Harvey Weinstein: Flash Point for Hollywood and DOD/CIA Hypocrisy!
At a time when our collective attention should be concentrated on issues of increasing wars and badly needed disaster-relief for the fires and floods, the NY Times has decided to focus its narratives on the misogynist behaviors of Harvey Weinstein, former CEO of Miramax Films.
As I have repeatedly stated, nothing in our MSM or USG happens by accident. I find it interesting that just about the time that the Mandalay false flag had transpired, Harvey’s misogynist past unexpectedly rises to the forefront of our collective concerns. The NY Times and most of Hollywood elite were cognizant of his boorish behavior.
I knew Harvey from one of my former incarnations as an Executive Producer of 4hour TV miniseries shown on both NBC and ABC networks. Harvey is a transparent Flushing NY boorish Jew whose parents were in the diamond industry. When he and I did some business together, Weinstein was delighted to tell me in detail how proud he was of his Flushing heritage. I had to agree that he and his quieter, more distinguished brother, Bob Weinstein, built a powerhouse of a film company called Miramax Films. Harvey pointed out the irony that two boys from Flushing with limited higher education could produce such esoteric Oscar Winners as:
- “Sex, Lies, and Videotapes”
- “The Crying Game”
- “The English Patient”
- “Good Will Hunting”.
In the end, I felt that Miramax was too sophisticated a studio to produce my Tom Clancy’s Op Center/Net Force series. I needed something along the lines of ABC or NBC. We parted company, and I never saw him again. I knew nothing about his sexual harassments in Hollywood. However, I was not surprised to learn that he had acted out his misogyny.
Hollywood Proper was infested with incest, depravity, sexual harassment, sexual aberrations and worst of all, ‘pedophilia’. Pedophilia was endemic to the industry including Disney Studios where child actors were at a premium [read Musketeers].
Child actors Corey Feldman and Elijah Woods have recently come out, as well as Brad Pitt, to denounce the full spectrum of pedophilia nesting comfortably within the hierarchy of the Hollywood elite. Yet, it seems as if no one is bold enough to name names.
I would name them if I had had any experience with that on my set. I ran a very tight production company consisting of about 132 people and 22 Unions. For the most part, I found everyone to be cordial, exceedingly professional, and very courteous. Most of my people were duly informed that I would not tolerate sex, drugs or anything else that might impede the shooting of the film. Let me assure even in the best of time, it is very difficult to write a good script and realized it through the tedious process of pre- and post-production.
No let me make the real point of this blog: the real whores and miscreants of Hollywood are none other than our own military, SEAL Teams, FBI, and the CIA. Far worse than Harvey’s transgressions, are the lies and distorted images that are propagated by our own USG at our own taxpayer expense. The USG tried to portray the false rectitude and non-existent capability of the FBI, CIA and the different branches of our bloated DOD bureaucracy.
In “Charlie Wilson’s War” [Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts], the CIA literally set up an office in Hollywood to control this film that lauded the imaginary exploits of this defunct agency. Yet, the most egregious example of CIA intervention and deceptive journalism was the film: “Zero Dark Thirty”. It was written by Mark Boal and produced/directed by the once very talented, Kathryn Bigelow. No film could have been further from the truth than this piece of crap dictated by none other than the DCI John Brennan [catholic cum Muslim]. Brennan “whored” Kathryn and Mark to glorify the non-existent exploits of the incredibly unimpressive self-aggrandizing, SEAL Teams. Every time they were supposed to be on a ‘hush-hush’ mission, the hardback novel was already written before the non-existent exploit was supposedly completed.
The film was a concocted fairy tale of how the CIA and the SEALS hunted for Osama bin Laden. Too bad that Osama was already dead more than ten years prior. That story like the participants in real life was a product of the Obama/Clinton/Brennan/SEAL team B.S.division of history and storytelling.
On the military side, no admiral nor general could run faster to the newspapers and movie studios then Admiral William H. McRaven. In principle he headed up the presumably prestigious SEAL Team from August 8,2011 till August 28,2014. He was awarded so many stars and promotions that I became dizzy just reading the list of nonsensical medals in a time of highly contrived terrorist wars.
McRaven finally was rewarded for this “high level bullshit” by becoming the Chancellor of the University of Texas System. So much for higher education!
I will admit that the US military helped Tom Clancy in the making of the following movies:
- Hunt for Red October
- Patriot Games
- Clear and Present Danger
- The Sum of All Fears.
Although many of those books were based on my own professional experiences overseas as a ‘Jack Ryan type’ of character, I had nothing to do with the making of those films.
One can conclude that the Harvey Weinstein situ also serves one more important point:
Hollywood as we have known it is dying… if not already dead. The big studios and the accompanying gays, lesbians, bisexuals, pedophiliacs, actors, producers, screenwriters are all becoming moribund, if not irrelevant. Harvey’s exegesis marks the end of not only the movies but also network TV.
In its place is the rise of the internet and NETFLIX, Amazon etc. Such entities anticipated the trend of binge-watching with unknown stars and original storylines, suited mainly for the millennials. Now the five to ten minute internet videos have co-opted the multibillion dollar big-bang flops of yesteryears.
The intelligent movie star Liv Ullman (daughter of a Harvard professor) said the following:
“Hollywood is loneliness beside the swimming pool.”
….And the pool is now empty!
