Epstein, or How Your News is Cooked

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Prince Andrew, Virginia Roberts Giuffre and Ghislaine Maxwell in 2001   The US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit unsealed a batch of documents in the Jeffrey Epstein case today, as announced recently. Actually, it’s a case brought by Virginia Roberts Giuffre against Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s madam and main procurer of little girls.

And beyond as well, but as Donald Trump said about European efforts to curtail Twitter, Facebook et al’s activities, they’re American companies and hence America’s responsibility. Well,

Will China Retreat Into Itself?

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Odilon Redon Peyrelebade landscape 1880   It’s never easy to gauge what exactly is happening in China, or why the CCP Politburo takes the decisions it does.
