TSCE #31: Global News Pretends There Aren’t Cults Of Satanic Pedos & Traffickers (Epstein Anyone?)

There are many, many valid reasons to criticize Donald Trump. However, Global(ist) News is being downright disingenuous about there not being any organized pedophile groups.

1. Trafficking, Smuggling, Child Exploitation

Global News, like CTV and CBC, are dependent on the Canadian taxpayers for funding, even though few actually watch them. They will never address serious issues like human smuggling or trafficking, or the connection between open borders, and human smuggling. This media outlet will also never get into the groups or NGOs who are pushing these agendas.

2. Global News Claims Networks Don’t Exist

U.S. President Donald Trump stoked the flames of a wide-ranging, fantastical and unfounded conspiracy theory on Wednesday, acknowledging the QAnon movement, which imagines him as a warrior for God against a global ring of Satan-worshiping pedophile elites.

The FBI has described QAnon as a domestic terror threat, and the Southern Poverty Law Center has also warned that the group is becoming increasingly popular with anti-government extremists. Its followers are also extremely loyal to Trump, whom they see as the mastermind in a secret war against child sex traffickers.

Trump claimed to be ignorant of the group and its beliefs on Wednesday, though he also said he was glad they saw him in a positive light.

“It is this belief that you are secretly saving the world from this Satanic cult of pedophiles and cannibals,” she said. “Does that sound like something that you are behind?”

“Well, I haven’t heard that, but is that supposed to be a bad thing or a good thing?” Trump said.

Global News claims, (or at least one of their authors claims), claims that trafficking and pedo networks are just conspiracy theories, and that Q-Anon is just a group of crazies. Regardless of where the Q movement has gone, it does do some really good work. Read the article for yourself, but it’s clear the author hasn’t done much homework, or even checked out the Global News archives.

3. Global’s Own Archives Show Otherwise

The article’s author, Josh Elliott, implies that it’s nonsense to believe that there are organized groups of pedophiles, and other human rights abusers. However, even a quick look through Global’s archives show that these topics have been covered, many times.

It’s unclear whether this is done to take pot-shots at Trump personally, or to play down the existence of such groups.

Certainly, Trump has failed in many ways, such as: no wall, massive deficits, increased illegal immigration, and lackluster support for free speech. However, this isn’t really the place to go after him.

4. Some Background On Epstein/Maxwell Cases

For some more background on who Epstein and Maxwell were connected to, see Part 23 in the series. Many people with high connections were involved. Yet, Global News seems to believe that these networks are just conspiracy theories.

5. Maxwell Court Documents Ordered Unsealed

III. CONCLUSION
To summarize, we hold as follows:
.
(1) Materials submitted in connection with a motion for summary judgment are subject to a strong presumption of public access.
.
(2) The summary judgment record at issue will be unsealed upon issuance of our mandate, subject to minimal redactions.
.
(3) Materials submitted in connection with, and relevant to, discovery motions, motions in limine, and other non dispositive motions are subject to a lesser—but still substantial— presumption of public access.
.
(4) The District Court is directed to review the remaining sealed materials individually and unseal those materials as appropriate.
.
(5) District courts should exercise the full range of their substantial powers to ensure their files do not become
vehicles for defamation.

For the foregoing reasons, we VACATE the orders of the District Court entered on November 2, 2016, May 3, 2017, and August 27, 2018, ORDER the unsealing of the summary judgment record as described herein, and REMAND the cause to the District Court for particularized review of the remaining materials.

In undertaking this task, the District Court may be well served by ordering the parties to submit to the Court unredacted, electronic copies of the remaining sealed materials, as well as specific, proposed redactions. The District Court may also order the parties to identify and notify additional parties whose privacy interests would likely be implicated by disclosure of these materials.

In the interests of judicial economy, any future appeal in this matter shall be referred to this panel.

The Court ordered (see page 30) that the evidence and pleadings previous blocked from publication should now become unsealed. It was in the public interest to do so.

6. Flight Records Were Entered As Evidence

Now, John Roberts is a common enough name, but could it refer to the sitting Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court?

The records of the Lolita Express start at page 463 in the unsealed documents, and run some hundred pages. Some familiar names include: Bill Clinton, Alan Dershowitz, Kevin Spacey & Chris Tucker, to name just a few. These were actually used as evidence in court proceedings.

7. Pleading Records Were Released Too

Although too long to detail here, the pleadings of Virginia Roberts and Ghislaine Maxwell were both released as well. So this isn’t just wild speculation, but actual allegations and defenses filed with the courts.

Seriously, Global News, if you are going to claim that this is all a figment of Trump’s imagination, you’ll have to put a little more work into it, in order to be convincing.
