MAXINE WATERS ASKS FOR MONEY BACK FROM HOMELESS WOMAN ON SKID ROW

Maxine Waters Asks For Money Back From Homeless Woman on Skid Row

Bad optics.

 – AUGUST 20, 2019

While visiting LA’s poverty-stricken Skid Row, Congresswoman Maxine Waters made sure to ask for her $10 dollars in change back after buying a book from a homeless person.

The optics weren’t great.

“Waters visited the desolate on the corner of 5th and San Pedro in the heart of the city’s Skid Row, where she touted a $13 billion bill known as the “Ending Homelessness Act,” reports the American Mirror.

Along with Rep. Al Green and a gaggle of her staff, Waters visited a “tent protest” organized by homeless activist Stephanie Arnold Williams.

“I put all these tents here, with my own money,” Williams said. “Free sewing for the community. I do high-blood pressure readings. I give shade … and a place to sit.”

After purchasing a book from Williams and forgetting her name, Waters seemed overly concerned about getting back the $10 she was owed by the homeless person.

“And she’s so creative. She set up a really nice environment here, but she’s got all these educational books. And guess what? I bought the … Langston Hughes book, $10,” Waters said, waving around a $20 bill. “I need change.”

Well, that was awkward.

EPSTEIN BODYGUARD CUTS INTERVIEW SHORT WHEN ASKED ABOUT TEENAGE GIRLS, SUICIDE, TELLS REPORTER TO ‘BE CAREFUL’

Epstein Bodyguard Cuts Interview Short When Asked About Teenage Girls, Suicide, Tells Reporter to 'Be Careful'

Previously claimed Epstein received tip-offs ahead of local police visits

 | Infowars.com – AUGUST 16, 2019

Jeffrey Epstein’s longtime bodyguard, Igor Zinoviev, cut an interview short when he was asked about previous comments he’d given four years ago, describing the billionaire hedge fund manager hanging out with teenage girls and receiving special treatment from police.

In an interview Monday, Zinoviev, a former MMA fighter who also served as Epstein’s driver and personal trainer, told New York Magazine he didn’t recall responses he’d given in a previous interview four years ago, in which he discussed the billionaire pedophile’s attraction to teenage girls, local police corruption and being insulted and humiliated by him.

NY Intelligencer writer M.L. Nestel, who had previously interviewed Zinoviev in 2015 for The Daily Beast, says he noticed this time the bodyguard, whose native language is not English, seemed very nervous.

“To be honest, I didn’t expect that he’d try to back away from the assertions he made in our original interview — but he did,” Nestel wrote. “He also seemed, it is safe to say, quite nervous about saying anything at all.”

In one instance, Zinoviev backpedalled to say he didn’t recall mentioning Epstein hanging out with teenage girls.

Zinoviev: It’s not the teenage girls. I never see the teenage girls. I tell you I never see teenage girls.

Plenty of times when I work for him I never see anything unproper or teenage girls around him.

That’s what I say.

Nestel: So now you say you only saw him with women? Older than 18? 20?

Zinoviev: All what I say he has always been with girlfriends and there was a couple girls — I don’t remember their names. She was 25 and worked for him as assistant. Maybe 25 or 23 — whatever, I don’t know the age.

Nestel: Okay. But you definitely told me that last time we talked.

Zinoviev: No, no. It’s not that. He working like work-release on other stuff. And I just tell him, you know, he would order his girlfriends around, and I told him, “Calm down.” It’s not just teenage girls.

I never see teenage girls in my life at his house. That’s what it is. That’s a misunderstanding. Completely. That’s because — that’s what I’m saying. Most of the time with reporters they give me that kind of questions. “Who told you I see the teenage girls?” I never see the teenage girls in my life. And they said I was —

In another portion of the interview, Zinoviev says he believes Epstein had “help” committing suicide, but refuses to elaborate further, while adding he felt nothing after learning of his death.

Zinoviev: I’m not afraid. Beyond that just he is dead. I don’t want anything to be uncorrect. There’s too much shit in here, you know, already. He’s dead and just like, freaking people, just leave him alone.

Nestel: Hold on. When did you find out he died?

Zinoviev: Saturday or Sunday or whenever.

Nestel: What did you think when you found that out?

Zinoviev: What did I think?

Nestel: Yeah.

Zinoviev: Are you sure you want to hear what I am going to think?

Nestel: Yeah.

Zinoviev: Somebody helped him to do that.

Nestel: You think somebody helped him kill himself?

Zinoviev: Yeah.

Nestel: Okay. Why?

Zinoviev: Listen, you know, that’s going a little too deep.

Nestel: I mean, I’m just trying to understand that maybe you’d be happy he was dead or you would be upset. I don’t know. Are you even feeling anything?

Zinoviev: I’m not sad. I mean, I didn’t have anything against him, like a bad thing, you know? I don’t care about his life completely. I don’t give a, let’s say, like, crap about how he die, how he live, or how he’s managed.

Nestel next pressed the bodyguard on a previous statement in which he seemed to imply someone within the local police department would tip off Epstein prior to home visits, at which point Zinoviev grows incredibly uncomfortable, tells the reporter not to “put [himself] in trouble,” and abruptly ends the interview.

Screen Shot 2019-08-16 at 2.44.05 PM

Zinoviev: Listen, what you say is between you and me —

Nestel: You told me he would get phone calls the night before and eight o’clock the police are going to come. He would get a heads up from local police.

Zinoviev: [Silence.]

Nestel: You told me that, Igor. Want me to read the quote?

Zinoviev: Well, you can read whatever you want right now. Don’t just — you can put yourself in big trouble.

Nestel: You said: “He always do something wrong. There was some nights in question. There was at home arrest and police, before they come to the house, they call him and tell him they coming in at eight o’clock in the morning. It’s all corruption you know. It’s all bullshit.”

Zinoviev: Listen, don’t put yourself in trouble. Seriously.

Nestel: We talked about this.

Zinoviev: I understand we got this.

Nestel: I’m telling you to give you a chance to remember because we talked about this stuff. I know it’s hard. I don’t know what you mean about “put myself in trouble.”

Zinoviev: Let that go. Seriously. Let that go.

Nestel: Why is it so important? Are you worried about the local cops?

Zinoviev: Listen, you’re really smart and I’m not going to offer that over the phone right now, okay? You’re really smart. You have no idea. Please!

Nestel: What do you mean by that?

Zinoviev: I can’t explain you. I can’t explain you over the phone any of this.

Nestel: You said that last time. And we didn’t talk for years. You can tell the world who this guy was. You were with him for a long time. You know what I mean?

Zinoviev: [Silence.]

Nestel: I totally understand that you think he could have had help committing suicide.

Zinoviev: First of all, I have to go right now. I have another client.

Nestel: Still training people?

Zinoviev: Yes. But just be careful. I’m not kidding.

Nestel: What’s your email so I can send you —

Zinoviev: Don’t do any kind of that stuff. Just don’t play it. Seriously.

Nestel: Can you tell me why?

Zinoviev: I can’t. I can’t.

Nestel: May I ask you one more question?

Zinoviev: Go ahead.

Nestel: Have you been talking to anyone in the government, the FBI? Have they come to you?

Zinoviev: [Long pause] Um. Great talking to you. Seriously. We talk later.

Nestel: Really?

Zinoviev: Bye.

Nestel: All right.

Zinoviev: Bye.

Whistle-Blower Reported Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘Suicide’ on 4Chan Before the News Went Public

The details surrounding Epstein’s mysterious death paint a dark picture.

By Shane Trejo

The case of Democrat-affiliated sex criminal Jeffrey Epstein, who died in prison on Saturday morning in what has been called a suicide by the fake news media, is becoming more scandalous with every detail that emerges about his mysterious death.

A post on the free speech forum 4Chan reported about Epstein’s death before the details were made known to the public, the New York Posthas revealed. The whistle-blower reportedly made the post around 40 minutes before the Post and other news outlets broke the story.

“[D]ont ask me how I know, but Epstein died an hour ago from hanging, cardiac arrest. Screencap this,” the 4chan post said.

The New York City Fire Department (NYCFD) announced they were reviewing the matter, as it was suspected that the post was made by a first responder among their ranks. However, the NYCFD told Buzzfeed News that authorities “determined this alleged information did not come from the Fire Department.”

It is more likely the information came from an emergency medical technician (EMT). Oren Barzilay, union president for the EMT workers Local 2507 in New York, said there could be serious consequences if the whistle-blower’s identity was uncovered as an EMT because “our members do not release this type of confidential information, this looks like a 3rd party info.”

“There’s serious consequences for those violations. Discipline. Suspensions. Civil penalties, etc,” Barzilay said in an email to BuzzFeed, adding that the union may investigate a potential confidentiality breach “if such a claim came forward.”

Dr. Keith Wesley, who has written EMS manuals, told Buzzfeed that his analysis of the whistle-blower’s subsequent 4chan posts indicated that the individual was likely an EMS worker due to the industry-specific language he used in describing the details of medical procedures performed on Epstein before he was pronounced dead.

“This sounds like standard American Heart Association guidelines, which most EMS agencies use,” Wesley said.

“If one of the medics posted this separately that’s a breach of protocol,” he added. “If there was identifying information on the patient, that is a violation of Federal HIPPA law.”

The Department of Justice’s Federal Bureau of Prisons said in a statement that “staff requested emergency medical services (EMS) and life-saving efforts continued” until “Mr. Epstein was transported by EMS to a local hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries, and subsequently pronounced dead by hospital staff.”

The investigation into Epstein’s criminal continues as various law enforcement authorities conducted a raid on the late predator’s former private island, Little St. James on Monday. The footage of the raid was caught by a citizen journalist, with authorities blocking the view once they caught a drone with a camera mounted upon it observing their behavior.

That footage can be seen here:

The world is waiting for the results of the coroner’s report, which is taking an abnormally long time to take place and be reported to the public. President Donald Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr have called for a full investigation into the suspicious circumstances surrounding Epstein’s death.

Bernie Sanders: Trump Is the ‘Most Dangerous President’ in U.S. History

By Joel B. Pollak

LITTLETON, New Hampshire — Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) rounded out his two-day swing through New Hampshire at an ice cream social on Tuesday afternoon, telling a packed crowd at the Littleton Opera House that Donald Trump is “the most dangerous president” in American history.

Sanders’s pitch to the audience of 327 people — some of whom had traveled from Vermont and Massachusetts to see him — was that his campaign is best placed to defeat Trump nationwide.

A new poll Tuesday showed Sanders leading in New Hampshire, where he defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016. During that campaign, Sanders told voters that he had a better chance of defeating Trump than Clinton. Nearly four years later, many of his supporters feel that prediction has been vindicated.

Sanders touted Medicare for All, as well as proposals for gun control. He called for expanding background checks, banning “assault weapons,” ending the “gun show loophole” that allows people to purchase guns at gun shows without background checks, and for shutting down what he called the “straw man provision” — which he claimed would allow someone to “walk into a gun store, buy a dozen guns, and sell those guns to criminal elements.”

(In fact, according to the pro-gun control Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, straw purchases are already illegal under federal law: “Federal law prohibits straw purchases by criminalizing the making of false statements to an FFL [federal firearms-licensed dealer] about a material fact on ATF Form 4473, or presenting false identification in connection with the firearm purchase.”)

Sanders also told the audience that “Medicare for All” enjoyed majority support — which is true, though polls also show “Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents” prefer a policy that builds on Obamacare, rather than replacing it with a single-payer system, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

Sanders concluded by telling the audience that he was fighting the “corporate power elite in America whose greed and corruption has destroyed the middle class of the country.”

“I cannot take them on alone,” he added, urging them to join his effort to win the presidency. “That’s what this campaign is about … I am asking your help, the day after we are inaugurated, to work with me to stand up to the corporate elite and tell them that this country does not belong to a handful of billionaires. It belongs to all of us.”

During the question-and-answer session, answering a query about the Department of Veterans Affairs from a young veteran with a large blond Afro, Sanders quipped: “That’s what my hair looked like a few years ago.”

Edith Labonte, who drove to the event from Cabot, Vermont, told Breitbart News that she is confident Sanders will win the state.

“He’s gonna win. He has to,” she said. “He’s for the people. There’s no other president that has been directly for the people like he has … I love Bernie.”

Hungary Announces Investigation into Social Media Censorship in Europe

social media censorship

By Chris Tomlinson

Hungarian Justice Minister Judit Varga has announced that she will be starting an investigation into censorship of political views on social media in Hungary and across Europe.

The Hungarian minister made her announcement on social media platform Facebook over the weekend, saying she would be creating a “working group” within the ministry to “investigate the possibilities for a legal environment to ensure the transparency of social media service providers – both on EU and national level.”

“Originally their job would not be to influence societal processes and elections by censoring comments on an ideological basis, however, if they had done it once they shall accept the necessity of the regulation and follow the rules of democracy,” she added.

The announcement comes only a month after Emmanuel Macron’s government announced it would be taking the opposite view and would look to force search engines and social media networks to censor “hate speech” in France.

The measure, which was passed in early July, would see large fines for internet companies who do not remove offending material within a 24-hour period.

The European Union has also pushed for censorship of “hate speech” on social media in recent years, including proposing a similar law to the French legislation in September of last year.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government has also demanded social media companies remove “hate speech” and introduced fines of up to 50 million euros for companies which violate the policy.

Social media censorship has been a major issue in the United States with President Donald J. Trump looking to use various agencies, including the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), to potentially regulate online censorship through an executive order.

A leaked draft of the executive order, entitled “Protecting Americans from Online Censorship,” would allow the FCC to change how social media companies are treated under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act which allows tech companies to censor lewd or questionable content.

PATHOLOGIST CONNECTED TO JFK INVESTIGATION TO CONDUCT AUTOPSY ON EPSTEIN

Pathologist Connected to JFK Investigation to Conduct Autopsy on Epstein

Let the conspiracy theories commence.

By Paul Joseph Watson – AUGUST 12, 2019

Pathologist Michael Baden, who served as chairman of the House Select Committee on Assassinations’ Forensic Pathology Panel that investigated the assassination of John F. Kennedy, is set to conduct an independent autopsy on Jeffrey Epstein.

“Epstein’s representatives have hired celebrity pathologist Michael Baden to conduct an independent autopsy and they were allowed to observe the autopsy,” reports the Daily Beast.

As chairman of the investigation into the JFK assassination, Baden bolstered the official story that Kennedy was killed by a single bullet, also known as the “magic bullet” theory.

Baden, whose career has revolved around investigating high profile deaths, also testified at the trials of OJ Simpson and Phil Spector.

Some are wondering whether having Baden carry out the autopsy is a good idea given the deluge of conspiracy theories circulating about Epstein’s alleged “suicide.”

“Of course, this may or may not mean anything at all,” comments Vlad Tapes. But getting a coroner connected to these cases doesn’t strike one as the way to lead to confidence in transparency of the process.”

Baden already observed the official autopsy carried out on Epstein by Chief Medical Examiner Barbara Sampson. The results of the autopsy have been delayed “pending further information at this time.”

It doesn’t take a tin-foil hat to smell a rat in Epstein’s ‘way too convenient’ death

Screen Shot 2019-08-12 at 10.06.25 AM

By Neil Clark

The death of disgraced financier, pedophile and alleged blackmailer Jeffrey Epstein came just a day after more court documents were unsealed, leading to speculation he may have been “suicided” to stop his case from going to trial.

On Saturday morning, I was discussing Jeffrey Epstein with a friend. “He’ll be bumped off and found dead in his cell,”was my friend’s prediction. “It won’t come to court.”

A few hours later, I went on Twitter to see what was happening in the world and I saw #EpsteinMurder trending.

The whole thing was quite uncanny.

Let’s be honest: has there been a death of a high-profile prisoner whose expiration has been so unsurprising?

Suicide (non-)watch: What we know about Jeffrey Epstein’s death…and what we don’t

Screen Shot 2019-08-12 at 10.09.41 AM

Anyone claiming this time last week that Epstein wouldn’t make it to trial because too many very rich and very important people would be dragged in would of course have been dismissed as a “conspiracy theorist.”

But this morning, it’s the “don’t be so stupid, of course he’ll make it to the courtroom” brigade who are looking rather silly – and you could also argue, quite naive.

If this means we get more open discussion on “conspiracy theories,” it can only be a good thing. Here’s why. When it comes to conspiracy theories, there are three types of people. There are well-paid, establishment gatekeepers who routinely use the CT term to gaslight people and close down legitimate debate. At the same time, these gatekeepers are themselves often the biggest pushers of conspiracy theories – but only when it comes to “official enemies.” Let’s not forget that the deadliest conspiracy theory of this century so far was the one suggesting that Iraq possessed WMDs in 2003. It was, by and large, peddled by those who routinely scoff at conspiracy theorists and label them“cranks.” The same people are also very quick to blame Russia for just about everything, regardless of the lack of hard evidence.

The second category are those who seem to believe everything – or at least almost everything – is a conspiracy. The Moon landings were faked. Elvis never died. Sandy Hook never happened. Every terrorist attack is a “false-flag.” I was once accused by someone at a public meeting of being a member of ‘Agenda 21.’ The fact that I didn’t know what she was on about was proof that I was really an ‘Agenda 21 agent.’

The third category – and this is where surely all sensible people are – accept that while not everything is a conspiracy, it’s actually quite daft to think conspiracies never occur, especially when people involved are very wealthy and very powerful and the stakes are extremely high.

Put another way, did you really think, deep down, given who he was, the people who he was associated with – and the nature of the allegations – that Epstein’s case would ever get to court? Be honest. I’d reckon about 90 percent, even though they might not publicly admit it, would entertain serious doubts.

Screen Shot 2019-08-12 at 10.12.20 AM

You really don’t have to be overly suspicious – or be a permanent tin-foil hat wearer to smell a rat in this one.

Screen Shot 2019-08-12 at 10.13.12 AM

If, as was reported, Epstein did try to kill himself about three weeks ago, why was he taken off suicide watch just six days later? Who made that seemingly baffling decision? If he was still on suicide watch – and the source cited in the New York Times was wrong, why wasn’t his death prevented?

These are only a few of the many questions that need to be answered. What is particularly interesting is the kind of people demanding answers. It’s not just the “usual” suspects who are routinely labeled cranks by the gatekeepers. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has called Epstein’s death “way too convenient.”

“How many other millionaires and billionaires were part of the illegal activities that he was engaged in?” he asked. Even the BBC website has as its heading of a news story today “Jeffrey Epstein: Questions raised over financier’s death.”

The FBI is investigating the case and who knows, we may get some answers. Perhaps Epstein did after all, kill himself – prisoners facing the prospect of 45 years in jail are quite likely to be depressed; moreover the sociopathic billionaire might even have relished evading justice and depriving his accusers of their days in court. But until more evidence of his suicide comes to light, (and we really do need to see some camera footage), it is reasonable to think that some other explanation is, on balance, more likely.

Taking that line doesn’t make you barmy – just someone who very sensibly breaks with the binary when it comes to“conspiracy theories.”
