Curator claims Barbra Streisand tribute museum is part of the #MeToo era

According to the NY Post, there’s a museum exhibit devoted to Barbara Streisand that showcases “the way she was, is and perhaps always will be.”

It’s called “Hello Gorgeous,” and features costumes, photos, videos and more at the Bernard Museum of Judaica at Temple Emanu-el.

According to museum curator Warren Klein, “It’s the perfect exhibition for the #metoo era,” who calls Streisand “a strong, driven woman” — one who refused to change her surname, or her nose, to suit the norm. (There are rumors of Streisand’s numerous plastic surgeries, of which she denies.)

Streisand did not contribute any items to the exhibit. Read about the “Hello Gorgeous” museum display here.

I wonder if the exhibit will feature any of the following photos?

We must #BelieveWomen: Child rapist and Hollyweird hero Polanski denies latest rape allegation

From MSN: In an article in Le Parisien on Friday, Valentine Monnier alleged that Polanski raped her violently at a ski chalet in Gstaad, Switzerland, in 1975. The allegation cannot result in any criminal charges because Switzerland’s 20-year statute of limitations has passed.

In a statement issued to Agence-France Presse on Sunday, Polanski’s French attorney, Hervé Témime, said that the filmmaker “most firmly contests the accusation of rape….We are considering taking legal action against this publication.” Témime said Polanski “will not participate in the media trial, and me neither.”

The lawyer added that the allegation “concerns facts that are 45 years old. Never has this accusation been brought to Polanski’s knowledge, and neither to a judicial institution, except for a letter sent to the California prosecutor two years ago, according to Le Parisien.” Témime said that “it’s impossible after so much time to gather all the necessary elements to conduct a [proper] investigation.”

Polanski has been living in exile in France since fleeing the U.S. in 1978, before he could be sentenced after pleading guilty to having sex with a 13-year-old girl. Numerous efforts over the years to resolve the case with Los Angeles prosecutors have gone nowhere, as Polanski has refused to return and submit to U.S. jurisdiction.

In spite of the controversy that has surrounded Polanski for the past decades, he was able to get his new film, “An Officer and a Spy” (“J’accuse”), financed mainly out of France with a budget of $21 million, making it one of the country’s most ambitious films this year. But the new allegation by Monnier has cast cloud over the film’s imminent release in France on Wednesday on more than 500 screens.

On Sunday, the movie’s leading actor, Oscar-winner Jean Dujardin, canceled an appearance on a primetime newscast to promote the film.

On the critical front, “An Officer and a Spy” has been applauded. It world premiered at the Venice Film Festival, where it won the Silver Lion Grand Jury Prize, and has just garnered four European Film Awards nominations. “An Officer and a Spy” has also been bought by distributors in several territories.

Hanoi Jane says she’s not buying anymore clothes to fight climate change

Immediately after saying that she goes on to say that it may not be reasonable to say she will never buy clothing again in her life. “I’m going to live to 100, maybe.” she joked.

Later, Fonda told NPR she’s “not buying anymore clothes. Period.

Wonder if Hanoi Jane can commit to saying the same about flying via private jet?

Don’t kid yourself: The corporate liberals care nothing about protecting women

Ever since the #MeToo movement started, we’ve been told by democats that we must #BelieveWomen.

Yet when it comes to telling womens’ stories of abuse and harassment, the media and progressives do everything they can to bury the stories to protect their friends in high places.

Apparently it’s only acceptable to #BelieveWomen when they accuse republican men (even with scant-to-no proof).

NBC killed Ronan Farrow’s expose on Harvey Weinstein in their desire to protect predators.

ABC News spiked a story exposing the truth behind pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Obviously, the above two stories have a certain power couple connection – the Clintons. Funny how the two alphabets killed these stories at the time Hillary Clinton was running for president. Just a coincidence, I guess.

Now comes word that Nike is apparently victim-shaming a women runner who claims that Nike’s former trainer, Alberto Salazar , put her through physical and mental abuse.

The NY Post reports that athlete Mary Cain, while working with Salazar on Nike’s Oregon Project, the coach forced her to lose weight and ignored her acts of self-harm. Just 17 at the time, Cain describes scenes where Salazar would weigh her in front of her teammates and publicly shame her if she wasn’t hitting her weight.

Nike cut ties with Salazar this year after he was banned for 4 years from athletics for doping offenses.

Nike says they will launch an investigation and from their statement: “These are deeply troubling allegations which have not been raised by Mary or her parents before. Mary was seeking to rejoin the Oregon Project and Alberto’s team as recently as April of this year and had not raised these concerns as part of that process.”

The NY Post says that other women are backing Cain’s claims. From their report:

Multiple prominent runners, including New York City Marathon winner Shalane Flanagan, have spoken out in support of Cain. Olympic runner Kara Goucher backed up Cain’s allegations and criticized Nike’s handling of the situation on Twitter Friday.

“So [Nike] responds to [Cain],” Goucher wrote. “Takes the time to victim shame Mary, before saying they will investigate. I hope you come to me, because I have stories to match all of Mary’s claims and so much more. Don’t let this be more lip service, actually do something.

Read the whole NY Post story here.

As a result of this scandal, Nike CEO Mark Parker is stepping down to become executive chairman of the company on January 13, 2020. He endorsed Hillary Clinton for president in 2016.

Just another example of progressives’ and their double standards: They claim to care about women yet put politics, power and profits over the truth and well-being of women.

Ronan Farrow says Bill Clinton should be investigated for ‘credible’ rape accusations

Ronan Farrow, 31, the son of actress Mia Farrow and Woody Allen, is an investigative journalist who sparked the #MeToo movement by uncovering Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein’s sexual abuses in articles in The New Yorker in late 2017, which won the magazine the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. Farrow then investigated and exposed sexual abuse allegations against New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and CBS Chairman/CEO Les Moonves, which led to the resignations of both in 2018.

Although Farrow is a liberal and despite his association with Hillary Clinton (in 2011, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton appointed Farrow as her Special Adviser for Global Youth Issues and Director of the State Department’s Office of Global Youth Issues), he has demonstrated his journalistic objectivity by saying that an investigation into “credible” rape accusations against former President Bill Clinton is long “overdue”.

Farrow said that in an interview last Friday night, November 1, 2019, on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher”.

As reported by Fox News, Farrow told Maher, “Bill Clinton…has been credibly accused of rape. That has nothing to do with gray areas. I think that the Juanita Broaddrick claim has been overdue for revisiting,” and that Bill wouldn’t escape scrutiny today because society’s views on sexual misconduct have “changed.”

In an interview with Dateline NBC that aired on February 24, 1999, former nursing home administrator Juanita Broaddrick said then-Arkansas Attorney General Bill Clinton raped her in 1978 during his gubernatorial campaign.

As recounted by Broaddrick to Dateline NBC, she had offered to volunteer for Clinton’s campaign. On April 25, 1978, Broaddrick was attending a nursing home meeting at the Camelot Hotel in Little Rock, Arkansas. Bill Clinton suggested that instead of meeting in the hotel’s coffee shop, they meet “for coffee” in her hotel room that she was sharing with her friend and employee Norma Rogers, so as to avoid a crowd of reporters in the hotel lobby. Broaddrick said:

“Then he tries to kiss me again. And the second time he tries to kiss me he starts biting my lip … He starts to, um, bite on my top lip and I tried to pull away from him. And then he forces me down on the bed. And I just was very frightened, and I tried to get away from him and I told him ‘No,’ that I didn’t want this to happen but he wouldn’t listen to me…. It was a real panicky, panicky situation. I was even to the point where I was getting very noisy, you know, yelling to ‘Please stop.’ And that’s when he pressed down on my right shoulder and he would bite my lip…. When everything was over with, he got up and straightened himself, and I was crying at the moment and he walks to the door, and calmly puts on his sunglasses. And before he goes out the door he says ‘You better get some ice on that.’ And he turned and went out the door.”

Broaddrick’s roommate Norma Rogers said she returned to their hotel room to find Broaddrick on the bed “in a state of shock”, with her pantyhose torn in the crotch and her lip swollen as though she had been hit. Broaddrick told her Clinton had “forced himself on her”. Rogers helped Broaddrick ice her lip, and then the women left Little Rock. Rogers said that Broaddrick was very upset on the way home and blamed herself for letting Clinton in the room. Broaddrick also confided in four other persons about the rape.

Since 1999 when she first went public with her rape accusation, Broaddrick has persisted in her charges against Bill Clinton, slamming Democrats for refusing to believe her:

  • In 2000, when Hillary Clinton was running in the U.S. Senate election in New York, Broaddrick published an open letter to Hillary, denouncing her for  covering for her husband’s rape.
  • During the 2016 presidential election, Broaddrick repeated her rape claims on Twitter: “I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73. …it never goes away.”
  • On October 9, 2016, Broaddrick appeared on a panel with Trump, Paula Jones, and Kathleen Willey an hour before the second presidential debate between Trump and Hillary Clinton. Bill Clinton was in the audience.
  • In January 2018, Broaddrick self-published a memoir, co-authored by Nick Lulli, with the title You’d Better Put Some Ice On That: How I Survived Being Raped By Bill Clinton.

Back to Ronan Farrow.

In his new book, Catch and Kill: Spies and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators, Farrow revealed that Hillary Clinton had tried to pressure him into not publishing the bombshell sexual allegations against Harvey Weinstein.

As described by The Hollywood Reporter on October 9, 2019:

Weinstein also attempted to leverage his long-term relationship with Hillary Clinton to pressure Farrow…. In summer 2017, while Farrow was trying to lock down an interview with Clinton for his foreign policy book…he received a call from Clinton’s publicist, Nick Merrill, who told him that the “big story” Farrow was working on was a “concern for us.”

In an interview with Fox News on October 16, 2019, Farrow gave more details. He said that Hillary Clinton “attempted to withdraw from an interview that she had committed to for a foreign policy book that I was working on, for which I interviewed every other living secretary of state. And, before doing so, her staff raised concerns about the fact that I was working on this story about one of her most significant donors [Harvey Weinstein] — a big bundler of Hollywood money.”

Wall Street Journal wades in on Meghan Markle controversy

The toxin that is Meghan Markle (and her thoroughly- and willingly-emasculated husband, Prince Harry) is no longer confined to the British Isles. Even Wall Street Journal is weighing in on the unending controversies she deliberately has fomented.

Gerard Baker is the Editor at Large of The Wall Street Journal. A former Editor-in-Chief of Dow Jones and The Wall Street Journal (2014-2018) and former U.S. editor and an assistant editor of the Times of London, Baker covered economics for the BBC and worked as an economist at the Bank of England and Lloyds. He  holds a degree in philosophy, politics and economics from Corpus Christi College, Oxford University.

Below is Gerard Baker’s “An American Duchess Takes to the Barricades,” Wall Street Journal, November 1, 2019, which is behind a paywall. Fortunately, The Charlatan Duchess took screenshots of the article.

Meghan and her enabler Prince Harry blame her negative press on racism — the Left’s default catch-all excuse.

But it should be noted that before she snatched the British royal, Markle had never identified as biracial. Instead, her actress bio/resume identifies her as “Caucasian” (white).

Now she wears her half-black racial identity as a badge of honor and wields it as a bludgeon against her critics, including the UK taxpayers whom she no longer fools. Just read the overwhelmingly negative readers’ comments on any article about her and Harry in the Daily Mail, such as here. See also “Brits sign petition to stop taxpayer funding of Meghan Markle & Prince Harry“.

Little known is the fact that Meghan is so proud of her black ancestry that she had cosmetic surgery to shave her bulbous negroid nose. Below are pics of her when she was a student at Immaculate Heart Middle School, a private school for girls in Los Angeles, California.

Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle Sr., had paid for her private school tuition at the Hollywood Little Red Schoolhouse and Immaculate Heart Middle School. Markle also paid for Meghan’s considerable tuition and expenses at another private institution, Northwestern University.

During a speech at the University of South Pacific in Fiji in October 2019, Meghan said she had paid for her Northwestern University tuition through scholarships, financial aid, and her campus job. That was a lie, one of many from the pathological liar.

In September 2019, Thomas Markle Sr. set the record straight. He told the Mail on Sunday (which Meghan and Harry are suing) what Meghan claims is “completely untrue” and that “I paid every penny of her tuition [at Northwestern] and I have the bank statements to prove it.”

Mr. Markle also paid for Meghan’s internship at the US embassy in Buenos Aires when she was a junior at Northwestern:

“I paid for her trips to Spain and England. I paid for her internship in Argentina. I always upheld my responsibilities as a father. Meghan’s comments about paying her way through college are offensive to me. I don’t want anything from Meghan or Harry but I’m not going to shut up until the whole truth is out there. I will continue to contradict anything said about me that isn’t true.”

Meghan’s parents, Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland, divorced when she was six. She was brought up entirely by her father, whom she has “ghosted” and didn’t invite to her London wedding. Although “climate-change activist” Harry doesn’t hesitate to fly on gas-guzzling carbon-spewing private jets, he had never bothered to meet his 75-year-old father-in-law, who is bankrupt, in poor health, and lives alone in Rosarito, Mexico.

Doria was the only member of Meghan’s biological family who was invited to the wedding. Meghan has “ghosted” not just her father, but also her paternal half-sister and half-brother, both of whom have warned the British royalty and the world about how destructive Meghan is.

Twitter to ban all political advertising

Jack Dorsey, CEO of  Twitter and self-appointed censor of free political speech, announced on the eve of Satan’s holiday that ALL political advertising  on Twitter is now banned.

In addition, the ban extends t0 election advertising and political issues. Think anti-abortion, pro second amendment, and global climate change skeptics. In addition, it does not take an Einstein to figure out that this policy is aimed directly at President Trump, who uses Twitter to inform citizens of important issues that Twitter and the rest of the left wing, libtard, socialist/communist media cabal ignore.

Twitter will ban all political advertising, the company’s CEO has announced, in a move that will increase pressure on Facebook over its controversial stance to allow politicians to advertise false statements.

The new policy, announced via Jack Dorsey’s Twitter account on Wednesday, will come into effect on 22 November and will apply globally to all electioneering ads, as well as ads related to political issues. The timing means the ban will be in place in time for the UK snap election.

@jack

We’ve made the decision to stop all political advertising on Twitter globally. We believe political message reach should be earned, not bought. Why? A few reasons…🧵

Twitter had previously implemented rules and restrictions for political advertising.

The announcement comes as Facebook is embroiled in a controversy over its decision to exempt ads by politicians from third-party fact checking and from a policy that bans false statements from paid advertisements. Dorsey explained the motivations behind the change in a lengthy Twitter thread that appeared to include several references and responses to the convoluted arguments that Facebook has put forward in recent weeks.

The organic spread of political messages online “should not be compromised by money”, he wrote. The advanced state of digital advertising technology, including “machine learning-based optimization of messaging and micro-targeting” and deepfakes – fake or manipulated videos that appear real – combined with the pollution of the online information ecosystem with misinformation, “present entirely new challenges to civic discourse”.

“This isn’t about free expression,” he added, in a seeming riposte to the Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s recent defense of online political advertising in a speech billed as a “stand for voice and free expression”. “This is about paying for reach. And paying to increase the reach of political speech has significant ramifications that today’s democratic infrastructure may not be prepared to handle. It’s worth stepping back in order to address.”

Dorsey tweeted another counter-argument to Facebook with an accompanying winking emoji, writing: “It’s not credible for us to say: ‘We’re working hard to stop people from gaming our systems to spread misleading info, but if someone pays us to target and force people to see their political ad…well…they can say whatever they want!’”

Replying to @jack

For instance, it‘s not credible for us to say: “We’re working hard to stop people from gaming our systems to spread misleading info, buuut if someone pays us to target and force people to see their political ad…well…they can say whatever they want! 😉”

That argument appears to mock Facebook’s recent attempts to justify its decisions to exempt posts by politicians from its third-party factchecking program, and ads by politicians from a policy that bans false statements from paid advertisements.

Together, the policies have created a situation in which Facebook is simultaneously asserting its commitment to reducing misinformation while allowing incumbent politicians and political candidates to lie in paid campaign ads.

Dorsey called for “forward-looking political ad regulation”, noting that transparency requirements that have been proposed by US lawmakers are “progress but not enough.”

“The internet provides entirely new capabilities, and regulators need to think past the present day to ensure a level playing field,” he said.

Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale, called Twitter’s decision “another attempt by the left to silence Trump and conservatives” while Hillary Clinton called it “the right thing to do for democracy in America and all over the world” and the New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez deemed it “a good call”.

Daniel Kreiss, an associate professor of journalism and media at the University of North Carolina, argued that companies should focus on restricting the use of personal data in ad targeting rather than banning all political ads, which he said “favors incumbents and media appointed elites vis-a-vis challengers”.

J Nathan Matias, an assistant professor of communication at Cornell University, said that the ban could have a number of unintended consequences, including pushing campaigns to use more bots and “hybrid human-software coordination on Twitter”.

“It’s very hard to define ‘political’ things from non-political discourse,” he added. “If their policies are too loose or their enforcement too clumsy, Twitter could do real damage to public health, the uptake of government services and civic life.”

New “Charlie’s Angels” movie directed/produced by pro-abort Elizabeth Banks

Because few in Hollyweird have any original ideas, libtard actress Elizabeth Banks decided to remake “Charlie’s Angels.”

Banks is a full-on Hollyweird progressive:

She advocates for stricter gun control laws (while using gun violence in her new movie).

She supported loser Hillary Clinton for president in 2016. She supported Obama for president in 2012. She also has been infected with TDS.

And, of course, she is pro-abort and “cares very deeply” about Planned Parenthood.

On Tuesday the Center for Reproductive Rights (a global legal advocacy organization that seeks to advance reproductive rights, such as abortion) announced that Banks was their new “Creative Council” chair. From their Instagram:

“It’s official! We are harnessing the power of the creative community to advance reproductive rights as fundamental human rights around the world. Say hello to our Creative Council, chaired by the fearless actor and activist @ElizabethBanks.

“As someone who struggled with fertility issues and made embryos, I think there’s such an interesting dialogue to be had about how abortion care is part of a larger package of reproductive care that is also about creating wonderful families and access to family care,” says Banks.

Other members of the Council include @ajanaomi_king, @BusyPhilipps, @AmyBrenneman, @LisaEdelstein, @yesimsarahjones, @cindi_leive, @openingceremony’s Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, and @erikasavage. Welcome aboard!”

Another Hollyweird movie I won’t be seeing.
