Project Veritas Publishes Leaked Hot Tape of ABC Reporter Saying She Had "Everything" on Epstein Story For Three Years But Network Kept Killing It And Telling Her "Nobody Knows Who Epstein Is, This Story is Stupid"

In related news:

epsteindrinkshisovaltine

That's now a popular meme. Here's me denouncing it, as the left commands:

...

...

...

Whoops I seem to be all out of denouncements. I guess maybe the leftwing media and their NeverTrump Spirit Squad should try patrolling the left (imagine that, NeverTrump -- patroling the left's language!) for a change and denouncing their RUSSIAN BOT fake news and dangerous memes, and then maybe get back to us about denouncing this one.

You can't be sure. Epstein gained his money the old fashioned way: He extorted it.

He extorted a lot of money from a lot of people--which just indicates how many rich and powerful sickos there are out there.

155 I find the fascinating thing about the Epstein meme is that it's crossing political boundaries.

I'm starting to wonder if the path to the leftist heart isn't through their distrust of the police.

It's not a very large gap for the spark to cross between not trusting the police and not trusting the rest of the government, and that maybe an authoritarian state might come after you for wrongthink someday.

Yes. Epstein had all those VIP from around the globe on his island, partying it up with the young people/fetishes they prefer, and there were not side deals made? Think it was more of a networking vehicle (and his own vice) than the whole business.

Many foreigners, mostly Indians, have descended on my hometown of Ashburn, VA and they have been voting democrats. Today I saw a squad of diaper-head women and young Indians handing out D SBs. They are an army going house to house for 2 whole months. They always seem surprised that an Asian girl tells them I vote Republican only. They're very polite though.The Rs never came to my house.

It does expose that ABC covered up the story and was pressured to cover up the story.

The "bombshell" is how the Epstein story was covered up 3 years ago, with the implication that Robach has a lot more detail/evidence from the girl she interviewed, that would likely be a bigger bombshell. She mentioned photos and other records backing up the woman's story.

Think of it as the Weinstein story. The first part was what Weinstein was doing for years, and the second part is that he got any news about this killed, so that he could go on doing this for years. PV is setting its sights on ABC in the same way Ronan Farrow is aiming at NBC leadership who killed his story.

Zombie, the movie usually runs all day on Christmas day on...TNT? Can't remember the station. But it's a movie from '83 or '84 that's set in the 40s and has this kid, Ralphie, whose only goal is to get Santa to bring him a Red Ryder BB gun. My dad, born in the 30s, loves the movie because it harkens back to his childhood. I, personally, love it because it's cute and funny. YMMV

372 Anyone who reads John LeCarre novels or books reporting on real intelligence coups quickly comes to recognize that intel operations are basically amoral which can rapidly deteriorate into immoral ops for odious purposes.

Honey traps, assassins, terrorism, blackmail, bribery, dirtying folks by smears that intelligence agencies cannot coopt, pliable journalists, and moving funds around surreptitiously are the stock in trade of the intelligence agencies. To do these things, they always need plausible deniability so that the core of the operations and institution remain so vital to national security that investigation into intel agency dirty ops have to be suppressed.

One of the techniques used is interagency "cooperation" between nations with criss cross techniques so a country spies on the citizens of another nation and exchange the data in return for that country spying on the first country's citizens. The technology for doing this is better now due to our digital world. Read up on how the Brits in WWII used code name Cynthia against a U.S. Senator who all of a sudden wanted to play ball with FDR's foreign policy. Leaders of a country often exchange such favors to control their internal political rivals. I suspect that is why Renzi is sweating bullets as are the Italian security agencies which apparently made Mifsud suddenly surface.

Not surprisingly, politicians are both the hunters (because they want intelligence on their political rivals as well as foreign adversaries) and the hunted (these folks if captured can be managed as an asset) by these folks. All the various data that people are required to give to all sorts of people and the U.S. government is easily acquired by the nat-sec. apparatus in the U.S. and this information gives the IC folks power to set up vectors of control if need be. Those with money needs can be given "consultant" fees or other make work jobs. Those who want sex, they set up with sex, etc. until the bait is taken by the fish. Then they have you.

The Americans during WWII were naive and the Brits taught them a thing or two about spycraft including managing worldwide deception operations (see Bodyguard of Lies by Anthony Cave Brown for a discussion of strategic deception operations during WWII). There is a strong resemblance to these operations to what Brennan tried to do to Trump supporters. Due to the penetration of British intelligence by Soviet agents, the same deadly techniques were exported to the NKVD/KGB/FSS for use in the Cold War.

The Brits use their status as a financial hub to cover a lot of intelligence and I suspect that the CIA does the same with the NY financial activity with a lot of horse trading of intel for dollars going on there.

383 Read the sidebar article about The Expert (well, he's an expert on cheesecake, processed treats, and fried food, anyway).

Tom Nichols, making a highly expert miscalculation:

"The bright spot here is that this is not 'Civil War 2.0' or a fascist movement. That would require commitment and bravery from the Trumpist inner circle. They are led by a cowardly man and they are cowards themselves. The rank and file are groupies, not activists.

There is no mass movement party here, no hard central corps of true believers who will advance the cause, because there is no 'cause.' Trumpism is about people who watch too much TV."

He really thinks this is true and accurate, I believe.

"Epstein belongs to Intelligence."

Epstein found the perfect business-model for paedo. He got himself an island and an aeroplane and a few other hidey-holes, collected a bunch of kids, broke them in, and rented them out to whoever. He sold that information to intelligence agencies like Mossad, MI5/6 (I forget which is which, don't really care), and the American 3LAs. He made himself too useful to everyone, for anyone to stop him.

Ah, the "Christmas Gambit." Set a movie with nothing to do with Christmas at Christmastime and hope people don't notice.

"Home Alone" is considered a great Christmas movie but it has nothing to do with Christmas, other than the holiday is an excuse for the vacation that sets off the story.

"Die Hard" is somehow more of a Christmas movie than "Home Alone" - at least it has a Christmas party as an actual story element.

439 Most of the Indians in this area are all SJW scumbags and guaranteed votes for the Despot Party. They're trying to obfuscate our Constitution and undermine American values because they want to correct the ills of that shithole they came from. If they want to do that, they should take the reverse trip and GTFO. There are a few exceptions. My one Indian neighbor is pro Trump and says he represents everything he left his birth country for. I took him and a few of his chirch friends to the range to learn how to shoot a pistol

I think a lot of people here are in the "mainstream America" bubble, which may not seem like a bubble to those inside it, as it is a very large bubble, but it is indeed a bubble. If one is inside it, one assumes that EVERYONE is also inside it -- but a significant percentage of people are/were not.

444 Never even heard of it.



This must be a very specific cultural meme appealing to a very
specific age group in a very specific social class. Say, middle-class
white Americans born between 1968 and 1975. If one is not in that
demographic, one has never heard of "A Christmas Story" and thus would
not understand the meme.

445 Now that surprises me - for 10 or 15 years running, TNT ran "A Christmas Story" on a 24 hour loop starting Christmas Eve, ending Christmas night. I remember getting some nice dinners together and watching that movie 2 or 3 times back to back just for that reason. All told, I'd say I've seen it enough times to have the entire script memorized.
Posted by: Tom Servo


This is crazy. It's like we live in alternate universes. Until this thread, I have never even heard of the existence of this movie.

I thought, from the title, that it was some reboot of the Dickens book "A Christmas Carol" or something. Apparently not.

Posted by: Mr. Peebles at November 05, 2019 12:48 PM (oVJmc)


Actually, that was far, far earlier as a saying. In fact, I had a .22 rifle before my folks let me have a bb gun for that reason. Because we'd shoot at each other withe bb guns. And we did. And, Rod Lundquist lost his eye from a bb gun. But, the eyepatch, that awesome, amazing eyepatch wasn't a deterrent. At all. I don't need to tell you it was a chick magnet when we got into high school.

Just like "you'll blow off a finger" with fireworks. And yes, one of the neighbor kids blew a finger clean off playing with them (this was the early 60's after all). Safe and Sane!

462 Ummm...my folks were born and raised in Chicago.

Even there, interracial marriage was frowned upon in the 40s-50s.
My mixed butt would have had a hard time going, even in the midwest of the 30s-40s.

I was referring to the so-called "Jim Crow Laws", which were a very specific thing in the Southern states up until the 50's. But there was a huge migration of blacks from the Southern States to the northern, midwestern manufacturing hubs like Chicago and Detroit during that time precisely because those area did NOT have those laws.

Even the laws against mixed marriages were mostly confined to the States of the old Confederacy and some western states. It may not have been widely accepted in "polite society", but it was not illegal in the north.

I've never sat through Christmas Story for an entire viewing. HOWEVER, I do know the significant moments: the kid getting his tongue stuck on the pole, the bb gun, the leg lamp, Darrin McGavin...
I just absorbed it through osmosis I think.

Exactly.

My parents were both beatniks/bohemians, and as a result my childhood experience is very unlike most people's, even people the same age in the same area. Not having a TV growing up I think is a major factor. I only ever saw TV at other kids' houses. Then when I grew up I had never developed the TV habit, so never got one even when I lived on my own.

473 431, That is the problem with cosmopolitanism is ultimately they only have personal or ideological loyalties rather than to the nation. The notorious gang of Four Soviet spies in Brit intel were more loyal to their college era commie buddies than they were to the nation they served.

The Americans had the same problem except many agents of influence were in the executive departments of FDR--Treasury, State, presidential counselors, the OSS, etc. American atomic spies actually had the engineering data that was passed to the Sovs while Fuchs was more of a theory guy.

Arguably, their damage might have been worse than the Gang of Four as Britain's power and empire curtailed the Brit's reach to some extent but American influence was expanding to take its place.

The Americans were naive in that the U.S., outside of military intelligence which had a fairly narrow focus officially, did not really anticipate becoming the hegemon of the West. There was a relatively small analysis section of the State Dept. for its purposes.

Thus, the institution of the OSS and its successor CIA would only have been created for a mortal threat to the nation such as WWII and then to fight the Communists in the Cold War. The Brits had been at it for centuries along with other Euro nations. Thus, the Brits taught the U.S. how to run world wide ops having both the experience and information networks developed to do so. The U.S., by and large with Brit blessing, took on that job post war.

Might be more expensive in direct terms, but might not a Private Adoption from overseas bypass all the State Bureaucracy, and get the job done for you without undue delay?

As I understand it, Russia has shut down all adoptions to the USA, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Reports were that they were sending over some seriously disturbed kids as adoptees, just to rid themselves of the problems.

But right about now, I'm thinking you could score at least one, and maybe two Ukrainian kids. Ukraine is desperately trying to salvage their standing with Trump, and will likely do anything to keep us Americans happy.

And if you get just the right kid, he might already be pulling down a $50k/month salary as a Member of the Board.
