Nightmare Sex Allegation: Soros' Right-Hand Man Claimed to Rape Daughter, Had Hideous Sex Dungeon

Western Journal

Published

Could Howard Rubin end up tainting George Soros like Jeffrey Epstein tainted so many other billionaires?

Rubin is a top money manager who was a “right-hand man” for the leftist billionaire, according to the New York Post. He worked at the Soros Fund from 2008 to 2015, having come out of retirement to take the job, according to the U.K. Daily Mail.

Now, he’s the subject of a court case — accused by multiple women of engaging in sadistic sex-for-hire practices that went way beyond what they had consented to.

And while he was known to be volatile professionally, it’s not the kind of headline Rubin’s career would suggest.

During 30 years on Wall Street, Rubin established a solid record working at other high-end investment firms. He was immortalized in “Liar’s Poker,” the debut book by Michael Lewis of “Moneyball” and “The Big Short” fame. In it, Rubin described how “the trading floor at Salomon Brothers felt like a Las Vegas casino. You made your bets, handled risk, in the midst of a thousand distractions.”

Even then, some viewed him as an out-of-control Wall Street type.

“I saw him throw a chair on the trading floor,” a former co-worker said, according to the Post. “He said, ‘F***. I just lost $50 million!’ and threw a chair at his computer. Then he came back and threw it a second time, even harder. That sums up Howie: High strung, aggressive, does not hold back his feelings. He was a trader whose ego was tied up in being the biggest swinging d*** on Wall Street.”

Others saw a man who was perfectly average for someone in his position.

“I thought he was a nice guy,” one of his co-workers at Soros Fund Management told the Post. “He was a nebbishy Jewish guy and totally normal. I was surprised to hear about him having that apartment.”

“That apartment” refers to a hidden real-estate acquisition of Rubin’s: A “luxurious midtown Manhattan penthouse,” the Post reports, that functioned as a BDSM sex “dungeon” in which Rubin is accused of sexually assaulting and abusing numerous women, among them Playboy playmates.

In November, Rubin’s purported proclivities will be on full display as six of his seven alleged victims will have their day in court, suing the 66-year-old Rubin for $18 million, according to the Post.

The women were sex workers — but the abuse they endured, they said, wasn’t what they were hired for.

“[Rubin] is alleged to have paid his partners as much as $5,000 for each BDSM session. But, the women claim, they did not agree to the degree of abuse and degradation Rubin inflicted,” the Post reported Saturday.

“One of the plaintiffs claims that, while she was bound and vulnerable in Rubin’s lair, he told her ‘I’m going to rape you like I rape my daughter’ and then, according to the complaint, forced sex on her against her will. (Rubin has three children with his estranged wife, including at least one daughter.)”

It’s worth noting, however, there are no accusations he sexually abused his daughter — merely that he told a woman that during a forced sex act.

The women say that after they were hired, they “wound up in Rubin’s dungeon, with its red walls and white carpet. Sex toys were alphabetized and an X-shaped ‘St. Andrews cross’ — a device on which submissives are restrained, spread-eagle, at the wrists, ankles and waist — took pride of place.”

Two of the women — Playboy international playmates Mia Lytell and Amy Moore — said they thought Rubin intended to engage in “some mild fetish games and perhaps take photos, neither expected to be restrained in this manner [bound with rope and tape and gagged] or to be actually beaten.”

The lawsuit states that when one of the women “screamed or protested [during a session], Rubin would simply become more violent.” It also accuses Rubin of “beat[ing a woman’s] breasts so badly that her right implant flipped.”

The injury was so serious, court documents said, that the woman’s “plastic surgeon was not even willing to operate on her breasts.”

“In short, they are each alleging that they were brought to New York and taken advantage of,” said John Balestriere, who represents the women. “Allegations come down to [the women] saying they were physically and sexually abused.”

Rubin’s defense comes down to informed consent — indicating that, yes, he had engaged in some of the lowest forms of degeneracy imaginable, but it was done with the women’s consent.

A motion for summary judgment filed by Rubin attorney Edward McDonald states that the women “signed strict non-disclosure agreements, with penalties of at least $500,000 if broken, and acknowledgment that violent sex, with a risk of injury, is what they were consenting to and being paid for,” the Post reported.

“Each of the women, all adults, had explicit knowledge of the highly paid sexual arrangements for which they willingly traveled,”  McDonald told the Post in a statement.

“Multiple women confirmed consent through text messages before and after their encounters, returned for multiple encounters, arranged for their closest friends to engage in the same sexual activity and repeatedly solicited Mr. Rubin long after their final encounters.”

Balestriere argued the women had little opportunity to review the non-disclosure agreements they signed, nor did they understand the implications therein.

“They did not have lawyers on call,” he said, adding that Rubin’s “encounters” went far beyond consensual activity and into the realm of sexual violence.

“None of these women came to New York knowing that they would be physically and sexually abused. They did not consent to what did end up happening. The key factor is that Mr. Rubin said these individuals consented to the physical and sexual violence perpetrated against them. Our six clients say they did not consent.”

“Some of our clients say they were in no position to speak or leave,” he added.

There are a whole litany of stomach-churning details in the article that are best left unsaid. At present, Rubin is no longer renting the penthouse, although some of the sexual devices have been put into storage by Rubin “so he doesn’t get accused of disposing of evidence,” a source told the Post.

Even though the scandal has been slowly unfolding for years, Rubin’s wife of 36 years — Mary Henry, another Wall Street fixture — just filed for divorce on July 7, according to the Post.

Beyond the sordid nature of the case, the first question involves how true the accusations are and what evidence can be produced. If things begin looking grim on that front, attention then turns to what everyone around Rubin knew and when they knew it.

Lytell and Moore, along with a third woman, first came forward with allegations of assault, battery and human trafficking in 2017, according to the Post.

This was two years after Rubin quit working for George Soros, but it’s a good chance his proclivities were established long before that.

And that could mean at least a hint of trouble for the infamous financier of liberal causes.

While there are plenty of Wall Street figures and sundry financiers that have come into Rubin’s orbit, most don’t pretend to be moral exemplars and sociopolitical supermen the way Soros does.

And, while the alleged sexual assaults and extreme fetish behavior Rubin engaged in wasn’t publicly known before 2017, others said the financier had a history of ethical lapses. One former executive at Merrill Lynch Mortgage Capital Markets, where Rubin worked in the 1980s, noted Rubin was fired after he made an unauthorized trade that cost the firm hundreds of millions of dollars.

Without providing details, the unnamed executive said this was a part of a pattern of behavior on Rubin’s part.

“[The dungeon] was just Howie being a lowlife — again,” he said, although he added, “I never knew about the sexual deviations.”

Nevertheless, after the news broke, “people were calling me and saying he’s a sleaze … but Howie has no morals. While at Merrill Lynch, he was morally bankrupt.”

It’ll be interesting to find out who was willing to tolerate that kind of degenerate bankruptcy, and whether Howard Rubin ends up tainting reputations the way Jeffrey Epstein did.

Video: Pilot Dedicates His Last Flight to 13 US Service Members Killed in Afghanistan, Passengers Cheer

Western Journal

Published

on

It was the last mass casualty event during our 20-year war in Afghanistan — 13 U.S. service members killed in a suicide attack at the Kabul airport, along with more than 160 Afghans.

The attack shook the United States and our allies to the core, particularly coming after the chaotic fall of the country to the Taliban.

While there may be no way to sufficiently honor those who paid the ultimate price during the Aug. 26 bombing, an unknown pilot is making the rounds on TikTok and Facebook for his fitting dedication to our heroes.

The video was posted to Facebook by Ryan Fournier, the founder of Students for Trump. However, it appears to have originated on TikTok, where it was uploaded by @roballnic1.

While the details surrounding the video are scanty — where and when it was recorded, who recorded it, who the pilot was — it’s the type of video that would be difficult to fake unless you have a spare Boeing 737 hanging around.

What is clear from the video is that the pilot begins by saying, “We’re heading down to Houston, it should take us two hours and 27 minutes. The weather’s good, weather’s good, the ride should be good.”

As he was saying that, however, he was holding up a tablet with the pictures of some of the 11 Marines, one soldier and one sailor from the Kabul bombing.

“I’ve got six more days left here at Southwest Airlines, I have to retire because I’m 65 years old,” he said to applause.

“I’ll keep flying. And every time I fly now, I want to dedicate our flight and my trip to the 13 senseless losses of soldiers, sailors, Marines,” he continued.

“Men and women. My brother Marines, my sister Marines.”

This elicited a “hoo-rah” from the cabin.

“Everybody, just remember them,” he added. “And I don’t care who you hated or who you liked in the last election. What happened was just wrong.”

This got some assent from the cabin, too. He finished the preflight speech by saying, “We’ll get going. Smiles, everybody. And … remember the 13.”

With that, the pilot got a round of applause.



While the text overlaid on the original TikTok video said this was the pilot’s last flight, there’s no evidence of that in the video or in other reports. Given that he said he had six days left with the company and that “I’ll keep flying,” this seems unlikely.

However, the video also seems equally unlikely to be fakery.

It’s difficult to say that the deaths of 13 American service members in a suicide attack carried out by a branch of the Islamic State group could get lost in the shuffle, per se. However, there was so much senseless tragedy surrounding the fall of Afghanistan and our hasty withdrawal from the country that it was almost an afterthought. The whole affair stunned the nation and the world.

It’s not as if the men and women who were killed in the attack didn’t have their lives celebrated. This was the hometown welcome for Lance Cpl. Rylee McCollum in Jackson, Wyoming:

However, it’s acts like these that go viral — and like it or not, social media status is currency these days.

This pilot, whoever he may be, made sure to spend that currency in the best way possible.

We may never know who he was. Rest assured, however, plenty of people will remember what he said.

If you’re going to mark one of your last flights piloting a commercial jet in a profound way, it’s hard to think of how you could do it better than this. Our hats are off to you, sir.

FDA Official Says Feds Need to Shoot Black Americans with Blow Darts Filled with COVID Vaccine: Report

Western Journal

Published

on

A Food and Drug Administration official was caught on tape seemingly suggesting black Americans who are hesitant about the COVID-19 vaccine should be shot with blow darts to get inoculated — while also suggesting some “Amazonians” could “get it done” for them.

This revelation came from Part Two of a Project Veritas exposé about the vaccine that was released this week.



In the footage, a man identified as FDA economist Taylor Lee, spoke to an undercover journalist from the organization, mentioning several times that he was so frustrated with the black community’s reluctance that his solution would be to forcibly administer the shot.

Although he appeared to be speaking tongue-in-cheek, his remarks were disturbing, condescending and culturally insensitive.

Lee suggested using this method that is insulting to black Americans as it is often employed against animals and also takes a dig at some indigenous people in South America known for hunting that way.

“I remember reading about how with COVID [vaccine] trials, they were having an issue recruiting African-American people and it was because of a different medication the government tried to do that was specifically designed to kill African Americans,” Lee pointed out.

When the undercover journalist off-camera suggested he couldn’t blame them for their mistrust after that, Lee replied, “I can’t, but at the same time, like, blow dart,” he concluded. “That’s where we’re going.”

Lee went on to explain that he felt the Johnson & Johnson version of the vaccine would do well for the purpose.

“Like, go to the unvaccinated, and blow it into them — blow dart it into them. That’s where I am at this point,” Lee said.

When the Project Veritas journalist asked him for a broader strategy to get minorities to take the shot, Lee continued with his same bizarre proposal, adding they’d have to “post video campaigns about doing it to the whites first” so they couldn’t be charged with racism.

“We’ll have to hire some Amazonians first because they’ll get it done,” Lee added. The official then doubled down on this angle in what appeared to be footage from another conversation between the undercover journalist and Lee.

“Want to see how fast I get an Amazon rainforest tribe out here?” Lee said, continuing with his insensitive generalizations that are normally taboo in polite society.

While it’s true this is one man’s opinion in what he likely thought was a casual social setting, it does point to a certain mindset from an FDA insider that is as dangerous as it is shocking.

The idea that Lee would suggest force as an appropriate method to achieve universal vaccination isn’t far-fetched considering what’s happening in the world lately.

President Joe Biden warned that his “patience” was “wearing thin” for the unvaccinated when he addressed the nation and announced a sweeping vaccine mandate for millions of Americans.

It’s also no laughing matter considering the frightening authoritarian crackdown that has turned Australia into a police state — and while the country is physically a world away, it seems philosophically adjacent to the kind of mindset an FDA employee is expressing.

It’s disturbing to witness the way Lee so casually speaks about his burning desire to forcibly vaccinate people as an insider at the agency responsible for keeping Americans safe from harmful substances, and even more so as he speaks about black and minority populations.

Project Veritas is doing a service to America by exposing the dark underbelly of these organizations, but it’s difficult to watch knowing that Lee is just one man exposed among the plethora of operatives who think like him still embedded in the deep state.
