Harvey Weinstein is broke and will likely die if he remains in prison, his lawyer said Friday at a hearing over whether the former powerhouse producer should be freed on bail pending an appeal of his Manhattan rape conviction. “[Weinstein’s] physical and mental condition has so deteriorated, I do not think it’s an overstatement to say that if he is not released as part of this application, his chances of surviving in prison are rather low,” one of his lawyers, Barry Kamins, told Judge Angela Mazzarelli during a virtual hearing in the Appellate Division First Department.

Looking at the headline... then, it's likely that he'll die out of prison (as will all of us) if he's released. What's the lawyer's point?

I've often asked myself the question, "why does it seem that only the good people die and the scoundrels seem to live on and on"...so no tears for this sewer dweller. When he goes, he should simply be put out in a dumpster with the rest of the prison trash.

Oh, so the dinosaur might become extinct. Happens to everybody. Harvey the Sex Machine should have done like Charlie Sheen and hired hookers, smoked a few rocks of crack, and show evidence of tiger blood. Last I heard, Sheen is still walking around free.

His brother was his business partner and both made millions. AFAIK the brother will keep Harvey comfortable. Also, if 'friends' will put up that much bail $$$ then Harvey is not broke. And do his lawyers work pro grata? For years?

Ah gheeze. He hasn't been in prison for five minutes. How about his victims ? How long did they suffer ? A lot of people die in prison for their crimes. No money with a $60 million sale of property ? I hope his victims take all of it.

One of the more cringe-inducing elements of opposition to Judge Amy Coney Barrett has been ostensibly smart and accomplished people embarrassing themselves with very stupid efforts to discredit originalism, her guiding judicial philosophy. A few typical entries, via twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and disgraced former news anchor Dan Rather. Clinton surely knows better. Rather? (Snip for tweets) Judge Barrett specifically said that a law has "the meaning that it had at the time people ratified it. That meaning doesn't change over time and it's not up to me to update it or infuse my policy views into it."
Pro-Trump Union Blasts Biden

A top official at one of Pennsylvania's most powerful labor groups slammed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for falsely boasting of the union's endorsement. Shawn Steffee, a trustee with Boilermakers Local 154, said that his members were shocked to hear the Democratic nominee claim their support on national television. While Biden claimed to have "sat down" with union leaders to have an in-depth discussion about his plans, Steffee said the Biden campaign never approached his membership. Biden's criticism to fracking led Local 154—the largest local chapter of boilermakers in the country—to endorse President Trump.

The sparse attendance and conspicuous lack of enthusiasm at Joe Biden’s rallies seems to have led old Joe’s handlers, despite his 10,000-point lead in the polls, to decide that another round of Islamopandering might be just the shot in the arm their campaign needs. After all, hard-Leftists such as Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Linda Sarsour are all Muslims, and all were firmly in the Bernie Sanders camp before the Democratic National Committee shivved their man yet again.

How Do We Know the
Hunter/Joe Biden Documents Are Real?

The New York Post’s series of exposes, based on a hard drive that Hunter Biden left with a repair shop and never reclaimed, have thrown a joker into the deck of the presidential election. Of course, the issue isn’t Hunter–a sad, drug-addled case–but rather the light that the documents shed on the corrupt career of Joe Biden. The Post’s documents show a level of corruption that is remarkable even by Swamp standards–for example, Joe Biden proposing to take equity in a Chinese company secretly, through a 10 percent stake held on his behalf by Hunter. But how do we know that they are genuine? First, because Biden hasn’t denied

It turns out Democrats aren’t as forgiving of elderly politicians as we might have thought. After several months of doing their best to ignore former Vice President Joe Biden’s declining abilities and his unending string of inexplicable gaffes, Democrats have had it with one particular senior citizen: Sen. Dianne Feinstein. In a story published by The New York Times the weekend before Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation hearings began, various sources within the party voiced no confidence in the California senator’s ability to lead Democrats’ efforts to stop the nomination.

ICE deportation officers fanned out across six sanctuary city regions in recent weeks, officials announced Friday, nabbed more than 170 illegal immigrants who’d been released by local police in defiance of deportation requests. Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad F.

They are hardened criminals,” Mr. Wolf said in a press conference from Philadelphia, one of the regions targeted.

BOSTON — U.S. Rep. Joe Kennedy III’s campaign improperly spent $1.5 million earmarked for the general election during the Massachusetts congressman’s failed bid to capture the Democratic nomination for a U.S. Senate seat, he said Friday. Kennedy said in a statement to The Boston Globe that he did not know about the improper spending before the Sept. 1 primary election, and has since reimbursed the campaign with his $1.5 million of his own money. He and his campaign self-reported the violation to the Federal Election Commission last week, he said. “After an internal review, I believe it was an honest mistake by those involved, resulting from misinformation,

Rudy Giuliani is all over the news these days, detailing the emails and documents on that MacBook Pro laptop purported to have belonged to Hunter Biden. According to Giuliani, only about 5% of the hard drive’s relevant content has been published. That 5% already paints Joe Biden as either the figurehead or director of a conspiracy to use his political positions to generate millions of dollars from dubious and even hostile foreign sources, with son Hunter as the prime conduit. The money goes to the Biden family. It’s an explosive charge. The Democratic Party’s presidential nominee could be the head of a syndicate trading on U.S. power as a product.

Today’s New York Post reports that an email on a found computer indicating Joe Biden met with Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma, while it employed his son. Whether or not you put a lot of faith in that particular email, the fact remains that Joe Biden does not believe that his son’s work on the board of Burisma, while he was directing the administration’s policies regarding Ukraine, represented a conflict of interest. In fact, the Democratic nominee contends Burisma was not trying to influence his decision making when it hired and employed Hunter. Joe Biden believes his son

The New York Post story alleging additional nefarious doings among the Biden family and Ukrainian entities put nearly as great an onus on the establishment media as it does on the Bidens. Yes, let’s stipulate that the involvement of President Trump’s political henchman Rudy Giuliani in the provenance of the Post’s story makes the anti-Biden report immediately suspect. Still, the simple reality is that there’s ample reason, both internal to the alleged emails in question and regarding other things we know about the Bidens’ practices, that make the story plausible. Because of that plausibility, every major media outlet in the country should now rush to follow up

In yet another glaring example that today’s Democrat Party is not the same Democrat Party of not all that long ago, Joe Biden pledged on Friday to sign the so-called “Equality Act” — a bill would that force public schools to allow biological boys who identify as transgender girls to compete in girls’ sports. Let’s just let that sink in for a moment. As the Daily Caller reported, the Equality Act passed the House with unanimous support from Democrats in May 2019 but didn’t come up for a vote in the Republican-controlled Senate.

Current polls show Democratic opponent Joe Biden leading Trump by more than five percentage points, according to a Real Clear Politics average. (Snip) Meanwhile, vice presidential hopeful Sen.

Arguably the biggest sensation to come out of the debacle of a town hall NBC had with President Trump was the so-called “nodding lady.” Positioned directly behind the President’s left shoulder for one of the most widely used camera angles, she was applauded by some and attacked by others for nodding her head and displaying thumbs up in agreement when the President answered many of the attack questions posed to him by Savannah Guthrie. But she wasn’t originally positioned there. Before the town hall began, a Caucasian lady was originally positioned there.
