Weinstein´s downfall must be traumatizing
for Hollywood hypocrites

National Post [CA], by Father Raymond J. de Souza

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 10/12/2017 8:55:40 AM

The cultural import of the Harvey Weinstein revelations is that now, after the scourge of sexual predation has been exposed in various sectors of society — clergy, business, military, hockey, football, politics — it has finally touched a sector deeply corrupt and most influential, that of celebrity entertainment. It’s not quite accurate to speak of the The New York Times reportage on Harvey Weinstein’s predatory sexual behaviour as “revealing.” Rather, it confirmed what the most influential people in the Hollywood-New York movie and publishing world knew for a long time. The recent reporting just let us ordinary people in on the

They are ALL pigs in Hollywood. It is a cesspool. The sainted Spielberg requires a "lewinsky" to work on his films.

Meryl made a fool of herself when she denied knowing anything. All of them knew but accepted it as business as usual. The movies they make are decadent to the core. They make fun of clean movies. Today´s movies are more like yesterday´s porn movies with violent sex acts the norm. Our children are being taught by Hollywood that hooking up and one night stands are how to act. Our teens are in enough trouble without Hollywood teaching them how to act. The Democrats are just as bad. They love Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy and Jack Kennedy knowing full well that they are and were predators. We have to clean up our culture before it´s too late. It may be.

Well in response to #4 -Hollywood moral poop did not happen yesterday. Speaking of "teaching our children that hook-ups are all right"-can´t tell you how many of my female friends think movies like Officer and a Gentlemen, and Dirty Dancing are romantic. The first one has our couple meeting in a bar and the next morning getting our of bed and THEN exchanging names. The second has a 35 year old man taking a naive 17 year old to bed. And never in the film does he say the cares about her. I think we lost the battle 40 years ago.

This Harvey Weinstein grot has totally displaced the Las Vegas shootup from the news, deflection by design. Good old news media tactic, Weinstein has become the cause du jour. As many are saying, Weinstein´s proclivities have been common knowledge for years, why is he suddenly impaled now and not sooner than this?

Cancel Weinstein´s passport while he is out of the country. He is a felonious criminal. Let him room with Roman Polanski.

It´s interesting that Harvey´s M.O. was similar to Bill Clinton´s with Paula Jones and Juanita Broaddrick (and others?). Get them alone in a hotel room and then pounce. I must say, though, Harvey makes Bill look like a piker.

Not to be insensitive here or absolve the abusers of their crimes... but I keep wondering why adults would follow these people up to their rooms or meet there without bringing someone else along?

Trump vs. Hitler: Let’s Run the Numbers.

I heard something unusual when I logged on to the New York Times this morning. It seemed to me a dire, authoritative, even apocalyptic sound. It was as if a gigantic clap of thunder had been produced by an immense boot of truth. Allow me to explain. On my screen appeared a think piece comparing Adolf Hitler with Donald Trump. “Trump Isn’t Hitler. But the Lying . . . ,” by op-ed columnist Charles Blow, advances a breathtaking claim that has never, to my knowledge, appeared in any media outlet before: That though Trump isn’t Hitler, he’s actually pretty close,

Donald Trump is criticized, often justly, for misstatements of facts and failure to understand the details of public policy. But in two of his most recent controversial actions, he has taken stands upholding the rule of law and undoing the lawless behavior of his most recent predecessor. The question now is whether the author of "The Art of the Deal" -- and congressional Republicans and Democrats -- can maneuver and compromise on these issues in ways that produce sensible public policy. The first action in question was Trump´s Sept. 5 announcement that he would withdraw Barack Obama´s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

At last check, 47 women have now said they were sexually harassed and/or assaulted by the producer Harvey Weinstein. That number is certain to grow. There’s no way a psychopath with a 30-year history of meeting with young women alone in hotel rooms clad only in a bathrobe only had 1.566 such assignations per annum. These astounding numbers do not suggest, as many now are, that Weinstein is a representative figure of American maleness in our time. It’s precisely the opposite: His is a story of demonic excess that is so horrifying because it is so exceptional. In that sense, it tracks

If GOP won´t unite on taxes,

Just as Republicans rallied around President Trump to save their Supreme Court majority and prevent a Hillary Clinton presidency, they must now rally around proposed tax reform to save their congressional majority and prevent a Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) Speakership. With nothing to run on following their health-care reform failures, Republicans trail Democrats by 9 percentage points in current 2018 election polling. The Senate’s likely passage this week of a federal budget, which would allow tax reform to proceed under budget reconciliation, indicates it’s time for the Republican Party to put aside differences to get the 51 Senate votes necessary for

The Democratic Party, as it did after Hubert Humphrey’s close loss in 1968, seems still to be misdiagnosing its 2016 defeat. Democrats see too little identity politics rather than too much as their trouble, and thus are redoubling on what has been slowly shrinking the party into coastal enclaves. Promoting Black Lives Matter and open borders, promising free tuition and tax hikes, opposing fracking and pipeline construction, pushing single-payer health care and an ever-expanding transgender agenda as well as abortion—these are not majority positions. Neither will embracing Hollywood, the media, or the NFL protests win over voters. Thinking (or hoping) that President

Dems Sue Trump for Abiding
by Obamacare on Subsidies

Beltway Democrats never tire of telling us that Obamacare is “the law of the land.” It appears, however, that their state level accomplices failed to get the news. One day after the White House announced that cost sharing reduction (CSR) payments to insurers would stop, Democrat attorneys general from 18 states and the District of Columbia filed a lawsuit for the purpose of forcing the Trump administration to pay the subsidies. A federal court has ruled these CSR payments unconstitutional, and the U.S. Attorney General has concluded that they violate the statute itself. Thus, Trump is merely upholding the law.

For Democrats, the warning shots are coming thick and fast. “More than half of Americans don’t think Donald Trump is fit to serve as president, yet he has a clear path to winning reelection,” Doug Sosnik, who served as President Bill Clinton’s political director, wrote in the Washington Post last week. “Are Democrats Headed for a McGovern Redux?” Alan Greenblatt asked in Politico on Oct. 9. On the same day, a New York Magazine headline declared: “No One Should Rule Out a Trump Re-election in 2020.” What can Democrats do?

Why Trump’s ‘Dreamers’ deal

New York Post, by Michael Goodwin    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 10/11/2017 9:02:49     Post Reply
A month ago, liberals were celebrating a sudden deal on “Dreamers” that President Trump made with congressional Democrats. Chuck Schumer, the senate minority leader, was downright giddy when a hot mic later caught him gloating that Trump “likes me.” Now the wedding is off, the bromance kaput, and a new deal will have to be made. Blame it on the wall. Trump’s bid for bipartisanship was the talk of Washington, especially after he confirmed the outlines himself, including the fact that funding for his signature wall on the border with Mexico would “come later.” But somewhere along the line, the man who

Viewers of Saturday Night Live noticed something missing this weekend. NBC´s late night sketch show sets out to skewer the cultural zeitgeist. And what showbiz story captured the cultural zeitgeist this week better than the tale of Harvey Weinstein, the Hollywood titan who has (finally) been accused in print of decades of sexual harassment?SNL´s executive producer Lorne Michaels explained that the show had not made any jokes at Weinstein´s expense this week because Weinstein´s influence is "a New York thing." Which is funny, because here in London my friends and I had logged online eagerly on Sunday morning to catch

Trump Drains Obamacare’s Regulatory Swamp
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 10/9/2017 5:52:03     Post Reply
Having provoked much progressive sputtering and head spinning last Friday by issuing new regulations weakening the notorious HHS contraception mandate, President Trump is poised to sign an executive order that will further dry up Obamacare’s regulatory morass. The Wall Street Journalreports that the order will expand enrollee options restricted by the Obama administration — allowing coverage to be purchased through association health plans, encouraging the sale of short-term medical insurance, and permitting pretax funds from health reimbursement accounts (HRAs) to be used for premiums on health plans. The impending order has already drawn satisfying charges of “sabotage” from Obamacare apologists.

A few notes on the killings in Las Vegas, the disgusting, evil, horrible murders in Las Vegas. First of all, I keep reading that somehow it’s unique in human history that men gather innocent human beings together, pen them up, and then slaughter them in large numbers. The tragic fact of human nature is that mass killings of totally innocent human beings are not at all unusual. Genghis Khan swept across Europe and Asia killing by the hundreds of thousands when it had to be done by hand and not by machines. His victims were as innocent as could be. In World War

Former President George W. Bush said Thursday that “bigotry seems emboldened” in the United States, warning that Americans need to reject “white supremacy.” The former president also criticized the “governing class,” but did not specifically mention President Trump, Congress or any other politicians in office. “Discontent deepened and sharpened partisan conflicts” in recent years, Bush said in remarks from New York City at a forum focused on security and sponsored by the George W. Bush Institute.

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

The Nets invited a Brooklyn native to sing the national anthem at their home opener and she took the opportunity to make a statement. 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."

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,

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

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

For fark’s sake. The guy’s accused of rape, by more than one woman. What sort of behavior does she think “invited” that? Even his somewhat less egregious offenses are inexplicable in terms of an invitation. Does anyone think Lauren Sivan put out the vibe upon meeting famous Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein that she was hoping to watch him furtively whack it into a potted plant in a dark corner of an empty restaurant kitchen? The more aggressive harassment is, the harder it is to explain in terms of a misconstrued female “invitation.” Actual assault is plainly indefensible, yet here’s Eddie
