Wnna know why the Democrat Socialists punch far above their actual weight, and end up winning far more battles than they of right ought to? Two reasons: 1) they’re shameless, and 2) they’re relentless. They simply cannot be rocked off of the offensive, disregarding any and all conceivable setbacks, embarrassments, failures, or outright catastrophes to keep driving the Eternal Agenda forward. Latest case in point: their favorite creepy-crawly pedophile, pimp, and financial benefactor.
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday said that Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta should resign over a 2008 plea deal involving financier Jeffrey Epstein and that if he doesn’t, President Trump should fire him.
“I am calling on Secretary Acosta to resign,” Schumer said during a Senate floor speech. “It is now impossible for anyone to have confidence in Secretary Acosta’s ability to lead the Department of Labor. If he refuses to resign, President Trump should fire him.”
Yeah, right. Because reasons, eh, Chuckles?
“Acosta chose to let him off easy. This is not acceptable. We cannot have as one of the leading appointed officials in America someone who has done this,” Schumer added of the plea deal received by Epstein.
Umm, well, not exactly, Chuckles. Not quite.
But now a mob has been loosed. What is striking about Acosta’s case is that he is being excoriated not for doing too much to defend a sex offender but too little to punish or convict — that is, he is being criticized not as a defense attorney, like Sullivan, Pattis, or Adams, but as a prosecutor. Just as defendants and their counsel must weigh their risks of conviction, so too must prosecutors assess the risks and costs of failing to meet that much higher burden of “beyond a reasonable doubt.” Epstein served jail time and probation and was compelled to register as a sex offender. Acosta has stated that “the plea deal’s results were ‘better’ than risking a trial, which he said had ‘a reduced likelihood of success.'”
Acosta weighed the evidence and the odds, choosing to make a deal that still put the pustulent Democrat-Socialist Epstein behind bars—which is far, far more than you can say for Bill “The Creep” Clinton, Chuck Schumer, or any other Democrat-Socialist alive. Details, from Acosta’s press conference earlier today:
“The Palm Beach State Attorney’s Office was ready to let Epstein walk free,” Acosta said. The Florida grand jury reviewed the evidence and recommended a single charge that included no jail time and no registering Epstein as a sex offender.
“Without [the U.S. Attorney Offices’] involvement, Epstein would have gotten away without charge. We believe that we proceeded appropriately,” Acosta said. “Based on the evidence, there was value to getting a guilty plea and having him registered.”
The U.S. Attorney’s Office intervention in the state process was incredibly rare. Acosta said he was determined to make Epstein go to jail, register as a sex offender, and provide restitution to the victims.
“The world need to be on notice that he was a sexual predator,” Acosta said. “Based on the evidence, there was value to getting a guilty plea and having him registered… He needed to go to jail. That was the focus.”
Acosta pressed the point that the case was ultimately under the jurisdiction of Florida, and “the work release was not what was bargained for,” Acosta said. “I fully thought he would be spending his time in jail.”
By the way, just guess who also signed off on the deal, as head of the FBI. Go on, guess. As for the Left’s near-reflexive sleazy, greasy attempt to use Epstein’s arrest to smear Trump as being every bit as tainted by his association with Epstein:
Perino asked Patterson about Trump’s remarks: “President Trump said earlier that he had a falling-out with Epstein about 15 years ago. Do you know what that was about?”
Patterson responded: “Well, I know that there were some complaints about Epstein at Mar-a-Lago and also I spoke to the head of the spa there. I said ‘did you ever meet Epstein?’ She said, ‘oh yes…he was inappropriate with some of the younger women there.’ She said she went to Trump and he threw him out of the club.”
At another point in the interview, Patterson said he “knows Trump didn’t know” about Epstein’s alleged criminal activity.
Investigative journalist Conchita Sarnoff told Fox News’ Shannon Bream on Monday night that when former President Bill Clinton traveled on Epstein’s private plane that there were “underage girls” on the plane and that he “many times” did not have his Secret Service detail with him.
Hmmm. The Creep slipping his SS leash to fly off to Orgy Island who even knows how many times, versus Trump getting wind of serious misconduct by a guy he barely knows and immediately 86’ing his ass? Why, JUST the same, not a whisper’s worth of difference between the two. Meanwhile, Clinton is squirming and wriggling and just generally doing what shitlibs do: lying his lying ass off.

And as always with The Creep, that’s merely the tip of the Iceberg O’ Lies. Elsewhere, King Cuck gets busy a-sucking and a-slurping in a True Conservative™ sploogefest.
So David French, who takes absurd tales about Trump at face value, is perplexedly trying to reconcile unsolicited Clinton tortured parsing with documented facts to figure how Bill might be telling the truth. Good grief. https://t.co/Y7qajVDjxc

Cherchez le Cerno update! Might this fat, juicy worm have a barbed hook hidden in it?
Author, journalist, and filmmaker Mike Cernovich told Breitbart News Daily on Tuesday that the establishment media only has an interest in the Jeffrey Epstein court battles in order to attack President Donald Trump.
Cernovich spoke with Breitbart News Daily host Alexander Marlow in the wake of billionaire Jeffrey Epstein’s arrest on sex trafficking charges. The Gorilla Mindset author fought to unseal court documents relating to a civil lawsuit in 2017 eventually led to Epstein’s arrest.
Despite the widespread interest in Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking crimes and who might be connected to them, the establishment media has spent more time attempting to link President Donald Trump to Epstein, without evidence, than to the actual sex trafficking case.
Cernovich contended that the media only has interest in the Epstein case as a means to attack Trump through his relationship with Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta. Acosta, as a then-Miami prosecutor in 2007, struck a deal with Epstein in which the billionaire would plead guilty to prostitution charges in exchange for dropping all other charges.
“The media only care about Epstein as a way to go after Trump because of the Alexander Acosta angle,” Cernovich said.
Cernovich added that “They are trying to create a conspiracy theory involving Donald Trump and Jeff Epstein despite no evidence that Trump ever flew to any island or partied with Epstein or did anything.”
Despite much of the media’s attack on Trump, Yahoo News reported that a lawyer representing a trio of Epstein accusers explained that Trump assisted authorities in building a civil lawsuit against Epstein.
Trump also banned Epstein from his Florida resort Mar-a-Lago because Epstein allegedly sexually assaulted an underage girl at the club.
Marlow noted that Breitbart News Economics Editor John Carney said that no one on Wall Street knows how Epstein made his money. The Breitbart News Daily host described Epstein as a “very shadowy” figure.
Cernovich suggested that Epstein might have run a blackmail scheme to make his billions of dollars.
Well, nobody can claim it’s all a completely outlandish idea, that’s for sure.
