Hillary Clinton, Don’t Do This to Us Again

For several days now, the media has been teasing with varying enthusiasm the prospect of Hillary Clinton entering last-minute into the democratic presidential primaries. This is a horrible idea. Her entrance would only be a last-ditch effort to remove candidates like Gabbard, Yang, and Sanders from the spotlight. She is the embodiment of the establishment Democrat, the DNC failure that 2016 exemplified. She is so rife with controversy not of a personal nature, but of one that has gotten people killed. It would be almost impressive if it wasn’t so tragic. Her entrance into the race would be both detrimental and embarrassing.

So, Which Politician Murdered Jeffrey Epstein?

From the moment my phone told me that Jeffrey Epstein had committed suicide, I knew something was up. People like this have information. If they engaged in wrongdoing with friends, and those friends are powerful enough, there’s a means and motive to take that kind of person out. It seems that the whole of the American public thinks the wealthy financier was murdered, too.

Despite everyone realizing that this is probably the truth, nothing will happen.

Last week, 71 Republic’s Carlos Hermosillo wrote two pieces on MMA fighter Conor McGregor’s alleged sexual misconduct. Shortly after we published the second piece, McGregor’s PR agent, Caroline McAteer, sent us an email in which she demanded we remove the second piece. The article in question, which stated that McGregor supposedly offered more than a million Euros to his alleged rape victim, is available here. But 71 Republic is uninterested in McAteer’s little intimidation game.

Sex Work Decriminalization Bill Would Save Thousands from Slavery

sex work decriminalization
Ellie McFarland | @El_FarAwayLand

Back in June, the New York Senate introduced a sex work decriminalization bill. The bill, still without an eye-catching name, remains in committee. It has been there for several months due to its highly controversial nature. As it stands now, it covers everything from public health to property and domestic violence. If it passes, the bill will need to be water-tight in order to evade the bipartisan firing squad ready to shoot it down every time it comes to a vote. But regardless of its security, it would likely face a flurry of combatants based on so-called principles.
