One man has died and a number firefighters injured after a fire broke out at the Trump Tower in New York on Saturday. Police identified the man killed as Todd Brassner, 67, a millionaire art dealer who was a resident on the building’s 50th floor.

 The blaze started on the 50th floor of the tower in New York City’s central Manhattan area shortly after 5:30 pm local time. Trump, who has an office and private residence in the building, was in Washington at the time.

Press TV reports: The New York City Fire Department responding to the situation said later that the fire had come under control.

Three firefighters have also sustained non-life-threatening injuries

But even before that, Trump declared that the fire had been put out, and thanked the fire department.

They, however, updated the blaze from a three-alarm fire to a four-alarm fire, adding it was not yet under control.

“Fire at Trump Tower is out. Very confined (well built building). Firemen (and women) did a great job. THANK YOU!” the US President wrote.

Coincidence, evidence destruction, or just time/fate catching up with Epstein?

Massive Fire Reportedly Seen On Private Island Owned By Billionaire, And Sexual Predator, Jeffrey Epstein

Saturday, April 7, 2018

NMWD

Sources have reported that infamous billionaire and registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein's private island located in the Caribbean has recently caught on fire:

The cause of the fire is unknown, but some are speculating it may have started as the result of a relatively small 4.9 magnitude earthquake that struck yesterday just off the coast:

According to a March 14th article on JDJournal:

"The famed sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein is set to go to trial but his legal team is pushing to get the trial delayed. The Palm Beach billionaire settled lawsuits against him from three teenage victims for $5.5 million. Epstein claims that he was persuaded to settle the claims by attorney Bradley Edwards and former attorney Scott Rothstein. 

"The case between Epstein and Edwards was slated to begin Tuesday (3/13/18) in the Palm Beach County Circuit Court. After a round of appeals filed by Epstein’s attorneys Scott Link and Kara Rockenbach, the 4th District Court of Appeal granted a stay in the case."

JDJournal also reported that since the trial was delayed, Epstein "has been spending most of his time on his private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands."

The island, which can be found on Google Maps, is officially named 'Little St. James Island':

Notable public figures, such as former President Bill Clinton, have been reported to travel with Epstein on his 'Lolita Express' to various places, including this private island.

According to a 2016 article on the New York Post:

"Epstein has spent the bulk of his adult life cultivating relationships with the world’s most powerful men. Flight logs show that from 2001 to 2003, Bill Clinton flew on Epstein’s private plane, dubbed 'The Lolita Express' by the press, 26 times. After Epstein’s arrest in July 2006, federal tax records show Epstein donated $25,000 to the Clinton Foundation that year."

Another case, detailed in Wikipedia, involves Epstein as well as Prince Andrew from Britain and prominent American lawyer Alan Dershowitz:

"In January 2015, a 31-year-old American woman, Virginia Roberts, alleged in a sworn affidavit that at the age of 17, she had been held as a sex slave by Epstein. She further alleged that he had trafficked her to several people, including Prince Andrew and Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz. Roberts also claimed that Epstein and others had physically and sexually abused her.

"Roberts alleged that the FBI may have been involved in a cover-up. She said she had served as Epstein's sex slave from 1999 to 2002 and had recruited other under-age girls. Prince Andrew, Epstein and Dershowitz all denied having had sex with Roberts. Dershowitz took legal action over the allegations. A diary purported to belong to Roberts was published online. Epstein entered an out-of-court settlement with Roberts, as he has done in several other lawsuits.

"The BBC television series 'Panorama' planned an investigation of the scandal. As of 2016 these claims had not been tested in any law court."

Kevin Spacey, Chris Tucker, Katie Couric, George Stephanopoulos, and Woody Allen are some other celebrities that have reportedly traveled and partied with Epstein in the past.

Good question, where is Epstein? Special forces may have done something with him? 


Jeffrey Epstein's pedo island burns to the ground

 Billionaire and registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s private island has been burnt to the ground, following an earthquake on Friday. Epstein’s ‘pedo island’ – a favourite getaway spot for D.C. and Hollywood elites – caught on fire following a 4.9 quake that struck off the coast of the British Virgin Islands.

Newsmediawatchdog.com reports:

Others say it was intentionally created to destroy evidence related to Epstein’s latest legal troubles.

BACKGROUND

Last month, numerous outlets reported on Jeffrey Epstein’s salacious Florida trial being granted a stay by the appeals court.

According to a March 14th article on JDJournal:

“The famed sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein is set to go to trial but his legal team is pushing to get the trial delayed. The Palm Beach billionaire settled lawsuits against him from three teenage victims for $5.5 million. Epstein claims that he was persuaded to settle the claims by attorney Bradley Edwards and former attorney Scott Rothstein.

“The case between Epstein and Edwards was slated to begin Tuesday (3/13/18) in the Palm Beach County Circuit Court. After a round of appeals filed by Epstein’s attorneys Scott Link and Kara Rockenbach, the 4th District Court of Appeal granted a stay in the case.”

JDJournal also reported that since the trial was delayed, Epstein “has been spending most of his time on his private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands.”

The island, which can be found on Google Maps, is officially named ‘Little St. James Island’:

Hi Henry, are you saying you know Special Forces were involved?

This fire at Jeffrey Epstein’s private island does look like a Special Forces OPT.

Mark, how the hell are you man?
I just read all the info here, Special Forces, who knows, looks like another DNC Cover Up,because Jeffrey Epstein got busted again. Fires and the elite like Hillary Clinton's home burned with the other servers at the house.
Now we have two different fires at the Trump Towers, Trump is now looking into the issues.
This is just strange, I have to look into several blogs, something is strange about all of this.

Good Henry, thanks.  Hope you and your family are well too.

I look forward to hearing what you find out. I wonder if Trump's fire was set to harm his character? 

Yep- Jeffrey Epstein is missing...? And i do not think anyone calls Hank, Henry, but Hank does have a nick name...

LOL Tif

ALERT ALERT

OMG!! -> Government Now Wants To Seize Your Car For Going 5MPH Over The Limit

We’ve discussed this on and off for several years now. Civil asset forfeiture is a legal process that allows the government to seize assets and cash from citizens without any due process or judicial oversight.

You don’t even have to be charged with a crime. You are assumed guilty unless you can somehow prove your innocence.

Of course, not everyone has this ability… if you aren’t local, state, or federal law enforcement, this is called stealing, and you go to prison.

But the government is actually a bigger problem than common thieves.

A 2015 report showed that law enforcement used civil asset forfeiture to steal more from US residents than every thief, robber, and burglar in America combined.

About $4.5 BILLION worth of cash, cars, homes, and other property is taken by civil asset forfeiture each year – hundreds of millions more than common criminals steal.

And it happens at every level. Your local cop can use civil asset forfeiture just like your state trooper. And then any one of the armed agents of the US government—from the FBI to the Fish and Wildlife Service—can rob you for whatever reason they want.

This travesty continues to grow because the cops who take your stuff get to keep it. Police departments and government agencies around the country depend on civil asset forfeiture to boost their budgets.

Cops will literally keep some of the cars they take as squad cars. And they make a fortune auctioning off the houses, boats, and anything else they confiscate.

Obviously this gives cops an incentive to steal, whether or not they actually think the property was used in a crime, or acquired illegally. Remember, civil asset forfeiture adds billions every year to their bottom line.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court heard arguments in a case of civil asset forfeiture.

Tyson Timbs was convicted of selling a small amount of drugs to an undercover police officer. He was sentenced to house arrest, and paid about $1,200 in fines.

But then police used civil asset forfeiture to take his $42,000 Land Rover which Timbs purchased with money from a life insurance policy after his father died. The money did not come from selling drugs, or any other illegal activity.

Timbs sued, and the case made its way to the Supreme Court, because every lower court in Indiana said the forfeiture was perfectly legit.

The case revolves around whether or not the seizure of the Land Rover was an excessive fine under the 8th amendment, and whether or not this protection against excessive fines applies to state governments.

And the public got some crazy insight into the government’s position.

The Indiana Solicitor General was arguing in favor of civil asset forfeiture when Justice Stephen Breyer asked him a hypothetical.

Breyer asked, if a state needs revenue, could it force someone to forfeit their Bugatti, Mercedes, or Ferrari for speeding? Even if they were going just 5 miles per hour over the speed limit?

And the utterly appalling answer from the Indiana Solicitor General was, yes.

That’s right… the official government position is that they can steal any amount of your property in “connection” with any crime whatsoever, no matter how trivial the crime may be… even exceeding the speed limit by 5 miles per hour.

This is how overbearing and authoritarian the government has become in the land of the free.

This is how much power your local cop has… and the power only grows as you go to state, and federal officials.

If there is any solace in any of this, it is that the other Supreme Court Justices were reportedly laughing at this exchange.

The justices seemed incredulous that Indiana’s top lawyer was using such absurd assertions and flimsy reasoning in his arguments.

So, for now, we can keep our cars if we get pulled over for speeding. But that may not always be the case…

Depending on how this is ruled, it could pave the way for even more egregious abuses of power… or it could curb the practice, and reign in these thieves in uniforms.

Just understand where the government is coming from. These politicians, bureaucrats and officers think they can do whatever they want. Absolutely anything goes, with no limitation whatsoever.

And that makes it a little tough to feel like you really live in the land of the free.
