Trump Clears Democrat Smokescreen with Removal of Acosta

By Jonathan F. Keiler
July 13, 2019


Why did Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta resign?

His supposed "offense" was declining to prosecute Jeffrey Epstein in return for the billionaire sex predator's guilty plea in state court (and concomitant jail sentence) when he was U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida. That is hardly an offense or even scandalous. It's a professional decision that prosecutors across the country make every day. You can agree or disagree with it, but it is hardly grounds to lose your next job over.

So what is going on here?

The least likely possibility is that there really was something scandalous about Acosta's decision. That he, or one of his subordinates, got something in return for declining to prosecute Epstein over a decade ago, and so Trump got rid of a bad apple. However, there is absolutely no evidence of this (at least that has been made public) and Acosta's and subordinates' actions are perfectly explainable in the absence of illegal inducements. Even if you accept the worst accusations against Acosta coming from Democrats and the mainstream media, that he and his people knuckled under to Epstein's team of high-powered legal talent, so what? This happens, which is why there aren't more multimillionaires and billionaires in jail. High-powered legal talent makes a difference. Exhibit A -- a guy named Orenthal James Simpson. That Epstein ended up in prison at all a decade ago is pretty good.

Also unlikely is that Trump unloaded Acosta because Trump himself was somehow involved in Epstein's crimes and needed to throw someone to the wolves. Trump admitted to knowing Epstein, calling him a "terrific guy" at one point. And Epstein evidently spent some time at Trump's Mar el Lago resort which Trump confirmed Friday. But Trump also threw Epstein out of the resort when an allegation arose against the fellow billionaire, something backed up by other members of the Florida club, and that Trump announced forcefully to the press from the White House.

Possibly Trump jettisoned Acosta because he looked weak. Trump's loyalty is situational. He admirably stuck by Brett Kavanaugh in part because the stakes were orders of magnitude higher. On the other hand, Trump goes through direct subordinates like Big Macs. It's not that Acosta didn't fire back at his critics, but Trump may have felt the plea deal with Epstein itself made Acosta seem weak -- after all, Trump sees himself as a deal-maker par excellence. The problem here though is that in accepting Acosta's resignation Trump himself looks a bit weak, as if giving into media and Democrat pressure.

So the most likely explanation is that Trump sacrificed Acosta to penetrate the political smokescreen that the Democrats and media created with the entire Acosta brouhaha. The attack on Acosta was designed to divert attention from the actual involvement of Democrat worthies with Epstein, and most notably former President Bill Clinton.

Compared to Acosta and Trump, Clinton's relationship with Epstein was and is extremely suspicious, especially given the ex-president's known sexual predilection (shared with Epstein) for young women, and predatory tactics for getting the same.

Flight logs from Epstein's private Boeing 727, nicknamed the "Lolita Express," show that Clinton used the aircraft at least 26 times between 2001-2003.

Trump said that this entirely Acosta’s idea to quit, that he absolutely had nothing to do with it and did not want him to leave.

Either the author believes Trump is blatantly lying or the author is clueless.

And Trump did not just say that Epstein was a great guy, he said much more than that.

“he is a great guy that is a lot of fun and likes women as much as me, many of them on the young side.”

Joe Biden said: "You cannot go to a 7-11 or Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian Accent". He is the Communists' Democrats' 2020 front-runner.

The prosecutors who reopened the Epstein case will find nothing to tie the sex trafficking of minors to Trump. They will probably find someone in their own office first. Then they will make it go away quietly.
