Harvey Weinstein Worked at Clinton White House 8 years

    Harvey Weinstein announced at an awards ceremony (a few years ago) that he was the chief projectionist at the White House for Bill Clinton from 1992 to 2000.  Harvey said they watched lots of movies together, and he even went on vacation with the president.

    According to someone from the FBI:  Harvey is being investigated by the FBI for his connections to known pedophile Jerry Epstein in light of sexual harassment accusations in Hollywood. 

    "In 2005, the world was introduced to reclusive billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, friend to princes and an American president, a power broker with the darkest of secrets: He was also a pedophile, accused of recruiting dozens of underage girls into a sex-slave network, buying their silence and moving along, although he has been convicted of only one count of soliciting prostitution from a minor. Visitors to his private Caribbean island, known as “Orgy Island,” have included Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew and Stephen Hawking." 

    "According to a 2011 court filing by alleged Epstein victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre, she saw Clinton and Prince Andrew on the island but never saw the former president do anything improper. Giuffre has accused Prince Andrew of having sex with her when she was a minor, a charge Buckingham Palace denies."

    It looks like the whole pedophilia / prostitution ring from Helly-wood to DC is coming down sooner than anyone might have thought.  The sooner the better as far as I am concerned, I have prayed and cried, and prayed and cried for so long, it is heartbreaking.

    Its been an Open Secret.

    The Independent reports that President Trump order the FBI prob.

      Harvey Weinstein's crimes are certainly horrific. We should do everything we can as a society to make sure those men who take advantage of and demean women and violate the law are put in jail. We should also not elevate those men who make a practice of demeaning women to any job, no matter how small. Those who witness such things should speak up. If such men are ridiculed and pushed aside, society will be a better place. Of this, I'm sure we can all agree.

        I guess the pervert figured he isn't going down alone. Maybe they told him they would make a deal if he rolled over on some friend...er, partners in crime.

        I can't help but wonder if this will change the way Hellywood operates.

      Considering the president in question; it is not surprising that he and Weinstein found a friendship. They had so much in common.

      It is continually amusing, and saddening, how the left defends, hides, and obfuscates up until the beans are spilled; and then they have a 'yeh, but what about this' attitude in an attempt to minimize the horror of the behavior exposed. Pigs are pigs. End of story. That ex-president is a pig, so is Weinstein. End of that story. Let's stop 'yes butting' and actually do something about the problem.

          His locker room comments were piggish. Did his rhetoric also result in such action? I don't know. I had a guy say he slept with me. Didn't happen. So, is he a pig on the level of Weinstein or Clinton? Not really.

              So, he appears to be a predator also. If he does this as President, I'll expect a better result from any Congressional inquiries than we had with Clinton.

              I will say that when a woman settles for money, as opposed to bringing charges, it says something about the situation.

        That’s funny because in the other thread about Weinstein there were a lot of people pulling “yeah buts” and none of them were from the dreaded left.

        It’s really unhelpful to continually pretend that there’s some division when it comes to being biased and making excuses for people who are on “your side.” Both sides do it, it’s just a matter of whose side is currently under fire for something.

                There is a realignment taking place, I talked about that in 2016.  Those that have falsely claimed to be conservatives are being exposed as the political globalist scum they are...ironically, they expose themselves.  The true conservative and the Evangelical conservatives have gotten fed up and are voting the pretenders out.  Some are just dropping out, because of investigations or they can see its over for them in "The Old Boys Club".  American politics has been a racket for far too long.  Its nothing like what you see on national news networks. 

                There is a populist movement, and its not just happening in the USA.
                The 2018 elections will be telling.

              I think if a woman takes the money and runs she may not have been as morally outraged as another.

              It is important to note the reasons why either party is in a particular situation which culminates in sexual misconduct. If you put forth an 'I'll scratch your back if you scratch mine' argument (even if it is only implied but consentually understood) it is different from an attack. With Weinstein we have evidence which suggests that his attitude was 'If you don't scratch my back no one will ever scratch yours'. This is different.

              Clinton, I'm not certain about. He appears to just have been a player who pissed off some women he was playing with.

              Trump, well he appears to be more of a leacher. Not a player.

              All three scenarios are disgusting, in their own right. Weinstein appears to have been in a position to negatively effect career goals and was willing to wield that position like a weapon.

            I’m aware. Your comment was even an even more vast and sweeping generalization.

                According to sources within the FBI, Weinstein has offered up the names of some of the most powerful and influential people in the United States in connection with pedophilia, child pornography, and human trafficking.

                Could this be the "Hurricane Harvey" that Donald Trump was referring to when he made his recent comments about "the calm before the storm"?

                Since Trump took office literally hundreds of arrests have been made for adult sex trafficking and pedophiles rings.  Many victims are being rescued, included as young as 3 and 6 months old.  Thankfully, but much more needs to done, it has to end.

                Are you not saying "yes, but" throughout this entire thread with regards to Trump? You started with this:

                "It is continually amusing, and saddening, how the left defends, hides, and obfuscates up until the beans are spilled; and then they have a 'yeh, but what about this' attitude in an attempt to minimize the horror of the behavior exposed. Pigs are pigs. End of story. That ex-president is a pig, so is Weinstein. End of that story. Let's stop 'yes butting' and actually do something about the problem."

                Then, when confronted with evidence that Trump is also predatory it was "yes, but those women settled for money." (Paraphrasing)

                Then, when reminded that many of Weinstein's accusers were paid off and Jones accepted  almost three-quarter mil from Clinton,it was another "yes, but...."

                I guess I see 15 accusers as substantial evidence that Trump is a predator using his money and power to shield himself from negative consequences. It bothers me that people are giving him a pass on this. He is POTUS. He should never have been elected with his track record of demeaning women.

                I don't understand how one could give a pass to Trump while accusing others of hypocrisy. It seems contradictory. What am I missing?

                  Live to Learnposted 7 weeks agoin reply to this

                  I think I stated my opinion on the women in question and not the actions of the men involved. If that was unclear I suppose it is my fault for not effectively communicating. My 'yes but' is more directed at their inability to prove that the act, itself, was what caused their outrage; since they willingly accepted monetary compensation. Maybe, Trump's foibles are obscured by my jaded opinion of our political process.

                  Yes, using money to shield oneself from negative consequences is wrong. However, if allowing money to be used to shield another from negative consequences, in order to allow others to experience what you have (the women accepting the money in all cases); are you not just as bad?

                  If you don't use money to shield yourself from negative consequences, but threaten the person you have preyed upon; is that the same? I think it is worse, and much closer to my definition of rape. And, that is what Weinstein was doing.

                  Stop the predators. Stop the predatory behavior. That's the goal. However, I consider myself open enough to look at the nature of behaviors involved, and understand the differences; in order to determine which are more dangerous. I think I stated Bill was a victim, in my opinion, of his libido.. Trump is a victim of his inability to view himself as others see him and Weinstein does not appear to be a victim, at all. Each woman involved must also be looked at to understand why she was there, what she agreed to and what was forced upon her. More information could change my opinion.

                    For some men, you could ram videos of their sexual predatory acts and their sexual innuendos in their faces. To them that shiny red fruit you handed to the teacher as a kid isn't an apple. To them, it's a banana. As yellow as these cowardly men are to admit when they are wrong.

                    But, using Bill Clinton as the always right wing bad boy reference for the "why" men call "apples" bananas, you see once they have to be shamed in front of their own wives, daughters and other relatives, they suddenly play the "victim" act.

                    So yes, that yellow banana may not be remotely like an apple in color or the ability to "produce" seeds, but that doesn't stop that banana from trying to ram itself ahead of the barrel of apples useful for not much more than mashing it to applesauce or using it for juice should those "bananas" suddenly turn too "soft" and "brown" to be useful to much more than the fruit flies.

                    The most recent example of the bananas are Bill Maher. He didn't mind the sexual molesting until the "apples" in his family got wind of it. Yet, these women can describe in absolute detail what these men did. Weinstein is now the icon for men who bully, harass and sexually objectify women whenever they get the chance. Suddenly, men want to turn Banana Boy Weinstein into a "victim" beause oh dear, the women in his family who knew his personality like the back of their hands refused to protect their own gender?

                    The "Me Too" is not going away this time. Men have hidden their sleazy sexual molestations for centuries. But now that all women pay equal taxes on unequal paychecks, they rightly refuse to be a sex object just to be hired for a job that will mean constant leering males who can't get their minds on their jobs and out of the gutters.

                    Yes but? You bet. Until those bananas are swarming with fruit flies.

      Harvey Weinstein, by his own proclamations, was the busiest producer in Hollywood. So if a pedophile is your husband or brother, it's okay so long as he has your last name? If a sexual molester if your uncle, well, just let him "help himself, right?"

      The women who are coming forward are really frying the brains of the very types of men most likely to excuse their own behaviors as sexual predators. Sorry, women pay taxes too and you don't get free feels on our tax dollars nor is a hand up a woman's skirt the only reason she should be hired.

    I am saddened and angered that Weinsten's behavior was excused and ignored for so long. We, the people, should not let powerful people abuse the powerless without consequence.

    Who will be the next powerful predator to fall? When the accusations surface, as they already have with Donald Trump, will people look the other way, just ad they did with Weinstein? They already have.

    Let's not allow it. Let's take down the hasty sexual predator who we call president. He is no better than Weinstein.

    Trump has a germophobia, he is a cleanliness freak, hardly a hallmark of perverts that don't fear communicable diseases.  I'm a cleanliness freak myself, I dislike shaking hands with people. 

    What Trump said on a hot mic, he should never have said, and he apologized publicly for those WORDS. They were just words, not actions.  All of Trump's accusers crawl off later into the shadowy darkness where they came from, no charges filed.  If charges were filed they were found to be false, one woman didn't even use her real name and address.  Anyone who studies body language saw how fake they were. 

    Accusation are just accusations and people need to learn how to separate propaganda from reality, it takes being able to reason and use logic.  Listening to liberal media propaganda programming is detrimental.  The media knows how the human mind works and they use that to their advantage.  I look forward to the day the fake reporters are replaced with real journalists.  That will be real change!

      If you caught the laundry job Bill O'Reilly is doing, you can see why these guys needed a sexual predator in the White House to continue their legacy of treating women's bodies like their "last frontier."

      Not all men are like this. The honorable ones defer to the judgments they know their female children and grandchildren will impose on them.

      You can only imagine the enormous Weinstein's wife and kids are now having to deal with from his decades of sexual bullying. Now, O'Reilly's trying to play the "victim" role to assuage guilt and defer the judgments of his own female relatives.

    As with the vast majority of such accusations they are often proven by law to be scurrilous claims by disgruntled "victims".
    How many of Cosby's accusers won their court actions for example.
    Currently the only legal police case against Weinstein involves a female who admits to voluntarily returning alone to Weinstein's room after a first alleged "rape". Legally speaking it's a very weak case.
