The Contrarian

“In the investment markets, what everyone knows is usually not worth knowing.”

“Women’s rights” is a game for profit, not ‘rights’

Gloria Allred, a civil-rights attorney, has built her long career on allegedly “protecting” famous women from their powerful male bosses. Her daughter is attorney Lisa Bloom, who makes her living with the same ‘specialty.’ However, when movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual harassment and worse of film stars became public, Bloom started representing him. Perhaps that was more profitable than representing the poor victims.

It even gets better:  now Fox reports that in 2016 Lisa Bloom she solicited cash for women who would claim that they were sexually harassed by Trump. She apparently would take 33% of the cash as her fee. Nothing wrong with that, right?

Yes, just watch the money.

ZeroHedge offers some excellent insight into the topic:

California woman’s rights Attorney Lisa Bloom operated behind a scheme to compensate Trump accusers and potential accusers using money from donors and tabloid media outlets during the final months of the 2016 presidential race, in an effort which intensified as the election neared, report John Solomon and Alison Spann of The Hill.

Lisa Bloom’s efforts included offering to sell alleged victims’ stories to TV outlets in return for a commission for herself, arranging a donor to pay off one Trump accuser’s mortgage and attempting to secure a six-figure payment for another woman who ultimately declined to come forward after being offered as much as $750,000, the clients told The Hill. –The Hill

The trail of money goes even deeper. Sexual harassment cases should not be a “for profit” venture. It should not be about the money and, it appears, there was little true need for justice in this situation.

The Hill dives deeper in their recent article:

A well-known women’s rights lawyer sought to arrange compensation from donors and tabloid media outlets for women who made or considered making sexual misconduct allegations against Donald Trump during the final months of the 2016 presidential race, according to documents and interviews.

California lawyer Lisa Bloom’s efforts included offering to sell alleged victims’ stories to TV outlets in return for a commission for herself, arranging a donor to pay off one Trump accuser’s mortgage and attempting to secure a six-figure payment for another woman who ultimately declined to come forward after being offered as much as $750,000, the clients told The Hill.

The women’s accounts were chronicled in contemporaneous contractual documents, emails and text messages reviewed by The Hill, including an exchange of texts between one woman and Bloom that suggested political action committees supporting Hillary Clinton were contacted during the effort.

Bloom, who has assisted dozens of women in prominent harassment cases and also defended film executive Harvey Weinstein earlier this year, represented four women considering making accusations against Trump last year. Two went public, and two declined.

My View: The profit-seeking vultures have found a new victim among the American people, sexual assault, and harassment victims. It seems there is nowhere the vehemently (and undemocratically) anti-Trump crowd won’t go. They will tarnish the image of true victims with corruption and payoffs of false victims. There is a sense of moral decay in the media and in Washington. They have no honor.
