Ghislaine Maxwell's attorney claims her personal emails were hacked and damaging information is at risk of being released

Maxwell, pictured in 1995 with Epstein, was accused of arranging underage girls to have sex with the pedophile - an allegation she denies
Ghislaine Maxwell's personal emails have been hacked, and damaging information, including the names of individuals linked to Jeffrey Epstein's sex trafficking case, are at risk of being publicly released.

The revelation was made in a letter filed by the British socialite's lawyers in the defamation case brought against her by Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Guiffre, DailyMail.com has learned.

The letter was sent by Maxwell's attorney, Ty Gee, on December 5 to New York federal court Judge Loretta A. Preska but made public last week. The letter addresses the materials that should remain sealed or redacted in the case.

It notes 'the difficulty and complexity' of the process as there are more than 8,600 pages, adding that it is 'difficult-to-overstate importance to the lives of Ms. Maxwell and the non-parties'.

Januhairy: Encouraging women to grow body hair does nothing to promote equality, it's toxic feminism

The Januhairy campaign, which encourages women to ditch razors and let their body hair grow naturally 'for charity', is not an act of bravery but rather an example of herd thinking and toxic feminism.

So how's everyone's Januhairy going? Have all the people who 'identify as female' chucked out their razors in an act of bravery not seen since 1429 when Joan of Arc rode into Orleans in white armour on the back of a white horse to lead her army to victory over the English?

Just like Joan of Arc, these modern day heroines are trying to look like men. In Ms Arc's case it was out of necessity. She cropped her hair and dressed in men's clothes to make the 11-day journey across enemy territory to convince the embattled crown prince Charles of Valois to allow her to lead his troops.

The women of Januhairy are doing it because they are victims of toxic feminism.

Through vagina hat tinted glasses, they're seeing it as an act of protest to break down barriers and destigmatise hairy legs and armpits. The unfortunate reality is that by indulging in decadent gender wars, they're making a mockery of the feminist movement.

Australian Aboriginal community asks authorities for permission to ban Christian missionaries

Flag
Elders in an Aboriginal community in Western Australia (WA) are seeking to prevent Christian missionaries from visiting their region on the grounds that it is undermining and helping to erase their traditional Indigenous culture.

Christian missionaries belonging to religious organizations such as Kingdom Aviation Ministries (KAM) and Chariots of Fire Ministries have been making strong inroads into remote Indigenous communities in recent years. The trend has alarmed traditional Aboriginal elders who claim that the Christian missionaries are destroying the values and culture native to the region for thousands of years.

The elders have requested that authorities in the state prevent a Christian organization — which remains unnamed — from further encroaching on native land to carry out proselytizing activities and attempts to gain converts to their religion.

WA Commissioner for Equal Opportunity John Byrne said that the sect would be unable to lodge a complaint if the banishment comes into effect because the religious freedom grounds don't allow them to trespass Indigenous communities that have explicitly rejected their presence.

WADA suspends Moscow anti-doping lab over data manipulation that Russians say were accessed from abroad

The World Anti-Doping Agency has officially suspended the Russian national laboratory, rejecting the claims by Russian experts that data tampering originated with former staffers who fled to the US as 'whistleblowers.'

The National Anti-Doping Laboratory of Moscow was suspended on Wednesday with immediate effect, by the decision of WADA Executive Committee chair Witold Bańka - a Polish athlete turned politician - and following the recommendations of the Laboratory Expert Group.

WADA suspended the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) in December and banned the country's athletes from competing in the Olympics and international events for the next four years, citing "discovery... of manipulation of some of the data extracted from the Moscow Laboratory in January 2019," which therefore violated RUSADA's 2018 reinstatement.

Multiple people were shot in downtown Seattle on Jan. 22, 2019.
Authorities in Seattle are searching for suspects after one person was gunned down and at least six others were wounded outside a McDonald's on Wednesday evening

More than a dozen police cruisers and ambulances responded to the scene in downtown Seattle at around 5 p.m. local time amid reports of shots fired and multiple victims down. One woman was pronounced dead at the scene, while six others were transported to the nearby Harborview Medical Center with injuries ranging from minor to life-threatening, according to the Seattle Police Department.

The victims suffered injuries to the legs, abdomen and buttocks. Among the wounded was a 55-year-old woman in critical condition who had to undergo surgery and a 9-year-old boy in serious condition, according to a spokesperson for Harborview Medical Center, who said a total of seven victims from the incident were admitted. One patient was treated and released.

It's unclear why there was a discrepancy between police and the hospital in the number of injured, but police said someone may have transported themselves.

Historian slams Greta Thunberg: "I don't see her in Beijing or Delhi"

Why are the biggest polluters being ignored?
niall Ferguson
Historian Niall Ferguson has slammed Greta Thunberg's climate change hypocrisy at Davos, asking why "I don't see her in Beijing or Delhi."

Teenage environmentalist Thunberg gave another hysterical speech at the global confab yesterday in which she claimed, "Our house is still on fire. Your inaction is fueling the flames by the hour. We are still telling you to panic, and to act as if you loved your children above all else."

"We don't want these things done in 2050, 2030, or even 2021," Thunberg said. "We want this done now."

Ferguson, Senior Fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, questioned why Thunberg isn't directing her message to the biggest polluters on the planet.


Comment: Indeed. 'Global warming' - much like other Western issues; 'Russian-meddling', for another example - primarily concerns internal Western politics. Specifically, maintaining the current 'order of things' through the current global 'transition'. Neither the US stewards of empire nor the Davos set want to see Western countries 'straying' and strategically realigning with Russia/China/others. So the herd is corralled with myths about how they can 'save the planet' by remaining invested in supporting the status quo. The real value of these myths will become apparent as the climate becomes even more extreme and people look to their govts to 'fix' it (which they won't because they can't stop what's coming).

Idaho joins movement to prevent transgender athletes from competing against girls

A lawmaker in Idaho is joining legislators in crafting legislation to protect female athletes from having to compete against biological males in school sports.

Republican State Representative Barbara Ehardt told a local news outlet that she will introduce the bill that requires individuals to compete in women's sports based on their biological sex not their gender identity.

"Boys and men will not be able to take the place of girls and women in sports because it's not fair. We cannot physically compete against boys and men. The inherent biological, scientific advantages that boys and men have over girls and women, even if they were to take hormones, even if they were to spend a couple of years on estrogen, that's not going to replace the inherent biological advantages that boys and men have," Ehardt told EastIdahoNews.com.

Biological male MMA fighter who broke a woman's skull, twice, named "bravest athlete in history"

fallon fox trans MMA fighter
MMA fighter Fallon Fox, who twice broke an opponent's skull to win a match, has been called the bravest athlete in history. Fox, a male to female transgender athlete, destroyed Erika Newsome in a Coral Gables, FL, MMA fight during which she "secured a grip on Newsome's head... With her hands gripping the back of Newsome's skull, she delivered a massive knee, bringing her leg up while pulling her opponent's head down. The blow landed on Newsome's chin and dropped her, unconscious, face-first on the mat." That was Newsome's last pro fight.


Comment: Remember back when a man beating a woman senseless and breaking her skull was considered a crime? Now it's considered so brave that awards should be given. This is what progress looks like, bigot.

Douglas Murray: Terrifying our children with doom mongering propaganda on climate change is nothing less than abuse

eco anxiety depressed kid
Have your children got eco-anxiety? How would you know if they had?

According to a variety of psychologists and psychiatrists, talk of a 'climate crisis' has led to an upsurge in young people reporting feelings of anxiety, helplessness and guilt.

The symptoms of this newly coined syndrome are real enough, according to the Royal College of Psychiatrists - and why wouldn't they be in a world pumped full of one-sided propaganda?

We saw this over Christmas when Channel 4 screened a special edition of Gogglebox called Gogglesprogs, which featured viewers as young as six.

Comment: It's similar to any child growing up in the 70s' and 80s' with the constant threat of nuclear annihilation looming over their heads, although certainly the propaganda seems to have been ramped up significantly in this new iteration. There's clearly an advantage to raising generations with the constant fear that ultimate destruction is right around the corner. The more a population lives in fear, the more easy they are to control.

#MeToo setback: French court finds assault accuser guilty of defamation

A protester displays messages in support of the #MeToo movement at a rally in Paris, 2017
French author Ariane Fornia has been found guilty of defamation, after a former government minister challenged her claim of sexual assault. The verdict is another blow for the #MeToo movement in France.

A Paris court ordered Fornia, the daughter of former minister Eric Besson, to pay a symbolic one euro in damages and 3,000 euros in legal fees to Pierre Joxe, a former socialist minister who Fornia defamed with an allegation of sexual assault.

In 2017, Fornia accused Joxe - now 85 - of sexually assaulting her during an opera performance in Paris seven years earlier. She did not make an official complaint, but wrote about the encounter in a blog post, describing how "He slides his hand inside my thigh, goes up to my crotch...I utter a cry of muffled indignation. Ten minutes later, he starts again."
