    SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) — A retired Michigan optometrist faces federal charges for allegedly leaving nooses and notes mocking the Black Lives Matter movement inside a couple’s truck and near or inside stores as well as placing threatening phone calls. Kenneth David Pilon, 61, of Saginaw, is charged with six counts of interfering with federally protected activities — a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in prison and fines, federal prosecutors announced Wednesday. The charges allege that “Pilon intimidated and attempted to intimidate citizens from participating lawfully in speech and peaceful assembly opposing the denial of Black people’s right to enjoy police protection and services free from brutality,” an FBI special agent wrote in an affidavit. Pilon’s attorney, Barry Wolf, was not readily available for comment, the Detroit Free Press reported. The Associated Press left a message Thursday for Wolf requesting comment on the charges. Federal prosecutors allege that on June 14, 2020, Pilon used racial slurs while calling nine Starbucks stores in Michigan about workers who might be wearing Black Lives Matter T-shirts. Those calls came days after Starbucks...
    Donald Trump’s former vice president says he “wants to tell the story of (his) life in the service of Americans.” Simon & Schuster, his publishing house, announced on Wednesday that Republican Mike Pence, the former vice president of Donald Trump, plans to publish the first part of his autobiography in 2023, a tip for the 2024 U.S. presidential election. “I am grateful to have been able to present the story of my life in the service of Americans, from Congress to the position of Governor of Indiana and later as Vice President of the United States,” writes the former radio presenter from 2017 to 2021 and is a lawyer by training. “His revealed autobiography will be official in the works of one of the most important presidential posts in American history,” a Simon & Schuster official said in the same statement. Multi-million dollar contract Mike Pence will review his life, his work and “his Christian experience” and “many important moments in management,” Trump promises to the author, who announces he has signed a two-book deal. “The release of the first...
    With Barack Obama’s latest book hitting shelves Nov. 17, there’s buzz in politics — and publishing — that President Trump is being courted for a new tome on his time in the White House. But insiders have differing views about how rich a deal Trump could command. One source familiar with the President told Page Six on Tuesday: “Trump is being bombarded with book and TV deals that could be worth a staggering $100 million.” Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama inked a reported $65 million deal with Crown in 2017. The source said Trump was also simultaneously being courted by far-right TV outlets, and, “book and TV deals are plan-B if he doesn’t win the vote war. Translate 70 million votes into viewers and record book sales. All the anti-Trump books have made big bucks, so this from the Donald is a surefire hit.” A top book source threw cold water on those overheated estimates, saying the numbers “don’t sound accurate.” (An AP report on Tuesday said that editors at Crown and Knopf were coy when asked...
    Chauncey DeVega August 18, 2020 10:00AM (UTC) The Democratic National Convention is taking place this week — but not exactly in Milwaukee, as originally scheduled. For the first time ever, both of this year's major-party conventions will be almost entirely "virtual," held online because of the pandemic. With this event, the 2020 presidential race is now entering its final stretch, with less than three months to go until Election Day. Joe Biden will now be formalized as the 2020 Democratic nominee, with Sen. Kamala Harris of California as his running mate. She is the first black woman to be part of a presidential ticket, and the third woman to be a vice-presidential nominee for a major party.  : Opinion polls show that Biden and Harris enjoy great support among Democratic voters, and hold a significant lead over Donald Trump and Mike Pence at this stage. But these basic facts do not fully channel the malignant reality of America in the Age of Trump, where we have seen a season of death from the coronavirus pandemic and the Trump regime's criminally negligent response, and now...
    President Donald Trump let long-time reporter Bob Woodward in again to write another book about him. This one will be called Rage, scheduled to be released Sept. 15. According to a CNN exclusive, Woodward did more than a dozen interviews with the president for the book at the White House, Mar-a-Lago and over the phone. Woodward’s previous book Fear, was attacked by the president as “lies” and using “phony sources.” In this case, Trump is the source. He was previously furious when his staff didn’t tell him about Woodward’s multiple attempts to interview him for Fear. “‘Rage’ is the most important book Simon & Schuster will publish this year. Every voter should read it before Nov. 3,” said Simon & Schuster CEO Jonathan Karp. The same publisher also was responsible for Mary Trump’s tell-all book and John Bolton’s book. So, the fact that he says this is more important than those books is sure to make it a huge seller. “Woodward is known to record all of his interviews with the permission of his subjects and...

In a lawsuit late last month, Robert cited a confidentiality agreement Mary signed in 2001 in settling a suit over family money and related issues. (Mary's father, Fred Trump Jr., died in 1981; she and her brother, Fred Trump III, had sued over late patriarch Fred Trump Sr.'s estate in 2000.) On Monday a New York judge ruled against Robert's claims, which targeted both Mary and her publisher, Simon & Schuster. Robert had sought...
    The controversial book by Donald Trump’s niece, Mary Trump, will be released on July 14 due to the great interest it has aroused The publisher Simon & Schuster brought forward the publication date of the controversial book written by the niece of the President of the United States, Mary Trump, and that a judge temporarily blocked at the end of June, so it can now be purchased from the next July 14. The company planned to publish the book. ‘Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man‘(‘ Too much, but never enough: How my family created the most dangerous man in the world ‘) on July 28, but decided to do it two weeks before given the “high demand and the extraordinary interest ”that the work has aroused, according to a spokesman for Simon & Schuster. The publisher’s decision comes after a Court of Appeals last week raised a temporary lock imposed by a Dutchess County judge in New York state, following a complaint filed by Donald Trump’s brother, Robert Trump. Robert Trump...
    The release date of the Trump family tell-all book, which was written by President Trump's niece against the president's wishes, has been moved up by two weeks. Mary Trump's book, titled Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man, was scheduled to hit shelves on July 28, but the publisher,Simon & Schuster, announced on Monday that it will now be released on July 14. The decision to push up the release was made "due to high demand and extraordinary interest in this book," the publisher said, according to CNN. A legal fight is being waged by the president's brother, Robert S. Trump, who is arguing the book violates a confidentiality agreement that Mary Trump signed nearly 20 years ago. A temporary restraining order against Simon & Schuster has been lifted, but one remains in place on Mary Trump, barring her from commenting publicly on the matter, ahead of a July 10 hearing. “The act by a sitting president to muzzle a private citizen is just the latest in a series of disturbing behaviors which...
    The publishers of Mary Trump's book have revealed they have already printed 75,000 copies and did not know about her non-disclosure agreement with her uncle and his siblings until recently. Simon & Schuster said it had already sent vast numbers of the tell-all memoir to booksellers in a rebuttal to the Trumps winning a temporary injunction against them on Tuesday. The publisher's chief executive Jonathan Karp said they only found out two weeks ago that Mary signed an agreement not to write a memoir back in 2001. During the negotiation for the book, which Simon & Schuster won after a bidding war with 10 other publishers, Mary claimed she had the 'full power and authority' to write it and there was 'no impediment' to its publication. Simon & Schuster claim that Mary's book, which the blurb says will talk about the 'toxic' Trump family, will actually provide 'valuable eyewitness source material for historians and citizens'. They also revealed that Mary contacted them 'unsolicited' with the proposal for the book titled 'Too Much and Never Enough, How My Family Created the...
    Reuters July 1, 2020 0 Comments A New York judge on Tuesday temporarily blocked Donald Trump’s niece from publishing a tell-all book that offers an unflattering portrait of the U.S. president and his family. Justice Hal Greenwald of the state supreme court in Poughkeepsie, New York, issued a temporary restraining order against Mary Trump and her publisher Simon & Schuster at the request of Robert Trump, the president’s brother. Robert Trump has said the scheduled July 28 release of “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man” would violate a confidentiality agreement tied to the estate of his father Fred Trump Sr, who died in 1999. Mary Trump is Fred Trump’s granddaughter. Mary Trump and Simon & Schuster appealed Greenwald’s order less than 2-1/2 hours after it was issued. Their lawyer Theodore Boutrous called Greenwald’s order a “prior restraint on core political speech that flatly violates the First Amendment” of the U.S. Constitution. “This book, which addresses matters of great public concern and importance about a sitting president in an election year, should not...
    A New York judge has temporarily blocked President Donald Trump's niece from publishing a damning tell-all memoir about the First Family. Mary Trump's upcoming book, Too Much and Never Enough, How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man, is due to be published on 28 July. But on Tuesday a judge granted a restraining order to Ms Trump's uncle, the president's brother, Robert. Lawyers for Ms Trump say they will "immediately appeal" the ruling. "The trial court's temporary restraining order is only temporary but it still is a prior restraint on core political speech that flatly violates the First Amendment," said her lawyer, Ted Boutrous. "This book, which addresses matters of great public concern and importance about a sitting president in an election year, should not be supressed even for one day," he continued. The book is being published by Simon & Schuster and has already reached fourth on Amazon's best-seller list ahead of its release.

    A judge on Tuesday granted Robert Trump a Temporary Restraining Order halting the publication of Mary Trump’s upcoming tell-all, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man. The injunction marks the first, tentative win for President Donald Trump’s younger brother in his war to stop the publication of his niece’s memoir, which The Daily Beast revealed earlier this month would contain allegations embarrassing to the First Family. The Trump siblings have maintained that the book, to be published by Simon & Schuster, violates the confidentiality clause that Mary Trump signed off on in the settlement of family patriarch Fred Trump Sr.’s estate. Robert Trump and his celebrity attorney Charles Harder made their first play to block the book to Queens Surrogate Court—but the judge junked the suit almost immediately, telling elder Trumps to refile in state Supreme Court. They took the advice, and submitted a new request for a temporary restraining order in Robert Trump’s home turf of Dutchess County, in upstate New York. Their arguments seemed to at least somewhat persuade Judge Hal...
