US State Dept Greenlights $2.2bln Sale of Tanks, Missiles to Taiwan Despite China’s Protests
TEHRAN (FNA)- Washington has given a green light to supply Taiwan with $2.2bln worth of US military tech, including tanks and surface-to-air missiles, in violation of the One China principle that views the island as part of the mainland.

“The State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to TECRO for the M1A2T Abrams Tanks and related equipment and support Stinger missiles and related equipment and support for an estimated cost of $2 billion,” the Pentagon announced on Monday, RT reported.

The purchase, which still needs to be approved by Congress, includes 108 units of M1A2T Abrams Tanks, which Taipei plans to use against China if it tries to reclaim sovereignty over the island.

The Pentagon maintains that the sale will not influence the “basic military balance” in the region and will merely “enhance” Taiwan's ability “to meet current and future regional threats and to strengthen its homeland defense”.

Beijing, however, made clear that it will battle any outside meddling and attempts to split Taiwan from mainland China, stressing that the country will not rule out the use of force to do so.

“Any interference in the Taiwan question is doomed to failure,” China’s defense minister General Wei Fenghe said at the Shangri-La Dialogue security summit in Singapore last month, adding, “No attempts to split China will succeed.”

“China firmly, consistently and unequivocally opposes US arms sales to Taiwan,” Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang stated in a separate statement last month, warning Washington against inflicting “serious damage to bilateral relations and peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait.”

Relations between Beijing and Taipei have deteriorated since Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, a member of the island’s pro-independence Democratic Progressive Party, took office in May 2016. China suspects the leader to be seeking formal independence with support from Washington.

米国の億万長者ジェフリー・エプスタインが未成年者の性的人身売買容疑で告発される 続き

US Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein Charged With Sex Trafficking
Epstein was arrested in New York and appeared in court on Monday, law enforcement officials told US media.

66-year-old hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein, who was previously investigated on more than one sexual exploitation charges, has been indicted Monday following his arrest on Saturday on a number of counts of alleged sex trafficking and abuse of minors - more specifically, one count of sex trafficking and one count of sex trafficking conspiracy.

Federal prosecutors ruled Epstein had sexually exploited dozens of girls and paid victims to recruit others.

Epstein was detained in New York and accused of the trafficking and abuse of dozens of girls he knew were underage at his homes in New York State and Florida between 2002 and 2005, prompting Attorney David Boies, who represents several of Epstein's accusers, to refer to Saturday's arrest as "an important step toward getting justice for the many victims of Mr. Epstein's sex trafficking enterprise."

He earlier reached a controversial plea deal in Florida over the same case, thereby avoiding prosecution on the said charges. The deal has been since challenged in court by a number of Epstein's accusers, who argued they had been denied a chance to voice their testimony, in violation of the federal Crime Victims' Rights Act - the fact later confirmed by a Florida judge.

The more I learn about Jeffrey Epstein and his pedo ring, the more bizarre links I uncover. I'm going to review three of them here.

1) Alex Acosta, the man who arranged for Epstein to get off the hook in Florida, is now Trump's Labor Secretary.

2) The man who hired Epstein when he was 20 years old to be a math teacher at NYC elite private school Dalton was Donald Barr, the father of William Barr, the current Attorney General of the United States.

3) Finally, and this one is a giant rabbit hole, relates to Ghislaine Maxwell, the woman accused of being Epstein's madam. Her father was Robert Maxwell...go ahead and do some digging into this guy.

Here's how Robert Maxwell died:
"On 5 November 1991, Maxwell was last in contact with the crew of his yacht, the Lady Ghislaine, at 4:25 a.m. local time, but was found to be missing later in the morning. Maxwell was presumed to have fallen overboard from the vessel, which was..

cruising off the Canary Islands, and his naked body was subsequently recovered from the Atlantic Ocean. The official ruling at an inquest held in December 1991 was death by a heart attack combined with accidental drowning."

Also, before his death Robert Maxwell was was under investigation for war crimes:

Finally, Robert Maxwell was accused of having links to Israeli spy agency Mossad by Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Seymour Hersh.

There is a lot going on here. I hope people are watching Epstein and Maxwell closely to prevent any further "suicides."

It seems like the whole Epstein thing was an elaborate professional blackmail operation intended to ensnare the rich and powerful. But who was really behind it, who was really bankrolling Epstein?
We really need to get to the bottom of this and then the dominos really fall.

※ Michael Krieger @LibertyBlitz氏の2019/7/9のツイート
Seems obvious Epstein was intentionally trying to get as many wealthy and powerful people as possible ensnared in his sick web. This wasn't just about his sick desires, but about getting blackmail on global big hitters. It's imperative we find out why. There's a reason.

※ Michael Krieger @LibertyBlitz氏の2019/7/9のツイート
This thing looks as if it was run like a professional operation/business. Just a hunch, but I wouldn't be surprised if he was a front person.

※ Michael Krieger @LibertyBlitz氏の2019/7/9のツイート
I keep hearing the same thing from people.
Everything about Epstein is bizarre.

"Epstein had caught the attention of the press when he had flown Bill Clinton on his jet to Africa. No one knew who he was or understood how he’d made his money."

Nope, not strange at all.

Read this article:
"One was the hidden source of his wealth−he claimed he’d fueled a lifestyle of vast homes, a private jet, and endless travel by managing the money of billionaires and taking a commission, a story that no one I spoke to believed."

I stand by my years old theory that there is a global network of nonces, and a global network of powerful people who blackmail/control said nonces

I’m near certain also that occultism plays a large part in these networks

The original Palm Beach investigation of Epstein & the cover up there is also an unbelievable story. The PB prosecutor gave Epstein a sweetheart deal & had the audacity to label the victims as prostitutes. The police detectives were so angry that they brought it higher up.
