    if Weinstien’s abuse was an open secret then I wonder how many conservative actors / actresses knew about it? Woods, Selleck, Duvall, Grammar, Russell, Woolery. Can’t think of any women right now.


  2. For those of you who despise abortion, HHS has submitted it’s new strategic plan for 2018 – 2022 – “HHS accomplishes its mission through programs and initiatives that cover a wide spectrum of activities, serving and protecting Americans at every stage of life, beginning at conception.” Note the addition of the last 3 words!!!!

    Folks I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am today as an American! Our HERO, President Trump, took care of the Forgotten Men and Women. I also owe Senator Rand Paul an apology! I truly believe he and our President had this planned for over the last few months and Rand purposely came out against the Graham Cassidy Bill in order to put LUCIFER, COLLINS, MURKOWSKI on record once again to show how dishonest they were to the constituents in their states.

    Obamacare was the greatest PONZI SCHEME ever devised domestically. They needed younger folks, folks that had no preexisting conditions and those Americans in the 19 non expansion states that would possibly have qualified to pay a ridiculous premium each month in order to subsidize everyone else that fell below the 138% threshold in a Medicaid Expansion state (31 total).

    Their hope was twofold. People in the non expansion state would have screamed at their Governors to take the Medicaid Expansion and eventually those that were paying the ridiculous premiums to scream for SINGLE PAYER! Obamacare was set up to flop in 2017 and 2018 because the hope was that HRC or Jeb Bush would take the country to SINGLE PAYER.

    There are plenty of articles that will say that our President has sabotaged Obamacare. He owns Obamacare etc. I want to link and article that tells folks the truth about the EO and what the next steps will be.


    From the article linked above:

    With Congress’ repeated failure to pass Obamacare, President Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive action on health care Thursday to make it easier for individuals to form health associations and purchase insurance across state lines.

    The president has been working with Senator Rand Paul, R-Ky., for months to develop this executive order. In an op-ed for Breitbart News, Sen. Paul outlined several details of the plan.

    How will it work? Well, nationwide associations like the National Restaurant Association will be allowed to form groups across state lines and, with the leverage of size, demand Big Insurance bring down their outrageous premiums.

    Many of the 28 million people left behind by Obamacare who still don’t have insurance work low-wage jobs in our fast food restaurants. The President’s decision today will allow workers from two million restaurants to come together to form a buying group and through sheer size get cheaper and better insurance.

    Millions of people will be eligible for the same group insurance that big corporations offer. In fact, Health Associations may grow to be larger than the largest of our corporations. Currently, about half of private insurance is cross-state, self-insured ERISA plans, and most employees love them. The President’s action today will allow the millions of people in the individual market an escape route to group insurance.

    Association Health Plans will be among the biggest free-market reforms of health care in a generation, and it will do more to counter the impact of Obamacare than most of the repeal bills did, because it will actually go after regulations that the legislation didn’t touch due to Senate rules.

        Well, I agree the freedom caucus could be more pragmatic at times. However, they came into congress because of the Tea Party movement…..so I am pretty supportive of their end goal.

        I think Trump’s disappointment with the Freedom Caucus in the first few months had more to do with Ryan and McConnell feeding crap to Trump about them than their stubbornness. Remember Ryan made Trump think he had the votes when he never even consulted with other groups in Congress…then blamed the Freedom Caucus. That may have been by design on Ryan and McConnell’s part. They hate the Tea Party type candidates.

        Trump ended up working with the Freedom Caucus after that and got better results.

    Give me a Break — Weinstein isn’t going to rehab — he is going to kick back in some resort, probably have women brought in to him, while keeping the power he has always had… check this out…

    Harvey Weinstein Not Going to Live-In Rehab Facility, Worried About Leaks

    Harvey Weinstein and his team called a last minute audible for where he’ll be attending rehab, because they’re worried about details of his treatment being made public.

    Sources tell us the new plan is for Weinstein to receive treatment at a private residence in Arizona, and possibly isolated at a high-end resort. We’re told the therapy professionals will come and treat him in a private one-on-one setting.

    As we previously reported, Weinstein agreed to go to The Meadows in Arizona after his brother suggested he attend the popular treatment center, but his team was extremely worried people around him would leak out details of his treatment to the public.

    Celebrities attending The Meadows in the past, like Tiger Woods, had their location and treatment exposed, and Weinstein is worried the same thing could happen to him.

    The original plan was for him to attend treatment in Switzerland, which his team felt would have remained off the radar been an isolated environment. But now they feel a non-official location is the best choice to keep everything as confidential as possible.

    As before though, Weinstein’s plan could change quickly and at this point it is hour to hour. We’ll keep you updated on The Blast as the situation continues to unfold.

    AAAAAND now it is the guys’ turn… I hope they will start to name names, too, and I hope that the kids will start to speak up.

    FTA linked below:

    “James Van Der Beek has come forward as a victim of sexual harassment, saying he’s had “my ass grabbed by older, powerful men…”

    “I’ve had my ass grabbed by older, powerful men, I’ve had them corner me in inappropriate sexual conversations when I was much younger…,” Van Der Beek wrote, adding, “I understand the unwarranted shame, powerlessness & inability to blow the whistle. There’s a power dynamic that feels impossible to overcome…”

    Earlier this week, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star Terry Crews told the public that he was sexually assaulted by an unnamed Hollywood executive.

    “This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD. Why? Because this kind of thing happened to ME…,” Crews tweeted Tuesday. “My wife n I were at a Hollywood function last year n a high level Hollywood executive came over 2 me and groped my privates.”

    Crews said he didn’t “kick his ass” because he was worried about how the story would be spun in the media.

    “’240 lbs. Black Man stomps out Hollywood Honcho’ would be the headline the next day,” Crews shared, adding that he wouldn’t have been able to read it because he “would have been in jail.’”

        Amazon TV Producer Goes Public With Harassment Claim Against Top Exec Roy Price (Exclusive)

        “You will love my d**k,” Price allegedly said to Isa Hackett, a producer on ‘Man in the High Castle,’ who details a July 2015 incident at Comic-Con in San Diego.

        In the wake of revelations about Harvey Weinstein’s alleged years-long sexual harassment and assault, a producer of one of Amazon Studios’ highest-profile TV shows is ready to talk about her “shocking and surreal” experience with Amazon’s programming chief Roy Price.

        Isa Hackett is the daughter of author Philip K. Dick, whose work is the basis for Amazon’s Man in the High Castle, as well as the upcoming anthology series, Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams. Hackett, 50, is an executive producer on both series. Price, 51, is head of Amazon Studios and has presided over its growth into a major streaming service with such series as Transparent and movies such as Manchester by the Sea. His family has deep connections in the entertainment world: His father, Frank, ran Columbia Pictures and Universal Studios.

    Then the moderator said, that UK and Theresa May must be right when they insist on a trade deal between UK and EU.
    The French minister was stunned and couldn’t answer. The audience were laughing.
    Then IMF chief Lagarde stepped in and answered the question for him…!!!
    Lagarde slammed Britain.

    Here is the current question:

    Today’s Daily Mail has yet another claim about a woman’s career getting stuck in the doldrums after not going along with Weinstain: “Sophie Dix, 48, said her career was ‘massively cut down’ after the alleged assault.”

    Can anyone reveal how Weinstain might harm your career if you did not accommodate his advances? If this is true, he must have informed others in Hollywood to steer clear of some young woman. If he communicated anything like this, what would he say? “Don’t think for yourself – but trust me – her screen test was terrible”? -Or, did he say “the woman was stingy with her pingey, so don’t hire her.”

    Certainly, to halt someone’s career, Weinstain would have to contact a fair amount of people. This would be quite a conspiracy. And, were there really a host of Hollywood people keeping up with what young women to hire or not, based on his recommendations? Did those in the know give him a call whenever they were looking to hire a starlet?

    The alternative explanation is this: it is difficult to sustain steady work in Hollywood. If things go one ounce less than perfect, you can claim that Weinstain messed up your career, when maybe you were just experiencing normal difficulty?

    • Emma Thompson, extremely articulate, bright and talented cannot escape from the stranglehold of Leftist ideology. She correctly sizes up Weinstein and the endemic depravity in Hollyweird. Then, she has to push her feminist ideological framework in blaming “extreme masculinity” to include degenerate Weinstein, but has to top it off by blaming President Trump as numero uno, Mr. “extreme masculine”! No, Emma “extreme masculinity” is to be a gentleman!

        I’m happy Rose is doing what she’s doing (as she doesn’t Realize what she’s doing..haha) but it’s worth remembering that she made the film Rosewood Lane with Victor Salvo AFTER he had served time for molesting a 12-year old boy. The claim is that she said something along the lines of ‘what he’s done is none of my business’.

    I was so shockingly excited about the bombshell news POTUS dropped during his EO cross-border Insurance announcement, that I went in search of Boyle-Coleman freed-released photos.

    There is *always* photos. Always. Not this time. Curious me.

    The Boyle parents released a statement to the Canadian paper, ‘The Toronto Sun’. Son, Joshua Boyle, had phoned home yesterday morning. (Random. June 2016 article from same paper notes the Boyle family did not celebrate their son’s May birthday. A first, since his captivity) Joshua & family were safe but he had sustained injuries during the rescue. The family of 5 were being relocated out of the Taliban haqqani strongholds of Afghanistan, into the nethers of Pakistan’s warring tribal regions via the trunk of a car. U.S. intelligence tracked, kept tabs on Boyle-Coleman family. US enlisted Pakistani cooperation. (Bet. POTUS!) A gunfight ensued by Pakistan Army, killing all 5 kidnappers. Other sources suggest the kidnappers simply drove away.

    The hiccup. 👆 That hiccup, is Canadian, Joshua Boyle. (Let’s just say, he’s dang lucky he’s Canadian.)

    Boyle-Coleman are *still* in Pakistan, in an undisclosed location, apparently, negotiating transport. WHAT. THE. HEY!

    Boyle *refused* at-the-ready U.S. military transport out of the hellhole that held his family captive for 5 years, *kidnapped* by the Haqqani Taliban network. The same network that *kidnapped* Bowe Bergdahl. Trudeau will hail Boyle a hero, for sure. Over & Out.

      HOUSTON — Houston Congressman Al Green, U.S. Representative from Texas’ 9th congressional district is being accused of sexually assaulting a former employee.

      Green’s former district director, Lucinda Daniels, claims she was assaulted at her home in May 2007.

      “He sexually assaulted her, she did not give consent,” said Daniels’ attorney, Chip Lewis. “He tried to pursue a romantic relationship after that, she spurned his advances.”

      That’s when Daniels claims the Congressman made things hostile at work. After her resignation Daniels says Green then smeared her character to possible future employers. Daniels, according to Green’s attorney, allegedly demanded $1.8 million from the Congressman.
