Hundreds allege Donald Trump doesn’t pay his bills

Petty thug owes thousands of people money.

Donald Trump often portrays himself as a savior of the working class who will “protect your job.” But a USA TODAY NETWORK analysis found he has been involved in more than 3,500 lawsuits over the past three decades — and a large number of those involve ordinary Americans, like the Friels, who say Trump or his companies have refused to pay them.

Fracking Victim Sued by Frackers

Note the part about the EPA being called off and backpedaling.  The actual science is being tossed aside to please the fracking industry, and individual homeowners are now openly poisoned and attacked in the courts.  Business as usual.

These geniuses are the same ones demanding that even dumber cretins in congress fuck up the Internet for everybody … TorrentFreak: Movie Studios Ask Google To Censor Their Own Films, Facebook and Wikipedia

  • On behalf of Lionsgate a DMCA notice was sent to Google, asking the search engine to remove links to infringing copies of the movie “Cabin in the Woods”. The notice in question only lists two dozen URLs, but still manages to include perfectly legal copies of the film on Amazon, iTunes, Blockbuster and Xfinity.

  • 20th Century Fox sent in a DMCA notice to protect the movie “Prometheus”. However, as collateral damage it also took down a link to a legal copy on Verizon on demand, the collection of the Prometheus Watch Company, and a Huffington Post article.

  • And what about a DMCA takedown request for the Wikipedia entry of “Family Guy” that is supposedly infringing?

  • Perhaps even more crazy is another request sent on behalf of 20th Century Fox for “How I Met Your Mother”. The DMCA notice lists a CBS URL as the official source of the copyrighted material, but the same URL later appears in the list of infringing links.

UPDATE

The plot thickens? The legal firm sending the notices may itself be a fraud.

Update: Yesitis.org now points to a parked page. Yet another sign that these notices may be fraudulent, and not authorized by the copyright holders at all. If that’s indeed the case it remains unclear what the purpose of these notices is. It would show how easily these DMCA notices can be abused.

But, I’m not going to let the studios slide so easily if this front is a hoax — the Yes Men in action??? It is called “Yes it is” after all…
