Rep. Matt Gaetz Has Been Smeared for the Past 18 Months
"Until proven innocent, 18 months ago, the media was fed reports that Matt Gaetz was about to be indicted by federal law enforcement. For sex trafficking, he very serious accusation. Because of this, a smear campaign was launched. So that anybody that would dare get close to Matt Gaetz would think twice. Now, at turning point USA and turning point action and the Charlie Kirk show, we kept on having Matt Gaetz on, but many other Republican establishment groups wanted nothing to do with Matt Gaetz. Matt Gaetz with charisma with energy with precision of arguments, one of the youngest, most outspoken people in Congress, they had to go after him and they went after him hard, but they didn't indict him. Instead, they kind of kept him in legal purgatory that he might be indicted at every moment you should stay away from him. Again, the punishment is the process because the government has unlimited money, they can string this thing along for years. And it's kind of a constitutional loophole. Because it's not, it's not cruel and unusual constitutionally because they haven't indicted you. They're just investigating you, but they're leaking along the way that they're investigating you. Going after Matt Gaetz for potentially human trafficking a baseless claim where they allowed Bill Clinton to go free with everything he did with Epstein island and Lolita express, which we will never quite understand the depth or the complexity of, but today Matt Gaetz received some welcome news from The Washington Post, the very same Washington Post that leaked the story originally. Might have been The New York Times, but whatever the point is at the media, career prosecutors are now recommending no charges for Matt Gaetz in sex trafficking probe. So all those 18 months of smearing his character of trying to keep him in a penalty box, preventing him from speaking, preventing him from raising money, trying to hope he'll resign. Now Matt Gaetz employed a very risky media strategy. He went all in. He leaned in. And I remember a lot of people that I talked to said, boy, if this works for Matt Gaetz, he is certainly setting a precedent, kind of around the Trump behavioral model of lean in, do media, don't sit down and shut up, career prosecutors recommend no charges for gates and sex trafficking probe. He stood up to the bullies. He stood up to the entire Department of Justice and FBI, and now they're saying oh, just kidding, we're not going to charge you.
Sebastian Talks Breaking News With Devin Nunes, CEO of Truth Social
"Himself in battle against the deep state as chairman of the intelligence committee of the House, and now he runs truth, social congressman, chairman, president, CEO, Devin Nunes, welcome in studio. C that's it is a pleasure, honestly, to be here. You've invited me for so many years and it's great to see your Millennium Falcon, all your Star Wars paraphernalia around here. You got your red phone. I mean, it's great. I think we have a similar vintage, so I think you can appreciate all the stuff that my wife will like me to get out of the house and stuff my studio full of. But my wife would like for me to get all this stuff out of the house. You have to get a show insane and then we have to build your studio and then we can fill it. All right, I'm glad we've got a sense of humor because in Reagan's tradition we have to be happy warriors. I can't butt start with the news to shocking items that we have we have Steve Bannon mentioned this last week after he has to go to New York he was on the show with us after he walked out of that indictment in New York that dozens of people associated with president Trump being ambushed being subpoenaed by the DoJ. We have the confirmation today, 44 zero, including our regular friend here, Boris Epstein, who is a lawyer to president Trump had his phone, his phone taken away from him by the federal authorities. And then as you're walking into the studio with your colleague, we find out that danchenko, the notorious danchenko sauce with the Steele dossier, thanks to Durham filing. We now know he's an FBI informant. Did you know all of this? Did you know the subpoenas were coming danchenko was a plant? I have to have your response. Well, I think that let's take the danchenko stuff first and we can come back to the other subpoenas that Steve Bannon mentioned. But this is really breaking news right now. It's only a few hours old, Durham went to unseal some findings and in that, just to remind the audience, danchenko was the super secret Russian source that when we were investigating this, everybody said, oh, these people are going to die. These are sources that are close to Putin, Putin could off of a minute minute and it ends up sea bass that he was like within a few blocks of here. Yeah, it was a
Ali Velshi: America Dodged a Bullet but the Gun Is Still Loaded
"If you want the news, where do you go, Chris? Where'd he go, Travis? America's news, man. Ali belty. That's right. And here he is again. Good morning, Ali velshi. Good morning to you, my friend. It is great to see you again on this Friday morning. It's a Friday's always a great long day for me. And this is my, you know, this is getting my blood flowing in the morning stretches. Yeah, yeah. Right. This is your stretch for your weekend. And I have my your pillow. Yes. If my pillow, not anything relevant about my pillow, I just thought I'd bring my pillow. You know, I was going to read this tweet to you because this is where we find ourselves. You having to be a news reporter in this day and age. Patrick tweets, a pillow magnate, just had his phone seized by the FBI at a hardee's in connection to a fired reality TV host trying to steal The White House and I'm begging the writers of America season 246 to please stop drinking for even one day. Do you not feel like that when you're just like, who else was it? Oh, somebody, oh, Don said, it seems almost written that Trump will be picked up at a McDonald's. Who was the other guy in a clown wig at dairy? And dairy Queen. The guy that said Trump is going to be reinstated. But that's real. That's real. Ally. Where do we find ourselves at this juncture? The problem is, and as I've traveled around the world, it's all like this, right? It's all stuff that you could discount as not sufficient to make a movie plot. The type of lawyers Trump surrounded him with the four seasons landscaping thing after the election. It's all the Christina bob as his lawyer. It's all like that except two problems are occurring. One is they actually did real damage and continue to do real damage. They actually ruined real people's lives. So aside from people who were killed on January 6th, a lot of people were duped who are now going to jail. And Donald Trump continues to phone in to their rallies and things like that and encouraged. Not a bit of remorse. If I ever did anything that caused another human to spend a night in detention, I would be racked with remorse forever. But number three, which is the most important is that everybody looks at that stupid clown car and says, you know, they weren't going to succeed at this, which is not entirely true, right? But for Mike Pence making a decision at the last minute, our democracy could have been fully imperiled. There are a whole lot of smarter people out there who aren't part of the clown car. Who aren't Rudy Giuliani who want to buy who aren't, you know, all these lawyers that he's got who are looking at this thinking, um, I can figure out a way to get this right so that isn't a pillow guy and a McDonald's and all of this kind of stuff. That's actually what I worry about. The too many people look at this ridiculousness and write it off as, wow, that was stupid and ridiculous. But we didn't really Dodge a bullet. We actually really did Dodge a bullet and we better be careful because the guns got more in them. Yeah, this has caused one of America's premier newsman Ali velshi to bring an actual prop on a morning radio show. You actually brought a pillow because if I want to be really good, I'd have a pillow and a phone because the pillow magnet had his phone set. That's right. Now, you're going to cover that this weekend about by the way, it is not easy to see someone's phone, right? I mean, there have been a number of phones. Tell us about how you're covering that this weekend. Well, so I want to try to make sense of it, right? Because of the January 6th committee, there's the Department of Justice investigation in which Merrick Garland seems to have woken up to the idea that despite the possible damage and martyrdom of Donald Trump, if he's indicted for anything, the Department of Justice has to take this seriously and in a timely manner. So the DoJ has seized a bunch of phones. They put out a bunch of subpoenas. Now keep in mind, we got, we got Boris Epstein. He had his phone taken. And Mike Roman, who was a campaign strategist for Trump had a phone taken. The pillow man had his Jeffrey Clark had his phone taken back in June, Dan scavino, the social media director, had his and Bernie kerik. Former commissioner of the New York police, who was working with Rudy Giuliani in overturning the election, had his phone taken. It is very hard to take somebody's phone, by the way. The Department of Justice can't do it as a fishing expedition like Donald Trump likes to say. You can't take a phone for purely investigative investigatory purposes. You have to have probable cause of a crime and convince someone that you do. There's a high bar to getting someone's phone. Now, my confusion is that when it comes to pillow guy and guys like that, I feel like they've said all the quiet parts out loud on either fox or whatever crazy outlook will have them. So I'm curious as to what could possibly be on their phone, but they haven't already said they're being sued by dominion voting. They're being sued by all sorts of people. So I don't know, but I will say this that between the January 6th committee and the Department of Justice, they've all been very deliberative, more deliberative than many of your listeners are my viewers would like them to be. We took them to move faster in some cases. They've been very deliberative. So if they're getting the stuff, one of two things is happening. They know there's valuable information on those phones or it's information they already know and they are now calling these guys in or looking at their phones to say, we already know this. We just need further corroboration before we place charges or things like that. So those two things are happening and I don't know which. Right. So this special master ruling, we just talked to Glenn kirschner about it. I mean, it's just, it's getting harder and harder to sort of cover, first of all, I don't even know how you keep track of all of these stories of lawbreaking, and which crimes are being investigated by who. But you know, I mean, I guess Trump has succeeded once again in at least delaying. Yes, that's exactly what it is because the special master has to get through the documents now by November 30th. Which, you know, the Trump people had wanted three months. The Department of Justice and wanted less. November 30th, the one, the one thing about that, and I guess the Department of Justice doesn't care to get politics involved in this, but there's a sort of political thing happening between now and November 30th and it's November 8th, right? It's the actual midterm elections in which it does seem that some Republicans and conservatives are disgruntled by the degree of criminality that seems to surround the former Trump administration and Trump today. And so that's the frustration that why November 30. This is just a delay tactic. There may or may not be some documents that were seized that were inappropriate, but generally speaking, the FBI and what's called its filter team do a relatively good job of this. So this is just going to be a way to do what Donald Trump has always done. One day, perhaps Donald Trump will face the music. Yeah. He's very, very, very good at delay, and that's what the special master essentially. Yeah. Speaking of politics, our Republicans trying to lose the midterms. Let's talk about the Lindsey Graham's proposed. Right? That's exactly right. And now this stunt was desantis and Abbott, you know, illegally flying migrants in some cruel prank. So it's cruel. It's cruel and the cruelty seems to be the point. I'm not sure that moves the needle politically all that much other than gets Democrats who were thinking of not voting. To vote. But I think abortion may have done that anyway. So I think you're seeing a lot of energy amongst Democrats, which you wouldn't have seen in the midterm typically. But the Lindsey Graham thing just weird, right? The
Chris Kohls Comments on the 'Terrifying' Police State of the Left
"So let's just finish up on this topic, Chris of what's happened in the last few days, because I'm just curious where you're at, where you are with regards to your personal reaction, because you are a conservative content provider. You are bold, you're putting stuff out there about the darlings of the left, like AOC, you're speaking truthfully about them, you're destroying the lies and the myths that they perpetrate. When you see what's happening around whether it's Mike lindell, Steve Bannon, whether you see the 40 recent subpoenas, my former colleague, Boris Epstein, how do you feel as an American are you worried? Oh yeah, oh yeah, that stuff is terrifying. And I will say that for somebody like me personally, it's not that big of a deal. I obviously know several people personally who have been raided by the FBI for January 6th and this sort of thing. But at the point that the rating Mike lindell's office and taking his phone, he doesn't have anything to do with anything. Like he's just a guy who supports Trump. He's a business owner that supports Trump. There is absolutely no justification for that. There's not even the illusion of a justification. I don't even know how they're pretending that that's justified. At this point, we do live in a sort of like a banana republic. We live in this police state where it's like, well, if you disagree with big brother, then the Gestapo is going to come in and they're going to take your phones and they're going to intimidate you with nothing. If nothing else, it's intimidation. But it could be as bad as you will get arrested. It does look like they're setting the stage for the arrest of Donald Trump. And I am actually kind of scared in terms of what's going to happen because they pretend that conservatives are basically ready for civil rule or at any point, right? We're all these kind of crazy conspiracy theorists and that January 6th was as insurrection and all this kind of stuff. We know it wasn't, right? There was a guy in a wookiee costume, you know, with like doing cosplay or something, and that guy was supposed to actually be this threat to democracy or something. We know that's ridiculous. However, there is a point at which the American people will have to rise up with revolution, right?
DOJ Has Been on a 40 Subpoena Blitz
"As you mentioned, 40 subpoenaed DoJ has issued 40 subpoenas over the past week. Wow, that's a lot. So Boris Epstein, Mike Roman, had the phone seized. The actions represent a substantial escalation of the investigation. To which Jodie and I say yay, Dan scavino was one of the people getting a subpoena Bernard Carrick. There's that name again. Oh boy. So can we ask him about using the respite suite for the 9 11 first responders to bang his girlfriend just for fun? I'm sorry. Girlfriends. There were two mistresses that he was banging in the apartment. Once we get once we get them under oath, just to ask them that just for fun. Right, just because it was the anniversary of 9 11. Right. It was two mistresses behind his wife's back at the apartment 9 11 workers. And the other one was a porn star, right? Right. Yes. Okay, so my point is so that it's hard to keep track of all the crimes, right? The subpoena is for the plan to submit the fake electors, right? Some subpoenas also seek information into the activities of the save America political action committee, oh my God, how many separate investigations do is this now? Do you think what I don't understand is given everything we know about Bannon's help us build the wall grift and the save America thing, how is this guy raising a dime? Are there that many stupid people in America? Apparently. Yeah. Well, this guy Clark saying, you know, you lord, you'd think there's less fools in this world. You know, I mean, so why would anybody send them any money now? I know. So at least 20 of the subpoenas sought information about communications with lawyers who took part in the fake electors scheme, including Giuliani and John eastman, I mean, for those of us that have veruca salted about the Department of Justice, it does seem like they are on the move. Does it not? Well, they're driving, they drop paper on Stephen Miller, which is great, right. And they drop paper on Newt Gingrich. And I would sell tickets to watch Newt Gingrich in front of the January 6th
Alex Jones Did Get Some Things Right
"Let's talk about Alex. I did have him last week because when you were just talking about it being an op, which I think you've clearly made out the case why it's at least plausible or if not. This is the kind of thing where I feel 5 years ago, if a Charlie Kirk was saying, you know, these were kind of a planned op outside my event, you would be called a conspiracy theorist and read out of polite society. Even in conservative circles, why do you think that that tide has changed so much that you could say this in pretty much no conservatives you're going to question your accusation? Yeah, look, I think the facts have shown us the last couple of years. I mean, I think Alex is wildly entertaining, by the way. I disagree with him on a lot of stuff. His style, I think the sandy hook thing was super questionable if I ever talked to him. I'd love to ask him about it. But he's been right about a lot and we're not allowed to say that out loud, by the way, that Alex Jones was right about a lot. And whether it be a lot of this globalism stuff, the open border stuff, and he obviously has a very unique style. I guess you could say. But there is something to be said though that what once was deemed to be a conspiracy theory is now deemed to be a mainstream accepted fact. And whether it be Russian collusion, I mean, the one I use the most, right? And Alex to his credit was on this, let's just say, comically and as entertaining as possible, was the Epstein island thing. Yeah. And I remember very clearly bringing up Epstein island in a conversation in Palm Beach in 2014 and being told by people that's a conspiracy theory. When literally three streets away, three streets away was Jeffrey Epstein's home doing the exact thing that I heard a rumor about. And they're like, oh, that's a conspiracy theory. It's not true. Well, we now know it's true we just don't know to what extent it's true. We probably do, but there's some gaps to be filled in that there was an island that was probably intelligence operation where underage girls were flown on private jets with world leaders from many different continents and governments to probably accumulate blackmail. That's a very big deal.
Donald Trump Jr.: I Hope People See This Injustice
"Know whether it's Hillary Clinton Anthony Weiner whether it's the Epstein documents whether it's the total coincidence I'm sure that the magistrate that signed off on the warrant was Epstein's lawyer and Obama appointee this is Warren just magically got on his desk Total coincidence marked nothing to see here But I think if anyone's been watching for the last few years you realize there is no more coincidence anymore All of this stuff is very heavily orchestrated when they lose control of the narrative which they've been doing a lot lately on the other side because it's so ridiculous if you were a screenwriter in Hollywood writing an action movie you couldn't come up with something insane or stupid They do what they've done for the last few or years which is selectively leaked to the media little tidbits that are end up being disproven in lies like the lie that they didn't in fact confiscate his passports which they did or the lies about the nuclear codes or whatever else Donald Trump supposedly had In the documents that Mar-a-Lago it never ends but I truly hope that in terms of driving people to get out and vote and to overwhelm whatever nonsense they're going to throw at us I hope that people are seeing this injustice and it's motivating them to understand that we've lost control of our country The bureaucrats are running things They've weaponized every aspect of our government against the people that would push back against that And that's a very scary proposition And I think we're seeing that play out before our very eyes
Donald Trump Jr.: The FBI Showed up With the Hostage Rescue Team
"It's beyond inconceivable. You know, if you were a Hollywood script writer and you pitched a plot for a movie that said that the lawyer who represented Jeffrey Epstein's team and people who worked for Jeffrey Epstein became a federal judge and then of all the thousands of judge judges in the country, he's the one who signed off on this Mar-a-Lago search warrant, which evidently allowed them to seize every single document generated during the four years of the Trump administration, which should have been the biggest red flag imaginable, but honest to goodness done, you wouldn't, that wouldn't pass muster. They'd laughed that writer out of the pitch room. That screenwriter would have been thrown out of Hollywood for publishing something unrealistic, and yet it's there. It's happening on a daily basis. We're seeing it before our very eyes. And it's just, you know, it's clearly a political vendetta. They have weaponized the FBI. I've been thinking about this but it wasn't like a couple of bureaucrat agents showed up to Mar-a-Lago to exercise this war. We heard about how desperate it was. And yet, you know, the Merrick Garland was weighing on it for weeks and months. Like I thought, you know, he had to nuclear codes. Remember that one last time? He still had him. It's incredible. He must have taken the nuclear football from The White House. They showed up with the FBI's hostage rescue team for your listeners who don't know what that is. That's like the field teams of the FBI. Right. You know, now I understand that like three weeks ago, there was a narrative that took about two seconds to disprove, although the January 6th inquisition committee didn't want to hear from the actual Secret Service, but there was the narrative that Donald Trump had choked out two young, heavily armed, very fit secret agents at the age of 75. During the January 6th to go be with his supporters, that took about two seconds to disprove, but they still ran with it for, you know, days and probably weeks.
Why Do You Need Privacy?
"Why do you need privacy? Orwell wrote about this expensively in 1984. If you can not have privacy you are not free. The state is able to go through your private musings. At that point, they're able to examine your consciousness. You can not be a free people without privacy. And for the federal government to be able to come in 270 man hours with 30 FBI agents into Mar-a-Lago and occupy Mar-a-Lago because of a paperwork dispute is outrageous. Now we learned what was in the warrant Friday, but the warrant isn't very telling what we demand is the affidavit. What did you tell the judge as it's so important that it can't wait that we have to go to Mar-a-Lago this very instant? Was Donald Trump constructing a dirty bomb in the Donald J Trump presidential ballroom? Was Donald Trump sex trafficking children through Mar-a-Lago? Well, they never raided Jeffrey Epstein's home for that or Bill Clinton's home, who's Donald Trump helping foreign cartels or the Iranian revolutionary guard. No, they said that Donald Trump had paperwork that he was supposed to return to the national archives. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton widespread destroyed them, Barack Obama has boxes of national archive records at Martha's Vineyard. No, no, no, no. We know what this was. This was a shot across the bow. This was a shock and awe campaign to show you that you are a subject, not a citizen.
The Government's Power Play
"I see what they're trying to do. I can't unsee it. I see that our government is untrustworthy. And that government officials that we once held at a high stature would now use the FBI against their political enemies. You can go out and put servers in your house and not go to jail. And you can conspire against a sitting president trying to create a coup within the FBI and you're not even getting in trouble. You could be Jeffrey Epstein with pedophile island and all of a sudden, 30 years later they catch you, and then nobody else has brought the justice. They could play every trial, the Parkland shooting, they could put the trial, listen to the testimony of the kids, but they won't show they won't tell you nothing happened in pedophile island. With mister I didn't kill myself.
What Will the Affidavit on the FBI Search Warrant Say?
"Have you noticed Everybody on our side quote unquote we need to see the affidavit We need the see the affidavit that's been attached to the warrant justice won't release it Won't release it master judge FogHorn down there and Florida Former Epstein defense counselor He's given the Department of Justice till 5 p.m. Eastern Time Monday To argue why he shouldn't release it typically not released as he heard Ladies and gentlemen what do people think we're going to find in this afternoon The truth I love the press Well you know I need the affidavit to know more You know that way well no exactly what they were getting at here what it is they wanted to that's right We need the affidavit here what's affidavit going to tell you I'm going to tell you that Trump was destroying documents when somebody's allegation Whoever signed the affidavit isn't an eyewitness to anything
Everything You Need to Know About the FBI Raid of Mar-A-Lago
"24 hour period we saw some of the most significant expansions of federal power ever. This is more significant than the creation of the Department of Homeland Security in 24 hours you saw to seemingly disconnected data points that are trying to achieve the exact same thing. You saw 87,000 new IRS agents approved by the U.S. Senate and you saw an armed raid of a former president and his home. What exactly happened yesterday? Well, Mar-a-Lago, for those of you that have never been there, it's a phenomenal spectacular property. I've had the blessing to be able to visit there a couple of times is the residents, not a property, is the residents of Donald Trump. It is his home. A hundred FBI agents showed up with weapons and a warrant that was signed by a judge we're still learning more about the judge because there's some information circulating about the judge saying that he might be connected to Jeffrey Epstein. We're going to get that confirmed. Shows up to Mar-a-Lago while he is in New York City. And walks out with 15 boxes, opens the safe, splinters the safe for what? The only action that could possibly justify that is if Donald Trump had an act of dirty bomb in the living room of Mar-a-Lago with an impending intent to try to blow up Miami. Or if Donald Trump was sex trafficking children via the Lolita express to some unknown island in the Caribbean. The idea of going in with armed federal agents, they knew exactly what they were doing though. This for weeks they were methodically planning this. Christopher wray knew about this raid when he was testifying smugly in front of the U.S. Senate. We even said last week on the program how smug and arrogant Christopher wray is, as he is in front of all the senators because he said, oh, you have no idea. Your boy's about to get rated next week. This was all planned.
Judge Who Signed Mar-a-Lago Raid Warrant Linked to Jeffrey Epstein
"From love. Breaking now on the Mike Gallagher show. So the federal magistrate judge who signed off on the search warrant at Mar-a-Lago is a Florida federal magistrate judge sources are telling the New York Post, it was judge Bruce Reinhart, judge Bruce Reinhart, who approved the warrant that enabled the FBI to raid president Trump's home. Well, guess what? Reinhardt was elevated to magistrate judge in 2018 after ten years in private practice. Months after his appointment the Miami Herald reported, he represented several of convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein's clients. Oh my gosh. So get this. The judge who signed off on the search warrant according to the New York Post. Left the local U.S. attorney's office more than a decade ago to represent employees of convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Months after Reinhardt's appointment, the Miami Herald reported, he had represented several of Epstein's employees in connection with the sex trafficking investigation against the financier. According to the paper, according to the Miami Herald, this judge Bruce Reinhart resigned from the South Florida U.S. attorney's office on New Year's Day 2008 and went to work for Epstein's workers the following day.
My Honest Thoughts on Alex Jones
"Alex Jones has been in the news recently. Alex Jones is the founder of InfoWars. He has been smeared by every possible outlet imaginable as being an unfounded conspiracy theorist. Now let me tell you the first exposure I had to Alex Jones. When I was in third or fourth grade, there were these YouTube videos that would be circulating of Alex Jones sneaking into globalist confabs. Remember these videos, Connor, we'd be going up. You're globalist. It was like, wow. Who is this guy? And he had, he had all sorts of, let's say, energy and commitment to exposing what was happening around the world. And so look, Alex, I don't know him personally. I've met him once. He was actually super sweet when I met him. He's not right, a lot of the time. He's also not wrong a lot of the time. Sometimes he allows his passion to carry him into a direction that I think he regrets, but let's be very honest, and this is the one thing I think that people get deeply wrong about Alex Jones. Is that Alex Jones was totally right about Jeffrey Epstein and everyone tried to smear him for it. He just was. He was the only person that was talking about Jeffrey Epstein. He was the only person that was talking about the Lolita express, and now that's all just kind of fact that has now been memory hold. And so look, Alex, you never know what you're gonna get. But he's also an entertainer. You must understand that. Part of his whole shtick is to make it fun and to push boundaries. If there was someone said something to me from Europe and you know what they said, they said, Alex Jones is a uniquely American figure. So what do you mean by that? They said, without a First Amendment, you don't get anyone anywhere close to Alex Jones. I found that to be really interesting. Is that it comes with the bombast that comes with the bravado, but also it comes at sometimes at a deep revelation of truth.
The Top Nightmare Fuel From the Biden iCloud 'Leak'
"I just wanted to just quickly wrap up in a bow that Hunter Biden story So there's some reporting that someone leaked out at the investigation in a Hunter Biden's at a critical stage The reporter reporters fantastic well sourced I have no doubt that that was said there I just don't know what critical means I think they're going to want to make this thing go away and make this thing go away fast Why Well if you read me a Catholic reporting a town hall she puts together something really interesting about the Hunter Biden iCloud information that was recently uncovered Remember Hunter Biden had a contact in his iCloud account called peto Pete peto PED O You all know what that refers to Well cavell writes it's really peculiar that he had this on his iPad The Epstein esque moniker pitot Peter She knows in the lead up to the 2020 election The national pulse first reported that Joe Biden Joe went by the email pseudo and Pete Henderson and communications with hunter Refers to a Jack Ryan character She notes America's favorite hair sniffing septuagenarian who kisses his grandchild like Tom Brady is a top suspect They have to roll he's already earned the perverted nickname creepy uncle Joe Folks of any of this I just having experience having been a federal agent that could tell you right now I don't think this thing is gonna go anywhere I hope it does but I think if it is at this critical juncture that will offer him a plea deal they may have to indict on some low level charge and you'll never hear about any of this stuff again Let me tell you something I hope I'm wrong I'm obviously speculating I can predict the future But given what happened in the spy gay case where Trump was spied on and almost nothing came of it at all And still to this day we're waiting for action I'm not optimistic at all
Ghislaine Maxwell Gets 20 Years
"Let's talk about a creepy pedophile who absolutely got caught red handed and will now do the time. Nearly 6 months after Ghislaine Maxwell was found guilty of 5 charges, including sex trafficking in a minor. It was time to return to court and discuss some sentencing. And Ghislaine is now going to be sentenced for 20 years for her role in the Jeffrey Epstein bullshit. Last week, it was said that the 60 year old Maxwell and her legal team were filing documents saying there was unfair for delaying to serve as sentence that should have been reserved for Jeffrey Epstein. You know, had he not been found on a live in his jail cell back in 2019. They said, look, how about 51 and 63 months or less than 6 years? And I think people got tired of delaying constantly saying I was just following orders that kind of shit. Prosecutors don't like that schtick. They were looking for a sentence of between 30 and 55 years, but look, she got 20. And she put out a statement to you all the victims. I'm sorry for the pain that you experienced. It is my sincerest wish to all those in the courtroom and to all those outside this courtroom that this day brings a terrible chapter to the end to an end. And to those of you who spoke here today and those of you who did not may this day help you travel from darkness into the light. Yet she continues to protect the rapists. What did they do for her in the end? Nothing. Why didn't she talk? She look, she needs to sing before she gets suicide. She's screwed, either way, so might as well bring the predatory men down with her. I mean, there's no way she didn't keep tapes and lots of receipts stashed someplace in one of the safe houses around the world. I know I'm gonna get to that eventually.

"epstein" Discussed on 10% Happier with Dan Harris
"Dan Harris. Hello, party people at the beginning of a new year, many of us want little hacks for getting happier and healthier. You are not going to get that in this episode, however. My guest today argues that the best route to getting unstuck is to first get familiar and cozy with and even laugh at, your own ugliness. He doesn't pretend that this is easy. He simply argues it is necessary. Doctor Mark Epstein is one of the most important figures in my own personal development back in 2009, I believe when I was a super skeptical, although meditation curious TV news anchor, I read a few of mark's excellent books about the overlap between psychology and Buddhism actually my wife gave me those books and turned me on to mark. I then called markup and asked him if he would have a drink with me and we have been friends ever since. Mark has written many, many books. I've read all of them. They're all excellent, but perhaps my favorite is his new one, which is called the zen of therapy. In it, he put you in his chair in his mind as he does therapy using his mix of psychiatric training and decades of studying and practicing Buddhism. In this conversation we talk about the immense value of developing a clear and warm relationship to your own dysfunction. We talk about anger, how much people can actually change, how Buddhism has influenced mark's practice as a psychotherapist. And we talk about what was an extremely important formative relationship for Mark with the legendary spiritual teacher and ex academic rom dass who wrote the seminal book, be here now and died a few years ago. One little note here, this conversation was actually recorded live as part of an online benefit for the New York insight meditation center and the Cambridge insight meditation center to great institutions both worth checking out and supporting. Before we dive in, it's a big news about a development in the TPH world. We are launching a new podcast. We've actually launched it already. One of the most intense important and astonishingly difficult things that has ever happened in my life is having a child. I think this is true for many of us who have kids parenting can be one of if not the most transformative events of a lifetime. And while there are all sorts of resources out there for helping you do a better job as a parent, there aren't many shows about how to take care of yourself as a parent. We here at 10% happier, have now made that show. It's called child proof, and it's available now. It's hosted by an amazing person named yasmin Khan. A recovering news reporter and mom of two young children. On the show, she tackles big questions, such as how do parents take care of ourselves while taking care of our kids? How do we not lose our crap with our children? How do we give ourselves a break? How do we properly mourn the loss of our old lives? How do we not pass on our own various forms of dysfunction to our kids? Child proof is available now for free wherever you listen to your podcasts, including.

<Speech_Male> to Maxwell, <Speech_Male> his longtime <Speech_Male> companion, one <Speech_Male> time girlfriend, <Speech_Male> later employee. <Speech_Male> But <Speech_Male> the core of the prosecution <Speech_Male> was the testimony <Speech_Male> of four women <Speech_Male> who said they were victimized <Speech_Male> by Maxwell <Silence> and Epstein at <Speech_Male> tender ages. <Speech_Male> Three testified <Speech_Male> using first names <Speech_Male> or pseudonyms to <Speech_Male> protect their privacy. <Speech_Male> Jane <Speech_Male> a television actress, <Speech_Male> Kate, a <Speech_Male> former model <Speech_Male> from Great Britain, <Speech_Male> and Carolyn, <Speech_Male> now a mom recovering <Speech_Male> from drug addiction. <Speech_Male> The fourth <Speech_Male> was farmer, <Speech_Male> who chose to use her <Speech_Male> real name after <Speech_Male> being vocal about her <Speech_Male> allegations in recent <Speech_Male> years. <Speech_Male> They echoed one another <Speech_Male> in their descriptions of <Speech_Male> Maxwell's behavior. <Speech_Male> She used charm <Speech_Male> and gifts to gain <Speech_Male> their trust, taking <Speech_Male> an interest in their <Speech_Male> adolescent challenges <Speech_Male> and giving them <Speech_Male> assurances that Epstein <Speech_Male> could use his wealth <Speech_Male> and connections to <Silence> fulfill their dreams. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> They said the script <Speech_Male> would darken when <Speech_Male> Maxwell coaxed <Speech_Male> them into giving massages <Speech_Male> to Epstein <Speech_Male> that turned sexual, <Speech_Male> encounters <Speech_Male> she played <Speech_Male> off as normal, <Speech_Male> after one <Speech_Male> sexual massage, <Speech_Male> Kate, then <Speech_Male> 17, <Speech_Male> said Maxwell <Speech_Male> asked her if <Speech_Male> she'd had fun and <Speech_Male> told her <Silence> you are such a good girl. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Carolyn testified <Speech_Male> that she <Speech_Male> was one of several <Speech_Male> underprivileged teen <Speech_Male> who lived near <Speech_Male> Epstein's Florida <Speech_Male> home in the early <Speech_Male> 2000s, <Speech_Male> and took up an offer <Speech_Male> to give massages <Speech_Male> an exchange for <Speech_Male> $100 bills, <Speech_Male> which prosecutors <Speech_Male> described <Silence> as a pyramid <Speech_Male> of abuse. <Speech_Male> Maxwell <Speech_Male> made all the arrangements, <Speech_Male> Carolyn told the jury, <Speech_Male> even though <Speech_Male> she knew the girl was only <Speech_Male> 14 at the <Speech_Male> time. <Speech_Male> Jane said in 1994, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> when she was only 14, <Speech_Male> she was <Speech_Male> instructed to <Speech_Male> follow Epstein into <Speech_Male> a pool house at the <Speech_Male> Palm Beach estate, <Speech_Male> where he <Silence> masturbated on <Speech_Male> her.

<Speech_Male> directly accused <Speech_Male> Maxwell of participating <Silence> in her abuse. <Speech_Male> Maxwell's <Speech_Male> lawyer <Speech_Male> asked Jane <Speech_Male> why it had taken <Silence> so long to come forward. <Speech_Male> I <Speech_Male> was scared, she <Speech_Male> said, choking back tears. <Speech_Male> I was embarrassed, <Speech_Male> ashamed. <Speech_Male> I didn't <Speech_Male> want anybody to <Silence> know any of this <Speech_Male> about me. <Speech_Male> The last <Speech_Male> to testify, <Speech_Male> farmer described <Speech_Male> how Maxwell <Speech_Male> touched her breasts <Speech_Male> while giving her a massage <Speech_Male> at Epstein's New <Speech_Male> Mexico ranch <Speech_Male> and how Epstein <Speech_Male> unexpectedly crawled <Speech_Male> into bed and pressed <Speech_Male> himself against her. <Speech_Male> Maxwell, <Speech_Male> who turned <Speech_Male> 60 on Christmas, <Speech_Male> vehemently <Speech_Male> denied the charges <Speech_Male> through her lawyers. <Speech_Male> Still, she <Speech_Male> declined to take <Speech_Male> the risk of testifying, <Speech_Male> telling <Speech_Male> the judge, the government

"Banning on the other hand is buddies with them. So he's like oh you're gonna help me sure. Yeah i mean here's a guy who knows. He's being accused of the worst crimes you could imagine. And he lets his banning guy into his house for ten fifteen hours and put himself on tape will possibly incriminating evidence. Why because he trust bannon one hundred percent because they're really good friends and apparently they must have been for a long time to build up that kind of trust and so now bannon who never released any such documentary and years and years to do it. Never turn it over to the police. That is incredible evidence that you withheld from the police. Well that's an interesting question. They're police should ask them about. Hey why don't you withhold evidence about that child sex trafficker we got laid maxwell in jail right now. We can use it as her. Give me the goddamn tapes. Not me give to the cops. Why are the cops are though you believe the law and order and all that stuff. No you're withholding that evidence because you want to help your friend the child molester the child rapist and let's be clear about something okay. It's not bannon's fault. It's the global the fact that he used that excuse as part of his response to ben smith i. It's one talking point one trick pony. What's incredibly frustrating. Is that americans eat it up. All of these people need to do is spew hollow empty talking points about the elites without ever getting very specific about it. It'd be really. Oh yeah it's the elites it's the elites. Okay go on go on. What do you think steve. Bannon is steve. Bannon is like living in a tent on a sidewalk in los angeles anyway. Okay and one less so great. Point is the one major elite that bannon knows working for the chinese government as we speak. Yeah by the way he knows chinese billionaire. That's another elite. That's a good point. But the most famous for his so-called real estate mogul billionaire who became president that would be the definition of elite. And that's the one bannon knows the best right. And if you were planning to spring a trap on these global elite who were buddies with epstein. Well do you have that information. You have it on these folks and you're not telling us guys again if you're right wing or why don't you ask these questions. Hey brother do you have evidence on all these guys. Because you said you got it glow you were working with epstein to expose the global elites. So where's the goddamn evidence theme. Where is it going to expose. And why have you been hiding for year after year after year. Why are you hiding now. Don't get it coordinating. Oh you're always going to get him on table. Looks like i'm helping him. And i'm telling you well. How pathetic is well. I was going to get much later. Many many many years after he's already dead and made after his co-conspirator gets acquitted. When were you going to expose them. Steve what a monstrous liar. All right we gotta take a break but when we come back. It's a little alarming. That a conservative chris.

"A if you had real evidence we're very open to it because we don't like avenue because i don't think he's a remotely progressive and i think he's works for corporate interests but right before an election you're going to put your weight on larry elder who has awful track record. Because you think newsome's wife said two names the union investigate because you hung up immediately. No i'm sorry. But that's just not credible enough. It looks like you're being at a minimum used for a political and electoral races in a way. That's a little disgusting. And i leave you with one. More graphic on this story in his books. Larry elder endorsed pregnancy discrimination. According to a report for media matters suggesting that working mothers aren't dedicated and available for an all hands on deck commitment to work. What a warrior for women's rights. Good job rose. Mcgowan proud of you real proud of you. She said he was the better man. It doesn't look that way. No all right. Let's move on to i don't know maybe rose mcgowan. Think of these people's better men as well who tell a new book titled two famous by michael wolff reports. That steve bannon gave sex offender. Jeffrey epstein hours of media training prior to a sixty minutes interview. That didn't end up happening now. This was written about by ben smith and the new york times I'll give you those details in a second but bannon apparently visited epstein back in two thousand nineteen months before his arrest on charges related to federal sex trafficking. The pair met at epstein's upper east side mansion ahead of a sixty minutes interview that never ended up happening and the pair practiced for the interview with a camera. Now many give you bannon's statement in response to all of this just a second. But i do think it's important to get into the nitty gritty. Give you what the details are bent in is both conducting the interview and coaching epstein. On the little things. Ben smith writes telling him he will come across a stupid if he doesn't look directly into the camera now and then and advising him not to share his racist theories on how black people learn mainly bannon tells epstein. He should stick to his message. Which is that he is not a pedophile. Look into city series story. But look at these. Like viper's nest awful people now look jeff. We're all racist here but it doesn't play well in america so let's stick to not being a pedophile. Even though you're obviously a pedophile. Like just i mean. Do i need to say anything. More in the right looks at that and goes a cia station and child. Sex trafficking is horrible. Be those are my boys. What and what and why do you think. The republicans are constantly charging democrats with child molestation and in participating in these child sex trafficking projection. It's in their head all the time so they go well. We're doing it. We assume they must be doing so. Hey ban his buddies with jeffrey epstein and goes it helps them do media manipulation like he did for trump and so he thinks the world having you know doing whatever you're doing with kids i guess the democrats will be doing to. Let's blame people. They come luca here showed him the picture. there's another guy who seemed to be giving jeffrey epstein advice and it was the guy that benny used to work for. Oh look at that hanging out with obscene all the time by the way that's gives land maxwell who is now in prison Who helped jeffrey seen Procure the women or the children actually for his crimes and donald trump wished her well twice after she'd been arrested after she had been arrested.

That prosecutors are going to continue this investigation beyond a jeffrey obscene and galen maxwell they believe that there were a lot of other people that were involved in particularly men who were engaging in sex with minors and they believe that authorities should go after everyone who helped epstein. And you know. I think that there there is some concern that authorities are going to charge. You know possibly convict galen maxwell and then not go any further with the case so There are some victims out there that are pressuring prosecutors to continue their investigation.

In fact he was here on a business trip. A new clinical trial. He'd invited benita along but she almost didn't make it for months after the surgery. I'm back and forth to the doctor constantly and they get rid of the infection. He'd invited benito long but she almost didn't make it just a few weeks earlier should had surgery and gotten an infection but after some antibiotics things seem to be getting better besides she really wanted to see moscow and then the infection cleared off enough that my doctor said you're fine.

Let's change gears as you know. I live here in south florida and it was about. I wanna say two years ago. That the miami herald started running this series of articles written by our guest julie k. Brown about jeffrey epstein and Now julie brown is out with a book. Also called perversion of justice The jeffrey epstein story julie brown. Thank you so much for joining us today. It's a pleasure to meet you. Thanks for having me. Oh it's my me okay. I hear you just fine. I hear you fine. Yeah you know first of all. Thank you for writing this. This is the weirdest story in that. It almost seems it happened in plain sight. I mean we knew that he was a bad guy. We knew that there were cases out there but it seemed like nobody in the media had picked up the ball and run with it until you. Do you know why well it had been written about over the years. It's just. I think that a lot of people have number one forgot about it and number two the fact it epstein was able to just pick up with his life and go about you know the same kind of jet-setting than he did before a just boggled my mind so i felt that it needed to be looked at from different vantage point. Quaint and Over the years there was a lot of new information that had been buried in in Either a court documents or even had been sealed. I judges over the years and so effort was to sorta take a whole new. Look at this story from the very beginning. So so when when you really got a hold of it. Jeffrey epstein had already served. I hate to call it a sentence. This sent the sweetheart deal that he was inexplicably. Given by alex cost. Who at the time was the us attorney in south florida That basically get put gave him a very short jail term but allowed him to leave every day at. I believe a car and driver pick them up and take him to an office where he spent twelve hours of each day. Allowed to do whatever you want. Visitors conduct business and then he went back and slept in the jail. This doesn't sound like anybody that i know especially a convicted rapist. Any kind of sentence i've ever heard of before. Well a sad part about this whole thing was that he was a convicted rapist because he got out of the crime essentially the prosecutors. Oath i state prosecutors in palm beach and then the federal prosecutors a treated these victims is if they were prostitutes even though they were thirteen fourteen years old. And because of that they minimized the scope of epstein crimes. I calling it. You know it's just a simple prostitution case. As opposed to pointing out by the way there were thirty four girls and this was a whole recruiting operation in which he used a fraud and coercion to get these girls to the place where they were molested. He didn't offer them money for Sacks he offered the money to give him assange and when you're thirteen fourteen years old it in their minds. They had no idea what many what was going to happen at the founding so you came to the story really after it was done after his sentence was over. What made you decide to go back and examine it. Well everything. I was a sort of looking at doing a new project Thought i would do it on sex trafficking in florida and every time. I did some research on jeffrey.

He said sure so. He filled up of gas. And i saw in his store that he sold liquor and i said is there any way i could buy a bottle of whiskey from you in some seven up and some milk now remember burying joe at gambled away all their money in lake tahoe but it also taken junior from his hotel room on the pretense that this was a robbery which meant junior handed over his wallet which contain a single hundred dollar bill so to repay this poor guy who berry just dragged out of bed and into the snow. I gave him franks dollar village. I can't change all the money's locked up so all s- keep the change now remember. That's one hundred dollar bill in nineteen sixty three which means that for a tank of gas a bottle of whisky. Some seven up and some milk. The gas station owner had pocketed more than eight hundred bucks in today's money. So barry figured the guy would mind if you grab just one more thing so by another bottle of booze and that'll take care of her trip home and he said okay fair enough demand. Tuck the hundred in his pocket and he went back to bed completely unaware that he just aided and abetted a federal crime very passed around the whiskey and seven up and he hit the road.

Have mercy from wolfman jack. That's my story and i'm sticking it anyway. Wolfman jack changed the energy in that car. Joe took a break from dabbing. The blood oozing from his head wound took a few pools of whiskey. Pass the bottle back to junior. Who was already buzzed from the sleeping pills. Buried fed them back at the hotel to hear berry talent. They were having a blast. We were cracking jokes in my car and we were all drinking as much fun as berry says they were having. I suspect his passengers might have been a little more anxious than he realized. Joe is probably wondering when barry was going to ask him to climb back in the trunk runoff into the blizzard. Again and as cool as junior was playing things he must have been at least a little worried that these guys were kill him. I mean whatever they were up they sure didn't seem like experts. Whatever each man's motivation fund fear of frostbite as they white knuckled it down. Those snowy mountain passes on some level berry knew that they were in a heap of danger with every hairpin turn but in his mind. There was a silver lining. at least they weren't strangers anymore. That was like we were three guys on a road trip but eventually the booze ran out and the party. Die down junior started. Ask him when. I was going to let them out and i said well. I can't let you out here you freeze to death so when we get down to sacramento. We'll let you out near the airport.

"Investigators. The epsteins essentially hired the his lawyers were were ruthless and relentless in their pursuit of you know making sure did the girls and authorities knew that he was You know that he wasn't going to be prosecuted for these crimes. All right so you look carefully. Into how this lenient plea deal occurred and this was a long period of time because there was not just the local prosecutor. The fbi became involved. The you know the us attorney's office the federal prosecutors and this large team of experienced and aggressive lawyers on epstein behalf got information was that in-between the settlement in two thousand eight and the time he started looking into it there was civil litigation and a lot of the victims sued epstein that gave you some insight into exactly how the negotiations over. This plea deal occurred right. What what did you find out. There was still an open case. Oddly enough that had been open since two thousand eight so that meant that this civil case was open for ten years and it was still being litigated. And what was interesting about this case this. This case was not filed against jeffrey epstein was fought against the us government and it was five point attorney by the name of brad edwards who was representing one of the victims. I ultimately interviewed. Courtney wild who who essentially was suing the government from for doing this plea deal in the first place. They claimed it was illegally done because violated The crime victims rights act which gives victims federal law which gives victim certain rights and among those rights with the right to be consulted and to be informed about plea deals. And of course this was done. The plea deal was done in secret They went to great lengths to seal it so that nobody could see it and So at worst filed a federal lawsuit against the us government alleging that the steel was illegal because it violated the crime victims rights act right and so it was a result of that he got a hold of communications among the prosecutors emails between them and the defense attorneys and a lot of this eventually got a look at. What were some of the most disturbing things that you learned about the way this went down. I think probably the most disturbing was that they continued after the deal was already done. Obscene went right to jail. And i think what was really disturbing about it. Was that even after this happened. The federal government the prosecutors continued in a way to work with epstein against bread edwards the attorney representing the victims and and trying to make all these legal arguments that number one. These were really victims. They shouldn't have been categorized as such because they never actually brought charges against him so they were trying to use all kinds of legal loopholes in order to justify what they did in to me. That was pretty startling. See the sort of epstein the prosecutors were on one side and the you know the victims and their attorney were on the other side when epstein team of lawyers were working on this case..

Many many mr eastman had been smart enough or scared enough to stay away from the body. The crime scene was intact untouched. The snow surrounding the body was proof of that. Only one set of tracks led from the woods to the woodpile. Tommy had walked there alone. He picked vantage point from which he could see his front door where he could watch as the corner of removed his mother's body from the house.

"Happens. So we would debit we were on his private island, which of course everything is legal. So nothing I'm saying here was illegal or on his private island, which was under the rule of Jeff Epstein law and we with his masseuse. Oh either either taught eighth-grade or was in eighth grade, I don't remember the first part of what Jeff said, but she either taught eighth-grade which I think is the cage or she probably yeah, I mean it would make sense. She seemed she seemed mature, but she like I said taught eighth-grade possibly in eighth grade. I didn't hear the first part of what Jeff said, he would double D manga of course and he's at the front and he's at the you know the top and I'm going to town on her, you know lady parts and I'm Jeff. You know pulled out unexpectedly and got some on me. And so I took two steps back. Out of the young lady and like shook my hands to get the jff seen the the the super-powered semen off of me. I was like waving it off. So it was long as you can see in the video. That's what it was to address that back. And then I had to shake the Epstein juices off of me and we had a good laugh about it and we went back to doing what we were doing, but it was dead and you know, then we were drinking that night, but I wasn't drink I was having a Diet Coke he was drinking and you know we with They weigh the cheerleading coaches or or 6th grade cheerleaders. Probably probably a cheerleading coach. I'm assuming probably probably the cheerleading coach but who knows I'm assuming I get its way whenever you talk about Jeffrey Epstein you get so emotional. I feel horrible. It's well, it's well, you know, we'll go back on the record in a second but it was stuff because you know that night we were parting with the way they didn't couches. Okay, and they were you know, they were like me they didn't want to drink alcohol. They were all drinking juice boxes off and coaches, you know, you get tired and they have a live setting an example for their for their for their their cheerleaders.

"Not a corner but something like corner. Anyway, Michael Baton and sixty minutes questioned if Epstein who is almost six feet tall and weighed one, hundred, eighty, five pounds could have been able to hang himself from the bunk. Because a former in May had described the prison sheets as like paper level they weren't very strong. And he doubted that Epstein's body would have been supported by the that she you know. Yeah okay. Also, he sounds like six feet. Tall is tall and I can't imagine a prison bunk bed would be tall enough right. Yeah. Okay I'm tracking with this one. Then to go along with sketch number to bat an also questioned why Epstein didn't use other materials available in cell as a ligature such as wires in tubing from a sleep apnea machine which were stronger and longer Okay. That is another weird question. Definitely sketch number three. Photos taken after the death also show bottles and Medicine Standing Upright on the top bunk. So the theory behind this or the idea by this is at this chunk of a man was hanging himself off of this ricky all bunk. Those things would have been knocked over. There's no doubt. I see what you're saying. You know yet how are they still standing definitely okay. That's questionable. Yeah. Sketch number four, my friend. His injuries were more consistent with that of a homicidal strangulation, not a suicide and what I mean by this is he had to fractures on either side of his larynx and he had a fracture on his left high oy bone just above the Adam's apple with which is consistent with strangulation from behind. Yes I mean like. I've ever heard about someone being strangled strangled. The highway bone is almost always broken. Exactly. Exactly do okay. This is getting crazy gang sketchy Ernst catchier. Yes. Onto sketch number five, the neck wound was in the center of Epstein's neck, not under his manuals as an atypical hanging. This is more common when a victim is strangled by a wire or a cord that an also said that the wound was much thinner than the Strip of bedsheet and although there was blood on epsteins neck, it was absent on the bedsheet ligature. ooh. Okay. Okay. This is also freaky right Yeah, ing on his neck, but it wasn't on the bed sheets right and there's no no logical reason for that. Now, even I still don't understand like how no blood gone it. So say he was strangled before somebody put the bedsheet on him. How was there? No blood on the bed she? After Right. Unless someone took the bedsheet with them. Exactly. Yeah okay. Sketch number six. According to the Autopsy Files Epstein also had contusions on both of his wrists and abrasion on his left forearm and deep muscle hemorrhaging on his left deltoid or shoulder and his brother mark later suggested that he was probably handcuffed and struggled who okay. Yeah. That would be consistent. Yeah. Handcuffs on behind his back or something. Which makes you question than? Was it an authority figure like a police person or you know one of the jail guards because who else would have handcuffs in the prison? Okay, we're getting to the last two here. Okay sketch number seven. Epstein also had emerges in his eyes, which apparently is not unheard of in hangings, but it's more common in strangulations and that one might be stretching a little bit but. Still no because I mean I was thinking to myself like it's really like your. Naturally doesn't WanNa be strangled so. Like when you hang yourself typically you don't have footing so your body can fight, but you're still going be you know die? Strangulation like you're GonNa, you're gonNA work against that. So I'm feeling like there's no way he hung himself in this space and that he definitely had to be strangled. I. Agree with you and my my whole thing is. There's no way he can strangle himself off of a bunk bed. I mean he sick Oh, exactly. Exactly and like I say your body naturally is GonNa fight that so. I think would be really difficult especially to do without making a commotion. And then how could he have not made a commotion if he was if his neck had three fractures in it? Exactly. Does getting sketch here you get in sketching. So my last sketch sketch number eight. Bat In also pointed out the epsteins lower legs lacked levity. Is for those who don't know or who is not a freak. It's when a person dies their blood settles where like how they're naturally fallen. So if you die on your back, you're gonNA have like bruising on your back 'cause your blood just kind of. Goes to the bottles. Yeah. Gravity takes your blood down. Right after liberty is. He didn't have any in his lower legs, which suggests that he did not die in an upright position. So they're so he's saying basically there's no way Epstein died kneeling like he was found exactly. Girl. I can definitely go down this rabbit hole all day I wanna see pictures. I know unfortunately there's no pictures. No. Okay Yeah Dang it so That's the theory. Of Him not killing himself. Why people think that that's a big deal well. First. Let's start with. He has a ton of famous and influential friends. And, he you know had he was being arrested for sex trafficking. Right. Let's put two and two together here. Wore scared that he was going to sing like a canary about these other famous friends. Who may have partaken in his extracurricular activities? So This could ruin people's careers I mean yeah. If word got out. Yeah. Let me just. Name down the four big names in this came. Okay. We've. got. Donald trump okay. Bill Clinton. Okay Prince Andrew who is Queen Elizabeth's second son. ooh Okay. So a big deal. Yeah, and then we've got Les Wexner. Who is the CEO of L. Brands and the owner of Victoria's secret? Oh so also big deal those are very famous people. Yeah. And there's a ton of others like Elon Musk and. All kinds? Okay. Yeah just goes.
"epstein" Discussed on The Business of Sports With Andrew Brandt
"David epstein is the author of the bestselling selling book range he was the other is the author of the previously bestselling book the sports gene both those books i ran ously read so much to glean seen from them and i thought i'd talked to david about sort of nature versus nurture and match play in terms of careers and what you're gonna do not elaine sports but otherwise is kind of a different view about two concepts of grit and ten thousand hours in specialization versus breath. You're going to hear all about it a wide ranging rollicking in very personal interview with david epstein coming up. I ran to the week and yes hopefully hopefully this is the last time we're talking about. Tony brown as we sit here today on a tuesday afternoon. It appears that he has practiced with the raiders in a certified the helmet so helmet gate maybe over. We may have heard the last of drama coming out of the raiders. I've been critical brown. He's blocked me on twitter. I've heard from other people posting. Maybe i'm too critical. I guess what my point always about is really sort of looking at the perspective. I have having been an agent and having having been a team person and really this is kind of on the raiders as much as i talk about brown really you know they had to know and if they didn't it's naive david them that brown would take more tolerance than other players and head to accept it with the great talent that he brings. There's no doubting what assimilating employer is when exciting player hell talent isn't always say greater talent equals greater tolerance. Now i just this little wrens directed mike amac because what i heard him with frustration in that forty second clip this week sayings all in or al out you know kind of feeling like it had been enough off the tolerance had run out and i guess the question to me is <unk> is always kind. Of what did you expect. It's like when i think about people criticizing the current president and i criticize him as well but the question is what did you expect. People don't change their stripes. The people are who they are. The steelers obviously had some issues of tolerance with brown but kept it under wraps or kept a good job of managing it for many years. It's naive to think the raiders did know that now. The breeders may have said okay. We'll take it for a while with feet in the helmet but it's sort of reached a breaking point as you saw from mike mayock act so i guess the the point. Is you know each team has no. It's players. These are large locker rooms. This is not basketball. This is not small group group of people and i always say this to think that locker rooms are coon by is very naive and football position groups that kind of stick to each other large variances in size in color in backgrounds in interest whether it be music or otherwise in this locker room so it's gonna be extremely different for everyone to get along in brown comes with some baggage. I don't think anybody's not agreeing with that but again again. Maybe mayo can grew grew gruden but mac could only hold it in so long but as we sit here today rant is over because it just seems seems like antonio brown has come into the fold of the oakland raiders practice with them and this will be featured on hard knocks. You would think so. He's back back <hes> we'll see if this is the end of drama round antonio brown at least get into games and whether he has problems with quarterback whatever it may be but it will be interesting to watch so antonio brown in the fold at least temporarily and we see what's going on with with with brown he's back with him it that certified and feed getting better from the <hes> maceration done by cryotherapy by the way i did craft therapy today yes for socks shoes to get better in all right before we get to our guests which is a special guest of david epstein. Let's hear from the athletic politic the athletic as you may.
