Tag: Jeffrey Epstein

Alana Goodman and Daniel Halper joined Ben Domenech to discuss one of the biggest criminals in recent history, Jeffrey Epstein, whose death has sparked major controversy within the last year. Goodman and Halper shared their knowledge and research from their new book, “A Convenient Death,” in which they investigate the mysterious demise of Jeffrey Epstein. After investigating his death, Goodman said evidence strongly suggests there was foul play involved.

We’ve got three compelling martinis to help you ease back into that first day back at work or school.  Join Jim and Greg as they applaud comedian Ricky Gervais for hammering Hollywood for its hypocrisy and self-importance at the Golden Globe Awards Sunday evening on topics ranging from Harvey Weinstein to Jeffrey Epstein to Chinese sweat shops.  Jim also urges President Trump to stop threatening to strike cultural sites in Iran because military targets make much more sense and discussing cultural sites could turn other nations against us.  And they cringe as the video of Julian Castro endorsing Elizabeth Warren comes across as inauthentic, with Castro coming to Warren’s house, telling Warren how wonderful she is, and Warren agreeing with him.

The Epstein Meme Is Cause for Concern

 

Marcus Porcius Cato, also known as Cato the Elder, the great Plebeian soldier, statesman and defender of ancient republican virtues, in his later years is said to have closed all his public speeches with the words, “And furthermore I am of the opinion that Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself.”

I’m only kidding. Cato the Elder never said that. That was a Jeffrey Epstein meme I just made up.

Happy Monday!  Jim is in a good mood after a Jets win on Sunday and he’s fired up for all three martinis.  First, Jim and Greg applaud FedEx CEO Fred Smith for fighting back against smears from the New York Times that accused his company of evading taxes thanks to the recent tax reforms.  They also shred Prince Andrew for his absurd defenses against accusations he was connected to Jeffrey Epstein’s pedophile ring, including Andrew’s explanation that he stayed at Epstein’s house against his better judgment because he is “too honorable.”  And they break down the sloppy, clueless effort of the Pete Buttigieg campaign to connect with black voters in the 2020 campaign.

Thanks for joining the Three Martini Lunch today.  Once again, Rob Long of National Review and Ricochet is sitting in for Jim.  Today, we celebrate the resignation of socialist Bolivian dictator Evo Morales and notice how very sad the mainstream media and far left politicians are that Morales is no longer in power.  They also note the retirement of New York GOP Rep. Peter King, and while they don’t really care if King retires. they see it as further evidence that things look bleak for Republicans in the suburbs in 2020.  And they chronicle ABC and CBS acting like the Keystone Cops in apparently firing the wrong person for leaking the Amy Robach rant against ABC for spiking the Jeffrey Epstein story for three years.  Rob is also shaking his head at the producer tearfully insisting she would never make public something as compelling as Robach’s comments.

All good martinis yesterday, and none today.  But we have three doozies for you.  First, Jim and Greg discuss the new Project Veritas expose, clearly showing reporter/anchor Amy Robach blasting her bosses off air for refusing to air her story exposing Jeffrey Epstein and his powerful connections for the past three years.  They blast ABC for engaging in the same kind of cover-up NBC did for Harvey Weinstein.  They also shudder at reports that as many as ten Americans were killed by drug cartels in Mexico, the latest evidence that cartels clearly control key parts of Mexico and may even be more powerful than the Mexican military.  And they laugh at the painfully predictable reaction from liberals on Twitter and far-left columnists like USA Today’s Christine Brennan after some of the Washington Nationals said nice things about President Trump and one even wore a MAGA hat.

Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America kick off the week with three crazy martinis. They begin with the death of Jeffrey Epstein, the protocols that officials admit weren’t followed, and the blizzard of conspiracy theories that immediately erupted. They also roll their eyes as media and political figures on the left declare that voting for President Trump makes those voters racists by association. And Alexandra gets a kick out of Joe Biden stating there are “at least three” genders while pointing out Biden can never win the “Woke Olympics” and shouldn’t be trying to.

It Could Be Suicide or Murder. But Incompetence Is a Certainty.

 

A question that @paddysiochain has asked needs to be answered: Is it even possible that Jeffrey Epstein was an actual suicide? Sure it is. Anyone remember the Baader-Meinhof gang? German terrorists of the Seventies, a cross between Antifa and the Manson family. Their leaders were caught and mysteriously committed suicide in jail. Almost everyone who’s seen the subsequent evidence says that it’s airtight: they really did commit suicide. But they were so high profile, and suicide seemingly so improbable, that on that day and for decades after, the hard Left and the hard Right don’t believe it.

Epstein’s world collapsed faster and more comprehensively than Harvey Weinstein’s. After his arrest, he was incredulous that he wasn’t offered a bail deal. He’d never see freedom again, let alone Lolita Island. Yes, I could see him as a suicide. Maybe. But…

Jeffrey Epstein Dead of (air-quote) Suicide (end air-quote)

 

Jeffrey Epstein, the alleged sex trafficker with a who’s-who list of rich, powerful friends, died Saturday. He was found in his cell at about 6:30 a.m. and authorities claim it was “suicide.” Whether they made air quotes when saying that word is unknown.

Bill Clinton, former Sen. George Mitchell, former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, attorney Alan Dershowitz, Britain’s Prince Andrew, and many more figures from international business and politics have been connected with the reclusive financier. Thousands of pages of Epstein documents were unsealed Friday.

“Mr. Epstein’s death raises serious questions that must be answered,” Attorney General William Barr said. “In addition to the FBI’s investigation, I have consulted with the Inspector General who is opening an investigation into the circumstances of Mr. Epstein’s death.”

When you have a chance, folks, pls take the time to watch this video on Jeffrey Epstein. This is far more than a video about a disgusting pedophile – it shows the many different scientific advancements regarding brain implant technologies that he has used his monies to promote. Preview Open

Alas Acosta

 

Is Alex Acosta a tragic figure? By Paul Mirengoff’s account at Power Line Blog, rehearsed and elaborated over the past two years, Alex Acosta is a man on the make, a social-political climber. His aspiration: the comfortable security and status of a federal judgeship. To gain that prize, Mirengoff claims, Acosta spent his time in both the George W. Bush and Trump administrations carefully not offending powerful Democratic Party interests. That is, Acosta passive aggressively sabotaged his presidents’ stated policies. Maybe so, maybe no.

Alex Acosta was invited to walk out with President Trump Friday morning, addressing the press alongside the president. This was a resignation, but one in which President Trump and his Secretary of Labor would concede nothing. What he and President Trump got was a sound byte summary of unheralded achievements that matter to real Americans.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America praise Hong Kong for ditching the Chinese extradition bill thanks to millions demanding the preservation of their freedom. They discuss Bill Clinton claiming ignorance of Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking and pedophilia. They scrutinize Kris Kobach’s chances to win the Senate seat in Kansas as well as the potential impact upon the Republican majority. And Jim and Greg close the show by raising a toast to the legacy of the late Ross Perot.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome a unanimous Supreme Court decision forbidding states from seizing assets in excess of the penalties a convicted person faces.  They also unload on Labor Secretary Alex Acosta as a judge rips the former U.S. Attorney for striking a 2007 plea bargain with Jeffrey Epstein and not sharing those deliberations with the accusers at the request of Epstein’s lawyers.  They react to North Carolina officials ordering a do-over in a North Carolina congressional race after a shady absentee ballot strategy by the Republican campaign.  And they react to the Robert Kraft news, which broke as they were recording.

Police were last night accused of burying allegations that a gang of Syrians sexually assaulted two teenage girls in a Newcastle park. Three young men and a teenage boy, at least one of them a refugee, were arrested last month over claims two 14-year-olds had been attacked in the centre of the city. Preview Open
