Female lawmakers, staffers and lobbyists speak out on 'pervasive' harassment in California's Capitol

The L.A. Times reports:
A state legislator who was groped by a male lobbyist weeks after she was sworn into office. A legislative staffer-turned-lobbyist who for years would only wear pantsuits in order to project a “business-only” air. A government affairs director who faced inappropriate advances from an associate in full view of male colleagues who seemed oblivious as it happened.

As Hollywood takes a hard look at itself in the wake of the spiraling Harvey Weinstein sexual misconduct scandal, the women of California politics are publicly declaring: Us too.

More than 140 women — including legislators, Capitol staff, political consultants and lobbyists — signed a letter calling out the “pervasive” culture of sexual harassment and mistreatment that plagues their industry.

The signatories include six of 26 women in the Legislature, two retired lawmakers, a Board of Equalization member and officials from the state Democratic and Republican parties.

“As women leaders in politics, in a state that postures itself as a leader in justice and equality, you might assume our experience has been different. It has not,” read the letter, seen by the Los Angeles Times before its publication Tuesday. “Each of us has endured, or witnessed or worked with women who have experienced some form of dehumanizing behavior by men with power in our workplaces.”
Progressive California appears a hostile place for women!

Flashback 2012 : Aaron Sorkin Hangs With Harvey Weinstein and Obama At Weinstein's Connecticut Estate to Tout Womens Rights

The Hartford Courant reports:
It was a different time.

Famed Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein was at the top of his game in August 2012 when he welcomed some of the most famous people in America to his lavish waterfront home in Westport.

The stars came out for a big-dollar fundraiser that featured then-President Barack Obama speaking to a group of about 50 supporters who paid nearly $36,000 per person to attend. The event took place during Obama’s reelection battle against Republican Mitt Romney.

Weinstein’s comments that night about “protecting women’s rights’’ provide a sharp contrast to the widespread allegations of sexual harassment that have been levied against him in recent days by multiple actresses.

Molly Ringwald Recalls Jeffrey Katzenberg Comment in Revealing Essay About Hollywood Harassment

The Hollywood Reporter reports:

In a statement to THR, Katzenberg said, "That Molly Ringwald had to read those words attributed to me and believe I said them is horrifying, mortifying and embarrassing to me."

In an essay for The New Yorker, Molly Ringwald reflected on her own experiences with sexual harassment in Hollywood, including an explicit comment once made by Jeffrey Katzenberg.

"The head of a major studio — and, incidentally, someone who claims himself to be horrified by the Harvey allegations — was quoted as saying, 'I wouldn’t know [Molly Ringwald] if she sat on my face,'" she said of a Movieline article in the 1990s, which included a reported quote from Katzenberg at the end of a paragraph about the song "Molly" by alternative rock group Sponge (included below). "Maybe he was misquoted. If he ever sent a note of apology, it must have gotten lost in the mail."

In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Katzenberg said, "That Molly Ringwald had to read those words attributed to me and believe I said them is horrifying, mortifying and embarrassing to me. Anyone who knows me now or back then knows I do not use language like that as a matter of course, or tolerate it. Ms. Ringwald, 22 years too late, I am deeply, deeply sorry.”

Who Pays What in Taxes?

Walter Williams reports:
Politicians exploit public ignorance. Few areas of public ignorance provide as many opportunities for political demagoguery as taxation. Today some politicians argue that the rich must pay their fair share and label the proposed changes in tax law as tax cuts for the rich. Let’s look at who pays what, with an eye toward attempting to answer this question: Are the rich paying their fair share?

According to the latest IRS data, the payment of income taxes is as follows. The top 1 percent of income earners, those having an adjusted annual gross income of $480,930 or higher, pay about 39 percent of federal income taxes. That means about 892,000 Americans are stuck with paying 39 percent of all federal taxes. The top 10 percent of income earners, those having an adjusted gross income over $138,031, pay about 70.6 percent of federal income taxes ( About 1.7 million Americans, less than 1 percent of our population, pay 70.6 percent of federal income taxes. Is that fair, or do you think they should pay more? By the way, earning $500,000 a year doesn’t make one rich. It’s not even yacht money.

But the fairness question goes further. The bottom 50 percent of income earners, those having an adjusted gross income of $39,275 or less, pay 2.83 percent of federal income taxes. Thirty-seven million tax filers have no tax obligation at all. The Tax Policy Center estimates that 45.5 percent of households will not pay federal income tax this year ( There’s a severe political problem of so many Americans not having any skin in the game. These Americans become natural constituencies for big-spending politicians. After all, if you don’t pay federal taxes, what do you care about big spending? Also, if you don’t pay federal taxes, why should you be happy about a tax cut? What’s in it for you? In fact, you might see tax cuts as threatening your handout programs.

Robert De Niro, Who Calls Trump ‘Low Life,’ Was Client Of Brothel Using Children

USNP reports:
According to court records, journalist John Lichfield, who works for London’s Independent, discovered that the prostitution agency routinely ensnared girls as young as 15, forcing them to have sex with Hollywood’s rich and powerful elite.

Of course the mainstream media did everything they could to cover up for Hollywood favorite Robert De Niro. His regular dealings with the brothel, proved by court documents, received little to no media coverage.

After discovering the court documents, John Lichfield wrote, “Six people are charged with the running of an international prostitution ring, whose call-girls entertained the actor Robert de Niro, the former tennis player, Wojtek Fibak, two senior (but unnamed) French politicians and several Gulf princes. The agency specialised in tricking, or trapping, star-struck teenage girls into selling their bodies with the promise of careers as models or actresses.”

As if that wasn’t bad enough, Robert De Niro is also good friends with sexual predator Harvey Weinstein and remained silent after a tsunami of women came forward with rape and sexual abuse accusations against the Hollywood big shot.
As of late , Robert De Niro feels associating with director Bryan Singer will help his image.
