Referencing Harvey Weinstein´s sex abuse scandal, a friend asked me if I thought this was going to end up being Hollywood´s version of the Roman Catholic Church sex abuse scandal. I immediately replied, "Nope. It´s going to be much worse." Hollywood is in full-on damage control as the privileged members of the leftist promised land feign shock and dismay at the accusations that Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed and raped women. As the number of accusations continues to grow, mixed signals about who knew what and who didn´t know what cloud the discussion. While I´m sure that some people in Hollywood were
Thank you for posting this. After days of reading these stories and all the rabid haters all over the net trying to drag us and President Trump into their dark hell, I needed some light. These people choose that life. I thank God for his mercy on showing me the way.
St. Paul wrote, “… the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God” and warns, “Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, not drunkards, not revilers, not swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9-11) Unrighteousness: “…habitual sins that imply a life choice incompatible with the holiness of God’s kingdom.”
My understanding is that ol´ Harv has had a bad reputation for decades. Why is there this sudden explosion of false outrage?
I read that Wine-Stein was talking about making a move based on Leon Uris´ book ´Mila-18´ about the Jewish uprising in Warsaw late in WWII. Maybe some Power-that-Be did not want a pro-Jewish, pro-Freedom movie to be made.
#8 and better movies from China Korea, etc... lot of the martial arts films like Black Scorpion, Red Cliff, which are epic in design story sets--can compete with anything Hollywood does. Hollywood has been stale for a long time. Right now one of my all time faves is Korean film Fighter in the Wind--
Re #6: Maybe the Man Upstairs didn´t want Harvey Weinstein himself to make a pro-Jewish, pro-freedom movie. Harvey is damaged goods; another producer will have to take his place. The movie of Leon Uris´s Exodus (starring half-Jewish Paul Newman) was good way back in the early ´60s; Mila-18 should also be good. The Left´s antipathy toward our Creator and His Word keeps me at a safe distance from them. If we´re correct in our beliefs, they are going to have a tough time in eternity without God.
WASHINGTON – Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) told PJM that President Trump should not sign a bill that provides legal status to certain undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as minors, commonly referred to as DREAMers. Trump has signaled a willingness to sign legislation to afford these immigrants some sort of legal status after rescinding President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy. Democrats argue Congress should pass a DREAM Act to offer young undocumented immigrants a pathway to legal residency or citizenship since their parents brought them into the country illegally through “no fault of their own.”
The bribery case against U.S. Senator Bob Menendez will proceed, and eventually be resolved by a jury, the trial judge ruled today. Judge William Walls rejected a motion by the defense to dismiss the charges against Menendez. A few days ago, it looked like the defense motion would succeed. Judge Walls initially indicated a willingness to accept Menendez’s position that the prosecution’s bribery case cannot withstand the Supreme Court’s decision in the case against former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell. However, the prosecution won the judge over through additional filings submitted over the weekend and/or the oral argument that occurred today. The legal
LARGO — Sheriff Bob Gualtieri fired a deputy Monday after an investigation found he offered to pay an 18-year-old woman he had recently arrested and her friend to come to his house while his young daughter was asleep in the home. Deputy Brian Britt, 45, was terminated after 17 years with the department. Gualtieri said his behavior was "a betrayal of his oath." "It just shows an absolute, 100 percent lack of character, lack of values, terrible decision-making," he said, "and to put your child in that type of a situation is just totally reprehensible." According to the investigation, Britt met the
The whole of Ireland will experience "violent" winds from weather phenomenon Ophelia, with each part of the country bearing the brunt of the storm for approximately three hours, a forecaster has warned. Met Éireann´s Gerry Murphy said Ophelia is "moving quickly" and each part of the country "will experience very strong winds for about three hours." The hurricane, which has been downgraded to an ex-tropical storm, is still considered life-threatening and not something Ireland has experienced before, forecasters informed the public. Residents in Cork are already in the midst of Ophelia, with up to 22,000 people in the south-west already without power
WASHINGTON – Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) said any member of Congress who refuses to figure out ways to reduce federal spending and move closer to a balanced budget is “betraying their country and betraying the future of our kids and grandkids.” The U.S. national debt recently surpassed $20 trillion. “Everyone who refuses to examine this issue and come up with constructive ways to cut federal government spending so we can balance our budget and minimize our risk of insolvency and bankruptcy, everyone who refuses to do that is betraying their country and betraying the future of our kids and grandkids
I´ve been banging on about this journalistic disgrace on Twitter (@dkahanerules) for months, and finally even the Times has had enough. "The New York Times announced on Friday an updated and expanded set of guidelines for our journalists’ use of social media." (Snip) There was a time, in the not-too-distant past, when the Times wouldn´t even allow its reporters on television, so as not to compromise their professional integrity. But since the beginning of the Trump administration, it has sat by and let its White House correspondents, Maggie Haberman and Glenn "Hack" Thrush, merrily voice their contempt for the president,
The good people at Quartz have put together this wonderful montage of Hollywood falling all over themselves to slobber over Harvey Weinstein at the Oscars over the years, though I do have to say that Holly Hunter’s curious remark about Weinstein’s “uncensored passion”—and the expression on her face—perhaps betray that she is among the people who knew, and perhaps is another of Weinstein’s victims. I doubt Hollywood can escape taking a major hit to its reputation from their tolerance for this man for so long. (And wouldn’t you like to be a fly on the wall of that Arizona rehab
Actress Emma Thompson says the Harvey Weinstein scandal is part of a "crisis in extreme masculinity." Not the way I see it. I think Hollywood is suffering from an excess of feminism and nowhere near enough masculinity. Just to be clear, the Weinstein phenomenon is not caused by any one thing. Unless I miss my guess, there will always be Harvey Weinsteins. Hollywood in particular is a town full of powerful men and attractive, insecure young women desperate to salve their insecurities by winning the love of millions onscreen. Put powerful men and pretty, insecure, desperate women together and you´ll get
The fresh complaints, from one alleged victim, relate to incidents in 2010, 2011 and 2015, in Westminster and Camden. It takes the total number of allegations being investigated by the Met to four, after Merseyside Police passed a complaint dating back to the late 1980s to Scotland Yard earlier in the week. The latest allegations came as more British women came forward to claim they were raped by Mr Weinstein. Hollyoaks actress Lysette Anthony has told police she was attacked by the movie mogul in her London home in the late 1980s. Ms Anthony claimed the “pathetic, revolting” attack left
I don’t think we have commented on President Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in protest of that outfit’s anti-Israel bias. My comment is: Great call. President Trump is following in the footsteps of President Reagan. He took the U.S. out of UNESCO in 1984 because it was too susceptible to Soviet influence and overly critical of Israel. There was also the matter of UNESCO’s legendary corruption. Under President George W. Bush, the U.S. rejoined in 2002, after UNESCO instituted some reforms. In 2011, we substantially cut funding to UNESCO after
THE ACREAGE, Fla. — Lenard Hughes has a small statue of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals, watching over his small menagerie in the home he shares with his wife Roseanne in The Acreage. It may have been St. Francis or some other divine intervention that saved Hughes´ tortoise, George, after the creature was run over by a small car not half a mile from Hughes´ home last month. Now, George is recovering — with the help of a high-profile veterinarian who has her own TV show, the South Florida Science Center and a 3-D printed prosthetic shell. Hughes
Our longtime colleague Ken Shepherd at the Washington Times reported the AP Stylebook team are re-jiggering their politically correct terminology again on the transgender issues. They call themselves "the journalist´s bible." They took to their @APStylebook Twitter page on Tuesday to offer an update. First, "Use transgender for people whose gender identity doesn’t match the sex or gender they were identified as having at birth." (Snip) Calling genital mutilation a "gender confirmation" is purely Orwellian language. Once again, AP is all about bowing to the "social identity" lobbyists. "Avoid references to being born a boy or girl" is basically telling reporters "avoid
Hillary Clinton was forced to make a series of embarrassing media cancellations today after falling and hurting her foot, MailOnline can reveal. The former First Lady failed to show up at BBC Woman’s Hour, ITV´s This Morning show and at the London Studios to record an interview with the BBC´s Graham Norton Show. Sources said her fall had followed her appearance at the South Bank Centre last night and the twice-defeated Presidential candidate had been exhausted after a lengthy book promotion tour. This Morning presenter Philip Schofield said on Snapchat: ´Supposed to be interviewing Hillary Clinton... but she´s fallen over
Ohio Gov. John Kasich refused to rule out a run for president in 2020 as a Republican primary challenger to President Trump. When asked by Chuck Todd — host of NBC´s "Meet The Press" — if he was going to run in 2020 against Trump, Kasich demurred. "I don´t know what I´m going to do tomorrow," he said. "I will tell you this — the other day, my wife said to me one morning, ´You know, John, I wish you were the president.´ That´s how I knew the country was in trouble." Kasich said earlier in the interview he´s concerned
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
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
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. (Photos/Tweet) Here’s a shot of the Jaguars stadium at kickoff: (Tweet) Photos of empty
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.
A worker at a Texas fast-food restaurant was fired after she refused to serve two police officers, the company said Saturday. In a lengthy post on the Denison Police Department´s Facebook page, Chief Jay Burch alleged the officers were cursed at by the employee and that the restaurant manager’s only response was “I don’t get into politics.” “If a business does not want police officers as customers, just let us know,” Burch wrote. “There’s no need to curse us and make a scene, just let us know you don’t want us there and we’ll go somewhere else.” He added, "Now going
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
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 NFL said Friday it has no plans to force players to stand during the national anthem, but will convene to discuss ways to end the controversial protests without imposing new rules... NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said that Goodell "has a plan that he is going to present to owners about how to use our platform to both raise awareness and make progress on issues of social justice and equality in this country,"
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
