NRA Board Member Ted Nugent Posts that Parkland Students Are Fake Actors

As reported by Media Matters, the “Motor City Madman” posted an article on his Facebook page pushing a right-wing conspiracy theory alleging survivors of Florida’s Parkland school massacre were “coached” actors.

The article, from noted fake news purveyor Natural News, claimed the students “were coached to repeat scripted lines, just like actors reading lines for a movie production” in order “to push a gun control narrative rooted in emotional reaction rather than constructive solutions.” Nugent later “liked” a comment left below the post article claiming that one of the students was “a paid crisis actor” who “has been at multiple shootings as a ‘survivor.'”

As Media Matters points out, much of the article was lifted from another site, The Gateway Pundit — which even InfoWars has accused of being “fake news.”

The Nuge, a National Rifle Association board member, has a long history of promoting right-wing conspiracy theories in the aftermath of gun violence.

“I’m not a crisis actor,” Hogg told CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Tuesday. “I’m someone who had to witness this and live through this and I continue to be having to do that.”

Nugent’s actions have been supported by some, but others are condeming the rocker. A statement released by Michigan Democratic Party Chair Brandon Dillon called Nugent “vile and disgusting” for “pushing the disgusting and harmful conspiracy theory.”

Trump Sued by Former Driver for Unpaid Wages

Polipace Staff

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.”
