    The Japanese government has completed the 16 billion yen (US$146 million) purchase of an uninhabited island between Kyushu and Okinawa prefecture which it plans to develop into a training base for Japanese and US military aircraft. Mageshima is part of the Osumi Islands and hosted an important airfield for the Japanese military when defending Okinawa in the closing stages of World War II. Its planned development reflects Tokyo’s revised security doctrine and determination to protect the scattered islands off its most southern prefecture. “It’s important to secure the site for field carrier landing practice from the viewpoint of security so...

    "We were just trying to look at pretty fish ... and here we are in the middle of an FBI raid," said Kelly Quinn, the owner of Salty Dog Day Sails. FBI agents raided Jeffrey Epstein's private island in the Caribbean on Monday in a vivid display that the probe into his alleged sex trafficking ring is continuing despite his death. A swarm of federal agents was seen fanning out across Little St. James in golf carts about 10:30 a.m. "We were just trying to look at pretty fish and swim with turtles and here we are in the middle...

  • Odd YouTube channel appears, hosting new hi-def drone footage of Epstein's "pedophile island"

    Little St. James – or “pedophile island” as the locals call it – is at the epicenter of the Jeffry Epstein saga.  Everyone wants more info about it. Who went there, when did they go, how was it funded, and why has it been ignored for so long?  How is it possible that a whole host of governments let a known pedophile run a secluded, and very creepy, Bond-villain hideout for so many years… unless they were somehow involved with it? Hopefully those answers are coming. In the meantime, those who would like a closer look at Epstein’s lair can get one. ...

    Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has thrown everything but the kitchen sink at Hillary Clinton when it comes to her husband's escapades. "The kitchen sink," in this case, is Jeffery Epstein's “Sex Slave Island” and President Bill Clinton’s ties to it. Why wouldn’t Trump use this ammo? The answer is simple: Trump himself has ties to Epstein, the billionaire Democratic donor and convicted pedophile known for having under-age sex slaves on his private plane and what the media calls "Sex Slave Island." Here are seven connections between Trump and Epstein's sex slave endeavors that you need to know about:...

    Pila'a, Kauai -- Last Sunday morning, more than a dozen cars were parked along a six-foot wall built around Mark Zuckerberg's vast retreat on the northeast corner of Kauai, a small, remote Hawaiian island that's home to 70,000 people. The gate, which is almost always locked shut, was open, so you could walk right past the Facebook-blue sign that reads "PRIVATE PROPERTY Thank you for not trespassing." The lava rock wall, which Zuckerberg started building in 2016, inflamed some of his neighbors. It's built on a bluff a mile from the ocean and now stretches for nearly a mile along...

    The Danish parliament has approved funding for a plan to hold foreign criminals on a tiny island, despite criticism from the UN and local opposition. With Denmark taking an increasingly tough stance on immigration, the government wants to send up to 100 people who have completed jail sentences but cannot be deported because they are at risk of torture or execution in their home countries to the island of Lindholm. Funding for the scheme was included in the 2019 Danish budget, which lawmakers voted through on Thursday. A centre for people convicted of crimes ranging from murder and rape to...

With the job, you’ll not only have the love of many cats, but you’ll also have a fully paid for, modern little house with its own garden that also has a view of the Aegean Sea, and a small salary to boot.

    Despite an ongoing investigation by the Nordic nation's equality ombudsman's office into whether a woman-only business classifies as illegal discrimination, the "Supershe" island oasis is scheduled to open "as planned." Advertised as a "rejuvenating and a safe space where women can reinvent themselves and their desires," an island off the coast of Raasepori in southern Finland is being touted as an all-inclusive, testosterone-free luxury resort. According to the Supershe website, the island can accommodate ten women in four newly-renovated cabins. German-American entrepreneur Kristina Roth, the driving force behind the project, has dispelled the contradictory reports that have come out recently...
