Apparently, the business that is the royal family - with approval by the Queen herself - has approved stripping Andrew of all royal titles, including military titles - so that he can be tried as an ordinary citizen in the United States for sexual abuse/assault of a minor.
Pay attention, those that say that current royal family covers up everything - they're letting Andrew face the consequences without any royal or financial support on this one - he's on his own :)
They may still drag their feet on things and fail to address things directly - and the business that is the royal family may use tricky, vague language - but they're not covering up this one, now, are they? :)
Queen Elizabeth is not playing, clearly.
(Mummy's mad and mortified - and I don't blame her.)
Poor lady - I just hope she survives this latest round of heartache :(
Now - does anyone else find it odd that the only person that has been investigated and prosecuted in this Epstein sex-trafficking thing thus far has been a woman - and the only man that Maxwell allegedly trafficked to that's being investigated/tried - is a British royal?
Because you know dang well he wasn't the only one, and that wealthy, powerful, white American men were involved, too - in fact, it was likely primarily rich, powerful, white American men involved.
Like Prince Andrew, Trump and Clinton were both friends with Epstein and frequently hung out with him/went to his parties - and both have been accused of sexual harassment and assault previously - so what's the problem with investigating them?
We're too afraid the white American men we've put in power, on both sides of the political spectrum, are actually power-abusing, creepy criminals?
Does this mean we care more about political power than we do crime?
It especially bothers me that Republicans - who are supposed to be harder on crime than we are - turn the other way with millions of dollars in white-collar money crimes, and immediately cry "fake news" with sexual assault/rape/harassment situations - when it's one of their own :/
We Democrats have totally been behind prosecuting Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, Kevin Spacey, etc. - and we're open to the possibility that Bill Clinton might've been involved.
That is because we don't idolize our celebrities and politicians, like Trumpers do - we don't consider them the hands of God, or even "chosen" or "blessed" by God.
So what gives - can't you even consider the possibility that one of your own might've been involved in the Maxwell thing, or committed any crime?
Well, you may be re headed for a rude awakening, then, blindly believing that - because eventually, someone's going to come along and take advantage of your blind faith that no one in your party could be guilty of anything - and likely already have - and his name may be Trump ;)
