    Bossier Parish Sheriff Julian Whittington said his office will no longer purchase Ford products after the automaker expressed support for National Football League players’ right to kneel in protest during the national anthem.

    In a letter to Hixson Ford of Alexandria on Wednesday, Whittington said “recent events surrounding the NFL, its players and their audacity to thumb their collective noses at the American flag, the American military, as well as their obvious disdain for the profession of law enforcement in general, forces me to take a stand.”

    contractually entitled?? So THIS is why Harvey Levin was dancing around yesterday –

    Harvey Weinstein may have been fired illegally by The Weinstein Company, a company that wrote a contract that said Weinstein could get sued over and over for sexual harassment and as long as he shelled out money, that was good enough for the Company.

    TMZ is privy to Weinstein’s 2015 employment contract, which says if he gets sued for sexual harassment or any other “misconduct” that results in a settlement or judgment against TWC, all Weinstein has to do is pay what the company’s out, along with a fine, and he’s in the clear.

    According to the contract, if Weinstein “treated someone improperly in violation of the company’s Code of Conduct,” he must reimburse TWC for settlements or judgments. Additionally, “You [Weinstein] will pay the company liquidated damages of $250,000 for the first such instance, $500,000 for the second such instance, $750,000 for the third such instance, and $1,000,000 for each additional instance.”

        Indeed, the new statements coming out are not particular to Harvey W. They are about “men”.

        This is what Julia Roberts said:
        “A corrupt, powerful man wields his influence to abuse and manipulate women. We’ve heard this infuriating, heartbreaking story countless times before. And now here we go again. I stand firm in the hope that we will finally come together as a society to stand up against this kind of predatory behavior, to help victims find their voices and their healing, and to stop it once and for all.”

        Hollywood is making an effort to make this about rich men, powerful men. They will try to use this against POTUS Trump (again).

          Harvey Weinstein deserves to be in prison, but I’m getting a little tired of the sanctimonious denouncements of men by these actresses. If none of them were willing to do immoral things to get parts, then the immoral men would lose their power.
          And every one of them that gave in to Harvey’s advances took a part from a moral actress who wouldn’t.

          One of them talked about essentially being raped and then developing a 5 year consensual affair with him. I don’t consider her to be a victim, but rather a collaborator.

          Kudos to the actresses who actually acted on their convictions and turned him down. Those are brave women with convictions and morals.

          And I notice that while they are saying there’s a lot more than Harvey out there, they are only naming the guy (Harvey) that can no longer influence their careers.

            What makes me angry are veterans like Meryl Streep and Jane Fonda saying they had no idea. I don’t believe that for a second. The hypocrisy is so mind-boggling.

            It’s also worth noting that some of the actresses who turned him down but had huge careers anyway (like Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow) had family connections in Hollywood already. They were not fresh from the farm, so to speak.

        Yes, I 100% agree. The hollywood casting coach is their experience v. real men in “flyover country” so they then hate men. Don’t they realize that they were victims of liberal men? I had thought the exact same thing, remembering back to the unreasonable hatred of Ashely Judd and now she is a long silent sexual attack victim in an environment where this was common and hushed. No wonder they feel so powerless and are so full of hatred!

        Is this the so called stockholm syndrome that we see when they continued to side with, function in and profit from the rape culture of hollywood all the while lambasting colleges and conservative men for supposed rape culture and suppression of women?

  21. Rose McGowan and the other victims are in dangerous territory now. Their accusations can not be contained and are killing the Left and their agents Hollyweird, the Dems, media. The victims and the likes of Emma Thompson are trying to steer this back to an issue of “extreme masculinity” and the dangers of patriarchy and white male “domination”. Rose McGowan brings up Anita Hill. Bannon once did a failed piddling deal with the Weinsteins. They are on the deck of the Titanic looking for a right wing white male to scapegoat.

      Steve Mnuchin better look out! He was producing movies, too.

      But seriously, they can gabble all they want about toxic masculinity. We have heard that before. We’ve seen that movie, too. What is catching people’s attention are the names being drug into the mud, like Matt Damon, Ben and Casey Affleck, Jeff Bezos.

      People are reading the stories and paying attention to the details, not general “men have been sticking their tongues down my throat for forty years….” yeah okay got it. But who? When?

      Shocking me today (and I shouldn’t have been shocked) were the four men, Rob Schneider, James Van Der Beek, Terry Crewes? and David Hayer or something like that that spoke of being hit on or aggressed on by powerful Hollyweird men because as I am sure all of us who graduated from Political Correctness Diversity Training Camps at our jobs can recite in perfect unison “Gay men are never predators.”

      They can try to divert this narrative by bringing up PDJT and the ho hum P***y Gate tapes, but it isn’t going to work. By the time the MEN get done spilling their guts and the former and current child starts start talking, look out.

    Anthony Bourdain blasts Hillary Clinton’s ‘shameful’ interview regarding Harvey Weinstein

    Clinton appeared on Fareed Zakaria’s CNN show Wednesday and addressed the Weinstein’s allegations

    Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain bashed Hillary Clinton on Twitter Wednesday calling her interview on CNN about Harvey Weinstein “uninspiring,” “shameful” and “disingenuous.

    Excerpt:

    “I was — I was just sick,” Clinton told Zakaria. “I was shocked. I was appalled. And, you know, like so many people who’ve come forward and spoken out, this was a different side of a person who I and many others had known in the past.”

    Clinton told Zakaria she was not aware of Weinstein’s actions.

    OMG! Notice how quickly she got over it?

    I *was* just sick, not *I am* just sick

    I *was* shocked, not *I am* shocked

    I *was* appalled, not *I am* appalled

    Also note how she is desperately trying to distance herself from him now.

    A person I *had known* in the past, not A person *I know*.

    She is a total disgrace!
