Where Ghislaine Maxwell hid out in style
Ghislaine Maxwell's home sits at the end of a narrow, half-mile dirt driveway.

It's lined with 'No Trespassing' signs and barred by a padlocked metal fence.

A stone stands near the gate with the words 'Tucked Away.'

On Tuesday (July 2), Maxwell was arrested on charges she lured girls as young as 14 years old for the late and disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein to sexually abuse.

Maxwell had been hiding out in style since December.

A listing of her Massachusetts home said it had cathedral ceilings, a floor-to-ceiling fieldstone fireplace, and a 'wall of glass' overlooking the 156 acre property.

The FBI scorned her choice of getaway spot in the home that officials said she purchased for $1 million in cash.

"We learned she had slithered away to a gorgeous property in New Hampshire, continuing to live a life of privilege while her victims live with the trauma inflicted upon them years ago. We moved when we were ready and Miss Maxwell was arrested without incident. Like Epstein, Miss Maxwell chose to blatantly disregard the law and her responsibilities as an adult, using whatever means she had at her disposal to lure vulnerable youth into behavior they should never have been exposed and which creates lasting harm."

Maxwell's home seems to have been secluded enough to keep her out of sight in Bradford, a small town of less than 2,000 people.

Drone Footage Shows Luxurious New Hampshire Retreat Where Ghislaine Maxwell Arrested
Ghislaine Maxwell, the British socialite and one-time associate of Jeffrey Epstein, was arrested by the FBI on Thursday, July 2, on charges that she assisted Epstein’s sexual abuse of minors and helped him groom young girls.

She was arrested at a luxurious New Hampshire home that was sold in December 2019 for approximately $1 million via Four Seasons Sotheby’s Realty. The listing has since been removed from the Sotheby’s site. Maxwell purchased the house using cash through a “carefully anonymized LLC,” according to authorities.

The indictment of Maxwell alleges that, between 1994 and 1997, she “facilitated Jeffrey Epstein’s access to minor victims by… inducing and enticing, and aiding and abetting the inducement and enticement of, multiple minor victims.” Maxwell has denied any wrongdoing.

Why U.S. F-35s, Stealth Bombers and Attack Drones Could Fail in a War
Fighter jets, stealth bombers, attack drones and air-traveling missiles all need to "operate at speed" in a fast-changing great power conflict era. What that means is that "sensor to shooter" time (how fast data can go from a sensor to a war-fighter) needs to be drastically sped up. Without that speed, warfighters won't be able to react as quickly to threats and it will be harder to win.

New mutation of coronavirus spreads disease more easily, warns Fauci
A mutation of coronavirus able to spread more easily may have emerged, America's top infectious disease expert has warned as Texas made mask-wearing in public mandatory. Dr Anthony Fauci, who sits on the White House coronavirus task force, said there is data to suggest the existence of a new mutation of Covid-19 which is more "transmissible". He cautioned that scientists are still trying to confirm its existence and it does not appear to be more damaging for people who catch that version. However the potential existence of a mutation which spreads more easily is a cause for concern as the United States grapples with record highs of new daily coronavirus cases. Texas, one of the states seeing a surge in both case numbers and hospitalisations, announced new restrictions ordering the use of face masks in certain situations. Texans in counties with 20 or more Covid-19 cases - the vast majority of the state - must have their nose and mouth covered in outdoor public spaces or a building open to the public.
