Good riddance

The rocks are being overturned, one by one:
BREAKING: The Weinstein Co. board of directors announces that Harvey Weinstein is terminated, effective immediately.
Of course, it took three directors resigning before they realized they would have to take it seriously. It will be informative to see who tries to rehabilitate him.

There are also rumors that Weinstein is only the first, and the least important, Hollywood figure who will be taken down.

How is it any different for the likes of Ashley Judd to refrain from speaking out about Weinstein preying upon women than it is for Milo Yiannopoulos to say nothing about the Hollywood parties he attended in which he witnessed pedophilia? In both cases the acts are illegal, although I'll stipulate that pedophilia is more repugnant than sexual harassment. But, in Judd's case she advanced her career substantially by deciding to collude with Weinstein with her silence. And she wants to be a US Senator from Kentucky?

As BGKB Steve observed on Gab, Judd was likely happy for Weinstein to grab her by the pussy as long as it lead to an Oscar.

Watching for Meryl Streep's move. She either knew about this 'open secret' and did nothing willingly (which is bad enough), or couldn't act (which means her greed and lust for fame overrode her conscience).

If she plays ignorant, that also reflects badly. I mention her, because her smug level is off the charts.

What we should also expect (being the cynic that I am) is they will try and push it under the rug by pumping money into feminist activist groups. Then a year later things will go back to before.

That the NYT turned on a Hollywood Mogul is the undercurrent that really needs a good explanation. Something big has changed, and it's not just normal intra-Left spat.

A shakedown of other players doesn't make the most sense. I'd go with the assumption that one group is throwing another completely to the wolves to save themselves. Which means someone really important started talking and we're just seeing the beginning.

The assumption has to be he became a "problem", but to who? Tribalism didn't save him. Being a big Dem donor got him nothing. He didn't suddenly change, so something in the environment has to have changed. And people finding morals wasn't it. The Casting Couch will continue on, if more discreet for a while.

There was a theory that one of the rounds of "The Fappening" was actually the theft of a big player's phone. If that was Harvey, this could just be a revenge ploy by someone. (Not impossible, as Harvey clearly had enemies.) Not beyond the possibility, but why did the NYT turn on him? This wasn't a TMZ hit.


@11 Crew

Hollywood is a money farm for the Dems. They actually don't listen to the LA crowd. That's different with the SanFran crowd. Silicon Valley has taken over large chunks of the Democrats and has massive control. This could be a operation from the SV factions to wipe out major players in Hollywood.

That would explain who could put enough leverage on the NYT to publish on the subject. It also let's SV distract from their own issues. Feed Hollywood to a Congress hungry to grandstand while keeping the DoJ off your own butts? The SV crowd are better at business than Hollywood, and they'd be devious enough to do this.

Sending your ally that is competing with you for Power, and getting in the way in general, to your mutual enemies is a pretty classic move.

Also possible it was a Chinese Op. They've been buying up chunks of Hollywood of late, and to buy more they need it to be a lot cheaper. Well, I've got a few good ideas for driving the price down, and one of the biggest is to wipe out key movers & shakers.

The Clintons still control the DNC. The Clintons actually control pretty much everything but SV among the Dems. Obama's faction retreated back to Chicago and are generally sitting things out, it seems.

Side-point: part of the reason Obama was so loved by some factions of the Dems was he took down the Clintons. The Clintons have a lot of enemies.

It's been put forward that Harvey was saying bad things about Hillary, so this might be more of a "horse's head in the bed" move, because Hillary is running 2020. That's why we're 11 months after the election and we're still seeing her in the media.

Since we's all just speculatin', here....

Some big Chinese moves come in, spreading around a lot of cabbage to buy up properties and people. The existing power-brokers can't compete at that price. They push the Chinese money into a few choice places where they have some high profile names and sleazy expendables. Then they out the patsy (Harvey), watch all things connected to him crash in value, helpfully bail out their Chinese "friends" at fire-sale prices, and consolidate power, deflect criticism of themselves, burn the chinks, and maybe settle a few side-issues at the same time.

Or maybe it's just the incestuous and amoral Hollyweird have a more public spat than normal because the bad movie season left them with less hush-money than normal.

There is also the factor that a lot of people in middle America haven't been, shall we say, ok with their daughters used like disposable f-toys for slobbering Hollywood scumbags. The time has come, perhaps, for them to cut their losses and this may be orchestrated to 'get in front' of an inevitable backlash.

(((Those))) that belong to this particular group of fellows never will actually suffer, shekel-wise. Weinstein is conservatively worth $200 million dollars. He may be slapped on the wrist for public consumption. He may also have legal rulings against him. But, he has more than enough to weather the storm. What I find interesting is how the alt-right types' turning the lefts' tools against them has begun to be successful. They are using Alinsky's tools against the Alinskyites and it seems to be working. Weinstein is being outed in public and the MSM can't stop that from happening. The hypocrisy of the left doesn't allow them to ignore a narrative they've championed for decades even though, if it was up to them, they'd let Harvey continue to do his perverted waltz and scar X-number of budding females, one of their main constituencies.

Harvey has been a thorn in Hollywood's side for a long time. He's very lucky he meet Tarantino. Don't forget he pioneered the pay for play in getting an Oscar with Shakesspeare in Love. Judy Dench won Best Supporting Actress for 10 minutes of screen time. The poster child for his casting couch is Gretchen Mol, who came out of nowhere and was suddenly the "it" girl. The Weinsteins were brutally parodied in Jay Mohr's Action TV show from 1999.

"Once it was clear that the show wasn't going to be renewed by FOX, the Creative Team took vicious aim at the Weinstein Brothers with the Rothstein Brothers, portraying them as villainous gluttons who are even more morally bankrupt than Peter."

Hollywood is appears to be undergoing a huge shift from old, corrupt liberals to idealistic Bernie progs of today. People are realizing their message is shit if they don't walk the talk.

My biggest laugh is the assertion that the NYT and other press organs have been "trying" to get this story for years. Since this behaviour is reliably reported to have been going on since the 1990's, their "reporters" and "editors" have either not been looking very hard, or have been actively looking away (and a report the NYT had this story in 2004 but spiked it is all too believable).

I am going with the theory that he is a victim of the factional wars going on inside the Dem party and the larger Progressive movement. He is either being taken out directly to protect the Clintons, or (my theory) since the Clinton's influence is waning, other factions have concluded it is best to get him out of the way to finish the job and also keep him out of the hands of other potential players.

This is a great "own goal" for our long term benefit as well. 4GW teaches that you need to attack and break the networks of power, influence and finance of the enemy, and things like this being exposed, the NFL issue and the total ineptitude of Democrat jurisdictions in dealing with natural disasters (from the crumbling dam in California to the inability to distribute supplies in Puerto Rico) is probably doing more to break these networks than any direct attacks that *we* can pull off. Not to say that there are not active measures that are within our capabilities and reach, but this is far bigger and better.

Though His tv series have done alright his studio hasn't had a big movie hit in years, I believe the last one was 2012's Django Unchained which sucked. More then money it's the influence a successful movie has that the Left wants and Harvey Weinstein can no longer deliver. That is why he was finally brought down.

Yeah, that's a knee-slapper. The NYT's own reporter says they buried a story she did on him years ago. Of course, she accepted its being buried, instead of quitting and taking it down the street. How principled all these feminists are when sexual harassment and assault are at stake!

There's a report out now that his lawyer gave the DA $10K at the same time the DA dropped a sexual assault case against him a couple years ago. So we're talking actual crimes, not just immoral quid pro quos with actresses willing to do whatever it takes.

Also, it's not just about the actresses who got Oscars and kept their mouths shut, so they aren't terribly sympathetic. What about the ones who rode the casting couch and never got Oscars, never made it big at all? How many crawled for guys like this and didn't get the part, and ended up in porn or prostitution? There seems like great potential for really ugly, embarrassing stories for the industry, which they can afford even less than usual these days with the pedo squads closing in.

@64 Thucydides

We know there is a factional war going on in parts of the Democrat party, but it pretty much won't ever show up in the press. MSM covers for their own. Good chance Harvey went down as part of it. But was it as a message? Was it a Power Play? Was it establishing a new player? Was it to cement access to certain foreign funds? Was it all & something else as well?

Sundance at CTH pointed out there is a Dem Donor problem. Several industries, notably Hollywood, exist to recycle money to campaigns. This does produce a situation where there's a good reason to scalp someone, thus everyone else keeps paying. Though that's a big strong for Dem factional war fighting, given the fact that this wasn't a kill-shot. This is something that could return fire soon enough.

Considering the Debt that Hollywood would have with China, at this point, I still favor a non-American party setting this off. Someone might have given Harvey's brother an ultimatum, and this ended up being the result. Though there's a lot of parties that would want Harvey removed, so most of these ideas aren't mutually exclusive.


In other Machiavellian news, the Trump admin has sent a "harsh", massive immigration legislation outline to Congress. Pelosi & Shumer went ballistic about it. DACA dies in March then burns up in orbit over 2 years. Trump has now shown "heart" to the DACA ppl, tried to make a deal with the Dems and, would you know it, the bill died in Congress? Not like people can like Congress less, now can they.

https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2017/10/08/president-trump-sends-letter-to-congress-outlining-immigration-principles-and-policies/

The best play, from a Game Theory approach, to the play all 3 sides (MAGA, GOPe & Dems) against each other. The side-benefit to killing DACA this way was knocking out Strange, Corker, Flake and (likely) Heller. And, it would seem Bannon has his sights on murdering the GOPe, at the ballot box.

Someone has to create a picture juxtaposing Meryl Streep at her bizarre Oscars monologue declaring that the people of Hollywood are the "guardians of truth" with a series of pictures of Meryl smiling for the camera beside Harvey Weinstein over a period of decades.

Weinstein wasn't fired because the board found out he's a predator. He was fired because *we* found out

@78 It's not even that 'we' found out. It's been known by the public that cared to look for a long time, there have been multiple articles published over the years about "Harvey's Girls", the entire arc of Gretchen Mol's character on Boardwalk Empire is about him (considering that she was one of his girls way back when).

The only reason the media hounds have been unleashed on this and it is being allowed to stick is that behind the scenes some protection has been lifted. Either it is a coup and some new group will be running Hollywood soon (if this is the case my guess would be the Chinese) or it is a pre-emptive house clearing in an attempt to cut off/minimise an upcoming larger scandal.
