The company knew

 So much for the protestations of innocence.
Harvey's brother and fellow co-founder Bob Weinstein, as well as the company's president, David Glasser, had told concerned staff as recently as Tuesday that they were shocked and unaware of the confidential settlements made with various women.

However, according to a clause in his 2015 contract, if the movie mogul was charged with sexual harassment he was in charge of all legal payouts and had to pay an additional fine to the company.
'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,' the contract reads.

According to the document, as long as Weinstein pays it constitutes a 'cure' for any misconduct and no further action can or will be taken.

In more simple terms, that means that no matter how many times he is sued - as long as he is willing to pay he won't be fired.

If Weinstein were to ever be indicted for a crime the contract contains language that would allow the Board of Directors to fire him.
No, but you see, it was only "to cover consensual affairs." Sure it was. Good luck trying to hold that line of defense.


UPDATE: And the knives are now out, now that it is clearly safe to declare opposition.
Hachette Book Group is disbanding the company's Weinstein Books imprint, effective immediately.

"Going forward, titles currently under the Weinstein Books imprint will be published by our Hachette Books imprint, and the Weinstein Books imprint team will join Hachette Books," the company said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.

Perseus Books, which is part of Hachette, has had a co-publishing agreement with The Weinstein Co. that has produced about 10 books a year.

UPDATE: Ronan Farrow deserves all the credit he is getting, and then some. When NBC shut down his investigation, he kept it going on his own dime, then brought it to the New Yorker. Suffice it to say this is NOT normal journalistic behavior.

I wasnt familar with him but i noticed that a lot of his movies suggest that he was sex obsessed. Tie me up tie me down for example. It seems he blurred the line between wholesome entertainment and pornography. May the next generation of producers keep pornography in the dark dirty caves of the earth and not in the light.

Are there any prevailing theories on the answer to "Why now?" Did the dam of his unrepentant sin just burst? Was he doing something the NYT didn't like?

Blogger dc.sunsets October 13, 2017 8:47 AM  

No specific theory, but in general it seems like the disparate elements that once marched arm-in-arm in the Marxist Parade are now turning on each other. The "Deep State" isn't monolithic; all of its separate satraps believes he is the One True Master, and as the Red and Blue can no longer coexist, neither can the various elements within them.

The Left (filled with demons and deviants) has lost the cohesion that let it steamroll decency.

@Azimus First off, the NYT: the story was started by the NYT, but it was a hasty job, because they knew the NY story was going to break, so they needed to spike it.

I'm curious about 'why now' too, seen a few theories but nothing really holds water (eg. NY writer being who he is wasn't going to back away and let it get buried, or that there was confidence enough that the Clintons et al weren't the force they were, or that it was red meat to distract from the really nasty Hollywood stuff).

Maybe there is no conspiratorial reason. Sometimes a pipe is just a pipe.

I think it was out of control. Terry Crew's comments were probably peak out of control. Yesterday, accusations against other execs were notably tailing off. Mcgowan got a punch in on the Amazon producer but all other actors quit talking about any thing other than the ones who were already burned. I have a feeling the agents and production companies got their talent back in line. The way things are going now this looks like it has been contained. The question is if any other reporter, or Farrow himself, push harder and ignore the consequences.

Actually this also looks a lot like the Koran regarding the act of sexual relations with animals. First, it is horrible to do. Then, but if you do, here is what you can use the animal for after and to whom you are allowed to sell it. All religions are not the same, yet many outside of Christianity have similar loopholes.

Whether or not it started for that purpose (I'd say not), it's being used as a distraction from Vegas (which itself was a distraction), but more importantly from the Awan trial, which the entire MSM is aggressively ignoring. They've already established that more than 40 Democrat congressmen signed falsified invoices, a cut-and-dried federal crime carrying real sentences. The GOP should be going for the kill to put them all behind bars for 2018, but instead Ryan has been colluding with Pelosi to try to smooth the whole thing over. It's the worst case of espionage and corruption in the nation's history, and it's being covered by the Daily Caller, while everyone else talks about whether Ben Affleck gets too handsy sometimes.

Oh well. Some stories have more salacious appeal than others. The Hollywood stuff has the potential to lead to the same destination via different paths. It's not going to go away unless everyone agrees to let it, and I don't think that's going to happen.

I believe it serves as a warning to others on the Left that the will toe the line ir else. I believe there are elite pedophilia rings and that they are there for the purpose of enforcing discipline. Perhaps Weinstein was not enthusiastic enough in supporting progressive policies.

Anyway, I would be careful about framing this as a victory for the right. It is more likely that the Left is cleaning house and sending a signal to their assets about who is really in control.

Sure, sexually harassing somebody, particularly a subordinate or a job applicant, is bad enough and it's rightfully criminal. But outright rape is a whole 'nother level of criminality of even more seriousness. And so is the act of corrupting a minor.

And we can now add both those additional crimes to the assembling catalogue perpetrated by Harvey Weinstein. Yesterday Rose McGowan threw down the rape allegation, and Kate Beckinsale threw down that Harvey attempted to seduce her and ply her with alcohol when she was underage.

In addition to Harvey several others now face allegations of questionable conduct:

Ben Affleck
Roy Price
Oliver Stone
Andy Signore
Harry Knowles
Devin Faraci

And, these people have been outed as enablers and damage controllers for the molestors:

Russell Crowe
Matt Damon

My theory is that this is a decoy. Harvey, as yet, has not been accused of molesting anyone under the age of consent. he like adult babes. Lately there have been large pedo arrests in Norway , Canada, and other places. They need a distraction to bury this. Who else is better than someone not involved in the pedo ring, so he cannot reveal any information, and the media can dump on.

One of the objective signs to me that the leftwing complex really is collapsing is that they are now forced to distract from the extremely damaging stories with the merely very damaging stories. This has been a pattern in the last few months.

We know that New Duranty Times spiked the story at least 13 years ago. At the end of the day, it's much sound and fury ... signifying nothing of importance. Why now?? Tasty as the schadenfreude is, all the huffing and puffing is there to distract from other things. Harvey is unlikely to do time in a state where knowingly passing HIV is a lesser crime than using a pronoun which a tranny does not like. Meanwhile, a things like this fly under the radar (thanks Cail Corishev):

Whether or not it started for that purpose (I'd say not), it's being used as a distraction from Vegas (which itself was a distraction), but more importantly from the Awan trial, which the entire MSM is aggressively ignoring. They've already established that more than 40 Democrat congressmen signed falsified invoices, a cut-and-dried federal crime carrying real sentences. The GOP should be going for the kill to put them all behind bars for 2018, but instead Ryan has been colluding with Pelosi to try to smooth the whole thing over.

Not only that, but a fair list of Gay Old Pedobear congressmen introduced some new gun control legislation which would have the effect of outlawing semi-autos altogether, probably revolvers as well. Cuck Ryan no doubt approves. You can be sure the D-jerseys will approve. Maybe this is Harvey fighting the NRA (as promised) while the idiocracy is distracted with the screeching of whores.

Harvey Weinstein and Imran Awan are essentially two threads which can potentially unravel many of the networks of power, influence and finance that the Progressives have built over the decades. Hollywood and Washington are major nexus where these networks come together, and these revelations mean they can be broken.

The NFL represents an opening into the sports/media/entertainment nexus, and of course eventually we will see the threads leading to the centres of finance and banking. The unravelling of the networks is the goal us the alt-right insurgency, what makes this so much better is the openings are being provided by "own goals" supplied by the Progressives themselves, either through hubris, avarice or infighting amongst themselves.

Take advantage of all these opportunities, however you are able.

What it seems to me is that they attempted a "modified limited hangout". They knew Ronan's story was going to come out, so they admitted in part, mea culpa, make sure to re-up your threats to the people you've bought off, 6 months in a nice Swiss rehab clinic, and everybody forgets.
What they found out was there were too many people who were just waiting for their chance. Too many women who are completely disgusted by you, who had to play along. Too many children raped.

Too many people who hate you.

never mind that Harvey was enabled by women and had tons of actual female accomplices.

Not to mention that there are female predators out there every bit as bad as Weinstein... keep an eye on the PussyCat Dolls story.

They want to bask in the light of victimhood and hit back at Weinstein but not a one will ever admit they bought their career with sexual favors. They want it both ways as usual. Is there anyone who believes you, herioin addicted Angelina Jolie wouldn't service Weinstein for the right price?

Crew up above linked the tweet by another victim, one of the Pussycat Dolls (she claims her 'band' was only about prostitution, not music. No way!/sarc).

Anyways, she uses the term 'turned out' in one of the tweets.

Gonna call it here again: this is a potentially devastating rhetorical term to take out a wide swath of the enemies of civilization.

Puts the offender in the category of the pimp (scumbags), with many, many westerners needing redemption to rise out of the miasma of being used up by these people. Perps can be the legal, academic, media etc. industries.

With the Coreys, I get the distinct feeling a massive amount of money was paid to prevent the names from coming out. With how open it's been, the only way they wouldn't have named names was some legal agreement not to. They've been willing to say everything but a name and a few specific details. It means the name is intentionally protected, but the cost was money and he could talk around the situation.


@110 JJ from AZ

Distinctly possible. Ronan is a pretty smart guy, but putting that much effort in means this was part of a personal campaign. This also explain how an intra-Tribe Op was pulled off. Ronan is, legally, Woody Allen's son. (Not that he looks anything like him.) The guy has taken the brunt of the evil of the Movie business right in the family structure. (His "father" is also his brother-in-law. That's too much for any man with dignity.) So there's a deeply personal angle to all of this.

It also explains why this one couldn't be stuffed. Harvey had extended himself too far and was very vulnerable, and he had an enemy with means & ability to strike at him. Once the Op was confirmed, after The New Yorker agreed to publish the story, the rest of the media got out ahead of it. There's some lessons in here that people really should take.

It is their greed for money and fame which motivates them to sell out, and while they are preaching to us from on high about racism, sexism, climate change etc. and banning us and blacklisting us, calling us bigots and troglodytes, they are helping cover for perverts and pedophiles, for the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil, so we now see them for what they really are: hypocrites!

The narcissistic short sighted trendies in Hollyweird haven't realized the bubble has burst. For decades they were unassailable, impeachable and to a certain degree untouchable. Celebrities were worshiped like modern gods; fanatically, devoutly and unquestionably. Those who worked behind the scenes, the Directors, Studio Execs and Producers were the Kingmakers and players.

However they were destroyed by their own hubris. Actors playing make believe earn 6 figure incomes. While their "work" is intangible and difficult to monetize, its not an exaggeration to say that all Top Tier actors are grossly overpaid.
This was sustainable however as long as they remained worshipped and adored by the general public. As long as their names generated income in excess of their cost.
But they betrayed the public trust. Declared themselves superior to their fans. Insulted, denigrated and defamed anyone with a contrary opinion. Over reached by forcing their political beliefs on the public and schilling for Hillary then actively decrying Trump and his supporters.
The backlash was felt in the declining box office.
Another factor is children and teens today aren't dependant on the television for entertainment. Traditional celebrities are finding their fan bases declining and their appeal minimal.
The result is that they are no longer in the same unassailable position they were in a decade ago or for the last century.

Weinstein is the canary in the coal mine. He is the most prominant but far from the last predator in that sordid cesspit.
Once Hollywood realizes they are no longer invulnerable and despite the consensus that fans don't matter, in fact their whole industry is built upon that mindless infatuation. They will start wearing red hats and chanting GO Back. It will still take some time though. Hollywood is old and set in its ways. But like all converged institutions its doomed. And when it tries to change course avoiding the cliff will be inevitable.

Once the Hollywood bubble in punctured the NFL will fall in line. They may think themselves strong and a prestige brand but compared to Hollywood they are small fish.

It's taken a generation or so for these alternate forms to be felt by a majority, they started small and slow but finallly the avalanche which started years ago it changing the landscape. Good times.
