Mr. Disney and Mr. Weinstein Meets Mr. RICO: Racketeering charges filed Friday

Published

on

Friday,  according to the New York Law Journal, “In a class action lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court, three more women have alleged they were sexually assaulted by former Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

Caitlin Dulany, Larissa Gomes, and Melissa Thompson allege they were each the target of Weinstein’s predations, which were facilitated by his production companies Miramax and The Weinstein Co., along with individuals at those companies, as part of an ongoing criminal enterprise.

“The suit alleges violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). Among the defendants named in the suit are Miramax and the Walt Disney Co., which now owns the studio,”NY Law Journal wrote.

According to the filing:

The proverbial “casting couch” was Harvey Weinstein’s office of choice, a choice facilitated and condoned by Miramax, The Weinstein Company (“TWC”) and its Board of Directors. Plaintiffs, and hundreds of other females like them, found themselves with Weinstein on the casting couch at offices, in hotel rooms, in his homes, or in rooms at industry functions.

Under the guise of meetings ostensibly to help further Plaintiffs’ careers, or to hire them, or to socialize at industry events, Weinstein isolated Plaintiffs and Class Members in an attempt to engage in unwanted sexual conduct that took many forms: flashing, groping, fondling, harassing, battering, false imprisonment, sexual assault, attempted rape and/or completed rape.

2. Plaintiffs and Members of the Class had or wanted to have careers in the entertainment industry and correctly understood that Weinstein was a powerful force in the production world. At all times, Plaintiffs and the Class operated under duress and the credible and objective threat of being blacklisted by Weinstein and major film producers such as Miramax and TWC if they refused Weinstein’s unwanted sexual advances or complained about
his behavior.

To the extent a woman was “lucky” enough to escape physically unscathed, Weinstein’s behavior (and the fact it was facilitated by TWC and Miramax, the “Complicit Producers”) nonetheless caused injury to their business prospects, career, reputation, and severe emotional and physical distress.

3. Weinstein’s power and the pervasiveness of his misconduct was recently summarized in The New Yorker as follows:
Since the establishment of the first studios, a century ago, there have been few movie executives as dominant, or as
domineering, as Harvey Weinstein. He co-founded the production and-distribution companies Miramax and the Weinstein Company, helping to reinvent the model for independent films with movies including “Sex, Lies, and Videotape,” “The Crying Game,” “Pulp Fiction,” “The English Patient,” “Shakespeare in Love,” and “The
King’s Speech.”

Beyond Hollywood, he has exercised his influence as a prolific fund-raiser for Democratic Party candidates, including Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Weinstein combined a keen eye for promising scripts, directors, and actors with a bullying, even threatening, style of doing business, inspiring both fear and gratitude. His movies have earned more than three hundred Oscar nominations, and, at the annual awards ceremonies,
he has been thanked more than almost anyone else in movie history, ranking just after Steven Spielberg and right before God.

THE MEDIA WAS IN COLLUSION

TRUMP’S WAR AGAINST HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND SEX CRIMES

CONSEQUENCES

Disney and Miramax could have their assets seized.

FLASHBACK-EXECUTIVE ORDER- ASSETS SEIZED

I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, find that the prevalence and severity of human rights abuse and corruption that have their source, in whole or in substantial part, outside the United States, such as those committed or directed by persons listed in the Annex to this order, have reached such scope and gravity that they threaten the stability of international political and economic systems. Human rights abuse and corruption undermine the values that form an essential foundation of stable, secure, and functioning societies; have devastating impacts on individuals; weaken democratic institutions; degrade the rule of law; perpetuate violent conflicts; facilitate the activities of dangerous persons; and undermine economic markets. The United States seeks to impose tangible and significant consequences on those who commit serious human rights abuse or engage in corruption, as well as to protect the financial system of the United States from abuse by these same persons.

 

I, therefore, determine that serious human rights abuse and corruption around the world constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.

 

I hereby determine and order:

Section 1. (a) All property and interests in property that are in the United States, that hereafter come within the United States, or that are or hereafter come within the possession or control of any United States person of the following persons are blocked and may not be transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn, or otherwise dealt in:

(i) the persons listed in the Annex to this order;

(ii) any foreign person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General:

(A) to be responsible for or complicit in, or to have directly or indirectly engaged in, serious human rights abuse;

(B) to be a current or former government official, or a person acting for or on behalf of such an official, who is responsible for or complicit in, or has directly or indirectly engaged in:

(1) corruption, including the misappropriation of state assets, the expropriation of private assets for personal gain, corruption related to government contracts or the extraction of natural resources, or bribery; or

(2) the transfer or the facilitation of the transfer of the proceeds of corruption;

(C) to be or have been a leader or official of:

(1) an entity, including any government entity, that has engaged in, or whose members have engaged in, any of the activities described in subsections (ii)(A), (ii)(B)(1), or (ii)(B)(2) of this section relating to the leader’s or official’s tenure; or

(2) an entity whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order as a result of activities related to the leader’s or official’s tenure; or

(D) to have attempted to engage in any of the activities described in subsections (ii)(A), (ii)(B)(1), or (ii)(B)(2) of this section; and

(iii) any person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General:

(A) to have materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, or technological support for, or goods or services to or in support of:

(1) any activity described in subsections (ii)(A), (ii)(B)(1), or (ii)(B)(2) of this section that is conducted by a foreign person;

(2) any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; or

(3) any entity, including any government entity, that has engaged in, or whose members have engaged in, any of the activities described in subsections (ii)(A), (ii)(B)(1), or (ii)(B)(2) of this section, where the activity is conducted by a foreign person;

(B) to be owned or controlled by, or to have acted or purported to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; or

(C) to have attempted to engage in any of the activities described in subsections (iii)(A) or (B) of this section.

(b) The prohibitions in subsection (a) of this section apply except to the extent provided by statutes, or in regulations, orders, directives, or licenses that may be issued pursuant to this order, and notwithstanding any contract entered into or any license or permit granted before the effective date of this order.

Sec. 2. The unrestricted immigrant and nonimmigrant entry into the United States of aliens determined to meet one or more of the criteria in section 1 of this order would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, and the entry of such persons into the United States, as immigrants or nonimmigrants, is hereby suspended. Such persons shall be treated as persons covered by section 1 of Proclamation 8693 of July 24, 2011 (Suspension of Entry of Aliens Subject to United Nations Security Council Travel Bans and International Emergency Economic Powers Act Sanctions).

Sec. 3. I hereby determine that the making of donations of the types of articles specified in section 203(b)(2) of IEEPA (50 U.S.C. 1702(b)(2)) by, to, or for the benefit of any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order would seriously impair my ability to deal with the national emergency declared in this order, and I hereby prohibit such donations as provided by section 1 of this order.

Sec. 4. The prohibitions in section 1 include:

(a) the making of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services by, to, or for the benefit of any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; and

(b) the receipt of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services from any such person.

Sec. 5. (a) Any transaction that evades or avoids, has the purpose of evading or avoiding, causes a violation of, or attempts to violate any of the prohibitions set forth in this order is prohibited.

(b) Any conspiracy formed to violate any of the prohibitions set forth in this order is prohibited.

Sec. 6. For the purposes of this order:

(a) the term “person” means an individual or entity;

(b) the term “entity” means a partnership, association, trust, joint venture, corporation, group, subgroup, or other organization; and

(c) the term “United States person” means any United States citizen, permanent resident alien, entity organized under the laws of the United States or any jurisdiction within the United States (including foreign branches), or any person in the United States.

Sec. 7. For those persons whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order who might have a constitutional presence in the United States, I find that because of the ability to transfer funds or other assets instantaneously, prior notice to such persons of measures to be taken pursuant to this order would render those measures ineffectual. I therefore determine that for these measures to be effective in addressing the national emergency declared in this order, there need be no prior notice of a listing or determination made pursuant to this order.

Sec. 8. The Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, is hereby authorized to take such actions, including adopting rules and regulations, and to employ all powers granted to me by IEEPA and the Act as may be necessary to implement this order and section 1263(a) of the Act with respect to the determinations provided for therein. The Secretary of the Treasury may, consistent with applicable law, redelegate any of these functions to other officers and agencies of the United States. All agencies shall take all appropriate measures within their authority to implement this order.

Sec. 9. The Secretary of State is hereby authorized to take such actions, including adopting rules and regulations, and to employ all powers granted to me by IEEPA, the INA, and the Act as may be necessary to carry out section 2 of this order and, in consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury, the reporting requirement in section 1264(a) of the Act with respect to the reports provided for in section 1264(b)(2) of that Act. The Secretary of State may, consistent with applicable law, redelegate any of these functions to other officers and agencies of the United States consistent with applicable law.

Sec. 10. The Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General, is hereby authorized to determine that circumstances no longer warrant the blocking of the property and interests in property of a person listed in the Annex to this order, and to take necessary action to give effect to that determination.

Sec. 11. The Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, is hereby authorized to submit recurring and final reports to the Congress on the national emergency declared in this order, consistent with section 401(c) of the NEA (50 U.S.C. 1641(c)) and section 204(c) of IEEPA (50 U.S.C. 1703(c)).

Sec. 12. This order is effective at 12:01 a.m., Eastern Standard Time, December 21, 2017.

Sec. 13. This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

Taylor Swift Gets Political In Favor Of The Democratic Party In Tennessee

Yvette Munoz

Published

on

Sunday, American singer and songwriter Taylor Swift disabled her comments on her Instagram account after writing a long passage as to why she supports Democrats Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House Representative in the state of Tennessee. She stressed the importance of voting and making your voice is heard. Unfortunately for all of you MAGA supporters who thought she was a pro-Trump, well… she is not.

Swift confirmed with her statement that she is a typical propagandist from Hollywood who wants you to believe that minorities are systemically oppressed in this country. Swift stated “I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent.” Her views on oppression could not be further from the truth. In America, people create their own luck depending on the hard work that they put in. Swift is a woman and regardless of her gender, she has a net worth of $400 million according to Celebrity Net Worth.

Taylor Swift spews the same alt-leftist talking points trying to insinuate that the Republican party is against LGBTQ, women’s rights and tolerates racism. Swift continued that those were the same reasons as to why she does not support  Republican House Representative Marsha Blackburn. Swift claims she believes in the gender pay gap myth and that Representative Blackburn is against women. “As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me. She voted against equal pay for women,” said Ms. Swift.

To wrap up her statement, Taylor Swift encouraged those turning of legal age and all others to get out and vote on the midterm elections, “So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count. But first you need to register, which is quick and easy to do.”

I’m writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I’ll be voting in the state of Tennessee. In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now. I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent. I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love. Running for Senate in the state of Tennessee is a woman named Marsha Blackburn. As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me. She voted against equal pay for women. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. She believes businesses have a right to refuse service to gay couples. She also believes they should not have the right to marry. These are not MY Tennessee values. I will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives. Please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote based on who most closely represents your values. For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway. So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count. But first you need to register, which is quick and easy to do. October 9th is the LAST DAY to register to vote in the state of TN. Go to vote.org and you can find all the info. Happy Voting! 🗳😃🌈

A post shared by Taylor Swift (@taylorswift) on

From the literature that Taylor Swift shared with us via her Instagram post, it is almost certain that she has not paid attention to the recent political events. The category of people who are continually being oppressed are conservatives or anyone who disagrees with leftist ideology. Taylor Swift is for the party of Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, and all other Democrats who advocate for direct confrontation of those who support the President.

VIDEO: #PayUpMichaelMoore, Michael Moore Refuses To Pay Bills For New Film

Published

on

Sunday, a person familiar with the very wealthy Leftist filmmaker, Michael Moore posted on Twitter that Moore was slandering people from a film company, who have helped him.

“I can’t sit by silently. We chose to speak up because we wanted to help our friends protect and defend their reputation. This is not about our president or politics. Please stop attacking each other, stop the name calling, stop the viciousness. Don’t lose sight of the actual issue at hand,” said Leonard Martin, a fellow film maker and supporter of Moores poltics.

“Boston Light and Sound doesn’t deserve this treatment by Michael Moore. The TCM Festival benefits tremendously from their stellar work,” said Martin.

“They are owed $150,000,” he said.

Losing support…

Interesting behavior for the wealthy socialist…

It is being reported that Moore slandered the workers who had helped him, and he also refuses to pay them for their services, according to hollywood in toto.

From their article, “Maltin says the filmmakers had to sue Moore, whose new film “Fahrenheit 11/9” opens Sept. 19, to recover more than $150,000 for services rendered to the Traverse City Film Festival. Moore founded the event in 2005 and continues as its very public face.

According to Maltin, Moore called the lawsuit a “personal vendetta” during a recent TIFF appearance.

While many film scribes wade into the culture wars Maltin sticks to the filmmaking facts. He’s not the sort to attack someone in such a fashion.”

BUT HE MADE AN EXCEPTION:

Crickets…

EXCLUSIVE: Proud Boys Protected Black Damsel in Distress, Twitter Leaves Her Defenseless

Published

on

Sunday, a woman who has been dragged thru drama after drama and harassed online by high profile Hollywood Resistance accounts, spoke to Populist Media about her love and respect for a group of posters now banned from Twitter, The Proud Boys.

“I met the  Proud Boys account in May they supported me through one of the worst attacks from the Hollywood resistance. I was honestly looking for some sort of protection,” said Sharika Soal, Celebrity Publicist and former Hollywood  Resistance member.

“My Proud Boy posted a video showing Proud Boys throwing out a white nationalist from their rally, and so I tagged them in a tweet and I was so relieved.  It was the first time I had actually seen someone from the right physically show me they would not stand for the KKK infiltrating their party to terrorize my community it honestly brought me to tears I loved them instantly,” she said.

BACKGROUND ON WHEN SOAL BROKE THE HOLLYWOOD RESISTANCE

Soal exposed her interactions with high profile members of the Hollywood Resistance to Populist-Media and we covered those conversations HERE.

POLITICAL BULLYING AND RACISM

Soal was the victim of online harassment and stalking by members of the Hollywood Resistance, the group led by Alyssa Milano, after interactions in chat rooms set up by Democrats.

When Soal left the online chat rooms for Resisters that she built, to look for support for her work exposing child crimes, she said she found understanding with the MAGA movement and inflamed hatred and anger from the Resistance group she left.

“The PB account and I spoke off and on about spreading the message of racial unity and so we would tweet at each other. He became my bodyguard, from the hatred of the Resistance, and Twitter bestie for real. I was and still am so heartbroken that he is now banned,” she said.

TWEETS:

It has been removed, but Sharika’s proud boy posted in response:

BANNED

“Twitter confirmed to BuzzFeed News that it banned the accounts of the far-right group Proud Boys for reportedly breaking its rules,” reported BuzzFeed in a Public Media Trial.

Full Article

“The acct is gone because it seems like there was no consideration at all for the actual person behind the acct,” Soal said.

CHANCE TO GIVE HER MESSAGE:

“My message is that we have never and will never survive without each other on this planet no matter the skin tone we truly need each other to thrive. I think we should take the headlines out of lives and being to realize no matter how much we blame each other it takes just as much effort to disagree as it does to stay committed to finding peace,” said Soal.
