There’s an even darker side to the Harvey Weinstein story

Harvey Weinstein, a Hollywood heavyweight and major Democrat donor stands accused of decades of sexual assault, misconduct, and even several counts of rape.

He produced blockbuster films such as Gangs of New York, Shakespeare in Love, Pulp Fiction, and Good Will Hunting, launching the careers of dozens of Hollywood elites.

And that’s where this story takes a dark turn the media hopes you’ll ignore.

The New Yorker described Weinstein’s actions as “an open secret to many in Hollywood and beyond.”


“Since the establishment of the first studios a century ago, there have been few movie executives as dominant, or as domineering, as Harvey Weinstein.
….
“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, just after Steven Spielberg and right before God.”

But Weinstein was known well beyond Hollywood.

His connections and access to Democrat politicians would make even the most greasy D.C. lobbyist green with envy.

Business Insider reported that since 2000, Weinstein donated nearly $1 million of his own money to Democrats and bundled over $1.4 million — for at whopping total of $2.3 million — for the groups like the Democrat Senatorial Campaign Committee, the DNC, politicians like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, and many more including other candidates.

In 2013 Michelle Obama referred to him as a “wonderful human being” and a “good friend.”

The Clintons also counted Weinstein as a friend.

So close, in fact, that in 2015 they rented a house in the Hamptons next to Weinstein for the summer.

It took Clinton five days to issue a carefully crafted statement condemning Weinstein’s actions.

Yet it only took her eight hours to point the finger at the NRA for the Las Vegas shooter’s actions.

And later when interviewed on CNN issued a weak statement that was even slammed by renowned liberals like Anthony Bourdain, who called it “shameful in its deflection and disingenuousness.”

He went on to say “The Weinstein stories had been out there for years,” and said “victims of Mr. Weinstein’s three decades of predatory behavior are disappointed too.” His girlfriend has accused Weinstein of forcibly performing oral sex on her.

That gets to the dark side of the story…

They knew. They all knew.

And yet everyone willfully ignored or covered up his behavior because they were getting something from him.

Actors and actresses were hoping for fame and fearful of “being crushed.”

Democrat politicians were willing to overlook the “rumors” as long as he kept the cash flowing into their coffers.

And worse yet, news outlets have reportedly buried the story for over a decade.

Sharon Waxford, a former New York Times reporter, claims they buried the story back in 2004 “after intense pressure from Weinstein, which included having Matt Damon and Russell Crowe call” her directly.



Even today, NBC refused to run with NBC News correspondent Ronan Farrow’s interviews of Weinstein’s victims and Farrow wound up publishing it in The New Yorker.

NBC News President Noah Oppenheim claimed the report “wasn’t ready for prime-time.”

Fox News speculates that Oppenheim, who is also a screenwriter, may have had ties to Weinstein’s company, though NBC is refusing to comment.

And earlier this week Twitter suspended the account of actress Rose McGowan after she publicly accused Weinstein of raping her on the social media platform.

This entire story just exposes the Hollywood elite and Democrat Party for the massive hypocrites that they are.

They dare to stand there and condemn Trump like Meryl Streep, saying, “When the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.”

Yet Meryl Streep once referred to Harvey Weinstein as “god” in an acceptance speech and now claims she didn’t know and that she’s “appalled” by the “disgraceful news.”

The cover up exposes the dark side of Hollywood and the Democrat politicians who considered Weinstein a “friend.”

No one should ever let these hypocrites claim the moral high ground again.

  1. He needs to be gone and fired no woman should have to go through what he did to them and rape women so messed up and they told and no one would listen to them .

  2. FRANKLY, I’m SICK to DEATH of hearing “The Elite” this and “The Elite” that. WHO crowned these people “The Elite” anyway? Was it taken to a vote by Congress or by GOD???? Somehow I get the distinct feeling THEY crowned themselves and nobody argued the point. Just becuse I have a college degree like the rest of them (if in fact all of them actually HAVE college degrees), and my family had money, but this certainly never gave ME cause to proclaim that I was an “ELITE”. Rather, thanks to the Consummate Political Corrupted Crook of All Time (HRC), I am a Deplorable and very, very proud of it. SO I IMPLORE every News Media (including Fox News) to STOP, STOP, STOP referring to Hollywood and New Yorkers as “The Elite” I say they are NOT. They are only Elite in their own minds. So Amen — and move over so we Deplorables can MAGA !!!!!!

  3. There has to be more like Weinstein…The producers, actors, comedians and so forth…I’m not a bit surprise about George Clooney…He as been drinking, snorting and smoke marijuana and damaging the women, that he was with…

  4. Nothing will be done to him, he’ll be in the news for awhile and reviled, then he’ll be back in business again buying people and making movies. Just watch and see!

  5. Hollywood, SHALLOW HYPOCRITS ALL, are little more that cheap PROSTITUTES, providing sexual favors, in return for glamor, fame and MONEY! The moral decline in America has been initiate and dominated by the actions of these “Hollywood Elites”, actually Hollywood TRAILER PARK TRASH!

    They would (and DO) sell their souls for fame, fortune and recognition. They are paid to say words written by a collection of writers and editors, spoken and re-spoken until “just right”, which they neither believe nor even understand.

    Hollywood, a world of UTTER MAKE BELIEVE!

  6. Sometimes good things happen after bad ones are exposed. The good thing is that this may have killed the so-called Feminist movement in the U.S. Every woman in Hollywood and in liberal politics who kept it quiet are now wearing a scarlett letter on their forehead.

  7. And THIS is exactly why I trust ANIMALS over HUMANS. Whoever heard of animals forcing sex on humans? (Can’t help remembering those disgusting souveniers from Mexico – another way for HUMAN pigs to make a dirty dime!) But I digress.

    There are many kinds of filthy pigs, and in our human society all must be liars and hypocrites by design. Because we’re not talking ANIMAL pigs here – we’re talking about HUMAN SEXUAL PIGS. As for the Progressive LEFT, its general inherent lack of either a) what works for a successful society and b) their lack of basic ethics, morality or compassion for the victims of these pigs, which includes those who ignore these acts lest they risk their own personal “self-gain”, are pretty much one in the same “problem” – and ALL are DISGUSTING.

    We followers of the philosophy of Ayn Rand (or Ned and the First Reader, or even the Bible) have a pretty good idea what their authors would allow regarding the overall nature of a HUMAN SEXUAL PIG. But I’m not a writer – I’ve just HEARD about it for 75 years. Therefore, may I offer up this one, definitive, extra loud “OINK”.

  8. Harvey Weinstein is not the exception in the Hollywood or the Democrat crowd, he is an example. They all knew and some are trying to keep a low profile now hoping to not be exposed themselves. The ones not involved in this type of conduct are still guilty because of their knowing and now exposing. They prostituted themselves for money. As long as they were now exposed and they could get the money they remained silent. Now they try to appear appalled by his conduct and want to distance themselves because the money will be gone.

  9. I hope we all are taking a few minutes to evaluate our own lives and are working on being holier people. We have to pray for those taking any part of this evil. Yes, he’s terrible and evil but the world has ALLOWED him and his message to influence them rather than looking to JESUS, who is the TRUTH, THE WAY AND THE LIFE. So rather than JUST CRITICIZE, let’s make a holy “moment” and say a prayer for our youth, our leaders, our world. If you haven’t gone to mass, partaken of the sacraments or read scripture or other spiritual material it helps to build your strength for this battle we are in with the devil.

  10. Total depravity. Just another Sodom and Gamorrah. Vile filth. And they want to point fingers at Christians ??? There is a day of reckoning coming. Many are praying for this country and our President every day. God is more powerful than the richest of these vile liars. Totally disgusting, the sexual filth, filthy mouths. Makes my skin crawl. God is more powerful than the richest of these. There will come a time when all the money in the world won’t save you but God can!!! I think Mr Winestein may have come to that point . Disgusting!!! We will all Stand Before God and answer for our actions.

    • Linda, when I watch TV and see one of those individuals from Hollywood bashing President Trump I always wonder if they are being forced into doing this or no job in a movie. I can’t believe that they are so stupid not to know what is going on in the real world and that it affects them too.

  11. I’ve known a few accredited movie and TV actors personally. Taking them each on their
    own face value, they’re just like people. Still, they’re each like politicians, as
    well. I met a United States senator one time, and the guy- in my book- was an
    absolute creep. On the other hand, I graduated from high school, 2 years after
    Harold Hughes. In spite of being a Democrat, “Pack” was irrevocably honest. He
    became governor of Iowa, and later, was encouraaged by Lyndon Johnson to become the
    candidate for United States Senator from Iowa. He won that position in a landslide.
    Enamored at first by Johnson, he shortly decided that Johnson proved himself to be a
    deplorable, lying, two-faced dirtbag. Well, Senator Hughes served in the Senate for
    maybe four or five years. But then, one day, he stood up, and speaking for the
    record, he resigned his position, saying that he could no longer do business with a
    bunch of liars and prostitutes. So much for the integrity of our governing folk,
    eh ?

    • Amen to that…. I’ll stick to being a hard working, church going, stay at home southern family girl… just call me deplorable!! I’m honored and will continue that God will help us take this country back.

    • I LOVED your comment. Here’s mine.

      • Sorry gillyanne, understand where you’re TRYING to come from (animals, etc), but bottom line has to be that Rand is not exactly THE role model. First, as an atheist she obviously has no viable moral compass even if and when she often speaks on religion. And her brand of objectivism is not “christian friendly” if you will. In fact she even said her jewish heritage had no meaning for her so there’s no moral orthodoxy in her self(ish) interest of objectivism. And for you to more or less equate a First reader or the bible with that seems oddly misplaced. No, I’d say Ayn Rand could be one if not the first pioneer progressive liberal feminist and certainly not a role model for conservatives and even conservative ANIMAL OVERS.

    • TO GENE LEWIS —
      I LOVED your story. Here’s mine.

  12. Keep it quiet for number of years. These actress are dumber than a box of rocks. Any time he invited them to his room, and open the door in only in a bathrobe, any normal lady would have hauled ass. These actress had the same chose, but they walk right into room

    • Whiskey, if they had learned a skill that would help them to make a good living they would not have to sell their looks and body which men of that kind take advantage off. I do not blame the women I blame the women who do not warn the want to be stars. Don’t do they have agents??? Do they have female agents??? I am happy to see that this is out in the open and I hope that stars in the making pay attention and protect themselves. Oh, more question where are the feminists???????

      • Hey Elfie, yes they have agents and yes they all knew what they were getting into. It has been a known fact that in Hollywood you become half prostitute in order to make it big. I guarantee Harvey isn’t the only one who did that to women either. There’s many many many more predarors that will end up coming out. Modeling agencies is another place that men took advantage of women. I guarantee it!
        And why are’nt all those nasty women in Hollywood in front of Weinstein’s business wearing their pink pussy hats and protesting him for what he did to women? What a buncha idiot hypocrites. Where’s Madonna, Ashley Judd, Cher, & many other of these liberal HACKS at?

        • Gertrude, you are absolutely correct.
          Couch auditions have been around for about a century so every wannabe actress knew what would most likely happen. Very few were saved that humiliation.
          The rumors of Weinstein were so common that every woman who auditioned for him expected to play the game. They were not molested or raped. They were willing to prostitute themselves for fame and money.

    • Because of greed they wanted that money and they were going to do anything they needed to do to get it. He dangled that carrot of fame over their heads, they wanted it and now they got it. It makes me sick, it’s not like it’s new news anyway. All my life growing up I was always told that out in Hollywood, it’s not who you know, it’s who you blow. In order to be a superstar you have to be Harvey’s prostitute at 1st. Everybody kept their mouth shut because it is quite embarrassing to sell yourself out like that so you can get a bunch of money in your pocket And have people begging for an autograph. I guarantee not many Hollywood people are being asked for autographs nowadays.

  13. The issue with the disrespect for the flag, is fueling the animosity towards NFL-Players, but we must remember that the protesters have the right, to protest! President Trump as much as I love him, has conducted himself, on this subject, as a dictator! I would rather have President Trump as POTUS, showing animosity towards the anarchy, tan Obama, instigating it!

    • They may have the right but that does not make their protests right, especially since their protest message is in the wrong context.

      This tells me those who do not oppose the protests do not understand what the US flag stands for. Each color, each stripe, each star, each of the 13 folds means something special. There is a correct way to handle the flag and a correct way to honorably dispose of the flag.

      • As a person who lost a brother in vietnam, I appreciate your words of support for our military, our country and the FLAG that draps the coffin of any service member. So important to remember how truly free AMERICA is and how little oppression there is because of people who fought and died. There are many avenues to combat oppression. Those truly wanting to make a difference aren’t geandstanding on the NFL fields. Thanks again

    • No, we must remember they are being paid millions of dollars to entertain us, not come out there and spew their hate for the president. Cause that’s all they’re doing now on top of the fact they’re disrespecting the flag & all of our veterans, alive or dead. I can tell you don’t understand what the flag means or you wouldn’t have said what you just said.
      There is no football happening in this house or in any of my friends or families. I bet you’re still tuning in and watching that bulls**t.
      Most of those players are CRIMINALS & THUGZ anyway. All they take in college is communications & Home Ec. Most of them end up in bankruptcy. And then they can go back to fighting poor pit bull dogs.
      The NFL isn’t doing anything about it. The NFL is done, they will never get back their viewers (Fans) that they had. NEVER!!

      • It was bad enough 2 years ago for the Super Bowl halftime show we had to watch beyonce do her cop hating show. If that wasn’t the grossest thing I ever saw. And then last year we all had to sit back and wonder what Lady Gaga was going to do. If the NFL thinks they’re gonna use their liberals again this year for the halftime show to preach to people that voted for trump, they got another thing coming. Most trump supporters are not tuning in and thats 63 million people. HUGE LOSS OF REVENUE

  14. We call ourselves a Christian Nation, and we should be, however, as bad as I don’t like Weinstein’s actions, I can’t help but think about how the Sanhedrin and the Jewish people, wanted to stone Mary Magdalena, Jesus said, “Let the one, without sin, cast the first stone!”

  15. I know that in the current entertainment industry it is hard to find anyone with any moral conscience. Weinstein is really more the norm than the exception. As long as the liberal and depraved minded individuals run the news and entertainment industry we can expect to see many more women being raped and embarrassments occurring. God will make judgments sooner than anyone expects.

    • Mr. Ed……sex sells and I find it very disgusting. They can take a hamburger look sexy, clothing even for children. I better stop because my child reminds me that I still live in the 18 hundred.

      • You’re right of course….sex sells in this world at least. And I am seeing a lot of posts here complaining about presumably elite (above it all) reporting with regard to the Weinstein exposée, including of course Fox News Channel that I find very interesting. FNC has a lot of nerve, some would say balls, even talking about exploitation or otherwise sexualizing women, what with FNC cheesecake exposure of plunging necklines and raised hemlines that distracts from any worthwhile news being reported. One famous radio host whose name I won’t mention here even said he’s likely to turn off FNC because of the skirts halfway up the thigh or higher. Can’t really blame him….I was never one not to appreciate beautiful women, but everything in the right time and place if you will. Don’t think that FNC women don’t know it. When I asked one particular bombshell about that she said “OMG, you have no idea”. But I must also point out that not all FNC women hosts and guests allow themselves to be used that way, so I wonder why any of them allow it at all if they have any standards in personal modesty.

  16. right cut it off and stick it up his a– a guy like this does not deserve any mercy take him to court and bury him of course the left will most likely bury this or try to but why not tell the whole story and get it out and take care of it

  17. I’d like to know why my comments about those who are complicit with scumbags like Weinstein, such as democrats, evidently are being deleted by this site moderator.
    Anybody?

      • Maybe “Renewed Right” doesn’t mean what we thought it did? But I’d really like a moderators (all these site have moderators) explanation. Because if Renewed Right is not (so called) Right after all, I’ll unsubscribe and go where the “right” MEANS right (which is really a relative term because of how the left has moved even farther left). Always wondered why I’m accused of being “right wing” when that used to mean only common sense and truth.

        • Really? So now this site is censoring? I’ll unsubscribe RIGHT NOW!
          I’M SICK OF THESE PPL.LIKE THIS.
          They actually think that they can tell us what we need to know? FREAKING SICKENING

        • Renewed Right editors don’t censor comments. There is a automatic spam filter that occasionally gets overzealous and hides legitimate comments. But most of the time it’s doing its job hiding fake comments about auto-insurance. We do try to post those comments if we see them, but it takes some time.

          Sorry for the inconvenience!

          • First of all, let me start by saying a word of “thanks!” for maintaining and operating this site. It’s very informative, and gives your readers a place to vent frustration, etc.

            Next, I understand how any system might blunder out of some tiny technicality or glitch… they’re only human, you know! LOL

          • I hope that’s true, as you say sir. But I’m not holding my breath….I’d say rather that you’ll have to a better job with your “spam” filters, because I can’t see how anything I said in my comment could have been related to any definition of spam. And with all the animosity and attacks against conservatives and christians these days on alleged (so called ) right leaning or conservative sites and “news” networks such as FNC with their “fair and balanced” reporting that obviously promotes liberalism, aka “progressive democrats”, conservatives really have to sleep with one eye open as it were. Not to mention “fake” comments even here that are clearly not legitimately pro American, moral, christian, or conservative. I’m one who firmly believes such fakers are as bad or worse than LIBERALS WHO SEEK TO AVOID THE DISCIPLINES OF THE TRUTH. Let’s see if this post makes it through your filters.

  18. The Hollyweirdo looney libtard hypocrites definitley knew about the accusations against Weinstein. There was absolutely no way they could not have been aware of at least the rumors. But because he is a liberal, he gets a pass. If he was a conservative, you could bet that it would have come out with the very first rumor three decades ago!

    As I’ve pointed out many times, more than 90% of all prisoners in our jails and prisons are liberals. And criminals protect criminals.

  19. He was Slick Willie’s hero or at least they learned from each other. Given that Moochelle praised him should have had everyone looking at just what a Vile SLEAZE he was. I say that based on these FACTS She was not proud of America till they were STUPID or IGNORANT enough to elect the MORON she married. Shall we examine his Record He murdered4 men in Libya not to upset his Muslim pals, he PARDONED a TRAITOR, while trading 5 TERRORISTS which we are at War( Constitutional declared) with so they could kill more American soldiers for a deserter and TRAITOR who not only left his post but actively sought out the TERRORISTS and gave them info that got his fellow soldiers killed and did not even file charges on him for any of his crimes. He spent 8 years wasting TRILLIONS on his pals FAILED businesses. He freed more criminals than he ever saw to being taken off the street. He is such an Egomaniac that he thinks he is better than the ONE TRUE AND LIVING GOD. So you can see why Obammy liked him he was a fellow SLIMEY SLEAZE BAG. This is also why Moochelle loved him see saw a white version of her husband in Weinstein.

  20. Guys like Harvey Weinstein have used their media power to mold our society and Harvey has chosen violence, while pushing the gay lbgtq agenda and other promiscuous lifestyles.

  21. Harvey Weinstein deserves a jail term for rape so he can serve up his ass for prisoners who can rape him so he knows what if feels like. Pay backs are coming for this scum bag and I hope he gets whats coming his way!

  22. These people don’t care about the “here after ” ! They only care about now and the “green stuff” and of course the “sex” stuff !!!!
    Nothing but a bunch of sick pigs !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Most of these scumbags have to be without any religious belief to justify how power hungry and greedy they truly are. They see nothing wrong with what they see and do and yet know enough about America to know they had better claim to be very religious, worldly wise and sophisticated superiors: that is why they should be giving morality lessons to all of us “mindless masses”.

    • Well, and then there was the cutie about Slick Willy Clinton when he was in his prime
      with his wife covering his butt; and I quote ?
      “what do you get when you cross Bill Clinton with a brood sow ?”
      “Nothing. There’re some things that even a brood sow – just won’t do”.

  23. What can you say about scum of the earth? He’s certainly built up a reputation, hasn’t he? My, oh my! How does he sleep at night knowing how scummy he is?! Well, he has his reward in the here and now, but what about the hereafter? He’d better straighten up his act, or he’ll be very, very sorry later on. You can’t buy a ticket to heaven with money, you know.
