"jeffrey free epstein" Discussed on Truth and Lies: Jeffrey Epstein
"I can think I want to say I will lead alert or as I. I'm Mark Rim and today on truth in Lies Jeffrey Free Epstein Part One of two part look at Epstein's growing empire and the growing scale of his alleged abuse in this episode. We traveled leveled to New Mexico to Epstein's Zorro Ranch and hear how Epstein would allegedly use the promise of Higher Education to Groom Unsuspecting in Girls Chapter Six Zorro ranch. What I understood was that Maria had had a very wealthy boss sort of at the time who was working for who was sort of larger than life? You'll remember any farmer from our second episode. She's the younger sister of artist. Maria farmer she first met Epstein in December of Nineteen Ninety. I five when he paid for her to come to New York and visit her sister. She was sixteen years old at the time and says during the trip Epstein began touching touching her as they sat in a theater watching a movie he just sort of like put his hand thou like for for me to hold his hand and I remember in my hand being sweaty because I was very nervous about what why he was doing Matt and as we've heard she'd returned home from New York and not tell anyone anyone about what happened. I was reluctant to tell Maria because I didn't want to upset her but I also was afraid that it would be detrimental. Insult to her in some way into her career. But once back in Arizona Anne would find marinas boss continuing to insert himself in her life life Jeffrey Epstein according to the family continued to call Annie's mom and express an interest in advancing her educational prospects and sending her to an Ivy League. School that's ABC News senior producer. James Hill our lead reporter on this podcast. Who's been covering Jeffrey Epstein? Since two thousand fourteen and has spent years speaking with victims of Epstein's abuse to the farmer family at this point Jeffrey Epstein is the boss of one of their daughters. He's a very wealthy man who seems to have the best interests of their daughters at heart. And you'll remember Janice Swain Anne Marie as Mother. Anne was very serious about her studies. Always Epstein Steen would suggest some ways to help Annie get into a good college and a wanted very much to go to an Ivy League school and she worked very hard throughout route high school and at one point Epstein told Janice about an opportunity for any at his ranch in New Mexico. Eight brought up the fact that he thought it'd it'd be beneficial to me to go on some kind of international trip as a way of making myself a more appealing candidate for giving into college and he had and some ideas about that and we should probably be in touch about it Janice says Epstein told her there would be a group of students there all of whom were students. He was helping get into college college and offering to pay for trips abroad. Jeffrey I call me to ask me if any could come to their ranch in Santa Fe because is a genus. Says she wasn't sold on the idea at first but she felt more comfortable that there would be a number of other students there and when Epstein told told her that his wife Glenn Maxwell would be there too and he said he thought it would be a great opportunity for all of them to get together. Talk about where they were going wing and what they helped to gain from these trips including adding this to information for their college applications one of the things. That's important to stress is that Jeffrey Epstein insisted to the farmer family particularly Annie's mother. You're the Glenn Chaperone this weekend of high achieving students. Who Were there at Jeffrey Epstein's ranch? We assume that he was married because when I asked him about his wife he responded about Gallon of course as they later find out. That wasn't the case as far as the farmers understood. Glenn Maxwell was Jeffrey Epstein's wife. They were a couple who had interest in advancing the educational and artistic careers of young women. Any would arrive Dr in New Mexico in the spring of Nineteen ninety-six arrived at the airport and there was a man with a little sign. Had My name on it and you know a the driver. It was the first time I'd ever experienced something like that so it really stood out. The ranch was not in Santa Fe is really in the middle of nowhere. The Gallon Steel Basin is just one of my favorite places in the world just pure Western so much of New Mexico's rugged narrow narrowed but this is real ranch country grass juicer out everywhere you look and just openness was zigzag horizons in every direction ruction of forty minute car ride heading southeast from Santa Fe takes you into the heart of what's known as the Gals Stale Basin set eh sprawling desert sparsely dotted with CACTI juniper trees and low grass the dramatic landscape almost sounds mythical most most people probably don't know what hogs back but there are these originals with rocks for Truden at the top this whole natural wall of walk is like a spine and it looks like a dragon you know and sort of undulating as long the landscape. This is Jean Peach. He's benefit for in New Mexico for decades and his book. Making a hand growing up cowboy in New Mexico focuses on ranching life in the state Galileo offers seemingly infinite horizons of stunning running Western landscape. And it has its fair share of ghost stories. The Gal Sterile Basin is home to Pueblo Indian communities it was became one of the gateways for the rating trots to pass through. So there's a I think a centuries-old centuries-old history of of Indian warfare in the Gal Stale Basin a self-described psychic told me one time several years ago. They can't even go through there because ghost or or everywhere from all the battles and it's here just outside the small town of Gala Stale you that Epstein would build a multimillion dollar mansion on a crest of land overlooking the valley. It was called Zoro ranch. The the irony of anything named Azzaro being owned by Jeffrey Epstein is as sharp as Zoro's Blade Zoro Spanish for Fox was the beloved literary character popularized in TV shows and movies a dashing sword wielding masked masked vigilante who protected innocent victims against corrupt officials an evil villains eliminates. But you can call me but in New Mexico. GEICO Zoro actually has a different meaning in Vernacular a Zorro actually means Fox but in New Mexico it means skunk. Maybe he didn't know I don't think he did everywhere Epstein lived. He did his best to maximize his privacy in Palm Beach. The home is hidden behind behind hedgerows and security gates and see on that clip over there at the mansion. Oh Wow we. On the distance that's correct but Zorro ranch is arguably his most private thanks to its massive size. That insulated epsteins home more than a mile from the nearest public road. We saw it firsthand when investigative producer Chris Francesconi and I visited there late last year. Just urged right on top of average the only structure you can see any direction for miles. The location of Epstein's chains mansion as my God. It's right on the edge of the drop off to the Gosto base and the views from that area is is positively spectacular and totally private only airplane. Only a flyover will get you close and there's no no way for traveling salesmen. No Way to just sort of chance by its very private. I think it's the perfect place to to place. The mansion without view Schleicher thrown. The ranch looks like the backdrop of old the western movies and in fact many films have been shot in the area around. Epstein's Ranch Gov stay or has a film so you can see. See it from the road or if you know what. You're looking for and the numerous westerns shot there. So overwrought wild wild watch. Kevin Costner's wilder bapu looser with renee. Zellweger number of films shot out here and it's obvious to see why because this is just completely untapped land. Nothing has changed or doesn't appear that anything's changed in hundreds of years. But what is his most. Private residence is also ironically one of his most conspicuous as we've mentioned epsteins main house sits right on top of a Ridge and at night. It's like a beacon on top of a hill according to a neighbor who lives in the area around his ranch. It was most notable at night when the lights were shining on it inside now. That's when it was really an eyesore and I mean it's very much out of place it's an ostentatious gigantic really ugly building that nobody particularly likes to see like that. And you're going.
"jeffrey free epstein" Discussed on MSNBC Rachel Maddow (audio)
"Chief Justice John Roberts gaveling to a close today's session of the impeachment trial of president trump. Thanks for being with us for our special coverage of the ongoing impeachment trial of the president. I'm Rachel Maddow here at. MSNBC headquarters in New York. I'm joined here on set by my friend Chris Hayes the host of all in here on MSNBC. Also by Claire mccaskill former United States senator from the Great State of Missouri Chuck. Rosenberg is here from senior official at the Justice Department and the FBI. We're also joined joined by our friend Eugene Robinson Pulitzer Prize winner from the Washington. Post thank you all for being here tonight. It's good to have you here. We are closing comments. There from White House counsel PAT SIP Colonie proposing a golden rule for impeachments and asking Americans to join hands and imagine a time when there's no more impeachment. There's an oddly I felt to me like he was joking but I don't think that he was that followed a lengthy presentation from eleanor edits. Which of course has been a highly anticipated part of this trial? Obviously because of Alan Dershowitz as recent association with Jeffrey Epstein and his involvement in Jeffrey Epstein's Legal Legal Defense Professor Dershowitz was seen as a very controversial choice and has spent a long time since he was named to be part of this defense defending himself in terms of his involvement with Jeffrey Free Epstein but his presentation is sort of professorial presentation Tonight on the floor of the Senate was that presidents can only be impeached impeached. For things that are violations of criminal which he acknowledged is something that The Legal Pantheon does not concede lead. He sort of finished with by saying I do my own research. I won't go with the crowd here but it is heading into this chuckled. Put this to you I I. I would not have thought that the president can't be impeached for something that isn't a crime would have been sort of a hill. They were going to die on here. It seemed a little bit odd to me. Rachel you know He. He admitted that he changed his mind. That's fine right. People change their minds. We shouldn't hold that against him but he went from the great weight of legal authority and analysis two distinctly minority position and in fact one of the people that he now stands in opposition to in holding that you need a crime or crime like behavior in order to impeach so fella named Alexander Hamilton. But something to say about this. Federal is sixty five you know. The framers could not articulate every bad thing president would do or could do in order to be removed and so they left it somewhat vague and they left the sole power to determine that in the house and the Senate and as Dershowitz himself admitted tonight he is in a minority position. We heard a lot of very thoughtful. Academics in the House explained precisely why abuse of power and trust ought ought to be impeachable. And I think that's where the argument line. It is remarkable that this is really the apex of their case. I mean they're doing this in primetime on Monday. They spent almost no time they. They spent almost none of their hours on Saturday so they could finish up with Dershowitz in prime time on Monday night they think is the big audience. They're going to get and it was the sort of novel when experimental legal theory that peach. It isn't what you think it is and therefore we should never use it a stark me. I mean you're experienced prosecutor in lawyer as well as being a former. US Senator Senator Out of the strike. I don't think Harvard's happy tonight. You know Harvard holds a place in the legal community is one where the academics dimick's are excellent and the professors are thoughtful. This really while I was like a pretzel he was trying to take what he was dealt. And twist it and turn it into a way I mean. Think about how absurd this. Imagine if President took office and this was written in one of the blogs over the last a few weeks by smarter lawyers than I am matching. The president took office and said I'm going to bake -ation for a year. I'm GONNA go live. You know on the Mediterranean Indian for a year. You know you guys take care out figure it out. Impeachable no Allen says Dershowitz no not impeachable. I can go on a crime to go on the laundry list of things and of course he also the weakest argument he made. I thought was saying just because they allege specific crimes within the articles articles of impeachment. That doesn't work because the article impeachment is not alleging a crime it's alleging abuse of power but underlying that abuse of power. They lay out the crimes and so it really. I thought it was sad. He's on a very lonely island. Yeah I thought I mean it was. It was essentially a kind of like heterodox heterodox. Dissident interpretation of what the what the sort of scholarship says on this given to you by undershirts. I will say this it was at least the legal argument. Click literally after he hours before you had the lawyer reading off the unemployment stats and right after after Dershowitz done simple and comes out to say it's never ever before happened in American history that we've impeach election year which is flatly untrue. Andrew Johnson's impeach February eighteen sixty eight was election year. So at least Alan Dershowitz was just making an argument. Unlike the recognizable I thought it was just one but it was an argument in like a recognizable forum of a set of legal arguments with citations and all that stuff and not quite the level level of like weird bad faith disingenuous. Trolling that it'd be able to victory in that sense like okay. Let's have an argument about this sort of constitutional look at scholar arc of the of the defense argument over. Its first today's no. I'm confused and I'm and I'm trying to be you. You know was genuine and objective. As I possibly can here but I thought on Saturday. They were arguing that you know. Of course absolutely there was no linkage. Between aid an investigation there was no quid pro quo right and and they sprinkled that argument in today as well before gave the legal scholarship. But but this afternoon I watched all Pam Bundy's presentation in which she seemed to be saying. Of course there was Lincoln between eight and investigations. That was his duty to link the two when quid pro quo so I don't understand. The Great Mind is supposed to be able to hold two thoughts in opposition at the same time but this is stretching there for me. They are trying. They're trying a lot of a different things. Some of which are legal arguments. Some of which are not. I thought the whole trees about how really ought to be impeaching. Barack Obama was apex moment for for me today. I was like this really happening. Yes this is the argument. They're really trying to make But I mean there's obviously also this elephant in the room right. which is that last night? We getting John. Bolton's manuscript reported by the New York Times to describe in fact overt quid pro quo articulated in detail detail by the president personally to his national security adviser who has committed it to print thereby probably blowing up any claims of privilege that might arise around those claims and we already know that he wants testify so they're they're sort of not grappling with dirty. Which I believe is the first I talked about John? Bolton's well I have to tell you tonight just in the last few minutes. NBC News has advanced this reporting. This is breaking news reported by Caroline. NBC News I think is going to be joining us by phone own in just a moment. She reports this a single hard copy of former national security advisor. John Bolton's book was delivered last month to the White House for a national national security review. What happened to the copy of the book is unknown to Bolton's team but it appears copies of it were made so he dropped off have one somehow it multiplied inside the White House Bolton's teams submitted the book quote in Good Faith and now feels that process was corrupted? Bolton doesn't intend to speak publicly clear about the Ukraine issue until questions about his potential testimony are resolved. That's important if he were to testify he plans to do so as a fact witness again new reporting from Karelia. NBC News joining us now by phone is NBC. News Correspondent Carolina has just broken. This story. Carol thank you so much for making time. I know this is a really busy time for you or course curse. Thanks Rachel so am I am I right. That he believes there has been there has been replication that he dropped off one hard copy one paper copy of the book and his team. Bolton's team is saying that they believe it was photocopied it was just in order to circulate. It more widely basically yes. They're saying that they gave a single copy of the manuscript to the White House for the very sort of routine review that anyone who's worked in administration and with the kind of access that someone like Donald did would have to undergo. They were writing a book. National Security Review and given that the the Bolton Walton.
"jeffrey free epstein" Discussed on Article II: Inside Impeachment
"Also don't know whether that push for witnesses will be successful given these credibility credibility issues we've been talking about with parks. Given the potential incentive. He has to inflate perhaps his importance to to this investigation allegation to other investigations just in pursuit of some kind of leniency for the other legal issues that he faces is that a consideration for Democrats in terms of potentially pushing thing for him as a witness that that. Hey maybe if you look a little further if you put him more under the microscope there might be some more unflattering stuff here that detracts from from the stories telling. Yeah I think it this Steve. Because if he comes forward and says something particularly if it's under oath in the Senate that are then able to be disproven even if ninety nine percent of the things things that he says are borne out by documents and are accurate if that remaining one percent is able to be successfully questioned that's GonNa Hand Republicans a pretty powerful argument to say. This guy can't be trusted. You know you're bringing in fake witnesses and that really. All of his testimony should be discounted actually blow back on Democrats that having been said. This just is the fact of the matter when you have unscrupulous characters who are recounting in investigations. What they know? Oh I don't think we're necessarily going to see. Democrats dismissed out of hand. Just because there are questions about his credibility I think the question then politically becomes these Republicans were always talking about potential swing voters when it comes to particular witnesses when it comes to the the ultimate question of trump's fate but I'm thinking this week of Martha Martha mcsally In her sort of Dismissive we'll put it that way. Dismissive response to a reporter asking about this. Susan Collins from Maine. She didn't seem I'm too eager to go down this road. Does it suggest that those swing Republican Senators Democrats need to change the scope of the trial have not been swayed by by what par and this is put forward. Well there have more work to do but all of these new details that are coming to light just as the senators are starting. Their trial are putting putting more pressure on Republicans to consider having witnesses. Because it's making it harder for them to argue. Look we already know what happened. The House had their opportunity And and interviewed people. There's no need to relive that. Now we're seeing there's new stuff we really didn't know about and their legitimate reasons why that wasn't included rooted in the house process namely the fact that the White House completely prohibited any of its officials from testifying before Congress so. I don't think that we have yet. Seen some of those vulnerable. Senators give categorical comments. That they do want and are willing to allow witnesses is but they are suggesting some open to it. Particularly Susan Collins and Mitt Romney and we'll have to see in the in the first couple of weeks of the trial whether Democrats are able to create a compelling enough case that ultimately they will vote against their leader Mitch McConnell with Democrats to allow additional witnesses and evidence and by this time next week we will be in full swing. That Senate Trial Josh. Thank you for shedding some light on this very complicated topic really appreciate it. Thanks Steve. This morning we got word that Ken Starr and Alan. Dershowitz are expected to be added to President Trump's defense team in the Senate trial. Ah Ken Starr of course was the independent counsel during the Clinton impeachment.

"jeffrey free epstein" Discussed on Truth and Lies: Jeffrey Epstein
"Society else but between nineteen eighty one in the late one thousand nine hundred eighty s as Epstein is running his own consulting firm whether he was having any success or not is unclear author Bill Cohen and says that if Epstein had found some new strategy for investing or making money for his clients wouldn't have remained a secret for long. If Jeffrey Free Epstein were doing anything miraculous a would have been Unwound would have been discovered if there was some secret sauce that he was using spreading around. We're all known about it. Epstein had always been secretive about his clients and and while he claimed that billionaires were calling him for advice he appears to switch gears. After a few years I was the CEO of towers always finding Corporation this is Steven Hoffenberg. Who Hired Jeffrey Epstein in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven? I am a former principal. Associate Partner of Jeffrey Epstein's and I've spent years with him. I understand him greater. Probably Google's the most others based on my history with him and we started in the seventies. We grew into sadly to to report a criminal enterprise before Jeffrey Epstein arrives on the scene towers financial. Is this company run by Steven Hoffenberg. It's a repo. Oh Company. They're basically bill collectors. If there's a big debt owed to a hospital or an insurance provider they'll go out they'll oh by that debt and then try and collect it from the people who who is in New York City in the nineteen eighties at the towers. Financial headquarters of four seventeen fifth. Avenue is when I made sure they describe him as the route flew ren look rugged manly shop rather swagger. It's very sophisticated. Jeffrey Epstein had come to know an associate of Hoffenberg who Hoffenberg says recommended him. Good friend of mine said to me. We have an executive onboard. And American from New York named Jeffrey Epstein. Hoffenberg says at the Time Epstein was struggling financially. The meeting of Jeffrey Epstein was unusual number one Jeffrey Epstein was broke. Couldn't pay his bills and came to us. Humbly looking for employment and asking for opportunity there were clouds but tell us financial was having its own problems with the Securities Exchange Commission Hoffenberg though says he was impressed by Epstein. He says he saw talent in him. And we saw in Jeffrey Epstein mm-hmm this magnificent personality in this tremendous Wall Street. salesmanship he's charming. He's charismatic very funny. He's lovable totally lovable. And very unusually smart. Nobody was dealing with all the time and had the ability we see Wall Street turns up and down and the way to make money on Wall Street so hop in Burg Brings Epstein on board as a consultant reportedly setting him up in an office and as court records later show he paid Epstein a consulting fee of twenty five thousand dollars a month. There were a team of people on Wall Street involved until his financial team but Epstein in Iran it Epstein goes from operating out of his one bedroom bachelor apartment to then and now one of the most sought after addresses in Manhattan. You know a large office overlooking a famous restaurant in a courtyard in midtown Manhattan on Madison Avenue that is ABC News Contributor Contributor Rodney Boyd. A financial investigative reporter and the founder of the Southern Investigative Reporting Foundation. Life had to be looking pretty good for him at at that point Hoffenberg says during this time he and Epstein got to know each other quite well. We worked together seven days a week. We traveled the world together. And we got to know each other's thinking methods ways and lifestyle you know Vanity anti-fair said that you were abstains. Real Mentor that true. Yes as one of their first acts together at Towers Hoffenberg alleges in an affidavit that he and Epstein took over to insurance companies so 1987 Hoffenberg and Epstein acquired these two failing Illinois insurance companies companies United Fire and associated life. and the thinking there goes. We're not trying to get into the insurance business. So why would they want to acquire insurance companies if if they had no intention of running them well. Insurance companies are legally required to have a lot of cash on hand just in case they have to pay claims they used. WHO's these two insurance companies as their cash pile and let's be clear here? This is totally illegal. They envision themselves Eckstein and Hoffenberg as corporate raiders who are good to go in choir the companies and then they start thinking about ways of using that cash pile to go out and read and acquire new companies and Hoffenberg says they set their sights on acquiring an iconic airline..
"jeffrey free epstein" Discussed on The Andrew Klavan Show
"Is the Andrew Klavan show shipshape Thompson zippy's so wonderful things. We want to see. Okay all right. We're GONNA talk a lot more about Iran and our crazy friends the Democrats but I I gotTa talk some more about our crazy friend Harvey Weinstein. He went on trial New York yesterday on two counts of rape. One Count of criminal. Sexual Act and to Council Predatory Tori Sexual Assault which is a felony that includes committing sex crimes against multiple people. If convicted on the most serious charge he could face up to life in prison. Not Not only that but Weinstein was hit with more charges out here in Los Angeles. He was charged with raping one woman sexually assaulting another. Now I talk about this and other cases of sexual abuse a lot and for those of you who are listening to my fictional podcast another kingdom you know. Hollywood sexual abuse plays a big role in that story. To in fact they're Erie connections between the story and the Jeffrey Free Epstein case even though I wrote another kingdom long before Epstein's death by make believe suicide but the reason these abuse stories fascinate and concern in me is because widespread sexual abuse by powerful. People represents the norm in human affairs. which is to say? It represents something very natural and in human beings which Christians like myself considered part of our inherent sinfulness and therefore something to be overcome not something to be indulged. The historian Tom Holland has a fascinating new book out. It traces the effects of Christianity on the West and Western ideas he writes it in Crete pre Christian Rome unquote to be penetrated male or female was to be branded as inferior to be marked as womanish barbarian servile while the body of a freeborn. Roman was sacrosanct. Those of others were fair game unquote in other words. If you add power it was just accepted that you could sexually use someone who didn't have power. This is essentially the attitude of some monkeys macaques. Who Show dominance over one another by assuming the mail rather than the female position even if they don't actually have sex they just hold that position for a moment as a sign of which monkeys and charge humans display that sort of monkey? Mind when we give someone the finger or when we say screw you. The the monkey mind also survives in the sort of rough sex fantasies that may fifty shades of grey one of the best selling novels of all time it sex scene as an active aggression Russian domination. That's a normal part of the fallen human mind. It was Christianity with its revolutionary. Idea that all Christians rich and poor powerful in powerless women and men were part of the body of Christ that slowly began to move the human mind toward the idea that everyone had rights. Yes even even women had rights and that being woman did not make you inferior at all but in fact gave you a sacred role in sharing God's ongoing work of human creation. The Virgin Mary of course would be. The prime example. Now obviously is not to say the powerful Christians don't abuse people. Of course they do. Their people and hypocrisy is universal. It's simply to say that the idea that we shouldn't abuse the less powerful is part of our spiritual inheritance. It's not the natural state of mankind now. Now recently is a lot of people have noticed. Our intellectual elites have attempted to create a post Christian world by replacing Christianity with leftism leftism attempts wants to make spiritual ideas material. That was part of Karl. Marx's original idea he said so himself so instead of equal spiritual worth as children of God which would be a Christian Christian idea. We're supposed to have equal money equal places in society. That's the leftist idea. INSTEAD OF CONFESSIONS OF SIN IT help us rise above our fallen nature. We deny neither sin exists and force people instead to confess. If they say it does exist as Christian non-judgmental ism stripped of its sense of spiritual evil and instead of the apocalypse we have all the nonsensical hysteria about climate change. And so on. We can't break free of Christian truth. We can only transform it into left US lies and so instead of equal respect for men as men and women as women which is very much a Christian idea we now have the leftist idea that men and women are supposed to be equal in kind that they're essentially the same they can do the same things they want the same things. They have the same value priorities and all the rest. Because that's not true because men and women are very different in kind and not the same leftist. Feminism has morphed into an anti female philosophy and attempt to eliminate the femininity which puts the lie to their philosophy under leftist. Feminism women need to be like men in order to be of any worth leaning be aggressive. Be Strong make money puts accessible family. You may have heard the actress Michelle Williams at the Golden Globes who accepted her award and she seemed to be saying that her ability to kill a child via abortion had helped her to success is that female empowerment. Where's that being raised as a woman? So you can compete as a man anyway back to Harvey Weinstein. He's been accused of abuse by eighty women. And since I know for a fact irregularly abused men I know some of those men I see no reason to disbelieve the women's charges when Ronan Farrow tried to expose Weinstein at NBC News he was the easy thwarted because NBC executives were busy scrambling to protect their culture of abusing women led by Q.. Serial Abuser Matt. Lauer their star anchorman over overdue. ABC The top newsmen as George Stephanopoulos. Who used to have the job of silencing women who accused Bill Clinton of cereal abuse and when Stephanopoulos is ABC? Got The story about Jeffrey. Jeffrey Epstein serially abusing underage women and girls guess what they spiked it and when it was revealed that they spiked it. CBS show themselves willing to hunt down and fire. Where the person who made the revelation revelation every single mainstream media network has been complicit in covering up the serial abuse of women the less powerful and yes so was Fox News because conservative media has signed onto the feminist lie mostly due to their fear of being attacked as being anti women losing sponsors all these media the folks in Hollywood and in the news of the very people who have been selling women the leftist feminist idea the post Christian idea that men and women the same desires and priorities and abilities? Harvey Weinstein said it himself. He said it's unfair. He should be prosecuted because he's been telling the feminist story all these years he told the New York Post quote. I made more movies movies directed by women and about women than any filmmaker unquote. He told them into stories about women so he should be forgiven for treating women like trash. See I think this is our society science in a nutshell. I think women are being told the story about themselves. That's not true. The story that they are equal in kind to men. I think feminists have insisted did that. They'd be told the story and anyone who doesn't tell it get shouted down and cancelled. I think feminists have helped create a leftist culture of lies and like all all lies the obscure the truth and the truth. The obscurity ability for men to hide behind those lies has allowed men and women gays and straights to return turned to the idea that the powerful in sexually abuse the powerless at will according to Ronan Farrow. When Matt Lauer Victims asked him why are you doing this to me? Lower said because it's fun. I'm sure it was. I get attacked for saying all this all the time but I'll say it anyway. I think we need to tell women a new story about who they are really really. I think what we need is to tell very old story a story. That's about two thousand years old. We're GONNA talk more about all of this. All the lies that the leftists sutphin snared themselves in but first let's talk about something delightful and true which is helix mattresses. Some of you will find that if you get a helix mattress you will get a good night's sleep but that's because you're wake you sleep at night..

Aaron Canada the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation says it was all part of a routine edit made in two thousand fourteen but seen as Pamela Brown reports from the White House. The facts aren't stopping the president's supporters from claiming a case of anti-trump bias. She's me for a ratings obsessed president conscious of every television appearance. No Matter How oh small these seven seconds are now putting home alone. Two at the center of Christmas conspiracy controversy involving president trump down the whole to the left after the president said he was honored to make a cameo appearance in the movie during a video conference with the US troops. Just before Christmas. It's been a good movie Ed I was a little bit younger to put it. Mildly was it was and it turned out to be a very big hit. Obviously it's too big Christmas. Hit One of the biggest the movie aired on the CBC later that day with out that seven seconds seen something trump supporters quickly took notice of with Fox News. Even claiming anti-trump. Censorship was the reason. The scene was edited out syndrome for you to cut that out of movie over and after that segment aired on the president's favorite channel he pounced on twitter claiming it was edited out as revenge by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeting. I guess just in t doesn't much like my making him pay up on NATO or trade but here are the facts even before trump launched his presidential bid that Canadian Broadcasting Corporation made the edits to home alone two loss to New York to get the movie under two hours and twenty fourteen. Multiple multiple scenes. Were edited out including then private citizen. Donald Trump's seven second cameo according to a statement from the CBC Justin Trudeau wasn't wasn't even Prime Minister in two thousand fourteen and doesn't control how the CBC would added a movie but President trump didn't miss an opportunity to get in on the joke from his winter. White House in Florida mar-a-lago for the holidays he seemed to make light of the missing Cameo tweeting. The movie will never be the same just kidding and then reached out your Trudeau's office about the president's claims and Trudeau spokesperson declined to comment. I guess no surprise. Is There Erica. No not really and thank you. Pamela Brown live at the White House for us on that one. What's remarkable is hours after the CBC confirmed firms that as Pam laid out there the edits were made in twenty fourteen? It was one of several scenes that were cut to fit the two hour. Airtime this is what the conversation was last night on Fox business. Just take a listen. We're having this conversation. But we're fulfilling a stereotype this narrative because this was deleted five years ago along with many many other scenes prior to him being president. I think that's important because we shouldn't be making a big deal. They cut it out. Who you gotta you gotTa admit it would make sense in Canada? Look a lot of Canadians. Have as you know a very unfavourable didn't back did they talk. Don't let the facts get in the way they're I mean Philip as you look at that. What's remarkable is the Fox reporter on that panel? That she's trying so hard to say. Can we just look at the facts. And what happened in here and not try to fit some crazy conspiracy narrative and they're having none of it. It's remarkable and yet it's not I mean that's what I was going to say. Two things first is at home to is not a Christmas classic. The second thing I'm going to say is that this is how it works the way it works is Donald Trump powers his politics on agreement and any incident of agreement however real is seized upon by his base and his supporters including those at Fox. News Fox News amplifies things that they see in social social media. Fox News pushes it out there. Other people see it spreads outward from there it goes to the present it goes to twitter feed. This is how it works. This is the cycle. This is why he's president of the United States not because the home loan to specifically which again is not interest but because this cycle exists and he is powered by. You know what's remarkable about about that too that Donald trump junior rates the president is as we saw. It's going to be having a little bit of fun with it but Donald Trump jeweler called it absolutely pathetic and part of a lengthy post on instagram. Read in part. Imagine being so triggered that you can't leave a Christmas movie alone without editing. This is what we're up against in twenty twenty. This is the filter by which people receive their news. This is is why it's not a fair fight but this is also why we will win Jane. The hypocrisy is glaring. He's relying on a lie. A false story agenda his base. But as as you know because you cover this so it works. I mean I don't know if it does though granted we're discussing it so it has apparently proven effective. I do think it's interesting that apparently home alone two is the source of news for people in Canada who cannot vote in American elections. And that's how trump will win in two thousand twenty. The math here doesn't quite work out but it's interesting because it is very much. I think that this particular story evidence of how it's the end of the year and we don't have as as much to talk about but I also think that there's a sense of you could see that trump kind of found this amusing but people around are are well aware that this is actually something that many people take very seriously because it's not about home alone two. It's never bat home alone two. It's the idea that people don't feel as if their viewpoints being taken can seriously. They fix that. They're being taken advantage of and they think that their political beliefs are being treated unfairly. And when you see that in some places sometimes you see it in home alone two to which actually is a Christmas classic to be clear. Oh Boo that's set up for next year. Maybe but what I think is remarkable. I actually think it's a legitimate that story for us to discuss because of what it shows us in just that this is a perfect example of something that is completely innocuous. It's home alone right now. You can debate whether it's a Christmas classic but it's still you know. It's a movie about Kevin mcallister. There's not a lot of controversy in it but the fact that this was run with and promoted even hours after it was very clear what the real story was. Ease an important discussion about where we're at in this country and how people are getting their information and how Thursay Thursday refusal to look at facts. Well Philip is exactly right that this is what they do they pedal the lies. They go out with the lies. We debunk the lies. They keep telling allies is it works with their Bass Don and it's just funny because Donald J Donald Trump junior is such a little baby that he's whining about this. He wrote a book called trigger that alleges that liberals liberals are the ones who are obsessed with slight like this but he's the one on holiday who's going nuts about ironic the funniest thing to me about this and maybe other people knew this but what and what I learned from this story is trump demand routinely demanded cameos from directors when if he let them use a trump property so. This isn't the only time he did it. Ah I think that's a kind of early trump corruption that you know should have told us more about him also kind of smart right. I mean you get paid for this. So hey you know why not. If you're going to be there and use the building you may as well. Unfortunately we have to wrap it. There Brendan I have time for one quick question for you Christmas classic or not absolutely actually watched it two weeks ago and I was going to speak up on that yet. Great Okay now.

France's interior minister visited did west often announcing the creation of a national task force. When the Graveyard Katzen Heim was attacked? It was the French president who came another case. The remains on a source close to the investigation says the locals are believed to be responsible locals who may have been incited by global websites while the hunt for the culprits continues. We wanted to find out where they are finding encouragement two French language sites registered in Panama. The Bahamas and enable to stay online by an American company White Europe and participatring democracy both both shared pictures of the attacks in US White Europe celebrating these exemplary actions by the proud people of us that show us the way reached reached for comment white Europe told us they stand behind their posts.

Both sides celebrating the number fourteen a reference to a slogan coined by the late American white. Supremacist David David Lane. and which was also found graffitied on one of the West often tunes. Both of these sites use the American Internet Infrastructure Company cloudflare there which provides protection from cyber attacks both sides openly celebrate antisemitism. And that here in France is a crime now in the past caused cloudflare has discontinued its services to hr in the wake of the El Paso mass shooting and the American Neo Nazi blog daily stormer. So why the different treatment when it comes to hate speech. That is in French clouds. There have not responded to. CNN's questions CNN also founded facebook which does not allow allow daily stormer posts to be shared did allow posts from both the French sites until CNN reached out for comment after which should lock them. Twitter allowed this sharing from all three sites but told CNN that it's taking action to prevent linking to such content. We asked France's Interior Minister in an exclusive interview review.

The question is whether it is in peace that he will now be allowed to rest Melissa Bell. CNN as US. Melissa for that report very very disturbing up next impeachment van and now similarities between three Bill Clinton's case and president trump's and some significant differences. newham like everybody Palm Beach. No no one knows how he made the happening. He was running short and pulling my body onto already naked body fat for the night for sixteen years. I've reported on Jeffrey Epstein. The man the multi-millionaire the monster. Now go behind the story with me Vicky Hurst of CNN's new podcast. The Jeffrey Free Epstein I knew subscribe now wherever you get. You'll put costs two decades. It's after the last impeachment of an American president. History is on track now to repeat itself but with some notable differences. See it as Brian. Todd is working the story for US Brian. Some we're looking to Bill Clinton's impeachment as a possible guide to what comes next some are wolf and there are some striking similarities but there are also some big differences between the Clinton Trial Twenty thirty one years ago and now especially in how some leaders in Congress are handling the process one gavel drops and others will follow follow as Congress sets the stage for the third impeachment trial in American history. The fourth time Congress has considered removing president tonight the impeachment process for the president trump is drawing strong comparisons to the last time. Congress moved to impeach the one thousand nine hundred eighty nine thousand nine trial of Bill Clinton and a capital city that some analysts believe is even more bitterly partisan and take no prisoners where people can't talk to each other anymore where there is contempt for those who disagree disagreed where the basic respect. That's like the the lubricant that keeps our government working has disappeared. There have been key differences in how those those trials played out. Bill Clinton's impeachment trial for lying about the Lewinsky affair came after a special prosecutor. Ken Starr spent years investigating him this time. Time a whistle blowers complaint about Donald. Trump's phone call with Ukrainian President led the House Intelligence Committee to investigate trump. Both impeachment inquiries went through the House. Judiciary Jerry Committee. But it's how the Senate handles impeachment which is drawing stark comparisons in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight Republican senator. Trent Lott the majority leader. I agree it worked closely with Democrat. Tom Daschle the minority leader to agree. On how the trial would proceed this time. Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell has not coordinated so far with his Democratic counterpart Chuck Schumer but has coordinated with trump's team from the from the president's lawyers. McConnell did did say previously he would try to agree on rules with the Democrats and he says he's not the only one who's coordinated with the White House President Clinton and they don't Crouch and the Senate were coordinating role. Tom Daschle says that while he didn't coordinate with the Clinton White House his staff did nevertheless nevertheless critics. Say The optics Mitch. McConnell at the moment aren't great. Imagine if you had a murder trial and the head juror was in bed with the alleged murderer. Would we view that as the way the criminal justice system is supposed to work. We would be outraged raged. Then there's the difference in how the two presidents handled impeachment and discussed their own conduct. Nothing was done wrong. Zero was done wrong. I don't think there is the fancy way to say that I have sinned. President Clinton sought to get on with the job of being president. That doesn't mean the behind the scenes. He wasn't obsessed with the impeachment. By contrast president. Trump's understanding of being president involves being aggressive taunting his enemies emmys and while the intensity of the media coverage hasn't changed that could in fact lead to impeachment proceedings analysts say the political divide in America. Now seems even more harsh than it was twenty one years ago we are living in a tribal era in our politics. You've got Republicans who largely urgently believe that Democrats are evil people trying to destroy our way of life and you have Democrats looking at Republicans as evil people protecting being a president. WHO's in bed with Vladimir Putin another comparison experts are keeping an eye on tonight is how much political damage will be done to the party? which brings things the impeachment charges after the nine thousand nine hundred ninety nine trial of bill? Clinton the Republicans who brought the charges against him suffered serious impeachment backlash losing several all seats in Congress in the next election analysts don't expect Democrats in Congress who are bringing these charges against trump to suffer quite as many losses but they do say the moderates from each party hardy could take hits depending on how they vote on the impeachment of Donald Trump Wolf. Brian Good report brought back a lot of memories up next. The stage is now set for the House of Representatives to vote next week on impeaching president trump following a historic committee vote on two articles of impeachment.

"I mean this is a general feature. I often talked about this. In terms of magnetic and true north where the angle of declaration that separates them is very small at the equator in northern Canada it it is a very large right and and at the at the poll. South is everywhere. Well that's right right and so it's just the problem. Problem is is that the institution I mean. Look I've made this point elsewhere. So regular listeners will have heard it but the concept of the embedded growth obligation the ego of of an institution. which is it has to do work and grow in order to meet its mandates that thing that has metastasized throughout better institutional structure and so it's not the southern poverty law center. I mean that's particularly egregious but the entire university versity system single Measure you can take on that thing. Looks like an intergenerational wealth transfer right right down to the non discharge ability of student debt and bankruptcy within the loading up of every university by administrators in the monopolization Shen At the moment almost one hundred percent of our leading institutions are run by a baby boomer whereas the average age in a different era of university president would have most of them under gen-x control and some of them under millennial control there were university presidents in their thirties. who had a huge impact? I mean that is a system which has gone totally metastatic. Yeah yeah that may be an outlier with is the word is the worst large system of its kind. Yeah I mean the way costs have gone up their way. Outpacing inflation medic outpacing pacing medical India. Yeah it's it's amazing end the fact that you can't discharge your debt in bankruptcy yet and and the fact that many of our friends have spent a lot of time complaining about this but the fact that you have whole fields that are essentially you know sham fields right that are in humanities whereas just pseudo knowledge is being imparted to the next generation and is not only its own knowledge. It is a disparagement of real knowledge like so they the anti science moral panic that is happening in humanities. It is fit mimetic complex. Well apparently it's fit fit thus far is producing new graduates. Yeah well and it's colonizing things outside the all black journalism tech Human Resources anything which is a high leverage but often poorly paid for the level of intelligence Usually required or the amount of training usually required becomes attractive. So there's a perverse incentive when when you can't pay journalists or scientists or even technologists at appropriate levels. I know people scream. Sow You have no idea how much money tech people get paid eight nine. I really don't believe it. I think that those jobs are supposed to be even better compensated Because of large-scale tampering in the sector. What I believe is that the were looking at The Difference Between Truth and fitness. And if you recall when I went I went on your program. I said I care about four. Four things. Truth is one of them but I also care about meaning fitness in grace. This is a great example. Where fitness is Out Competing Truth We have a hand in this. We can tune the landscape right says well the two of us. Yeah that's why I call you. Say what the Hell's going. Yes the a relatively small number of people can do it is. It's not doesn't take seven billion people or eight billion people had got at the moment. No but like you need to convince the top you know three thousand people that one way of talking doesn't work right into to align nine fitness and truth more faithfully. You know. I'm not used to disagree with you. This march as I came here I LOADED ALTER EGO Sam I think we've screwed up a lot worse than you're imagining in the past and that is the fodder for the twin evils of trumpism in Wokingham. But just just grant me the the possible seachange effect of the three thousand people. The right three thousand people fundamentally getting their heads straight. Ah On these issues or any issue right. Whatever it is? You're talking about basically all of Hollywood all of journalism and all science. That's public facing if we can do that. Yeah Okay in some some thought experiment. Yeah I guess what my feeling is first of all is that my head is so filled with malware. I've got I'm running. So many nonsensical programmes put there by other people that I don't even know or nonsense where I can detect you have a sense of what direction to point where you're gonna find the a nonsense so forty worried about well. So we're currently sitting in a room with reflective glass and an acoustic tiles. That deaden sound if I echo locate by things that I am absolutely positive would sell newspapers. That aren't printed That it's like okay. You're echo locating instead of hearing the reflection off of glass. You're hearing a an absence. which is an acoustic tile? And so if I just look at Google trends which tells me what people are searching If I look at how Google Auto completes which tells me what they want me to see what what other people are searching on in the search bar if I look at what stories aren't being run all of the dead stuff is astounding to me right at the moment like I know for example that people are fascinated by the Jeffrey Epstein story. And in general like you you know we just had so normally don't love talking about current events because it dates the program but we just had Kevin Spacey's accuser reported his dying saying. I don't think that that is likely to be part of some super evil plot. Talk just so people can calibrate. It's not that everything that could make sense. Because there's an incentive I chalk up to a conspiracy the Jeffrey Epstein thing is totally different. And you and I both met this Guy For fifteen years and and he's the only person I've been saying this with conviction about for fifteen years. I had one meeting with them. I've said he's a construct. Somebody hired a person probably named Jeffrey Free Epstein to play a role super genius. Mega billionaire philanthropist. I wasn't biennial. I've never bought it and I've talked to everybody in our report of mutual network always used one word because I wanted to make a huge bet that when the time came I would say he's a construct and that I would be revealed to be correct and that everybody was asked. What do you mean by construct right? Okay do you need to have you. Clarified that on your podcast before Habeb. Not I recorded an an entire Jeffrey Epstein episode which is just me soloing for an hour right but I haven't released it because I'm terrified how I've had one ambiguous dinner dinner. Were somebody sort of quasi threatened me and I wasn't entirely sure what they were saying. It was a little bit creepy Well this is a A Strand brand of human complication. That your way more in touch with than I am. I don't deny that it exists right so like I think. There are real conspiracies and powerful people. Occasionally you know do what. Powerful people are occasionally sociopaths. And then they do what you would expect or conspire to do what. Oh you'd expect So I don't have a strong feeling about. Let's just take a livelihood that Epstein was was headed facilitated suicide. I think the likelihood that he was murdered is is low but suicide. I don't have I'm agnostic about the weather whether people stepped away so that he could do the thing that he needed to do. Whether there's some vanishing probability that he actually isn't dead. I don't know I I put that at at very low. I put that very low odds as well. Yeah but I you know. I'm a fan of two zero odd soon. Why wouldn't I know enough? About probability to put. Almost nothing in zero was huge huge difference between those people who insist when I hear somebody insist insist that that probability zero person is smart but effectively effectively zero zero in the sense that I wish we don't have I worry about. I wasted no time thinking about at the moment right but I'm happy to have my basin. priors tutored right. Okay so I. I just don't have a amaze you know I'm taking in or or are I utilized this homily that you shouldn't ascribe to to malice. What can be explained by incompetence or whatever that the formulation I I find that that's a interesting heuristic for somebody it's is usually? I think it's usually true right so like it. Works much of the time and then it it fails but it fails Dell's in a case where you get more information and then you update that's what that was. That was exactly my point. That the Kevin Spacey thing I would say is in the realm of newtonian mechanics. Right and then the Jeff Epstein thing is like relativistic quantum field theory whatever your Newtonian laws are. We're not in Kansas. But I had no you put me in the same room with him so I should probably clarify that so I found myself when she both apologize. Nothing a half. Yes right I I found myself at a lunch inch with him at the Ted Conference and had no insight into him or what he was up to apart from the fact that he you know my sort of creep eap detector went off spiked like crazy. Yeah he was someone who I didn't WanNA spend any more time with because he had this sort sort of Shawki Rich Guy But within we'll know missiles but like when you see a I guess he was probably close to sixty at this point and You know he's with a twenty one year old you know it's like it's like the optics text of that are always. I mean obviously many rich guys who do that you know and there many many people in Hollywood to do that and you know that's just the way people some people role when they have the opportunity to roll that way. Okay fine but he was just A. I have a kind of a level of judgmental ISM around that right. You know. It's like at at minimum. That's a a an attractor on the on the landscape of of wellbeing that is Not all that interesting to me and so when when you see someone captivated by that like this is like life is going great because I'm sixty and she's twenty right. I got one variable that that was how about his Lamborghini. All the executive right. Okay that you've you've you've bored me already So But I had no more. I didn't him than added a may be associated with him from one meeting. I've been talking about him for fifteen years ended because this was like a ten person lunch okay and I had maybe three sentences the exchange with him you know so mine was at his house right. ushered into a waiting room. He's got some super complicated electronical electronic China art. I get up.

He's vowed to investigate get to the bottom of what happened. <hes> you know it's a pretty secure facility and a lot of people are asking questions as to how this could happen <hes> in a federal prison that held you know el chapo for for example so <hes> what is the concern here because if i understand correctly it has been established alleged a suicide even though there have been a number of conspiracy theories that it was murder i mean has it been establishes suicide so <hes> you know the only thing we've been told <hes> by the bureau prison. He was found unresponsive. Jail staff tried to revive him some emergency medical personnel and that he was pronounced dead at the hospital <hes> a._b._c. a._b._c. and others have reported that he that he he hung himself and there has been an autopsy performed. The medical examiner verified that but hasn't officially determined determine the cause of debt <hes> there has been a city official that told the new york times that <hes> that the medical examiner's pretty confident that it is suicide <hes> <music> but needs to complete the autopsy to make that determination so what's the key question here when it comes to the serious irregularities that attorney general bar was talking about well. There's you know there's questions about <hes>. You know pfaff. Overtime weather staff were overworked. <hes> you know what the conditions at the prison and we're like <hes> whether or not he was on suicide watch. We've been told that he was not even though he was recently on one after previous attempts apparently to kill himself off <hes> so some you know the investigations going to revolve around that who was watching him <hes> when they were supposed to <hes> be checking on him <hes> <hes> what was in his cell how he was able to get something that allowed him to hang himself <hes>. It's gonna be a pretty comprehensive investigation that that's kind of launched every time there is a <music> <hes> a suicide in in federal prison chris. I'm wondering what his death means for the prosecution and for the investigation into the nature of some of the crimes which which included a trafficking young girls who were under the legal age of consent sure that's so this ends the criminal prosecution has because he's dead the case just just ends and that kind of ends the attempts by prosecutors to kind of tease his assets to compensate his victims through criminal proceedings but that doesn't mean that they can't go <hes> in civil proceedings to seize individual assets including his mansion <hes> his plane other things to attempt to compensate victims. Obviously there's it's going to be a pretty complicated. <hes> state scenario that comes out after his autopsy is finished and <hes> you know we we don't know whether he has a will you know we would assume with somebody with his number of assets would have a will <hes> so it's a question of who would the executor would be where it might be filed. I mean he has homes in new york. In the virgin islands new mexico <hes> so any of those places are a potential for him to have his will filed and have sustained divvied beat up there though right certainly states and you know will want to get a piece of the tax bill so there's a question about the assets there's also a question about the tentacles of this case that had ensnared at least in the court documents very high profile individuals who are friends with him from the political to the legal to the business world what is going on with that. I mean are those kinds of <hes> reaches of the investigation going to be shot at this point or are they going to be ongoing going. No so other prosecutors have told me that the prosecutors here in manhattan will almost certainly continue their investigation with the evidence they've gathered. Obviously there's a conspiracy account here which implicates other people <hes> and there should certainly could be other charges brought against <hes> other members of that conspiracy <hes> we wouldn't doubt that they were that they are indeed doing that right now so good definitely in snare other people <hes> as it moves forward <hes> which will probably take a little while as if they go through the evidence so is there any concern chris about finding all of jeffrey epstein acids considering the rather secretive nature in which they were all kept. I'd say there's definitely a concern through that. I mean even the prosecutors have been unable to determine exactly where all his assets are and <hes> says they've been secured away and trust left and you know that there are several layers secrecy that <hes> have to be gone through before we can. They can determine exactly what he has crystal match. Thank you so much for being with us. Does he's bloomberg legal reporter joining us from the courthouse the latest being attorney general william bar coming out and saying that the prison where jeffrey epstein died has quote quote serious irregularities he vowed to pursue justice for the financiers victims as chris was talking about there is some question about seizing the assets of jeffrey free epstein and doling out the proceeds to the victims as might have happened under a.

"Accused sex trafficker jeffrey. Free epstein has died by apparent suicide. The sixty-six-year-old was being held on charges of sex trafficking girls as young as fourteen to other rich and powerful men. The justice department just is to release a statement confirming that epstein was found unresponsive in his manhattan sal at approximately six thirty this morning he was transported to a hospital for treatment of life threatening injuries and subsequently pronounced dead by hospital officials multiple people familiar with the investigation so that f. seeing was not currently on suicide watch at the time of his death breath even though just last month the millionaire financier was found injured in his self after what was called a possible suicide attempt also new this hour a senior law enforcement official told old n._b._c. news that the f._b._i. Is investigating the incident. As an as an abundance of caution however the official added that there is nothing at this point suggest foul play joining me now standings evolves and civil rights attorney lisa bloom danny. We were just talking in the break. When i read the statement that came out about about how he was found with what's missing from that is how did they didn't say. They found him hanging in his cell. They didn't say they found him that he choked on something in a cell. There's there's a lot missing or or or my just a bit too suspicious. Because now we know this is a federal facility and perhaps this is not the most trustworthy d._o._j. The facility is going to be very he close fisted about information at least in the short term because remember that they're investigating and they're also investigating with their own liability in mind because down the road from epstein families the state there may come a lawsuit alleging deliberate indifference to epstein's obvious risk of suicide so keep in mind and also that there should be close circuit tv possibly even in the cell itself and at m._c._c. I believe they conduct counts at three a._m. And five a._m. Now if he was found at six thirty am that leaves about an hour and a half assuming the last check was five and the reason that i raised this paul butler alert former federal prosecutor made the point earlier that this is a person who's informational <unk> potentially a threat to the united states and we know that the the prime directive of the current attorney general above everything else that he does. I've been acquiring more power for himself. As protecting the president's state this president donald trump is his client not us and so this is this is is the d._o._j. Facility somebody is in there has got information. Nobody knows what it is. There's no allegation that donald trump did anything with any of these girls. One of the woman who came out said that he did not miss is jeffrey. Miss virginia says donald trump did not do anything to her but she was. She was recruited at mar a lago. Here's his own information that this man has was injurious areas potentially to the president or embarrassing to him so no one's watching him in a federal facility. There's too much that's too weird not to ask these questions. One of the litmus test for your concerns earns will be win. The inevitable foia request goes to the facility to the federal government for things like the closed circuit tv and any documents or information about not epstein and it'll be a real tell if the facility fights back strongly against any release of foia records because foia records are about open records law the federal open records law. There are many reasons to deny access but if they tend to release information that may ten show that there's less of a cover up here and lisa. Oh you made a very good point earlier in the program for the victims of this monster over the decades at least he is no longer a threat to them but ask somebody who is representing some of these victims. Would you want such a foia request to find out exactly how this person was allowed to die however he died so <hes> and be silenced to be able to maybe provide information that can help more victims. Absolutely i can tell you in behalf of the jeffrey epstein victims who i represents they want full transparency full information.

How do I rose look from this angle like how do I smell like that? I just far like you know BEC chattering and so it's really hard to like be in your body and experience pleasure when you're not present right yeah that's that's very interesting point and obviously you know when it comes to sex at in this country or in our conversations about sex as you said it's usually like you know extremely superficial whether it be porn or the way that we cover it on magazines and <hes> on the Internet and stuff like that and so I do think there are a lot of people that are left to their own devices and I guess we can sort of move forward now <hes> to the other side the not so you know some of the dangers of of people who have sexual dysfunction and of course when we're talking about the things like pedophilia in the context of Jeffrey Epstein the word pedophile has been thrown around a lot lately certainly on our show <hes> whether it besides stories or last podcast on the left we talk about people who <hes> participate in pedophilia obviously a horrible stuff and now in the context of Jeffrey Free Epstein.

This person never acted on these impulses and these thoughts is that correct yeah and so in my research now with my dissertation. What we find is that most people who have these attractions actually don't want to or never have the desire to harm children <hes> and just to kind of clarify? I mean like you said lots of people people were throwing out this word pedophile <hes> and it's it's sort of a misnomer I mean firstly. It's such a loaded word so when we when we hear the word pedophile we immediately child Molester <hes> <hes> you know that those two are kind of synonymous <hes> secondly so if we're thinking of like diagnosis how in like the therapy world we would define header file well <hes>. It's someone who is attracted to children who are prepubescent meaning they have not gone through puberty <hes> uh-huh and so with someone like Jeffrey Epstein <hes> he kind of falls into a different category <hes> so there's another category known as <hes> keep feely us so he's Celia or have a feely..

I don't know what you call myself a racial something me and the Kenya called ourselves racial profiteers who did blackish like we're like that's kind of the business okay so that's let's talk about hip hop this. We got a lot of HIP observation. What are these what the rappers doing? What are the rappers doing? What are these rappers doing? Okay couple stories. I once the Exxon Toss Joan Triple X. Zone. A woman written did a comedy central has a show live from the cellar which airs Fridays at midnight and she did a joke about it wasn't even about the guy he's she goes. You guys morning triple Alexa Halcion sh okay that's a little condescending but whatever and then she says he went to the car dealership with seventy thousand dollars in cash and then to buy a Bugatti whatever and and he was murdered heard and that to me if nothing else is a commercial for Vento right okay so you don't have a dog in the fight you left audience left. I loved what you said. Though ski masks the slump lumped God then re post it like look at this clown now I that was all was the point that it was a bit. That's the bit commercial for Venom.

Tontons Fran <hes> fans and and Mo like death threats innumerable death threats because she made a joke that he was basically the setup of yeah. I mean I'm sure you can argue some argue. It's tasteless but cool cool so go ahead and argue it but and then she apologized comedy central took it down but it's like you Stephen motherfuckers. Why are you treating a rapper like he's Allah like the the way the way Islam feels about Allah is how people feel about beyond say and which says about it says something about the the where we are as a culture now is that that these people Dr Gods and also the guy's a wife beater or he beat up his girlfriend? So what are you did you. Did you give them a death threat then. Did you give him a death threat or you just cool with it. That's what made me think that if Jeffrey Free Epstein could rhyme he would be an none of these problems because we would just like free Jeff automatically. If a rapper does a crime he automatically must be freed the hip hop rules come home. We don't care about crime if you can rhyme no one's saying that any more about r Kelly though right now after twenty years of saying leave a wide you try to fuck up his legacy now that I'm actually proud society how they were like not are you. Finally you a pretty high standard for society that you're finding like you know what okay good ones society. Finally I just mean R Kelly. I just feel like every generation is better than the last and this generation the reason. I don't like the improve in some ways but they're also death reading so what how did they improve. I mean they need for nothing. Those death threats also think about all the fuck in vile shit dude rap about and and see a problem with saying that's a commercial for Venom..

"Player and Democratic Congressman Visiting mar-a-lago so. Doc I guess the question do you frank in addition to assuming that Donald Trump has since found and employed a new eyebrow west. Does this not hurt his argument that he was never a fan of Jeffrey Free Epstein back in the day. You can't study that video and not see someone who is very comfortable with Epstein Joking mucking it up having a great time. This is not someone who is saying. I can't associate myself with this and I think Brian we're looking at the lead commercial for Democrats in the upcoming twenty twenty campaign process play that play it over and over again and try to match it with what the president is saying about how distant he is from Epstein and you'll see it doesn't match up so Mika. This goes back to you if we've agreed that the S._D._N.. Why The feds office and Manhattan is is theoretically subject to pressure from the Home Office in Washington? How worried do you think team trump is on a legal basis with all these things? We've just covered that they are facing. I think no matter what happens team trump should be very worried because there's no question no matter what they're not always out of the Woods Epstein thought he was out of the woods with a cost and then you see many years later people coming back and say actually no oh we didn't cover all the allegations they're still more injustice that needs to be addressed and we can come back with future prosecutors and address these issues there is no circumstance in which team trump when out of office doesn't face some potential attention criminal liability to our favorite returning veterans to Frank Figliuzzi D'Amico Yang our thanks for making time to come on tonight another break for us and coming up civil rights icon Democratic Congressman John Lewis Reflecting on the a destructive and dangerous words spoken by the Commander in chief just these past few days when we come back with all that is coming out of this White House and this president earlier this evening we got the chance to speak with a living icon of the civil rights movement a thirty two year veteran of the U._S.. House of Representatives Democratic Congressman John Lewis of Georgia. We started founded by discussing the language of race that the president has employed just this week congressman. Thank you very much for coming on our broadcast tonight. I WanNa talk about how this week started from this President I have to say I'm just back from the National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery so this is all very current very top of mind but for a man like you its current and top of mind when you wake up in the morning when you get dressed its current and on top of mind every moment you are awake. Why are these tropes so damaging so destructive and apparently so irresistible for this president well? Thank you for having me tonight. Ah I don't quite understand it. I thought sometime ago that will come much farther along but discards and stains racism still deeply embedded in American society and as a shame and a disgrace that the president of the United States of America is a reflection. He's preaching the seed insulin deceit of racism and it's not right and it's not fast country. Why is this particular? Go back where you came from trope so destructive so dangerous with many people who grew up the way the idea and others not just from the south but other parts of the country we heard it over and over again. Go back to your school. Go back to your restaurant. Go back to your hotel. Go back to your country.

This is just a minor matter trump can if trunk trump is a deeply flawed person with a huge ethical baggage but when you look at these people he thinks I'm not so bad so seat Steve Dorsey briefly before the end of this particular segment. I WanNa ask you it seems surreal to listen to reporters asking trump to sort of way a- Costa's fate and say what do you think about this Sir almost in the absence of his own <hes> presence in the larger orbit of Jeffrey Free Epstein. What is what do we know what would we should? We think about President Trump's at least peripheral appearance in some of this <hes> in some of this orbit well. I think the president is also trying to put up a barrier. You're between himself his social life his perhaps financial life and his life in south Florida of course and that of Jeffrey Epstein because there were questions about <hes> how much the interacted including its social events and now the the president is taking a step to at least cut off.

"Has been indicted in Manhattan in New York for on allegations of sex trafficking in conspiracy but he's getting attention a and as is the current Labor secretary because more than ten years ago <hes> the Justice Department signed a non-prosecution agreement with this same Guy Jeffrey Epstein around similar kinds of allegations Jeffrey Free Epstein who's been linked to some very high level politicians including current President Donald Trump and former president Bill Clinton and a whole bunch of others Jeffrey Epstein actually pleaded guilty to state prostitution charges more than ten years ago. He got a thirteen. A month jail sentence but he was allowed to leave jail almost every day to work and go to lunch and that deal is now being criticized as way too lenient. The man who signed that deal was Alex Acosta than the U._S.. Attorney in Miami and now the Labor Secretary What Epstein is charged with at accused of is pretty terrible. It's as bad as it gets him. Some people have likened it to a sexual pyramid scheme but involving girls some girls as young as fourteen years old we have seen photographs of some girls who say they are survivors of sexual abuse by Epstein. They were wearing braces at the time. Some of the this conduct occurred so Kelsey the reason why Alexander cost had a press conference though is because he is now in the spotlight having to defend his decisions from from all those years ago and there's been sort of a drumbeat getting louder louder on Capitol Hill Right. I mean the thing that up here on in the capital that members of Congress willing to know is why did a cost to enter into this non-prosecution agreement for APPs then why did he serve so little and <hes> why why did a cost to step in to make sure that this happened now some members of Congress have been calling for a cost to to be removed or to resign as a result of his role in the two thousand eight case not in this new case <hes> that is working its way through in New York what his role in the non-prosecution agreement in Florida in two thousand eight Kelsey one of the things that Alex Roster tried to do to name this news conferences defend himself. He basically said he took the best deal available at the time time. We did what we did because we wanted to see Epstein go to jail. He needed to go to jail. Acosta said basically he and the feds went in on this more than ten years ago because of the <unk> state was GonNa let Jeffrey Epstein off light and it cost us said that he tried to reach a deal so that Jeffrey Epstein would have pleaded guilty to something that he would have to serve jail time and that he would have to register as a sex offender in. Finally that there would be some restitution to the victims and I know that in two thousand nineteen looking back on two thousand eight things may look different but this was the judgment of prosecutors with dozens of years of experience variance Carey. Is it true that a thirteen month plea agreement was the best they could actually do. You know I it's hard to say looking back but a lot of former prosecutors have been highly highly critical of Aleksic Kosta for trading away
