Epstein update: Queen strips Prince Andrew of military titles and patronages; What about Bill?
Prince Andrew, who is knee deep in a Jeffrey Epstein-related legal battle over allegations that he sexually abused a teenager in the early 2000s, has been stripped of his military affiliations and patronages, according to an official communique from Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen on Thursday moved to distance Buckingham Palace from Andrew. The queen’s second son also agreed not to use the title “His Royal Highness” in any capacity, a palace official said. If British royalty has been ensnared by the Epstein pedophile network, what about former U.S. President Bill Clinton? Media reports say Andrew’s roles will be reassigned to other members of the Royal family. The Duke of York, who turns 62 next month, is ninth in the line of succession to the British throne.
Report: Ashli Babbitt’s killer was not even interviewed; He told NBC, ‘I was cleared by the DOJ . . . ‘
The U.S. Capitol Police lieutenant who shot and killed Ashli Babbitt on Jan. 6, 2021 was cleared of criminal wrongdoing without even being subjected to an interview by investigators, a report said. Lt. Michael Byrd “didn’t provide any statement to [criminal] investigators and they didn’t push him to make a statement,” Babbitt family attorney Terry Roberts said in an interview with RealClearInvestigations (RCI). “It’s astonishing how skimpy his investigative file is.” RCI’s Paul Sperry noted that a D.C. MPD spokeswoman confirmed that Byrd did not cooperate with internal affairs agents or FBI agents who jointly investigated the killing of Babbitt, who was unarmed. “MPD did not formally interview Lt. Byrd,” deputy D.C. MPD communications director Kristen Metzger said. And, “He didn’t give a statement while under the U.S. Attorney’s Office investigation.” Yet, in a friendly interview with NBC News personality Lester Holt, Byrd claimed: “There’s an investigative process [and] I was cleared by the DOJ [Department of Justice], and FBI and [the D.C.] Metropolitan Police,” adding that the Capitol Police also cleared him of wrongdoing and decided not to discipline or demote him for the deadly shooting. Byrd was cleared in April of criminal wrongdoing by the DOJ, which “declined to impanel a grand jury to hear evidence in a departure from other lethal police-shooting cases involving unarmed citizens,” Sperry noted. Texas Republican Rep. Troy Nehls, a former sheriff, said Babbitt’s shooting should have been presented to a federal grand jury. Byrd remains the commander in charge of security for the House of Representatives.
More madness from Australia
A cafe owner in Hervey Bay, Queensland said that a woman who had come in for a cup of coffee was arrested after refusing to reveal her medical records when asked by the Covid gestapo for her vaccination papers. The cafe owner noted in a social media post:“This Lady peacefully left the cafe when the police entered and waited outside. It wasn’t until the police finished checking all patrons that all 5 focused on her and insisted she show her vaccination status. She politely said she would provide her name and address but declines sharing her medical records. They pushed and pushed to try get her to hand over her phone and when she refused, they said she is under arrest. We asked for what? There is nothing in the mandate that says you can be arrested for not showing, but says you can be made to leave a venue. Which she did on her own accord. They said she is obstructing justice.” “Just wanting to sit down and enjoy a cup like a normal human being and was arrested, bruised, put in a holding cell for 2 hours, finger printed, given a $1,300 fine, a court date and treated like a criminal. For having a cup of coffee and for whatever reason, not wanting to show her PRIVATE medical information.”
