Ghislaine Maxwell has been sent to a Florida prison where she will serve her 20-year sentence for helping billionaire sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein abuse underage girls, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal.

The disgraced socialite has been moved to FCI Tallahassee, a low-security prison in the Sunshine State, near where she committed her crimes.

The Bureau of Prisons website indicates Maxwell will be eligible for release on July 17 2037.

The choice of prison by the BOP is against the recommendation of Judge Alison Nathan, who oversaw Maxwell’s trial for recruiting and trafficking underage girls for the late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Judge Nathan asked the BOP – following a request from Maxwell’s lawyers – to send her to FCI Danbury in Connecticut.

However the BOP has ultimate authority and decided against sending Maxwell there.

Despite this Maxwell, 60, will likely welcome the news as she has complained bitterly about her treatment at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, where she has been held since her arrest in July 2020.

Her lawyers have accused prison authorities of breaching her rights by shining a torch in her cell every 15 minutes and subjected her to invasive searches while filming her at all hours.

Maxwell was convicted after a trial in December in which her victims testified that she lured them to Epstein when they were as young as 14 years old.

During the sentencing Maxwell said she wanted to ‘acknowledge’ the pain of her victims but stopped short of an apology.

Her lawyers have already filed a notice saying they will appeal both the conviction and the sentence.

That Maxwell serves her sentence in Florida has a certain irony as it was there that her criminal conduct occurred.

Oxford-educated Maxwell was found guilty on five of six counts, the most serious for sex trafficking minors.

The charges stemmed from crimes committed against four women between 1994 and 2004 mostly at Epstein’s mansion in Palm Beach, a five hour drive from her new prison.

FCI Tallahassee, which opened in 1938, has a population of 755 inmates and only houses women. The FCI stands for Federal Correctional Institute.

According to the prison handbook, Maxwell will be woken up at 6am every day and be issued an inmate identification card that she must wear at all times.

Each period of the day is announced over the tannoy and includes exercise sessions and work periods.

Staff may search inmates’ cells at any time for contraband or stolen property and each prison shares a cell with one other person.

The prison handbook says that the only approved uniform is: khaki pants, khaki shirt, underwear, bra, socks, and authorized shoes.

A khaki dress is also permitted.

Maxwell will be allowed to wear a plain wedding band, however her marriage to former tech entrepreneur Scott Borgerson is over and they are thought to be in the process of divorcing.

Upon arrival, Maxwell was issued basic items like deodorant, a bar of sap, socks, bottle of shampoo, toothpaste and a towel.

While at the MDC Maxwell had already impressed other inmates by teaching them yoga and English – she will likely continue to do so in her new prison.

According to one prison consultant, Zoukis Consulting Group, yoga is available to inmates at FCI Tallahassee as well as pilates, weights, softball, flag football and frisbee – English is also taught for those who want to learn.

Maxwell will be able to keep herself entertained by taking part in the prison talent show or watching movies.

There is also a track for running – Maxwell is known to be a keen jogger.

Maxwell will be able to continue learning Russian – her lawyers have said she started doing so in the MDC to keep herself entertained – in the recreational library.

Among the apprenticeships that Maxwell can do are: electrician, baker, horticulturist and plumber, though it is not clear which local companies she would potentially work for.

Cosmetology is also offered as a trade for inmates to learn, a pursuit which may include massage. Maxwell’s convictions were based on underage girls being brought to Epstein for sexualized massages.

FCI Tallahassee has suffered controversy in the past and in 2007 six guards were convicted for a sex-for-contraband scandal.

The guards would exchange items like gum, perfume, makeup and bras for sex with women inside.

In 2021 the BOP settled a lawsuit in which 15 women alleged sexual abuse by corrections officers at the facility.

Notable inmates at FCI Tallahassee include the terrorist Colleen LaRose and Earth Liberation Front member Chelsea Gerlach.

The facility in Danbury was expected to be where Maxwell would serve her sentence after the request from her lawyers during sentencing.

During sentencing Maxwell’s lawyer Bobbi Sternheim said: ‘We request that Ms. Maxwell be designated, based on a recommendation by the Court, to the BOP facility, the women’s facility in Danbury, and also a recommendation that she be enrolled in the FIT program, which is the Female Integrated Treatment program, to address past familial and other trauma’.

Judge Nathan said: ‘I recommend to the Bureau of Prisons consideration of placement in Danbury and consideration of eligibility for enrollment in the FIT program’.

The FIT program would have allowed Maxwell to be part of a ‘therapeutic community’ that will help her understand how her own abusive father shaped her life.

Workshops would have included ‘Trauma in Life’ and ‘Seeking Safety’ so she could process the impact of being abused by her father, the late British press baron Robert Maxwell.

In court, her lawyers tried to argue that Robert’s abusive behavior around his children made her ‘vulnerable’ when she met Epstein around the time of her father’s mysterious death in 1991.

And prior to her sentencing last month, Maxwell made a public statement expressing remorse for her actions.

‘I realize I have been convicted of assisting Jeffrey Epstein to commit these crimes,’ she said. ‘My association with Epstein will permanently stain me. It is the biggest regret of my life that I ever met him.’

She added that Epstein ‘fooled all of those in his orbit’ and claimed she, herself, was a victim of his.

She had also written in a memo prior to the sentencing that a troubled childhood made her vulnerable to commit such heinous acts after her father mysteriously died in 1991.

But she appeared to have have replaced one controlling, manipulative father with a nearly identical man – Epstein – who she dated before becoming the boss of his sex trafficking organization.

Before Maxwell spoke in court last month, she was forced to confront her sex trafficking victims as they gave dramatic testimony.

Annie Farmer, Sarah Ransome, Elizabeth Stein and one woman known only as Kate read their heartbreaking victim impact statements where they pleaded for the judge to impose the longest possible sentence and demanded Maxwell spend the rest of her life in prison.

‘I was nothing more than a sex toy with a heartbeat and soul used to entertain Epstein, Maxwell and others,’ Ransome said, sharing photos of herself in a hospital bed after she tried to kill herself when the trauma of the sexual abuse became unbearable.

Ransome said in her victim statement, ‘On one visit to the island, the sexual demands, degradation and humiliation ensued me to try to escape by jumping off a cliff into shark-infested waters. I was caught by Maxwell and company moments before jumping.

‘At the time, that extremely risky escape seemed more appealing than being raped one more time,’ she said.

‘Maxwell is today the same woman I met almost 20 years ago – incapable of compassion or common human decency,’ Ransome added. ‘Sentencing her to the rest of her life in prison will not change her, but it will give survivors a slight sense of justice.’

Farmer, meanwhile, fought back tears as she asked the judge to take into account the ‘ongoing suffering of the many women she abused and exploited.

‘Judge Nathan, I hope when you consider the appropriate prison sentence for the role Maxwell played in this sex-trafficking operation, you take into account the ongoing suffering of the many women she abused and exploited as we will continue to live with the memories of the ways she harmed us,’ Farmer said.

‘I hope you weigh the systemic effects of the crimes she perpetrated – the ways that our family members, romantic partners and friends have been hurt through our suffering.

‘I ask you to bear in mind how Maxwell’s unwillingness to acknowledge her crimes, her lack of remorse, and her repeated lies about her victims created the need for many of us to engage in a long fight for justice that has felt like a black hole sucking in our precious time, energy, and well-being for much too long now.

‘These things cannot be replaced.’

After the sentencing Farmer slammed Maxwell’s ‘very hollow’ apology.

‘It felt very powerful to finally have a chance to speak and have my voice on the record and say how her crimes impacted people and myself,’ Farmer said.

‘Her statement felt like a very hollow apology to me. she did not take responsibility for her crimes that she committed, and it felt like once more than she was trying to do something that benefitted her and not at all about the harm that she caused.’

Stein revealed she had to have an abortion after getting raped ‘countless times,’ and Kate said Maxwell’s ‘lack of remorse and her blatant refusal to take responsibility is her final insult. She is not sorry and she will do it again.’

Kate said that women ‘must take a stand of zero tolerance to those who use their power to groom and traffic the vulnerable.’

‘Every single child must have their innocence defended,’ Kate says. ‘No person should be shielded from the consequences of their actions.’

‘Maxwell’s lack of remorse and her blatant refusal to take responsibility is her final insult. She is not sorry and she will do it again.

‘Today is not a happy day. I take no pleasure in being part of a world where this is necessary. I am proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with these brave women and to do what is necessary to stop Ghislaine.’

Fellow victim Virginia Roberts was not in court, but her lawyer Sigrid McCawley read her statement.

‘Ghislaine, 22 years ago, in the summer of 2000, you spotted me at the Mar-a-Lago Hotel in Florida, and you made a choice,’ McCawley reads from Giuffre’s statement.

‘You chose to follow me and procure me for Jeffrey Epstein. Just hours later, you and he abused me together for the first time. Together, you damaged me physically, mentally, sexually and emotionally. Together, you did unthinkable things that still have a corrosive impact on me to this day.’

‘When you did that, Ghislaine, you changed the course of our lives forever,’ she wrote.

During the trial, prosecutors called 24 witnesses to give jurors a picture of life inside Epstein’s homes – a subject of public fascination and speculation ever since his 2006 arrest in Florida in a child sex case.

A housekeeper testified he was expected to be ‘blind, deaf and dumb’ about the private lives of Epstein, a financier who cultivated friendships with influential politicians and business tycoons.

Pilots took the witness stand and dropped the names of luminaries – Britain’s Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton, Donald Trump – who flew on Epstein’s private jets.

Jurors also saw physical evidence like a folding massage table once used by Epstein and a ‘black book’ that listed contact information for some of the victims under the heading ‘massages’.

There were bank records showing he had transferred $30.7 million to Maxwell.

Additionally, prosecutors produced a 58-page household manual covering every single aspect of running the house in Palm Beach that they indicated Maxwell had written. There were dozens of checklists for each area of the house, instructions on when to replace the toothpaste and what brands of creams to buy.

One instruction to all household staff that was seized on by the prosecution read: ‘You see nothing, hear nothing, say nothing’.

But the core of the prosecution was the testimony of four women who said they were victimized by Maxwell and Epstein at young ages.

Three testified using first names or pseudonyms to protect their privacy: Jane, a television actress; Kate, a former model from Great Britain; and Carolyn, now a mom recovering from drug addiction.

The fourth was Farmer, who chose to use her real name after being vocal about her allegations in recent years.

The most gut wrenching, though, was Carolyn who testified that she was one of several underprivileged teens who lived near Epstein’s Florida home in the early 2000s and took up an offer to give massages in exchange for $100 bills.

Maxwell made all the arrangements, Carolyn told the jury, even though she knew the girl was only 14 at the time.

Jane said in 1994, when she was only 14, she was instructed to follow Epstein into a pool house at the Palm Beach estate, where he masturbated on her.

Jane, meanwhile, told the jury: ‘I was frozen in fear’, adding that the assault was the first time she had ever seen a penis. She also directly accused Maxwell of participating in her abuse.

Maxwell’s lawyer asked Jane why it had taken so long to come forward.

She responded: ‘I was scared. I was embarrassed, ashamed. I didn’t want anybody to know any of this about me’.

Kate also said she was recruited by Maxwell in London in 1994 when she was 17 and described in vivid detail how she invited her round for tea and then asked her back to give Epstein a massage.

In chilling testimony Kate described how Maxwell closed the door behind her as a naked Epstein lay on a massage table in front of her. After one such encounter Maxwell told her: ‘Did you have fun? Was it good?’

Farmer described how she was lured to Epstein’s ranch in New Mexico at the age of 16 with the promise there would be dozens of other bright students that he wanted to help.

Instead it was just her and Maxwell proceeded to massage her breasts before Epstein got into bed with her.

Summing up her experience, Farmer said: ‘I think this was all a pattern of them working on confusing my boundaries and malign me question myself about what was right and what was not right with the ultimate goal of sexually abusing me’.

Jurors deliberated for five full days before finding Maxwell guilty of five of six counts.

In court Maxwell often hugged her lawyers appeared in good health despite claims from her lawyers she had been losing weight and losing hair due to the grim conditions in prison pre-trial.

She declined to testify, telling the court: ‘You honor, the government has not proved its case beyond a reasonable doubt so there is no reason to testify’.

The true number of Epstein’s victims may never be known but the fund set up to pay compensation to them paid out $121million to 150 women around the world.

Most of the victim impact statements were released ahead of sentencing and they were blistering in their condemnation of Maxwell.

They included Virginia Roberts, who earlier this year settled a lawsuit with Prince Andrew for a reported $12m over claims that she was forced to have sex with him three times when she was 17.

According to Roberts, Maxwell recruited her when she was 16 at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in Florida.

In her victim impact statement reads that Maxwell and Epstein did ‘unthinkable things’ to her.

The statement says: ‘Without question, Jeffrey Epstein was a terrible pedophile.

‘But I never would have met Jeffrey Epstein if not for you. For me, and for so many others, you opened the door to hell. And then, Ghislaine, like a wolf in sheep’s clothing, you used your femininity to betray us, and you led us all through it.

‘Ghislaine, you deserve to spend the rest of your life in a jail cell. You deserve to be trapped in a cage forever, just like you trapped your victims.’

Farmer’s victim impact statement reads: ‘I remember sitting at my desk in a Houston hospital physically shaking after seeing the photo of Maxwell with Virginia Giuffre and Prince Andrew because it became clear to me how their scheme had continued’.

Sarah Ransome, a former model from South Africa who grew up in Scotland, said that Maxwell and Epstein turned her into ‘nothing more than a sex toy with a heartbeat’.

While trying to escape from Epstein’s private island in the Caribbean she tried to jump off a cliff but was found by Maxwell before she could.

Ransome wrote: ‘Maxwell was his right hand woman. She was the Five Star General of several recruiters and many others who provided the means and cover for Epstein’s predation.

‘Epstein and Maxwell were masters at finding young, vulnerable girls and young women to exploit. Like Hotel California, you could blindly check into the Epstein-Maxwell dungeon of sexual hell but you could never leave.

‘Jeffrey and Ghislaine made sure of that’.

    Actress Anne Heche Boozed in Podcast Dropped Hours Before Horrific Crash

    Published

    on

    Anne Heche was reportedly drinking vodka and downing wine coolers in a podcast dropped hours before the actress drove her vehicle into a garage of an apartment building, reversed, and then drove into a Los Angeles home, setting it ablaze.

    Heche sustained severe burns on her body and was said to be in stable condition as of one day after the crash.

    “We each have a bottle in front of us because our friends sent us a bottle Re:Find!” the actress reportedly said on the “Better Together” podcast. Re:Find is a type of vodka. “And we are drinking it — with wine chasers,” Heche later added.

    The “Six Days Seven Nights” actress was apparently slurring her words throughout the podcast, according to TMZ reporting. She also told listeners she was “rocked” by a “very bad day” and alluded to suffering “no good, very bad days.”

    TMZ reported that the podcast was posted hours before Heche drove into the Los Angeles home.

    The actress’ publicist has insisted the podcast was taped in advance, the New York Post noted.

    The Post added that a bottle of Re:Find vodka appears to be in a photo of Heche’s busted vehicle.

    In video obtained by TMZ, Heche’s blue Mini Cooper is seen near a garage of an apartment complex, and it seems the actress is speaking to residents of the complex. A male voice repeatedly asks Heche to get out of the car, and the actress responds, “no, sir,” video suggests.

    The vehicle in the video then reverses and speeds off.

    Video from a home security camera shows the Mini Cooper flying at high speeds down a street before the fiery crash into a home.

    Roy Morgen, a man who witnessed the crash, says the woman who rents the home, identified as Lynne Mishele, barely made it out alive, according to CBS News. The actress barreled into the room the woman was sitting in.

    “She couldn’t get to the person in the car she told me, cause of all the damage,” Morgen told CBSLA. “All the things that collapsed, she was stuck sort of in the back part of the house.”

    The woman who owns the home was too emotional to speak on camera, but told CBSLA through tears that she’s devastated for her tenant.

    A GoFundMe for Mishele has since been started by her neighbors.

    “Lynne lives with her beautiful pups Bree and Rueban, and tortoise Marley in the Mar Vista home that was destroyed this week by a car driving into the home at a high rate of speed, catching the house on fire,” neighbors John and Jennifer Durands posted. “Lynne and her family very narrowly escaped physical harm, and for that we are very, very grateful.”

    Cheney Takes Shot at DeSantis; Admits She Likes Working with Democrats More Than Republicans

    Published

    on

    Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) took a shot at Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) in an interview with The New York Times published Sunday where she also admitted that she liked to work with her Democrat colleagues more than her Republican ones.

    Cheney said that she “would find it very difficult” to support DeSantis in a general election against a Democrat if DeSantis becomes the 2024 GOP nominee for president.

    “I think that Ron DeSantis has lined himself up almost entirely with Donald Trump, and I think that’s very dangerous,” Cheney said.

    Cheney also said that she prefers working with her Democrat women in Congress than Republican women.

    “I would much rather serve with Mikie Sherrill and Chrissy Houlahan and Elissa Slotkin than Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert, even though on substance certainly I have big disagreements with the Democratic women I just mentioned,” Cheney said. “But they love this country, they do their homework and they are people that are trying to do the right thing for the country.”

    The report noted that Cheney’s chances of holding onto her seat in the upcoming primary election next week are slim at best as polls show Cheney losing to primary challenger Harriet Hageman by more than 20 points.

    Cheney recently told CNN that she does not expect to lose in her primary race but that losing may end up being the price that she pays for standing up to Trump.

    “If the cost of standing up for the Constitution is losing the House seat, then that’s a price I’m willing to pay,” Cheney said.

    Some Republicans who might agree with Cheney’s goals have stated that she is going about trying to achieve them the wrong way.

    “It depends on if you want to go out in a blaze of glory and be ineffective or if you want to try to be effective,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said. “I respect her but I wouldn’t have made the same choice.”

    DeSantis blasted Cheney back in February over her work in targeting her own party by working with Democrats on the January 6 committee.

    “Cheney is totally off the rails with her nonsense,” DeSantis said. “And I think she’s not really a Republican in terms of what she’s doing. We want people that are going to fight the left. And that’s what we need to do in this country.”

    “That’s what we’re doing in Florida, standing up for people’s freedoms,” DeSantis continued. “We’re opposing wokeness. We’re opposing all these things. To act like the main issue in this country is things that happened over a year ago, I can tell you in Florida that’s not what Floridians are concerned about. They’re concerned about inflation and gas prices.”

    “So I think focusing on the issues and showing that we stand for things that matter to people is the way forward,” DeSantis concluded. “To have a vendetta against Donald Trump and to constantly be bringing this up is just not something that I think Republican voters are interested in.”

    WATCH: Pink Floyd Founder Doules Down on Decision to Call Biden a ‘War Criminal’ in Wild CNN Interview

    Published

    on

    Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters believes Joe Biden is a ‘war criminal’ who is ‘fueling the fire in Ukraine.’

    Waters, 78, who is currently on a solo tour, branded Biden with the provocative title during a montage played at his rock show.

    The British musician got into a heated debate with CNN host Michael Smerconish over the weekend after the journalist questioned Waters’ decision to include Biden in the provocative segment of his show.

    Waters justified including Biden in his war criminal montage by saying the US president committed a ‘huge crime’ by not encouraging Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to negotiate and put an end to ‘this horrific, horrendous war.’

    The pair also argued over America’s role in the Russia-Ukraine conflict, as well as the ongoing tension between China and Taiwan.

    Waters believes the US has overstepped by involving itself in these foreign affairs and is pushing ‘liberator propaganda.’

    Amid his highly political This Is Not a Drill Tour, Waters sat down with Smerconish to discuss the messages depicted during the concert.

    The CNN host began the interview by probing Waters about the ‘war criminal’ label he slapped Biden with.

    ‘Well, he’s fueling the war in the Ukraine,’ the Pink Floyd co-founder responded. ‘That is a huge crime. Why won’t the United States of America encourage Zelensky to negotiate, obviating the need for this horrific, horrendous war?’

    Smerconish hit back, accusing Waters of ‘blaming the party who got invaded,’ however the musician countered by accusing NATO of forcing Russia’s hand.

    ‘Well, any war, when did it start? What you need to do is look at the history, and you can say, ‘Well, it started on this day.” You could say it started in 2008,’ Waters argued.

    ‘This war is basically about the action and reaction of NATO pushing right up to the Russian border, which they promised they wouldn’t do when [Mikhail] Gorbachev negotiated the withdrawal of the USSR from the whole of Eastern Europe.’

    Smerconish suggested the US has a history of taking on the role of global ‘liberator,’ which Waters immediately dismissed.

    ‘You got into World War II because of Pearl Harbor. You were completely isolationists,’ the musician alleged.

    ‘Thank god the Russians had already won the bloody war by then. Twenty-three million Russians died, protecting you and me from the Nazi menace.’

    He also addressed the ongoing conflict between China and Taiwan, which saw heightened tensions after US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made a surprise visit to the self-ruled island nation.

    Pelosi issued support for the nation and vowed China ‘would not isolate Taiwan’ by preventing US officials from traveling there. Her remarks came as Beijing increased its military intimidation and launched ballistic missiles towards Taiwan.

    ‘I would suggest that you… go away and read a bit more, and try to figure out what the US would do if the Chinese were putting nuclear armed missiles into Mexico and Canada,’ Waters told Smerconish.

    The journalist hit back: ‘The Chinese are too busy encircling Taiwan as we speak.’

    Waters, unamused by the response, said: ‘Taiwan is part of China. That has been absolutely accepted by the whole of international community since 1948. If you don’t know that you aren’t reading enough.

    ‘You are believing your side’s propaganda. You can’t have a conversation about human rights and Taiwan without actually doing the reading.’

    ‘The Chinese didn’t invade Iraq and kill a million people in 2013,’ Waters added. ‘Who have the Chinese invaded and slaughtered?’

    ‘Their own,’ Smerconish replied, seemingly referring to the Uyghurs and other mostly-Muslim populations that Beijing has placed in ‘re-education camps,’ subjected forced sterilization and forced label.

    Waters slammed Smerconish’s response, saying: ‘Bullocks! That’s absolute nonsense! Absolute nonsense!’

    The musician’s comments sparked backlash on Twitter, with many suggesting his allegations were completely ridiculous.

    ‘What the Division Bell is Roger Waters on?’ Alex Bristow, deputy director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute’s Defense, Strategy and National Security Program tweeted. ‘He’s clearly been living on The Dark Side of the Moon.

    ‘Taiwan has never been ruled by communist China.’

    Lahav Harkov, Diplomatic Correspondent at The Jerusalem Post, said: ‘Rule of thumb: Anything Roger Waters says about geopolitics is wrong.’

    Ohio Man Executes 4 Neighbors – Posts Insane Facebook Rant Claiming They Used ‘Telepathy’ to Control Him

    Published

    on

    A convicted burglar was arrested late Saturday night after he executed four of his neighbors over ‘mind control.’

    Stephen Marlow, 39, fatally shot four of his neighbors in Butler Township, Ohio before fleeing to Kansas where he was arrested by the FBI.

    It is unclear if Marlow knew his victims personally.

    Marlow posted a Facebook rant before the murders and accused his victims of using telepathy to control his mind.

    “I will be launching the first counter-attack against mind control in human history,” Marlow said in a video message addressed to his family.

    “I want to be very clear, this will not be an active shooter event. I will be executing some of the people responsible for activating active shooters,” he said. “If I happen to survive, please visit me in prison, only to see the same man you’ve almost known. I will gladly die to expose this.”

    “If I can help another targeted individual fight back against telepathy, then the sacrifice will be worth it,’ he added.

    WATCH:

     

    Marlow murdered Clyde Knox, 82, and wife Eva Knox, 78.

    Marlow also executed Sarah Anderson 41, and her 15-year-old daughter Kayla.

    The Daily Mail reported:

    A convicted burglar was arrested for murdering an elderly couple, a mother and her 15 year-old daughter then taking to Facebook to claim they’d been controlling his mind by using telepathy.

    Stephen Marlow ranted after he allegedly killed Clyde Knox, 82, Knox’s wife Eva, 78, Sarah Anderson, 41, and Anderson’s daughter Kayla, 15, in Butler Township, Ohio on Friday.

    Officers were called to the Ohio neighborhood shortly before noon Friday on a report of shots fired and found four victims with gunshot wounds at multiple crime scenes, police said.

    The Dayton Daily News reported that the victims were found in two separate homes where they lived, near the home owned by Marlow’s parents.

    All four victims were pronounced dead at the scene.

    The Knoxes had shared 60 years of marriage at the time of their death, according to an obituary, while a Go Fund Me page has raised nearly $34,000 for the funeral costs of the Andersons.

    Police had warned anyone seeing Marlow, who had fled, to ‘not approach him as he is still likely to be armed and dangerous.’

    Porter called the shootings ‘the first violent crime in this neighborhood in recent memory’ and said investigators were trying to determine a motive and whether ‘mental illness played any role.’

    Chairman of the Lancet’s COVID Commission ‘Pretty Convinced’ Pandemic’s Origin from ‘US Lab Biotechnology’

    Published

    on

    The chairman of the Lancet’s COVID-19 Commission has come forward to say that he is “pretty convinced” that the pandemic’s origin is from “U.S. lab biotechnology.” He also warns that even more dangerous research is happening right now – which could be why governments don’t seem to be interested in investigating the origins of COVID-19.

    Jeffrey Sachs is the director of the Center for Sustainable Development at Columbia University, the president of the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network, winner of the 2015 Blue Planet Prize, a best-selling author, and a Chairman of the Lancet’s COVID-19 Commission.

    In November 2020, Sachs assembled a task force for the prestigious medical journal to determine the origins of COVID-19. He hand-selected Dr. Peter Daszak – the president of EcoHealth Alliance – to be the chairman of the task force. However, Daszak recused himself from the investigation in June 2021, following accusations of a conflict of interest.

    Daszak had deep ties to the Wuhan Institute of Virology and funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars of National Institutes of Health funding to the Chinese lab. Since the beginning of the pandemic, Daszak has vehemently argued that COVID-19 is a zoonotic disease that jumped from animals to humans. Furthermore, he vociferously argued that suggesting that COVID-19 originated from a lab leak is a baseless conspiracy theory.

    By September 2021, the task force organized by the Lancet’s COVID-19 Commission was disbanded because of EcoHealth’s conflict-of-interest issues.

    Sachs said at the time, “I just didn’t want a task force that was so clearly involved with one of the main issues of this whole search for the origins, which was EcoHealth Alliance.”

    Last week, Sachs told Current Affairs that he appointed Daszak to the task force dedicated to discovering the origins of COVID-19 because he said to himself, “Well, here’s a guy who is so connected, he would know.”

    Sachs added, “And then I realized he was not telling me the truth. And it took me some months, but the more I saw it, the more I resented it.”

    Sachs revealed that he disbanded the task force because other members were “part of this thing.”

    He noted that the NIH had been hiding documents from the public – which were later revealed by a Freedom of Information Act request. Emails exposed by a FOIA request revealed that officials with the NIH and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases were concerned that EcoHealth could be conducting gain-of-function experiments at the Wuhan lab.

    Sachs noted that Daszak should have informed him that EcoHealth Alliance was “manipulating the viruses.”

    Sachs said that he requested a research proposal from Daszak, but the EcoHealth head allegedly balked, “No, my lawyer says I can’t give it to you.”

    A video went viral last month featuring Sachs proclaiming that “after two years of intensive work,” he is “pretty convinced” that COVID-19 originated from “U.S. lab biotechnology, not out of nature.”

    “So it’s a blunder in my view of biotech, not an accident of a natural spillover,” he said. “We don’t know for sure, I should be absolutely clear.”

    Sachs noted, “But there’s enough evidence that it should be looked into. And it’s not being investigated, not in the United States, not anywhere. And I think for real reasons that they don’t want to look underneath the rug.”

    In the interview with Current Affairs editor Nathan Robinson, Sachs suggested that scientists were “creating a narrative” of COVID’s origins early in the pandemic by collectively claiming that COVID-19 naturally originated from the Wuhan wet market without definitive evidence.

    Sachs asked, “Did we find an animal? No. Do we have an explanation of where that furin cleavage site came in? No. We don’t have an explanation of the timing, which doesn’t quite look right.”

    He accused health officials and the media of pulling a “kind of misdirection” since February 2020.

    Sachs believes the laboratory hypothesis is “very plausible.”

    “The alternative that is the right one to look at is part of a very extensive research program that was underway from 2015 onward, funded by the NIH, by Tony Fauci, in particular NIAID, and it was to examine the spillover potential of SARS-like viruses,” Sachs told Robinson.

    Sachs suggested that COVID-19 may have come from gain-of-function research, “There was a lot of research underway in the United States and China on taking SARS-like viruses, manipulating them in the laboratory, and creating potentially far more dangerous viruses.”

    “We know that at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the scientists there had been trained by American scientists to use advanced bioengineering methodologies,” Sachs explained. “And in particular, we have scientists in North Carolina, Texas, and so forth who do this kind of research, believe in it, argue for it, and say that they don’t want any regulations on it and so on. And they were in close contact with Wuhan Institute of Virology, and they were part of a joint research group that was stitched together by something called EcoHealth Alliance.”

    Sachs described EcoHealth Alliance as a “vehicle for funding from the U.S. government, especially from the National Institutes of Health, and especially from Tony Fauci’s unit, the NIAID.”

    Sachs said Dr. Anthony Fauci and the NIH “haven’t shown us anything” about possible research at the Wuhan lab.

    “So you saw a narrative being created,” he continued. “And the scientists are not acting like scientists. Because when you’re acting like a scientist, you’re pursuing alternative hypotheses.”

    Robinson asked Sachs why governments aren’t vigorously investigating the origins of a disease that has killed more than 6.4 million people in less than three years.

    Sachs responded, “There are at least two reasons why they might be doing what they’re doing. One is, as you say, the implications are huge. Imagine if this came out of a lab. And we have, by some estimates, about 18 million dead worldwide from this. That’s not the official count. But that’s the estimated excess mortality from COVID. Well, the implications of that—the ethical, the moral, the geopolitical—everything is enormous.”

    The chairman of the Lancet’s COVID-19 Commission added, “But there’s a second matter that is really important, too. One thing that is rather clear to me is that there is so much dangerous research underway right now under the umbrella of biodefense or other things that we don’t know about, that is not being properly controlled.”

    He suggested that governments could be saying, “Don’t poke your nose into that.”

    On Saturday, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) said, “The fact that virtually no one in Washington DC wants to investigate the origins of COVID-19 should tell you all you need to know about the origins of COVID-19.”

    JUSTICE: Vigilantes Burn ‘Pedophile’ Alive After He Was Accused of Rape and Murder of Girl, 6

    on

    A lynch mob burned a suspected pedophile alive after he was accused of raping and killing a six-year-old girl in a gruesome act of jungle justice.

    Alfredo Roblero was accused of killing and raping the child, named locally as Jarid.

    He was then beaten and tied to a big red pole where he sits and is berated by the mob in the small village near Cacahoatan, southern Mexico.

    They then throw him onto the grass and kick him in the head before his hands are again tied as he struggles.

    Petrol was poured over his body and set alight.

    The last of three sickening video clips shows the moment Roblero is thrown across the dirt and grass, beaten while on the ground, tied and burned alive in a garden.

    The brutal clip shows the hogtied man writhing around in a blue hoody and jeans as three-foot-high yellow flames eat his body.

    He can be heard shrieking and screaming in agony above the crowds’ whistles and jeers as they watch him suffer and die.

    The girl’s aunt allegedly tried to take the suspect to the police beforehand, but the angry mob of villagers told her that he was not going to leave the community alive.

    Jarid was reported as missing on Thursday and her body was found the next day.

    Police later arrived at the scene but were unable to save the suspect’s life.

    The authorities in Chiapas said in a statement that citizens are not allowed to take matters into their own hands and vowed to open an ongoing investigation into the suspect’s death.

    Women’s ‘LGBT’ Football Team with Trans Player Beats Finals Opponent by Eight Goals

    Published

    on

    Outrage has hit the Irish sporting world after a women’s “LGBT” football team with a trans player beat their finals opponent by eight goals.

    A so-called LGBT women’s football team, which included at least one trans player, has sparked outrage after it won the finals of a competition by beating its opponent by a devasting eight-goal margin.

    The event has now sparked significant controversy within the Irish sporting world at a time when many sporting bodies have implemented bans on transgender players who are born as men from taking part in women’s competitions.

    According to a report by the Irish Independent, pro-LGBT Gaelic football team Na Gaeil Aeracha swept their opponents Na Fianna’s ladies E team in the Dublin Junior J Shield football final.

    Na Fianna’s coach is reported to have approached the referee before the game to query the presence of the transgender player, whom the publication names as Italian national Giulia Valentino.

    The match official reportedly also stopped the match after the first break in play to tell the Na Gaeil Aeracha captain that there was “a problem with your number 21 [player]” and that “the player is a man”.

    The captain is reported to have told the referee that Valentino was a transwoman, but the referee replied that “this is the Ladies’ Gaelic Football Association”.

    Despite his own protests, however, the game appears to have continued with Valentino’s on-and-off presence, with Na Gaeil Aeracha reportedly romping to victory with an eight-goal lead — an improvement over the team’s four-goal victory in their semi-final match.

    The Ladies’ Gaelic Football Association — the official body that regulates the playing of women’s Gaelic football matches — has since announced that it is developing a policy around the presence of transgender athletes in matches.

    According to the Irish Independent report, Valentino has had a history of being an “outspoken proponent for transgender people being allowed to play sports in the gender they choose”.

    The ex-rugby player, who switched to GAA after picking up an injury, is also reportedly said to have been keen on playing in a women’s sport “because of sisterhood, validation and political visibility; as a trans woman those things are very important to me”.

    However, while Valentino may be keen on playing both with and against women, many sporting bodies have since proven to be far less fond of the idea, with some banning transgender individuals from playing in women’s games.

    For example, international bodies for both Rugby League and Rugby Union games have banned transwomen from playing women’s rugby, with both bodies citing concerns for player welfare.

    “Transgender women may not currently play women’s rugby,” a post on World Rugby’s website says. “Why? Because of the size, force- and power-producing advantages conferred by testosterone during puberty and adolescence, and the resultant player welfare risks this creates.”

    The post also notes that some have argued that testosterone suppression could be used to enable trans players to compete by removing their advantages, but the body has outright rejected this.

    “Research contradicts this, consistently showing that total mass, muscle mass and/or strength are reduced by at most 5 per cent to 10 per cent when testosterone is suppressed to levels in the female range, for a period of 12 months,” the body writes.

    “With the additional factor of training, either before or during the period of testosterone suppression, it is expected that baseline/pre levels for these variables will be higher, and that training will attenuate the decline in these variables with testosterone reduction.”

    “The consequence is that given the size of the biological differences prior to testosterone suppression, this comparatively small effect of testosterone reduction allows substantial and meaningful differences to remain,” the website goes on to state.
