But the friends are now nowhere to be seen, of course. As to the women who have accused her of these crimes, you know, I think what's interesting is how they are going to now be torn apart by Maxwell's lawyers. You know, they're going to be their credibility is going to be undermined at any point. At every point, sorry, as money grabbers, they're going to call a false memory expert a woman very well known in a miracle called professor Elizabeth Loftus. You know, she testified at the trial of Jeffrey Epstein not Jeffrey Epstein Harvey Weinstein easily confused sometimes and O. J. Simpson. And she is going to be talking about how women and people can develop false memories. And so for the accusers now, the next 6 weeks are going to be an incredibly challenging time. And in terms of the U.S. justice system as well. I mean, it's just worth reflecting on, of course, we're at the beginning of this, but it is different. There are differences to it, and also there's been a much made from very well at the beginning of a trial. There'll be a jury and all of that. So it's a careful of that in mindful of that. But of course, she's been in prison for some time and there's been quite a lot of detail about the conditions of that and how that differs and also the length of sentences sometimes in comparison to the UK. So I think that there's some differences there aren't there as well. Yeah, absolutely. And look, if she is found guilty and if this does not go her way, she will be in prison for the rest of her life. She'll turn 60 on Christmas Day. I do, by the way, think about what her 60th would have been like, had her life gone in a different direction kind of glittering party on a super yacht. But now it's almost inevitable. The trial will still be going on. And she will still be behind bars. But, you know, the jury were asked if they had strong views about people who led luxurious lifestyles. They were also asked whether they had expressed support for the me too movement in the past.

Interview With Pulitzer Prize Winning Author, Ronan Farrow
"I go backwards and forwards on the first question of wearing and when will you happiest. Because we're so encouraged to be happy all the time rather than the place that we're headed. I don't think that's a well not to be terribly pedantic right out of the gate but you know what is happiness is what you come very quickly and answering this question rided any way and i also found it. Surprisingly hard to answer by any metric that there are a lot of professional moments of fulfillment that came to mind as the answers. Getting a tape of harvey weinstein trying to entrap a woman. After months and months of trying. To get that those are obviously moments of fulfillment of kind. But then i think was a happy then because those high points were also marked by a lot of stress and can also be frankly kind of scary. I mean i think both on a level that any writer would relate to where. You're in the zone crafting a scene but also you're on a terrifying deadline and stressful. And you're afraid you're going to fail. And there's a lot riding on anything particularly when it's investigative reporting and in ways that are unique to my kind of work which is very combative in some ways and you know there are sometimes private. Investigators hired to follow me around and smear me in various ways so those moments of the film and are often entwined with ryan easy. And i don't know of happiness quite captures what those moments our exclusive. No i agree. It is part of the satisfaction of doing an incredibly hard job. That is dangerous and frightening at times but also incredibly necessary and then that paying off. I think there are ways in which that's a healthy happiness. If you were doing something whatever your profession is that you feel is contributing in positive way to other people's lives. That's a great thing to nurturing yourself. On the other hand that can take a lot of unhealthy forms. Yeah i i know and really respect a lot of great war reporters who famously do get high off of being in conflict zones and during time spent in in some of those types of places you encounter a lot of those people who are in it maybe for all the right reasons but also i think you know if they were to search themselves on a personal level. It's probably not the healthiest thing that they need to be in those high octane places all the time so is that happiness or is that kind of getting a certain kind of high again regardless of how noble the intentions
Sexual Harassment Claims Against New York Gov. Cuomo: What We Know So Far
"I Way didn't even need to get to this point with Andrew Cuomo to realize that he needs to resign and he needs to go. This started way back in this one has nothing to do with sexual assault rustling 105 50 K of why I appreciate you. Being with us. This is an absolute I would say It's a shock, but it can't be because the guys is too greasy punk, and it's not really surprising learning the tactics that him and his staff used. To essentially eliminate any any threat of a claim. The first woman who came out and accused Cuomo of sexual harassment was back in December. It was done on Twitter. And the media didn't really jump on. They were like, Well, let's cover this who Let's cover this, which is also a departure from the meat to movement. And if you're looking for signs the Democrats never really cared as a party. About me too. This is more evidence of it. And there was reasons why, you know, going back years. They didn't care about it. Like everybody knew. Harvey Weinstein was a scumbag. Even I knew I didn't even work in Hollywood. But I knew the rumors about Harvey Weinstein. And the fact that the Democrats ignored it because he was a big fundraiser for them. There's pictures of Harvey Weinstein with every prominent Democrat, probably for the last 20 years. Finally, like, Oh, crap. These allegations are bad. There's this public relations campaign to try to make Harvey Weinstein not look as bad as he Woz. That's what Andrew Cuomo's office tried to do, but it's how they did it that Mike was alluding to this is reason enough. Cuomo should resign. So Lindsay Boylan was her name. In December. When the tweets came out with Cuomo's office did is they wrote a letter. And they attached Lindsay Boylan's personnel file to that letter, and they started handing it out to all the news and paper organizations. New York Times Washington Anyone they knew to try to downplay What she did and what she claimed. They said in the letter, which Mr Cuomo The New York Times is reporting helped write weaponizing a claim of sexual harassment for personal political gain or to achieve notoriety cannot be tolerant. Tolerated false claims demean the veracity of credible claims. So he tried to bully the woman by releasing private personnel files to the newspaper hoping the newspaper would go through, like all well, she had a couple of problems. Couple of write ups so we can't take this seriously. Luckily, the newspapers didn't run with it. The fact that this is how politics works is the part that makes you go. Cuomo's a scumbag. Well, he is a scumbag and the personal gain what they were doing, essentially, Woz. Telling the News outlets. That there might be something off. There might be something you'll get pinched with later on, so stay away from the story. I think they went away with it, Not because I mean they didn't run with it, Not because they know he's a scumbag. Everybody does. But the what they realized was oh, with this kind of stuff that we're seeing. You know what? I'm not going to touch that story. That's it is more. I just want to see why a Really do anything else because you know again, it's tough to prove these things, because if you only have one source, and you say it, do you run with it, And then, of course, the second woman came out and in said it after Lindsay wrote more of a detailed description that we talk to you about a few weeks ago, and the second one came out. Then the third woman came up to seven women now that have accused Cuomo of harassment. And there's a whole bunch of other women, a couple of a dozen other women who said they didn't necessary harass me, but he asked inappropriate questions. He touched me all the time, and I didn't really like it. I didn't know who to turn to It's so bad that the fact that there were reports on Cuomo while he was the governor. For these types of things. They went to his senior aides, and they said, Look, this guy's a pain in my butt. He's touching me. He's asking me about sex. It's disgusting. It was never stopped. I mean, what happens in the normal place of business like of I accuse Mike of sexual harassment. I go to HR and I say, Hey, Mike is sexually harassing me. I won't tell him I liked it. Get close. Yeah, I'm just saying, you know. And then there's a process that follows. After that. There's a follow up process. There's you know, investigations that happen if the claims air, credible and serious enough and then it's on your file, and then you get the warning. And, you know, we've known people that have had warnings in their past two from HR. Yes, it's taken very seriously by the by the corporate world. Joe Biden last night was asked if these these allegations are true. Should he resign? Yes. I think you probably end up being prosecuted too Well, okay. A strong stance from President Biden, if if if the investigation is that true, Cuomo responded to that. If you you committed a crime, you can be prosecuted. That's true. But what President Biden said Wasps. We should do an investigation over. I'm looking it up here. Hold on. One thing. I think we figured out. Let me look through my law Stack here, Hank. Thank you. Oh. Sexual assault is a crime. Okay? Yes. Sexual assault still is a crime. So, yes, he could be prosecuted for this. And he should be prosecuted for that. There'd be nothing better for me to

"I thought there is no way his. Pr will allow this. And the picture is actually a picture of Harvey Weinstein. Getting kissed by Oprah Winfrey on one of on the top and then on the bottom it honestly looks like Oprah Winfrey is handing the singer actress Rita Ora over to him and he psyched caressing her arm. And on the top. It says when you have been part of the problem for decades because with Oprah Oprah and him but suddenly they all think you are the solution and then he posted With that the without he wrote. Oh I forgot that's right. You heard the rumors. But he had no idea was actually serially assaulting young starry eyed actresses who in turn had no idea what they were getting into. My Bad Hashtag sanctimonious holywood now. Of course like I said there's long and there's a reason I screen shot at because I knew that's not GonNa last you say you come against Oprah you coming into that golden calf all right that is not gonNA listen. He said quote what I reposted was not an attack on Oprah at all and you guys can't get around it and if one hundred page She just happened to be photographed with the pig in the picture. No what I reposted was commentary on the hypocritical double standard nature and behavior Hollywood. Well that's true. I think he was specifically attacking over there. I don't know how you get around the way you'll present it and she's not that she's God knows her heart into what degree she'd new whatever she knew but he has no. Hey there's a systematic problem and it goes way beyond Weinstein and there's other people that are complicit you know yeah man and and if you guys take a look at that picture you could literally you could just Google search. And maybe Tony can find a link. Just Seal Harvey Weinstein Oprah and you'll find it just go to images you'll find it. You wouldn't want I want you to see so you can see it and you can judge for yourself and not. Just take my word for it because I think it's very clear like I said and he's calling it out and he's in the industry you saying straight up people know about this. Yeah and there's a lot of abuse in the industry people that are in high places There's a lot of claims of abuse or those who have been abused We did a whole video. And you guys can talk about that later if you want. But on the X. men That's free on on our youtube We've done done interviews about the gay agenda so forth and just the the you know the normalization of sexual deviancy and we have to realize. We don't wrestle against flesh and blood a lot of powerful movies out there that are costly. Transforming the way our young people think and they're powerful they come with hundreds of millions of dollars sometimes. Several movies or series of movies will have hundreds of millions dollars put behind them and they're basically propaganda films. You know Hitler had a budget had propaganda films in Nazi Germany. To Make Nazism Look Good. And today we have the x men films for instance were developed the theme of various x men whether discovering their superpowers. You know and it's all it looks really cool at first and so forth and and they discover their superpowers in wiles. This amazing but behind the experts. Movies what they want is they want. Those were seen X. Men. Who are heroes? You know discovering their superpowers? They want to be seen as those were coming out. And as it being an August you gaze coming out of the closet with their superpowers as analogous to homosexual homosexuality fact others one of the movies where one one of these X. men isn't in the military and they specifically I show in the video. They show commentary after they say. Hey don't ask don't tell that's what you say when you know if you're found be gain the military but now this is applied to him discovered a super powers and they admitted that they're doing a little little parable there and it's just interesting gay screenwriter. Dan Harris who wrote the screenplay for x. Men Two with Casey writer Michael Daugherty. He admitted that he sees X-men mutant and the expense struggle for acceptance in society as an August homosexuality. I quote it's become more of a metaphor for sexual identity and orientation. I'm not making this stuff up folks. We have a lot of these exposes. Who hit you right between the eyes? And so you this is satanic propaganda where they're actually making their roic super hours powers mute mutations in the superpowers as to this is to be celebrated a homosexual. He's just like this. If you're almost expect you better than other human beings because you had these superpowers. It's become more a metaphor for sexual identity and orientation because it's more appropriate to look at a person and have to say are you a mutant or can you always look at a person and know that there are mutant just like you can look at a person and know if they're gay x-men director Bryan singer and we didn't expose quite a bit on Bryan singer WHO director movies. Yes movies in the past. He's openly gay is not only directed. Most expert movies in the past but has list is listed among writing credits. As well now singer began his onslaught of the Psyche of American youth. In the first exodus dominant two thousand sear recruited. -Ly recruited openly gay activists actor in Marquette mckellen. Very popular actor played magneto and so forth but mckellen said. I think he expected that I was going to be considered a non posh enough job but he revealed that it was really it was really about lesbian and gay and bisexual transgender people. So he said I thought he was right to I. It's not just a fantasy story. It's a parable because a CO founder of the lgbt. Gay Activist Group stonewall guys so a Keller has further stated quote the producers speaking of the producers quote will tell you one of the demographics that X. Men Appeals to is young as there are enough people in the world who think that the answer to the problem of being. Gay is to be cured of your of your abnormality in other words with the X. minutes not abnormality. It's a wonderful heroic thing and it's interesting because mckellen's because mind rather than view X. men to men being together sexually immoral behavior he wants to portray it as positive mutation like superpowers by the way killing the interview He stayed straight out. He talks about when he goes into I think we play. That might play that clip when he goes into hotel rooms. He sees the Gideon Bible In in hotel rooms because Gideon's have you know just really done a great job of getting bibles and many people have been saved. You read the Scripture Hotel Rooms. He'll go to the portions of the Bible where it condemns homosexuality at who rip out those pages you talked about ripping out the pages of many many bibles video better by the way. Just let me say this on our honest enough to admit that God's word does condemn homosexuality sexual God became a man died of the cross to save homosexuals at all of us because all of us not just homosexuals have a sin problem and Jesus die to pay for the sins. Holy Spirit comes in and changes US and gives us new new a new heart. New DESIRES GIVES US power to overcome. Its sins of the flesh. So we're not picking homosexuality here would just like adultery or just like other sins. What Weinstein was Weistein was doing? This is all condemned and scripture this kind of behavior. A lot of it's been normalized. Just step back man. Twenty thirty years man and the world look differently on these things. But there's been a transformation in the Communal consciousness of the dark world system door. Now these things are accepted. Yeah look at even some of the comedians that are trying to make returns like Eddie Murphy. And a lot of a lot of his. I'd say most of his comedy is completely course and unbelievable but some of that older stuff and I used to watch a lot of stand up comedy and he literally had to come out and be like Oh yeah. Most of my act wouldn't even be able to be done anymore because of some of the you look at things adversely and you look at something like homosexuality and because the Bible is very clear one. It's an unnatural act. It's not how God has made us mocked it as deviant. You know and it's exactly and they used to do that and now there is such a reproach on who would ever even I mean they're they're going back and looking at people's tweets. Were you know Kevin Hart? This comedian said he didn't want to Sunday began. And now it's like. Oh we got it. We got to throw this guy. Cancel him man. GotTa cancel him. It's the whole cancel culture. Yeah and now. Now it's reflected more and more and I mean women are still in a lot of pop. Music they are district is sex toys a lot of rap music still this day. The referred to as hose and they're degenerate. They're just brothers and sisters. Think about this. If you're listening to secular pop and rap music there's costly treating The other sex as though they're avenue to pleasure in yourself rather than those were made to the ends of God that need to be respected and to be treated with dignity. You've got to be careful because your worldview could be jaded yet to my personal opinion is by by based on the word of God. Is that our hearts and our minds should be censored as much as we can in the word of God and making sure. I'm not saying you can have some form of entertainment of what they should. It be contrary they should. It should be blast. Missed a tour. God should be contrary to the word of God. It shouldn't glorify evil now. It's interesting because we need to make sure to get some scriptures out. Don't have much time left as far as you know the Bible says if the foundations are destroyed. What shall the righteous do? We have to get back to the foundation of God's word the Bible says the First Corinthians sixteen thirteen be watchful and stand firm in the faith. Act like men and be strong so many to be men of God be watchful. Stand firm the faith. Act like it goes on to say. Be Strong or be courageous. We'd be courageous enough to stand up for women to protect women to protect children from evil. That all that you do be done love okay. A true man of God if he's going to stand up and be a man of God he's be crazy to walk in love. Paul says that men of God in Timothy are treat their sisters and the Lord. They're still be sisters. Oldest is like mother's younger sisters like sisters. Like your own sister okay. That means you're not going to be viewing them. As in a sexually deviant way you guard them and protect them and encourage them. This is very very important. So it's radical radical Calls in scripture for men to be far different than what we've seen the world ultimate biblical man had brothers and sisters is to become Christ like for brothers and four sisters. We need become more more. Christ like let me give you a few Just a few scriptures to encourage you in because I know we're running out of time but for for men and women of God that would apply. We need immerse ourselves. In God's Word blessed is the man who walks not in the house of the wicked nor says the way of centers or sits. The scars should be inundated by this junk but his delight is the love Lord and on his law. He meditates day and night. He like a tree planted by streams.

Jesus excited and guys The topic at hand that we were going to be discussing get right into We have praised enforced. And we want to share. We'll share them later in the week. But we want to get right into this because we do have Jesus and we do see lock and step. What's going on in the culture and the things that's happening in the culture and we're GonNa talk about those things and say that is a point to these things and recognize that there is no victory outside of Christ and when I look at this small victory that people are talking about a victory for what they're calling the metoo movement. I'm seeing not much of a victory here and the true victory is found in Christ and while it's good when people are brought to justice. I think it'll be really good to discuss a little bit about why it took so long for this to happen I think we're GONNA talk about that at length. And if you guys haven't heard Harvey Weinstein has been found guilty of two counts of sexual assault. I'm going to read a little bit from a CNN article. And then we're going to talk a little bit about Harvey Weinstein in France and the Clinton News Network. Bro Yeah sometimes I will quote from the most liberal of sources of course and you'll notice they are doing a little bit Whitewashing even for Mr Weinstein. It seems like in the beginning says the guilty verdict and Harvey Weinstein Sexual Assault and rape case is being hailed as a turning point in the metoo movement but his attorney says he never had a chance at a fair trial. The disgraced movie mogul was convicted of committing a criminal sex act in the first degree involving one woman and rape in the third degree involving another. He was acquitted of the more serious charges of predatory sexual assault involving the two women and one count of first degree rape quote. This is a big day. This is a new day. Manhattan district attorney Cyrus Vance Junior said. This is the new landscape for survivors of sexual assault in America. I believe and this is a new day. It is a new day because Harvey Weinstein has finally been held accountable for crimes. He committed while we may be excited. Okay and I in terms of justice you guys WanNa see Justice happen especially if women are being sexually assaulted I think that this better speaks to the culture of Hollywood. As a whole and guys don't think that Harvey Weinstein is this guy in a vacuum and this case and we all push it aside and it's no big deal guys. This is a prominent member of Hollywood. Probably one of the most prominent member members of Hollywood period end of sentence and putting out movies and the biggest movies of the year almost every single year until this whole case came out. Okay and he actually has fr- or he had friends I'm sure they're denigrating and pushing him aside now but he certainly had friends. In high places none higher than even the Oval Office and not just the attempted Oval Office as he was good friends with Hillary Clinton as well. But let's hear clip from somebody. You may recognize this voice about it is after. Let's hear what this woman had to say about Mr Harvey Weinstein. I want to start by thanking Harvey Weinstein for organizing this amazing day. This is possible because of Harvey He is a wonderful human being a good friend and Just a powerhouse. And the fact that he and his team took the time to make this happen for all of us should say something not about me or about this place but about you Harvey Weinstein a good friend of Michelle Obama. The first lady they were actually inside of the White House at that time as she was honoring Mr Weinstein and talking about how such a wonderful human being that this guy is but don't think that that is the only accolade that was given him and the only comment said about him. And you guys we were going through it before we started this episode and Tony Play Clip. I think it was probably like a minute or two minutes long and it was just famous guys like Billy Bob Thornton and just famous celebrity episode praising Him but no greater praise did he get then from who many consider the greatest actress of the era. So Tony let's put that clip. I just want to thank my agent. Kevin Ngubane and God Harvey.

"Of things in the news not connected but very interesting first of all the Harvey Weinstein case now there were two serious charges where he was found not guilty on the other hand there with the three charges in the training is it boy that's it the come down what am I missing in that what happened was that the jury initially just was unable to agree were on on whether or not he was guilty of being a sexual predator they sent a note out to the jury in this issue what if we can agree on a lesser charges but not on the more serious ones and the judge said just keep trying well that was a tip off that they were going to go for skilled for lower because if they were gonna go for not guilty on or they wouldn't fuss with the more extreme charges so bottom line is guilty of the lower charges which could put him in prison for five to twenty five years and now he still faces another trial out in Los Angeles but when the question and then one of the things he was found guilty of was third degree rape I've never heard of that third degree what does that mean has to do with how violent something was how serious the injury was a rape occurs without additional physical harm or may am bodily injury broken bones and so on that affects the degree kind of like murder in the first degree versus second or third degree so that jury had to evaluate just how serious the offense was and of course that's going to be taken into account when the judge picks a number between five and twenty five years one of the sites not over form though does he face charges in LA also that's right and no matter what happens in New York and you can bet his appeal will go forward and one of the grounds for his appeal Ron will be with you you allowed all these additional women from years back whose charges the statute of limitations expired you shouldn't have let them testify prejudiced the jury but the judge's position was just as in the Bill Cosby case it shows a pattern and practice of behavior but that's going to be his argument on appeal in New York but however that goes he is going to be hauled out to Los Angeles in cops and faces a separate charges will go on trial probably within the rest of the year in Los Angeles all right certainly different question you have the president of the United States demanding that two of the Supreme Court justices recused themselves because sort of my heirs complained that among other things the administration sends too many cases to the court labeling them emergency but the idea of recusing yourself and the president demanding it he's trying to shake up government again isn't he his chances of getting the Supreme Court justices to recuse themselves are somewhere between slim and none what he's saying is that they're biased against him he doesn't have evidence of the bias what he has is a very strong statements by just to sort of my or and others that he repeatedly the trump administration lawyers have advanced positions that lack merit that doesn't mean that they are biased and cannot be objective now stronger arguing about it president would be able to look at justice Ginsburg's comments before I was elected she said I was a faker she hoped I didn't get elected but people do not believe that that means that she can't hear trump administration cases she apologized for it she said that was over the top the president cannot go around getting rid of justice is simply because of the rule repeatedly against his lawyers the president's broadside against these two justices follows the sharp criticism he had in the Roger stone case you get the idea that the president is trying to take the three branches of government and make sure that there's one very strong one and two that are not as strong thanks that he's exercising his right of free speech Twitter got a move where he is today and he's not going to get off of that horse the problem is that an independent judiciary is really critical you can't have justice is intimidated by the blustering of politicians left or right and a lot of justices are very sensitive to the idea that judges shouldn't be spending with the political winds he shouldn't be removed simply because they make unpopular decisions so the president's venturing into some very deep waters in terms of judicial independence no recall couple years ago Ron when he said referring to an Obama judge Chief Justice Roberts fired back and said no we don't have a bomb a judge's we had to have honest fair minded federal judges so there's definitely some bad blood between the president and the judiciary he's really barking up the wrong tree there's no way the president is going to get rid of any of the Supreme Court justices on his cases NBC legal analyst royal oaks road it's always great to come to you I can always call on you if I need to explanation of what's going on in this legal world thanks Ron that's the Romulans report every week day at eleven thirty again at three thirty and seven thirty I.

"Gatos and Chad show Harvey Weinstein once a movie mogul powerful hobnob with everybody and then some will be hobnobbing with new people in jail joining us now is one of only a modicum from Acadia our legal expert so Monica he was convicted on not one but two of the first one he was convicted on it which is and again there were five different counts but the most severe charges he escaped but he did get a was it a a felony third degree rape which and a first degree criminal sex act those two carry anywhere between five to twenty five years and the other one up to four years that's twenty nine years he potentially faces yeah I did he was here in Arizona because they are different victims then you could actually stack those sentences in Arizona they don't have to run concurrent so it's possible that that's the way it works in New York as well remember he's what sixty seven years old so yes even if they gave him twenty nine years he's gonna die in prison but he'll appeal so let's talk about the actual charges because everybody was talking about when that happened that he was such a horrible person in these were just you know the casting couch thank right well he of course we do believe he has a horrible person and disgusting and all that but like you said the predatory sexual assault counts are the ones that they found him not guilty on and I really think it was because the witness that is involved in both of those counts the jury didn't believe her name was Annabella Sciorra if I'm saying that right she wasn't she the one on what was that show the sopranos Ranil she starred a bunch of movies she was you know in the in the in the eighties and nineties fairly big actors so what what does still counts most serious one it was that he did something to somebody also did something Annabelle so he was a predatory sexual assault or rape he preyed on people so there had to be some kind of pattern that's why there were a lot of women testifying that weren't victims in this case to show that patter but regardless the jury did not believe her because those two counts that involved her not guilty on now the other one what I think is fascinating is both of the victim had consensual sexual encounters with him at other times but they also have what they consider to force the ball and get this New York statute that says something that you could be found guilty of that if you had sex sexual intercourse contact with someone without consent because that's the only reason other than incapacity or age the one other words if he had enough influence our influence on them to do something that was enough for the statute even if they knew what was going on all right Monica Lindstrom thanks for joining us and breaking down what happened Harvey Weinstein guilty.

V. wind speed when he was god then when the new York PD brought him audio tapes of him confessing to attacking the girl in the the woman in the New York City hotel until I run in Farrell wrote the story in The New Yorker he he wouldn't he wouldn't touch the case with a ten foot ball although we did take touch ten thousand dollars that Weinstein gave to his campaign a lot of integrity and that guy right there yes he's yes yes if you want to hide something real good just thinking I want a site manta universal parks we will leave no stone unturned except the one the Democrat is hiding her robe and all all right grace is with me in Florida this week Florida it's a it is a state that as of last night around seven o'clock eastern time move solidly into the leading Republican column as a Bernie Sanders talked about his great love for Fidel Castro and I landed in ages really helped push them over the edge so I get a lot of news to tell you guys today I'm with Alexandria Ocasio Cortez I noticed in your clothes this weekend was every tweet was about her they must get great traffic from her is a message we did fifteen stories in a row but they're saying the AO sees war on fellow Democrats likely to eliminate her house seat so there's a couple things going on here she refused to pay dues to the Democrat party right and her reasoning was well I'm spending my money on specific and we all had to pay our fair share including Democrat congressman how how we sound so naive and she and her allies are now targeting several longtime local lawmakers on the theory that they're every bit as much of a problem as Republicans so now she's devoting her own resources not her own personal but her own that she gets as I am a politician instead to defeating those Democrats which has to be very annoying see the ironic thing is that as they as they moved deeper and deeper into socialism in New York more and more new Yorkers only the places like this Florida or Tennessee where there's no taxes income taxes or taxes where there's no taxes so they always lose congressional seats whenever there's there's there's a new census which there is every tenth year so generally speaking New York loses at least one sometimes two congressional seats every census but the kid the key what's interesting here is they re district are out then she will have no choice but to run against Cryin Chuck Schumer the Senate that is so so be careful what you wish for New York dams so don't be surprised in the established Democrats who controlled redistricting redistricting around the twenty twenty senses do their best to eliminate her seat I think this would be perfect she gets a little you know knocked off her pedestal by losing her seat and then she has to run against Chuck Schumer and I don't care what you see is I would love to see Chuck Schumer loose and now there's another another option now that I think about it you know who else is up in twenty twenty to the governor wow that would be something I prefer to see a running issue I'm ready to meet him it's interesting though because it brings up this other issue that I've been noticing which is people like Chuck Schumer let's say this was to happen this is white he has created the pencil left the band and it's the same I think the same thing about Chris Matthews you see him up there now saying you know this is like the fall of France Bernie Sanders wins and this and that I want to see them come right Chris this is all your own doing for years and years you called everybody Hitler from it Romney to bush now we have a candidate or we have a president who is so far right because you guys convinced everyone that we were and everyone was evil and you made it so political and now you're getting is Bernie Sanders you wanted a revolution here yes or to put it another way never let your mouth write a check that your rear end can't cash and looking at Chris Matthews all these nighttime shows hardball he looks like he cannot catch them he looks like he's about to P. is pants this is that's a tingle down his leg yeah he did that he was a he was definitely not getting a tangled down his leg on Saturday when the those results were coming in from Nevada as as slowly as they work with like cut to this is this is Chris Matthews basically throwing in the towel one twenty twenty I wonder whether the democratic moderates want Bernie Sanders to be president I mean it's so exciting a question the rays they don't like trump at all today one Bernie Sanders to take over the Democratic Party in perpetuity that over he says the rest of the future the party made it right away for your supported our event today.

"WBC Chicago test American life America last Harvey Weinstein has gone on trial and we thought this would be a good moment to replay the show that we did two years ago it's not about somebody famous is not about accusations of rape in fact what was so powerful about the our city illustrated so vividly hi all kinds of other behavior by Abbas comments insinuations can affect employee so deeply they're putting Harvey Weinstein over the last few years has led millions of women to rethink interactions they've had with male bosses and co workers partners this is a story about that happening this put together by one of our producers kana Jaffe what we played the original story that we broadcast in March twenty eighteen with a brief update at the end who's gonna when Vivien started reading about the men in Hollywood and the media and their sexual transgressions she thought of the men in her past would behave to poorly the man who assaulted her in her twenties and the others a few unwanted kisses over the I mean truly on wanted to drunken guys just sort of pushing themselves on me and you know the huge full array of jokes and comments in this in that she thought of them and she thought of done her partner of twenty three years in Vivian wondered don was a bus to dozens of women he ran alternet a progressive news website any was a flirt it was easy for me to imagine the timeline had missed unspoken signals of being a little to present a little too close a little too eager a little too you know those kinds of things she'd seen at Chet seen downs attention make women uncomfortable at parties and restaurants and what would happen is I would catch her arrive and we would roll our eyes together like a god man thirty a sort of a bond there and we'll call you know and things will go on this is like don flirting with some woman in front of you yeah he was a flirt I knew he was a flirt I also really knew that didn't have anything to do with us that had to do with the need of need for attention did that feel did you feel embarrassed by it of course of course but it would pass quickly it was usually very easy to move things along the next step then I could step between I could Cano engage her in conversation and whatever right would you talk to don about it rarely because I didn't think I'd be believed yeah him by him I think he sort of laughed it off and say you just don't get it it's all in fun which I do think was his attitude that China was a senator so in two thousand seventeen when done told Vivian that buzzfeed news was writing a story about him Vivian was not surprised people who used to work for don at alternet were accusing done of sexually harassing them Vivian read the article a number of women detailed encounters with don unwanted advances inappropriate touching sending them explicit emails Vivian recognize don in some parts others felt like they were describing a person should never met mostly she had a particular experience reading that story that actually had nothing to do with on a memory came back to me when I was twenty eight that I'm sure I haven't thought about since it happened she was training to be a psychologist with a bunch of young trainees at a clinic she's in the back room where the staff took breaks and wrote notes the supervisor was Amanda's virtually all the supervisors at the time more in his forties maybe even early fifties Vivian was on the couch with her friends a woman in her forties and the two of them watched as many of that young psychology and turns women Vivian's age in their twenties crowded around the supervisor there surrounding him and and sort of hanging on his words and leaning in and it's just been caught that no offense his words weren't that interested it's like they were following me but oh my god and he was eating it up you could just see like he'd love to this and I'm sitting in the back of the room on the couch and with this other woman land and she looks up to go to the cupcakes Vivian lost it she loved this word it was perfect and you understood immediately that that was meant to refer to the women who are surrounding absolutely absolutely and you know when I was really proud that she was basically saying you're not one of them and I did not want to be one of them she's basically saying he your call and they're not exactly exactly like like we are grown up women and their on Oct okay yeah that's why I want to be that is where her mind when reading about her partner of two decades in the news the cupcakes Vivian felt full of regret sure creditor contempt for the cupcakes what I find so interesting about this was for Vivian learning the news about don spark to this memory that was not about don but explain something to her about who she is and how she is and the choices and assumptions she's made in her life now I want to tell you about another group of people I've been talking to the women who worked for don including women who say they were harassed by him I talked with them and they saw me there don stories but they also did the same thing.

"They don't see a thing so a lot working for a hobby one state you did it you did it that was Richard a is the golden globes last week never back out you know obviously a joke at the golden globes but how close to the bone was that and how much is Hollywood still wrestling with the complicity around Harvey Weinstein well it's interesting with Harvey there are a lot of people who sort of quietly I did know that something was awry that doesn't mean they all knew that he was an alleged rape yes but they certainly knew that there was a way that he behaved toward people in general and women in particular that was just unacceptable I'm one of the areas where I think complicity is really a question is in the agencies it was agents who sent these actresses on their auditions agents sometimes really did know that it was not a safe place to be sending their clients and so there's been some soul searching at the agencies but they've also been probably slower to change than a lot of the other major companies in Hollywood you know this I should point out that you know the have you watching trial is not necessarily the the me to move it to me to move and it's not necessarily all around Harvey Weinstein they've been you know number of names to come up since the me too movement started but I mean everyone seems name is is certainly the most prominent so that being said what's on the line for the movement with this trial yeah it read this really is it once he really is sort of the the the top of the tidal wave as you say there many many other people who have been affected by the movement and then one steam but it does feel like what this jury in New York does makes a big statement about whether alleged predators are able to sort of function in the world and and get off without punishment interestingly though even if one's team is acquitted in New York City he now faces new charges in Los Angeles so he will literally go directly from one trial to another the Oscar nominations have come out lived for a lot of people it's hard to separate the Oscars from Harvey Weinstein he was known as a as a master campaigner he was no someone had a lot of influence over the Academy Awards are they still feeling his influence in Hollywood today even though they may not want to talk about it yeah I mean Oscar nominations warning was Christmas morning for Harvey Weinstein he invented the modern Oscar campaign with this movie with his campaign for Shakespeare in love which beat saving private Ryan and I think it was nineteen ninety eight and of the nine Best Picture nominees seven of them have a people running the Oscar campaigns who once worked for Harvey Weinstein so if that doesn't give you an indication of how large he's still looms in Hollywood and in particular this time of year I don't know what to say we're gonna keep an eye on the trial thank you Rebecca for joining us thank you Rebecca Keegan is the senior film editor for The Hollywood Reporter she joined you from Los Angeles California you're gonna hear is checking in with her back as the Harvey Weinstein trial continues hi my name is Agnes oval and you're listening to Q. time power it's been almost a week since the terrible plane crash in Iran that killed a hundred and seventy six people including fifty seven Canadians any emotions in this country are still raw as we still try to process the tragedy many of us turn to the news TV radio newspapers podcasts Bruce McInnes work appears in the newspaper but it does something that the facts and figures can't always do he channels the anger the frustration and the anguish such a really tough moment Bruce canton is the editorial cartoonist for the chronicle here old Nova Scotia's largest newspaper and its cartoon this weekend about the tragedy in Iran quickly went viral it's not the first time Bruce McKennon's work spoke to people so widely you might remember his cartoon about Brett Kavanaugh send a Senate hearing which is hugely circulated in the U. S. last year so Bruce McCann and joins me on the line from Halifax to talk about how we approached this particular tragedy hi Bruce thanks for joining us thank you Tom so can you I know that I said this is not easy for a radio show can you describe the cartoon that appeared in Saturday's edition of the chronicle Herald certainly it was it was a fairly straightforward image I had Donald Trump and deterring in leadership yeah I told us standing opposite each other each with a firearm pointed directly at each other both having gone on smoking gun does it work and figure it as your eyes move down the figure that has has been shot in between the two of them is a is a Canadian comedian civilians because referencing that like anything Canadians killed during the conflict between these two people exactly yeah I mean there's a lot of grief and anger and disbelief in this country right now and as I mentioned a minute ago there's no shortage of news stories opinion pieces about how this plane crash happened and a lot of conversation around who's to blame here but I'm curious like what is a grieving public at from a political cartoon like yours as opposed to like an an op ed or a news story well the first thing it is immediacy you can look at an image like this and you can get the message almost instantaneously I think the short form of of of the message of this image is you know these these to these two men share the blame for this you know and it's a much more complicated issue than that and we can hash it out in thousands of words and columns and and you know and and people can speak very powerfully that that way too but I think if there's you know quicker message to be had an editorial cartoons you do it right it can you know it can invoke you know make it basically can speak for people you know who feel the same way in this case I think what it what it was able to offer was a morsel of truth you know again very quickly you know in the case of the cartoon as the nation's real cartoon I think that was more about sort of offering some country to people who really had you know did know how to feel or how to sort of you know mitigate the grief that kind of thing so you know each each cartoon addresses an issue like this you know can offer something different what what what what about you like what is working on the cartoons day in and day out does it help you work out your own frustrations your own questions about these issues yeah I mean I think it helps me in the same way that that it helps you know those who who read the cartoon but for me in particular is there's a certain empowerment in being able to sort of stand up and say something that that you know again that offers truths or consolation or what have you you know what I have an ability to sort of speak for people and I don't you know greater ability to speak for myself this is my opinion that goes out there and you know not not everyone can dance in the way that it is an editorial cartoonist can do have you have you heard from folks about your cartoon yet all of these men all kind of feedback yeah and it's you know it it runs the gamut I mean you know for the most part as you know old people our supporters and people are appreciative but there is a there are always two sides to every argument those who who you know what would you know deny that these two leaders you know share equal culpability in he certainly have the trump basin supporters you know denying that he had anything to do with with this so you know everyone is there there's quite a debate going on over there and and it'll continue going on you know how long after the cartoon has been published and that was going on before this is funny you know the the well I mean it's it's not funny I'm I'm the cook all the internet all the cartoons I've talked to you about today have been ones that have had to reflect a tragedy or a somber moment in our country but ultimately your job as a political cartoonist not one that's right one of your jobs as a political cartoon is is certain levity is a certain amount of a you know making a joke what's it like to have to step outside of that satire in the in these situations it's uncomfortable you know it's and it's never something I look forward to that you did it it's I I levity is our happy place it's not the whole cartoon it's not it's not even the most important part of a cartoon the most important part of a cartoon but you speak clearly and that you say something that has impact that maybe you know if you're if you're lucky will affect change will affect a lot of people that's that's you your job is essentially to communicate you know it's as strong as possible and state your opinions if you can use you know humor in that process and then that's fantastic and that that are happy place you know that's a cartoonist happy place but for the most part you know who we have a lot of other you know aspects to our jobs that are important and when an issue like this comes up I don't I don't like I don't look forward these issues at all your voice in this possible but in cases like this they're on avoidable they're they're sitting there on the front page day after day and we have photographs were for numbers you know days in a row of of of local victims young university students and you know you can't yeah not look at those photos and and and not be affected Bruce Preece I'm gonna leave it there thank you so much for joining us that Bruce McCann is the editorial cartoonist of the chronicle here in Halifax more Q. is coming up right after this her story that change the way you saw the world I'm guy rise to each week for inspiring stories Ted radio hour from NPR Wednesdays at nine PM ninety three.

"Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein is facing new charges including rape which were filed in Los Angeles justices trial in New York City got under way for more on what happened this week during the trial in New York and what's ahead for Harvey Weinstein let's bring IT ABC news senior investigative reporter acheter skate where do we stand a Harvey Weinstein trial jury selection is now under way sherry and the judge has called it garden variety jury selection because it's all happening in the open but nothing about this case has been garden variety and it's been a rather slow process because as they bring potential jurors in in groups of one hundred ten only a handful can actually certify that they could be fair one potential jurors said she knew someone who had an encounter with Harvey Weinstein in another said she had read road in Farrell's book and had already made up her mind is so the pre trial publicity and all of the the you know the the emergence of the me too movement really is having an effect on on jury selection here and Harvey Weinstein try to get the judge to recuse himself in part because he refused to grant the change of venue and he wanted to be tried in a Long Island wasn't that right that was one of the options either out in Suffolk County on in eastern Long Island or perhaps up in the capital region of New York in around Albany thinking that maybe the the publicity wouldn't have been as intense as it would be in New York City but the judge turn turn that request down it was actually quite funny at one point the judge admonished Harvey Weinstein and in a rather pretty good scolding for for actually using a cell phone in court and and said this is really the way you want to end up in jail for the rest of your life and that's scolding was so over the top the defense said that the judge should recuse himself that was another reason some really that that of the the fire works have been on display from the start even before jury selection really began many of the women who are accusing Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault not not talking about the ones who is accused of in this particular criminal trial but many of those who have said in other cases that they they've accused him of sexual assault said that they were going to be in the trial every single day listening to this testimony of they've been there a couple showed up at at the beginning but I think many years are choosing to wait until the testimony gets underway for all of the more than eighty and perhaps as many as one hundred five women who have accused Harvey Weinstein publicly of some kind of sexual misconduct the criminal case really boils to the accounts of two within one who says that Harvey Weinstein raped her in a Manhattan hotel in twenty thirteen any other maybe a lady who has come out and said that Harvey Weinstein forced himself on her back in two thousand six and those accounts make up the five felony charges that winds dean faces the judge has allowed several other women to testify to what these women call Harvey Weinstein's prior bad acts it's it's very similar to how the Bill Cosby case was built the second time around that lead to his conviction where women whose accounts may be beyond the statute of limitations or happen in a different jurisdiction are allowed to come help the prosecution build a case that Harvey Weinstein is a serial predator so in the meantime there is also a new case in Los Angeles that involves charges too in fact one of the women who is going to testify to bolster the prosecution account in New York is one of the women whose account makes up the criminal charges now in Los Angeles where Harvey Weinstein is accused on successive nights in twenty thirteen of raping a woman and sexually assaulting another woman of the these these alleged encounters happened at two different hotels one in Los Angeles the other in Beverly hills Harvey Weinstein of course has denied all non consensual sex claims finally when we when we headed to the actual trial the testimony is this any this going to be televised or we're gonna be able to hear see it we will not know cameras have been allowed and we're poor is when we're inside of the courtroom can't even use cell phones to transmit real time information out but but some of that testimony is we think going to get rather right specific the prosecution mention the existence of seventy two photographs taken by one of the witnesses the exact content was not clear but the those pictures are apparently so sensitive that the the the judge and the prosecutors and the defense team are are trying to figure out how to show them without unduly humiliating Harvey Weinstein the prosecutors want to show seven of those photographs and believe they can do it sensitively the judge even questioned whether they could be delicate wow okay so a lot going on and Harvey Weinstein case and even more coming up the next couple weeks much more coming up as a jury get seated in the testimony gets underway sure hi this is Erica Turkey thank you Sir thank you the.

And it's like this is the moment he's here and one if the women tells me that she hasn't seen Harvey Weinstein in years and years since her alleged encounter with him but he gets down out of the car and his is using Walker. He sort of stooped. He's recently had back surgery. He surrounded by his legal team and he goes straight into the courthouse. He doesn't glance at the women.

Who will take the stand against Harvey Weinstein? Gene moves trial actress. Rosanna arquette says a few words and basically their message collectively is to say look we. We aren't going anywhere. Even though we're not part of this trial or voices need to be heard and time's up on the pervasive culture of silence that is enabled able to views. IRS like Weinstein. And what's actually happening inside inside the courtroom on this first day so the courthouse is packed. People have been lining up since the crack of dawn to go in but it's a pretty straightforward preceding the judges spelling out how things are going to unfold in the coming days and weeks as they round the corner into jury selection so Jodie and I asked for a little while determined that.

"Harvey Weinstein was known to be able to do anything he thought of himself as the sheriff in town in the same way gangs he read she kicks and screams I just froze more than once and then I just it's great that run it there or is in the movie as well because he gets my tremendous reporting around this this issue and one of the things I I wonder about showing a film like this is so much of the aftermath of the Harvey Weinstein case particular women felt like they could come forward people who had sat silent for so long you heard that one woman say she froze she never told anyone is there a certain element to the festival that you hope helps women speak out whether it be about this whether about pay equity that this in some way film can help women find a voice well I think that's the theme of the festival frankly and it's always been the theme of women in the world which is finding voices for women and powering those voices and celebrating those who do speak out this festival is all about that and it's about women who are heroes who simply just kick against it I mean opening night tonight actually I'm moderating a conversation with Kathy Griffin she who course such a not role models with that really while I'm out that photograph she did of trump's you know supposedly seven head as a gag that ready went wildly awry but what happened how often was he's quite astonishing image you ready found the hole that she was persecuted and and and trolled and trashed and I mean it was just astounding lost her income she let me in yeah and so she's made she's very a very brave fashion frankly since she couldn't get any finance so any gigs on any work she actually paid for this whole movie to be this documentary of has sort of come back sort of stand up Iraq which she created out of what happened to and it's really entertaining it's very out that but I you know even though I must say I have some doubts of what the original you know back to the photograph what happens or off which is really pretty unconscionable and she tremendously captures the fear and craziness of what happens when the full social media said a flash mob descends on you and I think it's going to be a very entertaining and and quite role conversation actually tells us more panels well I was just going to take you back on the court at the Griffin I think when we think about what the vessels about a lot of is about resilience and yeah that's what Kathy really shows and when we talk about untouchable these women who have been able to come forward in much part because of other women who have also been telling the stories and they've been in power to do that so I do think that that really comes across there's a somewhere showing called a girl from a good issue it's a drama from Ireland and it's about a woman who flees Mogadishu to become and international advocate for against female genital mutilation it's a fantastic movie it's thrilling and it's a relic of the subject Tuesday after persons based on who will be with us as well as a director and a couple of actors from the movie I think that's gonna be a really interesting conversation was also wonderful documentary about the great Texas journalist Molly Ivins it's a hilarious portrayed of this firebrand columnist who was absolutely able to take down anybody and never see it you know have no fear or favor if anybody in authority in fact the last column which was published before she died and it was published in January two thousand seven ended with this call to action we are the people who run this country we are the deciders and every single day every single one of us needs to step outside and take some action raise hell there's no question that so many of the women you know that we featured in these movies and the subjects have been able to raise hell and actually we have with this Kathleen Turner who was a great friend of of Molly Ivins to talk about Molly and the kind of hell she raised the name of the documentaries raise hell the life and times of Molly Ivins we actually the clip from the film it's a it's Molly and then it's Rachel Maddow explaining what she sees as Ivan gift and then an example of that gift after speech by Pat Buchanan syndicalist I think there's two different kinds of humor there's a kind of wonderful gentle humor garrison Keillor does it it draws people together and make it as recognize our common humanity and foibles and how silly we all are in the end it really unifies people then there's another kind of humor that holds people at the contempt and ridicule that's what I do what was unique about her was that she was not afraid to be angry but she did it in a way that male made a case she made a case that she was doing it because it was deserved and she made you laugh all she was doing it you remembered or one liners and I just don't know anybody else who does.
