Illinois Governor JB Pritzker Signed a Bill Requiring Schools LGBTQ Lessons in School. His Family Generously Funds the Transgender Ideology.

Illinois Governor JB Pritzker signed a bill requiring schools to include the positive contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals in their history curriculum. The lessons must be taught before students reach the eighth grade, and pubic schools in the state must include LGBT individuals in history lessons. Illinois is the fifth state to pass such a measure; the other states include California, Colorado, New Jersey, and Oregon. Governor Pritzker’s family is worth approximately $29-billion and is heavily invested in the medical industry. His cousin, James, is a transgender woman known as ‘Jennifer,’ who spends heavily to advance the institutionalization of transgenderism. His family also funds the ACLU and Planned Parenthood, which now are major voices in in the transgender movement. -GEG

Illinois public schools will be required to teach about the contributions of LGBTQ people across the state and the country — under a new law approved by Gov. J.B. Pritzker.

The law, signed by Pritzker last week, mandates that the history curriculum in schools across the state include lessons spotlighting noteworthy lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans, according to the Chicago Tribune.

As part of the new curriculum — set to launch in 2020 — the LGBTQ-focused lessons must be taught before the students reach the eighth grade, according to the report.

All textbooks “must include the roles and contributions of all people protected under the Illinois Human Rights Act and must be non-discriminatory as to any of the characteristics under the Act,” the bill states.

Jeffrey Epstein Reported to Have Died 24 Hours After 2,000 Pages of Court Documents Were Unsealed that Implicated Prominent Men

Jeffrey Epstein is reported to have committed suicide over the weekend by hanging himself. There is extensive evidence that he sexually abused underage girls and used them to blackmail prominent political figures. He had ties to the Israeli Mossad and, as part of his 2008 ‘sweetheart’ plea deal, became an FBI informant. On July 6th, the night that he was arrested, the FBI raided his New York home and seized hundreds of photos of nude females, some of whom appeared underage. There are several ongoing investigations into this matter, but Epstein’s death has removed the primary witness in all of them. -GEG

Summary by JW WIlliams

New York: Convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was discovered dead in his jail cell. Officials reported he committed suicide by hanging. He was placed on suicide watch several weeks ago following an incident that left him with an injury to his neck. It is unknown if he had been attacked or tried to commit suicide. Epstein recently was released from suicide watch, and the guards, who were supposed to check on prisoners every 30 minutes, failed to do so. Supposedly, there is no video of his ‘suicide.’
.
Jeffrey Epstein was accused of blackmailing important men, stealing securities, and running ponzi schemes to support his opulent lifestyle. There is evidence that both Epstein and his alleged madam, Ghislaine Maxwell, were assets of the Israeli Mossad. Epstein was also an informant for the FBI as part of his plea deal in 2008, and former prosecutor Alex Acosta says he was told to back off the case because Epstein “belonged to intelligence.”
.
Epstein’s helicopter was owned by the US State Department and contracted to the private military contractor, Dyncorp International. This enabled the helicopter to bypass border checkpoints and elude law enforcement, leading to the speculation that Epstein’s underage sex ring was knowingly supported by rogue elements within the government. DynCorp is run by Steve Feinberg, who is the head of President Trump’s intelligence advisory board.
.
Epstein was found dead the day after court documents were unsealed that implicated the former Governor of New Mexico Bill Richardson, Prince Andrew, financier Glenn Dubin, former senator George Mitchell, now-deceased MIT scientist Marvin Minsky, attorney Alan Dershowitz, and modeling agent Jean-Luc Brunel in the sex scandal.
.
The court documents came from a 2015 defamation lawsuit brought by alleged Epstein victim, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, against Ghislaine Maxwell. Maxwell settled with Guiffre out of court in 2017. While officials are reportedly investigating potential accomplices, Ghislaine Maxwell has yet to be charged with any crimes. The Manhattan US Attorney said that the investigation into Epstein will continue despite Epstein’s death.
.
On July 6th, the night Epstein was arrested on sex-trafficking charges, the FBI raided his home and said it seized hundreds of photos of nude females, some of whom appeared underage, and that these were evidence of pedophilia. Critics believe that the photos were most likely kept for blackmail purposes.

Joaquin Castro Doxxed Trump Donors and Their Employers, Exposing Them to Unhinged Leftists, to Intimidate Future Contributors


Democrat Texas Representative Joaquin Castro, who chairs the presidential campaign of his twin brother Julian, tweeted the names and employers of 44 San Antonia residents and businesses who maxed out their donations to President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign. he cap on donations from individuals is $2,800, so the list targets affluent citizens, not millionaires. The congressman claims he is targeting voters who “are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders.’” -GEG

On Tuesday, Democratic Texas Rep. Joaquin Castro, who chairs the
presidential campaign of his twin brother Julian, tweeted the names and
employers of more than 40 San Antonians who maxed out their donations to
President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign.

Mind you, the federal maximum is $2,800 per individual, so we’re not
talking about nefarious millionaires and billionaires or political
activists or public figures. The congressman doxed a bunch of regular
citizens whose only sin was displeasing Castro.

The congressman claims
he is targeting voters who “are fueling a campaign of hate that labels
Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders.’” First of all, if Castro disagrees
with his fellow Texans on whether illegal immigrants are “invaders,” he
is free to try to change their minds. Instead he decided to sic every
unhinged progressive activist in Texas on these businesses, which, one
imagines, employ and serve plenty of people in his community.

Then again, Castro has no clue if these individuals support Trump’s
rhetoric on immigration or even if they support his position on the
borders. Maybe some of his victims maxed out because they’re happy with
the unemployment rate or like GOP’s tax policy. Or maybe they see the
election as a binary choice and prefer a demagogic president to a
leftist congressman who feels comfortable doxing his own
constituents? Who knows?

Not that it matters. I may believe that Castro is a lightweight
authoritarian, it still doesn’t mean I should post his family’s business
addresses on Twitter.

Many Democrats like Castro have adopted a political zealotry that
rationalizes basically any tactic they deem is necessary to fight Trump.
This, I guess, now includes intimidation. That’s because the purpose of
tweeting these names wasn’t merely to bully those who have already
donated to Trump, but to warn anyone in his district thinking about
contributing to Trump to consider the potential retaliatory public
attacks on their businesses (or worse.)

Jeffrey Epstein, Former Member of CFR and Trilateral Commission, Heavily Funded Transhumanism Projects – Including His Own Baby Farm


Jeffrey Epstein, former CFR and Trilateral Commission member. generously funded transhuman technology including Harvard University’s Program for Evolutionary Dynamics. Epstein’s projects focus on genetics, neuroscience, robotics, and artificial intelligence, all converging into what is known as “transhumanism”. The goal is to merge humans with machines and extend conscious existence forever. Epstein says his ambition has been to use his 33,000-acre ranch in New Mexico as a base where twenty women at a time would be inseminated with his sperm to begin seeding the Earth with his DNA. -GEG

Jeffrey Epstein is currently infamous for his conviction for soliciting a fourteen-year-old girl for prostitution and for allegedly orchestrating underage “sex slave” orgies at his private Virgin Island mansion, where he purportedly pimped out underage girls to elite political figures such as Prince Andrew, Alan Dershowitz, and probably Bill Clinton as well (he also traveled to Thailand in 2001 with Prince Andrew, probably to indulge in the country’s rampant child sex trade).

But before these sex scandals were the highlight of Epstein’s
celebrity, he was better known not just for his financial prowess, but
also for his extensive funding of biotechnological and evolutionary
science. With his bankster riches, he founded the Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation which established Harvard University’s Program for Evolutionary Dynamics.

Epstein, a former CFR and Trilateral Commission Member,
also sat on the board of Harvard’s Mind, Brain, and Behavior Committee.
He has furthermore been “actively involved in . . . the Theoretical
Biology Initiative at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, the
Quantum Gravity Program at the University of Pennsylvania,” and the Santa Fe Institute,
which “is a transdisciplinary research community that expands the
boundaries of scientific understanding . . . to discover, comprehend,
and communicate the common fundamental principles in complex physical,
computational, biological, and social systems.”

The scope of Epstein’s various science projects spans research into genetics, neuroscience, robotics, computer science, and artificial intelligence (AI). Altogether, the convergence of these science subfields comprises an interdisciplinary science known as “transhumanism”: the artificial “perfection” of human evolution through humankind’s merger with technology. In fact, Epstein partners with Humanity+, a major transhumanism interest group.

Transhumanists believe that technologically “upgrading” humankind into a singularity
will bring about a utopia in which “poor health, the ravages of old age
and even death itself will all be things of the past.” In fact, eminent
transhumanist Ray Kurzweil, chief of engineering at Google, believes that he will become “godlike” as a result of the singularity.

Tens of Thousands of Unopened Bottles of Water Supplies for Puerto Rico Hurricane Victims Was Discovered Rotting in a Field


Hurricanes Maria and Irma struck Puerto Rico in September 2017, resulting in the deaths of 3,000 people. Nearly two years after the disaster, tens of thousands of plastic bottles of water on pallets were discovered in a field. FEMA says the bottles were delivered in 2017 and turned over to the “central government.” It is unclear why the water was abandoned and who is responsible for failing to distribute it to those who needed it. Last month, prosecutors charged six former officials of the Puerto Rican government with embezzling $15-million in hurricane reconstruction money. A local told CBS News “that the government hid those packages [of water] from the people,” adding that many were forced to purchase overpriced water from stores in the wake of the storms. Many people died of dehydration and disease from polluted water in the hurricane’s aftermath.

Last year, there was a similar case of wasted water in Puerto Rico: CNN reported that 20,000 pallets holding 38-million bottles of water were discovered to have been stored, instead of distributed. FEMA reported it delivered the water but it was up to Puerto Rican officials to distribute it. Officials said they received too much water too late, and there was a surplus that they would return, even though there was still a need for clean water.


Here is the story from last year about 38 million bottles of water that was stored, instead of distributed to victims, as broadcast September 12, 2018:

Current article about more water discovered to have been wasted instead of distributed to hurricane victims in need:

Tens of thousands of water bottles meant for the people of Puerto Rico after a pair of hurricanes hit the island in 2017 are sitting unopened on farmland near the city of San Juan nearly two years after the disasters.

Photographs of the water bottles emerged this week after international news agency AFP captured
aerial images of the bottles on what appeared to be a private estate 25
miles west of San Juan. Some of the images showed broken pallets with
the bottles. 

A spokesman from the Federal Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA) confirmed to AFP that the water bottles had been provided
as part of relief for Hurricane Maria, which hit the island in September
2017.

The water was expired and it was assumed that the bottles
are being disposed of, AFP reported. It said the spokesman declined to
say exactly how many water bottles there were, how long they were on the
farm and why they were permitted to expire. 

The matters were “under review by the legal department,” the spokesman said.

Resurfaced Interview from 2018 Features Ilhan Omar (now a US Congresswoman) Saying Americans Should Be “Fearful of White Men”


A video of a 2018 interview with Representative Ilhan Omar shows her saying that Americans should be “more fearful of white men” when asked if she thought conservatives were right to have a legitimate fear of Islam in view of Islamic terror attacks in America, including the 2017 truck attack in New York. Omar said, “I would say our country should be more fearful of white men across our country because they are actually causing most of the deaths within this country, and so if fear was the driving force of policies to keep America safe, Americans safe inside of this country, we should be profiling, monitoring, and creating policies to fight the radicalization of white men.” -GEG

A 2018 interview Rep. Ilhan Omar gave to Al-Jazeera has
resurfaced in which Omar says Americans should be “more fearful of white
men” than potential Islamic terrorists.

Omar was asked if she thought conservatives were right to have a
legitimate fear of Islam given the spate of Islamic terror attacks in
America, including the 2017 truck attack in New York.

“I would say our country should be more fearful of white men across
our country because they are actually causing most of the deaths within
this country, and so if fear was the driving force of policies to keep
America safe, Americans safe inside of this country, we should be
profiling, monitoring, and creating policies to fight the radicalization
of white men,” Omar said in response.

Ilhan Omar contends that Americans “should be more fearful of white men.” pic.twitter.com/ot7PBF96P1

— Molly Prince (@mollyfprince) July 24, 2019

The comments are receiving fresh attention due to Omar’s recent spat
with President Trump and her repeated refusal to denounce Al-Qaeda and
Islamic terrorism.

As we highlighted earlier this week, the Minnesota Congresswoman told
an audience she is “disgusted” to be asked to condemn Al-Qaeda and
female genital mutilation, arguing that merely posing the question alone
is Islamophobic and a “waste of time.”

Jeffrey Epstein Found Injured and in a Fetal Position in NYC Prison Cell


Jeffrey Epstein was found with injuries to his neck, but it is unknown whether he was attacked, tried to commit suicide, or inflicted the injury to himself in order to be transferred to another facility. Epstein holds many secrets that could devastate people in power and who may want to silence him. Critics have linked him to the Israeli Mossad agency, citing his multi-million-dollar business deal with former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, who now is challenging Netanyahu in the upcoming election. Former President Clinton, who said that he didn’t meet Epstein until 2002, received a donation from Epstein in 1993 and hosted him at the White House. -GEG

It looks like a certain intelligence agency is trying to keep the truth about their blackmailing operation from coming out.

#BREAKING Accused pedophile and financier Jeffrey Epstein was found injured and in a fetal position inside his cell at a NYC jail, sources saidhttps://t.co/dULwUeEc63— NBC New York (@NBCNewYork) July 25, 2019

Andrew Weissmann, Named as the Driving Force Behind the Mueller Witch Hunt, Has a History of Using His Office as a Weapon against Political Opponents


Sidney Powell is a former federal prosecutor and author of a book about Enron, the failed energy company. She explains how Andrew Weissmann, the second in command in the Mueller investigation, has a history of using the power of his office to destroy political opponents. Years ago, when Mueller was Director of the FBI, he chose Weissmann to head the Enron Task Force. Powell says Weissmann targeted the Arthur Anderson accounting firm, that employed 85,000 people, and smashed the company by falsely accusing it of destroying evidence and of committing a crime that does not exist. The Supreme Court unanimously overturned the case but, by then, the damage had been done. Powell says Weissmann intimidated witnesses by threatening indictments, created crimes that do not exist, and withheld evidence that could have aided the accused. Weissmann is accused of using the same tactics in the Mueller investigation against Trump. -GEG

FBI Director Christopher A. Wray
was an assistant attorney general in 2004 when he heaped praise on an
ambitious Mafia-tested prosecutor while promoting him to the top of the Justice Department’s high-profile Enron task force.

Mr. Wray specifically lauded Andrew Weissmann for obtaining convictions against two Enron clients: accounting giant Arthur Andersen and executives at banking dynamo Merrill Lynch.

Andersen was finished as a company; four Merrill executives went to prison.

Today, Mr. Weissmann stands as special counsel Robert Mueller’s top gun in a squadron of nearly 20 prosecutors and scores of FBI agents delving into TrumpRussia. Mr. Weissmann is leading the probe into the biggest target to date, Paul Manafort, President Trump’s onetime campaign manager.

How Mr. Weissmann operated over a decade ago offers possible glimpses at how he carries out orders today from his longtime mentor, Mr. Mueller.



He rode into Texas from New York City in 2002 fresh from putting a number of Mafiosos in prison.

By the time he left in 2005, he had rung up some impressive numbers,
such as 22 guilty pleas and millions of dollars in restitution. But he
also suffered historic courtroom losses. And how he won and how he lost
is still the subject of bitter comments from his adversaries in Houston.

“Do not misunderstand my disdain for him with
ineffectiveness or something not to be concerned with,” said Dan
Cogdell, who represented three Enron defendants. “He’s a formable prosecutor. If I’m Donald Trump and I know the backstory of Andrew Weissmann, it’s going to concern me. There is no question about it.”

The backstory: Defense attorneys say Mr. Weissmann bent or broke the rules. As proof, they point to appeals court decisions, exhibits and witness statements.

They say he intimidated witnesses by
threatening indictments, created crimes that did not exist and, in one
case, withheld evidence that could have aided the accused. At one
hearing, an incredulous district court judge looked down at an Enron defendant and told him he was pleading guilty to a wire fraud crime that did not exist.

Weissmann seemed more interested in obtaining convictions than in promoting justice,” said Tom Kirkendall, a Houston lawyer who represented an Enron executive.

Said Mr. Cogdell, a colorful courtroom
performer dubbed a “gunslinger” by the local press, “He’s the most
aggressive prosecutor I’ve ever been up against. He is, if not win at
all cost, he’s win at almost any cost.”

Those convictions for which Mr. Wray offered praise in 2004?

George Nader, Key Cooperating Witness in Mueller Probe, Is Charged with Transporting Child Pornography and Sex Trafficking


George Nader, a representative of the United Arab Emirates who brokered a meeting in 2017 between Blackwater founder, Erik Prince, and a Russian official to establish a line of communication with Moscow, was a key cooperator to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Trump-Russia investigation, which failed to produce proof of collusion with Russia. George Nader has now been indicted on multiple charges of importing child pornography into the US in 2018, and another charge of traveling with a minor boy to engage in illegal sexual activity in 2000. FBI agents found dozens of child-porn videos on Nader’s phones, with some depicting children as young as 3 years old.

George Nader, who was a key witness in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, was hit with new federal charges of sex trafficking for allegedly “engaging in sexual acts” with a 14-year-old boy he transported from Europe. 

An indictment unsealed Friday morning in Eastern District of Virginia also charges Nader with counts of child pornography and obscenity. The charges come on top of separate child-porn charges leveled by the same prosecutors last month. 

Nader pleaded not guilty to all charges during a court appearance Friday.

Nader, a 60-year-old Lebanese-American businessman with deep political and financial ties to the United Arab Emirates, was a key cooperator in Mueller’s probe of foreign influence in the 2016 election. Nader met several times with individuals associated with the Trump campaign throughout the election and into the early days of the administration. He spoke with officials and advisers on matters ranging from a pitch by a foreign firm for the campaign to use social-media manipulation to regime-change in Iran. (He met with Donald Trump Jr. and other campaign advisors about the plan, which included a proposal to use fake avatars to garner support for Trump, but Trump officials deny they ever considered it.)

He also helped broker a key meeting between Erik Prince, the former Blackwater CEO, and Kirill Dmitriev,
the head of one of Russia’s sovereign wealth funds, in the Seychelles
in January 2017. That meeting came under intense scrutiny by Mueller’s
team and was described in its report as one of the ways the Russians
tried to influence the incoming Trump administration.

Federal
prosecutors in Virginia argued last month in court that Nader should be
held in jail before trial, based in part on his prior criminal history.
That history includes a 2003 conviction in the Czech Republic on charges
of abusing minors, including a charge of transporting of a minor boy to
the U.S. for sexual purposes. Federal prosecutors said Nader has had
“hands-on contact with more than a dozen minor boys.” Nader’s lawyers
called the U.S. government’s argument weak because he was later
acquitted of the Czech sex-trafficking charge.

Mexican President Blasts Drug Lord El Chapo’s Life Sentence as ‘Inhumane’


Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman, 62, was found guilty in February of trafficking tons of cocaine, heroin, marijuana and synthetic fentanyl into the US for nearly three decades as the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel. The three-month trial in Colorado detailed grisly killings, a bizarre escape and drugs hidden in jalapeno cans. He was sentenced to life in prison plus 30 years, and he was ordered to pay $12.6 billion, the amount he is believed to have earned through his illegal business. The government has been unable to locate his assets. Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on Thursday blasted Guzman’s life sentence as “inhumane” — echoing comments made by the convicted druglord himself.

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on Thursday blasted Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s life sentence as “inhumane” — echoing comments made by the convicted druglord himself.

“A sentence for life in a hostile jail” would be “hard” and not worth
living, said López Obrador at a morning press conference, according to
Reuters.

He did, however, call Guzman out for his murderous ways and drug-fueled life of crime.

“It’s something very painful,” said López Obrador, adding that had “many victims in mind.”

Trump Rage-Tweets “Radical Left Democrats” – “If You’re Not Happy Here, Leave!”


President Trump rage-tweeted against radical Democrat women in Congress, telling them to leave if they are not happy in America. He accused them of wanting open borders and wrote that migrant detention centers are not “concentration camps.”He quoted with scorn Ilhan Omar’s comment that on the 9/11 attack, ‘”Some people did something.” He seemed to target Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib, in addition to Omar when he commented that the US will never be a socialist or communist country. The four freshman Congresswomen responded by holding a press conference over the tweets and called Trump a ‘racist.’ -GEG

Much like the great majority of Americans (judging by the latest polls), President Trump appears to have had enough with the “Radical Left Democrats” constant spewing of seemingly anti-American sentiment.

In a triple-down on his sentiment over the weekend (and statement
this morning), the president has just rage-tweeted the same message: “If you are not happy here, you can leave,” but that was far from all he said…

“We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country,” he began, adding that certain people HATE our Country… They are anti-Israel, pro Al-Qaeda, and comment on the 9/11 attack, ‘some people did something’,” seemingly focusing in on AOC and her squad.

“Radical Left Democrats want Open Borders, which means drugs, crime, human trafficking, and much more…” he raged, concluding his brief tweetstorm with a reminder of his achievements and to “Keep America Great.

Report: Federal Attorney Alex Acosta Was Told that Jeffrey Epstein ‘Belonged to Intelligence’ and to ‘Leave it Alone’


Labor Secretary Alex Acosta who, as US Attorney in Miami, oversaw the 2008 ‘sweetheart’ plea deal with alleged sex trafficker, Jeffrey Epstein, reportedly told the Trump transition team he had been told to back off, that Epstein’s activities were not to be investigated. “I was told Epstein ‘belonged to intelligence’ and to leave it alone.” Many critics, including Ann Coulter, have speculated that Epstein, a former math teacher who is now reported to be worth $2-billion, became wealthy by using young girls to blackmail powerful people, citing a victims’ claim that he asked the girls to bring back reports on their liaisons, which sometimes were filmed. Coulter also pointed out that it is hard to believe that Epstein acquired his fortune as a hedge-fund manager. -GEG

Best-selling author Vicky Ward reported Tuesday that Alexander Acosta told the Trump transition team when asked about his handling of Jeffrey Epstein’s case that “I was told Epstein ‘belonged to intelligence’ and to leave it alone.”

From Vicky Ward, The Daily Beast, “Jeffrey Epstein’s Sick Story Played Out for Years in Plain Sight”:

Epstein’s name, I was told, had been raised by the Trump
transition team when Alexander Acosta, the former U.S. attorney in Miami
who’d infamously cut Epstein a non-prosecution plea deal back in 2007,
was being interviewed for the job of labor secretary. The plea deal put a
hard stop to a separate federal investigation of alleged sex crimes
with minors and trafficking.

“Is the Epstein case going to cause a problem [for confirmation
hearings]?” Acosta had been asked. Acosta had explained, breezily,
apparently, that back in the day he’d had just one meeting on the
Epstein case. He’d cut the non-prosecution deal with one of Epstein’s
attorneys because he had “been told” to back off, that Epstein was above
his pay grade. “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. (The Labor Department had no comment when asked about this.)

[…] In 2007 and 2008, as the FBI prepared a 53-page indictment that
would charge Epstein with sex crimes, Epstein’s powerful legal team
played the influence card.

After the one meeting with then-U.S. Attorney Acosta, where presumably
“intelligence” was mentioned, the indictment was shelved and, instead,
Epstein signed a non-prosecution agreement with federal prosecutors,
pleading guilty to one count of solicitation of prostitution and one
count of procurement of minors for prostitution, which earned him a
cushy 13 months in county jail, from where he was allowed to leave to
work at his office and go for walks.
