Although the news is from 1998, I only just discovered it.

Reporting for the UK Independent on November 15, 1998, John Lichfield wrote about a trial “this week” in a criminal court in Paris, of the operators of an international “call-girl” agency that specialized in wealthy, high-profile clients.

The trial uncovered the brutal methods the agency used to snare young women, “some as young as 15”. The French Brigade de Repression de Proxenetisme (the equivalent of the Vice Squad) traced 89 young women who said they had been tricked or sometimes physically constrained by the agency into working for them. The girls were sometimes “sold on like cattle” to other call-girl agencies.

The agency’s files of clients’ names seized by the police are said to include many well-known members of the sports and show-business jet-set on both sides of the Atlantic, Arab princes, as well as two senior French center-right politicians.

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….

De Niro, despite a much publicised ‘arrest’ in Paris while filming a movie earlier this year, was questioned only as a witness and occasional client of the network’s prostitutes. He is suing the investigating magistrate, Frederic N’Guyen Duc Quang, following his highly publicised interrogation; the actor’s lawyers accuse the investigator of deliberate publicity-seeking.”

The growing list of Hollyweird hypocrites to boycott

As if you didn’t already boycott Hollyweirdos, here’s a list of those who think their opinion matters to you. Don’t waste your money on their products.
From Cosmopolitan, a list of Hollywood folk who despise Trump:

Schumer trying to make all people happy


Amy Schumer
My act will change because I’ll need to learn to speak Spanish because I will move to Spain, or somewhere. It’s beyond my comprehension if Trump won. It’s too crazy.” — Schumer on BBC’s Newsnight, a little over a month before her recent show in Tampa, where 200 people walked out after she called Trump an “orange, sexual assaulting, fake-college-starting monster.” Later Schumer, a survivor of sexual assault, asked the audience, “You know what I love? A famous guy that will just take me furniture shopping and just straight up grab my pussy.”
(Schumer later offered a sarcastic apology, saying: “Dearest Tampa, I’m sorry you didn’t want me, a comedian who talks about what she believes in, to mention the biggest thing going on in our country right now,” Schumer said reading the letter, noted People. “How could I think it was okay to spend five minutes having a peaceful conversation with someone with different views?
“After the show, I want you to know that I will go straight to a rehab facility that will teach me how to make all people happy. Both the rich, entitled, white people who are gonna vote for him and the very poor people — who’ve been tricked into it,” she added.
Schumer concluded: “… I shouldn’t have said that he was an orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster. Shouldn’t have said that. I will never again say that he is an orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster.”)

Handler not playing with a full deck of cards


“It’s kind of great to have a person like that represent everything that’s wrong in the world. It’s always a good thing to look at somebody and say, ’That’s the worst thing that could happen.’ I think we should keep [Trump] in the spotlight— not as a president, obviously.” — Chelsea Handler at Variety’s Entertainment and Tech Summit, months after posting her naked body to Instagram in protest against Trump and admitting on Live With Kelly and Michael that she “bought a house in another country just in case” Trump wins.
(The worst thing that could happen? Being “grateful” for being able to safely abort the two babies you conceived as a teen. From CNN:
At 16, “I hated my parents and I was having unprotected sex with my boyfriend, who was not someone I should’ve been having sex with in the first place, never mind unprotected sex,” she said.
I wasn’t really playing with a full deck of cards, and when I got pregnant I just thought, Why not? I can have a baby,” she recalled. “Maybe I’ll have twins and give them rhyming names!” Instead, Handler said, her parents took her to Planned Parenthood and she had an abortion.
But that didn’t stop her from getting pregnant again that same year by the same boyfriend, she wrote. “Getting unintentionally pregnant more than once is irresponsible, but it’s still necessary to make a thoughtful decision,” Handler said. “We all make mistakes all the time.”)

Damon thinking deeply about gun control


“[Trump] makes me nervous… There’s no way we can let this guy be the [president]. To let that dude have the nuclear football, are you kidding me? That’s dangerous. He’s impulsive and rash, and doesn’t seem to think deeply about too many things.” — Matt Damon on ABC’s Popcorn With Peter Travers. Damon’s feelings on Trump were made evident nearly a year earlier in an interview with a Spanish news agency when he called Trumps’ speech “xenophobic,” “dehumanizing” and “disgusting.”
(This from an actor who is anti-Second Amendment. On a promotional tour for his gun-heavy action series Bourne, he said, “It’s wonderful what Australia did because you guys haven’t had a mass shooting since you went, ‘No, we’re going to be sensible about this.’ And nobody’s rights have been infringed, you guys are fine. I wish we could be sensible like that but I don’t think that’s going to happen in my lifetime.”)
Margaret Cho

Just the nastiest. @realDonaldTrump, you literally have no moral fiber. You’re like no ply toilet paper. Just trash.” — Margaret Cho in a tweet.
Amber Rose

Jesus Christ, I can’t even think about it! I’m moving, I’m out! I can’t. And I am taking my son with me! I would be devastated, to be honest with you!” — Amber Rose discussing the possibility of Trump becoming president in an US Weekly interview.

“No one living in this century should stand behind so much ignorance.” — Shakira in a tweet just a few weeks after Trump characterized Mexican immigrants to the US as “rapists” and criminals.

“He’s just an opportunist. Now he’s a fascist; a xenophobic fascist.” — George Clooney in an interview with British newspaper The Guardian. A few months later, Clooney, who’s publically a Clinton supporter, said, “There is not going to be a President Donald Trump. Fear is not going to drive our country.”
(George and his wife Amal fully support Merkel’s open-door policy towards refugees. Yet how many refugees have they accepted into their 30-room mansion? A big fat zero. Hypocrites.)

What I don’t think [Trump] understands and what people don’t understand is words create emotional poison. That’s what they do, they create emotional poison. Hitler moved a nation with words, just words. So you have to expect this backlash. If you say something like that, as he has said, you must expect a backlash.” — Eva Longoria, who almost a year later delivered an impassioned speech at the DNC in which she said that Trump’s comments insult American families like hers.
(This from a women who, as an Obama campaign co-chair, retweeted this: Women, minorities ‘stupid’ to vote for ‘racist/misogynistic’ Romney. She later deleted that tweet.)
Lena Dunham

I know a lot of people have been threatening to [move to Canada], but I really will. I know a lovely place in Vancouver and I can get my work done from there.” — Lena Dunham at the Matrix Awards, adding another comment to her long list of anti-Trump sentiments. The ’Girls’ actress is a staunch Clinton supporter and has been very vocal about Trump’s treatment of women on Twitter and other platforms.

“He’s so Patty McCormack: consummate liar, doesn’t care who she hurts, insane; a sociopathic narcissist. I just wish he’d fall off the face of the Earth.” — Cher in a speech at a Hillary Clinton fundraiser, in which she also compared the candidate to Stalin and Hitler and said, “I just think he’s a fucking idiot.” The Goddess of Pop has also made her anti-Trump stance evident on Twitter with comments like “dump Trump,” “support him!? I’d rather chew glass,” “let’s throw Trump in a volcano,” and “If he were to be elected, I’m moving to Jupiter.

Depp the accused domestic abuser and his bullied ex-wife


“If Donald Trump is elected president of the United States in a kind of historical way, it’s exciting because we will see the actual last president of the United States. It just won’t work after that.” — Johnny Depp, just a few months after he called the Republican candidate a “brat” who works through “bullydom.”
(This comes from a man who was accused of domestic violence by his former wife Amber Heard. They settled out of court claiming, “their “relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love. Neither party has made false accusations for financial gain. There was never any intent of physical or emotional harm.” Heard donated her $7 million proceeds from the divorce to charity.)

“He reminds me of a drunk uncle at a wedding, who gets up and starts talking and just loves the crowd and just goes on and on and on and says whatever he can to get a reaction. He’s like a figure from a Kurt Vonnegut novel; I can’t even address him seriously.” — Susan Sarandon when introducing Bernie Sanders at a rally in January.
Robert De Niro

De Niro didn’t do his homework


He’s so blatantly stupid. He’s a punk, he’s a dog, he’s a pig, he’s a con — a bullshit artist. A mutt who doesn’t know what he’s talking about, doesn’t do his homework, doesn’t care, thinks he’s gaming society, doesn’t pay his taxes. He’s an idiot.” — Robert De Niro in a video released through Anonymous Content and their voteyourfuture.us campaign. The actor continues, referring to Trump as “this fool,” “this bozo,” and saying, ” “He talks about how he wants to punch people in the face. Well, I’d like to punch him in the face.”
(This coming from an actor who never graduated from high school.)

Actor Robert De Niro threatens violence against Trump

liberal tolerance
In a video that aired yesterday on Fox TV’s “The [Megyn] Kelly File,” actor Robert De Niro lashed out at Donald Trump, saying he’d “like to punch him in the face.”
The 73-year-old actor also calls Trump many invectives: “blatantly stupid,” “a punk,” “a dog,” “a pig,” “a con,” “a mutt,” “a bullshit artist,” and “an idiot”.
As reported by Ted Johnson for Variety, Oct. 7, 2016:

De Niro’s remarks came in a video produced by Anonymous Content, which has been making a series of short interviews for a voter initiative called #VoteYourFuture. The director of De Niro’s video, Tom McCarthy, asked him, “What do you care about?”
De Niro’s anti-Trump remarks were so emphatic that the producers concluded that it could not be part of the campaign, which is non-partisan. But it was given to Kelly’s show for airing and publicists for the production firm released it to the media on Friday.

Right-Left Establishment Go After Trump. Damage Inflicted?


Lately, one after another establishment personality are piling on Donald Trump.
First, we have the predictable trolls on the Left, like the man whose real name isn’t Jon Stewart but Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz. (See Stewart mock Trump on HuffPo here.) Huffington Post even has an entire webpage devoted to all the spoofs (“comedy”) that were “inspired” by Trump since the 1980s.
Entertainer Chris Rock, on the Oprah Winfrey show, compared Trump and the Birthers not just to spoiled, immature children, but said they “are possessed by the devil.”
Actor-comedian Bill Cosby said Trump “is full of it” and should just “run or shut up.”
Even actor Robert De Niro, another Democrat, piled on by calling Trump “crazy,” “a big hustle” and “a car salesman” for dare asking questions about Obama’s birth certificate. To which Trump gave this response in an appearance on Fox & Friends: “I like [De Niro’s] acting, but in terms of when I watch him doing interviews and various other things, we’re not dealing with Albert Einstein.”
But it’s not just the Left who feel threatened by a possible Trump run for the presidency. On the other side of the partisan spectrum, one GOP establishment elite after another are also piling on.
Last week, GOP strategist Karl Rove called Trump the “Al Sharpton of the Republican party” and said this about Trump calling attention to Obama’s eligibility: “His full embrace of the birther issue means that he’s off there in the nutty right and is now an inconsequential candidate.” To which, Trump gave this quick and apt riposte: “Bush finished so weak that we ended up getting Obama. [Rove] ran the man [Bush] into the ground. And the more I see about Karl Rove, the more I realize: maybe it wasn’t completely Bush’s fault.”
Then conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer added his two cents. In his column for the Washington Post on April 21, 2011, Krauthammer wrote this about Trump:

“He’s not a candidate, he’s a spectacle. He’s also not a conservative. With a wink and a smile, Muhammad Ali showed that self-promoting obnoxiousness could be charming. Trump shows that it can be merely vulgar. A provocateur and a clown, the Republicans’ Al Sharpton. The Lions have a better chance of winning the Super Bowl.”

Conservative columnist Michelle Malkin took a shot too. In her op/ed for Investor’s Business Daily on April 25, 2011, Malkin called Trump “no more a standard-bearer of conservative values, limited government and constitutional principles than the cast of ‘Jersey Shore’.”
This morning it’s another conservative pundit’s turn. Over at National Review, Thomas Sowell published “Obama’s Trump Card, The damage the Donald can do,” arguing that if Trump runs he will likely lose, but in the process will badly hobble the GOP field, like Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee. And if the unthinkable happens, If Trump somehow wins the nomination, that will guarantee Obama’s reelection.
All these hits on Trump from both the left and the right appear to have inflicted damage.
A new USA Today/Gallup poll finds 50% of Americans, including 31% of Republicans, saying Trump would make a “poor” or “terrible” president. 63% of Americans, including 46% of Republicans, say they definitely will not vote for Trump for president. In comparison, 46% of Americans say they definitely will not vote for Obama in 2012.
What is intriguing is that the poll found that it’s not the birther issue that’s hurting Trump because support from the “birthers” is stronger for Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney. The poll also found that the number of Americans who believe Obama definitely was born in America has dwindled to 38%.
John Romano of the blog, Yes, But, However, has this trenchant observation about Trump:

The last politician that the Democratic party and the GOP establishment partnered to destroy was Sarah Palin. In that instance, the destruction politically was complete…. Ms. Palin is DOA at the ballot box in the short term if not forever.

The main way that the unlikely coalition destroys outspoken or non-establishment Republicans or conservative ideas is to make supporting the idea or candidate carry an element of shame with it. A great example of this is when the media aligned with the Democratic party accuses someone or a group of racism without any concrete evidence. This trick was used with only mixed results on the Tea Party. Sure, the Tea Party denizens are mostly white, but so was John Stewart’s “Rally to Restore Obama’s Image”…. Thanks to the internet and media rabble-rousers like Andrew Breitbart, James O’Keefe and others, this weapon is less effective….

Trump has been in the media for over twenty years. to suddenly call him a racist would be tough. When the “Donald” said he had great relations “with the blacks” two weeks ago, it was almost enough for the media to begin its tar and feather act, but it didn’t catch on. That tells you something. Trump will have to foul up big time on the race issue for the media to use it.

Another weapon in the arsenal of political destruction is to have entertainment icons knock an idea or personality. Sounds pedestrian, but it is usually very effective. We saw this with Tina Fey’s dead-on impersonation of Sarah Palin. Do a poll today and most people will tell you that it was the “idiot” Sarah Palin who said she saw “Russia from my house”. It was Tina Fey on NBC’s Saturday Night Live. Ms. Palin said, correctly, that “you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska.” Never let the facts get in the way of a good political beating.

Doing the same kind of thing to Donald Trump is a near impossibility which puts both ends of the destroy Trump camp in a pickle. He is a caricature of a caricature of himself. The “Donald” has lived his life in the press. Every odd or bold statement, marital foible, triumph and failure has been in the New York and national press for over 20 years. The man is an open, highly entertaining, book. Instead the tack so far is to play up celebrities like Jerry Seinfeld and Robert Deniro taking it to Trump. It may work, but I doubt it. Look for Lady Gaga to opine about Mr. Trump at some point in the near future (I’m not kidding). Without a Tina Fey moment, the whole exercise is futile. Although, SNL hasn’t taken a real shot at Mr. Trump yet. We shall see….

Whatever happens with Mr. Trump’s bid, a new paradigm is forming. The American people are thirsting for a leader with the brass cojones that characterizes both the Palin and Trump identity. Where is 2012 right now? The Karl Roves of the world think they are saving the republic by pushing for a mealy-mouthed devout Christian for the GOP. The Democratic party thinks that this country belongs to them and that we all just live in it. But the day is coming when a genuine leader from outside the establishment will withstand the media and personal onslaught from the left and right. Is that person Donald Trump? It may very well be.”
