MY DYING LAST DAYS, GETTING F****D BY SUDDENLINK!! (Charging Me A Service $60 Fee On The 3rd Time Out, To No Avail Why I Wasn't Getting HS Net, For Him To Tell Me, "IT MAY VERY WELL BE A GHOST OR SOMETHING, BECAUSE A HOME NEARBY WAS A PASTORS WHO HELD FUNERALS THERE IN THE EARLY 1900s)

2020.09.28 12:01 Business-Complaint-9 MY DYING LAST DAYS, GETTING F****D BY SUDDENLINK!! (Charging Me A Service $60 Fee On The 3rd Time Out, To No Avail Why I Wasn't Getting HS Net, For Him To Tell Me, "IT MAY VERY WELL BE A GHOST OR SOMETHING, BECAUSE A HOME NEARBY WAS A PASTORS WHO HELD FUNERALS THERE IN THE EARLY 1900s)

I was warned about Suddenlink when I moved to WV after losing home in Florida from hurricane. BUT, there really is no other with proper service for HS Internet. First, ordered just low internet. Within hours would get 10-20 texts/emails offering to upgrade. Took deal, $99 for Phone, 2nd Tier Cable 200 Channels and 400 MBPS HS Internet, PLUS $200 Amazon Gift Card offer. Was to be installed between 1 and 4pm. Called at 5pm, told on their way, 6:00 "En Route" 7:30, She hung up on me, 9pm, "Checked w/driver, he is Enroute". Installer didn't get here until a little after 10pm. He said, they told him I was an irate customer that demanded the installation TODAY!... LIED. He installed 2 Altice ONE boxes, both didn't work, he called his Sup. They were here until after 1am. Sup gave him the next day off, I tipped them $30. I then soon realized NONE of my devices were getting more than 35 MBPS Internet. 3 phones, Desk PC, 2 Laptops and I even had people I knew, that had never been here, to enter and log onto WiFi in case we all got a virus. NOPE, No more than 35MBPS. Called and tech came out, once...had no idea, twice, had no idea, three times w/the third so confused he said it MAY BE A GHOST because the house in front was once home to Pastor who held funerals in early 1900s. A GHOST! I then received a $60 fee on my bill for them to come out, yet nothing was fixed. Then on one of the countless calls, the CS Agent said it was because our area couldn't get those speeds! Yet, I was paying for it for NOW 5 months. He said he would have the Tech fee reversed. After calling about the Amazon card once, they told me I had to wait 90 days, second call they said I had to wait six months, third call, they gave me a number to call, number was invalid. Called now in my later part of sixth month, person gave me another number and since the tech fee did not show on my bill, he said he escalated it to priority and said it would be off. NOW, well into my 7th month, after paying all this time for 400MBPS at $99 plus taxes and fees, with the total at first being $120, then slowly each month went up to $146, I called again for the Amazon and the credit and after speaking with 5 people, I was told by one, I wouldn't get a credit for the service call because I didn't sign up for and pay for "Safeline" (Never heard of it, was never offered it, would never have taken it!..if your service doesn't work, WHY would I pay for you to fix something that never worked that you sold me). I was sent to Supervisor who said they didn't even know what Safelline was! Then HE said that I could have gotten the credit but it was now past the second billing cycle since the tech came out and they cant credit past two months! Then asked about Amazon card, got the 5th guy, after all of the others told me that I had to wait 90 days, then it was 120 days, then two different times to call 2 diff numbers, none worked, now THIS person told me this.... and this is really good!.. You ready?...."In order to receive the card, you must pay your first three bills 10 DAYS BEFORE THE DUE DATE"...He didn't say, you I had to pay it within 10 days of the due date, meaning PAST the due date and he he was also telling me, simply PAYING THE BILL ON TIME, meaning 1 day early, 3 days early, 7 days early, which in today's economy and crisis, just paying your bill on time, as long as it's not past the due date should be considered an EXCELLENT payment history, right? NOPE, I had to pay the bill no later than ten days BEFORE the due date!!!! I went back to everything I had, I typed in the phrase in various ways online and nothing came up. I looked at every bill and my contract and receipt I was given both times!...NOTHING. By the way, YES, I am dying. I have Lupus and recently was diagnosed with Stage 4 Melanoma skin cancer and had 1/4 of my torso skin taken off. Because of my Lupus, I am not able to be put under general anesthesia for staples, so they had to sew me with what they call Couch Staples. The cancer as made its way to my spine where I have three tumors and they cant do anything about them. NOW, I am not one to play the sick card, but after calling Suddenlink 18 times, that I kept track of, towards the end (More recent) I would get so frustrated at a different story told, excuse after excuse and LIES, I started letting them in on my other problems. Not that we all dont have some and don't expect special treatment, but I do expect what I paid for, not to be lied to time and time again and be f****d month after month, without even any lube!. At least others have been kind enough to offer THAT!. Yes, I joke, because I have to, but after the final call this week I lost it. When I was told I wasn't getting the card, I let loose, swore, yet never directed it at the person, and I USUALLY do not hold the reps accountable for corporate policies. HOWEVER, there is a point where you see that this company is SOOOO corrupt and that they dish out so many lies and scams, that it must really take a certain kind of person to work at a place like that and can do that to customers. I know some have kids and all that, but EVERY single person I have spoken with has lied, aimlessly uttered something like they cared and apologized, which are simply words on a cue card someone told them to say. I myself could never work at this place, EVER. I could not lie so blatantly to people. Especially when someone is so exhausted after bouncing around for 3 hours and 21 minutes as I had been this past Friday. I told the last guy, who amazingly spoke pretty good English...BECAUSE HE SPOKE IN THE QUEEN'S ENGLISH, as in British. Where HE came from I will never know. I told him Suddenlink and CEO Dexter Goei can "Go Eff themselves" and said I was cancelling as soon as I called AT&T, the only other company with decent internet service. The only other is Frontier, who wouldn't exist if it wasn't for mass exodus of pissed off Suddenlink customers and I heard their service is so bad most end up going back to Suddenlink. Ill just have to suck it up if that's the case. I have had my attorney in Los Angeles, who I admit is my Entertainment Atty and also who is handling my will since I am in the situation I am in with my health, but attorneys go to school and learn all law and then they enter into a certain field, so its not like he is totally not capable of SOMETHING, so he is filing complaints with the FCC and State Comptroller of both WV, NY and IL where their corporate filings and/or assets are kept, which includes Altice and Cablevision. He is also filing some other federal complaints other than the FCC because much of the money comes from and goes back to the company that purchased Suddenlink in 2015, or around then, that are based in France. Ironically, down on one of the street corners near the WV State Capitol Complex in Charleston, which is where I live, there has been a group of people, usually one dressed in a banana costume (Who knows, I guess to get you to look) holding signs about Suddenlink and Class Action Lawsuits filings. In my 53 years, with years that I worked FOR someone in a career position and not just "A Job", I have worked for either telecommunication companies (AT&T, Bell Atlantic and Southern Bell/BellSouth) and also the newly formed at the time because of the breakup of 'Ma'Bell' and being unregulated, with the then ability to diversify from telecommunications, the new AT&T Banking Division out of Jacksonville, Florida launching their new AT&T branded "Universal Card Visa/MC", for which I/We won the Malcolm Baldrige Award, a National award that was given for excellence in customer service. One of the requirements were that you had to have been in business for at least five years. In an unprecedented first, we won the top prize in our SECOND year. We had such high numbers they broke their own rules. AT&T Universal's CEO had the gold award melted down and made into smaller awards for each employee. I say this to show that I KNOW what kind of customer service a company not only should posses to keep customers, but that I also know when it goes beyond that, breaking laws, which they seem to have done quite clearly in my opinion and if the many class action lawsuits have any say. I also ventured into the Banking/Credit Card/Credit Reporting areas as well, including a couple years working late stage collection which even included "Skip Tracing". If anyone knows anything about that, they know that most late stage collectors, 3rd party collections and Skip Tracers, who are more PIs then Customer Service Reps and there are MANY horror stories of what Skip Tracers have done to find a person owing a debt, including calling neighbors, telling them there was a family emergency so they would walk next door to get the debtor to come to their house, only to fund the collector on the phone. Though I worked for a better bank than that, the horror stories I have heard, including repossession companies do not even come CLOSE to the lies and scams Suddenlink as pulled on FOR SURE myself, with proof, and seemingly others besides me in masses. Something needs to be done and until Im dead, I will do a little each day to chip away and warn others. I must get my roommate up for work and make breakfast and their lunch, so I don't have time to edit this for grammar or spelling, as I'm already behind, so my apology for that. Thanks

2020.07.06 14:59 rusticgorilla [Lost in the Sauce] Trump prioritizes statues of racist generals over human lives

Welcome to Lost in the Sauce, keeping you caught up on political and legal news that often gets buried in distractions and theater… or a global health crisis.
I might do a coronavirus-centric post tomorrow or Wednesday, couldn’t fit it here. Will have to do it this weekend or next week, sorry. Working on an article for FN.
Housekeeping:

Statues over people

Over the past week, we’ve seen the crystallization of Trump’s apparent re-election strategy: protect statues at all costs. During his two public speeches (clip 1 (clip 2), Trump focused on confederate monuments and “cancel culture” while the nation grapples with a record-breaking number of coronavirus cases and a struggling economy.
Trump promised to veto this year’s annual defense bill if an amendment is included that would require the Pentagon to change the names of bases named for Confederate military leaders… Sen. Elizabeth Warren sponsored the amendment that would change the names of 10 bases named after Confederate generals as well as remove Confederate likenesses, symbols, and paraphernalia from defense facilities nationwide within three years.
  • The amendment is unlikely to be removed, however, as it passed the Republican-led Senate Armed Services Committee with bipartisan support. This means that it would require 60 votes on the Senate floor to get rid of it.
  • Warren: “The decision to remove the names of Confederate generals who took up arms against the United States in defense of slavery was a bipartisan decision that came out of the committee, and it’s going to stay in the defense budget. The president can do what he wants, but it stays.”
Trump signed an executive order on June 26 directing the Department of Justice to “prosecute to the fullest extent permitted under Federal law” people who damage federal monuments. He took to Twitter to announce the order: “Long prison terms for these lawless acts against our Great Country!” Damaging federal property can be punished by up to 10 years in prison.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) plans to introduce legislation withholding federal funding for states and cities that don't adequately protect statues and monuments. Trump’s executive order included a provision to do the same, but the White House is not in a position to enforce such a clause.
The Department of Homeland Security announced a new task force to protect "American monuments, memorials and statues." DHS said it was launching rapid deployment teams to federal monuments over the July 4th weekend. "DHS should not be prioritizing the protection of property over the wellbeing of Black and Brown communities,” the ACLU responded.
  • Just want to point out: The federal government apparently has the resources to spare to guard monuments but not to conduct thorough contact tracing and isolation.
During Trump’s Mount Rushmore speech, he announced an executive order establishing a "national garden” for statues of “American heroes” (video). The choice in statues proves that the idea is meant as a divisive wedge issue. Indeed, there is already a “Hall of Fame for Great Americans” in existence in the Bronx.

Appointee controversies

Trump’s nominee to be ambassador to Norway was involved in the creation of a racist campaign flyer in the 1990s and failed to disclose subsequent legal action associated with it. Mark Burkhalter helped create a flier that distorted the features of a black politician in Georgia, darkened his features, gave him a large afro, and prompted a libel suit.
  • Senate Foreign Relations Committee Ranking Member Robert Menendez is urging the White House to withdraw Burkhalter’s nomination: "During this time of national trauma and reckoning over violence and racist actions against African-Americans, however, it is unthinkable to nominate for a position of public trust an individual who participated in such a despicable, racist scheme," Menendez wrote in a letter.
Trump appointee Michael Pack fired the top officials of the USAGM’s internet freedom group. In less than a decade, the Open Technology Fund has quietly become integral to the world’s repressed communities. Over two billion people in 60 countries rely on tools developed and supported by the fund, like Signal and Tor, to connect to the internet securely and send encrypted messages in authoritarian societies.
The White House directed Defense Department officials to hire former National Security Council staffer Rich Higgins, who was fired for circulating a conspiratorial memo and known for Islamophobic tweets… The move is part of an aggressive push to staff the Pentagon with figures loyal to Trump and with connections to Michael Flynn.
White House is conducting “loyalty test” interviews with political appointees at the Pentagon. The interviews will be conducted by two subordinates of John McEntee, Trump’s former body man who now runs the personnel office: John Troup Hemenway, an undergraduate student, and Jordan Hayley, who graduated from university last month.
House Democrats call for firing of USAID political appointee with history of Islamophobic statements… Religious freedom adviser Mark Kevin Lloyd shared a Facebook post calling Islam “a barbaric cult” and accused Obama of being connected with the Muslim Brotherhood. Reps. Joaquin Castro and Ilhan Omar: “He does not represent the values of our country, and he should not be in a position to betray our nation’s constitutional promise of religious freedom.”
A second USAID Trump appointee is under fire for hate-filled rhetoric, including anti-immigrant and anti-LGBTQ comments. Merritt Corrigan, the recently appointed deputy White House liaison at USAID, said “women shouldn’t be in office” and urged followers to “speak out now about the transsexual agenda before it becomes normalized."

Court cases

Coming up this morning: More Supreme Court opinions to be released at 10 am (ET). There are eight cases that have yet to be ruled on, including those involving Trump’s finances.
The Supreme Court agreed Thursday to hear arguments this fall about Mueller’s grand jury evidence, postponing the House Judiciary Committee’s potential access to the material until after the election. SCOTUS could have declined the hear the case, preserving the lower court ruling granting the committee access.
Last week, SCOTUS struck down a Louisiana law that required abortion providers to have admitting privileges at local hospitals. The ruling should be seen only as a momentary win, as Chief Justice Roberts didn’t rule on the merits of a constitutionally protected right to abortion—rather he deferred to the power of the court itself, leaving the door open for future challenges.
  • The Supreme Court also gave Indiana a second chance to revive two restrictive abortion laws - one imposing an ultrasound requirement and the other expanding parental notification when minors seek abortions - by throwing out a lower court's rulings to block them.
  • Related: Missouri Supreme Court denies attempt to defund Planned Parenthood
  • More on Roberts: “[H]e is moving the ball steadily down the constitutional field, toward the conservative end zone. Of the dozen 5-to-4 cases decided by the Supreme Court this term, Roberts is the only justice to have been in the majority each time. He sided with the liberals just twice.”
The Supreme Court ruled that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is constitutionally valid but the director can be removed by the president at will. The outcome is a mixed bag, but Elizabeth Warren - creator of the agency - highlighted the fact that the conservative court ruled “the CFPB is here to stay.” Furthermore, if Biden wins in November, the decision allows him to fire Trump’s director before her term would have ended.
The Supreme Court declined to take up the case of federal death row prisoners who had challenged the government’s lethal injection protocol, paving the way for the Trump administration to carry out the first executions at the federal level in nearly two decades.
The Supreme Court ruled that states must allow religious schools to participate in programs that provide scholarships to students attending private schools, a decision that opened the door to more public funding of religious education.
The upshot: Taxpayers in most of the country will soon start funding overtly religious education—including the indoctrination of children into a faith that might clash with their own conscience. For example, multiple schools that participate in Montana’s scholarship program inculcate students with a virulent anti-LGBTQ ideology that compares homosexuality to bestiality and incest…
A New York appellate court lifted the temporary restraining order against Simon & Schuster, allowing the publisher to continue printing and distributing Mary Trump’s book. The next hearing regarding the restraining order against Mary herself is scheduled for this Friday.
UPDATE: "Due to high demand and extraordinary interest in this book, Too Much and Never Enough by Mary L. Trump will now be published on July 14, 2020," Simon & Schuster says. The previous publishing date was July 28.
In court filings, Mary Trump argues that the confidentiality agreement she signed 19 years ago was an unenforceable fraud. Her lawyers state that when she signed the NDA, she believed the asset amounts in it were accurate but learned they were bogus from a New York Times expose. Essentially, Mary says the president and his siblings of engaging in systematic fraud by devaluing assets.
“The Times found that the Trump family had engineered ‘friendly’ appraisals for Beach Haven and Shore Haven Apartments—two of the largest ‘crown jewels’ of Fred Trump’s empire—that were significantly and deliberately undervalued to avoid a variety of tax payments,” the memo stated. “Those undervalued appraisals, part of the Trump tax avoidance scheme, were relied upon in the Settlement Agreement—which Ms. Trump has testified she would not have signed if she had known about the fraudulent appraisals.”

Trump campaign and properties

Health secretary Alex Azar focuses trips on swing states needed by Trump… Azar’s travel priorities appear to be related to politics, not the states fighting the worst outbreaks, according to Obama-era officials.
Last year, the Republican National Convention began cutting checks to a former producer of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice who was accused of having, as one contestant put it, “all the dirt” on Donald Trump. The RNC’s disbursements to Labella’s firm appear to be the first payments ever made by a federal political committee to either Labella personally or his company. But a RNC spokesperson described his role for the convention as that of a standard event producer.
Trump is planning on holding a $580,600-per-couple campaign fundraiser in Broward County this week. Last month, Trump resumed in-person fundraising with two events, including a June 11 gathering in Dallas that cost $580,600 per couple. The campaign said it raised more than $10 million through that event.
A t-shirt for sale on Trump’s official campaign website displays an “america First” logo with a striking similarity to the Nazis' Iron Eagle symbol (comparison). A little over two weeks ago, Facebook removed numerous Trump campaign posts and ads featuring an upside down red triangle symbol once used by Nazis to identify political opponents.
  • Let’s not forget that a little over a week ago, Trump retweeted a video that included a Trump supporter shouting “white power.” The president commented that his supporters in the video are “great people.” Staffers tried for three hours to reach Trump to get permission to delete the tweet, but Trump was on the golf course.
Speaking of Trump and golfing, this weekend Trump spent his 365th day as president on one of his own properties. In fact, on the day the U.S. set a daily global record for the coronavirus pandemic - surpassing 55,000 new cases - Trump was golfing.
Further reading: “Pence donors, allies helped finance vice president's legal defense fund for Mueller probe” and “The owner ‘The Hill’ helped secure an unpaid White House position for his wife — a fact the publication did not disclose to readers.”

Voting rights

The Supreme Court blocked a trial judge’s order that would have made it easier for voters in three Alabama counties to use absentee ballots in this month’s primary runoff election. State officials had asked the court to block a lower court’s order that eased photo ID and witness requirements for absentee voting during the pandemic.
The Supreme Court declined to fast-track a bid by Texas Democrats to decide whether all Texas voters can vote by mail during the coronavirus pandemic… Texas law allows voters to mail in their ballots only if they are 65 or older, confined in jail, will be out of the county during the election period, or cite a disability or illness.
A federal appeals court halted the voting registration of thousands of Florida felons who cannot pay fines or fees, just weeks after a lower court threw out the state law mandating payment of all legal financial obligations before voting. The 11th Circuit decision granted Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ request to suspend voter registration until the full court hears the case.
  • Reminder: Late last year, the Senate confirmed Judge Barbara Lagoa to the 11th Circuit, flipping the court to majority GOP appointees.
A federal appeals court in Wisconsin has reaffirmed voting restrictions favored by Republicans, limiting early voting to 2 weeks before an election and barring voters from receiving ballots via email or fax.
In some good news, the Atlanta Hawks is going to turn its arena into the largest polling site in state history. Hundreds of Hawks employees and arena staff will be trained as election workers at the 700,000-square-foot venue, which hosts more than 16,000 spectators for basketball games and 21,000 for concerts. The team says parking will be free for voters and more than 1,500 spaces will be made available.

Immigration

ICE unlawfully jails unaccompanied migrant children once they turn 18, judge rules… Many of ICE’s largest field offices “nearly automatically” send minors to adult jails, even when in extreme cases their parents in the United States or other sponsors would take them, the judge wrote.
The week before last, a federal judge ordered the release of children held with their parents in U.S. immigration jails and denounced the Trump administration’s prolonged detention of families during the coronavirus pandemic.
  • Prior to the ruling, it was reported that eleven immigrants held inside a detention facility for families in Texas have tested positive for COVID-19
  • Further reading: ICE Asked Parents to Choose Between Family Separation and Prolonged Detention—During a Pandemic
A government watchdog agency responsible for overseeing the conditions that federal agencies hold immigrants in said it will not be visiting facilities because of the coronavirus, which observers worry will diminish independent inspections.
'Suddenly they started gassing us': Cuban migrants tell of shocking attack at Ice prison… Refugees say protest against risk of Covid-19 was violently suppressed at New Mexico facility run by private firm CoreCivic.
A federal judge overturned a Trump border rule requiring immigrants to first claim asylum in another country… Trump-appointee Judge Timothy J. Kelly of Washington, D.C. ruled that the administration’s rule violated the Immigration and Nationality Act.
The Trump administration is preparing broad new immigration restrictions that would deny humanitarian refuge to anyone from a country with a disease outbreak, deeming those asylum seekers to be a danger to public safety.
  • Meanwhile, travelers from the U.S. are banned from entering countries in Europe, must quarantine when visiting England, and will have to pass through health checkpoints to visit Sonora (the Mexican state that borders Arizona).
The US agency that oversees and administers key facets of the immigration system, including the processing of citizenship, green cards, and asylum applications is about to come to a near halt. If Congress does not provide US Citizenship and Immigration Services with emergency funding before Aug. 3, the employees, who make up more than 60% of all staffers, will be furloughed.
Border wall built by Trump’s hand-picked contractor is in danger of falling into the Rio Grande… Trump supporters funded the private border wall on the banks of the Rio Grande, helping the builder secure $1.7 billion in federal contracts. Last December, Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., called for the Pentagon’s inspector general to review Fisher’s first $400 million fence contract, awarded in December over concerns of “inappropriate influence.” The audit is ongoing.
Fun fact: All but 3 of the 216 miles of border wall constructed by the Trump administration are essentially much larger replacements of existing, dilapidated fences or vehicle barriers

Environment

  • Pro-pipeline letters by key legislators, including North Dakota’s governor, were actually ghostwritten by a fossil fuel company
  • The Fed Is Bailing Out Polluters While Cities Struggle: Fossil fuel interests have readier access to stimulus money than many local governments.
  • Trump's trade war hurt Maine's lobster industry. He falsely blames Obama: The president has moved to bail out the state's all-important seafood industry. But his policies caused the problem.
    • White House directs Agriculture Department to extend farmer bailout money to lobster industry
  • Trump’s EPA balks at a chance to save black lives: Soot sickens and kills people of color disproportionately. The EPA has decided to not tighten standards that would protect them and others.
  • A Democratic U.S. senator says he has written to Attorney General William Barr outlining his concerns about potential “political interference” by the Trump administration in an investigation of a private espionage firm that targeted environmental groups in the United States.
  • The Trump administration proposed to open more than two-thirds of the nation’s largest piece of public land to oil and gas drilling, removing wildlife protections for the Alaskan tract that have been in place for more than four decades.
  • Trump Has Dismantled More Monuments Than Any Protest: Trump has done the most damage to national monuments, dismantling or desecrating four federally protected land and water sites with significant cultural, archeological and natural resources.

Other

These stories didn’t fit in a previous category, but I think it’s important to include…
A new Trump administration proposal would let government-funded, single-sex homeless shelters keep transgender people out for religious reasons, and advocates worry that could subject them to more violence than they already face.
In the past, Secretary Carson has called transgender women “big, hairy men” intruding on women’s shelters and referred to “Biblical principles” to justify misgendering transgender women.
President Trump has taken aim at an Obama-era program intended to eliminate racial housing disparities in the suburbs, a move proponents of the policy see as an attempt to shore up his sagging support among white suburban voters by stoking racial division.
The Trump administration is in discussions to end a decades-old practice of informally notifying Congress of major arms sales to foreign countries… Administration officials say they are tired of regular efforts by Capitol Hill to review arms exports to Saudi Arabia and other nations.
The White House asked a Republican senator to block a bill that punishes China over its encroachments in Hong Kong. That senator, Kevin Cramer, obliged, blocking unanimous passage of the bill last week — even though he’s a co-sponsor of it.

2020.03.28 22:02 153799 Have you found price gouging?

greed
United States Government Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic
Information from The Federal Trade Commission About Stimulus Checks - Don't get scammed
For the most up-to-date information on the outbreak, visit the CDC's COVID-19 website: Center for Disease Control
I am sick of seeing people taking advantage of others, not only during this COVID-19 pandemic but also during hurricanes, floods, tornadoes - any disaster where people are vulnerable.
However, I am one person and can only submit one report for every $489 N95 face mask, $50 pack of toilet paper and $75 bottle of antibacterial gel. I need your help!
If you see evidence of price gouging on eBay, Amazon, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Craigslist, OfferUp, LetGo, Nextdoor, or in your local area - report it! Then post it below so others can report it too!

Make sure to include:

  • a screen shot of the ad, auction, etc. that shows the item, a description of what they are offering, the price AND the username, business name - whatever is needed for eBay, Craigslist, etc to find them. This is not doxxing, this is reporting what is at the least immoral and in many states, criminal behavior.
  • a link to the item or items
  • However, DO NOT DOXX PEOPLE! Only show the information they've posted publicly or photos of them in public locations. If you know the person and know their personal information, report that to your local police by calling their non-emergency number and giving the police their name, address & any other information you have.

SCAM ALERTS

World Health Organization Report a Scam
SHOPPING THIEVES TARGETING SENIORS & DISABLED/VULNERABLE:* There are reports of thieves offering to go shopping for self-isolating seniors, only to take their money and never return with goods. Do not trust random strangers to shop for you. Many grocery stores have announced special early morning hours just for seniors. Non-profits have also offered to help seniors with shopping needs. **PLEASE BE CAREFUL OF ANYONE OFFERING TO RUN ERRANDS FOR YOU
DOOR-TO-DOOR SERVICES: The Attorney General's Office in many states has received reports of individuals going door-to-door claiming they can sanitize homes and help keep seniors & vulnerable from COVID-19. There have also been reports of individuals claiming to work for the 2020 Census asking for financial information or money. The Census Bureau has suspended field operations until April because of COVID-19. Never allow anyone access to your house that you don't know or didn't request assistance from.You can still participate in the Census online U. S. Census Online .
MIRACLE PRODUCTS AND COVID-19 VACCINES: Con artists are calling and emailing consumers claiming to be from medical organizations that have a COVID-19 vaccination and require payments to buy a dose. The Internet has been flooded with ads for sham treatments such as hand soaps, supplements, toothpastes, and essential oils. A recently cancelled event scheduled for Phoenix promised supernatural protections against COVID-19. There currently is NO vaccination for COVID-19 and there is NO proven product to cure the virus.
In a variation of the miracle cure scam, fraudsters try to lure individuals to invest in companies that can supposedly prevent, detect, or cure COVID-19. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued an alert about investor fraud involving COVID-19 cures.
GOVERNMENT IMPOSTOR MONEY SCAMS: Scammers frequently contact seniors claiming to be from the government or private institutions seeking to obtain personal or financial information for a legitimate purpose. With discussions of possible financial assistance coming as a result of COVID-19, it is important to remember the government will not text you or ask you to pay anything up-front to receive benefits. The government will never call or text and ask for your Social Security number, bank account information, or credit card number.
There are reports of people receiving text messages about being "Prequalified" to receive money as a result of the "Virus Outbreak." Financial assistance in the form of government checks are not yet a reality and anyone who tells you they can get you COVID-19 money now is a scammer. Legitimate government offices will not call and threaten to arrest you or penalize you for not providing personal information.
PHONE SCAMS / ROBOCALLS / TEXT MESSAGES / PHISHING EMAILS: Both offices are receiving reports of a spike in illegal robocalls, text messages, and emails being used by scammers to pitch everything from COVID-19 treatments to testing. Consumers should screen their calls and let answering machines and voicemail pick up calls from unknown callers. Place your phone number on the National Do Not Call Registry.
Fraudsters are also sending phishing emails claiming to be from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or the World Health Organization (WHO). Do not click on any unsolicited links. Do not reveal personal or financial information in email, and do not respond to email solicitations for this information. If you have questions about COVID-19, seek out information from the CDC and the WHO directly.
FAKE AT-HOME COVID-19 TESTING
Testing for COVID-19 is only conducted in licensed laboratories, hospitals, and medical facilities across the country. No FDA-approved at-home COVID-19 tests are available in the U.S.
Anyone who believes they have been exposed to COVID-19 should avoid purchasing at-home test kits marketed online, and should instead contact their doctor and follow their instructions.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General is also alerting the public about scammers offering COVID-19 tests to Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries in exchange for personal details, including Medicare information. These services are unapproved and illegitimate.
Beneficiaries should be cautious of unsolicited requests for their Medicare or Medicaid numbers. The public should also be suspicious of any unexpected calls or visitors offering COVID-19 tests or supplies.
Scammers are always looking for new ways to target the vulnerable, and this public health emergency is no different. Fraudulent medical tests and products can pose serious health risks by preventing some patients from seeking care or delaying proper medical treatment. Those who believe they have been exposed to COVID-19 or are developing symptoms, should consult with their doctor immediately and follow their medical advice, not defer to the claims of a fake at-home test.

2019.09.23 09:41 westrideforward 10 Things Beginning Actors Maybe Don't Think About

Ever fantasized about becoming an actor or celebrity?
It’s attainable, but the many challenges of reality are not usually known until pursuing such a dream. Time spent practicing or rehearsing for a production is not glamorous, the market is highly competitive, relationships can become tense, day job’s are what you make them, sacrificing a date for a new head-shot, importance of car maintenance, the false portrayal of the celebrity image, being the business, and being responsible. Ready to leave your office cubicle?
  1. Preparing To “Perform” Is 85% Of The Process
Preparing to perform on the stage or behind a camera will be a repetitive process unless the artist truly invokes his or her creativity. Rehearsing for projects with short turn around-time like a soap-opera is one of the few endeavors that do not require a lot of preparation but do require talent. From PlayBill (LINK 1): “A typical Broadway show rehearses six days a week for eight hours a day — from around 10 AM-6 PM. The actors work for seven of those hours, and the rest is breaks”. The unfortunate part the actor must accept is that their part in the production is never quite as time-friendly as they would of hoped for.
Repetition can become tiring for many actors, stealing their creative energies. A confident actor will find enthusiasm in improving their work output and never settle for complacency. A true artist is one whom consistently looks for ways to improve their craft so that their final product is optimized to be received at its best for any audience. While constantly tweaking your planned performance may be exhausting, it will leave no regrets once the show is complete if rehearsed with full effort from the entire ensemble.
If you aspire to perform in the dramatic arts, hard work-ethic is highly encouraged due to the demanding circumstances of preparation and performance.
  1. The Market Is Saturated But Feasible
Throughout recent history the entertainment industry has established well-known location strongholds in both Los Angeles, California and New York City, NY. Many aspiring and professional actors have continued to move to these locations to be “found out” or advance their resume. Although these locations still offer plenty of opportunity the competition is fierce and not necessarily an ideal location if just starting out. Due to rapid growths in various technologies, actors can now submit for auditions across the country with a single-click. The emergence of new markets has been steadily rising due to actors being able to find work without flying across the country. Emerging markets include: Albuquerque (New Mexico), Atlanta (Georgia), Austin (Texas), Boston (New England), Charlotte (North Carolina), Chicago (Illinois), Miami (Florida), New Orleans (Louisiana), Portland (Oregon), San Francisco (California), and Toronto (Canada) (LINK 2). If you are considering an acting career it may be a wise choice to consider moving or applying to jobs where competition is not as fierce as LA or NYC until your skill-set is sharpened.
As previously mentioned, technology allows human-beings to communicate within milliseconds across the globe for the first time in history. The days of sending a Game of Thrones raven with a message scribbled on paper are fortunately long gone. If you have a device with internet access there are now a large amount of resources available for connecting to possible acting opportunities both free-of-charge and paid memberships. Some great casting platforms to consider using are: Backstage (free or paid), ActorsAccess ($2/submission or $68/yr for unlimited submissions), Casting Frontier (free or various paid monthly and annual plans), Casting Networks (free with agency representation or a $25 annual fee), Mandy (completely free), and NYCastings ($11.95/month, LINK 3). By utilizing these websites an actor can find opportunity through their determination of continuously applying to applicable roles.
  1. Romantic Relationships Can Be Challenged
Jealously is a natural frustration due to our human condition. Actors whom become involved in a romantic or sexually influenced script may find discomfort when informing their significant other of potential situations. If an actor has a significant other in show-business than jealously may not be as big of an issue as someone with a significant other working in an unrelated field. Each relationship is different but contemplating how your real love interest would react to seeing you on screen with a stranger in bed is important to consider.
A significant part of the challenge for someone pursuing an acting career while also in a relationship is the lack of time the couple may be able to spend together. The actor has to sacrifice most if not all of their free time to the craft. Now, the hopeful actor would desire the lack of free time from result of the actor working on a project for longer periods than the average 8-hour work day. In this case, the relationship may benefit from income earned but suffer from the lack of personal time spent together. But in most cases, free time for the actor is compromised by their enrollment in courses throughout the week (usually when off their day job) which consume the entire evening. These courses also known as “workshops” can oblige the actor to a considerate amount of time committed from start to finish. Most structured conservatory programs revolve around a two-year commitment usually every-day of the week. On top of all of this is the actor’s actual career progression which involves commuting in stand-still traffic for 3 hours to get to their next audition(s) and then commuting back to their home.
  1. Your Day Job May “Suck” Or You Can Try One Of These Jobs
If your day job sucks already then no worries on this subject. For both young and older aspiring artists with no industry connections, the problem of time and money management are put to the test. Teenagers, 20-something’s, and all ages must face the battle between the balance of present income and future aspirations. This battle is one that will challenge most not growing up with financial freedom to explore their interests. It is important to remember that each day-job does not define who you are and what you want to be. A job that you hate now can become the stepping stone to a bright future you never would have been able to get to without your present occupation.
If you can approach the day with an optimistic perspective and commit to your current situation as a “means to an end” than the time spent studying, training, and creating work as an actor will be much more of the dream you want to live on a full-time basis. After researching the top occupations for aspiring and working actors, possible options for you include: Extra Work (the pay is decent, and you get the best experience you could ask for which is to watch the professionals you admire do their work on set), Production/Agent Assistant (this one is great because it allows you to make connections on set and gain true industry experience), Freelance jobs (take advantage of any opportunity that can allow you to make your own schedule such as being an Uber driver), WaiteBartender (this one is the one you hear about the most, for good reason due to the flexible schedule and possibility of earning), Personal Trainer (create your own schedule and get paid to help yourself and others maintain a healthy lifestyle), Dog Walker (if you are an animal lover and want the freedom to work around auditions this could be a great choice), Nanny/Babysitter (if you love kids and desire a flexible schedule), Promo work/Modeling (finding jobs on Craiglist or similar sites can lead to both experience and possible connections), Catering (if you desire a new experience each time and enjoy hospitality this can be a wonderful option), Tutoring (if you enjoy teaching others this can be the perfect opportunity to use those math classes you haven’t used since school), Video editor (if your friends are fellow actors then this is a perfect chance to help with editing their demo reels and improving your own skill-set), Substitute Teacher (this is great experience for anyone looking for a flexible schedule while also developing your skills for any audition room where you must command respect), and Temping (temp agencies provide a great opportunity for individuals whom are proficient with computers/typing which allow for flexible schedules and good pay) (LINK 4).
  1. Money For A Date May Need To Be Spent On A New Headshot or Gym Membership
Do you have a crush or possible love interest you want to impress? Well, there may come a time when you have to prioritize your goals and sacrifice funds spent on a hot date. Being an actor is a costly process that promises no return. Investment in progressing your own process is a reality that many actors learn to accept. While it would be a generous sentiment to consider asking your love interest on a date, it would also be money allocated that could be spent on the new headshot that could land your first big role or the gym membership that provides the physical appearance required.
It is critical for every actor to consider their budget and plan accordingly. Successful actors learn to sacrifice instant gratification for the future. This budgeting lifestyle may seem selfish to people around you, but in reality you are being responsible for the life you want to live. The New York Film Academy lists several suggestions for cutting back on costs and prioritizing expenses which include creating an essential and nonessential cost list. Essential expenses include housing, food, utilities, transportation, internet, and cell-phone. Nonessential expenses include just about everything else, including clothes, drinks, Starbucks, and leisure activities. It is also recommended to reduce expenses by opting for cheaper internet and cell phone plans (LINK 5).
Cutting back on expenses may be painful at first, but keep the goal in primary focus. Once you can maintain a healthy lifestyle through performing there will be plenty of opportunity to treat yourself and others. In fact, the experience of purchasing nonessential goods will be much more rewarding.
  1. Car Maintenance Is Essential If There Is No Public Transportation
The majority of your time as an actor will revolve around commuting to work or the next audition. If you do not live in a city with great public transportation options such as New York and in some areas of Los Angeles one should expect to depend on their transportation. The maintenance of your vehicle is extremely important if you do not want to lose an audition opportunity due to your car not being able to make it to the audition. Driving from location to location is necessary for all actors whom find themselves with several auditions within only a couple hours. Depending on the vehicle you own, wear and tear of sitting in gridlock traffic combined with adding mileage to your car becomes another responsibility for the actor to keep in healthy condition.
Although there are great public transportation systems in New York City and parts of Los Angeles many developing locations in the entertainment industry do not have the fortune of giving aspiring actors the convenience of bus and train transportation. Unless, you plan to move directly to NYC or LA it is best to plan on consistent travel daily. Car maintenance is vital whether you own a 2019 or 1990 model of your car. Planning for regular mileage maintenance by following the owners manual located in the vehicles glove-box will save both time and money, things that the actor cannot afford to lose to their competition. An article from “iDriveSafely” recommends to keep track of changing your oil and oil filter, checking tires monthly, inspecting all other fluids, wiper blades, battery health, air filter cleanliness, and examining belts/hoses in the engine bay (LINK 6).
  1. Some Actors May Be Such A Fantastic Actor You Have Doubt
The entertainment industry is fierce and will not stop to wait for your perfect performance. Throughout your experiences of working with different personalities of talent it can be easy to label yourself as not good enough. While your friend lands a role you both auditioned for and you are still stuck waiting tables, doubt and comparison can be a heavy burden. While giving into the temptation of doubt seems reasonable, it will only postpone time you could use to improve your skills. Instead of doubting and comparing yourself to others a much healthier alternative is to be happy for the others success as you would expect If you landed the job. An excerpt from an article on Backstage significantly encapsulates why comparison is the wrong measuring stick:
Although it can be hard not to compare yourself to others, remember that comparing yourself to someone else is an inaccurate measuring stick, and it can erode your self-esteem and send you into depression. When you compare yourself to others—whether in regards to a relationship, a career, or other achievement—you are only comparing yourself to your perception of others. Everyone has different life circumstances and different paths. You are on your own unique journey, and it may take longer or go in a different direction. However, it will never be the same as anyone else's, and it has just as many opportunities and possibilities. (LINK 7)
It is critical as an actor to remember your own growth and individual talent as a performer. Comparing yourself to another is a lifelong game that is not required to be played. Instead, take up a new course or make a new project free-of-charge for inspiration. The best work is the work that we create without expecting a reward from it. When facing doubt in your ability, you can remember this quote from Benjamin Franklin: “When in doubt, don’t”.
  1. The Actor Image In Modern Culture
As human beings we have an inert force within us called the ego. Unfortunately, Hollywood and the entertainment industry have developed a stigma around some of the top-performers as being “egocentric”. Egocentric and actor are practically synonymous in today’s culture. This largely in result from the United States media coverage placing importance on things that do not benefit the culture. You can see this played out when the news coverage is focused on the latest Disney star gone bad. News anchors spend nearly the same amount of time “reporting” on Miley Cyrus’ newest indecency as they spend informing American’s about the atrocities that are bein g violated against our fellowman across our nation and the world (LINK 8).
An egocentric actor is a bad actor. It is important for each actor to do daily introspection so they can self-reflect on the art they are providing rather than being the center of attention. Many actors whom are both new to the industry and experienced suffer from wanting to steal the show. When an actor wants to be the most clever person in the room they are not making art with any collaborative effort. It is a strength for actors to be able to control their value of self-importance so they can listen to their scene partner without the distraction of waiting for their next line.
Everyone deserves to shine if they have made it as far as working in Hollywood. If there is a fraud among the talent group, the truth will come out quickly. If you desire a lifelong career in the entertainment industry it is best to remain humble and know that each person working beside you has just as much reason to be there as you do. Do not make the mistake many people make both in the entertainment industry and in other workplaces.
  1. Acting Is A Sole-Proprietor Business In The Beginning
The entertainment industry is known as “show business” because in the sum of things it is an actual business more than anything else. The business is made up of the actor (the individual CEO) and the many other actors contributing their brand of style. The intelligent actors quickly learn that they themselves are the actual business and will market their strengths rather than weaknesses. It is important for the actor to remember that any successful business succeeds by offering something another business cannot. Actors are their own products. Cultivating productive business relationships requires putting yourself out there- through auditions and other means(LINK 9).
Developing your own business requires thoughtful planning and execution. An actor can structure their own artistic perspective on the basic principles of any business. These principles include becoming a great leader, developing a successful business plan, offer a great product or service, surround yourself with great people, create a great marketing plan, generate great numbers, staff your company with great managers (talent agents), perfect a great sales pitch, create great customer experience (find what is entertaining about you to bring viewers back), and live a great life (balance is key)(LINK 10).
You are responsible for your business while you are alive as an actor. Being available 24-7 is a healthy advantage for the working actor. By keeping up-to-date on emails, phone calls, and texts the actor will be able to effectively communicate and open doors before they are walked through by another business.
  1. Acting Is Will-Power
There is nothing more valuable in life than the dedication of ones’ will-power. Within most any venture in life we can choose to fully commit or scrape by meeting only the bare minimum. Labeling insufficient work ethic with excuse is not a healthy crutch for the actor. A large portion of success behind the scenes of an actor is their perseverance and motivation to run through failure or personal tragedy. Keanu Reeves, a well known Hollywood actor has experienced quite a turbulent life, but managed to become one of the most sought out actors today. His story summarized in an article by ReelScene recalls his past pains:
At a young age of three years old, his father left their family. They stayed in touch for a few years, but after the divorce, their father fell out of contact. Keanu struggled with dyslexia making his education more challenging than most. Because of that, he left school without earning a diploma. However, even when he left school, he was determined to overcome his condition. As a result of sheer determination, he overcame his condition and is now an avid reader. At age 23, his closest friend, River Phoenix died of drug overdose.In 1998, Keanu met Jennifer Syme and the two immediately fell in love. In 1999, Jennifer got pregnant but sadly, after eight months their child was stillborn. Because of that, they were devastated by her death and it eventually ended their relationship. 18 months later, Syme died in a car accident. (LINK 11)
A well-rounded actor whom is not preparing for a performance will constitute their free time being patient for their next role while also productive. Staying active is critical for the actor to maintain their fuel tank of desire. Maintaining healthy habits such as working out, reading, training, traveling, and trying to find new hobbies are great ways for the actor to keep their will-power strong during the layover periods in their career.

2019.09.02 02:56 poorstories It is going to take a lot of killing, but America is finally going to get gun control

Just Kill Us or How America Got Gun Control
No way in the world did I think it would be that easy to kill 500 people.
After the killings in Christchurch, NZ and then the quick reaction of the government to enact strict new gun control laws, it dawned on me. The sheer size of the killings in NZ forced them to act. That’s all that is needed in America then, to get sensible gun laws, a bigger number.
“Kill-tastic 2019” was the thought that came to me as soon as our conversation was over. So, I said to these guys, “Gentlemen, lets’ go over this one more time just so we all agree that we are understanding the same things. You control all the levers of power in Washington. You, Mr. Mc Senate, run the Senate for at least a couple more years and you Mr. Mc House run the GOP in the House. You both promise me that you will be able to get this done and your party will be behind it?” I couldn’t believe that they agreed, but I had to admire that they had only one central principle that guided their every act - Money and Power, because in modern day America, they are indistinguishable and interchangeable.
Most people are kind of squishy on a lot of things because life is situational. Like me, I am generally against killing people, except for today. Not these guys though, their moral hollowness allows their inner meanness to manifest itself and stay single-mindedly on the task of harming as many of their fellow citizens as possible. This always leaves a path of destruction, but that is for others to haggle over.
Several mass killings ago, when a reporter shouted to a politician “Now that we have had 60 dead how many must get killed at once before there is any action? 100? 200? how many?” His, under the breath mutter of “probably more” was picked up on the mike before he had to rush off to other pressing matters. His answer-non-answer made me think that perhaps there was a path forward to sensible gun legislation. I know that on a personnel level very few of those people in Washington care how many of us get killed, only who kills us. Had the piece of shit who killed those in Vegas been on a prayer rug and named Mohammed, we would have bombed two Mid-East countries by the end of the week. Crazy white guy, there is nothing we can do, other than say it is too soon to talk about regulations. Just like the phase “Thank you for your service” as a way to absolve ourselves of any actual involvement in war, we can say “Thoughts and prayers”. If a plane crashes, before the embers are out, the FAA is on site and looking to see if any regulations were violated or could be improved to prevent a similar crash. But if you die by gun – fuck off!
When that sad, pitiable boy mowed down his 17 classmates and teachers down there in Florida, I thought this can't go on anymore. But guess what? It does in places like El Paso and Dayton. The numbers just don't work out for any of us because it always keeps going up. You know, that without a doubt, right now that there are several psychos in this country that are in serious discussions with their inner demons about putting up a bigger number than the turd in Las Vegas. Who’d thought the Coast Guard would be next up to want to establish a new record or New Zealand would want in on the action? Where and how does it end? We don’t like getting killed and I am sure that all things being equal most of these killers would rather not have done what they did.
Now that I had a clear idea, I needed a way to get to speak to Misters Mc House and Mc Senate. Guess what, you give a certain amount of cash to people’s campaigns and PAC’s and it is really easy to get one, even two, of these assholes to sit down with you.
In retrospect, it was incredibly easy to strike a deal with them. I asked them just how many people must be killed in a single gun fueled day before they thought everybody would demand a return to strict gun controls and it could pass with no complications? Not surprisingly, because they must have had this conversation before, they both simultaneously answered, 500. I next posited to them, “would $2 billion be enough for them to guarantee, on pain of death, that if a mass killing of this scale occurred, they would get comprehensive gun control legislation passed?” They said that it would take $10 million per yes vote in the Senate with another $5 million per no vote since they would know what was going on and want in on it. They said that they had to make up for all future lost graft from the gun folks. So, a billion for the Senate. The 435 congress-people would require an average of $1.5 million for another $650 million, add in $100 million each for these two goons and we will just round it to $2 billion and it is a done deal.
We then had some back and forth over various technical details such as when the money was to be paid, “once the required legislation is signed into law.” The legislators will receive their piece of the 2 Large in the form of paychecks, with withholding taken out and a notation that it is received for services – voting. Finally, honesty in legislative process.
Once I got the list of their wants and needs, I gave them mine. The legislation needed to pass before the first victim of some day’s future killing spree was put in the ground. The killings didn’t all have to be at the same location, because even that would be extreme by modern day battlefield numbers. The legislation must ban any auto or semi-automatic weapons and the ammo that fuels them. All existing guns of this type are to be turned in for cash, after which it is a fine and jail time to have one. If you absolutely need to shoot weapons of war, gun clubs will have the ability to allow you to store your gun there and supply you with ammo when you come into to shoot. All other remaining guns must be registered and there is a mental health exam and a mandatory 30 day waiting period and extensive background check and gun safety course to purchase a gun from any source. If any guns are in the house, they must be locked up and all other inhabitants of the house must also take gun safety courses. The same day when this future massacre occurs, they will both announce that they will be donating $100,000 to each of the families that were killed in the inevitable hail of lead. The $ 50 million is a pittance of the $2 billion they are going to get.
After reviewing the details and writing them down on a sheet of paper and making 3 copies and each of us signing them in blood, and pinky swearing an oath we then tucked them away. Mc Senate shoved his down his pants for some reason, weird.
Strange as it might seem doing all of that was the hard part. Getting 500 peopled gunned down was the easy part.
I am writing these final thoughts as I sit here in the bowels of the LA Coliseum with 110,000 totally psyched up violence freaks packing the stands. The same great excitement is taking place at four other stadiums around the country. I don’t know if it is appropriate to call them fans. Even though this is going to be cataclysmically awful, I have never been prouder to be an American. When we started the JUST KILL US web site, I never imagined the amount of support and participation that would happen.
Since the two deal makers didn’t really think at all about the details of so much death at once, they just assumed it was only a matter of time, like never. After seeing the actions of so many brave average citizens again and again it was easy to imagine how this could work. We saw it in Las Vegas, and those teachers in several locations. Shoppers and church goers, all willing to die for a stranger. Now because is it culturally the norm to respond, there are hero’s now at every one of these shootings. I knew that I had an answer. Pay per view. If a bunch of random drunk and stoned people will shield strangers and take a bullet for someone else, and low paid teachers will gladly lay down their lives for their students, and other students will take one for their class mates, I was sure that plenty of average citizens would gladly take a bullet so some future someone didn’t have to. So that is how “Kill-Tastic 2019” came to be. It just made more sense to get all the killing done at once rather than just limp along at 40 to 50 a clip. That is not getting us anywhere. Mowing down a bunch of little kids in NY didn’t get anything, shoot places of worship up on a regular basis, blah, blah, blah. A magical number was needed and now we know, it is 500. For a frame of reference, the single deadliest day during the Iraq war was 37 US soldiers killed. Think about that! A place where everybody’s day job is to kill someone, and they have the tools for that. That day’s total wouldn’t warrant a scroll notice across the bottom of the Weather Channel if it was done domestically.
I figured that I could start an internet campaign to get the killing together. I always believed that 499 other citizens would sign on with me. I would happily give my life today if I thought it would save tens of thousands of others in the future. I am old, got nothing real important going on and this would be a real cool thing to do on behalf of society. What rational, moral, God-fearing, God-loving, God-Damned Patriot wouldn’t give up their life if they knew it could save as a few thousand people a year? I am amazed that it even got off the ground let alone became the highest grossing pay per view in history.
This is a big wide beautiful country with a lot of basically good people and a smaller bunch of assholes. That last group doesn’t count. Since a majority of us want some form of stricter gun control and evidently, as each new mass killing shows us, a lot of us are willing to take a bullet for someone else, why not combine the two. Thus, began the JUST KILL US campaign. To the dismay of the distinguished GOP leaders, they forgot to mention any sort of prohibition against the organization of the mass kill since they wrongfully assumed that only Washington pols are so heartless and uncaring. Even they wouldn’t think of putting this up on the internet:
JUST KILL US
Senator Mc Senate and Rep Mc House have agreed that in exchange for a measly $ 2 billion and 500 people getting killed by one or more deranged white men in a single day they will pass, veto proof, comprehensive gun control legislation within three days of the bloodletting. The NY Times and The Auto Trader of Roswell, NM have notarized copies of the agreement these gentlemen have signed.
We are looking for 476 (24 folks are already in) additional citizens who would like to be sacrificial offerings to the Gods of Guns for one last time. Minimum age 21, unless you are Make a Wish Foundation material, then it is up to you and your parents. All successful applicants must pass a competency exam and have a plausible reason to want to get your guts blown out on worldwide TV. No suicide applications will be accepted, but you will be directed to a mental health professional. Our preferred candidates are the elderly, the hobbled and infirm, those with very short life expectancy and folks that carry the Ginger Gene. All applicants must be ambulatory either on foot or with a device such as a walker or wheelchair, but that equipment must be suitable for a grass field. Each successful murder victim will have a payment of $300,000 sent to whomever they specify on the release forms. They will also be given $ 50,000 to provide for any necessary funeral expenses and family and friends that can attend their “Last Supper and Bacchanal”. (limit of 50)
In addition to needing the volunteers to take one for the team we also need 15 psycho killers. If you are a legitimate Psycho Killer threat and have a mass killing in the planning stages. Please STOP planning and preparing for your massacre and come sign up with us. Submit a video telling us why you should be part of a killing team. In addition, you will need an affidavit from your mental health professional testifying that you are capable of such an act. Get your freak on and do a good deed at the same time. Free drinks, complementary shooter’s hat and mirrored sunglasses will also be provided. Also, all successful PK candidates must agree to follow standard PK protocols and kill themselves when they are done. Separate commemorative pistols will be used for this. These will be made available on eBay once the bad feelings from the whole thing die down. These proceeds will go towards new job training for any folks that lose their job making these weapons of war.
There will be five separate venues where a “Team” of three PK’s will have suitable fire power in their quest to blow away all 100 of their victims. The PK with the most kills of all the events can take a chance to try and fire a single clip into the stands prior to being shot to pieces by the attending police. Something to think about for those of you interested in tickets to watch live.
For the successful applicants, both victims and killers, you and a companion will be provided with round trip transportation to your personnel killing field. Your return trip will be in the box or urn of your choice. Your companion will get a seat for their return trip. PK’s will also get reasonable accommodations and meals prior to the event. (under guard or course)
As everyone knows, the site attracted over 20,000,000 people who sent in their qualifications. Every day when we reviewed the submissions we were constantly in tears. 10’s of thousands every single day, of the wretched, the old, the infirm, the healthy, the young, the poor, the well to do, military, police and firemen, emergency room people, clergy, pro athletes, teachers, students, 40,000 submissions from foreign countries and even two Amish folks. All willing to take one for the future safety of their fellow citizens. Nobody wanted to die, but everyone was willing to die so that others could live. That’s battlefield shit right there.
Every single one of the applicants was saying in some fashion, “It would be an honor and privilege to get shot in my face, have the bullet ricochet off my spine, travel down, ripping through my organs and then finally out my ass. I would endure it twice if I could, just to rid our nation of the scourge of guns. You can come by and shoot the shit out of my dying body if it means that nobody ever must hear of a bunch of children getting shot again.” 10’s of thousands of times each day we were shown true courage and the willingness to sacrifice. We picked 10 representatives from each state since we all have an equal stake in the outcome. The other thing that we were amazed by everyday was the in-pouring of support for those that were volunteering to go all Roman Colosseum. 10’s of millions of citizens saying how much they respected and loved those that were willing to sacrifice for them and their families. $680 million in small donations were sent in and all contained a note saying to give the money to the families of the ones getting killed on their behalf and how grateful they were.
As you might expect the cable companies stepped right up and got the pay per view gig together in remarkably short time. Not surprising though, given that the best to date, is a take of $ 400 million and less than 5 million viewers. The best, free, Super Bowl was 120 million and the wizards of the cable world viewed it as a possible global market of at least 300 million, with 100 million in the US alone. The reason viewership in the US was expected to be so good was everyone knew the revenue was going to various causes such as financial support for past victims of gun violence and the sensible thing was to pay for the program, unplug your tv so no one could watch and go do something that will make your neighborhood a better place. We also knew from consulting various professionals that getting the stadiums full would not be a problem if we could assure a camera free environment, so people couldn’t be outed for paying good money and showing up to watch the slaughter. This is America, so of course we worked with the NRA and put together tour packages with airfare, hotel, commemorative silver-plated, (non-functioning) assault weapon and shuttered bus to the stadium. An extra billion in revenue. At first, we were skeptical the stadiums could be filled, but when we thought about it, it is only 600,000 people and we know more than that watch beheading videos, so why not view this live with luxury seating and beer?
The Slaughterhouse 500 took a vote on what to do with the proceeds of the event, after expenses. Gross Revenue is estimated to top $10 Billion. The first $2 Billion will go to the evil twins and their toxic spawn, the rest of the legislators. $ 1 billion to the families of the Slaughterhouse 500. $3 Billion will to local politicians and the various permits and waivers required at each venue. Of the $4 Billion left the group decided $2 Billion to offsetting costs of past gun violence. The remaining $2 billion will be made available to anyone or group that can come up with a mechanism to produce universal health care. The consensus was that with the $50 Billion society would save annually with the substantial reduction in gun violence, it should now be affordable.
Last night at the “Last Supper” was the single greatest moment of most everyone’s life. We had a big dinner for everyone and their guests, open bar, great weed in the parking lot. Rivers of tears, aching jaws from laughter, lives re-lived in moments, lifelong friendships made in minutes. All that will end in a hail of bullets today. All sadness completely overwhelmed by the knowledge and the joy that in less than 24 hours our country will be a better place and an inexplicable madness will have been purged from our soul. Once in a break from the laughter, it struck me, that a short distance away the PK’ers were also getting ready. I started to cry when I thought how horrible it must be, to be so fucked up, to be over there, where there is only madness and hate and not here with us where there is love, peace, commitment and understanding. I am pretty sure that tomorrow we will all die happy, but I have my doubts about being able to murder happy. Are they hanging out together? Talking about tomorrow? Practicing with first person shooter video games? Telling stories about themselves? Is there anything to laugh about? Or are they alone in their rooms with their demons?
Side note here for you social scientists. A bunch of social and physical misfits doing a Dead Man Walking routine can be incredibly brutal in its application of humor. We all agreed that we will not just stand passively to be gunned down, this is our last act, so act we must. We agree that running around and making it as difficult as possible for the PK’s is only fair to the viewing audience. Most of us envision some sort of Keystone Cop thing with some pushing wheelchairs and those in electric chairs doing figure 8’s and stuff. One fit lady, Rhonda, is going to cartwheel her way through the show, figuring it gives a harder target and is more entertaining to the fans. Three enterprising folks from Minnesota showed up with targets printed on their shirts front and back. They got Target to add $ 50 million to the victim’s fund if they wear the shirts. One old Marine is going to make them work for it. He is wearing a bullet proof vest and helmet. There are folks that will show up in chicken, squirrel, deer and Trump costumes. I am most partial to the two gentleman that are coming as Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny. What makes it especially neat is that we got one of the PK’ers to agree to dress as Elmer Fud. I understand that the victims in the “Met Life Massacre” are going to try and pull off a falling domino routine. Nice metaphor.
They just finished the National Anthem and I can hear the beginning of the Stones “Sympathy for the Devil” being played, so it is time to get ready to take the field. This is not like a start to an NFL game. The average age is 62, there are 13 folks in wheelchairs, 16 use walkers and another half dozen use a cane. It will take a half hour to just get us onto the field and spread out. There are 100 of us here in the tunnel. No one is upset, no one is nervous, no one is regretting their decision. Everyone has tears of joy. It is amazing how happy everyone is, I am so glad I am here, these are the best people in America for the next hour.

2019.07.17 22:31 pijinglish Part 4: A Timeline of Epstein, Trump, Sex Trafficking, and the Intelligence Community

EDIT: This was originally posted over at Keep_Track, but they decided it was still too conspiracy minded. Anyway, enjoy.
I'm posting this as a follow up to my posts last week, which have since been removed by the mods. While I might not agree with their decision, this post isn't intended to be an angry rebuttal. This is their sub, and I can understand why they felt my posts might not be appropriate for a sub that wishes to be taken seriously. I tried to acknowledge the links which I knew might be problematic, but that doesn't change the fact that, as sources, they remain problematic. That said, all three posts seemed to be generally well received, and I'd like to think they held some value even if they were admittedly highly speculative at times.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, I've reposted last week's posts on a different sub, and I'll link to them here if the mods don't mind. [Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 -- I'll wait for approval before linking.] This post, then, is my attempt to explain why I think an examination of this kind is necessary at the moment, and why I don't believe it to be a liberal version of Pizzagate. I promise I'm not trying to skirt the rules or to somehow make this about me, but I don't think I really clarified a few important points that I should have.
First off, I followed Pizzagate right from the start. (Searching through Reddit comments is a nightmare, but here's one quick thread I was involved in around the time the story broke. Here's another.) I'm originally from DC myself, and I actually know several people who helped open Comet Pizza back in 2006. They were bartenders, kitchen staff, and servers, and I spent a fair amount of time there after hours while my friends closed up. My friends' bands played there, we had birthday parties there, even my grad school graduation party was held there. So when I first heard the allegations I was pretty shocked, but then it became pretty clear pretty quickly that it all looked like bullshit. The story has been pretty roundly debunked by this point, so I don't think I need to get into that. How, then, is this different? The most important difference, in my mind, is the origin of the story.
In the case of Pizzagate, there wasn't really a coherent starting point. It likely originated on 4chan and was then amplified based on wishful thinking and intentional propaganda, despite the fact that there were no known victims. I'll get into that a bit more in a few. My posts last week were, I admit, highly speculative. The idea that Trump and Epstein have been involved in a sex trafficking ring with links to the intelligence community seems absurd. But I wasn't speculating based on something I pulled from thin air. I was speculating based on comments made by the Secretary of Labor, regarding his time as U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida. Whatever our opinions are of Acosta, he's not some random neckbeard on 4chan, and these are his words about why he decided to cut a deal with Epstein:
“I was told Epstein ‘belonged to intelligence’ and to leave it alone."
That's a really, really strange claim. I think it deserves to be examined, but I'm not sure how we go about doing that when both the subject matter and circumstances of the claim are so utterly bizarre that they defy belief. Whether they ultimately have any merit is still completely up in the air, but given their source, and given the fact that there are dozens of actual victims who have given testimony implicating both Epstein and Trump, individually and together, of committing sexual assault and rape on both adults and adolescents, we might give Acosta's claims a closer look. But in order to do so we have to wrap our minds around some really unbelievable ideas. That was what my posts last week were trying, albeit clumsily, to accomplish.
In Part 1, I wanted to establish that yes, the CIA had dabbled in prostitution and sexual blackmail. (I should have probably also mentioned Russia's reliance on kompromat, but for the most part I think that's more widely agreed upon by the people who frequent this sub.) I also wanted to establish that many of the people in Trump's circle in the mid-1970's and 80's were allegedly involved in various forms of sexual blackmail and child exploitation through modeling agencies. The rumors about Roy Cohn existed long before Trump ever entered the picture as a political figure.
And while I mentioned Roger Stone as a "dirty trickster", I failed to mention that, according to Business Insider:
(01/25/2019) Everything we know about the 'Manhattan Madam', who moved out of the New York duplex she shared with Roger Stone a week before the FBI raided it:
New York's notorious "Manhattan Madam" has come back into the limelight. Kristin Davis, who was known for running a high-end prostitution ring in the 2000s, is a close associate to Roger Stone, who was arrested in the Russia investigation on Friday on charges that he lied to Congress and obstructed the probe. Davis, who shared a New York duplex with Stone, told CNN that the FBI called her at 6 a.m. on Friday and told her they had a search warrant for the residence. ...Kristin Davis started her career working at a hedge fund. She claimed that by the end of her stint, she was senior vice president of operations for a $2 billion fund. ...In her time working in finance, she said she was asked to book escorts for her bosses. It was from here that she decided to set up her own agency.
According to the Washington Post: (08/10/2018) How an ex-madam, a political trickster and a toddler got tangled up in the Russia investigation
Davis and Stone have been friends since 2008. She says she met him when they appeared together on a radio show following her release from New York’s Rikers Island jail, where she’d served several months on a charge of promoting prostitution. Stone called her, she says, and declared: “You’re brilliant. Can we talk about what you’re going to do with your life?” Davis, a poised and articulate speaker who has touted her business acumen, had a compelling backstory, one with natural appeal to Stone, a bon vivant with a long-established reputation for taking delight in all things salacious who sometimes quips that he is “tri-sexual. I’ve tried everything.” ...In her late teens, she says, she was already working in the finance industry, eventually becoming a vice president at an East Coast hedge fund in her early 20s. She noticed how highflying finance types celebrated by hiring prostitutes. Sensing a business opportunity, she opened a high-end prostitution service in New York. ...Davis has claimed repeatedly that Eliot Spitzer, the former New York governor, was one of her frequent clients, using the code name “James” while he was serving as the state’s attorney general. She dedicated a full chapter in her book to those allegations. Spitzer has vigorously denied the claims. He declined to comment. Davis was arrested and sent to Rikers in 2008, the same year that Spitzer, who was never charged with a crime, resigned as governor after the New York Times reported that he’d patronized the Emperors Club VIP, another high-priced prostitution service.
That's all salacious enough, but even more pertinent to the point of this series of posts: back in 2010, The Atlantic reported: (10/13/2010) Meet the Leader of Eliot Spitzer's Smear Campaign
On Fox TV and at the New York Post, a peculiar detail is the subject of endless fascination: Did Eliot Spitzer, ex-governor of New York and newly minted CNN show host, really insist on wearing knee-high black socks during his encounters with high-priced escorts? A far more important question is this: Where did the story come from and why? The answer to that question is important because it reveals much about political bloodsport in this country and how the media are routinely manipulated by clever political operatives who are paid to attack their enemies by "leaking" damaging rumors in ways that quickly enter the mainstream media as fact. The tale of the Luv Gov's black socks was originally penned by Roger Stone, the amanuensis of the dark side and perhaps the Republican Party's best-dressed and most ruthless dirty trickster. He first introduced the hosiery motif in a letter he claims his lawyer -- Paul Rolf Jensen -- sent to the FBI, as a story heard, second-hand, from an off-work call girl at an "adult-themed club." (Don't you just love the detail?) Problem #1: The FBI never received the letter from Stone. Problem #2: Stone's letter -- dated prior to Spitzer's downfall -- only surfaced after Spitzer's downfall, leading some to wonder (because of problem #1 and because the address and the name of the agent/addressee were blacked out) if his letter had been back-dated to make it look as though he had sent it before the scandal. Problem #3: Mainstream media outlets all over the world -- including the NY Times and the Miami Herald -- give credence to the black socks story, even though it was based on a rumor or hallucination originated by Stone. Stone had a motive to plant the story because he had been paid to embarrass the governor. First, former NY State Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno hired Stone for $20,000/month to take on Spitzer. With Stone's help, Bruno turned everyone's attention away from his own corruption -- using state aircraft and vehicles to go on personal fund-raising trips -- and toward an attack on Spitzer for "spying" on Bruno. (The "spying" consisted of releasing public records of Bruno's state-paid travel.) In his enthusiasm to take on the Sheriff of Wall Street, Stone left an obscene message, which is included in my new film, Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer, on the voicemail of Spitzer's father. "The voice does sound eerily like me," a smiling Stone told me in an on-camera interview. But, even though the call originated from his phone number, Stone denies it actually was him, claiming a "rogue unit" of the NY State Police "under Spitzer's control" had pasted together recordings of his voice. (I recall wondering what tapes might have been used to put together phrases like "your phony, psycho, piece-of-shit son.") When Bruno was forced to fire Stone over the incident, Stone found other sponsors to pay him to stay on the Spitzer attack detail. According to Stone, his paymasters were "wealthy Republicans." Fortune's Peter Elkind, who contributed critical reporting to the film and is the author of the book Client 9, found evidence that Stone had bragged to a South Florida blogger that the "wealthy Republicans" -- called "The Group" -- were organized around a coordinating operative, Republican lobbyist Wayne Berman, and financiers including former AIG Chairman Hank Greenberg and Home Depot financier Ken Langone -- all major-league Spitzer haters. (Stone denies this.) Mysteriously, before anyone could even imagine Spitzer's spectacular fall, Stone was predicting it in cryptic emails and telegrams. "Eliot's going down," he told Rich Baum, the secretary to then Gov. Spitzer, in an email. While there is no doubt that Spitzer provided the weapon and the ammunition for his own political demise, did Stone play the role of the hit man? ...[T]he sexual hypocrisy of "family-values Republicans," as evidenced by Newt Gingrich, David Vitter (who ordered prostitutes during congressional roll call votes), John Ensign, Mark Sanford, Bob Livingston, etc., doesn't interest Stone for a simple reason: He is a paid political assassin who targets Democrats. ...So let's sum up: Stone helped take down Spitzer, contrived the black socks story to keep him in disgrace, hired an ex-madam to corroborate the story and then convinced newspapers and TV shows -- seduced by the fun of it all -- to act as confirming sources. And who is Roger Stone advising now? Carl Paladino, the Republican candidate for NY Governor, the would-be replacement for the man Stone takes credit for taking out. Kaching!
And despite all this, it might still be beside the point had Stone not been a constant and important presence in Trump's life right up to and through the 2016 presidential campaign. And once Stone was ousted, he was simply replaced by Stone's old business partner, Paul Manafort, who had an apartment in Trump Tower and would be accused by his own daughters of forcing their mother into non-consensual gangbangs. Unlike Pizzagate, which was baseless, we can see that highly influential people in Trump's sphere were repeatedly accused of the kinds of behavior that give plausibility to the claims of sex trafficking and blackmail.
In Part 2, I detailed a couple of conspiracy theory-like scandals in the 1980's that alleged links between the GOP and child sex trafficking. I won't reiterate them here, but my point wasn't to try to connect either Trump or Epstein to those particular conspiracies, rather to point out that at the time they were both coming up in the world, many of the people they were or would be surrounded by were implicated in these accusations. I also detailed early rape allegations against Trump, and his decision to focus on modeling agencies with less than sterling reputations. (The Guardian published "The Full List" on 6/24/2019) Trump has now famously said in 2002 that he'd known Epstein for "15 years", which places their friendship as starting around 1987. This means that Epstein's career skyrocketed from math teacher to partying with Donald Trump in about a decade. By 1992, Trump seems to have understood Epstein's tastes well enough that he knew what kinds of parties to throw for him: two guys who don't drink, and 28 very young women.
Just a few days ago, New York Magazine published this:
(07/11/19) Real Hedge-Fund Managers Have Some Thoughts on What Epstein Was Actually Doing
Epstein’s spotty professional history has also drawn a lot of attention in recent days, and Kass says it was one of the first things that raised his suspicions years ago. Now 66, Epstein didn’t come from money and never graduated from college, yet he landed a teaching job at a fancy private school (“unheard of,” says Kass) and rose through the ranks in the early 1980s at investment bank Bear Stearns. Within no time, Kass notes, Epstein was made a partner of the firm — and then was promptly and unceremoniously ousted. (Epstein reportedly left the firm following a minor securities violation.) Despite this “squishy work experience,” as Kass puts it, at some point after his quick exit, Epstein launched his own hedge fund, J. Epstein & Co., later renamed Financial Trust Co. Along the way, he began peddling the improbable narrative that he was so selective he would only work with billionaires. Oddly, Epstein also claimed to do all the investing by himself while his 150 employees all worked in the back office — which Kass says reminds him of Madoff’s cover story. Though it now appears that Epstein had many fewer employees than he claimed, according to the New York Times: Thomas Volscho, a sociology professor at the College of Staten Island who has been researching for a book on Mr. Epstein, recently obtained [a 2002 disclosure] form, which shows [Epstein’s] Financial Trust had $88 million in contributions from shareholders. In a court filing that year, Mr. Epstein said his firm had about 20 employees, far fewer than the 150 reported at the time by New York magazine. Given this puzzling set of data points, the hedge-fund managers we spoke to leaned toward the theory that Epstein was running a blackmail scheme under the cover of a hedge fund. How such a scheme could hypothetically work has been laid out in detail in a thread on the anonymous Twitter feed of @quantian1. It’s worth reading in its entirety, but in summary it is a rough blueprint for how a devious aspiring hedge-fund manager could blackmail rich people into investing with him without raising too many flags. Kass and former hedge-fund manager Whitney Tilson both emailed the thread around in investing circles and both quickly discovered that their colleagues found it quite convincing. “This actually sounds very plausible,” Tilson wrote in an email forwarding the thread to others. “He somehow cajoled these guys to invest,” says Kass, speaking of hypothetical blackmailed investors who gave Epstein their money to invest, but managed to keep their names private. The fact that Epstein’s fund is offshore in a tax haven — it is based in the U.S. Virgin Islands — and has a secret client list both add credence to the blackmail theory. So what did Epstein do with the money he did have under his management, setting aside the questions of how he got it and how much he had? One hedge-fund manager speculates that Epstein could have just put the client money in an S&P 500 index fund, perhaps with a tax dodge thrown in. “I put in $100 million, I get the S&P 500 minus some fees,” he says, speaking of a theoretical client’s experience. Over the past few decades, the client would have “made a shitload” — as would Epstein. A structure like that wouldn’t have required trading desks or analysts or complex regulatory disclosures. Kass has kicked around a similar idea: Maybe Epstein just put all the client money in U.S. treasuries — the simplest and safest investment there is, and the kind of thing one guy actually can do by himself. If the blackmail theory sounds far-fetched, it’s worth keeping in mind that it was also floated by one of Epstein’s victims, Virginia Roberts Giuffre. “Epstein … also got girls for Epstein’s friends and acquaintances. Epstein specifically told me that the reason for him doing this was so that they would ‘owe him,’ they would ‘be in his pocket,’ and he would ‘have something on them,’” she said in a court affidavit, according to the investigative series in the Miami Herald that brought the case back to the public’s attention late last year. In the 2015 filing, Giuffre claimed that Epstein “debriefed her” after she was forced into sexual encounters so that he could possess “intimate and potentially embarrassing information” to blackmail friends into parking their money with him. She also said photographic and video evidence existed — an assertion that looms especially large now that federal investigators have found a trove of images in Epstein’s home safe.
And The Miami Herald recently published this:
(07/14/2019) Epstein scandal explodes in Israel as ties to former prime minister under scrutiny
Jeffrey Epstein’s arrest is reverberating in Israel, where Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his right-wing Likud party are calling for a criminal probe into former prime minister Ehud Barak’s personal and business ties with the accused sex trafficker, Israeli media is reporting. Barak, 77, served as prime minister from 1999 to 2001. This month he formed a new party to run for prime minister against Netanyahu, who called for new elections in September. Once political allies, Barak and Netanyahu have been sparring on social media, with Netanyahu producing a video raising Barak’s relationship to the multimillionaire New York financier, and Ohio billionaire Les Wexner, who has given money to Barak, the Times of Israel reported.
In Part 3, I listed the numerous allegations against Trump and Epstein, many of which are well known by now but some of the lesser known ones -- like Trump's decision to put 13 year old Ivanka under the control of a modeling agency whose owner, John Casablancas, was known to rape his underage models -- may have been new to some people. Given Trump's long and uncomfortable track record of sexualizing Ivanka, and Casablancas' own record of sexualizing his underage daughter, the decision is deeply unsettling. That, plus the fact that Trump likely met Casablancas through Roy Cohn, and had known Epstein's madam, who had her own potential ties to various intelligence agencies, and you've got a weird web worth looking at. Conclusive? No, but hard to ignore.
The timing of the Wikileaks drop that released the Podesta emails which would be mangled to come up with fake codewords that formed the basis of the Pizzagate rumors is well known: the same day Trump's "grab 'em by the pussy" tape was made public. Among the many pieces of "evidence" used to discredit the Podestas was their weird art collections -- a strange detail that proved little, yet was repeated often, even while not one victim had made any kind of accusation. Additionally, the artist Marina Abramovic, would also be dragged into it, allegedly as a depraved cannibal. Nothing came of any of it, even while the right claimed it #confirmed the conspiracy. Meanwhile:
(07/11/2019) The Décor in Jeffrey Epstein’s NYC Townhouse Is the Stuff of Nightmares
The Times cites a lot of design nonsense in a recent piece about the townhouse, but the single piece of information that will go down in infamy is that Epstein possesses a mural depicting “a photorealistic prison scene that included barbed wire, corrections officers and a guard station, with Mr. Epstein portrayed in the middle.” He reportedly commissioned it a few years ago, and now it’s displayed somewhere on the second floor. R. Couri Hay, a public-relations specialist who visited Epstein’s home three months ago, told the Times he was invited for the express purpose of viewing the mural. “[Epstein] said, ‘That’s me, and I had this painted because there is always the possibility that could be me again,’” said Hay. This is likely a reference to the 18-month jail sentence Epstein served (but only 13 months of it) as part of a 2008 plea deal that allowed him to avoid federal charges and, potentially, a lifetime of imprisonment. Though Epstein was accused of molesting dozens of underage girls at his Palm Beach property, he was allowed to plead guilty to a mere two counts of soliciting prostitution from a minor. ...The home featured a “life-size female doll hanging from a chandelier.” ...A 2003 Vanity Fair piece on the townhouse described the entrance hall as decorated with “row upon row of individually framed eyeballs … imported from England.” ...According to one visitor who spoke to the Times, there’s a chessboard at the bottom of the staircase that is hair-raising in its commitment to creeping people the fuck out. Each of its customized figurines is modeled after one of his staffers and “dressed suggestively.” ...Vanity Fair’s 2003 report also contains a detail about a stuffed black poodle in Epstein’s study. It’s situated atop a grand piano and Epstein has reportedly pointed it out to visitors, telling them “No decorator would ever tell you to do that … But I want people to think what it means to stuff a dog.”
(07/09/2019) Jeffrey Epstein’s Latest Accuser Is an Artist Who Claims the Billionaire Sex Offender Lured Her in With Promises to Help Her Career
Among the latest accusations are those made by 49-year-old Maria Farmer, who, in an affidavit filed in April, claims that Epstein leveraged her dreams of becoming an artist to lure her into his web. She says that Epstein went on to sexually assault both her and her younger sister, who was 15 at the time.
I could go on, but my point is that, unlike Pizzagate (which, if Im going to make any accusations myself, looks convincingly to me like an attempt to get ahead of the real story through disinfo), there are real victims here. The claims of Epstein's involvement with intelligence agencies doesn't come from the back corners of the internet, but from the prosecutor of the case itself.
(07/10/2019) THE EPSTEIN SCANDAL IS GIVING QANON EVERYTHING PIZZAGATE COULDN’T
“The broadest grievances of the QAnon community revolve around corrupt elites who are untouched by the justice system, covered-up child abuse, and sex trafficking,” said Travis View, a researcher who hosts a podcast about QAnon. “Part of the promise of the QAnon is that these injustices will be corrected soon. You can see how the credible allegations and arrest of Jeffrey Epstein ticks all these boxes.” ...“The problem, which is typical of QAnon, is that they make outlandish claims that unnecessarily go beyond the evidence,” said View. “In the case of Epstein, they absurdly claim that Epstein Island contains secret underground tunnels in which children were abused and sacrificed. This is an echo of the satanic panic of the 80s, in which preschools were baselessly accused of containing tunnels used for hiding child abuse.” [Note: In Part 2 I mentioned The Franklin Coverup, which in my opinion managed to garble instances of actual child abuse with nonsense about satanic cults. QAnon also manages to make Epstein's actual child abuse seem outlandish and implausible.] ...In addition to the child sex trafficking conspiracy, QAnon posits that the Russia investigation was actually a front — and Trump and special counsel Robert Mueller are in cahoots to bring down the sex ring. Any day now, they believe, Mueller will unseal thousands of pending federal indictments against celebrities and high-ranking officials. QAnon began in October 2017 when “Q” (in reference to the highest government security clearance available) posted a cryptic message on 4chan, referencing equally cryptic remarks by Trump at a photo op with military personnel. At the appearance, the president warned about an impending “calm before the storm” — which has since become a slogan associated with Q. It’s often been described as a spinoff from the Pizzagate conspiracy, which posited that then-candidate Hillary Clinton and Democrat officials were running a child trafficking ring below the Comet Ping Pong pizza restaurant in D.C. The Pizzagate theory, which spread quickly via social media, inspired a man to drive six hours from North Carolina, armed with an AR-15, which he fired upon arrival. Nobody was hurt, but the incident was a tangible reminder that fake news and conspiracy theories can inspire real-world violence.
As my previous posts were blowing up, I mentioned that I intended at some point to make a post like this about Clinton's connection to all this. I have my own theories, but I think it's worth examining and I certainly hope that people smarter and more qualified than myself are looking into it. (I have included an edit in my repost of Part 3 that includes info on questions around Jane Doe's testimony as well as Ghislaine Maxwell's presence at Chelsea Clinton's wedding.) But there are so, so many connections between Trump and Epstein and various people accused of sexual blackmail going back decades that it's hard to ignore.
Additionally, Courthouse News reports:
(07/16/2019) Prosecution of Child-Sex Traffickers Plummeted Under Trump
For many victims, last week’s incarceration of sex offender Jeffrey Epstein represents belated justice after more than a decade of impunity and governmental complicity. Beneath that gloomy surface, however, an even darker picture emerges: federal prosecutions of those who trafficked children for sex dropped 26.7% over the last year. The startling numbers appeared Tuesday in a report from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. “If the present pace of such prosecutions continues, the fiscal 2019 total will be 162, compared to 221 last year,” TRAC’s report states. The Obama administration dramatically ramped up such prosecutions, climbing threefold from 85 cases in 2009, the year the 44th president took office, to more than 260 during his final year in the White House. While those prosecutions held steady in the first year under President Donald Trump, TRAC’s analysis of Justice Department data says they have taken a dramatic plunge every year since. “Compared to five years ago, the estimate of FY 2019 prosecutions of this type is down 32.2 percent, from 239,” the study says. “However, prosecutions over the past year are still much higher than they were ten years ago, up 90.6 percent from the 85 reported in 2009.”
Meanwhile, the right is relying on stuff like this:

A common tactic among purveyors of misinformation is to hint at lurid or explosive claims by “just asking questions” about otherwise mundane pieces of evidence. Twitter user @WinstonConvefe employed this strategy in July 2019 in posting a photograph of President Obama and actor George Clooney on a boat with a purported child, along with a series of questions suggesting that something nefarious had just occurred
[Can you imagine Q's response if R Kelly had been arrested in a building owned by Clinton or Obama? EDIT: Or if Obama had moved dozens of migrant teenage girls near his private resort?]
EDIT 2: (07/16/2019) WAPO: Trump’s tweets are a distraction for something else he doesn't want us to see
While Trump was doubling down on his controversial tweets, Epstein was attending his bail hearing. At the hearing, prosecutors revealed that the contents of a locked safe in Epstein’s Manhattan mansion allegedly included diamonds, cash — and a bogus and outdated passport with Epstein’s photograph, a different name and an address in Saudi Arabia. Coincidence? Maybe. But, really? What’s clear is that Trump wants to distance himself from Epstein, whom he knew socially, as photos have captured . In one instance, they were reportedly the only two male guests at a party attended by a bevy of young women. That’s a pretty intimate bromance. It’s also clear that the very private Epstein has received very special treatment despite his illegal activities, including the 2007 non-prosecution agreement negotiated by outgoing labor secretary Alexander Acosta, who on Friday agreed to step down after reports detailed his role in the sweetheart deal when he was a U.S. attorney in Miami. The bogus passport opens a Pandora’s box of questions. Who knows what Epstein was up to? Who else might be implicated? All those diamonds and cash suggest that Epstein was prepared to leave suddenly. Who knows? Somebody. Maybe several somebodies. But 2020 is a long way off — and anyone who was ever connected to Epstein must be sweating grenades about now.
Right now I don't think we have a clear idea of who exactly is blackmailing who or why or for how long it may or may not have been going on, but we might have to re-evaluate what we think we know in order to actually make sense of it all.
I hope the links provided in this post meet the standards of this sub. [EDIT: It didn't.]
I don't know how we're supposed to proceed. We live in interesting times.

2019.07.07 18:59 TheGadfly_ Married, Divorced, Ghosted, Help

Obligatory for my good friend (we'll call him James), but we are both trying to figure this out.

At 23 James married [Dec 2015] his sweetheart (we'll call her Katie) in NY when he was (and still is) serving in the military. The military relocated him and her to Florida [2016] for an assignment. Katie realized the military wife life isn't for her, and was nowhere to be found when James returned from a several month deployment. 4 weeks later, Katie shows up with a friend to pack her things and go back to NY. [July 2016] She initiated a verbal agreement saying divorce was the next step and that James would remain in Florida for his assignment, she would go back to NY, and she would send him the papers.

The agreement for both parties to divorce was mutual and amicable. Two years later [2019] that is not the case.

He has tried to reach out multiple times to hash out the divorce, he just wants this done with. She does not come from money so she was trying to get this done without big expenses, but since going dark we don't know what the deal is. She does not answer phone calls, does not return texts, nothing.

James paid for a LegalZoom service ($949) to finalize the divorce online, he filled his side out, she will not.

She has been dating someone else for over a year and says she is divorced around town, also, James' dad died recently and her and her entire family were silent, so I don't think she is trying to work things out here.

Given her lack of response, what are James' options to get this divorce finalized? The plan right now is to contact a lawyer and see what they have to offer, but we are hoping the internet has some insight into this situation.

Disclaimer: No kids, James owns his own car, has a 401k, career military guy w/ GI bill, life insurance, overall well situated, but no other assets. She works at a grocery store, and is paying off the car in the name of James' late father, otherwise no other assets.
