(TMU) Opinion – Artist Maria Farmer is believed to be the first of Epstein’s victims to attempt to report the wealthy pedophile and his friends to police, and now she is working on a series of paintings “all about the elites” and their crimes.
Her most recent painting, “FBI diagram,” depicts a dead Jeffrey Epstein in a flying saucer, with his still-free co-conspirators playing out various scenes in other parts of the painting, including Ghislaine Maxwell as a reptile inside of a giant plastic bubble, with a “property of FBI” tag hanging off of it, likely symbolizing the lack of action from the FBI and other authorities.
The painting also shows Alan Dershowitz without pants on, putting his finger over his mouth to shush the victims.
The depiction of Dershowitz is symbolic of the lengths that he went through to cover up Epstein’s crimes and discredit the victims.
He likely isn’t wearing any pants in the painting because he has been implicated in Epstein’s crimes as well, and has admitted to receiving massages at Epstein’s estate.
He has also been called a “pervert” by his former neighbors and admitted to skinny dipping at Martha’s Vinyard, which resulted in numerous complaints from people in the area that day.
Describing her new painting, Farmer said, “I wanted to do it from a child’s viewpoint. What I’m really doing is saying: FBI, if you can’t follow this, you can’t follow what a child would draw. This is about corruption at a much higher level, and he was just one of the pawns,” Farmer added. The drawing emphasizes “the absurdity of the fact that they let him go for so long.”
According to Farmer, she was assaulted by Epstein and Maxwell at the Ohio estate of Lex Wexner when she was staying there in the summer of 1996 to work on an art project. She then learned that her younger sister had a similar encounter with the pair, and she was underage at the time.
Farmer says that after she made the accusations about Epstein and Maxwell, Maxwell used her connections to destroy her reputation in the New York art scene before it even began.
Farmer says that she became terrified of them, and even moved around several times trying to get away from them.
She was never able to fully pursue her art because she was so worried about staying under the radar, but now with Epstein apparently dead and many of his accomplices laying low, she feels safe to begin to create her art again.
Sadly, in the midst of this new chapter in her life, she was also diagnosed with cancer, which she attributes to the constant stress resulting from the trauma inflicted by Epstein and his friends. She also blames them for taking away the life that she should have lived.
“When I first found out that I have a brain tumor, I saw all the things I didn’t get to do because I’ve been in hiding. When I got the diagnosis, I started seeing a wedding, a baby, a group of friends, all the things I’ve been deprived of. All the paintings, the gallery openings, the things that never happened,” Farmer said.
Lunar New Deal: GOP Lawmaker Suggests Altering Moon & Earth’s Orbit to Stop Climate Change
Texas Republican Congressman Louise Gohmert raised the eyebrows of his Congressional colleagues on Tuesday after seemingly suggesting that climate change could be combatted by changing the orbit of the moon, or even altering “Earth’s orbit around the sun.”
Gohmert, who has been decried as the “dumbest member of Congress” for his past absurdly anti-scientific comments regarding the ongoing pandemic and a number of other issues, has been a vocal opponent of progressive legislators’ attempts to put a “Green New Deal” on the government’s agenda.
However, his apparent suggestion of a “Lunar New Deal” to mitigate global warming could take the cake as his most hare-brained idea yet.
The comments came during a House Natural Resources Committee hearing on four pending bills while questioning Jennifer Eberlien of the Department of Agriculture’s Forest Service, reports NBC.
“I understand, from what’s been testified to the Forest Service and the B.L.M. [Bureau of Land Management], you want very much to work on the issue of climate change,” the Texas congressman began.
“I was informed by the immediate past director of NASA that they’ve found that the moon’s orbit is changing slightly and so is the Earth’s orbit around the sun,” he continued.
“We know there’s been significant solar flare activity,” Gohmert said. “And so, is there anything that the National Forest Service or B.L.M. can do to change the course of the moon’s orbit or the Earth’s orbit around the sun?”
“Obviously that would have profound effects on our climate,” the lawmaker added.
Responding, Eberlein said with a smile: “I would have to follow up with on you on that one, Mr. Gohmert.”
“If you figure out there’s a way in the forest service you could make that change, I’d like to know,” Gohmert responded, without any trace of irony.
Longtime critics of the conservative legislator were besides themselves with bewilderment and mockery over the out-of-this-world suggestion.
On the opposite side of the aisle California Democratic Congressman Ted Lieu suggested that perhaps Marvel Comics superheroine Captain Marvel was up to the task.
“She can alter planetary orbits with her superpowers. I’m going to work on a bipartisan resolution asking for her help,” Lieu wrote on Twitter.
According to NASA, the Earth’s climate has changed throughout history for various reasons, including small variations in the planet’s orbit.
However, the agency’s website notes that this doesn’t discount the fact that anthropogenic or human-caused activities are the culprit of the current warming.
“The current warming trend is of particular significance because most of it is extremely likely (greater than 95 percent probability) to be the result of human activity since the mid-20th century and proceeding at a rate that is unprecedented over millennia,” the site says.
Man Finds Out His Grandparents’ Home Once Belonged To Girlfriend Of Serial Killer Ted Bundy
A user of Reddit has seemingly Adiscovered that his grandparents live in the same home where infamous serial killer Ted Bundy once lived.
In a post to the social platform, a photo of the user’s grandparents’ fireplace can be seen along with a picture displayed on a phone that shows a couple appearing to be posing in the same living room. The post reads: “Ted Bundy dated someone who used to live in my grandparents’ house.”
The well-known photo shows Ted Bundy embracing Elizabeth Kloepfer, who dated Bundy during his brutal killing spree that claimed about 30 lives between 1974 and 1978.
Klopfer later reported her boyfriend to the police after recognizing his face in a composite sketch. However, the police failed to apprehend him at the time due to the large influx of tips regarding possible suspects of the serial murders.
She later reported Bundy again after realizing that women were disappearing near Salt Lake City, Utah – not far from where the couple lived, and quite possibly where the home on Reddit is located.
However, this attempt also failed after a witness couldn’t identify the serial murderer in a line-up.
Bundy later allegedly scorched the head of one of his victims in the fireplace presumably pictured in the Reddit post before ditching the body in a mountain.
Bundy told then-detective Robert Keppel: “Of all the things I did to [Kloepfer], this is probably the one she is least likely to forgive me for. Poor Liz.”
Bundy was given the death penalty for his crimes and was finally executed on Jan. 24, 1989.
Redditors were convinced that the fireplace shown in the post was the same one that belonged to Kloepfer.
“That’s not ‘someone,’” one user wrote. “That’s THE one. He dated Liz for a majority of his active years.”
Another user added: “Right. And wasn’t he with Liz when he said he’d burned some body parts of a victim in a fireplace? Could this be THE fireplace?”
The original poster eventually returned to the thread to explain that they learned that the home did, indeed, once return to Kloepfer.
“The house was built for a doctor and his family who turned out to be Liz,” the poster wrote. “Liz dated Teddy for a good part of his active years and they broke up when he got arrested and had to leave the state I believe.”
“My family bought the house a few years ago with zero relation to ‘ol Teddy,” they added. “Just crazy coincidence!”
New York Times Publishes, Then Pulls, Strange Article About ‘Fields of Watermelons on Mars’
The New York Times has long been known as the “Grey Lady of Journalism,” reflecting the newspaper’s institutional identity as a credible and respectable source of daily news.
However, on Tuesday an extremely bizarre claim graced the pages of the “paper of record”: that fields of watermelons had been discovered on Mars, a discovery made by police.
The story, which appeared as a stub, was pulled within an hour of publication. However, an archived snapshot of the “scoop” still remains.
“Authorities say rise of fruit aliens is to blame for glut of outer space watermelons,” read the story, according to a cached copy from Google News. “The FBI declined to comment on reports of watermelons raining down, but confirmed that kiwis have been intercepted.”
“This story is terribly boring,” it read.
The article has been replaced with a message noting that the story had been “published in error.”
The fact that the publication was likely the result of either a prank or human error is clear based on the byline, which attributes the story to a “Joe Schmoe.”
According to Futurism, the newspaper hasn’t yet addressed the strange incident. However, the website speculates that it may well have been an erroneous publication of a some test of the company’s backend content management system.
It goes without saying that while NASA missions and a Chinese rover are scouring Mars for native life, no large melons or kiwis have been discovered on the Red Planet.
