The saga of Jeffrey Epstein is another story about how the mainstream media, and broadcast television “news” have failed to do their jobs. The press, in all its forms, is protected by the first amendment. Our founding fathers believed that the “fourth estate” would expose political corruption. This may have been true in the past, but today the mainstream media is complicit with the criminals in both political parties.
In 2007, Epstein pleaded guilty to charges of solicitation of prostitution and procurement of minors for prostitution in Florida. The original charges were far more serious. Epstein had been investigated for child pornography, and multiple accusations of pedophilia.
Accusations against Epstein began in the 1990’s. His parties involving underage young women and powerful men who were well-known political figures, celebrities, powerful businessmen, and even royalty became the stuff of tabloids. How much of it was fact?
That question will remain unanswered. While awaiting sentencing in August of 2019 he was found dead in his jail cell. His death remains controversial. Some experts claim that the original results of the autopsy were accurate, and others claim that he was murdered. Was his life taken to protect one or more powerful men? We will never know the truth.
The list of men who allegedly attended Epstein’s parties contains two American presidents, leaders of industry, one member of O.J. Simpson’s defense team, and a member of the royal family of England.
Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, Alan Dershowitz, and Prince Andrew of England are names mentioned as men who attended Epstein’s underage sex parties.
Trump made this statement in 2002.
“I’ve known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy,” Trump said, according to New York Magazine. “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”
Of course, there are no films of Epstein’s sex parties, but there are films of at least two parties held by Trump at Mar-a-Lago. In at least one of the parties, the only guests were young women, Epstein, and Trump.
The media aided and abetted Trump in 2016. They must support the people in 2020. The American people must be reminded that Trump admitted to being a sexual predator on the “Access Hollywood” tapes. More than 20 women have accused the orange buffoon of sexual assault. After the birth of his son, Barron, Trump had two affairs: one with a Playboy model and another with a porn star. Both women were paid ‘hush’ money and forced to sign NDA’s.
The last three years have been an embarrassment for our nation. Trump lacks morals and principles, and cannot be allowed to continue representing America.
The President of the United States must be an American; Trump is not. His beliefs are those of an autocrat, similar to Vladimir Putin, Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, and Kim Jong-un. He attacks great men and true patriots constantly.
Trump is jealous of men and women who possess superior intelligence and are loved by all Americans, with the exception of Trump’s cult. To soothe his enormous ego, your illegitimate president continues to attack Hillary Clinton, and President Obama, although their service to America is unquestioned. Trump has never sacrificed anything for his country or any other individual. His illegitimate presidency is all about him and increasing his personal wealth.
Finally, although many of the old white men who claimed the title of “president” were incapable of performing the job for which they were elected, but hey loved their country. Trump chooses not to be “presidential” and ignores the majority of the American people; serving only his cult.
Take your country back; November 3rd is coming soon.
