Tevfik Arif; Billionare sex ring busted using Turkish Presidential Yacht
During the primary, so many damning things were said, heard and seen. What could possibly be bad enough to scare a guy who weathered “Grab ’em by the pussy”?
A story from the DAILY KOS:
A New York real estate mogul with ties to Donald Trump is at the center of an international sex scandal – suspected of running a high-priced prostitution ring.
Tevfik Arif, 57, has been detained in Turkey on suspicion of setting up trysts between wealthy businessmen and Eastern European models – some underage – aboard a $60 million yacht once used by the nation’s founder, Mustafa Ataturk.
Arif, whose Bayrock Group co-developed the Trump SoHo and the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Fort Lauderdale, was among 10 people rounded up in Tuesday’s raid on suspicion of running a prostitution ring.
Prosecutor Yusuf Hakki Dogan said the Savarona yacht was used twice for sexcapades, the Turkish newspaper Hurriyet reported.
“This is the man who defiled the Savarona,” read the headline on the cover of the Turkish paper Milliyet, beside a photo of Arif.
Ten models from Russia and Ukraine were detained, but one was released, Bloomberg News reported. Two of the women were underage.
the Huffington Post;
An anonymous “Jane Doe” filed a federal lawsuit against GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump last week, accusing him of raping her in 1994 when she was thirteen years old. The mainstream media ignored the filing.
If the Bill Cosby case has taught us anything, it is to not disregard rape cases against famous men. Serious journalists have publicly apologized for turning a blind eye to the Cosby accusers for over a decade, notwithstanding the large number of women who had come forward with credible claims. And now history is repeating itself.
In covering a story, a media outlet is not finding guilt. It is simply reporting the news that a lawsuit has been filed against Mr. Trump, and ideally putting the complaint in context. Unproven allegations are just that – unproven, and should be identified that way. (Mr. Trump’s lawyer says the charges are “categorically untrue, completely fabricated and politically motivated.”) Proof comes later, at trial. But the November election will come well before any trial. And while Mr. Trump is presumed innocent, we are permitted — no, we are obligated — to analyze the case’s viability now.
throw in this PDF about Jeffrey Epstein as well
When I first heard the Epstein allegations, it sounded reminiscent of the fantastical repressed memories from the McMartin trial. I was dismissive given the grandiose “Private Jet Sex Ring” claims and that everyone involved was rich and famous. These sounded like when a schizophrenic claims that Spielberg and The Bush family are monitoring him via implant.
And then the Tevfik Arif story comes back up. Russian and Ukrainian girls, some underage. Bayrock Group. The Ritz , and Golden Shower shows.
How much smoke before we can start inquiring about a fire?
Is this why the Turkish Ambassador, Andrei Gennadyevich Karlov was gunned down?
( I thought they only taught that straight thumb modified weaver stance at Gunsite in Arizona and in the suburbs of Langley, but here’s a Turkish “police officer”, with a Sig p-229.. Holding it like…nevermind)
It wasn’t far fetched anymore
