My Unique Take on the Fall of Harveywood (Plus a Claire McCaskill Cameo)

14 11 2017

Los Angeles

Harv was doing the ole sexual harassment thing for decades, he now admits. And he did it to some A-listers, including Ashley Judd, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie.

So why didn’t any of his victims squeal while it was happening? Why did it take him outing himself, (possibly to soften the blow of what he knew was his own brother going public, which would be ironic because we later found out his brother was part of the same swamp), after all these years and decades?

And also, pray, Harv, what does Wayne LaPierre have to do with any of this, or even just the price of bread? That would be just as silly as me blaming Gloria Steinem for my getting hit by a car.

The more interesting subplot here is what it took to keep all his victims quiet all these years, the coordinated network of threats, blackmail and intimidation. Start digging into that, and you’ll wind up knocking your shovel into one Federal felony after another after another. Yes, the media which he either owned, bought, started or leveraged, and his good relationships with (((other friendly sources))) that he didn’t actually have any control over, helped sustain his image for a long time and precluded any of this busting out wide open long before it did. However, that can only get you so far. It’s really not possible to cover this kind of thing up as well as he and (((his cronies))) did for as long as they did without busting through a lot of pages of the U.S.C., and by that, I don’t mean the University of Southern California film and movie major program.

To repeat, the cover up is always worse than the crime, especially in this case, because the “crime” is probably not actually a crime.  If you want to see Harv in Club Fed, that’s where you’ll have to look, the cover up.  Especially since the women in this case aren’t exactly pure innocent goody two shoes primae donnae victims here, because women tend to throw themselves at high status men.  Or, alternatively, the women who wish they could throw themselves at high status men but high status men aren’t interested in them promptly run to internet clickholes and kvetch about sumtin’ sumtin’ social justice.

Footnote 1:  The #MeToo hashtagapalooza all over the Tweeter that happened coincidentally in the direct aftermath of L’Affaire Weinstein breaking out I think is not a timing coincidence.  I happen to think it was a manufactured PR stunt/diversion on the part of Harv’s surrogates or fellow travelers to try to fluff up the frequency of professional sexual harassment in order to make Harv seem “not so bad.”  If you ever watched Billy Madison, then you’ll remember this part, which should drive the analogy home.  It’s also why, as any good red pilled brain could have predicted, that Official Feminism is trying to distract us from the bad actor of a Hollywood Jew who unloads truckloads of money on leftist causes and Democrat politicians and trying to pawn this off on all men, one clickbait article on a clickhole-left website suggested that men need a curfew.

Footnote 2:  Which is why I think that everyone is all of a sudden dropping all these dimes, almost all of them are being dropped on libs/Democrats.  This article is at least by its title and beginning about Jackie Speier, of Leo Ryan/Jim Jones/Jonestown fame, but you’ll see that our very own Claire McCaskill makes a cameo appearance.  In it, she says that “when she was a young state legislator in her twenties, she asked the speaker of the Missouri House of Representatives for advice on getting her first bill out of committee,” and after that, said Speaker’s answer involved knee pads.  Now, C-McC was in the State House from January 1983 to January 1989, and she turned 30 on July 24, 1983, so it was only during the first year’s regular session of her first term that she was both in her twenties and in the State House.  Which means that if her memory is accurate, the incident happened some time between January 1 and May 31, 1983.  Precisely speaking, that doesn’t matter, because the House Speaker for the entirety of her State House service was Bob Griffin, who also happens to be the longest tenured House Speaker in state history (1981-95), and unless term limits are repealed, he’ll have that record forever.  Of course, you all remember what happened with Griffin at the end of his career which both caused its ending and drew the interest of Federal prosecutors.  He was actually the second State House Speaker of a succession of three that the Feds nailed, two before Griffin was Richard Rabbitt, whom the Feds sent up the river in 1977.  Anyway, back to the subject, this means that Claire just dropped the dime on Bob Griffin.

Footnote 3:  Harv wanted to buy Strolling Bone magazine?  If that would have actually happened…oh boy…Fall 2017 would have been the season of a million self-writing jokes.  Haven Monahan would have been the most confused non-existing person in the world.

Missouri’s Loosey Goosey Texting While Driving Laws

13 11 2017

Jefferson City

I noticed in Norm’s posts here, and also the comments written below them, during my involuntary sojourn and unwanted vacation, that there has been some discussion about the curious feature of Missouri law that is relevant to the reason for my sojourn, that texting/cell phone usage while driving, is only a crime for those under the age of 21, which is why my “assailant” (age 30) cannot possibly be charged with any crime. What I did not read is that any of you discussing it actually know why it is that way, why it’s not a crime for everyone, only for under 21s.

I happen to know the reason, and owning to one of my professional pursuits of the recent past, I know the reason straight from the horse’s mouths. From some of the the state legislators who voted for the law to be that way and some of the staffers who drafted it that way.

Virtually all of Missouri’s state level elected politicians and their staffers and lobbyists are at least 21 years old. And they have the habit of wanting to be in constant communication with other people. Politicians and political types being what they are.

The under-21 thing is a way for the politicians and political types to pretend for outward consumption that they’re doing something about texting while driving, while creating a big carve-out for themselves. Remember, 18-20 year olds are a political non-entity, so there are no political consequences or blowback for picking on them.  For my money, it’s political bullying, pawning off all the blame for a thing on people who legally and technically can be held responsible for doing it, but don’t have the ability to organize serious political resistance to the political fraudulence and double standard of the paradigm.

The political winds which will probably blow all that away and eventually result in this prohibition being age all-encompassing: The insurance industry. Remember, the insurance industry is in pretty tight with the Republican Party, and guess which party owns Missouri state politics at present. Insurance is going to get tired of cutting big payouts to the victims of texting while driving, such as the one I know I’ll soon get, and they’ll crack the whip.

Beyond that, I think the even more fundamental disease that society needs to address is what underlies texting while driving or phone usage while driving, that is, the desire that people have to be constantly connected with everyone and every thing else, and the desire that people have to be in constant communication with everyone else, and the desire that people have for every person including themselves to be pervasively and constantly and universally available to everyone else.

Controversy over transgender inmate in Ste. Genevieve County

An investigation is underway at a southeast Missouri jail over a transgender inmate after complaints emerged about inappropriate contact.

This came after April Chambers of St. Louis said her daughter, who is also an inmate at the Ste. Genevieve County Sheriff’s Office and Detention Center, called home to tell her all about it.

“She said, ‘They put a man in here with us,’” Chambers said.

“I said, ‘What do you mean they put a man there?’ She said, ‘He looks like a woman in the face but, he’s having sex with the girls in here.’”

The sheriff’s office said as soon as the office heard about the incident, authorities took steps to separate the transgender individual and the female inmates.

But Chambers said she’s wondering how this could have happened in the first place.

First off, April Chambers is a black woman, and her daughter is also presumably black herself.  So I wonder how it came to be that she ended up in the pokey down in Ste. Gen.

Now, as for “how this could have happened in the first place” — It’s called World War T.

That said, Ste. Gen County is right next to Jefferson County, and Jefferson County has our Lila.  (Here, here, here and here).  Which means that maybe one day, JCSO will have to arrest our Lila.  Oh Puggg…

Speaking of WWT, there’s more news on that front today.  The sort that sorta makes the “World War” figure of speech almost literally true.  Of course, this should not be a surprise, even in the Era of the OCGE, because our OCGE is down with LGBTQetc and the Genderbread Person all the way.  Remember, forget about the culture wars, or something like that.  Which means, ladies, don’t ever drop the soap.

If they had brains, they’d truly be dangerous.

But thankfully, they’re not that dangerous.

NAACP, opponents protest Missouri discrimination bill

Missouri members of the NAACP and others are rallying against legislation to make it more difficult to sue for discrimination.

Roughly 40 people protested Tuesday at the Capitol and taped opposition notes outside Gov. Eric Greitens’ office. The bill is pending on Greitens’ desk. The Republican governor has not said if he’ll allow the bill to become law or veto it.

In part because of the bill, the state NAACP issued an advisory telling travelers to be careful while in the state because of a danger that civil rights won’t be respected.

That travel advisory is not strong enough.  It should indicate that the whole state of Missouri is a dystopian hellhole for black people.  People in South Carolina are still wishing that the NAACP boycott of their state still existed.

What the NAACP is really grinding over is that since the bill would make it more difficult even to file some discrimination lawsuits, this means the NAACP-LDF won’t be able to submit billable hours to the state.





SCOTUS Finds For Trinity Lutheran

I wrote about it back in April, and today, SCOTUS saw it my way.

The way the majority opinion was written, this is not a ruling that will have a long shadow.  Which means it won’t nail down a specific paradigm on these kinds of establishmentarian-funding questions that exist in the margins of church-state matters.  It is only a decision on this particular case in this particular time in this particular jurisdiction in these particular circumstances.
