Nolte: Hollywood Enables Countless Sexual Predators and Still Wants to Take Women’s Guns

How is it that the very same Hollywood that is, by admission, overflowing with sexual predators, has just launched yet another gun control campaign meant to make it more difficult for Americans, most especially women, to obtain the most effective weapon at stopping a sexual assault -- a concealed firearm.

How many sexual predators are currently roaming around free in Hollywood? Well, in just the last few days, members of Hollywood's own royalty have outed countless predators who, to the best of our knowledge, have not been brought to justice. And unless and until these predators are identified and charged, what we have on our hands is a city teeming with the kind of criminals who are more likely than any other to repeat their crimes.

TheWrap's Sharon Waxman has found witnesses to back up her claim that the left-wing New York Times killed a 2004 story that exposed producer Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual predations.

Bombshell: Longtime Clinton Friend Admits ‘Warning’ Top-Level Democrats About Weinstein

Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, the creator of the iconic 90s sitcom Designing Women and a close friend for decades of Bill and Hillary Clinton, admits that she not only knew of producer Harvey Weinstein’s predations, but that she warned “top-level” Democrats about him. Buried deep within a Hollywood Reporter guest column, Bloodworth-Thomason drops this bombshell (with a deflecting shot at Fox News): “I confess to having had no problem warning at least three top-level Democratic operatives against allowing Harvey Weinstein to host political fundraisers. A warning that evidently (and to the glee of Fox News) fell on deaf ears.” She also says she was a member of “a ‘Let’s Bring Harvey Weinstein Down’ lunch club” and appears to express some disbelief towards those who, “despite knowing him for decades,” now “announce they had no idea what was going on.” To this, she writes, “OK. Whatever.” If Bloodworth-Thomason knew about Weinstein’s alleged predations and warned top-level Democrats, how difficult is it to add two and two to come up with the Clintons and the Democrat Party knew? Certainly, and we have no reason to doubt Bloodworth-Thomason, at least three top-level Democrats knew, and did nothing to stop Weinstein from becoming a major player and

Jessica Chastain Admits Hollywood Has No Moral Authority: ‘We’re Very Quick to Point the Finger at Others’

Oscar-nominated actress Jessica Chastain went directly after a key issue that, in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal, will affect Tinseltown for at least a generation -- the fact that the decades-long, industry-wide cover-up of sexual misconduct has destroyed whatever residual moral authority Hollywood had left.

Nolte – Fake News: Literally No One Believes Hollywood Can All Of A Sudden Police Itself

Harvey Weinstein, US film producer and executive producer of the TV series 'War and Peace', poses during a photocall at the MIPCOM audiovisual trade fair in Cannes, southeastern France, on October 5, 2015. Held each year on the French Riviera, the audiovisual trade fair brings together the movers and shakers of the global entertainment business to network, talk shop and buy, sell and finance new content.

Behold the biggest pile of BS to come out of Harveywood yet: "Producers Guild Creates Hollywood Anti-Sexual Harassment Task Force." Talk about putting the fox in charge of the henhouse, the thief in charge of the bank, the Cookie Monster in charge of the cookies. On what planet are we supposed to believe this announcement is anything other than window dressing for a cover-up meant to protect the status quo?

Nolte — #MeToo: Hollywood Remains Harveywood Until Names Are Named

moore weinstein
There is a Big Story in Monday's New York Times: "Harvey Weinstein's Fall Opens Floodgates In Hollywood." Except for the fact that not a single floodgate is open, that headline is deadly accurate.

Nolte: After Defending Child Rapist Polanski, George Clooney Lectures Middle America in ‘Suburbicon’

Judging by the trailer and the early (and awful) Suburbicon reviews, George Clooney is once again chomping at the bit to lecture Middle America about just how awful and intolerant we all are. But are we really going to allow ourselves to be scolded by a mediocre director who defends an admitted child rapist like Roman Polanski?

Rose McGowan: Lisa Bloom Offered Millions to ‘Silence Me’ About Weinstein

Sunday night, using her Facebook account, actress Rose McGowan accused disgraced attorney Lisa Bloom of offering her millions of dollars to hop on board the "Harvey's Changed bandwagon."

Nolte: Enabling Harvey Weinstein, Celebrating Child Rapist Roman Polanski — Hollywood Is Evil

If you have not seen this director's movies, you have almost certainly heard of them. What you probably do not know, though, is that a few decades ago this director served time for child molestation. After his release, he then spent a few years in the purgatory of office life before resuming a film career.

Nolte: Lisa Bloom Accused of Shady Tactics to Shield Amazon’s Alleged Sexual Harasser

Just last week, after a year of standing beside those accusing Bill Cosby, Bill O'Reilly, and President Trump of sexual misconduct (all three deny any wrongdoing), 56-year-old Lisa Bloom seemed on the verge of stepping into her mother Gloria Allred's shoes as America's premier left-wing, feminist attorney.

Nolte: Why Did NBC Spike Hollywood’s Biggest Scandal Ever? Weinstein Is a Democrat.

Never in the sordid, 100-year history of Hollywood has there ever been a scandal that even approached the size, scope, and consequence of the still-mushrooming Harvey Weinstein sex-a-palooza.

America Fights Back: Record Number of Patriotic Cord-Cutters Tumble TV Stocks

CNN protest
There is only one way -- one! -- to finally and forever destroy Hollywood and much of the mainstream media. You have to cut your cable or satellite cord. You have to cancel your pay TV package. The one-legged stool propping up ESPN, CNN, MSNBC, Disney, MTV, and the entire Tinseltown crime syndicate is you paying for cable TV.

Oscar-Winning Director Oliver Stone Accused of Sexual Assault

As more and more women step forward to give public testimony about their alleged abuse at the hands of Hollywood power -- Harvey Weinstein, Ben Affleck, Amazon Studios chief Roy Price -- more and more women are coming out about their alleged abuse at the hands of Hollywood power.

Report: Harvey Weinstein’s Contract ‘Allowed’ for Sexual Harassment

Although the board for The Weinstein Company (TWC) has been claiming all week that no one knew anything about co-chairman Harvey Weinstein's appalling behavior towards women (some of which he admits to, some of which he denies), that stand is going to be harder to hold now that TMZ is reporting that sexual harassment was "allowed" in Weinstein's employment contract with TWC:

The Great Unraveling: Amazon Studio Chief Accused of Sexual Misconduct

Just hours after actress Rose McGowan launched a broadside against Amazon CEO (and Washington Post owner) Jeff Bezos with the accusation that the richest man in the world was "funding rapists, alleged pedos, and sexual harassers," one of Bezos's top executives, Roy Price, was publicly accused of harassing television producer Isa Hackett.

Hillary Clinton Senior Advisors Attack Boyfriend of Weinstein’s Alleged Rape Victim

The boyfriend of Asia Argento, one of the three women who claimed to have been raped by Harvey Weinstein, is under attack by Hillary Clinton aides.

Sinister Cycle Continues: Terry Crews, James Van Der Beek Not Comfortable Naming Abusers

Just as one cannot imagine what it must be like for a woman to be assaulted by a man, so too is the idea of a man being sexually assaulted by another man an unimaginable act. That is what actors Terry Crews and James Van Der Beek claim happened to them. And as if to prove that the same sinister culture that protected Harvey Weinstein for three decades still exists, neither actor will name his abuser(s).

Bombshell: Weinstein Board Knew About Harvey’s Payoffs In 2015 (What About Disney?)

Out of the growing fear that the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal is about to spin out of control, is about to bring down those (like Ben Affleck) who are not useless has-beens like Harvey, the bombshell news that The Weinstein Company board knew of Harvey's payoffs to women is being downplayed, especially by the Hollywood trades. Nevertheless, it is still a bombshell.

Deadline, Variety, Hollywood Reporter Circle Wagons to Protect ‘Buttman’ Ben Affleck

Ben Affleck
Good faith searches reveal that, as of this writing, nowhere on the home page of either Variety, Deadline, or the Hollywood Reporter will you find a headline with the words "Ben" or "Affleck." How is this possible in a news cycle where Hollywood's Batman is being dubbed "Buttman" due to a whole new round of groping allegations?

Ben Affleck Accused of Groping Actress Hilarie Burton

The Daily Mail reports that Harvey Weinstein protégé Ben Affleck is facing the accusation that he groped actress Hilarie Burton in 2003 when she was just 21 years-old.

Disney, Weinstein Company Could Face Harassment Lawsuits as Scandal Widens

ZURICH, SWITZERLAND - SEPTEMBER 22: Harvey Weinstein speaks at the 'Lion' press junket during the 12th Zurich Film Festival on September 22, 2016 in Zurich, Switzerland. The Zurich Film Festival 2016 will take place from September 22 until October 2. (Photo by Alexander Koerner/Getty Images)
Michael Eisner and Jeffrey Katzenberg, who ran the Walt Disney Company during the Harvey Weinstein years (1993-2005), have both denied any knowledge of Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct during those years. This would include any sexual harassment settlements made during that time. The Weinstein Company also denies any knowledge. These denials could be tested in a court of law should those alleging harassment and abuse choose to press the issue of corporate liability.

Jolie, Paltrow, Arquette, and More Detail Weinstein’s Alleged Sexual Misconduct

The New York Times reports that seven actresses, including Oscar-winners Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow, have come forward to tell their sordid tales of being harassed by Harvey Weinstein. The accusations range from 1993 to 2003.

After 5 Days, Ben Affleck Condemns Harvey Weinstein (Without Naming Him!)

After five days of scandal, Ben Affleck -- a lifelong Democrat -- has apparently come out to condemn embattled Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. I say "apparently," because Affleck does not name the mogul who made him a star in 1997 with Good Will Hunting.

Nolte: CNN, Kimmel and Colbert Make ‘Whataboutism’ Great Again to Protect Harvey Weinstein

Wasn't it just a few weeks ago that the MSM was lecturing those of us on the political right about the intellectual dishonesty of "Whataboutism?" Why, yes -- yes it was. In fact, here is the leftwing Washington Post declaring "Whataboutism" a "cheap rhetorical trick."

Hollywood Sex Assault Cover-Up Explodes: Asia Argento, 2 Others Accuse Weinstein of Rape

According to The New Yorker, three women, including Asia Argento, a royal member of independent cinema, allege that Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein raped them.

Cover-Up: Not Even One Harvey Weinstein Story on Politico’s Homepage

Politico does not identify itself as left-wing. Politico presents itself as objective, unbiased, and not-at-all-leftist. How, then, does Politico explain that, as of this writing, not even ONE story about the Harvey Weinstein scandal is on its homepage?

Nolte: Rose McGowan Is Right — The Entire Weinstein Company Board Should Resign

So far there appears to be only one hero in the mushrooming story surrounding decades of sexual harassment and sexual misconduct allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, and that hero is actress Rose McGowan.

TheWrap’s Sharon Waxman Remained Silent for Years About Weinstein Allegations

In the wake of last week's New York Times bombshell report that covers decades of sexual harassment and sexual misconduct allegations against uber-producer Harvey Weinstein, a number of people are being treated as whistleblowers even though they allege they knew about Weinstein's behavior and remained silent for years. We can now add Sharon Waxman, CEO and editor-in-chief of TheWrap, to that list.

Bombshell Report: Feminist Attorney Lisa Bloom Sought to Discredit Weinstein Accusers

The New York Times reports that it has seen emails that show feminist attorney Lisa Bloom attempting to collude with The Weinstein Company (TWC) to discredit some or all of the women accusing TWC co-chairman Harvey Weinstein (who was fired over the weekend) of everything from sexual harassment to sexual misconduct.

Nolte: Playboy’s Hugh Hefner Liberated Us Straight Into Hell

My highest political value, the one that informs everything from my vote to my political activism, is individual liberty. An ideal America is one where every consenting adult is allowed to live their life in whatever way they choose. As long as you do not touch the tip of my nose, feel free to swing your fists however you like.

Feminist Attorney Li$a Bloom Downplays Harassment Allegations Against Harvey Weinstein

Feminist Lisa Bloom is downplaying sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein as the behavior of "an old dinosaur."

Nolte: Silence is Complicity – The Powerful Said Nothing as Harvey Weinstein’s Alleged Victims Piled Up

Thursday's New York Times bombshell, which has effectively ended Oscar-winning producer and Democrat super-donor Harvey Weinstein's career, contains two equally disturbing pieces of news, only one of which the national media will report and explore.

With his move from the Washington Post to CNN, Chris Cillizza went from a dishonest leftwing news outlet to one with no scruples whatsoever.

Hollywood Titan, Hillary Donor Harvey Weinstein Accused of ‘Decades’ of Sexual Harassment Against Young Women

The New York Times dropped a career bomb on Harvey Weinstein, the multiple Oscar-winning producer and Democrat power donor. According to the report, Weinstein has settled no fewer than eight sexual harassment complaints over 25 years, between 1990 and 2015.

Narrative Fail: Plurality of 48% Approve of Trump’s Tax Plan; 45% Approve of Him

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump gives two thumbs up to the crowd during the evening session on the fourth day of the Republican National Convention on July 21, 2016 at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump received the number of votes needed to secure the party's nomination. An estimated 50,000 people are expected in Cleveland, including hundreds of protesters and members of the media. The four-day Republican National Convention kicked off on July 18. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)
Despite a coordinated, full-court savaging throughout the national media, President Trump is showing a counter-intuitive resilience among actual voters -- you know, those people who live in the real world outside the cable news bubble. In both the Rasmussen poll of likely voters and the latest Politico poll of voters, Trump's job approval rating has jumped to a healthy 45 percent.

Sisters Say Vegas Shooter’s Girlfriend ‘Sent Away’ Before Massacre

Two sisters of Marilou Danley, the 62 year-old girlfriend of Stephen Paddock – the man behind Sunday's shooting massacre in Las Vegas – claim that she was "sent away" by the shooter without knowing why.
