Acosta, Clinton and Epstein
[Comments enabled]

There is a price for sitting on your ass while cheering on the fraud-laced economic structure we've built over the last three-plus decades, and it's on display in a form and fashion that is utterly outrageous -- and indefensible.

A judge ruled Thursday that federal prosecutors — among them, U.S. Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta — broke federal law when they signed a plea agreement with a wealthy, politically connected sex trafficker and concealed it from more than 30 of his underage victims.

U.S. District Judge Kenneth A. Marra, in a 33-page opinion, said that the evidence he reviewed showed that Jeffrey Epstein had been operating an international sex operation in which he and others recruited underage girls — not only in Florida — but from overseas, in violation of federal law.

“Epstein used paid employees to find and bring minor girls to him.,’’ wrote Marra, who is based in Palm Beach County. “Epstein worked in concert with others to obtain minors not only for his own sexual gratification, but also for the sexual gratification of others.’’

Notice how nobody cared to chase this during the Bush Administration -- after Clinton was in office?

Or during the Obama Administration?

It was only when Acosta -- who was one of the architects of the scam -- was appointed to Trump's cabinet that suddenly this gained interest and, finally, after all these years, a ruling.

Oh, and who was the director of the FBI at the time all this took place?  Care to take a guess?  Why isn't he under attack -- or even indictment -- for failing to make damn sure Epstein went to federal prison?  Gee, I wonder why not......

There were over 100 girls that were sexually assaulted in various forms -- many outright raped -- in the years beginning around 2001 and continuing on through the final years of the Bush Administration in 2007 when Epstein was "allowed" to plead to a prostitution charge and got less than a year.

None of the people involved in grooming and finding the young girls -- now women -- he abused were charged or went to prison.

None of the other rich and powerful people -- and there were many -- were charged or went to prison.

The entire deal was sealed so nobody could find or use it to sue this rich son-of-a-bitch either, nor sue any of the myriad other rich and powerful people who were on his "Lolita Express" private jet flights.

This is what we all get for our deference to political parties -- for fawning over Black Jesus both in 2008 through to today, for the same aimed at Bill Clinton, for I'm With Her in 2016 and more.  It is only the hatred of the left for Donald Trump and his "theft", as they see it, of Hillary's "rightful" possession of the Oval Office that has led to the renewed look at this case and only because Mr. Acosta was nominated to Trump's Cabinet -- leaving behind the head of the FBI who has not gotten similarly attacked even though he was at least equally to blame for allowing that crap deal to be made.  After all, he was the "boss".

The price of this nation sitting on its ass and genuflecting to both the Clintons and Barry is the apparent rape of over 100 underage girls -- and not just singular rape either, but trafficking those girls to rich and powerful men worldwide including politicians and perhaps even royalty literally all over the globe.

It could have been your daughter on that list of victims.

For many families it was their daughter.

Take a bow, America.  The very same fawning fealty shown to the Clintons despite myriad scams and scandals, reaching all the way to their time in Arkansas and continuing to the present day, including selling out American interests to actual Russians, gross and outrageous violations of the law with regard to classified data, gross and outrageous violations of FCPA (that is, what facially appears to be foreign bribery), your allowance of the "chosen daughter" to get away with her bullshit and excuses for her parents along with the nauseating and repeated genuflection to Black Jesus and his wife that continues to this day both personally and politically went so far that the sexual trafficking, assault and rape of over 100 underage girls was not only tolerated it remains tolerated and judicially buried to this day and the people who perpetrated and covered it up remain free.

Oh, and by the way, who still believes that the entire point behind this entire scheme wasn't to control every single one of the people who were involved in it by blackmailing them to do -- or not do -- whatever certain people wanted both at the time and forever into the future -- and that said blackmail and control continues to this day?  You have to be a special brand of stupid to not realize the truth of this matter and rise up and demand that crap both stop instantly and that everyone involved go to prison right here and now. Then again I suppose I should not be shocked that hasn't happen and won't as this is the land of Boobus Americanus.
