There was a wealthy man in Palm Beach who was offering young girls away to make money. That man was Jeffrey Epstein, and he had set up a system designed to bring him underage girls. Local police and the federal government would investigate by their account, find dozens of victims. Epstein would become one of the world's most infamous predators, a man who could have faced decades in prison but served just 13 months in his own wing of a county jail.

"She lost her bid in court to keep her testimony sealed. A court ruled Monday that the four hundred and eighteen page deposition for April of two, thousand, sixteen would remain. Unsealed that she had been appealing this ruling by a lower court and as it turns out, they said, sorry, you don't need this to preserve your presumption of innocence. The US District Judge Loretta Preska indicated that many people could be implicated by the public release of these documents. The lawyer added some of the information would be life changing for many of the people involved some of the things. I read said that this includes thousands of names of people that are involved so. I know you've been following this pretty closely time. What do you think we'll find out some unsealed testimony. Well, I can tell you based off of when we did our special about this scandal right after he died. The and I do think he's dead do I Anyway won't get into that. We actually. Got A, hold of his black book right and we were able to come through and it was anybody who was anybody including Donald trump including the trunk kids. They were all included in all of this thing. So? I. Can only imagine what the testimony. When you talk about hobnobbing with the most powerful of the powerful in the world. Jeffrey, Epstein was part of that delay was part of that. If you take the ranch New Mexico, the Jeffrey Epstein had for his eugenics research and he wanted to save his head wanted to save his penis he wanted to be able to bring. he wanted cryogenically freeze these things. He wanted to be able to impregnate these virgin teenagers in order to create a whole generation and in a world of Epstein's himself. That ranch was surrounded by the the most powerful political family that handed out political positions like airlines in the state of new. Mexico. You couldn't get the Jeffrey Epstein's ranch unless you flew over or drove through their ranch to get there he completely isolated. So when you look at a guy who had that kind of power who is not really a smart guy? He's a middle school math teacher and he wasn't good at that. This guy had the ability to influence so many people and people wanted to be close to him for very mysterious reasons. I'm telling you the the crowd he drew together. Very very ECLECTIC, very, very interesting and very, very large. It's been interesting to me how many people said Nope never met the guy and then we find out that. He's had meetings with Bill Gates and he's mean with lots of people who said, no never never had any dealings with them. Maybe. Once, and then it turns out that they had. He had a whole. He had programs named after him at Harvard and MIT. A guy who was a terrible middle school math teacher that they had to fire This was a guy who knew how to spread his influence. About the money, he wasn't as rich as everybody makes him out to be he was rich enough, but it was about influence because these people wanted. I have some really weird theories Hillary, and we don't have time to get into them here but I got some really weird theories about how these billionaires operate in on up because they really do think that they're gods and they play gods and and. I would love to see this testimony. That she she's actually going to survive in order to see a trial I don't know I think she's probably in fear for her life. I wouldn't want to be in her shoes I. Don't think I mean no one out there in their right mind Glenn. Glenn Beck was trying to say he was trying to accuse me of being a conspiracy theorist on Jeffrey. Epstein. The more we talked he goes okay I. See your point and I'm like, how is it? I'm convincing. Glenn Beck. Conspiracy. But we do have some good news regarding human trafficking. The Department of Homeland Security announced Tuesday, the opening of its new center for countering human trafficking based in Washington DC, it's been operational since last month, it's led by officials from us, immigration and Customs. Enforcement. However. Donald, trump junior shared a post saying that members of the media had no questions during a briefing on the centers launch. He said this is a disgrace he said you know. Real Donald Trump. He's the first American politician to address the scourge of a human trafficking to it, and no one has any interest in covering it I. Guess they're too busy running cover for Hollywood. So I mean, this is a big deal to be the very first president said the centers going to build on the agency's victims? I approach which balances, victim, identification, rescue and support with prevention investigation prosecution of traffickers. This is a really big deal and they had that press conference and they just anyone have any questions and it was just crickets. So embarrassing the so all of the all of the seats Just. Watching this video, not telling all the seats are spaced out even all the seats aren't filled. So some of them, just some of the members mu decided not to even go for the ones that set there. Literally, it looked like it was the intern that was made to go and they didn't say a word it was embarrassing the guy was like now open for questions nothing he's gave him more time like two different times nothing I tell you what the Obama Administration would have done this they would have rolled out celebrities would have been there. Tons of media would have just you know just get all kinds of adulation in the just clapping him up. Listen alano probably would have been there like, yeah. Right on be two should be all over this. They should be like like this is kind of what they're about really this little part of it. There's more slaves now than there were during the sleep sleep period. I tell you what the reason why circling back to Epstein the reason that you have you know Cunanan thing right now stuff like that the reason you have stuff like this because we all know what's happening like with with with like Epstein, the media would not report on it. They don't WanNA touch it. It was considered too damaging. They were too scared to talk about it when you don't expose these things then you get stuff like Cunanan, it goes back to the center you create the thing that you're scared of. That's what they did now. They have. Cunanan, that they're trying to make that a huge deal. It's not, but they're trying to make a huge deal, but you wouldn't even had it. If you just want reported things like this out in the open just said look, this is what's going on. But now you've got all of this fallout but this is just it's just so embarrassing I tell if they would have had a Russia angle, then they would have been all over it. That's probably what they're like how can we spin Russia into this? No. Okay. Let's just not it's not. A massive war against the next generation from abortion to human trafficking there is a lot of getting swept away swept under the rug. The idea that Jeffrey Epstein was the only guy in America who was doing that kind of thing who had that kind of clout and yet had that much influence over people and I know people say they say Well Donald trump new Jeffrey. Epstein Yeah. Kicked him out of mar-a-lago because he and Roger Stone got invited over to a party and he got there and they looked around and. Looked at Roger Stone Roger Stone told me this to my face. He said, we gotTA GET OUTTA here. Donald Trump said this and left, and after that subsequently he kicked him out of Moraga It's bad stuff that's going on out there and the stuff that's getting swept under the rug. I don't know who they're hiding from I. Don't know if it's billionaires I. Don't know if it's politicians I don't know if it's Hollywood or all the above, but it's bad neutering reminds me remember Heidi Fleiss back in the day Hollywood Madam Reminds me that she still has not given up the black book never I remember who's dating. Or something. It was some outlet just like deal with her and wrote a big long story and she said she was going to reveal names but she reneged at the last minute but I remember everyone was. Just trying to figure out who might be book we might find out with this Gillan Maxwell thing. That's true. All those names. It's the same anticipation that I can remember from back then. But at the same anticipation and we might actually see something come who else will be on that. Heidi Fleiss state alive this long. Right. All right. So we've got more to come but I wanNA thank our sponsor Boll and branch what do? Of Americans and three former US presidents have in common.

What is happening with the Uighurs in China?
"In China's northwestern province of Xinjiang the government has locked up more than a million workers a Muslim minority in a vast gulag. The whole province is a surveillance state within a surveillance state. The government claims it's de radicalizing population prone to separatism. People in Xinjiang in your happy life people call for older to restored each in. China of course, is strongly opposed to any torture and prosecutor and discrimination of any avenue. Good people. This is not the case in. Child. The reality is that it's carrying out crimes against humanity. We're going to take a look at how the repression is tearing families apart and preventing leaguers from even having families. We'll speak. With. googlers forced always to look over their shoulders. And will find deeper complexity in the party's ethnic repression on a visit to a tourist town in south western China. Own. The government is persecuting not only adults but hundreds of thousands of children to. Reporting by the Economist has unearthed government documents that show not de Radicalization. It's a campaign to crush the weaker. Islam. Faith to erase their cultural identity to chip away in their minds and in their bloodlines at what makes them weavers. It's difficult to get firsthand accounts of what's happening. Clearly the weaker inching John are unable to speak. But some brave souls have managed to escape and to tell their story. Our China Affairs at its her Gotti Epstein has been speaking to one of them. Presume Daoud and her three children, Fridays? We're probably the most terrifying day of the week. That was the day when officials would question students and schools in. The interrogators were looking for clues about the students lives at home. They wanted to know whether parents prayed or used Islamic greetings or talked to the children about the Prophet Muhammad. If the answers were in satisfactory they could result in a family member being sent to what they call a vocational training centre. or The camps in Xinjiang New Gulag. One Bologna. Bake. As. Miss Dogwood told me her children would be nervous that they would answer. Wrong. And get her sent back to the camps where she spent two months in two thousand eighteen. Kept. A. Terrible. saw. The Donald Families Experience in this regard is is quite common and Chin John. Absolutely. People Focus when talking about the workers on the detention camps but really Xinjiang is an open air prison. For twelve million dollars, their surveillance both low tech and high tech Miss. Dodd Dawood told me of an APP installed on her phone and where afterwards when she. Used traditional Islamic greeting on the phone. She was called minutes later by her. Local police asked her why she did that. Victim get little bug Emerson S Allama. amendment. Get. Across the region, families will be appointed to write and read articles praising Seton King. Others might have to write and read hands to ethnic harmony and some have to praise other policies that the party is imposing on them including the placement of quote unquote Han relatives in their homes and given that much of this has has come out now in how do officials in an Giang justify that that level of surveillance Chinese officials say that they are doing this in the interests of the weaker pupil they say that they are fighting the three evils of terrorism extremism and separatism. They say, they are making Xinjiang's safer and they say they're making the weaker pupil happier. But in reality, the experience of workers in the camps and even outside the camps is one not of training for the workforce but of indoctrination of trying to strip them of their relief, zero city or of any sort of cultural practices which stripe them as efforts to be distinct and separate from China. So what happens to those who were deemed to broken these many tiny rules? Well, leaguers like Ms Dour are placed in the camps Kerr offenses was for. From Pakistan, where her husband is from visiting. Pakistan. A number of years earlier. Accepting money from a foreigner who has a family friend who lived in China and securing an American visa these are all things that police asked her about a four sending her straight off to a detention camp but she's apparent. I mean what happens to the children of Leaguers who are who are detained? Well, this is the problem that the Communist Party itself is having to face up to because they are struggling to deal with the children of the parents of detained in local work documents that we obtained the officials us a chilling tra- -nology to refer to children whose parents are being held by the state. They're called Don Kuhn or single hardship or swung double hardship depending on whether one or both parents. Has Been sent away and what the documents also reveals that they're struggling to keep pace. They want to place these children in boarding schools basically, and so they have spent a tremendous amount of money expanding boarding facilities at schools across sin John just in the last couple of years, and what are these schools like is not like kids version of the Gulag you described for adult that's not too far off I. mean. These schools many of them have high security fencing and that's even true of free kindergartens and they are places where the kids are kept. These are cited even in state propaganda sort of celebrated. But those kids are as young as months old the propaganda describes as being well fed well, cared for happy learning the national language. Chinese. The point of this propagandist to convey the notion that they are helping the. Wiegert children but obviously, the effect is much different. We've seen testimonies from Chinese teachers who volunteer work in these areas that described children in pretty bleak conditions and in terrible emotional states. But what do you mean by diluting the culture on the surface of it? This just looks like oppression does right and suppression, but it's pressure that's really designed to reduce the influence of the weaker people and even their numbers. Their policies supporting confirming ethic marriage trying to encourage weaker girls when the girl enough to marry Han men and their rewards associated with that those included job of flat or even keeping family members out of camp. And then there are other ways that they're literally trying to reduce the growth at least of the wieger population China enforces limits on families is in John. So women are being fitted with you at a much higher rate than the rest of China. Women with three children, which is the limit in rural. Xinjiang. are subjected to sterilization or a great risk of that. Ms Dawood yourself says, she was subjected to sterilization two thousand eighteen. The most abilities maintenance, this hustle bonetti based. So what do you think is going on here? Any seems the goal for the Chinese authorities is more than simply to to break the spirits of the weaker. I would say the situation meets every category of crimes against humanity literally has been defined by the Rome Statute International Criminal, court have forcible transfer population. You have imprisonment the prosecution against the identifiable group have the enforced disappearance of persons. It's a term that's codified international law and I think it's pretty clear and given that how should the world respond what is to be done about this? The most important thing is that governments need act they should offer asylum seekers. Should sanction officials in Xinjiang that are responsible issue banned goods made with forced labor I most important governments should speak up I think the right moment to call for action. You could see maybe China's cloud cracking a little under the weight of these horrific revelations. There are more people standing up to China and fewer standing with him today. There is a sign of hope for human rights and there is a sign of hope for the oppressed we were people in China.

Epstein has his arm around a woman pulling her head toward hiss so that his smirking lips Grazer Temple Epstein is tan and relaxed and he looks like he doesn't have a care in the world on that same day, 1200 Miles south. A 14 year old girl in Palm Beach, Florida gives a statement to the police that will launch an investigation. But maybe Epstein is right. Not to be worried. Nobody cared what these women had to say Their insights were ignored as the feds and then the state made this case go away. Mr Epstein should have been looking at potential sentence. 360 years at a minimum. That's not what happened because there was a power dynamic here wasn't their recent charges against Jeffrey Epstein have brought down a Cabinet member and tarnished the reputations of billionaires and elite universities.

Demi Lovato and Former Fiance Max Ehrich’s Messy Split: Everything We Know
"That's what we gotta talk about This Demi Llevado break up again because she's just released a song, which means we can't stop talking about it. This is the culling and Bradley Show my talk 1071 streaming live at my talk one of 71 dot com Everything entertainment Colleen Lindstrom Bradley trainer, Um Yeah. Demi Lovato. And Max. Marriage. Yeah, Infact, this publication ship has gone all sorts of directions, but it's provided all sorts of opportunity to write like In the midst of all the crazy Demi's gotten some additional traction for. Oh, look, a new single that just came out, but the price he's paying as a result. I don't know it seems a little too high as far as I'm concerned, because this Max Ehrich character has gotten really scare itch. Scary, really creepy tacular because when you start to reference Jeffrey Epstein to make a point You've kind of lost the room. So for those of you who don't remember Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich were engaged, They fell really fast if you believe the tabloid trash I fell really fast, really hard over the quarantine, like, Oh, we're spending all our time together. I don't know. Maybe that's true, but whatever they got engaged And then we heard that there was a break up through a tabloid. But then we heard from Max Ehrich over the weekend that like he didn't know his relationship that ended he posted To Instagram, saying he learned through a tabloid. And then he weirdly implied that this was a bad idea for Llevado to end their relationship because he was filming a movie about here about being a pastor. And he's a Christian. And all that. Remember that? Yeah, that was really kind of strange, right? I mean so much over the streams. It's hard to tease out. What strange is stranger than the other strange in by the way, she has kept radio silent. For the most part, she started speaking through surrogates to tabloids as well, but In the days since marriage has continued to post to instagram, making a variety of claims about how they hadn't officially ended. In fact, he said, that I think that was our last conversation was like He says. They didn't officially end anything. But it's like dude. Let it go. There are headlines. Yeah, I mean, it's like she wants you to go by. There's no unfollowed you It's d away by she posted herself without the ring. Great. Okay, but anyway As if that weren't bad enough. Teen Vogue reports that sources say Eric's choice to speak publicly on their relationship has further alienated Demi from Max saying quote she's completely embarrassed the way he's been acting and putting the relationship on blast by a social media. She wants nothing to do with him. Sources allege that Max has tried to contact me. Well, no bleep, because, presumably, instead of turning to social media, he could just pick up the phone right if they were engaged. You think he'd have her number one would imagine. But Demi is completely done. It doesn't want to see him again. At this point, she can't believe she fell into his trap. And it's really upset over it. Okay? Whatever. I don't know what story she's trying to tell us. But here's where things get otter. So on Tuesday, Max, um Post the messages to Instagram, by the way, all these messages like, disappear, but thank God for Jezebel, Another tabloids who have done the duty the deep to do, Don't we did their duty. To sort through all the posted messages on Instagram, seemingly implying that Demi Lovato was being abused. And then shared other messages referencing Jeffrey Epstein. Okay, so there's something going on page six reports that he posted three separate notes. Notes. APP Screenshots, which respectively read Hashtag Freed Ah, Demme Free Demetria because that's her name. Hashtag Free, Demetria. From the people that her abused her. What s so that's Max? Again? He's been shut down and shut out, and he's starting to post the sun Social. Then we get to Jeffrey Epstein in another Instagram post. He cryptically refers to Jeffrey Epstein saying. Quotes Jeffrey Obscene. Or let me put it this way they're trying to use Jeffrey Epstein's a verb. Jeffrey Epstein, me equals try to silence me for exposing the truth to the world.

It's just, you know, so there's the prison death and his whole thing. It seemed like it was going away. Well, it hasn't gone away. Now We're sort of looking at the woman who is his alleged madam, who allegedly arranged the girls for him to meet and Ages. Lane Maxwell. I think I'm saying her name right There she is. She has a deposition where she talked about all this, I guess. And now tomorrow she lost her plea to keep that all private. It's all going to become public. Tomorrow morning. All the pages and pages of this Yeah, it's interesting. This case is just fascinating by storm in so many ways, particular why he wasn't incarcerated the first time he was caught and, of course, his untimely that in the New York prison is just very suspect and subject to all kinds of very fascinating conspiracy theories. But that's just plain Maxwell eyes incarcerated right now, and she was fighting to keep this confidential, apparently with a deposition that she gave, which is a statement, you know, question and answer that probably went on for hours. Ours. What? Regarding a lawsuit brought by one of the victims against her and against Epstein, and it's been field meeting. We haven't been able to see it now. We're hoping that wouldn't be see this and it is on field. We will see what her complicity might have been. But listen. If she would have questions that would have implicated her criminally. She probably took the Fifth Amendment as Jeffrey extended in many of these cases, and the cases were ultimately settled. There's a few that are still pending, but so that means that probably he decided. I'm not going to testify. I don't want to be charged for these things. You don't want my statement to be used against me. So I'm just gonna pay out the money. Did you check them done with it? So I would like to feet some put transparent film what happened here? But I doubt working, really see and A thing of substance. That's interesting. You say that because they say the transcripts run more than 400 pages, And I know the Miami Herald has broken Atanas stories in relation to this. In fact, as you point out the first time he was arrested. They were on top of it, and everyone was sort of scratching their heads like, Wait a minute. He gets out on this strange release program where he gets to work all day and checks him with the prison every once in a while, or I don't know how that worked was. It was like that the easiest prison sentence in the history of prison sentences and now pass forward to today, these victims they want answers, and Victimsrights advocates are saying that they're hopeful that they will get something in these 400 pages were what she perches herself or she What are they looking for you if I were her lawyer during their process? The first thing I would be careful of is not so much a civil verdict against her, but her going to jail and she was asked the question. Did you 50 Mr Epstein and obtaining the girls to come to on the Lolita Express Order of the plane was called and she said, Oh, yes, I did. I brought her. You know, that could be used against her in a criminal court in the second and probably would have been so My guess is she took the fifth. My guess is she maybe even lied. My guess is she was evasive. I just doubt we're going to get anything of real substance here. Here's where we're going to get some answers to. The question is when the government comes to her and says, you're going to do the rest of your life in jail unless you flip Tell us all of who's involved in this. Who are the people who are keeping it quiet. And with their government corruption involved. What did Epstein Oh. What did all these victims No and get it all out in front of the public? Maybe they'll cut her a good deal. And you wonder, but But who does she have to turn in now that he's not around? Well, you know, there's been allegations that we've had past presidents, very famous lawyers up princes of countries involved in these things. And so I would imagine that I personally would like to know if the people were involved in. That would be a very important thing to know, because if they were and that was covered up by our government or by anybody We should know that you and there was also a rumor that she was in possession of all those videotapes that he had. You know, he had used him as blackmail that anybody who came to his islander on this plane are exposed to the stuff that he was doing and again Shame on all of them. It's reprehensible. If they did witness any of this kind of conduct that nobody stepped forward to protect those young women no one stepped forward to go after what was clearly a bad guy. But that he did have videotapes in the library's full of documented evidence and pictures to have to hold against people you know, again for blackmail purposes and otherwise that she might have control of some of those. That would be something I suppose she could bargain with. Absolutely. And they say that there were some in his mansion, his $70 million mansion in New York they found and along with passports with Saudi Arabian. Ah, dresses on it. So this murky and he had to be the lawyer who was involved in giving him the sweetheart deal. The first time came our department of Labor person in the White House. Hope so it seems, you know, just the whole thing is just smells. And again. I'm not one to always believe all this conspiracy theory stuff, but this stuff too. It's not not add up. It doesn't to me either. And never has. I agree with you on the neck here, and there's just there seems like there's so much here and so much that was covered up over time, by really important people that wanted to keep it quiet that that there's there's something here and and and again. If these were underage women who were falling prey to this kind of operation, it's just it's It's just disgusting. It's horrible. Really? So we'll see what happens. Moving forward there. Hey, there's one thing I want to ask you about your caring because I'm seeing some of these pop up. Okay, so in lieu of the city or the state, actually kind of cracking down on mass squares in any other way than it seems like they're going after the businesses and restricting them. We just heard from some restaurant owners on this show and the mayor of Wheaton to about how you know Hey, they're just they're trying to deal with this. They care about health codes and They're trying to make the most of it. But then, you know, you don't hear so much that they're actually going out on the street and finding anybody. They haven't taken that measure that I've heard in government yet. No, Maybe there's a municipality that is doing it, but I haven't heard about it. Now I just saw this article in Crane's about a condo association downtown. That is going to be finding you 500 bucks if you walk around in any of the common areas or the elevator or any of the places within that condo building without a mask on And I suppose I was wondering legally, I guess they they're allowed to do that. Sure. I'm the condominium laws in Illinois allow a condominium Must Opie should broad authority to protect the people in the building like smoking laws and curbing your dog and and and having, you know, safe sidewalks or whatever it is that that you have in your control and so clearly if the first ball of the mandate of the state about wearing math certainly Ah Condominium association Issue a regulation they have to give everyone notice of it. So that would be the first up. They would have to promulgate rule that says You can't walk around without a math and maybe a warming process. First time warning second time you could, but you get fined..

That's how I'm going to measure my distance from people hey, what's going on becks they s see you know the reason we still social distancing is because the coronavirus is still spreading, and this is thanks partly to people not taking it seriously. So let's catch up in another installment of our ongoing segments the pandemic. I our pandemic coverage, Hicks off in Utah State in desperate need of the l shaped tetris piece.

Let them storm the school building because maybe they would have accidentally learn something like I'm still trying to process everything that was going on at that rally no matter how many times I watched that video i. still find new things to process. Like that video is the closest thing I've seen to facebook comments happening in real life I like individual freedom wipe people are the real George Floyd. Happy. Birthday Martha Mask wearing was invented by Jeffrey Epstein. Oh and here's another reason it's hard for Americans. To get the pandemic under control even places do have rules for social distancing. This is how some people follow them growing concerns over Cova clusters especially on college campuses in Ohio police cited several people in a house near Miami University during the Labor Day weekend body camera footage captured a stunning exchange between an officer and a student or there's So, you probably know where I wanNA talk to too many people but you know the the ordinances ten people. Yeah. How many people are in the house? Twenty twenty people inside. You Might WanNa start clearing off the I've never seen this before there's an input on the computer that you tested positive for covid. When was this was? A week ago are you supposed to be quarantining? That's why I'm on my house do you have other people here and you? You're positive for Kovin? We WanNA, keep the site open. That's why. We're so screwed. The main part of quarantine isn't about being at your house, my friend. It's about being away from other people so that you don't spread the disease I'm scheduled. Know where this guy puts a condom on his buddy at this point I'm glad it's just corona virus. Can you imagine this dude handling Ebola wait so I'm not supposed to eat a monkey. Because I got to tell you there was some confusion there. Oh and just by the way. Watching this police officers body cam footage was like virtual reality game called white privilege because this kid was clearly breaking the law but the cups tone of voice sounds like he was telling him today specials Hieaux could I interest you and not breaking the law today? Get a few minutes to think it over and I'll come back so. Some people are misinformed some people a crazy and some people are both. People. Like Donald jaundiced trump president of the United States and one man super spreader overnight at a packed indoor rally president trump breaking Nevada's covid restrictions to court voters. In the key battleground state, we're going to win to that speaking to a throng of mostly mask Liz supporters, his first indoor rally nearly three months. The state prohibits gatherings of more than fifty people but trump defiant of the governor comes after you which you shouldn't be doing. I'll be with you all the while those behind the president and in front of the cameras wore masks, most of the crowd did not. But that didn't bother supporters like meal. Christianson who camped out overnight I'm not wearing a mask that's a shows that I trust my president. Okay look. I. Get why trump fan would have trusted trump before. But how do you still trust this off the he admitted that he's been downplaying the coronavirus this whole time I don't get it. I really don't get what do you mean you trust and this is like believing the Nigerian e mail scam off the he tells you that he's a Nigerian email scam although I'm a small time criminal pretending to be a wealthy prince. Will Send me some money. You know what? I liked this guy's honesty I will send him fifty thousand dollars and as for trump. How you call yourself the presence of law and order when you openly flouting the law and not even for a noble reason. No, it's just so that he can spend nineteen minutes ranting about how vegetables invented by the deep state and Hillary. Clinton and this isn't just about breaking the law. What Donald Trump is doing here is actually dangerous. The last time trump held an indoor rally. He lost twenty five percent of his black friends. So there you have it. Everyone from college students to grandma's to the president himself is helping this virus continue spreading. But I guess. That's the genius of America's Corona Virus Response. Unlike other countries that are preparing for the second wave America realized you don't have to deal with the second wave. If you never get over the first.
Fresh update on "epstein" discussed on Charlie Brennan
"We're joined by my friend Jeff Smith, this morning, executive director of the Missouri Workforce Housing Association, former Missouri Senator Jeff, How are you, buddy? I'm great. Mark, How are you doing? This one doing alright? I have one question for you. I can't wait. Where's Hunter? Way way nowhere. His laptop is but we can't find out her again this morning. He's missing in action. You know, I think what Biden and some of the purported emails that that came out. I actually think you know, at least from some voters that I talked to some kind of regular people that They portrayed Vice President Biden in a positive light. You could see his eyes you can see is evident concern for his child who he loved dearly, even as his son was in the throes of addiction, and you know it When you think about Joe Biden's life in context, and I'm not standing here being honest. Do you think about somebody who lost A child. A zone incident lost another son as an adult cancer. He may have been a little indulgent of of of Hunter and Because he didn't want to lose another son. You know what, while his son was again struggling with the challenges of drug addiction, I, but I don't think there's you know, there's still no shred of evidence that Joe Biden ever acted in a manner as a public official. Ah ah, that that that benefited himself to look for him. He looked the other way. I think that's what thes e mails prove I said earlier. It's not about Hunter Biden. It's about evidence that his dad has denied all along that he knew any of these people that he ever met with any of these people that he had any idea what Hunter was up to when he flew on Air Force two to the Ukraine and to China. In the meanwhile hunters raking in tens of millions of dollars in contracts. Because he referred to his guy in these e mails that his dad was making money on the family name. I couldn't do that. God forbid the child of a politician make money on the family name with Jared and even commit. I know four militants, dollar income from plastic used while Jared and Ivanka were senior advisers at the White House. While where the allegation While her patents while she well, the president's daughter was getting new patents in China, while the White House advisor it is, you know Donald Trump I admit he rarely makes things up. What he actually does more often is he looks at the things that he has done that are shameful and then accuses other people of doing them. Okay, you We denied he had a Chinese bank account. You know and said Hey, Hunter had a Chinese bank last night. It came out that actually, Trump had a Chinese bank account. This is this is his style. And you know, that's where we are distracted Squirrel. You're talking about the shiny object over here. Listen for a moment. When you were a state senator Missouri you didn't have kids, then is that correct? I did not. I did not have you, kid. But if you had had an adult child of that point, your adult child was profiting off of his guy. Which was you in the Missouri Senate. That would be an abuse of the system that that's what did it just like if I when I was a councilman in Wildwood, if some member of my family is profiting off of my job position that violates the public trust, that's what you have to focus on. And if Donald Trump were running against Hunter Biden Then I would tell you and I will tell you today, Hunter. Biden has probably done things that air smarmy and that we're probably not appropriate, but he's not running against 100 Bytes. He's running against Joe Biden, and there still hasn't been a scintilla of evidence that Joe Biden acted in a way. To help his son profit. Whereas there is there are reams of evidence that President Trump has been repeatedly compromised in service of his own profiteering. You can't you can't have it both ways. You can't show me the picture of Trump with his arm around Jeffrey Epstein at some point And then ignore the fact that Biden posed with his arm around Poroshenko or whoever the guy's name is from. From charisma left trucks out that photo every time the Epstein stories mentioned will look who Donald Trump used to associate with. You can't have it both ways. I agree with that. I'm not trying to have it Those ways. I don't care about any of Donald Trump's associations with Jeffrey Epstein. I care about Donald Trump's performance in office, like most wanted, two thirds of the American public disapproves of his performance on the pandemic. That's why he's 10 points behind in national polls. That's why he's behind most of the ballot ground states even on the economy, the issue that was his trump card. A year ago. Now Biden has pulled even with him in terms of, you know, handling of the economy and you know, and I think that's again. Why the president in the political predicament he's in, You know, he's desperate now to get some type of relief package. But, you know, Nancy Pelosi realizes that she has him over a barrel that there's a huge schism between Senate Republicans who don't want to spend another $2 trillion and the president, and I think she's exploiting that we still don't have stimulus because of him because of Nancy Pelosi. See that I almost called her Hillary. Same thing way Don't have stimulus because of Nancy Pelosi. She'd been holding this up since August for nothing other than politics. Anyway, I'm going to run out of time here when I did what I what I promised that I would let you talk about today. Is since you believe in second chances for people like Hunter Biden You want justice involved jobseekers to get a second chance. I d'oh idea believe in second chances for all people. Mark Andi. I appreciate you give me a chance to talk about it for a minute through ST Louis University..
Why specializing early doesn't always mean career success
"Hi. I'm Elise Hugh. And you're listening to Ted talks daily today's talk features really fascinating research that cuts us all some slack. What I mean is it turns out you can be a late bloomer in your chosen sport or skill or specialty, and it's actually better for you in a lot of ways. The talk is journalist David Epstein at Ted Ex Manchester in twenty twenty. So I'd like to talk about the development of human potential and I'd like to start with maybe the most impactful modern story of development. Many of you here have probably heard of the ten thousand dollars rule maybe you even model your own life after it. Basically, it's the idea that the become great anything takes ten thousand hours of focused practice. So. You'd better get started as early as possible. The poster child for this story is Tiger Woods. Father Famously, gave him a putter when he was seven months old at ten months, he started imitating his father's swing. At to, you can go on Youtube and see him on national television fast forward to the age of twenty one he's the greatest Golfer in the world's quintessential ten thousand dollars story. Another that features a number of bestselling books is that of the three Polgar sisters whose father decided to teach them chests in a very technical manner from a very early age and really wanted to show that with a head start and focused practice. Any child could become a genius in anything, and in fact, two of his daughters went onto become grandmaster chess players. So, when I became the Science Writer at sports illustrated magazine I got curious if this ten thousand hours rules correct then we should see that elite athletes get a headstart in so-called deliberate practice. This is coached air correction focus practice not just playing around, and in fact, when scientists study lead athletes, they see that they spend more time in deliberate practice not a big surprise. When they actually track athletes over the course of their development, the future leads actually spend less time early on in delivered practice in their eventual sport they to have what scientists call a sampling period where they try a variety of physical activities. They gain broad general skills they learned about their interests and abilities and delays specializing until later than peers who plateau at lower levels. And so when I saw that said, Gosh that doesn't really comport with the ten thousand hours rule does it. So I started to wonder about other domains that we associate with obligatory early specialization like music. Turns out the patterns often similar. Research from a world class, Music Academy, and what I want to draw your attention to is the exceptional musicians didn't start spending more time into practice than the average musicians. Until Third Instrument, they tended to have a sampling period. Even musicians we think of is famously precocious like Yo, Yo Ma he sampling period he just went through it more rapidly than most musicians do. Nonetheless, this research almost entirely ignored and much more impactful is the first page of the Book Battle Hymn of the Tiger mother where the author recounts assigning her daughter Violin. Nobody seems remember the part later in the book where her daughter turns her and says, you picked it not me and largely quits. So having seen this sort of surprising pattern in sports and music. I started to wonder about domains that affect and more people like education and economists found a natural experiment in the Higher Ed Systems of England and Scotland in the period studied, the systems were very similar except in England students had to specialize in their mid teen years to pick a specific course of study to apply tours in Scotland they could keep trying things in university if they wanted to and his question was who wins the trade off the early or the late specializes and he saw that the early specializes jump out to an income. Lead because they have more domain specific skills, the late specializes get to try more different things and when they do pick, they have better fit or what economists call match quality, and so their growth rates are faster by six years out erase that income gap. Meanwhile, the earliest specializes start quitting their career tracks in much higher numbers essentially because they were made to choose. So early that they more often made choices. So the late specializes lose in the short term and win in the long run. I think if we thought about career choice like dating, we might not pressure people to settle down quite so quickly. So this interested seeing this pattern again in exploring a developmental backgrounds of people whose work I had long admired like Duke Ellington who shunned music lessons as a kid to focus on baseball and painting and drawing or Mario Mir's economy who wasn't interested in math is a girl dreamed of becoming a novelist and went on to become the first and so far only woman to win the fields medal the most prestigious prize in the world in Math Vincent Van Gogh had five different careers, each of which he deemed his true calling before flaming out spectacularly, and in his late twenty s picked up a book called the guide to the ABC's of drawing. That worked out. Okay Claude Shannon was an electrical engineer at the University of Michigan who took a philosophy course just to fulfill a requirement and in it, he learned about a near century old system of logic or was true and false statements could be coded as ones and zeroes in solved like math problems. This led to the development of Binary Code, which underlies all of our digital computers today.
Gamers Using Flight Simulator to Visit Epstein Island
"Been around for a very, very long time Microsoft's flight simulator and they did this big upgrade and I showed ceiling somebody made a video that looked like soaring Soren from epcot the ride that you go on okay and they flew this plane around the. World to the most elaborate places and you know the wonders of the world and they had this beautiful video. It looks so real. It's unbelievable this new flight simulator game or whatever software if it's not really a game and there's already news stories about there's a phenomenon that is happening within flight simulator, there's one place in particular. The people are flying making videos of themselves and then uploading those videos online any guesses? Would it be Epstein Island Yeah Pedophile Island people have found it in flight simulator and they're flying by the island and making videos and they've just found like that's one of the spots because epsteins been in the news that they've targeted to go make videos of. is so bizarre but if you haven't seen the footage, it is pretty stunning to look at. Pc Yeah I don't think it's on any kind of APPs or anything. It's it's incredible though I used to play at when. If you. If you looked at the graphics now it would be like. Is Kids play child things. I don't know. I don't know if I'd like this. But now I like something they would use it a school to teach you how to fly for a simulator I mean or better. That's. Just, how some of the the terrorists learned way to bring it down see lane
Apple vs Epic: Store Wars
"So, as we are recording this the I don't know the apple developer community is in the middle of another one of its sort of I feel like it goes through these cycles of drama and the that's been the case for the more than decade that I've been an apple developer that there's always some kind of drama as your and we are currently in the middle of what seems like a fairly substantial drama like this is the kind of if if you go know the dramas can base from like the high school production to maybe the community theater like this is now like the Globe Theatre shakespearian drama like we are full-on to giant titans of industry like fighting each other. Over huge sums of money and lots of things specifically, I'm talking about. Epic and epic games and the kind of big drama they've been doing with apple where they create a sort of snuck in update into fortnight that introduced non inept purchase-. Purchasing and then they turned it on and then apple removing from the store and then they. Released, the video about that and filed a lawsuit and then apples threatening to remove them their developer account You know because they're in violation of the developer agreement and I mean the INS and outs orange particularly. Interesting. I think for the purposes of our discussion, like I mean, this is you know we would have independent development like as interesting as it is as a follower of apple and follower of Apple, news, and just like from a like for your at and it's kind of discussions. This is like prime grist for that mill but I think for us and for the purposes of our discussion, I thought would be interesting is to just start off at least by talking about it from a perspective of like does this impact us? Is something that. As a developer we should be worried about concerned about to based on etc and. I, think that is probably. The more constructive thing because? As much as I enjoy. Just, just from a it's like in many ways this is like you know some interesting thing is happening to like my favorite sports team or whatever like seeing this happen is certainly like there's an interesting interest factor to it though I certainly preferred it if it wasn't happening. But it certainly is interest as developer. It's I'm of two minds about it because. I think on the one hand they're arguing and fighting about. Things that I don't think. In the short-term don't really affect what I'm aiming to do like if apple was at some point allowing additional payment methods, I, personally don't think i. have any interest in in using them I would expect to continue to use. In a purchase for the foreseeable future because for me and the you know the pipe, the Epstein make and the way that I make them. Most of the benefit that I'm getting is apple provides a tremendous benefit in terms of ease of use in terms of integration with the platform. And they are taking care of a lot of things that identity need to, and I can just focus on making my apps have focus on making my user experiences good as I can and don't have to think too much about that kind of thing, and while they might potentially be an, you know an advantage if i. Say Stripe, you know subscriptions for something that I could use like I would consider it. I suspect more likely than not I would just stick with the built in thing because of the kind of network effects of having its There But at the same time like I do also do these kind of thing does make me worried about the future of the APP store and the future of. This environment where I've found my I've been able to kind of carve out my my little niche and I can you know hang out here and I can. Make just enough noise to Make a living and to have a sustainable business but I have no interest in becoming so large or so kind of visible bat. It disturbs the sort of the calm sustainability of what I have. I have my sort of Um in some ways I. think it was a find myself team to the lake up in the mountains and I can just hang out there and it's great and like I don't really want the lake to become part of the part of this big ocean or this big river like I just enjoy this little place that I have, and maybe that's shortsighted. But when I see things that. Potentially are GONNA, come and upset that it. It worries me like when I see the discussion or Movement around like additional APP stores and what that might mean or a side loading on the s like it worries me because. Things like big part or at least in certainly certainly in the early days and I think continue this to continuing to this date like one of the big advantages of irs as a platform is the general sense that customers have of safety of security of the fact that if you get if you download an APP from the APP store and it's does weird stuff, you just delete it and like all of its gone and all of its little tendrils are gone and it. It's like you don't have to worry about it and I think that is just tremendous benefit that if you start to. Like as soon as that's not one hundred percent true. In many ways becomes like not true at all and while you know a bit if you allowed side loading and that is usually not you know another thing most people use like sure. But now it's complicated and it's different and much I really want that complication. So. I I've gone back and forth about this a lot over the last sort of week since this all kind of started unravel what I thought and it's like. In the end I, just hope that it gets resolved amicably and we can kind of keep going as we are because I like that thing and like broadly I kind of agree with apple and I think that's probably a an unusual opinion it seems like based on these certainly the those who are vocal about on this topic, but generally agree with them and I kind of like the their stewardship of the APP store and their ability to make choices and I don't always agree with them in in detail but certainly by large, definitely agree with them in broad strokes.
Bad News For Prince Andrew As New Witness Comes Forward
"Let's move onto Prince Andrew can remind us how he started this year. He had been basically sacked from the royal family which we take subduing. He was essentially stripped of all his royal duties after his completely disastrous Newsnight interview y have you decided to talk now? because. There is no good time. To Talk, about Mr Epstein and. All things associated in Andrews Newsnight interview his big defense really aside from the fact that he of how they can't sweat and he's a big patron of the pizza. Express woking is that he didn't really know Jeffrey Epstein he claims he only knew him through his friend Glenn, bloom it through his girlfriend. Back, in nineteen, ninety nine, who an I'd known her since she. In the UK this is all Remember that it was his girlfriend. That was the key element in this he was the. Plus. One to some extent in an expert. You through a birthday party for since girlfriend then Maxwell at Sandringham. No shooting weekend a shooting weeks straightforward straightforward for choosing weekend. Despite the fact you know Jeffrey Epstein was at the Palace went to Epstein. Manson had dinner for him. He stayed with Epstein because because Andrew just couldn't find a central Manhattan hotel he's very convenient epsteins mentioned it was a convenient place to stay. I mean I've gone through this in my mind so many times. At the end of the day. with the benefit of all the hindsight that one can have. It was definitely the wrong thing to do is you say that interview was a disaster foundry and he was forced to withdraw from his rural Gt's I'm imagining heat hopes that would draw a line under the whole thing for him but then in July galet maxwell was arrested. The risks are simply too great. The words of the judge refusing bail this evening to maximum the one time girlfriend an alleged accomplice of the sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, might saw pleaded not guilty the hearing by video link on charges she helped recruit and groom minors as young as fourteen. So she was arrested in her strange though Bolthole and a few weeks later, a bunch of documents unsealed from a two thousand fifteen civil action brought against her by Virginia. Robert Scott Free and price price whose name pops up again it's Jews You know a lot of the allegations in these documents were already known but what is new is the allegation that? Forced Virginia Robert Scott Free to have sex with Prince Andrew as a way to gather incriminating evidence against him. And then on top of that, this month of witnesses come forward claiming to have seen the Duke of York, at trump nightclub on the night he insisted in the Newsnight interview that he was at Pizza Express in woking why would you remember that? So specifically, why would you remember a pizza best birthday in being because going to pizza express in working is an unusual thing for me to do. So he obviously hit denies everything but the circle is definitely tightening around Andrew. US. Law Enforcement has said repeatedly they want to talk to him that he has been cooperative a war of words as I'm sure you know has broken out between Prince Andrew and the US authorities investigating sex offender Jeffrey. Exiting The prince claims that he has offered to help that inquired eat city times but this is something the American prosecutors deny effectively calling him a liar the palace hopefully insisted this is untrue and US law enforcement has repeated it. So this is where we are at the moment. Do you think this puts more pressure on Andrew to cooperate with the investigation? Me The idea of any member of the royal family cooperating Larry's but yes, I mean absolutely. But I mean the fact that he was saying such stuff in that interview emily weightless without realizing how terrible the sounded I mean just shows he has no sense of consequences for his actions. I'm Jay his sin said, he regrets his ill-judged Association with Epstein. But as you point out, these aren't incredibly serious allegations and yet everybody feels like his story that dozen attract as many column, Inches Harry, and Meghan. Let's I think this is the thing when talking about the role families so much tension and I've just done two is focused on Harry Megan and the stupid decisions they make in his make it actually lady Macbeth is very telling for example, the mail there's certain Cole missed the male who I'm not gonNA pollute podcast listener's ears with his name, but he is completely obsessive. Meghan. Markle. Interest. Rates. Endless combs about her I. Don't like to own Andrew or something Sierra. Let's just bear in mind that actually the royal to really be focused on is Andrew
Court Unseals Documents in Ghislaine Maxwell Lawsuit
"Unsealed documents show that Jeffrey Epstein was offering advice. Take Elaine Maxwell as latest 2015 despite her lawyer statement that the quarters socialite had no contact with the disgraced financier in a decade. Maxwell's in a federal jail in Brooklyn after her arrest this month on charges of engaging with Epstein in a sex trafficking scheme, she's trying to stop the disclosure of documents that include her sworn testimony in a civil case. Joining me is Bloomberg legal reporter Patricia Hatano, who's been covering the Maxwell case that give us the background on these documents there? This is a prolonged involved. Story goes back here. There was a young woman named Virginia Robert to Frank's, and she says that when she was 16 years old, she encounters going Maxwell at Mar a Lago. Her dad works there, the maintenance man, he gets a job at the law. She's handing out pals and ah lovely woman. British woman comes up to her She's reading a book about massage and offered her a job working for this wealthy man who wants to go looking for a private, Mr She said. She was 16 years old at the time. So she goes to the mansion. If it turns out, she's introduced Jeffrey Epstein and he immediately and Maxwell, she alleges. Forced her to perform sex acts with the two of them program and she became a sex slave she and alleges that was in 1999 2000. So then she ends up. Trying to join a law with victims of Epstein after everything gets his secret plea deal, and she makes him comments about Maxwell publicly and Maxwell coming back and issued a press release in January 2015. She makes pigments and says that this woman is a liar. Would provoke a pram a defamation lawsuit. Dupree, Suze Maxwell for Defamation and Natural gave testimony under oath questioned about the sex trafficking. Judy was very, very aggressive. Her lawyers included David Boy and this guy Bradley, Edward and Pottenger in Florida, and they really went to question Maxwell at people that worked at the stain home in Palm Beach. All kind of allegation. Soju phase allege with force have sex that you have traffic in Spain. This man including alleged princes, possibly Prince Andrew. She named him and Maxwell denies it. So what happens is the stuff was all settled right? On the eve of trial, 2015 losses got settled right before trial, And then the documents were under field. So how did all those sealed documents get unsealed before Jeffrey Epstein's suicide? But after F being gets prosecuted, the Miami Herald goes to ask why this field And the Court of Appeals. Second Circuit Court of Appeals directed that the judge who had originally had the law didn't properly feel you shouldn't have properly field everything. It was improper to keep all the documents from the public. And so that's how we get to this point. The circuit orders last on the order all these documents and fields and all the documents start hitting the docket. And the next day, Jeffrey Epstein is found dead in his jail cell of an apparent suicide. So the document release was sent back to a new federal judge to preside over what properly on field in what should not be properly and field And you can imagine there's all these implications for other people whose names may can't come off other victims who allegedly were there when the trafficking occurred or were also traffic who may not want to have their names come out there like a Jane Doe Juan and a Jane Doe two and no Mortal, Jane Doe and also John Doe. So Judge Preska on July 23rd shelter hearing after you know, Matthew now been charged and says, Okay, let's go and have a hearing about what you get on field, So she ordered the first transfer documents to be unsealed last Thursday night, So that's how we get to the testimony. Maxwell with questioned under oath. The government used the testimony as a basis say stay. She lied and committed two counts of perjury for lying when she claimed she was never present. When Ft may have been sexually abusing, underage girl know, and she'd seen anything like it, she was not aware of that activity, illegal activity no more. President ever witnessing it so that testimony remains under seal because she went for an emergency motion and after the court of Appeals to again stop the release. Thursday night, the 30th so that was on 11th hour stock about part But the rest of the documents hit the docket starting at like 9 30 on Thursday night. How many documents are already out 2000 pages released in August. So that's when we started first seeing these allegations of possible you know Prince Andrew's involvement, some captains of industry more implicated some senators from former president their allegations that were flight records of people who were on the plane.

My Rare Disease Does Not Define Me
"I'm joined today by singer, songwriter and patient advocate, Gracie van brunt formerly based in Los Angeles. Gracie moved back to the Boston area before the Kovic pandemic. She's the recipient of the two thousand thirteen rare champions of hope patient advocacy. Award. From the nonprofit advocacy group global jeans at age two, she was diagnosed with a rare disease that I'm going to let her pronounce, and even before the pandemic, she was an expert at social distancing. She is here to share her story and her art welcome Gracie Hey. Thank you so much for having me what an amazing introduction. Thank you so much for being here. We're I'm really excited. This is gonNA. Be Fun. Yes, I'm so. Yeah you too. All right. So can you tell me about your disease and how is it pronounced? Yes. So it's called Schwartzman. Diamond. Syndrome. Like a Walkman, but just with an ass and then I'm in just like a like a diamond gem and then syndrome and it is a very rare disease that only affects I think around like five thousand people in the whole world how and I was diagnosed when I was two and now I'm twenty five. So it's a genetic chronic disease that is currently incurable. We are working on a cure for it, which hopefully can be developed soon, it is also life threatening. So the main aspect of the disease is your bone marrow and a lot. Lot of patients with SDS as we like to abbreviate, it have bone marrow issues where their bone marrow fails and We don't have enough blood counts really like we don't have enough platelets, not enough white cells and not enough red cells, which basically makes up your immune system So we get sick a lot quicker than a normal person would and we also a lot more prone to getting leukemia, which is a blood related cancer, and so the point of getting a bone marrow transplant would be to eliminate that risk. Let's start to talk about this and dig in Can you tell me about your song run ron run because I'm kind of obsessed. It's pretty great. Thank you. Run run run is a song that I wrote about my disease and having to live with it and confronted every day and The first line is my disease does not define me, but recently it's all I. can see and that is because three years ago in twenty seventeen, I got like a huge Epstein Barr virus. I just got really sick from having the Epstein Barr virus, which kind of like was the catalyst to me getting my heart transplant to use later, and so it's kind of just about having to actually confront my disease head on. which is something I haven't had to do for a long time because you know growing up after all of my hospital stints. I got gradually better and I was able to kind of dislike, put my disease into a little box and leave it there and On. A kind of live my life as a normal person. A. and. So when I got this Epstein, Barr in two, thousand, seventeen, it was a huge huge hit to my system. I was extremely sick for a few months and that ultimately led to me having to get a transplant but. Up, until then, I. You know I could be a normal teenager like do normal activities and. not really have to put a lot of emphasis on my body or my health. But because of this catalyst I'll say Really really. Forced me to take my disease out of that little box. I had it in and really really face it. So the chorus goes. To run run run just like I've always done and I leave it alone. But I, have nowhere else to go which is me really just like having to confront the fact that you know I'm still sick I will never be a normal bio typical person and I have to do this transplant for like to better my own quality of life and Just. Focus on. My health more than anything. So that's pretty much what it's about, and then like a little fun fact is. I had already written it before I got the news about my bone marrow transplant. So I had my doctor's appointment on December twenty, fourth two, thousand eighteen, which is like Yay, Christmas, time such great news. But so I had my doctor's appointment, and I already had like a little demo of this song done because Louis is my boyfriend and he's a wonderful producer and we had already been working on Um songs for my upcoming EP and then we'd already done this one. So the first thing I did when I came home was I actually just listened to this song to make me feel better. Because, it's just like it was just the best remedy for me because it is exactly how I felt in this. Little compact. Song.
My Rare Disease Does Not Define Me
"I'm joined today by singer, songwriter and patient advocate, Gracie van brunt formerly based in Los Angeles. Gracie moved back to the Boston area before the Kovic pandemic. She's the recipient of the two thousand thirteen rare champions of hope patient advocacy. Award. From the nonprofit advocacy group global jeans at age two, she was diagnosed with a rare disease that I'm going to let her pronounce, and even before the pandemic, she was an expert at social distancing. She is here to share her story and her art welcome Gracie Hey. Thank you so much for having me what an amazing introduction. Thank you so much for being here. We're I'm really excited. This is gonNA. Be Fun. Yes, I'm so. Yeah you too. All right. So can you tell me about your disease and how is it pronounced? Yes. So it's called Schwartzman. Diamond. Syndrome. Like a Walkman, but just with an ass and then I'm in just like a like a diamond gem and then syndrome and it is a very rare disease that only affects I think around like five thousand people in the whole world how and I was diagnosed when I was two and now I'm twenty five. So it's a genetic chronic disease that is currently incurable. We are working on a cure for it, which hopefully can be developed soon, it is also life threatening. So the main aspect of the disease is your bone marrow and a lot. Lot of patients with SDS as we like to abbreviate, it have bone marrow issues where their bone marrow fails and We don't have enough blood counts really like we don't have enough platelets, not enough white cells and not enough red cells, which basically makes up your immune system So we get sick a lot quicker than a normal person would and we also a lot more prone to getting leukemia, which is a blood related cancer, and so the point of getting a bone marrow transplant would be to eliminate that risk. Let's start to talk about this and dig in Can you tell me about your song run ron run because I'm kind of obsessed. It's pretty great. Thank you. Run run run is a song that I wrote about my disease and having to live with it and confronted every day and The first line is my disease does not define me, but recently it's all I. can see and that is because three years ago in twenty seventeen, I got like a huge Epstein Barr virus. I just got really sick from having the Epstein Barr virus, which kind of like was the catalyst to me getting my heart transplant to use later, and so it's kind of just about having to actually confront my disease head on. which is something I haven't had to do for a long time because you know growing up after all of my hospital stints. I got gradually better and I was able to kind of dislike, put my disease into a little box and leave it there and On. A kind of live my life as a normal person. A. and. So when I got this Epstein, Barr in two, thousand, seventeen, it was a huge huge hit to my system. I was extremely sick for a few months and that ultimately led to me having to get a transplant but. Up, until then, I. You know I could be a normal teenager like do normal activities and. not really have to put a lot of emphasis on my body or my health. But because of this catalyst I'll say Really really. Forced me to take my disease out of that little box. I had it in and really really face it. So the chorus goes. To run run run just like I've always done and I leave it alone. But I, have nowhere else to go which is me really just like having to confront the fact that you know I'm still sick I will never be a normal bio typical person and I have to do this transplant for like to better my own quality of life and Just. Focus on. My health more than anything. So that's pretty much what it's about, and then like a little fun fact is. I had already written it before I got the news about my bone marrow transplant. So I had my doctor's appointment on December twenty, fourth two, thousand eighteen, which is like Yay, Christmas, time such great news. But so I had my doctor's appointment, and I already had like a little demo of this song done because Louis is my boyfriend and he's a wonderful producer and we had already been working on Um songs for my upcoming EP and then we'd already done this one. So the first thing I did when I came home was I actually just listened to this song to make me feel better.

New Trump Campaign ad Looks Bad For Trump
"Donald Trump is in a lot of dead, so it's very unlikely that he actually outright owns anything, but he does love to own himself, and that's the case with the latest campaign ad you put out. Let's take a look. You have reached the nine one one police emergency line due to defunding of the police department. We're sorry, but no one is here to take your call. If you're calling to report a rape, please press one to report a murder press to to report a home invasion press three for all other crimes. Leave your name and number and someone will get back to. You are estimated. Wait. Time is currently five days goodbye. Now if that adds scares, you and you wouldn't WanNa live in the type of country that would have those types of scenes of. And Destruction! You should probably vote trump out of office because all of that footage happened under trump's watch. In fact, all the footage used in that ad was from March and I'll give you. Those details I'm sorry may of this year and I'll give you those details in just a moment, but also one of trump's campaign advisers Boris. Epstein also shared a similar video. NOT THAT AD itself. But in that video you see the violence and the destruction, and he says this would be Joe Biden's America. It's a very scary place except it's happening right now, and it's in trump's America. And I want you to remember what he said during came action. Because if you say wow, I, mean look. They're protesting. The saints that have happened recently police abuse. Yeah, well, trump had four years to fix it, and he didn't. He actually loves when police abuse African American citizens. Why after George Floyd? Floyd, but let's remember to protect the real victims here the confederate flag. And military bases named after confederate heroes so. Yeah he? There's a reason why those things are happening. Even the worst of most of them are overwhelmingly peaceful protests. Of the rioters and looters are because of Donald Trump's complete and utter indifference this issue, so that is trump's America but back. Then when he was accepting the nomination, he said the crime and violence that today our nation will soon. I mean very soon come to an end beginning on. January, twenty twenty seventeen safety will be restored. Saying. Let's let's go to those images and like some screen shots of the video that was used in that campaign ad, which again were from May of this year and we can just obviously. Rebut that ridiculous statement, so that's from Minneapolis. In May of twenty twenty twenty may twenty to be specific. It's an image from the night when a Minneapolis police precinct was burnt down. Okay, let's go to the next one. Another screen shot from trump's add This is a shot of liquor store that was set ablaze on the same night. Again this is in Minneapolis. May Twenty twenty-eighth Twenty twenty when the president of the United States is Donald Trump? And then let's go to one more. It's an image of a window being smashed at a bankruptcy court in Grand Rapids Michigan. And, it was taken. This photo is from May thirtieth twenty twenty so looks like he's by way. He's a criminal himself. I mean defrauded students with trump. University used his own charitable foundation, which had to be shut down because he was utilizing the funds from that charitable foundation to enrich himself. He has violated the emoluments clause of our Constitution over and over and over again he loves crime. He bathes in crime. But he he uses law and order as a dog whistle and a lot of ways. No no way since one hundred percent right and so the slogan is no justice, no peace and that's almost exactly what's happened during the trump era, there's no justice at all the real criminals. The top Roger Stone and all the others have been released from the jails. It's like a reverse Bain. Vicious release all the white collar criminals, and all the crooks of the. And all Donald Trump's friends Michael Milkin. Blagojevich Democrat doesn't matter nothing matters. Okay except Donald Trump's France so did and then at the bottom. Did any of US get justice? No, the police abuse continued, and and what Donald Trump has to offer us more violence and violence begets violence. So that's where we are today and I'm going to go back one more time. Do speech a twenty sixteen while he was accepting the GOP nomination, he said. Nobody knows the system better than me. Which is why I alone can fix it. Okay well. You've got four years to fix it and apparently only one who could do it. So why are you waiting for? The protests are larger. Also different issue violence is on the rise. While you're not fixing it. Are you holding back? Are you holding? America hostage until your second term, and then you will magically fixing who could believe such preposterous things? He obviously is in over. His head doesn't know what he's doing and everything is done has been counterproductive and led to more violence to. What we see in that ad, which is trump's America? Want, they mentioned rate there in the beginning punched out word to scare people even more. If you're reporting a rate, we will not be responding. Who are you kidding? The reason we're a have deep on the police. Responding, anyway, only thirty percent of rape cases across the country are ever solve by our incompetent police. We WanNA defunding partly because we want to build a better police department that actually solves cases.
Lincoln Project Releases Video Criticizing Trump's Pandemic Remarks and Well-Wishes to Ghislaine Maxwell
"I want to take a look at another factor in the campaign, and this is Republicans working against the re election of Donald Trump, and this is the latest from the Lincoln Project, let's take a look at the Lincoln projects latest AD. COVID nineteen deaths till now more than one hundred forty, one thousand thousand new deaths reported overnight. It is what it is. Forty million people have lost their jobs in ten weeks is what it is massive camouflaged federal agents detaining peaceful protesters. It is what it is. The British social is accused of conspiring with. I wish her well whatever it is I just wish it well frankly. Jennifer Mary from Donald. Trump's both yesterday to the ad tonight. something obviously unimaginable before him? President United States saying I wish her well twice about a woman accused of sex trafficking, minor jewelry four Jeffrey, Epstein. Yeah and it's a case. The Messenger being effective for getting getting under trump's skin. Think that wondering the Lincoln projects does really well. Is that Republicans are former Republicans may know what irks Republicans and say you know. I, think coming back. Keep coming back to that comment about wishing her well is joined to. It's GonNa. It's GonNa. Upset Him, and that's what. That's what he does. Their ads are designed to do that. Designed to provoke and you know with the the video with the former vice president and President Obama. It's another case of the Messenger being just the right one in. We all talk about how trump doesn't take responsibility. Kirk says, but to have a former president I dates. Who Bore so much responsibility for advice for the United? States, speaking in a casual conversation like this. I think it really has an impact people. It's not a speech. It's not a set interview. It's a conversation and also as a practitioner I really admire how well the Biden campaign is played this out a clip today. We are all talking about it. I got a ton of. Of calls from reporters today. Who wanted to talk about the Biden Obama relationship? There was an event in build build. There's more that they'll will see tomorrow, but this is what the campaigns got to figure out. How do you do this and the time of a pandemic when you don't when the BP doesn't have the opportunity to do a lot of offense and I think we'll have to see stage, but in this case manage to make it informal in warm events like this. As the president was leaving the briefing room. Today we could all hear someone or more than one reporter yelling. That name Lane Maxwell to the president That was the question he didn't want to deal with today about. Why did he wish her well yesterday? That's right and what we saw yesterday was a president who was at least on message when he was reading. Out from notes, but then when he was his notes, he was against spreading misleading information so while he's reading he saying yes, the it's going to get worse before it's better the minutes later when he doesn't have a dose in front of what he's saying is actually it's going to disappear so what we see and president trump is someone who is easily thrown off in this case. When he's answering the question, he's being fully himself, so he answered that question really in the way that he really believed. He wanted to answer it and I. Think now, of course it's causing problems for him, and maybe now he's GonNa Adjust his answer. to to find some way that will make this may smooth over a bit, but we already know what president trump thinks because we have to go with the first answer, which is the answer that he gave when he was really thinking about it, in a way that was very much leaning on his instincts, which was of course to wish her well.
"epstein" Discussed on BROKEN: Jeffrey Epstein
"You on the street car, even if that car is a Mercedes, you know to keep on walking, but if it's another woman and she sounds all fancy and well educated. You probably going to get in the car. I don't feel. Compassion Sorry d'alene Without Galina. How many people would Epstein of abused obviously in? He has a lot of money. We had a lot of money and you know he has means, and he was very determined, but without someone who. Can other woman ease Act as cover for him. Get used the British accent and the and the sort of the sort of hot. To make it seem legitimate, give it the Polish of the Gypsum Assi how how many fewer people would would have this happened with because. For me, that's that's the sort of. Worst part of what Elaine did. Making Epstein seem legitimate. And giving him this veneer of respectability. That's what she she lent to him, and that enabled him. I think to do this abuse on a far grander scale than he otherwise would have been able to and. That's to me the most pernicious part of gains contribution to this.

"epstein" Discussed on The Mysterious Mr. Epstein
"Tie David Brown the host of wondering show business wars. We go deep in some of the biggest corporate rivalries of all time. Well in our latest series. We're following a battle. That's been brewing. For decades between to Java giants starbucks and Dunkin in this bitter rivalry the every man brand founded by an eighth grade. Drought has to take on the elite behemoth to dominate a global market. Worth more than one hundred billion dollars to listen to starbucks versus Dunkin and other great series subscribe now. Business Wars from wondering. Let's investigate just a little bit another side of Epstein Personality You mentioned that for Les Wexner. He was almost a cult leader but Epstein himself also had some very strange cultish predilections and pursuits. You mentioned his company Southern Trust and that sounds like a financial firm but what it actually did was analyzed customers. Dna to see if they had cancer markers. Or what? That's what it purported to do. What can you tell us about this enterprise nothing nothing? There's no evidence that they ever did anything like that. When you look at the documents I mean what customers. There are no clients there no customers. There's nobody showing up in the Virgin Islands to have their DNA tested. It's absurd and when you look at the documents the documents about income and fees and money and assets. It's the same format when it was financial trust and supposedly financial company as Southern Trust and supposedly a DNA company. He did have grandiose notions along these lines about doing things algorithm cly. The point is he did have grandiose ideas but there's no evidence that he ever actually executed on any of them it does seem though that the DNA business even if it was Wishful thinking best or just a a complete cover does fit in with epsteins. Obsession with with immortality. The project he funded harbored even his plan to impregnate women at his Santa Fe ranch to I don't know what create a Epstein Super Race. Do you know anything more about his this more bizarre side of a very bizarre man. No I don't Truth is that real scientists who sat around him thought he was a charlatan. They just didn't they didn't buy his stick at all Scientists who got a lot of money from of course Always said Nice things him But this side of him which has come out since his death was was not all particularly well known by the by the larger public During his life in January Les Wexner stepped down as the CEO of L. Brands. What was the fallout here? I it's been devastating for wexner. There are two things happening here. The first is that Even without all of this. The Victoria's secret brand and the Victoria's secret Style of lingerie has been going out of fashion and so sales are down. The stock is down. The company is hurting And Les Wexner you know supposedly magical touch with fashion and and Trans seems to have failed him. So that's a problem right there. So then you compound the problem with this inexplicable relationship. He has with a criminal And he's in the papers you know every day because of his association with Jeffrey Epstein. And it's been very very damaging they're also things that haven't really even come out yet for instance you know. It was known among the women Who spent time you know as one of these victims that if you went to the Virgin Islands you would be handed. Victoria's secret lingerie and Told to take your clothes off. And where the lingerie all weekend? So the Victoria's secrets. It's not over for Victoria. Secret in terms of its relationship with Epstein was wexner reputation prior as a person a businessman This certainly has taken a toll and you said he had a golden touch reputation for doing things. Well right I mean. They're in the trade in certain people in the in the fashion business who were called. You Know Merchants Leslie. Wexner was a merchant. He was said to have just a really good sense of what was going to trend in fashion and and What Women and young girls. We're GONNA like and he was the secret of the company's success really He built a company out of that. It was a successful company. He made a lot of money. And you know until this took place. I mean yeah. He was in his eighties and there was a sense that he would be resigning soon. And and there's also a sense of Victoria secret struggling but he would have retired as one of the great man in the history of the fashion industry and now he's not. That will never happen now. He will forever be associated with Jeffrey Epstein Strangely. So as Wexner wife tell us about her. So you know his wife's name is Abigail Leslie Wexner 's and when when Epstein did his plea bargain in Florida the first time. He pled guilty of these charges. But before it was known by the General Public Abigail Western set up a charity a nonprofit and Epstein deposited forty three million dollars into that charity then went to jail. The charity made to contributions to local Columbus Ohio charities and then it went out of business and sent the rest of the money to the Wexner Family Foundation. It's really hard to understand why those transactions took place. Why why did that happen? What was Mrs Wexner doing? Was she fronting for her husband she helping Epstein was she taking money acted that Epstein owed wexner. We don't know you know the other aspect of it is. In addition to the money that Wexner was paying Epstein directly he was also funding Epstein charities and in fact there are several nonprofits Epstein have where Westerners twenty one million dollars with the only contributions. That's another thing that's inexplicable. Because WEXNER HIMSELF. He had his own charities. Three or four of them The main one devoted to Jewish causes but also for his children and and and several others so in a why was he also funding epsteins charities. And you don't believe they're the ranchers to these questions yet. There are not answers to these questions yet. I think there will be some day. But they're definitely not yet. I mean the problem is you know Epstein has died so the criminal case against him is going away. So there's no purpose and interviewing people like Leslie Wexner to ask about Epstein because he's dead so it wouldn't be until the FBI or the Justice Department for instance arrest some of his former enablers that we might start to get some of the answers to these questions. And there are also civil suits pending against the Epstein Estate. Do you think any of those will yield answers. it's a little hard to tell and let me let me explain why this several things going on in the litigation arena that may prove fruitful so first of all just so you know the. The estate has hired Ken Feinberg. Who is the lawyer who did the nine eleven fund and many others to distribute Estate Money to victims but in order for the victims to get that money they have to opt out of of lawsuits. Many of them will do that. But some will not some will continue to sue the question From those who sue is will they settle If they settle any all the documents be sealed or will the public be able to see the documents Normally when you settle lawsuits documents are sealed. You can see where the problem is when you look at the lawsuit that was settled between Virginia Gha Fray who is a very important and outspoken victim and displaying maxwell who was epsteins former girlfriend and allegedly her is chief enabler so they settled a lawsuit. Fifteen thousand documents were put under seal. The Court of Appeals released about two thousand pages worth of documents which made headlines. But this still over ten thousand documents that have not yet been released that are still under seal and Maxwell's lawyers are doing everything they possibly can to keep them under seal. That's part of the problem here. Is that if victim settled with the estate. The documents will not see the light of day and therefore we won't know the answers if the documents are released then. There's a good chance we will see the answers. Finally there's there's another person that rarely gets brought up but Epstein had a brother Mark and he is the sole heir to the state. What you know about him. The one thing I can tell you about him is that he's not going to get any money There will be no money from that estate leftover because the chances are the between the lawsuits and the settlements and the can find.

"Epstein is dead. The survivors of his crimes remain. There's a new podcast that focuses on them truth and lies. Jeffrey Epstein is from from the makers of the dropout and start here for nearly a year the investigative team at ABC News has been working to examine who and what enabled epsteins rise. They've also traveled across the country to speak with a number of the survivors. Now they're bringing you those stories firsthand and the unforgettable voices of those impacted.

Jeffrey Epstein is is available on Apple podcasts. Or wherever you're listening right now coming Pepsi's coming I I know. You're freaking out. Dolphins relax okay. The man with the thick New York accent. That's detective Joe. Rick Perry. I want to thank you for coming. And he's a veteran investigator with the Palm Beach Police Department and he's talking to a young woman who sits on a couch across from him. He's tall and broad with slicked slicked. Back hair while she's small almost swallowed by the cushions. Then you may have information on a case of looking into okay. That's the reason why I brought you hit today. Did I say right now is just a witness. The young woman is nineteen years old. And we'll call her Erica. That's not her real name. I remember problem telling you know very clever. Erica is there because detective or carry is investigating several reports of sexual assault. It started when a fourteen year old girl got into a fight at school it might have otherwise gone unnoticed except that the girl was found with three hundred dollars on her. The grow was cagey about where the money came from but eventually she said she'd gone to a rich old guy's house in Palm beach and giving him a massage and she says Erica. uh-huh brought her there. She hearing anything she needed money. I basically told her about it. She was like you know. What are you have to do? I told her I was like the more you do. The more you make that. She walked out of the three hundred dollars so she obviously in evidently do more push was good to massage. She gave him resigned and she basically like tonsured down there. Erica says that for every girl she brought the old old man. She also made two hundred dollars so they train. How many girls have you brought to a lot? Walsh was underage. He told me detective carry and the other. Investigators didn't know it yet yet but this case would consume their lives for years to come. There's as well as the dozens of victims left in the wake. The case involving the rich old old guy in Palm Beach would come to include allegations of abuse across multiple continence and several states. Their kid not have possibly been a more or wealthy a more powerful or a more dangerous sexual predator. There is no other case like this misses the longest standing human trafficking trafficking case. This all happened the way it did. Because of money money power and influence no doubt about it he certainly got it off on the fear of it all and the intimidation of it. All and the powered it I think that's part of what's so hard is like I feel like. He took my power the rich old guy in the mansion in Palm Beach. That was Jeffrey Epstein growing firestorm storm surrounding multimillionaire. Jeffrey Epstein Tonight Arrested and charged Manhattan Managed Financier Jeffrey Epstein. They found hundreds of the indictment says he. He created a vast network of recruiters to find him a constant supply of minor girls willing to engage. My name is Mark Remillard and I'm a reporter with ABC. You see news and I've been working with a team of journalists within ABC's investigative unit to Peel back the curtain. On how Jeffrey Epstein largely eluded justice for decades seconds we look at how Epstein built a financial empire one that provided him with access to young girls and the power to shield himself from punishment. Mishmash is paid his way out of this and the US government has allowed it. Jeffrey Epstein is a guy who's become extraordinarily wealthy being without any clear path. Tha that wealth and we look at how his alleged criminal conspiracy grew over the years with the help of others the predators are grooming children. They groomed my sister. They groomed me. It was a whole network working together to bring these girls into his own will hear from victims now women who have waited years to find their voice and tell their stories. I refuse to let this man when and death. I will not stop fighting and I will not be silenced anymore. If you're a victim of sexual abuse your voice should be heard period from ABC News. This is truth in Lies Jeffrey Epstein Chapter One Palm Long Beach Predator. But I'm GonNa Cross the bridge so here we go. This is the bridge that takes you from West Palm Beach to Palm Beach. There's a for all right. They're coming in the opposite way of the bridge. I'm in a car. Driving took Palm Beach Island an Uber wealthy enclave just off the mainland Florida coast of West West Palm Beach. The fact that people have money here is obvious. All the streets in this area are at least on the monopoly board. There was Park Avenue Atlantic Avenue to understand what happened in Palm Beach. And what happened with Jeffrey Epstein. You I have to understand Palm Beach in Palm Beach perceptionist really everything. There's a certain lifestyle down palm. Beach is expensive sensitive and it looks explains the norm there in Palm Beach. You're not a millionaire billionaire. They call it fantasy island. You can't get on the island for less than two point. Five million and this is part of the Palm Beach is filled with Mega Mansions. Each one is unique. No cookie cutter tract homes here.

"epstein" Discussed on Truth and Lies: Jeffrey Epstein
"If you're flying in style with class you're flying Pan Am on thirty five thousand Panamerican Airways one of the iconic American travel all brands of the fifty sixty seventy s by the nineteen eighties. This one's premiere world airline Panam has fallen on hard times and Hoffenberg Epstein thing that would be great target for us to raid so they offer millions of dollars in bonds from united diversified to buy Pan Canam. The money was being used from the insurance companies and from our financial in the approach to take over Panamerican Airways is it was the height of the decade of greed the nineteen eighties. And to hear that Steven Hoffenberg and Jeffrey Epstein or trying to take over over an airline. It's hard not to think of one of the most iconic movies of that era gre- for lack of a better word is good. It's reminiscent of the movie Wall Street. Where the slick Gordon Gecko attempts a hostile takeover of failing airline garage sale in real life the towers takeover bid for Pan Am would fail and Hoffenberg states in his affidavit that resulted in quote overwhelming losses for the insurance companies as well as towers investors and according to Hoffenberg that left towers swimming women in debt? But he says the scheming didn't stop instead of closing up shop. They double down. They start selling these worthless bonds to investors investors in order to pay their previous investors. And that's the hallmark of a Ponzi scheme. You continuously sell something worthless essentially in order to a pay your previous investors and keep making money for yourself but before the scheme would unravel Hoffenberg says he and Epstein Reap the the benefits towers financial which is a publicly traded company were using investors new money to pay the investors old money back. That's the traditional scope of a Ponzi scheme. And that's what occurred and Hoffenberg or claims that it's through towers that Epstein gets his first real taste of wealth. Jeffrey obscene in the scheme. Resigning millions ZIP dollars for himself to benefit from the disadvantage of the insurance companies and the people at towers financial unusual. And that's how he became rich while still employed by towers in Nineteen Eighty Eight Epstein Inc J Epstein Steve and company in New York. which would later become epsteins public explanation for his wealth that he was a successful financial adviser he later? Renamed that company the Financial Trust Company Hamburg says that when Epstein came to him he was living in a one bedroom apartment but by the time he he leaves he's living a much different considerably wealthier. Lifestyle and Hoffenberg says that abstain makes a little money. Through this tower. Financial Nanteuil scheme goes off and uses that money to cede his next venture the money for these acquisitions for this expensive lifestyle. It came from towers financial. He became a millionaire only because towers financial. There's no question that that was the seed money for the financial nutro scupper towers financial would collapse as a Ponzi scheme in nineteen ninety-three. It was in February that year when the SEC filed a suit against Hoffenberg the company and some of its other executives in Nineteen ninety-three the SEC files a lawsuit against Hoffenberg and this is the beginning inning of the end for him. It is at the time one of the biggest Ponzi schemes of our time. And this is of course before Bernie Madoff while Hoffenberg says that Epstein Epstein was the mastermind of the Scheme Epstein had left the company before it collapsed and it was Hoffenberg who would end up pleading guilty to charges of securities fraud. I plead guilty and ninety five cents in ninety seven. Hoffenberg is convicted and he ends up spending. Nearly twenty years in federal prison. Hoffenberg it would also be ordered to pay restitution of more than four hundred fifty million dollars back to the Victims Epstein however was never charged in the matter how Epstein Walk from this. I don't have an answer. It looks twenty five years on that some combination of luck walk good lawyering and prosecutorial oversight you know led to Epstein somehow how getting getting away without even a fine that we can discern in tapes provided to ABC News. We're hearing epsteins account of what happened. He tells journalist David Bank in two thousand three mid he did consult Hoffenberg on the takeover of panel the. I'm not sure hindsight that that would be like this. But I advised and the green part of but Epstein claims. He didn't know about towers and Hoffenberg fraudulent activity until the company's collapse. An in that two thousand three interview Epstein Throws Hoffenberg under the bus so that we have the state your pendants I would associate with. But when they're out against the other factors of the money that he had if you have money taken some Forgive my laughing but there is no explanation in the world. None for Jeffrey. FC Not to have been charged with me as a co-defendant Hoffenberg however doesn't by the babe in the woods routine and he says Epstein should. I've been standing right beside him when the handcuffs were slapped on. Jeffrey Epstein participated in lockstep with everything. That was is part of the criminal enterprise the telephone intial Epstein walks from this Disaster Epstein to the best of our knowledge at this point does it have any personal reliability in this and he does it have to forfeit anything. He certainly doesn't spend a second in jail. He definitely comes out of this in much much much. Better shape than when he went in which I. I'm very confident. In saying he's the only person to have been anywhere near Towers Financial Santeuil that could say he came out in better shape.

"Being about somebody groping you at a party on the dance floor or something where. You're having consensual consensual sex like Matt Lauer but then there's anal sacs. That wasn't consensual then. You're starting to get into areas where they're sucks here their sex here and pretending pretending that there's not sex here is I think just a detriment to everybody because it's what confuses people because they're like no. I was just corny and I wanted to have sex with you and I didn't really care what you sat and you could argue. The base of that is power or I just grabbed her at the dance floor. Because you are grinding against me and I figured that's what you wanted. Now you're mad okay. Hey maybe the base of that is power but those are sexual situations and part of the what. The problem is in America is that we don't really understand how to talk about socks. We don't really really read each other's signals totally correctly a lot of the time. And Look I'm on my own and not like I'm not GonNa say that that's what everybody else believes. But I've I read a lot about this and I've talked to a lot of sociologists and I think that there's a little bit of a liberal mantra going on that you just have have to say it's about power by it you know when you're starting to really call a lot of things sexual assault. You're getting the the entire spectrum of America's sexual behavior in there and we have to sink kind of from the ground up in a lot of ways but yeah I mean he got blowback for that. Not Because I mean look the Epstein story is about somebody who was a sexual Predator and also a sex addict and was lying through his teeth every minute of almost every day right. He lied about everything like he told one girl that he dated that he was supposed to be the star of the apprentice. Donald trump wasn't going to be the star of the apprentice. And that's what the producers wanted and he introduced the producers to Donald Trump and so I called up Mark Permits Company and they were like no anyway. Anyway I think I mean I think it's about everything like I think that it's about predation. It's about power it's about Saxon it's about you know The Long Con. I mean it was about rolling billionaires. It was about rolling the most beautiful girls in the world. You know it was just a bad was about rolling kids if you can you know just just like who can icon today. And what can I get out of this and the amazing things is the guy died with over five hundred million dollars so you know we still don't know where that money really came from And we don't know the extent of the Khan and you know I don't subscribe to the idea that will never know it I think there'll be some investigative people who will be on this for years and years and years and the impact things and people will start leaking.

"Let's talk about one of Epstein's most pernicious enablers d'alene Maxwell. She played allegedly an integral role in recruiting new women and and girls from Epstein. Laura how much did you know about Gallon Maxwell before you started working on on this story for forensically deconstructing Jeffrey Epstein. Well I mean I knew a little bit. Because she was seen as a British socialite so there was quite a lot of coverage of her in the British media prior to Epstein with her father and Robert Maxwell's untimely death and then she went into hiding for a period of time. And I believe that's that's when she came to America and and she met Epstein. So I understood her to be a socialite the fact that she would go to the opening of anything beer an envelope to get her face scene gene and to be known in those circles and that she was connected with the royal family but no one really knew what she did so I think peeling being back the layers of this case. It's it's been a surprise and it's been very interesting getting to know her life through this Lens Lens and I think that so. Many people are really surprised that a female had her a very key role to play and she does Warren further further investigation. That's for sure given given her behavior. Well can you give me some specifics. About what surprise you other than just her being female. Well I think the she had this close relationship with Epstein began on the the the the basis that she had the access to royalty and to high society to the elite. And you can't just access they circles in the in the UK things operate very differently. You do you do you have the US and them. And you can't just rock up to places where The elite lawns socializing. You have to be there by invitation. And I I think when Epstein met her given his Savan- for understanding people and particularly rich people. He I believe Aleve engaged her using his charm and his magnetism and she saw an opportunity with him given his money and his wealth and she that was something that she aspired to have more of. And I've certainly seen not many times the more money you have the more that you want. Even though she was well looked-after in her father's will will. I think that she presented an opportunity for him in terms of Excess levels and he presented an opportunity for her. But I do believe from from everything I've read and understood that she did for for him and she saw him as being somebody who she could create a life with and she saw him as a romantic interest and and it depends on which reports. Listen see but listening Sir Laura gooden one of the journalists who knew the Maxwell family well all she said the gallon did fall in love with him and I do believe that he manipulated her and that she would do anything and everything to keep him happy. So you do have the power imbalance there. But she was active as a co-conspirator says she was one of the key people who was at the top of the pyramid mid of targeting young girls and even with Virginia Roberts. She spotted her outside the club at Marlow Lago and she was the one. He preached approach. Virginia so she had a massage book in hand and offered her this opportunity to work as a traveling misuse and it was. She threw Virginia Account. That was the one who Targeted her who groomed her and he scored her and talked her through Virginia that it was like training like going to school talked her through every sexual act in order to please Epstein and she was the one who write the script and she was the one who proactively went out on procured cute young girls and women to please in inverted Commas Epstein speaking about Glenn Maxwell her whereabouts are not known a gym Jim Europe former. FBI agent. Could you walk us through step by step what you think the bureau is doing or should be doing to find her. Sure well one of the easiest things to do is to scour social media and the Internet there now they show recognition programs. Is that can do what might have taken a hundred years before in literally seconds to scan anything that she might pop up in now because she has wealth and the ability to travel of she could be staying in place she owns or some friend out of her own and she may not ever be seen in public. Because she's in hiding but you should be talking to all of its legal at Tisch as over the around the World Leila Shays are the offices that the FBI has in the embassies around the world and they cooperate with foreign powers in order to investigate crimes that Americans are involved in those countries and also to liaise between those countries reason the United States so they would be taking advantage of that legal attache program around the globe to put out feelers and APB's for her and they should be a talking to every family member every known friend and associate of hers and and checking out places where she normally is found. I'm sure that. UK is in a position to help in that hunt and I have every reason to believe that they would be if they are interested in it And Laura has told me that they're investigating Prince Andrew's well for his connections to Epstein and and and I believe that because they are involved in that inquiry that they are most likely also helping with Wayne Maxwell inquiry. It's been two half months since his death. Is that an ordinary timescale for nothing to have come up or moved on the law enforcement side. Yeah I don't think you should expect it to be a a very quick process in fact because there are so many moving parts in this investigation because it spans. It's not only the United States of America but the world. These interactions that we're going to have with our legal attache offices. This is with inner poll with foreign governments the fact that he has an offshore island that he owned it took them quite a bit of time. Time to go and search that place because there are jurisdictional issues. There are logistical issues. But I'm confident that the southern other district of New York and the squad that I used to work on in the New York office of the FBI the Crimes Against Children Squad a joint task force between the FBI and the the PD. I'm confident that they will not let this go. But this is something that they will that they have gotten their teeth into and they will fully investigate it. It's just GonNa take time and there are many facets to the investigation as well. I believe the the Mexican ranch still hasn't been searched and as a basement there that some of the stuff is say really. You should be searched. You've then got the goings on in Florida. And I really believed strongly the Sheriff Rick Bradshaw needs to be looked into thoroughly by a the department of law enforcement there. There are allegations that he is threatening Senators and others who are saying that he should be investigated and I cannot understand how he can say that. He has launched an investigation into his sheriff's Office handling of the Epstein case when he was the one making the decisions that sounds really concerning to me and then as the aspects of the tapes the estill outstanding that the detective Jerry Cari they lead investigator in the Epstein case. He had the the please case fall that he sent to John Mark Dugan because he was so concerned about what was happening learning I e the lack of anybody wanting to take forward the investigation bar. His chief Michael Writer and do you think those tapes that John Mark Douglas has who's got all political asylum in Russia will be very instructive about who was going into the house. And who was also involved in child sex trafficking so there are many facets to to the case I certainly new Scotland Yard are investigating the prince. Andrew Connection and the channel. Four dispatches was very very instructive around that and it's not the fact that Virginia Roberts was underage in the UK because our underage or it's it's sixteen to consent and she was seventeen seventeen. It's much more about the child sex trafficking components that needs to be investigated. And of course galet Maxwell was key in recruiting the Julia. Nia Roberts so that's that the area for clarification that new Scotland Yard All looking into currently let's discuss some of Epstein's the victims and what the future holds for them some say that they felt his suicide denied them a chance at justice no matter what might happen in future investigations many have filed civil suits against epsteins conspirators. What role do you think? These civil suits play in sexual assault. Cases Well Lindsey I to say okay. That civil suits are sometimes the only justice that victims can get because the statute.

"Girls. And `and at no point was that being reported because he understood leverage and he paid people off and he did very well matt he loved to live life on the edge so do the the aspect of him being a psychopath the fact that he loves to be in control it would not surprise me if he was using the information and intelligence. I'd say he had on people as leverage to make what he was doing. Go Away or to get further information and intelligence from other people. Now Jim you mentioned you had two who theories about a conscious lenient plea deal. What was the second? Yes the other theory. Is that some named or unnamed person in that non-prosecution agreement was in a position to pull strings at main justice or higher and get his deal done his sentence reduced because there was a lot a lot of back and forth between the locals. Not Being happy with the district. Attorney's office was doing calling in the feds and the feds coming to rescue and the FBI doing an investigation gene and ending up in a fifty plus page indictment against Epstein. But all that seemed to disappear and either as Laura said it was that they totally diminished. These women who were victims of Epstein and they didn't care about that to say and they didn't believe even because they weren't Perfect victims or somebody from above told them that they were no longer able go after this guy and that could be for nefarious reason. Like I said somebody wanted to be protected. Somebody important was connected to him or as I said earlier he was seen as an asset to an intelligence agency and they stepped in. Put the Bosch on this investigation. The Best Gatien. I certainly don't think it's just about the fact that the young girls were vulnerable to and they wouldn't make credible witnesses. I don't think it's about that at all on its own credible. Credible way made that determination. Well I think we're not EXA coster and others said they really wanted to go after him and and the FBI and putting together that fifty three page indictment. It's clear that they found evidence. And the fact that Jay left to wits then connected with Alex coster and we had Knowledge of these breakfast meetings at Judie Brown uncovered and that the breakfast meetings were happening outside of federal buildings in a hotel and left a whitsand. Alex across debase worked together previously law firm and then suddenly the deal changes and it took some time to hammer out the non-prosecution agreements I know the Aleksei Costas said that it had nothing to do with these meetings. But I'm afraid on the time line that doesn't make any sense at all so it has to be that there is a bigger threat it has to be that there are other people that would be named. And that's why I said it was an in no one's interest for that little black book to emerge of the either Epstein had elaine maxwell x while because of the names that were in it and therefore Epstein being sir do a deal in terms of him being arrested again And it being clear that the system was taking it seriously and of course now we've had the revelations from Dr Michael Bayden About his views news on what happened Epstein and him saying that he believes that it was a homicide. I think you have to. It's not just about conspiracy theory but you a half to take those aspects very seriously. There is something rotten in the state of Denmark that goes without saying in this case thinking about the bigger threat that might have pressed upon a pasta and the Justice Department to enable this deal that being threat is also the center of probably the most the well known conspiracy theory. And that's about Epstein's death Recently a private pathologist hired by teens brother said that a broken bone epsteins neck suggests jests homicide rather than suicide. I'm Jim based on your experience. And what you know about this case. Is there anything to that claim. Well Michael Baden is very the experienced and very well respected medical examiner and he actually said that there were three bones broken in epsteins neck. And typically you see that in one third of the strangulation death. Bad our autopsy. But you typically see in the ones where there's manual strangulation versus ligature strangulation. It does happen sometimes in ligature strangulation. But it doesn't doesn't happen all the time so it is an anomaly and it needs to be investigated Baden also claims that there is a deep ruse in the center of Epstein's throat now. Yeah I didn't see whatever ligature reportedly he hung himself with. But it's rare for Ligature to make a deep bruise in that particular particular area without also making a significant bruising on the side so that could be more consistent with somebody wrapping their hands around around epsteins neck and pushing in with the thumbs so again a real reason why this should be investigated and when they investigate they you should do in equivocal death investigation. This is an investigation when you don't know what the manner of death is. You may know the cause of death expectation but the manner of Death Homicide Susa natural accident or undetermined has to be determined through a deep investigation that includes a psychological like logically autopsy of the victim. And all the forensic evidence and all the circumstantial evidence surrounding the death of the discovery of the body. I think that should be done to starting adding to that. The original report by the pathologist said that the cause of death was hanging the man Asu aside pending further study and so it was not a conclusion Outright that this was a suicide and I don't know what happened with that pending further. Study but I think when you add in other behavioral facets and they are both the prison gods being asleep at the same time which is highly unusual. The cameras not working the fact that the cellmate was moved the Father Epstein said the previous previous cellmate. Hoods tried to kill him the fact that he had spent the day with his lawyers before because he was playing paying Lewis on rotation and they said said that he was not of suicidal idealization or suicidal mind and the fact that his brother Mark said that he's not the type to commit suicide an adding in the fact that Jim and I know well no with psychopaths. I'm in psychopathy. It's very rare for them to be suicidal because they are so arrogant narcissistic steak and Epstein did think that he was still going to get bail. That's what he was signed his lawyers. So I think when you add those aspects and those components I I have to say that it really does need to be properly reinvestigated doubt. Michael Bayden who was present at the time has made that conclusion in and I think now is significant.

"Let's talk about the first time. He was caught Alexander Acosta when he was. US Attorney a signed off on an incredibly lenient plea agreement for Epstein a prosecutors cost office work closely with epsteins legal team to hammer out. That deal you're a former former prosecutor. Jim is any of that typical. No it's absolutely atypical. In fact the only time that prosecutors typically engage in in in entering an agreement that reduces someone sentence is if that person cooperates with law enforcement and that means naming all their co Oh conspirators and testify agreeing to testify against them and the cooperation and the extent of the leniency. Comes comes from the extent of the cooperation. I've never before heard of any kind of prosecution agreement that says not only do do not have to name the other people but you do not have to give evidence against them. You do not have to help us in investigation against them and in fact we will make them immune from prosecution. I have never ever before heard that happening. In a court of law in the United States of America it it is absolutely the opposite of what should happen and this makes me believe that there was an intervention at a much higher level for much higher purpose. And I don't know the nature of that and Lindsey. I could tell you I'll talk to you about that if you want and and we go into. I don't know if you WANNA go into that now. We're going to it later. But I have two theories about what it might be. We will get those certainly but first Laura. Do you think this leniency Says anything at large about the justice. Department's handling of sexual assault cases in general. I think it does. I think the very fat Steve Hoffenberg goes to prison for the Ponzi schemes aimed. For ten years I went financial. Crimes committed a very serious sentence meted out but when we talk about sexual assault when we talk about stalking talking when we talk about domestic violence for some reason the criminal justice system becomes a very bad parent and the wrong messages ascent out and I also think it wasn't just asked about the non prosecution agreement. It was the very fact that Aleksic Koster had vow to take on line and put together. There was a fifty three page indictment. Whiteman that then gets reduced to a charge of sex with a sex worker and thirteen month. time in the county jail which should be eighteen months and the fact that Alex Kosta sealed that non prosecution agreement as well and the fact that they did not notify the victims which they had a duty to do and in fact they went out of their way to move courts and they said to the victims they were still investigating. You said it wasn't just a case of what happens about how it happened. And I think that Stu we do not see victims particularly female victims of Domestic Violence Island Sexual Assault Child Sex trafficking stalking. We did not see these cases being taken seriously but this is you know. This is really a case on on steroids in in many senses. And I'd like to add to that. But the federal government typically slams the hammer down on sex offenses dances against children. So this case stands out as an aberration because what we would normally do a case when I was investigator or a profile. We're on a case was it was a local case and the state crime did not hack a big enough sentence. We also charge them federally and put them him away for a very long time. That's why said Epstein should've been under. These circumstances should have been put in prison for the rest of his life instead. He takes vacation where he's out of jail every day all day. Where when he's in jail a lot of times he spends that in a in a luxury lawyers room as opposed to in a prison cell and then he gets to pay the salaries of the cops who were supposedly watching him and many times they drop them off at his home unsupervised and anybody could be there and he could be doing anything including continuing to sexually victimized mayes girls so this is again? I can't reiterate enough. How much different this is than any other case I've ever seen over the last forty years that I've been involved with law enforcement? Well let's return to perhaps the reasons why it was different. There are a lot of rumors conspiracy theories surrounding Epstein. You mentioned that you have some ideas about where this leniency came from. I'll just let you tell me your two theories okay Well the first is that he provided evidence that was not put on the record in other words. Those kinds of deals are only done when there is actual cooperation and I have to assume that since a Kosta had a fifty plus page indictment prepared that it was is filled with good solid corroborated evidence from all the young girls and women that came forward the only time I have ever seen seen someone get a sweetheart deal like this is when they are actually involved in something that has to do with national security if if there is a national security nexus those laws override all the other laws in the United States. And for example there have been mumblings about Jeffrey Epstein. Having connections to the Massad I would not put it past him to have manipulated himself into a situation where he offered to give evidence or information mation about a foreign power that he's able to connect with because of his money and wealth and ability to travel the world. I would not put it past in to to have talked his way into a situation where the. US Federal Government believed that he was a national asset set and therefore gave him a sweetheart deal. In this case. I think it would if that's actually what happened. It's horrendous terrific. It is abusive system. And I think it's one more check in the evidence box that Jeffrey Epstein will do whatever it takes in order to who continue to offend to continue to use his position power and authority and money to offend against young girls. Now what you're suggesting here though And it corroborates a rumor surrounding Epstein. That he's some sort of spy an intelligence agent. It doesn't sound like you buy it. Sounds like you're indicating meaning that he just talked his way into it. Is there anything to this rumor that he is a spy. Well here's the thing when we typically think of spies you're talking about the people who actually worked for our intelligence agency but actually agents that they go out and hire people that they get information information from or similar to criminal informants like in the criminal world in the FBI or the police department. We develop informants who who are involved in criminal activity and get information from them and we sometimes pay them for the information or we sometimes give them a better deal if they cooperate in case the same thing is true but with different labels in the intelligence world what I'm saying is Epstein. Ken Say that he has access to these people Epstein. Ken Purport to have really important information but he may not have come through with anything or he may have. Just been in giving disinformation from those people. What I'm saying is not that? He was a spy but that he was a paid informant or intelligence agencies and for that he got protected. I think it's important. It's not a stretch too far what Jim is saying. Because is when we think about Lord Robert Maxwell he also gave information and intelligence to intelligence services as that whole question mark about whether he fell fell off his boat or whether he was killed. His daughter d'alene Maxwell thought that he was murdered because of the secrets that he was sharing now Epstein fully knew how how to exploit people he was in the business of getting leverage on reports and we saw clear examples where the clearly that was leverage bridge there with Vanity Fair and Graydon Carter for example where a story was going to be run and then suddenly following a meeting with Epstein the story about his abuse. It is no longer within keyboards story. So he had tapes he had digital tapes that were set up in every room he brought in people like Prince. Andrew and there was a channel four dispatches the Princeton the pitiful and again with those situations it's in no no one's interests for Epstein to testify about his. Little black book will the secrets that he knew. But I also just want to underline the fact act the the Patriarchy was well at work as well and the Patriarchy amount privilege entitlement. The the fact that these women and girls were objectified defied and the everyone seemed to be okay with that and I mean that in the sense that from pile the pilots to the drivers to the staff off people turned a blind eye and he brought in women his secretaries and people like La Maxwell to recruits further.

Despite the media's new detention Epstein doesn't change his ways he's still surrounding himself with young women and he's still dodging law enforcement every ninety days Epstein host to renew his sex offender status with the NYPD failure to do so could land him back in prison a judge tells him much but he ignores her Epstein it be bothered to follow the law he never shows up first mandatory sex offender check INS not once in eight years it's yet another example of Epstein rejecting the label he's been given he's a Niff- maker after all and prefers people know him by another title meanwhile Epstein Ramps up his philanthropic pursuits he launches several websites touting himself as a science philanthropist these oddly low budget websites also feature pictures of at Stein with prominent scientists like physicist Stephen Hawking Epstein churns out press releases about his work funding leading scientists some of whom he's actually given money to and some of whom he hasn't he even pays a contributor to Forbes to post an article calling him quote one of the largest backers of cutting edge science the article makes no mention of obscene sex offender status the official position of many major universities and research institutions is that Epstein is blacklisted from giving donations but reality is much different the writer Anand Cutie Dot says leaders elite universities knew exactly who have seen was an the crimes he pled to they accepted his money anyway because I think the public actually deserves to know how this elite backrub chain of self protection functions and here's a group of people I gotta say mostly men who talk a great deal about changing the world making the world a better place inventing things but are fundamentally functioning as a cartel to keep women out of these spaces to quit environment that is hostile to women and to fundamentally used these institutions the cell greenwashing services and whitewashing services to predators and people who had harm society defrauded society it's the summer of two thousand fifteen on the campus of mit in Cambridge Massachusetts. Once again Epstein is in the news thanks to a new lawsuit from one of his accusers but at scenes at mit as a VIP guest I'll be a secret won the MIT media lab has in accepting his money anyway for years they go to great lengths to make sure his donations are marked as anonymous and secretly the MIT staff referred to Epstein as he must not be named when he arrived on Campus Epstein has two young Eastern European looking women in tow these assistant stand outside glass-walled room has epsteen takes meetings with Mit Faculty speaking about the Young Women Epstein brought with him an Mit fundraising staffer later tells the New Yorker quote we literally had a conversation about how on the off chance that they were not there by choice we could maybe help them it turns out that MIT was so willing to look the other way because Epstein gave so much according to the New Yorker Mit credited Epstein with securing millions in donations with the universities are selling one by one is like little fragments of social context that q other people casual early passing Louis to think that I must be okay okay and if you have done with Jeffrey Epstein did it's hard to overstate the value of that service some of the money donated was epsteins but Epstein is also credited with directing donations from other billionaires including two million dollars from perhaps the most miss billionaire of all Bill Gates I don't know yet what Bill Gates is connection to Epstein was with this giving some connection apparently but right the even the fact of any connection between that miserable dastardly man and the worlds most legendary philanthropist even the fact that their name is on the same piece of deeper and some printout is an enormous boost of tremendous use for someone like Jeffrey up see the New York Times has since reported that the Microsoft founder had pretty friendly relationship with Epstein visiting his house flying on his plane and telling colleagues that Epstein's lifestyle was quote kind of intriguing but steam wants more than reputational whitewashing from his relationship with scientists and universities he also wants them to admire him he hosts frequent dinners for scientists before and after his conviction he likes to tell them his pet theories he tends to think his own ideas or a lot more interesting than evidence based one and if the conversation starts bore him he changes the subject to his only other interest shouting what does that got to do with Pussy one night in two thousand and ten he invites a prominent scientists over for dinner he also invites an aspiring model and one of her friends he doesn't make any attempt to mix the conversations originally he'll turn to his left and asked the scientists about his research then he'll turn to his right and asks the model to show him her portfolio mid dinner another young woman comes into the room and gives epstein shoulder massage while he holds court some of the scientists Epstein entertains don't bat an eye this behavior one of them the assist Lawrence Krauss says he spent plenty of time with Epstein who was never bothered by what he saw he always has women ages nineteen twenty-three around him but I've never seen anything else so as a scientist my presumption is that whatever the problems were I would believe him over other people don't feel tarnished in any way by relationship with Jeffrey fuel raised by the universities they they they're often have you know high social status or or interesting or you know but they don't necessarily always have a lot of money some do some don't and they like the jets and they like the fancy dinners and so everybody is in on it and everybody is along for the ride and everybody is willing to suppress the fact they're sitting next to a guy a convicted child rapist at one meeting at Harvard Epstein tells the group that he doesn't like the the of helping the poor with food or medicine because fighting poverty and famine will result overpopulation he has his own ideas about what the global population it looked like he dreams of bringing women in Groups of Twenty Two Zorro ranch his ten thousand Acre property in New Mexico during their stay he'll inseminate them with his berm once they've given birth he'll bring in a new group of twenty women to be impregnated the cycle will continue in F- scenes mind the key to improving the human race this is more Epstein DNA in the gene pool and if the baby ranch doesn't work out he has another idea he wants to cryogenically freeze mortality.

"This is episode to poor smart and desperate. It's the spring of nineteen sixty nine at Lafayette High School in South Brooklyn. Jeffrey Epstein is sixteen years old a photo in his senior yearbook shows him in his graduation gown shoulders slouched posing for the camera but looking like his mind is elsewhere another photo taken around the same time shows him shirtless and cutoff jeans his feet in the sand end of Coney Island beach he has a wild mess of hair and a pudgy torso and again he slashed over the young man is a Whiz at math and science and a member the School Band Epstein and his family live in coney island in a cluster of middle class homes surrounded by the flat grey Bluewater of the Brooklyn seaside countless news outlets have reported that Epstein's father. Seymour worked for the Parks Department and on Seymour's death certificate. The Parks Department is listed as his employer but the truth is see more only worked there for three months in nineteen sixty almost like everything else in epsteins origin story even his father. There is a mysterious footnote. After I've seen graduates he attends Cooper Union for two years then he enrolls at New York University but he drops ops out in the summer of seventy four without earning a degree but this is where he makes his first leap up the New York Social Ladder at twenty one years old he lands the job teaching math and physics at one of the most prestigious private high schools in the country where he'll leave a strong impression on the children of New York's elite and their fathers bothers. It's the fall of nineteen seventy five at the Dalton School on Manhattan's Upper East side. The school looks unassuming from the outside. Naas tier brick building windows studied with air conditioners. What inside classrooms are filled with children of celebrities and captains happens industry between classes. Mr Epstein mingles with students. He's got a magnetism now alluded him in his high school days. He'll later be photographed. Graf the school yearbook wearing a suit jacket and a shirt with a flair dot collar unbuttoned revealing his chest and a gold chain Peter Branch who is ahead of the upper school at the time remembers when Epstein arrived with a person like Epstein who could teach physics and higher level. Math skills feels that are still in rare supply in the school world and was clearly ability to convince people that he was something that he wasn't. It's not surprising to me that he was hired. Many students like Mr Epstein on top of teaching math and physics. He also coaches the school's math team. He even performed for the spring musical with the school paper noting that Mr Epstein proved himself to be the ivory showman on the piano Epstein doesn't behave like the other teachers. He attends a party to students house. Were students are drinking. He flirts with girls in the hallways. Rumors circulate eight about Epstein's relationship with one girl in particular. He's never accused of any crimes with the New York. Times will lay report that a few students were quote so discomforted by a close relationship he had with one of their female peers at one of them had raised the issue to a school administrator students at Dalton. Come from some of the wealthiest families always in the country. They're parents aren't easily impressed but Mr Epstein makes an impression. It's through Dalton that Epstein manages to meet ACE Greenberg. A LEGEND ON WALL STREET TURNS OUT THAT EPSTEIN is exactly the sort of man that ace Greenberg likes to recruit like Epstein Greenberg comes from modest means. He arrived in New York looking for work during the recession of nineteen forty nine. I finally did get a job as a clerk bear stearns and was thirty two fifty to your week. That didn't go very far then and I know the prices were cheaper than than they are. Now I can tell you that I still didn't go very far. It didn't go any place still in his early. The fifties Greenberg's risen through the ranks of the investment bank bear stearns and Greenberg's background dictates hiring philosophy. He's on the lookout for what he calls halls. PSD's employees who are poor smart and desperate to get rich dreamer thinks Epstein is an ideal higher for bear stearns for Longtime Epstein Origin Story was that Dalton opened his eyes to a world of boundless wealth influence and power so he quit the teaching engage and with talent despair he went out to make his mark and his millions on Wall Street but the head of the Upper School Peter Branch says Epstein didn't take the job ob seriously that he was falling short of Dalton standards so branch asked him to leave in one thousand nine seventy six Epstein starts at bear stearns as a junior assistant floor trader what he's talented and he quickly moved up the ladder within just four years. Epstein's limited partner at bear stearns most twenty-seven-year-old college dropouts would consider themselves on a glide path to comfort and security already not Epstein. He abruptly leaves bear stearns a year later. He'll tell people it was because he wanted more that he wanted to start his own firm arm. He wanted to help the super rich quote understand the power responsibility and the burden of their money but once again that's not the whole truth. It's April fool's Day nineteen eighty-one just three weeks after Epstein resigned from bear stearns he's being questioned by the Securities Securities and Exchange Commission about allegations of insider trading around a mineral company called the Saint Joe Minerals Corporation the SEC investigators starting on obscene sir. You aware that certain rumors may have been circulating around your firm in connection with your reason for leaving the firm. I'm aware there were many rumors. Were the rumors you heard nothing to do with Saint Joe. Has Anyone indicated to you in anyway either directly or indirectly in words or substance that your compensation Asian for this past year or any future money's coming from bear stearns we'll be contingent upon you're not divulging information to the Securities and Exchange Commission no uh the questioning goes on but the SEC never brings charges against Epstein or anyone else at Bear Stearns Epstein later admits that part of why he he left bear stearns was over illegal loan to an old friend. He claims he didn't know it was illegal but that it cost him his shot at becoming a full partner nevertheless when Epstein leaves he still gets his annual bonus of one hundred thousand dollars but the boss doesn't last long and soon soon Epstein is reportedly broke. He needs a new plan. Jeffrey Epstein stands in front of a building in midtown. Manhattan called the Villard arthouse. It's as long as a city block and has touches of an Italian Palazzo once the residence of a railroad tycoon. Epstein's new business partner set him up with an office at this coveted address. He's paying Epstein. Twenty five thousand dollars a month to serve as his business consultant his new business partner. You're is named Steven Hoffenberg the head of Towers Financial Together Epstein Hoffenberg come up with a new business venture they I take money from retirees on the pretense of safe investments and then use them to keep their own aggressive business ventures afloat a when the investments nosedive all four hundred sixty million of the retirees money is lost in the wreckage. Hoffenberg gets indicted and ends up in prison prosecutors though do nothing to pursue Epstein further to this day. Hoffenberg claims not to understand why there's no explanation for not charging. That's Chrissy should have been drugged so Epstein skates out of one of the largest Ponzi schemes in American history and back to running his advisory firm J Epstein and Co f seen boasts that it has only one rule billionaires only if you only have nine hundred ninety nine into your name take a hike but if you have a Billion Dollars J Epstein and company will happily shoulder the burden of managing your wealth which leads to very fruitful relationship with the only billionaire he'll ever publicly confirm as a client of J Epstein and company billionaire who turned a single clothing store into a retail retail empire that would include Abercrombie and Fitch and Victoria's secret.

"The following episode contains descriptions of sexual violence and may not be suitable for everyone. Please see the episode notes for more information about support services. It's November nineteen ninety ninety three Steven Hoffenberg in his late forties with coughed hair and Brown cheeks puff out when he grins Hoffenberg is known around New York as a quintessential central Wall Street master of the universe recently he bailed out the financially troubled tabloid the New York Post. He turns up at society functions and he's rented a whole floor and trump tower. He made his fortune running. A company called towers financial which bought up debts like unpaid medical bills and got the debtors to pay them at its peak towers had twelve hundred employees. It was worth an estimated ninety five million dollars but Hoffenberg business tactics haven't always been above board the SEC's been investigating him for years and now they have enough evidence to put together a case today. Hoffenberg Sandberg sits inside a grand jury chamber in Chicago With Towers Financial they allege Hoffenberg operated one of the biggest financial frauds in US history. Cheating Investors Astor's out of more than four hundred fifty million dollars. Hoffenberg is planning to cooperate with the government and tell them more about his scheme and also about the man he claims engineered it his business partner. Jeffrey Epstein offenburg takes his seat before the jury the prosecutor your approaches and asks Hoffenberg to walk them through the plan he and Epstein devised step by step. Hof Bergen Epstein targeted people who didn't have much money me retirees widows the disabled and promised healthy return on their investment but instead they use the money to cover losses in other risky business steals and hundreds of thousands of people lost their life savings. It was a classic Ponzi scheme again and again. The prosecutor asked who designed designed the scam and the complex stock manipulations it required. Hoffenberg always answers with the same name. Jeffrey Epstein was the person in charge of the transactions actions. Epstein was trying to manipulate the price of the stock. Yes you didn't object that Sir no Hoffenberg Hoffenberg is sentenced for the scheme and serves nearly two decades in prison to this day. Hoffenberg still says the same thing he said to prosecutors back the he was the mastermind Ralian Wall Street executive that expert in what was taking place at the company that was doing the criminal misconduct he was breathing fast told me that he participating everything with twenty four four seven but when reporters from the Washington Post later look at this case they find something strange even though Hoffenberg grand jury testimony gave detailed tailed damning evidence that Epstein was deeply involved in the scheme epsteins involvement vanishes from the case and while Hoffenberg went to prison for Years Epstein was never charged today. Hoffenberg claims that the money Epstein made from their Ponzi scheme became the foundation nation for his fortune but digging into the origins of Jeffrey Epstein's wealth is more complicated than that where his money came from is still a question reporters are trying to the answer but a few things are certain federal investigators questioned Epstein. About Shady financial deals yet he was never indicted and his fortunes rose when as a young man on Wall Street he was able to charm and win the trust of a few corporate titans including in particular one lonely billionaire.

"On our first episode owed we spoke with Roberta Kaplan a lawyer for one of Epstein's victims and right after that show. She filed a lawsuit against Epstein State but she told us. It's not going to be easy to get that money. Two days before Epstein died he rewrote his will to put his money in the US Virgin Islands so that makes things very very very complicated for my client in the many many other women in her position on the Virgin Islands is a obvious small jurisdiction listen. I'm quite sure they've never really handled anything like this before. We wanted to understand this better so our producer. Adam Davidson has been calling around the Virgin Urgen islands. what it looks like. They're probably looks different than Brooklyn. Oh well I'm actually in Dallas. Right now. I I last September so I can avoid the hurricanes and tropical storms but normally it's it's beautiful. It's green and lush. It's pretty mountainous and then you have the blue blue water. It's a beautiful place to live. That's that's Robert eberhardt. WHO's a lawyer on the most populous of the fifty or so Virgin Islands Saint Thomas and he's not just a lawyer on Saint Thomas. I he's one of five. They're only five lawyers on the island who specialized in wills and probate according to the local Bar Association and the people people processing those probate cases Carolyn pursell is one of them and then Henry car the other magistrate so Oh really and truly those are the two different people that would be assigned the case where there's only two people who handle all the probate cases. Yes Oh so in those two magistrates also handle all of the islands traffic cases. All of their small claims they are ridiculously busy. Abra Heart always tells clients don't go through the Virgin Island courts for wills and probate. It takes forever. I have one case where my client is. An air air to an estate. That's not particularly complicated and it's been going on for. I think eight years now and it's just just now. They're getting to the stage where they're going to have a final adjudication wow so eight or nine years and it could be many years more before any monies and he's actually distributed. Yes and that's a not a especially complicated case so how does not compare to Jeffrey the case the US Virgin Islands are a territory of the US sort of like a state with its own legislature and local courts. Although oh Robert says it's also a lot like a small town there are a hundred thousand people in all of the islands around half of them on Saint Thomas and he's pretty sure he he knows nearly all of the lawyers there which wouldn't be hard. There are fewer than three hundred ever heard says the culture of laws pretty laid back people on an island as he calls it often avoid the courts when someone dies you'll have a case where the grandparents and then the parents passed away and the grandchildren have been living on the property for you know thirty years and they haven't gotten around a pro-beijing it yet and so then you have incredibly complicated she way so that it might be multiple generations and then some like second second cousins start saying wait no. I own this land no no I on this land and up and they have to go back like multiple generations to figure out wow because nobody wants to bother even with a regular taste right and that that happens quite frequently but that makes things do get get to court even more complicated by the time something is before a magistrate it might involve a complex stew of family history with decades old poorly remembered verbal agreements ever heard says it's hard to imagine the Epstein case coming into this system. It would be a huge complex case in New York. A city filled filled with thousands of lawyers used a billion dollar disputes during a half billion dollar mess of complex finances and hundreds of competing interests into into a system that can barely handle simple will is unimaginable. Eberhardt isn't even sure where all the incoming lawyers would stay. There's not a lot lot of folktales rooms right. Now is the hurricane twenty seventeen like the Ritz still isn't open again. You know the Marriott partially open there are also also some basic fairness questions. Jeffrey Epstein was deeply embedded in the business and power structures of the US Virgin Islands. Everybody knew about Epstein East pretty notorious like I never saw him around and I was surprised at how many businesses involved yeah so for instance is office. Manager of one of his businesses was cecile the young who was the wife of the former governor to governors ago John Dion so the guy owns two islands. He owns several big businesses. This is on the Big Island. He's employed a lot of the most powerful people on all these islands. Obviously he knows when he makes a will oh putting all his money in the Virgin Islands. He's GonNa make it almost impossible for his victims ever to get at that money. I mean it's going to go on forever. A I could see it being a twenty year probate matter insisting the complexities so some people think that a special master will be appointed which could make the whole thing go more quickly but Eberhardt after he reconsidered thought twenty years was not even the right estimate I an optimistic number. Epstein placed his money in a trust which means we don't know who he named as his heirs but over the past few years he's given money any to the people who most helped him in his sexual crimes and he was obsessed with keeping money away from his victims so it seems reasonable to think that that is trust will reward co conspirators and encourage them to keep silent and a well written trust could provide them money right away long before for the will and probate are finalized so the longer the case drags out the better it is for Epstein side and the worse it is for the victims but there there is another possibility a much quicker solution. I would argue the government would be entitled to every dime. That's Paul Peletier. He was a federal prosecutor in Miami Emmy for decades and he spent a lot of time taking money away from criminals he eventually became head of fraud for the Department of Justice and he's also our legal analyst he he says there's a way for ABC's victims to avoid the Virgin Islands avoid the whole process of wills and probate. If Epstein got his money illegally they might not be technically his money. It might be the US government's money so then his will is irrelevant. The money isn't his in the United States. uh-huh tainted money is any money that is the proceeds of crime so you have a fraud case and you steal money from people any money that you steal from people is taking money from the government's perspective. This statue of limitations never applies to tainted money wants to government has obtained a judgment against that money if Epstein got his money as part of a crime and the key here is the crime that was prosecuted successfully by the government. His money can be seized. Even if that crime occurred decades ago Paul has dealt with this before he went after a drug trafficker named Julio Cesar Nassar David who is one one.
