This post is a reminder that Tom and Rita Hanks are dual citizens of America and Greece. This may not mean much to you, but it is significant to them.
Salacious rumors about Tom Hanks have been making the rounds for years. Your auntie won't repeat such rumors because we live in a very litigious society.
The Hanks are among the bold name stars who accepted free trips on Jeffrey Epstein's infamous "Lolita express" to his pedo island.
Other names on the flight logs include Beyonce and Jay-Z Carter, Will Smith, Pharrell Williams, former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, and more.
The Hollywood power couple are among A- and B-list stars and political figures scrambling to get out of dodge - or at least out of the reach of the feds - before Ghislaine Maxwell's dirty secrets become public fodder for the tabloids next week.
Attorneys for Epstein's former madam pleaded with a Manhattan judge to delay the release of previously sealed documents filed in a 2015 lawsuit against Maxwell by a woman who says she was defiled as a minor.
The case was settled out of court to protect the people named in the documents.
U.S. District Court Judge Loretta Preska ruled last week that the public was legally entitled to view the evidence against Maxwell.
The documents allegedly contain the names of red-faced Hollywood celebrities, CEOs and politicians who don't want their alleged predilections for children publicized.
There are reports that "Maxwell has tapes of two prominent U.S. politicians having sex with minors".
Citing "great concerns" about Maxwell's ability to get a fair trial if the documents and tapes go public, Maxwell's lawyer, Laura Menninger, asked the court to delay releasing the documents for two weeks to file an appeal of the court's ruling.
The judge gave Menninger one week to file an appeal.
The corporate-owned news media in America will do the best they can to protect their liberal icons. But there are websites and blogs on the Internet that have nothing to lose by publishing the names.
