Surprise! Southern Cal Abandons
Harvey Weinstein’s $5 Million
Gift For Women Filmmakers

Daily Caller, by Eric Owens

The University of Southern California has rejected a $5 million donation from Harvey Weinstein in response to allegations that Weinstein sexually abused scores of women for decades. The Hollywood movie producer’s generous $5 million donation would have funded — wait for it — an endowment for women filmmakers at the USC School of Cinematic Arts. Southern Cal administrators decided to refuse the gift after a USC student, Tiana Lowe, launched a Change.org petition urging the school “to finally muster the moral spine to refuse Harvey Weinstein’s blood money in exchange for its soul.” “Harvey Weinstein, the Hollywood kingmaker and production pioneer, is not

His donation was the same as the Democrats wanting amnesty for illegals, it was a recruitment of future talent for Harvey the scum of the earth. And to think, they called us "deplorable"!

There was a president of Yale University who went on to be Major League Baseball commissioner. His name may have been Giamatti.
When students and faculty complained about dirty money contributed to Yale by organized crime figures, he was succinct in his answer.
"Once the money is deposited into a Yale account, it is no longer dirty."

Southern Cal is being stupid.

This Tiana Lowe sounds like a conservative and is way too good looking for a lib.

I don’t want a Hecuba statue. I don’t want a consent carnival. I don’t want a Title IX t-shirt. I don’t want a single other pathetic display of virtue signaling while I have to watch the Trojan women walk past wife-beater and murderer OJ Simpson’s jersey in the Coliseum.

The flimsiness of Obama´s ´legacy´

President Trump is busy doing the job the voters asked for him to do, but this isn´t stopping the mainstream press and other establishment cognoscenti from whining about "the Obama legacy" and the dreadful loss these actions by President Trmp this supposedly represent. According to Agence France-Presse: Brick by brick, the demolition job has begun: since taking office less than a year ago, Donald Trump has launched an all-out assault on the legacy of Barack Obama. Climate, free trade, health care, immigration, foreign policy -- the 45th US president has set about undoing just about everything done by the 44th. All new presidents, of

Andre Blakely was running back down the stairs after banging on doors around 3:30 a.m. Monday morning when he heard a voice coming from room 300: "Can someone help me?" Blakely, a maintenance worker at Varenna Oakmont Senior Living, an upscale retirement community in Santa Rosa, California, said he had spent the last hour frantically alerting dozens of elderly residents that they needed to head to the lobby as smoke from the deadliest wildfires in the state´s history reached their buildings.

Napa, CA - A brother and sister who helped rescue 70 elderly residents from a senior living center want to know where the facilities´ employees were as the fire spread. Flames devoured the Varenna Oakmont Senior Living Community on Fountaingrove Parkway in Santa Rosa. Around 3:30 Monday morning, RJ Kisling went to check on his grandfather, a resident in Varenna´s Main Building. "When I walked in and I saw those people and the looks on their faces I knew that I needed to be the answer," said Kisling. He said there were two women in the lobby, who he assumed were employees.

I drove as far as I could on Sweetland Road, a private dirt lane up a mountain in Redwood Valley northeast of Ukiah. When I came upon two incinerated vehicles — Jon and Sara Shepherd’s cars — I got out and walked the rest of the way to the smoldering remains of the home the Shepherds built two years ago a mile and a half from the main road in this sparsely populated part of Mendocino County. After all the catastrophic fire scenes this last week in Northern California — the scorched neighborhoods, the blackened fields, the desperate evacuees — I was

OTTAWA — Joshua Boyle called himself a “pilgrim” who was “engaged in helping” in Afghanistan. A man who crossed into Afghanistan with him described him as an adventurer. Mr. Boyle, 34, who is from Breslau, Ontario, and his American wife, Caitlan Coleman, 31, were freed along with their three children on Wednesday after five years as hostages of the Haqqani network in Afghanistan, which seized them in October 2012, while they were hiking. They arrived in Toronto on Friday evening. Emerging from a room at the Toronto airport — where the children, all born in captivity, met their Canadian grandparents for the

NEW YORK - Deadly wildfires in Northern California are burning up marijuana farms in the so-called Emerald Triangle. Blazes have destroyed a number of farms in Mendocino County right before legal recreational sales begin in California. Cannabis business owners who lose their crops have little reprieve. "Nobody right now has insurance," said Nikki Lastreto, secretary of the Mendocino Cannabis Industry Association. "They might have insurance on their house, but not on their crop." Cannabis cultivators cannot insure their businesses because federal law prohibits marijuana, which means that financial institutions can´t go near it. Derek Peterson, CEO of Terre Tech, which

I can´t claim firsthand experience of the wildfires, other than breathing the very unhealthy air, full of particulate matter, the smoke so thick at times that everything gets fuzzy five hundred feet away. Schools are closed, and people are advised to stay indoors. Many people wear filters or surgical masks when outdoors. During sunlight hours, the light is weird. A lot of colors look like faded 1950s Anscochrome home movies – too much yellow, lending an off-putting, unhealthy pallor to the world. But I have a intense secondhand experience: a winery I helped start twenty years ago (and remain a partner

Well, well, well. What have we here? Fresh off the news that Oliver Stone was one of the few Hollywood figures to defend studio mogul Harvey Weinstein from sex harassment allegations, an actress has come forward to state that Stone groped her, too. From the Hollywood Reporter: Carrie Stevens, an actress and former Playboy model, alleges that the Oscar-winning director openly grabbed her breast and grinned during a party at media mogul Ted Field´s house. Takes one to know one, Ol? It kind of puts a different light on the dictator-loving Oliver Stone´s immediate defense of Weinstein, a man who is always indicting America

Hillary Clinton slammed what she called "endemic" sexism and misogyny in America during an interview with Fareed Zakaria, which aired Sunday. Clinton, who was interviewed by Zakaria on his show, "GPS," said sexism was so inherent that she purposely hadn´t highlighted her career history of fighting for women´s rights when she ran for president in 2016. However, she admitted that with the benefit of hindsight, she "could have tried harder" to do so. "I´m a middle-class girl from the middle of the country, and so I always struggled with like, OK, so what´s my story. And it suddenly dawned on me that

Hillary Clinton on Sunday defended NFL players who knelt during the national anthem, saying kneeling is a “reverent” position that is not against “our anthem or our flag.” The former Democratic presidential candidate, who was at the Southbank Centre´s London Literature Festival, urged Democrats to use the issue against President Trump. Clinton was embarking on a foreign trip to promote her book “What Happened.” She said people should resist “what are very clear dog-whistles” to the Trump base, pointing to the example of kneeling NFL players. “That´s what black athletes kneeling was all about,” she said in response to a question about ways to

If the NFL thought Americans would ease the backlash against the league — they were sadly mistaken. Photos of empty stadiums from around the league show how dire a situation kneelers have spurred. (Photo) Breitbart News reports: Note, that the Jets played New England on Sunday, meaning there should have been a big crowd for that game. The Texans, Atlanta, and Baltimore are also very relevant teams with relatively loyal fan bases. Yet, thousands upon thousands of fans no-showed or didn’t buy tickets for those games.

Mallory, a co-chair of the Women’s March on Washington, was traveling home to New York when the pilot followed her to scold her over an argument she had with a gate agent. He then had her summoned from her seat and kicked off the flight, she told the Daily News. “It definitely was white male aggression.

Jimmy Kimmel says he’s laid off the Harvey Weinstein jokes because he’s not the “moral conscience of America” (there’s also a video of him asking young women to guess what’s in his crotch. And suggesting they feel it and put their mouths on it).Famously, NBC is playing shy about the scandal, having refused to broadcast the detailed exposé by Ronan Farrow, who took it to the New Yorker which did publish it. The story has laid bare the hypocrisy of the media giants, Democratic biggies, and the Hollywood virtue signalers.

Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance under the collective bargaining agreement for collusion against NFL team owners, reports Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report. Kaepernick has hired high-profile attorney Mark Geragos and is preparing to release a statement about his grievance soon, added Freeman. The free-agent quarterback has remained unemployed since his release by the San Francisco 49ers in March and has garnered little interest from teams around the league. This has caused some to suggest he´s being blackballed for his national anthem protests during the 2016 season. Kaepernick appeared in 12 games for 49ers in 2016, throwing for 2,241 yards with

The Clinton Foundation told DailyMail.com it will not return as much as $250,000 in donations from Harvey Weinstein, saying on Sunday the money had already been spent on the organization’s programs and used for charitable purposes. The foundation’s decision comes as politicians and philanthropic groups grapple with whether to return donations they have received from Weinstein, after numerous women stepped forward this month to accuse the movie mogul of sexual assault, harassment and rape. Over a dozen Democratic politicians have said they will give back or donate Weinstein’s campaign contributions to charity. The Clinton Foundation faced questions about Weinstein’s funding after Hillary Clinton
