Jeffrey Epstein, Jeffrey Edward Epstein was born January 20, 1953 in Brooklyn, New York. His father was Seymour George Epstein born December 4, 1916 in New York, died December 14, 1991 in Cleveland, Ohio. His father died from an accident in Ohio. He had 12 years of education. He worked for Administration of Environmental Quality and Housing Programs per his death certificate. Per others he worked for New York City Department of Parks and Recreation. He was a groundskeeper. He enlisted and served in the military. He also previously worked as a clerk and in the automobile industry. Jeffrey's mother was Paula Stolofsky. She was born October 5, 1918 in Brooklyn, New York. She died April 1, 2004 in West Palm Beach, Florida. Jeffrey's parents were married 1952.

Per photos the family was successful. I see bat mitzvahs, parties...




Below is a pic of Jeffrey Epstein's high school yearbook 1969.

Jeffrey Epstein's paternal grandparents were Julius Epstein 1882-1944 and Bessie Fisher 1890-1960. They were both born in Russia. Julius Epstein was a "house wrecker," home demolisher, who completed the 8th grade. He owned his company.

Jeffrey Epstein's maternal grandparents were Max Mortchel Stolofsky born abt. 1893 in Lithuania, died 1954, and Lena Berlin, 1895 -2004. Max Stolofsky was a chauffer, driver for a furniture firm.

Jeffrey Epstein has a brother named Mark Lawrence Epstein born July 14, 1954 in Brooklyn, New York. He graduated from the same high school as Jeffrey in 1971. Below is his graduation photo. Per his yearbook, "MARK EPSTEIN, math team captain, senior grade representative, senior orchestra, math office, senior council, english office, history office." Appears they were both great at math.

Below is his family tree pedigree view. I just started an hour ago. This will be updated.

I found the below online which is an excerpt from an article.

"Jeffrey Epstein’s mother, Paula, was the daughter of Max and Lena Stolofsky, who arrived in the United States as Lithuanian refugees. Relatives on that side of the family who remained in the old country would all perish in the course of Adolf Hitler’s campaign to exterminate European Jewry.

Epstein’s father, Seymour, was a manual laborer, like his father before him. Seymour’s parents, Julius and Bessie Epstein, had emigrated from Russia and landed in Brooklyn, both of them with eighth-grade educations. They lived in Crown Heights, where Julius owned a house-wrecking company.

Before landing a job with the city, Seymour had worked with his father.

They were kind people, says Epstein’s childhood friend Gary Grossberg. Seymour was there for him at a difficult time, Grossberg says. When Grossberg was young, his parents divorced, and his father moved out of Brooklyn. Seymour and Paula took Gary in. Often they referred to him as their third son. “Paula was a wonderful mother and homemaker,” Grossberg remembers, “despite the fact that she had a full-time job.”

Epstein, as a kid, was “chubby, with curly hair and a high, ‘hee-hee’ kind of laugh,” Beverly Donatelli recalls.* Beverly was two years older than Epstein, but thanks to his precocious talents, which allowed him to skip two grades, they graduated from Brooklyn’s Lafayette High School together, in 1969.

“He was advanced,” Beverly remembers. “He tutored my girlfriend and myself in the summer. He taught me geometry in just two months.”

When Beverly thinks of Epstein now, she recalls gentler times-long strolls down the Coney Island boardwalk, roller-coaster rides, stolen kisses. “That last year in school, I think he kind of loved me,” she says. “One night on the beach he kissed me. In fact, our history teacher made up a mock wedding invitation for Jeffrey and myself to show to the class. That seems pretty inappropriate now. But back then, we all thought it was funny. Jews and the Italians, that was pretty much who went to Lafayette High School. They didn’t socialize that much. And though my mother was crazy about him, she told me Jewish boys don’t marry Italians.”

Through the haze of several decades, Beverly remembers Epstein as a kindhearted boy and something of a prodigy-a gifted young pianist as well as a math whiz.

“I was talking to my girlfriends the other day,” she says. “There is nothing but nice we can say about him. He is actually the reason I went to college.”

Beverly lost contact with Epstein over the years. But not long after Epstein’s fiftieth birthday, she got a call out of the blue.

“He had a photo of us on the beach,” she says. “A friend noticed it at his birthday party. And Jeffrey said to the friend: ‘I bet she has a big ass now.’ So Jeffrey called me and invited me to his home on 71st Street. We hung out. We reminisced. He was the same Jeffrey. A gentleman.”

The two never did speak again, but to this day Beverly sympathizes with her high school sweetheart.

“I feel so bad for him,” Beverly says. “That’s how much I liked him.”

Gary Grossberg was a year younger than Epstein and in the same class as Epstein’s kid brother, Mark, with whom Grossberg remains very friendly, though he hasn’t seen or spoken with Jeffrey in some time. Both brothers are good people, he says.

“Jeffrey’s a brilliant and good person. He is also incredibly generous.”

Grossberg says he’s talked to Epstein about “the problem in Florida.” As he sees it, Epstein “got carried away…perhaps he was hanging around with the wrong people.”

Grossberg wonders, too, if the things that made Epstein special contributed to his eventual fall from grace.

“He was a diamond in the rough, you see,” Grossberg explains. “People recognized Jeffrey’s brilliance very early on. But he had a gift for recognizing opportunities very quickly. He started buying properties in Manhattan, including 301 East 66th Street. He asked his brother-did Mark want to join him? He did.”

Grossberg himself has had his ups and downs. At one point, he worked in a building owned by the Epstein brothers. There, he says, a porter told him a story about a little-known side of Jeffrey Epstein. The porter’s wife, who lived in South America, desperately needed an organ transplant. Epstein paid for the operation.

“That’s just typical,” Grossberg says. “That’s who he always was, long as I knew him.”

“Lafayette was a city school,” says another old classmate, James Rosen. “It was functional. There was nothing special about it.”

James Rosen is a retired postal worker. He lives in South Florida now, but, like Jeffrey Epstein, he’d grown up in Sea Gate.

“There was a lot of volatility at Lafayette,” Rosen recalls. “It was a blue-collar area that was, at one time, 90 percent Italian. Then a small amount of Jews moved in, and there was anti-Semitism. The Italians didn’t want the Jews to be there.”

Black families were moving in, too, he remembers, and Hispanic ones. But he says most of the animosity was aimed at Jews.

“There were fights in the schools. They thought we were going to take over.”

But Epstein seems to have made friends easily. Even then, his buddies-who called him Eppy-could see he was special. While they hung out on the beach, Epstein played the piano. Did homework. Worked on his prized stamp collection.

Innocent times.

It’s the height of the Vietnam War. Students collide with college administrators. Hippies collide with hard hats. Kids with long hair collide with their parents. Jeffrey Epstein does not go in for any of that. At the age of sixteen, he’s taking advanced math classes at Cooper Union, an august institution in the East Village where Abraham Lincoln once spoke.

Thanks to a generous endowment, the school is tuition-free, though the application process is famously rigorous.

Epstein sails through it.

At Harvard or Yale, his accent would give him away. Epstein tawks like the Brooklyn boy he is. But Cooper Union is more open than any Ivy League school. It’s full of boys from Brooklyn, and, aside from his prodigious intellect, Epstein doesn’t stand out. He starts to make money by tutoring his fellow students. And in 1971, he leaves Cooper Union for the greener pastures of New York University, located a few blocks away. There, at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, he studies the mathematical physiology of the heart. But he never graduates from any college or university.

By 1973, Epstein is teaching at the Dalton School, a prestigious private school on the Upper East Side. Like Tavern on the Green, Grand Central Terminal, and the Century Association, Dalton is a New York institution-an elite K-12 rocket ship built for the children of New York’s ruling classes.

It’s not at all clear how Epstein, who has no college degree, ends up there.

And yet here he is, barely out of his teens and already a teacher of math and physics. “Go forth unafraid” is the Dalton School’s credo.

It’s a philosophy Epstein has adopted. For him, Dalton’s an excellent launching pad.

It’s nothing like Lafayette High School. The kids he’s teaching are rich-very rich. Their parents are extremely well connected. And despite Epstein’s outer-borough accent, he’s careful in his presentation. At any given moment, he’s one parent-teacher conference away from a whole new world of possibilities.

Because Dalton has an excellent student-to-teacher ratio, the parents get to know Epstein quite well. Before long, a Wall Street macher named Alan “Ace” Greenberg has taken a special shine to the young man who’s been tutoring his son Ted."

Who is getting $775/day to care for immigrant children in detention? Friends of Trump, big business, GOP



Emily Price
So I decided to do a little research into the $750/day figure I’d heard a private company was charging the US government per each detained migrant child. I wanted to, with my own eyes and brain, 1. verify this figure was accurate; 2. verify it was indeed a private company instead of a non-profit charging this, if true, as both have managed these detention centers (not that it really matters, ultimately, but stay with me); 3. try to figure out where this per diem sum — more than my monthly mortgage — was going, if not to even buy these tortured children toothbrushes and soap, which are about the cheapest basic necessities on the market, and which no individual has to replace every day.
$750/person A DAY should cover a lot of necessities, right? Right. So where the hell is all this money going? This can’t be true...
Well here’s what I found:
1. Yes, it’s a private company called Comprehensive Health Services (a subsidiary of Caliburn International). CHS operates the largest child migrant detention center, which is in FL and was already getting horrible press — especially from local FL papers — last year. But that didn’t matter, because CHS recently opened up a few more child prisons in TX, as it snagged a new government contract, despite many documented concerns about conditions there.
2. $750/day per child is an accurate sum of CHS’s CLAIMED operating costs, and what our federal tax dollars are paying for. A sum that was agreed to upon award of the contract. In fact, it was actually on the record as $775 last summer.
3. So where is this money going, you wonder, if not to soap and toothbrushes? Yeah, I did too, and it was quite easy to dig up. CHS, via Caliburn, is controlled by the private equity firm DC Capital Partners. For those of you who don’t know how private equity firms work, look it up, or ask me in the comments.
4. While I would not be able to find out vested shareholders in the DCCP portfolio, we do not have to assume they’re making some nice returns on these CHS operations and government contracts that line their pockets instead of covering even basic human needs for children. That’s clear, because why would a private company keep their costs down so low that they completely disregard humanity, even though they say they’re experts in “healthcare?”
PROFIT. FOR THEIR PRIVATE INVESTORS.
5. While I can’t name for you the private investors getting rich off of this humanitarian crisis, I can name for you members of the advisory board of DCCP, which approves everything in the portfolio.
First up: Trump’s former Chief of Staff, John Kelly, who was named to the board LAST MONTH, and photographed riding a golf cart into a CHS child prison. So with his own eyes, he saw the conditions there. And he was cool with it all, because hey, there’s money to be made for his rich investor friends, and maybe even himself! Who knows! Can’t say for sure, so feel free to reasonably assume what you wish. I’m just stating facts here.
Coincidentally, prior to joining Trump in the WH, he was also a paid lobbyist for DCCP. Hmmmm...
6. So next up on the DCCP board: Richard L. Armitage, former U.S. deputy secretary of state; Michael Corbin; former ambassador to the United Arab Emirates; Michael V. Hayden, former director of the Central Intelligence Agency and of the National Security Agency; Donald M. Kerr Jr., former deputy director of science and technology at the CIA; Anthony C. Zinni, former commander-in-chief of the U.S. Central Command and former U.S. Envoy to the Middle East; and Stephen F. Loftus, former director of the Office of the Budget for the United States Navy.
Are y’all seeing any patterns here?
7. Michael Hayden, last June, said on the record he sees “commonality” between Nazi Germany’s separation of children at concentration camps and the Trump administration policy that is forcing children to be separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border.
"I know we’re not Nazi Germany, alright. But there is a commonality there, and a fear on my part ... We have standards we have to live up to,” Hayden told CNN’s “New Day.”
It appears he left those standards at the boardroom door, along with many other individuals that dance with greed and corruption on the line of the private and public sectors COMPLETELY UNCHECKED.
8. Last month, the same month Kelly got his new gig, the government awarded CHS a brand new, hush-hush contract worth $341 million, even though there had been tons of pressure to close it due to its conditions.
THERE WAS NO COMPETITIVE BIDDING FOR THE CONTRACT, and it happened under the radar.
9. Just two months before this, in March, CHS/Caliburn cancelled its IPO after registering with the SEC to sell $100m public shares. The CEO cited “market forces,” yet made it clear the company was thriving and growing.
——————
I’ll leave you to come to your own conclusions about all of this, or do more research. And I’ll post a ton of sources in the comments for those who actually think this administration is “draining the swamp,” or who want to debate the semantics of whether these ”centers” can reasonably be called child concentration camps or not without offending some non-brown people.
And for those of you who think children don’t deserve the most basic human rights because they’re not American: There’s a special place in hell for you, and I imagine hell to be a whole lot like this situation.
For those of you who are cool lining the pockets of private citizens in DC with YOUR tax dollars while dirty, hungry, sick children live imprisoned and stacked in cages without even a dime of your money going to pay for soap and toothbrushes for these kids like it was supposed to: I’m ashamed to share this country with you as legal citizens, and I think you’re disgustingly dumb. We failed you, too, but at least you got to go to school when you were a kid, and didn’t spend childhood dying in a cage.
America, NONE OF THIS IS OK. WAKE UP.

FRIDAY NIGHT UPDATE (!!)
1. As mentioned upon writing this, I originally posted my sources at the beginning of the comments thread at time of publishing -- before it became a large discussion. For your convenience and further reading, I am now moving my sources here + some extra homework for everyone to do (no particular order):
The people have spoken, so hope that helps you all wrap your minds around this in a more complete and credible way. Thank you to all who have participated in civil dialogue and shared this post. Let's keep it constructive, as we do not need to be even more destructive than the current situation.
2. THE POST IS ALREADY PUBLIC + SHAREABLE. Please do not ask me if you can share it -- I made it public, which is why you can see it. You should be able to share the original version. If you can't, refresh your app, run your updates or make sure you aren't still viewing a friend's protected share of the original itself. There is no possible way I can instruct all individuals on how to share it -- but I appreciate all of you who are moved by these words, and want to raise awareness about this distressing situation.
3. Your concern has given me hope. Do your homework. Look into your group investment portfolios, pensions, etc. Know where your money is invested. Call your legislators. Do anything but freak out to the point of being unproductive and histrionic. DO ANYTHING BUT BE AWFUL TO EACH OTHER.
Thank you. We are in this together.

Who is Kamala Harris Democratic candidate for President? Biography, ancestry, history by Mary Cummins

kamala harris, kamala devi harris, senator, democrat, president, oakland, california, prosecutor, jamaica india, born 1964, mother, father, ancestry, heritage, dna, family tree, mary cummins, husband, douglas emhoff, maya harris, lawyer, attorney, shyamaa gopalan iyer, gopalan, donald harris, brown, harris, finnegan, 
UPDATE: 06/28/2019 I can't believe I have to post this. Yes, Kamala Harris was really born in California. Here is her birth certificate information and her birth certificate. She was born here making her a natural citizen. Her father was born in Jamaica. Her mother was born in India. The city of Oakland is in Alameda County, California.

Kamala Harris birth certificate, kamala devi harris, alameda county, california, october 20 1964, president, democrat, candidate, donald trump, donald jasper harris, shyamala gopalan
Here is the actual birth certificate amended. Her middle name is listed as "Iyer" after a name of her mother. It was amended to just "D" for "Devi." They have the mother's name wrong, first name switched with last name.

Kamala Harris birth certificate, kamala devi harris, alameda county, california, october 20 1964, president, democrat, candidate, donald trump, donald jasper harris, shyamala gopalan
My birth certificate looks exactly like the one above. I was born in California 1965. That is an authentic birth certificate.

Now they are saying Kamala Harris is not "black" or "African American" but a "Jamaican" which would make her dad British which he was, is. Kamala Harris' father is Donald Jasper Harris. He likes to say he is not a descendant of Africans but he is. I don't know why he likes saying his ancestors were "slave owners." Mine unfortunately were. That's why there are so many black people with the last name "Cummins." The ancestors which he says are his were white people from Ireland who came to Jamaica to farm sugar cane with black slaves. See the link below for "Hamilton Brown." There is even a list of his slaves. Some think maybe Kamala Harris' father's grandmother Chrishy Brown could be the granddaughter of Hamilton Brown with one of his slaves. Colonel Hamilton Brown had a son Hamilton Brown Jr who married a white woman. Others in Brown's Town stated that many people took on the last name Brown. I so far haven't found any direct records.

The original inhabitants of Jamaica came from South America. They were wiped out by the Spanish through war, slavery and disease. For this reason the Spanish imported many black slaves from West Africa. The ratio was 20 black slaves per white person in Jamaica. After slavery was no longer legal or allowed they imported "slaves" and indentured servants from West Indies. Kamala Harris is 50% mixed African and 50% Indian from India.

Some are saying that Donald J Harris is a "white man." In some photos he looks lighter than he is. Same with Kamala's mother. Below are some pics of Donald Harris. Keep in mind people fade as they get older.

Here is a pic of Kamala, her mother and her paternal grandfather Oscar Joseph Harris. Everyone looks lighter here than they are. People also fade as they get older.



ORIGINAL: Kamala Devi Harris was born October 20, 1964 to Donald Jasper Harris and Shyamala Gopalan. Kamala has a younger sister Maya Lakshmi Harris born January 30, 1967. Maya Harris went to an expensive private Catholic high school called O'Dowd High School in 1984 which today costs $20,000/year. As both parents were PhD's they weren't poor. For Kamala to state she wouldn't be where she is today without being bused is a bit disingenuous. Both parents were well educated PhDs. Busing was actually a failure in terms of segregation. Plus Shyamala sent her own child Maya to a private school. She didn't want her daughter to go to the local public high school even though it was integrated at that time.

In fact her mother admits that her child was not an "impoverished girl from the rough side of town" but "a privileged child of foreign graduate students whose academic pursuits led them to UC Berkeley. Harris' mother, the daughter of a high-ranking Indian government official, would earn a doctorate in biological sciences and become a well-published breast cancer researcher. She is now based at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratories and lives in a spacious condominium in a historic building (492 Staten Ave 801, Oakland, CA, 2 bed, 2 bath, built 1929, $1.4M value today, Maya and Kamala sold for $710K in 2012) overlooking Oakland's Lake Merriff. Harris' father, Donald, earned his doctorate in economics, joined the faculty of Stanford University and advised the Jamaican government on economic issues." "Growing up Shyamala gave her daughters a worldly education, traveling frequently to visit family in India, the Caribbean and Europe. Harris attended high school in Montreal." Los Angeles Times, Oct 24, 2004, pg 108. The data came from Kamala and her mother.

I just got email where people said they didn't believe this. Here is the clipping from the LA Times. Kamala and her mother admit they weren't poor but rich and privileged. Kamala was not a poor black child bused to combat segregation. I was born in 1965. I also got bused and hated it as you had to wake up early and travel for long periods of time. Here Kamala and her mother admit they were wealthy and privileged. Now all of a sudden Kamala is a poor black child in Oakland.

Kamala Harris is rich and privileged. 
I'm really against Dems attacking Dems. Attack GOP and Trump but not each other. What really gets me in this case is Obama and Biden have supported Harris in her many campaigns. In fact in one campaign Obama is the one who called her the "prettiest" or "most beautiful" candidate. It wasn't Biden. Obama apologized but Harris said it wasn't necessary. If Biden had said that ....!

Also, without Biden, Obama wouldn't have been elected. People would not have elected blackish Obama without Biden. Obama needed an older conservative white Dem male on his ticket to win. Ifffff Harris is the candidate, which I'm doubting at this point, she will also need someone on her ticket. She could also really use the support of Biden who has the old white conservative Dem support. Harris needs to think about these things. The most important thing is to vote out Trump. I will vote for whoever is the Dem candidate but please, stop hurting Dems.

Shyamala owned the home at 3945 Turnley Ave, Oakland, CA in 1982. It was 3 bed, 2 bath, 1,500 sf home. She sold it in 1999 for $262,000.

Donald J Harris owned a house at 868 RICHARDSON CT, PALO ALTO CA 94303, 3 bed, 2 bath, 2,004 sf which he sold in 2001 for $880,000. These people weren't poor. They were both Dr's pulling in pretty good salaries.

Kamala's father Donald Jasper Harris was born August 23, 1938 in Saint Anne's Bay, Kingston, Jamaica. Donald studied economics at UC Berkeley in 1963. That same year Donald was in a training program at the U.N financed by the Institute of International Studies. He later became a professor in economics at Stanford University in Stanford, California. Donald wrote "Reflections of a Jamaican Father" which chronicles his life in Jamaica and his ancestry. He claims to be descended from "Hamilton Brown who is on record as plantation and slave owner and founder of Brown’s Town." Hamilton Brown was a slave owner from Ireland. Donald married Shyamala Gopalan July 5, 1963 and divorced in December 1971 all in California. Below is the marriage info from the newspaper.

Kamala's mother was Shyamala Gopalan Iyer 1938 - 2009. Below is Shyamala's obituary.

"Despite her 5-ft stature, hers was a commanding presence characterized by a sharp wit, keen sense of humor and endless depth of knowledge. She embodied an independent, confident and curious spirit that led her to travel alone to the U.S. as a teen; forge a career as a brilliant breast cancer researcher; join the Civil Rights Movement; introduce a generation of students of color to careers in science; and, through it all, raise two remarkable young women, by herself. That same, triumphant spirit was present when Dr. Shyamala G. Harris, after a courageous battle with cancer, passed away on Feb 11, 2009. She was 70. Born in south India, Shyamala's childhood was rich with music, culture, art and travel. As a young girl, she won a national gold medal for singing classical Indian music. The daughter of Rajam and P.V. Gopalan, Shyamala's father served as a diplomat in the Indian government. Through his travels, Shyamala developed a deep appreciation for cultural diversity and egalitarianism. Precocious and determined, she started school as a toddler and received her undergraduate degree at Delhi Univ. when she was just 19. She left home to study abroad at UC Berkeley, earning her Ph.D. in nutrition and endocrinology at age 25. Known by her colleagues as innovative, insightful, generous and loyal, Shyamala spent her early career conducting research at Berkeley's Dept of Zoology and Cancer Research Lab. She returned to the U.C. campus for the last decade of her work at the Lawrence Berkeley Lab. Her talent as a breast cancer researcher took her to universities around the world, from the Univ. of Illinois and Univ. of Wisconsin, to France, Italy, and a 16-year tenure at the Lady Davis Institute for Med Research at the Jewish General Hosp and the Dept of Med at McGill Univ. in Montreal. She made substantial contributions to the field of hormones and breast cancer, publishing her research in countless journals and receiving numerous honors. A frequent National Institure of Health peer reviewer and Federal Advisory Committee site visit team member, Shyamala's distinction led to her service on the President's Special Comm'n on Breast Cancer. One of her greatest contributions was her seminal work in isolating and characterizing the progesterone receptor gene in a mouse which was a momentous finding that transformed our understanding of the hormone-responsiveness of breast tissue. Her discovery sparked a plethora of advancements regarding the role of progesterone and its cellular receptor in breast biology and cancer. Perhaps Shyamala's most enduring legacy in science stemmed from her efforts as a teacher. Dozens of students populated her lab through the years. Often of color and the first in their families to pursue careers in science, these students eagerly sought Shyamala's mentorship, which often stretched beyond the lab to encompass lessons in life. Whether helping a student negotiate the UC bureaucracy, find an affordable apartment, or enjoy a home cooked meal, Shyamala was there. She took tremendous pride in their love of learning and later successes, as many grew to take on leadership positions in medicine and science. And then there were the quiet acts of kindness she performed without fanfare or notoriety, such as counseling and comforting African-American women battling breast cancer. Her passion for science was augmented by a fervent commitment to social justice. While a student at Berkeley in the '60s, she became fully engaged in the Civil Rights Movement, leading to a lifelong fight against injustice, racial discrimination and intolerance. She instilled these values in her daughters, who in turn have dedicated their lives to the pursuit of justice and equality - one as the first female elected District Attorney of SF and the other as vice president of Peace and Social Justice at the Ford Foundation in NY. But for all she accomplished in her life and career, the roles Shyamala cherished most were of "Mommy" and "Grandma." She relished every moment she spent with her daughters and her self-described "greatest gift," her granddaughter. The void Shyamala leaves is deep. Missed and loved by those she left behind, her spirit lives on in her daughters, Kamala and Maya; son-in-law, Tony; granddaughter, Meena; mother, Rajam; brother, Balachandran; sisters, Sarala and Mahalakshmi; niece, Sharada; and many extended family members and friends."

Kamala Harris' paternal grandparents were "Maas" Oscar Joseph Harris 1914-1976 Brown's Town, Jamaica and Miss Beryl Finegan. I haven't been able to find much about them via records. The pic I have is over exposed.

Kamala Harris' maternal grandparents were P.V. Gopalan a high ranking Indian government diplomat and Rajam. P.V. Gopalan died February 16, 2011 in India. He was able to send his daughters to college then graduate school in the states.

Kamala Harris' paternal great grandparents were allegedly Joseph Alexander Harris 1874-1939 and Chrishy Christiana Brown. I base this on what Kamala's father stated. If that's the case they both appear to be descended from the same Colonel Hamilton Brown family. Kamala Harris' father stated the same. I'm not so sure of this as Hamilton Brown was white and Irish. His wives were white. Other children were white. Not only that but the original inhabitants of Jamaica were the Arawak tribe who came from South America. They were enslaved by the Spanish. They were basically wiped out by disease and war. That is why Spain imported many West African slaves to Jamaica. At one point slaves outnumbered others by 20 to one. Kamala's father claims his heritage is not from Africa.

Col. Hamilton Brown was born in Ireland 1775. He went to Jamaica to become a plantation owner growing sugar cane. At the time there was slave labor in Jamaica and Hamilton Brown was a slave owner. I see lists of slaves that he owned. They are all listed as either "Creole" or "African" but they are all "negro" with two "mulatto" females. Here are the names he gave to his slaves, i.e. males, March, Richmond, Hercules, Andrimaque, Sunday, Welcome, Jackson Dublin, Quashie, Gilblas, Goodluck, September, Fox, Caeson, Charles, Profit, Industry, Frank, Louisiana, females, Emmy, Matilda, Charlotte. He had 177 slaves as of 1832. Below is the "Former British Colonial Dependencies, Slave Registers, 1813-1834."

Kamala Harris, slaves owned by Hamilton Brown in Jamaica 1832

Ireland was against slave ownership at the time. Hamilton Brown told people in Ireland not to interfere in his slaves as they were better taken care of than poor people in Ireland or England at the time. There are mentions of slaves being whipped and beaten to force them to work.

When slavery ended in Jamaica in 1834 and slaves were freed the Brown's urged Irish people to come to Jamaica promising work. These newly arrived Irish basically became slaves due to low pay. Many also died from tropical diseases. The Irish was government was against this. At that time they also brought indentured servants, slaves from India to Jamaica. This is why Jamaica is a multi-cultural nation.

After slavery was abolished in the United States and slaves were set free they were able to choose their own last name. Many chose the last name of their owner. Others chose the last name of famous slave owners such as Hamilton, Brown, Washington and Smith. This is why these names are so popular. Perhaps that is what happened in this case in Jamaica. I don't know why else Kamala's father would brag that he is descended from slave owners and is not African. Whatever the case this is the data I found so far. The generations go from fully white English, Irish to the next generation being black. Check back as I'm sure I'll be updating it when I figure this out. I'm basing this on what the father said which could be, appears to be wrong. Based on what I'm seeing Kamala Harris is half African American with heritage via Jamaica. There is an outspoken African American who says she is not African American. Maybe this is a GOP plant just to attack Kamala. Her ancestry on her mother's side is correct.

Who is Sarah Fabian, Sarah Bernadette Fabian the Justice Dept lawyer, attorney who wants children kept in unsafe, unsanitary cages?

Sarah B Fabian, attorney, lawyer, Department of Justice, court, immigrant, children, detained, cages, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, safe and sanitary conditions, detention, family, history, biography, Dr. David Robert Fabian, Mary Ann Bestler Fabian, Kate, Matthew, Patrick Fabian, Benedict Bestler, Bernadeette Neis, aichelmann, major, mary cummins, california
BREAKING STORY. Check back for updates.

06/26/2019 Sarah Fabian tried to clarify her position in regard to immigrant children in custody. The government lost a 2017 case which found the government violated the 1997 consent decree known as the Flores Act. The Flores Act dictates how immigrant children are to be treated in custody. Fabian argued that the decree does not specifically enumerate those items, i.e. soap, toothpaste, as mandatory.

As a Justice Department lawyer, Fabian’s job involves defending the federal government in legal cases regardless of personal views on a given topic. Fabian had this to say to her Facebook friends.

“I will say that I personally believe that we should do our very best to care for kids while they are in our custody, and I try to always represent that value in my work,” Fabian writes. “A vast majority of the work that I do is not public, but I strive to help people by my participation in the process.” “I think I share many people’s anger and fear at times over the future of our country, and I want to work to make it better too.”

That said, Sarah Fabian knowingly chose to take this case for the government to argue those points. The goal of the litigation was to take away the rights of immigrant children to a bond hearing and proper care.

Here is the opinion/case that Fabian is appealing.

https://cdn.ca9.uscourts.gov/datastore/opinions/2017/07/05/17-55208.pdf

One issue appears to be allowing the children to have a bond hearing. "For example, the TVPRA allows children to be placed in secure detention facilities only if they pose a safety risk to themselves or others, or have committed a criminal offense." Sounds like these kids should not be in these detention facilities.

The settlement agreement deals with how immigrant children shall be held and treated. It mentions the very poor treatment of immigrant children in detention when they have a parent in the states who wants the child in their custody. The US government for some reason wants to keep these kids in detention. Whoever is running those $775/night detention camps has clearly donated a lot of money to politicians.

"The HSA grants ORR responsibility for ensuring that “the interests of the child are considered in decisions and actions relating to the care and custody of an unaccompanied alien child.” "Our nation’s “special obligation to ensure that these children are treated humanely and fairly.” "Like the
Settlement, the HSA and TVPRA emphasize placing children in the least restrictive environment, and require that the government ensure that they receive safe and appropriate care."

The final ruling in the opinion had to do with bond hearings and safe and appropriate care. The government was trying to strip immigrant children the right to a bond hearing and the right to be released from detention. Sarah Fabian tried to argue that there was no specific definition for safe and appropriate care. She argued that soap, toothpaste, clean clothes, being able to bathe are not specifically listed in the agreement so they are not mandatory. As the Judges stated during oral argument one assumes enough food, soap, toothbrushes, being able to bathe...are all considered "safe and appropriate care." The gov will lose the case. Can't wait to read that opinion.

"Thus, we hold that the statutes have not terminated the Flores Settlement’s bond-hearing requirement for unaccompanied minors. We therefore affirm the decision of the district court
granting plaintiffs’ motion to enforce Paragraph 24A of the Flores Settlement in its entirety."


ORIGINAL: Sarah Bernadette Fabian was born December 17, 1975. She is the oldest child of Dr. David Robert Fabian aka Dr. Deborah Rae Fabian, an orthopedic surgeon who worked in the military, and Mary Ann Bestler Fabian, a teacher. Sarah B Fabian's siblings are Kathleen "Kate," Matthew "Matt" and Patrick Fabian. Her brothers are married. Her father remarried to Leslie in 1991. Leslie wrote a book about Dr. Fabian. Dr. Fabian spoke out against the trans ban in the military.

Sarah B Fabian graduated from Amherst College in 1998. She graduated from George Washington University law school in 2004. She was admitted to the Massachusetts Bar in 2004, District of Columbia Bar 2007 and the US Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces. Currently Sarah Fabian works as a Senior Litigation Counsel for the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Immigration Litigation.

June 18, 2019 Sarah Fabian argued before the three judges on the bench, Judge Wallace Tashima, Judge William Fletcher, and Judge Marsha Berzon, in a courtroom in San Francisco, California. At issue was the 1997 Flores Settlement Agreement which addresses the treatment of minors in custody of the Department of Homeland Security. Fabian argued that children don't need soap, toothbrushes or toothpaste. The Court disagreed with Fabian.

I'm sure the US wanted a female attorney to argue this. They do the same with male rape defendants. Sarah Fabian didn't have to take the case. She could have passed. She took the case to get ahead? Sorry, but there's not enough money that would have made me take this disgusting case. Sarah has no problem being used by the government to harm immigrant children. She could have and should have passed on the case. This is now her disgusting legacy.

This is an appeal of the original 1985 case. Sarah Fabian has handled 123 cases in federal court since 2009. She's been handling immigration cases since 2011.

06/18/2019 40 ARGUED AND SUBMITTED TO A. WALLACE TASHIMA, WILLIAM A. FLETCHER and MARSHA S. BERZON. [11336177] (JMR) [Entered: 06/18/2019 03:35 PM]



Sarah Fabian is an Aunt to her brother's child. Her mother taught elementary school. She's been around babies, toddlers and children all of her life. Her family are immigrants from Germany on both sides. She's allegedly a Christian. How can immigrant children not need soap, toothbrush and toothpaste when American children need those things?

In Sarah's Facebook page this is her profile image. She cares about women's rights. She also cares for gay rights, trans rights and animal rights. Why not also care about the rights of immigrant children?



Previously Sarah Fabian was involved in the Justice Department litigation regarding separating children from their parents. The Court ordered Fabian to reunite the children. From that litigation.

"The fate of hundreds of children ripped from their migrant parents was still up in the air Friday, but a Trump administration lawyer working on the case has a side gig to attend to — dog-sitting.

At a hearing in San Diego Federal Court Friday, the Trump administration asked Judge Dana Sabraw to extend deadlines he set last month for officials to reunify the hundreds of migrant families separated because of its zero tolerance policy. The first deadline is July 10.

During the two-hour hearing, Sabraw asked Justice Department lawyer Sarah Fabian and a lawyer representing the American Civil Liberties Union about their availability over the weekend.

“We will do whatever. We will stay the weekend,” said the lawyer representing the ACLU, which successfully sued the Trump administration over its family-shattering practice last month.

Fabian said she had other obligations.

“I have dog-sitting responsibilities that require me to go back to Colorado but I will be back Monday,” she said, according to a transcript published by NBC News.

Dog sitting is more important than reuniting children with their parents.

Updated family tree below. Sarah Bernadette Fabian is an immigrant. Both sides of her family came from Germany. If someone treated her ancestors as poorly as she's treating these immigrants, Sarah Fabian probably wouldn't exist today. It's difficult to imagine that a child of immigrants would work hard to help the government harm immigrant children. Maybe she doesn't care because they're brown and not white. It looks like Sarah's family were German Christians.

One more generation back. Her family is from Germany. Were they fleeing poverty, famine, war? They were probably fleeing the same things the current immigrants are fleeing.

Flop houses in shitty areas sold, rehabbed and re-rented as "luxury" rooms in Los Angeles - cause of rise in homeless

A flop house owned by "Second Chance" at 1409-1411 W 25th St, Los Angeles, CA 90007 sold late 2018 for $749,000. Months before that it sold for $485K. It was originally owned by a woman who is now elderly or dead. It's located off an alley and behind an auto store right off Vermont across from a Jack in the Box and a liquor store. It was sold as a two unit with four beds, two baths each. It was broken down into eight rooms rented separately to near homeless people. They would panhandle across the street at the Jack in the Box or in the Ralphs parking lot. People were frequently passed out in front of the building or they were smoking pot, doing drugs on the porch. It was built in 1904 and is in a Historic Preservation Overlay Zone. It was a total fixer. Below are some pics of it before. It was boarded up to keep the ex-tenants and homeless out.

They renovated the place and it's already listed for rent. Here's the ad listing. Mind you it's in a very, very dangerous area where people have been murdered. Someone was murdered at the Jack in the Box across the street. Another person murdered a block up. Within last six months someone murdered two blocks away. A USC couple murdered two blocks to the west. Cars are broken into every night. People steal mail. It's within 500 feet of the 10 freeway which is dangerous for your health. It's also located next to a very, very busy intersection. The air pollution, sound, constant police sirens, police helicopters, people fighting, yelling... The address of the owner is a Marcus & Millichap office. The people who were evicted from there now live on the parkway and still hang out there as they are now homeless. The spelling errors below are not mine. The site seems to be run by Chinese people as it's also in Chinese.

"Enjoy private relaxation and high-quility living experience in this luxury house close to USC and DTLA. This duplex is located in UPC Patrol Areas (DPS patrols) which provides safe and private space for every resident. Situated in a convenient location, surrounding by multiple restaurants, 3 minutes’ walk to Ralphs and 4 minutes to USC by riding. This duplex is equipped with all the amenities needed to feel right at home. Brand new mattress, beddings, and solid wood furniture will be provided to giving you a place for the most comfortable rest and study.With a cozy living room on second floor including sofa, coffee table and carpet."

It's already for re-sale for $1,200,000. It's allegedly master leased to a student housing group. It's actually illegal to rent out the rooms separately as this is not zoned for a boarding house. I wonder if leasing  to a corporation who subleases to individuals gets it out of rent control? The master lease includes 3% increase in rent per year which is Los Angeles City rent control. Do the sublessees have tenant rights since they aren't the main tenant? Maybe this is how they are getting the units out of LA City rent control. Per rent control even if you rent a room in a boarding house for 30 days plus you are covered by rent control. By July 2019 the landlord can increase your rent by 4%.

They said they added heat and cooling, new copper plumbing, electrical. They say there are two units with four beds and four baths each. I think only two baths are legal. Everything else was done without permits. They state it was built in 1907. It was built 1904 and moved in 1907.

I pity anyone who rents a room there for $1,400/month. There are eight rooms. You have to rent for 12 months so it's not student housing. The site advertises itself as communal living. It's now called "The Zoe." I bet they paint over graffiti every morning and roll homeless people off the grass. Whoever cleaned out the building just dumped everything on the sidewalk and parkway across the street in front of Jack in the Box. The homeless people didn't do that. The contractor did. This is where all the trash and dumping is coming from. When you evict a poor person they can't afford to rent another place, move, pay for storage so they have to leave everything. Landlord, contractor dumps it on the street and blames the tenants. The tenants wouldn't dump their stuff on the street. They'd just leave it. I've appraised properties like this with evicted poor tenants. They leave almost everything because they can't afford to move it and have no place to move it to.

And this is why there was a huge increase in homeless. Investors are buying slum buildings cheap, renovating and re-renting for market rent. This is the real estate cycle of revitalization though some call it gentrification. It's good for the community and city bringing jobs, money, taxes, business but it displaces a few of the poorest people in the city.

I'll post a few more of these that I've seen. Chinese investors are buying up a lot of slum homes, apartments to turn into individual room rentals. When you ask them what are their plans for the building they lie and tell you they are going to move into it ;-)
