All three episodes of Epstein's Shadow: Ghislaine Maxwell were released on the Peacock Network (NBC's streaming service) on June 24th and Sky's streaming service in the UK on June 28th , 2021. Because of my long history of covering all things Epstein, it was of interest to me. It was billed as a documentary, although Blue Ant Media, the production company, claims it specializes in “factual entertainment”. A colleague and I settled on the term “Docutainment”, while discussing the biggest problems with the three hour media product.

Although CNN reported on August 11th that there was a circulating draft of an executive order to censor social media in order to make it more “fair” for “conservatives” and the network has claimed to be in possession of the text, they have yet to release it. Many news outlets, both large and small, have commented on the order, almost uniformly in the negative. Without the text they are mostly doing so without any real knowledge, and are speculating, with input from their picked legal scholars on a draft.
Billionaire Pedophile Jeffery Epstein, who has previously been extensively covered by this publication, was found dying in his cell last night in the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in NYC and pronounced dead later at the hospital. Although he was seen on a stretcher bleeding from the ears (photo below) and the cause of death was officially cardiac arrest, authorities claim he committed suicide and hanging himself in his cell.
Stormy Daniels, the adult film star embroiled in intertwining lawsuits with Donald Trump and his former lawyer turned prison bitch Michael Cohen, was arrested at Sirens in Columbus today in the early morning hours. Daniels is accused illegally touching patrons at the club, at least four of whom were undercover police officers. Her bail was $6054 and her often outspoken lawyer, Michael Avenatti is claiming that the arrest was a “setup” and “politically motivated.” Avenatti continued “She has performed this show at over 100 clubs across the country.”
A Donald Trump tweet threatened protestors and media including this publication as a crackdown begins
Donald Trump's tweets are always a good source of entertainment over my morning covfefe. However when the tweets touch your actual life, you might spit the beverage on your keyboard. On the morning of June 28th, ICE deployed riot cops, along with local police, in full tactical gear with live ammo, to shut down two of the five ongoing occupations and blockades of ICE offices in Portland and Detroit. The Portland crackdown resulted in 9 arrests.
Yesterday, June 21st, Donald Trump signed an executive order that he claimed would end the policy of separating children of asylum seekers and other immigrants from their families at the border and putting them in camps until they are parceled out to non-profits, trafficked, or simply lost. 65 children are “processed” in this way on the Texas border alone each and every day. The executive order does not end family separation and in fact makes it worse and permanent.
A Look at the Private Concentration Camps where profits are made when immigrant children are ripped from their parents
A picture went viral on the internet two days ago on May 27th. It was a shocking picture of a prison bus with car seats for toddlers. It was alleged that the bus was used to transport immigrant children after they were separated from their parents on the direct permanent orders of pro-segregation Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
It is hard to determine the truth as to what happened when president Trump ordered a “one-off” military strike on Syria with “smart. Very smart.” missiles. There are conflicting reports on the actual targets of the strikes and these reports vary by source country. As it stands, the United States, the UK and France participated in the strike. The United States, Russia, Iran, and Turkey have military forces operating in Syria along with non-state actors that include two different versions of a Free Syrian Army, Kurdish forces from the YGP, Kurdish forces from Iraq and Hezbollah.
April 7th opened up with a raid of the home and offices of Trump attorney Michael Cohen. These raids were directed by the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York not special prosecutor Robert Muller. That makes this a separate investigation and it has nothing to do with Russia. If the raids did have something to do with Russian influence on American elections, they would barely touch Michael Cohen and at least one prominent Republican would be in the cross-hairs. The narrative would draw a directly line between the US Senate, Russian banks and white supremacists.
