Finally: The Left Will Get Theirs
[Comments enabled]

It's about damn time.

More than 50 media organizations, celebrities and politicians were sent letters from lawyers representing the Covington Catholic High School student seen in a controversial viral video -- the first step in a possible libel and defamation lawsuit -- and the teen's legal team also released a 15-minute video that they say shows "the truth" about his interactions at last month's March For Life.

I hope they all wind up bankrupt and out of business, and every single one of their employees is ejected from their homes and is forced to live on Lower Wacker Drive.  That's what they deserve for this crap.

It's not just one instance either; the SPLC has been targeted as well (it's about damn time) for their attempted destruction of Gavin McInnes, founder of Proud Boys.

In a statement released on after the filing McInnes said, “They have harassed me, my family, and my friends to a level of tortious interference that goes well into sabotage.”

May he win and destroy the SPLC with a ruinous judgment.

All you fine SJW folks out there -- perhaps you're next.

Perhaps -- just perhaps -- the rest of the nation has gotten tired enough of this crap to push back in ways that will really hurt.

The left will either want to drag this out for years, or quietly settle to make it go away. I hope Nick Sandmann holds firm and sees this through to the destruction of every last one of these slimeballs.

Think about it though. They've got clear proof, video for days, no attempts to get at the truth, and a lawyer who smells blood.

They have no reason to settle. It'll take years and years, but it could be epic.

This kid had his reputation ruined. Nothing short of public apologies should be accepted, which means acknowledging wrongdoing.

I'd feel a whole lot better about "the left will get theirs" if the entire so-called "justice" system had not become corrupted with systemic rot and actually adhered to the Constitution and utilized rational, objective thought processes.

It has long appeared to me that juries almost always decide on "feelz" alone. Unfortunately, it seems that many judges at all levels are also onboard the SJW and "feelz" bandwagon in their rulings.

Covington Kid went on a school sanctioned field trip, he was waiting with his friends for a bus. Covington Kid was singled out by an activist who non-physically threatened him, yet he stood firm. The only crime Covington Kid committed was being at a school function and acting respectfully.

What is the left's fascination with the wanton harm of American children and minorities? Why does the left believe it is ok to celebrate the destruction of American values?

They may have picked their own Waterloo, if this would have been a white man instead of a white teen male the evils of White Patriarchy would still be in the news. If this would have been a teen with softer values, whoes parents felt the best thing to do was sit down and be quiet, this would look different. The fact that Covington Kid has the guts and fortitude to stay in and fight this, may just be a pivotal point in uncovering the abuse and lies of the left.

It is sad to say, but a white man could not fight for his honor the way the white teen male is. The left would love to go after him, destroy him and you better believe they still are trying and will continue to.

I hope he stands strong and these idiot SJW's are harmed financially.

I heard Alyssa Millano was one of the defendants. I had a crush on her, if she loses all her money she could come to my place once a week to clean it. But I would have her clean it naked. However there is still a huge problem, her mouth. What could I put in her mouth to keep her from talking....Think....Think....Hmmmm there has to be something I could shove in her pie hole that would keep her from talking as she cleaned my place naked.

This ain't over, yet, not by a long shot; meaning, the crazed Leftys (including the mouthpieces of you know what over at the MSM) are at war with anybody who doesn't buy into their socialist agenda. And we all know what that agenda is, e.g., importing tens of millions of more ignorant ****hole socialists from turd world countries to vote for higher taxes and to take our guns away.

Tens of millions of ****hole Socialists, as I call them, are hell bent on fouling the U.S.A. --- just like many of them fouled their own nests back where they came from.

President Donald Trump exclamated last night at the SOTU Address that the United States would never become a socialist country. I say, it's already a socialist country well on the way to becoming a fully fledged Marxist one. The ****hole Socialist Society of D.C. is going to attempt a complete usurpation of what's left of capitalism and a total abridgement of the Bill of Rights. Donald's words be damned.

Lastnight, did you see Nicolas Maduro's daughter, AOC, all dressed up in white? Right along with all of the other socialists? ---the Socialist Snowflakes all dressed in white with their hands red with baby's blood.... How fashionably and politically correct of them. Marxist virtue signaling at it's very best.

Let me put it to you this way: anybody who can kill a baby without regret (especially a delivered baby) as these blood guilty socialists can, and then all dress up in white, like they did last night, means that they are capable of any heinous crime; and those virtue signallers will have no problem killing you and yours, too.

Currently, complete AR-15 platforms are selling for less than $400 in some places. And that's a deal. Supplies of ammunition are abundant right now, too. In other words, it's a buyer's market. Which means now might be a good time to gun up even more. Why? Because it'll be the baby killers and their ****hole People Army who'll fire the first shot as they attempt to loot your life savings. You can count on that.

Soon, the official number is going to be 22T in our national debt. The real number is much larger. Just like the real number of ****hole People in our country is much larger. And one day the numbers are going to matter when critical mass is reached and the SHTF.... Don't be the guy without a plan..

This will be an interesting case.

A lawyer friend and I were talking about it. He said "I would never take it. To risky for my business. But they have an excellent case!"

His concern is that the people named have ties to a great many more with a lot of influence. Working in IL, he said that you learn very quickly who not to defend or go after if you want a long and lucrative career.

Still, this is a great precedent. If they are successful expect a dozen more suits to be filed.

I kid you not on this one....

I had to report for jury duty this summer. When the judge was giving us instructions before the process of picking the jury he went into this big speech about how he would NEVER stand for Jury Nullification in his court room and how it was illegal in Ohio. If anyone was inclined to participate in jury nullification they were allowed to leave now with no questions.





This ended up being a gang banger who point blank killed an innocent young girl(BYSTANDER) when the intended recipient moved out of the way. There was irrefutable security video camera proof, so it didn't fit this situation.

That said, the people on jury duty all felt "challenged" and would have been MORE likely to do jury nullification because of the liberal judge overstepping his authority.

These kinds of judges are becoming the norm. Hopefully he doesn't run up against one of them.

Reason: addl info.

**** this magic black robed ******* in his ass with a rusty chainsaw.

All it takes is for one juror to be an upholder of morality. Just do not mention the words "jury nullification".

Again, **** this magic black robed piece of ****.

Refusal to recognize jury nullification is essentially the judge in contempt of the courtroom.

Bastard deserves the maximum sentence for contempt and disbarment after a chainsaw enema.

So can judges be charged with color of law violations in their courtrooms?

My guess is no.

The current position seems to be that all those involved in the "justice" system (cops, prosecutors, judges) have immunity for damn near anything that they do no matter how illegal it might be for a regular person. Judges generally are not subject to punishment via normal legal processes for any transgressions in the courtroom, but can be "reviewed" by other judges who usually stand behind whatever their cronies may do, but may occasionally decide to slap them on the wrist in extreme circumstances. A judge would probably have to be filmed taking an envelope full of cash or axe-murder someone in the courtroom before he'd be held personally accountable for anything.

<blockquote>You know as well as I do, this is a pipe dream and never gonna happen.</blockquote>

Actually, this is the perfect case for it to happen on. Sandmann is a minor. Sandmann is not a public figure. Both of these mean that it is much easier to prosecute, especially given the fact that journalists are supposed to have standards. Finally, there is video evidence of the entirety of the event, even showing Sandmann hushing his fellow students.

If he doesn't get 1,000,000 a piece from these, it will be a travesty of injustice.

The best small pistol is the one you have with you when you absolutely need it right now. With that said much depends on hand size; if you can't hit what you aim at then it doesn't matter what you have.

There's no point in carrying a weapon you cannot fire accurately, so the first task is to figure out what the smallest/lightest/whatever-requirements-are weapon is that you CAN shoot accurately, and THEN figure out whether you can carry it reasonably and if so, how.

Coming at it the other way is IMHO "doing it wrong."

Another reason why this is a good test case is that the plaintiff is a Kentucky resident. As a result, Kentucky has jurisdiction, so the defendants can be sued in Kentucky. On the coasts and in other SJW-infested places, there is a real risk that the case would get sent to a liberal activist judge who would find some excuse to rule for the defendants. There's also a risk of the jury being sympathetic to the defendants. This is much less likely in Kentucky.

And once a judgment is issued in Kentucky, it can be enforced anywhere in the USA (although there are some additional hoops to jump through when crossing state lines).

Any case law resulting from this series of lawsuits is potentially usable outside Kentucky as well.

The fact that any lawsuits involving you are likely to happen in the jurisdiction where you reside is another reason not to reside in areas overrun by the left.

If you are on a jury and want reasons for voting guilty/not guilty, take notes. If you decide to hang the jury, those notes reduce the chances that the judge will accuse you of jury nullification. They are evidence that you were paying attention and didn't just dream up a verdict. If you get questioned on why you aren't budging, you refer back to the notes: "When the witness said this he looked down and to his left, a commonly known indication of lying, and he sounded like he was making it up." "The other witness said that and both his body language and words were much more believable to me." Emphasize the "reasonable doubt" part of the testimony. The court reporter is getting the words, but doesn't necessarily get the actions or tone of voice that go along with the words.

If the pressure gets too much, ask them how they want you to vote. That should shut them up, particularly if the reporter is recording the conversation. One of the two sides (defense or prosecution) will be happy with your choice, so they should be supporting your view, especially if you have the notes to back you up.

(Note: This post is my opinion. I'm not a lawyer and didn't stay in a Holiday Express last night. Use this at your own risk.)
