A few more bits and pieces on Harvey Weinstein, the Clinton clan, and democrats in general.
I am shocked- shocked- to find that gambling is going on in here!
Clinton, in an interview with CNN's Fareed Zakaria as part of her ongoing book tour, said she was "sick" and "shocked" when she found out about the sexual assault allegations…
She’s shocked – shocked. Apparently so shocked that she was in a coma or something for five days after hearing the news:
Clinton's initial silence -- it took her days to release a statement -- was perplexing to some Democrats, with even some longtime advisers privately questioning the decision not to quickly weigh in.
She is ready to do her part now; she will donate an amount equal to what Weinstein has given to her past campaigns – supposedly all of $13,000:
"What other people are saying, what my former colleagues are saying, is they're going to donate it to charity, and of course I will do that," she said. "I give 10% of my income to charity every year, this will be part of that. There's no -- there's no doubt about it."
Wait a minute…she gives 10% every year anyway, and this $13,000 will be part of the 10% this year? I guess it really is true – government accounting is different than normal accounting (do yourself a favor – take thirty seconds to watch the video).
But the best bit of news is hidden in this little gem:
The two were also personally close: In 2015, the Clintons rented a home next to Weinstein in the Hamptons.
Yes, that’s right. Bill and Harvey as neighbors; that must have been quite a party.
No Background Check?
Malia Obama, 19, landed an internship at the Weinstein Company right after her dad left office earlier this year…
Now I know that this internship was after Barack left office, but gee…you would think that a former president could still pull a few strings at the FBI, especially since they were still working for him in any case. But, really, the stories were already pretty well known.
I mean, really – it was just their teenage daughter going to the other side of the country – why worry about it? After all, Harvey was a good friend – just ask Michelle, who said in 2013: “He is a wonderful human being, a good friend and just a powerhouse…”
Oh…I forgot to mention…it also took Barack and Michelle five days to make a statement on the Weinstein affair.
Hillary, We’ve Tried to Get You to Shut-up for Almost a Year
One might wonder why all of this is coming out now.
I have heard some speculation about the reason that this Weinstein episode has become an issue at this time – and keep in mind, stories about him and others in Hollywood acting the same way have been around for decades.
Many democrats have been trying to get Hillary to go away ever since she lost to Trump; maybe the Clintons will not be able to run away from this connection.
Keep in mind, the initial story on Weinstein was put forward by the New York Times. The same New York Times that sat on the same story in 2004. And outlets like CNN are making sure to tell us that Hillary took five days to make a statement.
There Goes the Neighborhood
Harvey Weinstein -- who more than anyone defined and shaped the sharp-elbowed art of Oscar campaigning -- has been expelled from the group that presents the Academy Awards.
I suspect about half of the members of this group deserve similar treatment.
The Hypocrisy of the Left
You don’t get much more left than Hollywood, Clinton, or Obama. You don’t get much more left than denouncing those who treat women as nothing but playthings. You don’t get much more left than denouncing Trump for using locker room talk while ignoring people like Bill and Harvey.
Put it all together and you get your typical modern-day liberal.
A Bit on the Non-Aggression Principle
“If you want this job, you have to have sex with me.”
“But bionic, all we need is for people to respect the NAP; nothing more is necessary.”
Sure. You send your daughter out to live in that world. Are you sure that that’s the world you want?
