I’ve been in Washington DC for two days and I can’t wait to go home. As politically horrible as things can be in Southern California, at least the liberals are easy to spot. In DC, it’s hard to tell who supports who, which direction the winds will take them, and whether or not their stance today will match their stance tomorrow.

I’m here for some important meetings about pushing forward with the Federalist Party. No, I’m not going to pitch you on it here. I know there are still plenty of conservatives who believe in the Republican agenda and their ability to deliver, so this isn’t the venue. What I hope we can all agree on is the notion that DC needs a conservative reset, one that looks to the Constitution as the framework through which we must govern this nation.

Some of the people I’ve been speaking to here are known conservatives. They’re not “RINOs” who campaign on conservative values then lurch left once they’re in office. Despite this, the atmosphere is far more passive than I would have expected. It’s almost as if they’ve given up hope to pass anything meaningful that would limit government, balance the budget, remove the impediments DC has put on business, or attack the national debt. I came very hopeful and, with one more meeting scheduled, feel as if they’re all defeated already. I’m hoping the last meeting with a conservative Congressman will change my view, but right now I’m still befuddled by the defeatist attitude. They feel like they can’t get anything done.

We need a reset, badly. I’m not talking about a mini-Tea-Party revolution that yielded far less than most would admit. I’m not even talking about what Steve Bannon is trying to do to disrupt the system by finding primary opponents for pretty much every Senator up for reelection other than Ted Cruz. What we need is a fundamental change, a new direction that focuses on our nation’s roots within the constraints of the Constitution.

Call this a rant, if you will, but I’m more energized about building a limit-government agenda than I’ve ever been. DC does that to conservatives as long as they’re not exposed to the swamp for too long. I can’t wait to leave, but I know I have to return soon.

There has been a lot written about the silence of various people on the Harvey Weinstein business but there is one point that nobody seems to be interested in making.

Harvey Weinstein was a powerful man, he was a connected man. He knew Hollywood actors, journalists and pols. He had decades of success in the industry and became a powerhouse within it.

As a producer it is very likely that he was aware of all kinds of issues concerning his films, concerning stars, concerning journalists that might have an impact on his bottom line. It’s also very likely that he not only had such info on journalists and pols but might have even enabled such people in activities that they might not want made public.

This is my opinion the reason for the current silence by some and the long history of silence by others

So let me end this short post with an obvious question:

At what point does it become more profitable to Weinstein to share this three decades of info with the public than to keep silent now that everyone his going after him?

It is the answer to that question that terrifies hollywood most of all.


As I have no sexual secrets of rich liberals to keep for a price I have to make my buck by going places and doing interviews all the time hoping people like it enough to pay for it.
