President Trump showed on Sunday night that despite his years of expertise in watching news show after news show and despite having done dozens of interviews with Fox News anchors over the years, he understands little about the programming scam of his most loyal cable-news buddies.

Before getting into any of the unseemly nitty-gritty of the tweets, just pause to consider the broader picture: Here’s the president of the United States tweeting about the shortcomings of cable news on a Sunday night. A Sunday night, which is perhaps the deadest news time of the entire week. A Sunday night, when a president of the United States could be plowing through piles of briefings, government reports and studies. But Sunday night is just like any other part of the week for this president of the United States — a time to extract information from a low-information cable-news channel.

We all know Clinton was Epstein's pimp. Along with Whitewater, flat earth, moon landings, Benghazi & black helicopters. NEVER forget the black helicopters...

The thing that everyone seems to ignore about the Epstein plea was that it pretty much provided immunity for everyone beyond Epstein. If you went to one of Epstein's parties and had sex with a 14 year old you can't be charged. The plea is an indictment of the American judicial system which is colorblind to all colors but green. The rich and powerful were up to their scrotums in Epstein's depravity, hence the plea.

I would love to see someone try to duck indictment by claiming immunity under someone else's plea deal. I would also fire any prosecutor who couldn't work around it (or at least tried wicked hard to...then they might get 2 weeks on KP at my governor's mansion).

Thats the infamous wedding dress paid for by Clinton Foundation funds, incidentally.


Incredible that this has been playing out infront of our very eyes, for years, yet nothing was ever done...

Equally incredible is the lack of story when it comes to how Epstein became a billionaire....now, THERES a story.

You're still talking?

I thought maybe we were gonna get lucky and you'd end up killing yourself in that baby gender reveal gone bad

not that you'd intend on it, of course, but totally on accident

because you're absolutely that kind of idiot

Epstein’s mysterious career

According to a 2002 profile in "New York"Mag — the one with the Trump quote — Epstein dropped out of Cooper Union and NYU’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences before finding a job teaching calculus and physics at the Dalton School in the mid-1970s. Epstein was hired at the prestigious Manhattan college-prep institution by the father of Attorney General William Barr, and his students included the son of Bear Stearns chairman Alan Greenberg. In 1976, Epstein joined Bear as a floor trader’s assistant, making partner in a mere four years. By 1981, he was out, setting up the J. Epstein & Co. money-management business the next year. New York described his business strategy in 2002:

He would take total control of the billion dollars, charge a flat fee, and assume power of attorney to do whatever he thought was necessary to advance his client’s financial cause. And he remained true to the $1 billion entry fee. According to people who know him, if you were worth $700 million and felt the need for the services of Epstein and Co., you would receive a not-so-polite no-thank-you from Epstein.

Sure.
Guy drops out of Uni, no degrees. Lands job teaching physics and maths at millionaire-level school in Manhattan( currently $51K p.a. grades K-12 ), gets headhunted by Bear Stearns Chairman. Becomes partner in 4 years, then opens his own company.

His business brief to potential clients?

You needed $1 billion to play.

Epstein has power of attorney over said money....

But in 1982 the US only had 13 billionaires....

https://hypertextbook.com/facts/2005/MichelleLee.shtml

No probs. folklore has it the billionaires flocked to him and he began trading. Somehow.

No marketing. no fireworks.

Jeffrey Epstein was open for business for those with a $ 1 Billion +

And so it began.

Nothing about this mans career OR business makes sense.

Was his business extortion?

Do the CD's found in his safe in NY last weekend labelled " young (name) + ( name ) " imply this?

I see Epstein shipped a 53 Ib shredder from his Virgin island home to his palm Beach home, followed by a Carpet/Tiling Extractor, earlier this year.... the mind boggles.
