REAL JUSTICE, TEXAS STYLE: Pedophile’s Body Found On Train Tracks After Acquittal On Technicality Reader 11/06/2017 (Mon) 23:07:34 Id: 7059fd [Preview] No. 2915 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A notorious Texas pedophile, who was charged with raping a 6-year-old girl and then acquitted on a technicality, has been killed by a vigilante group who tied his body to train tracks.

Anik Mustafi, 34, from Houston, Texas, was discovered in the early hours of Saturday morning, his body cut in half by a freight train.

The train driver alerted the authorities that he had run over the body, explaining that the body was located “just around a bend” and although he received an automated alert that something may be on the tracks, he “had no time to stop the train.”

Mustafi was arrested in May and charged with predatory sexual assault against a child and first degree sexual abuse after his neighbor claimed she caught him molesting her 6-year-old daughter. It was alleged Mustafi, a factory worker, groomed the girl for months before luring her into his car and assaulting her.

However after being charged, Mustafi walked free from the court after the judge controversially ruled that the prosecution did not have enough evidence to convict the 34-year-old. A forensic laboratory “accidentally destroyed” evidence the prosecution was relying on to prove their case.

The judge apologized to the family of the alleged victim and acknowledged there are “flaws in our legal system” that sometimes allow perpetrators to walk free on technicalities.

The alleged victim’s family said they were “devastated” that Mustafi had been allowed to walk free from court.

But Anik Mustafi’s freedom did not last long. It seems local Houston pedophile vigilantes decided to take matters into their own hands, and “kidnapped” the 34-year-old factory worker early on Saturday morning, before tying him to a train track at a location which guaranteed the driver would not have time to stop.

Investigating officers described his death scene as resembling a “gangland-style execution“.

The Tor Project Beefs Up Security With More Onion Services, New Encryption Schemes Reader 11/06/2017 (Mon) 17:54:51 Id: fb20b5 [Preview] No. 2910 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
While some people still associate the Tor anonymity network solely with the criminal elements of the dark web, it’s increasingly being used by publishers such as Facebook and the New York Times to avoid censorship in certain countries, along with everyday users wishing to protect their privacy. But the technology is over ten years old now, and more governments and hackers are targeting its systems, which is why a next generation of onion services is being added.

The Tor Project—the group behind Tor—has been working on the update, which will strengthen security and keep data anonymized, for the last four years. It’s now available in an alpha release.

On the cryptography side, we are looking at cutting-edge crypto algorithms and improved authentication schemes. On the protocol end, we redesigned the directory system to defend against info leaks and reduce the overall attack surface. For example, did you know that in the legacy onion system, the network could learn about your onions? However, with this next-generation design, your onion address is completely private and only known to you and whoever you choose to disclose it to.

Most Tor users are unlikely to notice any of the changes, though the new .onion domain names will be longer. The Tor Project said that as the current code stabilizes, more features will be added in the future, including advanced client authorization, improved guard algorithms, and offline service keys.

As the bugs are ironed out and extra features are added to the new iteration, the legacy onion system will remain the default option, though the plan is to phase out the older technology in a few years’ time.

Back in February, a vigilante hacker associated with hacktivist group Anonymous took down about 20 percent of the Dark Web, apparently a reaction to discovering gigabytes of child pornography.

Discussing the cryptography that’s used in the new implementation, George Kadianakis, from the Tor Project, said:

“We are looking at cutting-edge crypto algorithms and improved authentication schemes. On the protocol end, we redesigned the directory system to defend against info leaks and reduce the overall attack surface. For example, did you know that in the legacy onion system, the network could learn about your onions? However, with this next-generation design, you onion address is completely private and only known to you and whoever you choose to disclose it to.”

Good! President Trump Drafting Executive Order To Kill Obamacare's Individual Mandate Reader 11/06/2017 (Mon) 16:29:48 Id: 49eeb2 [Preview] No. 2907 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
After having previously cut so-called "cost reduction subsidies" (see: Trump To Scrap Crucial Obamacare Insurer Subsidy) and the marketing budget for Obamacare, Trump is now reportedly ready to also repeal the legislation's controversial "individual mandate" which taxes people who choose to forego health insurance.

According to the Washington Examiner an executive order has already been drafted to scrap the mandate but has not yet been executed only due to ongoing GOP debates over whether or not to include the repeal in the pending tax bill.

https://archive.fo/23LpS
http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/trump-readies-executive-order-to-unravel-obamacares-individual-mandate/article/2639728

The Trump administration has prepared an executive order that would unravel Obamacare's individual mandate, but has put it on hold to see whether it might be included in the Republican tax bill instead, a GOP senator told the Washington Examiner.

According to the senator, an executive order is sitting with the Office of Management and Budget waiting for approval. President Trump decided to delay the executive order after Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., pushed for the inclusion of the individual mandate repeal in the tax bill, and has been supportive of its inclusion in statements he has made on Twitter.

Of course, including the individual mandate repeal in the tax legislation is intended create billions in budget savings and offset lower tax receipts but it could come with the unfortunate side effect of alienating potential mainstream GOP votes in the Senate who refused to support the Obamacare repeal efforts earlier this year.

Including repeal of the individual mandate in the tax bill instead of through executive order would create billions in budget savings that Republicans need to pay for tax cuts. According to a Congressional Budget Office report published in December 2016, repeal of the individual mandate would save $416 billion over a decade, since it would mean fewer subsidy payments to people who sign up. A new CBO report is expected Monday.

The repeal is not currently in the tax bill, known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, but House Speaker Paul Ryan said this weekend that it was on the negotiation table among House Republicans.

Good! Saudi Purge Signals Death Of Bush-Clinton-Obama Era Globalism Reader 11/06/2017 (Mon) 00:20:07 Id: 73db5d [Preview] No. 2883 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

The Clinton and Bush era of the last 30 years is about to come to an end in light of the sudden Saudi Arabian purge of Clinton and Bush allies.

Brazile’s book “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House” contains several bombshells, including that Hillary Clinton did in fact rig the 2016 primary against Bernie Sanders, and that Brazile felt like a “slave” who feared for her life following the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich.

“That means that Brazile knew Rich had been murdered for political purposes,” says insider Roger Stone, adding that Julian Assange of WikiLeaks confirmed his sources were not Russian, and were in “great physical danger.”

Brazile is the first prominent Democrat to turn on Clinton in what appears to be a sacrifice by the establishment, as Clinton’s self-centered behavior no longer serves their interests, and they need to make the persecution of Trump seem less politically motivated.

Brazile even pointed out that Bernie was more popular than Clinton, saying: “I did not trust the polls. I told [Sanders] I had visited states around the country and I found a lack of enthusiasm for her everywhere.”

The accurate coverage of the Uranium One scandal by the mainstream media is another indicator that the establishment is ready to dump Clinton.

Another significant development tied to Clinton’s downfall is the sudden purge of corrupt royalty in Saudi Arabia by King Salman, including ten princes and 38 senior cabinet members.

It’s worth noting that Saudi Arabia accounted for 20% of the Clinton campaign’s funding in 2016.

It’s also well-known that the Bush and Clinton family are closely tied to each other, as W. Bush has referred to Bill Clinton as “a brother from another mother,” and they’ve worked together for years on initiatives like the Presidential Leadership Scholars program.

The Bush family has also had a close relationship with Saudi Arabia going back decades.

Former Saudi Ambassador Prince Bandar was known as “Bandar Bush” due to his longtime friendship with George W. Bush.

The former president even helped Bandar get out the U.S. days after 9/11.

“After he met on Sept. 13, 2001, with President Bush in the White House, where the two old family friends shared cigars on the Truman Balcony, the FBI evacuated dozens of Saudi officials from multiple cities, including at least one Osama bin Laden family member on the terror watch list,” reported the New York Post last year.

“Instead of interrogating the Saudis, FBI agents acted as security escorts for them, even though it was known at the time that 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudi citizens.”

Saudi Arabia’s purge of pro-Clinton royalty like bin Talal is more evidence that the old guard establishment is finished with the Clinton/Bush machine because their brand of globalism is failing.

Second Saudi Prince Confirmed Killed During Corruption Crackdown Reader 11/06/2017 (Mon) 16:18:03 Id: 7acb4a [Preview] No. 2906 del
Second Saudi Prince Confirmed Killed During Corruption Crackdown

Following the death of Prince Mansour bin-Muqrin in a helicopter crash near the Yemen border yesterday, the Saudi Royal Court has confirmed the death of Prince Abdul Aziz bin Fahd - killed during a firefight as authorities attempted to arrest him.

The death has been confirmed by the Saudi royal court.

The Duran and Al-Masdar News both report that the prince died when his security contingent got into a firefight with regime gunmen attempting to make an arrest.

Prince Aziz (44) who was the youngest son of King Fahad.

The Duran's Adam Garrie points out that Prince Abdul Aziz was deeply involved in Saudi Oger Ltd, a company which until it ceased operations in the summer of this year, was owned by the Hariri family. Former Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri was punitively in charge of the company until it ceased operations.

Prince Abdul Aziz’s strange and sudden death which is said to have occurred during an attempted arrest, sheds light on the theory that the clearly forced resignation of former Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri had more to do with internal Saudi affairs than the Saudi attempt to bring instability to Lebanon.

The Saudi Royal family has now lost two princes in 24 hours.

As Al Jazeera notes, in this Saudi version of 'Game of Thrones', the 32-year-old Bin Salman shows that he is willing to throw the entire region into jeopardy to wear the royal gown.

Neo-con Bush Family Fears Globalists Will Lose Control Of Republican Party Reader 11/05/2017 (Sun) 22:53:50 Id: d2ad6d [Preview] No. 2872 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Neo-con Bush Family Fears Globalists Will Lose Control Of Republican Party

Former President George W. Bush and his father, former President George H.W. Bush, both criticize President Trump in a new book to be released this month, with George W. Bush admitting that, despite Trump’s political affiliation, he’s worried “that I will be the last Republican president.”

George H.W. Bush also calls Trump a “blowhard” in the book, “The Last Republicans,” by Mark K. Updegrove, which was previewed by The New York Times and CNN on Friday.

"I don't like him. I don't know much about him, but I know he's a blowhard. And I'm not too excited about him being a leader,” the senior Bush said, according to the author. He also commented on Trump’s “ego.”

“Wow, this guy doesn't know what it means to be president,” the younger Bush said. He indicated that a president should not “exploit the anger, incite it” but rather “come up with ideas to deal with it.”

Neither man voted for Trump in the last election, and George H.W. Bush confirms in the book that he voted for Hillary Clinton. George W. Bush said he left the top of his ballot blank and did not vote for Clinton because she has “bad judgment.”

And THIS is likely the reason our founding fathers wanted a two party system. If both parties become too corrupt people can easily purge incumbents from either party, take back control over one and vote the other corrupted party out completely weeding out both sides with one single purge. BRILLIANT!

Believe it or not I think a lot of leftists are starting to figure this out too. I have some relatives who voted for Bernie Sanders and they are steaming pissed at the Democrat establishment. There is currently an underreported conflict going on within the Democrat party as well as the Republican party. A lot of liberal grassroots activists are supporting alternative candidates these days which could undermine the establishment even further. This is healthy for our democracy, as I have have often preached we need to vote the career incumbents out from both parties.



Mainstream Media Fails to Cover Donna Brazile’s Confession That DNC Rigged Primary for Clinton Reader 11/05/2017 (Sun) 23:00:42 Id: 7110df [Preview] No. 2874 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Three major news networks—ABC, CBS, and NBC— failed to cover on their nightly news programs Thursday the explosive allegations from Donna Brazile that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) rigged the 2016 Democratic primary in Hillary Clinton’s favor.

Brazile claimed in an excerpt from her soon-to-be-released book that Clinton’s campaign had control over the DNC’s pocketbook and strategy in exchange for paying down the Party’s 2012 presidential campaign debt, explaining that the Party skewed the primary in Clinton’s favor through backroom financial deals so she could easily beat Bernie Sanders.

Despite these bombshell allegations, ABC, CBS, and NBC did not cover these revelations on their evening newscasts.

https://archive.fo/jmO2h

Disgraced former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has admitted that the DNC rigged the primaries against Bernie Sanders in order to allow their favorite candidate to win.

Schultz issued a statement after he successor, interim chair Donna Brazile, released a book excerpt where she said Wasserman Schultz was ‘not a good manager’ and allowed Clinton to take over the party.

‘It was a tremendous honor to be asked by President Obama to serve as chair of the DNC,’ the Florida Democrat said in a statement.

‘I am proud of the work our team did to support Democrats up and down the ballot in the 2016 election and to re-elect the president in 2012.’

Hillary Clinton’s campaign seized control of the Democratic National Committee months before she won her party’s nomination, diverted resources away from struggling state parties, and allowed the national party to accumulate a mountain of debt, writes Brazile.

OK, so now we have some admission and confirmation that this primary rigging took place. So my question is WHY the lack of federal investigations into this? How would this not be considered illegal? I said it before and I'll say it again: the FBI has become too politicized, they are quick to jump on conservatives when it comes to wrong-doing but when liberals get caught doing something unethical it gets completely ignored and swept under the rug. Clearly there is some bias going on. No one should be exempt from the law.



Massive New Leak Exposes Tax-Haven Secrets, US Political & Big Buisness Connections To Russian Industry Reader 11/06/2017 (Mon) 14:40:22 Id: bf5844 [Preview] No. 2900 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
One year after the Panama Papers revealed billions in assets are held in offshore "tax haven" accounts by some of the world's most powerful and wealthy individuals, on Sunday a huge new leak of financial documents disclosed by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) - a global network that won the Pulitzer Prize this year for its work on the Panama Papers - and its 94 media partners has revealed how the powerful and ultra-wealthy, including the Queen's private estate, secretly invest vast amounts of cash in offshore tax havens. Of particular interest for the US media will be the discovery that Donald Trump's commerce secretary, Wilbur Ross, is shown to have a stake in a firm dealing with Russians sanctioned by the US, including Vladimir Putin's immediate family, which Ross failed to clearly disclose prior to his confirmation.

The leak, dubbed the Paradise Papers, contains 13.4 million documents, mostly from the Bermuda-based offshore finance law firm, Appleby, has been investigated by 95 media groups, with the findings released today. The records expand on the revelations from the leak of offshore documents that spawned the 2016 Panama Papers investigation. The new files shine a light on a different cast of underexplored island havens, including some with cleaner reputations and higher price tags, such as the Cayman Islands and Bermuda.

The year-long investigation exposes offshore interest and activities of more than 120 politicians and world leaders. That includes ties between Russia and U.S President Donald Trump’s billionaire commerce secretary Wilbur Ross. It also highlights the offshore activities of another 12 Trump allies.

The Paradise Papers' key findings summarized:

Reveals offshore interests and activities of more than 120 politicians and world leaders, including Queen Elizabeth II, and 13 advisers, major donors and members of U.S. President Donald J. Trump

Exposes the tax engineering of more than 100 multinational corporations, including Apple, Nike and Botox-maker Allergan

Reveals tax haven shopping sprees by multinational companies in Africa and Asia that use shell companies in Mauritius and Singapore to reduce taxes

Shines a light on secretive deals and hidden companies connected to Glencore, the world’s largest commodity trader, and provides detailed accounts of the company’s negotiations in the Democratic Republic of the Congo for valuable mineral resources

Provides details of how owners of jets and yachts, including royalty and sports stars, used Isle of Man tax-avoidance structures

The BBC reports that as with last year's Panama Papers leak, the documents were obtained by the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung, which called in the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) to oversee the investigation. Sunday's revelations form only a small part of a week of disclosures that will expose the tax and financial affairs of some of the hundreds of people and companies named in the data.

Update: A Commerce spokesman told Fox News that Ross was not involved with Navigator’s decision to engage in business with Sibur, a publicly traded company, which was not under sanction at the time and is not currently. The spokesman also said Ross, the Trump administration’s point man on trade and manufacturing policy, “never met” Shamalov, and generally has supported the Trump administration’s sanctions against Russia, while recusing himself from matters focused on transoceanic shipping vessels.

Still, as Fox News notes, "the published reports by news agencies including NBC and the BBC likely will raise more questions about whether those associated with Trump are connected to Russia, amid special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether both sides colluded to influence the 2016 White House race. It wasn’t immediately clear how many partners Ross might have or what the profit-sharing agreement might be. The reports also indicated there was no sign Ross broke any disclosure rules.

Mueller and the FBI should be having a hootenanny over these leaks, hopefully they are not too bias and look into ALL the revelations and not just picking and choosing who to exempt from the law. We now know that both Democrats and Republicans are involved in collusion with Russia and if there are smackdowns hopefully they root out both sides of the corrupt political establishment. The FBI should not be politicized when it comes to reigning in corruption.



WHY The Catalan Independence Movement Is Failing Reader 11/06/2017 (Mon) 14:10:33 Id: 7fbaf5 [Preview] No. 2896 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
WHY The Catalan Independence Movement Is Failing

https://archive.fo/kReDz
http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-04/why-catalan-independence-movement-failing

The Catalan fight for independence is not how conflicts are fought throughout history, let alone how they are won.

Some movements for national independence have succeeded in history, others have not. Presently, it seems that the Catalan bid is destined to fail. Maybe in the future Catalans will change their strategy and achieve their goal, but at the moment of writing the Catalan independence movement can be described as a storm in a teacup.

We therefore looked at what worked in the past and is missing right now, or what clearly is not working.

1. Trusting the EU? A Bad Plan!

Catalan independence is about claiming sovereignty from Madrid, just to immediately relinquish it to Brussels. If this had been decades ago, before the 1992 Maastricht Treaty, maybe it wouldn’t have mattered. Now, especially after the Brexit vote, the EU leadership has decided to push forward with the European Federalist project, starting possibly with a Eurozone financial minister as proposed by French President Macron.The latter’s plan also includes a Eurozone budget and that’s where the Catalan plan makes even less sense: part of the resentment towards Madrid is because Catalans do not like regional fiscal transfers towards the rest of Spain. Would they like it if fiscal transfers were towards other European regions via Macron’s proposed Eurozone budget?

Catalans also resent the “austerity” imposed by Madrid. Yet it’s not Madrid imposing it, it’s Brussels. Yet Catalans want to dump Madrid because of austerity and then join Brussels?

2. Cucked leadership.

The now former Catalan President Puigdemont is a champion of missing opportunities. If there ever was a chance to succeed, it was right after the referendum, regardless of its democratic credibility, when the moral was high and there was a momentum of political support. Puigdemont flinched. His first speech after the referendum left many supporters confused. He then signed a declaration of independence, just to suspend it within seconds.

Can anyone imagine the Founding Fathers of the United States of America doing the same? Or the Greek ones after the war with the Ottoman Empire?

When Puigdemont finally decided to go forward, it was too late. He had missed his date with history. There might not be another one.

3. Disarmed society.

American supporters of the Second Amendment will love this one. It is not necessarily an endorsement, but a historical observation. The former claim to fight against centralism just like their ancestors fought against the King of England. Catalans want to fight against Castilian centralism and the King of Spain (independent Catalonia would be a republic).

The irony is that a sizeable portion of Catalan nationalists within the Catalan parliament are left-of-the-centre progressives.We wonder thus if Catalan progressives now feel that the US Second Amendment is still a “relic of the past” and similarly shun the need for a “well regulated militia” against an oppressive government, like American progressives do.

Looking at historical precedents, why are the French still celebrating the “Bastille Day” as a symbol of their revolution? The fortress didn’t serve only as a prison, it was also an armory.

Catalonia also lacks its own army, while it can only rely on its own police force, the “Mossos d’Esquarda”. Not enough to stop the Spanish forces to regain control of the situation with ease.

4. Lack of international recognition or foreign support.

We once again look at past examples: the French fought on the side of the American revolutionaries against the British; the British and the Russians fought on the side of the Greek in 1821. More recent examples, the US backed Slovenia, Bosnia, Croatia, Kosovo and Montenegro in the successive splits from Serbia-dominated Yugoslavia. Similarly the US is backing the Kurdish ambition in Syria, while the Russians backed the Crimeans in their secession from Ukraine.

No one backed Catalonia. Nor has anyone so far recognized its independence. Foreign backing generally comes from powers interested in destabilizing the country facing a secessionist movement. No one seems to be interested in destabilizing Spain right now.

5. The “snowflake” generation.

Mass crowd rallies waving flags can be inspiring. They can also be hard to control once in movement. Not every crowd is the same, though. Waving flags does not make you independent. Not even the unilateral declaration of independence makes you so. A conditio sine qua non for an aspiring sovereign state is the ability to control its territory and defend it. Catalonia doesn’t seem to be able to do that.

When you look at the crowds of Catalan nationalists, there’s a widespread support among the youth. None of them however did any military service whatsoever. This is a common issue in Western Europe. The last generation that fought a war, the Second World War, is either dead or on its way out. Since then, military service has been progressively abolished. New generations don’t know how to fight.

They also don’t seem to be aware of what exactly they were doing. The Spanish Constitution forbids secession, hence Catalan independence is a rebellion against the constitutional order and as such is being treated by the Spanish government: it’s a revolution. When the Spanish police reacted against the Catalan referendum, Catalan nationalists took it on social media to express their outrage against “fascist Spain”. The disdain seemed to be shared by many Westerners. However, in every other part of the world, and at any other point in history, events of this type would leave dead bodies on the floor, regardless of “fascism”.

We are not inciting violence with this, we are simply making a historical observation.

It seems that the great plan of Catalan nationalists for independence was “Step aside while I make a revolution, otherwise I’m going to call you names. On Twitter. And maybe make a video on Youtube and share it with my friends on Facebook.” That’s it.

While Kurds are fighting Islamic terrorists and brandishing AK-47s in Syria, Catalans are brandishing their Iphones. The former are fighting for independence, the latter look like they are attending a pop concert.

Catalans over-relied on social media outrage to support their cause, just to find out that after a few days, people go back to their lives and lose interest. Nobody lifted a finger in favour of Catalonia. Not even Catalans themselves. It might be that the region is still wealthy despite some problems, hence a civil war would result in more material loss than the Catalans are ready to put up with for the prize of independence. This is not how revolutions are done.



BOOM! Tony Podesta Arrested, Indictments Issued Against Hillary Clinton & John Podesta Reader 11/05/2017 (Sun) 22:49:27 Id: 70fded [Preview] No. 2871 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Democrat lobbyist Tony Podesta was arrested Saturday night and taken into custody by the U.S. Marshals office as new indictments were also issued against Hillary Clinton and John Podesta.

Tony Podesta is the founder of the Podesta Group and brother of John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s former campaign chair. He was forced to resign earlier this week amid an ongoing criminal investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, as rumors swirled that a sealed indictment may have been issued against him.

Scoop: Tony Podesta is one of the sealed indictments.

— James Brower 🍦 (@jbro_1776) November 3, 2017

According to sources within the U.S. Marshals Office, Tony voluntarily handed himself in late on Saturday night on the basis that there would be no media coverage of his arrest.

Lawyers for Hillary Clinton and John Podesta are pleading with Mueller to keep their indictments sealed and have similarly agreed to hand themselves in next week under the same agreement.

Despite the media blackout, a public record confirms Tony Podesta’s arrest in Washington D.C and can be viewed online here.

I have my doubts too anon, we still have a very corrupted government. We can only hope and pray they will be brought to justice.

The good news is they are being exposed, and their hypocrisy is oh so obvious to many many Americans and others around the world. People are waking up, and the more that do, the better the world will be for it.

Nevertheless, I see three major blows to the globalist establishment as of recent: Austria's election (pro-freedom nationalists won), the election in the Czech Republic (a huge blow to George Soros and his globalist ilk) and more recently the Saudi Arabia coup/purge which has lead to the deaths and arrests of major globalist elites (many who were involved with the Clinton Foundation and the narco neo-con Bush crime family).

Make no mistake: the globalists are losing control, and fast. We are in exciting times. We are living in dangerous times too. Be vigilant. Be prepared.



Lawsuit: Top Soros Fund Manager Ran Human Trafficking ‘Sex Dungeon’ of Imprisoned Women in NYC Reader 11/06/2017 (Mon) 01:27:28 Id: b03b67 [Preview] No. 2885 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A scathing and massive $27 million lawsuit was just filed on behalf of three Florida models against a former top investment fund manager for George Soros. Howard ‘Howie’ Rubin, 62—who was featured in Liar’s Poker, a book described as ‘defining Wall St.’—is accused of rape, assault, kidnapping, and human trafficking.

The women in the lawsuit, two of which are former Playboy bunnies, accuse Rubin of operating an $8 million penthouse in Manhattan which contains a secret “dungeon of sex toys, masks, and BDSM apparatus.” In this penthouse, according to the lawsuit, the women would be imprisoned while Rubin had his violent way with them.

According to the lawsuit, Rubin would lure the girls to New York on JetBlue flights after connecting with them on Instagram. Once they arrived in Manhattan, Rubin would drug them, gag and bound them, and then violently beat and rape them while in his sex dungeon. The lawsuit states that he hit a woman so hard that she passed out as he demanded she call him “daddy.”

“I’m going to rape you like I rape my daughter,” he would say according to two of the alleged victims. He would then attack and punch them so violently and aggressive, that one of his blows “flipped” a woman’s breast implant.

As the Mail reports, they say he then covered up the alleged rapes and attacks and hushed them by paying them up to $5,000 each.

According to the Mail:

Rubin, a notorious Wall Street trader who is blamed for incurring $377 million of losses at Merrill Lynch in 1987 and who is featured in Liar’s Poker, has not yet responded to their allegations. He is named alongside associated Stephanie Shon, Jennifer Powers, and lawyer Yifat Schnur in the lawsuit.

Rubin has been married since the 1980s to his former Harvard Business School classmate Mary Henry. They have three children together.

The lawsuit describes four different incidents in 2016. The women sometimes traveled to meet him in pairs and on other occasions they went alone, they said.
