2020.09.05 12:40 nstav13 [Spoilers] The United States and Westward Expansion - Common Setting Discussions

A common trait Assassin’s Creed groups have is the constant theorizing about future settings, because historical tourism is one of the best parts of the series. This series of posts will act as a counter to my Mildly Obscure setting discussions, but rather than looking at a single point, I will be taking a broad setting that is popular and looking at several potential settings to explore within it. Today’s setting is the United States. I want to say that I personally am not a huge fan of the setting, and like WW2, worry about whether or not Ubisoft could actually tactfully do these settings, but due to the lore potential, I’m willing to discuss them. Most of these settings would suffer from issues that plagued Syndicate such as proximity to the modern-day causing fake events and characters to be made to avoid lawsuits, parkour issues from wide streets and small buildings, or painfully tall buildings, and poor weapon variety due to legal carrying restrictions.

Shays’ Rebellion
The American Revolution had a heavy toll on thousands of soldiers. Besides the loss of life and injuries, many men never received their full pay. In the early 1780s, this started to become a major issue, as men returning home from warlike Daniel Shay were being asked to pay large debts and taxes that they couldn’t afford because of the lack of pay. Many protests were held in Massachusetts from 1782 to 1785 against these taxes and to get the pay the veterans had earned. In August 1786, protestors organized to begin forcefully shutting down the courts. Government officials denounced the mob mentality but did nothing to stop it. Daniel Shays would start to organize more of these shutdowns and lead about 300 men to the Springfield Courts, which were then protected by William Shepard who held about 800 men at his command. After a day of demonstrations with no violence, Shepard led his men to the Springfield Armory due to rumors of the mob planning to attack it. By October of 1786 more protests had successfully shut down courts in Taunton, Great Barrington, and Concord. State officials now feared the violence and the potential for civil war and Samuel Adams worked with the state officials to draft a riot act to suspend habeas corpus and imprison the rioters without a trial while advocating for the execution of anyone who tried to rebel against the republic. With the new legislation in place, several of the movement’s leaders were arrested in eastern Massachusetts, causing 4,000 men to form an open rebellion against the “tyrannical state”.
The open rebellion caused Benjamin Lincoln to be granted money to form a militia and march west on January 19th. By that point, Shepard had amassed a local militia of 1200 men at the Springfield Federal Armory (a place he was not technically legally allowed to defend as a local militia)and Daniel Shays had coordinated with Luke Day to advance on the federal armory. Due to correspondence being stopped by Shepard’s men, Shays didn’t know Day was running late by a day and arrived at the armory on January 25th with no support from the west. Shepard had 2 cannons fired as a warning shot which scattered Shays forces. General Lincoln managed to track the army down to Pelham on the 4th of February during a snowstorm and capture about 150 men. Shay went into hiding as Lincoln’s army melted away from lack of funding. By the end of February, the 3000 man army dwindled to less than 200, and during that time a force of 200 men regrouped to attack Stockbridge on early February 27th. The remaining army eventually caught up with them in the night at Sheffield leading to the bloodiest battle of the rebellion with over 30 men killed, and 150 captured. Shays’ Rebellion was ultimately a failure, but it had a large impact on the creation of the modern US constitution and the creation of a standing army. I also think it may be interesting if Shay Cormac had taken the name Daniel Shays during the Revolutionary War to act as a Templar mole searching for the Piece of Eden George Washington would find and that the “little revolution” he referenced at the end of Rogue was not the French Revolution, but him orchestrating Shays’ Rebellion against the new republic that the Templars largely fought against. Daniel Shays would eventually die in 1825, and while Shay would be very old by that point, it would make sense to be that late due to Shay’s relationship with his grandson Cudgel.

War of 1812
America’s relationship with Britain continued to strain during the years following the Revolutionary War. Britain used its colonies in Canada to give supplies and aid to Native American tribes with the intent of those tribes attacking American settlers. By 1805 a confederation of Native Americans formed in the great lakes and would actively kill any European-American settlers. Leading this was Tecumseh who was the brother of the original mastermind of the confederation. This conflict would lead the American government to lead the Battle of Tippecanoe against Tecumseh in 1811, and hostilities only increased from there. During the Napoleonic Wars, Britain set up large blockades of ports to stop Americans from trading with the French. While enforcing this, British ships had killed dozens of Americans and impressed even more into service. On June 1st, 1812, President James Madison sent Congress a list of grievances the United States had with Britain, and 4 days later, Congress voted to declare war for the first time.
The first stage of the war primarily took place in the North East US and Canada. I’d personally say that this should be the bulk of the main map with cities like Baltimore, Detroit, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Montreal, Toronto, and Quebec. And then we could see the other primary theatres as smaller self-contained maps. William Hull initially led the charge into Canada in early July of 1812, only to be chased back out by Shawnee natives combined with forces of the British Major General Isaac Brock who then laid siege to Detroit in August. Following Hull’s defeat, General William Henry Harrison took control of the American Armies and led them to victory in several battles around the Great Lakes, primarily against the Tecumseh Confederacy. On October 5th, 1813, Tecumseh was killed at the Battle of the Thames. The next year was a constant back and forth between Americans and British fighting over forts along the Canada-US border with several notable sieges at York (Toronto), Niagra, Fort Erie, and Plattsburgh. To the west, a series of battles were fought from 1812 to 1814 along the Mississippi River reaching down to St Louis.
The east coast of the US saw a lot of action during the war. Starting in 1812, the British set up a series of blockades around the US. The blockade ended up serving as a large way for Black Refugees to escape slavery and get to Canada where they’d be freed. It also gave partial control of the Chesapeake Bay, and despite attempts to fortify the Potomac River in 1813, by 1814 the British freed of the Napoleonic Wars sent more ships to the war in America, breaking through the fortifications. Their first major attack was the Burning of Washington DC in response to the Battle of York (Toronto) a year prior. The British then went north and led a land and naval battle at Baltimore (the naval bombardment of Baltimore was partially what inspired the lyrics of the Star-Spangled Banner). During the battle, the British General Ross was killed, leaving command to Colonel Arthur Brooke who after finishing the battle, commanded his troops and ships to New Orleans.
The Creek War was the southernmost war partially influenced by Tecumseh’s Confederacy. The Lower Creeks in Alabama had been trading partners for the US and Settlers, adopting many of their cultural practices, while the Upper Creeks controlled the rivers and were concerned about the loss of the culture and lifestyle to encroaching US settlers. Over the course of 2 years, General Andrew Jackson would lead US and Lower Creek troops against the Upper Creeks and ultimately gained 21 million acres for the US in what is now Alabama and Georgia. During this American General James Wilkinson took the city of Mobile and part of western Spanish Florida. At the end of 1814 and January of 1815, the British would lead multiple offenses against New Orleans and Mobile, losing each time. By that point, both the Americans and the British had sent delegates to Ghent to negotiate a stalemate. On December 24th the Treaty of Ghent was signed, but it wouldn’t be until February that the news reached America and the fighting ceased. The most lore we have is that every presidency was contested between Assassins and Templars and the first Templar President was Franklin D. Roosevelt. I do really like this period for opening up the capability of expanding Connor’s Story, tying up Shay, maybe meet Shay’s son. There’s a ton of lore possibilities here. We also know that the apple Connor dropped in the ocean was retrieved by the 20th century, so it’s possible that part of the heavy naval portion of this war and blockade was a British effort to search for the apple.

Mexican-American War
In 1836 the Texas Revolution saw Texas freed from Mexico to the chagrin of Santa Anna, the sitting Mexican President. 9 years later, the Texas Republic continued to face threats from Mexico which did not view them as sovereign; the United States, as a result, annexed Texas. Texas, however, still claimed more land than it owned, and Mexico refused to recognize this, leading to American President James K. Polk to send an emissary to Mexico City to negotiate to buy land on good faith while also sending American troops over the border with the intention of provoking an armed military response. It did, and after American troops were fired upon at Palo Alto, America declared the Mexican-American War on May 13th, 1846. The war itself was largely controversial, including Abraham Lincoln; and many northern abolitionists saw it as a way to strengthen slavery in the south.
The first campaign of the war was to capture what became New Mexico. Santa Fe was captured by August of 1846 but rebels in the area led small assaults and raids for another year until the Battle of Cienega Creek. Following this, General Kearny marched his troops across the Sonoran Desert to California. It took 3 months for news of the war to originally reach California, and when it did, American troops planted flags in San Francisco. American armies would lead several battles just outside San Diego and Los Angeles, with small rebels popping up near San Francisco, but California was largely conquered by January of 1847.
Throughout 1846 troops marched from San Antonio and Corpus Christi to be met with battles in Monterrey and Buena Vista. By March 9th, 1847 General Scott was ordered to bring the war to a close by President Polk by capturing Mexico City. Commodore Matthew C Perry arrived at Veracruz on March 24th and opened it up with a naval bombardment. Despite several soldiers coming down with Yellow Fever during the 12-day siege, General Scott pushed on to Puebla and then Mexico City with Santa Anna expecting the diseases to wipe out the army. After a stop at Puebla due to the sick, Scott marched on to the Battle for Mexico City, a week-long series of battles that left Scott the military governor of the city on September 15th, 1847. Santa Anna then attempted to besiege Puebla but failed due to the Battle of Huamantla lifting the siege in early October. Following the defeat, a new Mexican Government led by Manuel de la Pena y Pena ceded over military control from Santa Anna to General Jose Joaquin de Herrera. The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed on February 2nd, 1848, with nearly 339 million acres of land given to the United States while the US paid $15 million dollars (approximately 5 cents per acre). Once again there’s next to no lore in this area, and we could see Shay’s son or Grandson be active during the war. That said, the United States was extremely aggressive during the war, and making assassins allied with either the US or Mexico could feel somewhat forced, as this was ultimately two countries fighting over land.

The Civil War
I personally don’t wish to discuss this setting too much, as I don’t believe Ubisoft could actually do this setting well, especially with the current lore. First of all, is the reasoning for the war. States' rights were ultimately the reason for southern secession; and slavery was the biggest of those concerns, and many smaller concerns revolved around slavery. Northern abolitionists had been sending over voters to commit voting fraud and try to force states below the Mason-Dixon line to not allow slavery. The Northern states refused to follow the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, multiple states were displeased with high federal spending, they had issues with the regulation of the banks which hurt southern states more than northern, Northern States ruled congress due to population density, and there were many questions about how the south would survive economically if slavery was abolished. While we all agree in the modern-day that slavery is wrong (and our assassin character should agree), people did not historically hold that view. And to be fair to their fears, following the civil war the southern economy did crash, affecting more than the 1% of land-owning slave owners. Even the now freed blacks had nowhere to go or anything to do because they spent their entire lives on plantations. This resulted in many blacks essentially becoming serfs for their former masters. Segregation and Jim Crow laws only increased after the civil war due to racism, and despite freed black men legally being able to vote, they rarely could because of new racist restrictions. The south wasn’t alone in enacting racist legislation though, as New York has been called the capital of Jim Crow. Northerners may have been against slavery, but that doesn’t mean they cared what came next. Templars were primarily behind the south and secession, while assassins backed the north and abolitionists. Abraham Lincoln’s election is what ultimately set off the secession despite not even being an abolitionist. He, despite being against slavery, agreed that it was sanctioned by the US constitution under the 10th amendment. He cared more about keeping the union together, and still, the south seceded. Lincoln couldn’t let that stand and put northern troops in Fort Sumter, squarely in southern territory. He loaded the fort with arms and rations enough to last a long siege. The newly forming Confederacy of the United States saw this as a threat and fired upon the fort. Just like with the Mexican American War, Lincoln could now claim that not only did he want to keep the Union whole, but the south fired first. Lincoln then (illegally) declared Martial Law in Maryland in order to make sure the capital (Washington DC) wasn’t surrounded by enemies.
Despite the Assassins backing the north, we know from the movie that Assassins also supported the south. Perhaps this was similar to how General Lee was a general for the confederacy because of his family ties despite being against slavery? Perhaps Assassins and templars in the South agreed about very real potential issues with civil rights in the wake of slavery’s abolition and felt the solution could be worked out more diplomatically. We also know Templars controlled major parts of the North. William “Boss” Tweed was the boss of Tammany Hall and played a major part in the Democratic Party’s organization and the corruption in New York City. He was also a Templar master who worked with Cudgel Cormac (the grandson of Shay), to orchestrate the New York City Draft Riots in 1863. An assassin, Varius, worked for the Union and delivered a PoE to General Ulysses S Grant. John Wilkes Booth, a templar affiliate, assassinated Abraham Lincoln and then was killed by assassins 12 days later. Lincoln’s successor, Andrew Johnson, would go on to ratify the 13th through 15th amendments. His presidency was also about when the gilded age began, a period of 30 years marred by mass corruption and monopoly overreach during intense industrialization. Personally, I don’t think Ubisoft should attempt this setting. The rampant racism, the debate over what was a state right, the rise of organizations like the KKK, the bloody battles, and intense politics all still heavily impact the united states. Some men and women today can still say that their grandparents were freed from slavery between 1863-1865. The racism and corruption that poured forth in the aftermath can still be felt by many within the United States, even if such institutions have been since criminalized. The Civil War can be a very sensitive topic to people all across the United States, and it should be handled sensitively. I think there can be some very nuanced lore about the assassins and templars' roles during the war and why they chose certain sides. But ultimately I do not trust Ubisoft to handle this setting well. Unity nor Syndicate maturely handled themes of extremism or marxism well, and Origins and Odyssey have just blatantly ignored a lot of historical sexism and slavery. Freedom Cry was about freeing slaves and yet the slave ship you board shows a handful of men all chained separately and sitting up rather than the barbaric and cruel reality of the transatlantic slave trade that intended to spread disease and filth to break the body and mind of the slaves. Ignoring Injustices does not respect them or what millions of people went through.

Cowboys, Outlaws, and Indians in the West
The United States is incredibly beautiful, and the current games in this series have barely scratched the surface. Luckily, the westward expansion and wars America waged against the Native Americans are not only full of potential for fantastic (and tragic) stories but also can showcase a lot of America’s landscapes.
Founded in 1850 by Allan Pinkerton in 1850 the Pinkerton Detective Agency was a private security force that rose to prominence during and after the civil war. They’re well known for investigating and causing the collapse of several unions, investigating murders, serving as bodyguards for Abraham Lincoln, and infiltrating the Molly Maguires (a secret Irish organization in Pennsylvania). They famously were hired to hunt down Jesse James, the Reno Gang, and Butch Cassidy’s Wild Bunch. Outlaws were common in the south around Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. Some like Jesse James and Black Bart were from farther North. Outlaws would generally prey on stagecoaches, trains, and banks, easy targets for quick money. Local sheriffs would then form posses to track down and bring the outlaws to justice. In cases of more notorious outlaws, detective agencies like the Pinkertons may be involved. Recently, however, the Pinkerton Agency has sued Rockstar for their portrayal in Red Dead Redemption 2; so it may not be possible to use them and we may see another Syndicate situation with Ubisoft making up fake gangs and agencies. Some towns and settlements began to pop up that supported outlaws. And these old west towns weren’t just down south in Texas and Arizona but stretched all the way north to the Dakotas, most famously including Deadwood where Wild Bill Hickock and Calamity Jane died. Some other famous towns include Tombstone Arizona and Cody Wyoming. Arizona was home to a number of towns like Phoenix, Tucson, and Flagstaff which was close to the Grand Canyon. Las Vegas existed as a small settlement in what is now Nevada, only a little to the west of the Grand Canyon, but wasn’t founded officially until 1905. California is home to Death Valley and part of the Mojave and Sonoran Deserts while also holding massive mountains and rolling hills covered in redwoods. To the east were cities like Albuquerque and John Cross ranch (now Truth or Consequences) in New Mexico, Amarillo, El Paso, Austin, Houston, and Dallas in Texas. North of Arizona is Utah, home of the Mormons and Salt Lake City, containing Arches National Park. Right next door is the rocky mountains and Denver that was founded during the gold rush. Wyoming contains Grand Teton, Devil’s Tower, and Yellowstone. Montana and the Dakotas are filled with forests and stunning hills and landmarks like the Badlands. Kansas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Iowa are largely flat open plains, home of large cattle ranches and cowboys, and easy targets for the outlaws while Louisiana is just a flat swamp. East of the Mississippi are still some plains until you reach the Appalachians which border the east Coast. The only place I’d say we should go that’s east of the Mississippi is Detroit, which was called the Paris of the West and home to the Pinkertons.
Despite the fun lawlessness found commonly throughout the frontier as explored by Red Dead Redemption, America also had a much darker side. The westward expansion that exploded into the west following the Mexican-American War and the Gold Rush meant violently pushing Native Americans out of their land into reservations. This led to dozens of wars and battles in a series called the Indian Wars. I don’t have enough space to go into details about the wars, but between 1850 and 1900 there were well over 50 wars just west of the Mississippi between Native American tribes and the United States military. This is even ignoring the trail of tears in the southeast. Some of the more famous wars are the Sioux Wars and the bulk of these lasted from 1854-1890. They included some of the most famous American Generals and Native American leaders including George Cook, George Custer, Little Crow, Crazy Horse, and Sitting Bull. During the Great Sioux War Lieutenant Colonel George Custer and over 300 of his men were killed at the Battle of Little Bighorn. Years later in 1890, one of the most famous incidents occurred where Kicking Bull and Sitting Bull led to their deaths. The natives entered into Ghost Dance War, and during it, the US Army entered the native camp at Wounded Knee and after hearing a gunshot, massacred 350 native men, women, and children. Those are just 2 famous events, the map linked above under Indian Wars shows the locations of dozens more battles and forts. Once again, this setting would need a lot of care and respect to do it right and is something I’d be very concerned about Ubisoft doing well.

  • As mentioned last week, WWF has changed up the bracket for the Wrestlemania IV tournament. They showed the updated bracket on tv this past weekend without any announcement or explanation for the change, and the only explanation Dave can find for why they have updated the bracket is so they can get DiBiase vs. Savage in as the final. So, now that we have an updated bracket, Dave goes into speculation mode. There are only three possible winners here in his eyes: Hogan, DiBiase, and Savage. He’s not going to rule out the possibility of a Hogan win, though he puts that as least likely due to the movie being in the works. DiBiase would seem to be the favorite, then. But if that’s the case he doesn’t really need the title any earlier than July in order to set up the august ppv. Hogan winning would probably require Hogan vs. Rude for the final. Savage or DiBiase are best off winning by facing the other in the final. Dave’s already leaning toward a Hogan/Andre double elimination as the most likely possibility there (whether they double eliminate through some kind of draw or through Hogan winning then getting jumped and being ”too injured” to continue by a bunch of guys paid by DiBiase is anybody’s guess). Of course, the real question is why change the bracket so suddenly? Did they just not think through the original one before they put it up that it would probably lead to Don Muraco being the most exciting face they could put against DiBiase in the final (or Savage/Rude)? It beggars belief they wouldn’t think this through hard, so there’s gotta be some reason like the original plan no longer seeming like a good idea. Is it that they’ve got cold feet about DiBiase’s drawing power? Does that put Savage as the likely winner, only to drop it to DiBiase in July for Hogan’s return in August?
Look: Final bracket, drawn by Dave
  • Dave’s doing a poll for those who watch both Wrestlemania and Clash of the Champions. Six questions: 1) which show did you enjoy more; 2) which show you thought was better overall; 3) match of the night; 4) your opinion of blood and wrestling; 5) should wrestling be regulated by state athletic commissions; 6) a question for those tape traders who sample widely: what promotion’s style do you enjoy most? You know what? These aren’t bad questions. I think we should answer these in the comments.
  • Syndicated tv ratings for the week ending February 7 are out and NWA is on the rise. They ranked sixth with an 8.9 national rating on 185 stations, just behind WWF which was fifth with an 11.4 rating on 258 stations. WTBS does not count for viewership on this. Probably too close for Vince’s liking. Of course, these ratings aren’t an accurate measure of how many different people are watching, as many watch more than one program from each of these syndicated packages so some viewers are counted three, four, or more times. But syndication ratings are the numbers advertisers look to, so that makes them meaningful because it determines how much money they can get by selling ads. And ad revenue from tv is a significant part of WWF’s advantage: they’ve been able to get a lot of it and leave every other promotion in the proverbial dust. The three shows at the top (Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, and Oprah) are all just one show in each tv market, so those homes are counted just once, which really puts things into perspective when you consider WWF (fifth place) was watched in 10,078,000 homes across four shows (thus a home that watches Wrestling Challenge, Superstars, Spotlight, and All-American would be counted four times) and Crockett got 7,868,000 homes (with three TBS shows and other syndicated shows, Crockett viewers could get counted as much as five to even seven times). Wrestling may be highly viewed, but in terms of absolute number of individual viewers it’s still small potatoes compared to the real juggernauts, and while they may have some of the highest rated syndicated packages, neither Crockett nor McMahon can claim to have one of the top rated syndicated shows. Crockett got a big boost from the inclusion of the TBS shows, which should boost their ad revenue and help them compete. And that’s reason enough for Dave to expect WWF to try and counter this - it’s important to the way WWF presents itself that there not be any other major league company in wrestling.
  • Sports Illustrated ran a story in this week’s issue on Hiroshi Wajima. Dave hasn’t had the chance to read the story yet, but it’s apparently an old story put together in November 1986, and Dave has no idea why it just came out. Ironically, Tokyo Sports ran a story this week that Wajima was going to retire (though this apparently isn’t true). Anyway, I found the story.
Read: Down from Sumo’s Summit
  • Also in the media this week were the Von Erichs. They were on the 700 Club this week, doing their usual job of mixing truth, minor falsehoods, and major lies. On Monday they took over AWA’s old rerun timeslot on ESPN (4 pm EST) with “Legends of World Class Wrestling” which covers early 80s matches featuring Kevin and Kerry before in the pre-Freebird days of the company. They also curiously seem to have a Ken Mantell match every episode, as well as a trivia contest that’s unintentionally funny. One of the questions asked where and when David Von Erich died, which is almost pushing the exploitation of the family tragedies to the point of parody. Lastly, the latest on the Von Erichs story in Penthouse is that it’s tentatively scheduled for the July issue unless the magazine decides to do a feature on the upcoming Michael Spinks vs. Mike Tyson fight (yeah, they do that feature).
  • The biggest news in WWF is that Bruno Sammartino has left the company. Bruno got an offer to promote a national wrestling hotline that paid more than WWF pays him as a color commentator, and that’s the issue that seems to have served as reason for him leaving. It’s no secret that Bruno has been unhappy with WWF for some time and doesn’t like the company’s direction. And Vince never gave David the push he promised. When Bruno retired back in 1981, he never planned to make a comeback years later; that only happened to help David get his career launched. But once he did get back in the ring, they pressured for more appearances, slotted him in as their pinch hitter for when guys like Duggan, Patera, or Jake Roberts weren’t available due to injury or suspension to main event a show. And this extra work has caused Bruno’s back injuries to be reaggravated, and yet he still completed all bookings through last August before deciding to call it quits for real in the ring. WWF still wanted him on in the northeast, though. The real core of everything, though, is that McMahona nd Sammartino have vastly different ideas, setting aside the usual friction of the promotewrestler relationship, about the credibility of the business and about promotional ethics. McMahon’s way of promoting completely violates Bruno’s sense of credibility for wrestling and ethics. Bruno ought to know a bit about what works promotion-wise, given he’s got a long record of drawing consistent sellouts in places WWF only draws a few thousand fans today.
  • Dave saw the March 5 WWF show at the Cow Palace and runs through the card, giving ratings and making observations. Badnews Brown won his match with an enziguiri (that’s the Ghetto Blaster, though it hasn’t quite been named that yet). Steamboat and Rude had a 20 minute draw that was the best match of the show, and Steamboat is still one of the best for high spots in the country. Sherri carried Rockin’ Robin to a watchable match, though Robin is still obviously quite green. She’s a tremendous heel when they give her a chance, though they don’t often give her the chance. In the main event, Hogan and Duggan beat DiBiase and Virgil. Virgil was in the way too much and Hogan seemed like he might have been sick because he mostyl did rest holds and when on the apron he kept his head down. Hogan is absolutely the biggest draw in the industry right now, but there are a lot of folks who get bigger reactions live, including Carlos Colón, Antonio Inoki, and Chigusa Nagayo. Dave thinks it might be that fans look at Hogan as an entertaineperformer, whereas with Nagao or Colón they live and die by the rhythms of their matches. So when Dave talked back in December about how Hogan gets half the reaction live that Nagayo gets, he was being kind to Hogan. This isn’t to knock Hogan, though - he still gets incredible reactions and is an incredible draw, but there are others beyond him.
  • Dave’s had a chance to watch a lot of tape from Puerto Rico lately, and there’s only one good worker from the area: TNT. That’s the future Savio Vega. The standard match here is slow-paced, though when they bring Abdullah or Brody in you can get some blood to make up for it. The company is very successful, though, so they’re doing what works for their audience, and Dave speculates their audience has the highest percentage of true believers of any in the world. The heat they can generate is ridiculous.
Watch: A match between TNT and Super Black Ninja
  • Iron Sheik has been fired, probably setting a new record in WWF.
  • Adrian Adonis is trying to get back to WWF. No real surprise. Not going to happen before he dies.
  • NBC and WWF have come to a deal for five Saturday Night’s Main Events and one prime time special for the 1988-89 season. The Main Event proved they can be put in a weak time slot with a lot of hype and deliver a solid rating, but they can’t appeal enough to consistently compete in prime time.
  • Memphis has brought Sputnik Monroe in to feud with Billy Wicks on March 7. Dave thought Eddie Marlin feuding with Tommy Gilbert was ridiculous, but this takes the cake. Wicks was a big star in Memphis before Jackie Fargo (so we’re talking the 1950s) and Sputnik Monroe was a legendary heel who refused to work shows with segregated crowds. More on Sputnik Monroe by broken_beat. Anyway, Monroe and Wicks were big deals and their feud in the late 50s was legendary, setting an indoor arena attendance record in Memphis in 1959 that stood until the Monday Night Wars (specifically, In Your House: St. Valentine’s Day Massacre broke the record). According to cagematch, this is a one off and Monroe’s last match ever. This show was not for tv and there’s no video of it anywhere I can find online, but I wish I could put it here.
Watch: Here’s a Sputnik Monroe match from 1966 because I can
  • More guys gone from Memphis. Manny Fernandez was fired for missing shows. The Samoans quit right before they were probably due to win the Southern Tag Team Titles. Bill Dundee has left to go be a babyface in Knoxville (they wrote him off with a Gilbert family attack, so that leaves the door open for him to come back as a face and team with Lawler at least). Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson are also out. And Steve Keirn, who headlined February 29, isn’t back this week. This led to the March 7 card having 15 matches with a lot of guys pulling double duty.
  • Owen Hart injured his back taking a bump on a guard rail during his Japan tour, so he missed two weeks right after getting back to Canada.
  • Billy Jack Haynes was on a local talk show in Oregon and we get a bit of insight into his thinking about his new promotion. He’s only interested in guys who weigh at least 280 lbs and is promising sizeable guaranteed contracts. No indication when he’s going to start it up yet, but he said something to the effect of it being in arund 6 weeks. He also said they’d hold a wrestling camp.
  • Continental is continuing the same bait and switch stuff that killed Birmingham in the first place. Their February 29 show was a double taping, and among the promises not kept were Larry Hamilton no-showing his match with Scott Hall and the two other matches he was supposed to have and both Danny Davis vs. Lord Humongous and Frank Lancaster vs. Detroit Demolition didn’t happen despite all four guys being present.
  • AWA announced on tv this past weekend that Masa Saito would be returning, and he’d be bringing Riki Choshu with him to wrestle the Midnight Rockers. This comes as a surprise to all.
  • AWA has changed March 19 to have Diamond and Tanaka challenging the Rockers for the tag titles. At least they figured out what to do to make it make sense.
  • GLOW’s live card in Houston on February 26 drew 3,500 fans. That’s more than Hogan vs. DiBiase drew last time they were there, and more than Flair vs. Sting did this past weekend at the Houston Coliseum. Verne Gagne was there, and it seems GLOW wrestler Olympia is headed to AWA to be an opponent for Madusa. If Verne wanted someone to look better and wrestle worse than Madusa, he found his woman, Dave says.
  • Adrian Adonis lost his weekly guarantee from AWA back in December. Then he broke his ankle just a week before he was supposed to go to Japan, so he lost out on two weeks of Japan and hasn’t been getting income. He even asked Verne to help while he was injured and Verne told him no. Adonis has had a terrible run of luck lately, and it’s just not going to work out well.
  • New Japan officially announced that Akira Maeda has been fired. So now the question is what is Maeda’s future in wrestling, if any? Obviously someone will have the idea to start a new promotion and make him the star, but they’re gonna need television to get it going, and that could be a tough proposition. We’re on the cusp of Newborn UWF in the next couple weeks.
  • Dump Matsumoto’s retirement was such a big deal that Fuji TV ran a half hour retrospective of her career. Her retirement show took place in her home town on February 28, and she beat Bull Nakano and Condor Saito in a handicap match to send her off. The co-main event was Lioness Asuka going to a time limit draw against Yukari Omori in Omori’s final match. The last tv taping Omori and Dump did took place on February 25, where they went to a draw against the Crush Girls via double countout. Then they requested five more minutes, and the match went to a draw after the request was granted. On that show Bull Nakano and Kumiko Iwamoto won two of three falls to take the vacant tag titles against Mitsuko Nishiwaki and Yumiko Hotta. Dave anticipates a ratings drop now that Matsumoto is out, as she brings a lot of drama and heat to the shows.
  • The big news out of All Japan is that Tokyo Sports ran a front page story on February 23 about Hiroshi Wajima needing to retire due to neck injuries. Wajima insists he’ll be back, and Dave’s not sure the details, but Wajima is 40 years old and Dave’s understanding is he’ll be out for several months at least. At that age “career ending” become very common words with this sort of thing, so…. Yeah. This is pretty much the beginning of the end for Wajima. He’s not going to take time off, and by the end of the year he’ll wrestle his last match.
  • World Class has a bunch of title changes. Kerry Von Erich beat Al Perez for the WCCW Championship on March 6 in Dallas. Small crowd, and it was originally supposed to be Michael Hayes against Perez, but they had Hayes attacked at the concert on March 4, so he was “injured” and couldn’t wrestle. The concert drew much better than the Dallas show, getting roughly 2,000 fans. Terry Taylor won the Texas Title on February 26 from Matt Borne. The Simpsons won the Wild West Tag Titles from Tatum and Victory on February 29 in Fort Worth, gaining a measure of revenge from the week earlier (maybe it aired on the 22nd but was the Feb. 14 show? Cagematch is sketchy on details and I can’t find a match on February 22nd where the titles changed. Possible Dave has some things mixed up) when they lost the Texas Tag Titles to Tatum and Victory. After losing the Texas Tag titles, they came out later that night with the Wild West tag title match contract. February 29 was set up so that Victory and Tatum were meant to defend both sets of titles, The Wild West titles against the Simpsons and the Texas titles against the Fantastics, and they whined that it was unfair. Anyway, Bobby Fulton didn’t show up, so Rogers wound up teaming with someone else and lost the match.
  • WCCW is moving their Texas Stadium show to May 8. Looks like some variation on Freebirds vs. Von Erichs plus one for the top of the card. Talks of Kerry vs. Flair have dropped off.
  • Bill Alfonso, who used to be a referee in Florida and is the brother of David Sierra (who works under a mask as The Assassin in Oregon), will be the man referee in Billy Jack Haynes’ new Oregon promotion. That Oregon civil war in wrestling has brother against brother now.
  • Peter Maivia Jr. (that’s The Rock’s uncle) won the California Championship Wrestling tag title with partner Toru Tanaka on February 26. Just an interesting note from the indies, because I had no idea The Rock’s mom had a wrestling brother.
  • Also in the sons(-in-law) of wrestlers from long ago, Karl Gotch’s son-in-law is Masami Soranaka. He wrestles in Global in Florida as a foreign menace heel, V.C. Minh.
  • Brody’s March 4 show in St. Louis drew 1,200 fans for a gate of $14,000. Brody vs. Jerry Blackwell in the main event had a weird ending, but the match itself was good, if slow-paced. Blackwell threw Brody over the top and the ref missed it due to ref bump, then Brody got back in, took a powerslam, was pinned for a three count, but another referee overruled it citing the initial toss over the top and calling the match a disqualification. Then Brody dropkicked Blackwell and pinned him. When the finish is dusty, everybody wins, right?
  • World Wrestling Council in Puerto Rico has just put out three video tapes. Tape #1 has a bunch of their bloodiest matches. Tape #2 has the September 1986 WWC Universal Title tournament that saw Terry Funk in three matches, including matches against Rick Martel and Barry Windham. Tape #3 is an Invader #1 (fuck Invader #1) highlight tape. One of the matches has the ring surrounded by a cage of fire and now that I know this I wish he had gotten shoved into it.
  • Letters this week are all over the place. The first one is a big one and about Hogan’s limited appeal. How much can a balding sausage man who looks ten years older than he is really appeal in the true mainstream? Can he really make anyone switch away from Dallas or The Cosby Show? Not unless the hypothetical viewer already likes wrestling. But that’s the thing the writer argues: Hogan might not be able to appeal to the mass market, but nobody else really can either because wrestling just isn’t that big and never will be. Hell, setting aside his skill or lack thereof in acting, his size alone is going to limit his options in Hollywood, and those limitations will not help him appeal more broadly either. He’s got strong appeal to a small audience, and that's okay because wrestling is a niche interest. Anyway, the writer eventually concludes her time in this issue after a long detour onto the subject of long storytelling matches by suggesting John Carpenter could have saved a lot of money on fake blood for They Live by hiring Ric Flair instead of Roddy Piper.
  • Dusty Rhodes gave a really weird promo hyping up Clash of the Champions. He told viewers that if they don’t watch the Clash, he’ll remember and come down the chimney at Christmas and beat up their kids. Whatever idea of humor he has, it didn’t really land, and a lot of readers called in to ask Dave if he lost his mind.
  • Hogan and Duggan vs. DiBiase and Virgil on March 6 in LA drew the smallest crowd Hogan has ever drawn in LA. Nothing really good on the show, either, except that main event.
  • More details for the Hayes concert finish on March 4 for WCCW: Hayes was going to sing a Willie Nelson song and invited the Von Erichs on stage because he dedicated the song to David. King Parsons came out and started arguing with Hayes, and Buddy Roberts came out too and got into it with the Von Erichs. Roberts tried to swing a guitar at Kerry’s head, but Kerry ducked and he hit Hayes instead.
Watch: The end of the Michael Hayes concert and the brawl
  • Turns out the Sputnik Monroe vs. Billy Wicks match in Memphis was billed as an “Old Timers Special Attraction” match. That’s fine - they were really hot in the area around 1961, and it’s not like WWF haven’t done similar like their 1985 Fred Blassie vs. Lou Albano match at Nassau Coliseum.

Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 1 of 10 Virginia L. Giuffre, Plaintiff, v.
Ghislaine Maxwell,
Defendant. ________________________________/ Case No.: 15-cv-07433-RWS United States District Court Southern District of New York
PLAINTIFF’S REDACTED MOTION TO COMPEL DEFENDANT TO ANSWER DEPOSITION QUESTIONS FILED UNDER SEAL1 Plaintiff Virginia Giuffre, by and through her undersigned counsel, hereby files this Motion to Compel Defendant to Answer Deposition Questions. During her recent deposition, Defendant refused to answer numerous questions about allegedly “adult” sexual activity related to Jeffrey Epstein. Because this activity is highly relevant to this case, Defendant should be ordered to answer questions about it. As the Court is aware, this defamation case involves Ms. Giuffre’s assertions that she and other females were recruited by Defendant to be sexually abused by Jeffrey Epstein under the guise of being “massage therapists.” See Complaint, (DE 1), at ¶ 27 (Giuffre “described Maxwell’s role as one of the main women who Epstein used to procure under-aged girls for sexual activities and a primary co-conspirator and participant in his sexual abuse and sex trafficking scheme”). In response to these assertions, Defendant has made the sweeping claim that Ms. Giuffre’s assertions are “entirely false” and “entirely untrue.” Complaint, DE 1, at ¶ 31. 1 Defendant has labelled her entire deposition transcript as Confidential at this time. Counsel for the parties conferred at the deposition regarding answering questions. 1
Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 2 of 10 Yet during her deposition, Defendant refused to answer any questions that she construed as having something to do with “consensual adult sex.” Defense counsel supported that position that “frankly, [that’s] none of your business and I instruct the witness not to answer.” See Declaration of Sigrid S. McCawley (“McCawley Decl.”) at Exhibit 1, Tr. of Maxwell Depo. (Apr. 22, 2016) at 21. The result was that at a number of points throughout her deposition, Defendant refused to answer questions about subjects integral to this lawsuit, including questions about what the alleged “massage therapists” were doing at Jeffrey Epstein’s house and the sexual nature of those massages. Epstein a massage: For example, Defendant refused to answer questions about whether she had given Jeffrey Q. Have you ever given Jeffrey Epstein a massage? MR. PAGLIUCA: Object to the form, foundation. And I'm going to instruct you not to answer that question. I don't have any problem with you asking questions about what the subject matter of this lawsuit is, which would be, as you've termed it, sexual trafficking of Ms. Roberts. MS. McCAWLEY: You can instruct her not to answer. That is your right. But I will bring her back for another deposition because it is part of the subject matter of this litigation so she should be answering these questions. This is civil litigation, deposition and she should be responsible for answering these questions. MR. PAGLIUCA: I disagree and you understand the bounds that I put on it. To the extent you are asking for information relating to any consensual adult interaction between my client and Mr. Epstein, I'm going to instruct her not to answer because it's not part of this litigation and it is her private confidential information, not subject to this deposition. MS. McCAWLEY: No, I don't. I will continue to ask my questions and you can continue to make your objections. Q. Did you ever participate from the time period of 1992 to 2009, did you ever participate in a massage with Jeffrey Epstein and another female? MR. PAGLIUCA: Objection. Do not answer that question. Again, to the extent you are asking for some sort of illegal activity as you've construed in 2
Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 3 of 10 connection with this case I don't have any problem with you asking that question. To the extent these questions involve consensual acts between adults, frankly, they're none of your business and I will instruct the witness not to answer. MS. McCAWLEY: This case involves sexual trafficking, sexual abuse, questions about her having interactions with other females is relevant to this case. She needs to answer these questions. MR. PAGLIUCA: I'm instructing her not to answer. MS. McCAWLEY: Then we will be back here again. See McCawley Decl. at Exhibit 2, Tr. of Maxwell Depo. (Apr. 22, 2016) at 19-22 (emphasis added). Defendant’s participation in massages with Epstein is a central part of this case. Ms. Giuffre has explained that during her first sexual encounter with Jeffrey Epstein, it was Defendant who provided instruction on how to do it and how to turn the massage into a sexual event. Obviously, proof that Defendant had previously massaged Epstein – include massages with sexual component – would provide important corroboration for Ms. Giuffre’s testimony at trial. And proof that Defendant was involved in massages will further help prove that statements to the press that Virginia’s allegations were “obvious lies” was itself an obvious lie. Johanna Sjoberg was hired to work for Epstein and provided massages. In the police report, Johanna admitted that Maxwell recruited her to work for Epstein. See McCawley Decl. at Exhibit 3, Giuffre000076-77 (police report indicating that Johanna was recruited by Maxwell). Yet during Defendant’s deposition, she refused to answer questions regarding Johanna Sjoberg. As another example, Defendant refused to answer questions about her knowledge that Q. Do you know what tasks Johanna was hired to performance? A. She was tasked to answer telephones. Q. Did you ever ask her to rub Jeffrey's feet? . . . A. I believe that I have read that, but I don't have any memory of it. 3
Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 4 of 10 Q. Did you ever tell Johanna that she would get extra money if she provided Jeffrey massages? A. I was always happy to give career advice to people and I think that becoming somebody in the healthcare profession, either exercise instructor or nutritionist or professional massage therapist is an excellent job opportunity. Hourly wages are around 7, 8, $9 and as a professional healthcare provider you can earn somewhere between as we have established 100 to $200 and to be able to travel and have a job that pays that is a wonderful job opportunity. So in the context of advising people for opportunities for work, it is possible that I would have said that she should explore that as an option. Q. Did you tell her she would get extra money if she massaged Jeffrey? A. I'm just saying, I cannot recall the exact conversation. I give career advice and I have done that. Q. Did you ever have Johanna massage you? A. I did. Q. How many times? A. I don't recall how many times. Q. Was there sex involved? A. No. . . . Q. Did you ever have sexual contact with Johanna? MR. PAGLIUCA: Object to the form and foundation. You need to give me an opportunity to get in between the questions. Anything that involves consensual sex on your part, I'm instructing you not to answer. Q. Did you ever have sexual contact with Johanna? A. [MR. PAGLIUCA?] Again, she is an adult -- Q. I’m asking you, did you ever have sexual contact with Johanna? A. I’ve just been instructed not to answer. Q. On what basis? A. You have to ask my lawyer. See McCawley Decl. at Exhibit 4, Tr. of Maxwell Depo. (Apr. 22, 2016) at 60-62 (emphasis added). 4
Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 5 of 10 Here again, this information is critical to the case. Among other things, these questions are designed to show a modus operani (“M.O”) for Epstein and Maxwell – specifically, how they recruited for a non-sexual massage than converted the massage into sexual activities. Epstein’s sexual interests during massages: One last illustration comes from Defendant’s refusal to answer about her knowledge of encounters? Q. Does Jeffrey like to have his nipples pinched during sexual MR. PAGLIUCA: Objection to form and foundation. A. I'm not referring to any advice on my counsel. I'm not talking about any adult sexual things when I was with him. Q. When Jeffrey would have a massage, would he request that the masseuse pinch his nipples while he was having a massage? A. I'm not talking about anything with consensual adult situation. See McCawley Decl. at Exhibit 5, Tr. of Maxwell Depo. (Apr. 22, 2016) at 82. that he will assert his Fifth Amendment privilege regarding his sexual activities. Accordingly, Ms. Giuffre must pursue questioning of Maxwell to obtain information on this subject. Here again, information about Epstein’s sexual idiosyncrasies will provide important corroboration to Ms. Giuffre’s testimony that she had sexual interactions of an identical nature with Epstein. occurred repeatedly throughout the deposition. See, e.g., McCawley Decl. at Composite Exhibit 6. 52-55; 64-65; 82; 92-93; 137-38; 307-09. The Court should compel Defendant to answer all these questions. In addition to the specific points made above, the “big picture” here reveals how vital such discovery is. At the core of Ms. Giuffre’s allegations is the allegation that Defendant lured her into a sexual situation While Epstein himself might also provide answers to these questions, it appears likely These refusals are not an isolated instance. Instead, similar refusals to answer questions with the offer of a job making money as a massage therapist; that Epstein always habitually t ried 5
Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 6 of 10 to turn massages into sex (that was his modus operandi and plan all along); and that Maxwell recruited other females for an ostensibly proper position, such as therapeutic masseuse, with knowledge that the intent was for that person would be pressured to provide sexual gratification to Epstein. As a result, Epstein’s use of massages for sexual purposes is a central part of this case. And Defendant’s role in those massages – and knowledge of the purposes of those massages – is a critical piece of evidence showing her state of mind when she attacked Ms. Giuffre’s assertions as “entirely untrue.” Ms. Giuffre intends to prove at trial that Defendant knew full well the sexual purpose for which she was recruiting females – including underage females like Ms. Giuffre. Ms. Giuffre is entitled to explore Defendant’s knowledge of the sexual activities that took place under the guise of “massages.” Otherwise Defendant will be able to portray to the jury an inaccurate picture of that what was happening at Epstein’s house what nothing more than run-of-the-mill massage therapy. See, e.g., McCawley Decl. at Exhibit 7, Tr. of Maxwell Depo. (Apr. 22, 2016) at 51 (“Q: Did [the pay for massage therapists] vary on what sexual acts they performed? . . . A: No, it varied depending on how much time, some massage therapists charge more and some charge less.”). Defendant’s refusal to answer questions about alleged “adult” consensual sex also blocks Ms. Giuffre from seeking legitimate discovery in this case. By refusing to answer questions about her and Epstein’s sexual activities with alleged “adults,” Defendant is essentially given the ability to refuse to answer any sexual question she does not wish to answer. Defendant simply has to deem the question as involving “consensual adult sex” and no need be given. The result is to leave Ms. Giuffre with no way of exploring the identity of these alleged adults, the ages of these alleged adults, and indeed whether they were adults at all. This allows Defendant to claim 6
Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 7 of 10 that she is unaware of any sexual activity involving underage females, because (she claims) the only sexual activity she was aware involved adults. The Court should compel Ms. Maxwell to answer all questions about her knowledge relating to sexual activities with Epstein and other females while at Epstein’s various homes. See Fed. R. Crim. P. 37(a)(3)(B)(i); see, e.g., Kelly v. A1 Tech., No. 09 CIV. 962 LAK MHD, 2010 WL 1541585, at *20 (S.D.N.Y.

The court must determine the propriety of the deponent's objection to answering the questions, and can order the deponent to provide improperly withheld answers during a continued deposition” (internal citations omitted)). Of course, the party objecting to discovery must carry the burden of proving the validity of its objections, particularly in light of “the broad and liberal construction afforded the federal discovery rules . . . .” John Wiley & Sons, Inc. v. Book Dog Books, LLC, 298 F.R.D. 184, 186 (S.D.N.Y. 2014). For purposes of a deposition, the information sought “need not be admissible at the trial if the discovery appears reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence.” Chen-Oster v. Goldman, Sachs & Co., 293 F.R.D. 557, 561 (S.D.N.Y. 2013) (citing Fed.R.Civ.P. 26(b)(1)). Defendant cannot carry her burden of showing that the questions asked are not reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence. This is a case in which sexual activities lie at the heart of the issues in dispute. As a result, it is hardly surprising to find that discovery pertains to alleged “adult” sexual activities – and questions about such subjects are entirely proper. See, e.g., Condit v. Dunne, 225 F.R.D. 100, 113 (S.D.N.Y. 2004) (in defamation case, “Plaintiff is hereby ordered to answer questions regarding his sexual relationships in so far 7

That was improper and the Court should order a resumption of the Defendant’s deposition so that she can answer questions about her knowledge of sexual activity relating to Jeffrey Epstein.

Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 1 of 10 Virginia L. Giuffre, Plaintiff, v. Ghislaine Maxwell, Defendant. ________________________________/ Case No.: 15-cv-07433-RWS United States District Court Southern District of New York PLAINTIFF’S REDACTED MOTION TO COMPEL DEFENDANT TO ANSWER DEPOSITION QUESTIONS FILED UNDER SEAL1 Plaintiff Virginia Giuffre, by and through her undersigned counsel, hereby files this Motion to Compel Defendant to Answer Deposition Questions. During her recent deposition, Defendant refused to answer numerous questions about allegedly “adult” sexual activity related to Jeffrey Epstein. Because this activity is highly relevant to this case, Defendant should be ordered to answer questions about it. As the Court is aware, this defamation case involves Ms. Giuffre’s assertions that she and other females were recruited by Defendant to be sexually abused by Jeffrey Epstein under the guise of being “massage therapists.” See Complaint, (DE 1), at ¶ 27 (Giuffre “described Maxwell’s role as one of the main women who Epstein used to procure under-aged girls for sexual activities and a primary co-conspirator and participant in his sexual abuse and sex trafficking scheme”). In response to these assertions, Defendant has made the sweeping claim that Ms. Giuffre’s assertions are “entirely false” and “entirely untrue.” Complaint, DE 1, at ¶ 31. 1 Defendant has labelled her entire deposition transcript as Confidential at this time. Counsel for the parties conferred at the deposition regarding answering questions. 1
Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 2 of 10 Yet during her deposition, Defendant refused to answer any questions that she construed as having something to do with “consensual adult sex.” Defense counsel supported that position that “frankly, [that’s] none of your business and I instruct the witness not to answer.” See Declaration of Sigrid S. McCawley (“McCawley Decl.”) at Exhibit 1, Tr. of Maxwell Depo. (Apr. 22, 2016) at 21. The result was that at a number of points throughout her deposition, Defendant refused to answer questions about subjects integral to this lawsuit, including questions about what the alleged “massage therapists” were doing at Jeffrey Epstein’s house and the sexual nature of those massages. Epstein a massage: For example, Defendant refused to answer questions about whether she had given Jeffrey Q. Have you ever given Jeffrey Epstein a massage? MR. PAGLIUCA: Object to the form, foundation. And I'm going to instruct you not to answer that question. I don't have any problem with you asking questions about what the subject matter of this lawsuit is, which would be, as you've termed it, sexual trafficking of Ms. Roberts. MS. McCAWLEY: You can instruct her not to answer. That is your right. But I will bring her back for another deposition because it is part of the subject matter of this litigation so she should be answering these questions. This is civil litigation, deposition and she should be responsible for answering these questions. MR. PAGLIUCA: I disagree and you understand the bounds that I put on it. To the extent you are asking for information relating to any consensual adult interaction between my client and Mr. Epstein, I'm going to instruct her not to answer because it's not part of this litigation and it is her private confidential information, not subject to this deposition. MS. McCAWLEY: No, I don't. I will continue to ask my questions and you can continue to make your objections. Q. Did you ever participate from the time period of 1992 to 2009, did you ever participate in a massage with Jeffrey Epstein and another female? MR. PAGLIUCA: Objection. Do not answer that question. Again, to the extent you are asking for some sort of illegal activity as you've construed in 2
Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 3 of 10 connection with this case I don't have any problem with you asking that question. To the extent these questions involve consensual acts between adults, frankly, they're none of your business and I will instruct the witness not to answer. MS. McCAWLEY: This case involves sexual trafficking, sexual abuse, questions about her having interactions with other females is relevant to this case. She needs to answer these questions. MR. PAGLIUCA: I'm instructing her not to answer. MS. McCAWLEY: Then we will be back here again. See McCawley Decl. at Exhibit 2, Tr. of Maxwell Depo. (Apr. 22, 2016) at 19-22 (emphasis added). Defendant’s participation in massages with Epstein is a central part of this case. Ms. Giuffre has explained that during her first sexual encounter with Jeffrey Epstein, it was Defendant who provided instruction on how to do it and how to turn the massage into a sexual event. Obviously, proof that Defendant had previously massaged Epstein – include massages with sexual component – would provide important corroboration for Ms. Giuffre’s testimony at trial. And proof that Defendant was involved in massages will further help prove that statements to the press that Virginia’s allegations were “obvious lies” was itself an obvious lie. Johanna Sjoberg was hired to work for Epstein and provided massages. In the police report, Johanna admitted that Maxwell recruited her to work for Epstein. See McCawley Decl. at Exhibit 3, Giuffre000076-77 (police report indicating that Johanna was recruited by Maxwell). Yet during Defendant’s deposition, she refused to answer questions regarding Johanna Sjoberg. As another example, Defendant refused to answer questions about her knowledge that Q. Do you know what tasks Johanna was hired to performance? A. She was tasked to answer telephones. Q. Did you ever ask her to rub Jeffrey's feet? . . . A. I believe that I have read that, but I don't have any memory of it. 3
Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 4 of 10 Q. Did you ever tell Johanna that she would get extra money if she provided Jeffrey massages? A. I was always happy to give career advice to people and I think that becoming somebody in the healthcare profession, either exercise instructor or nutritionist or professional massage therapist is an excellent job opportunity. Hourly wages are around 7, 8, $9 and as a professional healthcare provider you can earn somewhere between as we have established 100 to $200 and to be able to travel and have a job that pays that is a wonderful job opportunity. So in the context of advising people for opportunities for work, it is possible that I would have said that she should explore that as an option. Q. Did you tell her she would get extra money if she massaged Jeffrey? A. I'm just saying, I cannot recall the exact conversation. I give career advice and I have done that. Q. Did you ever have Johanna massage you? A. I did. Q. How many times? A. I don't recall how many times. Q. Was there sex involved? A. No. . . . Q. Did you ever have sexual contact with Johanna? MR. PAGLIUCA: Object to the form and foundation. You need to give me an opportunity to get in between the questions. Anything that involves consensual sex on your part, I'm instructing you not to answer. Q. Did you ever have sexual contact with Johanna? A. [MR. PAGLIUCA?] Again, she is an adult -- Q. I’m asking you, did you ever have sexual contact with Johanna? A. I’ve just been instructed not to answer. Q. On what basis? A. You have to ask my lawyer. See McCawley Decl. at Exhibit 4, Tr. of Maxwell Depo. (Apr. 22, 2016) at 60-62 (emphasis added). 4
Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 5 of 10 Here again, this information is critical to the case. Among other things, these questions are designed to show a modus operani (“M.O”) for Epstein and Maxwell – specifically, how they recruited for a non-sexual massage than converted the massage into sexual activities. Epstein’s sexual interests during massages: One last illustration comes from Defendant’s refusal to answer about her knowledge of encounters? Q. Does Jeffrey like to have his nipples pinched during sexual MR. PAGLIUCA: Objection to form and foundation. A. I'm not referring to any advice on my counsel. I'm not talking about any adult sexual things when I was with him. Q. When Jeffrey would have a massage, would he request that the masseuse pinch his nipples while he was having a massage? A. I'm not talking about anything with consensual adult situation. See McCawley Decl. at Exhibit 5, Tr. of Maxwell Depo. (Apr. 22, 2016) at 82. that he will assert his Fifth Amendment privilege regarding his sexual activities. Accordingly, Ms. Giuffre must pursue questioning of Maxwell to obtain information on this subject. Here again, information about Epstein’s sexual idiosyncrasies will provide important corroboration to Ms. Giuffre’s testimony that she had sexual interactions of an identical nature with Epstein. occurred repeatedly throughout the deposition. See, e.g., McCawley Decl. at Composite Exhibit 6. 52-55; 64-65; 82; 92-93; 137-38; 307-09. The Court should compel Defendant to answer all these questions. In addition to the specific points made above, the “big picture” here reveals how vital such discovery is. At the core of Ms. Giuffre’s allegations is the allegation that Defendant lured her into a sexual situation While Epstein himself might also provide answers to these questions, it appears likely These refusals are not an isolated instance. Instead, similar refusals to answer questions with the offer of a job making money as a massage therapist; that Epstein always habitually t ried 5
Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 6 of 10 to turn massages into sex (that was his modus operandi and plan all along); and that Maxwell recruited other females for an ostensibly proper position, such as therapeutic masseuse, with knowledge that the intent was for that person would be pressured to provide sexual gratification to Epstein. As a result, Epstein’s use of massages for sexual purposes is a central part of this case. And Defendant’s role in those massages – and knowledge of the purposes of those massages – is a critical piece of evidence showing her state of mind when she attacked Ms. Giuffre’s assertions as “entirely untrue.” Ms. Giuffre intends to prove at trial that Defendant knew full well the sexual purpose for which she was recruiting females – including underage females like Ms. Giuffre. Ms. Giuffre is entitled to explore Defendant’s knowledge of the sexual activities that took place under the guise of “massages.” Otherwise Defendant will be able to portray to the jury an inaccurate picture of that what was happening at Epstein’s house what nothing more than run-of-the-mill massage therapy. See, e.g., McCawley Decl. at Exhibit 7, Tr. of Maxwell Depo. (Apr. 22, 2016) at 51 (“Q: Did [the pay for massage therapists] vary on what sexual acts they performed? . . . A: No, it varied depending on how much time, some massage therapists charge more and some charge less.”). Defendant’s refusal to answer questions about alleged “adult” consensual sex also blocks Ms. Giuffre from seeking legitimate discovery in this case. By refusing to answer questions about her and Epstein’s sexual activities with alleged “adults,” Defendant is essentially given the ability to refuse to answer any sexual question she does not wish to answer. Defendant simply has to deem the question as involving “consensual adult sex” and no need be given. The result is to leave Ms. Giuffre with no way of exploring the identity of these alleged adults, the ages of these alleged adults, and indeed whether they were adults at all. This allows Defendant to claim 6
Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 7 of 10 that she is unaware of any sexual activity involving underage females, because (she claims) the only sexual activity she was aware involved adults. The Court should compel Ms. Maxwell to answer all questions about her knowledge relating to sexual activities with Epstein and other females while at Epstein’s various homes. See Fed. R. Crim. P. 37(a)(3)(B)(i); see, e.g., Kelly v. A1 Tech., No. 09 CIV. 962 LAK MHD, 2010 WL 1541585, at *20 (S.D.N.Y.

The court must determine the propriety of the deponent's objection to answering the questions, and can order the deponent to provide improperly withheld answers during a continued deposition” (internal citations omitted)). Of course, the party objecting to discovery must carry the burden of proving the validity of its objections, particularly in light of “the broad and liberal construction afforded the federal discovery rules . . . .” John Wiley & Sons, Inc. v.

v.
Ghislaine Maxwell,
Defendant. ________________________________/
PLAINTIFF’S REDACTED MOTION TO COMPEL DEFENDANT TO ANSWER DEPOSITION QUESTIONS [BEGIN REDACTIONS] FILED UNDER SEAL 1
Plaintiff Virginia Giuffre, by and through her undersigned counsel, hereby files this Motion to Compel Defendant to Answer Deposition Questions.
During her recent deposition, Defendant refused to answer numerous questions about allegedly “adult” sexual activity related to Jeffrey Epstein. Because this activity is highly relevant to this case, Defendant should be ordered to answer questions about it.
As the Court is aware, this defamation case involves Ms. Giuffre’s assertions that she and other females were recruited by Defendant to be sexually abused by Jeffrey Epstein under the guise of being “massage therapists.” See Complaint, (DE 1), at ¶ 27 (Giuffre “described Maxwell’s role as one of the main women who Epstein used to procure under-aged girls for sexual activities and a primary co-conspirator and participant in his sexual abuse and sex trafficking scheme”). In response to these assertions, Defendant has made the sweeping claim that Ms. Giuffre’s assertions are “entirely false” and “entirely untrue.” Complaint, DE 1, at ¶ 31.
[NOT REDACTED]:1 Defendant has labelled her entire deposition transcript as Confidential at this time. Counsel for the parties conferred at the deposition regarding answering questions.

Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 2 of 10
[REDACTION CONTINUES]
Yet during her deposition, Defendant refused to answer any questions that she construed as having something to do with “consensual adult sex.” Defense counsel supported that position that “frankly, [that’s] none of your business and I instruct the witness not to answer.” See Declaration of Sigrid S. McCawley (“McCawley Decl.”) at Exhibit 1, Tr. of Maxwell Depo. (Apr. 22, 2016) at 21. The result was that at a number of points throughout her deposition, Defendant refused to answer questions about subjects integral to this lawsuit, including questions about what the alleged “massage therapists” were doing at Jeffrey Epstein’s house and the sexual nature of those massages.
For example, Defendant refused to answer questions about whether she had given Jeffrey Epstein a massage:
Q. Have you ever given Jeffrey Epstein a massage?
MR. PAGLIUCA: Object to the form, foundation. And I'm going to instruct you not to answer that question. I don't have any problem with you asking questions about what the subject matter of this lawsuit is, which would be, as you've termed it, sexual trafficking of Ms. Roberts.
To the extent you are asking for information relating to any consensual adult interaction between my client and Mr. Epstein, I'm going to instruct her not to answer because it's not part of this litigation and it is her private confidential information, not subject to this deposition.
MS. McCAWLEY: You can instruct her not to answer. That is your right. But I will bring her back for another deposition because it is part of the subject matter of this litigation so she should be answering these questions. This is civil litigation, deposition and she should be responsible for answering these questions.
MR. PAGLIUCA: I disagree and you understand the bounds that I put on it.
MS. McCAWLEY: No, I don't. I will continue to ask my questions and you can continue to make your objections.
Q. Did you ever participate from the time period of 1992 to 2009, did you ever participate in a massage with Jeffrey Epstein and another female?
MR. PAGLIUCA: Objection. Do not answer that question. Again, to the extent you are asking for some sort of illegal activity as you've construed in
[Page 2]
Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 3 of 10
connection with this case I don't have any problem with you asking that question. To the extent these questions involve consensual acts between adults, frankly, they're none of your business and I will instruct the witness not to answer.
MS. McCAWLEY: This case involves sexual trafficking, sexual abuse, questions about her having interactions with other females is relevant to this case. She needs to answer these questions.
MR. PAGLIUCA: I'm instructing her not to answer.
MS. McCAWLEY: Then we will be back here again.
See McCawley Decl. at Exhibit 2, Tr. of Maxwell Depo. (Apr. 22, 2016) at 19-22 (emphasis added).
Defendant’s participation in massages with Epstein is a central part of this case. Ms. Giuffre has explained that during her first sexual encounter with Jeffrey Epstein, it was Defendant who provided instruction on how to do it and how to turn the massage into a sexual event. Obviously, proof that Defendant had previously massaged Epstein – include massages with sexual component – would provide important corroboration for Ms. Giuffre’s testimony at trial. And proof that Defendant was involved in massages will further help prove that statements to the press that Virginia’s allegations were “obvious lies” was itself an obvious lie.
As another example, Defendant refused to answer questions about her knowledge that Johanna Sjoberg was hired to work for Epstein and provided massages. In the police report, Johanna admitted that Maxwell recruited her to work for Epstein. See McCawley Decl. at Exhibit 3, Giuffre000076-77 (police report indicating that Johanna was recruited by Maxwell). Yet during Defendant’s deposition, she refused to answer questions regarding Johanna Sjoberg.
Q. Do you know what tasks Johanna was hired to performance?
A. She was tasked to answer telephones.
Q. Did you ever ask her to rub Jeffrey's feet? . . .
A. I believe that I have read that, but I don't have any memory of it.
[Page 3]
Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 4 of 10
Q. Did you ever tell Johanna that she would get extra money if she provided Jeffrey massages?
A. I was always happy to give career advice to people and I think that becoming somebody in the healthcare profession, either exercise instructor or nutritionist or professional massage therapist is an excellent job opportunity. Hourly wages are around 7, 8, $9 and as a professional healthcare provider you can earn somewhere between as we have established 100 to $200 and to be able to travel and have a job that pays that is a wonderful job opportunity. So in the context of advising people for opportunities for work, it is possible that I would have said that she should explore that as an option.
Q. Did you tell her she would get extra money if she massaged Jeffrey?
A. I'm just saying, I cannot recall the exact conversation. I give career advice and I have done that.
Q. Did you ever have Johanna massage you?
A. I did.
Q. How many times?
A. I don't recall how many times.
Q. Was there sex involved?
A. No. . . .
Q. Did you ever have sexual contact with Johanna?
MR. PAGLIUCA: Object to the form and foundation. You need to give me an opportunity to get in between the questions. Anything that involves consensual sex on your part, I'm instructing you not to answer.
Q. Did you ever have sexual contact with Johanna?
A. [MR. PAGLIUCA?] Again, she is an adult --
Q. I’m asking you, did you ever have sexual contact with Johanna?
A. I’ve just been instructed not to answer.
Q. On what basis?
A. You have to ask my lawyer.
See McCawley Decl. at Exhibit 4, Tr. of Maxwell Depo. (Apr. 22, 2016) at 60-62 (emphasis added).
[Page 4]
Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 5 of 10
Here again, this information is critical to the case. Among other things, these questions are designed to show a modus operani (“M.O”) for Epstein and Maxwell – specifically, how they recruited for a non-sexual massage than converted the massage into sexual activities.
One last illustration comes from Defendant’s refusal to answer about her knowledge of Epstein’s sexual interests during massages:
Q. Does Jeffrey like to have his nipples pinched during sexual encounters?
MR. PAGLIUCA: Objection to form and foundation.
A. I'm not referring to any advice on my counsel. I'm not talking about any adult sexual things when I was with him.
Q. When Jeffrey would have a massage, would he request that the masseuse pinch his nipples while he was having a massage?
A. I'm not talking about anything with consensual adult situation.
See McCawley Decl. at Exhibit 5, Tr. of Maxwell Depo. (Apr. 22, 2016) at 82.
While Epstein himself might also provide answers to these questions, it appears likely that he will assert his Fifth Amendment privilege regarding his sexual activities. Accordingly, Ms. Giuffre must pursue questioning of Maxwell to obtain information on this subject. Here again, information about Epstein’s sexual idiosyncrasies will provide important corroboration to Ms. Giuffre’s testimony that she had sexual interactions of an identical nature with Epstein.
These refusals are not an isolated instance. Instead, similar refusals to answer questions occurred repeatedly throughout the deposition. See, e.g., McCawley Decl. at Composite Exhibit 6. 52-55; 64-65; 82; 92-93; 137-38; 307-09.
The Court should compel Defendant to answer all these questions. In addition to the specific points made above, the “big picture” here reveals how vital such discovery is. At the core of Ms. Giuffre’s allegations is the allegation that Defendant lured her into a sexual situation with the offer of a job making money as a massage therapist; that Epstein always habitually tried
[Page 5]
Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 6 of 10
to turn massages into sex (that was his modus operandi and plan all along); and that Maxwell recruited other females for an ostensibly proper position, such as therapeutic masseuse, with knowledge that the intent was for that person would be pressured to provide sexual gratification to Epstein. As a result, Epstein’s use of massages for sexual purposes is a central part of this case.
And Defendant’s role in those massages – and knowledge of the purposes of those massages – is a critical piece of evidence showing her state of mind when she attacked Ms. Giuffre’s assertions as “entirely untrue.” Ms. Giuffre intends to prove at trial that Defendant knew full well the sexual purpose for which she was recruiting females – including underage females like Ms. Giuffre. Ms. Giuffre is entitled to explore Defendant’s knowledge of the sexual activities that took place under the guise of “massages.” otherwise Defendant will be able to portray to the jury an inaccurate picture of that what was happening at Epstein’s house what nothing more than run-of-the-mill massage therapy. See, e.g., McCawley Decl. at Exhibit 7, Tr. of Maxwell Depo. (Apr. 22, 2016) at 51 (“Q: Did [the pay for massage therapists] vary on what sexual acts they performed? . . . A: No, it varied depending on how much time, some massage therapists charge more and some charge less.”).
Defendant’s refusal to answer questions about alleged “adult” consensual sex also blocks Ms. Giuffre from seeking legitimate discovery in this case. By refusing to answer questions about her and Epstein’s sexual activities with alleged “adults,” Defendant is essentially given the ability to refuse to answer any sexual question she does not wish to answer. Defendant simply has to deem the question as involving “consensual adult sex” and no need be given. The result is to leave Ms. Giuffre with no way of exploring the identity of these alleged adults, the ages of these alleged adults, and indeed whether they were adults at all. This allows Defendant to claim
[Page 6]
Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 7 of 10
that she is unaware of any sexual activity involving underage females, because (she claims) the only sexual activity she was aware involved adults.
The Court should compel Ms. Maxwell to answer all questions about her knowledge relating to sexual activities with Epstein and other females while at Epstein’s various homes. See Fed. R. Crim. P. 37(a)(3)(B)(i); see, e.g., Kelly v. A1 Tech., No. 09 CIV. 962 LAK MHD, 2010 WL 1541585, at *20 (S.D.N.Y. Apr. 12, 2010) (“Under the Federal Rules, when a party refuses to answer a question during a deposition, the questioning party may subsequently move to compel disclosure of the testimony that it sought. The court must determine the propriety of the deponent's objection to answering the questions, and can order the deponent to provide improperly withheld answers during a continued deposition” (internal citations omitted)). Of course, the party objecting to discovery must carry the burden of proving the validity of its objections, particularly in light of “the broad and liberal construction afforded the federal discovery rules . . . .” John Wiley & Sons, Inc. v. Book Dog Books, LLC, 298 F.R.D. 184, 186 (S.D.N.Y. 2014). For purposes of a deposition, the information sought “need not be admissible at the trial if the discovery appears reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence.” Chen-Oster v. Goldman, Sachs & Co., 293 F.R.D. 557, 561 (S.D.N.Y. 2013) (citing Fed.R.Civ.P. 26(b)(1)).
Defendant cannot carry her burden of showing that the questions asked are not reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence. This is a case in which sexual activities lie at the heart of the issues in dispute. As a result, it is hardly surprising to find that discovery pertains to alleged “adult” sexual activities – and questions about such subjects are entirely proper. See, e.g., Condit v. Dunne, 225 F.R.D. 100, 113 (S.D.N.Y. 2004) (in defamation case, “Plaintiff is hereby ordered to answer questions regarding his sexual relationships in so far
[Page 7]
Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 8 of 10
as they are relevant to a defense of substantial truth, mitigation of damages, or impeachment of plaintiff.”); Weber v. Multimedia Entm't, Inc., No. 97 CIV. 0682 PKL THK, 1997 WL 729039, at *3 (S.D.N.Y. Nov. 24, 1997) (“While discovery is not unlimited and may not unnecessarily intrude into private matters, in the instant case inquiry into private matters is clearly relevant to the subject matter of the suit. Accordingly, plaintiff Misty Weber shall respond to defendants' interrogatories concerning her sexual partners . . . .”).
Generally speaking, instructions from attorneys to their clients not to answer questions at a deposition should be “limited to [issues regarding] privilege.” Morales v. Zondo, Inc., 204 F.R.D. 50, 54 (S.D.N.Y. 2001). In this case, defense counsel ranged far beyond the normal parameters of objections and sought to decide for himself what issues were relevant. That was improper and the Court should order a resumption of the Defendant’s deposition so that she can answer questions about her knowledge of sexual activity relating to Jeffrey Epstein.
[REDACTIONS END] CONCLUSION
Defendant should be ordered to sit for a follow-up [REDACTIONS RESUME] deposition and directed to answer questions regarding her knowledge of alleged “adult” sexual activity.

ARCHIVED AT: https://archive.is/wip/TrhOB
United States District Court Southern District of New York Virginia L. Giuffre, Plaintiff, Case No.: 15-cv-07433-RWS v. Ghislaine Maxwell, Defendant. ________________________________/ PLAINTIFF’S REDACTED MOTION TO COMPEL DEFENDANT TO ANSWER DEPOSITION QUESTIONS FILED UNDER SEAL1 Plaintiff Virginia Giuffre, by and through her undersigned counsel, hereby files this Motion to Compel Defendant to Answer Deposition Questions. During her recent deposition, Defendant refused to answer numerous questions about allegedly “adult” sexual activity related to Jeffrey Epstein. Because this activity is highly relevant to this case, Defendant should be ordered to answer questions about it. As the Court is aware, this defamation case involves Ms. Giuffre’s assertions that she and other females were recruited by Defendant to be sexually abused by Jeffrey Epstein under the guise of being “massage therapists.” See Complaint, (DE 1), at ¶ 27 (Giuffre “described Maxwell’s role as one of the main women who Epstein used to procure under-aged girls for sexual activities and a primary co-conspirator and participant in his sexual abuse and sex trafficking scheme”). In response to these assertions, Defendant has made the sweeping claim that Ms. Giuffre’s assertions are “entirely false” and “entirely untrue.” Complaint, DE 1, at ¶ 31.
1 Defendant has labelled her entire deposition transcript as Confidential at this time. Counsel for the parties conferred at the deposition regarding answering questions.
PAGE 1
Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 2 of 10
Yet during her deposition, Defendant refused to answer any questions that she construed as having something to do with “consensual adult sex.” Defense counsel supported that position that “frankly, [that’s] none of your business and I instruct the witness not to answer.” See Declaration of Sigrid S. McCawley (“McCawley Decl.”) at Exhibit 1, Tr. of Maxwell Depo. (Apr. 22, 2016) at 21. The result was that at a number of points throughout her deposition, Defendant refused to answer questions about subjects integral to this lawsuit, including questions about what the alleged “massage therapists” were doing at Jeffrey Epstein’s house and the sexual nature of those massages. For example, Defendant refused to answer questions about whether she had given Jeffrey Epstein a massage: Q. Have you ever given Jeffrey Epstein a massage? MR. PAGLIUCA: Object to the form, foundation. And I'm going to instruct you not to answer that question. I don't have any problem with you asking questions about what the subject matter of this lawsuit is, which would be, as you've termed it, sexual trafficking of Ms. Roberts. To the extent you are asking for information relating to any consensual adult interaction between my client and Mr. Epstein, I'm going to instruct her not to answer because it's not part of this litigation and it is her private confidential information, not subject to this deposition. MS. McCAWLEY: You can instruct her not to answer. That is your right. But I will bring her back for another deposition because it is part of the subject matter of this litigation so she should be answering these questions. This is civil litigation, deposition and she should be responsible for answering these questions. MR. PAGLIUCA: I disagree and you understand the bounds that I put on it. MS. McCAWLEY: No, I don't. I will continue to ask my questions and you can continue to make your objections. Q. Did you ever participate from the time period of 1992 to 2009, did you ever participate in a massage with Jeffrey Epstein and another female? MR. PAGLIUCA: Objection. Do not answer that question. Again, to the extent you are asking for some sort of illegal activity as you've construed in
Page 2
Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 3 of 10
connection with this case I don't have any problem with you asking that question. To the extent these questions involve consensual acts between adults, frankly, they're none of your business and I will instruct the witness not to answer. MS. McCAWLEY: This case involves sexual trafficking, sexual abuse, questions about her having interactions with other females is relevant to this case. She needs to answer these questions. MR. PAGLIUCA: I'm instructing her not to answer. MS. McCAWLEY: Then we will be back here again. See McCawley Decl. at Exhibit 2, Tr. of Maxwell Depo. (Apr. 22, 2016) at 19-22 (emphasis added). Defendant’s participation in massages with Epstein is a central part of this case. Ms. Giuffre has explained that during her first sexual encounter with Jeffrey Epstein, it was Defendant who provided instruction on how to do it and how to turn the massage into a sexual event. Obviously, proof that Defendant had previously massaged Epstein – include massages with sexual component – would provide important corroboration for Ms. Giuffre’s testimony at trial. And proof that Defendant was involved in massages will further help prove that statements to the press that Virginia’s allegations were “obvious lies” was itself an obvious lie. As another example, Defendant refused to answer questions about her knowledge that Johanna Sjoberg was hired to work for Epstein and provided massages. In the police report, Johanna admitted that Maxwell recruited her to work for Epstein. See McCawley Decl. at Exhibit 3, Giuffre000076-77 (police report indicating that Johanna was recruited by Maxwell). Yet during Defendant’s deposition, she refused to answer questions regarding Johanna Sjoberg. Q. Do you know what tasks Johanna was hired to performance? A. She was tasked to answer telephones. Q. Did you ever ask her to rub Jeffrey's feet? . . . A. I believe that I have read that, but I don't have any memory of it.
Page 3
Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 4 of 10
ded Jeffrey massages? A. I was always happy to give career advice to people and I think that becoming somebody in the healthcare profession, either exercise instructor or nutritionist or professional massage therapist is an excellent job opportunity. Hourly wages are around 7, 8, $9 and as a professional healthcare provider you can earn somewhere between as we have established 100 to $200 and to be able to travel and have a job that pays that is a wonderful job opportunity. So in the context of advising people for opportunities for work, it is possible that I would have said that she should explore that as an option. Q. Did you tell her she would get extra money if she massaged Jeffrey? A. I'm just saying, I cannot recall the exact conversation. I give career advice and I have done that. Q. Did you ever have Johanna massage you? A. I did. Q. How many times? A. I don't recall how many times. Q. Was there sex involved? A. No. . . . Q. Did you ever have sexual contact with Johanna? MR. PAGLIUCA: Object to the form and foundation. You need to give me an opportunity to get in between the questions. Anything that involves consensual sex on your part, I'm instructing you not to answer. Q. Did you ever have sexual contact with Johanna? A. [MR. PAGLIUCA?] Again, she is an adult -- Q. I’m asking you, did you ever have sexual contact with Johanna? A. I’ve just been instructed not to answer. Q. On what basis? A. You have to ask my lawyer. See McCawley Decl. at Exhibit 4, Tr. of Maxwell Depo. (Apr. 22, 2016) at 60-62 (emphasis added).

Case 1:15-cv-07433-LAP Document 143 Filed 05/05/16 Page 5 of 10
Here again, this information is critical to the case. Among other things, these questions are designed to show a modus operani (“M.O”) for Epstein and Maxwell – specifically, how they recruited for a non-sexual massage than converted the massage into sexual activities. One last illustration comes from Defendant’s refusal to answer about her knowledge of Epstein’s sexual interests during massages: Q. Does Jeffrey like to have his nipples pinched during sexual encounters? MR. PAGLIUCA: Objection to form and foundation. A. I'm not referring to any advice on my counsel. I'm not talking about any adult sexual things when I was with him. Q. When Jeffrey would have a massage, would he request that the masseuse pinch his nipples while he was having a massage? A. I'm not talking about anything with consensual adult situation. See McCawley Decl. at Exhibit 5, Tr. of Maxwell Depo. (Apr. 22, 2016) at 82. While Epstein himself might also provide answers to these questions, it appears likely that he will assert his Fifth Amendment privilege regarding his sexual activities. Accordingly, Ms. Giuffre must pursue questioning of Maxwell to obtain information on this subject. Here again, information about Epstein’s sexual idiosyncrasies will provide important corroboration to Ms. Giuffre’s testimony that she had sexual interactions of an identical nature with Epstein. These refusals are not an isolated instance. Instead, similar refusals to answer questions occurred repeatedly throughout the deposition. See, e.g., McCawley Decl. at Composite Exhibit 6. 52-55; 64-65; 82; 92-93; 137-38; 307-09. The Court should compel Defendant to answer all these questions. In addition to the specific points made above, the “big picture” here reveals how vital such discovery is. At the core of Ms. Giuffre’s allegations is the allegation that Defendant lured her into a sexual situation with the offer of a job making money as a massage therapist; that Epstein always habitually tried

to turn massages into sex (that was his modus operandi and plan all along); and that Maxwell recruited other females for an ostensibly proper position, such as therapeutic masseuse, with knowledge that the intent was for that person would be pressured to provide sexual gratification to Epstein. As a result, Epstein’s use of massages for sexual purposes is a central part of this case.

2020.07.27 17:28 LearningIsListening A not-so-brief rundown of the letters N-Q in Jeffrey Epstein's 'Little Black Book'

Below is a rundown of the letters N-Q under Epstein's contacts. Last year, I wrote about letters A-C. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/cpis3n/a_brief_rundown_of_the_first_ten_pages_of_jeffrey/).
I also wrote about letters D-F on July 5, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hlrba8/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_df_in_jeffrey/).
I posted letters G-I on July 13, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hqko0y/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_gi_in_jeffrey/).
I posted letters J-L on July 15, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hrq9bg/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_jl_of_jeffrey/).
I posted letter M on July 20, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/huw0yt/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_the_letter_m_in_jeffrey/). There are some misspelled names. Epstein entered their names like this.
I have bolded some of the more interesting connections and information, but there could be much more that I overlooked. I hope something here strikes an interest in someone and maybe we can get more investigations out of this. Please, if you know anything more about any of these people than what is presented here, post below. I am working off of the unredacted black book found here: https://www.coreysdigs.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Jeffrey-Epsteins-Little-Black-Book-unredacted.pdf

Pritzker’s name appears twice on Epstein’s flight logs (https://archive.org/stream/EpsteinFlightLogsLolitaExpress/Jeffrey-Epstein-Flight-Logs-in-PDF-format_djvu.txt). Pritzker is listed as one of the people who has knowledge of Maxwell and Epstein’s sexual trafficking conduct and interaction with underage minors (https://www.the-sun.com/news/778758/jeffrey-epstein-enablers-named-sex-trafficking-underage-victims/). Epstein has 12 phone numbers - including an emergency contact number - and two home addresses listed under Pritzker’s name. What’s even creepier is that there is a subtitle under his name that reads “Numero Uno”. Usually when Epstein adds a subtitle under someone’s name, it indicates what company they work for or a relationship of some kind (ex: X’s husband or Y’s friend). The fact that ‘Numero Uno’ is the subtitle under Pritzker’s name is unsettling, to say the least.

2020.07.03 16:13 sonofabutch The All-Q Team!

Recently I posted a write-up of the most popular (M, with 2,040) and least popular (X, with 0) letters to start last names in MLB history. If you throw out X, the next-least popular last-name letter is Q. There have been just 51 players in MLB history with a last name starting with Q.
The first Q I think of is Dan Quisenberry. That's one... 50 more!
Which of course got me thinking:
Who would be on the All-Q All-Star Team?
From this pool of 51 players, I tried to put together the best roster I could. It wasn't easy! I usually went by bWAR, except in cases where the player only had a handful of plate appearances or innings. Of the 51 Q's who have appeared in the majors, six are active members of an MLB organization, according to baseball-reference.com; four played in 2019.
Batters: A few names you'll recognize, and then a few from the history books. Nine batters totaling 27.1 career bWAR.
C Jamie Quirk - 0.7 bWAR, .247/.298/.347 (79 OPS+) in 2,266 AB (1975-1992). There have only been 51 Q's in MLB history and the 1980s Royals had two of them, Quirk and Quisenberry. Jamie Quirk is one of those players I thought was better than he actually was; he never topped 1.0 bWAR in any of his 18 seasons. Yet he played 18 seasons, so I guess he was doing something right! Or I should say left: He threw righty but hit lefty, and left-handed hitting catchers can always get a job. Quirk's best season offensively was 1990, when he hit .281/.353/.413 in 121 AB. In addition to 525 career appearances at catcher, Quirk also saw time at 3B, 1B, LF, SS, RF, and one inning at 2B!
1B Robb Quinlan - 1.3 bWAR, .276/.322/.401 (90 OPS+) in 1,112 AB (2003-2010). A platoon corner infieldecorner outfielder with the Angels, Quinlan could do damage against lefties (.298/.339/.453) but struggled against righties (.251/.301/.340), and alas, most pitchers are right-handed. Quinlan was drafted in 1995 by the California Angels, but turned it down to play for the University of Minnesota; four years later, the Anaheim Angels drafted him again, and this time he signed. Eleven years after that, he retired as a member of the Los Angeles Angels!
2B Joe Quinn - 4.7 bWAR, .262/.303/.328 (76 OPS+) in 6,897 AB (1884-1901). Of the 51 Q's in baseball history, 13 -- 25%! -- have the last name Quinn. The first on this team is Joe Quinn, a 19th century ballplayer with the distinction of being the first Australian in MLB history. Quinn played for eight teams in his 17 year career, mostly at second base but playing all over the infield as well as some games in the outfield. His best year was 1895, hitting .314/.360/.399 for the St. Louis Browns. He also was manager of the infamously bad 1899 Cleveland Spiders, who still hold the MLB record for futility at 20-134 -- a .130 W%. The 1962 New York Mets, for comparison, went 40-120, for a .250 W%!
3B Luis Quinones - 0.3 bWAR, .226/.282/.341 (72 OPS+) in 1,003 AB (1983-1992). A light-hitting utility player, Quinones had most of his career starts at third base but played every infield position and even a few games in the outfield during an eight-year career with five different teams. He would later be a coach and was briefly a minor league manager. (Note that there is another Luis Quinones, a 22-year-old pitcher in the Blue Jays system, but he's currently suspended due to PEDs.)
SS Joe Quest - 3.1 bWAR, .217/.252/.268 (67 OPS+) in 2,295 AB (1871-1886). Joe Quest sounds like the name of the hero in an adventure novel. He played for 10 years as a middle infielder in the bigs despite hitting just .217... he was celebrated as a flashy player on defense, pulling off crowd-pleasing stunts like catching a ball with his hands behind his back, and also -- in the days before the infield fly rule, introduced in 1895 -- intentionally "trapping" infield pop-ups so the runners couldn't tell if he'd caught them or not. After his playing career, Quest was a manager and then an umpire. But he's best remembered today for -- according to some sources -- coining the phrase Charley horse for a leg cramp.
LF Carlos Quentin - 10.5 bWAR, .252/.347/.484 (120 OPS+) in 2,790 AB (2006-2014). A two-time All-Star and 2008 Silver Slugger Award winner, Quentin was a superstar in high school in baseball, basketball, and football, and was a stand-out baseball player for Stanford University. "Q-uperman" battled elbow, shoulder, wrist, and knee injuries throughout his career and played in his last MLB game at the age of 31. Nevertheless, he holds most offensive records for a player with a last name beginning with Q.
CF Roman Quinn - 0.5 bWAR, .243/.321/.382 (86 OPS+) in 296 AB (2016-2019). A switch-hitting outfielder with the Phillies, Quinn hit a promising .263/.373/.333 in 15 games as a 23-year-old in 2016, then .260/.317/.412 in 2018, but fell to .213/.298/.370 last year. The 2011 2nd round pick has had promising minor league numbers (.285/.349/.409 in three seasons at Triple-A) and is one of the fastest players in baseball.
RF Carlos Quintana - 2.7 bWAR, .276/.350/.362 (94 OPS+) in 1,376 AB (1988-1993). For two years, 1990-1991, Quintana looked like he'd be a pretty good hitter -- he hit .291 with 49 2B and 138 RBI in 990 ABs as a first baseman and outfielder over those two seasons. But in February 1992, El Cañón was seriously injured in a car accident and missed the entire season; he returned in 1993, hitting just .244 with a .587 OPS, and was released. He would end his career in the Mexican League.
DH Mark Quinn - 3.3 bWAR, .282/.324/.481 (101 OPS+) in 1,089 AB. "The Mighty Quinn" was a rookie sensation in 2000, hitting .294/.342/.488 with 20 HR and 78 RBI as an outfielder, finishing third in the ROY voting behind Seattle's Kazuhiro Sasaki and Oakland's Terrence Long. The Royals released him three years later, at the age of 28, and he would play in the minors for the Padres, Devil Rays, Cardinals, White Sox, and finally in the Venezuela Winter League before hanging them up in 2007.
Bench: With a starting lineup this thin, you can imagine there weren't a lot of Quality Q's to be used as reserves. Only one player with a positive bWAR. Luckily we have a lot of positional flexibility with our starting nine. Five guys on the bench with a total career bWAR of -1.5.
C Humberto Quintero - 1.8 bWAR, .234/.267/.327 (61 OPS+) in 1,346 AB (2003-2014). A beefy backup catcher, Quintero played 12 years in the bigs but only topped 200 ABs twice (265 in 2010, 262 in 2011). He was regarded as a fine defensive catcher with a strong throwing arm, and is the perfect platoon partner with Quirk.
C/OF Paddy Quinn - -0.3 bWAR, .243/.273/.250 (73 OPS+) in 148 AB (1871-1877). The first player with a last name starting with Q in MLB history, Paddy made his debut in 1871 and finished his MLB career in 1877... with a total of just 42 games. Thirty-three of those 42 games came in one season, 1875, when he hit .265 in 117 AB as a member of three different teams. He would end his MLB career in 1877 as an outfielder with the Chicago White Stockings (later known as the Cubs), going 1-for-14 in four games. He was one of the first catchers in baseball history to stand more or less where modern catchers do, within a few feet of the batter -- this was in the days before masks, chest protectors, or even gloves!
IF Frank Quilici - -0.5 bWAR, .214/.281/.287 (61 OPS+) in 682 AB (1965-1970). Quilici was offered a huge $28,000 bonus in 1960 to sign with the New York Yankees after hitting .400 in his junior year at Western Michigan University, but turned it down because he had promised his father he'd graduate. A year later, the Twins signed him... for $15,000. It would work out in the end, though. After Quilici's playing days were over, he'd be a coach, a manager, and a broadcaster, all with the Twins.
UT Omar Quintanilla - -0.9 bWAR, .220/.287/.295 (56 OPS+) in 1,035 AB (2005-2014). A utility man with the Rockies, Rangers, Mets, and Orioles, Quintanilla struggled to break the Mendoza Line most years but lasted nine seasons because of his versatility, seeing time at shortstop, second, and third base.
SS Rey Quiñones - -1.6 bWAR, .243/.287/.357 (74 OPS+) in 1,533 AB. Once regarded as the top prospect in the Red Sox system, Quiñones put up solid offensive numbers in the low minors (.295/.352/.496 as a 19-year-old with Elmira in 1983) but struggled defensively. When his bat went cold as well, the Red Sox no longer had a use for him. But he did prove important in Boston history as he was traded with three other prospects to the Mariners in 1986 for Spike Owen (and Dave Henderson), who would become their starting shortstop in the post-season. As for Quiñones, he was out of MLB by the age of 25.
Starting Pitchers: A couple solid veterans at the top, a promising young arm in the middle, but then our Qs get questionable. Five starters with a total career bWAR of 77.9... even though the #1 and #2 combined for 83.0!
SP Jack Quinn - 58.6 bWAR, 247-218, 3.29 ERA, 1.300 WHIP, 3,920.1 IP (1909-1933). In terms of bWAR, Jack Quinn was by far the best "Q" player in MLB history... and he may not have even been a Q. Quinn broke into the bigs at the age of 25 and threw his last MLB pitch six days after his 50th birthday. Maybe. His birth year is variously listed as 1883, 1884, or 1885, and sometimes he hinted he was even older than that; other times he said he was younger. "I'll tell my age when I quit," he once vowed. But he never did. His place of birth may have been somewhere in Pennsylvania Coal Country, but no one knows for sure; one baseball researcher believes he was born in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Quinn's real last name was likely not Quinn, but possibly Picus, Piqeues, or Pajkos; he said he couldn't remember. Little is known about Quinn because he liked his privacy; his teammates sometimes called him "The Wooden Indian" because he'd stand there silently, like a statue outside a store. It's also likely that Quinn, who was orphaned at a young age, didn't know when or where he was born, or even his real last name. But in any event he played under the name Quinn, so he's one of the 51 Q's in baseball history. When the spitball was outlawed in 1920, Quinn -- who had been in the bigs since 1909 -- was one of 17 pitchers "grandfathered in" and allowed to keep loading up the ball. Unlike many of his contemporaries, who literally spit on the ball with the help of tobacco juice, Quinn threw a "dry spitter", just wetting two fingers by bringing them to his mouth. He also threw a kind of knuckler. But despite throwing two famously hard to control pitches, Quinn was one of the best control pitchers of his day, averaging just 1.9743 BB/9 over his 23-year career.
SP Jose Quintana - 24.4 bWAR, 83-77, 3.72 ERA, 1.265 WHIP, 1,485.0 IP (2012-2019). During his first five seasons, Quintana posted a 3.41 ERA and 1.242 WHIP, generating 20.0 bWAR; over the last three seasons, he's had a 4.28 ERA and 1.307 WHIP with just 5.7 bWAR. The 31-year-old Cubs lefthander is a free agent at the end of this season.
SP Cal Quantrill - 0.4 bWAR, 6-8, 5.16 ERA, 1.301 WHIP, 103.0 IP (2019). The #8 overall pick of the 2016 draft, Stanford University's Cal Quantrill hasn't quite lived up to the hype but is still a highly regarded young pitcher. Quantrill joins Carlos Quentin as the only Q-named MLB players who also played for the Cardinal.
SP Mel Queen Sr. - -2.1 bWAR, 27-40, 5.09 ERA, 1.610 WHIP, 556.2 IP (1942-1952). A promising prospect with the Yankees, Queen battled injuries and then missed all of 1945 and some of 1946 to war service. His best season came near the end of his MLB career, going 7-9 with a 4.44 ERA as a swingman for the Pirates in 1951, but he would continue pitching in the Pacific Coast League for several years after that.
SP Rubén Quevedo - -3.4 bWAR, 14-30, 6.15 ERA, 1.652 WHIP, 326.1 IP (2000-2003). Quevedo was worth only -3.4 bWAR, but consider the Braves traded him to the Cubs for P Terry Mulholland and SS Jose Hernandez in 1999, the pair generating 1.8 bWAR for the Braves over the last two months of that season; two years later, the Cubs would trade him to the Brewers for RP David Weathers, who was worth 0.6 bWAR for the Cubs over the last two months of the season. So you might say Quevedo was worth 2.4 bWAR. You might say that. Anyway, Quevedo was a classic "tweener", as his fine minor league numbers (41-30, 3.54 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, 682 K in 663.2 IP) never translanted to the bigs. Tragically, Quevedo died of a heart attack in 2016 at the age of 37.
Relief Pitchers: For whatever reason, there have been a number of fine relievers with last names starting with Q. Six relievers with a combined total of 54.4 bWAR.
RP Dan Quisenberry - 24.6 bWAR, 56-46, 244 SV, 2.76 ERA, 1.175 WHIP (1979-1990). When you list all the Qs in alphabetical order, Quisenberry comes up last, but he's probably the most famous. A three-time All-Star, five-time Rolaids Relief Pitcher of the Year, and five-time Sporting News Reliever of the Year, Quiz led the league in saves five times. In each of those seasons, he also pitched more than 100 innings, almost unheard of now for closers. His best season was probably 1983, when he went 5-3 with a then-MLB record 45 saves (1.94 ERA, 0.928 WHIP in 139.0 IP). Unlike today's closers, the right-handed submariner wasn't dominant -- he struck out just 3.3 batters per 9 innings -- but he also rarely gave up walks or home runs. He died at the age of 45 of brain cancer.
RP Paul Quantrill - 17.8 bWAR, 68-78, 21 SV, 3.83 ERA, 1.416 WHIP (1992-2005). A bullpen workhorse, Quantrill led the league in appearances in four straight seasons (2001-2004). The Canadian was an All-Star with the Blue Jays in 2001, but his best year was with the Dodgers in 2003 -- 1.75 ERA and 0.983 WHIP in 77.1 IP. In 2010, he was inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame. He's also Chad Quantrill's dad.
RP Mel Queen Jr. - 6.1 bWAR, 20-17, 14 SV, 3.14 ERA, 1.229 WHIP (1964-1972). Born in New York while his dad was pitching for the Yankees, young Mel became a high school star in the late 1950s while his dad was pitching for the Hollywood Stars of the Pacific Coast League. Queen came up as a batter, but after hitting just .170 as a position player, he was converted to a pitcher. (He'd hit .190 as a pitcher!) Mel was used as a starter in 1967, going 14-8 with a 2.76 ERA and a 1.058 WHIP in 195.2 IP, but spent most of his career working out of the bullpen. In 1971, he posted a 1.78 ERA in 44 appearances, striking out 53 in 65.2 IP.
RP Chad Qualls - 5.8 bWAR, 52-48, 74 SV, 3.89 ERA, 1.276 WHIP (2004-2017). A sinkeslider right-hander, Qualls was the epitome of the journeyman middle reliever -- he played for nine teams in his 14-year career. But he was largely pretty good, with a 109 ERA+, and he lasted 14 years, pitching until he was 38. Not bad at all. But he's probably best remembered for falling down while celebrating a strikeout in 2013. Oddly enough, a year earlier Qualls fell down during a pickoff attempt. Everybody needs a schtick.
RP Kevin Quackenbush - 0.5 bWAR, 13-15, 8 SV, 4.38 ERA, 1.329 WHIP (2014-2018). Quack was top duck in his impressive rookie year (2.48 ERA, 1.104 WHIP, 18 BB, 56 K in 54.1 IP) in 2014, but hasn't been able to return to that level since. He spent all of 2019 in Triple-A with the Dodgers, his fourth organization.
RP José Quijada - -0.4 bWAR, 2-3, 1 SV, 5.76 ERA, 1.787 WHIP (2019). A 24-year-old lefty, Quijada made his debut last year with the Marlins, striking out an eye-popping 44 batters in 29.2 innings. But he also walked 26 batters and hit four more so... he's a work in progress. The Marlins waived him after the season and now the Los Angeles Angels will try to teach him how to throw it over the plate.
The Q's who weren't high enough Quality: In the interest of completeness I present the other 26 players whose last name starts with Q.
Switch-hitting utilityman Jim Qualls (no relation to Chad) played briefly in the bigs, hitting .223 in 139 AB between 1969 and 1972, but is best remembered for breaking up Tom Seaver's perfect game with one out in the 9th inning on July 9, 1969. Qualls's left field single ended not just the perfecto but the no-no. Mets outfielder Ron Swoboda had a great line: "You ask, 'How much worse is a one-hitter?' It's the difference between being a virgin and not."
Tom Qualters was a so-called "bonus baby" and it ruined what chance he had to be a successful major leaguer. Until 1965, there was no draft in baseball -- amateurs could sign with any team they wanted. This of course meant the wealthiest teams would out-bid everyone else. (What, you thought Moneyball was a 21st century problem?) In 1947, baseball instituted a rule that any amateur player signed to a large contract had to be kept on the major league roster for two full seasons (dropped to one season in 1962). The thinking was big money teams like the Yankees wouldn't want to waste a roster spot on a raw rookie. But lots of teams did it anyway. The so-called "bonus babies" were sparingly used, if at all, and often shunned by their more experienced but less well-paid teammates. The rule led to many promising prospects wasting prime developmental years sitting on the bench. One such player was Tom Qualters, who was signed by the Philadelphia Phillies out of high school for $40,000. The 18-year-old was mockingly nicknamed "Money Bags" by his teammates and was given just one chance to pitch during his rookie year of 1953: He was thrown in during the 8th inning of a blowout loss in September, retiring one batter but allowing six runs on four hits and a walk, for a 162.00 ERA. Qualters would then spend all of 1954 watching from the bullpen. Qualters wouldn't get another chance to pitch in the bigs until 1957. According to Wikipedia, Qualters is the only pitcher to appear on a Topps baseball card in four separate seasons without ever recording a career win, loss, or save.
Bill Quarles pitched briefly for the American Association's Washington Statesmen in 1891, giving up 27 runs (but only 20 earned) in 22.0 IP as a 21-year-old. Two years later he would be back with the Boston Beaneaters of the National League, going 2-1 in three starts with a 4.67 ERA. He would continue pitching in the minors after that, but died in 1897 following surgery for an unknown condition. He was just 26 years old.
A long-time minor leaguer, George Quellich had just one brief moment in the big leagues, hitting .222 in 54 ABs with the Detroit Tigers in 1931. But he hit .347 -- with 200 hits, 36 doubles, and 31 home runs -- for Reading in the International League in 1929, and in 2008 (50 years after his death in a car accident) he was inducted into the International League Hall of Fame.
Venezuelan infielder Juniel Querecuto went 1-for-11 in four games for the Tampa Bay Rays in 2016 -- but the one hit was a triple. The switch-hitting Querecuto is now in the Arizona Diamondbacks system, and last year hit .288 in 102 games for the Reno Aces.
Quick is a great last name for a pitcher, but it didn't work out for Eddie Quick. Indeed, it would be his MLB career that was quick -- just two innings, giving up five runs (two earned) on five hits and a walk. He would stay in professional baseball for several years after that, pitching in the Western League, the Pacific Coast League, and the Pacific National League. He was still pitching semipro ball in 1913 but fell ill and later died of pneumonia. He was 31. Kind of odd... of the 51 guys on this list, several died quite young.
Apparently no relation, Hal "Blondie" Quick lived up to his last name with 14 triples for the Greenville Spinners in 1939, earning a September call-up to the Washington Senators where he'd collect 10 hits in 41 at-bats. But that would be his one and only chance in the majors. More impressively, he would spend 25 years in the United States Air Force, serving in World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. He earned two Bronze Stars and would retire a lieutenant colonel. He died in 1974, at the age of 56, of a heart condition and is buried at Fort Leavenworth National Cemetery.
Lee Quillin was called up to the Chicago to play for the White Sox in the final days of the 1906 season, going 3-for-9 in four games as an infielder. The following year he'd get more of an opportunity, but he'd hit just .192 (29-for-151) and would spend the rest of his career in the minors... winning three straight Western League championships with Denver from 1911 to 1913.
Finners Quinlan got into 13 games with the St. Louis Cardinals in 1913, and then had 114 at-bats with the Chicago White Sox in 1915 -- hitting a combined .183. Before, in between, and after, Finners (his real name was Thomas, and I can't find a source for how he got the unusual nickname) played for minor league teams all over the country. Playing for the Salt Lake City Bees in the long-season Pacific Coast League in 1916, Quinlan had 241 hits, including 49 doubles, in 181 games. But his professional baseball career came to an abrupt end on November 9, 1918 when -- two days before the end of World War I -- shrapnel tore through his throwing arm. It would later be amputated, and he'd also lose an eye. After recovering, Quinlan would serve many years in various roles as an elected official in Pennsylvania.
Catcher Frank Quinlan went 0-for-5 in his one and only appearance with the Boston Reds of the American Association in 1891. He would later play pro ball all over New England for several more seasons. Yet another Q with an early death: He died at the age of 35 of heart failure.
Tom Quinlan, Robb Quinlan's big brother by nine years, only got 58 big-league at-bats scattered across four seasons... and seven years. Quinlan made his debut in 1990 and his exit in 1996, in between hitting .155 with one home run. He would end his professional career playing three seasons in the Korean League, hitting .233/.315/.490.
A shortstop known only as Quinlan got four at-bats with the National Association's Philadelphia Whites in 1874. He had a single and an RBI. Nothing else is known about him. Ditto for the outfieldeshortstop known only as Quinn, who had 8 plate appearances in two games with the Brooklyn Atlantics in 1875; he had one hit and scored two runs.
In 1899, Frank Quinn - -0.3 bWAR, .176/.300/.235 (49 OPS+) had 34 at-bats over 12 games as an outfielder and second baseman with the Chicago Orphans -- wait what, Chicago Orphans? That's right! They weren't officially known as the Cubs until 1907; they were the (blasphemy!) White Stockings from 1870-1889, and then the Colts from 1890-1897. Following a disappointing 59-73 finish in 1897, the Chicago team released playemanager Cap Anson -- who had been with the team since it was a founding member of the National League in 1876. Anson was known as "Pop" to the players, and as they were now without a "Pop", wags began to refer to the team as the "Orphans." The unofficial Cubs nickname started being used in 1902, and was officially adopted by the team five years later.
Fifty years later, another Frank Quinn made the bigs. This Quinn was a superb high school pitcher, once striking out 89 batters over five games and then in the sixth game threw a 17-strikeout one-hitter. He then led Yale to back-to-back collegiate league titles. He pitched in eight games for the Red Sox in 1949, posting a pretty good 2.86 ERA and 1.227 WHIP in 22.0 IP. But in spring training the following year he reported shoulder pain, and would get just one appearance in 1950, yielding two runs on two hits and a walk. His arm never recovered and he was done at the age of 22. When old-timers say that no one babied pitchers in the old days and they never got hurt, that's survivorship bias. There's lots of guys like Quinn who we never heard of because they blew out their arms before they made it.
John Quinn had only two MLB at-bats, both as a catcher for the Philadelphia Phillies in 1911. He went 0-for-2.
Joseph Quinn got into three games in 1881, one with the Boston Red Stockings -- the team that would become the Boston Braves -- and two with the incredibly named Worcester Worcesters, sometimes also known by the perhaps even better name of Worcester Ruby Legs. Quinn went 1-for-7 as a catcher with Worcester and 0-for-4 as a first baseman with Boston; he would later be an umpire.
Pitcher Tad Quinn appeared in three games with the Philadelphia Athletics, once in 1902 and twice in 1903, giving up 15 runs (nine earned) on 23 hits and 6 walks in 17.0 innings.
As I noted earlier, 13 of the 51 Q's -- 25% of them -- have the last name Quinn. Of those 13, four -- 30% -- were catchers. There have been almost as many catchers named Quinn (4) as catchers with all other Q last names combined (5)! The last of the catching Quinns -- and as far as I can tell, none of them are related -- is Tom Quinn, who had 422 ABs between 1886 and 1890, hitting .185/.259/.232.
The majestically named Wellington Hunt Quinn is listed in the record books as "Wimpy." He pitched in three games for the Chicago Cubs in 1941, giving up four runs on three hits and three walks over five innings. But he had a much longer career as a minor leaguer -- and as a batter! Wimpy was a minor league corner infielder from 1939 to 1951 and hit .300+ six times, hit 20+ home runs three times, and 100+ RBIs four times. (He hit .500 in MLB... albeit it was 1-for-2.) With the Vancouver Capilanos in 1940, he hit .342 with 208 hits, 39 doubles, 15 triples, and 27 home runs. It's somewhat odd that the Cubs called him up as a pitcher, as his minor league pitching numbers weren't nearly as impressive -- 6.81 ERA, 1.878 WHIP in 189.0 IP. He would later be a manager. But Wimpy was yet another Q who died young, passing away at the age of 36 from cancer in 1954.
Lefty reliever Luis Quintana gave up six runs on 17 hits and 14 walks in 12.2 innings in 1974, and six runs on 13 hits and six walks in 7.0 innings in 1975, and that was it for his MLB career, though he would pitch in the minors into the early 80s. He died in a car crash at the age of 57 in 2009.
Marshall Quinton played in two MLB seasons, 1884 and 1885, hitting .228 in 123 AB as a catcher, shortstop, and outfielder. "Marsh" was twice arrested for stealing -- once in 1878 and again in 1890. He died at the age of 52 in 1904.
Lefty Rafael Quirico lasted just one game in the majors, getting rocked for seven runs on four hits and five walks in 1.2 innings as a member of the Phillies in 1996. A former Yankee prospect, Quirico had some flashes of excellence (2.26 ERA, 1.178 WHIP, 162 K in 155.1 IP in A-ball in 1991) but was never given another chance after that disastrous outing. The Phillies released him and the Angels picked him up, but he posted a 6.91 ERA in Double-A and they gave up on him as well.
Dartmouth College graduate Art Quirk had five starts and two relief appearances with the Orioles in '62 and three starts and four relief appearances with the Senators in '63, posting a combined 3-2 record with a 5.21 ERA and 1.759 WHIP in 48.1 IP. The lefty struck out 497 batters in 553.2 minor league innings but never made it back to the Show. He's apparently not related to the catcher Jamie Quirk.
Guillermo Quiroz was a journeyman backup catcher for 10 seasons, 2004 to 2014, playing for six different teams; he only topped 100 ABs in one season, with 134 in 2008. (He played 10 seasons and retired with 346 at-bats.) He's the type of guy every team needs stashed away in Triple-A in case of an injury. Quiroz hit .199/.256/.277.
Of special note is Billy Queen, who had two pinch-hit at-bats in 1954 with the Milwaukee Braves and struck out both times. I felt a little bad cutting him because it's the second time I did it: Billy had the nickname "Doc" but I couldn't uncover any actual medical training, and therefore I also left him off my All-Physician Team. But he will make my team of all guys who had two pinch hit at-bats but struck out both times.

What forces are causing chaos in the United States?
The death of a black American named George Floyd on 5/25/2020 sparked a wave of unprecedented violence. The rebels who pretended to be Justice for George Floyd did not hesitate to attack anyone, from the police to the civilians and peaceful protesters, and caused a series of arson and arson. all over America.
https://preview.redd.it/urqashxydp451.jpg?width=290&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=1a551761e81cf737d03fa339e6a856a549db13c4
Is George Floyd's death in a "scenario", or in other words, who is benefiting from George Floyd's death?
The answer is, of course, the forces that create chaos and destruction - that is, anti-American elements and against the Trump administration.
The more turbulent America was during the election year, the left-wing media under the control of underground power and the CCP exaggerated the disaster and blamed President Trump.
Logically, this is absurd. Because President Trump has nothing to do with the death of George Floyd. But it indirectly works for the political trick, when the left-wing media will make full use of the whirlwind of American people's feelings, amplifying fear, anger and frustration into an "emotional" anti President Trump in the upcoming election.
The left-wing media will delve deep into the emotions of the American people, amplifying fear, anger and frustration into "feelings" against President Trump in the upcoming election.

Rescuing Joe Biden's "gag" "
The death of George Floyd occurred just days after Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden interviewed a black man. He made a mistake when he said, "You aint Black enough", implying "You are not black if you do not vote for me".
Of course, the black community reacted to this objectionable statement, and the Democratic Party experienced a horrific phen by Joe Biden's "thoughtless" comment. Democrats fear they risk losing their "black" votes on November 4, when many black Americans will vote for Donald Trump.
Coincidentally, a scenario seemed to have been "set up" for the Democratic Party that Leftist Media dreamed of: White police killed black people in the middle of the day.
Suddenly the indiscriminate comment of Joe Biden was quickly forgotten and the media warned of an attempt to divert all "sins" to President Trump.

Since an incident in Minnesota, now rioters on behalf of justice for George Floyd have caused riots across the United States. Left-wing provisors have encouraged militants to smash businesses, burn cars and buildings, causing chaos out of control. Shocking evidence: The rebellions have a staged hand
Violence has erupted in major cities across the United States for the past few days, signaling civil unrest that will last for days to come. George Floyd's death was a tragedy, and most Americans expressed peacefully protesting the police 'excessive abuse of violence.
The growing riots exposed the dark side that shows evidence of an underground force trying to navigate the wrath of George Floyd's death in the direction of chaos as a "civil war".
The growing riots exposed the dark side that shows evidence of an underground force trying to navigate the wrath of George Floyd's death in the direction of chaos as a "civil war". Let's start with the riots that happened in New York, where the head of the state government, Governor Andrew Cuomo of the Democratic Party, is becoming powerless or deliberately powerless, so that rioters will take over the streets. , arson and police attack.
According to John Miller, the deputy commissioner of police responsible for intelligence and counterterrorism of New York confirmed, through analysis and investigation there is evidence that the riot group plans to prepare to attack the police. .
"Before the protests began, anarchist group organizers planned to raise bail. They planned to recruit medical teams in the event of a conflict with the police. ".
Authorities have discovered a complex network of bicycle scouts to guide riot protest groups in different directions, in order to gather larger groups to places where it is easy. commit acts of vandalism, even attack police and burn police cars. Obviously this is not just a heartless angry crowd, but these riot groups are being guided and organized with purpose and this is alarming.
In Chicago, Mayor Lori Lightfoot (Democratic Party) openly admitted: "There is no doubt. This is an organized effort. Clearly there have been efforts to turn the peace process into something violent ".
Ms. Lightfoot did not specify whether these groups were left-wing anti-fascist groups commonly known as Antifa, or local street gangs? However, she asked the FBI, the Department of Gunpowder & Explosives and the US Attorney's Office to help, investigate groups of gasoline bombs and arson.
Authorities in the state of Minnesota, the site of the violent protests, have found some combustible materials used to create riots.
John Harrington, Minnesota's Public Safety Commissioner, said some combustible materials were found in the neighborhoods where the fire had occurred. Some fences were erected a few days ago. Minnesota police also found stolen cars used to transport flammable materials. Stolen goods and weapons are also found in these stolen cars.
In some other cities, investigators also found piles of bricks lined up near or righteous at the violent protest sites.
Kansas City police reported that they had found bricks and boulders piled up near protest sites around the city. This raises concerns that violent individuals or groups planned to loot, destroy and attack the city over the weekend.
In Baltimore, city officials had to demolish heaps of bricks and bottles in downtown. Baltimore Police confirmed they are working with law enforcement partners to patrol the area.
In some other cities, investigators also found piles of bricks lined up near or righteous at the violent protest sites. In some other cities, investigators also found piles of bricks lined up near or righteous at the violent protest sites.
Similarly, in New York City, a "random" pile of bricks was discovered in St. Marks Place and Seventh Street, although there are no construction sites nearby. And then, these bricks were "used" by Manhattan rioters as weapons to attack civilians and police.

Kansas, Dallas, and Fayetteville cities in North Carolina all had piles of bricks in the center of violent protests. It is hard to believe that these staged pallets were a coincidence of protest locations across the United States, showing the level of planning and coordination of riot groups at a level. very high.
This is clear evidence that the Trump administration is dealing with a much more complex underground force, and that the protest groups are only "mobile" chess pieces.
With the economy still in recession due to the Wuhan virus pandemic, and the presidential election taking place in November, underground forces nourishing anger and disappointment will rise and last long. throughout the summer to promote violence across the United States as election day approaches.

The Antifa rioters allied with nominal Democratic Party members
demanded justice for George Floyd, but what the Antifa group shows suggests they did the opposite.
Destroying property is not a form of legal protest. Arson and shooting the police are not justice. Blatant robbery at businesses and attacking civilians is not peaceful. These are all acts of terrorism.
In the context of rioting and state government (Democratic Party) seem helpless to let sabotage become reckless, President Donald Trump vowed to list Antifa as a terrorist organization. .
However, there is a member of Congress who is publicly supporting civil unrest and street riots, encouraging hatred and ill-will in "disguise" to demand justice for the skin. color. It was New York Congressman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

This congressman has instructed violent protesters to hide their identities, such as wearing neutral colors and long sleeves to cover tattoos, in order to be "labeled" as peaceful protesters. Among the items that the riot group recommends include: Safety glasses, masks and heat-resistant gloves.
In addition, Ocasio-Cortez also reminded her to keep her hair long and not bring "sensitive" things to avoid getting caught, by displaying pictures of knives and drugs. In addition, she recommends rioters should leave their phones at home, or if they carry it, turn off Face / Touch ID first, or leave airplane mode on. All of these recommendations posted on Twitter and Instagram attracted 2.5 million views.
In addition, this female Democratic Party member also criticized people who called for the prevention of civil unrest. "If you call for an end to this unrest, and if you call for an end to all this, but you are not calling for an end to the preconditions that create instability, you are a hypocrite. ".
For one thing, while this female representative spoke out to protect the rioters - which, in her own way, were ethical people - continued the fourth consecutive "destruction" by burning. set fire to a church in Washington DC, destroyed national monuments and wounded several secret agents outside the White House.

Democratic Party: Leaving chaos and refusing National Guards
Of the more than 40 cities that had riots, more than half of them fell into anarchy anarchy including Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Detroit, Porland, Atlanta .... It is worth noting that these 22 cities all have governors or mayors of the Democratic Party.
The question is: Why are "feeble" and "helpless" in front of violent protest groups all falling into states controlled by the Democratic Party? The answer is definitely: The Democratic Party wants to create chaos, leaving the rioters to destroy businesses and attack civilians. The purpose of creating an atmosphere of fear is that most Americans will choose to continue to "shelter" in the home, while business owners cannot reopen due to robbery and vandalism.
The consequences will be: Bankruptcy, unemployment, economic decline in the election year. Members of the Democratic Party continued their political "life" with President Donald Trump as they did during the pandemic: Leave the elderly to die in nursing homes; Unleash the number of deaths from Wuhan virus, creating fear to "encourage "people to stay home.

When US cities are repeatedly hit by theft, vandalism and police attacks, President Donald Trump threatens to send troops to restore order if the governors at the sub states controlled by the Democratic Party intentionally do nothing.
More than 20,000 members of the National Guard have been sent to 29 states to deal with escalating violence, but New York state is not one of them. New York Mayor Bill De Blasio said he did not want to have a police officer appear in his city, while Governor Andrew Cuomo said he would respect the Mayor's wishes.
Strangely, New York state was the "black spot" in the attack map of the Antifa group, when New York City "fell" to the crazy attacks of this organization member. Despite the curfew, New York police said nearly 700 rioters had been arrested, and several police officers were also injured in the violent attacks.
The state of New York was again the "black spot" on Antifa's offensive map, when New York City "fell" to the organization's insane attack. The state of New York was again the "black spot" on Antifa's offensive map, when New York City "fell" to the organization's insane attack. (Getty)
According to AP data, more than 5,600 rioters have been arrested in the past week for crimes such as theft, vandalism, highway blocking and curfew breaks.
However, while rejecting the National Guard that President Trump sent, leaving the civilians to destroy and rob the civilians, the Democratic governor declared the lie: "This is the time to heal, to unite people, and the best way to protect civil rights is to avoid escalating violence. "
Do Democratic Party officials believe that riots and looting are a "peaceful march"? Left-wing media: "almost peaceful" riots
Left-wing media are considered the four great powers in the US when most mainstream newspapers in the United States belong to the Democrats.

When the Jews were beaten and killed in riots in Crown Heights (New York) in 1991, the leading New York Times editor AM Rosenthal wrote an article. Thunder condemns violence and those who cheer for riots.
Rosenthal wrote: "Using discontent or imagining as an excuse for violence will never be accepted, not by blacks or whites, not by the media, not by City Hall. , not now, but never ".
Nearly 30 years after his article, similar scenes took place throughout the United States: Rioters shot to death and injured police, civilians attacked, businesses destroyed. , churches, police departments were burned ... But the media today have taken a completely different perspective than the time of AM Rosenthal.
During the Wuhan virus pandemic, if peaceful protesters expressed disappointment with the harsh blockade of Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer (Michigan state), most left-wing media would simultaneously chatter. "they are the ones who cause chaos. But when violent protesters broke windows and attacked civilians in recent days, left-wing media claimed that they belonged to the category of "racial justice".
When peaceful protesters demanded the re-opening of the country, leftist media said they caused chaos. But for violent protesters, left-wing media claim that it belongs to the category of "racial justice".

But for violent protesters, left-wing media claim that it belongs to the category of "racial justice". (Synthetic)
When The Times published an emergency call for police by a riot group, the editorial board of the New York Times that Rosenthal had once devoted to not only did not have an article protesting violence like him, even rubbing it with words such as "demagogue" such as "riot and robbery is regrettable, but a result of legitimate discontent".
Worse, the New York Times correspondent Nikole Hannah-Jones also argued that the rioters' destruction of property is not a violent act but a perfectly reasonable one. She even claimed that only immoral people condemn this behavior.
The New York Times argues that similar grievances can only be resolved through active federal investigations, depriving police of legal protections ... and of course voting for the Party. Democracy.
Even a New York Times editor criticized President Donald Trump's promise to end the violence as "a brutal crackdown on racial justice protesters" and allegations of riot. are "non-violent, sometimes bloody protests".
To achieve the political goal of the left, the New York Times writers did not hesitate to reverse the concept, upside down the values ​​of good and evil, causing a large number of followers to support the guys. riots, looting.

While the AP news agency banned reporters from using the word "looting," NBC censored the word "riot" to protect thugs who were smashing and beating people, CNN commentator Chris Cuomo said. describes the riots as "a minority group of people expressing a desperate plea to listen". In front of a burning police station, MSNBC correspondent Ali Velshi reported that, while "fires have started", the protesters in Minneapolis "are generally not stubborn people. "
In 1991, veteran editor Rosenthal understood what his successors at the New York Times did not understand or intentionally did not. He understood that violence was not a revolution or a "coup" but a terrible terror ... The Democratic Party "politicized" the police to "tie up" this force.
Dawn 2 / 6, black police chief David Dorn (77) was shot dead by rioters as he tried to prevent them from robbing things in a store in the state of Missouri.
While President Donald Trump praised and glorified former police chief David Dorn on Twitter, almost all Democrats were silent before his death. Paradoxically, the same skin color as George Floyd, but David Dorn died while he was practicing justice, and murdered by the same rioters by the Democratic Party and left-wing media. cradling.

During violent nationwide crackdowns, police officers were shot, attacked with bricks, stones and petrol bombs. A policeman was shot and seriously injured while trying to disperse a crowd outside a casino in Las Vegas. Four officers were hit by bullets in the city of St. Louis (Missouri) by armed protesters. In Atlanta, six police officers were charged after a video showed them dragging two young people out of cars during the protests. And at a rally in Buffalo (New York), an SUV crashed into a group of officers, injuring three policemen.
Manny Ramirez, president of the Fort Worth Local Police Federation, said: "These protests greatly affect the mental health of the police and create a lot of pressure." While a police leader in St. Louis said: "We feel like pawns on the board. It is as if there is a plan and we are being rotated by both sides (local authorities and protesters) for them to achieve the goal. destination".
"We feel like pawns on the board. It is as if there is a plan and we are being twisted by both sides (local authorities and protesters) to achieve their goals." "We see ourselves as pawns on the board. It is as if there is a whole plan and we are being twisted by both sides (local authorities and protesters) so they can achieve their goals." (Getty)
Now, in Democratic-controlled states, governors and mayors seem to "neglect" control of the situation, and leave the police to confront unruly protesters. Especially in New York state, the administration of Gov. Andrew Cuomo seemed to abandon New York police to cope with hysterical attacks, without the support of the National Guard.
Even commentator Chris Cuomo - the younger brother of governor Andrew Cuomo blatantly defended the smugglers on CNN: "There are too many people who see the protests as a problem. What is it that forces these people down the road is inequality and without justice.Please show me where the protesters are polite and peaceful. who is required to be mild, descend the ladder and keep calm. "
The riots in New York were so intense that the New York Police Federation president recently tweeted for help: "The New York Police Department is out of control of the city. We don't have the right leader. (Governor Andrew Cuomo) The men and women were dumped with bricks, the cars were burned, and this happened continuously. We had a curfew at 8pm, but they were still on the way, President Trump is watching this, I'm asking the President to please, would you please send federal staff to New York City now and follow what is going on if Governor Andrew Cuomo didn't send the National Guard right away, so the federal government please come in. We're tied, we're forced down the stairs (with the riot group). "
In New York state, the governor's administration, Andrew Cuomo, seemed to abandon New York police to succumb to hysterical attacks, without the support of the National Guard.

The current smashing, robbery and riots in the United States are now largely due to members of the Antifa group, now considered a domestic terrorist organization by the federal government.
The brutality of the police before the death of George Floyd may or may not be motivated by race, which is hard to prove. However, in addition to the police abusing violence and being held responsible before the law, acts of looting, arson, vandalism and assault on civilians must also be prosecuted regardless of beliefs or color.
Ironically, when Democratic governors and mayors responded strongly to police violence, they and Congressional members such as Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez ignored the protests. vandalism. This is no different to abetting the illegal people, the anarchists have more "land" to grow stronger, threatening the security of everyone.
The thing is, when the state government purposely tended to the riotous group Antifa, there was a risk that the police would be forced to adopt stronger security tactics. When the police were pushed into a situation attacked by violent mobs, they were difficult to control and were forced to shoot self-defense.
This will easily create an excuse for the "anti-Trump" forces to take the blame on the police and the Trump administration is brutal to the common people. It is all in the plan that the underground forces have planned in this election year: It must be at all costs to prevent President Donald Trump from being re-elected for a second term ...

Continue essential county services; support online options; explore grace periods and fee reductions; encourage teleworking and expansion of emergency leave policies to support county employees. Intensify social distancing strategies by employers, faith-based institutions and entertainment venues. Support for students out of school and in need of healthy food options and health care services. Some people that may be at higher risk of getting very sick from this illness includes:
Older adults
People who have serious chronic medical conditions such as heart or lung disease and diabetes “The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to the virus,” said Leigh-Anne Stafford, health officer for Oakland County. “The simple everyday actions you take to help avoid the spread of flu and other illnesses will also help prevent the spread of coronaviruses.”
Prevention tips include:
Washing your hands often with soap and warm water for 20 seconds, and help young children do the same. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Covering your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, or cough/sneeze in your upper sleeve. Immediately throw away used tissues in the trash, then wash hands.
Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. Staying home when sick except to get medical care. Avoiding close contact, sharing cups, or sharing eating utensils. Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces, such as toys and doorknobs.
Practicing good health habits. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food. Being prepared with the following supplies: Maintain a two-week supply of water and food at home Routinely check your regular prescription drugs to ensure that you won’t run out
Keep non-prescription drugs and other health supplies on hand Get copies and maintain electronic versions of health records Talk with family members about how they would be cared for if they got sick and what would be needed to care for them in your home CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19. Patients with COVID-19 have reportedly had mild to severe respiratory illness. There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19 infection.

Black History Month Lecture - Harlem Architecture: Colonial & Modernism With John Reddick, 2/27

In this engaging lecture architect and historian, John Reddick will explore the colonial aesthetic in Harlem's early \modern\ architecture, considering how it served as a backdrop to the jazz age. Discussing select local early twentieth-century designs, such as the Roger Morris Apartments and the Colonial Park & Pool, Reddick will place into context the architecture of Harlem and the work of African American architect, Vertner Tandy, and his residence for Madame Walker on 136th Street, known during the Renaissance as the \Dark Tower.\ John Reddick has served as a curator and discussion leader for the Harlem Focus series at the Smithsonian Institution’s Cooper-Hewitt Design Center and has worked on several Harlem public space & art projects including Ralph Ellison Memorial, Harriet Tubman Square, and Frederick Douglass Circle. Reddick received a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from Ohio State University and a Master of Architecture from Yale University.

Imani Uzuri: Conjure Woman, 2/27

Imani Uzuri, raised in rural North Carolina, is an award-winning vocalist, composer, librettist, and improviser called “a postmodernist Bessie Smith” by the Village Voice.

I would like to give a shoutout to u/thivnav for telling me about Flushing Town Hall. Also to u/mandonuts, for Public Theater (which should be here next week).
As a personal recommendation, I would suggest going to see Sorry to Bother You, which I thought was fantastic.
Again, you can search the events here. There are some more search filters. Notably, you can choose to omit public-run events (my GAD so many nypl events) and can filter for family-oriented events. Next week, I hope to have some keyword filters, and have a search that doesn't default to a map (think how Yelp lists restaurants when you search).
Cheers, until next week.

Budapest Festival Orchestra Cocoa Concert, 2/23

Accessibility at Lincoln Center and the Budapest Festival Orchestra bring Cocoa Concerts, a family concert Iván Fischer and the Budapest Festival Orchestra has specially designed to include young people within the autism spectrum and their family members. This one-hour concert consists of brief classical-music movements, performed by members of the world-renowned orchestra, in an inclusive and supported environment. While the visual tools, music and communication techniques are created with children with autism in mind, all young people with disabilities are welcomed.
The Budapest Festival Orchestra puts its heart and soul into organizing programs accessible to everyone, seeking to bring children with autism and development disabilities into the magical world of music. Conductor Iván Fischer and the BFO have been performing their Cocoa Concerts for years, and it is an important mission for BFO as these events enable children to enjoy enriching activities and to experience the joy and power of music.
The orchestra’s musicians will perform in various chamber-music setups and will show, through the deft selection of music, the exciting things instruments can do and how much fun it is to play music together. Before introducing the musicians, Iván Fischer will explain the upcoming piece and what details are worth paying attention to.
Before the concert begins, all audience members will receive a handout detailing the instruments used and the program, as well as colorful stickers to mark the finished pieces after every ovation, helping everyone remain engaged during the concert.
Following the concert, families are invited to join the musicians for hot cocoa.
Recommended for children aged 5 and up and their families. This program is specifically designed for children with autism, however, all are welcomed.
This performance is free, but space is limited.

Behind the Sun, Above the Moon Anthology Launch, 2/23

Come celebrate the book launch for the anthology Behind the Sun Above the Moon, a short story collection by nonbinary authors featuring SFF stories with a brief reading hosted by contributing authors Emmett Nahil and Sara Codair. Behind the Sun, Above the Moon centers trans and non-binary Own Voices writers, which enables them to imagine alternative futures and create fabulist worlds for themselves. Emmett Nahil (he/him) is a queer writer, artist, and game producer working on the indie game Love Shore (2021). He’s interested in intersectional activism, diverse representation for other queer Middle Easterners, and bringing more nuanced work to all kinds of weird literature. He has been known to favor horror, sci-fi, urban/modern fantasy, and trans-inclusive speculative fiction. Follow him on twitter, @_emmays. Sara Codair is the author over fifty short stories, which are packed with action, adventure, magic, and the bizarre. They partially owe their success to their faithful feline writing partner, Goose the Meowditor-In-Chief, who likes to “edit” their work by deleting entire pages. Sara’s debut novel, Power Surge, was published by NineStar Press on Oct. 1, 2018 and the sequel will be out sometime in 2020. Find Sara online at http://saracodair.com or @shatteredsmooth.

I would like to give a shoutout to u/thivnav for telling me about Flushing Town Hall. Also to u/mandonuts, for Public Theater (which should be here next week).
As a personal recommendation, I would suggest going to see Sorry to Bother You, which I thought was fantastic.
Again, you can search the events here. There are some more search filters. Notably, you can choose to omit public-run events (my GAD so many nypl events) and can filter for family-oriented events. Next week, I hope to have some keyword filters, and have a search that doesn't default to a map (think how Yelp lists restaurants when you search).
Cheers, until next week.

Our Fellow Americans: A Symposium on Public Conviction Registries, 1/25

Featuring a range of participants, the symposium builds upon the Chicago 400's ongoing advocacy work and explores the intersection of drawing and criminal justice reform, specifically as it relates to fear-based policies, the unintended consequences of public registration laws, and the expansion of the carceral state. Symposium Schedule 12–1pm We Carry the Laws Out: Opening Reception + Exhibition Walkthrough Join members of the Chicago 400 Art Committee for a walkthrough of the exhibition of drawings that diagram and depict how they follow the registry regime and housing and public space banishment laws. 1–1:45pm Meet the Chicago 400: Lessons in the Carceral State Learn more about the Chicago 400’s unique arts and organizing campaign to reform registry and banishment laws. The conversation will describe the organizing strategy, how art is a transformative part of the work, and advocacy for policies that prevent victimization, support survivors, and hold people accountable for harm. Participants include: Laurie Jo Reynolds, Coordinator, Chicago 400 Alliance; Members of the Chicago 400; Maya Szilak, Research and Policy Counsel, John Howard Association of Illinois 2:15pm–3:30pm Let Us Try to Explain This: New Yorkers Are Detained in Locked Facilities Because They Can’t Find Housing That Doesn’t Exist Visitors to the exhibit may wonder if there is a similar problem in New York, or a campaign to address it.

Participants include: Pauline Syrnik, Fellow, Legal Aid Society, Criminal Appeals Bureau; Allison Frankel, Aryeh Neier Fellow, Human Rights Watch/ACLU; Charles King, Chief Executive Officer, Housing Works; Robert Newman, Legal Aid Society, Criminal Defense Practice, Special Litigation Unit; and counsel for Richard Alcantara in Alcantara v.

He decided to challenge it, ultimately taking the case to the United States Supreme Court, which ruled unanimously that his First Amendment rights were violated. Using this rare victory as a point of departure, Goldberg will discuss strategies for addressing the expansive reach of the carceral state. Lancaster will historicize this discussion by exploring the complicated relationship between sexuality and punishment in our society, the modern suburban culture of fear, and the punitive logic that has put down deep roots in everyday American life. Participants include: David T. Goldberg, constitutional and public law litigator in the U.S. Supreme Court and federal and state appellate courts, and counsel for Lester Packingham in Packingham v. North Carolina; and Roger Lancaster, Professor of Anthropology and Cultural Studies, George Mason University, and author of Sex Panic and the Punitive State 5–6pm Closing Reception Join organizers, presenters, and other policy advocates for a closing reception of the show and the symposium. 6–8pm Next Steps Mixer and Dinner (organized by the New York Action Alliance) The New York Action Alliance and The Chicago 400 are co-hosting a “Next Steps” Mixer to bring together professionals, advocates, those directly impacted, and/or anyone else interested in helping New York and other states become leaders in transforming their public conviction registry laws.

2020 Census Fair, 1/21

We need you to make Brooklyn Count 100%! Did you know that Brooklyn is one of the areas most undercounted by the U.S. Census? The census is a count of every person in the United States, and takes place every 10 years. The Census determines federal funding for education, healthcare, public housing and our parks, as well as our number of representatives in Congress. It’s essential that every New Yorker is counted, and our voices are heard.
Why is the 2020 Census Critical for Brooklyn?
Every 10 years, every person living in the United States is counted to make sure we’re getting our fair share of federal funding for schools, roads, parks and other essential community resources. The count of each New Yorker represents $3,000 in federal funding: $650 billion per year distributed among 200 vital programs. There is almost no issue or program that is unaffected by the Census count. In the 2010 Census, Brooklyn was one of the most undercounted places in the entire United States. If Brooklyn is undercounted again, we could lose up to two seats in Congress, which means less of our voice in Washington on decisions that affect the future of our community. The 2020 Census is the first time you'll be able to respond online, in addition to phone and mail. The Census asks basic questions about your home in Brooklyn to make certain everyone is counted: a two-minute, 10 question survey. The Census will not ask for your personal information, such as your social security number, political beliefs or financial information. All information you share is kept confidential and protected by law.
Let's make certain Brooklyn counts 100% in 2020—RSVP today! Presented by Prospect Park Alliance in partnership with the U.S. Census Bureau, NYC Census 2020, the Brooklyn Borough President, the Brooklyn Community Foundation and community partners, including the Brooklyn NAACP.

2019.12.10 04:44 straydog77 The Gulf - The mystery of Flight 967 and Robert Vernon Spears

[Note: this post is largely based on information from “Self-Styled: Chasing Dr Robert Vernon Spears” by Alan C. Logan. I am not a shill but it is an interesting book.]

The Gulf

National Airlines Flight 967

1
On November 16, 1959, an airplane vanished over the Gulf of Mexico, with 42 people onboard. The flight had been on its way from Tampa, Florida, to New Orleans. The last radar contact with the aircraft--made at 12:55 am, over the open sea--had indicated the plane was still on course to its destination at the time that it vanished.
A massive search began. Rescuers went out in aircraft and boats, arriving before dawn and still combing the cold, rough seas as the sun came up. Early that morning, they spotted something: a small amount of debris, a large oil slick, and several floating bodies. Immediately they concentrated their efforts on this area, eventually retrieving:
"nine bodies, a portion of a tenth body, five life rafts, five life vests, and a highly diversified quantity of buoyant debris."
This debris included parts of seats, parts of overhead racks, upholstery, items of clothing, parts of leather suitcases, shoes, a pack of cigarettes. Despite intensive searches over the following months and years by the Coast Guard, Civil Aeronautics Board, the US Navy, the US Fish and Wildlife Service and private companies--the rest of the wreckage has never been found.
2
The Civil Aeronautics Board investigated the cause of the crash. Without an aircraft, this was no easy task.
Investigators determined that the flight crew was competent and experienced. The aircraft was airworthy at the time of departure and had an adequate amount of fuel. The weather conditions were good. Nearby radar stations reported "the flight was very close to being on course and on schedule.'' There were no apparent problems with the plane's operating equipment, no apparent discrepancies in the maintenance records, nothing mechanical which could "reasonably be linked to this accident".
“Nothing unusual was observed and no other objects were observed in the vicinity of the flight which indicated to the station that any difficulty was being encountered".
There was one witness--the attendant of a lookout tower 30 miles west of the crash site, who
“saw an unusual light in the sky [...] in the general direction of where [the flight] was lost and at about the time it was lost [...] the light was red or dark red, appearing suddenly, lasting “a couple of seconds” then producing a vertical white light which fell with a white trail [...] the initial red flash was “almost as big as the sun”.
Investigators were divided on whether the aircraft broke apart on impact with the water, or exploded in the air before it went down. The Coast Guard favored the former explanation, while the Air Force favored the latter. The autopsies of the bodies, all of which were identified by fingerprints, indicated that all had received traumatic injuries:
injuries indicated that all nine persons had been seated at the time the aircraft struck the water. No seat belt abrasions were found. The inertia of the bodies was plainly downward and forward and the forces at impact were severe. None of these nine persons had been subjected to fire or smoke before death, as demonstrated by low carboxyhemoglobin levels in blood and tissue. Some of the bodies showed distinct evidence of burning on portions exposed above their waterlines. ⁠A considerable amount of the floating debris also exhibited signs of burning but only above waterlines. [...] The fire marks on bodies and on debris were of the type caused exclusively by a flash surface fire, probably both hot and brief, upon impact with the water.
Acknowledging "there is little or no physical evidence on which to explain this accident", the CAB was forced to conclude, after nearly three years of investigation:
Because of lack of physical evidence, the probable cause of this accident is unknown.
3
One part of the investigation focused on the passengers. The only noteworthy observation from the gate agent in Tampa was "a man in a brown or tan suit, carrying a newspaper but no luggage, hurrying toward the Flight 967 gate right at closing time". The agent's attention was drawn elsewhere, however, and he never noticed if the man boarded the flight or not.
Carefully the investigators went through the flight manifest. Initially, there was some speculation based on the fact that a noted Chicago mobster--Ellis “Itchy” Mandel--was on the flight. But this investigation led nowhere.
Among the 42 names of the dead--there was a passenger named Dr Robert Vernon Spears--a distinguished naturopath from Dallas, Texas.
There was nothing immediately remarkable about Dr Spears. 65 years old at the time of the crash, he had been the national secretary of the National Association of Naturopathic Physicians and the head of the Texas Naturopath Association. Photographs depicted Dr Spears as a plump, jovial man--in a checkered suit and round spectacles, he embodied the image of a kindly family physician. Dr Spears lived in an affluent suburb of Dallas, and he and his wife were relatively well-known in the city’s social circles.
For weeks Dr Spears was mourned along with the rest of the victims. His wife, who had recently given birth to twins, even collected a partial payout from his $120,000 life insurance policy.
This all changed two months after the crash, on January 20, 1960, when Robert Vernon Spears was arrested in Phoenix, Arizona, in possession of a stolen car--a salmon-pink Plymouth. Dr Spears (who was calling himself Dr Rhodes) had tried to file down the numbers on the car’s registration numbers and had even used dynamite to damage the car's crankcase.
The car belonged to a man named Al Taylor, a longtime friend of Dr Spears, who had been the best man at his wedding.
Curiously, Al Taylor had recently been reported missing. In fact, he had vanished on November 16, 1959 - the very same day that airplane went down in the Gulf.

Spears and Taylor

4
At the time of his disappearance, Al Taylor lived in Tampa and worked as a salesman for the Pioneer Tire Company. By all accounts, he was in financial difficulties, and had many debts. The day before the fateful flight, Taylor had visited his ex-wife Alice Steel Taylor at her home, looking for their adult son Junior, who wasn’t home. “He kept checking his watch,” his ex-wife later said, “and looked anxious to leave". After he left, he phoned again three times, again asking for Junior. Then he abruptly told her was headed to Atlanta the next day, to look for a job there. He asked her not to tell Junior this. Taylor apparently then he called his boss at the tire company and asked for the next day off work.
Though no longer married to Al Taylor, Alice later told reporters they had been amicably divorced, and were still close. After not hearing from Taylor for a few days, and discovering he had not showed up for work, Alice became worried. She contacted his work--they knew nothing. She later determined that Taylor’s brown jacket was missing from his apartment, though everything else seemed untouched, “just as if he had stepped out to buy a newspaper”.
The former Mrs Taylor was becoming increasingly frantic. When she read that Dr Robert Spears had been a victim of the air disaster, she became even more curious. Spears had been a close friend of her husband, and she had never considered him to be a good influence. She called Spears’s wife (who was still grieving at that time) and asked if she had seen or heard from Taylor. Mrs Spears replied that she had not.
Alice was not to be dissuaded. She was an unflappable woman in her late fifties, with a fondness for ostentatious feathered hats, pearl necklaces, and large brooches. She later said she had a “premonition” that her husband had been on that flight, and she never wavered from it. She received a court order to open his post office box. There she discovered a receipt addressed to their son Junior.
It revealed that Al Taylor had bought a $37,500 life insurance policy-- in Tampa airport--at 12:16 am, just nine minutes before Flight 967 departed. It had his signature on it.
[Some context here: In the 50s, life insurance vending machines were commonplace in airports. Playing upon people's uncertainties about air-travel, insurance companies did quite well off them. Mr Taylor would need to have put just $1.50 into that machine to secure that $37,500 insurance policy (equivalent to more than $300,000 today).]
With this information, Mrs Taylor's lawyer called the Tampa police department and the newspapers. She told them all about her missing husband and his missing pink Plymouth, which sparked a nationwide search. The FBI got involved. Debt collectors got involved--suddenly "every repo man in America" was looking for a pink Plymouth.
The media, of course, went straight to Dr Spears’s wife. These were her statements:
"If my husband was on that plane, I can accept it although my life will be hard. If he were not, I don't know anything I could do about it.” [Here she began choking back tears] "I know one thing, we had planned on celebrating my son's birthday and we had bigger plans for Christmas. I know that he loved those babies and that if he were alive I am sure I would have heard from him. I believe him lost in the crash."
That was before Spears was found in Arizona with Taylor’s car. On January 20, when she was informed that her husband was alive, Mrs Spears struck a very different tone. A reporter happened to be in her home at the time. Clearly in shock, she turned to the reporter and said:
"What can I say? I told him it wouldn't work!"
5
According to the Senior Passenger Agent for National Airlines, there were no established procedures in 1959 for determining if a reporting passenger was the same person for whom the reservation was made. Sometimes passengers even boarded the wrong planes by accident. At that time there was also very little airport security.
Clearly, Dr Spears had not been on that plane. But where had he been? And who was he?
He had actually been hiding out with an old associate named William Turska (also a naturopath), in Turska’s remote bungalow in the desert 40 miles from Phoenix, Arizona. During this time, Spears had briefly visited his wife (on January 7)--so her answers in her first interview were a lie. The FBI had found Dr Spears through an ex-wife of Spears’s associate Mr Turska. The FBI then tracked him down through surveillance.
The FBI discovered there was much more to the kindly old Dr Spears than met the eye. He was not a licensed MD, and his license to practice naturopathy had been revoked in 1957. In fact, it was revealed that Spears was facing charges for performing abortions--which was illegal at the time, and had been set to stand trial on December 3, 1959. It turned out he had a long criminal record--a string of confidence schemes, forgery, and thefts under a variety of aliases. The man was a con artist. Spears had been in and out of jail in multiple states (even mistakenly deported to Canada on one occasion). He had "an uncanny ability to move on at a moment's notice". After several decades of false names, new identities, fresh starts, abandoned wives, abandoned lives--he had spent the last years running "a lucrative underground abortion business".
Perhaps most bizarrely of all--Dr Spears was an expert in hypnosis. He had hypnotized his own wife for the births of their children. Two dozen books on hypnosis had been found in Spears's home in Dallas. Mrs Taylor recalled that Dr Spears had held an unnatural sway over her former husband. She had never liked Spears. “I loathed him,” she said, and had always considered him a bad influence on Al. Recently, she said, Al Taylor had been strangely depressed and withdrawn, but his mood only lifted when he talked to Spears. Suddenly his strange behavior all made sense to her--her hapless ex-husband was a puppet, under Dr Spears’s spell. She put it bluntly to the Dallas Morning News:
"I believe that Spears hypnotized [Taylor] into doing it."
The FBI, while stopping short of the Svengali hypothesis, acknowledged that "Spears may have had someone travel for him to collect a large insurance policy for the benefit of his young wife".
A theory also emerged that Spears was connected to another unexplained air disaster just months later. Before the crash, Spears had briefly sought advice on his pending abortion case from a New York City lawyer named Julian Frank. On January 6, 1960 (less than two months after Flight 967) Frank was on board a National Airlines flight which was blown up by dynamite over North Carolina, resulting in 34 deaths. Frank’s body was found with “injuries … significantly different from and much more extensive than the other passengers”, injuries which “were inconsistent with the type of injury usually incurred in an aircraft accident”. Frank was covered by $900,000 in life insurance policies at the time of his death, and had also been under investigation for corruption. That crash remains officially “unexplained” also. Spears himself apparently admitted to having met with this man in New York City. If Dr Spears was somehow responsible for both incidents, that would make him responsible for the loss of 76 lives, making him one of the most prolific killers in American history.
In spite of this string of suspicious details, the airplane was still missing, therefore there was no hope of charging Spears with anything relating to the crash. Upon his arrest in Arizona, the FBI charged him with transporting a stolen vehicle beyond state lines. The combination of the auto theft charge and his existing abortion charge eventually got him ten years in prison.
It has been claimed that Dr Spears tried to access a vial of cyanide before his sentencing--but some have disputed this. As he was leaving the courthouse after his first hearing, he was observed to be whistling.
6
Spears disagreed with the characterization of himself as a sinister hypnotic puppetmaster. This is the story Spears gave after his arrest:
He said he had been in Tampa and was planning on heading back to Dallas on November 16. Taylor also wanted to go to Dallas, to see a doctor about a neck injury, and to get away from his irritating ex-wife. Spears said “he begrudgingly gave his Flight 967 ticket to Al Taylor, a friend who couldn't face a long drive to Dallas. Al Taylor asked him to drive the Plymouth to Dallas where they were scheduled to meet up. He heard about the Flight 967 disaster along the way, and although he was devastated to think his old pal had perished, Spears simply decided it was an opportunity for a fresh start."
When Spears met secretly with his wife on January 7, he had reportedly given her the same story. As Mrs Spears described it,
"He saw an opportunity to leave me and the babies with some financial security. He felt he had been a burden and it was a chance to free us of that burden.”
Mrs Spears said that when he came to see her, Spears was sad about Taylor’s death. "I asked him if anything had been done to plane and he said no". She also said she had begged him to turn himself in but he refused.
7
Alice Steel Taylor had long claimed that her ex-husband was nothing more than an unwitting “puppet” in Spears’s schemes. Yet cracks soon appeared in this image too.
It turned out Mr Taylor was not just a gullible friend of Dr Spears--he was a criminal himself, Spears’ partner in crime for many years. The two had met in the Missouri State Penitentiary, back when Taylor was still known as Albert O. Thompson. Taylor, investigators discovered, was wanted in Washington DC and Philadephlia under a variety of assumed names at the time of his disappearance. Taylor had also been married before his marriage to Alice. After forging several checks, he had skipped town and completely abandoned his first family. Over the course of their long friendship, Spears and Taylor had worked together on confidence schemes throughout the USA.
Letters between the two men, which Mrs Taylor believed to be evidence of a skilful manipulation by Dr Spears, could also simply indicate a strong friendship. They even raise the possibility that the two con-men may have been plotting something together. Remember Julian Frank, the corrupt lawyer who allegedly blew up the other aircraft? According to Alan C. Logan’s book, Taylor had also met with Frank in New York (though Logan does not explain why). In one letter, Spears urged Taylor not to use his real name in future communications, but to refer to him as “F. Massey”. This is also unexplained.
Three days before the crash, (the day Spears had arrived in Tampa) Taylor and Spears were seen together enjoying a lavish meal in the Hillsboro Hotel. According to the hotel staff, Taylor was talking about boarding a flight to Dallas--the waitress specifically remembered making small talk about Dallas. That day the two men also reportedly met with a man they referred to in letters only as "the fellow". The next morning (November 14), Taylor and Spears were together again--Taylor’s son Junior saw them drinking and laughing in Spears’s hotel room, in a celebratory mood. According to Junior, Taylor was carrying over $600 in cash--a lot of money at the time, especially for a man in serious debt.
Despite these strange details, Mrs Taylor stuck to her story--her ex-husband had been hypnotized. Meanwhile she campaigned in the courts to have him declared legally dead (which would give her son access to the life insurance money). She ultimately succeeded, and her son Junior received an undisclosed settlement. According to Logan’s book, Mrs Taylor was “media savvy”, and exaggerated her closeness with Taylor before his disappearance. They had been divorced longer than she claimed, and the divorce had been far from amicable.
Though he was legally dead, many had begun to doubt that Taylor was ever on that flight at all. A “mystery woman” told a local Tampa newspaper that she had had a relationship with Taylor shortly before his disappearance, and did not believe he was dead. Another friend of Taylor reportedly told police that he had seen Al Taylor on Christmas Eve, 1959, in a crowd of Christmas shoppers in Nashville, Tennessee. He was "100 percent" certain it was Taylor, and when he called out "Hey Al" he said the man turned, but then hastily slipped away into the crowd.
Police seriously looked into the possibility that Al Taylor may still be alive, even working with Mexican law enforcement to explore the possibility that he had fled south of the border. Tampa Police Detective John C. Daniels was among those who did not buy the hypnosis theory:
”Taylor was in debt over his head. We know he was at the airport that night, at 12:16 am. but he would have had to have done some rushing to get aboard the plane because it taxied away at 12:25 am. [...] Both men were in the confidence rackets at one time. Taylor's not going to let himself get talked into something as crazy as getting on a plane that's about to blow up. Who knows, Taylor might show up one day, alive and healthy."
Alan C. Logan’s book also cites a vague remark by Mr Turska that Spears was “not alone” when he showed up in Arizona after the crash. Citing reports that Spears may have gone to Yuma while hiding out in Arizona, Logan notes, “At that time the long US-Mexico border to the west and south of Yuma was largely unpatrolled.”

Turska

8
Questions also surround the third man involved in all this--William Turska, the naturopath who Spears went to stay with in the immediate aftermath of the crash. Turska participated in a few interviews about the case--notably in Life Magazine--in which he played the part of a bemused bystander.
In fact, Turska had also been facing abortion charges in November 1959 (though Turska’s charges were later dropped). Turska also gave wildly conflicting accounts of his involvement in the affair.
At first, Turska downplayed his association with Spears, saying they were merely acquaintances and that Spears had showed up out of the blue. Turska claimed at the time he did not even know about the airplane crash. "We don't get newspapers out here,” he told reporters. He also told them that "after he left I found a case of hidden dynamite". Yet as Logan points out, the crate of dynamite found on Turska’s property was actually purchased in Tucson, and Spears had no way of getting into Tuscon from Turska's compound unless Turska himself drove him.
Turska claimed that once he found out about the plane crash fiasco, he immediately told Spears to leave, and then went straight to see his attorney.
In a second interview, however, Turska told a different story. In that interview, he said he knew about the plane crash, admitted taking Spears to see his wife, and said that Spears had confided in him that he wanted to start a “new life”:
”He wanted to change his character,” Turska said, “change his fingerprints, change everything.”
In that interview, Turska said he now thought Spears had been lying to hm, and implied Spears's wife was in on the whole scam--accusing her of faking her reaction to seeing him.
As it turned out, William Turska was not a model citizen himself. He was arrested for assault and battery for his wife in 1971. He also had convictions for drunk driving and drug possession. He ran unsuccessfully for Idaho County Coroner in 1972 on the Republican ticket. "Turska was the one to fear, not Bob,” Mrs Spears once said. Logan alleges "Turska was planning his own exit strategy" before the crash--in September 1959 he had put up his Arizona property for sale: "priced to sell, owner leaving state".

Spears Reveals "The Truth"

9
In Autumn 1960, while in jail, Spears agreed to a taped interview with reporter Ed Barker. In this interview, he told a completely different story about what had happened.
According to this new story, in November 1959 Spears was extremely worried about the upcoming abortion trial in Los Angeles. He planned to intimidate the witness in that case somehow with a bomb (not to kill her but to intimidate her). He needed to get the dynamite from Tulsa to Dallas. He said he had persuaded Al Taylor to take the dynamite on the airplane by promising to pay him $10,000 to do it. Taylor would fly and Spears would drive. Taylor apparently agreed to this, and boarded the flight that night with nothing more than a briefcase containing the dynamite. Spears said:
“If the business did detonate during the flight, it had to be by accident [...] I’m still of the opinion that the plane--something else happened to it”.
As for the insurance policy taken out by Taylor, Spears said:
”Taylor was sort of a nut on insurance. I can understand him taking out an insurance policy. But even then there would be no point in destroying the plane or himself. I am quite sure that Taylor would not have exploded it.”
This new story was made public in 1963. Spears immediately said he had made the whole thing up after the reporter had “pressured him” to tell him something new. Taylor’s son Junior dismissed the story. The prosecutor in Spears’s abortion case pointed out they already had sworn affidavits from the abortion witnesses, which they could simply have read out in court. The notion of intimidating the witness thus made no sense. “His story is absurd,” the prosecutor said.
10
Alan C. Logan is among those who dismiss this second story as fiction. Logan seems to be a firm defender of Spears. As he said in a recent interview:
"The more that I learned through the research about Spears, even though this guy had an incredibly profound criminal past [...] he never had any history of violence at all. Nothing. Of all the prison terms he served, he never had a single infraction of violence. [...] Then you also have to think about the fact that Al Taylor was his friend since 1928. [...] for all those decades and all the different things they got up to. To me it just doesn’t add up that Spears is going to tell his best friend of many decades, a man with essentially no history of violence, to take on this package like it’s Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner.”
Logan points out that much of the public demonization of Spears resulted from the fact that he performed abortions--something that is viewed very differently in today’s political discourse. He also cites the testimony of Spears’s wife, neighbors and friends who spoke of him as a “lovely person” and a “gentleman” and expressed “utter disbelief that he would be capable of doing something so heinous as taking down a passenger aircraft”.
Logan says Taylor’s ex-wife was media-savvy--and points out that she had a potential financial motive to portray Taylor as an unwitting passenger on that flight. Logan asks a number of questions--whether Taylor could have planned a murder-suicide without Spears’s knowledge, whether Taylor boarded the flight at all, whether the last-minute insurance policy was an intentional red herring to “throw off investigators” and “utterly confuse everyone”?
Personally I suspect that Logan has at least partially fallen prey to the charms of Dr Spears--I highly doubt Taylor is living it up in South America--but his questions are interesting ones.

An Aviation Accident

11
With so many tantalizing details about Spears and Taylor, it’s easy to forget we know next to nothing about this plane crash. Investigators found less than 1% of its structural components and no conclusive evidence that a bomb was used. The conclusion of the Official CAB Accident Report (June 11, 1962):
The Board, with the aid of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, has thoroughly investigated Mr Spears’ activities in order to determine whether they might have had any bearing upon the accident. We have been unable to find any such relationship.
Note the use of the word “accident”, which is used throughout the report. Could it be that in spite of this vast, tangled web--this was just another plane crash? A tragic accident due to some unforeseen mechanical malfunction or even pilot error? And just a freak coincidence that a couple of conmen just happened to have a ticket? And that they happened to know a seedy lawyer who (allegedly) blew himself up a month later? Without the plane’s black box, it is impossible to rule this out.
The theory of a Svengalian puppet master was convenient not just for the former Mrs Taylor. It was also convenient for National Airlines. It is perhaps no coincidence that a PR man from National Airlines wrote a book in 1963 accusing Spears of being responsible for the crash. As Logan points out, in the first three weeks of 1960 alone there had been four major airline crashes. “Just a few years before,” Logan writes, “on Valentine's Day 1953, a National Airlines flight on the very same run--from Tampa to New Orleans--also plunged into the Gulf. […] The final ruling was “probable severe turbulence.””

The Yet Yawning Gulf

12
There are a thousand ways of connecting the dots, and a thousand other explanations out there. Who hatched the plot--Spears? Taylor? Turska? Mrs Taylor? Mrs Spears? Mr Frank? A rival airline company? Extraterrestrials? Someone connected to the abortion case? The mafia? Or was it all a freak accident?
The answer is down there, somewhere.

2019.12.04 01:10 Ainsoph777 The Jesuit ties to armaments maker Lockheed Martin

Lockheed Martin is a very effective weapons manufacturer for the Vatican which seeks to build worldwide "security states" based on military and police power. Given that The Military Police Corps--the uniformed law enforcement branch of the United States Army uses the Roman military fasces right on the center of its seal,( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military_Police_Corps_%28United_States%29#/media/File:USAMPC-Regimental-Insignia.png ) Lockheed Martin should be very giving to the Roman Catholic Church. As the Washington Post mentioned in 2018, Lockheed Martin got $35.2 billion from taxpayers in 2017. That’s more than many federal agencies. To start, back in 1958 Der Spiegal, the German magazine claimed that the Society of Jesus, a.k.a the Jesuits had a interest in Lockheed. Quoting from that article (which I have reprinted in full) : https://www.reddit.com/Jesuitworldordecomments/9m341u/der_spiegal_article_august_8_1958_on_vatican/
" The Jesuits are also involved in the major US steel companies Republic Steel and National Steel, as well as in the four major US aircraft plants: Boeing , Lockheed , Douglas and Curtiss-Wright. They also control the independent petroleum company "Phillips Oil Co." in Galveston, Texas, and the Creole Petroleum Co., which has extensive concessions in South American Venezuela. "

In the book Hot Money and the Politics of Debt, R.T. Naylor, 1987, pg 154, we read : " In the search for military contracts, Lockheed scrubbed bribe money for Italian politicians through a Liechtenstein anstalt. Funds for Japanese politicians took two routes. Some were carried to Hong Kong by cash courier - a Spanish Jesuit priest - for laundering through obliging banks. The second route was by telex to the Hong Kong office of Deak & Co., the foreign-exchange dealership set up by a former OSS China operative. The telex order was converted into cash and taken to Kodama, who was busy funding the rise and spread of the Moonies." https://archive.org/details/hotmoneyandthepoliticsofdebt/page/n6

Paul Colonna , doubtlessly a member of the Roman Black nobility Colonna family is now a highup executive (CIO) at Lockheed Martin!
"Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] has appointed Paul Colonna as president and chief investment officer (CIO) of Lockheed Martin Investment Management Company (LMIMCo), effective Jan. 7, 2019. Colonna succeeds Chris Li, who retired from the position earlier this year. Colonna, 50, will be responsible for $70 billion in retirement trust assets and all facets of the investment strategy, portfolio management, manager selection, asset allocation, risk management, and due diligence for these trust assets, to help LMIMCo and Lockheed Martin meet their goals.“Paul is an experienced investment officer and will provide the vision, leadership and management expertise for Lockheed Martin’s investments,” said Bruce Tanner, Lockheed Martin executive vice president and chief financial officer.Prior to joining Lockheed Martin, Colonna was the executive vice president and CIO of Fundamental Equities for State Street Global Advisors. While there, he managed $30 billion in assets and led a team of 80 investment professionals. Prior to that, he was the president and CIO for Public Investments for GE Asset Management where he managed more than $100 billion in assets across public fixed income and equities. “I am very honored to be joining the team at Lockheed Martin and look forward to continuing the strong culture of providing superior financial outcomes for the company and the plan beneficiaries,” said Colonna. Colonna received his Master of Business Administration from University of Maryland and his bachelor’s degree from Villanova University(Catholic)." https://news.lockheedmartin.com/2018-12-17-Lockheed-Martin-Names-Paul-Colonna-as-President-and-Chief-Investment-Officer-of-Lockheed-Martin-Investment-Management-Company

Lockheed Martin has given at least 1.5 million $ to Jesuit Santa Clara University as reported by BizJournals up to the year 2002. Students at the engineering school at Jesuit Santa Clara now get the "Lockheed Martin Scholarship". Here is the reprint of the story titled Santa Clara University gets Lockheed Martin gift.
: " Lockheed Martin Corp. has given $50,000 to Santa Clara University to support annual scholarships for engineering students, especially those from low- and middle-income families. The endowed scholarship program, named the Lockheed Martin Corporation Perpetual Fund, is a gift from Lockheed Martin Space Systems Co.'s Missile & Space Operations headquartered in Sunnyvale. "Lockheed Martin has always been a great supporter of our programs and a good corporate citizen in Silicon Valley," says Terry Shoup, dean of the SCU School of Engineering. "We are pleased and grateful for this new partnership that will benefit our students." Lockheed Martin's corporate giving has totaled nearly $1.5 million to the private Jesuit university since 1967, including over $700,000 to the engineering school, $360,000 to the Leavey School of Business, and $200,000 to the Daly Science Building. Currently, SCU's involvement with the corporation includes research projects with Lockheed Martin engineers and technologists, including satellite/robot automation. Also, Christopher Kitts, SCU engineering adjunct assistant professor, is working with the corporation on a project involving advanced design environments to be used for developing satellite systems."
https://www.bizjournals.com/sanjose/stories/2002/02/18/daily64.html

Here is some of the bio from the Jesuit Santa Clara website of Christopher Kitts. " Dr. Christopher Kitts is an Associate Professor at Santa Clara University where he serves as the Director of the Robotic Systems Laboratory and as the Associate Dean of Research and Faculty Development for the School of Engineering. He is also the Director of the Center for Robotic Exploration and Space Technologies, a multi-institution consortium of academic institutions focusing on aerospace research and education and which is located at the NASA Ames Research Park....... At Santa Clara(Jesuit), Prof. Kitts runs an aggressive field robotics program specializing in the design, control and teleoperation of highly capable robotic system for scientific discovery, technology validation, and engineering education. These systems include underwater vehicles, clusters of land rovers, autonomous aircraft, and microspacecraft. These systems provide unique experimental opportunities for demonstrating research innovations in multi-robot systems, model-based anomaly management, and other research topics within the Lab. This program has been funded at a level of millions of dollars over the past five years and includes sponsors such as NSF, NASA, NOAA, the US Geological Survey, the US Air Force, the US Navy, BMW, Lockheed-Martin, Nike, and Intel. " https://www.scu.edu/engineering/faculty/kitts-christophe

Lockheed Martin in 2012 got into a partnership with the Catholic University of America! " The Catholic University of America is among more than 100 institutions across the nation that have teamed up with the USA Science & Engineering Festival hosted by Lockheed Martin. The festival - the largest celebration of science and engineering in the country - will take place at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., on April 28 and 29. " https://communications.catholic.edu/news/2012/03/nifty-fifty.html

The same year (2012) Lockheed Martin got into a partnership with Jesuit Le Moyne College! " Syracuse, NY SRC, Inc., formerly Syracuse Research Corporation, Lockheed Martin and Le Moyne College(Jesuit) have partnered to develop a certificate program in Government Systems Management..... “The Government Systems Management program is an exciting partnership for Le Moyne College students and the government contracting community. Developing the program with our partners at SRC and Lockheed Martin has been a wonderful experience,” said Dr. Martha Grabowski, chair of the Business Administration department at Le Moyne College.

Lockheed Martin has also recently began to work with Jesuit Georgetown University (2015) in order to provide courses on A.I., which as a whole will end up enslaving mankind. Quoting from the website of bsa.org we read.
" "To empower more young women to pursue degrees and careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields, BSA The Software Alliance, Lockheed Martin, and Georgetown University are sponsoring the Washington, DC, area’s inaugural Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program. The Girls Who Code program, kicking off June 24, will bring 60 young women from throughout the DC region to Georgetown University’s downtown campus for seven weeks of intensive instruction in computing skills, ranging from mobile app development to web design to robotics....... "We're honored to partner in bringing this exceptional program to young women in our local community and to help these girls pursue and develop their interests in technology and education," said Lisa Singh, Georgetown University Professor of Computer Science, and co-founder of Georgetown Women Coders, a campus group that teaches women to code and now engages more than 500 students, faculty and staff........ BSA, Lockheed Martin, and Georgetown University(Jesuit) join companies such as Accenture, Adobe, AIG, AT&T, Electronic Arts, Facebook, GE, Google, IBM, Microsoft, Pixar Animation Studios, The Honest Company, and Twitter in the critical movement to close the gender gap in the computing and technology sector." https://www.bsa.org/knode/35456

2019.10.22 18:00 SaintRidley Wrestling Observer Rewind ★ Feb. 16, 1987

Going through old issues of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter and posting highlights in my own words, continuing in the footsteps of daprice82. For anyone interested, I highly recommend signing up for the actual site at f4wonline and checking out the full archives.
FUTURE YEARS ARCHIVE:
The Complete Observer Rewind Archive by daprice82
1-5-1987 1-12-1987 1-18-1987 2-2-1987
2-9-1987 - - -
  • With Crockett expanding its schedule to compete with most of the remaining old NWA territories, there are talks of a “new” NWA forming. Several promoters are talking about the possibility. At the forefront is Florida’s Duke Keomuka, who is trying to get the Pacific Northwest, Central States (Bob Geigel is bringing it back as an independent entity on March 1, y’all), Continental, and WCCW offices to join up with him. If history teaches us anything, cooperation is not something wrestling promoters are good at, so Dave doesn’t see anything substantial happening. Sure, they could trade talent and recognize a single world champion and assist each other against threatening WWF/JCP/UWF cards, but looking at what Florida/PNW/WCCW/Continental/Central States have, it’s not much. If Florida needs help running a show against Crockett, what in the world can PNW/Central States even offer? And no way will Fritz Von Erich get involved if they don’t recognize Kevin as the world champ, but would he really be willing to send Kevin to Kansas City for a show with only 200 people? Dave’s skeptical about anything real coming out of this, but he does figure we’re likely to see some talent trades between Florida and Alabama and maybe Brody and Kevin Von Erich will work the Florida territory now and again.
  • Wrestlemania hype is in full gear now that Andre vs. Hogan has officially been announced. Dave should have a complete card in a week, but he knows there will be twelve matches and eleven of them will be announced by February 21st. The last one announced will be a gimmick match of some kind (and before anyone suggests it involves Vince wrestling, he’s got more important things to do on a show of this magnitude). The show should be about 3 hours long and the names of the celebrities involved should start coming in soon. You can bet all but a few of the wrestlers will be paid less than any of the celebrities.
  • UWF did their tag team tournament and Chris Adams & Terry Taylor won the belts. The show was really good, but the crowds are still suffering in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Adams returned to the ring on this taping just two days since getting out of prison, and somehow managed to look in better shape and hadn’t missed a beat in the ring. So Chris Adams and King Parsons teamed together and after their semi-final victory they did an angle where Adams didn’t want to win by countout and the team split, with Parsons yelling at Adams “What’s the problem with you? Have you been in the slammer too long?” Anyway, in the other semi-final, Sting & Rick Steiner beat Terry Taylor & Sam Houston. Because of the split in the Adams/Parsons team, they did a coin flip where the winner of the flip could choose a new partner. Adams wins the flip and picks Savannah Jack (Dave quips that Adams has definitely been in the slammer too long) and Parsons assaults Jack and slams him into the ring post, so we have to start from scratch. Anyway, Adams picks Terry Taylor now, and this is how we get Taylor & Adams winning a tournament where they were not teaming together. The final was said to be a first rate match.
WATCH: UWF Tag Team Tournament Highlights
  • After the WTBS special Crockett put on for Feb. 7, there can be no doubt why WWF is number 1 over JCP and why Hogan is a bigger draw than Flair. Dave just rips this show to shreds, saying that while he’s a fan, it was a waste of two and a half hours aside from the Magnum T.A. interview. The Crocketts didn’t hype this on their regular WTBS show, so they probably weren’t super high about it. Everything about this was just horrible. “Superstars in Supertowns on the Superstation” is a terrible name and makes you sound low-rent no matter how much it’s wrestling and carnival vernacular to call a city a town. Frankly, it’s insulting to the average viewer living in the cities to hear their city called a town. Just shows how in the bubble of the business the Crocketts really are. Commentary wasn’t good either. Nor were the matches. The best match on the 7 match special was Ric Flair vs. Nikita Koloff in a no DQ match, which Dave rates 3 stars and says he had no problems with...until he got some phone calls from people in Baltimore and Richmond who saw the exact same match with the exact same finish and the exact same moves in all the exact same order the night before the special. You can’t say McMahon is exposing the business and then turn around and do that.
  • Dave has a correction. Last week he said Dynamite was literally taken from traction straight to Tampa for his tag title loss. Apparently he had been out of traction for a week and was able to take “brief walks” but was still in no condition to wrestle. It’s clear WWF wants the Bulldogs out of the spotlight. If they wanted to keep the Bulldogs in the spotlight they could have done an angle where a doctor refused to clear Dynamite, leading to the titles being stripped. That gets you an emotional scene, a tournament, a lot of heat behind a return push for the Bulldogs when Dynamite can wrestle again, and the sympathy angle with the fans knowing they never lost the titles to begin with. Compare that to what actually happened, Jimmy Hart tapping Dynamite and him falling to the ground for the whole match, and yeah.
  • Mike Von Erich is on trial on charges of assaulting a doctor in 1985. If convicted he faces a $1,000 fine or a year in jail. The prosecutors claim Mike punched the doctor in the face, breaking his jaw and two of his teeth. The defense claims Mike accidentally hit the doctor when the doctor threatened to kick him out of the hospital and punched Mike in his injured shoulder. This trial is getting daily coverage in all three major Dallas-Fort Worth papers and on tv at a time when the Von Erichs can ill-afford to have their image tarnished further.
  • JCP and WWF will be running shows against each other in Ontario on February 15. This will be JCP’s big debut in Ontario and they’re set for a big gate. Angelo Mosca managed a $150,000 gate without tv last year, and they’re billing this show as Moscamania II. Only issue is they forgot to run it by the Ontario Boxing and Wrestling Commission. In response, Jack Tunney booked a show for that afternoon for WWF and a Toronto show for that evening, clearing everything with the Commission. The Commission didn’t approve Moscamania II until Mosca went to the media and started making noise, after which the commission backed off and approved the shows JCP will be running from the 15-17th. Very interesting to see how this turns out.
  • Hulk Hogan has issued a correction on his life story. He currently claims to be a finance graduate from the University of South Florida, and says that he worked at a bank and decided to become a wrestler when he saw how big the checks were the wrestlers had him deposit. USF folks do say a Mr. Terry Bollea attended the university, but he dropped out after his sophomore year. Dave remembers before this most recent revision how Hulk claimed that he graduated from USF and when called out by a reporter on there being no record of him graduating, Hulk claimed he finished three credits shy of graduating. Say your prayers, eat your vitamins, and lie through your teeth, little Hulksters.
  • With all the focus on Wrestlemania, expect WWF live crowds to be lower leading in and coming out, unless Duggan really takes off. Hogan working fewer shows will be a blow, and Piper looking like he’s at least going to actually take the summer off doesn’t help either. On the plus side, Bruno Sammartino just sold out Boston Gardens for WWF. First time WWF has sold out the Gardens since 1985; the closest since then has been a Hogan vs. Savage headline that came real close but didn’t do it. If they’d put it in the Gardens, the Hogan/Orndorff and Hogan/Kamala programs would surely have sold out.
  • Crockett is mounting invasions of several territories, including Pacific Northwest and Alabama. Dave wonders if everyone who called Vince a bad guy for running shows in other people’s territories two years ago will say the same about the Crocketts. As far as Dave is concerned, neither of them are bad guys for expanding into areas that want to see what they’re producing. Alabama should be interesting, since fans there have been told for months now that Bob Armstrong is suspended for life (which is why he wrestled under a hood as “The Bullet”) but will now be wrestling without the hood on tv and in Alabama under JCP.
  • Art Barr, the son of Sandy Barr and little brother of Jimmy Jack Funk, has begun wrestling in the Pacific Northwest territory. This is two months earlier than Wikipedia has his debut as, for the record.
  • [WCCW] Dave’s been trying not to make fun of Dingo Warrior, but he had to share this. On Pro Wrestling This Week, Dingo showed a new level of skill in a match with Al Madril. Warrior threw the first bolo punch Dave has ever seen that had no shoulder rotation whatsoever.
WATCH: Dingo Warrior vs. Al Madril - the bolo punch wind up begins at 9:07, but the actual punch shows no shoulder rotation at all
  • [Memphis] Jerry Lawler should be back in March. His surgery was minor and unrelated to wrestling. They’re coming up with an angle for him to return with, but all the guys he wants to team with against Tommy Rich and Austin Idol are currently signed to other promotions.
  • Kevin Sullivan is doing some funny stuff down in Florida. He’s been feuding with Badnews Allen and his interviews have been off the wall. He’s saying promoters are prejudiced against Kareem Muhammad because they’ve discovered he and Muhammad are cousins, that Muhammad has “almost natural” 24 inch arms, and that Badnews Allen is really an American Indian. TV announcer John Heath is unintentionally hilarious in his role as interviewer, making everything that much better. They did a skit where Sullivan wanted to visit where Allen grew up, so he and Muhammad are standing by a highway with a sign reading “Harlem” trying to hitchhike. Nobody was giving them rides, so Sullivan was flipping off and trying to kick the cars as they drove by.
  • Sumo wrestler John Tenta will debut in All Japan in March or April. He was supposed to debut in December, but broke his leg training. There’s also a complication because he broke up with his girlfriend (who is Japanese). He had been engaged to marry her, and that would have allowed him to work year-round with no problems, but now he needs approval from the government to work and they haven’t given it to him yet.
  • Bam Bam Bigelow has debuted in New Japan and is drawing well for them. He and Inoki have been mixing it up, and they’ve even been bringing in Iron Mike Sharpe as a manager for Bigelow.
  • Reader Grant Zwarych, who today is the source for most of the really early Observer back issues like the ones I’m citing here, has a correction for Dave. In the January 12 issue, Dave talked about breaking through the ring as something new. Apparently there was a cage match between Dusty Rhodes and either Kevin Sullivan or Purple Haze a few years ago, and Haze or Sullivan broke through the ring to interfere on the other's behalf. It’s a favorite of Sullivan’s booking style. So now we have the direct ancestor to the finish of the Vince vs. Steve Austin match from St. Valentine’s Day Massacre.
  • Reader Gary Fishman writes in saying there’s no way Vince will “gobble up all of wrestling." He knows Southern fans aren’t going to swallow what Vince is selling, and while he doesn’t expect small promotions to survive, he thinks JCP and UWF will always hold strong in Southern cities. Southern fans are in it for the emotional drama, and that’s just not something WWF will ever provide as long as they cater to children and borderline fans. That doesn’t mean he thinks WWF is in any danger either - the glitz and gimmickry works very well for them. Unfortunately, Fishman doesn't have a letter in any of the 2001 issues reflecting on the buyout of ECW and WCW. Would have been interesting to see what he had to say when Vince actually did gobble up all of wrestling.
  • In JWP (Japan Women’s Pro Wrestling, the first joshi promotion to challenge the monopoly of AJW), they’re running an angle where Jackie Sato and Nancy Kumi have broken up as a team and started a feud. JWP doesn’t have tv and is struggling. Doesn’t help that they have very few wrestlers of big name value at the moment. (JWP will have a major shoot incident later this year and mostly be a footnote until they close in 1992 and the company splits into JWP Joshi Puroresu and Ladies Legend Pro Wrestling). Side note, Dave is frustrating in these issues when it comes to referring to joshi promotions because he never names them. JWP is only ever the "new group" and otherwise he doesn't even specify he's talking about AJW because they're the default.
  • Dave ranks his top 25 women wrestlers currently, though he lists 26 because although she’s retired Jaguar Yokota will “forever by No. 1 in my book.” He does this for men’s singles and tag teams sometimes as well, but there’s such a dearth of women’s wrestling coverage in the 80s that I want to pull this whole list out so we can see who all were considered good wrestlers back in the day. I’ll just quote the list: “*1. Jaguar Yokota; 1. Chigusa Nagayo; 2. Lioness Asuka; 3. Devil Masami; 4. Dump Matsumoto; 5. Leilani Kai (she’s tremendous when allowed to be); 6. Bull Nakano; 7. Lola Gonzales; 8. Rhonda Singh; 9. Estelle Molina; 10. Noriyo Tateno; 11. Rumi Kazama; 12. Shinobu Kandori; 13. Jackie Sato; 14. Reyna Gallegos; 15. Sherri Martel; 16. Itzuki Yamazaki; 17. Kazuo Nagahori; 18. Yukari Ohmori; 19. Vicky Caranza; 20. Nancy Kumi; 21. Debbie Combs; 22. Despina Montaguas; 23. Yasuka Ishiguro; 24. Condor Saito; 25. Sochi Hamada.”
