Hollywood’s Sexual Predators

It has long become an accepted part and parcel of the world of Hollywood that morality, ethics, and integrity are non-existent. While it is nothing new, the perversity has flourished quite brazenly. Errol Flynn and his entourage were known sexual predators. Then the mafia came in with Frank Sinatra. It’s easy to spot today, all we need do is look at the unraveling of Brittany Spears or Miley Cyrus to know that their behavior is reactive to the darkness that others spurred.

But I fear, that the darkness, the pedophilia, is far worse than we can imagine. It is thought that these stars have been subjected to such perversity that they can never come forward lest the entire cadre of insects are unleashed from Pandora’s Box. It is a form of blackmail. And it has been cited in nearly every large sexual scandal in history

The Franklin Sandal of the 1980’s that implicated the Bush’s was later determined to be simply lies by wayward children. The UK sexual scandal that is still unraveling from the 1980’s involving the Savile ring 37 years later and nothing. It implicates Hollywood, Entertainers, Sports Figures, Politicians, and just about every person within the elite of uber wealth. But no one goes to jail.

As one pundit suggested, it isn’t about money, it is about Power. But it is also about boredom, the boredom of normalcy and boundaries.

Hollywooders make their living ‘pretending’, and in this reality of perversity, they pretend it is okay.  Jennifer Lawrence recently made an impassioned speech in response to the Harvey Weinstein scandal to an audience of feminists about how she was treated like meat having to pose naked for a producer and told to lose weight. However, she failed to add that she voluntarily went on to pose nude for Playboy. And that was okay?  She has no boundaries and doesn’t see the hypocrisy.

I have witnessed people who used to be close fall into this spiral of boundary boredom. Ultimately, it has the power to eat the very soul of a person. I had a friend in high school who decided to get into modeling and later described playing Russian Roulette at parties…

The suicide rate of porn actresses, of Actor’s children, of Actors in general far exceeds any national average. They aren’t victims of war, but they are victims of sexual perversity. And yet, no one is punished. Ever. Roman Polanski is banished from the US but actors and actresses continue to laud his ‘genius’. And so they protect and enable the behavior, the non-consequence of perverse deeds.

In the world outside of Hollywood, the hypocrisy is the fact that a woman only needs to point a finger and ‘j’accuse’ and the man is immediately arrested and put in jail. It is probably the only crime wherein the man is guilty until proven innocent – except – in Hollywood.

Bill Clinton’s escapades with Epstein. Epstein flew in planeloads of girls and boys for pleasure slaves. This is ‘their normal life’. There are no boundaries. It has become a free-for-all wherein victims don’t want to say anything because the victims will be the ones punished.   That is how the Franklin scandal was resolved. And it is the blackmail used to hush scores of women and men still today.

Too often men and women don’t realize or simply don’t care that the ‘simple pornography’ they witness may involve a child, 14, 15… Its reality is Hollywood. It’s like watching a war ‘movie’, it isn’t really real, so therefore no one is really hurt. At least that’s the argument. Even therapists are aboard the ‘little porn’ concept, “What harm does it do…?”

Oddly, the same therapist might make the statement that marijuana leads to hard drugs, while negating the effects of porn claiming that a little porn is healthy. Logic is upside down and topsy-turvy and when a therapist approves, it is a green light to anything goes.

Mental deception. If a physician prescribes a person opiates ongoing for 2-3 years, then it is okay because it was approved by – a physician, and he’s not a dealer. I’ve heard that justification for all kinds of drugs including speed and watched people I know implode.

Hollywood has become it’s own country. They have their own set of rules, morality and ethics. They have their own laws, and police and justice. Meaning – they have – none. And out system allowed this to evolve from the muck and mire of the proverbial Swamp.   Because, in ‘reality’,

Hollywood is a part of The Swamp. They feed it. They support it. And they feel entitled to it. There is no remorse or guilt or shame, there is only arrogant justification. How can there be anything else if there are no boundaries and no consequence?

Weinstein – Sexual Predators

It’s interesting that these women who have stepped out of the closet after 30+ years are labeled heroes for finally exposing Weinstein’s sexual predatory actions. It is equally interesting who is claiming to have ‘no knowledge’ of any of his purported indiscretions. Hollywood is a community, like Peyton Place, where everyone knows everything about everybody. The fact that this ‘community’ aided and abetted, enabled and supported the illegal activity of Weinstein is rather significant.

It is reported that his contract had a clause regarding sexual harassment, apparently numerous women were paid off over the course of decades. The Hollywood couch has long been a part of the package. And it didn’t extend to just attractive women, but men and boys as well.   This is – their community.

Not only did these ten women aid Weinstein’s perversity, but his company and Directors as well – Robert Weinstein, Lance Maerov, Richard Koenigsberg and Tarak Ben Ammar.   They turned a blind eye, cut the checks, and shrugged it off. To make the claim that they are ‘utterly shocked by the allegations’, is quite sad. Why is this different than sex trafficking?

Sex trafficking: when someone uses coercion to cause a commercial sex act. A commercial sex act is when a person receives something in exchange – like an Oscar, a role in a movie…

When looking at various historical sexual predatory scandals, Hollywood would seem to be at the forefront of many accusations; Franklin Scandal, UN Scandal, British Scandals – Jimmy Savile, a scandal that has sat on the books now for nearly 40 years… Bill Clinton and Jeffrey Epstein?

The story is sensationalized, money is exchanged, private discussions, the story is quashed, time passes, everyone forgets, the victims become the bad guy, and history is rewritten.   Over and over again.

In the ‘real world’, aiding and abetting a criminal – is a crime. But Hollywood has set themselves above the law – above education – and above morality. They represent tyranny. They rewrite our history to conform to an agenda, an ideology that suits their perverse humor. Their power has superseded city, state and federal government.

Our acceptance has become so lax that the sex/porn/enslavement industry has surpassed the drug trade. On the low side, it is estimated that the industry nets $150 billion tax free per year. There is no real way to know the finances given it isn’t a measured business reporting profits to the IRS…

I’ve listened to friends who justify their porn as not hurting anyone, just a natural part of human sexuality.   But of course, it is hugely false, it is a rationale that has even been supported by therapists. How small – is what created how big.

The problem that has evolved is how do you squash an industry that makes ten times more Net Income than the largest company in the world – Walmart? Pornography was legalized in the US under the statute of ‘free speech’ and consensual adults. But apparently, that wasn’t good enough, the simple porn became blasé, and the demand for illegal pedophile and forced slavery became the appetite.

And the industry flourished. Sting operations continue, a few gang members and pimps go to jail, but the real CEO’s remain untouched. Weinstein has flown the coup taking a private jet to an unknown destination under the pretext of registering into a clinic for sex addiction.   Given charges could be filed, it would seem he has become simply another cog in the mechanization of the industry. The story will die and history rewritten.

Melania’s Heels: Frontpage Story

Melania Trump’s heels garnered more world headlines than most any other story… It was then apparently followed up with a story in The Telegraph, by a woman, about why women don’t like her. The crux of the story was that she is too beautiful, too smart, and too wealthy, and chooses to not dress in a frumpy, utilitarian style.

Well gee, that makes great fodder for not liking someone…   Actually, what that reveals is more than a bit of the ancient attribute of ‘jealousy’.   The writer goes on to further find disgust with Melania because why would someone as suave as her marry – Trump? So now, her choice of husband’s is root cause to hate the woman.

OUCH!

Personally, I find her amazing. Not necessarily because she is beautiful and smart and suave, although she is, but because she can stand up to such base, ugly rhetoric and still hold her head high, like her heels, not bend to their level of mediocrity, and be exactly who she is despite the tacky whacks from all the gene pool of Lizzie Borden.

The media has seen fit to take her son down without mercy, to take her down without grace, and to take our President down without integrity. The reflection is then – not on the individuals – but on a classless journalist and parent media organization.

In this context, class is not a measurement of money, it is a measurement of honor and decency. Melania hasn’t bashed the media, she hasn’t raged back, she hasn’t even attempted a self righteous remark of indignation. She makes the Kathy Griffins of the world look trashy, and perhaps that is why they froth with slanderous commentaries. A pathetic ploy of vengeance their response is rooted in their own jealousy for not having her grace.

I suppose many women embraced Hillary and her pant suits because she wasn’t a threat to their Femme Fatale self esteem.   She too is smart, but in a very different way. And it was that very antagonistic froth that turned so many other women away despite her intellect.

A frenzy of focus on Melania’s shoes has brought out the psychoanalysis of what they represent – according to The New York Times writer:   clichéd femininity, decorative, impractical, expensive, and elitist. Gee willikers!   One would think she was the only woman left on earth that wore high heels. One would think this “Fashion Writer” had a PhD in Psychology. Rarely, if ever, have we heard the media making such an obtuse commentary about any other First Lady’s choice of clothing – because they would then be branded as ‘sexist’, intolerant, derogatory, and racist.

The New York Times went so far as to say that the shoes represented everything they hate about Trump.

Imagine.

Perhaps the woman writing the article feels that she is somehow the judge and ruler of worldly fashion, an icon of what she thinks women the world over should wear?   I am reminded of Heath Ledger. It is theorized that when he played the role of The Joker, he became – The Joker. To such an extent that the evil that was The Joker, became Heath Ledger. Sometimes, I think that is exactly what has happened to many within Hollywood, they play a role, and suddenly they think they are the world’s aficionados.

Refugees vs Veterans: A Cost Analysis

Over 4 million veterans are on disability… They are eligible to receive ‘as much as’ $3000 per month for their disability and medical care – max $36,000 per year. Every year more than 8,000 veterans commit suicide.   They are injured, they are traumatized, and they are left to die in waiting rooms at VA Hospitals that are rife with corruption.

The average cost per household of Middle Eastern refugees is about $258,000 over five years, or $51,600 per year. More than 95% of refugees are on welfare receiving free housing, medical care, food, and a stipend after that five year period.  

Even more absurd. It costs the US 12 times in $$$$ what it would cost to provide the exact same services for the refugee were they to resettle in another Middle Eastern country. That means the cost could be reduced to $4300 per year for a household if we simply let them stay where they speak the same language, have the same customs, share in the same morality, ethics and belief system.

This ludicrous solution that we support is so far removed from logic and reality, no one wants to actually analyze the facts and figures.

A conservative estimate states that the US spends about $1 billion per year on refugees. If we continued to provide for all those refugees, albeit in their own region, we would save about $920million ‘per year’ which could be diverted to our Veterans and no one would notice. Except our veterans…of course.

What these numbers do not reflect are the subjective costs. For example, veterans would not be denied jobs that were allocated to refugees. Veterans would not be so reliant on disability if they could have a worthwhile job that was re-allocated to refugees. Crime costs to society.   Education costs?  The dollar savings amass!

And yet, and still, the press and the media continue to harp about the ‘poor refugees’ and the ‘bad veterans’.   Why?

Because the media has an alternate objective. A refugee portrayed as a victim of our military is more entertainment than a veteran who has given his very life and being. It’s like a shell game.   Find the truth under the shell… but not before we take all your money…

They prey on the innocence of youth. They prey on falsification of facts. They prey on the subversion of facts. And they have an outlet that can reach millions – with partial truths, half truths and even out-right lies.

Hollywood dives for these games because that’s what Hollywood does! They act for money! They pretend. They are driven by one and only one God – Money. And the only reason people buy it is because the actors have become that much more adept – at their craft – pretending!   For $$$$$.

The stage, the play, the act, wasn’t always quite so subversive. While their heritage is “The Court Jester”, a step above the poison testers and a step below the prostitutes, today they seem to have created an elitist persona for themselves elevating their prowess to realms of godlike proportions.

Personally, I still see the Court Jester and marvel how so many Hollywooders are self imposed experts in such industries that would normally require PhD status and decades of experience.   They provide ‘expert testimony’ for such scientific theories that are normally relegated to ‘scientists’, and have opinions about everything that apparently earn them prime time news coverage, prime placement in the media, and commentary sections that utilize their ‘expertise’ to defend an intellectual theory… even if their claim to education fame is a GED High School Diploma!

Sadly, to me, they still remain, The Court Jester.

What’s even more disconcerting is that these people – know they have no education – know they have no expertise – know they have no knowledge or wisdom – and still find great victory in – pretending…

 

 

Comedians Want Free Speech?

Bill Maher, Kathy Griffin, and a host of other ‘comedians’ believe they should be given special privileges to offend, malign, and slander. But of course, those privileges should not extend to anyone else. Why? Because they are elitist. They are ‘special’.   Because they ‘deserve’ to be immune. Kathy Griffin came out publically after berating the President, maligning him, and then implying she was ISIS beheading him, and cried because Trump was a bully…

So how would this notion of entitlement play out?

I imagine we would suddenly have a plethora of people claiming they are comedians when charged with lible and slander in court. “It was a joke…” Much like the ‘Twinkie Defense”. The Twinkie made me do it.   Now it would be “Can’t you take a joke?” Everyone jokes a bit, does that mean everyone is really a comedian?

According to various sources, the definition of comedian is: “A person who makes people laugh by telling jokes and acting foolish for an audience.” Charlie Chaplin was an amazing comedian. Then there was Abbott and Costello, Sid Caesar, Dom DeLuise, and thousands more. What made them funny was not how they maligned and slandered other people, but how they made their own character the brunt of comedy.

Comedy was about making fun of one self.

I’m not sure when it became a gun show with everyone else the target, but too often that comes across as simply arrogant and petty.   I have walked out on a few supposed comedians because they were all about pointing a finger, all about look at that stupid person, instead of poking fun at their own errs in life.

It is actually the same in church. When a Preacher starts by pointing a finger and railing on about how sinful the congregation is, people start to shift, lose focus, and their thoughts will typically go to – “Well you are too…”   By contrast, when a Preacher creates his sermon around his own perils and hiccups, people are more likely to relate and take a deeper look into themselves.  It is reflective instead of accusatory.

This bizarre entitlement of speech is highlighted in many liberal newspapers as well. The Washington Post and New York Times went so far as to create tag lines claiming they were the Truth, they were the only source for real Truth. And yet, their Headlines are riddled with defaming our President. That’s not Truth, that is defamatory.  Finding an article that is positive, or unbiased, – ever – is like “Where’s Waldo”. There might be one, but it takes a lot of detailed eyes to find it within the plethora of look-alikes.

Another notable advocate of free speech is Reza Aslan who was recently fired from CNN for his Twitter tirades in which he liberally defamed and cussed various politicians and Trump.

While The Freedom of Speech is a Constitutional right, there are limitations that seem to be ignored, including :

“Libel,  slander, obscenity, pornography, sedition, incitement, fighting words, classified information, copyright violation, trade secrets, non-disclosure agreements, right to privacy, right to be forgotten, public security and perjury.”

Fighting Words? The legal definition has morphed since it was first introduced making cuss words permissible. Incitement? I imagine holding a decapitated head of our President is most definitely a form of incitement… I imagine demanding someone be ‘raped’ or ‘shot’ is most definitely a form of incitement and clearly crosses the line of legality – but also ethics and morality.

Bottom line. Many in society seem to have lost the concept of integrity, defined as having strong moral values and honesty. Everyone believes they are honest, but moral values are bit more subjective. So I thought I’d see how the New York Times might see this.

According to an article published in 2015 by The New York Times, morality is subject to relativism and cultural differences. Which basically means that it is completely up for grabs and there are little, or few, absolutes.

In essence, society has broken down into an ‘anything goes’ without boundaries of ethics, moralities or even legal absolutes. And in that mantra, entitlement abounds.  And so we are left with a bizarre concept that comedians be given special rights to malign, slander and incite hatred…, newspapers be allowed to malign and incite hatred, and boundaries are simply a puritan ideology of the past.

Trump Tax Returns… Yawn

This whole tax return fiasco is rather mundane and would be considered a yawn except that Hollywooders feel obligated to contribute, fund and voice their witty opinions with regard to Trump’s tax returns.  

I don’t know, why don’t we just demand that every Hollywood elitist making over a million release their tax returns, and offshore account status? Maybe we should require all tax haven countries to release said data? Because, we’re paying their salaries, so we should have a right to know all their private data – right?

There is NO law that mandates any presidential candidate release their tax return. And it is a fairly nouveau concept that was initiated by of all people – Nixon, but it wasn’t voluntary, it came about as a result of the Watergate debacle as well as Agnew’s mess of bribery and fraud.

Reagan released one year and claimed it was an invasion of privacy. Gerald Ford didn’t release anything. And Bush and Cheney released partial pieces and synopses, although Bush’s showed heavy charitable contributions – upwards of 62%. The Clinton’s were vague, given they had numerous safe havens, the tax returns were not investigated.

However, what has been consistent with the Obama’s and Clinton’s is the vast wealth accumulated just prior, during and after their elections that eludes to the possibility of hidden or havened or manipulated reports of true income and assets. Lest we forget the bemoaning of Hillarygate as she claimed they were broke leaving the White House only to magically buy multi-million dollar properties and lavish in the bourgoise comfort of a sudden massive accumulation of wealth. Of course, we now know much was at the sweet bequest of the Saudi regime.

The major difference is that Trump is coming into the White House with massive wealth and thus his greed factor is considerably less motivated – for him, it is all about ‘legacy’.   Not the monetary legacy that is so prevalent among the mindset of Liberals, but the legacy of change and actually making things ‘better’. The historical legacy. And in that – privacy.

Hollywood should take note and comply with the law.   If they want to change the law, then we can discuss that option, but at this point they are whistling Dixie.   As I recall, Obama was asked to release his transcripts from college, which he adamantly refused to do despite the consensus that he had falsified his admissions, his source of ‘scholarship funding’, and his prowess as a student.

Alas, the Debra’s of the world don’t seem to think that is important. It is important to acknowledge that after Mz. Debra’s fame in the Will and Grace series, she has been ordained within a number of failed campaigns before her current role of sitting on the sidelines.

Bottom line, Messing is allowed her ‘opinion’, but so is everyone else that may or may not agree with her. The difference is that conservatives don’t tend to claim their opinion is the only one – and everyone else is an idiot or deplorable or uneducated or just stupid per the er, Amy Schumer intellectuals.

So while the whole tax return issue is interesting, privacy does prevail. Still, it would be interesting if we had access to all of the Hollywooder’s tax returns so that we could know if they are paying their fair share while we support their livelihood…and if they actually support charity to any extent, and if they are hiding income in offshore accounts because well, they don’t want to actually ‘pay taxes’ they just want to talk about – everyone else.
