Ivana Trump Recruited Schoolgirls For Epstein?

Jeffrey Epstein and Ivana Trump

Whitney Webb, an independent journalist best known for her work trying to expose Jeffrey Epstein’s child sex enterprise, recently made some very explosive allegations in a YouTube interview chief among them, that Trump’s ex wife Ivana trump (Ivanka’s mother) worked with Ghislaine Maxwell to recruit underage school girls in the New York area into Epstein’s child sex operation. This and other explosive allegations in the YouTube interview are based on a phone call Whitney Webb recently had with Maria Farmer, one of Epstein’s victims in the 1990s.

Webb specifically said regarding Ivana Trump(video at 4:40); “When she[Maria Farmer] told the FBI in 1996, she said the Clintons were part of it. She also said Donald Trump was part of it. One of the reasons she said that is because Ivana Trump, she said, was with Ghislaine Maxwell when she would go out to recruit girls for Epstein. It was her[Ghislaine] and Ivana Trump, Trump’s ex wife. They would go out together all the time and pick up these 12 year old girls in school uniforms and braces, exchange information with them and the next day they would be in Epstein’s office. She[Farmer] saw between 5 and 10 different girls every day go into Epstein’s office the whole two years she was there. Every day. This is in the 90s. So much of what we know from the other victims is after 2000. The FBI knew this then and they didn’t act and that’s why all those other victims exist. It’s just disgusting.”

Some of the bombshell allegations Whitney Webb makes in this interview are already fairly well circulated among the general public so Yours Truly will just mention them in passing while focusing more on the “new” and frankly more interesting bombshells (Ivana Trump being one of them). Whitney Webb for example says the Clintons were implicated and that the FBI covered up Epstein’s illicit conduct in the 1990s, claims that have been made repeatedly ever since the Epstein scandal broke.

Another interesting bombshell Whitney Webb dropped on the interview is that Victoria’s Secret’s Leslie Wexner and his wife Abigail were the masterminds behind Epstein’s child sex trafficking operation(see video at 8:00). According to Webb, young school girls would be lured into Epstein’s operation under the guise that they were being groomed to be Victoria’s Secret Models. If true, the billionaire Wexners could face very serious criminal conspiracy charges.

As for Vicky Ward, the journalist much celebrated for her Epstein pieces most notably her 2003 Vanity Fair piece, Whitney Webb says not so fast(see video at 12:00). According to Webb, Maria Farmer gave Vicky Ward details about Epstein’s child sex trafficking operation but Ward left them out of her bombshell Vanity Fair piece. As if that was not enough, Ward who was apparently an acquaintance of Ghislaine Maxwell, told Ghislaine that Maria Farmer talked to the FBI about her—essentially ratted out her source. Vicky Ward endangered Maria Farmer’s life so much that she went into hiding. Farmer apparently referred to Vicky Ward as a “monster”, according to Whitney Webb.

Farmer also told Whitney Webb that she fears some of the children involved in Epstein’s Florida operation may have been killed because out of some 500 children only about 30 of them came forward and the rest cannot be found(video at 21:30). She added that some of these children were really young(pre-teen). Importantly, Farmer said that Epstein’s legal team which included Alan Dershowitz, knew all the names of the missing children .

Whitney Webb also talked about a January 2001 article on the Evening Standard (U.K) that has since been scrapped from the internet, which said Epstein’s money came from his business links to three people–Leslie Wexner, Donald Trump and Bill Gates. Webb argues that nobody pushed back on this article(by one Nigel Russert) because back then(2001), Epstein was not a controversial figure(see video at 35:30). Webb also slammed as a total lie New York Times’ recent reporting that Bill Gates first met Epstein in 2011.

Farmer also told Webb that Epstein and people in his circle were extreme White Supremacists and she regularly overheard them speaking about other races, especially Blacks, in the most disgusting way(see video at 37:25). She said Epstein and his pals refused to go anywhere they thought there would be too many people of African descent.

Webb concluded by tying the entire Epstein scandal into a global intelligence operation involving Israel which Yours Truly will deliberately ignore because we will never get to the bottom of it(managing expectations). There are however some bombshell allegations that we could easily get answers to for example, whether Ivana Trump really helped Ghislaine Maxwell recruit young girls for Epstein, the missing 500 children who Dershowitz allegedly knows about, whether Vicky Ward(now at CNN) really ratted out Maria Farmer to Ghislaine Maxwell, whether Bill Gates knew Epstein in 2001 as opposed to 2011, whether Trump financed Epstein(another excuse for his tax returns), the Wexners’ involvement with Epstein, why the mainstream media refuses to act on stories by Maria Farmer and others, just to mention but a few.

Bottom line folks, as Yours Truly has repeatedly stated regarding Epstein’s stories, sunlight is the best disinfectant. It appears the more efforts are made to cover up Epstein’s child sex trafficking operation, the more bombshell revelations come up, the latest clearly being Ivana Trump. It will be interesting to hear what Ivana Trump says regarding these troubling allegations, assuming the mainstream media will be courageous enough to ask her. What will CNN do with Vicky Ward given the troubling revelations about her? Hmm–as Trump famously says, “We’ll see what happens.”

Barr’s DOJ Refuses To Release Notes Of Kushner’s Interview With Mueller

A federal judge recently granted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed by CNN and Buzzfeed and ordered the Justice Department to release documents currently in its possession related to the now concluded investigation into Russian election interference in 2016 (Mueller probe)

Among the documents media houses CNN and Buzzfeed are most interested in, are the notes from the various interviews Mueller conducted with witnesses–known in legal circles as “302 notes”. Needless to say, such notes can be very important in determining whether a particular witness lied to/misled/withheld material information from investigators.

Ever since the federal judge granted CNN and Buzzfeed’s FOIA request, Barr’s DOJ has largely complied and released several 302 notes. Conspiquously absent from the 302 notes however, are those related to Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner–a prime target of CNN and Buzzfeed’s FOIA request.

Equally troubling is the fact that Barr’s DOJ is yet to provide the legal justification for its refusal to comply with the federal judge’s order on 302 notes related to Jared Kushner. Is there something very bad in Kushner’s 302 notes that Barr’s DOJ is so intent on keeping away from the public even if that means violating a federal judge’s order?

Bottom line folks, it is now quite evident that AG Barr considers his position as one intended primarily to protect/defend President Trump and his family. Where, as here, his Justice Dept refuses to release 302 notes related to Trump’s son-in-law Kushner, and giving no legal justification for the refusal, a reasonable inference can be made that AG Barr is hiding from the public Kushner’s 302 notes because they contain information he thinks will cast Trump and his family in negative light. Congressional Democrats and the mainstream media must demand that DOJ comply with the federal judge’s order and release Kushner’s 302 notes.

Liz Warren;”Fox News Is A Hate-For-Profit Racket”

Presidential candidate and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has thrown down the gauntlet on Fox News calling the network a “hate-for-profit racket”. This stems from a squabble the Dem Senator has been having with the conservative news network after she recently declined their invitation to appear for a town hall at the network. Sen Warren initially slammed Fox News saying it is an illegitimate news network that hires a few credible journalists to make it palatable to sponsors. In essence, Sen Warren argued that she didn’t want to give Fox News undeserved credibility by participating in its town hall. It’s important to point out that other Democratic Presidential candidates have participated in Fox News’ town halls.

Sen Warren said about Fox News, “Fox News is a hate-for-profit racket. It’s a racket. And much of America is starting to catch up to them, and that means that they are losing right now, sponsors. This is all about money. They lose sponsors because sponsors don’t want to be associated with the hate. I will find many ways to reach out. I will talk to Fox News reporters, but what I’m not going to do is give them a full hour of my time so they can raise money and raise credibility off it.”

It is not hard to argue with Sen Warren’s reasoning especially if you consider one of the leading lights at Fox News Jeanine Pirro, who has arguably made some of the most hateful and divisive comments ever made by a national news anchor. Jeanine Pirro, a former Judge if you can believe it, was suspended for this hateful rant against a sitting U.S. Congresswoman

Naturally the Warren-Fox News tussle has received a lot of mainstream media coverage, and deservedly so. However, lost in the mainstream media noise is the central argument Sen Warren set out to make–that Fox News is not a legitimate news network. The question as to whether Fox News is a legitimate news network is a very important question if one is to give a fair hearing to Sen Warren’s concerns. Yours Truly has raised this very question in a previous post about the obscene Trump-Fox News affair.

Bottom line, Yours Truly will not fault the mainstream media for covering the fact that Sen Warren will not participate in Fox News town halls because it is a valid news story. However Yours Truly takes great issue with the fact that some in the mainstream media are quick to attack Sen Warren’s Fox News stance without addressing her core argument that Fox News is not a legitimate news network. Reasonable people will agree that if Fox News is not a legitimate news network, then Sen Warren or any other Democratic candidate for that matter, should not be faulted for refusing to participate in the network’s charade.

Melania’s Spox Says Trump’s Behavior Doesn’t Affect “Be Best” Campaign

In case you missed it, Melania Trump’s Spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham just did an interview on CNN where the host Christi Paul asked her about President Trump’s behavior vis-a-vis Melania’s “Be Best” campaign. Grisham gave one of the most ridiculous explanations I’ve ever heard on TV to which host Christi Paul shockingly never pushed back on/inquired further into.

CNN Host:How does she[Melania] balance her platform[“Be Best”] against some of the things that he[Trump] does?

Grisham: “I think that honestly one thing doesn’t have anything to do with the other, and she is focused on helping children. She has said many times that her husband is an adult, he is the President of the United States and he knows what he is doing, and she’s focused on “Be Best”, she’s focused on helping children, children are the ones who are impressionable right now and so she’s going to go out there and do the best that she can to help them succeed.”

The only way to interpret Stephanie Grisham’s explanation is that even though American children are impressionable, they never look up to the President of the United States, which as I said earlier is a totally bogus explanation that host Christi Paul should have vigorously pushed back on.

Bottom line Trump’s troubling behavior as President has serious ramifications up to and including its corrosive effect on our children. Where, as here, a mainstream media host gets an opportunity to raise that issue, it is only proper that they fully explore it–ask follow-up questions and push back when necessary. Even though Christi Paul is ordinarily a great host(among my CNN faves), she failed miserably on this Stephanie Grisham interview–sorry Christi.

Board Member At CBS Drafted Kathy Griffin An Apology Letter To Trump



A bombshell revelation that an executive at CBS, one Arnold Kopelson drafted an apology letter for Kathy Griffin to send to Trump in order to save her media career has reignited the debate about Trump’s grip on the mainstream media.

After Trump’s upset victory in the 2016 elections, many liberals(fairly or unfairly) pinned the blame on the mainstream media which they accused of “creating Trump” with their constant coverage of his campaign rallies. Up until now however, the “creating Trump” accusation has been just that, an accusation(no concrete proof). This revelation however that a CBS executive asked Kathy Griffin to send an apology letter to Trump in order to save her career, certainly raises serious questions as to just how much grip Trump has on the mainstream media heads.

Many liberals, the loudest being Rosie O’Donnell, have lashed out at the mainstream media for what they perceive as an enabling, even abetting attitude towards Trump. Stories that would have made headline news and possibly even sunk previous administrations somehow never get the coverage they deserve. One such seriously under-reported story, which Yours Truly highlighted recently is Melania Trump’s Senior Adviser and personal friend Stephanie Wolkoff receiving $26 million from Trump’s inaugural funds. Under any other administration this would have been major “Breaking News” by all the major networks(CBS, ABC, NBC) but strangely, not so with the Trump administration.


Now that we have an executive at CBS who believes a Trump critic (Kathy Griffin) needs to send an apology letter to Trump in order to save her media career, serious questions need to be asked as to what else they(networks) are willing to do/or not do to placate Trump. Do they for example bury “bad” stories about Trump to make him happy? These are not hypothetical radical left-wing questions anymore and CBS needs to fully address them.

Bottom line there needs to be further discussion about this bombshell revelation that a CBS board member felt Kathy Griffin should send an apology letter to Trump in order to save her career. Mainstream media has a lot of “splainin” to do. The silver lining?–Yours Truly is slowly but surely filling the void created by the hapless mainstream media. What MSM refuses to cover, we most certainly will!!

Medicaid Expansion Key To Dems Winning State Houses

Folks Yours Truly readily admits that this week the Mainstream Media has done very well highlighting two issues that are very important to grassroots democrats across the country–voting machine security and the fight to save Medicare/Medicaid in the states


After bashing the Mainstream Media for weeks on end about their inexplicable silence regarding voting machine security in an election year, it was a pleasant surprise to see a report on Reuters addressing similar concerns. Hopefully MSM will continue reporting on this issue of great concern especially in Texas, where Dems are finally poised to make Historic electoral gains but are confronted with the sad reality of unverifiable voting machines in the Trump-Putin era. In years past fears about unverifiable voting machines would be shunned as conspiracy theorist talk. Grassroots Dems however are aware of just how real these fears are in the age of Trump and are desperate for more media coverage on this issue, not less.

Another big grassroots Dem story by the MSM this week was the Medicare expandion vote by the Virginia legislature that was largely pushed by the newly elected state Democrats. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow hosted one of the Virginia state Democrats, Danica Roem, who was instrumental in the Medicare expansion push


The Virginia case is a classic example of why Dems need to wage the Medicare/Medicaid war in the states. As Maddow pointed out in the segment, the Dem electoral sweep in Virginia was largely because they campaigned on restoring healthcare to a public that is increasingly witnessing GOP efforts to take away their healthcare. In other words Medicare/Medicaid is a winning issue for Dems in the states

As Yours Truly has repeatedly stated, the fight for Medicare/Medicaid and Social Security are very important to grassroots Dems and could reap huge harvests in state legislatures. Democrats could literally recapture a huge chunk of the state legislatures they have lost to the GOP in recent years if they campaign hard on the theme that Republicans are out to take away people’s Medicare/Medicaid.

To be clear, Yours Truly’s argument has been that the Koch Brothers/ALEC funded clamor for a Constitutional Convention(ConCon) by state GOP politicians is aimed ultimately at the elimination of Medicare/Medicaid because they are the biggest driver of the national debt.


There is a lot of proof out there supporting this argument but you’ll never hear that from the Mainstream Media probably because it is still considered a “radical” argument because its main pusher, Yours Truly is regarded by the MSM as a “radical leftist”. But the proof is staring the Mainstream Media in their faces if they cared to look. Consider for instance, Virginia GOP’s pushback argument to the Medicare expansion move by the Democrats. Virginia’s GOP Senate Majority Leader opposed the Medicare expansion move because it “abandons Virginia’s long-standing reputation for fiscal responsibility.”–the quintessential balanced budget amendment argument behind GOP’s Constitutional Convention effort.

Bottom line folks we still have a lot of pushing to do to get the Mainstream Media to talk about issues near and dear to grassroots Dems. However where, as here, they show a slight improvement we have to give them partial credit. The ideal situation(worthy of full credit) would be for Mainstream Media to “go there” and say boldly like Yours Truly that the ultimate goal of the Constitutional Convention push by state Republicans is the elimination of Medicare/Medicaid because they believe these programs are huge drivers of both the national and state government debt. Let us hope from now until midterms 2018 the Mainstream Media sticks with issues important to grassroots Dems like voting machine security and the NoConCon war as opposed to say, “c*unt” talk

Same Mainstrean Media That Gave Us Trump Is About To Give GOP A Midterms 2018 Win

After the 2016 elections exposed how vulnerable our election systems were to cyberattacks, New Jersey, like many other U.S. states began mulling ways to improve the security of its election infrastructure. While still mulling what changes to make to their election systems, the Center for American Progress dropped a bombshell on the Garden state, giving it a lowly D-grade for its voting machine security.



Stung by the embarrassing D-grade evaluation, NJ state lawmakers felt compelled to do something, and they have. A new NJ bill A3991, the "New Jersey Secure Elections Act" seeks to do just that, replace the state's paperless voting system with one that leaves an auditable paper trail

As shocking as it sounds, even after Russian meddling in 2016, many states especially where the GOP controls the legislature still use electronic voting machines that cannot be credibly audited in case of disputed results. Texas is one such example.

While NJ should be commended for taking a concrete step forward in securing the vote, it is the shocking testimony of one of the state's leading Computer Scientists, Professor Andrew Appel that has caught Yours Truly's attention and should catch yours too.

In his testimony about voting machine security, Princeton University Computer Science Professor said paperless electronic voting machines are "fatally flawed technology." Turns out Professor Appel is so sure about his assertion he has even demonstrated how to hack a New Jersey voting machine.

Now if these were conclusory allegations by some random loud mouth in #TheResistance the lack of coverage by the Mainstream Media would be understandable. However given that this bombshell assertion is being made by a highly respected Ivy League scholar(Princeton is Super Ivy League) the lack of coverage by the Mainstream Media has to be called into question.

How can the world's leading democracy be conducting elections using "fatally flawed" voting machines and the Media remain relatively silent about it? To its credit Fox News did do a segment on Professor Appel. That however is not nearly enough Media coverage for such a consequential story--especially in an election year.

A charge has been levelled, and Yours Truly concurs, that it is the Mainstream Media that gave us Trump. If the same Mainstream Media cannot find a way to have this Ivy League professor explain his bombshell assertion to the public, a second charge could be levelled that the Mainstream Media is helping Trump's GOP steal Midterms 2018

There's absolutely no excuse as to why CNN or MSNBC cannot interview this esteemed Computer Scientist--none!!
