phone lines for six years there were girls that looked young to be there every day under 18 do you think I have no way of knowing that truly but they appeared to be young to me he says he saw pictures of topless girls all over the compound that strike you as odd really odd but it was a conversation with another one of Dean's employees from Palm Beach that made Scully quit his job he said what's with the young girls and I said oh yeah I'm not real comfortable with the young girls thing – is that in West Palm Beach as well he said worse he pleaded guilty to soliciting prostitution in Florida in 2008 as part of a controversial plea deal in a civil case against the government about that deal one accuser says she took part in an orgy on Epstein's private island in 2002 with eight other young girls who appeared to be under the age of 18 Epstein registered as a sex offender in the Virgin Islands but unlike in the US where he had level three sex offender status considered the most dangerous here he was classified as tier one it meant he had to check in with local authorities once a year looking back Scully a father of three daughters tells us he regrets not speaking out sooner when you think about the accusations against him what does that make you think of in terms of your your kids I'm awful glad that they weren't visitors on the island if anyone calls for help on that Island

  8. Cancer from radiation from the small nuclear bombs Israel used to bring down the towers. Some of us read the highly classified docs that show the DOE found the fingerprints of plutonium from bombs we know were made in US Sandia Labs. Bush Sr. secretly gave Israel several tactical nuclear weapons.

  9. in the segment of ICE making that arrest of an illegal alien. First of all. How do these people believe that they have rights, after breaking the law in sneaking into the country. It just does not make sense. ILLEGAL alien with LEGAL RIGHTS. ICE did what they had to do when this illegal hindered and obstructed immigration officers from executing a lawful arrest. So what, the officers were to stand they forever until this illegal decided to surrender or attempt to take off in his vehicle? ICE officers did the right thing in enforcing the law. And i stand by the ICE officers. GUYS KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

  13. @18:22 – no, it can't happen to 'anybody' – COME IN LEGALLY AND THERE IS NO WORRY. He's here illegally – THATS A PROBLEM.

  14. I would like to see more ICE lock ups. These people are Fed felons. If I was a Fed Felon how long would it take for them to find me? Years months weeks I am thinking days..

  15. My Big Idea as a presidential candidate would be to revamp the dental health industry insurance policy. For the government to oversee that sector to make sure that dental care is top priority. Not only is it better for our health, but also very, very, necessary. We need more government subsidies to adhere to private citizens medical dental emergencies!! It is too much for profit and little to non -non profit . Easier access , easier payment plans especially for the non insured!

  16. For the state of New York! You better take care of these 9/11 Victims! Because we all know, that you will be needing the First Responders again!
