    to make lily-livered Hollywood types feel better' The actress' outing comes following her candid statement in which she said she understands why Donald Trump supporters hate Hollywood, whose apparent liberalism she says is fake. On the subject of #MeToo, she told the publication: 'I just think they're douchebags. They're not champions. I just think they're losers. I don't like them. … 'How do I explain the fact that I got a GQ Man of the Year award and no women's magazines and no women's organisations have supported me? 'It's all bullshit. It's a lie. It's a Band-Aid lie to make...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | October 7, 2018 | Byron York
    A lack of contemporaneous evidence was always the greatest weakness of Christine Blasey Ford's allegation that at a high school party in 1982 — 36 years ago, when she was 15 years old — a drunken 17 year-old Brett Kavanaugh forced her onto a bed, tried to undress her, and, when she tried to scream, covered her mouth with his hand. But the second biggest weakness in Ford's story was that it did not appear to fit into any pattern. There were no other allegations that Kavanaugh had done anything similar to anyone else. In the notorious #MeToo cases of...
  • When the Brett Kavanaugh circus ends, we won't forget your sins, Matt Damon

    Future historians probably won’t devote entire volumes to Hollywood actor Matt Damon for his part in the grotesque savaging of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Sadly, Damon will most likely be just a footnote, some jester in motley, participating in the American political circus. It is that circus in which Kavanaugh, a man of exemplary public reputation, has had his honor stripped by the political left, accused without evidence or corroboration, as a high school sexual predator, a gang rapist, a drunken bully and boor. If Damon is remembered at all in this, it will be for a bit part, his mimicry...

    FULL TITLE: Not All Women: GOP Women Are Furious Over Democrats' Anti-Kavanaugh Smear Campaign; UPDATE: Dem Strategists Worry The Democratic Party is the one that supports women, is for women, and is fighting for their rights. And yet, some of their biggest supporters in business and media are absolute pigs. Look at disgraced former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, former CBS News Executive Les Moonves, and of course, former Hollywood media mogul Harvey Weinstein. There was JFK, Ted Kennedy, and Bill Clinton. All parties above treated women like garbage. They’re sleaze. Yet, it surely helps to keep news of...

    Attorney Debra Katz made the rounds Monday on morning television to argue her client’s sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh should be taken seriously, an appeal accepted even by the White House. But while her client's claims have raised bipartisan concerns about Kavanaugh, Katz, a longtime Democratic donor known for representing sexual harassment accusers, also has a history of downplaying or dismissing accusations made by women against Democratic politicians -- including former President Bill Clinton and former Minnesota Sen. Al Franken.

    PBS’s Judy Woodruff asked former president Bill Clinton Thursday whether he thought it was a “good thing” that norms have changed when it comes to sexual harassment. Woodruff’s example was former Minnesota senator Al Franken being forced to resign his post after accusations that, Woodruff said, were less serious than what happened in the Lewinsky scandal. "Well, in general, I think it's a good thing, yes," Clinton said about norms changing. He then proceeded to defend Franken and question the legitimacy of some of the accusations against him. "I will be honest,” he said, “the Franken case, for me, was...

    Former Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) on Friday offered up a line of questioning for Democrats to use on President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Franken, who resigned in December after multiple allegations of groping women, said that if he were still in the Senate he would want to drill down details on a statement that Kavanaugh made this week when he was nominated. After being introduced by Trump during an event at the White House on Monday night, Kavanaugh thanked the president, saying, "Throughout this process, I’ve witnessed firsthand your appreciation for the vital role of the American judiciary."...

    Townhall.com ^ | January 30, 2014 | Larry Elder
    Democratic fundraiser/actor Ben Affleck -- and the next big-screen "Batman" -- recently gave an interview to Playboy. His own bias against Republicans, he admits, prevents him from fully enjoying a Republican actor's performance. "It's ... hard," said Affleck, "to get people to suspend disbelief." Affleck said: "When I watch a guy I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn't like this person if I met him, or we would have different opinions. That (bleep) fogs the mind when you should be paying attention and be swept into the illusion." Fair enough. But how do you...

    Over the weekend, Saturday Night Live gleefully piled on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, and did so less than a year after this very same SNL came out in full-throated support for credibly accused serial groper Al Franken. Let’s back up a bit… The reason Democrats and their establishment media allies are now launching conspiracy theories about Kavanaugh “lying” about his teenage drinking is that the sexual misconduct allegations against him have collapsed. Simply put, by any objective measure, Kavanaugh has been wrongly accused, smeared, a victim of sexual McCarthysim. In my four decades of watching politics, never before have...

    After this weekÂ’s devastating hearings involving Christine Blassey Ford, who testified that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in the 80s, we werenÂ’t sure what SNL would roll out of the gate with. Over the last few years, SNL has been an Emmy winning satire on the state of American politics, but sometimes laughter isnÂ’t enough. When it calls for it, Saturday Night Live doesnÂ’t hesitate to ditch the traditional cold open to address the issues of the week. When the Las Vegas shooting happened, the show opened with James Aldean performing a tribute. Following Donald TrumpÂ’s election,...

    It took the French Revolution ten years (1789-1799) to go from an idealistic fight for freedom to the one-man rule of Napoleon, but these are fast-moving times and the #MeToo movement has gone from the necessary correction of monsters like Harvey Weinstein to an all-out assault on the rule of law and hatred of the entire male sex in about eighteen months. (Well, it was men who came up with the Magna Carta.) Think I'm exaggerating? How about the nauseating misandry of the senator from Hawaii, Mazie Hirono? Not only, in the eyes of Ms. Hirono, is Brett Kavanaugh automatically...

    With sexual harassment in the news in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, is it really a good time to hold a political fundraiser for someone who used his position of power to gain sexual advantage from the wife of someone who once ran his political campaign? Movie star Reese Witherspoon held a political fundraiser on Friday at her home for the gubernatorial campaign of California Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom, who admitted to an affair in 2007 with the wife of the campaign manager for his election as San Francisco mayor. Witherspoon recently complained about a sexual assault (see...

Workers reset the star on Saturday in the face of a vote by the West Hollywood City Council in early August to have the star permanently removed. The Walk of Fame, however, is administered by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, whose President, Leron Gubler, had this to say about the matter: “Any star, which is...

    Yes it's true....Harvey Weinstein, Morgan Freeman, Barack Hussein Obama and, yes, add Hillary Clinton are for certain, birds of a feather that flock and belong together in prison. Can you imagine that "Sex Predaters", Weinstein & Morgan were abusing and using women without their consent for their weird sex escapades while they were financing and shouting out to Americans to support and elect both Obama and Clinton as POTUS. Clinton and soon, Obama will have been found to have committed worse crimes against the people and nation of the United States of America. If you don't think so...just just tuned...

    Twentieth Century Fox was just days away from locking picture on “The Predator” when an urgent note came in: Delete the scene featuring Steven Wilder Striegel. Striegel, 47, didn’t have a big role in his longtime friend Shane Black’s reboot of the sci-fi thriller — just a three-page scene shared with actress Olivia Munn. But last month, Munn learned that Striegel is a registered sex offender who pleaded guilty in 2010 after facing allegations that he attempted to lure a 14-year-old female into a sexual relationship via the internet. When Munn shared the information with Fox on Aug. 15, studio...

    On Monday Meet The Press host Chuck Todd challenged the media to embrace what most of them are already embracing and in effect become part of the "resistance"  by urging them to "stop complaining---and start fighting back." Only a day later, Fox News host Tucker Carlson challenged Todd to pause "fighting back" long enough to explain what he knew about the NBC coverup of the Harvey Weinstein story.

    President Trump on Tuesday once again suggested NBC News' broadcast license should be revoked, this time because of the network's handling of Ronan Farrow's Harvey Weinstein exposé. @real Donald Trump Trump alluded to recent accusations from a producer that the network tried to kill Farrow's investigation into Harvey Weinstein's sexual misconduct. Farrow ultimately published the piece at The New Yorker. NBC News Chairman Andrew Lack has sent out a memo to staff arguing that Farrow's reporting was not ready to broadcast last year, but Farrow is taking issue with this version of events, saying that the network tried to stop...

    The producer who worked alongside Ronan Farrow at NBC News on his Harvey Weinstein investigation quit in protest earlier this month. Rich McHugh tendered his resignation on Friday, Aug. 17, a year to the day that the Weinstein story left with Farrow. Since then, Farrow has won a Pulitzer Prize for a series of articles that revealed allegations of sexual harassment and assault—and questions have lingered about why the network gave up on the story that helped launch the #MeToo movement. NBC News has long insisted the Weinstein exposé wasn’t ready to run on air or online, contrary to Farrow’s...
