The New Yorker has recently spilled the Hollywood beans by reporting that the much-debated Weinstein hired Mossad agents to continue his sexual adventures. It states:
“According to dozens of pages of documents, and seven people directly involved in the effort, the firms that Weinstein hired included Kroll, which is one of the world’s largest corporate-intelligence companies, and Black Cube, an enterprise run largely by former officers of Mossad and other Israeli intelligence agencies.
“Black Cube, which has branches in Tel Aviv, London, and Paris, offers its clients the skills of operatives ‘highly experienced and trained in Israel’s elite military and governmental intelligence units…’
“Two private investigators from Black Cube, using false identities, met with the actress Rose McGowan, who eventually publicly accused Weinstein of rape, to extract information from her. One of the investigators pretended to be a women’s-rights advocate and secretly recorded at least four meetings with McGowan.
“The same operative, using a different false identity and implying that she had an allegation against Weinstein, met twice with a journalist to find out which women were talking to the press. In other cases, journalists directed by Weinstein or the private investigators interviewed women and reported back the details.”
One of the investigators went by the name of “Diana Filip,” who turned out to be “an alias for a former officer in the Israeli Defense Forces….Two sources with knowledge of Weinstein’s work with Black Cube said that the firm creates fictional companies to provide cover for its operatives, and that Filip’s firm was one of them.”
This has been going on since last year, and the Weinstein Company means to tell us that they knew nothing about? No, this doesn’t add up at all. Consider this:
“Last fall, Weinstein began mentioning Black Cube by name in conversations with his associates and attorneys. The agency had made a name for itself digging up information for companies in Israel, Europe, and the U.S. that led to successful legal judgments against business rivals.
“But the firm has also faced legal questions about its employees’ use of fake identities and other tactics. Last year, two of its investigators were arrested in Romania on hacking charges. In the end, the company reached an agreement with the Romanian authorities, under which the operatives admitted to hacking and were released.”
There is more here than meets the eye and ear: “Weinstein also enlisted other journalists to uncover information that he could use to undermine women with allegations. A December, 2016, e-mail exchange between Weinstein and Dylan Howard, the chief content officer of American Media Inc., which publishes the National Enquirer, shows that Howard shared with Weinstein material obtained by one of his reporters, as part of an effort to help Weinstein disprove McGowan’s allegation of rape. In one e-mail, Howard sent Weinstein a list of contacts. ‘Let’s discuss next steps on each,’ he wrote.”
Weinstein’s covert activity is obviously pregnant with meaning. It tells us that people like Weinstein are working with Mossad agents whenever they get into trouble. This also indicates that Bob Weinstein and the entire company knew that Harvey was on the brink of getting into hot water. Finally, this implies that powerful forces in Hollywood and the Israeli regime are essentially two sides of the same coin.
Is that a surprise? Not really.
Consider for example Arnon Milchan. Milchan is the guy who was an Israeli secret agent in Hollywood for years. Milchan produced movies such as The Revenant, 12 Years a Slave, The Big Short, Pretty Woman, Assassin’s Creed, A Time to Kill, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Fight Club, L. A. Confidential, Natural Born Killers, Under Siege, etc. Milchan openly admitted that he secretly helped Israel develop its nuclear warheads.
“Do you know what it was like to be a 20-something guy whose country decided to let him be James Bond? Wow! The action! That was exciting.”
With the help of Shimon Peres, Milchan operated in at least 17 countries just to get involved in covert activities for Israel.
Milchan also had closed ties with Hollywood actors and actresses such as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Robert de Niro, Russell Crowe, and Ben Affleck. De Niro admitted that he knew Milchan lived a double life. Both Shimon Peres and Benjamin Netanyahu used Milchan for espionage work against the U.S. Peres bragged:
“Arnon is a special man. It was I who recruited him. Working secretly, from outside the official system, he brought extraordinary ideas and a level of creativity that greatly contributed to our country.”
Does Milchan regret his actions? Nope. “I did it for my country and I’m proud of it,” he said. Milchan, Peres, Netanyahu, and the entire Israeli regime betrayed America, and no U.S. official has done a single thing about this. In fact, we keep hearing from political whores and prostitutes that Israel is America’s best ally.
Let us hope that the Weinstein debacle changed their minds. Weinstein, we are told,
“had the agencies ‘target,’ or collect information on, dozens of individuals, and compile psychological profiles that sometimes focused on their personal or sexual histories. Weinstein monitored the progress of the investigations personally. He also enlisted former employees from his film enterprises to join in the effort, collecting names and placing calls that, according to some sources who received them, felt intimidating.”
Perhaps it is high time for US officials to stop this unconditional support for Israel. Perhaps it is high time for the regime to taste its own bitter medicine. Perhaps it is high time for Americans to challenge the Israeli regime in Hollywood. Perhaps it is high time for actors and actresses to practical reason, which provides the basis for condemning people like Harvey Weinstein.
