    Is there a way to block certain posters from intruding in threads and vomiting all over? Certain posters add nothing to the discussion.

    Also I'm fine being in the "torch and pitchfork" welding mob when it comes to child rape and human trafficking. YMMV.

    Talk about being gullible....

    "I was told Epstein ‘belonged to intelligence’ and to leave it alone,” he told his interviewers in the Trump transition, who evidently thought that was a sufficient answer and went ahead and hired Acosta.....

    .......It’s quite hard to know what to make of this claim. As one of my colleagues just pointed out to me the dialog itself seems more out of Hollywood that something you’d hear from a former US Attorney. On it’s face this sounds like second or third hand information, which puts some question over its reliability and may explain the movie script dialog. More importantly, Acosta is hardly a reliable fact witness in this case. He has every reason to deflect responsibility for the deal he made with Epstein. Finally, it seems highly improbable that Epstein “belonged to intelligence”.

    What does seem plausible though is that Epstein had many very high profile defenders and that this somehow translated into message to back off or to make the situation go away with as little publicity and pressure on Epstein as possible. We can blame Acosta for the deal he cut. But that doesn’t explain why he did. Getting told to back off or hearing directly from a bunch of Epstein’s high roller friends sounds like a logical supposition.

    It certainly seems worth asking under oath what Acosta told transition officials when he was angling for and getting his current cabinet position.

    Haven't read but a few posts of this thread, but absolutely none of this stuff is new. The most concerning thing I found about Trump that seemed legitimate was the case of another 15 year old who had a case against him and Epstein. It was baffling to me how a media can look for anything to throw at Trump, down to how he eats fried chicken, yet nobody cared about that story. It had more legs than any nonsense or Russian collusion that's been peddled. My assumption was that it didn't get covered because of Epstein's connection to Clinton. But yeah, this stuff is so 3 years ago. Thanks, everyone, for paying attention.

    I'm sure it feels like that, from your perspective. Someone that gets called out on ******** reacts one of two ways; accepts it and changes, or believes everyone wants to provide that special someone an extremely late term abortion.

    Take your pick, but you certainly land in one of these two categories.

    Once upon a time I asked if we could have owner level rules on threads. Only post with this, or no one for that set by the OP. I think it'd be a cool feature, but it'd be a nightmare to manage. I doubt they'd want to run with it.

    That's not crying, that's explaining a detailed past. I'm so sorry you can't see that.

    Do you want me to draw you a picture?

    Sure, although I still prefer "whine more".
