Hillary Clinton says Tulsi Gabbard is a 'Russian asset' groomed to ensure Trump reelection

Hillary Clinton said that Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is being groomed by Moscow to run as a third-party spoiler candidate in 2020 to help President Trump win re-election.

The former Secretary of State pushed the theory on the Campaign HQ podcast hosted by David Plouffe, President Barack Obama’s campaign manager in 2008.

Plouffe and Clinton discussed hurdles the Democratic nominee would and compared the 2020 race to Clinton’s loss to Trump in 2016. Plouffe asked Clinton about the part third-party candidates like Jill Stein of the Green Party played in 2016, allowing Trump to secure key states.

"They are also going to do third party again," Clinton said. "I'm not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third party candidate," Clinton said, referring to Gabbard without mentioning the Hawaii representative by name.

"She is a favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and ways of supporting her so far. That's assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she is also a Russian asset.

"They know they can't win without a third-party candidate, and so I do not know who it is going to be but I can guarantee you they will have a vigorous third-party challenge in the key states that they most need it."

In Tuesday's democratic debatem Gabbard accused the New York Times of calling her a "Russian asset." Gabbard,.

The newspaper published an Oct. 12 news article about Gabbard stating: "She is injecting a bit of chaos into her own party’s primary race, threatening to boycott that debate to protest what she sees as a 'rigging' of the 2020 election. That’s left some Democrats wondering what, exactly, she is up to in the race, while others worry about supportive signs from online bot activity and the Russian news media,"

Gabbard said on the debate stage: "The New York Times and CNN have also smeared veterans like myself for calling for an end to this regime change war [in Syria]. "Just two days ago, The New York Times put out an article saying that I’m a Russian asset and an Assad apologist, and all these different smears."


CNN’s “media coordinator” admits network is nothing but anti-Trump all the time, no serious effort made to report unbiased content

(Natural News) We’ve been working for more than two years to expose the deep state, media-driven fake narrative of “Russian collusion” regarding President Donald Trump for the fake story that it is.

There’s never been any evidence that Trump and Vladimir Putin ‘conspired’ to “steal” the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton because there was never a plot between them to do so. It was all a lie.

We’ve also maintained that the pathetically politically compromised Washington legacy media also knew that the story was garbage but that they pushed it anyway because they, long ago, threw in with Democrats to become that party’s propaganda wing — and any lie they could push to help Democrats and the Obama-aligned deep state depose Trump, they’d do it.

Well, come to find out, at least one of these fake news factories — CNN — had another motive for keeping our country divided and on the brink of self-destruction over a lie: Money.

That’s according one of the network’s own executives, who was recently exposed by undercover journalism organization Project Veritas. And he’s not really happy about that. 

Caught on undercover video, Field Ops manager Patrick Davis admits that his network pretty much publishes fake news and garbage in a never-ending campaign to get rid of Trump. And, he says, much of that is to drive up revenue with clickbait-type ‘bombshells’ that seldom turn out to be remotely accurate.

“…I hate seeing what we were and what we could be and what we’ve become. It’s just awful…I mean, we could be so much better than what we are… And the buck stops with him,” Davis said, castigating network chief Jeff Zucker. 

“I haven’t listened to a 9AM call in about 15 years. I just stopped,” he noted further. “Just, I can’t listen to it. It’s all bulls**t. It’s all just a bunch of bulls**t. And I wish that wasn’t the case.”

“You learn it in journalism school, we’re supposed to be middle of the road,” Davis continues. “Now it’s just infotainment is all it’s become. There is no true media outlet.

“Even though we’re totally Left-leaning…we don’t wanna admit it.”

There isn’t even a pretense of objectivity left at CNN

CNN stands atop the heap of Left-wing Washington establishment media, warping viewpoints and slanting nearly every story that has anything at all to do with politics in favor of the Democrats and to the detriment of Republicans.

And if Trump’s the focus of the story, CNN has gone out of its way to put him in a negative light — even at the cost of accuracy. 

Other CNN executives and editors were caught on video admitting the network’s political bias and anti-Trump slant. 

“We used to cover news. We used to go out and do stories…But Trump is more important,” said Scott Garber, a senior field engineer.

“When Zucker took over it wasn’t until Trump that we ended up being all Trump all the time,” added Adia Jacobs, a technical operations supervisor.

Noted Nick Neville, CNN media coordinator: “He (Zucker) basically said f**k all the other stories” and focus only on hurting the president.

“It’s the Trump Network, dog. It’s like everything is all Trump…they not even thinking about anybody else. They sold themselves to the devil,” said Mike Breva, a CNN floor manager. 

Gerald Sisnette, a CNN field production supervisor, concurred, but added his own disgustingly morbid take: “This is a story that’s not gonna go away. The only way this will go away is when he (Trump) dies. Hopefully soon.”

Right. The man who has turned out to be George Washington reincarnated is so widely reviled news media types are wishing for his quick demise. 

In any event, the veneer of legitimacy has been permanently ripped away from CNN. It’s a garbage network pushing crap as ‘news.’

Obama backs Canada's Trudeau in unprecedented endorsement

Canadian analysts say such an endorsement is rare, but probably won't move the polls.

Barack Obama on Wednesday urged Canadians to re-elect Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, an apparently unprecedented endorsement of a candidate in a Canadian election by a former US president.
Obama tweeted on Wednesday that he was proud to work with Trudeau and described him as a hard-working, effective leader who takes on big issues such as climate change.
"The world needs his progressive leadership now, and I hope our neighbours to the north support him for another term," Obama wrote.
Trudeau later responded with his own tweet: "Thanks my friend, we're working hard to keep our progress going."

Trudeau is in a tough re-election fight before Monday's parliamentary elections.
Robert Bothwell, a professor of Canadian history and international relations at the University of Toronto, said that might have something to do with Obama's intervention.
"Trudeau is in real danger," Bothwell said. "If I were a Liberal (Party) campaigner I would quietly point with pride to Obama's endorsement. I don't know if I'd run around touting it as a major political issue."

Bothwell said you would have to go back more than 100 years to find a US president intervening in a Canadian federal election.

He said former US President Theodore Roosevelt, who was president from 1901 to 1909, visited Toronto in 1917 when Canada was having an election about conscription and spoke in favour of it. But Bothwell said he did not know how explicit he was.

Nelson Wiseman, a political science professor at the University of Toronto, called Obama's endorsement rare and said it possibly has not happened before but he does not think it will move the polls.
"In fact, some people may feel this is an unwarranted foreign intrusion in Canada's election," Wiseman said.

Obama also endorsed Emmanuel Macron for president in France's 2017 election, and he warned British voters against backing leaving the European Union.

Trudeau formed a close relationship with Obama when he was president and the two were pictured having dinner in Ottawa earlier this year.

The former president has long been popular with many Canadians. Trudeau's Liberal Party posted Obama's message into a party fundraising pitch that was emailed directly to potential donors
Trudeau's rival, Conservative leader Andrew Scheer, said that he is "not very interested what former foreign leaders are saying". He said he would let Canadians judge whether Obama's endorsement is appropriate.

Manufactured climate hysteria of Greta Thunberg a repeat of what Severn Cullis-Suzuki did back in 1992

Image: Manufactured climate hysteria of Greta Thunberg a repeat of what Severn Cullis-Suzuki did back in 1992


(Natural News) Many people don’t realize this, but Greta Thunberg’s little climate temper tantrum at the United Nations recently has already been tried on at least one prior occasion.

It was the year 1992, in fact, when 12-year-old Severn Cullis-Suzuki of Canada spoke at the plenary session of the U.N.’s Earth Summit, which took place in Rio de Janeiro that year, saying many of the same things that Greta is now parroting.

Severn, who repeatedly spoke of her “fear” of global warming at the summit, used many of the same buzzwords as Greta, including constant references to being “just a child.” Severn also read her carefully crafted speech, which was obviously written by someone other than herself.

Just like angry Greta, Severn lamented being “afraid to breathe the air,” which in the year 1992 was said to be damaged due to “holes” in the ozone layer. Severn also expressed fear about going outside in the sunlight due to this, as well as fear of mass extinctions.

“I am fighting for my future,” Severn stated at the summit, emphasizing the trope that she was just an ordinary 12-year-old who was part of “a group of 12- and 13-year-olds trying to make a difference.”
“Losing my future is not like losing an election or a few points on the stock market. I am here to speak for all generations to come,” Severn went on to state in her fear-mongering tirade, proposing many of the same “solutions” that Greta recently did.

A full transcript of Severn’s 1992 speech at the U.N. is available at this link.

The globalists have apparently been exploiting and abusing children for decades in order to push the climate hoax

Another recurring theme present in both Severn and Greta’s eerily similar speeches before the U.N. is the idea that the United States and other Western nations need to “let go of some of our wealth” in order to stop what was then called “global warming,” and what has since been renamed as “climate change.”

Severn, who seemingly hadn’t even yet hit puberty at the time when she delivered her speech, was somehow fully adept in the socialist agenda as she shamelessly pushed for global wealth distribution in the name of “saving the planet.”

“In my country we make so much waste, we buy and throw away, buy and throw away, buy and throw away and yet northern countries will not share with the needy,” Severn stated about the average Canadian lifestyle.

“Even when we have more than enough, we are afraid to let go of some of our wealth.”

Severn went on to state that she and her fellow Canadians live a “privileged life with plenty of food, water, and shelter,” along with “watches, bicycles, computers, and television sets.” On the other hand, children in Brazil, where she spoke, have far less.

“I am only a child yet I know if all the money spent on war was spent on finding environmental answers, ending poverty and finding treaties, what a wonderful place this earth would be,” Severn further stated, emphasizing key tenets of the globalist agenda for a New World Order.

Amazingly, Severn’s diatribe contained many of the same concepts and ideas as Greta’s verbal outburst, which was presumably meant to appear “organic” and “grassroots,” but that actually echoes back to the same rehashed nonsense from Severn that had already been tried in the past.

“More child abuse from the dark, evil psychopaths who must not be named,” wrote one Zero Hedge commenter.

“By intertwining ‘climate change’ and environmental issues the high priests have engineered conversion of the masses to their nefarious mission,” wrote another.


‘Really fake news’: Trump dunks on ABC after channel claims footage from Kentucky gun range is Syria

‘Really fake news’: Trump dunks on ABC after channel claims footage from Kentucky gun range is Syria
US President Donald Trump has ripped into ABC News, scolding them for a truly humiliating mishap in which they claimed footage from a gun range in Kentucky showed a Turkish assault on Kurds in Syria.
Answering questions at a press conference with Italian President Sergio Mattarella on Wednesday, Trump called on ABC’s Jonathan Karl, who asked if he regretted giving the “green light” to Turkish President Recep Erdogan to attack the Kurds in northern Syria.
“I didn’t give him the green light,” Trump quickly shot back, before seizing the opportunity to recall ABC’s unfortunate error.
When you ask a question like that it's very deceptive, John, almost as deceptive as you showing all of the bombings taking place in Syria — and it turned out that the bombing that you showed on television took place in Kentucky.
Watching the frosty exchange, one might conclude that Trump picked Karl for the sole purpose of dunking on him in front of the rest of the White House press corps.
"You should get your accounts correct — and you shouldn't be showing buildings blowing up in Kentucky and saying it's Syria, because that really is fake news,” Trump continued.

The footage in question shows a biannual gun show at the Knob Creek Gun Range near West Point, Kentucky —  but in ABC's report, the audience watching the show had been cropped out.
ABC News issue a barely-there apology for broadcasting the fake footage, saying it "regrets the error" and removed the video "after questions were raised about its accuracy.”

Nancy Pelosi Has Likely Ordered Trump's Assassination on the 17th - Jim Stone

I made sure this is confirmed before posting something so brazen.

 Nancy Pelosi wore an orange bullet bracelet to her announcement that they won’t be pursuing Trump’s impeachment and she made it an enormous point to play with it and point directly at the bullet portion of the bracelet.

The bullet is a piece of spent brass. The bracelet has orange beads [symbolizing Trump's orange hair?]. You cannot make this stuff up, IT HAPPENED. It is at 3:50 in THIS VIDEO [time-stamped accordingly here]:

and when you combine this with Biden focusing on the 17th in other videos, I’d say there’s a real problem here. Trump had BETTER WATCH OUT.

Epstein’s ‘Madam’ Ghislaine Maxwell Traced to Brazil: Report


These Scrubbed Reports Reveal New Secrets Into the Prince Andrew-Jeffrey Epstein Relationship

Epstein Prince Andrew Feature photo

While the Jeffrey Epstein scandal has largely faded from media coverage in the United States, it has continued to attract attention abroad, particularly in the United Kingdom in connection with Epstein’s long-standing association with Prince Andrew, the Duke of York and the Queen’s son.

The Epstein-Prince Andrew relationship has long been a fascination of the U.K. press, with numerous articles dating back to the early 2000s detailing the most outrageous aspects of their relationship.

Prior to that, Epstein had also garnered attention from U.K. newspapers regarding his association with Ghislaine Maxwell, whose reputation in the U.K. is rather notorious, as was that of her father, Robert Maxwell.

Yet, since Epstein’s arrest in July, many of these older articles on Epstein and Maxwell, as well as those focusing on the Epstein-Prince Andrew relationship, have disappeared from the archives of several prominent U.K. media outlets that reported on these relationships years ago.

Several of these articles, though largely scrubbed from the internet, were recently obtained by MintPress and a review of their contents makes the likely motive behind their disappearance clear: several articles not only reference Epstein’s connection to both U.S. and Israeli intelligence years before the first investigation into Epstein’s exploitation of minors had even begun, but also reveal surprising aspects of Prince Andrew’s involvement with Epstein that strongly suggest that the Prince partook in illicit sexual activities with minors to a much greater extent than has previously been reported.

New, disturbing details of Prince Andrew’s early links to Epstein

Since Epstein was arrested the first time in 2006 and even more so after he was arrested again this past July, those named in press reports as his associates have made every effort to distance themselves from the accused pedophile and sex trafficker. For this reason, press reports that discuss Epstein long before there was any hint of the larger scandal are particularly important for understanding the true nature of Epstein’s past associations with the rich and powerful.

In light of what is now known about Epstein’s sexual blackmail operation and sex trafficking activities, several reports from the late 1990s and early 2000s contain details long since forgotten regarding Epstein’s relationship with Prince Andrew.

One particularly censored article that appeared in London’s Evening Standard in January 2001, for instance, gives several indications regarding the apparent entrapment of Prince Andrew as part of Epstein’s sexual blackmail operation, which is now known to have been connected to intelligence — specifically Israeli military intelligence, according to recent revelations in the case.

The article, written by Evening Standard journalist Nigel Rosser, quotes a personal friend of both Ghislaine Maxwell and Epstein as saying the following about their friendship with Prince Andrew:

A screenshot from a now-deleted 2001 Evening Standard article
A screenshot from a now-deleted 2001 Evening Standard article
Another friend of Maxwell and Epstein made similar claims that appear in the same article:
A screenshot from a now-deleted 2001 Evening Standard article
A screenshot from the same Evening Standard article
The article further describes Epstein and Prince Andrew as having a “curious symbiotic relationship,” adding that “wherever Ghislaine is seen with Prince Andrew, Epstein isn’t far behind.”

These quotes are particularly telling now that it is a matter of record that Epstein was seeking out rich and powerful individuals and entrapping them with minors for the purpose of blackmail. The fact that personal friends of Epstein and Maxwell at the time openly stated that their “manipulative” relationship with Prince Andrew was “very premeditated” and “probably being done for Epstein” strongly suggests that not only was the Prince entrapped, but that this type of entrapment activity was known to occur among those who were close to Epstein and Maxwell at the time.

Prince Andrew — as a member of the Royal Family, which is very protective of its social reputation, as well as the U.K. envoy for investment and trade — certainly fits into the category of people that Epstein entrapped on behalf of intelligence: rich, politically powerful, wary of damaging their social reputation, and thus susceptible to blackmail.

Notably, the year this article was published (2001), is the same year that Epstein’s most well-known accuser and victim, Virginia Giuffre (then Virginia Roberts), claims that she was introduced to Prince Andrew by Maxwell and Epstein and forced to have sex with the Prince on at least three occasions. She has also claimed that Epstein would subsequently instruct her to describe the encounters in order to learn compromising information about the Prince’s sexual habits and preferences. Her claims regarding Epstein’s trafficking of her, specifically to Prince Andrew, have since been largely corroborated by photographic evidence, flight logs, and public records.

This undated photo released by Virginia Giuffre shows Prince Andrew posing with a young Giuffre, Ghislaine Maxwell is shown standing in the background
While it appears that Prince Andrew was deliberately entrapped as part of Epstein’s intelligence-linked sexual blackmail operation, the article further suggests that Andrew’s involvement with the minors exploited by Epstein went far beyond his alleged three encounters with Giuffre.
Rosser quotes a friend of Prince Andrew’s ex-wife Sara Ferguson as saying that Andrew “used to be smart when he came back from abroad…He’s started having a girl massage him…He even travels abroad with his own massage mattress.”

During this same time period, Epstein and Maxwell also introduced Prince Andrew to “sex aid entrepreneur” Christine Drangsholt during a trip to Mar-a-Lago and describes Andrew traveling to Los Angeles, where he was seen “flirting…with a group of young girls,” and to Phuket, Thailand where he “wandered around the sex bars in the area’s red light district.” The Los Angeles trip saw Andrew accompanied by artist and close friend of Michael Jackson, Bruce Livingstone Strong, and Ghislaine Maxwell accompanied Andrew to Thailand.

The mentions of massages from a “girl” and Andrew traveling around with Maxwell and Epstein while bringing along “his own massage mattress,” are particularly striking given what is now known about Epstein’s sex trafficking and sexual blackmail operation. Court documents, police reports, and other evidence have since made it clear that “massage” was the code word Epstein and his co-conspirators used for sex with the minors he exploited and massage tables and sex toys were frequently present together in the rooms of his various residences where he forced underage girls to engage in sexual acts with him and others.

Most notable of all is the fact that claims of Prince Andrew receiving “massages” from girls during his trips with Epstein and Maxwell were published in January 2001, at least two months before Virginia Giuffre states that she was first introduced to and forced to have sex with the Prince in March of 2001. This means that the claims of Epstein- and Maxwell-brokered “massages” refer to at least one other girl, strongly suggesting that Andrew’s involvement with minors exploited by Epstein is greater than has been recently acknowledged.

Other recently reported information has added to the likelihood that Prince Andrew engaged in illicit activities with more minors than Virginia Giuffre. For instance, the FBI recently expanded its probe into Epstein’s sex trafficking network to include a specific focus on the Prince’s role. The FBI has claimed that they are reviewing claims regarding Prince Andrew made by other Epstein victims aside from Giuffre, but did not specify the nature of those claims.

Ghislaine Maxwell’s open secret

Media reports cite Prince Andrew and Ghislaine Maxwell as having developed a close relationship at least by February 2000, when Andrew had spent a week at Epstein’s controversial New York penthouse at 9 East 71st Street. One report published in 2000 by London’s Sunday Times claimed that the two were introduced by Andrew’s ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, often referred to as “Fergie” in the press, and further claims that this introduction had taken place several years prior. Epstein is alleged to have first been introduced to Andrew via Maxwell in 1999.

A screenshot from a now-deleted 2001 Evening Standard article
A screenshot from a now-deleted 2000 Sunday Times article
Years after this introduction was made, Jeffrey Epstein would provide financial assistance to Ferguson at Prince Andrew’s behest by paying Ferguson’s former personal assistant £15,000, allegedly in order to allow for “a wider restructuring of Sarah’s £5 million debts to take place,” according to The Telegraph.

Oddly, by April of that year, Maxwell and Prince Andrew were spotted by their fellow diners at a posh New York restaurant holding hands, prompting both the Prince and Maxwell to claim that their relationship was merely “platonic.” However, a separate report from 2007 in the Evening Standard refers to Maxwell as one of Prince Andrew’s former girlfriends.

Within a year of their close relationship having become public, Andrew and Ghislaine were reported to have gone on eight different vacations together, of which Epstein accompanied them for five. Andrew also brought Maxwell and Epstein to celebrate the Queen’s birthday in 2000 as his personal guests.

Several reports from this period also provide interesting insight into Maxwell’s business activities and private life. One article from 2000, published in London’s Sunday Times, states that “for all her high-profile appearances on Manhattan’s A-List merry-go-round, she [Maxwell] is secretive to the point of paranoia and her business affairs are deeply mysterious.” It goes on to say that Maxwell “has been building a business empire as opaque as father’s” — referencing Robert Maxwell’s business empire, which included multiple front companies for Israeli intelligence — and adds that “her office in Manhattan refuses to confirm even the nature or the name of her business.”

On her relationship with Epstein, it states that “he’s always kept her secrets, no one knows what their relationship is really about.” An article from 2001 claims that Maxwell’s Manhattan lifestyle, her New York residence and her vehicles were all purchased by Epstein and that she was employed as his “consultant” while also acting as his social organizer and interior designer.

One report on Maxwell — which was published by the Evening Standard in 2003, years before Epstein was first publicly revealed to be exploiting minors — contains very telling information about Maxwell’s work for Epstein. It states “Ghislaine has risen, largely thanks to property developer Epstein bankrolling her, to become queen of the billionaires’ social circuit,” adding that “Jeffrey only likes billionaires or very young women and uses Ghislaine as his social pimp.” It then discusses “rumors” that Maxwell was hosting “bizarre parties at her house to which she invites a dozen or so young girls, then brandishes a whip and teaches them how to improve their sexual techniques.”

Given what is now known about Maxwell’s role as Epstein’s procurer of underage girls and her role in “training” them in sexual techniques, this passage — again from 2003 — reveals that Epstein’s and Maxwell’s dark acts were pretty much an open secret for years prior to Epstein’s first arrest in 2007.

Jeffrey Epstein, spy and property mogul?

One recurring theme in many of these older reports from the U.K. is their mention of Epstein’s alleged ties to both U.S. and Israeli intelligence. For instance, Nigel Rosser’s 2001 article contains the following passage:

Epstein Rosser
A screenshot from a now-deleted 2001 Evening Standard article
Another article, published in 1992 in the U.K.’s Mail on Sunday, describes “rumors” that linked Epstein to the CIA and the Mossad and claimed that he had worked as “a corporate spy hired by big businesses to uncover money that had been embezzled.” In addition, an article published in 2000 in London’s Sunday Times also states of Epstein that “nobody knows whether he’s a concert pianist, property developer, CIA agent, a math teacher or a member of Mossad.”

Epstein Mossad
A screenshot from a now-deleted 2000 Sunday Times article
Notably, these rumors of Epstein’s links to intelligence have since been confirmed. The CIA-Mossad links to Epstein were detailed in a recent MintPress investigative series and several mainstream media reports have corroborated Epstein’s time as a self-described “financial bounty hunter” who hunted down embezzled funds and also hid stolen money for powerful people and governments.

Another odd commonality among these now-scrubbed articles on Epstein from the 1990s and early 2000s is that the majority of them refer to Epstein not as a “financier” or “hedge fund manager,” as has become common in more recent reports, but as a “New York property developer” and even as a “property mogul.”

For instance, the 2001 Evening Standard article introduces Epstein as an “immensely powerful New York property developer and financier” with an “intensively secret business life” who “owns properties all over the country [the U.S.].” It also states that Epstein had made millions from “his business links with the likes of Bill Gates, Donald Trump and Ohio billionaire Leslie Wexner” during the 1990s and beyond.

Epstein Bill Gates
A screenshot from a now-deleted 2001 Evening Standard article
Wexner, in addition to his other close financial ties to Epstein, was involved in several Manhattan real estate deals with Epstein and Epstein’s brother Mark while Donald Trump was then best known for his career as a New York property developer and real estate mogul. Trump is also cited in a separate article from January 2001 as being good friends with both Prince Andrew and his ex-wife.

In addition, this article’s claim regarding Epstein’s most notable “business links” in 2001 contradicts Bill Gates’ recent assertions that he never had any business relationship with Epstein and did not meet with him until 2013. Notably, Gates’ former chief scientific adviser was recently named as an alternate executor for Epstein’s will and Gates appears on the flight logs of Epstein’s now-infamous private plane. Gates, one of the world’s richest men, has since claimed that he only had met with Epstein in order to meet other wealthy people and to discuss “philanthropy.”

Another article in the Evening Standard refers to Epstein as a “property mogul.” Several other articles — such as a 2000 article from Australia’s Sunday Mail, a 1995 article from Australia’s Sun Herald, and a 1995 article from the U.K.’s Mail on Sunday — also refer to Epstein as chiefly a “property developer.” Interestingly, references to Epstein as a property developer continued to occur (though less frequently) after his first arrest in 2007 and then again after his recent arrest this past July, yet oddly only in non-U.S. newspapers. Another article states that Ghislaine Maxwell had sold property on Epstein’s behalf and was also involved in the New York real estate market.

While several articles in the early 2000s describe Epstein as both “property developer” and “financier,” even earlier articles about Epstein refer to him exclusively as a “property developer.” For instance, the 1992 article in the Mail on Sunday cited above referred to Epstein as “a shadowy, almost maverick New York property developer” and noted that, even then, Epstein appeared “to have an inexhaustible supply of money and yet no one seems able to answer the question of precisely what the source.”

As will be revealed in an upcoming MintPress investigative series, these references allude to Epstein’s shady business activities in the New York and Palm Beach real estate markets from the mid-1980s to the late-1990s that were used to launder massive amounts of money for organized crime and intelligence. It is likely for this reason that Epstein’s real estate activities during this period have been so deliberately ignored by the U.S. press, even though other aspects of his financial activities were heavily scrutinized in recent months.

Indeed, in examining Epstein’s involvement in real estate markets, particularly in New York, it becomes clear that those activities have no shortage of controversial tie-ins to the current U.S. presidential administration as well as major New York power players involved in suspect financial activity immediately prior to the September 11 attacks as well as the 2008 financial crisis. All of those connections and more will be explored in MintPress’ upcoming investigative series on the financial crimes of Jeffrey Epstein and their broader implications.

Divine intervention? Pope accidentally gives his blessing to New Orleans Saints

Pope Francis was posting about the new saints who were being canonised, but Twitter's auto function had other ideas.

There may be a few American football players giving thanks today after a possible case of divine intervention.

Pope Francis's account accidentally tweeted support for the New Orleans Saints, and the team went on to win their Sunday game with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Pope was intending to tell his followers to give thanks for the new saints, who were being canonised in a ceremony in the Vatican, but Twitter took his "#Saints" message and automatically added the team's logo.
His message added: "They walked by faith and now we invoke their intercession."
The tweet went viral, with people joking they were unsure which side to put their money on after his apparent blessing of the Louisiana team.
The New Orleans Saints responded on Twitter: "Couldn't lose after this.#Blessed and highly favored."
The Saints won 13-6 and moved on to 5-1 for the season.

Perhaps it's a good thing they weren't playing the Arizona Cardinals.


Prolific British paedophile Richard Huckle who abused 200 children stabbed to death in prison

Richard Huckle was handed 22 life sentences in 2016 for raping up to 200 babies and children in Malaysia.

One of Britain's worst paedophiles has been stabbed to death in prison, according to Sky sources.

Richard Huckle, known as the "gap year paedophile", was found dead in his cell at Full Sutton prison in Yorkshire yesterday, the source said.

The 33-year-old freelance photographer, from Ashford in Kent, was handed 22 life sentences with a minimum term of 25 years in 2016 for abusing up to 200 children.

He admitted an unprecedented number of offences against children aged between six months and 12 years from 2006 to 2014.

Huckle used religion and an English teaching qualification to gain access to children in an impoverished community in Malaysia where he raped babies, toddlers and children - some over a seven-year period.

A stream of pictures and videos of his rapes and assaults were shared with paedophiles worldwide on the dark web.

He even tried to make a business out of his horrific crimes by crowdfunding the release of the images.

He was working on a guide to help paedophiles abuse children and get away with it when he was arrested.

A Prison Service spokesman confirmed Huckle's death, while a Humberside Police spokeswoman said an investigation has been launched.

She said: "We were called shortly after 12.30pm reporting that a man had died at the prison.

"Humberside Police are working closely with the Prison Service to investigate the death of an inmate and at this time we are treating the death as suspicious."

Twenty-three children from poor Christian communities in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur were identified in 71 charges, although a "Pedopoints ledger" Huckle compiled indicated the real number of victims was much higher.

Huckle first visited Malaysia on a teaching gap year when he was 19 and later used an English teaching qualification and his professed Christianity to gain access to dozens of victims in poor communities there.

He was arrested by National Crime Agency officials who had been tipped off by Australian authorities as he arrived at Gatwick Airport on his way to spend Christmas with his family in 2014.

Investigators managed to recover more than 20,000 indecent images of children from Huckle's computer, even though he refused to give them any passwords.

But they were unable to access some encrypted files, which are believed to contain "numerous" depraved images, as well as the names of a large number of unknown potential victims.

As well as the draft of Huckle's paedophile manual, they found his "Pedopoints ledger" in which he awarded himself marks for acts of depravity with children.



Crocodile tears? Hillary Clinton tweets that ‘sickening horror’ in Syria is ‘one man’s fault’ and gets reminded of her deeds

Hillary Clinton has retweeted a post by an NBC correspondent about ‘atrocities’ unleashed by Turkey’s incursion in Syria, hinting that it’s all President Donald Trump's fault. Twitter sent her down Memory Lane.
“This sickening horror is one man’s fault,” she tweeted on Saturday night, commenting on a tweet by NBC’s Richard Engel, who said US military officials are concerned that the Turkish offensive “opens the door to BOTH ethnic cleansing of Kurds and return of ISIS/Al-Qaeda.”

Some commenters were not impressed by the ‘crocodile tears’ and ‘faux outrage,’ reminding the former secretary of state of her own role in destabilizing the Middle East.

“This entire horror in Syria wouldn’t even be happening had it not been for you, Obama, Brennan and McCain arming, funding, training and empowering Al-Qaeda and ISIS terrorists in a fanatical push to overthrow the legitimate Syrian government,” one wrote.

It was during Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state that the US led a NATO campaign against Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi on the side of groups seeking to overthrow him. Libya was plunged into chaos, with factions in Tripoli and Benghazi fighting each other, and Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) found fertile ground in the country.

Clinton was left open to widespread criticism over her handling of the September 11 attacks on the consulate in Benghazi, which saw the murder of four Americans, including US Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens. She also advocated for training and equipping moderate Syrian rebels to overthrow Bashar Assad. The arms supplied to 'moderate' militant groups in the country ended up with IS.

Trump has been bashed by both Democrats and Republicans for what they call a betrayal of Kurdish allies after Turkey started an operation in Northern Syria against the Kurds, who Ankara considers terrorists. Turkey insists that it wants to create “safe zones” for the return of refugees.



‘Dozens’ of soon-to-be-released videos document political bias at ‘the highest levels of CNN’, Project Veritas claims

Secret recordings of senior staff at CNN reveal a clear political agenda at the network, Project Veritas has declared. The soon-to-be-released tapes have inspired a trending hashtag, #ExposeCNN, on Twitter.
In the coming days, Project Veritas, a conservative watchdog group, plans to release “dozens of recordings made of officials at the highest levels of CNN, revealing a political agenda, bias and misconduct hidden from public view,” said James O’Keefe, the group’s founder.

O’Keefe said the “hidden camera muckraking” was carried out by a “CNN insider” and that the investigation will likely be “the biggest story of the year” for Project Veritas.The whistleblower – who has yet to reveal his identity – told the organization that he “started at CNN with a dream to work in media, but my dream had become a nightmare.”

While O’Keefe didn’t get into specifics, he dropped several clues about what the tapes might reveal.
“Based upon what the people in these tapes say, [the media] is no longer even doing legitimate news gathering,” he wrote. In a separate message posted to Twitter, the Project Veritas head advised CNN anchor Brian Stelter that “it might be time to recall the worst things you’ve said to CNN staff in the hallways.”

The potentially damning leaks have inspired a viral hashtag, #ExposeCNN. Although it became a trending topic in the US, Project Veritas accused the social media platform of trying to suppress the hashtag.

Bill Gates Praised Pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s Lifestyle: ‘Kind of Intriguing’

The New York Times reported Saturday that the Microsoft co-founder was charmed by Jeffrey Epstein, with whom he met several times after Epstein's release from jail.

Billionaire Bill Gates, who has repeatedly minimized his ties to Jeffrey Epstein, visited the convicted sex offender multiple times in the years after Epstein was released from prison, according to a New York Times investigation published Saturday.

Gates, the Microsoft co-founder, and Epstein met repeatedly starting in 2011, including at least three times at Epstein's Manhattan townhouse, according a Times report compiled from interviews with more than a dozen people familiar with the relationship, photographs, emails and other documents.

In one e-mail reviewed by the Times, Gates told colleagues in 2011 following his first meeting with Epstein, “His lifestyle is very different and kind of intriguing although it would not work for me.”

A Gates spokeswoman told the Times that the email “was referring only to the unique d├ęcor of the Epstein residence,” and his “habit of spontaneously bringing acquaintances in to meet Mr. Gates.”

Epstein, who was indicted in July on federal sex trafficking charges and denied bail, committed suicide in August in a federal prison.
In September, Gates admitted to the Wall Street Journal that he did meet with Epstein after the financier pleaded guilty to soliciting a minor for prostitution.

“I met him. I didn’t have any business relationship or friendship with him. I didn’t go to New Mexico or Florida or Palm Beach or any of that,” Gates told the Journal. “There were people around him who were saying, hey, if you want to raise money for global health and get more philanthropy, he knows a lot of rich people.

“Every meeting where I was with him were meetings with men. I was never at any parties or anything like that. He never donated any money to anything that I know about,” Gates added.

Epstein and Gates first met in person, according to the Times, on Jan. 31, 2011, at Epstein's Upper East Side townhouse. Eva Andersson-Dubin, a former Miss Sweden who had once dated Epstein, was also in attendance with her 15-year-old daughter for the gathering, which lasted several hours. (Andersson-Dubin and her husband, Glenn Dubin—a friend and business partner of Epstein's—declined to comment on the Times story.) Afterwards, Epstein boasted to his friends and associates: “Bill’s great.”

Gates also praised Epstein the next day in an email of his own, according to the report. “A very attractive Swedish woman and her daughter dropped by and I ended up staying there quite late,” he told colleagues.
According to the Times, Epstein also spoke with the Gates Foundation and JPMorgan on a possible multibillion-dollar global health charitable fund that would have generated enormous fees for Epstein. The fund never came to fruition and Gates' representative said the tech titan and the foundation were unaware that Epstein would have received fees from the project.

Bridgitt Arnold, Gates’s spokeswoman, told the New York Times that Gates “regrets” every meeting he had with Epstein.

Typhoon Hagibis: Millions told to evacuate in Japan as powerful storm makes landfall Typhoon Hagibis: Millions told to evacuate in Japan as powerful storm makes landfall

Flights are cancelled and train services suspended as the country braces for the heaviest rain and winds seen in 60 years.

Typhoon Hagibis, closing in from the Pacific, is expected to bring up to 80 centimetres (30 inches) of rain in the Tokyo area.

Typhoon Hagibis has made landfall in Japan, with strong winds and a heavy downpour battering Shizouka, southwest of Tokyo.

About six million people in Japan have been advised to leave their homes as winds and rains picked up before the typhoon had even arrived.

An earthquake measuring 5.3, according to the US Geological Survey, shook the areas which had been drenched by rainfall. The earthquake was in the ocean off Chiba, near Tokyo.

A 50-year-old man was killed after his car overturned in a tornado east of Tokyo, while five others were injured as gales tore the roofs off a number of houses, before the storm made landfall.

Since the typhoon arrived, it has injured at least 80 people, bringing the heaviest rain and winds seen by Japan in 60 years. There are warnings of floods and landslides.

One of the strongest typhoons to hit the country in recent years, it has already destroyed or damaged 30,000 houses and caused extensive power cuts.

And more than 16,000 households had lost power, while shops, factories subways have been shut down as a precaution.

Organisers of the Japanese Formula One Grand Prix have cancelled all practice and qualifying sessions, while two matches of the Rugby World Cup have also been scratched.

England's match against France was cancelled, and the team has returned to Miyazaki where they held their pre-tournament training camp. New Zealand's match against Italy was also cancelled.

Japan's rugby team had to wade through flood waters to get to their sodden pitch for practice, as their match against Scotland tomorrow could still go ahead if organisers believe it is safe.

World Rugby told fans of Namibia and Canada not to travel to Kamashi ahead of Sunday's planned match, as they consider whether it should be cancelled. The teams have also been advised of potential cancellation.

More than 1,600 flights have been cancelled and train services suspended.

Typhoon Hagibis was expected to bring heavy rainfall and possible mudslides

Tokyo Disneyland is also closed.

Some 17,000 police and military troops have been called up, standing ready for rescue operations, while dozens of evacuation centres have opened in coastal towns.

Hagibis, which means "speed" in Filipino, is expected to reach close to Tokyo later, dumping up to 50cm (20ins) of rain.

Yasushi Kajihara, from Japan's meteorological agency, said: "Be ready for rainfall of the kind that you have never experienced. Take all measures necessary to save your life."

Evacuation centres have opened, with people taking refuge on floors and hoping their homes would be there when they return.

Yuka Ikemura, a 24-year-old nursery school teacher, is in an evacuation centre in Tokyo with her three-year-old son, eight-month-old daughter, and their pet rabbit.

She said: "I've got small children to take care of and we live on the first floor of an old apartment."

"We brought with us the bare necessities. I'm scared to think about when we will have run out diapers and milk."

A typhoon that hit the Tokyo region in 1958 left more than 1,200 people dead and half a million houses flooded.
