For more than 25 years, Harvey Weinstein was a prolific fundraiser for the Democratic Party leadership. When the time came for that leadership to respond to a flurry of allegations of sexual assault and harassment by Weinstein, it became apparent that either Weinstein had invested poorly — or all too well. The New York Times ran its first exposé on the disgraced Hollywood mogul at the end of a $2.2 million run of personal and bundled political donations, which made Weinstein a very familiar and popular figure among Democrats. Weinstein backed Democrats with significant national profiles, who rushed to embrace
They may not be able to ignore it but they cannot face it either. They have no believable answer for their ignorance of their previous "good friend´s" behavior.
Either they are clueless idiots or they knew, took the money and connections, and did nothing. My bet is on the latter. Hillary has a history of ignoring the grievous faults of men who she finds useful. She lectures us about Trump´s frat boy talk but ignores BJ´s abuse and rape of women. If you look carefully at the Left, they falsely accuse others of doing what they actually are doing, often to a far worse degree. Hollyweird is a cesspool of abuse of women (and men), drugs, power, and probably animals. Yet they trot out with their smug, superior glitz and sneer at the rest of us. This is what the dems and especially the media, now a wing of the entertainment industry, has linked itself to. Can they report honestly on themselves? We KNOW they cannot. Can dems be uncorrupted by the cesspool? We KNOW they cannot.
The dems problem is that their true face has been exposed and they cannot cover it up nor can they change it. It is another truth about and another blow to a crumbling and irredeemably corrupt party.
The funny thing is there´s absolutely no doubt Harvey is a hardcore,demented leftist.Party bosses are probably worried as hell some underage girls will pop up in this.He makes Weiner look like a choir boy.
For 25 years Harvey Weinstein was the Democrat Party´s "Go To Guy" in Hollywood. Everybody knew all about who and what he was and they let this creep have his way with women without saying a word. For 25 years all we have heard about is "The War on Women". Twenty five years and the Party of Destruction sat back and did nothing.
They can ignore it just like they ignore the real causes of black poverty in the US, the real issue about gun control, etc. The Dems have already, with their media allies, made this about Weinstein and Trump, and how all sides need to stand up to this abuse...blah blah blah.
OBTW - how is it "courageous) for some successful actresses with millions in their bank accounts to come out years/decades later and complain about Harvey´s behavior toward them?
America has much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving: Peace, prosperity and what Abraham Lincoln called the “inestimable blessings” of “the Great Disposer of Events.” But if you really want to talk about inestimable blessings this year, just ask a political journalist. Hoo, boy… In a profession where we are accustomed to scrounging for news, especially in electoral off years, we are operating in a time of unparalleled abundance with scandals, leaks, partisan fratricide, shutdown threats and on and on and on. The Time of Cofeve may not be very good for the republic, but it is most certainly fascinating to cover.
If you listen to the nattering nabobs of social media negativity, and you shouldn’t, you might get the false impression that our dreams of a conservative future are imploding. You would be wrong. There is a lot for conservatives to be thankful for, and we’re winning. To paraphrase noted tax reform advocate Wesley Snipes in Passenger 57, always bet on red. No. 1: Be Thankful That Hillary Is Not Our President. Every day, it is a joy to awaken, unlike Hillary Clinton, without a hangover. Oh yes, and also to awaken knowing that Felonia von Pantsuit is not, and will never be, our president. Can you imagine if she were?
Whether we realize it or not, we all have an image of the first Thanksgiving that’s more or less a cartoon we were taught in grade school. In the autumn of 1621, a plucky group of black-clad, buckle-shoed Pilgrims and stoic yet friendly Indians feasted together after a successful autumn harvest, heralding a promising new friendship between their two peoples. The actual history of the first Thanksgiving is of course nothing like the grade-school story—it’s far more interesting and complex. While it undermines the bowdlerized, multicultural narrative of peaceful Indians and well-meaning Puritans living together in harmony,
Today is Thanksgiving, and it’s a perfect time to remember what makes America great. Hopefully, today will be full of spending time with family and friends, eating plenty of great food, drinking plenty of beer and watching the Detroit Lions whip the hell out of the Minnesota Vikings. Thanksgiving is further proof that America is the absolute best. You know who won’t be celebrating Thanksgiving November 23 this year? The rest of the world. You know what else the rest of the world hasn’t done? Win Super Bowls, land on the moon, win NBA championships, invent the Culver’s butter burger, have March Madness,
This Thanksgiving, for the first time since I was a toddler, I will not be watching any NFL games. I find the League’s disrespect for our country and our national anthem reprehensible and a totally unwarranted injection of partisan anti-police politics into a cherished sport. I’m hardly alone in that belief, as a recent Remington Research poll found that 80 percent of Americans responded that they’d like to see less politics during sporting events. Most of the blame for this mess clearly lies with Commissioner Roger Goodell, whose feckless lack of leadership allowed this issue to fester despite clear NFL rules
In news that will shock no one, Jared Kushner is not going to rewrite all of America’s trade agreements, modernize technology throughout the federal government, remodel workforce-training programs, and end the opioid epidemic. Now he’s just focusing on solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict – and it doesn’t sound like that’s going very well either. In the first few months of his administration President Trump seemed to dump just about every thorny task he encountered onto his son-in-law, who has no government experience. But on Tuesday Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman reported that Kushner lost a tremendous amount of influence
John Conyers Jr. has a long and complicated legacy in southeast Michigan and the U.S. Congress. He has been an undisputed hero of the civil rights movement, a legislator of uncommon influence and power, and an aging icon whose felonious wife and sometimes-wandering pace have confounded his place in history. But the revelations of Conyers’ alleged sexual harassment scandal and his documented use of taxpayer dollars to bury that scandal, in violation of congressional ethics rules, is less ambiguous. It is the kind of behavior that can never be tolerated in a public official, much less an elected representative of the people.
John Kerry turns out to have been even more of an idiot than we’d thought. Recordings have just surfaced of a speech the then-secretary of state gave in Dubai last December — where he explained that the failure to reach an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal is . . . Israel’s fault. “The Palestinians have done an extraordinary job of remaining committed to nonviolence,” he said — ignoring that fact that the Palestinian Authority rewards terrorists (“martyrs”) and their survivors with cash stipends and has its schools teach Jew-hatred. And Hamas, which rules Gaza and is now once again partnering with the PA’s
The military is overhauling its retirement system next year, and members should be prepared for the biggest structural changes since World War II. “[The reforms] came about over the last seven years or so, both to try to continue to retain outstanding people in the military while reducing the overall costs of military retirement for taxpayers,” retired Brig. Gen. Michael Meese, current COO of the American Armed Forces Mutual Aid Association (AAFMAA), told FOX Business. The new so-called “Blended Retirement System” (BRS) goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2018. Here’s what will change and how members can take
The climatistas and their toadies in the media can’t stop scratching their heads and asking/demanding why conservatives/Republicans refuse to credit “the science” about climate change. Maybe because of articles like the one in the New York Times today, which makes clear that the left sees climate change as an excuse for a massive political power grab: The Climate Crisis: It’s Capitalism, Stupid By Benjamin Y. Fong . . . The real culprit of the climate crisis is not any particular form of consumption, production or regulation but rather the very way in which we globally produce, which is for profit rather than for
The Trump administration has given nearly 60,000 Haitians with provisional legal residency in this country 18 months to leave, announcing Monday that it will not renew the Temporary Protected Status that has allowed them to remain here for more than seven years. The decision came after the Department of Homeland Security determined that the “extraordinary conditions” justifying their presence in the United States following a 2010 earthquake “no longer exist,” according to a senior administration official. “Since the 2010 earthquake, the number of displaced people in Haiti has decreased by 97 percent,” acting homeland security secretary Elaine Duke said in a statement.
Stephen King specializes in giving readers nightmares, but his latest bestselling novel, 11/22/63, draws its strength from a wistful, widely shared daydream.(Snip)To place Mr. Kennedy in the same pantheon as Lincoln and Roosevelt is absurd. Lincoln presided over the Civil War and freed the slaves, Roosevelt laid the foundations for the American welfare state and led a reluctant nation into the Second World War. Mr. Kennedy had no comparable achievements. Save for the assassin´s bullet that gave him a martyr´s halo, he was a mediocre president, distinguished mainly by his combination of eloquent rhetoric and often-reckless foreign policy.
Kathy Griffin is back with another unhinged rant, blaming Hollywood, Trump and Fox News for her complete career self-decapitation.Griffin saw both her comedic and television hosting career go into free fall after posing with a picture of President Trump’s severed head. Griffin was subsequently fired by CNN and had several gigs canceled in the toxic political fallout from the stunt.Now, Griffin is asking for sympathy for being poor from an austere hotel room in Europe in the middle of her world tour.In a raw video posted to her YouTube page, Griffin complains that Hollywood does not want her anymore and
A Washington Post columnist said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders humiliates the media on a daily basis. In a column published Tuesday, opinion writer Kathleen Parker referenced Sanders asking reporters earlier this week to say what they were thankful for before asking a question. "Yet again, she controlled the crowd, though this time by candy-coating her usual condescension with faux fellowship," Parker wrote. "I´m thankful I wasn´t in the room." She wrote that her first impulse when someone asks her to share is to "not-share." "For a press secretary to require professional journalists to essentially beg for their supper, surrendering their adversarial posture
UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were arrested in China for shoplifting while attending basketball tournament. UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero said the players stole from three stores in China including sunglasses stolen by LiAngelo Ball from a Louis Vitton store. They were facing 10 years in prison. President Trump asked President Xi Jinping for leniency. The three players were released. Thug life on display – After watching this bizarro interview with his father I can completely understand why LiAngelo Ball thought it would be perfectly okay to shoplift in China and live a life beyond
A new Raycom News Network Senate Election poll conducted by Strategy Research finds the race in a statistical tie nearly two weeks after allegations of sexual misconduct against Republican Roy Moore rocked the campaign. (Snip) When asked “what do you think about the allegations made against Roy Moore,” 45% believe all or some of the allegations; 34% do not believe the allegations; and 21% believe some or all of the allegations, but say it has not changed their vote. Among party lines, nearly half (48%) of Republican voters surveyed do not believe the allegations. Another 24% of Republicans say they believe some
A retired Alabama police officer said she was told to keep an eye on Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore back in the 1980s because he was known to harass teenage cheerleaders at local school ballgames. Ex-Gadsden cop Faye Gray told MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell that rumors of Moore’s liking young girls were heard on a daily basis and she was informed that he had been banned from Gadsden Mall because he allegedly targeted young female employees. “We were also told to watch him at the ballgames and make sure that he didn’t hang around the cheerleaders,” Faye said.
Alabama has its back up, or at least its Republicans and conservatives do, and it’s understandable. They don’t like when Northerners and liberals and people in Washington tell them who their senator should be. They don’t like when reporters from outside come down and ask questions and turn over rocks looking for what’s crawling on the underside. (Snip) The charges against Mr. Moore are not only serious; they are completely credible. If you read the original Washington Post story, you know it was rigorously reported, with great care and professionalism. Four women who did not seek out the press, who did
The NFL is considering an idea for next year to keep players inside their locker rooms during the playing of the National Anthem. "I think that if players are still kneeling at the end of the year, then it could very well happen," said one person familiar with the owners´ deliberations on anthem-related issues.Years ago, the players would come out on the field to warm up and then return to the locker room during the National Anthem. The league is thinking of going back to that policy. Washington Post: That person said it was "too early to tell" for certain
Donna Brazile said in an interview Tuesday that Russian hackers destroyed “critical data” when they breached the Democratic National Committee (DNC) ahead of the 2016 presidential election. Brazile, who served as interim DNC chair for a portion of last year, made the comments during an interview with Joe Madison on Sirius XM. (Snip) The DNC pushed back on Brazile´s comments, saying in a statement to The Hill, "Her allegation is inaccurate - there is no evidence the voter file was compromised." Brazile stepped in as chair of the DNC after Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) was forced to resign following
WASHINGTON – Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, said that all felons should have the right to vote. “I’m for allowing people who are incarcerated to have the right to vote. Why not? They’re citizens. No matter what they’ve done, and I’m not defending any of their conduct, but all of it wasn’t bad – but all I’m saying is expanding the vote and eliminating structural barriers is critical,” Conyers said at this month’s annual Legislative & Policy Conference organized by Al Sharpton’s National Action Network (NAN) on Capitol Hill. “It’s not an exaggeration to say
A second federal judge has halted the Trump administration’s proposed transgender military ban, finding that active-duty service members are “already suffering harmful consequences” because of the president’s policy. The ruling Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Marvin J. Garbis in a Maryland case comes just weeks after another judge in Washington blocked the administration’s proposal that would have stopped military recruitment of transgender men and women and possibly forced the dismissal of current service members, starting in March. The preliminary injunction issued by the judge in Baltimore on Tuesday goes further than the
The American political community has not taken adequate notice of Hillary Clinton’s book What Happened (the title is not posed as a question). It was generally panned when it came out a couple of months ago for blaming everyone but herself for her defeat. I have never been a Clinton-basher, and I was astonished by the venom, untruthfulness, and zealotry of her account. Mrs. Clinton writes persuasively of seeking “grace” after her defeat, and concluded most of her speeches throughout the 2016 campaign calling for “love and kindness,” yet she is unrelievedly ungracious. She describes her opponent as a clear
WASHINGTON -- Ennis Rep. Joe Barton is apologizing Wednesday for a sexually explicit photo now circulating online, but doesn´t plan to resign. In a statement released to The Dallas Morning News, the longtime Republican said the image -- which first surfaced on social media earlier this week -- was taken while separated from his former wife in recent years. "While separated from my second wife, prior to the divorce, I had sexual relationships with other mature adult women," Barton, who is twice-divorced, said in the statement. "Each was consensual. Those relationships have ended. I am sorry I did not use better
