As more details come out in Miramax co-founder and award-winning director Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment scandal, even the FBI has reportedly gotten involved.
The FBI is concerned that Weinstein will flee the U.S. to avoid prosecution, according to an exclusive report by the Daily Mail. With as many as 30 women claiming victimization, ranging from harassment to outright rape, Weinstein was reportedly planning to fly to Europe for “sex rehab.”
Harvey Weinstein is facing a mountain of allegations and the only ones he’s denying are the rape accusations. This man is vile, corrupt, and dangerous to society, and should be locked up before he can flee and avoid it. He has gotten away with sex crimes for decades — it’s time to end it. And his Hollywood and media friends that covered for him should be held accountable as well. (Read More…)
Former Fox News superstar Megyn Kelly is having difficulty transitioning to NBC; reports state that with Kelly in the Today Show’s 9 a.m. EST slot, ratings are down 32 percent from where they stood just one year ago.
What will this mean for her career? Kelly has struggled ever since her departure from Fox News — apparently, the qualities that brought her success as a hard-hitting political commentator aren’t so appealing in a fluffy, happy morning show. Viewers are dismissing her in droves with the press of a button and her failure is even affecting the ratings of the shows that follow her as well. NBC can’t be happy with their premium investment in her. Kelly’s days are numbered. (Read More…)
According to a pharmacist who serves many members of Congress, some members of the U.S. national legislature are taking drugs for Alzheimer’s disease.
If you weren’t worried about the future of the country before, now might be the time to start. Mike Kim, owner of Grubb’s Pharmacy, mentioned that some representatives receive treatments for conditions like diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease, “a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking, and behavior. It makes you kind of sit back and say, Wow, they’re making the highest laws of the land and they might not even remember what happened yesterday.”
These are men and women implementing regulations, raising taxes, and possibly declaring war while their mental faculties are diminishing daily? This is alarming. If our legislators know they have dementia and yet continue to serve in public office, they are being irresponsible and selfish. They should step down instead of clinging to the wealth, perks, and power of the office. (Read More…)
It was revealed on Tuesday that NBC executives declined a story would have that exposed the disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s predatory behavior earlier this year.
The list of Harvey Weinstein’s accomplices and enablers just keeps getting longer and so does the list of Hollywood celebrities and media companies that enabled him by covering for him or not reporting the information. Several liberal news organizations actively protected Democratic mega-donor Harvey Weinstein, and even after The New York Times exposé was released, some still hesitate.
Weinstein isn’t the only one at fault here. By failing to report his crimes, every television network and newspaper that silenced his victims is at fault, too. It’s disgusting and irresponsible and they must be held accountable. (Read More…)
Meryl Streep claims that even though she worked closely with the movie mogul and sexual predator Harvey Weinstein — some even called her his “go-to” actress — she didn’t know a thing about his unsavory activities. Moreover, Streep, who once called Weinstein a “god,” has been mostly silent since the news broke, other than a brief message from her publicist.
Even more disturbing? The actress stood behind another sexual predator in the past. She supported convicted child rapist and movie director Roman Polanski and even gave him a standing ovation at the Academy Awards, as the convicted pedophile received an Oscar for Best Director.
While Weinstein was making sexual favors a condition of employment and stardom, Streep was chanting high praise for his work on her films. She can claim ignorance about Weinstein’s behavior as long as she wants, but Streep’s long career in the movie business makes it hard to believe that she wasn’t aware of Weinstein’s nasty games — and she did nothing to stop it. She is as guilty as he is and needs to go away. (Read More…)
Michelle Obama praised disgraced Hollywood producer and accused rapist Harvey Weinstein as “a wonderful human being, a good friend, and just a powerhouse” in 2013. And nope, she hasn’t retracted that.
The Obamas couldn’t even be bothered to address the Weinstein scandal until five long days after the story broke, even as Hollywood A-listers were speaking out in droves. Michelle has, however, had plenty of time to browbeat women who voted for Trump. The Obamas finally stated they were “disgusted by the reports,” but the condemnation rings hollow — after all, Weinstein’s behavior was such an “open secret” it’s even been joked about on TV shows and in award speeches.
Perhaps she’s still unwilling to fully denounce her friend Weinstein; after all, he was a regular guest at the Obama White House, having visited at least 13 times between 2010 and 2014. And keep in mind, she sent her own daughter to intern at his company this summer. Oh, and don’t forget all those campaign donations.
The Obamas have befriended several other unlikely characters, such as Jay-Z, who admits he was a crack dealer, shot and injured his own brother, and stabbed a record producer in 1999 before ascending to stardom, and longtime Obama friend and fundraiser Tony Rezko, who did time for corruption. Let’s hope that Weinstein, like Rezko, will be held accountable for the many women he has hurt. He is disgusting. (Read More…)
