The liberal media never want to discuss real issues impacting real Americans. Why hide how Hollywood moguls and politicians regularly sexually abuse women with impunity? Does it have anything to do with cash and buying influence in our political pay-to-play culture?

Look at predators such as Harvey Weinstein. It’s been a rough ride for embattled Weinstein over the past few days. Two members of his legal dream team have resigned. One of America’s most prominent women’s rights advocates, Lisa Bloom — who two days earlier remarked how she was hired to assist Harvey in using this “painful learning experience to grow into a better man” and promised to “continue to work with him personally for as long as it takes" — lasted only 48 hours before resigning on Twitter. So “as long as it takes” doesn’t seem to be very long.

The entertainment world’s silence regarding the Weinstein case is deafening. Lorne Michaels, whose Saturday Night Live has been exposed for its political advocacy and indoctrination, has remained completely silent about the issue. Lorne Michaels, why are you protecting Weinstein? Why no mention whatsoever? Why hasn’t there been any outcry from the liberal left? Where are the liberal politicians condemning Weinstein?

The answer can be found in the connections between Hollywood and Washington. Michaels, like Weinstein, contributed substantial sums to democratic candidates, such as Barack Obama, Joe Biden, John Kerry, Chuck Schumer, Chris Dodd, John Lewis, and Al Franken among others. Harvey Weinstein even bundled for the Clintons and the Obamas, convincing his friends and associates to donate money to their campaigns.

Weinstein, Hollywood, & The Democrats: A 30-Year Cover-Up of A Sexual Predator

Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Michelle Obama, and Barack Obama, how much cash is enough to buy your silence regarding sexual predators such as Harvey Weinstein? What is your actual dollar limit? Your hypocrisy is shocking. Your silence is even more shocking.

Americans need to realize the massive amounts of cash Hollywood is pumping into the Washington swamp. These Hollywood propagandists peddle politically scripted agendas in return for the power and influence they purchase. This ensures an excellent return on investment, sometimes in the billions of dollars. Nothing can help a movie or television studio more than heavy government support for its projects. And our politicians are more concerned with selling out every-day Americans to the same Hollywood moguls than protecting their constituents—you remember, the silly people who voted for you.

The Democratic National Committee, the Clinton Foundation, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Al Franken, Elizabeth Warren, and Kirsten Gillibrand are just a few who have received massive amounts of cash from Harvey Weinstein. The Democratic National Committee and politicians who "claimed" they would return some cash are, of course, only willing to return a fraction of what they were given.

The Clinton Foundation is completely silent about returning even one dime. Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton received millions of dollars from Weinstein, Weinstein's companies, and his bundling efforts. In fact, Hillary on her What Happened book tour in London has refused any comment on Weinstein's predicament, let alone volunteered to give back the millions Weinstein gave to her, to her husband, and to the Clinton Foundation.

Weinstein was a regular guest of Barack Obama. In fact, he visited the Obama White House more than 13 times during Obama's tenure. Weinstein even hired Obama's daughter as an intern. But that's not all.

In 2013, Hollywood mogul Barry Diller hired Hillary Clinton’s daughter to sit on the board of IAC Interactive, for which she was paid $50,000 a year and $249,936 in stock. Chelsea Clinton, a student with zero experience. This illustrates the pay-to-play culture and systemic rot generated by the propagandists running Hollywood and trying to manipulate our political system.

How dangerous does it become when entertainment figures can buy power and influence in our political system? Does anyone honestly believe that the same Hollywood moguls’ contributions to Washington DC do not impact public policy? Does anyone believe that these same moguls who control Hollywood do not exercise extreme censorship against any viewpoints that don't conform with their liberal ideologies?

Entertainment has become political advocacy bordering on extreme propaganda. Hollywood is an agenda-driven political-discourse machine designed to indoctrinate America's masses into accepting to the liberal viewpoint. In addition, if you're not from the liberal side of the fence, you won't get a job in Hollywood. Without the correct ideology, you will always remain an outsider looking in.

Americans need to think about the billions of dollars they are paying to fund Hollywood motion pictures, TV shows, and cable networks. Hollywood's profits are used to influence the political process, indoctrinate our young, fill the Washington DC swamp, and purchase political favours. It's time for America to wake up — because we need real news, real entertainment, and real political change.

Musk Promises to Power Puerto Rico, Goldman Warns of 50% Drop in Tesla Stock

Musk Promises to Power Puerto Rico, Goldman Warns of 50% Drop in Tesla Stock

In the same week that Goldman Sachs predicted Tesla stock to drop by nearly 50%, Elon Musk has promised to Power Puerto Rico.

It's very clear even to neophyte investors that Tesla's stock is in bubble territory somewhere outside the stratosphere. Goldman cites massive cash burn, "production issues" with hundred kilowatt-hour battery packs — another likely miss of Musk’s grand annual production targets for Tesla's Model 3 — as well as the need to raise yet more cash in the first quarter of 2018.

Reports Fortune: “Goldman predicts the firm will shed $20.3 billion in market capitalization over the next six months, or roughly 35% of its current value, because the company is unlikely to meet production targets.”

The reality is much worse. Explains Business Insider: “Goldman slightly reduced its forecast for vehicle deliveries this year and forecast ‘moderate growth’ from 2018 through 2021: a 5% compound annual growth rate versus 13% prior."

“It lowered its six-month target price on the stock to $180 from $190, implying a 49% decline from Monday's closing price of $352.62 [emphasis added].”

Tesla’s market capitalization has exceeded that of General Motors, which is gob-smacking when one considers that Tesla has delivered fewer than 300,000 cars in its history, compared to GM’s annual production output of over 12 million vehicles.

To divert media attention Musk proclaims he can build a power grid that can power Puerto Rico if given the chance. Today, Musk tweeted: "The Tesla team has done this for many smaller islands around the world, but there is no scalability limit, so it can be done for Puerto Rico, the decision is up to Puerto Rican government officials.”

Musk has a career of making outrageously bold claims, over-promising and always under-delivering — at a huge cost to taxpayers. In fact taxpayer subsidies are at the heart of Elon musk's business models and without them Tesla would've been bankrupt long ago.

The technology that Musk is suggesting is experimental and has never been used in large-scale projects. To allow Puerto Rico’s power grid to be utilized as a test case — at taxpayer expense no less — is dangerous and ludicrous. SolarCity was headed into bankruptcy when it's owner Elon Musk used influence to have Tesla purchase the cash burning machine.

In a similar manner, two months ago, I wrote an article: hyperloop isn't financially viable: Musk’s taxpayer funded vision is a nightmare. The master of hype, spin and PR Elon Musk tweeted :

Notice that Musk provided no indication who, exactly, in any of the numerous local governments gave this green light. Why? Are these the same anonymous sources as the White House leaks?

The Swiss National Bank has already invested in Tesla. Perhaps the European Central Bank, the Federal Reserve and the Bank of Japan will offer Elon Musk hundreds of billions of dollars to fund further experimental projects thus picking winners and losers in markets rather than allowing capitalism to decide which businesses survive based on a solid track record of profits — rather than losses followed by hype, spin and public relations.

Tesla, SolarCity and SpaceX are perfect speculative vehicles that illustrate the reckless bubbles created in a chase for yield created by our global central banks.

Elon musk is considered a “walking on water” media darling by the financial news talking heads. He is an oracle a visionary because it’s different this time, silly. I've said this before: it's never different, not this time, not next time, not anytime. Beware — many a talented snake oil salesmen have convinced investors to part with their hard-earned capital.

Don't be confused — or fooled — if it looks, feels and seems like a Ponzi scheme it usually is.. Follow the cash flows, and pay attention to the sustainability of the business without taxpayer or government subsidies.

Unfortunately, no one wants to miss out because the ride is always fantastic — like a Bentley convertible on a spring-day in Central Park — but Ponzi schemes always end in disaster and this time will be no different.
