How Driving Getaway Cars For Criminals
(Like Weinstein) Is A Profit Making Business
Updated May 28, 2020 - Created April 4, 2020

The linked videos below document Harvey Weinstein's long term abuse of women. They expose the ways Weinstein manipulated and abused women and how he
used his power and media influence to cover it up. This USA Today article identifies the women that have come forward to date. There may be more although the media glare is certainly not conducive to encouraging them to do so.  A few real patriots with grit would though.

“The law does not expect a man to be prepared to defend every act of his life which may be suddenly and without notice alleged against him.” - John Marshall

The first video is a short documentary by 60 Minutes Australia which describes the tactics of firms Weinstein hired to assist him in attacking and destroying young women he already victimized, to discredit them and allow his behavior to continue. Think of these firms as getaway drivers. They do not go in and rob the bank, but they drive the getaway car to help the robbers get away.  So far 87 victims have spoken up, which begs the question how such behavior could continue for as long as it did and why no one said anything about it or defend the women Weinstein abused?  You can be assured that the law, the courts and lawyers will not correct this problem.  There is too much money in keeping things as they are. Weinstein's lawyers call it the rule of law, which is simply horseshit. 

Make note of the fact that although Weinstein's behavior continued over a significant period of time the actual amount of history a jury is allowed to consider in trying and convicting him is severely limited.  How is that possible?  Regardless of what anyone may say, a logical person looking at Weinstein's history of abusing women and hearing what all of the victims said happened to them as a result, it would be clear Weinstein used his power over vulnerable women to sexually exploit them for much of his life.

There will be those who argue why his entire record of abuse should not be considered, but think about it for yourself. Use your powers of reasoning and deduction and it is apparent
that had Weinstein avoided prosecution with all the limits put on his victims and the jurors, the case would have been nothing short of a complete failure of the legal system.  You do not have to continue to put up with it. Americans with grit are the front line, unless you have a good reason to lay at the feet of some master like a cowering dog.

   "It is not what a lawyer tells me I may do; but what humanity, reason, and justice tell me I ought to do." - Edmund Burke 

Two questions arise from Weinstein's case.  How did we get to a point in the world that we the people are no longer entitled decide what is just and fair by having our view of Weinstein's abuse of women, possibly our own daughters, severely limited by the courts and so called rule of law?  One thing for certain is that it is much easier to create a defense for Weinstein if jurors are precluded from hearing the entire record and all of his victims testifying personally before them. 

Ask your self who might benefit from making sure the case is fought on narrower grounds and is there a way to make money from the shortened process?  Could it be that the situation can be more easily monetized by those charged with defending him if it takes less work to do so and would Weinstein be more likely to pay if he thought he could get away with it by simply paying a certain amount of money? Is the cost of rape and abuse something like a parking ticket now?

To give you one example of what happens when lawyers left to their own devices behind the scenes handle these situations, listen to what Michael Franzese, a former New York mobster (number 18) and caporegime of the Colombo crime family had to say about it in the video in the link. It takes somebody with a no nonsense and plain approach to things to spell it out. Franzese was prosecuted by Rudy Giuliani and freely admits that for the crimes he committed he would be convicted and could be sent up for 100 years. 

In the video Franzese talks about Roy
Cohn, one of the lawyers who pitched Franzese (its called ambulance chasing) to represent him. Franzese knew Cohn was simply lying to "beat" him (rip him off or rob him) out of $250,000, and then would make up a story that circumstances changed to explain his so called failure. To say Cohn did not know he would be unable to get Franzese off is delusional.  Franzese called Cohn's bluff and told him he would pay $1,000,000 for results. Of course Cohn and no other lawyers would want to do that. What should be of interest to readers is the fact that Cohn believed he could screw a member of the mob and get away with it without getting murdered.  Make a note in your diary. The legal system has been so corrupted that there is now a superclass of thugs, far worse than the mafia.  It is called the legal community.  They can get away with any manner of corrupt activity and threaten people like Franzese with absolute impunity because the entire system has been stripped of checks and balances. They know they can use that system to protect them and cover their corrupt activity.

Which raises an important issue.  Has the law been so corrupted that driving the getaway cars is now a profitable business for the legal profession, if we dare call that type of behavior a profession? There is no question with the maze the law has been manipulated to become that lawyers are necessary, but the erection of the maze is no accident.  Remember, the maze is the same type of structure raised to avoid taxes using tax havens, as well as the creation of laws by the organization called ALEC and so on to favor corporations over citizens.  News like this makes is clear that on some days the drivers
drive the car and other days the getaway drivers give the crooks lessons so they can go in and commit the crimes themselves. In the case of lawyers I am sure it is because they think they are smarter than the crooks they are educating on committing the crimes. 

The story in this link from Bloomberg about the people involved in selling opiates to the American people and tricks and deceptions they used to do so, is just one more confirmation of how the law, the courts and the lawyers who enable these crimes have corrupted the nation. How many people have been  killed by opiates? Here are records tracking it. Tobacco companies did the same thing and again only had to pay fines.  Fines and legal fees are viewed as a cost of doing business by criminals.  So now, in our corrupted free enterprise system criminal acts and deliberate but slow moving murder are condoned as business activities and entirely facilitated by law firms and compliant judges and courts. Are we stupid?

"The safety of the people shall be the highest law." - Marcus Tullius Cicero

Some may try to suggest these deaths are self inflicted, and if you are tempted to believe that I suggest you look in a mirror to see a deluded fool. Tobacco companies at one time ran ads touting the health benefits of smoking, and in markets where they could get away with it, gave samples away for free.  Is there any doubt that they knew exactly what they were doing?  The drug companies in the Bloomberg article used doctors and software that was deliberately crafted to push patients into drug use. Are you seriously going to try and say it is the patients' fault? When the nation has moved so far from being able to remedy these situations forcefully, we are in trouble. Lynchings would be bring a far more satisfactory result, and if it happened often enough to these bastards, crime would drop. Singapore is a good example of being tough on crime and crime dropping. I happened to know one of the architects of Singapore's policy, John Hanam.

"Law and order exist for the purpose of establishing justice and when they fail in this purpose they become the dangerously structured dams that block the flow of social progress." - Martin Luther King, Jr.

The next video is a clip from
60 Minutes Australia detailing how Weinstein pressured Ambra Battilana to have a sexual relationship with her, which was recorded on a wire by the New York police. Weinstein paid Battilana $1,000,000 dollars to cover it up.  She exposed him anyhow, and I sure hope she kept the money too.

Next up is Bill Cosby. There are just as many articles covering Cosby's accusers.  This article from The Wrap breaks down the accusations of 60 of Cosby's victims. Same story, except Cosby admitted he used Quaaludes to drug his victims.  Was Cosby any better than Weinstein?  Not hardly.  Assholes come in all colors.

Did the founding fathers anticipate these problems and have solutions for them.  Yes they did and the courts have been trying to get rid of it ever since

The Real Story - Monetizing Criminal Behavior: Profiting From Being An Accessory After the Fact

Although these aforementioned examples of Weinstein and Cosby are disturbing there is a story well beyond the abuse of these young women.  The real story is the system deliberately established to allow these crimes to continue, effectively monetizing them after the fact.  The firms identified in the 60 Minutes clips benefit from that system.

The second part of the story is how the public is convinced that there is some semblance of law and justice in this.  You know, the statue of limitations, the rules of evidence, reasonable doubt about the veracity of the the accusers, the presumption of innocence and so on.  But two men, and 150 women.  Discount half of them and the numbers are still staggering. There is zero justice in preventing the entire story coming out.

In the wild west, both of them would be dispatched with fairly quickly. But the problem with a quick dispatch is that is there is no money for the getaway drivers.  So there has to be a system to prolong the abuse and the defense of it, and the public has to be lulled into a sense that we are a nation of laws, and the law imperfect as it is, is being fairly prosecuted. So with nearly 150 victims over many years of abuse, lives destroyed with a bunch of enablers getting rich off the process tell me where the justice is?  Seems to me it is missing.
Today, being above the law is simply a matter of standing on a pile of money.  Nothing else seems to count.

Quotes on Justice

"Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are." - Benjamin Franklin

"Where there are too many policemen, there is no liberty. Where there are too many soldiers, there is no peace. Where there are too many lawyers, there is no justice."Lyn Yutang

"Couldn’t help but make me feel ashamed to live in a land where justice is a game." - Bob Dylan

"Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any bands of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive." (Noah Webster, "An Examination into the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution," 1787, a pamphlet aimed at swaying Pennsylvania toward ratification, in Paul Ford, ed., Pamphlets on the Constitution of the United States, at 56 [New York, 1888])

For Immigrants Only: Observe How Nations Are Destroyed by Corrupt Leaders And The Wealthy

If you are one of the unfortunate people forced out of your home and homeland and have had to make a perilous journey to leave it, start studying the behavior of certain powerful people in government in America and their treatment of plain folks to get some idea of the type of governance the United States, corrupt corporations, the wealthy and a completely corrupt media are moving America to and you will understand what happened to the country you fled. Many of these people have repeatedly voted to destroy the jobs and future of average people so that their corporate donors can reduce wages to as little as possible make a profit. Those in power are willing to do it to people whose families have been here for generations, so to them you are simply suckers in a play to continually reduce the earnings of average citizens so they are easier to control.  I am sure many of you understand what that is like.

They are also the same people that would take away the American people's right to be armed, which the founders of America intended its citizens should have not only to defend themselves from people who would rob them, kill them, and rape and murder their children, like those of you coming from Mexico among other nations with a serious problem with cartels, and the police and governments the cartels have paid off.  America's founders also intended that its citizens have the right to remove the government by force if necessary if it becomes so corrupt that it no longer represents the people, which happened with cartel infiltration of the police and courts in your country, and the government in places like Cuba and China.  You may not have been able to take back your own country right now, but you should make sure that anyone you know understands why the original design of America's constitution and the people that defend it are more important than those that would undermine the nation to get elected and tell you how to live while making sure you can do nothing about it if you don't like what they do.  If you can vote you need to make sure people who support America's constitution and will fight corruption in America's top policing agencies as well as American companies who would cheat citizens of their jobs and decent pay to make a profit are elected. You may not like a lot of what goes on around you, but it would be far better to be surrounded by people who can fight for the nation you are in than people who would stand by and do nothing about it.  Best regards.
