Convicted child sex ring operator murdered in federal prison 2 Jan. 2019

Here’s more blinking red lights I didn’t know about...

3 charged with killing sex ring mastermind in prison

Robert Snell
The Detroit News, Aug. 21, 2019 |

Detroit — Three prison inmates stabbed, beat, kicked and stomped to death Christian Maire, the mastermind of an international child exploitation ring who was killed inside the federal detention center in Milan in January, according to an indictment unsealed Wednesday.

Alex "Sniper" Castro, 39, Jason "J" Kechego, 38, and Adam "Creeper" Wright, 39, were charged with first-degree premeditated murder and accused of conspiring to prey upon smaller, weaker inmates, including Maire and another member of the child exploitation ring, Michael Figura, prosecutors said.


Maire and Figura belonged to an international child exploitation ring that perfected the art of preying on preteen and teenage girls. Members of the ring who were called hunters posed as teenage boys and trolled social media websites to lure victims to a private online chatroom before manipulating more than 100 children, including at least one from Metro Detroit, to strip, masturbate and perform sex acts on camera.


This attack should have been in the institutional memory, another reminder Epstein was in danger — whether he also was a danger to himself is secondary. Epstein told the NYT he had compromising info on the rich and powerful. Epstein thus was a threat to the perverts at the top of the elite heap until he died.

Trump Is Hell

It’s not just other people, anymore. It’s just one guy.

Welcome to the Trump dictatorship

by Lucian K. Truscott IV

Another week of shaking our heads and wondering how much longer we can survive him. Yet again, Donald Trump overwhelmed practically everything with the force of his obscene personality, running his mouth and his thumbs even while he was failing to run the country in any sort of conventional sense. He doesn’t actually do anything, but he dominates everything. Living in America today is like being trapped in a room with him — no doors, no windows, no exits, only Trump and the sound of Trump and the hideous image of Trump, all day, every day, for day after day after day.

I was trying to think how to describe what it feels like to live in this country today when I came across a big profile of Neil Young published in this weekend’s New York Times Magazine. The author, David Samuels, was commiserating with Young about the state of music in the age of Spotify and Apple and the digitization of everything comprised of musical notes. Surveying a landscape into which he doesn’t feel he fits anymore, Samuels described Young as “stumped.” “I’ve got great melodies, and the words are all profanities,” Young said.

Exactly. That’s America in the age of Trump, why everyone’s Facebook posts are screams of frustration and anger stuffed with profanity. The sense of powerlessness is almost overwhelming. You don’t feel like you can actually do anything. Everything is in stasis, stuck. Neil Young is right. We’re stumped.

Our senses dictate how we experience the world — our hearing and sight and touch and smell, even the ineffable stuff like intuition and belief. But when our senses are overwhelmed by someone like Trump, when our lives seem filled with a man who does nothing but endlessly tweet and lie and hate, it kills us inside. Trump is killing us.



So that’s why we must get rid of him, ASAFP.

His first cellmate was a hulking cop charged with a quadruple murder.

Nicholas Tartaglione denied making the marks on Epstein’s neck when the presidents’ friend was found unresponsive in his cell the first time.

King vs Con

“Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'” — Martin Luther King, Jr.

Trump is absolutely right to say, "I'm the chosen one."

And he scrubbed it from the Helsinki press conference transcript.

URI Friedman of The Atlantic:


Understanding what Putin said depends on what you watch or where you look. If you watch the video of the news conference provided by the Russian government, or by news outlets such as PBS and the Associated Press, you will hear the Reuters reporter Jeff Mason ask a bombshell of a question: “President Putin, did you want President Trump to win the election and did you direct any of your officials to help him do that?”

Putin then responds with a bombshell of an answer, according to the English translation of his remarks that was broadcast during the press conference: “Yes, I did. Yes, I did. Because he talked about bringing the U.S.-Russia relationship back to normal.”

Trump was chosen because he would do what was best for Russia.

Jimmy Savile wasn't mentioned much by America's MSM

Jimmy Savile admitted getting knighthood was 'a relief because it got me off the hook'

In light of the new Louis Theroux documentary on the disgraced broadcaster, this compelling and disquieting interview by the celebrated journalist Lynn Barber takes on new meaning. It was first published in 1990 in The Independent on Sunday

Sunday 2 October 2016


Still, I was nervous when I told him: “What people say is that you like little girls.” He reacted with a flurry of funny-voice Jimmy Savile patter, which is what he does when he’s getting his bearings: “Ah now. Sure. Now then. Now then. First of all, I happen to be in the pop business, which is teenagers – that’s No 1. So when I go anywhere it’s the young ones that come round me.

“Now what the tabloids don’t realise is that the young girls in question don’t gather round me because of me – it’s because I know the people they love, the stars, because they know I saw Bros last week or Wet Wet Wet. Now you, watching from afar, might say ‘Look at those young girls throwing themselves at him’, whereas in actual fact it’s exactly the opposite. I am of no interest to them, except in a purely platonic way.

“A lot of disc jockeys make the mistake of thinking that they’re sex symbols and then they get a rude awakening. But I always realised that I was a service industry. Like, because I knew Cliff [Richard] before he’d even made a record, all the Cliff fans would bust a gut to meet me, so that I could tell them stories about their idol. But if I’d said, ‘Come round, so that I can tell you stories about me’ or ‘Come round, so that you can fall into my arms’ they’d have said: ‘What! On yer bike!’ But because reporters don’t understand the nuances of all that, they say, ‘A-ha.’”

Let's add Kenneth STARR to list...

From Rolling Stone:

In addition to Alan Dershowitz, attorney Kenneth Starr — yes, that Ken Starr — also defended Epstein in 2007 and reportedly played a “significant part” in helping to secure his plea agreement, according to Dershowitz. Also according to Dershowitz, the lawyer who investigated the Monica Lewinsky scandal was recruited to help Epstein because “Starr had experience in investigating sex investigations. He had experience as the solicitor general and as a judge. He had all the bases covered,” he told the Daily Beast in 2015. Along with Dershowitz, Starr was also listed as a recipient of emails from Florida prosecutors discussing withholding the terms of the plea agreement from Epstein’s alleged victims.

Let's add Rudy GIULIANI to the list of pols who won't miss Jeffrey Epstein.

Rudy Giuliani when Epstein was alive:

“If you spent this much time with him and he was so involved with these underaged girls — who did you see him with and what was he doing and what did he tell you and what did he say to you and how could you have missed it,” he told Hill.TV. “Maybe some were innocent — maybe some weren’t, but I think they’re going to investigate everybody.”

Now that Epstein is deceased:

"I don't understand how anyone can explain not having him under 24-hour surveillance or not checking the camera constantly... The camera wasn't working. There's a camera in every part of a prison. Every single telephone call in and out of prison is listened to. Prisons are prisons. Now the federal prison system, I used to be in charge of it in the Reagan administration and then I worked with it for 15 years... The federal prison system is the best in the world... It's hard for me to believe this could possibly happen."

Three Big Pols Who Won't Miss Jeffrey Epstein.

1.) William Barr — US Attorney General Barr’s dad Donald Barr hired Epstein to teach at The Dalton School, decades later he would oversee Epstein’s arrest and incarceration.

2.) Alexander Acosta — When serving as a US Attorney, former Secretary of Labor Acosta arranged a most lenient plea deal that served to protect child sexual predator Epstein from his accusers and justice.

3.) Donald Trump — Trump partied hearty with Epstein and his entourage, selected Acosta to head the Department of Labor which investigates sex trafficking, and hired Barr to cover up things that include the Mueller Report.
