Alec Baldwin Gets Serious with Legal Hires as ‘Rust’ Shooting Fallout Continues

And there are surely more lawsuits to come.

Published

Hollywood has long harbored an underbelly of connivery and betrayal, fueled by the disproportionate amount of cash that fuels the movie industry.  Handshakes aren’t worth much in Tinsel Town, and everybody is out to get their share.

It’s endemic to the celebrity lifestyle, in many ways, so when something truly does go wrong, those involved are well-trained in the art of milking that tragedy for everything that it’s worth.

Alec Baldwin, whose lengthy career in Hollywood has undoubtedly seen him on both ends of these raw deals, is now lawyering up, knowing full well that his accidental shooting of a cinematographer on the set of his latest movie “Rust” is making other attorneys salivate.

Alec Baldwin has hired attorney Aaron S. Dyer of New York-based law firm Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman after being targeted by multiple lawsuits for his involvement in the “Rust” set shooting, Fox News Digital has confirmed.

The news comes after Baldwin was targeted by lawsuits filed by script supervisor Mamie Mitchell and gaffer Serge Svetnoy.

The suit was a heavy one.

The lawsuit claimed that Baldwin “intentionally, without just cause or excuse, cocked and fired a loaded gun” even though the upcoming scene “did not call for the cocking and firing of a firearm.” The lawsuit also claimed Baldwin pointed and fired the gun at Hutchins, Joel Souza and Mitchell even though that was against protocol.

Svetnoy’s lawsuit also noted that Baldwin was only supposed to have pointed the gun at the camera and not anyone else. Svetnoy claimed Baldwin “owed a duty” to the gaffer and other crew members to handle the gun as he would a loaded weapon.

He claimed he was hit by “discharge materials” and “suffered injury, including severe emotional distress, as a direct and proximate result of the incident.”

Baldwin may also face other litigious trouble in the incident, as he was not only the shooter, but a producer on the film whose responsibility to the crew may lead some to file civil suits as well.

Major Conservative Personality Flips on 45: ‘Trump is Done!’

Are they really this out of tough with the Republican Party?

Published

on

On the right side of the aisle, there are few storylines as trite and tawdry as that of former President Donald Trump’s potential bid for reelection in 2024, and all of the strange circumstances that go along with it.

First, Trump is battling a number of challenges to his political career.  There is not only the January 6th select committee, that appears to be aiming their efforts at having Trump prosecuted in the coming months, but there is also the New York State Attorney General, who is investigating the Trump Organization and attempting to attack the former President through the targeting of his children. 

But now there are other issues for Trump, particularly as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis appears to be posturing himself for a run at the GOP nomination himself.  Trump has been quoted as wondering why DeSantis won’t simply support his own efforts, and the Sunshine State lawmaker has responded brutally.

This has led one of America’s most recognizable conservative pundits to speak up.

 Conservative pundit Ann Coulter is predicting the end of Donald Trump’s hegemony in the GOP, saying the former president “is done.”

“Trump is done,” Coulter, a onetime Trump booster turned critic, wrote in an email to The New York Times. “You guys should stop obsessing over him.”

Coulter’s comments came in an article published in the Times on Sunday about the mounting tensions between Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) amid speculation of a potential showdown for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.

This wasn’t the first time that Coulter has attacked Trump in recent days.

Coulter pounced on Trump over those comments in a tweet last week calling the former president a “liar and con man.”

“EXCLUSIVE: Trump is demanding to know Ron DeSantis’s booster status, and I can now reveal it,” Coulter wrote. “He was a loyal booster when Trump ran in 2016, but then he learned our president was a liar and con man whose grift was permanent. I hope that clears things up.”

While this certainly may make it seem as though Trump is facing some sort of serious threat to his potential nomination, polls have nearly universally shown him as the odds-on favorite for the 2024 nomination, besting even DeSantis by a vast number of points.

UFC Chief Laments Lack of Available Monoclonal COVID Treatments

This, just days after Florida accused the federal government of hoarding the life-saving treatments.

Published

on

If you were to ask the government about the options that we have for defeating the coronavirus pandemic, you are likely to hear but one side of the story:  Vaccines.

The Biden administration has been unwavering in their support of these inoculations, even going so far as to attempt to install a constitutionally unsound vaccine mandate that took only two months for the Supreme Court to gut.

But there are other options too, induing the widely popular and effective monoclonal antibody treatments.  And, despite the government’s insistence on pushing vaccines on the masses, the Biden administration has also appeared to corner the market on these life-saving medicines…and they’re being awfully stingy with them.

“I bet I could get some f*****g pain pills quicker than I could get monoclonal antibodies,” UFC President Dana White said in regards to the rationing of monoclonal antibodies for treatment of COVID-19 during a press conference on Saturday following the UFC 45 Vegas in Las Vegas, NV.

MMA Weekly asked White about a left-wing censorship campaign targeting Joe Rogan under the auspices of “misinformation” involving an “open letter” from assorted medical professionals and academic calling on Spotify, the distributor or Rogan’s eponymous podcast, to “take action” against what they described as “mass-misinformation” which is “medically and culturally dangerous.”

The exchange was lively to say the least.

MMA Weekly asked, “I was wondering what your thoughts were with the 200-plus doctors trying to put pressure on Spotify saying that Joe’s a menace.”

White replied, “Are they really? Well how about this, ever since I came out and said what I did, It’s almost impossible now to get monoclonal antibodies. They’re making it so you can’t get them — medicine that absolutely works, they’re keeping from us. I don’t want to get too political and start getting into all this s***, but ivermectin and monoclonal antibodies have been around for a long time. Now, all of a sudden, you can’t dig them up to save your life. The doctors won’t give them to you.”

The criticism arrives amid a flurry of complaints from Florida officials, complaining that the Biden administration simply will not ship these treatments to them, and without providing any reason as to why.
