Epstein Indicted; What About Congressional Politicians?
I’m going to be the skunk at the proverbial picnic for saying this, but if Bill Clinton, former mayor of Philadelphia Ed Rendell and no few of those in Congress as a whole, i.e., both the House and the Senate, former congressman Barney Frank et al are not arrested and charged with rape, pedophilia, running a homosexual prostitution ring allegedly from the principal’s office of a Bethesda, Maryland private school, and the congressional scandals with underage congressional pages – then the heinousness of “alleged” sexual molestations of underage girls, rumored blackmail, extortion and financial skulduggery notwithstanding, I say Jeffrey Epstein should be released and allowed to leave the country.
While you are trying to catch your breath, and wondering if I’ve lost my mind let me explain.
Let me start with Democrat Ed Rendell. He is the former District Attorney and later Mayor of Philadelphia. He is the former Governor of Pennsylvania. He was a member of the Democratic Governors Association Executive Committee and later was elected Chairman of the National Governors Association. He also was Chairman of the Democratic National Committee.
Over the years many are the rumors that have circulated regarding Rendell’s alleged perverted sexual appetite for underage males. A close friend of the late “Sacred Heart of Jesus” police rep from Philadelphia’s “PPD 9th District told me that there were two significant instances that quite possibly were responsible for Rendell not seeking to become America’s first Jewish president. The person told me Rendell’s reputation with the PPD (Philadelphia Police Dept.) was “one of being a true creep.” They spoke of Rendell’s “alleged” interactions, i.e., perverse behavior on Lombard Street in the city. The person also told of a quote allegedly made by a political opponent about his being a “better man” than Rendell and, if needed, “everyone would know” why. I was told that allegedly everyone knew Rendell’s “marriage was a sham political deal,” not unlike other highly publicized political marriages.
Referencing Rendell’s former wife, I would be remiss if I didn’t note that it was Clinton who nominated her up the judicial ladder.
Clinton nominated her to a seat on the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania in 1993 for which she was confirmed. Clinton, four years later in 1997, nominated her to a seat on the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. She was confirmed for said seat and assumed senior status in 2015. I’m not alone in wondering if Clinton’s actions were based upon more than just her judicial acumen? She has been recognized as one of Pennsylvania’s most politically powerful women.
It appears the internet has been scrubbed of information referencing Clinton and Epstein during Clinton’s presidency. I spoke with a colleague Sunday who, like me, remembers that the attorney general under Clinton, Janet Reno, allowed Epstein to slip the noose regarding financial impropriety of some kind; but we do not recall the specifics. I am continuing to look and will share when I have secured same. If I end up dead before I find same, you should know ahead of time that I will not have committed suicide. I neither now or at anytime in the past have ever contemplated suicide nor has any member of my family. But I digress.
Speaking of Bill Clinton and his account of how many times he flew with Epstein, etc. let’s go back to 2015 when I wrote the following: “Hillary should be forced to answer the questions surrounding the ocean of misdeeds, lies, cover-ups, betrayals, accusations of threats of physical harm to people who crossed she and/or her husband, and the simmering questions surrounding her husband’s involvement with billionaire hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein and young girls barely in their teen years who were allegedly procured as sex slaves.” (See: Hillary Clinton: Embarrassment To Herself – Traitor To America; 11/10/2015) (See also: Flight Logs Show Bill Clinton Flew Sex Offenders Jet Much More Than Previously Known; Malia Zimmerman; May 13, 2016)
Continuing with Bill Clinton’s selective memory let’s fast forward to what I wrote in a syndicated column dated April 24, 2017 entitled: “What Makes Bill O’Reilly Worse Than Bill Clinton?”
I offer women like Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones, Kathy Shelton and Kathleen Willey as examples of abused women O’Reilly’s accusers ignore. I offer, for example, Monica Lewinski who was induced by the power of the Oval Office into making a decision that altered her life forever. What man can openly date and/or think about marrying Monica Lewinski without both he and her becoming the brunt of jokes and insults? Porn actresses are treated with more respect than Ms. Lewinski.
This begs an answer to the question, what makes Bill O’Reilly worse than Bill Clinton? Clinton’s physical and emotional abuse of women is unequaled by any man occupying seats of power in modern political history. Add to that Clinton’s arrogant public display of camaraderie with Jeffrey Epstein, the registered sex offender.
The mainstream media point to the number of times O’Reilly was accused and that Fox News settled suits against him as substantiation of his guilt. But let’s ask these same people how many times Clinton gets to ride on Epstein’s private jet called the “Lolita Express,” which is “purportedly” outfitted with a bed so passengers can have sex with the young underage girls Epstein is known for supplying? Apparently, the 26 times that we know of are not enough to incur the wrath and distaste for Clinton from the same people who are disparaging O’Reilly.
Apparently, the adage of “where there’s smoke, there’s fire” only applies to those the left does not like. How many times does Clinton get a pass for traveling without his Secret Service on the flying sex parlor for men who want sex with little girls?
O’Reilly may be a throwback to the days when it was acceptable for lecherous, disrespectful men in authoritative positions to smack a secretary’s rear end, but he is not a Bill Clinton. Nor has O’Reilly been reported associating with the likes of Epstein.
And lest you have forgotten: Epstein spent 13 months in prison and under house arrest for having a team of sexual traffickers who solicited and obtained little girls as young as 12-years-old to sexually satisfy his friends on his estate. His estate is on an island he owns in the U.S. Virgin Islands and is dubbed “Orgy Island.”
On November 29, 2017, I wrote: “There are very few in media and politics that don’t know what goes on behind the scenes. America may be aghast now that it’s been revealed that $17 million of taxpayer money has been secretly used to settle some 260 complaints of sexual misconduct by an assortment of congressional scumbags – but be assured those in my position knew it was going on.” (Matt Lauer and John Conyers Are Low Hanging Fruit; https://mychal-massie.com/matt-lauer-and-john-conyers-are-low-hanging-fruit/)
November 20, 2017, I wrote a column titled: Congressional Members Are Sexual Predators Not Judge Roy Moore. In same I said: Where are the demands for Senator Robert Menendez, D-NJ, to step down after being indicted for corruption and bribery? Why no demands for Menendez to resign over allegations that he solicited underage prostitutes to satisfy his alleged preference for what amounts to sex with children?
James Nye, writing for the Daily Mail, UK, reported January 31, 2013, that a prostitute in the Dominican Republic said Menendez only “likes the youngest and newest girls.” The prostitute is alleged to have “attended sex parties with Menendez.” (See: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2271454/Senator-Bob-Menendez-likes-youngest-girls-says-Dominican-prostitute.html)
Rep. Jackie Speier, D-CA, told NBC’s Chuck Todd: “We do know there is about $15 million that has been paid out by the House on behalf of harassers in the last 10 to 15 years.” Speier also recently testified in front of the House Administration Committee that two members of Congress, a Republican and a Democrat, have engaged in sexual harassment in the past. (See: $15 Million in Taxpayer Money Has Been Paid Out To Settle Congressional Sexual Harassment Suits; ntknetwork.com; 11/14/2017)
These are not allegations; they are facts. Are we to believe that Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, the media, et al were unaware that there have been 260 documented complaints filed against elected officials in the last 20 years? Are we to believe that Congressional leadership wasn’t aware that $15 million taxpayer dollars was secretly paid in settlements? And these are the people claiming Judge Moore is unfit?
Why hasn’t Sean Hannity given them 24 hours to explain themselves? If Hannity’s such a tough guy and champion of the people, why doesn’t he demand Congress give us an answer.
A November 14, 2017, article by “thehill.com” reported: “Lawmakers describe pervasive sexual harassment on Capitol Hill.” Once again, it is important to note that these are not mere allegations. This pattern of predatory sexual behavior in Congress continues uninterrupted.
Susan Jones writing for CNSNews.com reported that Rep. Barbara Comstock, R-VA, only days ago, told a House Administration Committee hearing: “A sitting member of the U.S. Congress exposed himself to a young female staffer who delivered papers to his house, at his request.” (See: Rep. Barbara Comstock: Member of Congress Exposed Himself to a Staffer; 11/15/2017)
Remember Barney Frank, the now retired Democrat Congressman from Massachusetts? I’ve written at length about his boyfriend who was allegedly running a homosexual escort service out of the principal’s office at an exclusive Bethesda, Maryland elementary school.
Tangential to being recognized as making Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, look like a Hollywood sex symbol, the disheveled congressman Barney Frank:
- ‘Recommended’ his boyfriend for a lucrative senior executive job at Fannie Mae while Frank served on a key post on the House Finance Committee. And his subsequent shielding of his boyfriend’s employer from congressional oversight or regulation when questions began to be raised about Fannie and Freddie’s mismanagement that ultimately resulted in the mortgage bubble and the toxic derivatives that spread through the economy. The specter of a quid pro quo add/or undue influence at the very least hung like a shadow over Frank but his fellow congressmen and the media had no interest in pursuing it.
- The onerous and draconian Dodd-Frank Financial “reform” bill that left Fannie and Freddie untouched while effectively constraining economic activity during a recession and raising fees on the very consumers it was supposed to protect.
- Frank was censored by the House for allowing another of his boyfriend’s to run a homosexual prostitution ring out of Frank’s home, something that would have landed an ordinary person in jail.
Following is a list of scandals that rocked Congress over the years; scandals I might add, that only the most hardcore ideologues would not instantly understand it is reasonable to believe involved extortion and influence peddling when it came time to pass legislation in Congress.
Rep. Wayne Hays hired an unqualified secretary exclusively for sex acts in 1976. Rep. Wayne Hays’s mistress told the Washington Post that Hays hired her as a secretary even though, as she told the Post: “I can’t type. I can’t file. I can’t even answer the phone.” But then she didn’t have to because she wasn’t hired to type. She was hired to have sex with Hays and his friends and the taxpayers paid her government salary.
In 2006, Florida’s Mark Foley was caught up in a congressional sex scandal when it was learned he was sending sexually explicit instant messages to teenage male congressional pages. He ultimately resigned with his full pension, no jail time and no lawsuits that I am aware of.
In 1983, a sex scandal rocked congress when the House Ethics Committee “recommended” Rep. Dan Crane and Rep. Gerry Studds be given, what in the lexicon of congress, constitutes a “harsh reprimand.” In reality it amounted to a wink-wink and a don’t get caught again. Their crime had been having sex with underage congressional pages. They suffered no lost of privilege and continued to be reelected, with Studds retiring in 1997.
In 1978, Rep. Fred Richmond was arrested for soliciting sex from juvenile a male and also from an undercover cop. Richmond suffered no penalty for his crimes and remained a congressman until he was arrested for tax evasion and other federal charges in 1982.
These are just the tip of the congressional and political iceberg. You will note that none of the politicians suffered any penalty more severe than a period of negative press before going on to be reelected and continue doing what they had been doing before. Or at the very worst they ended up taking lucrative politically involved positions in the private sector.
Which brings me back to Jeffrey Epstein. I know it sounds horrible and insensitive to say, but why is he going to jail when the very people clamoring for his head have ignored the sexual perversion in Congress, which remains one of the worst kept secrets on Capitol Hill. Second perhaps only to the number of drunks and drug addicts holding congressional office and positions in the media.
