Weinstein Company May Have
Known About Payoffs Since 2015

New York Times, by Megan Twohey

With Harvey Weinstein fired amid escalating allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct, the business he helped create is consumed not just with what he is accused of doing, but with what other company leaders knew and how they responded. On Tuesday, his brother and co-founder, Bob Weinstein, and the company’s president, David Glasser, told concerned employees in a video conference call that they were shocked by the allegations and unaware of payments made to women who complained of unwanted touching, sexual harassment and other over-the-line behavior, according to several employees who spoke on the condition of anonymity. Soon after, Bob

FTA:
David Boies, a lawyer who represented Mr. Weinstein when his contract was up for renewal in 2015, said in an interview that the board and the company were made aware at the time of three or four confidential settlements with women.

The upcoming suit by Weinstein against the company re his being summarily fired should be interesting.

HENRICO COUNTY, Va. – The Short Pump middle school football team is forfeiting the rest of their season after a racially charged video showed students simulating sexual acts inside the boy’s locker room. (Snip) A parent of one of the football players, who was not a part of acts, told CBS 6 that white students pinned black students to the locker room floor and benches and dry humped them, while yelling racist comments. A video of the incident was posted on Snapchat. In the video, text placed over the simulated acts read, “We gonna (expletive) the black outta these African-American children from Uganda.”

President Trump plans to spend at least $430,000 of his personal funds to help cover the mounting legal costs incurred by White House staff and campaign aides related to the ongoing investigations of Russian meddling in last year’s election, a White House official said. The Washington Post reported last month that the Republican National Committee had spent roughly that amount to pay lawyers representing Trump and his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., in the multiple investigations. The White House official said Trump’s pledge is not meant as a reimbursement to the RNC, but that it does not preclude Trump from doing that

O’Reilly Settled New Harassment
Claims, Then Fox Renewed His Contract
New York Times, by Emily Steel and Michael S. Schmidt    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 10/21/2017 5:58:23     Post Reply
Last January, six months after Fox News ousted its chairman amid a sexual harassment scandal, the network’s top-rated host at the time, Bill O’Reilly, struck a $32 million agreement with a longtime network analyst to settle new sexual harassment allegations, according to two people briefed on the matter — an extraordinarily large amount for such cases. Although the deal has not been previously made public, the network’s parent company, 21st Century Fox, acknowledges that it was aware of the woman’s complaints about Mr. O’Reilly. They included allegations of repeated harassment, a nonconsensual sexual relationship and the sending of gay pornography and

When the first half of the 21st century is way back enough for a history to be written unencumbered by agenda, President Barack Obama will be remembered as the worst thing that ever happened to the Democrat Party. And to the NFL.* If you think that is a stretch, hear me out… Thanks to George W. Bush’s terrible second term, two unbelievably awful Republican opponents in John McCain and Mitt Romney, not to mention the charisma and impressive political skills as the most leftwing senator in the country, Barry O won two national elections and did so by impressive margins.

(Orange County, CA) Breitbart News Executive Chairman and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon delivered a fiery keynote address to about 500 people at the opening dinner of the California Republican Party’s Fall Convention Friday night, praising President Trump and declaring war on the GOP establishment. Stepping out from behind the podium, comfortably walking about the stage, Bannon gave a forty-minute-long speech covering a myriad of issues that began with effusive praise of President Trump, the importance of winning and how victories beget victories, and about the great challenge ahead in taking on the, “corporatists, lobbyists, consultants, and the politicians

White House chief of staff General John Kelly sternly lectured Congressman Frederica Wilson for listening to and politicizing President Donald Trump’s phone call to the grieving widow of a slain soldier. “It stuns me that a member of Congress would have listened in on the conversation – absolutely stuns me,” Kelly said, “And I thought at least that was sacred.” Kelly delivered a stirring speech at the White House press briefing about the sacred duty of people serving in the military and the president’s role in comforting grieving family members and called Wilson a “selfish member of Congress” for politicizing the phone

With over 99 per cent of the vote counted, the party of the populist Czech billionaire described by some as the ‘Czech Trump’ has achieved a considerable victory in the national legislative elections — with the mainstream left Social Democrat party achieving their worst result in national history. With an estimated fortune of over four billion, ANO [YES] party leader Andrej Babis is even wealthier than U.S. president Donald Trump, and has used his wealth since the 2011 founding of his party in a crusade to change Czech politics. Originally founded to oppose government corruption, the party has since come to

New York Magazine: Democrats
Commit Suicide By Favoring Migrants
Breitbart Big Government, by Neil Munro    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 10/21/2017 5:42:20     Post Reply
Democrats are committing political suicide by refusing to moderate their migrant-first policy agenda, says the liberal intellectual who launched the push for same-sex marriage. Andrew Sullivan, the immigrant British-born author who championed the same-sex movement, writes in New York Magazine: Democrats in 2017, in general, tend to criticize the use of immigration enforcement, and tend to side with those accused of violating immigration law, as a broad matter of principle beyond opposing the particular actions of the administration … Democrats are no longer as willing to attack “illegal immigration” as a fundamental problem anymore. This is, to be blunt, political suicide … In

The United States Air Force could recall as many as 1,000 retired military pilots to active-duty service to address an acute shortage in its ranks. President Donald Trump signed an executive order Friday allowing the Air Force to call back to service up to 1,000 retired aviation officers who wish to return, the White House and the Pentagon announced. By law, only 25 retired pilots can be recalled through voluntary programs to serve in any one branch. Trump´s executive order temporarily removes this limit by expanding a state of national emergency declared by President George W. Bush after the terrorist attacks on

President Trump announced Saturday morning that he planned to release the tens of thousands of never-before-seen documents left in the files related to President John F. Kennedy’s assassination held by the National Archives and Records Administration. “Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened,” Trump tweeted early Saturday. Experts have been speculating for weeks about whether Trump would disclose the documents. The 1992 Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act required that the millions of pages, many of them contained in CIA and FBI documents, be published

Hillary Clinton admits she “really tried to get out of going” to President Trump’s inauguration. The former first lady and failed Democratic presidential nominee said on BBC One’s “The Graham Norton Show” that she asked the remaining former presidents if they were going to the Jan. 20 inauguration in an effort to justify not showing up herself. “I really tried to get out of going,” Mrs. Clinton said. “We thought ‘OK, maybe others aren’t going.’” She explained that it’s tradition for former presidents and first ladies to attend a presidential inauguration, regardless of party, to show “support” and “continuity of

Perhaps as startling as the revelation that the FBI was investigating the Hillary Clinton/Russia/Uranium One collusion and that key figures like Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe knew about it and said nothing, is the refusal by Attorney General Jeff Sessions to remove the non-disclosure agreement gag order on the FBI informant who arguably could put Bill and Hillary Clinton and a few others in federal prison. It was said the Jeff Sessions recused himself from all things Russian because of election campaign conflicts but is it really because he thought it

Bowe Bergdahl, the Army deserter who walked off his base in Afghanistan, is whining that the US treated him worse than the Taliban. The 31-year-old sergeant told British TV journalist Sean Langan in an interview reported in The Sunday Times of London: “At least the Taliban were honest enough to say, ‘I’m the guy who’s gonna cut your throat.’ ” That got him less upset than the “administrative duties” the Army assigned him while awaiting trial, he said. “Here, it could be the guy I pass in the corridor who’s going to sign the paper that sends me away for

Justin Skye, from Fort Greene, took a knee at the end of the anthem at the Barclays Center on Friday night before the Nets and Magic took the court. The crowd reacted to her actions with mostly boos, according to the Associated Press. Specifically, Skye got down on one knee while singing the final line “and the home of the brave,” according to Metro News. Nets players locked arms while she sang. Skye is a recording

Hillary Clinton didn´t win the presidency, but she´s in line for something almost as interesting -- the crown of "Wonder Woman." The Women´s Media Center, co-founded by feminist Gloria Steinem, told us that it is giving the latest Democratic presidential candidate its first "Wonder Woman Award" for her "extraordinary accomplishments" and public service. (Snip) "Like Wonder Woman, she seems to have superhuman strength, resilience, and courage," said the group in a reference to the famous comic and TV character.

New York — An upcoming memoir from Sen. John McCain has taken on new meaning since he first decided to write it. “The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and Other Appreciations” is scheduled to come out in April, Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press on Friday. The publisher quietly signed up the book in February, without any formal announcement. In July, McCain disclosed he had been diagnosed with brain cancer and last month he said the prognosis was “very poor.” McCain, 81, was re-elected to a sixth term in the Senate in 2016. “This memoir will be about what matters most to him,

Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has completed his one-week sex rehab program. A psychologist taking part in his treatment told TMZ that Weinstein would remain in Arizona for a month or so after his week of outpatient ´intensive therapy´ ends on Saturday. Weinstein was ´invested in the program´ and had focused on ´dealing with his anger, his attitude toward others, boundary work and the beginnings of work on empathy,´ the psychologist told the outlet with Weinstein´s permission. The psychologist downplayed previous reports that the 65-year-old film producer had fallen asleep in group sessions and ranted about conspiracy theories. ´He showed up for all the

Former President George W. Bush emerged from retirement on Thursday to stage a broad attack on President Donald Trump and the movement that supports him. Without mentioning Trump by name, Bush accused him of “casual cruelty” in political discourse, of distorting nationalism into “nativism,” and of emboldening bigotry and white supremacy. He called for a renewed commitment to American global leadership and domestic citizenship. It was a call to national unity — against Trump and his supporters, who were reduced to labels and caricatures: “protectionism,” “isolationist sentiments,” and the like. “Too often, we judge other groups by their worst examples

Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) is not backing off her claim that President Trump disrespected a fallen soldier´s widow earlier this week. Trump phoned Myeshia Johnson to share his condolences for the death of her husband Sgt. La David Johnson, who died during an Islamic State ambush in Niger earlier this month. Wilson says she overheard some of the president´s words via speakerphone and swears she heard him insensitively say that Johnson "knew what he signed up for." President Trump rebuked Wilson on Twitter and called her a liar, but she has not changed her story.
