It’s about the survival of the Christian nation.” “We are in mortal danger,” Linda said. “We are in a religious war,” Sheila said. Linda nodded. “We may have to fight and die for our faith,” Sheila said. “I hope it doesn’t come to that, but if it does, we will.”

Predators of New York – Talking Points Memo

The heir of another of these families appears to be a serial killer. The head of another of these families – sort of a cadet branch from New Jersey – got in a dispute with his brother-in-law and hired a prostitute to have sex with the brother-in-law, film the sex and blackmail him. That guy is Jared Kushner’s father. All three went to prison. That’s just a subsection of the stories which police uncovered, certainly just scratching the surface.
