We Have Their Names: Epstein Brought 8 Women with Him to Visit Clinton at White House – Report

Isa Cox, The Western Journal
January 17, 2022

The notorious Jeffrey Epstein visited the Clinton White House over a dozen times with over half a dozen different women between 1993 and 1995, according to new records obtained by the Daily Mail — coming as a relatively small surprise based on what we know about both former President Bill Clinton and the aforementioned sex offender.

Beginning shortly after Clinton’s inauguration in 1993, Epstein made the first of 17 visits to the People’s House, bringing along at least four known girlfriends and several other female companions, according to a report from the British outlet.

Much of Epstein’s private life has come to light in recent months amid the trial of his longtime accused former madame Ghislaine Maxwell, who was convicted in December for grooming and trafficking the underage girls he abused.

The notorious Jeffrey Epstein visited the Clinton White House over a dozen times with over half a dozen different women between 1993 and 1995, according to new records obtained by the Daily Mail — coming as a relatively small surprise based on what we know about both former President Bill Clinton and the aforementioned sex offender.

Beginning shortly after Clinton’s inauguration in 1993, Epstein made the first of 17 visits to the People’s House, bringing along at least four known girlfriends and several other female companions, according to a report from the British outlet.

Much of Epstein’s private life has come to light in recent months amid the trial of his longtime accused former madame Ghislaine Maxwell, who was convicted in December for grooming and trafficking the underage girls he abused.

Other names on the logs, according to the outlet, include Celina Midelfart, Eva Andersson-Dubin and Francis Jardine, three of Epstein’s known girlfriends.

The other women named are Jennifer Garrison, Shelley Gafni, Jennifer Driver, and Lyoubov Orlova, although their relationships to Epstein are unclear, the Mail reported.

Midelfart, who would have been 21 at the time (the same age as Monica Lewinsky when she had her liaison with the then-president, as it happens), was alleged during the Maxwell trial to have dated Epstein in the mid-1990s. The Norwegian heiress also once dated former President Donald Trump.

Although three witnesses attested to her relationship with Epstein, Midelfart has denied the relationship through a lawyer.

She reportedly appears on the White House visitor logs with Epstein twice in one day — July 28, 1994, first at 2 p.m. and then again at 6:30 p.m.

Epstein reportedly visited twice in one day on three occasions during his visits to the Clinton White House, and visited twice when the president himself was away; once on Mar. 24, 1993, with Gafni when Clinton had already left for Texas, and the second time Epstein appeared with Andersson and Jardine on Sep. 26, 1994, at 6:30 p.m. while Clinton was attending the United Nations General Assembly in New York, the Mail reported.

Eva Andersson is now Eva Andersson-Dubin, having married hedge fund billionaire Glenn Dubin two months before her first White House visit in July 1994. Andersson-Dubin, who has confirmed she dated Epstein in the late 80s and early 90s, testified during Maxwell’s trial.

She remained close to Epstein for years after she married Dubin and one of her daughters was the financier’s goddaughter.

Jardine, now Francis Jardine-Deuess, is a former model who lives in South Africa and expressed her gratitude to Epstein for the help he gave her in their relationship.

“He wanted me to develop skills and shared the importance of making the right choices,” her statement read. “People around me misinterpreted my relationship with him because he was definitely more way out than the average man’s idea of what a woman could be or should be to a man.”

“I loved him and grieve for the way his life has turned out. I would have wished I could have expressed myself in a way that might have saved his life,” she stated.

Gafni, an Israeli model, is said by the Mail to have denied ever meeting Epstein or making a private visit to the White House, but is quoted as saying by The Jerusalem Post that while she recalled touring D.C. with family and a “Jewish guy” around that time, she “never made the connection between the Jewish guy that I met a few times 30 years ago and the monster that was revealed in the past few years.”

The man had taken her party on a plane ride tour of the capital, and a woman by that name appears on the visitor logs on Mar. 24, 1993, according to the Mail.

The outlet reported Epstein also appeared at the White House with a Jennifer Garrison on Dec. 21, 1993, and another time with a Jennifer Driver. The Mail, which found connections between several of the women who appeared on visitor logs at the same time as Epstein also appeared in flight logs for his notorious private aircraft, reportedly identified a Mark Middleton, who was serving at the time as special assistant to the president and assistant to the chief of staff, Thomas F. ‘Mack’ McLarty.

Middleton, the Mail reported, authorized the bulk of Epstein’s visits to the White House, and left the White House in 1995 shortly after his last visit, which was on Jan. 28. On the visitor logs of that day, a Lyoubov Orlova appears, which may or may not correspond with a “Luba” on Epstein’s flight logs.

The former Clinton staffer “was accused of setting himself up as an international deal-maker, exactly the kind of person that would appeal to Epstein.”

“In 1996 an investigation by the White House found that Middleton had abused his access to impress business clients and he was barred from the executive mansion without senior approval,” the Mail noted.

Now, to be honest, this log series of visits with an assortment of women may or may not tell us anything new about Epstein and Clinton — both, as it happens, notorious playboys and accused sexual predators.

It has previously been reported both that Epstein visited the White House and Clinton flew aboard the accused sexual predator’s private jet.

Epstein, who allegedly hung himself in his Manhattan jail cell in 2019, has long been said to have kept a lot of dirt on the wealthy, powerful people he roped into his sick underage sex schemes, and it does not appear that his death has stopped the eventuality that, sooner or later, some very damning dirt might come out.

The U.K.’s Prince Andrew, who has been accused by one of Epstein’s victims Virginia Giuffre of abusing her when she was 17, was just stripped of his royal title and military duties by Queen Elizabeth II as he faces a lawsuit from Giuffre in the United States over her longstanding allegations.

Maxwell is awaiting sentencing for the role she played procuring Epstein’s young victims, according to the testimony of four women who recounted the abuse and manipulation they suffered, and her legal team has now dropped an effort to keep the identities of eight “John Does” named in a previously settled lawsuit hidden.

The names of these men could soon be revealed as part of Giuffre’s lawsuit.

The Epstein tree has been shaking and shaking these last few years. It doesn’t seem like anything’s about to stop falling out any time soon.

Yeesh: Lawyers Reveal Disturbing Questions Prince Andrew Will Be Forced to Answer over Epstein Allegations

What a royal mess.

After a New York federal judge denied Prince Andrew’s legal team’s motion to dismiss accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre’s civil case against him on Wednesday, the Duke of York will either be compelled to pay a hefty settlement or face a civil trial for sexual assault in September, according to the U.K.’s Daily Mail.

Giuffre alleges “she was forced to have sex with the Duke three times in 2001 at Epstein’s multiple homes.”

The news keeps on getting worse for the royal. Already banished from performing his royal duties when these charges became known in 2019, Buckingham Palace announced on Thursday that the prince was forced to “relinquish his military titles and royal charities,” including use of the title “His Royal Highness,” The New York Times reported.

Additionally, the palace said he will be “defending this case as a private citizen.”

Spencer Kuvin, an attorney representing several of Jeffrey Epstein’s victims, spoke to the U.K.’s Mirror about what lies ahead for the royal outcast.

“It is without question the Duke will be asked about his private parts,” Kuvin said.

“Nothing is off-limits because if an underage girl can describe what the Duke of York’s private parts look like … how would that be if they had not had a relationship?”

Yikes!

Kuvin told the Mirror that “Andrew’s disastrous BBC Newsnight interview will haunt him.”https://www.youtube.com/embed/QtBS8COhhhM?version=3&rel=1&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&fs=1&hl=en&autohide=2&wmode=transparent

The Mail reported that Giuffre’s attorney, David Boies, has alleged Prince Andrew’s ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, and his daughter Beatrice will be called as witnesses. During the above-mentioned BBC interview, Andrew said he had taken Beatrice to a Woking Pizza Express on the night he allegedly spent with Giuffre in London.

In addition, Boies has mentioned Prince Charles and Meghan Markle as potential witnesses. However, the reason for their testimony is unclear.

The Mail noted that “royals based in the UK cannot be forced to give evidence due to it being a civil case in a different jurisdiction.”

The plaintiffs will likely subpoena Prince Andrew’s medical records. According to the Mail, the prince claims that “he cannot sweat due to a rush of adrenaline while on a Royal Navy ship under attack in the 1982 Falklands War fought between Britain and Argentina.”

This is significant because Giuffre alleged that Andrew had been “sweating heavily as they danced at London nightclub Tramp,” on the night he is accused of sleeping with her in London, the Mail reported.

The outlet noted that friends of Giuffre “insist she will not agree to an out of court settlement, claiming she wants to ‘send a message’ that anyone ‘with power and privilege’ accused of abusing young girls will face the full force of the law.”

“And Ms. Giuffre has instructed her lawyers that agreeing a settlement of at least $5 million with Prince Andrew — who denies the allegations being made against him — would not ‘advance that message.’”

The reality of being offered $5 million or more to settle the case could potentially change her mind. After all, she’s already ruined his life. There’s not much more she can do to hurt him.

Media lawyer Mark Stephens told the Mail, “Prince Andrew has nowhere to go. He’s effectively a dead man walking as far as the royal family is concerned.”

Ghislaine Maxwell Gives Up Battle to Keep Names of 8 Anonymous John Does in Sex Trafficking Operation Sealed

 Adam Wilson 
January 15th, 2022

While Ghislaine Maxwell’s highly publicized trial came to a close last month, where she was found guilty on 5 out of 6 charges, another legal battle is still happening to unseal the names of eight anonymous “John Doe’s” named in a civil lawsuit against Maxwell.  The right names are all allegedly high-profile individuals, ranging from politicians to business leaders and members of the royal family, one of whom is rumored to be Prince Andrew.  After fighting to keep the names sealed for months, Maxwell’s lawyers have given up on attempting to protect their identities.  The Daily Mail Reports

“Maxwell, who last month was found guilty of procuring girls for the late pedophile, had also previously opposed making the documents public, but now appears to have had a change of heart.

In a letter to Judge Preska Wednesday, Maxwell’s attorney Laura Menninger said her client will ‘leave it to the court’ to determine whether the names should be unsealed.

‘After careful review of the detailed objections submitted by [the eight Non-Party Does], counsel for Ghislaine Maxwell writes to inform the Court that she does not wish to further address those objections,’ the letter states.

‘Each of the listed Does has counsel who have ably asserted their own respective privacy rights. Ms. Maxwell, therefore, leaves it to this Court to conduct the appropriate review consistent with the Order and Protocol for Unsealing Decided Motions.”

Jeffrey Epstein’s flight logs indicate that Bill Clinton was a frequent flyer on his private jet, with the Ex-President recording 26 separate trips on the plane.

In 2019, ABC News anchor Amy Robach admitted that the Epstein story was covered up by her network in part because of Epstein’s connection to the Clinton family.  “I’ve had this story for three years…ABC would not put it on the air. It was unbelievable…We had Clinton, We had everything…”  She said in a Project Veritas expose.

She says there is Clinton dirt involved (see our previous report on Bill Clinton below) that she had but was told to spike the story:

In August 2019, Investigative reporter Conchita Sarnoff blew the lid off of the case of Bill Clinton, who falsely stated he only flew on Epstein’s plane a few times.

On May 27, the New York Post reported about an alleged affair between Bill Clinton and Maxwell.

The ex-president— who denies cheating on wife Hillary Clinton with Maxwell — reportedly engaged in the romps during overseas trips on Epstein’s private plane, a customized Boeing 727 that’s since become known as the “Lolita Express.”

The nation’s 42nd head of state also repeatedly sneaked out to visit Maxwell at her Upper East Side townhouse, as detailed in an exclusive excerpt from the “A Convenient Death: The Mysterious Demise of Jeffrey Epstein,” book by Alana Goodman and Daniel Halper, that was released in June 2020.

Queen Elizabeth II Strips Son Prince Andrew of All Military Titles Amid Sex Abuse Scandal

Sophie Mann
January 13, 2022

The Queen of England has stripped her son, Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, of all of his military titles days after it was decided that a civil sexual abuse trial brought by Virginia Giuffre against Andrew will move forward.

“With The Queen’s approval and agreement, The Duke of York’s military affiliations and Royal patronages have been returned to the Queen. The Duke of York will continue not to undertake any public duties and is defending this case as a private citizen,” read a statement from the Palace.

Additionally, Andrew will no longer be permitted to use the title “HRH” – His Royal Highness – in any capacity.

Andrew served in the Royal Navy as a helicopter pilot and instructor, as well as the captain of a warship. The duke was formerly Colonel of the Grenadier Guards, one of the oldest and most celebrated British Army regiments. 

Previously, Buckingham Palace defended Andrew’s military appointments, even after he stepped down from royal duties in 2019, following revelations about his relationship with the late Jeffrey Epstein.

The Queen’s decision follows an open letter addressed to Her Majesty from retired servicemen who described their “upset and anger” at Andrew’s retention of his military titles.

Queen Refuses To Pay For Prince Andrew’s Pedo Defense, Forcing Him To Unload Chalet In Fire Sale

The Queen of England is reportedly refusing to pay for Prince Andrew’s legal fees while a US judge decides whether a civil case brought by accuser Virginia Guiffre will be allowed to proceed, according to Newshub.

Giuffre claims that Andrew, son of the Queen and Duke of York, sexually assaulted her when she was 17-years-old after Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell sex-trafficked her.

The prince has consistently denied the allegations, including in an infamous 2019 interview in which one of his defences was a claim he cannot sweat

An American judge is currently deciding whether a civil case brought by Giuffre against the Duke in New York should go ahead. Prince Andrew’s lawyers argue he can’t be tried as he is covered by a deal made in 2009 between Epstein and Giuffre.

The deal, released publicly earlier this month, shows that Giuffre was paid US$500,000 by the now-dead sex offender Epstein to end a claim for damages. She also agreed not to bring any cases against other “potential defendants”; whether that applies to Prince Andrew, who is not named in the deal, is what is in question. -Newshub

If the trial is allowed, many suspect Andrew could settle out of court. According to The Times, a settlement is “on the table,” but Andrew reportedly “has been very clear that he wants to clear his name.”

Meanwhile, The Mirror reports that Andrew is looking for a fire sale on his US$23 million Swiss chalet to pay for legal fees, after the Queen reportedly said she wouldn’t pay for his legal defense.

Ghislaine Maxwell’s Attorneys To Seek New Trial After Juror’s Sexual Abuse Claim

Martin Walsh
January 6, 2022

Ghislaine Maxwell’s lawyers will seek a new trial after a juror told the media that he had been a victim of sexual abuse.

Maxwell was convicted last week of aiding Jeffrey Epstein’s sexual abuses.

In a letter to U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan in Manhattan, who presided over Maxwell’s trial, the lawyer, Christian Everdell, said there were “incontrovertible grounds” for Maxwell to get a new trial.

He called the matter “an issue of pressing importance,” saying disclosures by the juror “influenced the deliberations and convinced other members of the jury to convict Ms. Maxwell.”

“Nathan’s decision on whether a new trial is warranted could hinge on how the juror responded to questions during jury selection about his experiences with sexual abuse, which legal experts said was a key question that defense lawyers were looking at to weed out potentially biased jurors,” Reuters reported.

“The juror, who asked to be identified by his first and middle names, Scotty David, told Reuters on Tuesday evening that during deliberations after some jurors expressed skepticism about the accounts of two of Maxwell’s accusers, he shared his experience of having been sexually abused as a child,” Reuters added.

“When I shared that, they were able to sort of come around on, they were able to come around on the memory aspect of the sexual abuse,” Scotty David, a 35-year-old Manhattan resident, said, referring to other jurors.

Reuters added:

Juror No. 50 was one of the 18 jurors selected on Nov. 29 to serve as a juror or an alternate.

Hundreds of prospective jurors filled out questionnaires that asked them, among other things, if they or their family members had experienced sexual abuse or assault. During follow-up questioning, Nathan asked those who answered “yes” if they would still be able to be fair and impartial.

Scotty David told Reuters he did not recall a question about personal experiences with sexual abuse on the questionnaire, but that he would have answered honestly. He said he “flew through” the questionnaire. He said Nathan did not ask about his personal experience with sexual abuse during follow-up questioning.

During follow-up questioning on Nov. 16, Juror No. 50 told Nathan that he had read a news article and seen a CNN broadcast about Epstein’s death. The juror said he heard that Epstein had a girlfriend, but that he otherwise knew nothing about Maxwell.

When Nathan asked Juror No. 50 if he could put aside anything he read or heard to reach an impartial verdict, he replied, “Yes, absolutely.”

Prosecutors said the juror’s statements to the media “merit attention” by the court and asked for a hearing to be scheduled in about a month.

“Later on Tuesday, The New York Times reported that a second juror described having been sexually abused as a child during deliberations. That juror, who requested anonymity to speak to the Times, said this revelation appeared to help shape the jury’s discussion,” Reuters reported.

Soon after Maxwell was found guilty last week, some argued that she may have a strong argument in her appeal.

The Daily Mail’s Daniel Bates published a report arguing that Maxwell has “four possible grounds for appeal – including the judge’s decision to force the jury to work through New Year’s Eve holiday due to the coronavirus.”

“Lawyers for the former socialite, who is facing 65 years in jail for recruiting and trafficking underage girls for Jeffrey Epstein, could zero in on how Judge Alison Nathan handled the case as they seek to overturn the conviction. Their primary argument will likely be how Judge Nathan ordered the jury to sit every single day of the final week until they reached a verdict,” Bates wrote.

Bates continued:

That would have included New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, even though it falls on a Saturday and is a public holiday, and Sunday as well. Maxwell’s lawyers complained that such instructions were essentially telling the jury they needed to ‘hurry up’. Judge Nathan said that the move was necessary because the ‘astronomical’ numbers of Covid-19 cases fueled by the Omicron variant meant there was a real risk of a ‘mistrial’.

But at the end of that very day the jury came back with their verdict.

Other issues which could be raised on appeal include how Judge Nathan handled a question from the panel about count four – transportation of an individual under the age of 17 with intent to engage in illegal sexual activity – on which Maxwell was convicted.

Maxwell’s lawyers are likely to raise concerns about a jury note related to the accuser Annie Farmer and counts one and three, on which they also found Maxwell guilty. Fourthly, Maxwell’s lawyers could object to how Judge Nathan brusquely handled their request for the US Marshals to force one witness to attend court, a request they ultimately dropped.

“Judge Nathan’s handling of the jury instructions about the coronavirus will undoubtedly feature highly in Maxwell’s appeal,” Bates wrote.

Memory on Trial: Ghislaine Maxwell, Elizabeth Loftus, and the Legal Convenience of False Memory Syndrome

Ryan DeLarme,
January 4th, 2022

“Child abuse has been the most ‘repressed’ idea in the history of psychology”
James Cronin

The Ghislaine Maxwell Trial has provided an uncomfortable peek into a world that exists behind the outward public facade of certain elite social circles. It has presented us with stories of how predators in high places manipulate the young and vulnerable, warping the natural boundaries of what they perceive as acceptable and unacceptable in regards to their sexuality. The Epstein and Maxwell saga has called into question the alleged secret lifestyles of many wealthy and influential people. But what if the accuser’s memories themselves are called into question instead?

Imagine, you’re a British high-society “socialite” and the consort of a wealthy and well-connected financier. Your partner made a name for himself at Bear Stearns in various capacities, eventually starting his own firm and forming a social circle that includes beloved celebrities and world leaders. Despite being fast friends with powerful people, you and your “partner” managed to fly under the radar of the greater public beyond a fluff piece in Vanity Fair.

Now imagine, to your shock, that some woman you’ve never met is accusing your confidant of engaging in sexual acts with her 14-year-old daughter. Soon, there are women coming out of the woodwork accusing him of the same debauched behavior.

Now imagine that dangerous extremists the world over conspire against you on shady internet forums, concocting fantastic stories of how you and your cohort have been providing a honey-pot to gather blackmail on all kinds of people by offering them young women and filming it to ensure that they play ball with the international intelligence apparatus. Your partner in crime dodges all charges against him by accepting a sweetheart deal. A decade goes by and he is arrested again after new accusers emerge, only this time he decides to take his own life while awaiting trial in a New York jail. Now, all the leftover public scorn and malice shifts its focus, unfairly, onto you…

This is the picture that the defense has painted for Ghislaine Maxwell, that she is in fact the real victim in all of this, not the 4 accusers mentioned in the indictment. The defense would have you believe that these selfish accusers are just looking for a handout and have somehow been implanted with false memories by malicious psychotherapists. 

Enter Elizabeth Loftus, a “memory expert” who was called by the defense to testify in the Maxwell trial last week in lower Manhattan. Loftus’s work has made her a figure of acclaim, scrutiny, and even fury. She has authored several books and articles, has appeared on a variety of television programs, including 60 Minutes and Oprah, and was ranked 58th in the Review of General Psychology‘s list of the 100 most influential psychological researchers of the 20th century. Despite her popularity with the media, Loftus’ main gig seems to be acting as a witness and “memory expert” in high-profile trials. She’s appeared in this role for some 300+ trials dating back to the seventies, has been called by the defense to testify in the trials of many household names, including Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, OJ Simpson, and Ted Bundy, to name just a few.

According to Loftus, “Even traumatic experiences can be subjected to post-event suggestion,” and that “False memories … can be very vivid, detailed. People can be confident about them, people can be emotional about them, even though they’re false,”. Maxwell’s attorneys boldly claimed that “This case is about memory, manipulation, and money”. 

The only problem with the false memory defense, which seems to be a hallmark of high profile allegations of sexual misconduct, is that 4 individual accusers somehow being implanted with the same false memory is not only unheard of, it is cartoonishly preposterous. Loftus herself essentially admitted on the stand during cross-examination that her organization has never successfully implanted a false memory, yet many garden variety psychotherapists the world over have somehow mastered this art to exploit the rich and powerful.

Unfortunately, the Ghislaine Maxwell trial isn’t an isolated case. In recent years we’ve seen all manner of celebrity and public officials being outed for sexual abuse or misconduct in one form or another. Luckily, there exist organizations whose mission statement is to shut down allegations of sexual misconduct by labeling the victim’s memories as false, one such organization is the False Memory Syndrome Foundation or FMSF.

The False Memory Syndrome Foundation

The False Memory Syndrome Foundation was a “lay advocacy and lobby group” operating out of an office in Philadelphia and headed by non-clinician Pamela Freyd. The FMSF roused the media through networking and hype to publicize the alleged phenomena as though it were commonplace. 

The FMSF could be seen from at least three different perspectives. Some might see the foundation as academic and essential, some might see its work as a solid defense when faced with sexual abuse allegations, while others (particularly the accusers) see the foundation as military-grade gaslighters who seek to not only hinder the victims healing process by denying them the ability to confront their abusers, but they compound the victim’s trauma by dismissing the memories of abuse as “false”. Their evidence for claiming that delayed memories of abuse are false appears to be mostly based on the denial of the accused, the stories of some retractors, and their interpretation of literature regarding ordinary memory.

The Foundation also has a rather questionable origin and membership. Attorney Sherry Quirk said: 

“… The majority of the members of the False Memory Syndrome Foundation are adults accused of [child] sexual abuse and experts who represent them in court – hardly a source of objective information on the veracity of memories of sexual molestation.”

The explanation they provided for why these memories showed up, to begin with, was due to “pushy psychotherapists”, without expressing the incentive these therapists would have to do something that has yet to be successfully replicated in any kind of actual scientific or medical research setting. Elizabeth Loftus admitted this herself while on the stand during the Ghislaine Maxwell trial.

The frequency of child sexual abuse is much higher than most would believe, it is often thought of as an abhorrent but rare occurrence. As of the early 90s, the most conservative figures at the time estimated that 50 to 80 million people had experienced some form of sexual abuse. Addressing these figures, trauma therapists Judith Herman and Mary Harvey say that:

 “Most abusers are known and trusted people in a position of authority over the child. Many are family members. This abuse is vastly underreported because offenders usually succeed in silencing their victims. Probably less than 10% of child sexual abuse come to the attention of protective agencies or police.

When asked “How do you know you are not representing pedophiles?”, Pamela Freyd gave the following statement:

“We are a good-looking bunch of people: graying hair, well-dressed, healthy, smiling…Just about every person who has attended (our meetings) is someone you would want to count as a friend”.

The late Dr. Charles Whitfield, an accomplished American medical doctor, and expert on childhood trauma, once wrote:

“…….the FMS defense may be the most sophisticated guise of denial of abuse-denial to a level finely honed-that we have yet seen, and it is possible that it will be exposed for what some believe it to be a front for abusers and co-abusers who are unable to take responsibility for having mistreated their children. But groups like VOCAL and the FMSF may nonetheless last for a long time. ”  

  “…….If most accused child sexual abusers and many co-abusers deny having mistreated their alleged victims, then a quick way to appear right and to take the heat off of themselves is to deny the abuse and attack the victim with a term like ‘FMS'” 

   “In my best clinical opinion and that of several experts in the field of recovery from child sexual abuse, it is likely that 92 to 99 percent of survivors are telling the truth  and thus have real memories of having been abused.”

Closing Thoughts

While we certainly would never wish to contribute to a culture of persecution where mere allegations become tantamount to a duly-secured conviction, we must address the numerous issues and conflicts of interest present when a lay organization such as the False Memory Syndrome Foundation appears on the scene, ready to make all sorts of bizarre claims without real evidence, and without real explanation as to the motivation behind said claims. It’s one thing to apply a degree of rational skepticism when assessing any claim or accusation, but the application of said skepticism must go all ways, otherwise, it’s not true skepticism.

When Pamela Freyd told us that they couldn’t possibly be representing pedophiles because they’re “well dressed”, this is as blatant an admission as one can have that she and her illegitimate foundation were NEVER really skeptical — they’ve already decided that they “know” the truth, and they’ve yet to offer anything other than bluster to justify said “knowledge”. Indeed, such a pattern of communication is classic amongst sociopaths and psychopaths — such invalid diversionary conversational tactics do nothing but betray the agenda of their speaker. And the agenda, in this case, appears to be: DON’T LOOK HERE! NOTHING TO SEE HERE FOLKS!

The burden of proof lies with Loftus, the FMSF, VOCAL, and other like-minded groups to demonstrate that they have a valid point. “Trust us, we’re normal folks like you” cannot, and will never suffice.

Judge Delivers Major Setback To Prince Andrew In Lawsuit Filed By Epstein Victim

Now that Ghislaine Maxwell has been found guilty of sex-trafficking charges tied to her work as Jeffrey Epstein’s de facto “madam”, many legal observers expect that she will eventually be sentenced to a lengthy prison stay that could see her die behind bars. But as the world waits for her sentencing, attention is turning once again the civil courts, where Prince Andrew is fighting a high-profile lawsuit filed by Virginia Roberts Guiffre, a prominent Epstein accuser who claims she was trafficked to Andrew when she was still underage.

The lawsuit was filed in the US by a woman who lives in Australia, against a member of the British royal family. Andrew’s name came up during the Maxwell’s trial, when Jeffrey Epstein’s former pilot named names, though he wasn’t officially named by prosecutors.

Now, an American judge has blocked two critical avenues for Prince Andrew to try and get around the lawsuit. Here’s more from the Guardian:

Two of Prince Andrew’s avenues to prevent or stall the progression of Virginia Roberts Giuffre’s sex assault lawsuit against him were blocked on Saturday by a federal judge, increasing pressure to settle claims before a crucial court hearing this week.

Judge Lewis A Kaplan, in a written order, told the prince’s lawyers they must turn over documents on the schedule that has been set in the lawsuit brought by Guiffre who claims she was abused – aged 17 – by the prince on multiple occasions in 2001 while she was being sexually abused by financier Jeffrey Epstein.

The judge’s decision comes ahead of a critical hearing in the case that’s set for Tuesday. Also, the details of a 2009 settlement agreement between the now-deceased Epstein and Giuffre that lawyers for Prince Andrew had hoped would protect him from Guiffre’s claims are expected to be released on Monday. Among other things, the judge will decide Tuesday whether Giuffre’s claims against the Prince are solid enough to merit a trial. All of this could greatly increase pressure on the Prince’s lawyers to settle.

Giuffre’s lawyers have claimed that they have up to six witnesses linking the Duke to his accuser on the eve of the hearing into the civil lawsuit.

In another document, Andrew’s lawyers acknowledged that they couldn’t provide documentary evidence that he has the “inability to sweat”, one of the defenses employed by Prince Andrew to try and discredit Guiffre (although the reaction to the claim in the press was one of abject dismissal).

Meanwhile, on Saturday, it was revealed that David Boies, a lawyer for Giuffre, had said that Ghislaine Maxwell should have “cut a deal” – the latest indication that Maxwell had the opportunity to turn states’ witness against other high-profile individuals in Epstein’s circle, a group that includes former President Bill Clinton as well as Prince Andrew.

“I have said publicly for five years that she was making a mistake in not going in and trying to cut a deal with prosecutors. She could have cut a very good deal early on but she passed up that opportunity. I think that’s proven to be a fatal mistake,” Boies reportedly said.

See the judge’s official dismissal below:

Prosecutors Quietly Dropped Case Against Epstein Jail Guards During Ghislaine Maxwell Trial

While Ghislaine Maxwell stood trial for her part in Jeffrey Epstein’s underage sex-trafficking operation, federal prosecutors quietly dropped their case against two jail guards who allegedly ‘slept on the job’ while the wealthy pedophile killed himself – or was murdered, depending on who you believe, or whether one has common sense.

On December 13, federal prosecutors in Manhattan signed a nolle prosequi, a document indicating to the judge that they wish to drop the case, according to Insider. The filing didn’t appear on the court’s public docket until Thursday, more than two weeks later, and one day after Maxwell was convicted for sex-trafficking girls to Epstein to be sexually abused.

The guards, Tova Noel and Michael Thomas were arrested charged in November 2019. According to the original complaint, they two had fallen asleep, browsed news feeds, and shopped for motorcycles and furniture (with unexpected income, perhaps?), instead of performing their rounds at the Metropolitan Correctional Center. They were also charged with falsifying documents and conspiracy to defraud the US.

Did we mention that prison surveillance footage of the alleged suicide disappearedYes, we did.

Did we mention that Epstein had reportedly been in ‘good spirits‘ right before his suicide – meeting with his lawyers for up to 12 hours a day to discuss his case? Yes, we did.

Epstein, or a homeless guy in an Epstein mask, was found dead in his cell on the morning of August 10, 2019. While the NY City head coroner ruled it a suicide, Epstein’s brother hired a private coroner who ruled that the financier’s broken neck bones were more consistent with a homicide.

Noel and Thomas pleaded not guilty to the charges against them for falsifying records. In May this year, they entered a deferred prosecution agreement where prosecutors agreed not to bring the guards’ case to trial until after they finished cooperating with an investigation into the circumstances of Epstein’s death with the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General. The OIG has yet to release a report in connection with the investigation.

A public status conference for the case against Noel and Thomas had been scheduled for December 16, but was canceled on December 15 without explanation, or scheduling of a future meeting. -Insider

According to the December 13 filing, Noel and Thomas had complied with the terms of their non-prosecution agreement and completed community service.

Bill Clinton Trends On Twitter After Maxwell Found Guilty On 5 Of 6 Charges

Soon after British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell was found guilty on Wednesday, former President Bill Clinton was trending on Twitter.

Maxwell was found guilty by a jury of helping the late financier Jeffrey Epstein sexually abuse teenage girls.

“Maxwell was accused of recruiting and grooming four teenagers between 1994 and 2004 for Epstein, her former boyfriend, who killed himself in 2019 in a Manhattan jail cell while awaiting trial on sex abuse charges of his own. She was convicted on five of six counts, including one count of sex trafficking. Lawyers for Maxwell, who faces up to 65 years in prison, vowed to appeal,” Reuters reported.

“During the month-long trial, jurors heard emotional and explicit testimony from four women who portrayed Maxwell as central to their abuse by Epstein. Three of the four said Maxwell herself touched their bare breasts or took part in the encounters, which often began as massages. Maxwell’s attorneys sought to undermine the women’s credibility, arguing that they were motivated by money to implicate Maxwell since all four had received million-dollar awards from a compensation fund for Epstein’s victims,” the report added.

“Maxwell will return to Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC), where she has been held in isolation since July 2020. Maxwell has voiced concerns about her treatment at the jail, asserting that guards have disrupted her sleep at night and that the stench of raw sewage has permeated her cell,” the report continued.

Not long after the verdict, Bill Clinton trended on Twitter because of his relationship with Epstein and Maxwell.

Clinton can’t escape from his relationship with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Clinton has been dogged by his association with Epstein, who gained access to a collection of powerful men including politicians, business moguls, and even British royalty.

These figures were lured into a spider’s web of blackmail over visits to his steamy Caribbean island and trips on his private plane, dubbed the Lolita Express.

Now, more damning evidence of Clinton’s friendship with Epstein has emerged after a British tabloid published pictures of the disgraced philanthropist sex trafficker and his madame schmoozing with Clinton while he was in the White House.

The two were invited to the White House as VIP guests of the then-sitting president as attendees of a party thrown for high rollers who donated money for the refurbishment of the Oval Office in 1993.

Maxwell and Epstein were given a personal tour of “Clinton’s residence and the East Room during a reception,” a glimpse at how early that Clinton became intertwined with Epstein.
