Movie and television producer Harvey Weinstein will take an indefinite leave of absence from his company, the board of directors of The Weinstein Co. announced on Friday. According to a statement released by the directors, the next steps for the Hollywood mogul´s future with the company will depend on his therapeutic progress and the results of an internal investigation. The statement was signed by four of six remaining board members. The move comes after The New York Times reported Thursday that Weinstein has reached at least eight legal settlements with women over alleged harassment. Weinstein´s alleged inappropriate

In about a month, Weinstein may be back with his wife at his side, claiming to be "all better" after his re-hab in some opulent fabulously pricey resort like clinic. And all will be forgiven, for this major Democrat donor, bundler, and great pal of Obama and both Clintons.

How will taking time off help a lifetime of being a sexual predator? Only in Hollywood where they love Roman Polanski and other rapists and abusers.

In other words he is going to hide out, and let his PR people do their thing, until he thinks the smoke has cleared.

Attacking the NRA will be a good diversion to keep the liberal minds distracted.

What does a Leave Of Absence mean to a Board Member? They are elected by stock holders and not by the management or the rest of the board.

So won´t a LOA let him decide when he can return? Will his compensation change while he is on LOA.

Details. What exactly was taken from him? And what exactly did he ask of the Board?

(Video) - The heads of five conservative groups sent a letter to Senate Republican leaders calling on them to step down from their posts, saying they aren’t making progress on the GOP’s agenda and haven’t worked hard enough. Representatives of FreedomWorks, Senate Conservative Fund, Tea Party Patriots, For America and Media Research Center said Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and the four other leaders of the Senate GOP conference should step down. “2017 has been a disappointing year for the millions of Americans who fully expected, and had every right to expect real change in Washington,” wrote the leaders of the groups,

President Trump said Wednesday that he is taking “tougher” approach on North Korea than some of his advisers and is determined to solve the problem of Pyongyang’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs. “Perhaps I feel stronger and tougher on that subject than other people,” Mr. Trump told reporters in the Oval Office. “I listen to everybody, but ultimately my attitude is the one that matters.” As he prepares to travel to China and South Korea next month, Mr. Trump said he considers North Korea’s missile tests a problem for the entire world. “Ultimately I will do what’s right for the United States and really what’s right for the

Kellyanne Conway took to Twitter Tuesday to bash Hillary Clinton over her delayed response to sexual harassment allegations against Democrat mega-donor Harvey Weinstein. “It took Hillary abt (sic) 5 minutes to blame NRA for madman’s rampage, but 5 days to sorta-kinda blame Harvey Weinstein 4 his sexually assaults,” the counselor to the president tweeted.

The name speaks for itself: Unclaimed Baggage Center. This retail store in Scottsboro, Alabama, is the only place in the U.S. that buys and resells unclaimed luggage from the airline industry. If you´re like me, you might wonder how this could be possible. Who would ever let their luggage go unclaimed? Well, it turns out there are a lot more cases of this happening than you may realize. If you´ve ever lost your luggage, you can relate to the frustration. Brenda Cantrell, brand ambassador at Unclaimed Baggage Center, noted that "Most bags are returned within five days of the travel date,

(Video) - It seems like everyone in the country is weighing in on the national anthem debate, and that includes North Dakota farmer Gene Hanson. Hanson went viral this week for mowing a message into his bean crops: “We stand for the national anthem.” The message, which was in response to NFL players who refuse to stand for "The Star-Spangled Banner," has been widely praised. Even President Trump took to Facebook to salute Hanson for standing up for the anthem, flag and country. (Donald J.

The Boy Scouts of America announced Wednesday that girls will soon be allowed to become Cub Scouts and to earn the coveted rank of Eagle Scout, the organization’s highest honor. "We believe it is critical to evolve how our programs meet the needs of families interested in positive and lifelong experiences for their children," said Michael Surbaugh, chief executive of the Boy Scouts. The scouting board of directors voted unanimously to make the historic change in an organization that has been primarily for boys since its founding more than 100 years ago. Starting next year, young girls can join Cub Scout units, known as dens.

Washington - Hezbollah, an Islamist terrorist organization based in Lebanon, is perfecting its ability to strike at America within its homeland, a senior US counterintelligence official said on Tuesday. National Counterterrorism Center Director Nicholas Rasmussen told reporters at the State Department that Hezbollah´s "global attack infrastructure" included operational cells within the US. "While I´m not here to speak publicly about any specific, credible or imminent threat to the homeland, we in the intelligence community do in fact see continued activity on behalf of Hezbollah here inside the homeland," Rasmussen said.

Beirut - Iran’s moderate president gave a full-throated defense of his one-time rivals in the Revolutionary Guards on Wednesday, as the country’s pragmatist and hardline factions rallied together in the face of threats from Donald Trump. The U.S. president is expected to “decertify” Iran’s nuclear deal with global powers this week and add its Revolutionary Guards military force to Washington’s black list of terrorist groups under a strategy to increase pressure on Tehran. The threat of U.S. action has united the two main factions of Iran’s leadership, with the pragmatists led by President Hassan Rouhani who seek greater

Washington - D.C. Councilmember David Grosso is behind a bill that would decriminalize prostitution, arguing it’s in keeping with his advocacy for human rights and marginalized communities. (Snip) “The bill is quite simple, really,” argues Grosso. “It repeals a number of laws or parts of laws that criminalize adults for exchanging consensual sex for money or other things of value.” “By removing criminal penalties for those in the sex trade, we can bring people out of the shadows, help them lead safer and healthier lives, and more easily tackle the complaints we hear from communities about trash or other nuisances.”

It was a case of spies watching spies watching spies: Israeli intelligence officers looked on in real time as Russian government hackers searched computers around the world for the code names of American intelligence programs. What gave the Russian hacking, detected more than two years ago, such global reach was its improvised search tool — antivirus software made by a Russian company, Kaspersky Lab, that is used by 400 million people worldwide, including by officials at some two dozen American government agencies. The Israeli officials who had hacked into Kaspersky’s own network alerted the United States to the broad Russian

The U.S. Supreme Court dismissed a case against President Donald Trump’s controversial executive order restricting travel and immigration from several terror-prone states on Tuesday. The reason: the president issued a new version of the order last month that replaces the older version that had been the subject of litigation in the Fourth Circuit, rendering the case moot. Though many lower federal courts in liberal circuits ruled against the executive order, the Trump administration was set for victory in June, when the Supreme Court lifted an injunction against the enforcement of the so-called “travel ban,” leaving the case to be

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell sent a memo to all 32 NFL teams on Tuesday, sharing his belief ´that everyone should stand for the National Anthem,´ and adding that the league needs to ´move past´ the controversy surrounding player protests. According to the memo, which was obtained by ESPN´s Adam Schefter and posted on Facebook, Goodell feels the ongoing protests during the national anthem threaten to ´erode´ the ´unifying power´ of football. A large number of NFL players have been protesting police brutality against minorities since 2016 without any punishment from their respective teams or the league itself. In a conference

Hillary Clinton figuratively took a knee Monday night. The former presidential candidate pledged her support to the hundreds of NFL players who have protested during the national anthem this season while speaking at the University of California, Davis. "Let´s be clear, those players aren´t protesting the national anthem or the flag," Clinton said. "They´re protesting racism and injustice, and they have every right to do so!" The 2016 democratic nominee received a loud applause after her announcement. Clinton´s support of anthem protests is a sharp contrast to her counterpart Donald Trump´s stance on the matter. Trump has repeatedly criticized players who

Bill and Hillary Clinton are not speaking to each other after a blazing argument over her election book, it has been claimed. The former President threw a manuscript in the trash after Hillary ignored his advice not to publish it, according to author Ed Klein. Bill had red-penned the book in an attempt to improve it, a friend allegedly told Klein, but flew into a rage when Hillary refused to read any of his notes. According to Page Six, the friend said: ´He told her the book made her look bewildered, angry and confused, and that those were poor qualities

Hillary Clinton just issued a short statement about revelations on major campaign donor Harvey Weinstein: I was shocked and appalled by the revelation about Harvey Weinstein. The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated. Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior. This band-aid made no mention as to whether Clinton intends to return any of the campaign dollars doled out to her by the Hollywood mogul, whose career began to unravel on October 5 when the New York Times wrote a major article detailing decades of sexual assault

And despite the best efforts by some to wage war on truth, reason, and evidence we can not let that happen.” She continued, “When leaders deny things we can see with our own eyes like the size of a crowd of an inauguration it is just frustrating to us that pride ourselves on living in a fact-based universe, it is insidious and subversive to democracy.

Once the Obama Presidential Center is constructed, it will have a children’s play garden, sledding hill, green spaces for picnics and outdoor gatherings, basketball courts and even a recording studio, officials have said. But what the space won’t have is all of former President Barack Obama’s manuscripts, documents, letters and gifts he collected during his time in office. While the Presidential Center is about four years from opening, a conversation has begun about what the facility will mean to scholars and to local research universities without those items. Traditionally, Presidential Libraries are places where historians, academics and college students travel to dig

Scientists are warning we need “carbon-sucking” technologies by 2030 in order to prevent global temperature increases. In the fight to curtail global warming, scientists say geoengineering — large-scale manipulation of carbon dioxide and solar radiation to lessen their effect on the planet — is absolutely necessary. (Snip) It’s not just forests that are necessary. Machines are also capable of carbon sucking as seen by one carbon capture machine in Zurich, Switzerland, created by Climeworks. The machine sucks the gas from the air and can store it underground or provide it to be sold to greenhouses who use the CO2 to

Harvey Weinstein reportedly chased down a random driver to see if he could get a ride in their car after arguing with his daughter on Wednesday. TMZ reports that the disgraced movie mogul was heard screaming out just before he tried to flag down the vehicle: ´You´re making it worse.´ Weinstein was at the Los Angeles home of his daughter, who was eventually able to persuade her father back inside the house.

It’s not just the government that’s pushing electric cars. The media is equally complicit. Both are engaged in what has to be described as nothing less than a concerted propaganda onslaught to convince the public that the naked emperor is indeed wearing a suit of the finest materials available. But the question — why? — remains mysterious. What is so important — to them — about electric cars? Why the urgency to create the impression of inevitability? The media, in particular, seems to be obsessed with this — even to the point of exaggerating the confected enthusiasm for electric cars

"Michelle and I have been disgusted by the recent reports about Harvey Weinstein," Mr. Obama said in the statement. "Any man who demeans and degrades women in such fashion needs to be condemned and held accountable, regardless of wealth or status.
