Sexgate: FBI & NYPD are investigating Harvey Weinstein, who also targeted minors

Up to 30 women have now come forward to make allegations of sexual misconduct and rape against Hollywood mogul and pervert Harvey Weinstein.

The latest is that he had also targeted underage girls.

Yesterday morning (Oct. 12), actress Kate Beckinsale, now 44, posted to Instagram a young picture of herself, accompanied by a statement that Weinstein was lewd to her when she was 17 years old, which makes her at the time a minor:

“I was called to meet Harvey Weinstein at the Savoy Hotel when I was 17. I assumed it would be in a conference room which was very common.When I arrived, reception told me to go to his room. He opened the door in his bathrobe. I was incredibly naive and young and it did not cross my mind that this older, unattractive man would expect me to have any sexual interest in him. After declining alcohol and announcing that I had school in the morning, I left uneasy but unscathed. A few years later, he asked me if he had tried anything with me in that first meeting. I realized he couldn’t remember if he had assaulted me or not. I had what I thought were boundaries – I said no to him professionally many times over the years–some of which ended up with him screaming at me calling me a cunt and making threats, some of which made him laughingly tell people oh ‘Kate lives to say no to me .’ It speaks to the status quo in this business that I was aware that standing up for myself and saying no to things, while it did allow me to feel uncompromised in myself, undoubtedly harmed my career and was never something I felt supported by anyone other than my family. I would like to applaud the women who have come forward , and to pledge that we can from this create a new paradigm where producers, managers, executives and assistants and everyone who has in the past shrugged and said ‘well, that’s just Harvey /Mr X/insert name here’ will realize that we in numbers can affect real change. For every moment like this there have been thousands where a vulnerable person has confided outrageous unprofessional behavior and found they have no recourse, due to an atmosphere of fear that it seems almost everyone has been living in. I had a male friend who, based on my experience, warned a young actress who said she was going to dinner with Harvey to be careful. He received a phone call the next day saying he would never work in another Miramax film; the girl was already sleeping with Harvey and had told him that my friend had warned her off. Let’s stop allowing our young women to be sexual cannon fodder, and let’s remember that Harvey is an emblem of a system that is sick, and that we have work to do.”

Now, the Trump administration’s FBI has opened an investigation into Weinstein, amid rumors that he was planning on heading to Europe for sex rehab – leading to fears of a Roman Polanski-style situation where he dodges prosecution in the U.S.

The Daily Mail reports, Oct. 11, 2017, that R. J. Cipriani, AKA Robin Hood 702, a professional gambler/philanthropist and known FBI source, claims to have knowledge of the Weinstein case. He told Daily Mail:

“My connections and sources within the law enforcement community have told me they’re looking to bring a case against Harvey Weinstein for rape and various other charges. We must stop these sex predators from crossing any border to allow them to escape justice.”

The FBI is empowered to look at whether Weinstein has committed any federal crimes in the U.S., as well as prepare extradition proceedings if he flees to Europe. That would explain why Weinstein had a last minute change of heart, opting for sex rehab at The Meadows center in Arizona.

A spokesperson for the FBI in New York said: “We do not confirm or deny the existence of ongoing investigations.”

Weinstein is also being investigated by New York police.

Among the many allegations against Weinstein is that he forced Lucia Evans, a student who wanted to be an actress, to perform oral sex on him in New York in 2004. New York State has no statute of limitations on rape and criminal sexual acts — its legal term for forced oral or anal intercourse. Indeed, on Oct. 11, the NYPD confirmed that they also had opened an investigation into Weinstein, its Special Victims Division ordered to “endeavor to identify and locate and interview any potential victims” of Weinstein. An NYPD official told the New York Post:

“He’s a super predator. His conduct shows he’s been at this a long time, and he’s a professional at it.”

It is believed that Weinstein, who has traveled the globe promoting his movies, could have committed sex crimes in several countries, including France and England where accusers have given accounts of attacks – any of which could lead to charges against Weinstein in those countries. The FBI has field offices in both countries and could assist prosecutors there with their cases.

It is not yet known if Attorney General Jeff Sessions had ordered the FBI, or if President Trump himself had requested the investigation. Trump had said he wasn’t surprised by the sexual harassment and assault claims made against Weinstein: “I’ve known him for years. I’m not surprised.”

Weinstein was a big donor for Hillary Clinton, who finally denounced her longtime friend in a statement on Oct. 10, FIVE days after the New York Times‘ Weinstein exposé. The next day, on Oct. 11, she said she would donate to charity all Weinstein’s contributions to her failed presidential campaign.

These are Weinstein’s political donations, according to the Center for Responsive Politics and Federal Election Commission filings:

  • $69,990.45 to Hillary Clinton and associated entities:
    • $21,400 directly to Hillary Clinton between 1999 and 2016.
    • $33,590.45 to the Hillary Clinton Victory Fund.
  • Between 1999 and 2000, $1 million to Democratic candidates and $517,882 to Democratic Party organizations, including the Democratic National Committee and other state-level entities.
  • Between 1990 and 2016, through a process called “bundling”—raising funds on behalf of a candidate from friends, family, and associates—Weinstein also raised $1,422,683 for Democratic federal candidates and political entities.

Weinstein’s wife, designer Georgina Chapman, is planning to divorce him. Reported to be near-suicidal, Weinstein has retained two top criminal defense lawyers, Blair Berk and David Chesnoff.

    • JCscuba . . . . Killary indicates that she will donate the money to charity . . . does that mean the money will be funneled to the Clinton Foundation? In truth even if she “donates the money to charity,” she retains the tax write-off for charitable giving. That mean spirited woman is ever the conniving POS. If she found him reprehensible, then return the money to him. No matter how distasteful it may seem to loose the grasp on these funds, at least you would appear to be an ethical person. But “NO” that’s far too much for Killary.

    A Harvey Wallbanger used to be a drink, but in Hollywood it’s a Jew with a big wallet and a bigger langer!

    MOST OF HARVEY WEINSTEIN’S VICTIMS WERE SHIKSA
    The violently abusive term “shiksa” which is Yiddish for a gentile woman, is used and heard commonly in Jewish writings on and off the internet (for example, see this recent article in the Jewish “Times of Israel” article “Shas versus Shiksa”)–and Jewish claims that it is “harmless” have been exposed as more lies.
    In an article published on the Israeli Ynet News service, titled “Woman verbally abused by haredi bus passengers” it is revealed that ultra-Orthodox Jews “verbally abused” a Jewish woman who refused to sit in the back of a bus in Jerusalem.
    According to the article, the orthodos Jews called the woman “shiksa” and “made vomiting sounds” as she boarded the bus. The woman, a 22 year old named Miri Bleicher, has dyed dark blond hair.
    “The bus arrived but the driver didn’t open the front door, it then pulled away and stopped. I chased after it, it pulled away again and then stopped, until the driver eventually opened the door,” she was quoted as saying.
    “At this point, she realized that the men were expecting her to sit in the back where all of the women were sitting. She refused to enter through the backdoor and bravely walked past the men who mumbled hateful slurs at her, including ‘shiksa,’” the article continued.
    Now note the description of the word “shiksa” in that Ynet news article: it is clearly stated this this word is “hateful” and a “slur.”
    In fact, according to the Mirriam Webster dictionary, the official definition of a “shiksa” is as follows: “1: often disparaging : a non-Jewish girl or woman; feminine of sheygets non-Jewish boy, from Hebrew sheqes? blemish, abomination.”
    According to the soc.culture.jewish FAQ, “shiksa” and “shaygetz” are “the Yiddish derivative of the respective feminine and masculine Hebrew words for something unclean, dirty.”
    The description continues:
    “The appellations are customarily applied to gentiles who do things inimical to Jewish interests, such as vandalizing Jewish buildings, robbing Jewish kids of their lunch money, or becoming romantically involved with Jews.
    “The root is “sheketz”, which refers to house rodents and lizards. They impart ritual impurity, and therefore the term lends itself to the same kind of idea.”
    Now note the difference in Jewish Supremacist attitudes towards these words: they are often used to describe non-Jewish females (and males) and when it is done by Jews to refer to non-Jews, then it is perfectly acceptable and no-one raises an eyebrow.
    When however, orthodox Jews do it to another Jew, then it is worthy of news articles and descriptions of how “hateful” it is.
    This provides yet another insight into the burning, eternal and unquenchable hatred which Jewish Supremacists have for all gentiles, and provides a window into the hateful mind of Jewish Supremacy.

      • If claims emerge and begin to mount, experts say restructuring through a Chapter 11 bankruptcy could alleviate the pressure of potential suits brought by alleged victims or former employees.

        “A bankruptcy would centralize the claims process, meaning it would be handled by one particular judge,” rather than judges in the separate states in which claims are filed, explained Ivan L. Kallick, a partner at Manatt specializing in bankruptcy.

        Such a reorganization would leave its current management–Bob Weinstein and COO David Glasser–in place and allow the company to retain control of its assets. […]

They only way to stop it is to refuse to see it. It’s fine to tell them why, but they don’t care. In fact, that’s WHY they do what they do.

    But, like all those with money and power, after a 30 minute investigation, he will be deemed a sorry ass and in need of treatment and thus will get a slap in the wrist.

He will establish a government in Israel that will be the center of all world government, both for Jews and gentiles (Isaiah 2:2-4; 11:10; 42:1). He will rebuild the Temple and re-establish its worship (Jeremiah 33:18). He will restore the religious court system of Israel and establish Jewish law as the law of the land (Jeremiah 33:15)…The world after the messiah comes is often referred to in Jewish literature as Olam Ha-Ba (oh-LAHM hah-BAH), the World to Come…In the Olam Ha-Ba, the whole world will recognize the Jewish G-d as the only true G-d, and the Jewish religion as the only true religion (Isaiah 2:3; 11:10; Micah 4:2-3; Zechariah 14:9).”

All armies will be abolished, and there will be no more wars. In Jerusalem, the United Nations (a truly United Nations) will build a Shrine of the Prophets to serve the federated union of all continents; this will be the seat of the Supreme Court of Mankind, to settle all controversies among the federated continents, as prophesied by Isaiah.”

    OUR JEWISH AGENDA THE SHOAH

    [Shalom Welcome to my website. I am Rabbi Solomon Cohen and I am happy to be your host. Please feel free to browse around the different topics that I will be discussing here by clicking on the individual tabs at the top of the page. This site is currently a work in progress and it is my hope to continue adding to it in the coming days. Kol Tuv, Rabbi Solomon Cohen]

    In the Torah it is written:

    “It shall be a jubilee unto you; and you shall return every man to his possession and you shall return every man to his family.” In the Torah, the word for תשבה, teshuva, “return” is missing the letter ו (vav), ordinarily it would be spelled תשובה. The Zohar tells us that the Torah writes teshuva without the letter vav to hint at the year when the Jewish people will return to our land from the long and bitter exile. The gematria (numerical value) of teshuva is 708 (tav = 400; shin = 300; bet = 2; vav = 6). Therefore the missing vav in the word תשבה, as written in the Torah (which equals the number 6) was a prophecy that the Jews would be allowed to return to Israel minus 6 million of our people:

    “You shall return minus 6 million”; while the combined numerical value of the word teshuva = 708, indicates the year of our return.

    Now you can see that the “Holocaust” was planned by Jews.

    Is it true that ALL or most of the secretaries of the Allied Leaders at Versailles, were Jewish?

    The Treaty for War; The War Treaty of Versailles, signed on 28th June 1919 was the work of International Bankers. They took all the measures necessary to ensure the next World War. The British Prime Minister, Lloyd George, wrote:

    “The international bankers swept statesmen, politicians, journalists and jurists all to one side and issued their orders with the imperiousness of absolute monarchs. The American President, Woodrow Wilson, was “advised” at Versailles by (JEW)Bernard Baruch, The British Prime Minister, Lloyd George, was “advised” by (JEW) Alfred Milner, Rothschild employee, and Sir Phillip Sassoon, a direct descendent of Mayer Amschel Rothschild,

    The French leader, Georges Clemenceau, was “advised” by his Minister for the Interior, Georges Mandel, (JEW) whose real name was Jeroboam Rothschild. The interpreter was Mantoux; and the Military Adviser was Mr. Kish. Interestingly all the advisers were Jews most of them representing International Bankers. The “leaders were hazy about geography. However, their Jewish secretaries were very much on the spot on such matters. These Jews met at 6 p.m. in the evenings to plan the next World War; and accordingly, mapped out the decisions for the following day’s conference of the “Big Four”.

    Under the War Treaty of Versailles, Poland was given a “corridor” to the Baltic Sea, along with large areas of West Prussia that were populated by Germans. This “corridor” completely separated East Prussia from the Reich, making trade and communication difficult or impossible. During Allied discussions on the peace treaty, Lloyd George, the then British Prime Minister, tapped this spot on the map and probably echoed the words of his secretary said an evening before;

    “This is where (we have planned) the next world war will begin!”

    Unknown to Hitler this was how International Bankers had planned 2nd World War to begin 20 years earlier on 28th June 1919. Under the War Treaty of Versailles, Jewish International Bankers cut Germany in several pieces and gifted it to other European Countries.

    A piece of Germany – Alsace-Lorraine was gifted to France, A piece of Germany Saar Region of Coal mines was forcibly brought under French Protectorate, A piece of Germany – Eupen, Malmedy, Moresńet, and St. Vith was gifted to Belgium, A piece of Germany – Northern Schleswig was gifted to Denmark, several pieces of Germany – Hultschin and Opava was gifted to Czechoslovakia, several pieces of Germany – West Prussia, Danzig, Posen and Upper Silesia were gifted to Poland, several pieces of Germany – Rhineland and Memel were brought under the League of Nations and people of these regions were to vote in future, to decide whether they want to remain in Germany or not. League of Nations also took control of land won by Germany under treaty of Brest-Litovsk. Some of this land was gifted to Poland and some made into new states of Estonia, Lithuania and Latavia.

    Jewish International Bankers also cut Habsburg Empire in several pieces and these pieces gifted to other nations. First it was cut into two separate countries; Austria and Hungary who then had to sign two separate treaties;- Austria was forced to sign Treaty of Saint Germain Hungary was forced to sign Treaty of Trianon Hapsburg Empire was not only cut in two but large piece is further cut out of Empire to form a totally new country Czechoslovakia. Several Pieces of Hapsburg empire i.e. Bohemia, Moravia, Opava Silesia and the western part of Duchy of Cieszyn, Slovakia and Carpathian Ruthenia formed the new Czechoslovakia. Several Pieces of Austria i.e. Galicia, eastern part of Duchy of Cieszyn, northern County of Orava and northern Spisz were gifted to Poland. Several Pieces of Austria – Bolzano-Bozen and Trieste were gifted to Italy. Several pieces of Hungary – Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia-Slavonia, Dalmatia, Slovenia, and Vojvodina were gifted to Serbia to form the Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, later Yugoslavia. (Several ethnic minorities were deliberately merged in Yugoslavia by International Bankers so that they can earn money from future wars between these ethnic minorities). Several pieces of Habsburg Empire Austria-Hungary – Transylvania and Bukovina were gifted to Romania. All states of Eastern Europe became hub of large national minorities. One eighth of German population found themselves in the newly created countries as minorities. One third of ethnic Hungarians found themselves living outside of Hungary as minorities.

    From its borders before World War I, it lost 72% of its territory, which was reduced from 325,111 square Kilometers (125,526 sq mi) to merely 93,073 square Kilometers (35,936 sq mi). It also lost 64% of its total population, which was reduced from 20.9 million to 7.6 million, and 31% (3.3 out of 10.7 million) of its ethnic Hungarians, who suddenly found themselves living outside the newly defined borders of Hungary. Hungary lost five of its ten most populous cities and was deprived of direct access to the sea and of some of its most valuable natural resources.

  12. GENTILES IN HALACHA
    Foreword — Daat Emet
    In this article R’ Bar-Chayim discusses the attitude towards “Gentiles” in the Torah and in the Halacha and comes to an unambiguous conclusion:

    “The Torah of Israel makes a clear distinction between a Jew, who is defined as ‘man,’ and a Gentile.”

    That is to say, any notion of equality between human beings is irrelevant to the Halacha. R’ Bar-Chayim’s work is comprehensive, written with intellectual honesty, and deals with almost all the aspects of Halachic treatment of non-Jews. It also refutes the statements of those rabbis who speak out of wishful thinking and, influenced by concepts of modern society, claim that Judaism does not discriminate against people on religious grounds. R’ Bar-Chayim shows that all these people base their constructs NOT on the Torah but solely on the inclinations of their own hearts. He also shows that there are even rabbis who intentionally distort the Halachic attitude to Gentiles, misleading both themselves and the general public.
    For the English readers’ convenience we will briefly mention the topics dealt with in R’ Bar-Chayim’s article:

    Laws in regard to murder, which clearly state that there is Halachic difference between murder of a Jew and of a Gentile (the latter is considered a far less severe crime).
    A ban on desecrating the Sabbath to save the life of a Gentile.
    A Jew’s exemption from liability if his property (e. g. ox) causes damage to a Gentile’s property. But if a Gentile’s property causes damage to a Jew’s property, the Gentile is liable.
    The question of whether robbery of a Gentile is forbidden by the Torah’s law or only by a Rabbinic decree.
    A ban on returning a lost item to a Gentile if the reason for returning it is one’s sympathy towards the Gentile and compassion for him.
    The sum which a Gentile overpays in a business transaction due to his own error is forfeit; whether a Jew is permitted to intentionally deceive a Gentile is also discussed.
    One who kidnaps a Jew is liable to death, but one who kidnaps a Gentile is exempt.
    A Jew who hurts or injures a Gentile is not liable for compensation of damage, but a Gentile who hurts a Jew is liable to death.
    One who overcharges a Gentile ought not return him the sum that the Gentile overpaid.
    A Gentile — or even a convert to Judaism — may not be appointed king or public official of any sort (e. g. a cabinet minister).
    One who defames a female proselyte (claiming that she was not virgin at the time of her marriage) is liable to neither lashes nor fine.
    The prohibition to hate applies only to Jews; one may hate a Gentile.
    One may take revenge against or bear a grudge towards Gentiles; likewise, the commandment “love your neighbour” applies only to Jews, not to Gentiles.
    One who sees Gentile graveyards should curse: “Your mother shall be greatly ashamed…”
    Gentiles are likened to animals.
    If an ox damaged a Gentile maidservant, it should be considered as though the ox damaged a she-ass.
    The dead body of a Gentile does not bear ritual impurity, nor does a Gentile who touches the dead body of a Jew become impure — he is considered like an animal who touched a dead body.
    One is forbidden to pour anointing oil on a Jew, but there is no ban on pouring that oil on a Gentile because Gentiles are likened to animals.
    An animal slaughtered by a Gentile is forbidden, even if the ritual slaughter performed was technically correct, because Gentiles are deemed like animals. (Daat Emet does not agree that this is the Halachic reason for invalidating a Gentile’s ritual slaughter — but this is not the place to delve into the subject).
    Their members (genitals) are like those of asses” — Gentiles are likened to animals.

    Between the Jews and the Gentiles — In the Aggadah, the Kabbalah, and in Jewish Thought
    R’ Bar-Chayim’s arguments and conclusions are clear, Halachically accurate, and supported by almost all the existent major Halachic works. It would be superfluous to say that R’ Bar-Chayim fully embraces this racist Halachic outlook as the word of the Living G-d, as he himself pointed out in the “Conclusion” of his article:

    “It is clear to every Jew who accepts the Torah as G-d’s word from Sinai, obligatory and valid for all generations, that it is impossible to introduce ‘compromises’ or ‘renovations’ into it.”

    On the other hand, we want to make it clear that Daat Emet — as well as any reasonable people who do not embrace Halachic laws as the word of the Living G-d — are repulsed by such evil, racist discrimination.
    In the Hebrew text we have abridged the second part of R’ Bar-Chayim’s article,
    “Between Jews and Gentiles — In the Aggadah, the Kabbalah, and in Jewish Thought,” because, in our view, the Halacha is the law which obligates every religious Jew while concepts of the Aggadah, the Kabbalah, and Jewish thought are not binding on anyone, as our rabbis have already written:

    “And so the Aggadic constructs of the disciples of disciples, such as Rav Tanchuma and Rabbi Oshaya and their like — most are incorrect, and therefore we do not rely on the words of Aggadah”

    (Sefer HaEshkol, Laws of a Torah Scroll, p. 60a); we have expanded on this issue in the portion of Vayeshev.
