“Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson” — Solar Tech Being Forced on CA Residents. Even Advocates Say It’s NOT Eco-Friendly Or Cost-Effective

By B.N. Frank

I know I’m not the only one who would like to see solar power work so well that we could forever eliminate our need for fossil fuels.  However, it peeves me to no end when technology is promoted as “clean”, “eco-friendly”, and “beneficial to customers” even though it clearly isn’t...

Billionaire Sex Offender's Phone Book Contained E-Mail Addresses, 21 Phone Numbers For Bill Clinton

During the early stages of that probe, cops surreptitiously collected the trash from in front of Epstein’s Palm Beach home. The refuse included documents with the names of some of his many underage masseuses, as well as an Amazon.com invoice for the purchase of sex slave books like “SlaveCraft: Roadmaps for Erotic Servitude--Principles, Skills and Tools,” “Training with Miss Abernathy: A Workbook for Erotic Slaves and Their Owners,” and “SM 101: A Realistic Introduction.”

As part of a civil suit filed against Epstein by several of his victims, lawyers for the women floated the possibility of subpoenaing Clinton since he “might well be a source of relevant information” about Epstein’s activities.

While Clinton was never deposed, lawyers obtained Epstein’s computerized phone directory, which included “e-mail addresses for Clinton along with 21 phone numbers for him, including those for his assistant (Doug Band),” according to a court filing.

In Major Blow to Mueller, Federal Judge Rebukes Mueller and DOJ For Falsely Claiming ‘Russian Bot Farm’ Linked to Russian Government

Dabney Friedrich, a Trump-appointed federal judge rebuked Robert Mueller and the DOJ for falsely suggesting the IRA (Internet Research Agency) and Concord Management and Company, the so-called Russian troll farms, were linked to the Russian government.

Mueller’s core claim that the Russian government interfered in the 2016 US presidential election in a “sweeping and systemic” fashion revolves around his bogus claims that a Russian bot farm was linked to the Kremlin — a core claim that has never even been proven.

Defense lawyers for Concord Management, the ‘Russian troll farm’ indicted by Mueller, filed a motion in April demanding the judge hold Robert Mueller and US Attorney General Bill Barr in criminal contempt for releasing the redacted special counsel report.

Concord’s lawyers argued that Mueller’s report contained allegations against Concord Management & Co. that were not in the indictment.

Investigative Reporter Says ‘Underage Girls’ Were on Epstein’s Plane The Same Time as Bill Clinton

Investigative journalist Conchita Sarnoff appeared on Fox News on Monday night to claim that “underage girls” were aboard accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s plane at the same time that Bill Clinton traveled on it.

According to Fox News, Sarnoff is the executive director of Alliance to Rescue Victims of Trafficking and also author of the book “TrafficKing: The Jeffrey Epstein Case.” She made these comments after Clinton released statement Monday claiming he was unaware of Epstein’s alleged crimes at the time:

Ann Coulter: Jeffrey Epstein Operation 'Obviously For Blackmailing Purposes,' May Have 'State Sponsor'

Ann Coulter broke down the Jeffrey Epstein case in an interview with 790 KABC on Monday and said she believes he was running a "blackmailing" operation and he may have a "state sponsor" behind him.

"Epstein according to both the girls accounts, he wanted them to have sex with powerful men, come back to him and report on it, describe what they wanted what their fetishes were and he had cameras throughout the house so this is obviously for blackmailing purposes," Coulter said.

"It just seems to me something much bigger is behind this -- perhaps a state sponsor -- powerful enough people ... it just seems to me there's something a very powerful force behind what's going on here and I am still nervous about this not coming to a conclusion, somehow this getting compromised," she said.

Coulter said prosecutors should investigate how he got his money and became a billionaire because his official story is not believable.

RECUSE YOURSELF: Epstein Judge, Who Locked Up Dinesh D’Souza, Was Appointed By Bill Clinton

The U.S. District Court Judge presiding over the Jeffrey Epstein child trafficking case was appointed to the federal bench by former president Bill Clinton, a frequent travel companion of Epstein. Epstein actually claimed to be a co-founder of the Clinton Global Initiative.

Richard Berman was appointed by Bill Clinton in 1998. He presided over Dinesh D’Souza’s case where D’Souza was convicted of re-imbursing friends to evade campaign contribution limits in a New York election.

Meanwhile, disgraced former FBI director James Comey’s daughter Maurene is one of the prosecutors in the case.

Jeffrey Epstein's Wikipedia Page Stealth-Edited To Remove Ties To Democrats

Bombshell: Alex Acosta Reportedly Claimed Jeffrey Epstein "Belonged To Intelligence"

I also noted that it appeared his real job was to run a blackmail operation to ensnare some of the most wealthy and powerful people on earth. I alluded to the possibility that he was collecting this priceless information on behalf of a third party, and then just today we learn the following via the Daily Beast:

“Is the Epstein case going to cause a problem [for confirmation hearings]?” Acosta had been asked. Acosta had explained, breezily, apparently, that back in the day he’d had just one meeting on the Epstein case. He’d cut the non-prosecution deal with one of Epstein’s attorneys because he had “been told” to back off, that Epstein was above his pay grade. “I was told Epstein ‘belonged to intelligence’ and to leave it alone,” he told his interviewers in the Trump transition, who evidently thought that was a sufficient answer and went ahead and hired Acosta. (The Labor Department had no comment when asked about this.)...

Ann Coulter Thinks Epstein Had a “State Sponsor” & Was Running a “Blackmailing” Operation

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter says that sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein had a “state sponsor” backing him and that his operation was a way to blackmail powerful men.

During an appearance on 790 KABC, Coulter suggested that Epstein is merely the front man for a far more powerful network.

“Epstein according to both the girls accounts, he wanted them to have sex with powerful men, come back to him and report on it, describe what they wanted what their fetishes were and he had cameras throughout the house so this is obviously for blackmailing purposes,” said Coulter.

“It just seems to me something much bigger is behind this — perhaps a state sponsor — powerful enough people … it just seems to me there’s something a very powerful force behind what’s going on here and I am still nervous about this not coming to a conclusion, somehow this getting compromised,” she added.

Alex Acosta reportedly claimed Jeffrey Epstein ‘belonged to intelligence’

If it turns out to be true that Jeffrey Epstein is an intelligence operative (part of the Central Intelligence Agency or some other group) then we may be looking at the largest political-elite honeypot operation ever ran in U.S. territory. If so, it means that the powers-that-be let it all happen in order to gather intel on various high profile individuals.

Major Red Flags Are Causing Many To Doubt Whether Justice Will Be Done In The Epstein Sex Scandal

It won’t just be Jeffrey Epstein that will be on trial in the months ahead. As this scandal unfolds, the entire U.S. legal system will be on trial, and if justice does not prevail many Americans will lose faith in the system for good.

And of course the rest of the world will be watching too, and so what are they supposed to think about us if we are not able to put Epstein and all of his dirty friends in prison? As I detailed in part three of this series, the evidence against Jeffrey Epstein and his partners in crime is mounting. If Jeffrey Epstein is put behind bars that will be a step in the right direction, but it will not nearly be enough.

NIMMO: NO WAY WILL EPSTEIN BE ALLOWED TO EXPOSE POLITICAL CLASS PEDOS

SOURCE: KURT NIMMO

I will be sincerely surprised if the latest effort to put away child sex ring leader Jeffrey Epstein results in outing members of the political class.

And even if names are revealed—and quite a few already have—there is simply no way a criminal like Bill Clinton will be charged with raping minors and thrown in prison.

Clinton, of course, is guilty of much more serious crimes, for instance, bombing the former Yugoslavia and killing hundreds of innocent people, including children, and burning men, women, and children alive at Waco. These crimes are now at best footnotes.

It has been known for a long time Bill Clinton is a sexual predator, and yet all the evidence of this, out there for the public to see, has yet to result in criminal charges against him. Both Bill and his wife are way above the law and more or less untouchable.

The "Big Test" will be at his next hearing, 15 July, and whether he is able to leave prison, on his own recognizance, until his trial; if that is allowed to happen, you can bet the farm, that this man will be on a fast track to a country which has no extradition treaties with the US.

What to know about British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein's alleged madam

Prosecutors allege in newly unsealed court documents that the financier Jeffrey Epstein used an extensive network of employees and close associates to target and recruit underage girls for sexual relationships.

One of Epstein's alleged employees, the British-born socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, 57, has been the subject of allegations for years that she was Epstein's top accomplice, accused of recruiting victims and abusing them alongside the financier.

Despite not being named in the most recent indictment of Epstein and denying any wrongdoing, Maxwell has previously been named as Epstein's madam in testimony given to media outlets and in legal documents created in a defamation suit against her. As a result, the Oxford graduate has come under a sharper spotlight nearly two decades after first appearing alongside New York highfliers like Donald Trump, who was then a real-estate developer.

Bill Clinton Lying About Epstein Relationship: Report

Bill Clinton is lying about his involvement with arrested pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, according to investigative journalist Conchita Sarnoff - who first revealed the former president's extensive flights on Epstein's "lolita express" in a 2010 Daily Beast exposé.

Clinton claimed in a Monday statement that he only took "a total of four trips on Jeffrey Epstein's airplane" in 2002 and 2003, and that Secret Service accompanied him at all times.

According to Sarnoff's research as well as flight logs obtained by Fox News in 2016, that's a complete lie.

Sarnoff, who heads up the Alliance to Rescue Victims of Trafficking and the author of "Trafficking," told Fox News Monday evening: "I know from the pilot logs and these are pilot logs that you know were written by different pilots and at different times that Clinton went, he was a guest of Epstein's 27 times," adding "many of those times Clinton had his Secret Service with him and many times he did not."

Billionaire sex offender Epstein once claimed he co-founded Clinton Foundation

Attorneys for convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein touted his close friendship with Bill Clinton and even claimed the billionaire helped start Clinton's controversial family foundation in a 2007 letter aimed at boosting his image during plea negotiations, FoxNews.com has learned.

The 23-page letter, written by high-powered lawyers Alan Dershowitz and Gerald Lefcourt, was apparently part of an ultimately successful bid to negotiate a plea deal before Epstein could be tried for using underage girls in a sex ring based in Palm Beach, Fla., and his private island estate on the 72-acre Virgin Islands home dubbed “Orgy Island.” Epstein spent 13 months in prison and home detention after agreeing to a plea deal in which he admitted to soliciting an underage girl for prostitution.

The Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board Signals It Will investigate NSA Surveillance, Facial Recognition, and Terror Watchlists

By Matthew Guariglia

After a long dormant stretch, the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board (PCLOB) has signaled it’s ready to tackle another big review of government surveillance and overreach. The PCLOB, an independent agency in the executive branch, last published a 2014 report on warrantless surveillance of the Internet by the U.S. intelligence community. While EFF welcomes the PCLOB’s efforts to bring oversight and transparency to the most controversial surveillance programs, we’ve disagreed with some of the Board’s findings, particularly on surveillance under FISA Section 702. So while it’s a good sign that the board is turning its attention to other major issues, its mixed history means it may be a little too soon to get your hopes up...

Wikipedia Editors Battle to Hide Bill Clinton’s Link to Jeffrey Epstein

Wikipedia editors are currently battling to hide disgraced sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein’s connection to Bill Clinton while emphasizing his connection to Donald Trump.

Clinton flew on Epstein’s ‘Lolita Express’ private jet at least 26 times and this was reported by multiple media outlets in 2016.

However, any reference to this on Epstein’s Wikipedia page disappeared for a time yesterday before being added back in.

The current Wikipedia page for Epstein does mention his link to Clinton but devotes more words to the billionaire’s ties to Donald Trump, which were less direct.

On Sunday, a top Republican legislator, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) took the gloves off in an unusually acerbic public attack on former leaders of the FBI and CIA.

Alex Acosta defended his handling of a controversial plea deal with billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein Tuesday as the top three Senate Democratic leaders called on the labor secretary to resign.

Acosta took to a Twitter offensive on Tuesday, saying he supports the “horrific” new charges against the billionaire financier while defending his own past actions. The financier is now charged with running a sex ring of underage girls.

“With the evidence available more than a decade ago, federal prosecutors insisted that Epstein go to jail, register as a sex offender and put the world on notice that he was a sexual predator,” he said. “Now that new evidence and additional testimony is available, the NY prosecution offers an important opportunity to more fully bring him to justice.”

Arab-Israel MK: Netanyahu using Iran tensions to stay in power

Arab-Israeli Knesset Member (MK) Yousef Jabareen has claimed that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is using tensions with Iran to stay in power ahead of the country’s general election.

Speaking to British newspaper the Express, Jabareen explained that Netanyahu “will do anything to survive” Israel’s upcoming general election on 17 September, including overstating tensions with Iran and conducting “military attacks” on the already-besieged Gaza Strip.

Netanyahu’s prospects of re-election as yet remain uncertain, with the latest polls showing he could face a repeat of April’s outcome, when he failed to form a government after deadlocked coalition talks. Having been told he can only cancel September’s election in the event of extreme circumstances such as war, there is now speculation that Netanyahu could take drastic steps to avoid electoral defeat.

Why the Trump White House Is Caught Up in the Jeffrey Epstein Scandal

Mr. Acosta, whom Mr. Trump nominated as labor secretary in 2017, has faced intense scrutiny for his role in Mr. Epstein’s deal to avoid prosecution, which has been widely criticized as shockingly lenient.

A series of investigative stories by The Herald last year revealed that Mr. Acosta was personally involved in the negotiations. He met privately with one of Mr. Epstein’s lawyers, who was also one of Mr. Acosta’s former colleagues.

In subsequent weeks, prosecutors from Mr. Acosta’s office gave Mr. Epstein’s lawyers an unusual amount of control over the terms of the plea deal, The Herald reported.

“Thank you for the commitment you made to me,’’ Mr. Epstein’s lawyer wrote in a letter to Mr. Acosta after their meeting, noting that Mr. Acosta had assured him that he would not contact “any of the identified individuals, potential witnesses or potential civil claimants,” The Herald reported.

She touted her record fighting for civil rights as attorney general of California and defended the Voting Rights Act and the Civil Rights Act, and called for passing an Equality Act.

CrowdStrikeOut: Mueller’s Own Report Undercuts Its Core Russia-Meddling Claims

While the 448-page Mueller report found no conspiracy between Donald Trump's campaign and Russia, it offered voluminous details to support the sweeping conclusion that the Kremlin worked to secure Trump's victory. The report claims that the interference operation occurred "principally" on two fronts: Russian military intelligence officers hacked and leaked embarrassing Democratic Party documents, and a government-linked troll farm orchestrated a sophisticated and far-reaching social media campaign that denigrated Hillary Clinton and promoted Trump.

But a close examination of the report shows that none of those headline assertions are supported by the report’s evidence or other publicly available sources. They are further undercut by investigative shortcomings and the conflicts of interest of key players involved:

Jeffrey Epstein prosecution could rise or fall on a single word

The new sex-trafficking prosecution against Jeffrey Epstein could rise or fall on how a judge interprets a single, rather mundane word.

The pivotal term — “globally” — lurks on the second page of a seven-page agreement signed in 2007 and finalized the following year, detailing a pledge by federal prosecutors in Florida not to prosecute Epstein for serial sexual abuse of underage girls if he pleaded guilty to two prostitution-related felonies in state court.

“IT APPEARING that Epstein seeks to resolve globally his state and federal criminal liability…” reads the document laying out what critics have described as a sweetheart deal well-connected defense lawyers won from the then-U.S. Attorney for Southern Florida Alex Acosta, who now serves as Labor secretary.
Some lawyers say Epstein’s future may turn on how much weight the courts give to that tricky adverb.

“That word is his best hope,” said Loyola Law School law professor Laurie Levenson, a former federal prosecutor.

Investigative Journalist: Bill Clinton 'not telling the truth' about Jeffrey Epstein

Investigative journalist Conchita Sarnoff said Monday that former President Bill Clinton isn’t telling the truth when he says he "knows nothing" of the alleged crimes of Jeffrey Epstein.

Sarnoff, who’s the executive director of Alliance to Rescue Victims of Trafficking and the author of her book “Trafficking,” appeared on Fox News @ Night after an indictment alleging sex trafficking and sex trafficking conspiracy was unsealed Monday morning against Epstein, while Clinton's spokesman issued a statement denying knowledge of Epstein's alleged behavior.

Epstein, the wealthy and politically connected financier who pleaded not guilty during his initial appearance in a New York City federal court, is accused of preying on "dozens" of victims as young as 14.
