New documentary exposes Hollywood man-boy pedophile ring

An Open Secret

Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy in Media reports that An Open Secret, a new explosive documentary on Hollywood pedophiles opened on Friday night, July 3, 2015, at the Cinema Village at 22 East 12th Street in New York City. On July 17, the film will open in Los Angeles at Laemmle’s Music Hall in Beverly Hills.

Directed by Amy Berg, An Open Secret exposes how pedophiles operate in Hollywood and cover up their crimes. Berg’s 2006 documentary on the Catholic Church’s cover-up of pedophilia/pederasty, Deliver Us from Evil, was nominated for an Oscar.

The Hollywood Reporter describes the film as “A sober look at…the sexual exploitation of teenage boys in the entertainment industry by the older men who can make or break their careers…. [W]ith any luck it will encourage other victims to speak up, and enlighten the parents of showbiz aspirants about the industry’s dangers.”

Several journalists are included in the film. One journalist said his story documenting the sexual crimes committed by top Hollywood figures was killed, that is, censored.

Even more shocking, director Berg said she could not find any company willing to distribute her film until Rocky Mountain Pictures, the distributor behind such ground-breaking conservative-oriented documentaries as Obama 2016, stepped up to make sure this important film gets released in various cities this summer. Vesuvio Entertainment is helping with distribution of the film.

The film is rated R, meaning those under 17 must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian. It includes interviews with victims and identifies by name those who have been caught, prosecuted and convicted for sexual abuse.

The film identifies a pedophile ring led by a convicted sex offender named Marc Collins-Rector, who had ties to the rich and famous in Hollywood. Collins-Rector established an Internet-based TV company called Digital Entertainment Network (DEN).

DEN’s first project, Chad’s World, was described by the Los Angeles Times as centering “on a 15-year-old from Michigan who questions his sexual orientation and ultimately flees his town’s intolerance to move in with a gay couple in a California mansion.” This and other questionable Digital Entertainment Network projects are discussed in the Berg film.

Digital Entainment Network’s investors reportedly included movie director Bryan Singer, David Geffen and Arianna Huffington’s homosexual ex-husband Michael Huffington.

David Geffen is the openly homosexual co-founder, with director Steven Spielberg, of DreamWorks Studios. In an interview with Vanity Fair, former Hollywood powerhouse Michael Ovitz identified Geffen as the demagogic leader of a shadowy cabal in Hollywood which Ovitz calls the Gay Mafia. (See “The Gay Mafia and America’s aggressive homosexual agenda“)

Bryan Singer is the openly bisexual director of the X-Men blockbusters who had been sued 3 times for sexual misconduct:

  1. In 1997, a 14-year-old extra accused Singer of asking him and other minors to film a shower scene in the nude for the film Apt Pupil. A lawsuit was filed but dismissed for insufficient evidence.
  2. In April 2014, Singer was accused in a civil lawsuit of having drugged and raped a minor — 17-year-old actor and model Michael Egan — in Hawaii and Los Angeles in the late 1990s. Four months later, Egan withdrew his lawsuit after Singer’s attorney presented evidence that neither Singer nor Egan were in Hawaii at the time.
  3. In May 2014, attorney Jeff Herman filed a lawsuit on behalf of an anonymous British man against Singer and producer Gary Goddard for sexually assaulting “John Doe No. 117″ when the latter was a minor while in London for the premiere of Superman Returns. 2 months later, the charge against Singer was dismissed, at the accuser’s request, but the case against Goddard remains active.

According to The Daily Beast, Singer is infamous for his “Twink” pool parties, described by an attendee as wild nights of no clothes and lots of alcohol. Among homosexuals, the word “twink” describes a uniquely disposable kind of young gay man: Hairless, guileless, witless. The term’s namesake is Twinkie, a junk food containing shiny packaging, a sweet taste, and zero nutritional value. “Twinks” can be bussed into parties, thrown into pools, put into a tiny Speedo—or no Speedo at all—and ornamentally placed around the water’s edge like living, breathing, giggling statuary.

Birds nest in the strangest places

Have you ever seen a baby blue jay?

I had never, until this spring.

A couple of months ago, I discovered that the blue jays who frequent our garden had built a nest, of all places, on top of a ladder propped in a corner against our house.

Mommy blue jay patiently hatched her eggs. Two weeks ago, I took this picture of a fledgling, whom I named Samson, sitting in the nest.

The Write Stuff – Secret #2: Villains

image

In our last installment, we examined the first of nine secret storytelling elements that work like magic to hook your audience and all but guarantee a successful novel or movie.

That first element was Undeserved Misfortune. Our second element is closely related to the first and it is, drum roll please, the Villain. A properly developed villain will automatically create Undeserved Misfortune. Remember our example Undeserved Misfortune from the movie Ghost? Well, the multiple examples of Undeserved Misfortune from Ghost were created from a single source: the Villains. One of the villains actually murdered Patrick Swayze, and then the second villain deepened the evil by attempting to seduce Demi Moore and embezzle a large sum of money.

With a properly developed villain, it is impossible NOT to have Undeserved Misfortune.

Here’s a secret known to less than five people in the entire world: the villain is more important than the hero. Yes, it’s true. Remember that big budget Lone Ranger movie that flopped a couple of years ago? Sure, it was a lousy movie, but a lot of lousy movies become hits (as long as they contain these elements we are discussing).

The reason why The Lone Ranger movie flopped comes down to three primary reasons, and one of them is the poorly conceived villain. The Lone Ranger and Tonto are great heroes. Everyone knows them. But here’s a quick quiz: how many Lone Ranger villains can you name? I can’t think of any, can you?

Now how many Batman villains can you name? (Penguin, Riddler, Catwoman, the Joker, etc.) How many Spiderman villains can you name? (Kingpin, Dr. Octopus, etc.) Heroes are made by their villains, not the other way around. The Lone Ranger does not contain any iconic villains and the villains in the movie were horribly drawn.

Think about it. Who is James Bond without Rosa Klebb, Oddjob, Goldfinger, Blofeld, and the others. Who’s Dorothy without the Wicked Witch? Who’s Sherlock Holmes without Moriarty or the Hound of the Baskervilles? Westerns are out of favor today, not because they’re out of style, but because dull-thinking leftists have made it taboo to show Indians as villains, despite the fact that many of them were. If the villain were brought back to the western, the people would come.

Before Uma Abedin and Valerie Jarrett, there was ... Rosa Klebb!

Audiences love a great villain, whether in movies, books, sports (Sonny Liston, Muhammed Ali, Andre the Giant, the Yankees), or real life (Bonnie and Clyde, Dillinger, Noriega, Qhadafi, Bin Laden). Villains are so important when it comes to manipulating human emotion, that within minutes of every false flag terror event (Boston, Sandy Hook) or political hit (JFK, RFK), the media is crowing nonstop about the alleged villain! Have you ever wondered how the media has complete biographies and dossiers about these made-up villains before the crime scene has even been investigated? The spooks who prepare the bios for these patsies would make excellent Hollywood screenwriters. Heck, maybe they are Hollywood screenwriters.

Your villain has to be concrete, but he/she does not have to be a human. Your villain can be a shark (Jaws), the elements (Twister, A Perfect Storm), the woods (The Blair Witch Project), a computer (Hal from 2001), etc.

Your hero can even be a villain (The Godfather, Scarface), as long there’s an even worse villain for the audience to root against.

If you’re writing a mystery, the villain is often left hidden until the end of the story. If that’s the case, you’ll have to present secondary villains to create obstacles for the hero: the crusty police commissioner, the nosy reporter, the arrogant suspect who appears to be guilty, etc.

The tone of the villain has to suit the tone of your story. You can’t have a costumed super-villain in a family drama, nor a family-type villain in a superhero story.

Villains can fall into types. The Holy Fool is a villain used in James Bond and superhero type stories. These are characters that plot to take over the world, or pull a grand heist, like Goldfinger, setting off a nuke in Fort Knox.

The Arrogant Cad is a villain often found in romantic comedies and broad comedies. He can be the stuffy suitor for the heroine, or the conceited know-it-all types you see in Rodney Dangerfield type movies.

Hitchcock often used a sort of Genteel Villain, someone who was cultured, educated, and pleasant to the outside world, yet capable of great evil.

The Dumb Bully is a villain seen in teen comedies, such as Biff in Back to the Future.

The better your villain, the better your hero will look when they defeat the villain. It’s also a good idea to bring your villain into the story as early as possible. Your Villain will create Undeserved Misfortune for one of your main characters, thus hooking your audience into the story. They will be unable to stop reading until they see the villain defeated and the Undeserved Misfortune removed or resolved.

How are the villains in your novel?

God Appreciates Creative People

The Great Creator made us in His own image

Why wouldn’t He encourage artists, writers, gardeners, composers, musicians and crafts people?

A word for my many creative friends. The business world often says artists are worthless dreamers, of no value in the scheme of things.

That’s one nasty diagnosis!

But before we give up in despair, let’s get at a 2nd opinion from a Higher Authority:

“Then the Lord said to Moses, “See, I have chosen Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills— to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze, to cut and set stones, to work in wood, and to engage in all kinds of crafts.” – Exodus 31:1-5

NYT refuses Muhammad cartoon but publishes offensive painting of Virgin Mary in elephant dung

Liberals have a special knack for hypocrisy.

After the January 2015 massacre by Muslim jihadists of 12 staffers of the Paris satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, the New York Times was one of several major print media that refused to reprint a Hebdo cartoon of Muhammad.

Charlie Hebdo Muhammad cartoonCartoon of Muhammad on a 2011 cover of Charlie Hebdo. The quote, in English, is “100 lashes if you are not dying of laughter”.

In an email, a NYT spokesperson explained why:

 Under Times standards, we do not normally publish images or other material deliberately intended to offend religious sensibilities. After careful consideration, Times editors decided that describing the cartoons in question would give readers sufficient information to understand today’s story.

Notwithstanding its professed standards of not publishing images that “deliberately intend to offend religious sensibilities,” on May 29, 2015, in a Scott Reyburn article on the sale of Chris Ofili’s controversial painting “The Holy Virgin Mary,” which shows the Virgin Mary clotted with elephant dung against a porn-collage background, the same New York Times saw fit to publish a photograph of the painting that is offensive to Christians, especially Catholics.

Chris Ofili's blasphemous Virgin Mary painting

Ofili’s 1996 painting caused a furor when it was shown at the Brooklyn Museum in October 1999. The 8 ft. painting of a black Virgin Mary encrusted with a lump of elephant dung, surrounded by collaged bottoms from pornographic magazines, outraged religious leaders and then Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, who described the painting as “sick stuff” and tried to close the exhibition by withholding public funds. But Giuliani’s attempt was rejected by a federal judge. The painting was subsequently acquired by Australian entrepreneur David Walsh, who now wants to sell it.

Chris OfiliChristopher Ofili, 46, was born in Manchester, UK, of Nigerian parents. Wikipedia describes him as a “Turner Prize-winning painter who is best known for his paintings incorporating elephant dung.”
