Epstein tapes? What Epstein tapes? – With rumors continuing to circulate that Ghislaine Maxwell has copies of all of Jeffrey Epstein’s illicit client sex tapes and plans to use them as a means of making a deal with the U.S. Department of Justice, now seems a good time to warn everyone to temper your expectations here.
Understand that, because Ms. Maxwell is being held in a federal lockup in New York City, her case will be prosecuted by the Southern District of New York (SDNY). That would be the very same SDNY that has had access to Anthony Weiner’s laptop computer since 2016 and has done absolutely nothing with it. Historically, the SDNY has been the place where cases inconvenient to the DC Swamp go to die.
We can hope that the steps William Barr has taken recently – the firing of lead U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman being the most obvious among them – will change that rule of thumb for this case, but hope is all we have.
Speaking of cases going to New York City to die… – Yesterday, Ms. Maxwell’s clothes were taken from her and replaced with paper clothing as federal officials now fear she might commit “suicide” just like Epstein did (not do) last August.
From a story at Business Insider:
Federal officials were so worried Jeffrey Epstein’s longtime confidante Ghislaine Maxwell might take her own life after her arrest that they took away her clothes and sheets and made her wear paper attire while in custody, an official familiar with the matter told The Associated Press.
The steps to ensure Maxwell’s safety while she’s locked up at a federal jail in New York City extend far beyond the measures federal officials took when they first arrested her in New Hampshire last week.
The Justice Department has implemented additional safety protocols and federal officials, outside of the Bureau of Prisons, have been specifically tasked with ensuring there’s adequate protection and the prisons protocols are being followed, the official said. The protections are in case she harms herself, and in case other inmates wish to harm her.
Oh, gee, guess what? Jeffrey Epstein himself was also placed on suicide watch shortly after his arrest last July, because of “concerns” by those same federal officials. Guess what else? Epstein was conveniently taken off of suicide watch – and the special security measures that come with that status – just a few days before he committed (not really) “suicide.”
You see where this is going, right? Right. So far, Maxwell’s getting exactly the same narrative that Epstein got.
Pray for this wretched human being’s safety. She needs all the help she can get.
For those who thought there was no silver lining to this COVID-19 deal, I give you this…

If you insist on being obsessed with polls, here’s one for you. – The UK Sunday Express has a new poll out that indicates that the radical, Marxist Black Lives Matter-led riots and demonstrations are doing a lot of harm to Joe Biden and the Democrats.
THE FALLOUT from the Black Lives Matter protests in the US offers Donald Trump his best chance of winning the Presidential election, a shock poll for the Sunday Express has revealed.
According to the poll conducted by the Washington based thinktank the Democracy Institute, President Trump is neck and neck with his rival Joe Biden on 47 percent. However, Mr Trump would win in the electoral college system by 309 to 229 delegates because he is on course to win the crucial swing states including Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin where he outpolls Vice President Biden by 48 percent to 44 percent.
The findings come as the US President went to the iconic Mount Rushmore to make a speech attacking “the angry mobs” who want to erase America’s history.
He told the crowd of supporters: “There is a new far-left fascism that demands absolute allegiance. If you do not speak its language, perform its rituals, recite its mantras, and follow its commandments then you will be censored, banished, blacklisted, persecuted, and punished. Not gonna happen to us.”
According to the poll, the concerns over the effects of the protests appear to be boosting Mr Trump’s chances even though his campaign is believed to be flagging.
Given a choice between which phrases identified their views 71 percent chose “all lives matter” while 29 percent picked “black lives matter”.
Now, is this poll any more valid than those polls showing Biden with an 8 to 12 point lead? Probably not. But there are two key things to emphasize about it:
– It was taken right in the wake of President Trump’s speech at Mount Rushmore, and
– That preference question at the end between “Black Lives Matter” or “All Lives Matter” is extremely telling, given that 98% of our corrupt news media has been trying to shame every American against believing the latter for five long years now.
Make no mistake about it, the President’s speech at Mount Rushmore was essentially the kickoff point to his general election campaign. Before that, other than the Tulsa rally, he had not been campaigning at all.
Trump is armed with an enormous financial war chest now, and he is about to start flooding the airwaves with both positive messages about America’s rapid economic recovery and negative messages about Biden’s obvious elderly state and cognitive decline. Biden himself has provided an amazing wealth of moments for the Trump media people to pick and choose from.
Polls taken before one candidate – as all of those corrupt U.S. media polls have been to this point – are utterly meaningless and should be ignored. The Trump campaign will begin in earnest in the coming weeks. If you see him still trailing significantly in the legitimate polls like Trafalgar, Rasmussen and HarrisX in late September, then you might want to start getting a little concerned.
For now, you should remain calm and confident that Trump is going to WIN. Because WINNING is what he does.
That is all.
