Jeffrey Epstein Private Island

(TMU) — Recently, while island hopping in the Caribbean, independent journalist Luke Rudkowski went where no independent journalist has gone before.

With Jeff Berwick of the Dollar Vigilante by his side, Rudkowski risked arrest—or even death—to show us an exclusive look at Jeffery Epstein’s private island—a seemingly innocuous outpost that many have referred to as “Pedophile Island.”

The pair was with friends when they found themselves near Epstein’s mysterious island of Little St. James, just off the coast of Saint Thomas, part of the U.S. Virgin Islands, an unincorporated territory of the U.S. And so the pair did what any curious and responsible journalists would do—they hired a boat and headed straight for Pedo Island.

“The mainstream media dropped the ball, stopped reporting on Epstein, and no one ever went to his island. This story is incredibly important and has huge implications. There are so many people involved and who knows how many victims. We were so close to the island so we had to at least try to go. It would be crazy not to,” Rudkowski told the Mind Unleashed. 

Convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein purchased the island the 71.5-acre island back in 1998 for $7.95 million and it has been shrouded in mystery ever since, with rumors swirling of what exactly happened there and who took part in the scandalous and illegal activities. Since Epstein took ownership of the small island, few images of it ever emerged. That is until Epstein was arrested earlier this year.

Shortly after his arrest, a YouTube account appeared providing extensive footage of the island from both drone and boat. Despite Epstein’s arrest, Little St. James appeared to be continuing on as usual with general upkeep and even construction occurring in various areas of the island.

Finally, in August, the authorities appeared to focus their attention on Epstein’s outpost in the Virgin Islands when they initiated a raid. Though the raid was indeed warranted, it left many wondering what took so long and what evidence may have been lost in the time it took for authorities to finally act.

In Rudkowski’s video posted to We Are Change’s YouTube channel, Berwick rightfully points out that the only information, save for the drone videos mentioned above, the average citizen has about the island are from government or mainstream media sources, two sources that are difficult to trust on numerous topics, but especially this one. Berwick explained the motivation for their visit:

“Well I guess we have to go and check this out, and see if it’s even real. For all we know, there might not be anything there. There’s always lies, what they tell us. And for all we know, there still could be some activity going on there.”

The plan sounds simple enough—take a short boat ride to a nearby island, take quick peek around, then go home. But from the get go the pair’s idea was rife with complications. “It wasn’t easy. Most captains said they wouldn’t take us to the island,” Berwick explained. In a strange turn of events, the captain they set out with, who previously refused to approach the island, pulled up to the doc on Little St. James while saying “you’ve got five seconds.” So the duo ran for it. This explains why Berwick can be seen shoeless, clad in only swimming trunks, in the footage.

Berwick described the experience of verifying various locations and monuments on the island as “pretty surreal.” Rudkowski described it as both “daunting” and “scary.”

Back on Saint Thomas, the pair later confirmed reports that the locals were well aware of the activities taking place on nearby Little St. James. Berwick explained:

“Talking to the locals, people that have lived here for twenty years, they’re like ‘Oh everyone knew, you’d just see the 12, 13 year old girls waiting on the doc, they’d come get picked up, go to Epstein island.’ So, it was incredibly out in the open. And people like Bill Clinton came here fifty times.”

Berwick added how incredibly “brazen” the entire operation was, with former presidents, heads of state, billionaires and others coming and going.

As one might expect, the duo didn’t find any damning evidence. Between the long time the island sat with employees mulling around after Epstein’s arrest and the FBI raid, no stone was left unturned. As Berwick confirmed, “the offices were cleaned out.”

The blue and white striped temple has long been the primary curiosity of the island with some saying this is where abuses or sacrifices were carried out. Thanks to the YouTube drone footage that has emerged in recent months, those who have followed this story in detail, or those newly curious, were able to observe that the wooden door appeared painted on, the inside contained basic shelving and mattresses, and the entire building appeared to be of somewhat shoddy construction, with the dome having blown off years ago in a storm.

After seeing the temple firsthand, Berwick described it as cheap after confirming that the door was in fact painted on the front. “I could have built that myself,” Berwick told Rudkowski. “It almost looked like a Hollywood set. Actually, that’s exactly what it looked like.” 

As Rudkowski explained, the pair eventually received a phone call from their friend, Joby Weeks, waiting aboard the boat that dropped them off. Weeks told Rudkowski, “There’s a lot of people. There’s people running all over, we just heard screaming. Are you okay? There’s people going around in golf carts. Get out! Get out!”

This truly is a video you have to see for yourself to believe:

While the mainstream media has unsurprisingly let this story die along with Epstein’s apparent suicide, Rudkowski highlights just how little we know and how we cannot give up in the quest for truth and justice. This is still an open case. This is still a case that has a lot of serious implications,” Rudkowski said.

He concluded:

“The Jeffrey Epstein story is an incredibly important story to really understand what’s happening behind the scenes. There is still a huge layer that we don’t know, this is why we took the risk that we’re doing. We’re doing this risk because we want this information out there to expose the bigger lies that the mainstream media is not covering.”

Landlord Accused Of Kidnapping Tenants to Evict, Dumping Them in Cemetery

Shockingly a New York landlord has been accused of kidnapping two tenants to evict them.

Shawn Douglas is accused of kidnapping two of his tenants from his property and dumping them in a cemetery 30 miles away, ABC News 10 reported.

The two tenants accused Douglas of kidnapping them while armed from their home at his property in the South End neighborhood of Albany, NY. Douglas is out on bail following the disturbing case.

In the police report, the two accusers state they were abducted, restrained with zip ties, and then covered with pillowcases before being dumped off in a cemetery in Ghent.

One of the victims was eventually able to free themselves from the restraints to seek help at a nearby house where they called the authorities on Douglas.

“He’s lucky they came out of that alive. They could have froze to death out there,” Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple told NBC News 10.

New York, has had an existing ban on evictions which expires on May 1st due to the current pandemic. Following the lifting of the ban on evictions, many court cases are expected to attempt to evict tenants across the state.

The Albany Police Department has not released any additional details about the case at this time. But more people could be charged in connection with the alleged kidnapping according to ABC News 10.

FBI ‘Aware Of’ Alleged Spotting of UFO by American Airlines Pilot Over New Mexico

Elias Marat

Published

New Mexico has long been considered the mecca for people interested in UFO incidents, with the southwestern state attracting tens of thousands of annual visitors to the alleged sites of close encounters in Roswell, as well as other sightings such as the Lonnie Zamora incident and the Aztec UFO crash.  

With such a rich history of alleged sightings of unidentified flying objects in New Mexico, it should come as no surprise that another close encounter has been reported – this time by a commercial airline pilot on Sunday afternoon.

At around 1 p.m. local time on Sunday, an unidentified aerial craft reportedly whooshed past American Airlines flight 2292 in the northern part of the state, startling the pilot who expressed his shock over the strange object flying overhead at a breathtaking rate of speed.

In a 15-second recording that was obtained by self-described “stealth chaser” Steve Douglass of Amarillo, Texas, and published on his blog Deep Black Horizon, the pilot can be heard excitedly communicating with air traffic controllers about the strange sighting he saw above the clouds during the passenger flight.

“Do you have any targets up here?” the pilot asks the Federal Aviation Administration traffic controllers.

“We just had something go right over the top of us,” he continues. “I hate to say this, but it looked like a long, cylindrical object that almost looked like a cruise missile type of thing moving really fast, and went right over the top of us.”

However, the response from Albuquerque Air Route Traffic Control Center can’t be heard due to local air traffic in Amarillo interfering with the channel, Douglass said. The blogger and author of “The Comprehensive Guide to Military Monitoring” also noted that there was no “no significant military aircraft presence was noted on ADS-B logs” and that the flight proceeded to land without incident at its destination in Phoenix, Arizona.

While the FAA has yet to comment on the strange encounter, American Airlines has confirmed that the recording of the radio communications with the pilot is fully authentic.

“Following a debrief with our Flight Crew and additional information received, we can confirm this radio transmission was from American Airlines Flight 2292 on Feb. 21,” a spokesman for the airliner wrote in an email to Fox News. The spokesman added that any additional inquiries should be addressed to the FBI.

However, the FBI response was equally opaque.

“The FBI is aware of the reported incident,” bureau spokesman Frank Connor wrote in an email. “While our policy is to neither confirm nor deny investigations, the FBI works continuously with our federal, state, local and tribal partners to share intelligence and protect the public.”

Furthermore, authorities at the nearby Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque reported that they had been alerted to the supposed encounter through the media, but officials at the base were not discussing the matter.

“We have no knowledge of this. We’re not aware of anything,” Lally Laksbergs told Wall Street Journal. Officials at White Sands Missile Range in southern New Mexico have not yet responded to media inquiries.

However, Douglass has expressed doubt that the close encounter was with a military projectile.

“It was a Sunday. Basically, it’s a military’s day off,” Douglass told KVII News, where he works as a photographer. “When tests occur, the military notifies the FAA, aircraft are kept out of the area and their schedules and strict flight lanes as aircraft need to stay in to not interfere with these tests. That’s not what happened.”

“Whatever it was came fast, right at them and right over them, which gave them a big enough scare that they had to report it,” he added. “If the military can’t explain what it is, what’s flying out there that we don’t know about?”

In recent years, officials with the U.S. government have been increasingly vocal in its discussions of UFOs, which they prefer to refer to as unidentified aerial phenomena or UAPs.

In September 2019, U.S. Navy officials admitted that widely-circulating video footage captured by Navy pilots purportedly showing UFOs flying through the skies did, in fact, depict actual “unknown” objects that flew into U.S. airspace. The videos had been released months prior by To The Stars Academy of Arts & Sciences (TTS), a private “UFO research organization” founded by former Blink 182 frontman Tom De Longe.

Akon Finally Breaks Ground On His Futuristic $10 Billion Solar Powered “Crypto City”

The rapper, entrepreneur, and philanthropist Akon has been making significant progress on his development plans in Africa, which involve the creation of a futuristic city that runs on clean energy and cryptocurrency.

In January of last year, Akon revealed that his agreements with Senegal President Macky Sall were going forward, and a few months later it was announced that the engineering and consulting firm KE International was awarded a $6 billion contract to build the city. The company previously said it had already received $4 billion from investors for the first two phases of Akon City’s construction, giving the project a price tag of at least $10 billion. 

The project goes much further than just this one city and it has already begun to make an impact across the continent. In the short time since the deal was finalized last year, a large number of solar street lights, and solar home lighting units, have been installed across 14 African countries, according to Akon Lighting Africa.

The effort was made possible by a private-public partnership model and a well-established network of partners including SOLEKTRA INT, SUMEC, and NARI.

Phase 1 of construction on the city is expected to be completed in 2023, and will include roads, a hospital, residences, hotels, a police station, a waste facility, a school, and a solar power plant. The entire city is expected to be finished around 2029. The city’s economy will be facilitated by Akon’s cryptocurrency “Akoin,” which runs on the Stellar blockchain. Stellar is a crypto ecosystem that includes its own cryptocurrency XLM, and also allows for the development of other projects, such as decentralized exchanges and additional currencies like Akoin. Banks around the world have also been considering using the Stellar blockchain for stablecoin deployment. 

Akon believes that cryptocurrency is the solution to the corruption problems that create widespread inequality in Africa because the blockchain provides a record that would make corruption extremely obvious if it were to take place. With an independent cryptocurrency, governments are unable to print money and devalue the currency, and the control of the money is decentralized.

In an interview with TMZ last year, Akon compared the vision that he has for the city with the fictional “Wakanda” from the movie Black Panther.

“This movie literally made an idea of what Africa could really be. It’s just ironic that I was already working on this before the movie came out, but it’s something that helped me a lot when I was trying to explain to explain to people what I was trying to do,” Akon said.

The city’s crypto-economic system will also solve many problems specific to the developing world, like instantly calculating conversation rates for currencies, which is often an obstacle because there are so many different regional currencies and methods of trade. In some cases, people even use prepaid cellphone minutes as a currency because it is easier to use and exchange than traditional currencies. Akon says that the Akoin wallet will allow users to trade between cryptocurrencies, fiat currencies, and cellphone minutes instantly without having to go through a major exchange using Atomic Swap technology. The app will also teach users to become more familiar with the technology in general.
