which was hired on behalf of the Clinton Campaign, was regularly communicating and coordinating with Obama’s Department of Justice and Department of State. This was a complete abuse of power.

Now, here is the summary of the 302s:

11/22/2016 (entered on 12/19/2006)

Ohr met with Steele in 2007 (not sure of date) at a conference.

July 30, 2016 Steele met Ohr for breakfast. Steele claimed Carter Page had met with Russian Sechin at a conference.

States that Glenn Simpson hired Steele and Ohr’s wife to dig up dirt on Trump’s connections to Russia.

Noted that reporting was going to the Clinton Campaign, Jonathan Winer and the FBI.

Ohr met with Steele in late September and was told about Alfa Bank ties to Trump and the Sergei Millian organization.

Noted that Steele was desperate to stop Trump and to thwart the Kremlin.

Ohr knew that Glenn Simpson and “others” were meeting with Victoria Nuland.

12/05/2016 (entered on 12/19/2016) (drafted on 12/12/2016)

Glenn Simpson directed Christopher Steele to speak to the press, including David Corn at Mother Jones.

Ohr provided FBI info on Manafort Chronology prepared by his wife.

12/12/2016 (entered on 12/19/2016) (Drafted on 12/14/2016)

Ohr states, per Simpson, that Cohen replaced Manafort and Page as the contact with the Russians.

Says that Cohen met with Russians in Prague.

Claims that Torshin is a Russian mobster and is trying to infiltrate the NRA and was pushing money to Trump.

Simpson opined that Sergei Millian was an SVR officer and a link to Trump.

12/20/2016 (entered on 12/27/2016)

Thumb drive with Nelly Ohr’s research passed to FBI.

1/23/2017 (entered on 1/31/2017) (drafted on 1/25/2017)

Simpson tells Ohr a source will be outed in the coming days.

Steele claims he met with a McCain staffer prior to October 2016

1/25/017 (entered on 1/27/2017)

Ohr spoke with Steele on 25 January 2017.

1/27/2017 (entered on 1/27/2017)

Steele told Ohr he wanted to keep lines of communication open.

02/06/2017 (entered on 02/08/2017)

Ohr contacted by Steele via What’sApp on 31 January 2017. Was reacting to firing of Sally Yates. Worried that if Ohr got fired he would have no one to talk to.

“Interviewing agents asked Ohr to ask Steele if he would be comfortable getting the name of an FBI agent.”

Ohr reminded agents that Steele had spoken several times prior to 2016 Presidential election with Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec. Ohr identified one of the sources for Steele’s report as a Ukranian.

02/14/2017 (entered on 02/15/2017)

Ohr tells FBI about Steele’s concerns about his business. Identifies other lawyer (name blacked out) he is working with. Steele is preparing a proposal to re-establish his business releationship with the FBI.

05/08/2017 (entered on 05/10/2017)

Steele tells Ohr that he is worried about Comey’s upcoming testimony. Ohr tells Steele what Comey will say and Steele is “happy.”

Ohr said that Glenn Simpson would be visiting Steele soon.

Jonathan Winer was bringing a letter to Steele.

Report: Jeffrey Epstein was “Considering Cooperating in Naming Names” to Reduce His Sentence — Then He Was Found Dead

GatewayPundit - Mon, 08/12/2019 - 02:08

66-year-old financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his prison cell on Saturday morning.
Epstein was the highest profile prisoner in the US prison system at the time of his death.

The multi-millionaire financier was hospitalized in July after he was found unresponsive in what appeared to be a possible suicide attempt.

According to reports Epstein told authorities someone tried to kill him in a previous incident weeks earlier.

People close to Epstein fear he was murdered…as Epstein told authorities someone tried to kill him in a previous incident weeks earlier. He was described as being in good spirits in recent days… https://t.co/J9QNSo1N2v

— Carol Leonnig (@CarolLeonnig) August 10, 2019

After the July incident he was reportedly put under suicide watch.

On Saturday he hanged himself.

Epstein was reportedly in good spirits.
There was no indication he would take his life.

And, according to reports, the prison guards did not make required checks on Epstein overnight.

Buried in the Reuters report was the admission that the guards skipped checks on Jeffrey Epstein last night — the most notorious prisoner in the US who was found unconscious less than 3 weeks ago!

Now this…
Both the prison warden and chief psychologist had to sign off to confirm Jeffrey Epstein was not suicidal.

According to a report on FOX News Jeffrey Epstein was “reportedly considering cooperating in naming names that’d reduce his sentence.”

Then he was found dead.

Via Robbie Starbuck:

Jeffrey Epstein was "reportedly considering cooperating in naming names that’d reduce his sentence."

Jeffrey Epstein’s Autopsy Conclusion Is ‘Pending Further Information’ as Theories Swirl

LifeZette - Mon, 08/12/2019 - 01:12

After disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein apparently passed away by his own hand early on Saturday morning, the New York City medical examiner’s office announced that an autopsy was done on Sunday, as New York’s Daily News and other outlets reported.

The office said, however, that a conclusion is “pending further information at this time.”

Related: Jeffrey Epstein News: 12 Outraged Americans React to His Passing

Meanwhile, many people are continuing to share theories as to what may have happened to Epstein — a convicted pedophile — in his Manhattan jail cell.

He had been on suicide watch earlier after reportedly trying to take his own life at the end of July; but apparently he was removed from that watch just prior to his passing.

And now, reports on Monday indicate that the two jail guards who allegedly failed to monitor Epstein before he perished had been working “extreme” overtime shifts, The New York Post noted.

Over the weekend, two 2020 Democratic presidential candidates attracted attention for complaining about a retweet that President Donald Trump sent out about the matter.

“What he’s doing is dangerous. He [Trump] is giving light to conspiracy theorists and whipping people up to anger against different people in this country,” declared Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) during an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” program on Sunday morning.

“He is using the same tactics as the Russians to attack our democracy,” he also insisted.

And former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) said in a different interview on the same Sunday morning show that the retweet is another “example of Trump using his position to attack political enemies with unfounded conspiracy theories.”

“Trump is changing the conversations so we can’t focus on the real problems that he is part of,” O’Rourke complained, as Fox News noted about both candidates.

NYC's chief medical examiner performed an autopsy Sunday on Epstein.

Epstein died in his cell of apparent suicide.

A statement came out saying the medical examiner's final determination is "pending further information at this time."https://t.co/rJTiekDyUM

— Washington Examiner (@dcexaminer) August 12, 2019

Ever since Epstein’s death was reported early on Saturday, however, many people have been speculating about the way in which Epstein might have passed.

Some suggest others were responsible — while more have speculated that “Epstein had information on [former President] Bill Clinton and now he’s dead,” as conservative commentator and comedian Terrence K. Williams suggested in part in a video tweet he sent out over the weekend.

It was that tweet that the president — as well as thousands of other people — retweeted.

Related: Epstein Is Found Deceased in His Jail Cell, New York Authorities Report

Both the FBI and the Inspector General “are investigating” the Epstein matter, NBC News reported. And Attorney General William Barr said that Epstein’s death “raises serious questions” — among them, why wasn’t Epstein being watched 24/7 after he’d previously been found injured in his cell in what was believed to have been a suicide attempt?

As one individual posted on social media, summing up what many others have shared, “I will practice the 48-hour rule and wait for more info. But that said, something definitely stinks with this whole thing.”

Epstein, 66, was facing up to 45 years in jail on federal sex trafficking and conspiracy charges.

He had pleaded not guilty; he was awaiting trial next year.
