Re, the Epstein saga, I’ve been curious to understand how Maxwell ended up as part of the procurement racket. Seems a very odd thing for a woman to be so integral to a pedophilia ring. Almost unheard of?

I have no factual backing for this, but I believe it is unheard of simply because it is severely underreported to authorities (police, CPS, schools, doctors).

GJ, to be clear, I’m not talking about things like the women teachers who screw the underage male students for fun. I’m positive you’re right about the underreporting there.

I’m talking about the women who are producing underage girls on behalf of men. Particularly Maxwell who supposedly had a (presumably physical) relationship with Epstein.

Just seems really, really strange.

AB,
Got ya. Guessing again here, a lifetime of grooming can get people to do things they otherwise wouldn’t. Ask yourself who is a young girl more likely to trust an older male or a maternal type female. These women are placed in those roles because it works.

Not letting me bow out just yet, a-mom? :-)

Thanks for the link to the meta analysis, but I haven't doubted that these diets work, at least for some people. Keto or low-carb has obviously been great for some fellow commenters here, in fact, thanks to your recommendations.

Aside from any other possible health benefits, my question is whether the weight loss results from a reduction in carbs specifically, or simply a reduction in calories. And one of the reasons I wonder about this are the anecdotes from people who claim to have reduced appetites after adopting the high-fat diet.

If you or anyone else here ever run across a study in which a decent sample of people switched from a "balanced" diet to a low- or no-carb diet, yet consumed the same or more total calories after the switch and still lost weight, I think that would be interesting and would support the theories about insulin and fat storage put forth by Taubes and others. Unfortunately, the meta analysis seems to have only looked at published papers that claimed the diets resulted in weight loss, which I haven't doubted.

--Almost unheard of?--

Not at all. Think of Epstein as a cult leader, not just a sick creep and you'll be closer to the truth.
NXVIM and just about every sick, isolated system that is coed [excluding sickos like NAMBLA for instance] features women in trusted positions helping out the almost always male central figure.

Just to throw a spanner into the works before I'm out for the day here is a fairly long interview with Dr Valter Longo, director of the USC institute on longevity [or something like that].
He is a researcher and says he looks at science first and recommends a diet with very little protein, nearly vegan, with some fish tossed in occasionally and then a five day fast every three or four months.
Going to get his book. I also saw a youtube where he's interviewed by Dr Gundry. Haven't watched it yet but I'm guessing there are some paradoxes in their approaches. :)
He does sell his own stuff when you do the five day fast thing but claims he doesn't personally get any of the proceeds and admits you can pretty much do the same thing without buying his stuff and tells you what it is.

That tweet of the President's at 10:24 is true.

All they have are ways to confiscate money and spend it with no return. Businesses would lay people off and some would close.

Somali Refugees and ISIS Supporters Arrested This Week Joined a Gym So They Could Do Beheadings

One of the jihadists wrote to the undercover FBI agent that he ‘had a thirst for blood’ and that he was looking forward to beheading people.

“I love jihad so much,” Mohamed told the second undercover agent in December, “If I go to Syria I want to be the beheading person….I want to kill them so many I am thirsty their blood.”

According to court documents the two had joined a gym so they could get strong for beheadings.

I've linked this article from February 2018 in the past. It provides one highly plausible answer to your question. Ghislaine Maxwell's father is mentioned in the article and if this article is correct, he was a Soviet mole who helped run pedophile rings to entrap Westerners and subject them to blackmail. His daughter is just carrying on with the family business.

Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking trial expected to begin no sooner than June 2020

Manuel Transmission

Ext, the following rant is not directed at you, but you get credit for triggering an old grump rattling around the back of my mind.

Calories: what are they? Well, as many here may recall, a caloric bomb is a device to measure the heat rise from combusting a measured amount of fuel — mainly a liquid combustible like gasoline or diesel.

How the medical/nutrition crowd ever latched onto it, I have no clue, but the leap to what goes on in our gut bears little to the pure lab test.

To go from the absurd to the merely forced fit, does my car’s mileage correlate with the total BPD consumed in this country? How about the average speed of my commute every day? How about the octane of the fuel? How about the control map in my ECU (which I’m about buy one where I can tweak it)?

So, without sticking my nose into the details, which perhaps no one has a clue about, is our gut burn rate correlate with the order of consuming fat and then delaying a couple hours before consuming carbs (SBW?)? Same ‘calories’ different conversion process. Ultimately, if the desire to eat is damped by losing the carb urge, but the body gets the right amount of fuel to keep the engine running well, that seems about four steps away from the measured output of the caloric bomb.

I've wondered about that, too, MT. A calorie is defined as the amount of heat required to raise 1 gram of water by 1 degree Centigrade. From this link, the "calories" people talk about regarding food and dieting are actually kilo-calories, the heat energy required to raise 1 kilogram of water by 1 degree Centigrade.

From that same link, this is kind of interesting:

Carbohydrate: 4 calories per gram
Protein: 4 calories per gram
Fat: 9 calories per gram

Ben Carson went to Baltimore this morning. I have had on a Periscope from the Baltimore TV station (Fox) but most of it has been him walking around chatting with housing supervisors and stuff.

At the end he took a few press questions, and one thing I found out was that for EIGHT YEARS HUD HAD NO ONE IN CHARGE OF FINANACES!!!

They now have a dashboard (I assume a computer system) where they can track the money, see where it's going, and how quickly it is being spent.

It sounds to me like HUD was just a big money pit until he got there. Good grief!

Whomever the Dem leadership selects will win the Dem primary. Remains to be seen how the Dem primary voters will like the selection, but they are of secondary importance.

Tom R

The Baltimore scandal is going to be a gold mine for Trump, the RNC campaign ad creators, and GOP candidates nationwide in 2020. In the Democrat debates almost all candidates claim the answer to solving the nation's problems and creating a Progressive utopian state is to enact socialist policies funded by raising taxes on the middle and upper class.

Trump and the GOP can point out how successful that socialist agenda will turn out by pointing to Baltimore. If Baltimore received $16 billion in federal funding and is still a complete shithole, then what rational person with an IQ higher than Forrest Gump would believe the Progressive's socialist agenda can solve any problem?

DrJ

Ext,

ManTran's point was different. A calorie (yes, it is a kilocalorie for food-related things) is simply a measure of energy. Any will do -- you can use Joules or BTUs if you like.

His point is that the energy in food is measured by burning it to CO2, water, and a few nitrogen- and sulfur-bearing compounds. That bears little relationship to how food is metabolized, and what we excrete.

Something could be loaded with calories (as measured by a bomb calorimeter), but if it barely is metabolized before it is excreted, then the effect on the body has little to do with the calories contained in what was consumed.

That's valid.

Porchlight

This will sound ridiculous because it is but if the Communist/Progtard financiers funding the Democrat party decide none of the current 20 candidates can beat Trump AND assuming they think Big Mike Obama can't either, I can see them trying to recruit a famous hardcore leftwing actor like George Clooney to be the savior candidate. He would attract the Communist/Progtard vote, he would be good at combining his acting skills and reading from a teleprompter, and most importantly he knows he would be a figurehead POTUS doing whatever the Communist/progtard financiers told him to do.

The fact we are even having this discussion to me is a sign Trump is going to win 2020 in a landslide.
