Queen Elizabeth Strips Prince Andrew of Titles Ahead of Epstein Sex Trail

Western Journal

Published

on

Queen Elizabeth has stripped Prince Andrew of his titles as he fights a civil sexual assault lawsuit.

The prince is fighting a New York lawsuit that accuses him of sexually abusing a minor while she was being controlled by Jeffrey Epstein, the disgraced financier and sex criminal, as CNBC News reported.

In light of this scandalous lawsuit, the Queen stripped her son of  “His Royal Highness” title and removed his military associations and royal patronages, the Daily Beast reported.

“With the Queen’s approval and agreement, The Duke of York’s military and Royal patronages have been returned to the Queen. The Duke of York will continue not to undertake any public duties and is defending the case as a private citizen,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement today.

This announcement also came upon the heels of a letter from more than 150 veterans of the Royal Navy, Air Force and Army. They called upon the monarch to strip her son of all his titles and ranks in the military.

The letter said that the prince had “fallen well short of” the military’s standards of “probity, honesty and honourable conduct.”

“It is hard not to see, when senior officers are reportedly describing him as ‘toxic’, that he has brought the services he is associated with into disrepute,” the letter said, CNBC News reported.

The letter also said that “Were this any other senior military officer it is inconceivable that he would still be in post,” the Guardian reported.

The queen’s decision to strip her son of his titles also came after a judge rejected the request to dismiss the lawsuit he faces.

One of Epstein’s victims, Virginia Giuffre, filed a lawsuit against Prince Andrew last year. She claimed that she was forced to have sex with the prince when she was 17 years old. The prince denied these allegations, as the Wall Street Journal reported.

However, the prince is possibly facing a trial in New York this fall, since his lawyers failed to halt the suit.

The prince’s lawyers argued that Epstein reached a civil settlement with Giuffre in 2008 and that barred her from suing Prince Andrew or others who may have abused her in connection to Epstein.

But yesterday, a judge rejected the request that the lawsuit be dismissed.

The prince’s scandalous lawsuit is especially prominent since the wrap-up of Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial, where the jury found her guilty of helping Epstein traffic and sexually abuse young girls.

Prince Andrew has been at the center of negative attention for the British royal family for some time now.

In 2011 he gave up his duties as a U.K trade envoy after he was criticized for his ties to Epstein and other controversial public figures in the Middle East as well. Then in 2019, he agreed to take a step back from royal duties, at least temporarily.

Besides the scandal of a British national and internationally known figure, the prince’s lawsuit also raises questions relevant to all British people.

If a trial proceeds, the fastest way to end things would be to settle with Giuffre out of court, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Do you think Prince Andrew should have been stripped of his titles sooner?

“However, that could raise questions about who would pay for a settlement, given the British taxpayer helps fund the royal family with an annual grant. Prince Andrew still lives on his mother’s estate in Windsor. He currently doesn’t have a full-time job. Buckingham Palace declined to comment on the ongoing trial,” the Journal reported.

While the palace has not commented further on the withdrawal of the prince’s titles or the lawsuit, Norman Baker, a royal author and former government minister, told the Daily Beast that it was “absolutely right” for the prince to give up his military titles.

“It had become an embarrassment all round, not least for the military, for him to continue for example to be colonel-in-chief of the Grenadier Guards,” he said. “The fact that the Palace is now describing him as a private citizen in respect of his court case tells us he has well and truly been chucked under the royal bus, yet the royal family cannot escape the immense damage that will increase as the American court case progresses. Can he now even stay as Duke of York, or having been marched up that hill by the Queen, will he be marched down again?”

The Photo That Could Come Back to Haunt Joe Biden After Hunter’s Associate Arrested for Treason

Western Journal

Published

on

Over the weekend, Kazakh officials announced the arrest of former Prime Minister Karim Massimov on suspicion of treason.

On Wednesday, Massimov was fired by the Kazakh president from his position as chairman of the country’s intelligence agency. His arrest came the following day, The New York Times reported.

Hunter Biden described Massimov as his “close friend” in a 2016 email, according to the Washington Examiner.

In the 2015 photograph below, Massimov, right, is seen with Hunter and then-Vice President Joe Biden. Kazakh oligarch Kenes Rakishev, who reportedly had business dealings with Hunter, is on the left. According to the New York Post, this picture was first published in 2019 by a Kazakh anti-corruption website.

Much of the information about Hunter’s relationship with Massimov and Rakishev came from emails and text messages found on his abandoned laptop.

In May 2014, Hunter joined the board of Burisma Holdings, Ukraine’s largest energy company. His business partner, Devon Archer, had joined the previous month. At the time, Massimov had just begun his second stint as prime minister.

Shortly afterward, Hunter was scheduled to meet with Massimov in Kazakhstan to “discuss an energy deal with Burisma,” according to the Washington Examiner. Records show that Hunter “ditched his Secret Service security detail before departing from Paris to Kazakhstan.”

The Examiner, citing the Daily Mail, reported that in 2015, “Kazakh banker Marc Holtzman invited Hunter Biden to attend a ‘small breakfast’ with Massimov at a Washington, D.C., hotel to discuss ‘several matters’ with the prime minister.”

Afterward, Holtzman emailed Hunter, saying, “Thank you for an amazing evening, wonderful company and great conversation. I look forward to seeing you soon and to many opportunities to work closely together.”

A Senate report on Hunter’s foreign business dealings lists a number of questionable transactions.

According to the report, “Archer received $142,300 from Kenges Rakishev of Kazakhstan, purportedly for a car, the same day Vice President Joe Biden appeared with Ukrainian Prime Minister Arsemy Yasenyuk and addressed Ukrainian legislators in Kyiv regarding Russia’s actions in Crimea.”

Given “Hunter Biden’s longstanding relationship with Archer … and the fact that the payment was timed perfectly with Vice President Biden’s visit to Kyiv to discuss U.S. sanctions against Russia for the invasion of Crimea, the April 22, 2014 payment from Rakishev … raises serious questions,” the report said.

The photograph of now-President Joe Biden, the “Big Guy,” and his son with a man who was just arrested on suspicion of treason doesn’t mean either of them has necessarily engaged in wrongdoing. On the other hand, the optics of this situation, as well as the highly credible findings of the Senate and the comprehensive investigative reporting of Peter Schweizer, are disturbing.

Whether it’s in China or Mexico or Africa, Hunter Biden always seems to have business interests at stake. And his father, the U.S. president, is never too far away.

Yet the establishment media refuses to cover this story.

NewsBusters’ Kevin Tober goes there, as he should. What if Donald Trump Jr.’s “close friend” was charged with treason in a foreign country?
