Harvey Weinstein To Avoid Paying $25 Million Settlement

Published

on

Disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein has reportedly reached a $25 million settlement as part of a complicated court case being conducted in New York involving his studio and over 30 female accusers.

Weinstein is one of over 260 members of the elite – in entertainment, the media, politics, and more – who have been accused of sexual misconduct and assault by hundreds of women since 2017, when the first Weinstein accusers helped open the floodgates for the #MeToo movement.

However, despite the firestorm of outrage, for many justice has been long in coming, and indeed may be still far away. For example, the $25 million settlement does not require Weinstein to actually admit any wrongdoing, and will not even be paid by him, but by insurance companies representing his bankrupt studio, The Weinstein Company.

In fact, around $12 million will actually go to Weinstein for the purpose of offsetting his legal fees. The rest will be shared by over 30 women who have accused him of sexual misconduct.

Weinstein’s health has deteriorated significantly, largely as a result of a car crash in August for which he continues to require surgeries to manage pain. The alleged rapist cut a derelict figure limping out of court proceedings on a walker, and together with his legal team has already attempted to use his condition to gin up sympathy from the public and the judicial system.

However, this plea for sympathy contrasts badly with the fact that Weinstein has had his bail raised from $1 million to $5 million after numerous continual violations of his ankle monitor.

Even if this case proceeds favorably, the Hollywood predator’s troubles are unlikely to be over. Independent of proceedings in New York, it was reported recently that the LA County DA’s office is now reviewing eight cases against him received from the LAPD and Beverly Hills PD.

The cases under consideration in California also relate to accusations from women of sexual misconduct. Two of these were submitted recently, while the others have been in review for close to two years.

While Weinstein begs for sympathy from the press and finagles his way out of admitting guilt or making monetary restitution, his accusers continue to be denied justice. One of them, British actress Lysette Anthony, recently revealed that she continues to be tormented by nightmares of the multiple times she alleges that Weinstein violently raped her.

Unfortunately, the cases of individuals such as Jeffrey Epstein or Jussie Smollet demonstrate that the ruling class live by a different set of rules and are rarely held accountable for their crimes, no matter how evil. Perhaps one day the double standard will become too intolerable for people to bear.

Donald Trump Quits ‘Dismal’ Screen Actor’s Guild Following Threats: ‘You Have Done Nothing for Me’

Trump blasted this ineffective union before quitting.

Published

on

Former president Donald Trump has issued a letter to the Screen Actor’s Guild (SAG) resigning from the union effective immediately after the SAG announced they were considering expulsion.

“I write to you today regarding the so-called Disciplinary Committee hearing aimed at revoking my union membership. Who cares!” Trump wrote in the letter addressed to SAG president Gabrielle Carteris.

“While I’m not familiar with your work, I’m very proud of my work on movies such as Home Alone 2, Zoolander and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, and television shows including The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Saturday Night Live, and of course, one of the most successful shows in television history, The Apprentice – just to name a few!” he continued.

“I’ve also greatly helped the cable television news business (said to be a dying platform with not much time left until I got involved in politics), and created thousands of jobs at networks such as MSDNC and Fake News CNN, among many others,” Trump added.

This is when Trump started maligning the SAG by pointing out their miserable record as a union, which is being sued by its own membership for failing to provide adequate healthcare benefits.

He wrote: “Your organization has done little for its members, and nothing for me – besides collecting dues and promoting dangerous un-American policies and ideas – as evident by your massive unemployment rates and lawsuits from celebrated actors, who even recorded a video asking, ‘Why isn’t the union fighting for me?'”

“These, however, are policy failures. Your disciplinary failures are even more egregious. I no longer wish to be associated with your union. As such, this letter is to inform you of my immediate resignation,” Trump added.

Big League Politics has reported on the film industry’s shame over having promoted Trump for so many years, helping Trump build the notoriety among the American public that allowed him to become the 45th president:

The West Hollywood City Council voted unanimously on a resolution to remove President Donald J. Trump’s star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday.

“West Hollywood City council unanimously passes resolution asking the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove the Donald Trump star on Hollywood Walk of Fame,” said West Hollywood Mayor John Duran on Twitter.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will have to approve Trump’s star removal for it to be officially bar.

“The Hollywood Walk of Fame is a registered historic landmark. Once a star has been added to the Walk, it is considered a part of the historic fabric of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Because of this, we have never removed a star from the Walk,” said Leron Gubler, the Chamber’s president and CEO.

Among the stars that will certainly not be removed from Walk of Fame are those belonging to accused pedophile Kevin Spacey, and convicted rapist Bill Cosby.

Apparently, as long as one apologizes, Hollywood has no problem with alleged pedophilia.

Trump couldn’t have become president, changed the country forevermore, and exposed the Left’s treacherous agenda in the eyes of tens of millions of Americans without the help of the entertainment industry. They have now outlived their usefulness, but the ironic role they have played in promoting America’s revival will not be forgotten.
