For months, the lawyers for Ghislaine Maxwell and others, have tried to move Heaven and Earth to prevent the release of court documents in the Child-Sex-Trafficking case heard in federal Civil Court. They failed to prevent the release, which began last night, but they SUCCEEDED in getting the federal judge to permit redaction of "third-party names." But today we find the method used to redact, can be instantly undone . . . by everyone!
The documents began being released last night, with many, MANY redactions, but there's a problem: The way the law firms redacted the documents can be un-done by simply cutting and pasting the redacted pages into the Windows program called "Notepad." It comes free with every Windows machine!
Notepad is a basic word processor program which does not handle graphics. The redactions are a graphic black block imposed OVER the underlying text.
So when people copy and paste the redacted documents into Notepad, the software ignores the black graphical redaction, and produces the underlying text which had been blacked-out!
This means all the NAMES and affiliations of ALL the third parties . . . can be seen by everyone in the general public. NOTHING IS SECRET ANYMORE!!!!
MILLIONS of downloads of these court documents have taken place since the release last night. There's no way to put this genie back in its bottle.
One of the first exposures that will prove uncomfortable: the names of FBI Agents, who - we now find -- knew about Jeffrey Epstein's "Orgy Island" and the trafficking of children for sex, but who seem to have done literally NOTHING about it . . . for years!
Here, some of these people hold themselves out as honorable FBI Agents, when in fact, they seem to have turned a deliberate blind-eye to kids being trafficked for sex. WOW!
The fallout from this is likely to be enormous.

This is necessary because this is a CLOUD-BASED web site. The way it works is YOU READ . . . I GET BILLED for "Data Transfer."
Despite being politely asked for voluntary donations, few people ever bothered to donate. Then, despite being asked to click an ad within a story to generate ad revenue for this site, the majority of the general public couldn't be bothered with that, either. So there's no reason to give the general public free news anymore; they don't pull their own weight.
With tens-of-thousands of people reading stories here every day, the costs nearly drove the site out of business.
In order to be able to continue providing cutting-edge news, often hours or even DAYS before Drudge and most of the "mass-media" -- if they even cover it at all -- I need to be able to sustain this effort. To do that, I rely on folks like YOU contributing a pittance of about $1 a week; which is chump-change that you won't even miss! Yet that small amount makes all the difference in the world to the continued existence of this web site.
In the final analysis, knowledge is power. Getting information first, or info that other sources simply don't report, is usually well worth a few bucks in the long run.
