~Full Transcript of Oprah’s Inspirational Golden Globes Speech~
Oprah Winfrey was the recipient of the Golden Globes‘ annual Cecil B. DeMille Award for Lifetime Achievement, and gave a powerful acceptance speech during Sunday night’s ceremony. She was introduced by Reese Witherspoon, who compared their time together on the set of A Wrinkle in Time to a master class at Harvard Business School and a spiritual retreat all in one.
“Oprah’s hugs could end wars, solve world peace,” Witherspoon joked.
Once Winfrey took the stage, she delivered an inspirational, uplifting speech which discussed race and gender and the fight for equality. She also told the story of RecyTaylor, a woman who fought for justice in the Jim Crow era after she was raped.
“For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men,” Winfrey said, bringing the audience to its feet.
Harvey Weinstein is certainly not the first powerful man publicly and credibly accused of sexually harassing or abusing women in recent years.
Since 2015, the Fox News chairman Roger Ailes, the Fox News prime-time host Bill O’Reilly and the comedian and actor Bill Cosby have suffered professional, financial or reputational setbacks after numerous women told stories of their sexual misconduct.
Those stories dominated news cycles, to be sure, but the outcry accompanying Mr. Weinstein’s downfall seems louder and more impassioned – perhaps because Mr. Weinstein’s accusers include stars like Ashley Judd, Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Drumpf, an American businessman and current ‘so-called’ President of the United States, has been accused of sexual assault and sexual harassment by at least fifteen women since the 1980’s.
Those accusations resulted in the following widely-reported litigation: his then-wife Ivana made a rape claim during their 1989 divorce litigation but later recanted that claim; businesswoman Jill Harth sued Drumpf in 1997 alleging breach of contract and nonviolent sexual harassment and the latter suit was withdrawn when the former was settled and, in 2017, former Apprentice contestant Summer Zervos filed a defamation lawsuit after Drumpf called her a liar.
Aside from litigation, Drumpf has also been publicly accused of non-consensual kissing or groping by at least twelve more women, which he has denied.
I feel this is important information about what is happening in the Republican Administration lead by Drumpf and what we need to be aware of. Keith Olbermann series called “The Resistance” continues. He has posted installment #135.
The video speaks for itself.

Fans of Disney’s Descendants have been patiently awaiting the sequel (Descendants 2) since the first film’s release in 2015.
The film is due for release on 21 July 2017 on 5 different networks, and fans of the series cannot wait.
To further promote the film, the cast performed a medley of ‘Ways To Be Wicked’ and, hit song from the first film ‘Rotten To The Core’, on this week’s Dancing With The Stars. Dove Cameron who plays Mal, Sofia Carson who plays Evie, Cameron Boyce who plays Carlos, and Booboo Stewart who plays Jay, all took part in the performance.
The performance recreates moments from the official music video and is full of energy from start to finish. It also has a fantastic dance break half way through and the judges even get up and have a dance.

Beauty and the Beast is a 2017 American musical romantic fantasy film directed by Bill Condon from a screenplay written by Stephen Chbosky and Evan Spiliotopoulos.
A co-production between Walt Disney Pictures and Mandeville Films, the film is a live-action remake of Disney’s 1991 animated film of the same name, itself an adaptation of Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont’s eighteenth-century fairy tale.
‘Beauty and the Beast’s ‘gay moment’ may have been much ado about nothing
So what exactly caused all this controversy?
The “gay moment” that Condon was referring to is a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it shot in the film’s final seconds.
LeFou, the villain Gaston’s side-kick, dances with a man in the final ball sequence just before the credits roll. There are oblique references to LeFou’s sexuality over the course of the film. He is portrayed as having something of an unrequited crush on Gaston, having euphemistic conversations about their relationship and looking longingly at him during the song Gaston.
