Hollywood Exposed- Days of Weinstein and Roses

Hollywood Exposed- Days of Weinstein and Roses

We somehow knew it was going to happen…eventually… certainly… finally…it just had to…

Given all of last year’s outrage about the Billy Bush tape of Donald Trump yucking it up with locker room language, all of the feminist lament about the president’s nomination and election, all of the “pink-hat” protests during his inauguration, and all of the invective hurled at the president during this year’s Emmys and Oscars award ceremonies, lo and behold…

…this year’s award for hypocrisy in the crusade for women’s rights goes to…

…the envelope please…

…Hollywood…

…specifically, the liberal, Trump-bashing, Hillary-loving, Obama-worshiping, oh-so-holier-than-thou star-studded Hollywood celebrities who like nothing better than to lecture the rest of us on how to think and vote.

Harvey Weinstein, far and away the largest individual contributor to all causes and campaigns Democrat, has now been exposed for the complete and total serial sexual predator that he is…using his power and influence to prey upon young wannabe starlets who have had to “put out” if they want the stardom they so desperately seek. Worse, come charges which are now pending for criminal sexual battery and rape, in both the United Kingdom and the United States.

Abiding Weinstein’s predilection for pursuing pretty young women, were all of the older, established stars of both sexes, who knew all along that Weinstein was a regular practitioner of “casting couch” auditions, and said nothing…nothing… about it until the you-know-what hit the fan.

Where was the outrage from those celebrities- so given to voice their disdain for the president, based largely on uncorroborated stories of Russian hotel rooms and insane innuendo, when it came to a real sexual predator from within their own industry?

Why did it take five days for both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to voice their own outrage (if that is what you call it) over the public revelations of that which they must have already known, from private whispers, that Harvey Weinstein- the same Harvey Weinstein who contributed so much cash to their campaigns and causes- was doing to young starlets what both of them have been doing to the country?

“Actually, there is no way to return the cash…” – did she really say that?

Of course, Hillary Clinton is well-versed and well-practiced in the art of accepting political support from serial sexual predators who just happen to be members of her own political party, or for that matter, her own marital household.

Weinstein routinely did to young aspiring actresses what Bill Clinton did to scores of women, including Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey and countless others over the years. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton- that bastion of feminist causes and all things “woman” who can rail about the insensitivities of Donald Trump’s language- that same Hillary Clinton used her commitment to women’s issues by turning around, fending off and trying to destroy the lives of those women who had fallen under her husband’s prey.

We expect this level of hypocrisy from Hillary Clinton. She is slime, after all, and we can all thank Divine Providence that she was not elected to the world’s most powerful office.

But now that Barack Obama has finally, albeit tepidly, assailed Harvey Weinstein for his transgressions (with no promise to return any cash, by the way), and watching the predictable parade of Hollywood celebrities all queueing up to join in the outrage, we now know the answer, all too well, as to why it took so long for all of them to speak out against Harvey Weinstein, and why NBC and the New York Times intentionally squashed the story when it first came out…

…it’s because, after all, at least Harvey Weinstein isn’t, God forbid, a Republican…

Inexplicable- the Carnage in Las Vegas

Inexplicable- the Carnage in Las Vegas

When all is said and done, we many never know just what prompted Stephen Paddock to perpetrate the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. As of this writing, more than fifty lay dead and several hundreds of others are wounded, all the result of one crazed shooter, and for reasons known only to himself.

A Nevada resident, living in an upscale retirement community located in Mesquite, Paddock checked into the Las Vegas Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, secured a room on the thirty-second floor, barricaded the entrance to his room, and opened fire on a crowd gathered across the street to enjoy the last night of a three-day country music festival. Equipped with ten rifles including automatic weapons, and an abundance of ammunition- enough to kill hundreds, Paddock was well-prepared to exact massive carnage and he even set up a video feed to alert him of the imminent approach of law enforcement officers dispatched to neutralize him. Given the amount of ordinance he carried into his hotel room, this was doubtlessly a well-thought-out, pre-planned attack which was meant to maximize the taking of innocent life prior to the commission of his own suicide.

Licensed to carry firearms and to fly private airplanes, Paddock, who was believed to work as either an accountant or an auditor, apparently had no prior felony charges even though he was “known to local authorities,” according to a Fox News report. He had no ties to domestic or international terrorism and apparently carried no racial or religious animus, and there was nothing about the man to suggest a propensity to launch such an attack…and that might well prove to be the most frightening aspect of all.

After all, how can such an attack, at the hands of such a person, ever be prevented?

Sadly, it can’t be, and that is part of what is so very disturbing about this horror.

The mainstream media will no doubt search for some reason that Stephen Paddock went off the rails of sanity, and decided to kill on a broad scale. They will “hope” that they can somehow find a way to tie this shooting to President Trump, or to the “alt right” or to some other entity which drives their pre-conceived narrative that this is the result of Trump’s whatever, fill-in-the-blank. They will resurrect the cry for gun-control, even though, as we have learned, anyone wielding a knife or driving a motor vehicle can achieve the same dastardly results, given the propensity to do so.

Yet the reason- the real reason that this attack took place may be staring all of us in the face, though we all are loathe to admit it.

The simple fact is that there is evil in this world- pure, diabolical evil that is at the heart of what took place in Las Vegas, in the evening hours of October 1st, 2017. It’s the kind of evil that can only come from diabolical and demonic forces which are very real- forces that are set upon mankind from without, to foment a steeping hatred from within, and exact revenge on the innocents at their most vulnerable. The fact that such attacks take place often defies all logic or reasoning.

Nevertheless, it is for each of us to see this for what it really and truly is, and to pray that we all may be delivered from the evils that surround us in such a troubled world.
