Epstein’s ‘Lolita Express’ pilot testifies in Maxwell trial as flight data leaks — RT USA News

The pilot who flew pedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein and his
alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell between their high-end haunts has
testified at her sex-trafficking trial, confirming certain VIPs were on
Larry Visoski, who testified he flew Epstein to his private island in the Caribbean “at least every 10 days for 20 years,” told the court on Tuesday during the second day of Maxwell’s trial that it was “not unusual” for Maxwell – Epstein’s close confidante and the alleged procurer of the young girls from whom he received “erotic massages” – to sit with him in the cockpit and fly his helicopters.

The accused child sex trafficker is a licensed helicopter pilot,
though it’s not clear how many of the flights Visoski made with Epstein
were made with her present – in the cockpit or elsewhere on the plane.
He did recall flying both a “powder-blue-eyed” singer from
Interlochen Music Camp in Michigan and was familiar with Virginia
Roberts (now Virginia Roberts Giuffre) who has accused both Epstein and
Britain’s Prince Andrew of abuse.

While Visoski said that he “never saw any sexual activity,”
he also acknowledged that Epstein and Maxwell probably would have asked
him to stay in the cockpit had they been engaged in such illicit

He also testified that former US president Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew and Donald Trump, among others, flew on the jet.

testimony was not the only source of details related to the late sex
offender’s air travel to go public the week of Maxwell’s trial. The
Federal Aviation Administration managed to leak data on hundreds of
previously unknown flights by Epstein’s private planes in response to an
inquiry by Business Insider on Monday. While the publication had
previously asked for the data, they had been refused, and only later
received the records “in response to an unrelated request.

information was added to a searchable database featuring details on
Epstein’s mile-high companions, one of which now contains data on 2,618
flights by Maxwell’s alleged partner in crime between 1995 to July 6,
2019 – the day the plane landed in Teterboro, New Jersey, where Epstein
was arrested, never to fly again.

It included a list of 704
flights that were previously unknown to the public, many dating from a
three year ‘gap’ in the public record, from 2013 to 2016, when the jets’
movements were told to be “unaccounted for.” The mistakenly released records do not include passenger names, but may “offer clues” about the travel destinations of Epstein’s closest companions, Insider noted.

Fuels for your alcohol-burner (SHTF stoves 2/2) | The Tactical Hermit

3rd-Wave Housewifery

Why dwell on fuel?

No fuel = No coffee. It’s as simple as that. If you inherited a terrific Butane stove, say, with an amazing BTU output but now can’t find the quirky canisters needed to fire it up…No Coffee for You! So, as I noted in Part 1, “Stoves for SHTF,” my highest recommendation for the Total-Camp-Stove-Novice is an Alcohol-burner. This post will illustrate why. (I forgot to link to my inexpensive “Alocs” in the first part; it performed just as well as the Trangia®, and many knockoffs come with a tiny pot-stand.)

I did note in Part 1, that if you have little or no cookware and/or are moving into the “minimalist lifestyle,” consider purchasing your burner as part of a full Trangia® kit (which nests compactly for backpacking into a small mixing-bowl sized package). It’s kind of expensive, so keep reading and see the awesome alternative:…

Biden’s Build Back Better Bill Would Give Amnesty To 6.5 Million Illegal Immigrants, According To CBO | American Lookout | Truth2Freedom’s Blog

When Biden and the Democrats talk about the Build Back Better bill, they claim it will be great for the American people.

What they don’t mention is amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants, but that’s apparently part of the bill.

How many people even know about this?

Fauci Claims That When Lawmakers Criticize Him, “They’re Really Criticizing Science Because I am Science”…Can You Say “Smug”? – Kingsjester’s Blog

Fauci, during an interview with “Face the Nation,” dismissed opposition from such lawmakers as “noise,” saying they’re “really criticizing science.”

“Anybody who’s looking at this carefully realizes that there’s a distinct anti-science flavor to this, so if they get up and criticize science, nobody’s going to know what they’re talking about,” Fauci said. “But if they get up and really aim their bullets at Tony Fauci, well people can recognize that there’s a person there, so it’s easy to criticize, but they’re really criticizing science because I represent science.”

Paul took to Twitter Sunday morning to respond to Fauci’s claims, calling it “absolute hubris” for Fauci to declare that he represents science…

Samsung Bricks Smart TVs | Hackaday

… it is a bit alarming to realize the implication of such a feature — the manufacturer can reach into your TV and disable it from afar. One can assume that Samsung won’t abuse this capability, because acting otherwise would harm their reputation. In a press release, Samsung announced in a press release that any consumers whose sets were incorrectly bricked can have their sets un-bricked after demonstrating proper ownership.

Despite such good intentions, the mere existence of such a feature is worrisome…

Update on Omicron|WHO

On 26 November 2021, WHO designated the variant B.1.1.529 a variant of concern, named Omicron, on the advice of WHO’s Technical Advisory Group on Virus Evolution (TAG-VE). This
decision was based on the evidence presented to the TAG-VE
that Omicron has several mutations that may have an impact on how it
behaves, for example, on how easily it spreads or the severity of
illness it causes. Here is a summary of what is currently known.

Current knowledge about Omicron

in South Africa and around the world are conducting studies to better
understand many aspects of Omicron and will continue to share the
findings of these studies as they become available.

Transmissibility: It
is not yet clear whether Omicron is more transmissible (e.g., more
easily spread from person to person) compared to other variants,
including Delta. The number of people testing positive has risen in
areas of South Africa affected by this variant, but epidemiologic
studies are underway to understand if it is because of Omicron or other

Severity of disease: It is not yet
clear whether infection with Omicron causes more severe disease
compared to infections with other variants, including
Delta. Preliminary data suggests that there are increasing rates of
hospitalization in South Africa, but this may be due to increasing
overall numbers of people becoming infected, rather than a result of
specific infection with Omicron. There is currently no information to
suggest that symptoms associated with Omicron are different from those
from other variants. Initial reported infections were among university
students—younger individuals who tend to have more mild disease—but
understanding the level of severity of the Omicron variant will take
days to several weeks. All variants of COVID-19, including the Delta
variant that is dominant worldwide, can cause severe disease or death,
in particular for the most vulnerable people, and thus prevention is
always key.
