Actress Rose McGowan on Thursday appeared to publicly accuse Harvey Weinstein of raping her — tweeting that she repeatedly warned the head of Amazon Studios about what “HW” had done and “begged” the company not to work with the producer. “@jeffbezos I told the head of your studio that HW raped me. Over & over I said it. He said it hadn’t been proven. I said I was the proof,” she tweeted to Amazon boss Jeff Bezos. “I forcefully begged studio head to do the right thing. I was ignored. Deal was done. Amazon won a dirty Oscar.” McGowan has
Comments: So now Amazon is being dragged into this sordid mess. The culpability is far and wide for those who knew and accepted the perverse, criminal behavior of the vile Weinstein. You know this is just the tip of the iceberg. I sure hope Ms McGowan has good security. You know very well what the Democrats are capable of when you harm one of their own.
I don´t know much about Rose McGowan. I don´t think I have ever seen her act. The only thing I do remember is reading that she had an affair with a married man, Robert Rodriguez, the father of five children. He was also a movie producer/director type or something along those lines. I remember this because I was sad that he left his wife and 5 children for her. Karma is a "you know what."
I understand why the Hollywood crowd supported Hillary and Bill. They defended him and still do because they were doing the same thing. I still haven´t heard a word from Bill Clinton about these accusations. Wonder why? Hmmmmmm.
Did she report this alleged assault to the police? If not, why not? She was happy to pose next to sleazy Harvey at awards shows, smiling face and all. Wasn´t Rose also the same actress who attended the MTV awards almost nude a few years back?
I´m not diminishing the seriousness of assaults in general. You have to be reasonably cynical of this whole Hollywood system with its mutual exploitation.
MANY years ago, I was aware that my boss was sexually harassing a colleague. The boss was from corporate. A married woman, she had the hots for one of the male supervisors at the plant where I worked. He was very good-looking and married. He wanted no part of her. So he ignored her when she visited the plant.
Did I tell you she texted him pics of her private parts??
She threatened his job. I learned of it and had to do something. I had diarrhea for weeks, I was so nervous about losing my job. Ultimately the right prevailed and she was terminated.
It is hard to report this type stuff, believe it or not.
Isn´t this the tramp that showed up to the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards on the arm of Marilyn Manson—wearing nothing but a black thong? https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=527228290950590&set=p.527228290950590&type=3&theater
She should have gone to the police and had the appropriate evidence gathered. Apparently she did not. Now it´s ´she said - he said´, and it appears that neither one has much of a reputation to stand on.
Hollywood and Washington, D.C. may be on different coasts, but it always seemed unlikely that word of Harvey Weinstein´s sexual misconduct never penetrated the Democratic political circles in which he traveled for decades. Indeed, on Wednesday, one entertainment industry insider with close ties to the Clinton family confirmed she warned several powerful party operatives about the producer´s reputation. Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, whose friendship with the Clintons dates back to the 1980s, penned an insightful essay for The Hollywood Reporter in which she revealed having warned three "top-level Democratic operatives" not to let Weinstein host fundraisers. Though the bulk of Bloodworth-Thomason´s essay
The co-founders of the political research firm behind a salacious dossier alleging various Russian connections to President Trump´s campaign invoked their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination before the House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday. Fusion GPS co-founders Thomas Catan and Peter Fritsch were subpoenaed to appear before the committee in a closed-door session on Wednesday but asserted their right not to testify, a source close to the matter told Fox News. Fritsch and Catan took the Fifth on every question posed by committee members. Another co-founder, Glenn Simpson, is under subpoena for a later date. The move was expected. On Monday, Fusion GPS attorney Joshua
President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he could not support the bipartisan proposal to shore up Obamacare and stabilize the health insurance markets through 2019. “I am supportive of Lamar as a person & also of the process, but I can never support bailing out ins co’s who have made a fortune w/ O’Care,” the president tweeted Wednesday morning. (Snip) Trump said Tuesday evening at The Heritage Foundatation that he supports the efforts of Sens. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., and Patty Murray, D-Wash., to fix the problems with Obamacare, but he insists that lawmakers “find a solution to the Obamacare mess
Sstate legislator who was groped by a male lobbyist weeks after she was sworn into office. A legislative staffer-turned-lobbyist who for years would only wear pantsuits in order to project a “business-only” air. A government affairs director who faced inappropriate advances from an associate in full view of male colleagues who seemed oblivious as it happened. (Snip) More than 140 women — including legislators, Capitol staff, political consultants and lobbyists — signed a letter calling out the “pervasive” culture of sexual harassment and mistreatment that plagues their industry. The signatories include six of 26 women in the Legislature, two retired
A top Senate Republican is probing potential “conflicts of interest” for Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration regarding the 2010 approval of a controversial uranium deal with a Russian company, amid new details about donations from “interested parties” and an FBI corruption probe involving employees of the same Russian firm. “This committee has an obligation to get to the bottom of this issue,” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said Wednesday, at the start of a hearing with Attorney General Jeff Sessions. (Snip) “I hear your concerns and they will be reviewed,” Sessions said, without responding directly to a
Meghan McCain gave an interview on Tuesday where she responded to President Trump‘s warning towards her father after his speech against “spurious nationalism.” In a Good Morning America interview with George Stephanopoulos, McCain noted that Trump and her father clearly have different ideas about the best direction of the country. She went on to declare that she’s “exhausted” with the GOP’s infighting and the attacks against her dad after all the challenges he has already faced. “I don’t know if you guys have heard but my father is fighting glioblastoma right now and there’s nothing that could possibly happen or
Sen. John McCain exploded on Fox News’ Peter Doocy on Wednesday for asking him if he would oppose everything that President Trump asks him to do. Doocy asked Sen. McCain if his relationship with the president is “so frayed” that McCain would “not support anything that he comes to you and asks for?” McCain snapped, “Why would you say something that stupid? Why would you ask something that dumb?” “My job as a United States senator — you mean I am somehow going to behave in a way that I’m going to block everything because of some personal disagreement?” McCain said incredulously.
RUSH: John McCain has had it in for Donald Trump I don’t know for how long. I think McCain’s had it in for Trump even before Trump ran for president. (Snip) RUSH: Okay. Now, let’s parse this, because there are a lot of people — and you heard the applause — a lot of people who agree with McCain on this. “To fear the world we have organized…” This is fascinating to me. McCain clearly is a member of the establishment. He’s a proud member of the establishment. He’s probably on the committee that determines who gets in and who
The self-described “strategic intelligence” firm Fusion GPS that was behind the controversial anti-Trump dossier has a track record of intimidation and smear tactics, according to congressional testimony and the firsthand account of a London-based Venezuelan journalist who said he was labeled a “pedophile,” “extortionist” and “drug trafficker” after criticizing one of Fusion’s clients. “I believe that Fusion GPS’s business is to do basically whatever the paymasters tell them to do,” Alek Boyd, the Venezuelan journalist, told Fox News in his first American TV interview. “They are particularly good at spreading misinformation, disinformation and smears.” Boyd says he was targeted after
Actor and producer Rob Reiner on Tuesday equated allegations previously made against Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to those made against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. "Morning Joe" host Mika Brzezinski asked Reiner about Weinstein, and if the allegations of sexual assault and harassment against him were the norm when it comes to how the movie industry and Hollywood operates. "Here’s the thing," Reiner said. "Harvey Weinstein´s disgusting, let’s just say that. But Fox News had that, Clarence Thomas – I think what we’re doing now, is it’s lifted this thing and put it front and center in a big way."
Julian Assange is fuming at Hillary Clinton after she attacked him during her recent appearance on an Australian news show. In the exclusive interview with Four Corners, a long-running news/documentary program in Australia, Clinton alleged that Assange colluded with Russia to disrupt the 2016 U.S. election and torpedo her candidacy for president. Said Clinton in the softball interview that aired Monday: Assange has become a kind of nihilistic opportunist who does the bidding of a dictator. ... WikiLeaks is unfortunately now practically a fully owned subsidiary of Russian intelligence. This was too much for Assange, who has had it in
We´ve done it. We´ve found the worst response to the growing and increasingly awful Harvey Weinstein sex scandal. Behold: New York Times opinion columnist Michelle Goldberg, who wrote this week, "The movie business is corrupt, depraved and iniquitous — and still morally superior to the Republican Party under Trump." Impressive. She identified a bad thing, and then identified a second bad thing so as to mitigate the sins of the first. We didn´t think we´d see someone from the Times downplay the Hollywood scandal this soon, yet here we are. "Betraying the principle of gender equality is bad. Rejecting it
Hillary Clinton fell and broke her toe during her book tour in London as President Trump said he hoped she would run for president again in 2020.Clinton, who had to cancel several interviews on Monday, appeared on "The Graham Norton Show" with a protective walking boot on her right foot.“I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards,” she said.“I tried to get up and it really hurt. I’ve broken my toe,” Clinton continued, going on to say she received
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) blasted “half-baked, spurious nationalism” in the United States in an emotional speech Monday night after receiving the National Constitution Center’s Liberty Medal. “To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain ´the last best hope of earth´ for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of
Sure, it´s been more than 340 days since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton, but there´s still one very narrow, highly unlikely and entirely unprecedented way that Clinton could become president. And it has some Democratic die-hards dreaming again. Harvard University professor Lawrence Lessig offered a Clinton path to the presidency on Medium, putting forward a series of "if/then" scenarios that lead to House Speaker Paul Ryan handing the White House keys to Clinton. Here´s how constitutional law expert Lessig lays it out: If number 1: If Trump is definitively found to have colluded directly with Russia, he would be forced to resign or
Jane Fonda made it clear she is not proud of America. During a recent interview with the BBC, Fonda was asked, "Are you proud of America today?" The actress was very quick to reply with a hard "no." "But, I’m proud of the resistance," she elaborated. "I’m proud of the people who are turning out in unprecedented numbers and continue over and over and over again to protest what Trump is doing. I’m very proud of them, that core." During the same interview, the 79-year-old was asked if she had a "sense of regret" for her visit to North Vietnam in 1972. The
New York activist Tamika Mallory says she was booted from an American Airlines flight in Miami after a pilot inserted himself into a dispute over her seat assignment. 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. I was singled out, I was disrespected, and he was trying to intimidate me. I was
Former NFL quarter Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance against NFL owners because he believes they colluded to keep him out of a job due to his protests during the national anthem. Kaepernick first protested in the 2016 preseason when he took a knee during the national anthem. He claimed he protested against racial injustice across the country. The protests took off, with many players following his lead.Kaepernick hired criminal defense lawyer Mark Geragos, who has represented Michael Jordan and musician Chris Brown. CBS Sports reported this statement from Geragos: We can confirm that this morning we filed a grievance under the
Sen. John McCain warned against the US turning toward ´half-baked, spurious nationalism´ and jabbed at unnamed pushers of isolationist politics while at an event honoring the war hero´s contributions. (Snip) ´To abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems, is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history,´ he said.

Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough said President Donald Trump was the “antithesis” of the teachings of Jesus Christ. Scarborough said, “You look in Matthew, and go through the Beatitudes. Every single Beatitude. You go through Jesus’s teaching. What he says he wants people to be. Donald Trump is the antithesis of just about every single thing that Jesus Christ said on the Sermon on the Mount. Go read it.” He added, “None of us are perfect, but he goes out of his way it seems to thumb his nose at all conventions. Including the basics of
As National Football League owners and players’ union representatives meet in New York today and tomorrow to discuss the players’ recent demonstrations — the kneeling, linking arms or raising fists during the national anthem — they should know how the law views these protests. This will not only tell them what the league lawfully can do; it also will reveal something about American values. There has been some confusion about the law and the anthem protests. Because the First Amendment generally treats government and corporate power differently, allowing a business to impose on its workers what the government
Hillary Clinton was delayed arriving for the filming of the BBC´s Graham Norton Show due to a broken toe. The former US presidential candidate arrived for the recording of Norton´s BBC One show wearing a surgical boot. Mrs Clinton said: "I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards. "I tried to get up and it really hurt. I´ve broken my toe. I´ve received excellent care from your excellent health service." Mrs Clinton is said to be "very apologetic" after missing her slot on
The NFL meets every fall for a day and a half to discuss league business. This week, on Tuesday in New York, owners will gather and hear from players and NFL Players Association representatives on the contentious matter of players standing at attention for the national anthem. The league has said it will try to devise a plan that would build a bridge with players and assist on their social-justice causes so they’ll stand as one. Advertisers getting major guff from their customers don’t want to continue to take a hailstorm of criticism from those who don’t like anything but
A big get with Harvey Weinstein accuser Lauren Sivan wasn’t big enough to pull Megyn Kelly out of her ratings slump. Her “Megyn Kelly Today” viewership slipped from 0.77 ratings points on Monday to 0.54 ratings points on Tuesday of last week. “It’s a possible all-time low for ‘Today.’ It may even be lower than her [Fox] cable show. [NBC News president] Noah [Oppenheim] and [NBC News and MSNBC chairman] Andy [Lack] are in big trouble,” a source told us. Another source added, “That’s a big drop. They have to turn this around.” Kelly also appeared for the first time on MSNBC earlier this
