Virgin Islands Democrat congresswoman Stacey Plaskett said that she will donate twice the amount of campaign contributions that she has received from accused child trafficker Jeffrey Epstein to women and children’s organizations — after a storm of criticism for her initial unwillingness to do so.
“I am uncomfortable having received money from someone who has been accused of these egregious actions multiple times,” Plaskett stated, according to the New York Post. “I want it to be clear that I in no way support the allegations and have confidence in the Southern District of New York to investigate and prosecute the matter.”
CNBC initially quoted a spokesman for Plaskett as saying “I’m pretty sure she’s not” going to give away her Epstein money.
Plaskett pocketed donations from Epstein in 2016 and 2018, well after Epstein was a well-known pedophile.
Plaskett is not the only figure on the Left who did not seem to mind Epstein’s disgusting record.
Jeffrey Epstein still counted ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos and Katie Couric as social friends after his first release from prison, when he served 13 months in a country-club county jail. Epstein now faces child trafficking charges, with an indictment from the Southern District of New York that references three minor victims.
“Who among these visitors knew what about Epstein’s sexual subjugation of high-school girls? Let me avoid threats from lawyers and just say that, regardless of the answer, Epstein lost fewer friends than you’d think, not to mention very little of his fortune. In 2010, having long since served his time, Epstein was hosting Katie Couric, George Stephanopoulos, Chelsea Handler, and Woody Allen for dinner. “I plead guilty to making a deal that was favorable to my client,” said Dershowitz in 2015. “That’s my job.” Or, as Ken Starr offered in the same year, “I was very happy to respond to the needs of a client of the firm.”

Three minor victims and three employees are named in the child trafficking indictment against Jeffrey Epstein, the billionaire pedophile and Bill Clinton friend who is facing trial in the Southern District of New York.
The Miami Herald reports that new victims and witnesses came forward to help the FBI-NYPD.
“Sources told the Herald that the indictment includes new victims and witnesses who spoke to authorities in New York over the past several months,” reported the Miami Herald, which successfully sued to unseal some records pertaining to an Epstein-related defamation case days ago.
Jeffrey Epstein has been arrested for sex trafficking minors, marking another major step forward in law enforcement’s recent push to bust elite pedophile rings. (READ: NXIVM Cult’s Connections To Hillary, Schumer, and Gillibrand).
The Daily Beast reports: Billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was arrested for allegedly sex trafficking dozens of minors in New York and Florida between 2002 and 2005, and will appear in court in New York on Monday, according to three law enforcement sources. The arrest, by the FBI-NYPD Crimes Against Children Task Force, comes about 12 years after the 66-year-old financier essentially got a slap on the wrist for allegedly molesting dozens of underage girls in Florida…
Several employees and associates allegedly recruited the girls for Epstein’s abuse, and some victims eventually became recruiters themselves, according to law enforcement. The girls were as young as 14, and Epstein knew they were underage, according to details of the arrest and indictment shared by two officials.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
