  • Maybe Adam Schiff should investigate his donors before he goes after Trump

    The Democrats, who won power in the House based on record campaign spending, sure have a lot of creepy big-dollar donors. There's Harvey Weinstein, who demanded sex and massages from the starlets in exchange for movie roles, and then sicced the private detectives on anyone who wanted to talk. There's Jeffrey Epstein, who recruited little girls to sex-slave rings on his private island, reached through private jet travels to the Dominican Republic. You wonder why President Bill Clinton would get in the plane with this sort of person. Now there's Ed Buck, reportedly a pervert with a 'thing' for getting young black male prostitutes...
  • Pedophilia hiding in plain sight (Movie: The Butterfly Effect, 2004) [vanity]

    I just watched The Butterfly Effect (2004) for the 2nd time, the last being over 12 years ago. Even though Kutcher's on my list of not watching, I couldn't recall some aspects of the movie and opted to watch it again (Netflix); I'm part glad I did, but not for obvious reasons (title gives it away). The first time I thought the displacement concept coupled with paradox was interesting; but I also thought the movie to be bizarre. Now I know why: [spoiler alert] If you've ever watched this movie and didn't pick up on the pedophelia from the perverted...

    After complaints from various activist groups, the song "Vanilla Ice Cream" has been banned from Broadway. She song, which is featured in the Tony Award winning musical, "She Loves Me" has been deemed racist by the ruling committee. When asked about the decision, one Broadway official said, "in today's political climate, we can no longer include a song with such an overt racist message as Vanilla Ice Cream. The song is nothing but pure hate speech." Another Broadway executive added, "We are no longer a nation of vanilla. We are also chocolate, strawberry, and so many other flavors. Vanilla ice...

    Four years ago, the actor Alec Baldwin temporarily deleted his Twitter account after unleashing a homophobic rant against a Daily Mail writer, referring to him as a “toxic little queen.” ....Today, Baldwin has vowed once again to take a break from Twitter after a strange meltdown. It all began yesterday, when the 30 Rock actor sat down for an interview with PBS Newshour to discuss the mounting sexual assault allegations against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and Baldwin’s good pal, James Toback. ...McGowan tweeted out a link to the video interview with the message, “Told you everyone knew.

    Finally, the men of Hollywood are speaking about the Harvey Weinstein scandal. Perhaps they should reconsider. George Clooney, who smugly comports himself as Hollywood’s moral authority, appeared on “Today” to voice his outrage. Keeping to his earlier, flimsy assertion that he knew next to nothing, Clooney then cast blame upon rumors of actress friends Weinstein bragged about bedding (“I didn’t really necessarily believe that, because to believe that would [be to] believe some bad things about actresses that I know and like, and I didn’t really buy into that”); the staffers who escorted actresses to meet with Weinstein; those who...

    Last year NBC News was scooped on one of the biggest stories of the year -- Donald Trump talking about groping women on NBC's "Access Hollywood" tape. The Washington Post published it first. Now NBC is under scrutiny for another missed opportunity. Reporter and NBC contributor Ronan Farrow pursued leads about Harvey Weinstein's misconduct for months, but NBC passed on the chance to publish his story.

    RUSH: Of course the Harvey Weinstein situation — folks, this is big. It’s not just about a Hollywood mogul and his misbehavior. As is always the case, it’s a teachable moment and it is filled with life lessons for people about liberalism. And I’m gonna tell you where all of this really began. It all began in 1969 at Chappaquiddick, when Ted Kennedy was allowed to get away with manslaughter at all costs. Now, in 1969 modern era feminism was just being unrolled, and at the time this happened it really wasn’t established yet. It had some high school girls...

    Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels has seemingly admitted the show chose not to roast Harvey Weinstein because the embattled film heavyweight is from New York. When Michaels was asked as he was leaving SNL's after-party at 4am why the show avoided the Weinstein controversy, the producer smiled and responded: 'It's a New York thing.' The show had earlier been criticized for not mentioning the sexual harassment allegations leveled against Weinstein this week.

    Harvey Weinstein boasted that he had sex with Jennifer Lawrence, according to new court documents obtained by RadarOnline.com. In the papers filed by Jane Doe in Los Angeles she alleges Weinstein bragged about bedding the 28-year-old Oscar winner. The woman claims Weinstein, 66, acted inappropriately when they met in New York to talk about a film called Vampire Academy. After their dinner meeting the pair went to his office where she claims he kneeled in front of her and performed oral sex. When she started crying Weinstein responded: "I slept with Jennifer Lawrence and look where she is; she has...

    The Harvey Weinstein scandal has a lot of moving parts headed towards an important hearing next week that will set the next stage in the criminal proceeding. On one end, Weinstein has been pushing a Delaware bankruptcy court to allow him to recover files maintained by The Weinstein Co. and then permit him to use those emails and other documents to defend himself from sexual assault charges in New York. On the other end, there's still pending civil lawsuits including one class action from his many accusers. On Thursday, those women sounded the alarm about Weinstein's efforts. "He should not...

    As a native Illinoisan, I can appreciate the wildly corrupt nature of this story. New York Governor Mario Cuomo received a $25,000 donation from the law firm representing Harvey Weinstein just six days before he called off an investigation into the movie mogul's behavior. The explanation from the law firm for the donation could have been lifted from a Chicago alderman's playbook. Page Six: “Neither Mr. Boies, nor anyone from his firm, ever discussed Harvey Weinstein or Mr. Vance with Mr. Cuomo, or anyone from his office, at any time,” the spokesperson told online political publication Capital and Main. “Mr....

    *snip* The Washington Examiner‘s Philip Wegmann labeled Winfrey a "gold mine of opposition research," pointing to stories such as the time advice given on her show led a woman to decide against receiving cancer treatment due to a belief she could be healed through "positive thinking." The Washington Post similarly published an article titled, "Oprah might run for president. We did the opposition research for you." It pointed out issues such as her close friendship with Harvey Weinstein, many years of child sex abuse at a school Winfrey founded in South Africa, and her comments that old people "have to...

    Pete Davidson is in hot water for some comments he made on “Saturday Night Live” about Dan Crenshaw, a Texas Republican running for Congress who lost an eye while serving in the U.S. military. On Saturday’s episode of the sketch series, Davidson appeared on the “Weekend Update” segment, the 24-year-old comedian gave his “first impressions” of some candidates ahead of Tuesday’s midterm elections. He giggled as an image of former Navy SEAL Crenshaw, who wears an eye-patch on his right eye after being injured by an I.E.D. in Afghanistan, flashed across the screen. “You may be surprised to hear he’s...

    Crenshaw responded to Davidson's comments on Twitter Sunday morning. "Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended. That being said, I hope @nbcsnl recognizes that vets don’t deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes," he wrote. Davidson's segment, which he introduced as a look at "gross" candidates during this election, focused primarily on Republicans.

    Further proving the late-night comedy show is garbage entertainment for garbage people, Saturday Night Live "comedian" Pete Davidson sparked controversy after he made an ugly joke targeting GOP congressional candidate and former Navy SEAL Dan Crenshaw. The punchline? Crenshaw wears an eye-patch due to losing his right eye during an IED blast while serving in Afghanistan. That's funny stuff, apparently, to the liberals writing the jokes for SNL. Davidson was participating in a segment called  "The Weekly Rundown" where SNL participants give what is supposed humorous commentary on current events. Davidson remarked he noticed there was an unusual rash of "gross"...

    Since the Vietnam War, liberals have been known for their great disdain for America’s service members, despite their efforts to hide it. During NBC’s latest edition of Saturday Night Live, that disdain poked its ugly head out in the form of supposed comedian Pete Davidson mocking Republican congressional candidate and former Navy SEAL Dan Crenshaw about the eye he lost to an IED blast while serving in Afghanistan, “or whatever” according to the funny man. The vile attack came during the SNL’s faux news segment “Weekend Update” where Davidson was mocking multiple Republican politicians for their looks. The comedian stated...
