Woman Claims Ghislaine Maxwell Raped Her Repeatably

Published

on

A woman going by Jane Doe claimed to Fox News that Ghislaine Maxwell raped her repeatably for years and that the British socialite is no different than Jeffrey Epstein, pure evil, Fox News reported.

“She did rape me. I would say it’s more than 20 or 30 times,” Doe told Fox. “She is just as evil as Jeffrey Epstein … She is a rapist. “She is an evil person. I don’t believe that Jeffrey Epstein could have obtained the magnitude of victims that he had had it not been for her,” Doe added “She destroyed what was supposed to be the best years of my life, being a teenager and being a cheerleader.”

The woman said she is willing to testify against Maxwell, stating the daughter of Robert Maxwell, raped her dozens of times – beginning when she was just 14 years old.

Doe claimed the years of sexual abuse only came to an end after she had become pregnant with Jeffrey Epstein’s baby at 16 and had an abortion.

Maxwell was arrested Thursday on six federal charges, the indictment alleges that Maxwell helped Epstein groom girls as young as 14 years old, going back as far as 1994, Anewspost reported.

Suspecting that the woman had told her grandparents about the abortion, and fearful she would talk to authorities, Doe saidm Maxwell, Epstein, and others retaliated gang-raping her one last time as punishment. “Ghislaine was a part of it,” Doe said. “I was drugged.”

After the rape, Doe stated, a driver with a gun chauffered her home. “I was dumped off in my grandparent’s yard naked, and was told that I wouldn’t come back alive the next time,” Doe said.

Doe claims that Epstein’s abuse has caused her to have a lonely life relationship-wise. “I had never been with anyone except for him [Epstein],” said Doe, who is part of a lawsuit filed against Epstein’s estate over a year ago. “The fact that I had to kill my child really affected me and my family.”

Doe also told the news station that she was threatened that if she ever told anyone about the abuse and baby, something would happen to her or her family.

Fearful for her life, Doe said, her grandfather put her into hiding. She dropped out of high school. “I basically kind of vanished,” she said. “Ms. Maxwell was a participant, and she made it very clear that I was to keep my mouth shut or harm would come to my family, and myself and harm did come to me.”

The woman added, descriptive comments about the grooming that she endured telling Fox in detail the horrors she went through at the hands of Epstein and Maxwell.

“It was her more or less, coaching,” Doe said. “Do it this way and do it that way, because once you become a model, this is what they’re going to expect from you.”

The butler or manager for Epstein’s Palm Beach mansion during 2004 and 2005, Alfredo Rodriguez, who died of a rare cancer mesothelioma testified to Maxwell’s heavy involvement. 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.

The book would be recovered as part of a sting operation with an undercover FBI agent, who acted as an associate of a cooperating witness, and Rodriguez would be charged with obstructing justice and sentenced to 18 months in prison — a longer sentence than Epstein himself received compared to 13 months.

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

Virginia Giuffre has also made claims against Maxwell raping her. In fact, her claims are backed up by another witness’s deposition in the unsealed documents, Tony Figueroa. Epstein’s former bodyguard testified that Giuffre told him about threesomes that involved herself, Maxwell, and Epstein. Figueroa added that Giuffre told him that “strap-ons,” were used and claimed that Epstein wanted Giuffre to have sex with Prince Andrew, Maxwell, and “all the other girls.”

Another victim Sarah Ransome claimed in a BBC Panorama interview that “Ghislaine controlled the girls.” “She would be the one getting all the girls in check. She knew what Jeffrey liked … this was very much a joint effort,” Ransome said.

The woman added, that the pair “took away her passport to prevent her from escaping Epstein’s private island.”

“I have never met someone that has been so dismissive of other human beings in my life,” Ransome stated.

“She basically treated us like we were s*** on her shoe…the way she spoke to us, the way she bullied us right from the start.”

Jennifer Araoz another accuser filed a lawsuit against his estate, his longtime associate Ghislaine Maxwell and three unnamed female household staff members last year. In her lawsuit, Araoz states that Ghislaine facilitated and participated in the abuse.

If that’s not enough to show Ghislaine’s alleged character, Christina Oxenberg — a cousin to the British royal family and sister of Catherine Oxenberg — previously stated an odd encounter she had with Maxwell, in which Jeffrey Epstein’s girlfriend had a ladies’ tea party in her underwear and bra with other friends. But that’s not the shocking part, according to Oxenberg, Maxwell threw a puppy across the room multiple times at this party for fun.

“She thought it was funny to throw this poor puppy across the room,” Oxenberg said. She adds, “More than once, she threw the quivering little bundle violently across the room. She thought this was hilariously funny.” Oxenberg’s recollection of the party appears as part of her tell-all memoir that the writer has been updating every week on her Patreon.

“That was my cue to leave. I thought, “These are not people I want to be friends with.”’

The tea party was alleged to have taken place, in 1991 — just after Maxwell’s media mogul father Robert died, and before she met and dated Epstein.

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

Colombian Govt Wants To Legalize Cocaine And Then Sell It

Published

on

This article was originally published On Dec 3, 2020

Colombia is one of the most notorious producers of cocaine in the world, despite the fact that the country has gone to great lengths in hopes of diminishing the trade of the drug trade within its borders.

Now, some members of the Columbian government are proposing a new approach. They are calling for the drug to be legalized and for the government to take control of the industry for themselves.

In a new bill first proposed earlier this year, senators Iván Marulanda and Feliciano Valencia call for the Colombian government to take total control of the cocaine industry to bolster public funds and cut violent cartels out of the trade.

In a recent interview with VICE, Marulanda explained that the government would purchase coca at market price from the 200,000 farming families that are believed to be involved in the trade.

The senators argued that it would actually be cheaper for authorities to buy the crop from the farmers than it would for them to destroy their crops. It costs the government roughly $1 billion every year to destroy coca crops, while it would only cost about $680 million to buy it.

The thing is, we have to recover control over the state. We’re losing control of the state to corruption, narcos in politics. They’re in municipalities, in departments and in congress. All the way to the highest echelons of government,” Marulanda explained.

From here, the state would supply cocaine to users and research groups looking to study its use for painkillers, but it would not be sold recreationally. However, cocaine use is already legal in Columbia, after a court ruled that personal consumption was a human right.

Marulanda is not sure if his bill will make an impact, or how long it will take to gain traction, but he is hoping to make it a major election issue in 2022.

‘The first big obstacle is to open up the conversation among public opinion. This has been a giant taboo. Colombians are born and raised under this assumption that drug-trafficking is a war. There’s no information about coca and cocaine. So, with this bill we hope to open the conversation,” he explained.

In recent years, the government has stepped up their military-police-style enforcement of the industry, and yet cocaine production continues to grow in the country.

Coca cultivation reached 212,000 hectares last year, a rise of nearly 2% from 208,000 hectares the year before, according to figures released by the White House in March. Potential pure cocaine production, meanwhile, rose to 951 metric tons, an 8% increase, according to the Associated Press.

“It’s pretty remarkable that they manually eradicated 100,000 hectares last year and didn’t move the needle,” Adam Isacson of the Washington Office on Latin America think tank said earlier this year. “I guess it means replanting has at least kept pace.”

It seems that no matter what the government does, the cocaine keeps on coming, so politicians are willing to try things that may drastic. However, as Marulanda pointed out in his interview with Vice, cutting out the criminal middlemen will reduce the violence seen in the country’s drug war, and also make the drug safer for the people who use it.

Another Little Black Book That Once Belonged To Epstein With New Names Is Found

Published

on

It is well-known that the late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein kept detailed records of all the powerful people that he stayed in contact with. There is a notorious “little black book” that was published by Gawker in 2015, which exposed many of the powerful people in his circle. This book is believed to contain the contacts that he most frequently called around 2004 and 2005. However, a new list of contacts, recently published by The Insider, reveals new names that were friends with Epstein in the 1990s.

The new black book has the names of 349 people, many of whom did not appear in the list that was previously released to the public.

Among the names on the list are Suzanne Ircha, who’s married to Woody Johnson, owner of the New York Jets, famous wall street investor Carl Icahn, supermarket owner John A. Catsimatidis, actress Morgan Fairchild, former New Republic owner Marty Peretz; and Cristina Greeven, the wife of CNN anchor Chris Cuomo.

The new black book was made public through a strange twist of fate. A woman initially found the book in the late 1990s and saved it for many years until she finally sold it on eBay.

Denise Ondayko, the woman who found the book, said she was walking down Fifth Avenue in the mid-’90s when she spotted a black address book on the ground. She said that she didn’t realize it was Epstein’s book at the time, because he was pretty much unknown to the public, but she did realize that it had a lot of famous names and figured that it might be worth something, so she held onto it.

Last year, Ondayko was cleaning out an old storage unit where she was keeping some of her things and she stumbled upon the book. Now that Epstein was all over the news, the information contained in the book was much more obvious to identify.

Ondayko said she reached out to everyone in the media that she could, including John Oliver, Rachel Maddow, and The New York Times, but none of them ever got back to her, so she eventually just put it up for sale on eBay.

The buyer was Chris Helali, an aspiring politician from Vermont. He purchased the book for $425.

Helali also tried reaching out to the media, including journalists that were already reporting on Epstein, but none of them seemed interested. Finally, Nick Bryant, the reporter who wrote the original Gawker black book story forwarded the book to the Insider who decided to publish.

Insider hired Dennis Ryan, a former forensic document examiner and laboratory supervisor for the Nassau County Police Department, to verify the authenticity of the book. Ryan says that the book is definitely from the late 90s, and many of the dates and addresses match up perfectly with Epstein’s properties and known contacts at the time.

The Insider also reached out to dozens of contacts listed in the book who had never previously been publicly associated with Epstein. Fourteen acknowledged on the record that they knew or had met Epstein in the ’90s.

There are over 120 names that appear in both books, including Donald Trump and Bill Clinton. Some of the other names included, Steve Rattner, Beth Anne Bovino, Dominique Bluhdorn, Jill Harth, Ted Field, Robert Nunnery, Stanley Shopkorn, Steve Ruchevsky, Ellen Susman, William and Ann Nitze, Les Gelb, Ron Daniel, Sandy Warner, Cyril Fung, Marius Fortelni, Michael Cutlip. Many of these names aren’t necessarily famous, but they are very powerful people in business and finance.

The address book is now available in a searchable database on the Insider, but it is unfortunately hidden behind a paywall.

Ghislaine Maxwell’s Lawyers Cite Cosby Case As Precedent To Have Her Released From Prison

Published

on

Last week, former actor Bill Cosby was released from prison on a technicality, despite the fact that he admitted to drugging and assaulting multiple women, and was accused by many others. After his release, legal experts warned that the ruling could set a dangerous precedent that attorneys in similar cases would use to get their clients released as well.

Now, just a week later, Ghislaine Maxwell’s lawyers are arguing that she should have her case thrown out on the same grounds, according to The Guardian.

Cosby was released because the prosecutor involved initially didn’t press any charges, and claimed that Cosby would not be facing any legal trouble, so when Cosby later confessed, his confession was called into question and no longer admissible in court. The judge also ruled that Cosby had no chance of a fair trial because evidence that was not admissible was so freely available in the media that the jury was unable to make a judgment without considering those facts.

Maxwell’s case is similar because the first time that Epstein was arrested for human trafficking, he was given a sweetheart deal by Alex Acosta, a friendly prosecutor. The deal helped Epstein avoid any serious jail time, but it also gave him and his associates legal protection from being held accountable for any future crimes.

Obviously, it is not possible to shield a criminal from the consequences of actions that they will take in the future, so Epstein was arrested again many years later after it was discovered that he continued his crimes long after his initial arrest. If Epstein and his friends did have any kind of immunity from that deal, it ended when they continued to commit crimes after the deal was made.

Still, Maxwell’s lawyers are optimistic after Cosby’s recent release.

“The government is trying to renege on its agreement and prosecute Ms Maxwell over 25 years later for the exact same offenses for which she was granted immunity,” Maxwell’s lawyers wrote in a statement to Judge Alison Nathan.

However, the judge has previously ruled that the deal did not apply to the current case.

In an opinion piece for the New York Daily News, Maxwell’s attorney David Oscar Markus wrote that releasing Bill Cosby from prison was the right decision, and that Ghislaine Maxwell should be released as well. Markus argued that prosecutors should have to keep the promises that they make to suspects, because people will sometimes incriminate themselves if they think they have immunity.

However, many times prosecutors are corrupt and make promises that are against the best interests of the public, as we saw in Jeffrey Epstein’s first “sweetheart deal” with Alex Acosta while he was district attorney in Southern, Florida. Prosecutors are lawyers, they aren’t the judge and jury, and they shouldn’t hold this much power in a case this serious.

Judge Alison Nathan has not yet responded to the recent request, but she did condemn the recent opinion piece that was published by her lawyers in the New York Daily News earlier this week.
