While the Koch Brothers are mainly known for their conservative viewpoints and funding anti-environmentalist groups. They announced that they will be spending millions of dollars to support “Dreamers” and their goal of becoming citizens.

According to the Koch Brothers in a statement said, . “Immigrants are essential to the success of our country and addressing the plight of the dreamers is a top priority for this network,” said Brian Hook, co-chairman of the Seminar Network.

“We cannot support arbitrary cuts to future legal immigration levels,” said Daniel Garza, president of The LIBRE Initiative, which is backed by the Koch brothers. “We welcome a debate about whether our current legal immigration policy properly balances family and skills-based migration. But that broad debate should not distract from the immediate goal of providing certainty to Dreamers and enhancing security.”

We must do better. The United States is at its best when all people are free to pursue their dreams. Our country has enjoyed unparalleled success by welcoming people from around the world who seek to make a better life for themselves and their families, no matter what their backgrounds.

Now, the rest of us need to do our part. Congress should act quickly, ideally before year’s end, to ensure that these decent people can work and stay and dream in the United States. As a nation, we must show that the dreamers’ faith in our word and goodwill was not misplaced.

Trump Sued by Former Driver for Unpaid Wages

Published

Turns out that Donald Trump eventually screws everyone, including his personal driver of 20 years. The driver, Noel Cintron says he “was forced to work thousands of hours of overtime without compensation” before Secret Service took over the job of ferrying President Trump. Cintron no longer drives the president but his service to the Trump Organization allegedly continues as a member of its security staff.

Represented by the firm Davidoff Hutcher & Citron, the July 9 suit in Manhattan Supreme Court demands compensation for six years of service under the applicable statute of limitations.

A representative for the Trump Organization insisted on anonymity to relay comment on the suit.

“Mr. Cintron was at all times paid generously and in accordance with the law,” the representative said. “Once the facts come out we expect to be fully vindicated in court.”

For the last eight years, according to the complaint, Cintron has been earning $75,000 a year. This is up $7,000 from Cintron’s last raise in 2006, but the driver disputes that the 2010 salary was actually a raise since it came at the expense of his health insurance. By paying Cintron a little more, the Trump Organization allegedly saved itself $17,866.08 per year in premiums.

The first page of Cintron’s 14-page lawsuit is rife with indignation. “In an utterly callous display of unwarranted privilege and entitlement and without even a minimal sense of noblesse oblige President Donald Trump has, through the defendant entities, exploited and denied significant wages to his own longstanding personal driver,” it states.

Later the complaint says: “President Trump’s further callousness and cupidity is further demonstrated by the fact that while he is purportedly a billionaire, he has not given his personal driver a meaningful raise in over 12 years!”

Cintron’s schedule at the Trump Organization has allegdly been a grueling one: five days a week, from approximately 7 a.m. “to whenever Donald Trump, his family or business associates no longer required his plaintiff’s services.” Typically this works out to at least a 50-hour week.

Because Trump required Cintron “to be ready … at a moment’s notice,” according to the complaint, the time in between trips could not be used for Cintron’s personal errands.

Cintron calculates that, on top of his regular pay, Trump should have paid him about $540 in overtime pay per week which is time and a half for 550 hours of uncompensated overtime per year for the past six years.

The driver’s duties also allegedly involved performing running personal errands for his supervisor at the Trump Organization, Matthew Calamari, who used to be the president’s bodyguard.

Trump has also neglected to reimburse Cintron for accrued vacation time, accrued sick days and expenses, according to the complaint.

Cintron seeks damages under federal and New York labor law. Both the Trump Organization and Trump Tower Commercial LLC are named as defendants.

Having intervened in federal proceedings involving Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, the Trump Organization is represented by Law Offices of Alan S. Futerfas.

In 2015, Newsweek quoted another personal driver of Trump’s, Eddie Diaz, as saying that the real estate mogul insisted on being chauffered in American cars. Diaz also reportedly said that he and his passenger ate together regularly, with Trump only footing the bill “once in a while.”

The Secret Service took up residence inside Trump Tower in late 2015 but had to relocate to a trailer just outside a midtown skyscraper in August 2017 after a lease agreement with the Trump Organization fell apart.

If you’re to believe the video of Andreya Monique of Ohio State University, The O Patio and Pub is not terribly welcoming to people of color in general, and most this patron had to deal with “White Power Chants” from customers.

Jeanine Pirro May Be Next Attorney General and Wants to Prosecute Clinton and Comey

Jeanine Pirro, who named herself “Judge Jeanine,” of FoxNews has been lobbying Trump and congress to be the next Attorney General. While people might not be taking this seriously, Trump on the other hand has been picking possible replacements in government from FoxNews commentators for some time including the seemingly doomed Ambassorship of Richard Grenell — who appeared on FoxNews for sometime.

Jeanine has spoken to Congressional aides according to a friend of mine, and even shared her plans to Prosecute Clinton and Comey, if assigned the job. It’s clear she is attempting to get Trump’s attention, and offering a “way out” for him.

Despite originally claiming that Comey was a “hero in Washington,” she’s now gone as far to call him a “leftist liberal.”
