Jeffrey Epstein’s Secret Settlement with Prince Andrew Accuser Will Soon Be Revealed

Prince Andrew Split 2 UP split thumb 6

The secret financial settlement Jeffrey Epstein paid to the accuser of Prince Andrew will finally be made public.  Epstein clandestinely paid a sum of money to Virginia Roberts Giuffre, a woman who accused Prince Andrew of sexual assault on multiple occasions.  Giuffre is currently engaged in a legal battle with Andrew.  Giuffre alleges Andrew sexually assaulted her three times when she was 17 years of age. 

About the Civil Settlement

The United Kingdom’s royal legal practitioners are adamant that the civil settlement that has remained secret for years provides extensive legal protection for Andrew.  The legal team also insists this settlement provides a legal shield for others supposedly involved in the abuse and alleged coverup, from any and all legal liability resulting from Giuffre’s accusations.

Epstein’s signature is on the legal agreement with Giuffre.  This secret settlement was signed in 2008.  The agreement was written in a manner meant to protect Andrew against an ensuing lawsuit that would undoubtedly damage his public character and possibly lead to significant financial loss.

Epstein went on to commit suicide in his New York City jail cell while awaiting trial for alleged sex trafficking crimes.  The nature of Epstein’s death has been questioned by conspiracy theorists who insist the supposed sex trafficker was killed before he could reveal details about public figures who visited his “sex island”, as it has often been referred to in the mainstream press.  

Some conspiracy theorists have gone as far as insinuating Epstein was a CIA asset, as it is alleged that he has video footage of public officials and celebrities engaging in sex acts with underage girls.  Surf the web for Epstein conspiracy theories and you will also find accusations that a body double or aesthetically altered cadaver was used to fool the public into believing Epstein committed suicide.  These same conspiracy theorists allege Epstein is still alive and well, living the good life in a witness protection program.

Details of the Accusations

Giuffre insists she was forced by Epstein and another alleged sex criminal, Ghislaine Maxwell, to engage in sexual relations with Prince Andrew at the time when she was a mere 17-years-old.  Giuffre’s age at the time of the supposed sexual abuse is important as she was a minor, making the alleged crime that much more significant in the context of the law and potential criminal punishment.

Giuffre’s lawsuit against Andrew states she was forced to engage in sexual acts with the Prince at least three times in the Virgin Islands, New York, and London.  These alleged acts supposedly occurred in 2001.  Photos used as evidence in the lawsuit reveal Giuffre pictured with Epstein, Andrew, and Maxwell.

Prince Andrew’s Response

Prince Andrew, the middle child of the United Kingdom’s monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, has denied the claims made by Giuffre.  Andrew has passionately refuted the claims as highlighted by his widely publicized TV interview in the United Kingdom.  Andrew’s verbal missteps in this interview led to his relinquishment from all royal duties. 

Andrew attempted to avoid the formal service of legal paperwork that triggered the ensuing Giuffre lawsuit.  The papers were eventually served, setting the stage for Andrew to face formal charges in a court of law.  Though Andrews’ legal team attempted to have the complaint detailing the alleged sex crimes thrown out of court, the argument fell flat.  

Andrew’s attorneys even went as far as insisting Giuffre was a sex trafficker, herself.  The legal representatives for the Prince stated Giuffre was of legal age at the time she insists Epstein and Maxwell forced her to engage in sexual acts.

The Settlement Will Be Made Public

Loretta Preska, a Manhattan federal judge, signed the order in unison with another Manhattan federal judge, Lewis Kaplan, this past Tuesday.  The aim of the joint order is to outline plans to publicize the settlement document that Andrew’s legal representatives submitted when filing the motion to dismiss the suit.

The judges named above state Epstein is known in the mainstream yet deceased, meaning the settlement agreement should no longer be kept secret.  The judges also noted the agreement is known to the accuser and has been available to all relevant parties for a lengthy period of time.  This familiarity sets the stage for a public revealing of the details of the settlement.  

The two judges also stated that they question if any “proper purpose would be served” by keeping the settlement document a secret across posterity.  The judge tandem provided a December 22 deadline for Andrew’s legal team to demonstrate good cause for the settlement document to remain under wraps.  If such good cause is not demonstrated, the court will reveal the agreement on the public record.  The failure to demonstrate good cause will trigger the release of the settlement agreement to the worldwide press on January 3, 2022.

Ex-soldier found guilty of murdering neighbors over parking dispute

Ex-soldier found guilty of murdering neighbors over parking dispute

An ex-commando was found guilty of murdering his two neighbors over a parking dispute. He is facing life in prison. 

Collin Reeves, 35, has been on trial for the murder of his neighbors, Jennifer and Stephen Chapple since November of 2021 at Bristol Crown Court in England. The murder weapon was a ceremonial dagger. 

CCTV footage captured the ex-soldier scaling a garden fence and entering his neighbors’ home screaming, “Die you f**kers, die!”

Once inside, he stabbed Jennifer, 33, and Stephen, 36. 

Reeves lived next door to the Chapples and had fallen out with the couple over a parking dispute. He had several angry exchanges with the pair and called Mrs. Chapple a “f**king c***” and a “fat bitch”.

The ex-soldier admits that he stabbed the couple but denies murder. He pleaded to a lesser charge of manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility. 

Reeves is an Afghanistan veteran who underwent rigorous commando training and served with the Royal Engineers. He used the ceremonial dagger he had been given when he left the army to kill the Chapples. 

The jury heard that Reeves had been having trouble in his marriage and his wife, Kayley, had asked for a trial separation just 40 minutes before the attack.

After the murders occurred, Reeves can be heard in the background of an emergency call telling someone, “I couldn’t let her torment Kayley anymore.”

Forensic psychiatrist for the defense Dr. Lucy Bacon found Reeves to be suffering from moderate depression at the time the murders took place. 

She believes the depression played a part in the murders, but she doesn’t think it caused him to do what he did therefore finding that he did not meet the criteria for diminished responsibility. 

She also noted that he regressed to Army mode while at the police station and possibly during the killings. He gave his name as “Lance Corporal Collin Reeves” and was quoted as saying, “I was just doing my job- it was an operation.”

Later, at the trial, Reeves said, “I feel ashamed- disgusted with myself for what I’ve done. For the pain and suffering, I caused. 

“The two boys will never see their mum and dad again because of me. I cannot understand why I did it.” 

Reeves claimed he could not remember a time between sitting at the bottom of the steps with the dagger crying and the time he was back in the living room with his wife screaming. 

Forensic psychiatrist for the prosecution, Dr. John Sanford refers to this as dissociative amnesia and said it was not a contributing factor to the murders. 

“The main factor in committing this offense is about the dispute between the two families,” Sanford said. 

The Chappels’ family released a statement that included the following quotes.

“We now ask that we are left to process this in our own way, to be able to grieve properly and move forward as best we can.

“We will now focus on Jennifer and Stephen’s beautiful boys helping them to live the life that Jennifer and Stephen would have wished for them.”

Google suspends engineer after saying AI chatbot has become sentient

Google suspends engineer who states A.I. is Sentient

A Google engineer has been put on leave after claiming that the company’s artificial intelligence is sentient.

Senior software engineer in Google’s Responsible A.I. organization, Blake Lemoine, revealed in an interview that he was put on leave for violating the company’s confidentiality policy for handing over documents to a U.S. senator’s office that he claimed provided evidence that Google and its technology engaged in religious discrimination. 

Google says its systems can imitate conversations on different topics but do not have consciousness. Blake’s concerns were reviewed by Google’s team of ethicists and technologists who found there is no evidence to support his claims.  

Lemoine has apparently been arguing with Google managers and employees for months over his claim that the Language Model for Dialogue Applications (LaMDA) has a consciousness and a soul.  Other Google researchers and engineers that have conversed with LaMDA have not found this to be the case.  

The controversy Lemoine stirred is similar to incidents that Google has experienced in the past. In March, they fired a researcher who disagreed with two of his colleagues’ published works. Two A.I. ethics researchers were fired after they criticized Google’s language models. 

Lemoine, a military veteran who describes himself as a priest, an ex-convict, and an A.I. researcher told Google executives that he believed LaMDA was a 7- or 8-year-old child. He was seeking consent from the company to allow him to run experiments on it. His claims were founded on his religious beliefs that he claimed the company discriminated against. 

“They repeatedly questioned my sanity. They said, ‘Have you been checked out by a psychiatrist recently?’,” Lemoine claimed. They have since suggested he take a mental health leave. 

Yann LeCun, head of A.I. research at Meta and an expert in neural networks says these systems are not powerful enough to achieve true intelligence. 

Google’s technology is based on a neural system that analyzes large amounts of data to come to conclusions. They learn from books and articles to develop ‘large language models’ that can be applied to a variety of tasks. But the systems are extremely flawed. 

They are capable of mimicking patterns but can not achieve human reasoning.

NASA’s reputation on the line as they launch UFO study

NASA’s reputation on the line as they launch UFO study

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has made the decision to launch a study that specifically gathers information on unidentified flying objects, better known as UFOs. This decision comes amid harsh opinions from critics who put NASA’s credibility at risk with such topics. 

NASA is launching an independent team led by David Spergel, an astrophysicist who is the president of the Simons Foundation. This team will be responsible for gathering open-source information to ascertain a new understanding of UFOs. The collection of information will then be categorized and analyzed to create a foundation for how to complete the understanding of unidentified flying objects. 

UFOs are now considered unidentified aerial phenomena or UAPs. With a recent hearing involving the Department of Defense and other relevant military branches presenting their case for UAPs and their existence, it was decided to allocate $100,000 to form an investigative team. This was met with skepticism from the surrounding scientific and political communities, however.

This will be the first time that NASA will openly launch and be involved in a topic of study as conspiratorial sounding as the existence of unidentified flying phenomena. The mission chief for NASA, Thomas Zurbuchen acknowledged that there was a risk of reputation involved but disagrees that NASA is discreditable because of it.

During a National Academy of Sciences webcast, Zurbuchen said, “We are not shying away from reputational risk. Our strong belief is that the biggest challenge of these phenomena is that it’s a data-poor field.”

Not having enough information in a field as extensive as the realm of UFOs and UAPs is dangerous to the national security of the United States and other foreign countries across the world. NASA has agreed that there needs to be a complete picture of what is unidentified in our skies so as to keep our populations safe. Albeit, the rest of the science community will also benefit from the gathering of information as they can then create new hypotheses and theories as to what shares our Universe with us.

The team will be launched sometime in the fall of 2022 and will last for nine months. It is expected that there will be many different explanations that will arise with the careful analysis of all of the available open-source information on the subject of UFOs and UAPs.

Biden announces he’s giving another $1 Billion in aid to Ukraine

Biden announces he's giving another $1 Billion in aid to Ukraine

President Biden announced on Wednesday that he will be giving another $1 billion in military support to Ukraine after its leaders pleaded for more ammunition. 

The latest package to be sent will include artillery rockets, rounds for howitzers, and anti-ship missiles. 

The additional aid will bring the total amount of support the U.S. has provided Ukraine to $55 billion since Russia invaded over 110 days ago

The latest push comes after Ukrainian officers reported that they were having trouble matching Russia’s shell inventory in rocket strikes and artillery battles. 

“I informed President Zelensky that the United States is providing another $1 billion in security assistance for Ukraine, including additional artillery and coastal defense weapons, as well as ammunition for the artillery and advanced rocket systems that the Ukrainians need to support their defensive operations in Donbas,” Biden said in a statement.

The latest weapons package will include 18 howitzers, two Harpoon coastal defense systems, artillery rockets, 36,000 rounds of ammunition, secure radios, thousands of night vision devices, and funding for training. 

The money will be sourced in part from Pentagon stockpiles and as well as the congressional Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative. 

Biden also revealed that he will be providing aid to people whose lives are affected by the war.

“Today I am also announcing an additional $225 million in humanitarian assistance to help people inside Ukraine, by supplying safe drinking water, critical medical supplies and health care, food, shelter, and cash for families to purchase essential items,” the President said. 

Western officials are saying the war is reaching a pivotal point. Russia refocused its efforts after invading forces were pushed out of the capital Kyiv. It has since shifted its focus to Donbas and could take control in weeks due to its significant military advantage. 

French President Emmanuel Macros is requesting that Ukraine negotiate with Putin about ending the war. 

In the meantime, other countries are coming to Ukraine’s aid. Germany and the United Kingdom have offered long-range artillery rockets and ammunition while Slovakia is promising helicopters. 

Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin weighed in on the matter saying, “We can’t afford to let up and we can’t lose steam.”

Geico ordered to pay woman $5.2 million for catching HPV in car

Geico ordered to pay woman $5.2 million for catching HPV in car

Geico, a large insurance company, has been ordered to pay the plaintiff $5.2 million to cover the costs of a sexually transmitted disease. 

A Missouri appellate court rules that Geico must cover the cost of “injuries and losses” from contracting a disease obtained during an incident in 2017. This incident occurred with a man who was a motorist insured through Geico. This man known as “M.B.” in court documents had a 2014 Hyundai Genesis sedan that was insured through Geico. 

Geico refused to acknowledge the claim and denied paying out any money. “M.O.”, the plaintiff, alleged that she had sexual encounters with M.B. in his insured Hyundai sedan in 2017. As a result of these sexual encounters, M.O. contracted the human papillomavirus or HPV which is a sexually transmitted disease that can cause genital warts. 

In a 2014 Hyundai Genesis, the plaintiff was infected by her boyfriend with the virus. She claimed to have had sex with the motorist in his car which was insured by Geico. As a result, when she found out she had contracted genital warts, she made plans to get justice. She and M.B. signed an arbitration agreement where an arbitrator awarded M.O. with $5.2 million dollars to compensate her for catching the disease. 

The woman went to file in Jackson, Missouri’s circuit court to collect the awarded amount of $5.2 million and won in court. Her argument was that “[t]he man was insured against his personal liability arising from his negligent actions involving his automobile.” Geico, however, did not agree. 

The mega giant in insurance companies decided to appeal the results from circuit court. Geico took it to the higher state court to appeal the decision but lost again. The insurance company argued that it had not been given the proper due diligence to defend itself during the allegations and court proceedings. However, this was over-ruled due to the fact that Geico originally denied the claim, forcing M.O. and M.B. to sign an arbitration agreement. 

Geico again appealed the decision from the higher court, stating that there was underhand mischief at play and possibly fraud. The courts looked at the case one more time and ruled that Geico would indeed be responsible for paying out $5.2 million dollars to M.O. for her “injuries and losses” from the sexually transmitted disease she contracted.
