  • Christie blames transition team as Trump cabinet roils

    "It all goes back to the transition and how poorly the transition was run. These people were not vetted appropriately, and the president ended up watching them in action. They were vetted while they were doing the jobs, and they wound up being deficient, many of them." - Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on ABC's This Week after Labor Sec. Alex Acosta became the latest cabinet official to resign in controversy. Axis is reporting that Commerce Sec. Wilbur Ross may be next. The cabinet, White House staff and many agency heads are working in an "acting" capacity. Christie headed the Trump transition team, but was fired the day after the election with most of his work ending up in a Trump Tower dumpster. Vice President Mike Pence then headed the transition, with The Hill reporting that Pence reportedly outsourced political vetting to the Republican National Committee.

  • Epstein, Acosta and the perversion of power
    For those of you wondering why Labor Secretary Alex Acosta resigned Friday despite President Trump's assertion that he is a "great labor secretary," spend 15 minutes to read Miami Herald reporter Julie K. Brown's "Perversion of Justice: How a future Trump Cabinet member gave a serial sex abuser the deal of a lifetime." You'll learn that District Attorney Acosta bowed to the demands of pedophile Jeffrey Epstein's all-star legal team, cut "an extraordinary plea agreement that would conceal the full extent of Epstein’s crimes and the number of people involved." This is about a lurid a tale of crime and power as I've ever read. While this was going on, Epstein's enforcers were tracking down witnesses and journalists, issuing threats.

    Brown writes: "Not only would Epstein serve just 13 months in the county jail, but the deal — called a non-prosecution agreement — essentially shut down an ongoing FBI probe into whether there were more victims and other powerful people who took part in Epstein’s sex crimes." We are learning that Epstein's circles included dozens if not hundreds of underage girls, recruiters, presidents, princes and the rich and famous.

    Florida State Sen. Lauren Book, asks: “Where is the righteous indignation for these women? Where are the protectors? Who is banging down the doors of the secretary of labor, or the judge or the sheriff’s office in Palm Beach County, demanding justice and demanding the right to be heard?"

    Of course President Trump said of Epstein in 2002, “I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side." Wink-wink. That was three years before Trump's infamous Access Hollywood comment (if you're rich and famous, "you can grab them by their pussy") and five years before Acosta's plea deal with Epstein. It begs the question, What would Mother think?  - Brian A. Howey, publisher
