The child sex slave of Epstein says she was told to allow Prince Andrew to abuse her sexually

Virginia Roberts argues that Jeffrey Epstein’s’ child sex slave’ has been compelled to allow Prince Andrew to abuse her sexually.

Roberts claims to have been forced to have sex with Epstein and his elite colleagues in an interview with NBC.

Roberts, who now goes by Giuffre’s last name, claims she had to do at least three sexual acts with Prince Andrew.

Reports from Thesun.co.uk: She was standing outside a Manhattan court last month and delivering a message to Prince Andrew.

She said: “He understands what he did precisely. And I hope he’s clean about it. “The royal denied any wrongdoing, saying he” witnessed or suspected any behavior of the kind that led to his arrest and conviction “at no stage.

A earlier declaration from Buckingham Palace said: “The Duke of York was shocked by the latest reports of supposed offenses committed by Jeffrey Epstein.

“His Royal Highness deplores the exploitation of any human being and the suggestion that he would tolerate, engage in or promote such behavior is abhorrent.” Roberts ‘ claims were hit by a judge who labeled them as “immaterial.”

Roberts disclosed in the preview of the show that she was in “mourning” after finding out that last month the paedo had murdered himself in jail.

“That was a shock for me. I mean, I don’t have the words when I say,’ shock,” Roberts said.

“Not because the world lost a monster, I was in mourning.

“I didn’t mourn him. I didn’t mourn this man’s death. “I mourned the death of my capacity to hold this guy accountable.” Epstein, 66, was discovered dead on August 10 in his New York prison cell, where he was charged with sex trafficking and conspiracy.

It is also anticipated that Roberts will accuse the supposed’ madam’ of Epstein, British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, of playing a “key part” in the worldwide ring of sex trafficking.

She will appear with fellow’ victims’ Anouska De Georgiou and Rachel Benavidez in the interview–both of whom are coming forward for the first moment.

Ex-Playboy model and actress de Georgiou, initially from the United Kingdom, said when she was young she was drawn in by Epstein.

She earlier informed a hearing in New York how Epstein “manipulated, corrupted, and sexually attacked” her in “several years of violence.”

The show will also feature accusers Jennifer Araoz, Marijke Chartouni and Chauntae Davies.

They were part of a group of nearly two dozen accusers from Epstein who shared their abuse tales during an August 27 hearing.

They are supposed to say in the episode that they think they have failed the justice system.

This is partly due to Epstein’s wrist-slap plea agreement in Florida in 2008 that allowed him to avoid federal charges — and continue to prey on victims.

Palm Beach Chief of Police Michael Reiter, who oversaw Epstein’s initial local inquiry, said he was unable to clarify how the scheme failed on so many levels.

“No explanation exists. Back then, I didn’t think it, I don’t believe it now, “said Reiter. “It’s incomprehensible to me.”

Hochul vows to fight lawsuit over vaccine mandate

Hochul vows to fight lawsuit over vaccine mandate

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York Gov. Kathy Hochul vowed this week to fight a lawsuit launched by a group of Christian health care practitioners who argue that New York’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for many health care workers is unconstitutional because it lacks a religious exemption.

On Tuesday, a federal judge temporarily blocked the state from enforcing any part of its mandate that prohibits religious exemptions for health care workers. The court will hold arguments in the coming weeks. The judge’s order means health care workers must still get vaccinated before September 27—but for now, they can ask for religious exemptions.

Hochul said Wednesday she’s not aware of any major religious group that has prohibited adherents from receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. “Everyone from the Pope on down is encouraging people to get vaccinated,” she said, referring to Pope Francis, the head of the Roman Catholic Church.

The nurses, doctors, and other New York health care workers in the lawsuit say they don’t want to be forced to take any vaccine that employs aborted fetus cell lines in their testing, development, or production. Fetal cell lines were used during the research and development of the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines and during the production of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

New York is now averaging around 5,200 new cases of COVID-19 per day, up from a low of around 300 per day in late June.

Thomas More Society senior counsel Stephen Crampton, who’s representing the anonymous group of nurses, doctors, and other health care workers, said he’s confident the courts will find that people have a right to refuse the vaccine on religious grounds, even if they are part of a religious group that is endorsing the shots.

“My sincere religious convictions may not be 100% the same as the leader of my church or my denomination,” Crampton said. “And the law respects that and it should.”

New York has a long history of requiring health care workers to be immunized against diseases that pose a major public health threat, including measles, mumps, and rubella. Schoolchildren are required to be vaccinated against many diseases, too.

The state doesn’t offer religious exemptions for vaccination requirements for schoolchildren or health care workers and has argued it isn’t obligated to do so for the COVID-19 vaccine, either. Courts have agreed states don’t have to offer a religious exemption for childhood immunization.

Students at colleges and universities, however, can be exempt from New York’s vaccine mandates if they hold “genuine and sincere religious beliefs which are contrary to the practices herein required.” New York also has a religious exemption for a requirement to vaccinate infants born to a mother with Hepatitis B.

The use of human cell lines is commonplace in the manufacture of vaccines including rubella, chickenpox, shingles, and Hepatitis A. For decades, researchers have multiplied cells from a handful of legally aborted fetuses from the 1960s to produce human cell lines that provide cell cultures used to grow vaccines. Those cell lines are also used to make drugs treating rheumatoid arthritis and cystic fibrosis.

Religious leaders have disagreed over the issue: the Vatican issued guidance saying it’s morally acceptable to receive COVID-19 vaccines developed or tested using cell lines originating from aborted fetuses when alternative vaccines aren’t available.

On Sunday, a federal judge in New York City rejected a similar lawsuit lodged by Long Island nurses who argued the lack of a religious exemption violated their constitutional rights.

When asked whether the health care practitioners have received other vaccines, Crampton said the group isn’t “anti-vax” in general. Hochul, a Democrat, said getting vaccinated is the “most beautiful way” for individuals in healing professions to demonstrate their passion and concern for others.

Seven other states besides New York don’t offer a religious exemption for school and childcare immunization requirements, according to the Immunization Action Coalition. Some have removed exemptions in recent years over concern about outbreaks of once-contained diseases; Maine’s sweeping law removed both religious and personal belief exemptions.

The Thomas More Society is a national not-for-profit law firm that describes its mission as “restoring respect in law for life, family and religious liberty.” Last year, the law firm represented two Catholic priests and three Orthodox Jews who successfully overturned then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s attendance limits for houses of worship during the pandemic.

Bermudez leads East Boston past Brighton

Bermudez leads East Boston past Brighton

In recent years, it seems like East Boston and Brighton have consistently found themselves in a classic battle, at least when it comes to the gridiron.

But on Friday night, the Jets made a statement to the rest of the Boston City League, and ironically, they did so using the ground game. Senior running back Randy Bermudez finished with 15 carries, racking up 137 yards to go with a touchdown, as East Boston took home a convincing 40-16 victory over its rival from the west side of town.

Early on, however, it appeared as though the game was truly going to be a nail-biter. East Boston (1-0) opened things by staging a long drive, one which lasted 5:48. Joshua DeLacruz got the scoring started for the Jets, as he took a handoff on a counter play, then shed multiple tackles on his way to a 28-yard touchdown scamper. Taelor Thompson proceeded to convert a two-point rush, and East Boston took an 8-0 lead.

Brighton would respond on its ensuing possession, as Sahmir Morales connected with Jathan Greene for a 4-yard touchdown pass. Greene would also go on to convert the two-point try, as the Bengals evened the score at 8-all with 2:25 left in the stanza.

With 30 seconds remaining in the first half, Jaye Kincade fought his way into the end zone for a 13-yard touchdown rush, before Thompson hit Alex Valencia for a two-point conversion to provide East Boston a 16-8 lead at the break.

Once the third quarter got started, the Jets lined up for a kickoff. Senior Alvaro Pineda then bounced a squib kick upfield. However, the ball took a wild hop past a couple of Brighton returners, then rolled harmlessly toward the sideline, where it was scooped up by a pile of East Boston special teamers at the Bengals’ 26. Just like that, the momentum completely swung in the Jets’ favor.

“We do that all the time,” East Boston coach John Parziale said. “We’ve been squib kicking for a hundred years. We don’t kick it deep, ever. So, we got lucky tonight and got one of them.”

East Boston took advantage of the freak play, as Thompson led his team deep into the red zone, then closed the drive with a 3-yard quarterback keeper for a touchdown. He would add a two-point rush, giving the Jets a 24-8 lead.

As Brighton searched for a response, the Bengals mishandled a snap, only to watch the ball be swallowed by a swarm of Jets defenders. The turnover proved costly, as Bermudez broke off his longest rush of the night — a 50-yard sprint, which set the Jets up at the Brighton 1.

“I was really excited,” Bermudez said. “I saw a big gap. Knew I had to break it down, and keep on going. Just do my best to try to score a touchdown.”

Bermudez would go on to punch in a 1-yard touchdown run on his next carry with 7:45 left in the third. Kincade would notch a two-point rush to make it a 32-8 contest, and the Jets would coast to the finish from there.

In total, the Jets combined for 306 yards rushing, with Kincade (79 yards) and DeLacruz (55 yards, touchdown) adding to Bermudez’s heroics. Daniel Pedronio registered a 3-yard touchdown as well for East Boston.

Senior Damian Blacknall added a 9-yard touchdown in the effort for Brighton.

“I think the offensive line did well with opening holes for the backs,” Parziale said. “We had a couple of turnovers that went our way, so we had the ball a couple of times, which was really good for us. Brighton’s a good team, they’re well-coached, and they can score at any moment. They’re fast, but we got the breaks tonight early on, and sort of kept piling on.”

Ailing St. Paul photojournalist tells his story from behind the camera

Ailing St. Paul photojournalist tells his story from behind the camera

As usual, Bill Alkofer was behind his camera to capture the moment.

It was in this moment, though, that the photojournalist became the subject.

“I know the exact second when my disease manifested itself,” Alkofer says. “It was at 6:53 p.m. and 41 seconds on October 19th, 2018. I know the time because I was taking a picture at a high school football game.

“I tried to lift the camera over my head — and I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t lift up the camera.”

This moment eventually led to a diagnosis: A variation of ALS — amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease).

There is currently no cure for the progressive condition that steals a person’s ability to move, talk, swallow and — eventually — to breathe. It typically comes with a life expectancy of two to five years.

“As soon as the neurologist said, ‘ALS is on the table,’ it hit me like a ton of bricks,” Alkofer said. “I sat in the parking lot for an hour. … That night, I dreamed of my dad.”

His dad passed away of a similar condition. Could there be a connection?

After the diagnosis, Alkofer reacted like many us do when the news is bad and we need support: He came home.

‘IT’S A MINNESOTA THING’

Alkofer, who most recently worked for the Orange County Register in California, says that he “hails from the hinterlands of North Dakota,” but he also called St. Paul home for many years, some of them as a photographer for the St. Paul Pioneer Press. And it is here — St. Paul — where he has come home.

“This is where my support system is,” he says.

Friends and fellow photojournalists Richard Marshall, left, and Scott Cohen, both of St. Paul, help set up Bill Alkofer’s new bed as he moves into his apartment at an assisted-living facility in St. Paul in June 2021. (Craig Lassig / Special to the Pioneer Press)

The 59-year-old has moved into an assisted-living facility in Highland Park. But, in addition to the caregivers and his family and friends, his support system of almost 20 people also includes people carrying cameras: his fellow photojournalists. They go back — way back. Back when pictures were processed not on computers, but in darkrooms.

“My friends here are still very loyal, with huge hearts,” he says. “It’s a Minnesota thing.”

Maybe it’s a “Bill thing,” too: Alkofer’s community of friends, family and colleagues both past and present — from California to Minnesota — came together for him after his diagnosis, raising more than $25,000 to help get him back to Minnesota, and to pay for a hotel while he waited for a spot to open up in assisted living.

And now his friends are preparing another GoFundMe — to raise money for the living wake Alkofer wants to host, as well as for his funeral.

‘THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PHOTO OF YOUR LIFE’

At the Pioneer Press, Alkofer captured life in Minnesota — and sometimes in North Dakota, too — for almost a decade.

Perhaps his most iconic image is from the Grand Forks flood of 1997.

After the Red River burst through the dikes and flooded the border towns of Grand Forks, N.D., and East Grand Forks, Minn., on April 19, 1997, a fire began burning in downtown Grand Forks.

Later that morning, Alkofer waded into the floodwaters to photograph two firefighters as they stood hip deep in the water, trying to hook up a hose to a fire hydrant — an unsuccessful effort to extinguish the blaze that eventually consumed 11 buildings.

“I wish I could go back,” he says, “and whisper to 1997 Bill, ‘This is the most important photo of your life.’ ”

‘TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE’

In between seeing patients on a recent morning, Dr. Namita Goyal remembers one of her former patients: Bill Alkofer.

“He is very tenacious,” she recalls. “He is very charming.”

He was a good advocate for himself, she recalls, wanting all other possibilities to be ruled out before they reached what was the ultimate diagnosis of ALS.

Goyal is used to seeing the cruelties of this progressive neurodegenerative disease that was first identified in 1869; she is a neurologist at the ALS & Neuromuscular Center at the University of California, Irvine Medical Center in Orange County.

“Every one of my patients have stories that are just as heartbreaking as Bill’s,” she says.

Pro-life group questions Hochul’s push for reproductive rights

NEW YORK (WETM) — An anti-abortion educator with the statewide organization New York State Right to Life (NYSRTL) takes issue with New York’s official stance on abortions.

Gov. Kathy Hochul and several women elected leaders and advocates held a press conference on Monday. There, they announced an official response to the abortion ban passed through the Texas Legislature last month. “I’m going forward,” Hochul said. “I’m not going back.”

“Contemplate which side of history you’re going to be on. Where do you want to put your marker down? Where do you want to draw your line in the sand?” said Lori Kehoe with the NYSRTL. “Are you going to be one of the people who say, ‘No, we can do better for women?’ Or are you going to be one of those people who someday look back and was like, ‘Yeah, I was one of those champions to kill kids because I thought women couldn’t handle it!'” she continued.

Ask Amy: Caregiving spouse is overwhelmed

Ask Amy: Woman should leave abusive relationship

Dear Amy: My wife was recently hospitalized, and, as I have done previously, I sent messages to family and her friends to let them know her status.

After each message, I received many in return, some asking questions that required a personal response.

When my wife was about to be discharged, I received multiple offers to help with shopping and other chores.

I had to write a tactful response to each, explaining that her diet has to be carefully controlled, so I have to do the shopping.

I have such mixed feelings about the incoming messages.

It is wonderful that family and friends care, but the volume of traffic requiring a response has been a burden on me at a difficult time.

What do you think is the proper protocol when receiving an update on CaringBridge, or through a mass email like mine?

Should people think good thoughts but maybe not respond directly?

Respond with a banal thanks/best wishes message?

Or demonstrate interest and caring by asking for more information, thus creating a stressor for the caregiver?

Thanks so much for the insights in your column, which I read in the LA Times.

No. 1 Catholic Memorial holds off challenge from La Salle

Big second half leads Springfield Central to road win at BC High

If you thought John DiBiaso would be full of the warm and fuzzies after his team earned a 42-26 win over La Salle Academy of Rhode Island, then you might not know the Catholic Memorial coach as well as you think.

After Friday night’s win, DiBiaso told his team in no uncertain terms that he was not pleased at all with the performance.

“The Super Bowl losses (by the Knights in 2018 and 2019) were better than that,” DiBiaso said.

Well, if the win over La Salle was so bad, you have to wonder what the Knights will do when they play up to their coach’s liking.

Junior quarterback JC Petrongolo completed 15 of 25 passes for 235 yards and three touchdowns, two of which went to classmate Jaedn Skeete for scoring tosses of 49 and 6 yards. Through two games against out-of-state competition, the Knights are averaging 43 points per game, and it remains a mystery whether someone they play can run with their fleet of speedsters.

But none of that satisfied DiBiaso, who was fixated on his team’s shortcomings.

“What didn’t I like?” DiBiaso said. “The penalties. The turnovers. Guys cramping up. Not playing until the whistle. Playing through the whistle and getting personal fouls. I didn’t like any of it.”

The message got through to Skeete, who caught four passes for 68 yards.

“We’ve just got to do better,” Skeete said. “Our performance wasn’t that good. Luckily, we came out with a win today, but we need to be more disciplined. There were too many flags on the field. We’ve just got to work harder. We’ve got to do better. It starts in practice.”

The Knights took the opening kick and scored in less than a minute on a 3-yard touchdown run by Datrell Jones. La Salle answered with a 17-yard touchdown pass from Dean Varrichione to Justin Benson to cut the CM lead to 7-6. In the second quarter, CM answered on a 49-yard Petrongolo pass over the middle to Skeete, who outraced the La Salle secondary to the end zone.

La Salle then cut the deficit to 14-12 on a 3-yard scoring run by Jameszell Lassister, and it looked like it would stay that way until halftime. But another one of the terrific CM junior receivers, Kole Osinubi, took a 25-yard pass from Petrongolo to give the Knights a 21-12 lead at halftime.

“We try to distribute it like a basketball team,” DiBiaso said of his skill players. “This guy gets it. That guy gets it. But, again, we didn’t do as good a job as we should.”

CM finally began to pull away in the third quarter. Jones added a 13-yard touchdown run, then Skeete lost his man for a 6-yard score as CM pushed its advantage to 35-12. La Salle scored two touchdowns in the fourth sandwiched around a Carson Harwood 3-yard scoring jaunt.

Police arrest Florida suspect after collision at Gloversville school

Police arrest Florida suspect after collision at Gloversville school

GLOVERSVILLE, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The Gloversville Police Department reports the arrest of Justin J. Hughes, 31, of Gloversville on Wednesday.

Police say that, since the start of the school year, they’d received many complaints about parking near Boulevard Elementary School during drop-off and dismissal. Police patrols were increased to enforce parking restrictions and maintain a safe situation for students.

During dismissal on Wednesday, an officer handling parking at the school encountered a car parked in the median of East Boulevard. He contacted the driver—later identified as Hughes—to tell him to move, because he was not parked in a legal spot. The officer reportedly told him to pull over for a traffic stop, but Hughes allegedly fled down First Avenue.

The officer pursued. Police say that Hughes pulled into a driveway, turned around, and headed back toward the school, so the officer moved his marked police car into the oncoming car’s lane to block him. The officer said he was afraid of Hughes returning to the area populated with parents and students.

The patrol car in his path was reportedly damaged in the collision with Hughes, who was arrested. He was charged with:

  • Third-degree criminal mischief
  • Obstruction of governmental administration
  • Resisting arrest
  • Unlawfully fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle
  • Reckless driving

Back on March 16, Gloversville detectives helped U.S. Marshals arrest Hughes, who was considered a fugitive. He was wanted at that time on several outstanding Florida warrants for:

  • Possession or promotion of a photo or movie of a sexual performance by a child
  • Possession of a photograph of a sexual performance by a child
  • Distribution of obscene material to a child

When he was arrested this week, Hughes was reportedly wearing a GPS monitoring bracelet as a result of the case in Okaloosa County, Florida. He was arraigned in Gloversville court and remanded to the Fulton County Correctional Facility without bail. He was also served with a Letter of Trespass restricting him from school properties.

Gloversville police say they don’t usually release mug shots of suspects, but decided to release Hughes’ based on the nature of the Florida charges and his presence on school grounds. They say to call (518) 773-4577 if you have any information on this matter.

NEWS10 requested a copy of bodycam footage and to speak with the officer involved in the incident. Our request was denied.

Murphy steps up to lead Reading past Barnstable

Published

Big second half leads Springfield Central to road win at BC High

READING — When Reading needed him most, James Murphy delivered.

Murphy threw for 257 yards and two touchdowns to go along with a crucial late third-down completion as No. 12 Reading outlasted 10th-ranked Barnstable, 18-14, on a mist-filled Friday night in Reading.

Murphy compiled 134 yards in the second half, 57 of which came on the Rockets (2-0) go-ahead drive at the start of the fourth quarter.

“This was one of the better games I have been part of as our guys played the full 48 minutes,” Murphy said. “The offensive line gave me more time in the second half so all I needed to do was put the ball where it needed to be.”

After tailing the Rockets 12-7 midway through the third quarter, Barnstable grabbed the advantage using its physical style of play to seemingly wear down Reading. Eugene Jordan capped off the 10-play, 55-yard drive with a seven yard plunge into the end zone to put Barnstable on top 14-12.

Murphy and the Rockets responded. The junior quarterback led the offense on a 15-play, 75-yard drive highlighted by a five yard touchdown reception by Jesse Doherty to put Reading back in front 18-14 with 8:48 remaining.

After the two sides traded turnovers, Barnstable found itself with an opportunity to take the lead with less than five minutes to play. The Reading defense, however, forced a turnover on downs with Alex DiNapoli making a key pass breakup on fourth down to turn the ball back over to the Rockets.

Barnstable had one last chance after forcing Reading into a third and 12, but Murphy stepped up in the pocket and fired a perfect ball to Doherty for the first down that sealed the win for the Rockets.

“Hats off to Barnstable, they came out with a great game plan,” Reading coach John Fiore said. “James was fantastic. Our receivers came up big. We had some physical matchups but our guys kept going after it.”

Reading opened the scoring on its second drive of the game. On first and 10 from his own 27, Murphy dropped back and fired a quick wide receiver screen to Ryan Strout who navigated traffic and took off down the far sideline for a 73 yard touchdown and a 6-0 Rockets lead.

Barnstable jumped in front to begin the second quarter as on its first frame of the stanza Henry Machnik rolled left and heaved a ball to the back of the end zone where Colin Fay made a miraculous catch for a 29 yard score that, coupled with the point after, gave the Redhawks a 7-6 advantage.
