    Whoa! What the hell! I saw nothing that Neer posted that was racist. What I saw – the other day was tons of pictures/videos on instagrams of the party and it was WILD – tons of barely dressed people and plenty of booze!

    ++++++++++++++++++

    Let me see if I have this right – Neer’s supposition that because black women were scantily clad that means they were available for “easy sex” and because black people were present there HAD to be “drugs” at the party, too, even though she has ZERO evidence – isn’t racist? Alrighty then. Good to know the definition of racism is so fluid for other races. Cuz as a black person – I found that to be straight up racist even if she didn’t mean for it sound that way. Were there picture of these scantily clad black women having sex at the party and other party-goers openly doing drugs? Cuz if not – that’s the very definition racist profiling. Plain and simple.

    And really – why does it matter what these women were wearing? Haven’t we just spent a month talking about Harvey Weinstein’s – and other sexual predattors’ – victims? Women should be able to wear whatever the hell they want without being seen as “easy” or sexually available. Sure, we joke about “Angie’s “Juan Valdez” look but nobody’s denied her right to wear whatever she wants – fug though some of us may think it. So why are these BLACK WOMEN being judged on what they were wearing? Clothes DO NOT mean a woman is available for “easy sex” – regardless of race.

    Sorry for the rant, but really…been black my entire life and at this point in my life I’ve certainly seen enough racism to know it when I see it.

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/house-dems-sue-records-trump-hotel-lease-160856792.html

    All 17 Democratic members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform today filed a novel lawsuit against the Trump administration to force it to turn over documents about the Trump International Hotel Washington, D.C. — records, they say, that will reveal details about how the president is personally profiting while in office.

    The lawsuit represents the latest legal challenge to Trump’s controversial decision to retain ownership of his international real estate firm, which operates the Trump International Hotel in a building leased from the government’s General Services Administration.

    “This hotel is not just a building with Donald Trump’s name on it,” said Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., the ranking Democrat on the House committee. “It is a glaring symbol of the Trump administration’s lack of accountability and a daily reminder of the refusal by Republicans in Congress to do their job. This may be standard operating procedure in foreign countries, but not here. Not in America.”

    Guided by a Georgetown law professor, the Democrats are employing an unusual legal tactic to get Trump International Hotel records: They are using an obscure law, enacted during the presidency of Calvin Coolidge, that authorizes any seven members of the House oversight panel to obtain records from a federal agency.

    The Trump International Hotel has been a lightning rod for the president’s critics ever since he took office in January. Almost immediately, the GSA stopped providing Congress with regular updates on the hotel’s expenses and profits under its government lease.

    Nevertheless, some records about the hotel’s operations have surfaced: In August, the GSA “inadvertently” posted “privileged and confidential” documents showing that the hotel earned $1.97 million in profits during the first four months of this year. The hotel has become a favorite of lobbying groups and foreign governments seeking to influence the administration.

    The documents showing the hotel’s profits have since been removed from the GSA website, and no further updates have been made available to the public or Congress. Asked for comment by Yahoo News, Pam Dixon, the GSA press secretary, emailed Thursday: “GSA does not comment on pending litigation.”

    The lawsuit seeks GSA documents including monthly expense records so that the committee can investigate “whether the Office of the Presidency is being used for private gain” and “the extent to which the Trump Hotel is receiving payments from foreign governments,” according to a “fact sheet” explaining the lawsuit, which was filed in federal court in Washington. The panel also wants to see records relating to why the GSA reversed an earlier legal interpretation of the lease, which prohibits any “elected official of the Government of the United States” from sharing in the profits of the hotel.

    The lawsuit is not the first to be filed over Trump’s business operations while he is serving as president. Three other suits have been filed contending that the president is receiving unconstitutional “emoluments” from foreign governments through his ownership of the hotel.

    A judge in New York is currently weighing a motion by the Justice Department to dismiss one of the suits on the grounds that the plaintiffs, including a liberal legal group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, lack standing to bring the case because they can’t show that they have been injured by the president’s conduct.

    But the new lawsuit being brought Thursday by the House members is significant because if it survives a court challenge, it could give congressional Democrats new leverage to pry documents out of the Trump administration on a host of other issues.

    Their case relies on the little-known “seven member” statute. Enacted in 1928 and signed by President Calvin Coolidge, it provides that any seven members of the principal House oversight committee can request — and receive — reports and documents from federal agencies.

    The law has only occasionally been used over the years, with varying results. Reps. Dennis Hastert (who went on to become speaker of the House) and Rob Portman (now a U.S. senator), both Republicans, successfully invoked the law in 1994 to obtain documents about a Texas savings and loan from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.

    But in 2006, when Rep. Henry Waxman, then the ranking Democrat on the House panel, along with other Democrats filed a lawsuit under the “seven member” statute to obtain Medicare records from the Bush administration, they lost on the grounds that they lacked “standing” to bring the case. (Before the Democrats had a chance to appeal, they regained control of the House that year, and the case became moot.)

    David C. Vladeck, a Georgetown University law professor who drafted the complaint being filed today, said the House Democratic case gained new traction last summer after the GSA notified Cummings in a letter that it would not turn over records about the Trump International Hotel. In doing so, a GSA official cited a new Justice Department Office of Legal Counsel opinion that the administration would produce records only when requested by a full committee or subcommittee (currently controlled by Republicans).

    “Individual members of Congress, including ranking minority members, do not have the authority to conduct oversight in the absence of a specific delegation by a full house, committee, or subcommittee,” the Justice Department legal opinion read.

    “They basically said, ‘We’re not going to give the stuff to Democrats,’” said Vladeck. But in so doing, he argued, they ignored the fine print in the 89-year-old “seven member statute” and gave the Democrats new grounds to bring their lawsuit.

    Cool. What a difference a year makes. She was said to be over in Hollywood this time last year and who would have thought those people would be Harvey, Spacey etc.

  • Observer2

    I have Neer on block, but, wait, what? The hell?

    She’s not one that thinks if a woman gets raped, it’s because of what they wore?

    And the hell about the drugs, etc. She does realize that there is an Opiod epidemic in the U.S. that started with prescription opiods and a lot of those people moved onto heroin because it was cheaper and now those people have moved onto Fentanyl. And guess, what, they’re mostly white people.

    I said, in the other thread, that since she hasn’t come back to say, she was sorry if she offended anyone, it’s not what she meant, means, to me, it is exactly what she meant.

    Damn.

    He’s such a dingus, lol. I thought he was sort of good looking at one point–he has a nice smile……..but I cannot even go there, because it’s like every time he opens his mouth, idiot falls out.

    He’s literally trying to make a new name for yoga (pliability)……..like he created it. Just say that you started doing yoga because your muscles were tight, idiot.

    LOL only people who said that were being paid by publicists to push ahead their clients. and probably film journalists who weren’t getting tips from her about projects she *may* or *may not* do.

    Sad, but I think that’s really it. I can see relying on tips, etc…..but when the majority of your articles are about deals that haven’t even been made yet? Go do some real journalism please.

    Being Hispanic/Native American I’ve seen a lot of racism myself. Being female I have gone through a lot also, that has affected me to this day when I go on a simple waIk.

    I must have misread it. I never saw Black mentioned. And scantily clad – I wasn’t just speaking of the women 😆 I really didn’t want to see a guy’s erection thru his glitter tights. – plus there was a lot of poses of grabbing body parts – just ugh. And please, I’m not saying that means easy sex – just tasteless looking.

    I could go on about stuff people have posted that have offended me, but I’m tired of the stirring up going on. And I won’t add to it, more than I already had. Tried keeping my mouth shut all this time but I do object to her being called a racist.

  • toastie postie

    Again, I didn’t see Neer say that. PT is probably talking about me and my distaste for the way many were dressed. Projecting for me, I guess, that I see that as easy sex.

  • toastie postie

    I cried a lot and happily at their reunion. Still amazing that they found each other.

  • Felinelilly

    ROTFLMAO.

  • Observer2

    I didn’t read Neer’s post, as I have her on block. Have for a long time.

    What I have taken from the comments regarding her post, is that she made the assumption from how some of the women were dressed, that it was a party where sex was readily available, that there were free flowing drugs, etc, even though, none of that has been seen in pics, or the videos posted.

    All of that is wrong on so many levels.

    It doesn’t seem like Brad was there that long, from what I’ve seen in the pics and the videos.

    Why couldn’t it have just been Brad stopping by to say Happy B-Day to a man that has become a friend of his?

    It seems that Neer implied that Brad was going to partake in easy sex, drugs and drinking and that’s just wrong to me.

    Well that is the first thing that is questioned when women are raped or harassed–what were you wearing? It doesn’t matter what they were wearing. And going to a party wearing “club” clothing, etc…….does not mean people are having sex on the tables. It means that’s the way they like to dress.

    If it wasn’t such a mess, I’d be glad to see her do it. But they seem to have not put any planning into it whatsoever. I mean, i know she’ll be amazing in it whether she does it or not……….but i do not see this franchise doing well.

  • lyric

    Such great news for Angie and Luong. They both deserve all of the accolades they receive for this great film.

  • toastie postie

    Very, very true. Just saying Neer wasn’t insinuating that. We are just going to have to agree to disagree on Neer.
    Hope school is going well.

  • bap

    Yes they do Lyric!

    Well I think she was. She was basically saying that because Brad went to this birthday party, he was spending all of his time drinking and having sex with randoms. And that because Angelina was being photographed with the kids, she’s the better parent. That’s exactly what she said.
