Ghislaine Maxwell Epstein’s Madam Has Been Arrested By The FBI

Jeffrey Epstein’s madam, Ghislaine Maxwell, has been arrested by the FBI and is in custody in New Hampshire, Miami Herald reported.

Prosecutors allege Maxwell helped Epstein traffic and abuse underage girls; Epstein was found dead in his cell under suspicious circumstances last year.

The British socialite was arrested in Bedford, New Hampshire around 8:30 a.m. on charges she conspired with Epstein to sexually abuse minors, and is expected to appear in a federal court later today, according to two law enforcement sources that spoke with NBC 7 New York.

There is also expected to be a press conference today at noon according to the U.S. Attorney Of Southern District New York’s Twitter account.

The six-count indictment in Manhattan federal court alleges that Maxwell helped Epstein groom girls as young as 14 years old, going back as far as 1994. The indictment charges include – conspiracy to entice minors, transporting minors, and perjury.

“In some instances, Maxwell was present for and participated in the sexual abuse of minor victims,” the indictment says.’

Maxwell allegedly helped Epstein groom teen girls for sex with the rich and powerful. One of those teeen victims, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, accused Maxwell in a 2015 defamation suit, as have a number of other women since.

In fact, the butler or manager for Epstein’s Palm Beach mansion during 2004 and 2005, Alfredo Rodriguez, who died of a rare cancer mesothelioma, said Maxwell was heavily involved in the ring. Rodriguez died suddenly of cancer during the first trial of Jeffrey Epstein and only testified a few different times about what he knew. Rodriguez also circled and wrote notes inside Epstein’s black book. A few of those annotations of Epstein’s address book included Epstein’s “Apt. for models” next to the 301 East 66th St entry.

Rodriguez pointed at Ghislaine Maxwell being heavily involved in the operation, stating in his now unsealed testimony that “she kept nude photos of the girls and those blackmailed on her computer.”

Maxwell also acquired her helicopter flying license to fly anyone she wanted to the island going all the way back to the 1990s according to Vanity Fair.

Earlier this yeer, Maxwell sued Jeffrey Epstein’s estate for financial legal fees and personal protection costs as a result of receiving death threats.

Epstein was found hanging in his cell last year, after the release of thousands of documents implementing high-level officials and accusing Maxwell.

Epstein a 6′ foot tall man was found impossibly hanging by a bedsheet strapped to a bunk bed according to the NY Post.

There are numerous holes in what was reported as the official narrative. As an example, one of the guards that was supposed to be guarding Epstein was actually a substitute. It has also been alleged that shrieking was heard from Epstein’s cell, and we can’t tell why because there were no cameras pointing at the cell from the outside or within the cells themselves, NY Post reported.

Curiously, security footage recorded in the correctional facility on the first attempt was reported to have been lost, found then accidentally destroyed in December.

Further, it was reported that the guards who previously said they were working overtime when Epstein “killed himself” were actually sleeping on the job and forged check-up papers in the prison wing as ZeroHedge reported.

The autopsy performed on Epstein found that he broke multiple bones in his neck, including the hyoid bone, which in men is near the Adam’s apple.

These breaks can occur in those who hang themselves, particularly if they are older, according to forensics experts and studies on the subject. However, the report notes they are more common in victims of homicide by strangulation. (As a side note, this is an old symbol used by the mafia/mob to silence someone or anyone else who might dare speak.)

Studies cited by The Washington Post suggested between six percent and one-quarter of hanging suicides could see the hyoid break.

This is significant because Epstein himself warned that someone tried to kill him weeks before and notified authorities, The Washington Post first reported after his death.

Since then, a follow-up report by the NY Post has confirmed that claim, stating that Epstein had told his lawyers that his cellmate — alleged mobster and ex-cop Nicholas Tartaglione — had injured him choking him weeks prior. This is the reason that Epstein wasn’t on suicide watch according to his lawyers.

It’s worth noting that Tartaglione was allegedly transferred one day prior before Epstein’s death.

However, Epstein’s guards reportedly fell asleep during the hours before his death, then falsified paperwork to try and cover their tracks. So is it implausible to think that Tartaglione wasn’t transferred a day before Epstein’s death and that the shrieking heard was Epstein having his neck snapped by the alleged mobster and former cop?

Still, many questions remain, there is even more strangeness than most are reporting. According to reports, Epstein also spent two hours locked up alone with a mystery woman — possibly part of his legal team — one day after he was taken off suicide watch after Tartaglione had attempted to strangle him.

To add to the oddness, Epstein’s body was claimed from the New York City medical examiner’s office by an unknown associate according to NBC News.

It has additionally been reported that Epstein told his lawyers hours before his death that he would “see them Sunday” (tomorrow.)

“He thought he was going to win the double-jeopardy motion” that his defense lawyers were planning to file in connection with his 2008 Florida prostitution conviction, the source said. The multimillionaire — who was jailed in Lower Manhattan on orders from a judge who cited his “uncontrollable” sexual urges  — also “had hope of getting bail on appeal,” the source said, through  an application that was pending before the US Second Circuit Court of Appeals at the time of his death. “What he really wanted to do was get bail so he could cooperate,” a source told New York Post.

Even Epstein’s own lawyers don’t believe the wealthy financier pedophile committed suicide. Three of Mr. Epstein’s lawyers — Martin G. Weinberg, Reid Weingarten and Michael Miller — challenged the findings and vowed to conduct their own investigation, CBS reported at the time.

“We are not satisfied with the conclusions of the medical examiner,” said the lawyers, who had hired a private pathologist to observe the autopsy, in a statement. “We will have a more complete response in the coming days.”

Later, a lawyer who met with Jeffrey Epstein has said that his potential client “didn’t kill himself.”

Civil rights and criminal defense attorney David Schoen said that he met with sex offender and accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein in prison days before he was found dead, adding that he believes the pedophile didn’t kill himself.

I saw him a few days earlier,” Schoen told Fox Nation’s Deep Dive. “The reason I say I don’t believe it was suicide is for my interaction with him that day. The purpose of asking me to come there that day and over the past previous couple of weeks was to ask me to take over his defense.”

Epstein’s death has been disputed by private pathologist Michael Baden who was hired by Epstein’s brother Mark. Baden has stated that the autopsy photos and Epstein’s broken hyoid bone, prove that Epstein didn’t kill himself as TMU has previously reported.

60 Minutes also debunked Epstein’s supposed noose he used to kill himself calling it “fake.

Epstein was accused of sexual trafficking by over 40 victims who allege sexual abuse. His clients are alleged to be former President Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, President Trump and many others alleged by victims.

Maxwell has been confident up until this point that she could dodge prosecution because she has  “serious dirt” on powerful people, Laura Goldman a friend of British socialite’s family told the Sun months go.

“Ghislaine and her sister Isabel remain totally convinced that she’ll escape any criminal convictions and will eventually clear the family name and return to high society once the dust has settled.

She has wealthy connections who hide her and even pay some legal fees. She can stay out of the public eye as long as she wants.”

Goldman added, that Maxwell was “more relieved than anything” because “he couldn’t turn on her,” after Ghislaine had heard of the death of Epstein.

It is hard to deny that there was a massive network behind Epstein protecting him and others when there was an illegal plea deal and perpetrators were hidden. Beyond that, there were  threats and harassment being flung around to witnesses, victims, and even a Senator Lauren Book.

Book alleged she was threatened for seeking to investigate Epstein’s case by demanding a state inquiry into Palm Beach Sheriff Ric Bradshaw’s handling of accused sex trafficker’s lenient work release program, the Miami Herald reported.

“I’ve received countless phone calls saying ‘Little girl you don’t know what you’re getting into,’ and telling me that I should just stop,’’ Book said in an interview with the Herald.

Ironically, Book herself is a child sexual abuse survivor and has worked relentlessly to pass strict sex offender laws in Florida.

Some have gone so far as to suggest it is possible that those same individuals could have had the convicted pedophile killed to keep their dirty sick secret.

A bizarre interview by M.L. Nestel with Jeffrey Epstein’s driver, bodyguard, and personal trainer — MMA fighter Igor Zinoviev — seems to indicate that there is a danger to those who speak out about the ring.

Zinoviev also tried to deny an earlier claim that local police had tipped off Epstein to a pending raid at his mansion and told Nestel, “don’t put yourself in trouble.”

“Listen, you’re really smart, and I’m not going to offer that over the phone right now, okay? You’re really smart,” Zinoviev said. “You have no idea. Please!”

Zinoviev also added that he believed Epstein’s death was assisted in the interview, although, he didn’t elaborate how stating: “Listen, you know, that’s going a little too deep.”

“Somebody helped him to do that,” Igor Zinoviev told New York Magazine.

If Ghislaine Maxwell dies in custody like Epstein, it will be abundantly clear that there is a powerful network that doesn’t want to be outed. Maybe, U.S. authorities with integrity should use the NSA to tap into alleged co-conspirators of Epstein and Maxwell so they aren’t back at square one again.

Nancy Pelosi Reelected As House Speaker In Narrow Vote

Published

Nancy Pelosi won another term as Speaker of the House of Representatives on Sunday, after a narrow vote.

80-year-old Pelosi will hold the position for a second consecutive two-year term and fourth overall, having previously been elected in 2007, 2009 and 2019.

Pelosi has served as a US representative from California since 1987. A member of the Democratic Party, she is the only woman in U.S. history to serve as Speaker and, until the inauguration of Kamala Harris as Vice President, is the highest-ranking female elected official in United States history.

As House speaker, Pelosi is second in the presidential line of succession, after the vice president.

During her first speakership, she was instrumental in the passage of many of the Obama administration’s landmark bills, including the Affordable Care Act, the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Repeal Act, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, and the 2010 Tax Relief Act.

Pelosi lost the speakership in 2011 after the Republican Party won a majority in the House of Representatives in the 2010 elections.

She retained her role as leader of the House Democratic Caucus and returned to the role of House minority leader. In the 2018 midterm elections, the Democrats regained control of the House.

When the 116th Congress convened on January 3, 2019, Pelosi was again elected speaker, becoming the first former speaker to return to the post since Sam Rayburn in 1955.

Under Pelosi’s leadership, the House of Representatives impeached President Donald Trump on December 18, 2019.

Despite supporting the $2000 checks for struggling Americans, Pelosi, along with everyone in congress have provoked anger from citizens who see them as being out of touch with the average people.

The nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics (CRP) estimated in 2009 that Pelosi’s average net worth was $58 million which ranks her 13th among 25 wealthiest members of Congress.

Roll Call said Pelosi’s earnings are connected to her husband’s heavy investments in stocks that include Apple, Disney, Comcast, and Facebook. Roll Call reported that the Pelosis have $13.46 million in liabilities including mortgages on seven properties.

According to Roll Call, Pelosi and her husband hold properties “worth at least $14.65 million, including a St. Helena vineyard in Napa Valley worth at least $5 million, and commercial real estate in San Francisco”.

FAA Responds To Numerous Reports Of A UFO Over Hawaii

The FAA was notified after multiple people reported seeing an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) in the sky over Leeward Oahu on Tuesday evening. Witnesses all over the region called into 911 at around 8:30 p.m.

Officials with the Federal Aviation Administration said that there were no aircraft incidents or accidents in this area at the time of the reports, but multiple witnesses reported seeing a large blue object fall out of the sky and into the ocean.

Some of the witnesses managed to get video or photos of the incident.

Witness Misitina Sape told Hawaii News Now she captured a photo of the object at 8:26 p.m. near Haleakala Avenue in Nanakuli.

Another witness named Moriah said she had never been a believer in UFOs until she saw the object fall from the sky.

“I started calling my husband and them because they were all in the garage. I was like hey. Come look up there. See if you see what I see. They all said yea!” Moriah said.

They jumped in the car to follow the object and see what it was.

“I don’t know what it was,” she said. “This one was going so fast.”

About three miles down the road, they saw the object fall into the water.

She said that it was larger than a telephone pole but didn’t make any sound when it hit the ground.

“We called 911,” Moriah said, “For have like one cop or somebody for come out and come check em out.

She also says that they saw another light in the sky after the blue object fell into the water. She says that police saw the second light as well.

“My husband went look up and he seen the white one coming,” she said. “The white one was smaller. Was coming in the same direction as the blue one.”

FAA spokesperson Ian Gregor said the agency received a report from police Tuesday night about a possible plane down in the area “but had no aircraft disappear off radars. And no reports of overdue or missing aircraft.”

Earlier this year, the Pentagon announced the formation of a new task force that will be studying UFOs or “Unidentified Flying Objects.”

The formation of this new task force was revealed last year when the Pentagon acknowledged that military pilots were encountering aircraft that might not have been made by humans.

The new task force was officially revealed to the public after the Pentagon released declassified videos that appeared to show government aircraft interacting with UFOs in the sky.

One of the videos, taken from US Navy aircraft, seems to show the pilots chasing a UFO off the east coast of the United States.

Navy pilots reported spotting the objects flying around 30,000 feet in the air at hypersonic speeds and showing no visible engines or exhaust plumes typical of any known aircraft currently on Earth.

The new agency has been called, The Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF).

Mitch McConnell’s House Vandalized Over $2,000 Checks

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had his home vandalized this week, after blocking the vote to increase stimulus payments to $2,000.

Messages like ‘WERES MY MONEY’ and ‘MITCH K1LLS THE POOR.’ were spray-painted on the building.

Police said that they don’t have any suspects.

On Saturday, McConnell released a statement to the Louisville Courier Journal which read: “Vandalism and the politics of fear have no place in our society. My wife and I have never been intimidated by this toxic playbook. We just hope our neighbors in Louisville aren’t too inconvenienced by this radical tantrum.”

In 2015, Time listed McConnell as one of the 100 most influential people in the world. McConnell is the longest-serving U.S. senator for Kentucky in history, and the longest-serving leader of U.S. Senate Republicans in history.

During the Trump administration, Senate Republicans, under McConnell’s leadership, broke records on the number of judicial nominees confirmed. Among those nominees were Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh who were recently confirmed to the Supreme Court.

McConnell’s critics have called him by a variety of different nicknames, including “Moscow Mitch”, “Cocaine Mitch”, the “Grim Reaper”, “Darth Vader”, “Rich Mitch”, “Nuclear Mitch”, and “Midnight Mitch.” On some occasions, he has even embraced these nicknames, although he was apparently unhappy with the more recent “Moscow Mitch.”

McConnell has a net worth of $35 million dollars, and many Americans feel that he is out of touch. He isn’t the only US politician that was a target for vandalism this week.

 

According to a report from TMZ this week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had her house vandalized with a pig’s head and fake blood.

Spray painted in black on the white garage door were the messages “$2K,”  an apparent reference to the $2,000 COVID stimulus checks that have been held up in the U.S. Senate, as well as “CANCEL RENT!” and “WE WANT EVERYTHING!”
