    It took the French Revolution ten years (1789-1799) to go from an idealistic fight for freedom to the one-man rule of Napoleon, but these are fast-moving times and the #MeToo movement has gone from the necessary correction of monsters like Harvey Weinstein to an all-out assault on the rule of law and hatred of the entire male sex in about eighteen months. (Well, it was men who came up with the Magna Carta.) Think I'm exaggerating? How about the nauseating misandry of the senator from Hawaii, Mazie Hirono? Not only, in the eyes of Ms. Hirono, is Brett Kavanaugh automatically...

    With sexual harassment in the news in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, is it really a good time to hold a political fundraiser for someone who used his position of power to gain sexual advantage from the wife of someone who once ran his political campaign? Movie star Reese Witherspoon held a political fundraiser on Friday at her home for the gubernatorial campaign of California Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom, who admitted to an affair in 2007 with the wife of the campaign manager for his election as San Francisco mayor. Witherspoon recently complained about a sexual assault (see...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Vegas oddsmakers have set the over/under on its survival at 13-1/2 days. – Donald Trump’s star – which has been destroyed nutjob Democrats twice since 2016, has been restored once again on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Workers reset the star on Saturday in the face of a vote by the West Hollywood City Council in early August to have the star permanently removed. The Walk of Fame, however, is administered by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, whose President, Leron Gubler, had this to say about the matter: “Any star, which is...

    Yes it's true....Harvey Weinstein, Morgan Freeman, Barack Hussein Obama and, yes, add Hillary Clinton are for certain, birds of a feather that flock and belong together in prison. Can you imagine that "Sex Predaters", Weinstein & Morgan were abusing and using women without their consent for their weird sex escapades while they were financing and shouting out to Americans to support and elect both Obama and Clinton as POTUS. Clinton and soon, Obama will have been found to have committed worse crimes against the people and nation of the United States of America. If you don't think so...just just tuned...

    Twentieth Century Fox was just days away from locking picture on “The Predator” when an urgent note came in: Delete the scene featuring Steven Wilder Striegel. Striegel, 47, didn’t have a big role in his longtime friend Shane Black’s reboot of the sci-fi thriller — just a three-page scene shared with actress Olivia Munn. But last month, Munn learned that Striegel is a registered sex offender who pleaded guilty in 2010 after facing allegations that he attempted to lure a 14-year-old female into a sexual relationship via the internet. When Munn shared the information with Fox on Aug. 15, studio...

    On Monday Meet The Press host Chuck Todd challenged the media to embrace what most of them are already embracing and in effect become part of the "resistance"  by urging them to "stop complaining---and start fighting back." Only a day later, Fox News host Tucker Carlson challenged Todd to pause "fighting back" long enough to explain what he knew about the NBC coverup of the Harvey Weinstein story.

    President Trump on Tuesday once again suggested NBC News' broadcast license should be revoked, this time because of the network's handling of Ronan Farrow's Harvey Weinstein exposé. @real Donald Trump Trump alluded to recent accusations from a producer that the network tried to kill Farrow's investigation into Harvey Weinstein's sexual misconduct. Farrow ultimately published the piece at The New Yorker. NBC News Chairman Andrew Lack has sent out a memo to staff arguing that Farrow's reporting was not ready to broadcast last year, but Farrow is taking issue with this version of events, saying that the network tried to stop...

    The producer who worked alongside Ronan Farrow at NBC News on his Harvey Weinstein investigation quit in protest earlier this month. Rich McHugh tendered his resignation on Friday, Aug. 17, a year to the day that the Weinstein story left with Farrow. Since then, Farrow has won a Pulitzer Prize for a series of articles that revealed allegations of sexual harassment and assault—and questions have lingered about why the network gave up on the story that helped launch the #MeToo movement. NBC News has long insisted the Weinstein exposé wasn’t ready to run on air or online, contrary to Farrow’s...

    A prominent law firm that formerly represented Harvey Weinstein handed over a $25,000 check to Gov. Andrew Cuomo‘s campaign six days before the governor called off a probe into the handling of sexual misconduct allegations against the disgraced movie mogul, public records show. The hefty contribution from Manhattan firm Boies Schiller & Flexner came on June 20, according to records on the state Board of Elections website. Less than a week later, Cuomo called for a six-month halt of state Attorney General Barbara Underwood’s investigation into Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance for deciding not to prosecute Weinstein for a 2015 groping...

    Rose McGowan further distanced herself from Asia Argento in the wake of sexual assault allegations waged against the actress-director. McGowan released a lengthy statement on Monday, detailing how she discovered that Argento had reportedly paid off actor Jimmy Bennett, who claims Argento assaulted him when he was 17 (she was 37). McGowan says her partner, Rain Dove, told her that Argento admitted to sleeping with Bennet. Argento also allegedly told Dove that she had been receiving “unsolicited” nude photos of Jimmy since he was 12 years old, but had not taken action to stop Bennett from sending more. The text...

Mr. Turnbull was able to survive a challenge from Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton winning 48-35 in the caucus meeting. A win for Turnbull but a narrow one in the context of...

    The Italian actress and director Asia Argento was among the first women in the movie business to publicly accuse the producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault. She became a leading figure in the #MeToo movement. Her boyfriend, the culinary television star Anthony Bourdain, eagerly joined the fight. But in the months that followed her revelations about Mr. Weinstein last October, Ms. Argento quietly arranged to pay $380,000 to her own accuser: Jimmy Bennett, a young actor and rock musician who said she had sexually assaulted him in a California hotel room years earlier, when he was only two months past...

    CONCORD, N.H. – Former President Bill Clinton’s name no longer adorns the Democratic Party’s major fall fundraising dinner in the state that made him “the comeback kid” and launched him on the road to the White House. The New Hampshire state party announced Tuesday that their annual Kennedy-Clinton Dinner will now be known as the Eleanor Roosevelt Dinner, in honor of the famous first lady who went on to serve as the first U.S. delegate to the United Nations. "We are proud to honor Eleanor Roosevelt, a woman revered around the world for her bold leadership and tireless efforts to...

    A California Democrat who resigned last year amid sexual misconduct allegations — including that he allegedly masturbated in front of a female lobbyist — has transferred more than $1 million into a lieutenant governor committee account, according to a campaign finance report filed Tuesday. The filing suggests that former state Assemblyman Matt Dababneh, 37, a Democrat who represented Woodland Hills, could be plotting a political comeback, the Sacramento Bee reported. **SNIP** Another woman, Jessica Yas Barker, said in December that she quit her job at a congressman’s office because of Dababneh’s frequent comments about her appearance, including advice that she...

    With the allegations of sexual harassment leveled against Miramax co-founder Harvey Weinstein floating about, we thought it might be of interest to remind TruthRevolt readers that the Hollywood mogul has strongly defended Roman Polanski, the film director who fled the country and never returned after raping a 13-year-old girl in 1977. Polanski ruined this girl’s life yet continued getting rich off of his films and has bathed in the praise of his Hollywood comrades for the last 40+ years. But in 2009, Polanski found himself in a bit of trouble in Switzerland. He was arrested on his way to accept...

Cosby has been accused of sexual assault by as many as 60 women, a few of which testified at the emotional hearing. Polanski has been on the lam for 40...

    In a wide-ranging interview published more than a month after his death, celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain slammed the Clintons for the way they “dismantled, destroyed, and shamelessly discredited” the multiple women who accused former President Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct. Mr. Bourdain, who committed suicide in June, sat down with journalist Maria Bustillos from the magazine Popula for a February interview that was first published on Sunday. “Bill Clinton, look, the bimbo eruptions — it was [expletive] monstrous,” he said. “That would not have flown today. A piece of [expletive]. Entitled, rapey, gropey, grabby, disgusting, and the way that he...
