The dumpster fire that is the Harvey Weinstein scandal will continue to burn awhile longer, as victims and outraged industry members weigh in with statements of outrage over the sickening allegations of sexual harassment and rape. Yet, already the industry has turned to the discussion of the dire future prospects of The Weinstein Company, even after it gets a new name and Harvey Weinstein is scrubbed from the credits of films and TV projects.Late last week, the town seemed willing to hang in with the production company if Weinstein was fired, giving co-chairman Bob Weinstein and COO David Glasser the
If he looked like Tom Selleck it would not be an issue. He´s a fat, stubble-faced walrus. They will crucify him even though this has gone on since Chaplin and DeMille. He is a dying whale. Kids will poke his eyes out. I forecast 100 accusers. The last one will be Jennifer Lawrence. She will be like Scarface´s sister Poppy. She will go down with the ship.
Oh the Agencies, the paragon of virtue and they not the feeder system! Are they not the cutting room? You bet peels back this onion and see what we get! Voyeurism is my bet! Give me you life i’ll Give you fame!
By now everyone is likely aware of the Fake News story run by CNN on Friday surrounding an email received by Donald Trump Jr. The email was part of the investigative evidence shared with the House Intelligence committee; and later leaked from within that committee to CNN – thereby initiating the false reporting on the content. The central issue in the CNN story was the date of an email. It was leaked from within the committee, and later reported by CNN, that the date was “September 4th, 2016”; a date convenient for a collusion narrative between Trump Jr and WikiLeaks.
Facebook warned Breitbart News on Friday that the author of a completely factual story concerning the accuser of Alabama Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore needed to consult “additional reporting” from the liberal fact-checker Politifact. The story, published on Friday morning, detailed how Beverly Young Nelson, who accused Roy Moore of sexually assaulting her when she was a teenager, admitted to adding “notes” to part of her yearbook, which she claims Moore signed. This revelation came despite Nelson claiming at her initial press conference alongside her lawyer Gloria Allred, that the entire yearbook document was solely Moore’s handwriting. In a message
MCALLEN, Texas — A South Texas jury sentenced a former Catholic priest to life in prison for the murder of a local school teacher and former beauty queen in 1960 when he was assigned to a local church. For more than 55 years, the priest managed to avoid facing any consequences in connection with the murder. (Snip) During the trial, testimony pointed to a deal between the district attorney in 1960 and members of the Catholic Church. As part of the agreement, Feit was expected to plead guilty to the assault and authorities would not investigate him in connection with the murder.
(Video) Two horse trainers were seriously injured trying to save their own and others´ horses at a stable in Bonsall when a fire erupted Thursday morning. Horsemen Joe Herrick and Martine Bellocq suffered burns to their body while trying to rescue some of the hundreds of elite training horses stabled at San Luis Rey Downs in Bonsall. About 25 horses were killed in the blaze. Bellocq’s brother-in-law told NBC 7 she suffered second- and third-degree burns on over 50 percent of her body, while trying to save the six horses she had at San Luis Rey. She is in a medically induced coma and in critical condition.
Birmingham, ALABAMA — A handwriting expert prominently cited by the Washington Post on the matter of the yearbook presented as evidence by Roy Moore accuser Beverly Young Nelson raised new questions today in a Breitbart News interview about the inscription and signature at the center of national controversy. Specifically, the expert raised doubts about whether the initials “DA” at the end of Moore’s alleged signature evidenced stylistic differences when compared to the rest of the writing in the yearbook. The forensic document examiner, Mark Songer, a former FBI agent, also called for Nelson’s attorney,
It would be EXPLOSIVE if it turned out the October 2016 FISA warrant was gained by use of the Christopher Steele dossier. That’s a critical and key element to the sunlight upon the entire enterprise. If the counterintelligence FISA warrant was obtained through deception, misleading/manipulated information, or fraud; and that warrant is what led to the wiretapping and surveillance of candidate Donald Trump and General Flynn; and that warrant was authorized by FISA Court Judge Contreras –who was the judge in Flynn’s case, and is now recused– the entire tenuous FBI and DOJ operation begins to collapse.The back-story to the Link repaired by Staff
Deputy national security adviser Dina Powell, a driving force behind the Trump administration’s Middle East policy, plans to leave the White House as part of an anticipated wave of departures following President Trump’s first year in office, according to four senior administration officials. Unlike some top White House officials who were fired or resigned amid controversy this year, Powell is exiting on good terms with the president, the officials said. She and Trump have discussed her departure and are working on an arrangement for Powell to continue advising the administration on Middle East policy from outside the government, according to
Three weeks ago, in a partisan effort to dismiss what is now an admitted forgery, and what at the time was an obvious forgery, the left-wing Washington Post’s Philip Bump (already a proven liar) consulted former FBI agent Mark Songer, a forensics documents examiner, to examine a yearbook produced by one of Roy Moore’s accusers as evidence he assaulted her. The expert concluded that the “writing seems consistent with one writer.” The context of when Bump published this piece is important. If you recall, the Washington Post was the news outlet that first broke the story of the Moore allegations, and
A very stylish Ivanka Trump joined the rest of her family including her husband and children at the White House to celebrate an ´especially special´ Hanukkah one day after the president declared Jerusalem Israel´s capital and setting off criticism and clashes. The 36-year-old mother-of-three was all smiles alongside her husband, Jared Kushner, and children - Arabella, 6, Joseph, 4 and one-year-old Theodore, inside the East Room of the White House Thursday night where they joined her father and the first lady who hosted a Hanukkah reception. During the reception, Ivanka shared a video to her Instagram account showing Arabella and Joseph participating
A Texas judge denied a motion for a mistrial Wednesday from lawyers for the former priest accused of murdering a beauty queen in 1960, multiple outlets report. John Feit, 84, of Scottsdale, Arizona, is charged with first-degree murder in the beating, rape and suffocation of 25-year-old Irene Garza more than 57 years ago in one of the most highly publicized and sensational cases in Texas history. Feit, who was a 27-year-old visiting priest at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in McAllen, Texas, at the time of the killing, is accused of beating Garza, sexually assaulting her and suffocating her after allegedly putting her
(Video) Rep. Jim Jordan asks FBI director Christopher Wray whether Peter Strzok, the FBI agent who was fired by the Mueller investigation for sending "anti-Trump text messages," was involved with getting a warrant to spy on members of the Trump campaign. Jordan posits that Strzok was the agent who used the Steele dossier to obtain a warrant from a FISA court to spy on members of the Trump campaign. REP. JIM JORDAN: My hunch is it has something to do with the dossier Did Peter Strzok help produce and present the application to the FISA court to secure a warrant to spy on
(Video) Justice Neil Gorsuch finally told the truth about wedding cakes during a contentious argument about a Christian baker’s refusal to create a custom wedding cake for a gay couple planning their nuptials. Gorsuch admitted that wedding cakes just aren’t good. “In fact, I have yet to have a wedding cake that I would say tastes great,” he said, to laughter in the courtroom. (Snip) Gorsuch’s broader point was that some creation serves both utilitarian and speech interests. The primary purpose of cake is consumption, but it might also convey creative expression. This is true of other businesses involved in a wedding
One of the women who accused Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore of making advances on her when she was a teen and he a local prosecutor admitted Friday to forging part of the yearbook inscription she offered as proof. Beverly Young Nelson told ABC News she wrote part of the disputed note in her high school yearbook that she and famed attorney Gloria Allred presented as proof the then-30-something Moore sought an inappropriate relationship with her in the late 1970s. Nelson still insisted that Moore wrote most of the message and signed the inscription, but said she made “notes” to
Lindsey Vonn’s road to her final Olympics has encountered some trouble. The American skiing star was treated for a back injury after completing her World Cup Super-G race in St. Moritz, Switzerland on Saturday. Vonn went to the ground after crossing the finish line and observers said she was experiencing extreme pain. She was treated in a nearby house and later limped to a car without speaking to reporters.
MSNBC "Hardball" host Chris Matthews said Thursday night that "the worst you can say about Democrats is that they´re too pure" in light of recent resignation announcements made by Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) and Sen. John Conyers (D-Mich.) amid sexual harassment allegations. Franken, 66, on Thursday, announced his intention to resign from the Senate by defiantly stating that some of the eight accusations of sexual misconduct made against him were false while saying he remembered other encounters differently.
Al Franken’s resignation speech on Thursday seemed less heartfelt than grudging. He cast it not as an act of atonement — he continues to deny the charges largely and acknowledged through his stifled rage that his previous quasi-apologies had hastened his demise — but a reluctant act of gallantry. He was submitting docilely to the “broader conversation” on sexual harassment, he said, while signaling that his replacement, to whom he referred as “her,” would be a female pol embodying that conversation. The speech followed the usual pattern of lying pols: I didn’t do it, I’m only quitting because I am a
I´m pretty much done with the sex scandals. They were fun, but they´re just going to have to carry on without me. If someone broke the law and you can prove it, prosecute him. If someone violated the rules of his organization, eject him. Other than that, if women have forgotten the fine art of slapping a man in the face, there´s not a whole hell of a lot society can do for them. You keep silent for forty years and then ruin a man´s career with an unprovable allegation — and that makes you a hero? Not to me. Look,
Comedian Sarah Silverman addressed the topic of American nationalism during a monologue on her Hulu talk show Thursday night, describing the “visceral reaction” and fear she felt when an old boyfriend of hers hoisted an American flag on his own property. (Snip) “[My sister] was like, ‘Dude, nationalism is innately terrifying for Jews. Think about it: flags, marching, blind allegiance — these things tend to ring a bell for us,’” she said. “Right. Of course. Duh. It made sense. And it made me realize that the things that terrify some people are the same things that give other people great
Democratic Rep. John Lewis of Georgia is refusing to attend the Thursday opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights museum since President Donald Trump will be there. Lewis, who played a crucial role in ushering in civil rights for black Americans, will not be speaking at the opening because Trump’s presence is an insult to the men and women represented in the museum, Time reported. (Snip) The ceremony is planned for Saturday to celebrate the 200-year anniversary of Mississippi entering the union. Republican Gov. Phil Bryant extended an invitation to the president to attend, sparking a wave of outrage from various
Pope Francis has suggested he wants to make a change to The Lord´s Prayer, widely known among the faithful as the “Our Father.” Specifically, the Catholic leader said in an interview Wednesday he would prefer to adjust the phrase “lead us not into temptation,” saying that it too strongly suggested that God leads people to sin. “That is not a good translation,” the pope said, according to Reuters. The phrase “do not let us fall into temptation,” which the Catholic Church in France has previously decided to use, would be a more appropriate alternative, Francis said.
California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) says President Trump´s stance on climate change demonstrates that he does not appear to fear the "wrath of God" or have any regard for the "existential consequences" of his climate change policies. “I don’t think President Trump has a fear of the Lord, the fear of the wrath of God, which leads one to more humility ... this is such a reckless disregard for the truth and for the existential consequences that can be unleashed,” Brown said in an interview on CBS´s "60 Minutes," which is set to air on Sunday. Brown, who previously studied to become
In ever so lacy, delicate and pious tears-and-flapdoodle language, former President Obama basically suggested President Trump is Hitler. According to the Daily Mail: Barack Obama appeared to compare Donald Trump´s presidency to Hitler´s rise to power during a speech in Chicago on Tuesday. The former president was speaking at an event thrown by the Economic Club of Chicago at a Hilton hotel when he made the remarks. Without mentioning the current president, Obama told the gathered audience of 1,800: ´We have to tend to this garden of democracy or else things could fall apart quickly.
Opposition research must have started as soon as, if not before, Donald Trump announced he was running for president. I am sure many of Trump´s Republican opponents, as well as Hillary Clinton, the DNC, liberal interest groups, the media, and others were searching far and wide for trash on Trump. The research must not have produced enough trash, or else why would the DNC and Hillary have paid Fusion GPS so handsomely to create what is clearly a false document? Fusion GPS trafficked the document to the Justice Department and intelligence officials. They obviously had seen how many intelligence officials
Thomas B. Edsall, one of the pre-eminent commentators on American politics and elections, has written a piece for the New York Times, provocatively titled “Liberals Need To Take Their Fingers Out of Their Ears.” In it, he argues that the roots of President Trump’s success—and our increasingly bitter politics—should be laid at the feet (to continue with the body-part metaphors) of liberals. “Many Democrats,” he writes, “continue to have little understanding of their own role — often inadvertent, an unintended consequence of well-meaning behavior — in creating the conditions that make conservatives willing to support Trump and the party he
