If you haven’t watched “Inside Job”, you must do it now ūüôā Not a second to waste. In fact, this documentary should be shown to every high schooler so that they learn just how corrupt the American govt and financial system is.

Inside Job¬†is a 2010 American¬†documentary film, directed by¬†Charles Ferguson, about the¬†late-2000s financial crisis. Ferguson, who began researching in 2008,[3]¬†says the film is about “the systemic corruption of the United States by the¬†financial services¬†industry and the consequences of that systemic corruption”.[4]¬†In five parts, the film explores how changes in the policy environment and banking practices helped create the financial crisis.

Inside Job was acclaimed by film critics, who praised its pacing, research and exposition of complex material. It screened at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival in May and won the 2010 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.

On the disgusting Weinstein front, the DailyBeast and others report that 

The NYPD Is Ready to Arrest Harvey Weinstein. Will District Attorney Cy Vance Finally Agree to Let It?

‚ÄúWe will decline,‚ÄĚ a Vance spokesman said when asked for comment.

According to police sources, the NYPD has been investigating five separate sexual assault allegations against Weinstein. One case is said to be particularly strong.

The NYPD does not name sex crime victims, but the victim in this instance has spoken for publication about the alleged assault.

In defending the decision not to prosecute, Chief Assistant DA¬†Karen Friedman Agnifilo actually sought to blame the detectives, saying that before making the recording they should have first consulted with the ‚Äúseasoned prosecutors‚ÄĚ in her office.

‚ÄúWhile the recording is horrifying to listen to, what emerged from the audio was insufficient to prove a crime under New York law, which requires prosecutors to establish criminal intent,‚ÄĚ Agnifilo said.

A Weinstein victim is liable to be all the more leery of going to the Manhattan DA since the mogul retained defense attorney Ben Brafman, whose law partners include Marc Agnifilo. He is the husband of Karen Friedman Agnifilo, who is said to have recused herself from any further involvement in anything Weinstein.

Evans eventually agreed to meet with the DA’s office after the SVU detectives offered to accompany her and remain while she was interviewed. She is said to have been as convincing with the prosecutors and she had been with the detectives.

=========

So is Vance in Weinstein’s pocket or is there really any legal issues? I’m betting on the former, but I don’t rule out the latter. And if NY law is what is preventing the Govt from putting him in jail, even though he is guilty, then obviously the law must be changed.

Why don’t people change it?

==========================

On the (I assume) bright side, the sale deal for the Weinstein Co has fallen through so beautifully it’s making me smile every time I think about it. When I first heard the news of the sale, I thought: how unfair. The man (supported by his¬† Weinstein Co cronies) abuse and humiliate countless women and then sell the company and walk away with millions.

But bankruptcy is hopefully not going to allow them to do that.

Fingers crossed.

And what about Miramax/Disney? It’s so sad that they seem to be untouchable, even though complicit.

 

Excellent article on an excellent achievement:  a male escort, Francesco Mangiacapra, has gone public about Italian priests involved with illegal drugs, soliciting (male) prostitutes,  blackmail, embezzlement and other crimes.

Says the Churchmilitant: as many as 60 priests involved.

Well done, Francesco Mangiacapra! If only there were more people willing to expose the rot that LGBTs are in the world.

The preliminary hearing is set to take place on March 8, where the judge will examine the evidence for accusations of fraud, drug distribution, embezzlement, extortion and self-laundering.
The case began when male escort, Francesco Mangiacapra, decided to go public about services he had been rendering to Fr. Morini, who falsely presented himself as a judge.
But the diocese only acted once it¬†found out that national broadcast show¬†Le Iene¬†was after the priest, so the bishop¬†suspended him from his activities “due to sickness”¬†and then transferred him to a ‚ā¨200,000.00 house, bought¬†especially¬†for him (monthly utility bills and maid included). These were allegedly obtained from the bishop of Massa Carrara-Pontremoli, Giovanni Santucci, through¬†blackmail, as Morini had “threatened to expose to the public eye unpleasant facts about many diocesan priests.” Bishop¬†Santucci also gave Don Euro¬†‚ā¨4,500,00 from his own personal bank account, as well as ‚ā¨1,000.00 from diocesan¬†funds. The bishop is also currently under investigation.

What garbage of people.
