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.

Photos Show Epstein Cuddling With Young Girl On Private Jet

New photos that were recently obtained by journalists at The Daily Mail show Jeffrey Epstein cuddling with a sleeping young girl. The photos are said to have been taken on Epstein’s notorious private jet. The late billionaire pedophile reportedly took the girl to Disney World and was returning home with her when the photos were taken.

The most disturbing image shows Epstein sitting in his airplane with the young girl laying on top of his lap. Other photos showed the group’s trip to Disney World, where Epstein, the young girl, and others were seen posing with Disney characters like “Piglet” from “Winnie The Pooh.”

The young girl in the photos has not been identified, and it is not clear if she was one of Epstein’s victims, but the images certainly paint an ugly picture.

The Disney trip reportedly took place in 2004, which was a few years before he was first arrested. However, many victims say that his abusive behavior goes back far earlier than 2004.

Epstein’s associate and one-time girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell is also believed to have been on the trip, although she does not appear in any of the photos. Some of the faces on the photos are blurred out.

A source who was on the trip said, “It was a fun day. We ate in a restaurant with two of Jeffrey’s friends who he met there. Jeffrey however did not eat lunch. I hardly ever saw him eat at a restaurant. Food always had to be prepared by a personal chef.”

The source also said that Epstein and his entourage had full VIP access to the theme park and never had to wait in any lines.

“We were given a VIP tour of the park and someone was escorting us around from ride to ride. The group never had to be in line for a ride or a rollercoaster, we went to the front of the line each time,” the source told the Mail.

The source also claimed that the photo was innocent, despite how bad it looks in the context of what we now know about Epstein.

“It had been a long day and the girl just fell asleep in his arms. The picture is terrifying based upon what we know now but it was entirely innocent,” the source said.

Epstein reportedly flew about ten other people to Disney World for the Trip, including Ghislaine Maxwell, his personal assistant Sarah Kellen and Slovakian model Nadia Marcinkova.

New details about Epstein’s crimes and his associates are expected to be revealed during the upcoming criminal trial against Ghislaine Maxwell. Epstein and Maxwell were connected with major players on both sides of the political spectrum who have a lot to lose if Maxwell discusses their involvement with Epstein’s criminal network. With how many people that Epstein was connected to there is no telling what can be revealed in the upcoming trial.

Epstein allegedly died in his jail cell on August 10, 2019. The medical examiner ruled the death a suicide. Epstein’s lawyers have disputed the ruling, and there has been significant public skepticism about the true cause of his death.

Genetically Modified Mosquitoes Were Released In Florida

Published

Environmentalist groups have been warning about the danger of releasing genetically modified mosquitoes into the wild for years, but a plan to release the GM insects in the United States for the first time is scheduled to continue as planned.

Millions of GM mosquitoes will be released in the Florida Keys as a part of a pilot program that officials hope will reduce the spread of diseases like dengue, yellow fever, and the Zika virus.

The unprecedented release is being orchestrated by the British-based biotechnology firm Oxitec, and the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District (FKMCD), according to Reuters.

The project hopes to reduce the prevalence of the Aedes aegypti species, which is responsible for spreading many infections diseases.

On May 1st, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) granted an experimental use permit to Oxitecon for the release of the mosquitoes.

While regulators have signed off on the program and are confident of its safety, local residents are obviously very concerned about these insects being released in their back yards.

The plan has already been set into motion, and some of the insects have already been released. Oxitec opened about 6 boxes containing the OX5034 modified mosquito in the Florida Keys last week.

In theory, these genetically modified male mosquitos will mate with wild females, and their genetics will cause the children to die, which they hope will lead to a total collapse of the wild population.

However, there are also many different things that can go wrong with this type of live experiment, and there is growing concern among scientists that this technology may not be ready for deployment. Many experts have also suggested that the risks have not been studied thoroughly enough. Some scientists are warning about the potential unintended consequences that can come from unleashing such insects into the wild. For example, researchers are entirely unaware of what type of allergic reactions that these insects could cause if they interact with people.

Meredith Fensom, Oxitec’s head of global public affairs, told Reuters about the release.

“Inside we have a small container, and this is what we put the mosquito eggs in. We also have a small container for food. We leave it open. And then we fill the box, less than halfway full, with water. We close the lid, and after a week or two, our non-biting male mosquitoes begin to emerge,” she said.

These boxes contained roughly 12,000 mosquitoes, but the Oxitec says that they plan to release tens of millions of these incects in the region throughout the year.

This is not the first time that the company has released GM mosquitoes into the wild, this is just the first time that it has been done in the United States. Oxitec has previously launched similar projects in places like Brazil, Panama, the Cayman Islands and Malaysia, where they claim to have a success rate of over 90%.

The mosquitoes have also been designed to emit a fluorescent glow, so that when they are captured.

“That’s how we monitor for the project before, during and after to understand the mosquito population,” Fensom explained.

However, many experts disagree with the plan and have made attempts to organize against this strange use of genetic technology.

Bill Gates’ Relationship With Epstein Led To His Divorce

According to a shocking report published this week in the Wall Street Journal, Melinda Gates began meeting with divorce lawyers in October of 2019, which is around the same time that Bill Gates was listed among Jeffrey Epstein’s close associates.

According to sources close to the Gates family that were interviewed by the Journal, and documents shared with the site, Melinda said that her marriage with Bill was “irretrievably broken.”

The divorce was set into motion immediately after Bill Gates was implicated as a close friend of Epstein. In reports at the time, it was noted that Gates began his relationship with the notorious pedophile after he was already convicted of crimes against children.

However, Bill’s friendship with Epstein was a source of contention in his marriage long before his wife filed for divorce. In fact, she warned him not to associate with Epstein due to his notorious reputation and criminal convictions, an employee of the Gates Foundation told The Daily Beast. Despite this warning, Bill and some of his employees at the foundation continued to meet with Epstein.

When asked for a comment, a spokesman for Bill Gates told the Journal that he denied being friends with the late pedophile, referring to a statement he gave the paper last year saying that, “I met him. I didn’t have any business relationship or friendship with him.”

When pressed by other reporters about the relationship, Gates said that his proximity to Epstein was only a result of them both being so rich.

A statement that Bill and Melinda Gates made on Twitter last week made no mention of Epstein, and instead painted the picture of a professional couple breaking up on amicable terms.

“After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage. We have raised three incredible children and built a foundation that works all over the world to enable all people to lead healthy, productive lives,” the statement read.

The couple has been married since 1994 and there was reportedly no prenuptial agreement to decide the terms of their divorce. They have agreed to equally split their assets, although they are claiming that they will give much of the money away. They have made no public comments as to the private reasons behind their divorce, but the timing of the filing is certainly suspicious, and many people close to the family suspect that Bill’s connection to Epstein could have been a factor.

According to prosecutors, Epstein operated a “vast network” for child human trafficking between 2002 and 2005, which allowed him to “sexually exploit and abuse dozens of underage girls.” Many long-time friends like Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, and Prince Andrew have been implicated in Epstein’s illicit activities.

Epstein was arrested a second time on July 6, 2019, on federal charges for the sex trafficking of minors in Florida and New York. He died in his jail cell on August 10, 2019. The medical examiner ruled the death a suicide. Epstein’s lawyers have disputed the ruling, and there has been significant public skepticism about the true cause of his death.
