    Thought I would give you guys another chance…………. bad idea. Everything is overhyped and everything is anti Trump. I am surprised you haven't blamed the earthquakes on Trump. No wonder you are going under. Truly pathetic.

    How wouldn't the Trump WH be chaotic if the UK itself was spying and colluding thru IM6 and Steele!. Stupid traidors. You should be deported from US as Obama deported the Russian diplomat. You, May and jihadhist mayor Saqqid are not friends of America. Get out! THUG

    EPSTEIN AND TRUMP THE NEW FACES OF AMERICAS CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES!! USED TO BE THE BUSH CRIME FAMILY AND THE CLINTONS!!!!

    What company has under age girls that give massages.. Or did their parents know..who put these girls in his hands..who,what,when,why.. He is not the only one.. The elite are casting him out for a reason because they all have a sick history..

    Epstein is Mossad, used girls to blackmail people of wealth or power or influence. Jewish, Zionist power grab.

    Simple fix…cruise lines have passengers wear a beacon bracelet…same principle as snow mountain skiers who after getting stuck in snow…Getting stuck in deep sea ocean is comparable to being trapped in an avalanche…the find will be made easier by far. Passengers can purchase, rent or make a refundable deposit to get one distributed by the cruise line. One day people will have such a technology embedded under the skin for general identification and tracking for differnt personal a well as judicial and contractual reasons. If that big shipping company can't afford the beacon…stay off ships. Mo ship for me anyway. My ancestors did all the "cruising" in hauls of ships…no thank you they tell me to say.

    After his court date, Jeffrey left for home. He had something pressing, waiting for him…. Jeffrey ain't going to jail, he'll get a "Git Outa Jail Card", from a DemonRAT, just you wait & see…. Wow, look at that flood.. Hopefully some bad leaders, will get washed out to sea….as the land is being rinsed real well….

    Welcome to reality ,he is not alone,many will follow,this great nation is polluted with these glibalist billionaires,many decades of corruption in stealth,is about time

    A tragic accident? I would say it was tragic but not an accident. Why would the grandfather hold a child outside the window?! Does he usually dangle children from 10 story buildings? I'm sure he didn't mean to but dude needs to be arrested and charged. As far as cruise ship safety, I would say 200 deaths over 10 years does not constitute an emergency. You can't force dumb people to be smart. Sorry.

    I really don't understand how people can be stupid enough to fall for the phone scams. What reputable company, much less the government, is going to make threats via phone unless you go immediately while they are on the phone with you and transfer all your money on to gift cards?! I just don't understand how someone could be so gullible….

    According to court documents the …”raid” had to commence after the appellate court ruled the documents to be unsealed…

    Trump hung out with him and Bill Clinton….cheated on three wives…hung out at young girls beauty pageants…attracted to his own daughter…I can't imagine Trump being a pervert HAHAHAHAHAHAAH

    I've gotten 2 of those scam calls. Reported the first–nothing happened. Never bothered with the second. I just don't pick up on calls I don't recognize.

    Oh my God, when will people learn to JUST HANG UP THE PHONE!!!! THE IRS, SSN, DOESN'T CALL YOUUUUUU!!!!!

    Wow those women look like any average middle class women. I think the rich do it gently and with care. I could have never guessed that those women were used like prostitutes because they, titty dancers and hookers usually look worn out and tired by the time they're 30.

    WONDER IF THE BEAST WILL NAME OUR WORKSHY BIG PUBLIC MONEY SPENDER PRINCE ANDREW AS A CUSTOMER SOME PEOPLE SAY HE WAS USING THE GIRLS I HOPE HE IS CHARGED IN THE USA THAT WILL FINISH THE MOST HATED OF THE SCROUNGING ROYAL FAMILY NAZIS THAT CAN BE SEEN ON UTUBE GETTING READY FOR 4 THE GERMANS TAKING THE UK.

    How to prepare for the next earthquake emergency? Don't live on a major fault line. Especially where huge destructive earthquakes have happened before

    Jeffery! You can’t hide behind yo dirty money now! Huh? And take the rest of them demons down with you! But you don’t have to it’s already coming out all y’all going down 👎🏿 👹👺👿😈💩

    The dumb "Top" story? A billionaire who paid his debt to society 10 yrs ago is now being charged for the exact same crimes in NY! The Constitution forbids "double jeopardy" crimes yet all these sanctimonious creepy women now come out again untouchable! This is not "justice" like that NY DA claims. He only wants another conviction on his depraved resume.

    1:30 Young looking women??? Why don't you FAKE NEWS P'sOS use the word CHILDREN! Can't wait till some of you in the media are implicated for what you have done in the shadows, when the cameras are off.

    Epstein, you cockroach, who did you angered. You know the rules, when you ENTER — do not even think of an EXIT strategy.
    IS THIS THE END OF YOUR FREE REIGN — AS IT PERTAINS TO PREDATORY BEHAVIOR AGAINST CHILDREN???

    I hope that cop that dropped his 1 yr old baby off the Cruise ship gets a manslaughter charge against him for negligence.

    😂😂😂😂14 years old poor young girls massage at billionaire old guy where are the parents ???😂😂😂😂 just cut check to the persecute jeftry 😎😎😎

    If the Federal reserve
    lowers interests rates it will risk another Great Depression and risk losing
    their credibility to serve as a neutral body capable of keeping the United
    States economy on solid footing.  The
    stock market is overvalued. In the late 1920s, the Fed was reluctant to raise
    interest rates in response to soaring share prices, leaving rampant bank
    lending pushing  prices higher. When the
    Fed did belatedly act, the bubble burst. 
    12 years of Republican presidents 
    preceded the great depression of 1929. 
    They cut taxes  mostly for the
    wealthy and persuaded the federal reserve put in place artificially low
    interest rates set by old line Republican beholding to their corporate friends.
    This fueled speculative schemes  and an
    overvalued stock market.  In 1928
    Republican president Hoover claimed the economy was great but then as now, it
    was based on inflated stock prices.  
    America's savings disappeared with the stock market crash. The wealth of
    the world was then and is now concentrated in the hands of a small class at the
    top. When the stock inflated bubble bursts, the great bulk of the population
    will again be no longer be able to purchase the increasing supply of
    goods.  With less demand, production will
    be diminished, jobs will be lost leading to more unemployment and depression.   The
    Federal Reserve must not lower interest rates inflating stock prices even more,
     pumping prices up with easy money.  The greater the stock bubble,  the greater the crash and depression.  The Federal Reserve must not be seen as incompetent
    and incapable of not caving in to political pressure if it is to survive.

    NBC, please include names of implicated Epstein associates that were prominent in government then in previous administrations.

    Trying to connect Trump To Epstein, but the fact is Bill Clinton was screwing those girls Everytime he took one of those flights…FACT!!… Their are secret service agents that know, and have known for years about it..Trump actually banned him from all of his clubs once he was told about Epstein trying to hook up with underage girls there..That was over 13 years ago….Trump has had nothing to do with him since..Fact!!

    How long will you forget me, O LORD? forever? how long will you hide your face from me? Seek God and he will answer.

    that is not very good diplomat hu speaks like this and not suggesting specific resolve basically only stating negative statements if the second british person can't not notice what is wrong with the first person statement they both get to be fired. what Az it mean he has to say that not in a way he said that what is he suggesting michelle obama?
    traitors and meddlers
    see it i snot russia is these british boys 2 smart for their own guD win

    Falling out when he stopped inviting Trump to his fantasy play island. Trump spoke of Epstein liking young girls, thus broke the fantasy play rules.

    If Joe Citizen did the same thing as Mr Epstein that individual would be locked in the deepest, darkest dungeon in the United States. The same thing needs to happen to Epstein.

    Oh please Epstein won't see any time Behind Bars people with that kind of money don't get any jail time if they do it is so minimal it's ridiculous. People with money get away with murder!

    Is everybody ready for the Rapture? Jesus is coming soon! We are truly living in the End Times. It's good to be ready for an earthquake but that pales in comparison in terms of priority. We need to be prepared in our hearts to be ready for the Rapture. Google the Rapture if you are unfamiliar with the event!

    I make about $40,000 a year as a truck driver.
    Not $400,000. Not $4,000,000. Not $40,000,000. Not $400,000,000. Not $4,000,000,000.
    A billionaire is now in jail. What a crash.

    News flash people they know about this guy they are all the same. He got kicked out the Club. MJ, Weinstein. What they cover up is these girls were alot younger than they say 8,9,10 years old there monsters 👹

    Abuse and sales of children and women has gone on the entire history of the known world… I bet if we started chopping body parts off it would slow it down a notch

    trump quote "Epstein a “terrific guy” who "likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side."
