Robert Mueller's FBI Gave Orgy Island Billionaire Epstein Easy Go ‐ Today Details Were Released on His Widespread Child Sex Abuse
[Miami Herald via Gateway Pundit] On Wednesday The Miami Herald published an extensive report on Democrat donor and Clinton condfidante Jeffrey Epstein’s child sex.

Epstein abused dozens, if not hundreds, of teen girls.

It is well documented that former President Bill Clinton flew on convicted child sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet.

And Robert Mueller was FBI director when Epstein was given a lenient 13 month jail stint for his years of child sex abuse.

Miami Herald article entitled "Perversion of Justice - For years, Jeffrey Epstein abused teen girls, police say. A timeline of his case" found at this link.

#1  Then 'lest we forget' there was the summary deportation of lovely Russian Spy Anna Chapman and crew in 2012.

(They've plead guilty as we had hoped! Quick, get them all out of here. The leased plane is waiting, the 'spy swap' story has been released.)

[Wiki] In 2012, FBI counter-intelligence chief Frank Figliuzzi said that Chapman almost caught a senior member of President Barack Obama's cabinet in a honey trap operation. This was reported as a primary motive behind the government's action to round up the ten-person spy ring in which she was a member. The plan reportedly would have involved Chapman seducing her target before extracting information from him.[33] Subsequent reporting suggested that these initial reports were sensational misinterpretation. Officials from the US Department of Justice claimed that the FBI's concern was that another of the alleged spies, Cynthia Murphy, "had been in contact with a fundraiser and 'personal friend' of..... Hillary Clinton".[34]

In September 2015, Russian online magazine Starhit reported that Chapman had given birth to her first child, a son; the identity of the child's father was not revealed.[35]


The Murphy's were Russian Non-Official Cover (NOC) operatives. Russian collusion anyone ?

#2  Lots of morons thought The Americans was a great TeeVee show. So they are primed for this...

#3  Chapman's son should be three or nearly four by now. Strangely, no foto's available. Two possibilities, the tyke speaks fluent Arkansonian, or he's getting calls from his father sequestered at the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

Hence Huma's "marriage" to a beard that backfired so badly...

#7  Lynch and Clinton discussions at Sky Harbor Airport:

Perhaps, only perhaps.... they actually were talking about children ?
Posted by: Besoeker || 11/29/2018 7:21 Comments || Top||

#8  Chapman's father was a KGB agent in Kenya when Anna was born. Did he know Obama's father?
Posted by: JohnQC || 11/29/2018 11:06 Comments || Top||

#9  given a lenient 13 month jail stint for his years of child sex abuse Surely there were more victims yet to be identified. What about state charges the FBI has little to do with? When will just one of them surface? Or is Arkancide that effective?
Posted by: Anguper Hupomosing9418 || 11/29/2018 11:56 Comments || Top||

#10  As I recall the judge sealed the records on the Epstein case to protect the wealthy, guilty and Deepstate players. Hildabeast took 6 trips to Little St. James in addition to Slicks many trips.

Don't these arseholes ever get the justice they deserve?

And if she doesn't succeed the first time, maybe try for best two out of tbree.

Texas court upholds conviction of woman sentenced to 8 years in prison for voter fraud
[FOXNEWS] An appeals court upheld last year’s conviction of a Texas woman who officials said voted illegally multiple times, Attorney General Ken Paxton said Tuesday.

Rosa Maria Ortega, a green card holder, is a permanent resident who lives in the Dallas area. On voter registration forms, Ortega marked she was a U.S. citizen ‐ allowing her to vote "illegally for more than 10 years," Paxton’s office said.

The mother of four was sentenced to eight years in prison with parole eligibility in less than one year. She was also fined $5,000. The Texas 2nd Court of Appeals upheld the conviction Tuesday.

The attorney general’s office said it had offered Ortega a lesser punishment so she could avoid prison ‐ just two years of community supervision ‐ but she declined and chose a jury trial instead.

#3  But her children! Whaddabout the children?
Posted by: Bobby || 11/29/2018 8:30 Comments || Top||

#4  ...Ortega, a single mother of four children ages 13 to 16. Voted Republican.

Birdsall [her attorney] also claimed he and [Texas A.G.] Paxton had an agreement worked out, in which he would dismiss the felonies as long as Ortega accompanied him to the state legislature and spoke in favor of changing voting procedures.

However, Tarrant County District Attorney Sharen Wilson
[R] “killed that resolution,” Birdsall said. WaPo

Voting illegally for Republicans? The rarest of the 'rare'. Charged by a Republican? Not let off the hook by another Republican? Clearly, the Pubs do not offer special treatment for their supporters!

#7  Snipes going to serve some time in Florida? California ought to be fertile ground for election fraud convictions as well? How about AZ? Perhaps the DNC should be viewed as a RICO organization.

Clintons' Speaking Tour Opens to 83% Empty Seats, Coughing Fit
[Breitbart] Bill and Hillary Clinton’s 13-city speaking tour opened in Toronto to a near-empty arena and a coughing fit.

The Daily Mail reports that this latest money grab from the Clintons managed to attract only 3,300 in a stadium that holds 19,800 ‐ which works out to 83 percent empty. This figure is made even more embarrassing by the fact that as the date of the event neared, the venue was not able to give tickets away at just $6.55 each. Ticket prices started between $200 and $53 Canadian.

On top of that, in the middle of the event, Hillary had one of her famous coughing fits, which was caught on video.

#4  I predict record 'views' to this posting and video.

Half are checking to see if she fell over while coughing and the other half are hoping she remained standing somehow.

#5  83% of seats empty even when tickets were going for $6.55--less than the price of a movie or a couple of beers.

The Clinton Foudation is being investigated down in Arkansas. All the quid-pro-quo influence peddling schemes drying up?

#6  It's amazing how many intractable problems are only ever solved by outliving the b*astard.

#7  Eventually, this "facial recognition" stuff means you will be able to see who exactly attends this kind of thing. That will be informative.

Fox News: Flake flops
Outgoing Arizona GOP Sen. Jeff Flake blocked in bid to force vote on save-Mueller bill, as Trump court pick, Thomas Farr for the Eastern District of North Carolina caught in crossfire.

#1  Yes, and he flopped right over into making Grassley cancel all the rest of the Judiciary Committee judge votes for the remainder of the year. They will have to be re-nominated in 2019 so that Murkey and Sasse can take up the fight.

#4  msn/ the hill ^ | November 28, 2018
The Senate advanced a controversial judicial pick for President Trump on Wednesday after Vice President Pence cast a tie-breaking vote for the nomination. Senators were deadlocked 50-50 to end debate on Thomas Farr's nomination to be a district judge for the Eastern District of North Carolina. Pence, presiding over the chamber, then cast the tie-breaking vote. The fate of Farr's nomination was held in suspense even going into the start of the vote on Wednesday afternoon.

#5  Another RINO bites the dust.

#6  Republicans will have a comfortable senate majority in the next session. They can start pumping through judges at whatever rate they want, right? What does Flake get except a weekends worth of atta boys at liberal parties.

#7  C'mon now. A little sympathy for a little boy who grew up with the name "Flake". I'm sure he was teased and tormented and soon began believing he was, indeed, a 'flake' and acting out as one. Let's all do our part in rehabbing the man by referring to him by a new name, a name that reflects the inner man - "F*ckwad"
