Faux scientist Bill Nye who wants to redistribute wealth is suing Disney for $37 million in profits

bill nye

Back in 2015 the libtard hack Bill Nye said this (from Weasel Zippers):

“Speaking to students at the University at Albany, Bill Nye the Science Guy said that a carbon tax was needed for the purpose of redistributing wealth.

“We need, dare I say it, a tax, or should I say a fee,” Nye purportedly said Wednesday, right before an anonymous student began recording.“It’s not just to be mean, it’s to redistribute wealth,” Nye said.

Nye went on to claim that instituting such a tax would drive innovation in more environmentally friendly ways.

“It will stimulate people investing in more energy efficient means. If you gotta pay a fee every time you make carbon monoxie and somone comes up with a more efficient car, you’ll use that car. Somebody comes up with a more efficient blender, you’ll use that blender. I mean, that’s just how it’s going to go.

How much of that $37 million Nye deems is his do you think he will redistribute? If he’s like every other good little socialist, it will be a big fat ZERO.

From NY Post: Bill Nye is suing the Walt Disney Company and a host of its subsidiaries today for more than $37 million, alleging he didn’t receive his fair share of the net profits generated by his long-running series “Bill Nye the Science Guy.”

“Plaintiff is informed and believes and thereon alleges that as a direct and proximate result of the Defendants’ breach of fiduciary duty, Plaintiff has suffered damages in the amount of not less than Nine Million Three Hundred Fifty Thousand Five Hundred Sixty dollars (USD$9,350,565.00), the final amount to be proven at trial,” says the complaint, dropping some big bucks demands (read it here).

And then the big bucks get bigger, like three times bigger.

“Plaintiff is further informed and believes and thereon alleges that the Defendants, by breaching their fiduciary duties, enriched themselves, at the expense of the Plaintiff and the BNSG Owners, obtaining ill-gotten profits of not less than Twenty Eight Million Fifty One Thousand Six Hundred Ninety Five dollars (USD$28,051,695.00),” Nye figures in some math at Disney’s expense that alleges to be at his expense.

The 28-page suit, filed Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court, says Nye received a check in April 2008 for $585,000 as his share of the net profits. However, a few months later, Buena Vista Television sent a second letter retracting its prior calculations. According to the second letter, Nye instead owed BTV $496,111.

Deadline has reached out to Disney for comment but has not heard back.

“Bill Nye the Science Guy” ran on PBS from 1994 to 1999 and also was syndicated to local stations. The show aired for 100 half-hour episodes spanning five seasons and was nominated for 23 Emmy Awards, winning 19.

The suit that Nye and his lawyers put before the court contends that “the disturbing size of the supposed ‘accounting error,’ coupled with the seeming indifference of both BVT and WDC, left Nye suspicious of the veracity of the accounting.”

Nye claims he stopped receiving royalty or participation payments as of July 22, 2008, with the suit stating accountants insisted that he first repay the amount allegedly owed from the “overpayment.”

Formally, Nye’s action claims fraudulent concealment, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, and various accounting issues.

On the attorney front, Nye is represented by Burbank’s Hamrick & Evans LLP.

Two police officers suing socialist Seattle councilmember Kshama Sawant for her irresponsible comments

sawant always screaming

Socialist Sawant…maybe having to pay for spreading lies will help keep her mouth shut.

Good. This socialist has been blabbing false truths since she took office.

From MyNorthwest.com: Seattle police officers Scott Miller and Detective Michael Spaulding are suing Kshama Sawant as an individual for “having their reputations ruined by an ambitious politician, doing so for personal gain.”

The lawsuit, filed by Williams, Kastney and Gibbs, claims Sawant, acting beyond her scope as a city councilmember, personally defamed the two officers who were involved in the shooting death against Che Taylor after he allegedly pulled a gun on them. A gun was found at the scene and a witness corroborates the story from Miller and Spaulding. A King County inquest jury found that Taylor, indeed, posed a threat of death or serious injury to these two officers.

According to the filing, “…having never spoken to the officers, their attorney, the department, and with the investigation still incomplete, Kshama Sawant was publicly pronouncing these officers ‘murderers’ and referring to the shooting as a product of ‘racial profiling.’ As a consequence of her rhetoric, the lawsuit alleges the officers were “publicly berated and chastised” and Miller had to move.

“Citizens of this community have this right (to file the lawsuit),” said Kevin Stuckey, president of the Seattle Police Officers Guild. “Kshama Sawant said those things but it’s up to a jury to decide.”

This is the second lawsuit filed against Sawant this month. Carl Haglund’s attorney says Sawant introduced a law prohibiting landlords from raising rents for buildings that do not meet basic maintenance standards. She referred to the legislation as “the Carl Haglund law.”

Report claims Bernie’s wife attempted to evict disabled group home residents

Jane and Bernie Sanders

Jane and Bernie Sanders, faux socialists

Well, this is an interesting development in the “political witch hunt” against him and his wife. Apparently there was no room in one of the Sanders’ three homes to help out the disabled residents…

From Fox News: Sen. Bernie Sanders’s wife has been accused of heartlessly trying to boot disabled group home residents when she was president of a Vermont college and closed on a real estate deal now under FBI scrutiny.

The home with 16 residents was on property Jane O’Meara Sanders purchased for Burlington College in 2010 as part of an expansion project, the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch claimed Thursday.

Reports this week say Sanders is under FBI investigation in connection with her role in securing financing for the project which didn’t pan out and led to the college’s closure.

Sanders and Sen. Sanders have reportedly hired defense attorneys in connection with the probe. Sen. Sanders called the accusations against his wife “pretty pathetic” and politically motivated.

Judicial Watch says Mrs. Sanders sent a letter to an attorney representing the HowardCenter group home in January 2011, saying she was having trouble evicting the 16 residents.

“It is simply not fair to expect the College to continue to carry the burden of the expenses associated with housing both you population and ours until February 2012,” she said in the letter Judicial Watch obtained under a public records request.

“The home for the disabled was being leased from the diocese and Jane was supposed to help relocate the residents, not evict them,” Judicial Watch reported. The group contended the comments showed Mrs. Sanders’ heartlessness.

The office of Sen. Sanders, I-Vt., did not return a request for comment.

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Vermont initiated eviction proceedings against HowardCenter after selling the 32-acre property to Burlington College, Vermont’s alternative weekly Seven Days reported in March, 2011. The eviction notice gave HowardCenter until November 2010 to leave.

But the diocese extended the notice after HowardCenter said it needed more time to find another home, the paper reported.

Mrs. Sanders was chagrined to be caught up in what amounted to an eviction of mentally disabled tenants, according to the paper.

“We are not trying to be the bad guys here,” she was quoted as saying.  “We have always said that we’d be helpful and we’d try to help them as they found a new home — and we have. At first, we agreed to delay for one semester, and even that was pushing it for us. Six months beyond that is not realistic.”

Sanders  told the weekly that Burlington and the diocese had made financial sacrifices to allow HowardCenter to stay past the eviction date.

“We thought a year’s time was appropriate, and it’s worrisome that they haven’t found a place yet, but there is really no choice any longer,” she was quoted as saying.

How the $15 wage is already killing jobs in Seattle

Unintended consequences.


Via NY Post: Spiking the minimum wage statewide may appeal to a Democrat eyeing a future run for national office. But it’s a bad idea for New York.

Don’t believe us? Look how it’s working out in real life at a town already en route to a $15 minimum — Seattle. An American Enterprise Institute report sums up the results. Spoiler alert: It’s not pretty.

Seattle passed its $15 law in June 2014. Starting last April, it raised the minimum from $9.32 (the state minimum wage) to $10 for certain business, $11 for others.

Increases to $12, $12.50 and $13 an hour began taking effect for most employers this Jan. 1. The jumps will continue until the minimum hits the full $15 an hour in 2017 for some before it’s universal in 2019. Yet even the early impact is harsh.

The AEI study, worked up from Bureau of Labor Statistics’ monthly surveys, shows that, between April and December last year, Seattle saw the biggest employment drop in any nine-month period since 2009 — a full year into the Great Recession.

The city unemployment rate rose a full percentage point.

Before the minimum-wage hikes begin, Seattle employment tracked the rest of the nation — slowly rising from the 2008-09 bottom. But it started to plunge last spring, as the new law began to kick in.

Furthermore, Seattle’s loss of 10,000 jobs in just the three months of September, October and November was a record for any three-month period dating back to 1990.

Meanwhile, employment outside the city limits — which had long tracked the rate in Seattle proper — was soaring by 57,000 and set a new record high that November.

Seattle is learning that it can’t unilaterally ignore basic economics. Businesses adapt to government dictates. To survive mandated pay hikes, they lay off employees, or avoid new new hires to control costs.

America, meet your future

The United States, like Brazil, has elected an openly Socialist president.

We can see our future in the streets of Brazil if we don’t stand up and resist this trend. In the 20th century, the Socialists committed enough worldwide genocide to make even the most radical muslim blush with inadequacy.

Today’s article in WND.com details horrifying breaking news that should send a warning to us all.

TROOPS BULLDOZE HOMES, LEAVE THOUSANDS HOMELESS

Soldiers wearing U.N. logos evict whole towns in land grab

By Alex Newman

Thousands of poor Brazilian families are living in wretched conditions at make-shift refugee camps after being evicted from their homes at gunpoint by federal forces, some of whom were sporting United Nations logos, according to sources.

Towns literally have been wiped off the map, and no compensation was offered to the victims. About 400,000 acres of land were expropriated in the latest operation.

Residents in the Siua-Missu area in the state of Mato Grosso battled heavily armed federal police and military forces for weeks using sticks, rocks, Molotov cocktails and other crude weapons.

In the end, however, the powerful national government forces were overwhelming.

Virtually all of the residents have now been displaced, living in squalor, packed into school gymnasiums in nearby towns. Others are living on charity under plastic tarps propped up with sticks with no clean water or sewage services.

Leaders of the feeble resistance, meanwhile, are being hunted down by authorities for punishment.

The Left Are Pushing for a Civil War

ARE AMERICANS READY FOR ALL-OUT CIVIL WAR?

Source: JB Williams – (9/6/11) – Republished by Patriots News.

As the political left drives the U.S. economy towards the brink of no return and an increasing number of average Americans find themselves in desperate financial situations, crime is on the rise and social tensions are rocketing towards a historic level in the land of milk and honey.

Yes, I am predicting the Second American Civil War, but only because the political left is working around the clock to incite outright socio-economic and race warfare in America.

Unlike any prior American administration, this one is intentionally destroying what’s left of America’s free-market prosperity and now they are openly calling for all-out war on all patriotic Americans. Obama’s civilian army is ready to roll in the streets of the U.S.A. and as labor union leader Jimmy Hoffa, Jr. put it at a Labor Day weekend rally, “Let’s take these son of a bitchs out!” – telling Barack Obama that “we (labor union members) are your army and we are ready to march.”

President Barack Obama proudly accepts Hoffa’s call for war against the 88% of Americans who do not belong to labor unions.

Days before, leaders of the Democratic Socialist Black Caucus called upon blacks to begin race wars against white Americans in the streets, and make runs on U.S. banks to cause even more economic chaos during the most tumultuous economic time since the Great Depression.

In Cincinnati Ohio, Vice President Joseph Biden spoke to the AFL-CIO referred to patriotic Americans as “barbarians at the gate” and called upon all union thugs to “stand up” against American taxpayers who have been Taxed Enough Already. Biden claimed that “this is a fight for the heart and soul of the labor movement in America” – and that this is the time for all union thugs to stand and fight against their sworn enemy, the American taxpayer.

Never before in U.S. history has an administration taken such overt actions to create a class/race war in America, using the army they built out of minority groups, without whom, a Democrat Party would not even exist today.

Democrats operating under the Democratic Socialists of America groups, the Black Caucus and Progressive Caucus, led by the Obama administration, have seized total control of the Democrat Party, the White House, the federal legislature and the federal judiciary.

When the group was asked if Democratic Socialism was in competition with the Democrat Party, they responded as follows;

No, we are not a separate party. Like our friends and allies in the feminist, labor, civil rights, religious, and community organizing movements, many of us have been active in the Democratic Party. We work with those movements to strengthen the party’s left wing, represented by the Congressional Progressive Caucus. The process and structure of American elections seriously hurts third party efforts. Winner-take-all elections instead of proportional representation, rigorous party qualification requirements that vary from state to state, a presidential instead of a parliamentary system, and the two-party monopoly on political power have doomed third party efforts. We hope that at some point in the future, in coalition with our allies, an alternative national party will be viable. For now, we will continue to support progressives who have a real chance at winning elections, which usually means left-wing Democrats.

The Progressive Caucus was formed by proud socialist Bernie Sanders of Vermont and the Black Caucus was formed by proud communist John Conyers of Michigan.

Democrats, funded largely by the international socialist labor movement for decades, destroyed American manufacturing forcing almost all private sector manufacturing jobs off-shore and leaving over sixty-percent of union workers employed in government jobs.

Now that the federal and state budget well has run dry, and the private sector is no longer able to carry the unsustainable weight of government employment, Democrats are calling for all-out war against American taxpayers in a final hour effort to save the labor unions that make the Democrat Party possible.

Over the last five years, since Democrats regained control of the U.S. federal purse strings in 2006, the national debt has sky-rocketed from 64% of GDP to more than 100% of GDP. Black unemployment has doubled to an all-time high and union employment is now almost 100% dependent upon government jobs or government contracts.

Meanwhile, we have only 25% of the nation’s private sector workers paying for an unsustainable level of government, both at the state and federal level. There is no choice but to bust the labor unions that now survive on taxpayer-funded government employment alone, and the grip they hold on Washington DC. The situation is economically unsustainable and Democrats know it. The only nations turning the corner on their economic woes are the nations facing this fact.

But without labor unions, there will be no Democrat Party today. So, Democrats are publicly calling for all-out war in the streets in an effort to save the 12% of American workers who wear the union label and fund the Democrat Party.

Are American taxpayers ready for more than café latte rallies and T-Shirt sales at Tea Party conventions that few people can afford to attend anymore? Are they ready for war?

Whether they are ready or not, war is coming to America because the political left will bring class and race war to every street in America very shortly. As Democrats have ground the American economy to a halt, they rally their civilian troops to violence in the streets and they make no apologies for it.

Democratic Socialist messiah Barack Obama is fading fast. His current ratings make Jimmy Carter look both smart and popular. Obama & Co. are following European nations right into the economic toilet, putting the labor movement ahead of American interests in treasonous fashion. But they are not stopping here…

On September 17th, Constitution Day, leftists across the country are planning a “Day of Rage” against free-market capitalism in the streets of New York.

On October 6th, American leftists plan an “Egypt style occupation of Washington DC” aimed at forcing every American taxpayer to accept their international socialist demands or pay the consequences.

Although Obama’s Department of Homeland Security has pre-labeled every American citizen who speaks out in defense of the U.S. Constitution or morality as a “potential domestic terrorist,” it is the Democratic Left who is actually preparing to take their war to the streets of America.

Are Americans ready to defend their way of life at all cost?

They won’t just face Black Panthers and radical labor union thugs in the streets. Over the last few years, Democrats have also worked to increase anti-American sentiments among the radical Muslim community and the illegal immigrant community in America.

Illegal immigrants think they are right to demand full citizenship rights in America, including full voting rights before the 2012 election. Muslims are convinced that they have a right to take over American communities and force Sharia Law in any area they can gain numeric control over, as the Obama administration provides opportunity and cover.

If you think Obama’s Justice Department is going to take any action against any of these anti-American acts, think again. Eric Holder’s department is fully behind this treasonous agenda.

If you think the American press is going to shine a light on any of this, think again. The American press, like American academia, has been in the international socialist bag for decades now. They won’t report on any of this until they are reporting the body bag count in cities across America.

Are Americans really ready to defend the U.S. Constitution and way of life? I see no evidence that they are.

The Tea Party is the most active resistance in America today and they are still busy playing politics, trying to gain a seat at the table of anti-American corruption instead of upsetting the table of political corruption.

Despite years of efforts to educate the masses in America, most Americans remain out of touch with reality, including most in the Tea Party movement, who still think they can stop this massive international movement to destroy America by electing a few more Republicans in 2012.

Let there be no mistake – Americans are already at war for the future of freedom and liberty in America – they just don’t know it yet. And, the enemy is not only within—it is on both sides of the political aisle.

If you don’t believe me, read this Federal Report on Global Governance originated during the Clinton years, but left intact throughout the Bush years.

Whether Americans want war or not, it is coming. The international left has been preparing for this war on Americans for decades and they can smell total victory in the air now. Even the most patriotic American is likely to vote for socialism as opposed to total economic collapse and chaos today.

How many Americans are awake, aware and prepared to defend the American way of life?

Nobody knows the answer to this question and most of the time—we have no idea who is really ready to fight until the fight begins. But any serious resistance is likely to come from the community of more than “twenty-five million military veterans, who are coming together with very deep concerns about the true state of our union.

I can only pray that we still have enough true Americans left to defend freedom, because if freedom does not exist in America, it won’t exist anywhere on earth.

If you are not ready for what’s coming, you had better get ready, because it’s coming, whether you are ready or not. And it’s coming very soon! The left will not take no for an answer. The left has us between a rock and a hard place and there is no painless way out of this corner.

Evil unchallenged will prevail every time. Let no evil go unchallenged from this moment forward. We cannot pass this mess on to our children.
