Harvey Weinstein is not the nastiest
thing going on in Hollywood

American Thinker, by Earick Ward

Original Article

Posted By:ScarletPimpernel, 10/11/2017 10:26:59 AM

As more (and more) revelations come out about slimeball and (alleged) serial rapist Harvey Weinstein, there is a more sinister conspiracy still hidden in the Hollywood hills: pedophilia. It seems that, for a decade a more, courage was in short supply in Hollywood, as dozens (maybe hundreds) of people knew of Harvey´s predilections (for starlets) and did absolutely nothing. It has now been reported that as far back as 2004, the N.Y. Times was aware of at least some of the extent of Harvey Weinstein´s sexual abuse and, one suspects for political reasons, decided to spike a story that would

Comments:
As I commented after the article, I strongly suspect that this goes beyond pedophilia, and into sex trafficking. I believe this is just the beginning of what is going to be uncovered.

Been going on for decades. Watch the movie Gods and Monsters about James Whale of Frankenstein fame. Most sex then was homosexual. Famed director George Cukor was noted for his wild pool parties with young naked men. Kept quiet then as now

The Hollywood "elite" like to give moral lectures to the rest of us "despicable" folk while they rape, fondle, and abuse humanity. And what about their violent films and their effect on people?

Much like the NFL all these Hollywood starlets coming out now is WAY too little, WAY too late.

How many other actresses and actors were abused because of their years long silence? They are complicit in every abuse.

Many sick minds run and control Hollywood. Much of that shows up on the silver screen. But what goes on behind the scenes would not qualify for a rating.

These are the slime that dared to agree with Hillary when she called us Deplorables! They stand up at these award shows and trash Republicans, Conservatives, and Christians. They make fun of us at every turn while turning a blind eye to the sexual shenanigans in Hollywood. Their movies like Wolf of Wallstreet are decadent and about decadence. They glorify it and award it. They give money to the Clintons who support their lifestyles. Maybe the tables have started to turn and we will get our morals back before it is too late. God knew what he was doing when he backed Pres. Trump.

Weinstein screwed individual actresses who needed his help to get movie roles. Hollywood in general screws all of us through the heinous content of the movies they pump out, twisting history, inverting values, making the Devil a hero and heroes into devils, etc.

Nope; as inglorious as Weinstein was, he´s just the tip of the vibrator, I mean iceberg...

I worked for Xerox in Hollywood back in the late 60s. It was common knowledge that the only way one could get into the movies were to do so on the casting couch. I wasn´t part of the Hollywood set, just an observer.

In the fifty years since I worked in Hollywood, it went from decadent to slime to lower than sewer scum in the years after I moved on.

Now I understand why Hollywood characterizes every business man as a crook and every man a sexual harasser. It´s because in their environment it´s true. And apparently they have no idea that it´s not true everywhere else. (except maybe in congress)

If the Russians can think and respond fast enough, they can create all sorts of havoc into these matters by inserting misleading and outright false information in threads like the one under the article.

There is no doubt that the Weinstein revelations, so far, have not even scratched the surface of the sexual depravity that has existed in Hollywood since the beginning of the movie industry.

Weinstein himself has now left the country on a private jet, we are told bound for some yet unidentified location in Europe, where he thinks he can hide out until the smoke clears. Then pop up fraudulently claiming that he has been cured, and return to the USA to take up where he left off, as there is no way that sexual perverts can actually be cured.

Don´t be surprised if in a couple of years Hollywood does not make a movie about this incident and votes to hand that movie a number of Academy Awards.

Monumental McCain hypocrisy on Roy Moore

I am really sorry that John McCain suffers from a brain affliction, but he continues to play an active role in politics, and so I must call him out when he does something really outrageous. Yesterday, Sen. McCain called on Judge Roy Moore to "immediately step aside" after unproven allegations of sexual impropriety were published in a liberal newspaper. No waffling about "if true..." That is a standard Senator McCain did not apply to himself under similar circumstances. During his 2008 presidential bid, the New York Times published a story alleging sexual misconduct with a female lobbyist. McCain fought it.

Embattled film mogul Harvey Weinstein — a once-dominant force in the Academy Awards who rewrote the rules of Oscar campaigning — has been expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in response to mounting allegations of sexual harassment and assault against him. The film academy’s 54-member board of governors, which includes such industry luminaries as Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, Kathleen Kennedy and Whoopi Goldberg, voted in an emergency meeting on Saturday morning to remove Weinstein from the organization’s ranks in an unprecedented public rebuke of a prominent industry figure. The move marked the latest blow in Weinstein’s

TORONTO — Former hostage Joshua Boyle says the Haqqani network in Afghanistan killed his infant daughter and raped his American wife during the five years they were held in captivity. Boyle gave the statement shortly after landing in Canada late Friday with his wife, Caitlan Coleman, and three young children. The couple was rescued Wednesday, five years after they had been abducted by the Taliban-linked extremist network while in Afghanistan as part of a backpacking trip. Coleman was pregnant at the time and had four children in captivity. The birth of the fourth child had not been publicly known before

I’ve been highly suspicious of Emmanuel Macron, France’s youngish, posterboy president. First of all, he’s French. Second, his “beyondist” positioning between or above the existing French parties—rotten as they are—seems dubious. And while not abandoning these or other suspicions, his interview published today in the German magazine Der Spiegel makes for some very interesting reading. One comment in particular jumps out: I am a strong believer that modern political life must rediscover a sense for symbolism. We need to develop a kind of political heroism. I don’t mean that I want to play the hero. But we need to be amenable

To add extra punch to her insider’s account, Brazile is telling interviewers that Clinton’s 2016 campaign was “sterile” and a “cult,” and mocking it as sexless and joyless. She even writes that she considered trying to replace Clinton as the nominee over health concerns after the candidate collapsed at the 9/11 anniversary ceremony, a fact that demolishes the myth that suspicions about Clinton’s

“If these allegations are true,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Thursday, “he must step aside.” That was the typical Republican reaction to the accusation that Roy Moore, Alabama´s GOP nominee for the Senate, sexually accosted a 14-year-old girl when he was a local prosecutor decades ago. This is the most reasonable position. A child sex predator does not belong in the Senate and certainly does not deserve the support of the Republican Party. Second, there’s got to be some presumption of innocence. Whether the accusation is of sexual assault, public corruption, or anything else, an accusation is not proof

Roy Moore’s refusal to bow out of Alabama’s special election for a Senate seat is the latest demonstration of the diminished power of congressional leaders and other, once-powerful institutions in Washington. The Republican nominee, accused of sexual contact with a 14-year-old when he was a 32-year-old local prosecutor, brushed off calls for him to stand down as part of plot by establishment figures to “undermine this campaign” before the Dec. 12 ballot. Moore ignored the severing of financial ties by the National Republican Senatorial Committee for similar reasons.

Pope Francis is blasting “shortsighted human activity” for global warming and rising sea levels and is urging leaders at climate talks in Germany to take a global outlook as they negotiate ways to curb heat-trapping emissions. Francis met Saturday with a delegation of leaders from the Pacific islands and told them he shares their concerns about rising sea levels and increasingly intense storms that are threatening their small islands. He decried in particular the state of oceans, where overfishing and pollution by plastics are threatening fish stocks and sea life that are critical to Pacific livelihoods. He said several causes

In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Brennan also dodged a question about whether he has seen evidence that the Russian government has compromising material on Trump. The existence of Russian “kompromat” on Trump has been the subject of intense debate ever since the publication of the infamous Steele dossier earlier this year. “I think Mr. Trump is, for whatever reason, either intimidated by Mr. Putin, or afraid of what he could do or what might come out as

When the House passed a preliminary tax reform bill earlier this month the Republican Senate leadership moved quickly to slow the process. The effort has been led (again) by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The primary motivation for the delay isn’t coming from a desire for more time to further review the steps toward eventual tax reform passage but rather to muddy the waters and ultimately ensure it is as weak and ineffectual bill that will provide as little political momentum for President Trump. That is how deep the dislike for Mr. Trump goes among some of DC’s most powerful

Two years ago, as others in California were limiting cooperation with federal immigration agents, the Fresno County Sheriff’s Department welcomed them into its jail. Sheriff Margaret Mims gave U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement unrestricted access to databases and private rooms to interview inmates. She reorganized release times so agents could easily pick up people who had served their sentences. The policy sparked outrage among immigrant rights groups, who called it a pipeline from incarceration to immigrant detention, one that they said disproportionately and unfairly affects Latinos. “We are not anti-immigrant for

Washington - People with a history of “self-mutilation,” bipolar disorder, depression and drug and alcohol abuse can now seek waivers to join the Army under an unannounced policy enacted in August, according to documents obtained by USA TODAY. The decision to open Army recruiting to those with mental health conditions comes as the service faces the challenging goal of recruiting 80,000 new soldiers through September 2018. To meet last year´s goal of 69,000, the Army accepted more recruits who fared poorly on aptitude tests, increased the number of waivers granted for marijuana use and offered hundreds of millions
