JEFFREY Epstein's notorious private jet was staffed by stewardesses who appeared to be underage and dressed in 'sexy nurse' outfits, it's been claimed. Former Miami cop Mike Fisten claims a co-pilot who flew all over the world on the so-called 'Lolita Express' told him the plane also had a bedroom at the back. It's already been reported that Epstein liked young woman to sleep on the bizarre padded floor of the bedroom while he slept in comfort. Fisten told Fox News: "I'll never forget sitting in this guy's (the pilot) living room up in this really nice area of Wellington, Florida, and talking to him "And he's telling me, 'I can't tell you anything. I really want to, but I can't'." Fisten, who was hired by a lawyer acting for one of Epstein's alleged victims, said he then noticed a photo of the pilot with his kids. "I said 'Look at your daughters. They could have been victims. And the guy started tearing up and he started talking," he claimed. It's claimed the airman described the jet's … [Read more...] about Jeffrey Epstein co-pilot reveals paedo had ‘underage’ stewardesses dressed as ‘sexy nurses’ on private jet

Sunday was the first time in 2016 that I was happy to be wrong about an important election. While I had predicted both the UK referendum and the US presidential elections to be close, I had not expected Brexit or Donald Trump to win. I did expect Norbert Hofer to win the re-run of the Austrian presidential elections, however, and was happily surprised at Alexander Van der Bellen’s quite comfortable victory. Whatever the reasons for Hofer’s defeat – his speculation about an Öxit or Nigel Farage’s support of him – the results give us a chance to put the rise of rightwing populism into perspective and, more importantly, to try to change the increasingly self-defeating narrative surrounding it. It’s important first to acknowledge that Hofer achieved the best result of any populist radical right candidate in an established European democracy. His 46.2% of the national vote is significantly above the best electoral result of his own party, the … [Read more...] about Liberalism need not be on the retreat – rightwing populism is beatable
Marine Le Pen, the leader of France’s far-right Front National, was jubilant on Wednesday as she took to the stage at her party’s headquarters to congratulate Donald Trump, saying his victory showed nothing was “set in stone” and the “political and media elite” could be put in its place. Smiling, she hailed “a great movement across the world” in which the UK’s vote to leave the European Union, coupled with Trump’s US election victory, heralded the dawn of a new world order. Mainstream politicians in Paris immediately began warning that the next political earthquake could be what had always been seen as impossible: Le Pen winning the French presidential election in six months’ time. Even before Trump’s win was official, Le Pen’s chief strategist, Florian Philippot, had tweeted: “Their world is collapsing, ours is being built.” Marine Le Pen’s estranged father, the former far-right leader, … [Read more...] about Marine Le Pen says Trump’s victory marks ‘great movement across world’
Another week and another glut of evidence that the Australian economy is flatlining. Growth figures showed that households have stopped spending and that the economy is being propped up by a few government projects. The next day, retail sales growth came in at exactly 0%, showing that consumers have taken the Coalition’s tax cuts and used them to pay off debt. But as Josh Frydenberg rebuffs the Reserve Bank’s calls for huge new federal spending and instead trumpets the possibility of returning Australia Pty Ltd to surplus, it seems increasingly likely the denizens of Martin Place will cut the cash rate again in February to kickstart the economy. This is starting to feel like groundhog day. The RBA has already cut rates three times this year, in line with similar moves in the United States, Europe and Asia, and failed to move the dial on growth. Most economists doubt that it will make any difference even if the cash rate sinks to 0.25%, as many predict. But a radically … [Read more...] about Turning the economic tide: could a radical monetary theory fix Australia’s woes?
