BOB O'Rourke cooks cheeseburgers in latest viral stunt.

BreitbartBeto O'Rourke grills cheeseburgers to prove he's 'just like you'.
That's BOB using fossil fuel? Are those plastic, disposable plates destined for a landfill? He's cooking and serving meat? Why so many pans when the same number of burgers could've fit into one? How much more water will be used in washing those unneeded pans? Are those lights powered by...electricity? Would you like a little cheeseburger with your Teflon?

We know it's only a matter of time until BOB appears on "Dancing With The Stars Dorks."

Other Stunts by BOB:

Laughs mentioning the El Paso shooting.

His mugshot.

His rally.

He locks his doors and bars his windows. Strange behavior for someone who favors open borders and mass, unchecked immigration.

Newshub journalist asks vegans a simple question. At first the comments were helpful. Then, things turned. Hint: Not for the better.

I assumed I would be able to ask my seemingly innocent question without getting attacked. I was very wrong.
But soon enough, the nasty comments started rolling in.
Within an hour, the suspicion had turned into judgments. People were accusing me of creating drama.

"You've been offered the truth. Now will you skew it, I wonder?" one person wrote.

Another person questioned my journalistic integrity.
My posts spiralled [sic] out of control without me even engaging in them, and I managed to get kicked out of two of the three groups I had reached out to.

Vegans complain that they are stereotyped for being too preachy and self-righteous, but I had just been bullied by at least 50 people who didn't know me from a piece of tofu, after I turned to them for advice.

Video captures moments man crushed by elevator at Manhattan Promenade building.

NY Post: Graphic video shows moment man crushed by elevator at Manhattan Promenade building.
One of every New Yorker’s worst nightmares played out Thursday morning when a Kips Bay man was crushed to death by an elevator in his luxury high-rise as his horrified neighbors looked on, authorities said.

Sam Waisbren, 30, clawed desperately to escape the packed lift as it plunged from the lobby into the darkness of the shaft below, but he was crushed between the elevator car and the shaft wall, according to officials.

“The guy literally was trying to climb out onto the floor while the elevator was still [moving down],” said a building worker, who witnessed the death and asked not to be identified. “It’s awful.”

The horrific scene, which played out at the 23-story Manhattan Promenade tower on Third Avenue near East 25th Street just after 8:15 a.m., was captured on building surveillance footage exclusively obtained by The Post.

As one woman stands waiting, the elevator door opens into the lobby and a man wearing a backpack emerges, then wheels around as the lift gives way and Waisbren and five others go rocketing downward, the clip shows.

Waisbren instinctively shot out his right hand to grab the frame of the elevator door and tried to plant his right leg onto a sliver of lobby floor, but was immediately overpowered.

“His initial reaction was to put his arm out . . . so he could get off,” the building worker said. “At that point, the elevator took him down. Jumping out [of] the car while it’s still moving, you just don’t want to do it.”
Advisory - The video is graphic and NSFW. You can't "unsee" it, so think carefully before deciding. (There is no audio).

I'm not surprised, yet I am, at how everyone kept walking, except for the one man.

Adam Schiff congressional seat challenged by drag queen Maebe A. Girl who says, "America disgusts me."

DEM Adam Schiff vs drag queen Maebe A. Girl. Cat-fight?

Maebe A. Girl, the self-described “larger-than-life” candidate, is challenging one of the current stars of the Democratic party.
It’s essential that we get more queer representation in public office, especially at the national level,” she said. “We need more everyday people in Congress—its overwhelmingly older, white, wealthy men, and that’s just not representative of America, or my district.”

But it’s not going to be easy. The incumbent in the 28th district is Democratic U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, a well-known critic of the Trump administration who has represented part of the Los Angeles area since 2001, and won in 2018 with over 75% of the vote. Plus, Girl is not the only challenger—four other candidates have signed up, including one other Democrat, an independent and two Republicans.
Girl describes herself as transgender and genderfluid (a term that encompasses people who do not ascribe to a particular gender) and said that running under her drag stage name drew some criticism. “People will say ‘I can’t take her seriously with that name, but it’s really just a statement about gender norms. I don’t feel like there’s a difference between Maebe A. Girl and me,” she said, making the comparison to celebrities like Lady Gaga, whose adopted names have come to define them.

She also decided to run in drag, which she said “is not in any way a costume” but rather an expression of her identity.
Girl described herself as “a larger-than-life kind of character,” who stands over six feet tall in heels, and has tattoos covering most of the space on her arms.
"America disgusts me," Maebe A. Girl, Facebook. (May I suggest Tehran as more hospitable?) 

Schiff's bar mitzvah picture, June 1973. That bow-tie is...fabulous.

Anyone know how tall Schiff stands in heels?

Sanders' $16 Trillion Green Scam.

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders released a $16.3 trillion climate plan on Thursday before touring a Northern California town ravaged by wildfire, declaring the setting a "wake-up call for our entire nation" to the dangers of a warming planet.

"Climate change is a major, major crisis for our country, and the entire world, and one of the manifestations of that crisis is what happened here," the Vermont senator said as he walked through a burned-out mobile home park in Paradise alongside people who lost their homes in last November's deadly blaze.

Sanders' climate plan calls for the United States to move to renewable energy across the economy by 2050 and declare climate change a national emergency.
When has anyone, especially a Liberal Full-Fledged Socialist Bernie accurately predicted the cost of something? Yeah, his plan will come in on time and on budget. Much like California's Train To Nowhere, as just one example.

Is Bernie sure $16 Trillion is enough?

Smart Ovens Turning Themselves on and Preheating during the night. Manufacturer blames other apps.

Multiple people report that their June Smart Oven turned on by itself during the night and preheated to 400 degrees, perhaps in eager anticipation of the meal it might soon cook. June did not issue a statement regarding the potential cause of this heating fiasco, but it told The Verge that user error was to blame.

In one instance, June blamed the Amazon Alexa integration for the preheating and in another instance said the user may have tapped something within the app that triggered the preheat functionality. In only one case did June send out a new oven, but the company said it was due to “unrelated issues.” The events have users concerned.
"Blame the Other App." Way to go PR Department of June.

One could consider unplugging the oven. This may trigger the physical act of reprogramming when plugged back in. Gee, can the App Dependent Generation burn one calorie by the intense manual labor required to reprogram it? If you get short of breath, sit down, relax, you'll be okay. Really. There's an App for that.

The self-activation, preheating and possible fire is the least of the worries. The smart oven is probably spying on those who own it. It's recording their words and movements. It's monitoring everything they do. And it's talking about them behind their back with the smart fridge, Alexa, the Flat Screen and all the other Black Mirror devices. And their car, and gas, water and electric meters. Wave to the hidden cameras in the ovens, Fitbits, cell phones and flat screens. Your life is being live-streamed on the Dark Web. Yeah, the camera does add ten pounds, but don't worry, ya look fine.

Amusement ride shut down; people see swastikas.

A new ride at a German amusement park recently raised quite a few eyebrows on social media for its bizarre design. Now the ride, called the Adlerflug or “Eagle’s Flight,” will reportedly be shut down after so many people pointed out the obvious: The ride looks like two giant swastikas.
Rüdiger Braun, the director of the park, has apologized for the swastika ride and insisted to the local Bild newspaper that, “We didn’t notice the gondolas are in the form of a swastika. It wasn’t obvious from the manufacturer’s sketches.”

Braun has reportedly proposed giving the ride three “spinning eagles” instead of four, which he says, "will have this problem under control."

San Fran sanitizes language of criminal justice system.

The words “felon,” “offender,” “convict,” “addict” and “juvenile delinquent” would be part of the past in official San Francisco parlance under new “person first” language guidelines adopted by the Board of Supervisors.

Going forward, what was once called a convicted felon or an offender released from jail will be a “formerly incarcerated person,” or a “justice-involved” person or simply a “returning resident.”

Parolees and people on criminal probation will be referred to as a “person on parole,” or “person under supervision.”

A juvenile “delinquent” will become a “young person with justice system involvement,” or a “young person impacted by the juvenile justice system.”

And drug addicts or substance abusers will become “a person with a history of substance use.”

We don’t want people to be forever labeled for the worst things that they have done,” Supervisor Matt Haney said.
The nonbinding resolution passed last month.

The mayor didn’t sign off on the new language proposal.
"Liberals" will still be referred to as "Shit-For-Brains".

Vacationing Chicago Mayor asks legislature for power to tax high-end professional services and big-ticket home sales.

Chicago Sun Times: Mayor Lightfoot to ask legislature for power to tax high-end professional services and big-ticket home sales.
[Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot will ask the legislature] to help Chicago dig out of a $1 billion hole — by empowering the city to tax high-end professional services and raise the transfer tax on big-ticket home sales, City Hall sources said Monday.

The vacationing mayor plans to make those requests during a fall veto session, when she also will seek a Chicago-only casino gambling fix.
Lightfoot wants state authorization to tax high-end professional services and raise the real estate transfer tax on the sale of $1 million-plus homes. The mayor once earmarked that tax for homeless services and affordable housing.

Sources said the mayor is prepared to portray those two local taxes as the only alternative to a dreaded property tax increase she wants desperately to avoid after former Mayor Rahm Emanuel doubled the city’s levy.
[House Minority Leader Jim Durkin (R-Western Springs) said], "I just don’t see my caucus embracing either of those two concepts[".]
Kristen Cabanban, a spokesperson for the city’s Office of Budget and Management, had no immediate comment on the mayor’s impending request.

Biden attracts crowd "in the teens" on Tuesday in Iowa.

Joe Biden surprised to hear his crowd size is not the largest:

Video via You Tube
"What I'm trying to do is go around from town to town and I'm drawing as big of crowds, or bigger than anybody," Biden said in Iowa on Tuesday. "Have you seen anybody draw bigger crowds than me in this state?"

"Yes," Doocy responded before noting that he saw a bigger crowd for Sen. Elizabeth Warren when she visited Des Moines in January.

"The vice president didn't seem to like that because a few minutes later, he singled me out," Doocy said on "Special Report."

Biden told Doocy he was a "big boy" and could handle Doocy allegedly coming after him. "I mean, I know you, I know you're going to go after me no matter what I've got. Yeah, you and it's OK. Good. I'm a big boy. I can handle it," he said.
Biden makes a statement that is factually incorrect, gets questioned on it, and his response is, "you're going to go after me." If Joe could say something accurate, there wouldn't be a need to question him. Joe doesn't understand this. He's entitled to his own facts propaganda - and no one can question him.

MMS - the same as drinking bleach?

Medical News Today: FDA warn about 'life threatening' side effects of 'miracle' cure.
The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) news briefing concerns a product called Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS), which is widely available on the internet.

The product appears under a number of names, including Master Mineral Solution, Miracle Mineral Supplement, Chlorine Dioxide Protocol, and Water Purification Solution.

Although the FDA have not approved the product, sellers promote it variously as antimicrobial, antiviral, and antibacterial.

Promoters advertise MMS as an effective treatment for a range of conditions, including cancer, HIV, autism, acne, malaria, flu, Lyme disease, and hepatitis, despite no evidence from medical research.
    "[I]ngesting these products is the same as drinking bleach. Consumers should not use these products, and parents should not give these products to their children for any reason."

    -- FDA Acting Commissioner Dr. Ned Sharpless

Individuals who have taken MMS have supplied reports to the FDA. The subsequent list of potential side effects includes severe vomiting and diarrhea, life threatening hypotension (low blood pressure), and liver failure.
I understand people seeking out anything as a 'miracle cure' when no other relief can be found, but bleach?

Biden Future Gaffe. Regrets banning Michael Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Following Israel’s ban of congresswomen Ilhan Omar (Democrat, Minnesota) and Rashida Tlaib (Democrat, Michigan), 2020 Democratic candidate Joe Biden took to twitter saying: “I have always been a stalwart supporter of Israel—a vital partner that shares our democratic values. No democracy should deny entry to visitors based on the content of their ideas—even ideas they strongly object to. And no leader of the free world should encourage them to do so.”

Ironically, Joe Biden was Vice President when Obama banned entrance to Israeli parliament member Michael-Ben Ari in 2012.

This is the typical hypocrisy of the Democratic party” Ben Ari told Breaking Israel News.

“I wan’t being investigated and I never even said anything negative about the United States. I was not a member of any terrorist group despite what they were saying. The decision was completely arbitrary. “He (Biden) is now decrying precisely what his administration did to me.” he added.

9th US Circuit Court of Appeals upholds Trump Admin Title X. Planned Parenthood departure as soon as Monday.

NBC2: Planned Parenthood faces critical decision after abortion-referral restriction upheld:
The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday denied Planned Parenthood's request to reverse its order allowing the Trump administration's Title X abortion clinic-referral restriction to go into effect -- a blow for abortion rights activists after the organization threatened to pull out of the federal family-planning program over the rule.
[Mia Heck, director of external affairs at HHS' Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health] pointed to an earlier statement accusing Planned Parenthood of "actually choosing to place a higher priority on the ability to refer for abortion instead of continuing to receive federal funds to provide a broad range of acceptable and effective family planning methods and services to clients in need of these services."
National Catholic RegisterPlanned Parenthood to pull out of Title X.
The decision is set to take effect Aug. 19, the date by which funding recipients are required to make a “good faith” undertaking to comply with a new rule barring the referral of clients for abortion services.

After it was announced in final form in February, the Protect Life Rule was subject to court challenges from abortion providers and several states. In June, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals determined that the rule could come into force. In July, judges refused to issue a stay against that decision.

Planned Parenthood informed the court on Wednesday that, unless they reversed its refusal to grant a stay, it would leave the Title X program on Monday.

Planned Parenthood’s acting president Alexis McGill Johnson said the group refused “to let the Trump administration bully us into withholding abortion information from our patients.”

Calling the Protect Life Rule a “gag on health care providers,” Johnson said in a statement that the rule is “a blatant assault on our health and rights, and we will not stand for it.”
Yeah, well, PP faced a choice (no pun intended) and they made their decision. It wouldn't be surprising if PP backtracks on this considering how much Liberal organizations love public funding. But doing so would compromise their ideological price of human life, of which they've just determined. Now, if they can just stop whining over their choice...(pun intended).

But Biden mistakenly recalled the location of the speech as Burlington, Vt., instead of Burlington, Iowa, according to The Washington Examiner. Whether Biden had Democratic rival Bernie Sanders -- a former mayor of Burlington, Vt. -- on his mind was not immediately known.

Tlaib plays the victim card. Can visit her Grandma, but won't.

Representative Rashida Tlaib said she will not visit Israel to visit her grandmother and other Palestinian relatives on the West Bank after being treated “like a criminal” by Israel, which announced Thursday that Tlaib and Representative Ilhan Omar would not be allowed into the country on a planned political visit.

“Silencing me & treating me like a criminal is not what she wants for me,” the Michigan Democrat said of her grandmother. “It would kill a piece of me. I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in–fighting against racism, oppression & injustice.”
Tlaib isn't being silenced or being treated like a criminal. She was asked to be respectful as a guest in another country. She couldn't - rather, wouldn't - do that.

Offensive behavior and speech has consequences. Tlaib apparently feels her behavior and the consequences don't apply to her. Well, they do and now she's getting a taste of the repercussions. Ain't That a Shame.

Minneapolis residents raise concerns about Uptown Mall renovation. Oh, no! The Patchouli-Birkenstock Crowd is Triggered!

A fine example of Full Circle Liberalism, aka Socialism 360°. How I love stories like these...

FOX 9 KMSP: Minneapolis residents raise concern about Uptown Mall renovation:
Some possible changes could be coming to an age-old part of Uptown Minneapolis. Plans from the Park Board could potentially reduce the amount of parking on part of the plaza.
For more than a century, the Uptown Mall has been a shady oasis in one of the most densely-populated neighborhoods in the city.

Some neighbors worry possible changes to the park could cause it to lose its character.

“This is like going to St. Anthony Main and ripping up all the bricks,” said Uptown resident Steven Taylor. “Uptown doesn’t want that.”

Last spring, the Park Board released a new design to update the median between Hennepin Avenue and East lake of the Isles Parkway that would include a new plaza and play area by the Walker Library, a connection to the Midtown Greenway and community and rain gardens.

Park Board officials say a Community Advisory Committee is also considering getting rid of the streets in the two blocks closest to Lake of the Isles and turning them into green space for multi-use fields and a sand volleyball court.

It was quite shocking for the community to hear about,” said East Isles Residents Assocation Ellen Van Iwaarden. (GASP! The Progs were shocked! Triggered! They didn't see it coming. - DD)
The East Isles Residents Association says neighbors are split on the possible plans for the park.

“There are some people who are absolutely for it, who think we shouldn’t be designing our parks around cars,” Van Iwaarden said. “But there are many who live in the apartments and park there.”

Nobody wants to tarnish one of the city’s hidden gems.

“I’m not opposed to getting rid of parking for the right reasons,” Taylor said. “I don’t think volleyball courts is the right reasons [sic].”

Understand this geographic area is a textbook definition of Progressivism.

Some folks in the area worry this renovation may cause the area to lose its character. WELCOME to what you've pushed on everyone else, everywhere else.  How does it feeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeel?

Renovation? Heck yes, DO IT! I have suggestions:

* Add a 24/7 bus line or light rail service.
* Add several pedestrian bridges, whether they're needed or not.
* A couple of amphitheaters. Why have only one?
* Since Minneapolis has a large homeless population, add several affordable-housing-in-a-box projects. Make them real tall and narrow buildings with the first level being zoned for commercial use. Dig deep underground parking facilities that will take years to complete. The benefits outweigh any short-term delays, don't they?
* Eliminate all vehicles and build several lanes for bicycles, skateboarding, scooters, roller-blading and unicorns.
* Design a costly, grand, obtuse, central-theme artwork. Maybe a gigantic, Plexiglas nonagon filled with liquid that glows or changes colors similar to a lava-lamp!
* Designate the renovated area a Gun Free Zone so no crime or vandalism will occur there, ever.
* Make all activities free; no-charge. Everything is Free! Always!

How is all this funded and paid for? Why ask such an unrelated and offensive question. Are you some Fascist Luddite who hates progress and development?

See, in the long run, the above will save so much money, it will pay for itself. A government or quasi-government bureaucracy that accurately predicts future tax revenue will say so, and projected revenue and savings are never wrong. Any financial burden by - say, taxpayers - will be short-lived. Besides, taxpayers have LOTS of money. Lots and Lots of it.

The benefits of renovating the Uptown Mall area? Beneficial to everyone, it will be a happy place where everyone is welcome.

Somewhere, hidden in all this renovation plan, there must be the belief that promotes this plan fights global warming global cooling climate change. How could anyone be against that?

DO IT! Make the renovation happen. Make the plan Grand and Bold! I'm all for it!

Full Circle Liberalism hits and so many NIMBYS start whining? This is the mystery of life. It's time to do your part, Uptown. Cars and parking are bad for the environment. Volleyball courts and green spaces are better for the environment!

Losing character and tarnishing gems, hidden or otherwise, is what Liberalism does best. Somehow, Liberals dislike living with it, though they expect - née demand - it from others.

We should probably doxx everyone who even slightly voices any opposition to this planned Uptown renovation.

Facial recognition software mistook 1 in 5 California lawmakers for criminals, says ACLU. So, they're saying it works, then?

California Assemblyman Phil Ting has never been arrested, but he was recently mistaken for a criminal.

Ting (D-San Francisco), who authored a bill to ban facial recognition software from being used on police body cameras, was one of 26 California legislators who was incorrectly matched with a mug shot in a recent test of a common face-scanning program by the American Civil Liberties Union.

About 1 in 5 legislators was erroneously matched to a person who had been arrested when the ACLU used the software to screen their pictures against a database of 25,000 publicly available booking photos. Last year, in a similar experiment done with photos of members of Congress, the software erroneously matched 28 federal legislators with mug shots.
Again, they're saying it works, or it's not identifying enough politicians as criminals?

 One glance and you can tell they all look guilty.

Students at a California college received an apology and were offered counseling services after being sent an email about employment opportunities with U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.

California State University in San Bernardino sent an apology to students who “experienced distress” after the career center sent a flyer from USCBP announcing that “U.S. Border Patrol is Now Hiring!”

Veteran and military recruitment webinars being offered during the week were promoted by USCBP in the flyer which was forwarded to students.

    The career center at CSUSB really didn’t think this one through. There is already underrepresentation [sic] of our undocumented students at this campus and this was to say the least – thoughtless.

Complaints to the school’s career center came in from the liberal students who were apparently triggered by the message.

    CSUSB really sent out a Border Patrol Recruitment email to a school where over 60% is HISPANIC.

    Wow $90k, I’d sell my soul to the devil first before i join border patrol.

    that shit hurted. (@jstpeachy_) August 7, 2019

While the school’s response did not note what the offensive part of the Border Patrol recruitment flyer was, their message was a pointed apology that pandered to the sensitive snowflakes.

    Students complained the emails were “triggering” & the school is offering counseling.

    RT if you support the brave men and women of the USCBP!

The Career Center sincerely apologizes for the email sent to students on Monday, August 5, 2019, regarding the employment webinars offered by the U.S. Border Patrol,” the message read.

“We recognize that some recipients experienced distress due to the contents of the message, and we acknowledge the validity of your concerns. Please know that the Career Center is committed to informing students about employment opportunities while also considering the safety and well-being of all members of the campus community,” it continued.

Chris Fredo Cuomo Unhinged. Profanity laden tirade against someone who didn't know his name. Fredo threatens violence.

Advisory: Language - NSFW.

A fan of news went to ask Chris Cuomo for a photo, mind you the man who asked him DID NOT know his real name and knows of him only through The RUSH LIMBUAGH SHOW and on that show Rush repeatedly calls him "FREDO" so the man legitimately thought his name was FREDO. At this point CHRIS CUOMO LOSES IT AND THREATENS THE MAN WITH VIOLENCE!
I'll only add that Fredo was wearing a baseball cap because the fake raccoon hair he wears must've been at the dry cleaners.

FREDO! FREDO! FREDO the WOP! Fredo has sand in his vagina...

The Triggered Fredo Cuomo clip has amused Donald Trump, Jr.:

#FakeNewsFredo - that may just stick!

CNN, of course, is defending and stands by their little Dago.  Abusive, threatening language, intimidation and all.

We can only imagine the feigned outrage from The Left if instance and behavior of the Fredo Cuomo clip had instead been an unhinged Tucker Carlson.

Epstein autopsy observed by celebrity pathologist Michael Baden. Epstein described as being in "good spirits." Removed from suicide watch per his attorneys request.

BloodSport Capital @ Twitter:

DNYUZ: Epstein Camp Sent Pathologist Michael Baden to Watch Over His Autopsy.
Chief Medical Examiner Barbara Sampson also noted that Epstein’s representatives have hired celebrity pathologist Michael Baden to conduct an independent autopsy and they were allowed to observe the autopsy. Baden, who served at the city’s chief medical examiner in late 1970s, has made a career investigating high-profile deaths, including Michael Brown, who was killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, and former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez. Baden also testified at the murder trials of O.J. Simpson and Phil Spector.

It was not immediately clear if Epstein’s body had been released or who was going to be claiming it, or who “those representing the decedent” were.
“People close to Epstein” had said Saturday that “he seemed recently to be in good spirits” and they “expressed concern about the possibility of foul play,” according to the account of  “one person familiar with their discussions” cited by The Washington Post on Saturday.

Suicide nearly impossible at Metropolitan Correctional Center. One suicide in 21 years; Epstein makes it two?

Jeffrey Epstein’s shocking death occurred at an ultra-secure federal lock-up where suicide is supposedly next to impossible.

Yet Epstein, 66, apparently managed to hang himself in his cell in the Special Housing Unit on the 9th floor of the federal Metropolitan Correctional Center at about 6:30 a.m. Saturday.
Suicide at the jail, which serves mainly as a holding facility for about 765 men and women awaiting trial for federal crimes of all levels, is rare.

A review of published stories found only one such death in the past 21 years, the 1998 suicide of South Philadelphia drug kingpin Louis Turra, who reportedly hanged himself.

A handful of suicide attempts were also reported.

But life in the specialized units often involves inmates being watched by cameras in their cells and checked by guards almost constantly.

One former inmate, Uzair Paracha, who was held there for two years until 2005, wrote he was subjected to frequent strip searches, isolation from other prisoners, lights that were left on 22 or 23 hours per day.

He said guards "monitored us like lab rats."

Still buying the "Epstein suicide" Narrative?

Biden draws bigger crowds than expected in Iowa.

Joe Biden, Iowa State Fair - Saturday

8/11 and the Golden Gate Bridge.


A very important day in the history of the world is upon us. In the near future the moon will cross through the Celestial Golden Gate flanked by Jupiter and Saturn. Now here is why it is significant; on 9/11/01 the moon crossed through the Celestial Silver Gate while being flanked by Jupiter and Saturn. As you will see the upcoming Celestial Golden Gate crossing of the moon has even greater implications for the Earth than the Silver Gate crossing at 9/11.

Whose body was on the gurney carrying Epstein? Is he really dead? Ears and nose different. Conspiracies abound.

So many theories.

BNL News:

More at Hal Turner: Guards in Epstein Jail Told to LEAVE AREA 3 Hours early.

Three You Tube Channels:

1) Nose and ears don't match on Epstein and person on gurney. Emergency call for cardiac arrest. (It's an hour, 24min video. I skimmed over much of it).

2) Nose and ears don't match. (8 1/2 minutes).

3) Gemetria-the numbers surrounding Epstein. (9 minutes).

Some selected screen caps below from all three videos:
