A new report has found that Hollywood’s culture of bullying, abusive behavior, and employee mistreatment continues unabated despite high-profile scandals that have drawn widespread attention to the problem. Anita Hill’s Hollywood Commission reportedly released additional findings of its most recent survey on Friday, saying that assistants still bear the brunt of executive misbehavior, experiencing two to three times more bullying behavior than other types of workers. “Nowhere in Hollywood is the stark power differential more visible than between executives and their assistants. That dynamic drives higher levels of abuse among assistants across all kinds of entertainment work,” the study said, according to multiple reports.

The left has made every workplace toxic and unbearable. The left bullies, intimidates, and fires anyone that disagrees with them. The left ignores basic constitutional rights, beginning with the freedom of speech and going right on through the rest of the Bill of Rights. The left are communists following Alinsky rules and behaving like the Hitler and Stalin administrations, which is where they learned their tactics. It is not just Hollywood either. It is the government, all the public corporations, media, and educational systems. The rising dissatisfaction and rebellion is caused by this intimidation, and bullying by these actors. It is going to take firm resistance for this to stop. The majority of people do not support this bullying, and most do not support the left. We have a culture too, and it is the culture that founded and built this country, and it better be respected.

What kills me is that the Liberals in Hollywood treat people the way they accuse other of doing! They are/act like the dem leadership in DC. Do as I say, not as I do.

And Weinstein was a lone wolf? Of course not. Women flock to LA willing to do ANYTHING to be a star. And those in charge of the careers of would-be starlets mercilessly prey upon the willing. The Hollywood sign should add, 'Enter at your own risk'.

The whole concept of Hollywood today is offensive. The magic is long gone replaced by a carnival of the grotesque. Its not just a toxic workplace they have created but a toxic moral agenda which they feed to impressionable young people. Good riddance I say to the whole industry.

As usual, one does not need a survey to figure this out. Hollywood is a high pressure, high risk undertaking where one mistake can cost millions of dollars, one missed deadline can mean the difference between a huge success or a failure. The lower level people who serve as assistants or whatever are there because they want to be stars also, not just the bodies behind the scenes, so every wrong word, every misstep, every time they say "no" can make or break their lifetime wishes. In other words, it sucks to be on top and it sucks worse to be on the bottom. No wonder they are all miserable and disappointed.

Go watch ANITA HILL'S attempted ASSASSINATION of Justice Clarence Thomas at his Supreme Court confirmation hearings! These hearings -run by Bai-Den the Moron- were described -accurately- at the time by Justice Thomas as a "HIGH-TECH LYNCHING".

The old alliance between the Chamber of Commerce and the Republican Party has officially collapsed. Fractures started in 2020 when the Chamber endorsed 23 freshman Democrats for re-election despite their anti-business voting records. Now, the GOP is becoming openly hostile, most recently barring the Chamber’s representatives from hearings. Per The Washington Post, the leadership of the Chamber remains aggressively stubborn about their new strategy. Meanwhile, it remains to be seen exactly what that strategy hopes to accomplish. Tom Wilson, chief executive of the insurance giant Allstate and former chair of the U.S. Chamber board, said the Chamber makes no apologies for its decision.

President Biden highlighted on Monday that for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic swept the nation early last year, cases of COVID-19 "are down in all 50 states." But in a pitch to encourage unvaccinated Americans to get their shots, the president warned that "those who are not vaccinated will end up paying the price." And Biden, in remarks from the White House, also announced that the U.S. will share millions more doses of coronavirus vaccines with other countries around the world. The president highlighted that "deaths are down from COVID by 81%," which he said was "their lowest level since April of 2020." But he cautioned

Republican voters believe former President Donald Trump represents what the Republican party needs to follow on a wide range of issues, according to a recent CBS News/YouGov poll. For example, 89 percent believe in following Trump’s example on economic issues, and 80 percent say we need to follow Trump’s form of leadership. Looking deeper, 88 percent say Trump’s stance on immigration issues needs to be followed, and 73 percent of the respondents said the former president set an example on race issues. However, when it comes to the left and the media, 69 percent said Trump set the example on how to treat the left

What got into CNN this morning? We're accustomed to the network's unrelenting coverage of how the Republican Party is endangering America, but when it came to the current conflict between Israel and Hamas, the tone turned against President Biden. The media finds space to criticize Biden, when it's coming from the hard left. New Day painted a surprisingly negative picture of a feckless, golfing, Biden lacking the relationship with Bibi Netanyahu that President Trump enjoyed, and incapable of making any real impact on forcing the Israelis into a ceasefire.

The Supreme Court of the United States has chosen to hear the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which challenges a Mississippi state law that restricts abortions of fetuses after 15 weeks of gestation. The US Supreme Court will hear a case involving a Mississippi law banning most abortions after 15 weeks, potentially igniting a major challenge to the landmark abortion rights ruling in Roe v Wade. The nation’s high court will consider whether “all pre-viability prohibitions on abortion are unconstitutional.” My colleague Streiff digs deeper into the past ruling and potential implications here: Me?

A tax return from the governor’s office released Monday confirmed that Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo’s book deal was worth $5.12 million and is positioned to earn that sum in the next couple of years. Cuomo penned “American Crisis” during the early stages of the pandemic as a memoir retelling of his administration’s response to the COVID crisis. The governor reportedly secured $3.21 million in 2020 for the book. State officials said that its contract stipulates an additional $2 million to be paid out over the next two years, the New York Times reported. The governor’s communications director Rich Azzopardi said that Cuomo retained $1.53 million in 2020 after expenses and taxes.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Monday that President Biden is “committed to codifying” Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling that legalized abortion, after the Supreme Court agreed to hear a case that will allow the justices to reconsider the precedent set by the landmark Roe and Planned Parenthood v. Casey decisions. During a press briefing, Psaki declined to comment on the Supreme Court’s decision to hear the case, which involves a Mississippi law passed in 2018 that bans abortions after 15 weeks with limited exceptions. She claimed, however, that “over the last four years critical rights like the right to healthcare” and “the right to choose”

Rising prices are putting increasing pressure on President Biden and the Federal Reserve to prevent inflation from derailing the recovery from the coronavirus recession. A surge of consumer demand unleashed by government stimulus, improving vaccinations and fewer pandemic restrictions is putting a strain on global supply chains. Manufacturers and other hard-hit industries are struggling to get back up and running after a year of lockdown measures, causing supply shortages and raising costs. All of those factors combined to push the consumer price index (CPI) up 0.8 percent in April and 4.2 percent over the past 12 months, the fastest annual rate since 2008

I’m sure most readers have seen this stunning photo from Israel from a few nights back, showing a Hamas rocket attack that was likely attempting to overwhelm Israel’s “Iron Dome” missile defense system. The early reports on this photo didn’t make clear which was which; I assumed (correctly it turns out) that the missiles on the right are the Hamas rockets, and the unusual swirl pattern of the launches on the left are the Iron Dome interceptors. I have no technical expertise in the domain of missile defense, but the spatial pattern of the Iron Dome is probably explained as the complex

Raja has deleted the tweet, but Greg Price and Benny Johnson kept the receipts. CNN has yet to issue a formal statement on the matter. “The world today needs a Hitler,” Raja posted on Twitter Sunday afternoon.

Israeli warplanes unleashed another wave of heavy airstrikes on the Gaza Strip Monday, destroying about 60 miles of militant tunnels and the homes of nine Hamas commanders — and also killing a senior Islamic Jihad leader, the military said. IDF spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus told reporters Monday that it had assassinated Hussam Abu Harbeed, who commanded Islamic Jihad’s northern Gaza brigade and led attacks against Israeli soldiers and civilians for almost 15 years. In a statement, the IDF said Harbeed “was behind several anti-tank missile terror attacks against Israeli civilians.”

Florida might as well be known as the sixth borough.New data from the Sunshine State’s Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles offers the latest glimpse of just how many New Yorkers fled south during the COVID-19 pandemic. At least 33,565 New Yorkers exchanged their NY drivers licenses for Florida credentials between September 2020 and March 2021.That’s a 32% increase from the same period the prior year, when 25,370 New York driver’s licenses were traded for Florida ones.Florida officials said a major cause of migration was parents looking to get their kids back in full-time, in-person school.

Tucker Carlson, whose viewership is more than 4 times that of Don Lemon’s, likes to characterize the CNN host as stupid.
