“That nature of this action is for damages and injunctive relief based on defamation arising from the (Ali’s) efforts to injure (Bolling’s) reputation through the intentional and/or highly reckless publication of actionable false and misleading statements about (Bolling’s) conduct and character,” the lawsuit alleges.

Ali’s tweet:

“Just received a summons. Eric Bolling is suing me for defamation – $50 million in damages, ” Yashar Ali, a HuffPost contributing writer, tweeted to his 140,000 Twitter followers on Wednesday. “I stand by my reporting + will protect my sources.”

GOOGLE FACES LAWSUITS FROM FIRED CONSERVATIVE ENGINEER JAMES DAMORE, CLASS ACTION FROM 60 WOMEN FOR SEXISM

Posted on

Sixty women consider suing Google over gender pay gap

  • Google fired software engineer James Damore on Monday after his internal ‘anti-women’ memo about company went viral
  • Damore: ‘Google’s left bias has created a politically correct monoculture that maintains its hold by shaming dissenters into silence. This silence removes any checks against encroaching extremist and authoritarian policies,’
  • ‘Conservatives are a minority that feel like they need to stay in the closet to avoid open hostility. We should empower those with different ideologies to be able to express themselves
  • Lawyers said that there could be First Amendment grounds for legal action – a prospect Google is unlikely to relish

 

  • More than 60 women are considering suing Google for alleged sexism, claiming female employees are being paid less than men despite having the same qualifications.
  •  Damore, who graduated from Harvard in 2013 with a doctoral degree in systems biology, had claimed that women could not get ahead at Google because of biological differences

BIG! HANNITY THREATENS ‘BIGGEST LAWSUIT’ AGAINST OBAMA ADMIN IF HE WAS SPIED ON AND UNMASKED BY NSA

Posted on Updated on

 

  • Hannity: “I am going to sanction the biggest lawsuit that I possibly can with the biggest attorneys in the country so we can do something to stop the shredding of the Constitution,”

 

Fox News Sean Hannity says he is prepared to sue the Obama administration if it is revealed he was subject to illegal NSA ‘unmasking.

 

Infowars reports:

 

Fox News host Sean Hannity has laid down a challenge that he will sue the Obama administration if it turns out he was under NSA surveillance and his name was “unmasked” either within the administration or to members of the press.

“I am going to sanction the biggest lawsuit that I possibly can with the biggest attorneys in the country so we can do something to stop the shredding of the Constitution,” Hannity said in a radio broadcast on Aug. 4, noting that he has on “pretty good authority” that he was under Obama administration NSA electronic surveillance and that the Obama administration “unmasked” his name.

On March 20, Infowars.com published records obtained from Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse that individual records of hundreds of thousands of U.S. citizens were under National Security Agency (NSA) electronic surveillance in the years 2004 through 2010, in a database that suggests both Donald J. Trump and Alex Jones were under illegal, unauthorized government monitoring during those years.

Fox News reported on June 23 that Judicial Watch was unable to obtain records on Trump’s 2016 campaign team “unmasking” because all relevant NSA records have been transferred to President Obama’s yet-unopened presidential library and will not be available to the public for five years.

Disclosure of the names of U.S. citizens identified through the course of NSA electronic surveillance of foreign operatives under FISA-court authorization is a federal crime, regardless whether the “unmasking” involves disclosure within the government or to outside sources, including the press.

 

Sean Hannity was a guest on ‘Rose Unplugged‘ and gave his reaction to these allegations.

Hannity: “You know, look..I’m only reading the same things that you’re reading and I don’t have any confirmation at all, but apparently somebody is saying that there was surveillance of me and unmasking of me. Now, I have no knowledge of it, Rose. We’re friends..I always tell the straight up truth…

…And I will say this, if it ever does turn out to be true, I will be filing suit because, you know they can’t say that is incidental surveillance because that would be that there was no way…because I don’t do anything nefarious and that would mean that I would have been a target of a political….you know if political surveillance took place of me, I will sue everybody involved. I promise you.”

Rose: “Good for you!”

Hannity: “They will have to be deposed and go under oath and I will have civil action against anybody that might have been involved in that, but honestly I have no knowledge. I see what everybody else is seeing, my friends are seeing. I’ve been saying on Twitter that I have no knowledge of it…so but there have been stories all over the place about it but I really don’t know.

ERIC BOLLING ACCUSER CAROLINE HELDMAN ALSO ACCUSED O’REILLY AND FOX PRODUCER WOODY FRASER WHO ALLEGEDLY STOLE ‘THE FIVE’ IDEA FROM HER

Posted on Updated on

 

  • Eric Bolling’s accuser Caroline Heldman is a left-wing anti-Trump professor, Fox News contributor from 2008-2001, who also accused Bill O’Reilly of sexual harassment
  • Heldman claims Fox producer Woody Fraser stole her ‘idea for a show that would become The Five’
  • Claims Fraser  ‘dangled a contributorship and a hosting position for a sexual relationship; then stopped my appearances when I didn’t acquiesce to his advances.’
  • Claim: “Fraser took me under his wing as a mentor; constantly pressured me for a relationship and sex”
  • Heldman: Bolling referred to me as “Dr. McHottie” on air on four different occasions, and called me “smart, beautiful, and wrong” on air twice.
  • Bolling’s lawyer : “Mr. Bolling recalls no such inappropriate communications, does not believe he sent any such communications and will vigorously pursue his legal remedies for any false and defamatory accusations that are made.”
  • Fox News spokesperson: “Eric Bolling has been suspended pending the results of an investigation, which is currently underway.”

Big League Politics reports:

Suspended Fox News host Eric Bolling’s first public accuser is a major left-wing activist who held a protest sign at President Trump’s inauguration accusing the president of being a rapist.

Caroline Heldman, an Occidental College professor who appeared on Fox News, reportedly “filed a sexual harassment complaint just hours before Fox News announced O’Reilly’s departure,” according to People magazine.

Now, she is back to accuse Eric Bolling, a major Trump supporter at the network. Here is Philly.com’s report:

Hours after Fox News announced it was suspending Bolling, Caroline Heldman, a politics professor at Occidental College and frequent guest on the network from 2008 to 2011, claimed the Fox News host made an unspecified number of unsolicited sexual advances to her.

“[Bolling] said he wanted to fly me out to New York for in-studio hits and to have ‘fun.’ He asked me to have meals with him on several occasions, but I found excuses not to go,” Heldman wrote in a lengthy Facebook post. “Once, he took me up to his office in New York, showed me his baseball jerseys, and in the brief time I was there, let me know that his office was his favorite place to have sex.”

Bolling’s team is denying the accusations. Heldman’s social media profiles show her to be a staunch left-wing feminist activist.

 

 

Caroline Heldman  Facebook post about Bolling:

** Long Post, TW for Sexual Harassment**

Fox News just suspended Eric Bolling pending allegations that he sent photos of his genitalia to female colleagues. My only surprise is that it took this long for people to come forward about Bolling’s behavior, which has been wildly inappropriate for years.

I did hundreds of appearances on Fox and Fox Business from 2008 – 2011, and had multiple experiences with Bolling that caused grave concern to my friends and family. Bolling referred to me as “Dr. McHottie” on air on four different occasions, and called me “smart, beautiful, and wrong” on air twice. I pushed back with “Mr. McSexist,” but I shouldn’t have had to. This on-air behavior was perfectly acceptable to Fox executives at the time.

Bolling would also contact me via phone and text after shows, sometimes to apologize for his behavior (and then do it again), and sometimes just to talk. He said he wanted to fly me out to New York for in-studio hits and to have “fun.” He asked me to have meals with him on several occasions, but I found excuses not to go. Once, he took me up to his office in New York, showed me his baseball jerseys, and in the brief time I was there, let me know that his office was his favorite place to have sex. I know other women have had similar experiences with Bolling, which means that lots of folks at Fox knew about his behavior well before 2017.

Bolling was one of three men from whom I experienced sexual harassment and gender discrimination (the others being Bill O’Reilly and Woody Fraser).

O’Reilly was creepy in person; told me “when I was in college, professors didn’t look like you”; then called me “hysterical” during a show, edited the interview, and retaliated by never having me on his show again. http://www.msnbc.com/…/3-accusers-on-trump-s-defense-of-o-r…

Fraser took me under his wing as a mentor; constantly pressured me for a relationship and sex; took an idea for a show that would become The Five (I emailed Fraser a treatment that is remarkably similar to The Five, right down to some of the hosts, a year before The Five aired); dangled a contributorship and a hosting position for a sexual relationship; then stopped my appearances when I didn’t acquiesce to his advances. http://www.motherjones.com/…/fox-news-sexual-harassment-he…/

 

 

 

 

ROBERT MUELLER’S TEAM BOUGHT PROFESSIONAL LIABILITY INSURANCE IN CASE THEY GET SUED…LAWBREAKERS!

Posted on

 

Let them hang themselves over their fake Russia probe!

Witch Hunt Special Counsel Robert Muller’s team of investigators from Obama and Clinton Inc. are deeply concerned they are going to get sued for their Russia witch hunt probe they bought liability insurance against potential retaliatory lawsuits.

 

Daily Caller reports:

“Department of Justice investigators purchased liability insurance to guard themselves against potential retaliatory lawsuits brought by the subjects they’re investigating as part of the Russia probe.

The Department would cover any legal fees incurred in the course of duty. However, a number of investigators opted to purchase extra protection as the probe moves further into examining President Donald Trump’s finances and those of his associates, a source familiar with the investigation told CNN.

The investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election led by special counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly expanded into examining possible financial crimes unrelated to Russian election interference.

Trump, who has repeatedly slammed the investigation as a “witch hunt,” argued in a July interview with The New York Times that his financial transactions represented a red line that Mueller should not cross in his investigation.

Mueller does, however, have the authority to investigate Trump’s finances as part of the broad investigative mandate bestowed upon him by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Mueller has the authority to investigate any matters that “arose or may arise directly from the investigation,” according to Rosenstein’s order appointing Mueller as special counsel.”

 

 

BEHIND ROD WHEELER’S ‘SETH RICH’ LAWSUIT AGAINST FOX NEWS AND ED BUTOWSKY

Posted on

 

  • Rod Wheeler charges that a Fox News reporter, Malia Zimmerman, created quotations out of thin air and attributed them to him to propel her story.
  • Wheeler, an African-American, is also suing the network for racial discrimination, saying he failed to advance as prominently as white counterparts. Fox News had no comment on that allegation
  • Zimmerman’s online story cites an unnamed “federal investigator who reviewed an FBI report” for its findings. It also cites Wheeler, incorporating two key quotations from Wheeler that do not appear on video. In each, the private eye seemingly takes ownership of the accusations.
  • Rod Wheeler pre-empted  Fox News scoop by talking to local Fox 5DC: “The police department nor the FBI have been forthcoming,” Wheeler tells the station. “They haven’t been cooperating at all. I believe that the answer to solving his death lies on that computer, which I believe is either at the police department or either at the FBI. I have been told both.”
  • Fox’s president of news, Jay Wallace, told NPR on Monday there was no “concrete evidence” that Wheeler was misquoted Malia Zimmerman
  • Trump supporter Ed Butowsky offered to pay for Wheeler to investigate the death of the DNC aide, Seth Rich, on behalf of his grieving parents in Omaha, Neb
  • April 20, a month before the story ran, Butowsky and Wheeler — the investor and the investigator — met at the White House with then-press secretary Sean Spicer to brief him on what they were uncovering.
  • Wheeler was a paid Fox News contributor since 2005. He alleges the story was orchestrated behind the scenes and from the outset by Butowsky, the Dallas wealth management consultant and also Fox News commentator, who hired him for the Rich family.
  • His suit alleges Fox News defamed him by manufacturing two false quotations, attributing them to him and ruining his reputation by blaming him
  • WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange cryptically suggested that Seth Rich death may have been related to the leaks of tens of thousands of emails from Democratic Party officials and their allies at the peak of the presidential campaign
  • The FBI informs Butowsky, Wheeler and Zimmerman that the agency is not assisting Washington, D.C., local police on the investigation — undercutting claims about an FBI report.

AMBUSHED COP SUES BLACK LIVES MATTER AFTER WOUNDED IN DEADLY BATON ROUGE AMBUSH

Posted on

 

  • The suit does not name the officer, but its description of the plaintiff matches that of East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Deputy Nicholas Tullier, who has injured during the ambush

 

( Fox News ) An unnamed Louisiana officer has sued Black Lives Matter and several of the movement’s leaders Friday after last summer’s ambush of law enforcement officers in Baton Rouge.

DeRay Mckesson, a member of the activist movement who has been involved in the Ferguson, Mo. and Baltimore, Md. protests, and four other Black Lives Matter leaders have been named as defendants in the suit. It was filed on behalf of one of the officers wounded in the July 17 attack by Gavin Long, a black military veteran, who killed three other officers in Baton Rouge before he was shot dead.

The suit does not name the officer, but its description of the plaintiff matches that of East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Deputy Nicholas Tullier, who has injured during the ambush.

Long shot Tullier in the head, stomach and shoulder, leaving him with brain damage. In December 2016, the 42-year-old father of two emerged from a vegetative state and regained some movement in his body.

The same attorneys who filed Friday’s suit previously sued Black Lives Matter and Mckesson on behalf of a Baton Rouge police officer who was injured last year at a July 9 protest over a deadly police shooting.

“This is quite a world,” Mckesson told reporters on Friday when informed about the lawsuit.

Long, 29, from Kansas City, Mo., was armed with a semi-automatic rifle when he killed three officers and wounded three others outside a convenience store and car wash near Baton Rouge police headquarters.
