      Fun fact: Frank Zappa claims he gave his wife 2 choices for their daughter’s name, 1) Moon Unit, and 2) Motorhead. Needless to say, she chose the former and the rest is history with the song Valley Girl.

    Some Pittsburgh hack insinuated that Benny’s career is pretty much over, and that Steeler fans had been watching too many Kentucky highlights. Bum.
    As discussed in the earlier unfortunate article about his “going off”, let’s wait til we see what he can do with some decent blocking.

      If he scores a TD the next time he returns a kick, then his nickname for me will forver more be “Lynn-o-matic”. It may not flow the way “Shane-o-matic” did with Shayne Graham, but it still works. I guess we could have hung that on Derrick Abney too after the one incredible year he had.

    IMO, no way Epstein offed himself. Too many people wanted to shut him up at any cost. I think since he got off easy once, he probably thought he would be able to do it again. Someone as rich as him would ALWAYS find a way to get off easy, so I doubt if he was really afraid of spending the rest of his life in prison.

      They wouldn’t have to go into his cell and actively murder a suicidal person. Just grease enough palms to get the suicide watch lifted, the cameras screwed up, the guards disrupted. The amount of ridiculously powerful people that would have been embarrassed, or even implicated in an Epstein trial is staggering.



    • J-Dub421
      10:59 am August 12, 2019 Permalink

      Not after the #metoo movement. Epstein wasn’t getting off scot-free this time. People were also starting to dig into his finances, chunks of which appear to have been stolen/embezzled from clients.

      Life in prison supposedly is even less kind to molesters, child abusers, sexual predators, etc. than it is to other prisoners convicted of other crimes. So by offing himself, he DID find a way to get off easy. He knew what was coming, not to even mention the shame.

      Did you read it? How does one commit suicide in the strictest prison in the US while on suicide watch? You can’t possibly be that naive. Read the article before you pass judgement, it’s more credible than the MSM.



    • 4everUKblue

      Epstein was detained at the Metropolitan Correction Center in Manhattan which is considered to be the ‚Äústrictest prison in the United States‚ÄĚ. Inside the walls of this prison, fluorescent lights are never switched off and inmates experience almost no human interaction. Furthermore, Epstein was kept in the most secure area of that prison. Inmates are kept in their cells for 23 hours each day and CCTV cameras watch them as they shower, go to the bathroom and sit alone in their heavily barricaded cells. Furthermore, Epstein was an extremely high-profile inmate.

      Suicide watch is an intensive monitoring process used to ensure that a person cannot attempt suicide. Usually the term is used in reference to inmates or patients in a prison, hospital, psychiatric hospital, or military base. People are placed on suicide watch when it is believed that they exhibit warning signs indicating that they may be at risk of committing bodily harm or fatal self injury.

      People under suicide watch are put into an environment where it would be difficult for them to hurt themselves. In many cases, any dangerous items will be removed from the area, such as sharp objects and some furniture, or they may be placed in a special padded cell, which has nothing outcropping from the walls (e.g., a clothes hook or door closing bracket) to provide a place for a ligature to be attached, and with only a drain-grill on the floor. They may be stripped of anything with which they might hurt themselves or use as a noose, including shoelaces, belts, neckties, bras, shoes, socks, suspenders and bed sheets. In extreme cases the inmate may be undressed entirely.

      In even more extreme cases, inmates may be placed in ‚Äútherapeutic restraints‚ÄĚ, a four- or five-point restraint system. The inmate is placed on their back on a mattress. Their arms and legs are tied down and a belt is placed across the chest. In a five-point system the head is also restrained. An inmate is allowed a range of movement every 2 hours, when one limb is released and they are allowed to move it for a short period. They are then restrained again, proceeding to the next limb. This process is repeated until all areas restrained have been moved. This process usually continues in 8-hour shifts, and the inmate has a face-to-face encounter with a mental health professional at least once in each 8-hour interval. This cannot continue for more than 16 consecutive hours. The inmate is continually watched by staff during this time.

      In the most extreme cases of self-harm, only when all other avenues have not worked or are impracticable, ‚Äúchemical restraint‚ÄĚ drugs may be used to sedate the inmate. In order for a facility to administer a chemical restraint, it must have the approval/recommendation of a licensed mental health professional, the facility warden, and a court order.
      ‚Äď Suicide Watch, Wikipedia

      I don’t think Wikipedia is that credible but you can search suicide watch and all sources you find will pretty much say the same thing.

    • 4everUKblue
      11:20 am August 12, 2019 Permalink

      The death of Epstein is extremely convenient for the world elite. While mass media was extremely careful to not communicate information that could harm its elite owners, a long trial presented high risks of sensitive leaks. High-powered individuals from all around the world were at risk of being involved in a sordid affair involving the trafficking and abuse of minors. On a wider scale, the sick, twisted culture and lifestyle of the world elite was being exposed.

      Furthermore, a closer inquiry into some ‚Äúnon-profit organizations‚ÄĚ such as the Clinton Foundation (with which Epstein was deeply involved) and Ghislaine Maxwell‚Äôs TerraMar Project could have opened a gigantic can of worms. They do not want the masses to discover the real reason why the elite is so concerned with Haiti and why so many people go down there to do ‚Äúcharity work‚ÄĚ.

      He was never going to be allowed to go to trial.

      Now that Epstein is dead, will the federal case keep going forward? Even if it does, lots of powerful people are now off the hook. And media will gradually stop reporting on what actually happened on Epstein Island and the Lolita Express.



    • J-Dub421
      11:21 am August 12, 2019 Permalink

      Again, he had been taken off suicide watch. Epstein was smart enough to know how to game the system, and/or bribe guards with all his money to look the other way and give him an opportunity.

      You’re conveniently leaving your boy Trump. Trump loved Epstein and called him a great guy. They used to party together all the time. The Clintons are no longer in power. Trump would have had way more to lose in this situation. If you’re going to look at conspiracy theories, that’s where you should be looking.

      Also there will still be trials, at least civil ones over Epstein’s estate. The court cases and information aren’t going away.



    • 4everUKblue
      11:25 am August 12, 2019 Permalink

      And why do you suppose he was taken off suicide watch? Could it be so he could be killed? Do you have any clue the class of people visiting his island? Do some research and tell me there were not powerful people involved. He was never going to be allowed to name names.



    • 4everUKblue
      11:27 am August 12, 2019 Permalink

    • RealCatsFan
      11:27 am August 12, 2019 Permalink

      I’m kind of in 4ever’s camp that I don”t think he offed himself, but I don’t think it necessarily points to the left being behind it. There is plenty of evidence that he had a lot of connections with elite who lean right as well. But the fact that he had so many connections to rich, powerful people with a lot to lose is why I am so skeptical that he killed himself, or even if he did, that it was accidental that it was allowed to happen.

    • 4everUKblue

      There will be civil trials and some things will come out but it won’t come from Epstein. And does anyone think the elite do not have the power to cover their tracks? I don’t lean left or right, I believe they’re all criminals, Trump, the Clintons, the Bush’s, all of them.

      It’s not so much my point of view as it is what makes the most sense when you look at who was involved, had the most to lose and all that went on with the Lolita Express. And I’m not worked up, but it is disappointing how many people never question the mainstream story. Don’t agree with me but do your own research and use your higher mind to look past the smoke screen. It also is troublesome when people disagree about something they know little to nothing about yet refuse to investigate. How is that crazy?
