Changing their tune: Clinton Foundation won’t donate Weinstein’s campaign donations

Did anyone really believe that the Clinton’s would give back money?

From Daily Mail: The Clinton Foundation told DailyMail.com it will not return as much as $250,000 in donations from Harvey Weinstein, saying on Sunday the money had already been spent on the organization’s programs and used for charitable purposes.

The foundation’s decision comes as politicians and philanthropic groups grapple with whether to return donations they have received from Weinstein, after numerous women stepped forward this month to accuse the movie mogul of sexual assault, harassment and rape.

Over a dozen Democratic politicians have said they will give back or donate Weinstein’s campaign contributions to charity.

The Clinton Foundation faced questions about Weinstein’s funding after Hillary Clinton said last week she would re-gift his campaign donations to charity.

Weinstein was a major bundler for Clinton, hosting fundraising events with deep-pocketed Hollywood donors, and personally contributed over $35,000 to her 2016 presidential campaign.

A spokesperson for the Clinton Foundation told DailyMail.com that the group will not return Weinstein’s donations, which totaled between $100,000 and $250,000. He said Weinstein’s last contribution to the group was in 2014.

The spokesman said the foundation already spent the money on its programs, such as lowering the cost of HIV medication and supporting women and girls in developing countries.

The foundation said it supports commitments to combat human trafficking, and runs the No Ceilings Project ‘which aims to advance the full participation of girls and women around the world’ through ‘data-driven analysis on gender inequality, an in-depth conversation series, innovative partnerships, and CGI commitments.’

The explanation comes after foundation board member Chelsea Clinton ducked questions about Weinstein’s money from a DailyMail.com reporter while attending a Clinton Global Initiative University event at Northeastern University in Boston on Saturday. The former first daughter hustled out a side door after the event, evading a reporter as she rushed to her car surrounded by aides and security.

The Clinton Foundation and a spokesperson for Hillary Clinton had previously declined to comment on the Weinstein matter.

Organizations have been divided on whether to return money to Weinstein, who gave to numerous political and philanthropic causes over the years.

Hillary Clinton in talks to become a professor at Columbia University

hillary clinton nasty woman

I’d rather poke a pencil in my eye than listen to an hour-long lecture from this serial liar.

From Daily Mail: Hillary Clinton is ‘in talks’ to become a professor at Columbia University in New York City. Sources speaking with the New York Daily News said the school is considering multiple options with her. These include giving her the role of ‘University Professor’ and housing her archives there.

The former Secretary of State could teach in one school – such as Columbia Law School or the School of International and Public Affairs – or across many different schools.

‘No decisions have been made, but there are talks,’ one source told the New York Daily News. Columbia University declined to comment on the matter.

The former First Lady and 2016 Democratic presidential candidate would join her daughter, Chelsea, at the Ivy League school.

Chelsea has served as an adjunct professor in the Mailman School of Public Health since 2012. The former First Daughter and Clinton Foundation board member received an undergraduate degree from Stanford, master’s degrees from Oxford and Columbia and a doctorate from Oxford.

Hillary Clinton received her undergraduate degree in 1969 from Wellesley College, where she wrote her senior thesis on the organizing tactics of activist Saul Alinsky. She later attended and received a Juris Doctor in 1973 from Yale Law School, where she met her husband, Bill Clinton, the 42nd President of the United States.

She wrote in her memoir, ‘What Happened’ that she declined to attend Harvard because a professor there told her: ‘We don’t need any more women at Harvard.’

Isn’t this special: Justin Trudeau is raising his kids to be feminists

Questions for Justin:

From what I’ve seen in the world, women face unequal obstacles every day because the left’s definition of feminism is enabling men and women to silence, demean and belittle people of both genders. Their quest for power is silencing vulnerable voices every day.

From Marie Claire (by Justin Trudeau): I am in politics because every day, I get to work to make the world a little better—for my kids, and for yours. I’m proud of the dedicated work our team is doing to make Canada more open, more inclusive, more just—and gender equal. But some of the most important work I do is not as a political leader, but as a parent. Every day, at home, I have the astonishing and humbling opportunity—together with my wife Sophie—to nurture empathy, compassion, self-love, and a keen sense of justice in our three kids.

I am so exceptionally proud of my daughter Ella-Grace. She’s growing up kind, super-smart, a passionate debater, open to the world around her. I love Ella, and I worry—because as a father, son, husband, and citizen, I witness the unequal obstacles women and girls face every day. It’s 2017, yet in Canada and around the world, women and girls still face violence, discrimination, stereotypes that limit them, and unequal opportunities that keep them from achieving their dreams. It is maddening to me that my brilliant, compassionate daughter will grow up in a world where, despite everything she is as a person, there will still be people who won’t take her voice seriously, who will write her off—simply because of her gender.

I can—and do—work every day to shift those inequalities, even incrementally. But I also know that the most powerful medicine will come from Ella herself. Sophie and I can’t be there with Ella at every hard moment of her life—to protect her when someone makes her feel small, to advocate for her when someone isn’t listening—even if we wish we could. (Parents will relate.) So the best thing we can do is to help Ella learn, unshakeably, that she is enough, exactly as she is. That she has immense power, and intrinsic worth, which no one can ever take away from her. That she has a strong voice, which she can use, and trust.

That means raising her feminist. Full stop.

I’m eternally lucky to have an amazing partner in that project. Sophie continues to inspire and challenge me, and a few years ago, she helped me reach a turning point. I was talking about teaching Ella that she can be anything she wants to be. Sophie said, “That’s great—but how are you raising your sons to be strong advocates for women and girls, too?”

Gender equality is not only an issue for women and girls. All of us benefit when women and girls have the same opportunities as men and boys—and it’s on all of us to make that a reality. Our sons have the power and the responsibility to change our culture of sexism, and I want Xavier and Hadrien—when he’s a little older—to understand that deeply. But I want, too, to help them grow into empathetic young people and adults, strong allies who walk through the world with openness, love, and a fierce attachment to justice. I want my sons to escape the pressure to be a particular kind of masculine that is so damaging to men and to the people around them. I want them to be comfortable being themselves, and being feminists—who stand up for what’s right, and who can look themselves in the eye with pride.

Feminism is not just the belief that men and women are equal. It’s the knowledge that when we are all equal, all of us are more free. It’s a relentless commitment to look for ourselves in each other, because that’s how we start to build a world where everyone is treated with respect and recognition. And it’s the unwavering conviction that all people have the same rights and freedoms—that my rights are your rights, and it is only when your rights are fully protected that mine are, too.

That world doesn’t exist yet. But it can be built—by people who have a strong sense of justice and empathy, who stand up for the rights of others, and who seek out their own unique ways of creating more inclusive communities.

That’s the world we want to live in. That’s the world we want our kids to live in. To raise our kids feminist is to recognize that they ALL have a part to play to build that world. To raise our kids feminist is to honor their future, because they have the responsibility—and the power—to shape it for the better.

4th woman accuses director Roman Polanski of child-rape

Director Roman Polanski, 84, is a fugitive from justice.

In 1977, Polanski was arrested and charged with raping a 13-year-old girl named Samantha Geimer. He pled guilty to the charge of statutory rape, but fled from the United States to Paris before he could be sentenced. He has lived in exile in Europe ever since.

It turns out Roman Polanski is a serial child-rapist.

John Nolte reports for Breitbart, Oct. 3, 3017, that a fourth woman has come forth, accusing Polanski of raping her when she was a minor.

According to The New York Times, 61-year-old former actress Renate Langer filed a complaint with the Swiss police accusing Polanski of raping her on two occasions, the first time in 1972 when she was just 15. Langer says the sexual assault took place when she was visiting the director at his home in Gstaad after he’d expressed an interest in her for a film. The following month, with the promise of a movie role and an apology, he lured her into another rape.

In addition to Langer and Geimer, Polanski is also accused by:

Born in Paris of agnostic Polish Jewish parents, Polanski said he’s an atheist in an interview about his most famous film, Rosemary’s Baby. (Wikipedia)

John Nolte points to the hypocrisy of feminists and Hollywood:

Roman Polanski remains the Great White Hypocrisy of America’s oh-so woke, leftwing feminists. An Oscar-winner who also happens to be a fugitive child rapist, he is also a cause célèbre among Hollywood’s beautiful people….

You see, the sophisticated left wants us to forgive and forget Roman’s crimes — kind of like the way they want us to forgive and forget the myriad of accusations against former President Bill Clinton.

In the wake of his heinous 1977 crime, countless self-proclaimed male and female “feminists” have worked with, celebrated, and defended Polanski.

This fourth accuser will change nothing.

Indeed. Where’s the “social justice” outrage for Polanski’s victims and the countless other victims of Hellywood pedophiles?

Feminists are insufferable: Libtard Sophia Bush hits out at cruel trolls for “ripping her apart” on social media

sophia bush

Honey, if you’re gonna play on Twitter ya better wear your big girl pants.

From Daily Mail: Sophia Bush has hit out at cruel online trolls who ‘endlessly attack’ her on social media. The One Tree Hill star, 35, slammed  ‘groups of “fans”‘ who berate her lifestyle choices and said the the hurtful comments she is regularly subjected to leave her feeling ‘like s**t’.

Writing an impassioned post on Twitter on Wednesday, Sophia said: ‘Being alerted to groups of “fans” ripping your life, choices, and happiness apart in private chats feels like s*** y’all. Truly. More of her tweets:

  • Being endlessly attached by trolls and b****ed at for every single thing you do, also feels like s***. You can’t please everyone?
  • Well you sure can be ripped by everyone. Every day. Endlessly. You think I’m too private? That I owe you something? What does it need to,’ she wrote, before heading into another tweet.
  • be for kindness to be practice, and for something you don’t like to not get “A Beautiful Mind” level, INSANE plot and dissertation?
  • You don’t know me. You don’t know anyone that you don’t know personally, in fact. Remember that we’re all human. And try to be better. 
  • At, you know, being a HUMAN too. (sic).’

The actress revealed this is not the first time the ‘haters’ have insulted her and she admitted she is used to the spiteful remarks as she doesn’t consider their comments to be ‘original’.

After a one-tweet #DefendDACA interlude, she added: ‘And yes, for those asking. It’s literally EVERY GD second of EVERY GD day. So haters? You’re not even original. I’ve heard it all!’

And Sophia’s One Tree Hill co-star Hilarie Burton – who portrayed Peyton Sawyer in the series – has supported her colleague.  She replied to Sophia’s rant saying: ‘PREACH Sis!!!! You’re a GD diamond!’

The actress shot to fame portraying Brooke Davis in One Tree Hill from 2003 to 2012. The popular show followed the lives of high school students living in North Carolina.  One Tree Hill boasted a cast that included Bethany Joy Lenz, James Lafferty, Lee Norris, and it made its star Chad Michael Murray a household name.  Sophia’s gone on to star on Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, Chicago P.D., while Hilarie has appeared in Lethal Weapon, Extant, and Hostages.

The actress tied the knot with her screen love interest Chad Michael Murray, 32, in Santa Monica, California, in April 2005, announcing their separation just five months later. The former couple were granted a divorce in December 2006, with Sophia later saying: ‘It devastates me now that I have been reduced to a Hollywood statistic – another joke marriage.  I never expected to be married more than once… because I knew what I was getting into and will always believe in love.’
