In ANY type of criminal case, Rape, Assault, Robbery etc., a person can be convicted solely on the word of a complainant.
If you think that's not enough in a Rape case, you should be similarly concerned about every other type of criminal prosecution.
Until relatively recently in most US states, in order to prosecute rape cases there was an additional legal requirement of "Corroboration." This was only needed in rape cases. So in a robbery case, I could say you stole $1000 from me & that would be enough for a conviction.
But in a rape case, there had to be something more, for instance, an eyewitness. Clearly rape cases were the least likely to have this sort of "corroborating" evidence, by their very nature, so to require this extra proof was illogical & unfair.
I see a lot folks, men & women, counter those #MeToo victims who are outing their tormentors after an ‘extended’ period saying that there was always a choice to walk away, that strong women give it back , why speak up now, when they were ‘complicit’ & ‘agreed’ to be exploited ...
I'm ashamed to admit that I used to share such sentiments when the #Weinstein stories first began coming out. ( Yes it’s been a while, and that’s how long it’s taken, to now , finally become a talking point here). As I spoke to other women, I realised not everyone is 'strong' .
1. Woke up 3hrs too early, queasy and stressed. 2mins from now, we will likely be witness to a national misogynistic sham so deep and so blatant as to prove once and for all that the powerbrokers of US government do not believe women are human. #Kavanaugh#BelieveSurvivors#RAGE
3. 0 reason other than corruption, misogyny, and partisanship for having no witnesses, no FBI investigation. Yet hypocrite Grassley, opens saying he wants a "Safe, comfortable, and dignified" hearing and a "show of civility"--then immediately misrepresents the issues. #Kavanaugh
Say Goodbye to Hollywood. Young and free, you head west to be a big star. What's the first thing you do when you get there? You change your name. You erase your history. You pick something that sounds good. You listen to the fantasy roll out of the tongue and decide, "that's me!"
This is #disassociation. The identity detaches from the person and forms a white bubble of light. They call this their center. The outside world does not know the secret. #Hollywood only wants their illusion. It is a death march into the sunshine. This is a sacrificial ritual.
The #satanic ritual requires a circle (white bubble) and it requires a sacrifice (the self). The quality of the sacrifice gives them more power. See Harvey Weinstein ritual. See the golden trophy ritual. Without molestation, there could be no #Hollywood. The magic would not work.

You didn't know #AnthonyBourdain. You know nothing about his life, torments, demons, nothing. You didn't know #KateSpade either. Watch the torrents of albeit genuine but odd shows of public grief to two complete strangers but nothing for the 20 vets who commit suicide daily.
You want to mourn #suicide? Mourn this. In 2013, the US Department of Veterans Affairs released a study that covered suicides from 1999 to 2010: roughly 22 veterans were dying by suicide per day, or one every 65 minutes. Some suggest that this rate may be undercounting suicides.

This is significant because the feds announced they were pursuing their own sex crimes case. The Manhattan DA has been pussyfooting around for too long making references to using a “Capone style“ prosecution. Sorry, Al, that just went out the window. nydn.us/2KNyu4H
Let me dream for a moment of a merger of the evidence against Weinstein with a certain laptop that used to belong to one Anthony Weiner. Imagine a cross-referencing of the most monumentally horrible evidence showing systemic sexual predation at the highest levels.
As if it couldn’t get any more tantalizing, this. I can’t emphasize enough how explosive this is, these multiple platforms convening and converging simultaneously. And let’s not forget #NXIVM for good measure. #Epstein thought he was off the hook. vault.fbi.gov/jeffrey-epstein
RED PILL ALERT
After the Royals Rosemary Baby thing I said that's it
The last red pill
But that was Friday
This is Monday
I began wondering why Q posted about the #EmmyAwards
Like seriously, why??
Why he said Red carpet event
The Emmys are the awards of the
National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences
Or backwards, SATAN
Cette période post #Weinstein est vraiment très intéressante, ici à #Hollywood, où les cartes semblent rebattues comme jamais, d'autant plus avec les Oscars qui arrivent.
Intéressant notamment de discuter avec des Français installés depuis longtemps à Los Angeles et qui ont connu le milieu du cinéma en France et à Hollywood. Leur double regard plus libre permet de saisir l'ampleur du système. #Weinstein
Je cite l'un d'eux qui a essayé d'être acteur il y a une vingtaine d'années : "très vite tu comprends que si tu veux faire partie des 1% qui sont pris pour un vrai rôle, tu dois y passer. Ca n'est pas une option : c'est comme ça." #Weinstein
From 2007 to 2011, he served in leadership roles at the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), ultimately serving as Chief of Staff to FBI Director Robert S. Mueller, III
When Rajesh De, the chief lawyer for the National Security Agency, needs a special court order so the agency can spy on potential security threats, he turns to John P. Carlin and his team of attorneys in the Justice Department to advocate for the new authority.
So he wanna but the #Panthers P #Diddy needs to overcome his past first...he was w Rachel Chandler at age 14 right after Bill Clinton flew her on Jeffrey Epsteins plane, #LolitaExpress.
2/ All kinds of people flew with Bill on #LolitaExpress to the underage island of sex. Kevin Spacey, Chris Tucker, his personal secret service agent, etc. Here he is on Jeffrey Epsteins plane w Rachel.
3/ Blown up flight logs from Jeffrey Epsteins plane, Lolita Express.
