Larry Elder takes us on a Democrat infested mine-field courtesy of Harvey Weinstein. For more on the mentioned “Nuts or Sluts defense,” see Larry’s detailed explanation HERE. And more anti-woman positions by Hillary, see HERE.
Gay Patriot grabs this excerpt to point to how good of a progressive Weinstein was….
In 2015, [Weinstein’s] company distributed “The Hunting Ground,” a documentary about campus sexual assault. A longtime Democratic donor, he hosted a fund-raiser for Hillary Clinton in his Manhattan home last year. He employed Malia Obama, the oldest daughter of former President Barack Obama, as an intern this year, and recently helped endow a faculty chair at Rutgers University in Gloria Steinem’s name. During the Sundance Film Festival in January, when Park City, Utah, held its version of nationwide women’s marches, Mr. Weinstein joined the parade.

NEWSBUSTERS hilariously notes…
If you need any reminding, the Democrats have a long history of “coziness” with the Russians, you need to look no further than the “Lion of the Senate” (Ted Kennedy) to see what REAL treason looks like:
Let’s not forget this episode:
The talk coming out of Washington these days sounds like 20 years ago when “soaking the rich” was thought to solve budgetary problems. As a result, a 10 percent luxury tax was imposed in 1990 on high-end yachts, planes, etc. Democrats such as Sens. Dick Gebhardt and Ted Kennedy were saying back then the same thing Democrats are saying today: The super-rich need to pay “their fair share.”
So, what happened to the infamous luxury tax? The rich simply avoided the tax by buying yachts and planes elsewhere — not in the United States. By 1991, an estimated 25,000 blue-collar jobs were lost in the boat-building industry — not to mention job losses in the plane industry and elsewhere. Many companies went out of business.
Expected tax revenues fell far under projected levels. Congress recognized its folly and repealed the luxury tax in 1993 — but not until thousands of jobs were lost and could not easily be regained.
Democrats today still have not learned the lesson. Soaking the rich does not help budgetary problems. It only eliminates badly needed jobs.
If the financially successful in this country do not see a future for their companies due to a negative business climate orchestrated by Democrats, there will be no business expansion — and correspondingly there will be no jobs forthcoming.
So why do Democrats continue their “soak the rich” rhetoric when it doesn’t work? They still haven’t learned the truth found in the old saying: Don’t kill the goose that lays the golden egg.
