*The Secrets of Epstein’s World:

Jeffrey Epstein liked to sleep in a 54-degree chill. That’s the detail that a woman who was involved with Epstein in the early 2000s remembers most vividly because she couldn’t nod off in the cold: “I was like, I’m fucking freezing. I’m going to die of hypothermia.” But Epstein had his rules. He never wanted to go to restaurants, preferring his chef’s meals of mostly plants and grilled protein. He meditated each morning, in complete silence. He worked out but was wary of bulking up too much, theorizing that too much muscle mass was detrimental to one’s intelligence. “He had theories about…everything,” the woman adds.

In addition to his sexual predation with “tweens and teens,” Epstein pursued ambitious, beautiful New York City women in their 20s in the early 2000s, some of them ex-models seeking a professional afterlife. To this woman, and others, Epstein introduced himself as the owner of a hedge fund with clients investing $1 billion or more. He kept his child molestation secret, and came off as a gentle, erudite recluse. He was often at movie premieres, sometimes with a blonde on each arm—a blonde of legal age, but still, as noted this week by David Boies, usually under 25 years old. His predation had not been reported to the police yet, but there were indications that he was somewhat different than most mature men his age. Eleanora Kennedy, the elegant wife of powerhouse lawyer Michael Kennedy, recalls asking Epstein to underwrite a premiere party at the Metropolitan Club for The White Countess, a Merchant Ivory film released in 2005. “I got him on the phone and explained that the event was also a benefit for a women’s medical center conducting a study about menopause,” says Kennedy. “As soon as I said ‘menopause,’ he said, ‘Ms. Kennedy, if you don’t say that word again, I’ll send you a check for $10,000.’”

Epstein was open about his interest in sex, presenting it as his only vice. He did not drink, smoke cigarettes, or take drugs. He was a germaphobe who hated shaking hands and preferred to spend most of his time off his massage table talking with important men like President Bill Clinton about politics on speakerphone (he liked it when a woman he was involved with listened in).

Epstein was too agoraphobic to regularly frequent nightclubs. He preferred to stay on his own turf, to be king of his own castle, where he collected both important male friends like Clinton and Lawrence Summers—“he was a star fucker,” says the former model. He saw himself as a great collector of beautiful women too, almost as if were saving them from other men, who could be brutes.

 *HOLY TEENAGER – Military Eyes 16-year-olds as Ranks and Candidates Dwindle:

As the ArmyNavy and other services contend with a thriving economy and a directive to expand their ranks, there is a growing debate over whether the military should consider lowering the minimum enlistment age from 17 to 16. More than a dozen countries, including the United Kingdom, already have adopted the policy.

Critics say the idea is deeply flawed and presents a host of societal problems, but supporters argue that the Pentagonneeds to think outside the box if it wants to continually overcome one of the toughest recruiting environments in decades.

Neither the military nor lawmakers have given any indication that they are entertaining the idea, but some analysts say that opening the ranks to younger Americans could provide unique benefits and may be the kind of fundamental overhaul the recruiting system needs for the 21st century.

 *Students Slam Trump Statement On Immigration, Then Learn Obama
Said It:

After President Trump announced that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) would be rounding up illegal aliens convicted of crimes last week, Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips wanted to see how students at Georgetown University would respond to the crackdown on criminal illegal immigrants. But instead of presenting students an announcement from Trump for their reactions, Phillips used a statement delivered by then-President Obama back in 2014 touting his administration’s enforcement of the same policy. “We are a nation of laws,” said Obama in a statement Phillips presented to the students as coming from Trump. “Undocumented workers broke our immigration laws, and I believe that they must be held accountable, especially those who may be dangerous. That’s why over the past six years deportations of criminals are up 80 percent, and that’s why we’re going to keep focusing on threats to our security.”

“I think that policy comes from a place of white Americannationalism,” says one student when Phillips asks for her response to the quote and the policy. “Donald Trump has kind of like embraced this rhetoric of racism and xenophobia — that is not beneficial to our country at all,” says another. “I don’t think that that quote really stands true,” says another student. “This administration has totally not done anything moral,” adds another. “This was really awful,” says one incensed student. “Amnesty does not necessarily mean we’re losing border security,” explains another, “and I think Trump feels that way.” “I think that’s a bad decision because like the United Statesshould be open to immigrants,” says yet another student.

 *Serial Killer Victim’s Mother Sues Academy Sports Over Gun Purchases:

The mother of a victim of serial killer Todd Kohlhepp has filed a lawsuit against Academy Sports and against the man convicted of providing guns purchased at Academy to Kohlhepp. Authorities found Johnny Coxie, whose mother Cindy Coxie filed the suit, buried on the killer’s property in 2016 with two other people. The suit names 33-year-old Dustan Lawson and Academy Sports as defendants and claims that the national brand should have recognized that Lawson was buying guns on behalf of someone legally barred from owning them.

Kohlhepp had been convicted of rape in Arizona in 1987 and was legally prohibited from owning firearms. A jury in 2017 decided that Kohlhepp must serve seven consecutive life sentences after killing seven people. He was first arrested a year earlier when a woman was rescued from a metal container on his property after spending weeks in captivity.

 *Alan Dershowitz’s Wife Blames #MeToo For Accusations Against
Her Husband:

The wife of celebrity lawyer Alan Dershowitz has blamed the #MeToo movement for allegations against her husband. Speaking to New York Magazine’s IntelligencerCarolyn Cohen lamented that her husband is the victim of man hating and claims by another celebrity lawyer David Boies that her husband had sex with one of Jeffrey Epstein’s victims while he defended the financier are pure fantasy. “My hope, my greatest dream, would be for this to be revealed as really a sinister plot by Boies, and that he gets what’s due to him, and Alan gets totally exonerated,” Cohen told the Intelligencer.

“And the #MeToo movement pulls back some and becomes a more reasonable, due process-oriented, valuable movement. This alerts us to the dangers of being too fanatical.” She added that she believed that the balance of presumption had tilted too far. “It’s like, all men are evil.”

 *Dropping F-Bomb Increases Pain Tolerance By A Third, Study Finds:

Can’t help but shout an expletive every time you stub your toe? Don’t feel too bad, you may actually be doing yourself a favor. A new study finds that swearing when injured has a measurable effect on pain tolerance. In fact, dropping the F-bomb specifically when in pain increases tolerance by up to 33%. The study, led by a group of language and psychology experts in the United Kingdom, explored how effective established, new, and invented swear words can be in increasing pain tolerance and pain threshold.

Brett Vance, Host of TV’s Jet Jockeys, Raves Over New British Airways Exhibit

As part of its year-long centenary celebration, British Airways is opening up a major interactive exhibit that will dive into both the history and the future of flight. Set to open in August, “BA 2119: Flight of the Future” will be revealed inside the Saatchi Gallery in London, offering visitors a glimpse ahead of what the future of air travel could look like over the next 100 years.

“If you want to learn more about the future of air travel, our friends at British Airways have got you covered,” states Brett Vance, aviation expert and Host of TV’s *Jet Jockeys, “It’s their 100-year anniversary this year; and to commemorate that accomplishment, the company has developed an outstanding exhibit in partnership with the Royal College of Art.”

Brett Vance is the creative mastermind behind TV’s Jet Jockeys, an upcoming docu-reality series focusing on pilots and the planes they fly. He also recently launched **AirLifeTimes, a new aviation blog that is sure to explode in popularity over the coming months.

“If you’ve ever returned home from a trip where you flew to your destination and your thoughts turned towards what air travel would be like in the future, this exhibit is perfect for you,” continues Brett Vance, “and chances are, a lot of other people are right there with you.”


Did you know?

Babies are born to boogie.

Talk about tiny dancers! Studies have proven that babies are born with an innate sense of rhythm. While they may not be able to bust a move quite yet, research shows that babies have an instinctive ability to respond to the rhythm and tempo of music and may even find it more engaging than speech.

Just one of the incredible clues to understanding “The Mystery of ……….BABIES.”

I want to kick away from the daily and get to something larger. We are a nation of just under 330 million. We have a lot of disputes, always have, argument is one of our traditions. To make it all work, to keep this thing going, we have to give each other a little room, a little space. We have so many different thoughts and ways. We have to be easy with each other, not pick on each other all the time.This requires tact, which sounds sissy and small-time but is not. Tact takes brains and discipline. It’s a form of empathy: You see the other guy is embarrassed or unhappy, and you decide not to make it worse. You hold back from causing unnecessary pain. It is connected to graciousness: You let your foe up easy.

In a great roiling democracy tact isn’t only desirable, it is necessary. We won’t hold together as a nation without it. And we don’t value it at all. We let it slide down the hole of old habits. Who teaches civic tact now? What has taken its place in our political culture is a spirit of maximalism—let’s rub their faces in it.

In New York six months ago it wasn’t enough to pass one of the most radical pro-abortion laws in the land; you had to light up the World Trade Center and the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge in pink lights to celebrate. So that even the skyline approves of what you did. You say you do this because you’re happy. You do it to rub the opposition’s faces in it. Before all that and most famously there was “bake my cake.” You’re not allowed simply to absorb the nation’s changing ways; you have to become part of my wedding even if your faith prohibits this, and if you don’t, I’ll gather my friends and kill your business. Progressives cannot understand what a wound this was to conservative Christians, who were obeying the law but hoped not to be pushed around.

Nike makes a new sneaker they’re unveiling on July 4, and it’s got a Betsy Ross flag on it, but Colin Kaepernick, a bright and eccentric young man, declares that flag a racist symbol because we used to have slavery and now have unresolved racial problems. And Nike says: What Colin says goes, no flag sneaker for you, America! Who’s worse, Mr. Kaepernick, so full of himself that his need to provide moral instruction is never ameliorated by any personal modesty, or the mealy-mouthed weasel-cynic corporate executives who in their play-to-the-demographic, postpatriotic way give worldly success a bad name?

What does it matter? They’re rubbing your face in it.

*HELL ON EARTH – Temperatures in U.S. Cities to Break Heat Index by 2050, Study Warns:

Hundreds of U.S. cities could see an entire month each year with heat-index temperatures soaring above 100 degrees by 2050 if global warming isn’t curtailed, a terrifying new study has predicted. “Our analysis shows a hotter future that’s hard to imagine today,” said study co-author Kristina Dahl, climate scientist at the Union of Concerned Scientists. “Nearly everywhere, people will experience more days of dangerous heat in the next few decades.” The heat index is what the temperature feels like to the human body when humidity is combined with the air temperature.

The study predicts the number of days each year when it feels like it’s more than 100 degrees will more than double nationally, with conditions becoming so extreme on some days that they’d break the current upper limit of the heat index. “We have little to no experience with ‘off-the-charts’ heat in the U.S.,” said co-author Erika Spanger-Siegfried, adding they “could be deadly.”

 *Kanye West Designing ‘Star Wars’-Themed ‘Living Spaces for
the Homeless’:

Rapper Kanye West is working on a project to design and build “living spaces for the homeless” based on the “Star Wars” movie franchise. West’s vision is to create low-income housing modeled after the fictional planet of “Tatooine,” West revealed at one point in a lengthy interview with Forbes: “Speaking of aliens, if you really want to see how West’s creative process works, then a visit to the Star Wars planet of Tatooine is necessary. Inspired by Luke Skywalker’s childhood home, West has been working with a team to design prefabricated structures that sport the same austere aesthetic, with the goal of deploying them as low-income housing units. Just after midnight he ushers me into his Lamborghini for an impromptu visit, barreling back down the road with Bach blasting on the sound system. After about 15 minutes, we arrive at a bungalow in the woods.”

West told Forbes Senior Editor Zack O’Malley Greenburg the units “could be used as living spaces for the homeless, perhaps sunk into the ground with light filtering in through the top” and gave him a glimpse of what the housing will look like: “There, with the hazy heft of something enormous and far away, stand a trio of structures that look like the skeletons of wooden spaceships. They’re the physical prototypes of his concept, each oblong and dozens of feet tall, and West leads me inside each one.”

 *‘NOT A TYPO’: Democrat Poll Shows What Voters Think Of Omar, Ocasio-Cortez:

A new internal Democrat poll in swing districts released on Sunday showed that socialist Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) are extremely unpopular and that they may cost the Democratic Party the presidency and the House in 2020. “Ocasio-Cortez was recognized by 74% of voters in the poll; 22% had a favorable view,” Axios reported. “Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota — another member of The Squad — was recognized by 53% of the voters; 9% (not a typo) had a favorable view.”

“Socialism was viewed favorably by 18% of the voters and unfavorably by 69%,” Axios added, whereas “capitalism was 56% favorable; 32% unfavorable.” The firm that conducted the poll gave the results to Axios on the condition that it not be named because it works “with all parts of the party.” A top Democrat involved in the 2020 congressional races said: “If all voters hear about is AOC, it could put the [House] majority at risk. [S]he’s getting all the news and defining everyone else’s races. Socialism is toxic to these voters.”

*Scalise: ‘No Moderates Left; It’s Literally Liberals Versus Socialists and the Socialists Are Winning’:

“It’s ugly and getting uglier, House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) said Thursday, commenting on the row between Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).” There are no moderates left in the Democrat Party, and liberal Pelosi is losing the battle with socialists like Ocasio-Cortez, Scalise told Fox News: “It’s ugly and getting uglier. You are seeing this fight between the far-left socialists and liberals. It used to be, in the Democrat Party, a fight between liberals and moderates. There are no moderates left. “It’s, literally, liberals versus socialists and the socialists are winning. “But, for Nancy Pelosi to think that she can silence AOC and these other far-left socialists just shows that she’s out of touch with what’s happening in her own conference. And that, I think, is shocking a lot of people, because she used to control with an iron fist.”

Scalise said he thinks Pelosi is so out of touch that she has no idea how powerful far-left socialists have become in he party: “Yea, I think she is completely misreading just how much of a grip these far-left socialist have on her conference. “Look, AOC is threatening some of the liberals that she is going to run somebody in their primary if they vote for mainstream policies. I mean a lot of them ran saying they were going to be pro-life, pro-gun and anti-Pelosi. They’re voting to raise taxes. They’re voting to take away your gun rights and they’re voting down the line with Nancy Pelosi. “And, yet, that’s not enough for AOC and the socialists. They’re having this internal struggle. It’s starting to play out publicly. But, it just shows you, you know: they ran and Pelosi took the gavel trying to think that she could appeal to Middle America. And, Middle America is looking at this going, ‘Wait a minute, we are not a socialist nation. We are still a center right nation.'”

 *1 Federal Department Now Spending $100 Billion Per Month:

For the first time in our nation’s history, there is now a federal department spending an average of more than $100 billion per month. No, it is not the Department of Defense, which is charged with the core federal responsibility of defending us from foreign enemies. It is the Department of Health and Human Services, which, if Democratic Sen. Bernie Sandersof Vermont has his way, will run the “Medicare for All” program. As it now stands, HHS runs Medicare for many and Medicaid for more.

“In 2019, the program will cover an estimated 61 million persons (52 million aged and 9 million disabled),” the Congressional Research Service said of Medicare in a report published in May. “Medicaid is a means-tested entitlement program that finances the delivery of primary and acute medical services as well as long-term services and supports (LTSS) to an estimated 75 million people at a cost to states and the federal government of $616 billion in FY2018,” CRS said in a report published in June. “CBO also estimates that federal Medicare spending (after deduction of beneficiary premiums and other offsetting receipts) will be about $637 billion in 2019, accounting for about 14% of total federal spending and 3% of GDP,” said CRS.

 *Sugar in Fruit Juice May Raise Risk of Cancer, Study Finds:

Drinking large amounts of fruit juice may raise your risk of cancer, according to a big study which has found a link between the regular consumption of all kinds of sugary drinks and the likelihood of developing the disease. The study, carried out in France, is the first substantial piece of research to find a specific association between sugar and cancer. Sugary drinks such as colas, lemonade and energy drinks have been linked to obesity, which is a cause of cancer, but the French researchers suggest there could also be other reasons sugar could trigger it.

The study, published in the BMJ, finds the association with cancer is just as strong with fruit juices as it is with colas. “When the group of sugary drinks was split into 100% fruit juices and other sugary drinks, the consumption of both beverage types was associated with a higher risk of overall cancer,” it says.

Cutting down on the amount of sugary drinks we all consume, together with sugar taxes and restrictions on marketing, might help reduce the cancer burden, say the authors. That does not mean nobody should ever drink them. “As usual with nutrition, the idea is not to avoid foods, just to balance the intake,” said Dr Mathilde Touvier, who led the research, from Inserm, the French national institute of health and medical research.

 *Ariana Grande: Seeing Drag Queens Dressed Up as Me Is ‘Better than Winning a Grammy’:

Seeing a man in drag dressed as her is “better than winning a Grammy,” pop music star Ariana Grande said in an interview published Tuesday. “That’s, like, the best thing that’s ever happened to me,” the singer said in an interview with Vogue magazine. Having drag queens portray her establishes her as an iconic “character” in pop culture, Grande said: To those troubled by her image, Grande has a silencing reply: She just likes it. “I like having my funny character that I play,” she explains, “that feels like this exaggerated version of myself. It protects me. But also I love disrupting it for the sake of my fans and making clear that I’m a person—because that’s something I enjoy fighting for. I can’t help disrupt it. I’m incredibly impulsive and passionate and emotional and just reckless. “The music is very personal and very real, but yes, if you can be me for Halloween, if drag queens can dress up as me, then I’m a character. Go to your local drag bar, and you’ll see it. That’s, like, the best thing that’s ever happened to me. It’s better than winning a Grammy.”

The article quotes music Producer Pharrell Williamsdescribing Grande as “an R-rated version of a Disneycharacter.” Asked if she ever feels uncomfortable singing songs with sexually-charged lyrics to “an audience of thousands of nine-year-old girls,” Grande promised the parents of those girls that their kids will have sex: I ask her if it ever feels uncomfortable to gaze out at an audience of thousands of nine-year-old girls while singing a song about having so much coitus that it’s hard to walk straight. “They’re for sure gonna have it. I promise. I promise that your kid’s gonna have sex. So if she asks you what the song’s about, talk about it.”

 *National Park Service Manager Bought $2,297 in Items With Government Charge Card—Then Pawned Them:

National Park Service Facility Manager used a government charge card to buy approximately $2,297 in merchandise that he then pawned, according to a summary of the case released by the Office of the Inspector General for the Department of the Interior. The government employee was sentenced to one day in jail. “The OIG investigated allegations that a National Park Service (NPS) Facility Manager stole NPS funds, abused his purchase card authority, misused a Government Owned Vehicle (GOV), and concealed criminal convictions to gain NPS employment,” said the summary.

“We confirmed the allegations,” said the IG’s summary. “The employee spent approximately $2,975 on his Government purchase card to purchase items he later pawned,” said the summary, which was posted on June 18. “We also learned that the employee leased roll-away dumpsters with Federal funds, partially to discard personal items,” it said. “The employee also regularly used a GOV for personal errands,” it said. “Finally, we found that prior to his employment, the employee falsified his application to the NPS by failing to disclose three criminal convictions. “The employee pleaded guilty to three counts of misdemeanor theft in county court, was sentenced to 1 day in jail, and was ordered to pay full restitution,” it said. “He resigned from the NPS in lieu of termination.”

 *California Becomes First State to Give Health Care to Some Undocumented Migrants:

California has become the first state to offer taxpayer-supported health care to some undocumented migrants after Gov. Gavin Newsom signed the bill into law last week. The new laws, which have previously been described as “crazy” by Donald Trump, will allow around 90,000 low-income adults below the age of 25 to access the state’s Medicaid program, even if they’re undocumented. The new rules are predicted to cost taxpayers around $98 million. Newsom said he plans to further expand coverage to more adults in the years to come.

An Interview with Nicole Brandon, Talented Actress and Motivational Speaker

Q: Thank you so much for speaking to us today, Nicole. So where were you born?
A: Atlantic City, New Jersey

Q: What was your early life like?
A: I had the most unusual childhood of anybody I know. The day I was born, my grandfather had had a heart attack in Philadelphia, so my parents raced from the Atlantic Cityhospital to the hospital in Philadelphia. My family thought that if my grandfather knew that he had a grandchild, he would live, and he did until I was 12, so I guess I saved a life my very first day. I was only about two hours old and I was already in rescue mode.

Q: How do you feel that unusual story relates to how your life operates today?
A: I believe that I was born to do this work, and that’s just the way my life will always operate. I was molded and etched to help humanity.

Q: So, you sense that you’ve always had an idea of what your “mission” is. What would you say that is?
A: I am here as a bridge between the physical and spiritual world. I have the uncanny ability to understand how to be unlimited in a physical body. So that’s why I’m an actress, a trapeze artist, a contortionist, and a martial arts master. I have a physical body that has no limitations whatsoever, and I understand how to be here in absolute freedom and unlimited power, and I want to use that to help people, all people how to live in their bodies and to be free. Free of uncomfortability, free of pain, free of sadness, free of heartache, free of fear, free of constrictions, barriers, walls or hurdles and to trust their body and to trust themselves to reach, and to have it all.
