PopZette Staff – Things went off the rails in court on Friday when Arthur Aidala, one of Weinstein’s attorneys, filed an unprecedented motion claiming that potential jurors have not been able to speak freely during the screening process due to the international media coverage on this case, according to USA Today.
This motion was particularly surprising given the fact that the jury selection process is already more than halfway complete, which led some to think that Aidala was just trying to stall for time.
“Most people do not speak in front of international media,” Aidala told Judge James Burke. Continue reading “Harvey Weinstein Trial Goes Off the Rails [Video]”
Tiffany FitzHenry – Today Harvey Weinstein pleaded not guilty to a new indictment that includes revised charges of predatory sexual assault. The rape trial had been set to begin Sept 9th, however this new development has caused the judge to delay the start of his trial until early next year.
The prosecution would like Actress Annabella Sciorra to be witness at Weinstein’s rape trial.
Sciorra said Harvey Weinstein violently raped her in the early 1990s. The incident is outside the statute of limitations for prosecution, but she is willing to tell her story at the trial to help bring Weinstein to justice. Continue reading “Weinstein in Handcuffs”
Niamh Harris – Harvey Weinstein has been charged with rape, sex abuse and other sexual offences against two women.
The disgraced movie producer handed himself in to the New York police department on Friday.
Weinstein, who has previously denied all accusations, was charged with four offences, following months of sexual abuse allegations.
A statement from the NYPD said Mr Weinstein “was arrested, processed and charged with rape, criminal sex act, sex abuse and sexual misconduct for incidents involving two separate women”.
More than 70 women have publicly accused the film producer of sexual misconduct, including rape.
The Telegraph reports: Weinstein, 66, arrived at the NYPD 1st precinct, in the TriBeCa district of Manhattan, at 7:20am, walking through a thick scrum of photographers and reporters held back by metal barriers. Continue reading “Harvey Weinstein Charged With Rape & Sex Abuse”
Shorty Dawkins – In Part 1 of this series on Draining the Swamp, my main focus was on the NFL, with its protesters disrespecting the National Anthem, and by extension our flag, our military and our Republic.
Part 2 focused on a speech George W. Bush gave, in which he said: “We cannot wish globalism away,” which, since he is a committed Globalist, he would not want to happen. I also talked of the Independence Movement in Catalonia, as an example of the desire for less concentration of power, and more local control. In other words decentralization, which is the opposite of globalism.
Included in Part 2 was a video done by Project Veritas, showing the complete hypocrisy and deception of the New York Times. Continue reading “Draining the Swamp – Part III – Hollywood”
Charles Hugh Smith – To those of us who understand the entire status quo is rotten and corrupt to its core, the confidence of each ideological camp that their side will emerge unscathed by investigation is a source of amusement. The fake-progressives (fake because these so-called “progressives” support Imperial over-reach and a status quo whose only possible output is soaring wealth and income inequality) are confident that a “smoking gun” of corruption will deliver their most fervent dream, the impeachment of President Trump, while Trump supporters are equally confident there is no “smoking gun.”
One camp is confident that the wily Clintons and their army of enablers, from former FBI Director Comey on down, will finally be brought to long-evaded justice for their various perfections of corruption and collusion: pay to play, and so on. Continue reading “Which Rotten Fruit Falls First?”
