Cynics Wonder If Democrat Jeffrey Epstein Will Really Face Justice
Rush ^ | July 9, 2019 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 07/09/2019 12:37:56 PM PDT by Kaslin

RUSH: Man, oh, man, the cynicism is alive and well. I understand it. I understand it. Cynicism may, in fact, make common sense. Snerdley walked in today, “You don’t really think anything is gonna happen to this Epstein guy, do you?”

I said, “I don’t know. They seem pretty serious about getting him.”

“Come on, Rush, the guy’s a Democrat. It’s the #MeToo movement.”

And I said, “Yeah, and look there’s Harvey Weinstein out there.”

And Snerdley said, “Yeah, Harvey Weinstein’s still roaming the prairies. Nothing’s really happened to Weinstein yet except a bunch of stuff in the media.”

understand the cynicism here. There are some powerful people that will go to, I mean — he-he-he — great lengths to make sure they are not mentioned in this. Bill Clinton is in the biggest CYA of his life. I mean, what the Clinton apparatus is attempting to do here pales with what they did with Lewinsky.

That was a warmup. That was chump change for what the Clinton machine is trying to do now to extricate Clinton from everything about Epstein. This is a continually unfolding story.


RUSH: The left is, as we speak, editing the Jeffrey Epstein WikiLeaks page and removing the names of all Democrats. Oh, yes, they are! I know it’s sleazy. I know it’s dirty, but they’ve been doing it overnight. I’ve got examples here.

And, you know, the number one name mentioned in this story so far in the Drive-By Media, Alex Acosta, Trump’s labor secretary, trying to get him fired. He was the state attorney in Miami that signed the original deal with Epstein. He’s not the story! Epstein’s the story. There’s any number of people that could have prosecuted Epstein, Preet Bharara at the SDNY.


RUSH: In order to understand this Epstein stuff, you have to know a bit of history.

The guy has been a devoted supporter of Democrats. He has been a loyal Democrat. He’s not been active publicly, say, at the Democrat convention or Democrat fundraisers, but he is a major, major financial bank roller. He also is a guy who provided massive social opportunities — parties, the underage girls to any number of powerful people, not just Democrats, but primarily Democrats.

He is somebody who’s shrouded in mystery about where he got his money. There’s a lot of mythology attached to Jeffrey Epstein because there’s so little actually known. A lot of people that become billionaires, you can find out how they did it, what they did that resulted in the generation of that kind of wealth. With Epstein nobody knows for sure. They assume it’s wealth management. He’s never been a hedge funder.

Some people say he’s a consultant and he only advises billionaires and takes a cut of how well they do after his consultancy advice. It’s murky. But what he was known for was jet set globe-trotting. He’s also considered to be a Mensa type genius. He is fascinated by mathematics, fascinated by physics. He bankrolls major Ivy League universities, science and math departments, personally invites professors in specialties to his homes for dinner, picks their brains.

They’re flattered to be invited. Contrary to the story that’s being made public now about the underage girls — I mean, that’s sleazy stuff — but he’s not Hollywood type sleaze. The guy’s got other involvements and attachments. It’s what makes him such an attractive figure to people who are attracted to people like this.

He had a madam, the daughter of Robert Maxwell. She helped to procure the underage women and knew full well what she was doing for all of the guests of Epstein’s and for him personally. So, anyway, the stuff was widely known for a lot of years, and nobody did anything about it because it’s Jeffrey Epstein, big time, multibillionaire, lawyers, doctors, everybody in his back pocket, everybody was a customer, everybody was a beneficiary.

He played it very smart. What he didn’t count on was these young girls growing up, telling their parents what had happened. A lot of their parents didn’t know where they were during the day or at night, 14, 15-year-olds, you know, lackadaisical some parents can be nowadays. Not all. And when parents began to find out, that’s when they began to get hold of lawyers and that’s when a different group of people started acting interested in this.

You’re telling me what? This guy has used your daughter to provide massages for all these well to do people and made what doing it? And she’s underage? So it was the attempts by lawyers representing the young girl victims that really got all of this going. And it resulted in, as I mentioned yesterday, the Palm Beach Police Department did a multiple-year, exhaustive investigation, and they got witnesses, they got details, they got facts and figures, dollar amounts, they came up with evidence beyond evidence.

And they turned it over to the Palm Beach County state attorney’s office, where it basically got buried. And the Palm Beach Police Department was beside itself. They could not understand what was going on. I mean, they could, they did, but to them, it was such an open-and-shut case. There wasn’t any question about what was going on inside the rooms at this guy’s home here in Palm Beach or wherever else he has homes.

The Palm Beach state attorney’s office is an elective office. It was run by Democrats for many of the years this was going on. So it ends up being, from the standpoint of state law, Epstein got a veritable slap on the wrist and the state attorney’s office, if my memory is correct, said they didn’t have enough to prosecute, didn’t have enough to go to court, the witnesses weren’t reliable, you know, this kind of thing.

But when the lawsuits began, the civil lawsuits began that were entered into by the parents of some of the girls, well, that’s when the case became federal because it involved crossing state lines and so forth. And Alex Acosta, who is Trump’s labor secretary, the CliffsNotes version of this is, he was the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Florida, which is in Miami, at the time all of this came to a head.

Now, Epstein’s lawyers down here was a who’s who. You think OJ had a defense table of who’s who, you should have seen this bunch. Included in that team of lawyers and representatives was Professor Dershowitz. I mean, there were all kinds of mental health specialists. I mean, it was an army of people. And the message was clear. If you want to bring a suit against this guy, you’re gonna get buried, you’re gonna get destroyed. You had powerful people who are titans of law on Epstein’s side.

Anyway, I don’t know all of the details, but a final plea deal was made with Epstein, and Alex Acosta was the U.S. attorney in the office at the time, which made the deal. It involved basically a year and a half of jail time at the Palm Beach County jail with work release privileges every day. The guy got to go home 12 hours a day. He was not in jail the full time, sun up to sundown, well, 24/7 for a year and a half.

Then he got out early for good behavior and so forth. And the victims and their lawyers said this is just not right. Anybody else would have been sent packing and never seen again. Most people would be at Club Gitmo after all this. So there have been numerous pushes to reopen the plea deal. The plea deal that was signed involved immunity for prosecution for a number of Epstein’s associates and himself. And a push was made to reopen that based on the fact that the plea deal was against the law.

Now, you might say, “Rush, I thought plea deals, once they were signed, you couldn’t do anything about it.” You can’t, normally. But if those things are believed to be illegal, then you can reopen. That’s what’s happening now. That’s what has happened. The Southern District for New York has decided that the plea deal made by the Southern District of Florida is full of holes. And so now they’re gonna take this case and prosecute it.

What’s interesting is everybody involved in this, once Epstein was sentenced to a year and a half in the Palm Beach County jail, everybody thought it was over, everybody thought they had skated, everybody thought they had gotten out alive with not even their names mentioned. Now they are quaking in their boots.

The Democrats who want to politicize everything are trying to make sure that none of this is associated with the Democrat Party when most of this is Democrats. Epstein’s a Democrat. Clinton’s a Democrat. Most of the people visiting Epstein were Democrats. A lot of them were apolitical. Some of his neighbors, they were just people, average, ordinary people who knew Epstein, would go in and have a little fun, frolic for a couple hours with some women and leave, not political at all.

But the people with whom Epstein was close to whom he donated support, bankrolled Democrats, like leftists are now busy at Wikipedia trying to remove all Democrat names from the Wikipedia entry for Epstein. Clinton’s out there (Clinton impression), “I didn’t know — ha-ha – I knew the guy, but, hey, hey, let me tell you something, dude. Every time I flew with this guy on one of his jets the Secret Service was right there. Don’t you dare try to pin this thing on me. Look at me. Never, I never had sex with any of those women in Epstein’s house ever, not a single time. I gotta get back to Hillary.”

So that’s Clinton’s line. But we got somebody now saying he’s lying. He was much more involved. We know that he was. They were bragging about it. It was a big deal to be invited on Epstein’s 727 or whatever it was to fly off to Africa, supposedly on some kind of a charity mission, but those were just covers. Be invited Epstein’s private island in the Virgin Islands, and I guarantee you there weren’t any on Epstein’s private island.

So now they’re trying to make Alex Acosta, Trump’s labor secretary, he’s the guy that needs to pay the price here. Yeah. So this morning, Chuck You Schumer, who was the biggest sponsor of Preet Bharara, former United States attorney for the Southern District of New York, he ran the office, he was Chuck You’s guy, Chuck You is out there demanding that Acosta quit as labor secretary because of how embarrassing was his conduct in making the original deal with Epstein that basically gave him a pass.

And if Acosta will not resign, Chuck You’s demanding that Trump fire him. So here we are, here these guys pop up, change the narrative, go on offense with this stuff when they ought to be on defense for as long as the day is long and as long as this month lasts they ought to be on defense. But now they’re trying to make the bad guy here Acosta, not Epstein. I’m hearing people pronounce it Epstein this morning. I’ve always heard it pronounced Epstein. I’m not trying to purposely get it wrong.

But I’m telling you, Alex Acosta, I don’t care what his involvement, had nothing to do with the substance of why anybody is interested in this. Folks, the Democrats are in a mad dash to cover this up because this is once again a bunch of the Democrats, a bunch of leftists totally disrespecting young women, having their way with them sexually and then discarding them. The #MeToo movement.

There aren’t any Republicans in this story. They’re gonna try to manufacture some, they’re gonna try to place some there, and that’s why they’re focusing on Alex Acosta. Trump just got finished defending Acosta, the press gaggle in the Oval Office, a big announcement of a deal coming up in Qatar. Qatar’s gonna buy a bunch of Boeing airplanes. Big, big deal, Trump announced it. And so the press: “Are you gonna fire Acosta?”

(paraphrasing) “No, Acosta’s a great guy, great guy, he’s doing a great job as Labor secretary.” So Trump came out and defended him. So that’s what the attempt today is, is to shift all the attention and focus away from Epstein over to Alex Acosta.


RUSH: Grab sound bites 18 and 19. Last night, Fox News Channel Shannon Bream, she had on an investigative journalist and author of the book TrafficKing, Conchita Sarnoff. First question: “Tonight, President Clinton has spoken out and said he wanted to make it clear that there was some travel with him, there was always secret service, they had brief meetings.” He basically knows nothing.

SARNOFF: I know from the pilot logs, and these are pilot logs that were written by different pilots and at different times, that Clinton went, he was a guest of Epstein’s 27 times. Now, you tell me. Doug Band was also on the plane many times. Many of those times Clinton had his secret service with him and many times he did not. Almost every time that Clinton’s name is on the pilot logs, there are underage girls. There are initials, and there are names of many, many girls on that private plane.

RUSH: Look, folks, let’s not lose track of something. Does it not make total sense that if there’s an airplane full of young girls, and Bill Clinton’s on it, that it makes total sense? It would not be unusual. The unusual thing would be Clinton was invited on a Lolita Air Express of Jeffrey Epstein and turned it down. That would be the story. But that’s not the story.

Clinton said (Clinton impression), “I never saw any women on these flights. You know, I had my Secret Service.” The flight logs say no. He can’t weasel out of this. Next question: “The statement from his office goes on to talk about how he took a total of four trips with him. Are you saying the former president is not telling the truth?”

SARNOFF: Yes, I am saying sadly that he is not telling the truth. First of all, Gerald Lefcourt, who was one of Epstein’s attorneys back during the original arrest and the original investigation, wrote a letter which has been made public. And in that letter, Lefcourt claims that Epstein was one of the original funders of the Clinton Global Initiative. Jeffrey Epstein gave President Clinton $4 million according to a source who knows the story about that.

RUSH: Yeah, Clinton Global Initiative. That was, you know, a little thing. You talk about knock-offs. It goes on in New York at the same time the United Nations General Assembly meets, and who’s in town? A bunch of young girls. It’s never any different, always same story.


RUSH: So Bill Clinton says he knows nothing about these terrible crimes alleged against Epstein. He had nothing to do it. But wait a minute. Isn’t the new standard of justice that Clinton has to prove he didn’t do it? Isn’t that what came out of the Mueller report? Isn’t that the new standard of justice for D.C.?

Let's face it, what Epstein did is nowhere near as heinous as maybe groping a woman at a drunken frat party 30 years ago. /s

Acosta was working for Meuller and did what his boss told him to.

They wanted to drop it completely but Acosta at least made sure he became a registered sex offender.

Being cynical is being rational in our world today. We can expect that he will walk, or will receive a sentence far, far less severe than would be meted out to one of us mere citizens. In a world where Jesse Smollett skates,with broad political and judicial support, can we be anything BUT cynical? Should we be?

Clinton committed perjury, abused an intern and attempted rape on another woman while President. (put some ice on it..)

He lost his law license.

Yep, I am very cynical that anything will happen to Epstein.

Cynics Wonder If Democrat Jeffrey Epstein Will Really Face Justice

Rush, it appears you are slipping or just losing your touch with reality.
Since America is a Nation of Men, we subjects know damn well that the Public Masters and The Ruling Class are ALL Above those petty laws we peasant subjects live under.

Now if we were a Nation of Laws, things might be different.

Acosta was actually working for the Attorney General, as the US Attorney for the Southern District of Florida. But rest assured, Bobby Muller was involved in the decision-making process. He has a long history of protecting sleazeballs who are also FBI informants. Just ask Whitey Bulger. Oh, that’s right; he was killed last year, just hours after being transferred to the federal prison in Hazelton, WV, one of the most dangerous in the system. Not that Whitey didn’t deserve his fate, but the transfer decision (and its timing) remain very curious.

Very young girls in Africa... There was a creepy picture of Clinton in Africa at a mining operation - all tough looking men in a room - and Bill Clinton holding the hand of a beautiful black child... she's all dressed up and no women, mothers, or female workers in site...
